Each year, a group of fantastic authors - The Authors of Main Street - put together a Christmas anthology, or virtual box set, filled with heartwarming, wholesome novellas. The number of participants vary (this year, it's NINE!), but the stories are always of the sort to fill your heart with warm and fuzzies, just in time for the start of the holiday season.
Each year... there is a theme. This year, it's BABIES! Awwww... I'm already melting!
Who doesn't love an inspiring story about Christmas with the pitter-patter of little feet? (Or hooves, for that matter: one of our babies is a newborn foal!)
What makes these ladies special is the combining of their talents into a no-holds-barred awww-fest with just the right amount of spice to keep your toes warm. The novellas are all on the sweet side, and readers who enjoy a nice, clean read won't have to slam any bedroom doors.
Romance is about love, after all. While IAP has absolutely nothing against the wild and... shall we say, visual?... aspects of an erotica novel, or even a mainstream romance, we appreciate the subtlety and nuance of a well-crafted love story without all the fringe.
If that's your cup of tea, then we highly recommended pouring yourself a cup of CHRISTMAS BABIES ON MAIN STREET this holiday season.
Christmas Babies on Main Street is available NOW for pre-order on Amazon with novellas from:
Feel like getting a head start? Last year's volume, CHRISTMAS AT THE INN ON MAIN STREET, is still available! Nearly a year in the Top 100 Bestsellers List for Holiday reading!

Amazing literature makes us think. It makes us feel. Whether we're feeling good or frightened or agitated or shocked, if a book can make us feel something, the author has done her job.
PT Denys worked overtime on The Cycle.
The Cycle is the second book in a series, and while you don't have to read the first book, Violence Begets, to be moved by The Cycle, we highly recommend it. (Mostly because the first book is just as awesome.)
Kevin and Rick Kennedy are the kind of together-forever couple that we all want to be part of. But they didn't start out that way, and their journey through violence to the Elysion fields of true love was marked by pain, loss, fear, loathing, and ultimately redemption. See all those feelings there? And that's just me telling you a little bit about the story. PT Denys walks you through each and every one of those emotions and experiences with a collection of words that will make you laugh, cry, beg, struggle, and ultimately believe in true love all over again.
It isn't very often that we find a book that is inherently capable of bringing forth those deep-rooted emotions. We are so incredibly excited that we can bring this one to you.
The Cycle is available right now for pre-order. You can get your copy here with your Amazon account. And while you're there, we encourage you to pick up Violence Begets, too. You won't regret it.
One of the things we love about E. Ayers, in addition to her story-telling ability, is the way she creates worlds that are both historically accurate and entertaining. It's like chomping at the bit to get to a history class you just love because it doesn't feel like a class at all. You are immersed in the way things used to be, regardless of whether it's politically correct or "old-fashioned."
So many historicals today, particularly in the romance genre, are gentrified and modernized to appeal to the escapism of the genre itself. Attention is paid to clothing and romance, but not so much to the attitude of the people who lived in those times, whatever times that may be.
When we read an E. Ayers historical, such as her newest upcoming release, A Rancher's Request, we find ourselves surrounded by the way things really were. One character in A Rancher's Request who stuck out in our minds as we reviewed this submission, was an old black man who had been born a slave, and who still served the community in which he lived. If you needed an odd job done, he was there for you. If you needed a favor, he was there for you. And he did so with a dignity that belied his station. One might think that would be the very gentrification we were just talking about, but this guy is simply behaving in the way he needed to in order to survive in the post-Civil-War/Reconstruction era of the South. Keep your head down. Don't make waves.
He is countered with another character who is of mixed race and was raised with certain benefits because of his white father. This character went to school, both grammar and secondary, and even college, and his entire demeanor is of the more modern philosophy. The juxtaposition of these two characters, blithely written into the scenery and living on the fringe of the main action, is just one of the reasons we love a great E. Ayers historical novel.
We're pleased as punch to offer A Rancher's Woman for pre-order at Indie Artist Press, and we look forward to the official launch in the next couple of weeks. For only 99 cents for a limited time, you can reserve your copy today by clicking here.
Gorgons and basilisks and dwarves! Oh, my!
At long last, Enya finally gets what she wants and returns home with her brothers. But no sooner do they arrive before there is trouble yet again. The Black Matron is back with a vengeance, hell bent on getting the lamp for Thero. They are only protected for so long by Nole’s wish, but that protection might not last for as long as they would like it to.
Despite their best efforts, even their best laid plans can go awry. Even so, Enya never expects to end up where she does, landing herself in hot water when she ends up in the middle of a quarrel she never knew existed, let alone thought she would be involved with.
As they fight their way back to each other, they tread the path heading straight for the Black Matron. Desperate times cause Xorphiul to make a wish with far-reaching and unexpected consequences, far beyond anything any of them could imagine even in their wildest and most twisted of dreams.
Sometimes beasts are friendly and friends are beastly, and the question becomes a difficult one: who are the real monsters? Who is the wolf hiding amongst the sheep?

You know, I have a feeling that there may be a few people in the world who haven't heard of Star Wars, and there may be a few people who have heard of it but don't like it.
And then there's the rest of the world! Few movie franchises have the love and respect of fans across genres like Star Wars, especially the original trilogy! That's why I'm looking forward to Rogue One so much! It takes place during the time I'm familiar with the story. I know, I know... die hard fans were just as enamored with episodes 1, 2, and 3 as they were with 4, 5, and 6.
Nope. Not me. I am a "Skywalker Twins" fan, through and through. So I'm looking forward to checking out the new flick, not because the twins show up (I know they don't), but because somewhere out there, in that vastness of space, Luke is complaining to his Aunt and Uncle that he someday wants to get off Tatooine and join the rebellion. Ahhhh... nostalgia!
On that note...
We have a new pre-order up and waiting for you!
Becca Bates has written a parody of the original Star Wars franchise (those middle episodes from the 70s and 80s) and placed it in a fantasy setting. Satyr Wars is a comical and entertaining romp through a world where magic and myth join hands, all wrapped up in a big Star Wars bow.
How about you? Are you a Star Wars nut? Or do you find the whole think nutty?
