Coming November 8th 2022

Morgan King had everything she’d needed. Until one dreadful night when a significant piece of it was cruelly ripped away.  
 
Two years on, she really should’ve been over the pain and turmoil that threw her life into a blender like a heartbreak milkshake. And she was. Really. What she’d never gotten over, though, was the change. To her life. To her soul. To the very air through which she moved.
 
The night bus had become her salvation—with a regular driver who knew her quirks and desolations. A distraction from everything that wouldn’t allow her to sleep. Although Morgan had found the deterrence to her thoughts by accident, it was one she’d happily repeat for as long as she needed. 
 
She just didn’t bank on dealing with one. More. Change.
 
The driver.
 
When she finds herself confronted by someone who isn’t the guy who’s helped her the past couple of years, Morgan is once more filled with an uncertainty she has to process. Least of all because she actually likes the new driver. Thinks of him even once she’s tucked beneath the covers and should be sleeping. And Morgan hasn’t thought of another man like this since losing the one she loved …
 
Can the magic of Christmas finally weave a spell around her troubled heart?

Now on Radish and KISS

I have some great news!

My books are now available to read on Radish and KISS!

And just in case you have zero clue what Radish or KISS are …

After spending the past year delving deeper into the many avenues of publishing wide, I stumbled across the rabbit hole of Reading Apps for reaching readers.
Before this, I had no idea what reading apps were, or that they even existed.
It’s a new way of reading, and a new way of reaching readers.

And in case you’re interested enough to look into this more, here’s what you need to know.

1. Download the App(s) to your device of choice
2. Create your account

And if you do, or you’re already on there, carry on reading.

Sassa Daniels Interview, Paranormal Unbound Author


Set the shifter romance free, the readers said… So they did.
Dragons, Bears, Wolves, Vampires, Witches, and more. Delve into the magical tales in this paranormal romance and urban fantasy collection for zero pennies.
What more could you ask for? Snag your happily ever after today!

 

Sassa Daniels, one of the authors featured in Paranormal Unbound,  tells us about her contribution to this anthology: Rejecting the Alpha


He thinks she’s his mate. She has other ideas.

Cast out from her pack after trying to frighten off her alpha’s mate, spoiled pack princess Francesca di Angelo is finally learning to stand on her own two feet.

When Russian alpha, Leonid Sobakhin shows up, insisting she will be his mate, Francesca is determined to defy him.

Will she be able to resist the raw, masculine charms of this alpha male and forge a path of independence? Only if she can hold her nerve.

Rejecting the Alpha is part of the Claimed Mates series. It is a prequel to The Alpha’s Prize, but can be read as a standalone.


Interview

Q: What book/movie was your “gateway drug” into paranormal romance?

It’s hard to remember. I watched loads of vampire and werewolf films when I was young but, if I had to choose one that really piqued my interest in the romantic aspect of the films, I’d have to say Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I really wanted Dracula to get the girl.

Q: Is your story in Paranormal Unbound a stand-alone or does it introduce readers to other characters/ worlds of yours?

It can be read on its own, and you can accept that the ending draws a line under events, but the characters do have their own story – The Alpha’s Prize

Q: IF it is a lead into another world please tell us about that world/those books.

The story fits into my Claimed Mates series. It starts with the MacDonald wolf-shifter pack, who are the last of their kind in Scotland. The first two books, The Alpha’s Mark and Marked by the Wolf take place in Scotland and feature shifter – non-shifter pairings. The third book, Claimed by the Alpha, moves to Italy, where Sadie MacDonald, of the Scottish pack, becomes mate to Italian alpha, Marco di Angelo. Book four in the series, Taken by the Wolves, sees Carolina di Angelo, of the Italian pack, becoming mate to Duncan and Neil Macdonald. It’s set in Scotland. The fifth book, The Alpha’s Prize, features Leonid and Francesca, from Rejecting the Alpha. There’s a sixth book currently being written, which will tell the story of Alessio di Angelo, from the Italian pack and a seventh novella will focus on Davide di Angelo, who pops up briefly in my story for the anthology.

Q: What other Shifters Unleashed anthologies have you participated in/ what stories?

I have a story, Claiming His Mate, in the Alpha Shifters Furever anthology. It tells the story of Christian Vukas, a Croatian alpha, and Erin Phelan, an Irish shifter who’s destined to be his mate, whether she likes it, or not.

Q: What up-coming anthologies can we find more from you? Please tell us about those stories.

