Put your hands together and let's give a warm welcome to my sweetheart of a friend, Emerald Barnes!!! This little southern belle has a charming wit that you can help but love, and she's on tour with her newest release, The Marked!!



Story Synopsis:
Knight’s Academy, Book 1
Myka Williams has never fit in with her peers, and although her adoptive parents are loving and supportive, she feels most at home alone in the woods. 

When she's offered a full scholarship to Knight's Academy in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she takes the opportunity for a fresh start. She soon learns that Knight’s Academy is more than just a school. Within the stone walls of the institution, humans and vampires are mixing, and their offspring are going unnoticed. 

As Myka falls prey to the evil plan of the school, she makes a chilling discovery about her own heritage and realizes that she’s at the Academy for more than just an education. Myka must yield to her birthright at the risk of losing everyone she loves or succumb to the fate that Knight’s Academy has in store for her—a fate worse than death.



From the Author's Desk:


Thanks, Amy, for having me on your blog today! I always love stopping by!
As a paranormal author, I write about different types of creatures, such as vampires, werewolves, angels and demons. I’ve written Christian paranormal novels, and I’ve recently released a teen paranormal book about vampires and werewolves. There was a fairly big difference in writing the two for me.
Writing Christian fiction is always great. My Christianity is a huge part of who I am, and I love writing about how God loves us. But before I became well known for writing Christian fiction, I wrote this book called Knight’s Academy, but it soon became known as The Marked.
When I wrote The Marked, I was all into vampires and werewolves. I had a thing for Twilight and The Vampire Academy series, so I guess that’s why I was dreaming about vampires, and the dream is what inspired my book.
Writing about vampires and werewolves was so different to me than writing about angels. With my angels, I tried to make sure I kept them as Biblical as possible. It really bothers me when authors write about angels in a non-Biblical way, so I took what I knew about angels and did my best to keep them as real as I could in a fictional novel. But with The Marked, I had more leeway. I could do anything and everything I wanted with these fictional creatures. I was able to change some well-known ideas about werewolves, and I was able to keep some well-known ideals about vampires. With angels and demons, I didn’t feel as if I could do that. I kept them as close to facts from the Bible that I could determine.
And that’s what’s great about paranormal fiction. No one thing is correct. You can have immortal vampires, and if you choose, mortal vampires. You can have Biblical angels and angels that aren’t Biblical. It’s completely up to you. Though, as I said, I try to keep things as real as possible with my angels.
The paranormal genre is so important to the fictional world, and I think that’s why I love writing it so much! It offers an escape to reality. It offers this who unusual world to be a part of. It’s fun. It’s dangerous. It’s amazing! That’s what it’s like for me when I’m reading or writing it.
And if I’m writing it from a Christian perspective, I like being able to use this unusual genre to garner the attention of readers and help show them how much they are loved. I use it to help shed light on difficult topics that I can broach but still keep the book in a fun perspective. I like having that option.
So, if I had to compare and contrast the paranormal genre and the Christian paranormal genre, I would say, in general, they have more similarities than differences. They’re both fun. They can be used to help readers overcome personal issues, and they can help them escape reality for a while. The difference? Christian paranormal books tend to be more focused in reality; in something that I believe can actually happen.  
What do you think would be the main difference in the two types of paranormal fiction?

    3. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cares about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Marcus can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family and I are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Marcus . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his Email: drmarcushome@gmail.com or drmarcushome@yahoo.com

    4. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.

I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr OYAKHIRE . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.OYAKHIRE for help now..Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: +2347084100646 ,Email him at:droyakhireherbalhome@gmail.com

  13. DR ISIKOLO is simply the best spell caster and helper. My name is Loreta Emilio, Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony know to all. I've been to other spell casters without seeing any result. I just wished I came to you earlier, i got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduce me to Dr Isikolo After the Love Spell was done and in 48 hours as he promised, I finally got a calls from him. His spells worked wonders and my husband is back with full of love. It's a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should forgive him, i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back. I'm really short of words and joyful, And now i am a joyful woman once again. Thank you so much Dr Isikolo. To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster should contact DR ISIKOLO On his email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also WhatsApp him on +1(725)240-4536
