Crossroads Multi-genre Anthology Blog Hop


Thank you for joining the Crossroads Multi-genre Anthology Blog Hop. At each stop you'll learn a little about the books that's a part of the set and enter a few giveaways too. Have fun. Enjoy the day. Here's a bit about my contribution.

Wild Child is an urban fantasy featured in the Crossroads Anthology

The road you take cannot be undone.

Meet Kasha

 Kasha never quite fit in. So she left home long ago to pursue her career in art. Hell, she ran as fast as she could away from her minister father and his judgmental ways. Yet, she loved her parents, so when the dreams surrounding a church filled with fire and blood kept repeating itself, it was all she could paint. She had to warn them. Only to arrive too late to save them.  Now she found herself running once again, only this time away from a nightmare.

In her mad flight, she took a turn off the highway. Soon realizing she might have run toward something even worse. This time she couldn’t run, she couldn’t lie to herself anymore. She was more than an artist. She had to learn to fully embrace and unleash her powers within. She had to know who and what she truly was and learn to stand her ground.


The long fingers of the flames quickly covered the frames of the houses clustered so closely together. Fissures opened up from the ground, spitting fire from the bowels of the earth, setting everything ablaze. What the fire didn’t destroy the earthquakes rocking the area finished the rest.
The news flashed footage like that over and over again, but Kasha had seen those same images long before the live broadcast. She hated herself for not listening to the dreams for the last few days before it happened. She’d fucking known.
At least, she’d tried to warn her parents the morning it started, to get out of the area, especially her minister father. Not like that hadn’t been a difficult conversation. The daughter who’d run from home, whom he hadn’t spoken to in eight years. The first thing out of her mouth, “I…I’ve had a vision of fire. And you and Mom die.”

The second book I have in the Crossroads Anthology I co-wrote with Kassanna as Ursula Sinclair. We'd like to introduce you to Defiant. A contemporary new adult romance fraught with violence and intrigue.

Stay out of my way. Not a threat. A promise.

In my insulated world, determination, wealth…happiness isn’t limited by the color of your skin but the size of your bank account. I was raised with the mindset that there is nothing in this world I can’t have. Don’t get me wrong—I have problems, family issues, but nothing that can’t be resolved. A chance encounter opened my eyes and initiated a tempest around me. I am Harper Hodges and he is the eye of the storm.

If you don’t stand with me you stand against me. I suffer no one but my own kind, white pure blood Anglo-Saxon Americans. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against other races, their inferiority is not my problem. Until I met her. She opened my eyes and I no longer see the world in black and white. I am Dachs Neumann and to keep her safe I will strike down even those closest to me.
Be careful what you wish for.

SOUL COLLECTORS: Step into The Worlds Created by the Authors of #WIngsoftheWicked ~ Read an Excerpt from Soul Collectors by LaVerne Thompson @lavernethompson #99cBoxedSet #Giveaway #LimitedEdition #WickedlyDangerous #SinfullySeductive #WIngsoftheWicked #ReadanExcerpt #99cBoxedSet #Giveaway #LimitedEdition #WickedlyDangerous #SinfullySeductive

Soul Collectors

Betwixt heaven and hell a world exists called earth. Otherwise known as the battlefield for souls. 

Angelique is an Angel Soul Collector.
She collects the souls of those who died in fear, anger and pain. She is there to bear witness to the suffering, give comfort and hope and determine if they are worthy of heaven.
Some choose not to go with her and instead thirst for revenge; those refuse to give up their earthly ties and she leaves them to their fates. Some find satisfaction and will be given another chance to cross over, but most doom themselves to wander the earthly realm for an eternity. The ones who surrender to her, to the light, she opens the doorway and escorts them to a better life.
But then there are the others.

Nathanial is a Demon Soul Collector. He collects souls for his master from those who died in fear, anger and pain. Those who thirst for revenge he encourages to remain on earth and cause havoc. Others that have their names already written in his little red book he opens the gateway and shoves them straight into hell. For him it’s a job. He was born of a human father and demon mother and raised in hell to become a collector.
They are enemies. But once they were something else.


    He didn’t know what he’d looked like to the mortal men but his rage burnt bright. He could see a red hue before him. The soldiers straightened, their mouths opened in shock and their eyes held a hint of fear, at the appearance of this seemingly young boy. One who radiated fire.

   The men soon learned he was anything but human. No need to hide what he was any longer. He placed Angelique on the ground and drew the sword from the sheath he carried between the obsidian colored wings at his back. No need to hide at all. His hands glowed bright orange, the pain almost more than he could bear. Blood seeped from his palms, he used the power in his blood as he used his blade to channel powers born of hell. Red flame raced down the blade and shot hellfire, coursing unerringly toward the beating hearts of the men. Spreading the stench of burning flesh as they fell, leaving nothing but a pile of ash.
