Nathan Squiers – The Literary Dark Emperor

 Born in Massachusetts in 1986, Nathan Squiers (The Literary Dark Emperor) grew up in Andover, where his affinity for story-telling flourished due to a love of books and movies as well as an overactive imagination. At the age of 13, Nathan and his mother moved to Upstate New York to be closer to their family.

After surviving public school, where he spent most of his days locked away in the AV room watching old 80s movies on Laserdisc and planning out his next video project, Nathan began a shaky college career. A love of weaving tales and telling stories was motivation enough to pursue an education in English, and, as luck would have it, a series of phenomenal professors were available to get him pointed in the right direction. It was in his first years of college that Nathan began to actively pursue a writing career, starting his first literary journey with a piece that would later become "Noir", the first book of the Crimson Shadow series.

Like any good story, a chaotic turn of events brought Nathan from the very brink of insanity and loneliness to the warm, comforting embrace of Megan, his best friend, lover, kindred spirit, and--more often than not--personal handler. It was with Megan at his side that Nathan was able to continue his writing (sometimes solely motivated by the young lady's threats of dismemberment if he tried to stop). With Megan's help, Nathan was able to see Death Metal, his fourth manuscript, through the publication process.

Nearly ten years later, The Literary Dark Emperor (now a multi-award winning author and co-owner/manager of Tiger Dynasty Publishing) continues to invent stories and put them into a literary sequence that he hopes will be somehow decipherable by other readers. As a lover of all things creative, he works in both novels, novellas, short stories, as well as comic book scripts (just don't ask him to draw something if you don't like stick figures and poorly-executed shapes).

If he's not submerged in the realm of fiction or burning out his retinas with horror movie marathons, Nathan is planning/getting a new piercing/tattoo or enjoying life with his lovely fiancé and fellow author, Megan J. Parker.

Gracen Miller's ROAD TO HELL series

Madison's Life Lessons:

(Prequel to the Road to Hell Series)


Fate can mark one early for a particular future. Madison Wescott’s life is Hell on earth. Her father, a Baptist Preacher, convinces her she’s morally corrupt when men notice her blooming beauty. She strives to be unnoticeable, but nothing satisfies her condemning parents. And sometimes fate has nothing to do with one’s potential. Temptation rears its head when Micah Dominus visits her father’s church on Christmas morning, but she is unprepared for her physical reaction to him. Frightened by her own emotions, she is grateful she’ll never see him again. But when he shows up again at a friend’s funeral, and at other times in her life, she’s swayed by his charisma. Micah becomes her white knight through the good and bad, but can they create the perfect life together? Or has she just located the beginning of the Road to Hell? Supernatural forces more powerful than fate can claim one’s destiny…

Excerpt
She swung about and headed for the door. A few feet away something smashed into the back of her head, knocking her to her knees. Blackness coiled her vision, narrowing to pinpoints of light. Slamming her palms on the floor, she struggled against the encroaching darkness.
I won’t pass out! Not now when an adversary attacked and two of her protectors were unreachable.
Her Lynx jacked her nervous system and thrust to the forefront, eliminating the intruding blackout.
All stealth evaporated as solid footsteps announced her antagonizer’s advance. Madison tensed, readying her magic, while pretending defeat and waiting for her attacker to present oneself.
“I gave you the prophecy so you could avoid the outcome, you stupid bitch.” A female voice snarled. “Not so you’d follow the divination.”
Black footwear came into view, and Madison followed the attire up. A solid costume of black shrouded the female. No, not clothing…feathers. She tilted her head back to get a good gander of the creature’s face.
Crow.
It’d been five years since she last saw the woman. So much of what the woman prophesized had come true.
Madison’s fingertips tickled with electricity, but she held the power just beneath the surface. She notched her voice low, forcing it to sound breathy, and hoping the woman would think she’d been weakened by the blow to her head. “What outcome would you have had me avoid?”
A blur of movement and Crow struck her jaw. Madison chugged the feathered creature’s magic for a minuscule moment, then the other woman’s touch was gone, and Madison landed flat on her back.
Shit, that hurt!
Taking her down will be glorious. On that she and her succubus agreed. One touch at a time and she’d slowly drain the crow.
A kick to her hip and another to her shoulder, and each time the crow touched her Madison chugged more of her power. Another blow to her jaw…Madison tasted blood on her tongue and groaned at the pain that burst through her skull.
Before she could evade more of the violence, the woman was on her, wrenching Madison up on her knees by the hair. The feathered woman tugged her head back until their gazes connected.
Black hair hung around Crow’s face. Her eyes were so black there was no visible beginning and end to her pupils.
“I gave you a prophecy so you would defeat the Kings by killing them.” Hatred curled Crow’s upper lip. “Instead you became the fucking Queen of Hell.”
Madison reached back and touched the hand snarled in the strands of her hair. She swigged the bitch’s power faster than a frat boy funneling beer. Crow’s terror-laced scream caused Madison to wince, and her ears to ring. Crow reacted quicker than she preferred and shoved Madison away.
Madison rose to her feet, hopefully sending the message to her nemesis that she felt not an ounce of fear.
Crow tossed her hair over her shoulder and wobbled, a little unsteady on her feet with her magic depleted. “You’re stronger than the last time we met.”
“I’m the Queen of Hell. What’d you expect? Cinderella?”

