Follow high school seniors, Jules and West, as they put their lives back together after a tornado changes their world.
This box set includes all THREE full-length novels in one – From The Wreckage, Out of Ruins, All That Remains – PLUS special bonus scenes (over 10k words) from West’s POV that have never been seen before.
From the Wreckage, book one:
“In a matter of minutes on a Friday night, I lost my school, my identity, the security of my first love, the personality of my sweet fearless brother, my best friend, my town, everything as I knew it. Everything changed.”
“Minutes – that’s all it takes to change your entire life. How do you deal with that?”
For high school senior Jules Blacklin surviving the storm is only the beginning. Faced with the new reality of her life, she must find a way to rise From The Wreckage and answer the question – how do you get back to normal, when everything that was normal is gone?
Out of Ruins, book two:
“Guilt. A painful, lonely feeling. It seeps into your pores slowly as you go through life day by day. Like a disease, it blackens your heart with thoughts and memories of what you did, or in my case, what you didn’t do.”
Surviving the storm was only the beginning for Jules. Surviving the guilt? That is something only love can help her overcome.
All That Remains, book three:
Fear, guilt, and jealousy all rear their ugly heads as Jules and West strive to figure out what they want now that they’ve emerged from the wreckage of the storm.
A year has passed since the night Jules Blacklin and West Rutledge were thrown together by a tornado.
Now college freshmen, they’ve worked hard to overcome the tragedies of their pasts to start anew.
As they embark on their future, there is one last obstacle standing in the way of them finding complete happiness: themselves.

After another incident of sleepwalking, Aiyana Gamelle wakes up lying under the stars on the Beach of Sa’Fyre Island, an island off the cost of South Carolina with a rich Gullah and Native American history.

Knowing these incidents of sleepwalking have something to do with her long awaited transition into queen of the island, Aiyana shrugs them off as little more than a nuisance to be expected since her lineage leads to a mysterious African goddess.

Aiyana moves forward with plans to host a week long festival that will end with her succession to the island throne, but the murder of an important guest and the passing of her grandmother bring the festivities to a screeching halt.   Aiyana learns that the transition involves an unwanted possession and the revelation of a dark family curse.

Tentative Release Schedule For Armand Rosamilia #amwriting

I have quite a few releases coming out in the next year or so, and projects on my dry erase board and Excel spreadsheets. I decided to post them up here to see if I can actually get them all out. These are just the self-published works and don’t include anything for anthologies or books published by actual publishers, just the stuff I’m working on and putting out.

Of course, as always, this is very subject to change. It mostly likely will, since I can’t take into account the movie adaptation contracts until they suddenly appear and I get paid in advance to do them, knocking everything else to the side for a few weeks and pushing the schedule further into 2016.

That being said… here we go!


November 3rd 2015 – Highway To Hell 2

This one is already available for pre-sale and merges the first Highway To Hell zombie novella with the Dying Days: Origins story.


December 2015 – OPEN


January 2016 – Creeping Death (re-release)

Since the demise of the previous publisher I’ve decided to release this once again but this time myself. Pre-sale link once the new cover is finished.


February 2016 – Green River Blend

A horror novel and one of my favorite stories. Working on the cover now. This one is all about a small town being overrun with horrible things because of coffee. Yep. Coffee.


March 2016 – Dying Days 6

The next part to the zombie series. Also working on the cover as well as a slight revamp for the previous books (expect a post about that in a few days or so). Follow along as Darlene Bobich does her thing during the zombie apocalypse.


April 2016 – Belford Stories

Think my Flagler Beach Fiction Series. A contemporary fiction book, set in the little fishing village I grew up in and set in 1987. Photos throughout by photographer Tammy Kelly, who I grew up with in Belford.


May 2016 – Necromance (re-release)

The horror erotica series of short stories was never completed before the publisher went under. I am in the process of rewriting it into a single novel, with much less on the erotica and more on the paranormal aspect of the tale. She’s a demon hunter with a warlock for a dad and the minions of Hell trying to kill her. Working the cover soon with the same great model used on the shorts.


