I am 25 years old and have been writing since my Sophomore year of high school (2005-2006). Writing is my biggest passion, and I enjoy it more than anything. I am a full-time college student in Criminal Justice and will have my Bachelor's Degree within the next few months. I also have my first novel released on Feb. 11th of this year, Wickedly Misunderstood. It is a fantasy driven novel based on 12 super human kids trying to find their place in the world. I have numerous other things in the work for this year that will be published soon too. That is me in a nut shell pretty much.

Bio:

Andy Peloquin: Lover of All Things Dark and Mysterious

I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist–words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I’m also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in the pages of fantasy novels.

Fantasy provides us with an escape, a way to forget about our mundane problems and step into worlds where anything is possible. It transcends age, gender, religion, race, or lifestyle–it is our way of believing what cannot be, delving into the unknowable, and discovering hidden truths about ourselves and our world in a brand new way. Fiction at its very best!

Reviews:

“Creative, gritty, and beautifully dark…fantasy addicts will love it!” — Peter Story, author of Things Grak Hates — http://peterjstory.com/

“The fantasy world has a compelling new antihero…the Hunter will terrify and captivate you.” – Eve A Floriste, author of Fresh Cut

“From the first words on the page this fantasy holds the reader spellbound even after the book is finished…his character is very well-defined even if his past is a mystery. Root for an assassin? Oh, yes, one must!” — Carol Conley, for InDTale Magazine

“Oh the carnage! Fantastic bloodthirsty carnage! The fight scenes in this book were fast-paced, detailed and thrilling. I love a good sword fight and there is plenty of that here.” — Ami L. Hart

“One could get lost in this novel for its twisting plots, seemingly endless imagination, dark yet irresistible characters, or the mind-numbing paradox of its simultaneously dark and romantic world. One could follow the long and winding road of the dusky, fierce protagonist and fight tooth and nail not to sympathize with him. One could dance in the dizzying, intricate circles of Peloquin’s neo-mythology, or even basque in the black sunlight of a well-crafted gothic novel that both entertains and enlightens.” — Jesse G. Christiansen

Book 2 Info

 

Book Blurb:

The Last Bucelarii (Book 2): Lament of the Fallen

The Hunter of Voramis is no more.

Alone with the bloodthirsty voices in his head, fleeing the pain of loss, he has one objective: travel north to find Her, the mystery woman who plagues his dreams and haunts his memories.

When he stumbles upon a bandit attack, something within urges him to help. His actions set him at odds with the warrior priests commanded to hunt down the Bucelarii.

Left for dead, the Hunter must travel to Malandria to recover his stolen birthright. There, he is inexorably drawn into direct conflict with the Order of Midas, the faceless, nameless group of magicians that holds the city in a grip of terror. All while struggling to silence the ever-louder voice in his mind that drives him to kill.

From feared assassin to wretched outcast, the Hunter’s journey leads him to truths about his forgotten past and the Abiarazi he has pledged to hunt. His discoveries will shed light on who he really is…what he really is.

Fans of Joe Abercrombie, Brandon Sanderson, and Brent Weeks will love the Hunter…

Hugs and Kisses Anthology Coming Soon

Last year I wrote a short story called “Blind Love” for Hugs and Kisses and today the authors received our promos. So I wanted to share all of the glorious pictures here, as well as our event that will be coming up next month. As our release grows closer I’ll post updates and keep everyone informed. But for now, here’s a sample of what’s to come.

Enjoy!

Absent Book Review

Absent by Katie Williams is truly an amazing read and one that left me yearning to learn what happened next. My heart ached for Paige, Brooke, and Evan as they had to watch everything continue without them. Of course we know the world moves on without us after we pass on, but no one wants to be stuck watching the world move on without them. No one wants to sit and watch their friends mourn over them, or watch as rumors fly about how they died. No one wants to sit in the same place that they died and think about how they could have done things differently, but for Paige, Brooke, and Evan, they’re doomed to that life.

Or at least that’s what Evan makes them believe when they first die. Paige gets antsy with the situation and does something about it. And I find a lot of myself in Paige, and I enjoy novels where I connect with the main characters. If I was in Paige’s shoes I would have done the same thing. I would have traveled those halls and tried to change everyone’s perspective about my death. I would have tried so hard to change everything, but only to find out the same thing she finds in the end- which I won’t say because I don’t want to spoil the novel. Though there are a few things I would have done differently had I been Paige while she was living- for starters I would have avoided Lucas like he was the plague. But if Paige would have done that the story wouldn’t have transpired the way it did.

