#ETBB2017 Attending Author Miracle Austin
About Miracle Austin...
Miracle Austin works in the social work world by day and the writer’s world at night and weekends. She’s a YA/NA cross-genre hybrid author; adults also enjoy her works.
She’s been writing ever since first hearing Drive by The Cars in junior high, which has been one of her biggest inspirations. She rediscovered her writing passion three years ago and now writing is her therapeutic playground. Her first mini-story, PENS, appeared in www.leaves-of-ink.com.
Horror/parnormal are her favorite genres, but not limited to. She enjoys writing diverse flashes, free-verse poems/mini-stories, short stories, and longer works, while threading various social awareness themes into her stories, at times.
Doll is her first debut YA/NA Paranormal novel, which released on 2-14-16—available both in paperback and e-book. Doll recently won the Purple Dragonfly Butterfly Award, 2nd place in the Young Adult category in 2016.
One reviewer shared this about Doll: "A Tour De Force in YA! I loved this novel from start to finish; the characters were developed thoroughly. I believe that adults can enjoy this book as much as teenagers. I loved how the character Tomie (Toe-me) Dupuy was such a relatable character to me. I was bullied in high school myself, and I used to daydream about being a witch and casting spells on my tormentors, so this book was right up my alley!!! The author, Miracle Austin, is in the realm of the greatest YA horror writers, such as Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine. I really cannot wait to read Doll 2, as I am interested in where Miracle will take us this time!” ~Chanel Harry, author of the Skin Witch: Tales of the Soucouyants *****
Boundless will be her second debut work, which will be a YA/NA eclectic short story collection; it will release in the late Fall of 2016.
Miracle enjoys creating playlists that inspire some of her stories and enjoys attending diverse book festivals and comic cons, where she has been so honored to be one of the panelists on some. She’s a Paranormal/Marvel/DC FanGirl!
She presented as a featured author, and a panelist throughout the Teen Book Fest by the Bay in Corpus Christie, Texas in 2-20-16—her first teen book festival. She hopes to present at many more teen book events and conduct school visits in the future.
The highlights of attending the above functions include opportunities to hang out with author friends and meet new authors/readers.
Miracle is currently working on future works and resides in Texas with her family.
Feel free to contact Miracle anytime and follow her on all the social media outlets.
She enjoys communicating with her readers.

About Alyssa Bailey...
Alyssa Bailey is a dyed in the wool Texan living in the beauty of Southeast Alaska with her husband, her youngest four (of eleven) children, two dogs and two cats. She lives where the sky meets the mountains, the mountains meet the ocean, and the wildlife frolic on land, sea, and air. People, the ultimate interlopers, are wedged in where allowed and are properly thankful for the privilege.
Her first memory of books was when her mother read to her as a small child. She began writing as soon as she could put letters together to form words. Her first story at the age of six was about a performing horse that ran away from the circus. As she got older and read more of a variety of books, she would say, “I can do better than that” and
then rewrite them in her head. She was writing fanfiction before fanfiction was a ‘thing.'
In high school and college, she won journalism and special recognition for her academic and fictional writing. Alyssa is a firm believer in all things spanking. She loves writing about domestic discipline and power exchanges between strong, intelligent women who are not afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give them their space but Alpha enough to keep his woman safe, in spite of herself. Her characters predominately live in Regency England amongst lords and ladies, in the contemporary realm amongst men and women of the world, and all things Cowboy.
Contact her, she loves to chat, and as always, have a Spankolicious day!

“How many drinks?”
“I was not over the limit because I checked with their little portable breathalyzer before we left the club,” she responded smugly. “I didn’t want you to think I didn’t listen to you. I know the limit.”
“That’s nice but not my question.”
He was using the voice. It was the darkly quiet, a force to be reckoned with a voice that she loved to hate. Cheyenne shivered in response just thinking about his so damn sexy voice. She felt the irrational gush as her libido went into immediate overdrive. Again. Quinn leaned into Cheyenne’s space, his breath tickling her ear and his words sending waves of thrilling heat and trepidation through her body.
As his rumbling voice broke the surface, he advised, “I would tread carefully, Piscín, you do not want to feel the leather leaving my mark on you tonight. Truth and attitude will determine the way of this, so tread very carefully.”
Cheyenne quickly glanced at Katie who seemed a little stunned at the dom that was Quinlan O’Connor. She couldn’t let her embarrassment get in her way now. She was not wrong.
He stepped back slightly to repeat his question “I asked you, how. Many. Drinks?”
“Two, all right, just two lousy drinks. Really, they were not much. I learned my lesson the last time, Quinlan.”
Her memory quickly went into play about the time she was riding home with someone who had drank too much at a bachelorette party. It had been the worst spanking of her life by a frightened Quinn.
Quinn sighed and asked, “Did you have dinner first or at the same time?”
Both women shook their heads. Quinn sighed again, this time with resignation. Cheyenne knew what that meant. She looked down at her hands as she nervously twisted them. Quinn caged her chin with his thumb and pointer finger, looking intensely into her eyes for a moment before he spoke, his eyes never leaving hers. Katherine might as well not have been in the room at all.
Katie shivered in the presence of Quinn’s suppressed angry. “You’re like a dom on steroids,” she whispered as she took a step towards the door.
Quinn graced her with a surprised look, shook his head, and sucked in a deep breath, holding it before releasing it. His body visibly relaxed some, and he spoke with less intensity. “So, you had drinks on an empty stomach and believed that if you blew under the limit, it would be appropriate to drive. Right?”
“Right.” Maybe, I mean, sure, that’s right, isn’t it? Another drink might help.

Note from the author: The Chronicles of Dover's Amalgam beginning was a group of stories I wrote for my daughter, Jillian. Her love for reading inspired me to pick up my pen again and the result was our very first hero, Sir Jareth Tremaine. When Jillian and the rest of her siblings became obsessed with Smallville on the CW, enter the superhero factor. Jeremy came into the family of Dover's Amalgam, giving the series a twist of paranormal with host and the dangerous lives they are forced to live. I hope you become immersed in the lives of my charcters as did my children. Each one, from Jareth to his youngest daughter, Honor, will warm your heart and make you wish Dover's Amalgam was nearer to your door. To quote Sir Jareth in the final page of The Guardian: May I be the first to welcome to you the age of Dover's Amalgam!

About Melanie Moreland...
New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
