Bewitching Banner

Hunters Book Cover Fort Worth, Texas

Louis Riordan, a vicious, yet determined, master vampire rules the city with an iron thumb. Every thing that happens, every movement made – he knows it all. Surrounding himself with only the best, he seeks to extend his reign over the entire vampiric world, regardless of the consequences. His goal – to gain the allegiance of 16 of America’s top master vampires in hopes of achieving an awakening that will further cement his standing within the dominion that he’s created.

The Hunters have been privy to Riordan’s movements for ages, eager to take him down in any way possible. Considered a ragtag group of mercenaries, Riordan and his cohorts think that The Hunters are easy to take down. Little do they know, looks are definitely deceiving. Continue reading

Sample Chapter: One For All, And All For One

As most of you know, I’ve been working on a Historical Fiction/Romance novel titled ‘One For All, And All For One’. It centers around Louis XIV/France. This is the next book that I’m striving to release once it’s ready.

Well, I finally finished editing the first chapter and wanted to share it with you all. I hope you all enjoy what I’ve written.

I’d love to know what you all think of this new story.

 

Within The Bastille

 

 

Pushing the man into the small cell, the guard kicked the door shut behind him with the flick of his wrist and walked away without a backward glance. Howling with rage, Louis turned around and ran towards the closed door, ramming his shoulder against it.

“Let me out of here!” he cried. “You have no right to keep me here. I am the King, I tell you!”

The warden chortled, his maniacal laughter ringing throughout the dungeon. “Do ye hear that, boys? He proclaims himself to be the King!”

His brown eyes blazed with fury as he curled his hands into tight fists and banged them against the thick wood. “You have imprisoned the wrong man. I am the King! The man on the throne is an imposter.” Continue reading

Sample Chapter: Anticipation

Hiya, Peeps. How’s it going with you all?

I’ve been working on something new tonight. I know what you’re gonna say – that I already have several projects under my wing and I shouldn’t be writing new material.

I’m going openly blame my muse for this sudden burst of inspiration. Honest to goodness, he wouldn’t allow this idea to die, and kept pushing it and pushing it until I sat down tonight and gave free rein to what he wanted me to write. He’s been wanting me to write this little piece for days, I just kept putting it off till now.

The genre for this is Romance, Erotica. Yep, you heard it right. This had been a previously an untitled manuscript (utm, for short), but my muse has been quite attentive and decided to listen to a good friend’s suggestion. He has decreed that the book’s title shall be Anticipation, instead of allowing said name to be that of this first chapter. I must confess that I haven’t written this type of genre in years. There’s a long ass story behind it, but it would take forever to explain so we’ll leave things at that.

With that said, I’d like to share with you the first chapter of this manuscript. I hope you all enjoy it. Please, do let me know what you think of it.

Thank you kindly in advance! Continue reading

Another Review Of Stuck By Lucy Swing

Stuck Book Cover Lucy Swing graciously reviewed Stuck for me and forwarded me a copy of the review that she wrote. I wanted to share it with all of you.

Thank you so much for the review, Lucy!

 

 

 

Lucy Swing:

“Stuck” by Lissette E. Manning captured me from the very beginning; spiraling me into her post-apocalyptic world.  In this heart wrenching short story, we follow Annie as she leaves the safety of her home in search of means to provide for her family. As a mother myself, I felt the utter pain Annie went through leaving her children behind and the need to go out into the unknowing to ease her family’s hunger. Continue reading

A Review Of Stuck By Anthony Marchio

Stuck Book Cover Anthony Marchio, a screenwriter and fellow writer, recently reviewed my story, Stuck. Below you’ll find what he had to say.

Thank you so much for the review, Anthony. It’s much appreciated!

 

Anthony Marchio:

Where do I begin with this story.

From the title of it, you wouldn’t know what’s going on until the very end. The first-person story telling gives this book an amazing feel. The setting in the beginning is great and catches your attention. As the story progresses you get a sense of emotion. But you can’t figure out what it is. The vivid descriptions of the setting really bring this book to life. It’s an emotional ride and very powerful. It will have you tearing up. Continue reading