June 2016 – Dying Days YA novella

This will be the continuation of the Dying Days: Emalee And Mason short story I wrote for Bite-Sized Offerings anthology, furthering the story of the two children as they traverse a deadly world of zombies. Very excited to write this one.


July 2016 – Tool Shed Massacre (re-release)

The original Tool Shed horror novella is out of print. I’m going to expand it into a full-length novel and give more of the backstory. Still one of my favorite works and it never got much notice, so this will be fun to update.


August 2016 – OPEN


September 2016 – Death Metal (re-release)

Another book I loved that never got the release it deserved, in my humble opinion. I’ll rewrite and expand it into a full-length thriller novel and already have the ideas for a sequel if it does well. Fingers crossed.


October 2016 – OPEN


November 2016 – Dying Days 7

Seriously? Two Dying Days in the same year? Yep. Darlene and company’s story will continue sooner than later for the first time in… well, since I started writing the series. With the rest of the secondary books completed except for the YA novella, it’s time to do 2 a year from this point out. Until no one wants to read anymore and I don’t want to write it anymore.


There ya have it… hopefully this list will work out nicely and I can add a few more releases within the open months, although I’m going to relax a bit this coming year and enjoy it all more.

By all appearances, Coralie Cabot seems to have it all. Pedigree? Check. Money? Check. The right boyfriend, a ‘nice’ guy hand-picked by her father? Check. 
Everything is going along according to plan. 
There’s only one problem. 
It’s not her plan.
Coralie’s safe, predictable life has all but been decided for her, and that leaves her itching to take a walk on the wild side. 
Enter Devlin Masters, an elite male escort whose sole purpose is giving Coralie whatever her heart desires. As though he knows her down to her core, Devlin says and does all the right things—far better than her so-called Mr. Right back home. 
Hello, Mr. Wrong!
For a price, she can sow her wilder oats with this sexy ‘bad boy,’ no strings attached. 
Pretty soon the question isn’t, “Should a good girl have sex with a naughty hottie for hire . . .”
It’s, “Will she ever want to stop?”
In Book One of a sizzling new saga from author Ginger Voight, MASTERS FOR HIRE blends the line between fantasy and reality with all the drama, angst, sex, and romance that made THE GROUPIE and FULLERTON FAMILY SAGAS beloved amongst her fans.
Intended for readers 18+ for graphic sexual content.


Ginger Voight is a
screenwriter and bestselling author with over twenty published titles in
fiction and nonfiction. She covers everything from travel to politics in
nonfiction, as well as romance, paranormal, and dark, “ripped from the
headlines” topics like Dirty Little Secrets.
discovered her love for writing in sixth grade, courtesy of a Halloween
assignment. From then on, writing became a place of solace, reflection, and
security. This was never more true than when she found herself homeless in L.A.
at the age of nineteen. There, she wrote her first novel, Chasing Thunder,
longhand on notebook paper, while living out of her car. Fittingly, this book
will be the first released through a traditional publisher in 2015.
 In 1995, after
she lost her nine-day-old son, she worked through her grief by writing the
story that would eventually become The Fullerton Family Saga.
 In 2011, she embarked
on a new journey—to publish romance novels starring heroines who look more like
the average American woman. These “Rubenesque” romances have
developed a following thanks to her bestselling Groupie series. Other titles,
such as the highly-rated New Adult series, Fierce, tap into the
“reality-TV” preoccupation in American entertainment, which gives her
contemporary stories a current, pop culture edge.


 Known for
writing gut-twisting angst, Ginger isn’t afraid to push the envelope with
characters who are perfectly imperfect. Whether rich, poor, sweet, selfish,
gay, straight, plus-size or svelte, her characters are beautifully flawed and
three-dimensional. They populate her lavish fictional landscapes and teach us
more about the real world in which we live simply through their interactions
with each other. Ginger’s goal with every book is to give the reader a little
bit more than they were expecting, told through stories they’ll never forget.

