Stephanie Meyer to continue "Twilight" with new four-book series? (SPOILERS)

Guys, I came across this tonight and just HAD to share it with everyone.

Word has just dropped that Stephanie Meyer, the author of the "Twilight" series, will announce soon that she plans to release four more books in the "Twilight" series over the next four years.

The first book, "Midnight Sun", is the completed work that was so infamously leaked in 2008, in which the original events from the first book are retold through the eyes of Edward Cullen, the vampiric soulmate of Bella Swan. (Source).
"Writing chapter one, "First Sight," from Edward's point of view was an exciting experience; I actually had my pulse racing as I typed. When I finished, I was truly pleased with my creation. Here was the other side of the story that no one knew. Here was the truth of what Edward had been through."

The next book, previously unannounced, will be titled "White Nights", and will pick up the story of the Cullen's and Jacob as his love with Renesmee deepens. Follow along as Jacob fights back his urges in her presence, as they share the same longing glances that Edward and Bella enjoyed during their courtship.

A misunderstanding over Jacob's relationship with Renesmee forces them to leave drizzly Forks behind and travel North to Edward's Alaskan hideout, where the sun  only briefly descends beneath the surface of the horizon, hidden from sight much in the same way as Jacob and Renesmee's romance must remain hidden from a livid Charlie Swan, who has threatened Jacobs life.

The next installment, "Harvest Moon", chronicles the aftermath of Charlie Swans heart attack and death. The stress over Jacob, Renesmee, as well as the remainder of the Cullen clan is believed to play a part in his early demise. His fury is so great that his spirit is not allowed to rest, and he returns as a spirit to haunt his family. The Cullens must adjust for their omnipresent kin, and also deal with a shadowy reaper that has been sent to "harvest" Charlie for his introduction to heaven.

Finally, the conclusion that all of Meyers fans have awaited patiently for a decade, "Equinox" will tell of the mysterious destiny of Jacob and Renesmee's love child, Billward. The child grows even faster, and is even stronger than Renesmee was. Renesmee dies during childbirth, and in his greif, Jacob begins to wonder if his new progeny may have been born to serve a darker purpose.

Over time, Billward grows to resent his werewolf father, and during a chance encounter with a Volturi spy, is informed that the Volturi believe that he may be the "Beast" whose birth was prophesied to "level the playing field" with the humans and usher in an age where werewolves, vampires, and the like take their rightful places at the top of the chain of command of the human race.

Jacob and Edward must fight together to destroy their own and restore equilibrium, the balance that existed prior to the birth of Billward. They manage to destroy Billward, and fight off the Volturi, though Edward is killed in the fight.

After a year of mourning, Bella and Jacob discover that their love is the one constant through it all, and are married in a Spring Ceremony.

And then.......

Everyone discovers that today is April 1st, and you have all been had! APRIL FOOLS! Thanks for reading along. Now pass it on, and prank someone else!

~ Meet bad boy Micah Dominus ~

Road to Hell Series Character Interview
~ Meet bad boy Micah Dominus ~
By Gracen Miller

Judge: Today at Judge Not By the Covers, I have sexy bad boy Micah Dominus from the Road to Hell series with me. He was introduced in the prequel, Madison’s Life Lessons, and in book one, Pandora’s Box. His newest edition in the Road to Hell saga, Hell’s Phoenix, was released on February 17th! Thank you for joining me today, Micah.

Micah: Thanks for inviting me.

Judge: For those who haven’t read Pandora’s Box, book one in the Road to Hell series, tell us something about yourself. Something we can only discover between the pages.

Micah: Can’t give away too many of my secrets or readers will miss all the surprises. *wicked grin* But I’m of the archangel variety.

Judge: *smiles and lowers voice to a sultry sound* That makes you a bad boy angel, then?

Micah: *chuckles* Technically speaking, yes. I don’t call myself an angel any more. I prefer to disassociate from heavenly society. Father and I aren’t exactly on speaking terms. *winks*

Judge: Some readers would say you’ve been cruel to your wife, Madison. Would you say your actions are justified?

Micah: *nods* Yes. Everything I’ve done has been for her advantage.

Judge: Mmhm…how can you justify violence?

Micah: How can I not when it’s for her benefit? In my world, there is violence and then there is violence. I never tortured her, but only frightened her. She was never in any real danger, even though she perceived differently. All prophecies indicated aggression was necessary to push her to claim her destiny. I’d be shirking my duty as her husband if I ignored the divination. And Madison is fated to be too great to remain a weak mortal.

Judge: So would you say your actions toward her are misunderstood?

