GSR Blitz banner

 

 

author photoI grew up in Southeast Missouri; home
of the Throwed Rolls, high cotton, and the St. Louis Cardinals. I have a little
family consisting of son, daughter, son-in-law and a little Pi. Other than my
children (and grandchild), my passion is writing. My current project is The
Three Crowns Series. Sweet Tea is the first book in this seven-novel series
which published October 15, 2013.
Besides reading and writing, I enjoy singing. I love music period. Music is in
our family. Whether it be the bluegrass from the Ozarks that my Grandpa Sutton
use to play on his banjo or fiddle, or the smooth, family harmony in which I am
fortunate enough to sing with my Dad and Brother. But you can give me some
kickin’ AC/DC too! I like it all!I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. Every free moment is dedicated
to my family and my current project, The Three Crowns, a seven-novel paranormal
romance series.

 

It all starts with a Queen and a Plan.

 

The Three Crowns is a New
Adult/Paranormal Romance series. There are seven books to complete the series,
with a novella. This series has your modern day vampires dealing with the Old
World Laws creating a struggle for ultimate power in the Night World.
THE THREE CROWNS SERIES SYNOPSISThe Three Crowns series is about a normal girl whose life is more than what she will allow herself to imagine. It is the journey of her accepting that
everything is not black and white, and our logic of what we understand does not mean something does exist. Throughout the story she is protected, loved,
groomed and pushed to her limits to prepare her for what lies ahead of her. She is tested in all areas of her humanity which will someday bring her to know the person she is destined to be. The human nature of love is a tangled web of emotions for she feels the love of two men who are continually being taken away from her for the sake of their positions in the future as well.

 

Snippet:
I
looked back in the large room. Two major battles were taking place. I knew they
both would be to the death. The warriors were like beautiful gods fighting
demons from hell! Yet, they were all, the same. Their bodies were all
well-defined, and their powers were like nothing I could imagine. They each
fought with the force of what seemed like a hundred men. They weren’t human.
The inhuman strength was not the only sign. Their eyes burned red and silver
through the smoke, like laser beams in the fog of smoke. Their eyes were all I
could see of their faces. And that was enough. That is what defined them. That
is how I knew the good from the bad. And in those few moments that I stood
watching the mêlée, a realization washed over me.
This
battle was over humanity.
This
battle was over light vs. darkness.

 

This
battle was over…me.

With
high hopes of conquering Hollywood, the novel’s main character goes to Los
Angeles to study directing and screenwriting. On the way, she ends up at a
roadside bar that uncannily links the destinies of the main characters, who had
given up everything to follow their dreams. What’s in store for the young
rebels in Los Angeles? Does your dream have another side, one that’s just as
enigmatic and invisible as the far side of the Moon?
Excerpt
“To
be honest, I have no idea what cinema is and why it’s so magnetic…  Also, I don’t know what it’s like to be
called a ‘great’ director. I only just jumped out of the plane and am waiting
for my parachute to open.  In the
meantime, I’m just looking at an illusion of how my life should be.  Maybe I’ll see the light as soon as I hear
the clapperboard and ‘Action!’ But it’ll all be meaningless if people aren’t
inspired… My name is Connie. I came from New York on a long journey in my old
car. Maybe, on the other side of the world, a little girl is going to bed who,
just like I used to, dreams of becoming a filmmaker. And every time, closing
her eyes, she holds a camera in her hands and mentally goes over her movie’s
screenplay… why am I a director? I think I’ll be able to answer that when I
become one. Now I’m just one more student who is just dreaming of becoming a
filmmaker and is still falling asleep, just like that little girl.  The main thing is to not lose faith…”

Isle of Savages

Description Isle of Savages by T. Briar

Eleven souls are shipwrecked on an island teeming with sub-human cannibals. Who will survive to tell the tale?

On July 20, 20� a charter school�s sponsored sail from San Diego to Hawaii hits a reef during a violent storm. Sixteen souls abandon ship. Nine students, along with the hated captain and first mate, wash up on what they believe is a deserted island.

