Book Description:


"I am a new woman. A new creature. I am myself, and yet so different."


Magic and destiny collide in Christian A. Brown's breathtaking debut novel, Feast of Fates.


Together known as the Sisters Three, Eean, the hand of fate, Elemech, the reader of fate, and Ealasyd, the spinner of fate, foresee a war between the Immortal Kings--and only one girl who can stop it.


Morigan lives a quiet life as the handmaiden to a fatherly old sorcerer named Thackery. But when she crosses paths with Caenith, a not wholly mortal man, her world changes forever. Their meeting sparks long buried magical powers deep within Morigan. As she attempts to understand her newfound abilities, unbidden visions begin to plague her--visions that show a devastating madness descending on one of the Immortal Kings who rules the land.


With Morigan growing more powerful each day, the leaders of the realm soon realize that this young woman could hold the key to their destruction. Suddenly, Morigan finds herself beset by enemies, and she must master her mysterious gifts if she is to survive.


Available at Amazon and Createspace


Excerpt from Chapter 2


It was quite a jog from King’s Crown to Fates Row, the modest, middle-class district where Caenith lived on the outskirts of the Faire of Fates, and Morigan took an earthbound carriage for part of the trip. She wasn’t a spendthrift and saved almost all of what she worked for, as Mifanwae had taught, but the urge to see the smith again was a weight as heavy as stone, drawing her in his direction. Her unburdening to Thule and his approval emboldened her further, for he was a father and friend—the only one she had, lonely as that might seem—and his opinions were valued. Never did she forget the cautious side of his encouragement, however, of his unusual but apt warnings of a wolf. The more she dwelled on the idea, the more she found that a wolf was a fitting match for Caenith’s character: wild, noble, and dangerous.
Once settled with her fare, she was deposited amid squat white houses and tall white shops, with roofs that glittered in the early evening light and streets filled with weary working folk headed home for the day or into noisy taverns, of which more than a few were around. Caenith’s house, she remembered, was in quieter environs a few blocks ahead. She stayed off the road and along the path, asking strangers to pardon her as she strode at a hastened pace.
Slow down. Get a hold of your wits or lose your knickers, like Thule said. I’m paraphrasing, but still, she warned herself. She didn’t know much about men. She had kissed a few, groped some of the hardness that they kept behind their trousers, but wasn’t impressed by much of it. In recent years, she had given up on courtship entirely, for men weren’t interested in courtship with handmaidens living in less respectable neighborhoods, even though she was sure that they had other uses in mind for her. Perhaps that was what intrigued her about Caenith so much, his biding patience or surety. She knew that he desired her in a ravenous way, and yet she felt none of the frantic insistence that her other suitors had expressed toward her. None of that childlike need.
You say that, but let’s see how he behaves tonight. This whole thing is silly. You’re acting as if you know this man when you spent maybe an hourglass with him. Therein was the rub: that for a stranger, it seemed as if she knew him so intimately. Or felt as if she grasped the most fundamental aspects of him: honor, bestial pride, and the beauty and destruction of a wild rapid. All that remained was to mine out the details. Why do I trust you? Of all the men I have met, only Thule has earned that right through burying my mother’s body with me, through sheltering me when I was alone. What right have you to command my trust as you do, Caenith? What right?
She proceeded down the lane with a fury in her step, her riding cloak billowing, her dark skirt sweeping the ground like a black ghost. She was a startling vision to those who saw her, and they moved out of her way as if she was a mad but exquisite queen. A few roughnecks, red in the cheeks and leering from a tavern porch, did not heed her stormy expression and whistled at her from their chairs. Pigs! she hissed with such righteous indignation that the fools pouted into their ales, feeling as if the Everfair Queen herself had shamed them. Night was hungry for the day, and sterling lamplights, their starry magik trapped in hanging glass spheres, were winking on alongside the lane. She arrived at Caenith’s run-down property even angrier from the catcalls, stomped up the stairs, and went to knock on the door. It was wrenched open before her knuckles touched the wood. There was the smith.
Some civility had found its way into his comportment this evening, though he wore it awkwardly, like an animal stuffed into clothing, and haphazardly, as if he had just dressed himself and not with great success. His highwayman’s shirt was a mess: its laces loose, a sleeve up, the other down, and the hem half tucked into trousers. The boots she recalled from yesterday. He wore a plain ebony ribbon in his hair, which was pulled back from his face. While he had certainly made the effort to be more trimmed than yesterday, she could only call him shorn, not shaved—she didn’t think he could ever be stripped to less than stubble. Still, he was no less disarming or enticing with his cologne of steel, sweat, and the deeper aromas of woods and silky fur, and what portions of his sinewy strength burst against his clothing took the remainder of her focus. She found herself completely drained of her anger and fumbling for words.
“I…I am sorry. You seem as if you are dressed and on your way out.”
Caenith stared but did not speak. Distantly and with sorrow, he remembered the Daughters of the Moon, victims of the New Age, with their milky skin and coats of nettles, raven feathers and black leaves: garments with haunting similarities to the lacy bodice and sweeping train that Morigan wore. She was as magikal as these phantoms of the past, but paler and prettier still, and her bust and cheeks were flushed from rushing. He could taste the salty-sweet sweat of her on his palate and hear the pounding of her blood as a rousing tribal drum in his ears.
“I was waiting for you,” he said.
Morigan looked around suspiciously. “You…you were?”
“I—” Smelled you down the street and hurried to make myself presentable. “I felt that you would return today, that the winds would bear your sweetness my way, and I see that Geadhain has granted my wish.”
“I see. How very…strange,” replied Morigan.
Caenith welcomed her with a grin; his canines were unusually long, they glimmered in the lamplight. “Cups! I have been working on cups! Come inside, dear fawn.”
Cups? And there’s that “fawn” talk again. I think he’s some manner of a lunatic, thought Morigan, and against what little sense prevailed in the company of this man, she went into Caenith’s shop. Inside was brighter than she remembered, and small lamps had been lit in vases on the floor. She had to blink to understand them, these twining metal flowers, their petals opened and stigmas made of flame. She stopped to admire one, seeing the wick inside the fire, amazed that this was not magik, but more of the smith’s work, impossibly detailed and manufactured by enormous fingers.
“Resilience and beauty,” said Caenith, breathing over her neck. “The strength of steel and the beauty—and power—of fire. I was inspired to create them this morning. The metal’s song was clear with how it was to be made. Do you like them?”
“Yes, they’re…lovely.”
“I agree,” muttered Caenith, and he placed a hand upon her back, leading her farther into his den. “Cups,” he promised, but said no more.

