Synopsis of four of the seventeen stories:

From “A Process of Elimination.” When a man purchases a remote log cabin in the Adirondacks, he believes he has found a peaceful haven, until he discovers a stranger dead on his living room rug.

From “The Organization.” A man, looking for a new adventure, joins a unique organization and quickly learns that getting what you want can sometimes lead to unimagined consequences.

From “A Sharp Bend in the Road.” Following a devastating fall, Rita finds herself standing outside the dining hall at an independent living facility. She squeezes the handle of her cane, and her knuckles turn white. Her wire-rimmed glasses accentuate the tears she tries to hide. After eighty-two years, and a lifetime of memories, Rita believes she's been abandoned at the mouth of a fiery dragon that will swallow her up-and she is terrified.

From “The Long Ride.” Two couples set out on a vacation in Maine, only to find their dreamy trip has turned into a getaway nightmare.

Gerard Bianco shares a fresh voice in short storytelling.  A Sharp Bend in the Road redefines the art of the short story collection. Seventeen stories, built around absorbing characters, strong conflicts, and sometimes dark and absurdly humorous ingredients, prove that the journey through life never travels in a straight line.

How would you categorize The Clock Strikes Midnight, a story of retribution or resolution?

I’d say The Clock Strikes Midnight is a story of revenge and resolution. The main character is anxious for revenge, but she finds as the book progresses that what she really wants is to resolve the issues of the past that have tormented her and her sister.

Janie Knox is an interesting character.  How did she develop in your mind’s eye?

Janie began as a rebellious teenager who lived in a dysfunctional home. I can’t say how she developed without talking about her sister, Marlene. The two grew up in the same environment, but were affected differently by that world. One contrasts with the other. When one is crashing the other is soaring and vice versa. The two characters play off one another throughout the story.

Love & Horror 
is a thoughtful collection of three short stories focusing on the darkness of relationships. This series includes Touch, Camp 12, and A Short and Unexpected Death.

Lionhead (Volume 1) 
Riley Bale is one tough girl. Plagued with a mysterious illness for much of her young life and living as an orphan with her two cold and distant older sisters, Riley has dealt with being bullied by becoming a bully herself. After a rough day at Astoria Middle School, and an unexpected meeting with a strange old woman named Mrs. Telby, Riley begins to realize that she is being protected by forces beyond anything she could have possibly imagined. Desperate to escape her life in Astoria, when Riley is tested and then invited to attend Lionhead Shifter School, she accepts the opportunity on blind faith alone. Once there, Riley not only discovers her true identity as a shifter, but meets two boys, Oliver Preston and Ash Plum, who are destined to change her life forever. Filled with themes of friendship, love and self-acceptance, mixed with the pain of growing up and discovering things about herself she’s never known, Lionhead tells the gripping story of a thirteen-year-old girl becoming who she’s supposed to be while finding a place where she truly belongs.

The Serenity Compound
When Alva Martin is sent to a training camp with her two best friends, a violent plane crash leaves them stranded in an entirely new world. Previously free of any form of sexism or oppression, she feels the difference right away in Shiloh, where a rough man named Alexander runs The Serenity Compound. At the strange school for teens, Alexander promises to let them stay until help can arrive. After only a few hours, Alva begins to feel how oppressive and unsettling their temporary home is. She learns that they believe in “The Culling”, a fancy way of saying that the world will end in two weeks due to a destructive race of aliens. Alexander believes it is his job to rebuild the world in a better way, along with the help of his best student. The gifted teen, Barnabas, begins to view Alva as his saving grace and enlists her in his attempt to break free.

“A thrilling ride of desire, doubt, hope, and uncertainty where faith is tested and the truth isn't what it seems.”

In her debut novel, author Krista Wagner introduces us to somewhat introverted, twenty-two year old Raylee Johnson, a girl who is bored with her small town life and feels that it is going nowhere in particular. When her high school crush, Billy, returns to town, she finds a small measure of confidence, but when her parents—the local pastor and his wife—are killed in a car accident, Raylee turns bitter. 

Finding comfort in her relationship with Billy, Raylee unexpectedly faces a world shrouded by disconcerting events when her high school nemesis, Crystal, shows up. Soon, Raylee finds herself surrounded by lies and more death and her attempts to uncover the truth all point to one fact…the truth is never what it seems.