Guest Post: War of the Worlds


Political posts on Facebook are enough to make you grit your teeth, aren’t they?  There is always the chance that once stated, the genie is out of the bottle and a flame war is on. I try to avoid the trap of stating my political beliefs. It’s a self-defense mechanism honed from growing up liberal in a conservative area. Every political post has potential for great discourse, but let’s face it. It’s probably going to devolve into name calling.

And I realize – there’s two kinds of people, and they don’t fall along political lines. They fall along the lines of a fixed mindset, vs a growth mindset. Fixed mindset people are raised to believe that they only get so much to start with, and they can’t change after they’ve reached a certain point. They think that’s all the intelligence they’ll ever get. They get what they’re born with and no more.

The growth mindset, meanwhile, embraces difficulty as a chance to learn. They see failure as a stepping stone to success, not a personal affront. They see challenges as something to try against, not something to run away from. And that is the crux of communication problems in America today.

These two states both live inside the political divide. Growth mindset appears in both conservative and liberal camps, as does fixed. It’s the fixed mindset that is causing the problem, in my opinion. I was raised in a fixed-mindset. There is something comforting about feeling in control of your life. Whenever challenges to that stability occur, it tends to rock the boat to the tipping point. People freak out when their ideas are threatened. They don’t want to entertain new ideas, because change is anathema.

Growth mindset accept that shit happens, and not only that, but they rise to the occasion when instability rocks their boat. They can hold two opposing opinions in their mind without threatening their security. They don’t take failure personally, and they respond positively to challenges.

This is a new concept for me, but I have seen people living the different mindsets without realizing it. My husband’s family come from the growth mindset. They are giving, caring people who have staunch beliefs but are not afraid to have them challenged. They are gracious, kind, and polite to all manner of people. They don’t gossip. They don’t judge.

Growing up in a rural area, I came into contact with a lot of judgmental folks. They were aggressive when challenged and did not want to give out chances. I felt isolated growing up, and I couldn’t figure out why I was seen as a threat by these people. My childhood was marked by schoolyard bullies and ostracism. I believed that I was as smart as I was ever going to be, and that I’d never amount to much.

I’m happy to tell you that the best part about a fixed mindset, is that it is capable of changing over into a growth mindset. I have been working to believe in myself. This means I’ve learned to trust that I have a voice. It also means I’ve learned to not take things so personally, and to not be so judgmental of others. I just had to learn to believe in myself, which sounds easy on paper but is a lot of work and soul-searching. I’m not crowing about this because I made the switch, however. I’m crowing because if I can do it, anybody can do it. Which means this terrible divide that we’re experiencing in politics and in our society can be healed. I am a firm believer in a better future, and this to me embodies hope. It is my wish that other people can read this and see the hope, and give a growth mindset a chance. Fair warning. A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.

Drew McKnight.

on to the beautiful.


Meet the authors…
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M.
Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something
soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been
dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her
fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the
pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick
reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty
about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street
before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the
window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called
her boss, and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and
told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly
So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.

Title: Something Precious
Author: M. Clarke
Release date: November 8th, 2015
Avery and Connor have twenty years of history—all of it bad.
Focused and highly competitive, Lieutenant Commander Avery Madigan is the poster girl for the modern naval aviator. Playing by the rules, Mad Dog Madigan garners glory both in the navy reserves and private sector. While a failed marriage gave her a son she adores, it also leaves her with battle scars from her
 ex-husband’s infidelity. However, Avery’s ready to try dating again. She even considers a vacation fling—as long as it doesn’t interfere with an upcoming business presentation.
Unlike Avery, Connor St. James believes if he wants to get ahead, he has to venture outside the bounds. After leaving the navy, Titan’s no-holds-barred philosophy is never more appropriate with the family business teetering on failure. With that all-important presentation behind him he can afford a little distraction especially if it comes in the form of the fiery tempered redhead who’s haunted his dreams ever since they were thirteen and he stole that first kiss.
The rivals finally act on a long-denied attraction, but fate once again pits them against one another. Can these rivals bury the past, or will competition once again ruin their chances at love?
