Excerpt from BELOVED PILGRIM by Christopher Hawthorne Moss


by Christopher Hawthorne Moss
Historical Transgender YA 
From Harmony Ink
Harmony Ink Press | DSP

At the time of the earliest Crusades, young noblewoman Elisabeth longs to be the person she’s always known is hidden inside. When her twin brother perishes from a fever, Elisabeth takes his identity to live as a man, a knight. As Elias, he travels to the Holy Land, to adventure, passion, death, and a lesson that honor is sometimes found in unexpected places.

Elias must pass among knights and soldiers, survive furious battle, deadly privations, moral uncertainty, and treachery if he’ll have any chance of returning to his new-found love in the magnificent city of Constantinople.

Elisabeth found herself left out of the boys’ preparations. She could only stand on the periphery and watch glumly as the three men in her life spent every waking moment arranging to leave her behind, to a fate she could not comprehend. She realized how much more her mother must dread this parting. Though they had rarely talked, mother to daughter, she Elisabeth sought her Adalberta out and confided her fears.

“Mama, how will we bear it?” she sighed while the two sat together in Adalberta’s solar.

Adalberta put a comforting hand on her daughter’s supple one. “That is our lot, my dear. Women wait while men go abroad.”

“Men are so selfish!” Elisabeth could not restrain her outburst.

Her mother shook her head. “Nay, it is not selfishness. It is duty. Theirs is to obey their masters. Ours is to obey them.”

“I don’t understand why it has to be like that. Peasant men and women work together in almost everything. I have seen them, side by side in the fields, planting or harvesting. Why can we not do the same? And why do they have to go to war anyway? It seems to me that life would be so much better without going to war.” Elisabeth’s face held a petulant sort of challenge.

Elisabeth seemed pensive. Her mother finally prodded, “What else bothers you, my daughter?”

Elisabeth raised bleak eyes to her mother’s face. With a hushed voice, she asked her, “Mama, do you think since Elias and I are twins, I might be more like him than if I had been born separately?”

Adalberta’s frowned, her forehead furrowing. “What do you mean?”

“I mean, what if I am not entirely a girl? What if being twins means Elias and I share some of each other’s, um, manliness and womanliness?”

“What in the Virgin’s name are you talking about?” her mother said querulously.

Elisabeth would not meet her eyes. She did not share her thoughts about her brother’s “unmanly” love for his friend. She was uncertain how to describe her own feelings of being in the wrong body. “I don’t know. I just don’t feel like a girl. I don’t want anything of a woman’s life. I don’t enjoy sitting and sewing and waiting for the men to do all the living. I want to live too. I want what boys have.”

Sighing, her mother shook her head. “I have failed you, my daughter, and for that I am most heartily sorry. I have not spent the time with you that I should. You spend all your time in your brother’s company, never learning what it is to be a woman. I hoped Marta would fill my place, but she is even more indulgent than I.” Reaching to cradle Elisabeth’s chin in her palm, she drew Elisabeth’s reluctant eyes to her own. “Perhaps it is best if my lord does go to the Holy Land and prays for my health. Perhaps it is not too late for me to spend the time with you I have neglected. There is so much you have to learn before you are wed.”

Fear clouded Elisabeth’s eyes. “And that is another thing! I hardly know Reinhardt. What I do remember, I did not like.”

“He is strong and can provide for you and your children. He is an honorable man you can be proud of.” She let go of her daughter’s chin. “It is for the best.”

Elisabeth stood and stepped stiffly to the window embrasure. “I shan’t need to be provided for. I will die giving birth to his brats just like his other wives. That’s all women are for. To have babies, then die.” Her thoughtless words hit her like a slap. She whirled to face her mother. “Oh, my dearest Mama, I am so sorry! I did not mean….”

Adalberta shook her head compassionately. “I know you did not mean to hurt my feelings. And truly, darling, I understand your fear. You cannot know the joys that make it all worthwhile. The companionship of your husband, the satisfaction of running your household, and, most of all, the love for your children.” She put out her thin arms to Elisabeth, who went to her, knelt, and leaned into the embrace.

“You have Papa. He loves you. That is why you endure it all.”

Pressing Elisabeth’s head to her breast, she Adalberta reassured her, “Your Papa and I love each other very much, and it is true. But we did not even know each other when we were wed. Love came over time. And from our union came you and your brother. Just think, if I had thought like you do now, none of that could have ever come about.”

Elisabeth nodded against her mother’s body. “I don’t understand how Papa can go and leave you suffering.”

“It is because I am suffering that he is going!”