Though the novel is new adult, its focus on tragedy, loss, and faith will strike a chord with thriller readers of all ages and places, for Intent shows us that no matter the size of the town or the boring life of its inhabitants, no one is safe from deception, and even murder.

Tell us a little about yourself and your background

My name is Zoe Lambros, I’m Greek and an artist. I used to live in Larissa, Greece but I wanted to see what was beyond Mount Ossa. Mount Ossa is a highest mountain in Larissa and I had always wanted to see what was past it. Too bad the Germans were in my way but the war ended and I did get to see what was past the mountain.

I was born in Larissa on October 26, 1928 to Helena and Nicholas Lambros. I had three brothers: Mihali, Thieri and Theodore. They were killed in the war with the Italians in 1940 on the Albanian border. My papa died in 1941 trying to take two Australian soldiers across the gorge to re-join their comrades but they never made it. Mama was killed by Major Hans Muller in retaliation for the Resistance killing his soldiers. I was in the Greek Resistance.

Project Recruitment

The Telen know the war with the Palesei will come. In their need to solve their most important problem, they invite human men to participate in an outstanding project. Sidarra is one of them. He falls in love with a Telen and in the hands of kidnappers. Amid war, uproar and rejection, they both have to prove if their love withstands the odds.


Context: Oleyni takes care of Sidarra during his first hours within his new abode. Everything is strange to him and the sudden interest of the whole family in him is quite unusual, yet not in a bad way...

“I think a darker blue suits you well.” Oleyni pulled out a pullover and pants and a warm undershirt. “It might get a little too cold for you in the evening. Better wear something warm.”

“Thanks. And where—”

“Oh, washing! Yes. Come.” She showed him the adjacent room. If Sidarra had expected faucets or anything recognizable, he was disappointed. “If you drop your clothes and stand here, the water will swirl around you. Shall I show you, or do you just want to try?”

“I’ll give it a try.”

“Fine.” Oleyni folded her hands in front of her lap and watched him, waiting.

“You want to stay?”

“Do you mind? You fainted some minutes ago, and the warm water might affect your circulation again. It could be that you need help, right?” Her eyes were wide open, portraying innocent ideas.
Sidarra smiled helplessly. “You mean, you are here to lend a hand?”

“There might be spots you can’t reach, don’t you think?”
His smile blossomed to a laugh that they shared. “You are right.” He shed his shoes, pants and jacket, revealing the net around his torso. “I might need help. This is all too strange for my taste.”
“You will get used to it.” Oleyni shrugged. “I guess I would feel the same if I was in your place. Your village seems to be strange, as well. You live in huts, I heard.”

He frowned as he approached the area where he assumed the water would flow. “What do you know about Ethisan?”

“That is your village? Well, I know that the continent is less fertile than ours. You drill wells for water and most parts of the continent are hard on the people. The majority consists of farmers and herders, some teachers, too. Temperatures are of modest warmth. It does not get cold, so you don’t know snow. There is just one developing city, with companies prospering from selling machines and ground transportation vehicles as well as many different tools. Trade markets have just recently begun to stretch to foreign countries in the north. Did I forget something?”

Water poured over Sidarra’s head and shoulders. It was warm and very pleasant, washing away sweat and dust. He closed his eyes and let Oleyni’s voice become the background of the pouring water. Warm hands massaged his shoulders, gently groped through the net on his back and went on with his buttocks. He pressed both hands against the wall and enjoyed the attention, moaning. When Oleyni was done down to his feet, she used soap to wash his hair, standing on tiptoe to reach his forehead.

Sidarra was so content he woke from a dream when she slapped his butt. “I guess if you get any cleaner, you’ll be translucent.”
He turned and the water stopped. Wiping his eyes, he made a step to where she waited with a big and very soft towel. “Thank you. That was very kind of you.”

“Your muscles felt like thick roots. Is it better now?”

“Much better.” He dried his hair and body. “How did you know?”

 She pursed her lips and the sparkle in her eyes revealed her mischief. Hands folded behind her body, she turned her shoulders from left to right. “Female intuition.”

Interview with Ann Raina

How long does it take you to write a book?
Usually, I need about three months for a novel. It depends on how much time I have and the length of the story. Some plots are easy to write and when it comes to some scenes, my fingers fly over the keyboard, but, of course, there are times when the inner muse does not work.

