Young Adult Paranormal/Supernatural
By E.W. Skinner
Coming – November, 2015
Sequel to: ST. BLAIR: CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT
Twenty-four hours earlier the world was a pristine, productive, demon-free society and Sybille Malone an unknown Region One Fabric Counsel designer.
Global Good’s curator and guardian of banished relics warehoused in the Arctic Region, Eston Cote, needs to act fast. As Global Good’s North Quad leader, he must prepare his colleagues in the other three Quadrants of the world for something they have never known… warfare.
Celestial warfare. A fight for souls.
Eston has discovered Sybille’s connection to a chain of supernatural events that not only caused planetary earthquakes, but unleashed the Holy Warrior St. Michael the Archangel and his enemies. Michael’s sole mission is to defend Sybille’s calling, slaying the hounds of hell who threaten to possess the citizens of her world.
Divinely foreseen and journaled by 21st century teenager St. Blair, Sybille’s only hope of reining in the evil she unleashed on September 14, 2202, is to follow the directives of Blair and the saints before the demonic possessions outnumber the innocents.
Emily had a goal when she was 15, she would have a daughter named Marquel and write a novel titled “Marquel.” She accomplished both and more.
Emily was a protege of the late master of the pulps or paperback originals, Harry Whittington. Emily interviewed Whittington during her days as a feature writer for the Clearwater Sun daily newspaper and its weekly division. They became friends and he taught her how to plot and gave her approval of the original outline and sample chapter for “Marquel” shortly before he died in 1989.
After Whittington passed away, Emily challenged herself to write as her mentor did and wrote a chapter a day and finished the novel “Marquel” in 52 days. For more details on the novel’s history read: http://www.thefilmmom.blogspot.com/2012/10/why-book-trailer-now.html
Fast forward, a second daughter, Blair is born and Emily and husband Tom focus on raising their family. Both daughters are now grown and work in Hollywood. So this might be an example of art imitating life or the reverse?
A devoted Catholic, Emily is rekindling her love for writing and has just completed the movie script for “Marquel” and a young adult paranormal appropriately named after her youngest child, “St. Blair: Children of the Night.”
When Emily isn’t working as a marketing consultant or writing, she enjoys antiquing/thrifting and producing short films. Emily is the proud Executive Producer of Blair Skinner’s film “Relative Eternity,” a 2012 LA Shorts Film Festival selection, Sunscreen Film Festival selection and Short Film Corner Festival de Cannes selection. Written, directed and edited by Blair Skinner, “Relative Eternity” is on snagfilms.com for your viewing pleasure.

The Hearts of Dragons, book two in the Dragoon Saga, is available NOW. To celebrate, I’m going to be spotlighting both books that kick off this epic new trilogy today!
From fantasy author Josh VanBrakle comes an epic new trilogy of friendship, betrayal, and explosive magic. Lefthanded teenager Iren Saitosan must uncover a forgotten history, confront monsters inspired by Japanese mythology, and master a serpentine dragon imprisoned inside a katana to stop a revenge one thousand years in the making.
Lodian history declares lefthanded people chaotic, dangerous, and devil-spawned, but Iren, the kingdom’s only known Left, thinks that’s an exaggeration. Sure, he loves pranking the residents of Haldessa Castle, but that’s harmless fun to get a little attention.
When one of his stunts nearly kills Lodia’s charismatic heir to the throne, Amroth Angustion, however, Iren confronts a no-win choice. To avoid execution, he must join a covert team and assassinate a bandit lord. The mission is suicidal, and Iren’s chances aren’t helped when he learns that his new katana imprisons a dragon’s spirit, one with a magic so powerful it can sink continents and transform Iren into a raging beast.
Adding to Iren’s problems, someone on the assassination team is plotting treason. When a former ally launches a blood-soaked plan to avenge the Lefts, Iren finds himself trapped between competing loyalties, and the fates of two nations will depend on his choice.
Seven months ago nineteen-year-old Iren Saitosan saved the continent of Raa, but victory had its price: his Dragoon transformation left him unable to use magic. In a culture that relies on spells just to open doors, the impairment has crippled him. Unwilling to live dependent on his friend Minawë, Iren departs in search of a cure.
