Check out Seven Threads.

And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

But first, enjoy this interview with Author Jason Atkinson.

Q: There are plenty of fiction books out there, what makes yours so special?

A: I realize that in this great big world that there are those that read a lot, and those that only read small portions. This book stands apart because it fits both audiences. My book of short stories is split into parts. Each story has parts that make up the entire story. If a reader wishes to read an entire story at once, they can. If another reader wants to digest smaller sections without getting lost – they can! It’s great.

Plus, my stories are just fun to read and have twists and turns all their own. Each story is unique so you are bound to find a few favorites to read over and over again.


Q: What made you choose these stories to write about?

A: Honestly, I didn’t have a plan going into this. It was all about what hit me at that moment. The only thing I knew for sure was to make sure I was true to myself in the process and made sure I would have stories that reflected possible life circumstances with the opportunity for human kind to ring through in the way it should be remembered – good, kind hearted souls that want to see empathy, not cruelty win.


Q: Do you snack while writing?

A: Typically I do not. I try to stay zoned in as much as possible, although I do love my snacks and often find myself grazing as soon as I am done with a writing session!


Q: Have you ever started writing and then just decided to throw it away?

A: Yes and no. I have begun stories and part way through realized that my heart isn’t in it, so I stop. I don’t throw it away though as I may find myself needing it again one day. But as mentioned, I certainly have found myself second guessing and just moving away from a story. If I have to force it work, then it’s probably not coming from me. I want pure, honest stories.


Q: Do you have a profession besides writing?

A: I do, amazingly publishing books isn’t a get rich quick type of deal! I actually have a career in Operations with a company based out of California, even though I am located in Iowa. I get to work from home and sometimes travel to work with different clients, and because of that I can soak in the new surroundings that I encounter and apply them to my imagination when writing stories for people like you.

My Teaser for this week is from

Black Beauty

Everleaf #0.5

by Constance Burris




Genre: Horror / Dark Fantasy / Series

 My teaser from7 % in the eBook.

“I’m going crazy,” she thought. This time she did laugh, and the snakes, which were the same rusty brown color as her dreads, returned her smile.

I had no idea what this book was about. I just couldn’t resist that title and cover. It takes right off and gets dark fast. Having fun!


Read on if you want to know more.


At Vista Apartment Complex, life drastically changes for a few of its residents when they decide to do business with Crazy Jade—the supposed voodoo witch that can grant your wish, for a price.

Shemeya wants the confidence to stand up against the girls bullying her at school, but she soon has to choose between keeping her dreadlocs or living a normal life. After catching her boyfriend cheating, Latreece just wants to have the same curves as all the other girls. Ashley will do whatever she can to have “White Girl Flow”, but takes her pursuit too far when she steals from Crazy Jade.

Everyone who comes into contact with Crazy Jade soon learns the true price of her magic—and how horribly wrong it can go.

BLACK BEAUTY takes the reader on a journey through the point of view of five residents of Vista Apartment Complex, and how each of their horrors crash together in ways they could never have expected.