Looking up at her mother’s strained expression, Elisabeth shook her head. “I know that, Mama, but it is more. He wants to go. Almost as much as Elias and Albrecht. Why do they want to go and leave us behind?”

Adalberta pulled her daughter Elisabeth up so she could sit beside her on the settle. Putting her arm around Elisabeth’ Elisabeth’s waist, she chuckled. “I think you know why the boys want to go. As for your father….” She paused. “Let me see if I can explain it. Your father was ever a loyal man to Emperor Henry, in spite of the great man’s petty quarrels with the Holy Father. Over the years, he has become disillusioned. He says that he now believes that the emperor has used the disputes simply for his own arrogant purposes.” She leaned he
r head on Elisabeth’s. “You know your father is a brave and honorable knight. He needs to turn his energies to a worthy cause. He needs… redemption.”

Elisabeth subsided. “I know, Mama. But I will miss them all. And I will worry as well.”

“As will I, dearest. As will I.” She lifted her head and leaned to look into Elisabeth’s face. “But think of it, liebchen, we have a wedding to plan! Is that not exciting too?”

Without conviction Elisabeth answered, “Yes, Mama.”

Shielding Her Heart by Cheryl Yeko

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Release Date: Jan 8 2014
Edition/Format Available In: eBook
The woman Rick Smyth desires has shut him out of her life after being brutally beaten in her own home. But as a new threat arises, Sheila now turns to him for protection.
This time, not only does he vow to keep her safe, but he’s determined to win her heart as well.

Tag Line

The woman he desires shut him out of her life after being attacked in her home. When she’s threatened by a stalker he steps back in to protect her. Only this time, he’s determined to win her heart.


Rick made his way up her front steps and onto her porch stopping just in front of her. “Good morning,” he drawled. His sexy voice slid over her in a warm caress at the same time his eyes seemed to drink her in.

Her body responded to his intense gaze with a flash of heat that centered at her core. Sheila swallowed. It had been way too long since she’d taken a lover. Maybe Rick was exactly what she needed to get on with her life again. Sex. That’s all it’d be, she assured herself.

He stood in her doorway like a Greek god, all damp and sexy. His shirt clung to his broad shoulders and hard chest, his windblown hair curled into a sexy mop and his long, dark lashes glistened with raindrops that he blinked away as he studied her. His full mouth lifted into a smile and mesmerized her. She wanted nothing more than to lean over and lick the drops of rain off his lips. Her pulse quickened and her breasts tingled. Who was she kidding? Sex with this man would shake the foundation of her world.

As though reading her thoughts, Rick’s eyes darkened and he visibly tensed. “Sheila,” he said with a warning note.

“What?” She nibbled her bottom lip.

He leaned in just as another burst of lightning lit the sky and the rain came down a little harder, but she barely noticed as his mouth skimmed her ear. “You keep looking at me like that, darlin’, and I may have to kiss you. And who knows where that might lead?”

Sheila’s pulse rocketed and her thighs trembled. When he lightly nuzzled her neck she squeezed her legs together as desire had her center pooling with moisture. She gulped.

Rick chuckled. He lifted his head and gazed down at her, making her feel all warm and feminine inside.

“You gonna let me in, honey?”

Sheila blinked. The raindrops, carried by the wind, touched her face and penetrated her dazed mind. “I—I’m not sure I should after a statement like that.” Her voice held a husky quality.

Rick quirked a brow and ran a finger down her cheek then stepped forward, crowding her until she backed into the room. He quietly shut the door behind him and leaned the umbrella against the wall, never taking his eyes off her.

Can out-and-proud high school teacher Skyler Foxe find the Redlands firebug before he falls prey to a killer?

High school English teacher Skyler Foxe is now out and proud, even though a few months ago he had no intention of being so. But since the cat is now out of the bag, he embraces it as well as his boyfriend, head football coach, Keith Fletcher. But who is that good-looking gay parent hanging around Keith, causing mischief at the school as well as in Skyler’s private life? And then someone from Skyler’s past returns, stirring up trouble. Add to that a firebug and suddenly everyone seems up to no good, especially when a smoldering corpse is found outside of the local gay bar. Skyler can’t help himself and he gets up to his old sleuthing tricks once more.

Where were you born and where do you call home?

I’m an L.A. gal, born and bred. In fact I’ve lived all my life in southern California, inhaling smog and enduring earthquakes. I moved to the Inland Empire—an inland portion of socal that lacks a coastline and therefore seems to encourage the more religious and redneckky individuals. It’s part of the reason I write the Skyler Foxe series, to comment on the less tolerant in an otherwise fairly liberal state.