Meanwhile, Minawë faces a greater loss. She had to watch her mother’s murder, and she has yet to overcome her grief.
She will have to find the strength to move on, though, because a ruthless pair is hunting Iren. They know about the Dragoon, and they’ll stop at nothing to gain its power. If they succeed, they’ll plunge Raa into its most devastating war in a thousand years. Only Minawë can rescue Iren before that happens. But even if she finds him in time, a secret from the past may turn him against her.
Josh VanBrakle is the author of the perfectly logical combination – to him, anyway – of epic fantasy novels and environmental non-fiction.
Born in Pennsylvania, Josh grew up in Hershey, Chocolatetown USA. He now lives in the rural Catskill Mountains of upstate New York with his wife and two ill-behaved cats.
Josh grew up with a passion for both reading and the outdoors. His parents claim he learned to read using dinosaur books, because all the dinosaur names had phonetic spellings after them. From an early age he was telling and writing stories.
While the ideas for his first novel originated in high school, Josh set them aside to pursue a career in environmental protection. He might never have gone back to writing had it not been for a serendipity moment. He saw a newspaper article advertising workshops hosted by Shannon Delany, author of the 13 to Life series and the Weather Witch series. Thanks to those workshops, two years of hard work, and the incredible support of his family and coworkers, Josh’s debut novel, The Wings of Dragons, was born.
Although Josh is now writing more than ever, he continues to work a day job at a local environmental nonprofit promoting rural land conservation. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, kayaking, nature photography, and generally being outdoors wherever and whenever possible.
One lucky winner will receive a signed paperback of both The Wings of Dragons AND The Hearts of Dragons! Enter below

Eight years ago, Cooper was dating the hottest and most desired girl in Ash Falls and on his way to take over his father’s hotel empire –– the thing was, it wasn’t the life he wanted. The only way he could escape the life his parents had planned for him, was to give up the money and power that came with being a Chamberlin. And, that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the Summer, he was going to leave it all behind, start a new life, on his own terms and without the influence that came with being a Chamberlin.
That was, before he met Emma.
Following her parents’ divorce, Emma is the rock for her alcoholic mother, and her younger sister. She appears resilient, and tenacious, but inside she’s falling apart. The only thing that keeps her going is her love for writing poetry, and that when she finally graduates High School, she’ll be able to start living the life she has always dreamed of.
Until she meets Cooper.
It was supposed to be a Summer fling. She had dreams of her own. Dreams that didn’t include him or his social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one Summer, Emma became Cooper’s entire world. And he, a reminder that love doesn’t have to come with warning signs.
Until one frightful night, when both of their lives, and the lives of the residents of Ash Falls, were turned upside down. Emma is left with one choice, run from the life she thought she didn’t want, and the guy who stole her heart.
But, when she returns six years she is faced with a devastating truth that shakes the very foundation that her life was built upon. Another has already claimed the man she loves.
Will true love prove the test of time?
Will cooper find his way without losing the things and people that matter to him the most?
Can Emma recover from life’s lessons?
Could Emma and Cooper’s love survive when those closest to them keep tearing them apart?
Stay Tuned for “Once Upon A Forever”.
I’m Aviva Scott.
First, I’d like to say thank you for snooping, it proves I’m not the only one obsessed with what other people have accomplished in their lives.
I’m a New York Bitch (shocker!) who loves to write about all the crap relationships, let-downs, and unbelievable experiences I’ve had, and share them with the world, in an open diary, it-wasnt-me sort of way.
Prior to determining that writing tantalizing stories was my true passion, I tried my hands at being a flight attendant, EMT, cupcake baker, cocktail waitress, and even a counter girl at a makeup counter in a very prestigious Manhattan fashion house, and hated every single minute of it. Except for the cupcakes, they were great.
Currently, I’m working tirelessly on finishing the High Heels Series, eating copious amounts of dark chocolate cupcakes, while procrastinating on Facebook and Twitter.
