Unlimited Blitz Tour - Grinelda Markowitz

book cover 01 The Moon-kissed Chi
Grinelda Markowitz
Erotic Sci-Fi Tour 
Aug 16 - Sept 17



Grinelda Markowitz writes erotic fiction across multiple genres. She resides in a galaxy far, far away with a trusty pen, a never-ending supply of paper and a fertile imagination. The Moon-Kissed Chi, her first e-published book in the genre of erotic fiction, is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

For a bit of recreation she enjoys clay work and attending symphony. She meets up with friends when able to sync with their schedules and she maintain a fairly active virtual life. Eating out is a passion for her. She’s always glad to find a new restaurant which warrants a return visit.

Cliché as it is, she used to work at a bookstore part time. Finally, she also maintains a full-time bread-and-butter job as well. Embarking on a serious approach to writing rather than the hit-and-miss efforts of previous years has provided a welcome focal point in her daily existence. 

In the city of Kalaydan, Arrinay and Bezhyanya, the senior members of the ruling family, are faced with the early maturation of their daughter, Gayadnae. She must start the training. It’s Kalaydan law. Their daughter has other ideas. After concocting a plan to avoid responsibility and almost succeeding in carrying it out, Gayadnae’s life takes an unexpected turn.

Grayt, the ever-present serving woman to Arrinay, fills many roles and has her fingers in a number of pies. There’s definitely more to her than is apparent on the surface. Along with coordinating activities in the Main House, keeping the young mistress in line, and talking to horses, Grayt has a more secret agenda with a graver responsibilities.

A hint of trouble on the horizon and other darker activities weave their way through the backdrop of this delightful tale which takes place in the city of Kalaydan.

Danielle Lee Zwissler – Mini Book Review Tour

book cover 02 Her Last Chance
By Danielle Lee Zwissler
Romantic Comedy Tour
May 13 - 18


Danielle Lee Zwissler is an Ohio author. She is a big fan of romance as well as fantasy. She likes her characters to have larger than life personalities, a fair amount of money, and if possible, red hair!

The first book that she had published was "Her Last Chance" and immediately after was the second book of the Daniels Dynasty,"The Art of Seduction". Soon after, Books-to-go-Now! put out an erotic title of hers "The Trio of Sin".

Now, Danielle is currently working with four different publishers as well as a group of writers called "The Iron Writer Challenge" a challenge in which 5 writers compete against one another with stories that they've written of only 500 words! Thus far, Danielle has won 8 out of the 11 challenges that she has taken.

Currently her list of novels includes several erotica, written under the pen name Heather Lane, western romance, romantic comedies, flash fiction, and soon to be released a young adult fantasy series!

In Her Last Chance, Katherine Daniels, advice columnist for High Fashion Magazine, had the life she always wanted in New York: a good job, a city apartment, and a secret crush. On a trip back home to Connecticut to care for her father, one man turned her whole world upside down: Dr. Warren Vance. After being humiliated in NY and pulled into her father's match-making antics, Kat had to rethink her life. What she didn't know was that this wasn't just a second chance, it was her last...

The Mistress of Bjerkebæk

I’m an avid reader, but have a narrow genre preference when reading. Sometimes I stray into other areas of interest and am rarely disappointed. One such excursion was the series Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset. I still reflect on the books and on the life of the author, also a Nobel Prize laureate.  Read More

The Piano Guys

The word ‘fusion’ is something I’m familiar with when speaking of the arts. Belly dance is the platform with which I associate fusion. That’s not the only artistic arena in which fusion is possible, and I’m not thinking of cold fusion. The Piano Guys (TPG), with their exquisite blend of classical and contemporary music, is who I have in mind. ... Read More

Cheek for Cheek and So On

The most fun endeavors, many times, come to be as the result of a lark. My first book, under one of my pseudonyms, was written because I was feeling rather snarky and just knew I could. Much the same with Novel in a Day (NIAD). NIAD was born “tongue in cheek.” I’m not sure just how much cheek ... Read More