The Road To Hell Series by Gracen Miller



“Genesis Queen”
Book 3 in ROAD TO HELL series
(Pandora’s Box and Hell’s Phoenix are must reads prior to reading Genesis Queen)
“Gracen has a talent for making the most macabre and horrifying situations so highly erotic and completely captivating.” ~ Shelley Bunnell, Tsk Tsk What to Read
Genesis Queen Blurb:
Victory is hollow when fate maneuvers one as a pawn.
Madison’s mission is complete. Nix is rescued from Hell and her son safe from his dark destiny. But as she rests in the safe harbor of Nix’s love, her demonic husband warns of a murderous plot. Can she trust that it’s the truth and not another scheme to claim her for Hell’s throne?
             Sometimes internal conflict can house our biggest demons.
With allies divided and prophecy heralding defeat, Madison gambles on Micah’s tenuous honor to keep their son protected. Torn between her heart’s desires and her dark requirements, Madison worries her hellish fate cannot be avoided. When betrayal comes from an unlikely direction, all their futures may be damned. In the darkest hour of Madison’s life, an undeniable providence will transpire. Who can she trust? And how far will she fall to defeat her foes?
Amid the rubble of defeat, will Hell’s Genesis Queen dawn?
Genesis Queen Excerpt:
“I like the way you move, kitten.”
She took a deep breath, like she needed the extra oxygen to deal with him. “Did you square away the angels in Hell?”
“Yes.” Details weren’t necessary when they both knew he’d instituted a brutal torture regimen for all of them. “Dance with me?”
“To this music?”
“You didn’t appear to be having any problem.” He held his hand out toward her.
She stared at his palm. Her expression was reminiscent of an individual confident selling their soul was a reckless choice but entering the deal anyway.
“I don’t bite.”
Her gaze felt like an impact against his. “You did in Hell.”
He wrangled the grin under control. “Then I won’t bite.”
“I don’t think it’s a good idea, Micah.”
“Why?”
A casual shrug when nothing about her body language suggested she felt relaxed. She crossed her arms beneath her breasts. “Nix says my idea of dancing is sex with clothes on. He couldn’t tolerate it and if he couldn’t….” She trailed off and gaped at him as if she’d just realized she’d been about to insult him.
Micah grinned. “I haven’t lived as long as I have without executing restraint.” He stepped closer to her. “I’ve controlled myself with you more than any other.” Because she is my woman and deserves my respect.
Madison allowed him to pull her arms free of their defensive fold. Holding her gaze, Micah coaxed her into his embrace…left hip to left hip, his leg thrusting between her knees, gliding upward and parting her thighs.
She bit her bottom lip. Her breathing grew shallow. The heavy beat of the music thumped around them. His pulse throbbed faster.
Hell’s delights, she felt fantastic against him.
“Relax,” he said when she remained inflexible. A soft wind would break one of her bones. “I only want to dance with you.” Like when they’d been married, just a different manner of movement. This one more intimate than what they normally partook.
Her focus locked on his jaw, and she sharply inhaled when he slid his palm down her back and settled on her hips. He executed the first moves and she followed. As if magnetized, they gyrated in perfect synchronicity.