I’m curious to know if anything happens next though. I feel a little left hanging. Like there’s more to the story of Paige, Brooke, and Evan. Do they move on into the afterlife? Or is this the afterlife? So there are a few questions that are left unanswered, but unanswered questions are ok because the story was amazing and will definitely lead me to read more of this author’s novels in the future.

Migraines Are no Fun

Suffering from a migraine can render you useless for the entire day. It can keep you in bed with something covering your eyes and ears to block out all light and sound. They prevent you from doing any and all daily activities because you can’t function because everything feels like it’s going to make your head explode. And if that’s not bad enough some migraines come with nausea and others come with the room spinning in circles.

And for a person that suffers from chronic migraines I know these pains all too well. Some months I can go a week a week and not have a migraine, but the next I have one every other day. Or the worse migraines that last for several days that require a trip to the ER because there’s nothing I can do to get rid of them, and I feel like my head is on the verge of exploding.

Now a headache you can typically take a pain reliever and it’ll clear up in an hour or two, or it’s typically bearable. But a migraine isn’t that simple. Sometimes a pain reliever won’t do the trick, and you have to use other methods to help the pain reliever actually work. Here’s a list of things I do in conjunction with taking a pain reliever to help get rid of a migraine.

Lavender Eye Pillow/Unscented Eye Pillow-

This eye pillow contains lavender buds that produce a lavender scent that a both calming and healing that helps relieve the pressure of a migraine. It doesn’t get rid of the migraine completely on it’s own, but it helps. There is also an unscented version of this eye pillow as well. What you do is heat it up in the microwave for 15 seconds and place on your forehead. The heat helps relieve the pain, much like that of a heating pad. It also applies a nice pressure to the forehead and temples, which I think is what helps in conjunction with the heat, because it keeps my head from feeling like it’s about to explode because something is holding it in place.

Lavender Eye Pillow

Unscented Eye Pillow

Migraine Relief Spray-

This spray contains essential oils that help with the relief of migraines. It contains magnesium oil which stimulates blood flow to reduce spasms, lavender to relieve tension headaches and reduce stress, sweet marjoram to ease the nervous system, peppermint to calm and rejuvenate the senses, and rosemary and basil to reduce pain and mental fatigue. You spray it on your forehead and the back of your neck and just relax, it also helps with anxiety.

Migraine Relief Spray

Peppermint Essential Oil-

This is one of the first things I started using with to help relieve migraines. And I find that it works well the majority of the time. I rub it in the middle of my forehead, then temples, and lastly all over my forehead. I do it this way so I know the whole area is covered. My forehead will start to tingle a little, much like when you use IcyHot for muscle aches, and usually I’ll lie down in the dark and cover my eyes and allow it to work before doing anything.

Peppermint Oil

Tiger Balm-

I use this a lot like I use the peppermint oil, I rub it on the center of my forehead, then my temples and lastly all over my forehead to ensure the whole area is covered. It also works much in the same way as the peppermint oil. However, I notice quicker relief with the Tiger Balm and I don’t have to lie down in order for it to really help. I keep this one in my drawer at work, just in case a nasty migraine springs on while I’m at work. It does have a reddish tint but I’ve never noticed it turning my forehead red, and it does have a strong scent as well, I think it smells like gingerbread so I don’t mind the smell since it helps.

Tiger Balm

These are a few things that help me when I have a migraine that just won’t go away. Of course if you have one that lasts for several days, please go see your doctor as it could be signs of something worse. Migraines are nothing to play around with and they should be treated properly. They aren’t a simple headache that you can just take something and get rid of, they really do put you out of commission. I hope some of the things I use may provide some relief to others that suffer from migraines out there and maybe this helps someone to know they aren’t alone in feeling like their head is going to explode every now and again when they have a migraine.

Memories are precious, and for Sian Bennett, they are fleeting. On 22 February 2011, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocks Christchurch, New Zealand. Sian was there, along with her husband and baby son. What happened that day is a mystery; all she remembers is waking up in hospital five months later, alone.

Two long years pass, and the memories continue to disappear into the black hole that was opened up the day of the quake. Life becomes a perilous journey lived on a tightrope that stretches between the past and the present. Retreating to a lakeside cottage in Rotorua, she shies away from a world she no longer understands.

When Luke Lancaster moves into the derelict cottage beyond the trees, he respects his reclusive neighbour’s silent plea for privacy. Now half a world away from his native North Carolina, he has seen war, misery and chaos. Along with his dog, Geezer, he lives with a few ghosts of his own.

What begins as a fragile friendship leads to a much deeper connection, in which truth, lies, love and pain are intimately bound. Even in paradise, shadows lurk.

A slow-burning tale of loss and love, stoked in the flames of fate and superstition, it is ignited by the power of hope.