I also have stories coming out in the Shifter’s Unleashed anthologies, Cocky Alpha Shifters and Shift Happens. For Cocky Alpha Shifters, I’ve written a story of an arrogant Russian tiger-shifter and a woman sent to research an article into his famous mother’s sudden disappearance from the limelight. I’ve had a lot of fun with this one, since the hero, Alexei, is a cocky swine and my heroine, Eleanor isn’t about to put up with any crap from him. For Shift Happens, I’ve got a couple of ideas I’m playing with, but it’s not due out until later in the year, so I haven’t finalized that one yet.

Q: When you write do you visually base your characters off actors/famous people? Please give some examples.

Sometimes. Gerard Butler was definitely who I had in mind when I wrote Finn MacDonald in The Alpha’s Mark. Michele Morrone, from 365 Days, is who I’ve been thinking about as I write Alessio di Angelo’s story.

Q: Why should we read short stories?

Because they give you a quick, satisfying glimpse at another world. They can also be a great introduction to a new-to-you author, giving you a taste of their style and the type of characters they create.

Q: Random party question: what’s your favorite pizza?

It’s a very specific pizza – the Pollo ad Astra from Pizza Express (a UK chain). It has a thin base, topped with chicken, sweet peppers, red onion, mozzarella, tomato and Cajun spices. But, really, I’ll eat anything as long as it doesn’t have pineapple on it.

Q: What’s coming next for your readers?

In the next month or so, I have the third novel in my Russian Bratva series, The Lenkov Dynasty coming out. I also have a dark fantasy story in the anthology, Captured by Darkness. I’m also finishing off my Claimed Mates wolf-shifter series.

Excerpt


Francesca gasped, her mouth falling open in apparent shock. “What?”

“Your cousin had finally consented to me taking you as my mate.”

Rage flashed in her eyes, the first sign of the temper she was well known for. “Marco has no say in what happens to me.”

Leonid shrugged lazily. “Doesn’t matter. I want you as my mate. I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.”

Taking advantage of her apparent speechlessness at his declaration, Leonid leaned in to kiss her. His lips hovered over hers but, before he could stake his claim, she shoved him away with surprising force. “Get away from me, you filthy mongrel.”Baring his teeth in anger, he grabbed her arm and pulled her up against him. “You are mine, Francesca. The sooner you accept it, the better.”



Sassa Daniels is a USA Today Bestselling Author of steamy romance. Writing across a range of genres including paranormal, sci-fi and contemporary romance, she loves to create strong, dominant heroes and the feisty heroines who’ll challenge them at every turn. Born and raised in the Scottish Highlands, she still lives there with her family. She recently quit the world of academia to focus on writing.

All The Little Things …

Lots of little things are going on in the world of J.A. Belfield, so I figured the best way to share them is in one tidy post.

So, what’s happening? you say?

Well, then, here goes …

1.

We have a new group!
With so many groups focused on Kindle books and Kindle Unlimited, a few of us authors who like to make our books available as widely as possible and cater to those who don’t limit themselves to purchasing from Amazon have grouped together to create a space for exactly that. 
Although the group is currently brand-spanking new, we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure an enjoyable experience for all involved, so we’d love for you to click on the banner below and come join us in our venture.

I’M ON TIKTOK! <<Written in all caps because I can’t actually believe I made the leap.
If you’re a TikTok fan, I’d LOVE to connect. It’s still a little echoey in there for me at the moment.
And who knows? You might even get to see me make a complete fool of myself at some point. 😉

Writing for The Night Bus Before Christmas is COMPLETE!
My first ever Christmas novella will release later this year, and I’m really excited to share it with everyone. Not only does it have a gorgeous, custom-made cover (which I’m forcing myself to sit on until the summer), but a great feel good, heartwarming storyline perfect for its release date.
If you’d like to know more about this upcoming title, please consider adding it to your Goodreads “Want to Read”. Just this simple act offers great exposure for authors. Or, if you really fancy giving it a read when it releases, it is currently available at a special pre-order price!

Review Team!

With my new writing schedule, my new aim is to release at least one title per year, and to support this, I will soon be looking to build a review team of trusted readers who enjoy my books and wouldn’t mind leaving reviews on vendors sites in exchange for a free review copy.

At the moment, I am just working on finding the best way to set this up – for inviting members to read and review each title, and for delivering the review copies – and as soon as I have everything in order, my newsletter subscribers will be getting first dibs, but don’t worry, as the offer could be extended elsewhere eventually.

5.

And the final bit of news – because, why not? – is a GIVEAWAY!
Myself, along with TWENTY-THREE other authors have teamed together to give away a GRAND PRIZE OF $150 AMAZON GIFT CARD + A CHOCOLATE HAMPER in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