Micah: I think I’m misjudged by human standards. I am thankfully not human. I’ve existed longer than the human race has lived. I’ve witnessed the rise and fall of civilizations. I do not process the world as a mortal does because my timeframe is not limited as yours is. What is harsh through human eyes is very mild by even heavenly standards. Father destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire, turned Lot’s wife to salt just for a peek of that destruction, allowed Job—a devoted subject—to suffer to prove himself loyal to God, and all of that after He killed many with the flood. *shakes head* Yet, you would judge my actions, call them appalling, when Father has proven time and again the cruelty He can inflict. All of that from a supposedly loving creator. *scoffs* Unbelievable hypocrisy. What did Father’s actions acquire? I’ll tell you. Humans so frightened they worship him out of fear. Where’s the freewill in that? *inhales deeply* My wife lives. She is stronger now than she has ever been, all thanks to my tactics. *swipes his fingers through his chin-length hair* Torture is my specialty; I sip it as you might fine wine, savoring and relishing the pain I inflict…because it spawns a new and better creation. Something Father would disapprove of. *intense stare, refusing to allow Judge to look away* If I’d wanted Madison tortured, she wouldn’t have survived my initial assault. No human could. I scared the hell out of her, yes. Not once did I enjoy it. What human hasn’t on occasion used fear to engender compliance among those they love? If you mortals wish to paint me a monster, then feel free. I’ve been called worse. By my Father, no less. I do what I do so that in another thousand years, Madison and I will still be together, while all of you will be cold and long dead in your graves. When mortality isn’t terrifying you with your morally pretentious righteousness, then we’ll have a genuine debate on my actions, because until that time, none of you can relate to my logic.

Judge: Right…*shifts in her chair* It sounds as if our *finger quote* misjudgment *end finger quote* of you bothers you.

Micah: *smirks* I really don’t care what you mortals think. All that concerns me is the safety of Madison and Amos.

Judge: How do your actions differ from God’s when you’re attempting to frighten her into submission? How is that freewill?

Micah: I will not punish Madison if she chooses a different purpose from mine.

Judge: You will not like it.

Micah: Not even a little.

Judge: You mentioned that God forces worship through fear…haven’t your actions created fear in Madison?

Micah: *snorts* Trust me, she does not fear me. It is I who lives in fear of her discovering how much she means to me how, much she could manipulate me. *tenseness leaves his shoulders and his face softens* Madison means everything to me. As corny as it sounds, she is my world. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for her.

Judge: You love your wife?

Micah: Very much.

Judge: There would be some—Madison included—that don’t believe you truly love her, but think you are manipulating her for your own gain. What would you forfeit for her to prove your love?

Micah: That would be a private matter for Madison and me to discuss.

Judge: Would you ever consider giving up your kingdom for her?

Micah: *a tiny flinch of surprise* Again that would be a private matter between Madison and me.

Judge: It’s easy to say “I love you”. Actions speak louder than words. Witnessing your attacks toward her in the Road to Hell series, I would say you’re love for her isn’t demonstrated as much as you’d like. If you could do one thing to show your love to Madison, how would you go about it?

Micah: Persistent little mortal, aren’t you? *leans forward in his chair, eyes glowing* How about we alter this line of questioning and move along before I’m forced to move you along…*flashes a dark grin as he chucks her chin*

Judge: *swallows and jerks away from Micah* Do—ah…*peers at notes* How will you…ah…react if Madison chooses Phoenix over you?

Micah: *relaxes into his chair and stretches his legs out in front of him* I’m convinced she won’t. But what if she does? I can see that question burning in your eyes. *tsks at her* I’ll play along. If she does, what is sixty years waiting for him to die when I have eternity on my side? It’s a blink in time. I would wait for her to discover herself, because her attraction to me is too great for her to deny me for long. She will eventually be mine once again.

Judge: If you could tell Madison anything, what would it be?

Micah: Embrace what you are, not for me, but for you and for Amos, because nothing can stop the ride you’re on.

Judge: Will you tell folks who Amos is, please?

Micah: The greatest kid ever, who just happens to be my son with Madison. He’s got a lot of natural talent and charm, just like his Daddy. *winks*

Judge: Well, that looks like all the time we have today. Micah, thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us.

Micah: *inclines his head*

Judge: Is there anything you’d like to say to my readers?

Micah: Remember there are always two sides to a story. One version is not always the truth.

Thanks for having Micah with you today, Judge!


Where you can stalk me—not really!—but I would love to meet and interact with you:

Pandora’s Box Blurb (book 1):

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

Hell’s Phoenix Blurb (book 2):

Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…

Tianna: Hey guys!! We had the pleasure of interviewing Jamie Magee, Author of the Insight series and the Indie Author being spotlighted on the My Home Away From Home bookpage!!!! Read on to learn more about this amazing author and leave a comment to be entered in a special giveaway (to be posted later!)

1)      Which character do you most closely relate with??
I would have to say a part of every character has a little bit of me in them, but I tend to relate to Willow the most. I feel her more intently simply because the story is told from her perspective, and the fact that she was the first character I ever heard in my thoughts!