Separated into three groups by circumstance and mutual distrust, treachery and death lurk for all. Over the course of a single day, one student betrays all the others. Another drowns. Two others get ambushed by a great white shark. And, like falling dominoes, the captain, first mate, and six students fall prey to a tribe of bloodthirsty cannibals.

In the face of almost certain death, who will escape the isle of savages to tell the tale?

Isle of Savages Excerpt #2

“What if it’s a trap and you get caught?” Mia’s bottom lip quivered and tears welled in her eyes. “I’m not going to cry for you. Not one single tear.”

“That’s good to know. Instead, just think how happy I am that you and Keri got away. That’s the most important thing to me anyway.” Eric took up the paddle, digging into the ocean to edge them toward the shoreline. As an afterthought, in hopes of lightening the mood, he added, “But just think how foolish we’re all going to feel when we find out it’s not a trap.”

“Whatever,” Mia answered. Keri didn’t say anything.

Eric angled them into the breakers and a lone wave sent them skidding all the way up onto the beach. The moment he stepped out of the raft, he looked back. “Get ready to shove off, in case…”

Keri hopped from the raft with Mia following. Mia grabbed his arm, spinning him around. “Hold on a second.” She stretched up on tiptoes and kissed him on the lips. Just a peck really, no tongue, and no lingering.

“What was that for?” Eric was surprised by the kiss…and pleasantly pleased. He stared directly into her eyes, a smile surfacing.

“The hero always gets a kiss at the end of the movie. I’d hate to know that you died without getting one, you foolish, good deed doer.”

“You wouldn’t have me any other way,” Eric joked. Displays of affection in public settings always made him uncomfortable. Turning to go, he glanced back over his shoulder. “No worries. I’ve got this.”

“Be really careful,” Mia called out after him.

Eric proceeded cautiously up the beach, wishing he’d not lost the knives earlier. Tanya still sat in the exact same spot. She seemed to pay his advance no mind. The closer he got to her, the more he sensed that something was wrong. Maybe with her, maybe because of her. He didn’t really know which it was, only that something was very wrong.

For starters, she had a despondent look on her face as she stared at the ground directly in front of her. She was also naked as the day she’d been born, arms hanging limply at her sides to allow a full view of her heavy breasts. The position of her crossed legs presented the sight of her bare pubis. Nothing about her demure posture or physical appearance seemed natural. He couldn’t help remembering that this girl had once been the most flirtatious girl on the cruise.

At a distance of fifteen feet, he called out, “Tanya, look at me.”

She didn’t look up or acknowledge him in any way.

“Tanya! Look at me and tell me what happened to you. Why are you sitting there naked? What happened to your clothes? Is Gregory and the captain still alive? Start talking, or I’m going back to the raft and leaving you here.”

At this, Tanya looked straight at Eric, a glimmer of recognition dawning. She blinked and tears trickled down her cheeks. She extended arms toward him, opening and closing her fingers like a child signaling they wanted to be picked up.

Eric took another cautious step forward as a chill crept up his spine to raise the short hairs on the back of his neck. He immediately stopped in his tracks, scanning the jungle for signs of danger. He didn’t see any, but couldn’t make his feet take another step forward. Despite his former argument in favor of doing this, he wished he’d stayed in the raft with Mia and Keri and risked everything in open water. But here he stood now, with no other alternative than to see it through.

“Come to me, Tanya,” he instructed. “Stand up and come to me.”

“I can’t.” She sniffled. “Help me, Eric. Please don’t leave me here to die.”

Stifling his fear, he forced stubborn feet to move forward in the soft sand. The moment he reached down for her hands, she lunged forward, wrapping both arms around his legs.

“I’m sorry, Eric!” Tanya muttered as she toppled him over onto his back. “I’m so sorry. Please forgive me.”

Eric, stunned by the sudden attack, struggled to get away, but Tanya held his legs in an iron grip. To further thwart his efforts, a group of what looked to be primitive pygmies swarmed out of the jungle to seize his arms and legs. Though small, they were immensely strong, easily flipping him over onto his stomach and pinning his arms behind his back.