What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 30 or less words, what would you say?

FOXE FIRE: Out-and-proud high school teacher Skyler Foxe worries about that good-looking gay parent hanging around his boyfriend. Add to that a firebug and a smoldering corpse and Skyler gets up to his old sleuthing tricks.


I love reading the warnings on the blurbs for many books. If you could write a warning label for yourself as a person or an author, what would it say?

Prickly when rubbed the wrong way. Caution: Snark Ahead.


If you gave some of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?

That’s a good question. Perhaps my protagonist Skyler would ask me why I make him do such stupid things, and I would counter that I used to be a twenty-five-year old and I well remember the stupid things I did. But I think he’d thank me for his love life. J


What does your protagonist think about you? Would he or she want to hang out with you, the author?

Since he’s a lot of me he would probably like hanging out with me, though I was never a party person like he is. But we would crack jokes back and forth, and I do approve of his reading list.

Which character speaks the loudest, to you? Do any of them clamor to be heard over the others?

Skyler, of course. As I said, he’s me in many ways, but I think he’s a lot braver than I am. He stands up for himself in ways I can’t even imagine doing, facing murderers and homophobes. And I have taught kids, and you really must love it to try to get through to those little bas— I mean eager young minds, because high school kids are the worst!


Do your characters try to make like bunnies and create ever more convoluted plots for you? Or do you have to coax them out of your characters?

I outline my plots ahead of time so I pretty much know what’s going to happen. But as with any organic experience, the writing of it can veer you off of the outline. More things occur and you make a left turn here and there. That’s the fun part of writing; when a character you never heard of before walks in the door and suddenly you have to find a name for him and a backstory.


Have you based any of your characters on someone you know, or real events in your own life?

Well, as I said, I based a lot of Skyler’s personality traits on myself, though I’m not a man and I’m not gay. But the first three books are based on real events—no matter how outlandish they may seem—that happened at my son’s high school. Really!

How did you come up with the title?

All the titles are based on something to do with foxes. And the quotations in the front of the book, too. It’s fun coming up with them. I hope I don’t run out!


Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

The message is always love, trust, acceptance, friendship will win the day. Bad things might happen in the books but I always want to leave the reader laughing and happier that they spent time with Skyler and friends.


Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series?jeri-on-a-camel

This is the newest book, FOXE FIRE. The next book in the series has Skyler and friends heading off to the White Party in Palm Springs and is called DESERT FOXE. And after that another novella of short vignettes about summer vacation, with one of the stories to feature his high school students. Then the series will just go on until I find a good place to end it.

Where do you see yourself in five (5) years?

Finally a successful author, making a living at what I do. So many authors can’t do that. And with eleven books in two different genres, you’d think I’d be making a living by now, but I’m not. So I hope my hard work will finally pay off.

Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?

I prefer print. It’s hard to read a digital book, even though I do it all the time while editing my own work. I don’t enjoy it. I enjoy the tactile nature of a book. And it’s funny, but I always print out the manuscript to edit it. I’ve read studies that prove that you retain more information by reading print rather than digital, so that comes as no surprise to me.


Are you a self published (Indie) Author or big trade published?


I think it’s pretty tough trying to get noticed as a self-published author without having the ready audience from traditionally published books. I don’t recommend it to authors. I was traditionally published first with a big New York house for my medieval mysteries (, and then traditionally published by MLR Press for the Skyler books. Once I established a fan base, I self-published a novella to go along with the Skyler books. And that was fun and interesting, but I still prefer that the mundane tasks (editing, formatting, proofreading, cover design) be handled by someone else. After all, I still have the lionshare of promotion to do myself.

With my medieval mysteries, they do it all, too, but I am self-pubbing a prequel in the spring just to see how that goes. I am also writing a new urban fantasy series ( that my agent is shopping now. This is a very tough business, and these genres (gay mysteries, historical mysteries) are very difficult to make a living with, so I really don’t recommend going it on your own until you are established. It’s so much harder to do. It took me over a decade to get published and I learned a lot about writing and the industry along the way. Writers who rush to publish are not learning what they need to learn, and I fear they are wasting their time and money.

What do you think makes a book a really good/bestseller ?

If I knew the secret to that…


Have you ever suffered from a “writer’s block”? What did you do to get past the “block”?

I outline. It’s the only sure-fire method. I have three books to write a year in three different genres. I haven’t got time for writer’s block. But if you outline, even very loosely in a chapter by chapter outline, you at least know where you are headed each day. My minimum is writing 10 pages a day and that can take all day.


What was your favourite chapter (or part) to write and why?

