“Sinners of Water & Fire” – New Release From Bestselling Author Charity Parkerson




Their love was legendary, cursed, and forbidden.
The fates conspired to keep them apart, but destiny will bring them together again…
When one of their own becomes the target of a demon bent on revenge, the Society will do anything to keep her safe, including stealing a God from the Heavens.
Heru, son of Geb, once sold his soul to forget her, and now he’ll give anything to keep her safe.
Gods and Demons collide in the final installment of Charity Parkerson’s award-winning “Sinners” series.



“I dreamed about you last night.” Heat flooded her face at the confession. She knew it must be the shade of a strawberry, but she lifted her eyes to his, holding his stare steadily, as if daring him to mock her words. For a moment, she could have sworn a look of triumph passed over his face, but it was gone as quickly as it appeared.

“What was the dream about?”

Marissa had thought that it was impossible to be any more embarrassed than she already was, but at his question, she discovered a whole new level of humiliation.

“Um,” she stuttered before admitting, “I don’t want to tell you.”

“Oh,” he crowed. “It was that kind of dream, was it?” While his eyes were shining with mirth, her face was on fire, and she really wanted kick him.

Shut up,” she hissed.

“Ever as you command,” he said, but she could still hear the laughter in his voice.

Fanning her face, Marissa practically danced in place in her discomfort.

“Are you having some sort of fit?” Adriana, Marissa’s mom, asked, slicing through her mortification.

Marissa had not heard her approach and she shot a nervous glimpse at the tree line to find Harold gone.

“I was attempting a spell.” Marissa answered Adriana’s question absently while searching for any sign that Harold was still hanging around. When her mom remained silent, Marissa glanced over to find her watching her closely, and she pasted a fake smile on her face in order to ease her mother’s obvious concern.

“Okay,” Adriana said, drawing out the word and sounding as if she didn’t believe her, which was a spot-on observation, since Marissa was lying.

Amazon Removes Tags From Kindle Book Pages

Just a quick heads up for all the indie, self-published writers out there who publish on Kindle – Amazon made an overhaul of Kindle book pages and Tags have disappeared.


Whether this is permanent or not, remains to be seen. This is Amazon, after all, they keep changing things constantly. Most of the time we do not even notice these changes. This time, however, it’s very noticeable – the Tags are gone, a few other things seem to be reshuffled slightly around the pages.

To those who advocated using Tags for better visibility in Amazon search, it looks like that now they will have to rely on the old-fashioned keyword loading in the book description and other parts of the page.

How would the absence of Tags affect search visibility and the book rankings? Hard to say right now. I would venture a guess that there would be only a few authors who’d notice the difference. For the majority of indies who publish on Kindle, this should not make any difference at all – more than 95% of the books on Amazon are not being seen by readers too often. Having Tags or not will not change that.


I suppose the “Like & Tag” game we writers are so fond of, is now “Like” only.
