Braaaainssss!

We are so excited to announce our newest romance, Love In The Time of The Dead, by Tera Shanley. In fact we are so excited, we are giving a copy away, along with an AWESOME Zombie Survival Kit!!! Have you seen the scary-cool cover?!?!

You will learn more about that creepy zombie on the cover, and many more, on October 22nd! Just in time for Halloween!

Synopsis:
Laney Landry has been fighting Deads alongside her brother and friends for three years. But she has a secret. She's immune to Dead bites and has to find the right people to trust with the information. Her team rallies around her to find a doctor who can extract a vaccine from Laney which could fight the virus that ended the world.

Sean Daniels leads a colony that provides her team with much needed shelter and supplies. He is obviously interested in Laney. The question is whether he's only intrigued by her as a source for the possible vaccine, or for something more. Tests for the cure might push her body beyond what it can endure, and just as she faces a ghost from her past, her longtime teammate Derek Mitchell hints at an interest in more than just her Dead slaying abilities.

Two honorable and alluring men - one colossal decision to make. Despite historically bad taste in men, can she rise above the chaos of the apocalypse and choose the one who deserves her heart? The right choice could mean the difference between surviving...and living.



Add Love In The Time of The Dead to your TBR and WIN an ebook or:

it all fits into the Zombie Survival Kit lunchbox :)

Sexy Surfer Xavier Woos Shy Plus Sized Co-Ed Tamera in Romancing the Bookworm by Kate Evangelista, Out Today!

New Sweet and Sexy Summer Novel Joins Omnific's New Adult Line! 


We are proud to have Romancing the Bookworm by Kate Evangelista as our newest addition to our hot New Adult titles. With sexy college students breaking out of their comfort zone for just one week on spring break, Romancing the Bookworm will heat up your summer! You can find all of Omnific's titles, including our New Adult line, at www.omnificpublishing.com.

Synopsis:

Sometimes, even the best-laid plans can unravel.

It's spring break, and Tamara Winters would rather stay on campus and read romance novels than flaunt her size-fourteen body on a beach. But her best friend, Ronni, has other ideas. Against her wishes, Tamara is whisked away to picturesque Maverick Bay, where she's wrangled into waiting tables with Ronni at the Shore Shack for its busy week leading to Maverick's Surf Invitational. There she meets fellow schoolmate Xavier Solomon, the Invitational's organizer and campus womanizer by reputation. From the moment Tamara sees him emerging from the waves like a hero in of one of her romance novels, all she wants to do is run away from the feelings he inspires in her.

Little does she know Xavier has been watching her for weeks now. In fact, after failed attempts at asking her out on campus, he's concocted a crazy plan: fabricating romantic situations straight out of her favorite books. Xavier quickly realizes that if Tamara gets a whiff of his designs, he might as well spell CREEPER across his forehead. Yet as they grow closer, he's convinced it's a risk worth taking. What he hasn't planned on, of course, is his drug-addicted, alcoholic stepbrother, who decides to join the fun and put a wrench in Xavier’s scheme.

Spring break is proving hotter than Tamara expected. Will her romance novels be able to compete?


Check out the book trailer! So fun!


About Kate Evangelista

When Kate Evangelista was told she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing: entered medical school. After realizing she wasn't going to be the next Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department of her university and never looked back. Today, she is in possession of a piece of paper that says to the world she owns a Literature degree. To make matters worse, she took Master's courses in creative writing. In the end, she realized to be a writer, none of what she had mattered. What really mattered? Writing. Plain and simple, honest to God, sitting in front of her computer, writing.

New Release - Sleepers Awake

We have a new release! And it's a great one!




Overeducated and underemployed, Ivy League graduate Agnes Larch spends every day steeped in failure and sleeps every night without dreaming...that is, until the unexpected death of Ian Millbrook, the boy she's silently loved her whole life. Grieving and forced to confront her long-buried feelings for Ian, Agnes undergoes an arduous physical and spiritual journey to unearth her past and untangle her future. She walks in two worlds, the waking and the dreaming, each world filled with secrets, mysteries, and maybe, if she believes enough, miracles.

We are so excited about Eden Barber's debut novel, Sleepers, Awake. It's a beautiful moving story that we know our readers will fall in love with. 

We were lucky enough to have Eden take a few minutes and answer some of our crazy questions



Omnific: Sleepers Awake is your first novel, tell us about what inspired you to write and write this book in general.

Eden: It was an extremely personal exercise in coping with a friend’s unexpected death. Writing Sleepers was my way of grieving. Writing has always been appealing to me because it’s a way to transform pain and trauma into something useful. And if someone else reads what I’ve fashioned from my hurt and feels something or finds some solace, then that is a kind of miracle of being human, to be able to take something bad and make it beautiful, to change it into something that gives comfort. It kind of blows my mind, really, that writing and catharsis exist, and that mortals are capable of it. I remember a writing professor telling me that the more specifically one writes, the more it is only of one’s own experience, the more universal it becomes. So by writing for yourself, you end up writing for everyone.


Omnific: Can you share a little of your writing process with us? Are you a plotter or do you write as a scene hits?

Eden : I write in super productive bursts, and then I go fallow for about … a decade. I’m probably a one-hit wonder. I am Flock of Seagulls.
As for my actual process, I outline on post-its or scrap paper, and then write tidbits on my laptop. I edit as I go, moving things around, letting things sit, moving them some more, trying to find the rhythm or breath of a phrase.



Omnific: With summer upon us are you planning to escape somewhere? If you could go anywhere,  where would you LOVE to go on a vacation? And if you went, would you truly be on vacation or would you have a notebook with you to write when an idea strikes?

Eden: I would love to be somewhere quiet and air-conditioned, all by myself, maybe with a beach nearby. And wi-fi. My needs are pretty simple. I just want to sleep uninterrupted for about six hours, like, maybe once or twice in the next year. Since I’ve become a mom of a child who is not a fan, shall we say, of the sleep, all I think about is when, if ever, I’ll get a good night’s sleep again. If I had no other obligations but to sleep and write and eat, I’d be pretty happy.


Omnific: Since Omnific is all about the romance...what is your favorite romance scene in a book?

Eden: It’s not a romance scene, but for the mind games and intensity, nothing really beats that scene in Crime and Punishment when Raskolnikov forces Sonya to read the story of Lazarus to him.


Omnific: Now, if they made that into a movie who would you want cast opposite you? (Or if they have already made a movie, would you recast it?)

Eden: I don’t think of Raskolnikov as traditionally hot. I … have no idea. I’d like to be in a different movie, perhaps a rom-com with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Yes. I WISH FOR UNLIMITED WISHES!



Omnific: And the dreaded question after months of editing…do you have anything that you are working on next?

Eden: I have just scraps of a novel, remnants, really, that I’m hoping to find time to put together. I don’t have time to floss these days though, so I’m not sure when I will have time to write again. It’s not a romance, though. And I have an idea brewing for a YA novel, but again … it may end up existing only in my brain.


I know you want to know how to win a copy of Sleepers, Awake, right? Well there are two giveaways going on right now. First we have one at Goodreads, so go sign up for that one.

10 eBooks and a $25 gift card (B&N or Amazon, winner's choice) are up for grabs, too!  Rafflecopter allows for multiple entries every day for the duration of the promotion.  ENTER TO WIN!!

http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/2181971/


Purchase this title in Print, Nook or  Kindle 
formats. 
Thanks for taking the time to share with us, Eden. We know that the readers will all love Sleepers, Awake as much as we all did. Eden would love to hear from all of you! Here's where you can find her -
Still not convinced?  Check out the book trailer for Sleepers, Awake below...