And no, it’s not the sex scenes. It’s the comedy scenes. When I make myself laugh out loud, I know I’ve got something.

Have you ever read a book more than once?

I used to all the time, but there are so many books on my TBR pile that I feel obligated to jump in with new stuff. But I used to never put down a book once I started, and now I fling them away. I’m a lot pickier. If you can’t interest me in the first few pages it isn’t worth my time. After all, as a writer, I have to do the same thing. I have to grab your interest in the first few pages. If I have to do the work, I expect other authors to do it too.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Yes, don’t do it! Don’t do it expecting to make a lot of money. Don’t do it if you can’t take rejection. Rejection is your friend. It makes you work hard, discovering where you’ve failed. Don’t do it if you don’t want to put the time in. Don’t tell me you don’t have time to write. I wrote part time, working part time, and raising a toddler. If I had the time, you have the time. Writers write and they read. If you don’t like reading books, what makes you think what you write will be what others want to read? Writers read EVERYTHING. Not just books in the genres they write, but everything. Be curious. Write a lot. Edit out a lot. Kill your darlings. Read what’s successful and write what you love.


What is the best advice that you have ever been given when it comes to writing?

Don’t give up.


Do you write under a pen name?

Haley Walsh is my pen name.

Cats or dogs?

Cats. They take care of themselves and they smell good.


White wine or red?

White with fish, red with meat.


Coffee or tea?

Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon.


Favourite food?

Toss up between lobster drenched in butter and a really good T-bone.

Vanilla or chocolate ice cream?


What are 4 things you never leave home without?

My keys, a pen, money, and gum.

Laptop or desktop for writing?

Laptop. Desktop for designing.


Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?

My home office. Hubby built the desk and shelves just for me.



One of your favourite quotes

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” Groucho Marx

List 3 of your all time favourite books?

Just three? Because they are all series. The Lord of the Rings, the Harry Potter series, Lord Peter Wimsey series.

TWO ROADS by L.M. Augustine


The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.

Ever since Cali’s parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better–and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn’t hurt that he’s part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.

But when Cali’s parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.

And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren’t that obnoxious after all…

Two Roads is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are. It contains some language and mild sexual content.

“Then go to him,” I say quietly, and now I look up to meet her gaze. Her brown eyes are hard and strong, watching me intently. “Go out with him,” I continue. “Or don’t. But don’t let him go. Because if someone can be constantly on your mind like that, if they can always make you smile, if they can cheer you up one way or another, then you have to go to them. You have to tell them what they mean to you and then you can go out with them or you can stay friends or you can barely ever talk to them, but you enjoy yourself, you have fun, and then you hold fast to them and never, ever let them go. Because if someone, just by their existence, can brighten up your whole day, you have to try like hell to keep them in your life.” I take a long breath as soon as the words finish tumbling out of my mouth, a jumble of thoughts and feelings that, for me, couldn’t be more true. I don’t know where they came from other than straight from that goddamn unpredictable heart of mine, and as soon as the words leave my mouth, I know my subconscious has been working on them for a long time.

L.M. Augustine is a YA romance author who is obsessed with writing about dorky teenagers, love, and happy endings. He currently lives in New England, where he spends far too much time reading books and screaming at his computer, and he believes that the solution to the world’s problems can be found in chocolate cake.

Cover Reveal: Shot Through The Heart by D’Ann Lindun

Genre: Western Romance
Length: 157 pages / 2435 kb

Buy: Amazon

Laramie Porter has tried to get her drug-addicted brother help, but he’s refused every time. When Laramie finds his wife—and her best friend—murdered, she vows to have him convicted. Before she can flee, her brother takes Laramie and his wife’s body into the mountains and throws them from a cliff. Somehow, Laramie lands on a ledge. After what her brother has done, Laramie doesn’t want to ever believe in another man, but Derrick earns her trust when he protects her from the man who would see her dead.

To cover up the evidence of his crime, Lawrence starts a wildfire.

Derrick Garrison is through with women after he learns his ex-wife was a bigamist who only wanted his money. Believing a lightning strike has started a wildfire, he’s pushing his cattle out of harm’s way when he discovers a woman huddled on a cliff side. Derrick can’t believe the same sheriff who helped bring his ex to justice murdered his wife. But when the cocaine addicted lawman tracks Laramie through a raging fire, attempting to kill them both, Derrick becomes a true believer. His protective instinct kicks in and he falls in love with the woman in danger.

Together, they survive the fire, the attempts on their lives and a bounty on their heads…to see justice served. And fall in love.

Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there’s just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, two ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!