2)      Where were you or when did the idea for INSIGHT first hit you??
If I remember correctly I was wrapping Christmas presents. I have always let my mind drift into a daydream when I’m doing tasks that do not involve much thought. Willow’s daydream came to mind without any effort on my own. What I saw, the scene, it carried so much emotion that I stopped what I was doing and just stared forward as I watched Willow’s world come to life around me.

3)      How many books are you planning to write in this series??
This is a hard question. At first I thought there would be ten, but now I have a new series that will weave into this one, and I know there will be more that will weave into this story as well. There is no way for me to even guess how many books will branch off this one love story, but I know one thing – I can’t wait to write them!

4)      Which one of your characters would you consider doing a spin off series with?
Most of the main characters in Insight. Drake, Willow, and Landen have already appeared in my new series. When I finished Insight five I realized that Dane and Clarissa will find their way into an entirely new series.
If you think about it in life we all weave together in some way. How many times have you said “it’s a small world”? With that idea in mind and the fact that Willow and Landen have had lives that have stretched across four million years, there is no telling how many people, legends, or myths that they have created or influenced. Every character is very diverse and has a different perspective on this darkness they are fighting. The possibilities are endless!

5)      When you envision a story, which part comes to you first? Beginning, middle, end?
Every story is different. With Insight I actually saw the end of Embody when I began to write. So, I wrote Insight from beginning to end trying to reach that point, when it did not come I began with that scene when writing Embody, and wrote that book backwards. With Image the story came to life in scenes, once the scenes were complete I had to cut and paste and then link the scenes – oddly this created a very fast paced story. With my new series – they have all been written from beginning to end, but these books are so fast paced that I tend to write them within three weeks, and they are not small, all of them rank around 100,000 words. The characters are the ones that state the order, and how fast my novels come to life.

6)      What inspired you to become an author?
To this day I have hard time calling myself an author. I feel more like a daydreamer who is sharing her imagination with good friends. When I decided to write all I was doing was capturing the details of my daydreams for others to read.

7)      What do you need when you write?? I.E. Certain music… certain foods…
I love music – and have to have it, the louder the better! I am also addicted to Red Bull, so that beverage is usually close by!

8)      What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
To write, not to worry if anyone will love or hate it, just let your story speak to you and follow the path before you.

9)      Who are some of your favorite authors/ What are your favorite books to read?
I’m a bit of a geek. I love nonfiction, mainly philosophy. My nook is filled with books and essays by Joseph Campbell, Freud, and Carl Jung. I love to analyze dreams so I follow authors like Lauri Loewenberg – I also have countless books on cities like New Orleans and Salem. If there is a legend or theory about anything I want to know about it!

10)  A random fact about yourself?
I tend to dream about life changing events before they happen, sometimes years before they happen.

11)  The way you describe your different dimensions are so vivid and imaginative, where did the inspiration come from?
The stories come to life around me. I really can’t pin point a visual aid or place I have visited that brought any of the worlds in my series to life – I’m just lucky to have characters that are very vivid.

12)  Are there any personal aspects of your life that are included in the books?? Like someones house or car?? Or the way someone looks or talks??
If there is someone in my life that carries a particular sun sign I watch the way they react to situations in their life and try to work that in. I have two examples. My husband is a Pisces. People with these sun signs tend to have a dual personality ( like the sign) meaning the man I know at home is completely different than the man he is in his career. Landen is the one I know – Drake is the one the others know him by.
The main male charter in my new series ‘See’ is a Taurus. After the first read by my beta reads I was told they expected him to be angrier if he was a Taurus ( I’m a lucky girl – my betas love astrology as much as I do!). When I wrote him I focused on the voice that sign has – how hypnotic it is. Once I had this feedback I found the first male Taurus I could in my life and basically interviewed him in a roundabout way. I put forth scenarios to him – ones that happened in my first draft, and guess what the beta readers were right – I could see the anger in my Taurus friends eyes as he imagined the things in the books happing to him. You could see the control he tried to have, how his eyes would reflect that emotion even though his words and actions were calm.
I think all writers are people watchers. I pull from every area in my life, no doubt.

13)   What’s your favorite part about being a writer?
The rush of the story, knowing that I am the first one to step into this world. I’m always eager to share my work, but I adore those alone moments I have with my story.

14)  Who is your favorite character in this series?
Like would be like choosing a favorite child – impossible. They all have their moments that steal my thoughts away!

15)   If Insight were to be made into a movie, Who would play Drake?
That is a question I would love to ask my fans. I have not come across ‘the one’ yet!

Until Next Time: The Angel Chronicles by Amy Lignor

Until Next Time: The Angel Chronicles, Book 1 Summary

How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?

Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.

When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.

From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.