Do you have a specific writing style?
I read a lot and try to find out how great authors catch the interest of the audience. Some can describe scenery very well, some catch the emotions of the main characters so that the reader gets inside their heads. I always hope that my descriptions are sufficient to give the reader insight without taking away his own imagination.

Who designed the covers of your books?
eXtasy Books has very talented artist who create the covers.

How did you choose the genre you write in?
Science Fiction grants me the opportunity to create own worlds with different rules, surroundings, settings. However, I also write contemporary romance and some years ago, I wrote a historical romance novel. It was fun to research the facts.

Do you have plans for a new book?  
A science fiction / erotic romance is a work in progress, but will not be finished soon since the plot needs some polishing before the writing can go on. My latest novel Kisses and Chains will be published by eXtasy Books in February, 2015.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
There’s always the chance that when you re-read the book you find scenes you would re-write, be more specific, be funnier or leave some sentences out. So, yes, there would be changes, I’m sure of that.

If you gave one of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
Some main characters would complain that they got pushed in the background within two or more chapters because the side characters get more attention. It’s always like that – I start the book with a clear concept, but then the additional characters develop and I can’t ignore them.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your book(s)?
Funny moments cannot be created, they have to happen. A joke is only funny if it comes out spontaneously. I like to have elements to laugh about, but will never force them.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Readers write to me that they like my books. Some want more heart-thrilling stories, some appreciate that I leave the reader room for their imagination.

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I would appreciate even more reactions. It’s nice to see the sales number, but it would make my day if more readers told me their opinion.

We Need Strong Female Characters by Alexi Lawless
I’ve always been a fan of Anne Rice’s heroines. Whether it was Merrick, of the Mayfair witches or Lisa, the whip-wielding dominatrix of Exit to Eden, I liked that her female leads have distinct personalities, their own individual agendas and motivations and while they were flawed characters or had clear issues to work through, they were often smart, self-reliant and gutsy.

From more recent work, I thoroughly enjoyed Olivia Kaspen’s character in Tarryn Fisher’s The Opportunist and Thief. She slices like a knife but still manages to be so vulnerable, it’s easy to relate to her, even if when you’re horrified by her decisions.  So when I was developing my lead female character, I wanted to emulate that kind of strength.

Writing strong female characters
To create Samantha, I took what I liked most about male leads in some of my favorite stories and turned the whole thing on its head. I started thinking, “What if James Bond were a woman? What if she was the head of the multinational corporation? What if she led a team of commandos from all over the world-what would that be like?”

And as I considered all the possibilities, she became crystal clear in my mind. I saw a modern Pallas Athena with true grit, style and the kind of savvy we admire but rarely see in female characters in a romance genre. Samantha’s no wilting flower, and she doesn’t want for much, so that makes for an intriguing question--what kind of man can get a woman like that? And would she even let him?
Creating a book where strong female characters can thrive

To create the kind of book that would allow a strong female lead, I had to get over my preconceived notions of what the book “should” be and let it develop. That was and is the most difficult thing about writing for me, because I came from a life of extreme organization and process-orientation in corporate. I was paid to strategize and keep people on task. It’s hard to step away from years of practice and my magnified Type-A personality to let creativity do what it does- weave, turn and flow. But the truth is, is, the more I let the story happen, the better it got, the easier it was for Samantha to become who she was supposed to be. That’s not to say I took my eye off the ball, but sometimes, better to let it bounce than to keep it tightly gripped, you know?

Yesterday’s Daughter is full of suspense and surprises as the plot develops. It holds a mirror to contemporary society so we can consider our feelings about people who seem different from us, the assumptions we may make about other groups, and the consequences of those assumptions. Yesterday’s Daughter is an emotionally laden paranormal vampire romance novel woven with layers of betrayal, love and loss. Grace Stone, who later learns her true identity is Sapphira, is a loner who survives abuse in the foster care system after being abandoned as a child. A brilliant student, she escapes from her brutal foster parents as a teenager and creates a life for herself. But, her life is little more than existence; plagued with questions about what she really is, a family that she has never known and the never-ending need to keep her differences hidden. She is alone and lonely, believing it will always remain so until Malachi appears in her life. Malachi, a Guardian of the vampire communities, has searched for his life mate, Sapphira, for decades. He refuses to cease searching for Sapphira even though she is believed dead by all. Conflict arises over the decades between Malachi and his family because of his refusals to accept another mate. But his very soul drives him on to continue his search, knowing that he could not exist if Sapphira were not in the world, somewhere.