“Nooooo!” Mia’s tortured voice wailed.

A view of the beach stretched out before him. He saw Mia running toward him; Keri darting forward to quickly tackle her to the sand; Mia outstretching her hands as Keri forcibly dragged her back to the raft and tossed her inside; Mia never taking her eyes off him as Keri pulled the raft into the ocean.

He never stopped looking at Mia. Not even when the pygmies snatched his head back by the hair to nick his neck with a razor-sharp, volcanic glass knife.

The last thing he knew before losing consciousness was all-encompassing pain emanating from the wound on his neck, accompanied by uncontrollable convulsions, and the dual images of Mia and Keri escaping to sea.

Praise Isle of Savages by T. Briar

�Freaking Amazing! This books was such a wild ride from page one. So many twists and turns that you just can’t figure out what the hell is going to happen next! It was so hard to put down and very, very well written.� I am very picky with the books I read, I know I say that a lot, but it’s true. This book met every single one of my expectations and then some.

With the characters, you either really felt for them, or you held seething hatred for them. It was like the main characters couldn’t seem to catch a break and the villains of the story kept getting a leg up. It was driving me crazy! I was found yelling at my kindle, cursing, clenching my fists, all because this story was so easy to get into! In fact, it was hard NOT to!

This is not a happy story, by any means. There is so much death and destruction and it’s written in great detail. So if you get wigged out easily, this might not be the book for you. Me, I love this kind of stuff. The blood, the gore, the chaos, this book had it all! Definitely 5 out of 5 stars for me!�- Amanda, Rabid Readers Book Blog

About T. Briar

Briar spent his formative years in the treacherous worlds of The Savage Sword of Conan, The Warlord, and Jonah Hex comics. So he�s been fascinated with action adventure stories for most of his life. From there, he eventually discovered Jack London, Louis L�amour and Jack Higgins. These days he�s devouring thriller novels by James Rollins, Clive Cussler and a host of other adventure writers.

This led him to start writing at an early age and he didn�t stop until he saw his name in print. Although, it wasn�t in the thriller genre. Not at first. But it was always a given that he�d eventually write and publish a thriller. It just took him a few extra years to get around to it.

He lives in South Georgia with his wonderful wife of 25 years.

“Ali has done it once again! This book is absolutely addictive! Once I started it I couldn’t put it down!” – Country Girl Book Blog

Water. The place where I feel at peace.
Free from the expectations. Away from the judgement. Weightless from the obligations.

When I slip under the cool surface, I’m no longer sinking from the demands of family, school and the choices that I must make. Chase my dream of the Olympics or follow the expected career path? What will it be?

I’m not usually one to rock the boat – that’s my twin sister’s role. I find myself in uncharted territory when I meet Jett Decker on my twenty-first birthday. It’s not like me to get swept off my feet, but when I do, it creates waves with those closest to us.

Chemistry ignites, jealousy spikes and tension builds the more we’re together. Sometimes in real life the lines between what is wanted and what must be done get blurred. Not everything is crystal clear, like the line below.

“Kick is a book that has soared above all other books for me this year. It is the epitome of coming of age in the modern world. The romance is all-consuming and just down right beautiful.” – Cassie, Garden of REden Book Blog

Buzzing anticipation. Floating weightlessness. Adrenaline rush. All the best feelings wrapped into an emotional high that never gets old.

I think I might be addicted to falling in love.

When rising rock star Jack Kingston comes to play on our college campus, I think he’ll be just another fix. Instead, he flips everything around and makes me question who I am, what I want, and why I do what I do. After he leaves, everything changes.

Pushing myself in the pool, struggling to keep up with my twin sister, it’s what keeps me from losing myself entirely. Swimming isn’t my passion. It’s my source of stability. When I find the courage to finally start pushing my boundaries, I discover success in ways I never imagined, both in and out of the water.

When Jack resurfaces, I’m forced to decide between facing my fears or letting them spiral out of control as my past catches up with me… threatening to pull me back under. It’s time to sink or swim.

This is the second book in the Spark Sisters series but can be read as a standalone novel.
