A body at rest stays at rest unless acted on by an equal and opposite force. 
– Newton’s First Law of Motion

Selena Caryll lost everything in the war: her ship, her crew, her family. The only thing keeping her going is the hope that somehow the feuding, ground-bound settlers and the fuelless space fleet can set aside their differences. But getting the politically-fractured fleet moving again is more than she can manage alone. For now, she has to settle for working undercover with the planetary police force.

When someone tries to reignite conflict between the planet-siders and the fleet, there’s only one person who has the rank and ability to help Selena protect the fleet: Titan Sciarra, Fleet Guardian—the one man she’s tried hardest to avoid since the war destroyed her life.

In a world where the stagnant weight of tradition can be as deadly as any knife, the only way to survive is to keep moving.


BODIES IN MOTION will be serialized on the blog this summer with new chapters every Tuesday and Friday starting June 13th. The full novel will be available in print and ebook September 19th, 2017.


Decoherence 1

Readers of Blake Crouch’s DARK MATTER and Wesely Chu’s TIME SALVAGER will love Liana Brooks’ DECOHERENCE–the thrilling, time-bending conclusion to the Time & Shadow series!

Samantha Rose and Linsey MacKenzie have established an idyllic life of married bliss in Australia, away from the Commonwealth Bureau of Investigation, away from mysterious corpses, and—most of all—away from Dr. Emir’s multiverse machine.

But Sam is a detective at heart, and even on the other side of the world, she can’t help wonder if a series of unsolved killings she reads about are related—not just to each other, but to the only unsolved case of her short career.

She knows Jane Doe’s true name, but Sam never discovered who killed the woman found in an empty Alabama field in spring of 2069. She doesn’t even know which version of herself she buried under a plain headstone.

When Mac suddenly disappears, Sam realizes she is going to once more be caught up in a silent war she still doesn’t fully understand. Every step she takes to save Mac puts the world she knows at risk, and moves her one step closer to becoming the girl in the grave.

DECOHERENCE hits the shelves September 13th!

WHEN FIRST THEY PRACTICE TO DECEIVE – cover reveal and guest post by Carolyn LaRoche


I’d like to thank Liana for inviting me to visit her blog today. I am very excited about my upcoming new release from Limitless Publishing, When First They Practice to Deceive. This is the third book in the Secret Lives series and I am absolutely in love with this cover! The artist, from Wicked by Design captured my vision perfectly and I hope you love it as much as I do.

Writing is something I have always done. In the beginning it was a way to pass the time late at night when I couldn’t sleep. My husband is a police officer in a pretty active city who he worked the graveyard shift for a decade. Some nights my overly active imagination just wouldn’t settle down so I began to channel it into stories. Mostly, I just sent them to friends to read in the beginning. With my background in forensic science, I especially enjoyed mysteries and crime stories where I could work in the science of investigation along with the entertainment of a fast paced story and the hint of romance.

Several years ago I joined an online group on a social media site made up of other police wives. It is a small group that began with the idea of supporting each other through some of the challenges of law enforcement family life. It grew into a group of friends that would pretty much do anything for each other. It was from that group the idea for my Secret Lives Series blossomed.  Each book tells a story of intrigue—and yes, romance—for one of the wives in a group of close friends. They are all married to cops at some point in the story and find themselves caught up in some crazy situations. The series is fun and entertaining and I am so excited to be close to finishing it up.

The first book, Undercover in Six Inch Stilettos is about Cyndi Mills and her quest for something in her life that is all her own. She makes some wild choices that she ultimately has to own up to for the safety of her family and the sanctity of her marriage. My favorite part of the story though, is the steaming hot chemistry between Cyndi and her husband Jason. Not all romances are best before marriage.

The second book in the series, In The Shadow of the Shield tackles the big what if of being married to a cop. What if something happens to him in the line of duty? What if the reason has to do with other cops? It was a tough topic to tackle for me personally because I was basically forced to face my own biggest fear—loss of my husband.  Diana not only has to figure out how to move forward in life but allow herself to love again—with a younger man determined to crack the mystery of her husband’s death. Romance—and chemistry— doesn’t die at age forty.

When First They Practice to Deceive is Jessy’s story. The youngest in the group, she struggles with self-confidence, especially after losing her job and learning about her husband’s infidelity. She discovers her own strengths as she goes through the trials of divorce and finding out that her husband had been doing a lot more behind her back than she had ever imagined. Things kick up a notch when she finds herself falling in love with the man who is determined to bring her husband to justice.  A man carrying his own heartbreak and loss who has Jessy hoping she can be enough to save him the way he saves her.

Each book in the series has colorful supporting characters because we all know that the world is not at all black and white. I had almost as much fun writing them as I did the main hero and heroine. Johnny the bartender is by far my favorite (Undercover in Six Inch Stilettos) but Lookie Louie the pot head(In the Shadow of the Shield) and Arnetta and Surrey the servers that teach Jessy more than her job(When First They Practice to Deceive) had me laughing out loud. The best part about creating characters is the ability to let my imagination run wild.

When First They Practice to Deceive  has a release date of May 3, 2016. I can’t wait to hold a copy of that beautiful cover in my hands! If you’d like to read the first two books before then, they are both available on amazon at the link below, along with all the books I’ve written.

Cover Reveal – MAGIC BITTER MAGIC SWEET by Charlie N. Holmberg

The peculiar tale of an enchanted baker who creates fairy tales’ darkest and most magical confections.

Maire is a baker with an extraordinary gift: she can infuse her treats with emotions and abilities, which are then passed on to those who eat them. She doesn’t know why she can do this and remembers nothing of who she is or where she came from.

When marauders raid her town, Maire is captured and sold to the eccentric Allemas, who enslaves her and demands that she produce sinister confections, including a witch’s gingerbread cottage, a living cookie boy, and size-altering cakes.

During her captivity, Maire is visited by Fyel, a ghostly being who is reluctant to reveal his connection to her. The more often they meet, the more her memories return, and she begins to piece together who and what she really is—as well as past mistakes that yield cosmic consequences.


From the author of the Paper Magician series comes a haunting and otherworldly tale of folly and consequence, forgiveness and redemption.
Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet is available for preorder on Amazon and B&N. Ebook, audiobook, and paperback release from 47North June 28th!
You can also preview the novel on Goodreads.
