This Quarter's Indie Ignites Releases (+ @Goodreads #giveaways, and more)

Welcome to the first ever Indie Ignites Quarterly Report! With so many members in Indie Ignites, there's always a steady stream of book releases (and giveaways, and blog tours, and... you get my point) so we figured it would be convenient to share a sort of "quarterly summary" every three months in order to share lots of links and info in one specific place! :)


We have three releases this month:

Incubus (Episode #1)

The first installment in Rachel Bateman's (@RachelBateman) serial, Incubus (YA paranormal) came out January 7th. Expect new installments to be released every first Tuesday of the month, throughout the year!

Blurb: All Kyle Prideaux wants is a normal life.

But with a serial killer in town, murdering women the same way her mother died seven years ago, and a silent stalker watching her during the day and invading her dreams at night, normal is impossible.

After she's attacked at work one night, Kyle wakes in the hospital to discover things of nightmares exist and walk among us every day.

And she's the only one who can stop them.

If I Speak True (Flora, #1)

Jessica L. Brooks' (@coffeelvnmom) second book, If I Speak True (Flora, 1 -- YA magical realism) came out January 27th

Blurb: Dahlia Kennedy's sixteenth birthday marks a decade of mysterious dahlias arriving and strange, lonely dreams of being in a forest. The only difference this birthday, however, is that for the first time, someone is there with her. And he's practically from a whole other era.

The more often Dahlia visits Rowan in his land of Ambrosia, the stronger their connection grows. But... is Ambrosia real? Is he real? What is going on between the two of them, exactly, and why does he insist that she keep it to herself?

As secrets usually go, however, it's only a matter of time before everything comes out. And when Dahlia finds out the truth of who Rowan is, who she is, and how he really feels -- it’s beyond anything she could have ever imagined.

Prince of Blood and Steel

Nazarea Andrews' (@NazareaAndrewsPrince of Blood and Steel (NA romantic suspense) comes out this Thursday, January 30th (co-written with A.J. Elmore -- @MissVish).

Blurb: Seth Morgan has returned home after two years spent building an alliance that will take his family's crime syndicate to a new level in New York City's black collar society. He expects a warm welcome as heir of the Morgan empire. He hopes to finally marry Nicolette, the woman he's loved his whole life.

What he finds is a different world, one where his family's legacy is in ruins. His big brother, Caleb, has changed into someone cold and bitter, plotting to overthrow their patriarch. And Nicolette, daughter of the criminal banking industry, has left the family entirely.

When a vicious misunderstanding leaves Caleb dead, Seth is left reeling. Desperate for truth, Seth is forced to turn to his only remaining cousin, Emma, for support. As he tries to mend his relationship with Nicolette, he begins a search for answers that will take him from the dirty streets to the highest reaches of their illicit empire.

Torn between the desire to protect those who mean the most to him, and a need to learn more about Caleb's death, he grows distant to protect them. As each secret surfaces, he realizes that the only way to restore his family is to take his place at its head, and fully embrace the brutal way they live.

On February 24th, Nicole Zoltack's (@NicoleZoltackBloodlust (NA epic fantasy romance) will be released. 

Blurb: In a world torn by prejudice and hatred, six races struggled for supremacy. Ivy, the barbarian princess, is unwilling to allow her father to provoke the other races into war and forms an unlikely alliance with Lukor the orc to save her people from utter destruction. Unbeknownst to her, Lukor blames the barbarians for murdering his sister and plans on sabotaging her goal. 

Almost despite each other, they grow to respect each other on their journey to decode secret messages from the trolls. Nothing Ivy can do will stop the war as her father is blinded by bloodlust and incites it himself. Not even killing him and becoming queen can stop the tide. And when bloodlust claims Ivy, forcing her to kill everyone in her path, she must make a choice to destroy even Lukor, whom she may have started to fall for.

Blurb: Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.

Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar.

After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?