Four Great CDs Review and Bundle Pack Giveaway

I received complimentary copies of the following CD's from Mile High Productions.

Joseph Eid
Americana-Folk Singer/Songwriter Joseph Eid has announced the recent release of his first full studio album, Human. Recommended if you like the Avett Brothers and Ray Lamontagne, Eid has been garnering considerable buzz with his music, recently being named as one of the 100 Hottest Live Unsigned Artists of 2012 and 2013 by Music Connection Magazine.

The album’s title track "Human", displays the pastoral beauty, delicate guitar work, and intricate but relatable lyrics that have become Eid’s trademark. “Human” seamlessly blends sharp, melodic pop lyricism with traditional folk sensibilities evoking folk troubadours both past and present.

The album’s first single “Ready Now”, is propelled by a driving rhythm section , lush instrumentation and an instantly unforgettable hook. “Ready Now,” has surpassed over 20,000 views on YouTube and is the depiction of an animated version of Eid. The song tells a love story in which the man is confused about his beloved one. The storyline is lively presented by Eid’s gentle and narrative voice in the verse parts, and the passionate vocal harmony in the chorus increased the whole song’s intensity and meaning. The use of varied orchestra instruments also added a layer of dramatic effects to the song, giving it a more complicated and intriguing sensation.

Originally born in Liberia to Lebanese parents, Joseph Eid grew up in the suburbs of New York.  He was raised in a strict and traditional home where the arts were only supported as a hobby and never as a career.  During his college years, Eid studied psychology and pre-med but all the while, he was always dreaming about a potential career in music.  After his first semester at med school, the dream got too big to hold and Joseph made the bold choice of dropping out and moving to New York City to pursue music and follow his dream.  He joined a band, picked up a guitar, and the songs poured out like rain.  His journey led him to Los Angeles in 2007 where he started playing regularly at open mikes and showcases.  Shortly after, he began working with world-renowned guitarist/songwriter David Lamar, honing his songwriting at weekly showcases at the Stone Bar, leading the prolific singer/songwriter to write over 30 new songs as well as record his debut EP Cardiac Output.

Known as a dynamic solo performer, Joseph Eid has brought his cathartic one-man live show to many of Los Angeles’ premier music venues, including stints at Room 5 and El Cid.  He has held residencies at the following Hollywood venues:  The Stone Bar, Crane’s Hollywood Tavern, Room 5, and Bar Lubitsch.

Eid recently released a music video of “Something Real,” which is based on a personal experience that also happens to be universal with communication via technology and social media. A visually simple yet emotionally complex music video, “Something Real,” is meant as a commentary on our constant need to be plugged in and how this has changed the way we communicate as well as taken away the value and the weight of words and human connection.  This idea is demonstrated in the video as Eid sings to and tries to connect with lifeless, robotic people. The twist at the end of the video illustrates that no one is immune to the digital disease — including Eid.

Another piece of exciting news for the folk and country lovers is that Eid’s going to release a brand new video for the single “Hit me up” from the album “Human”. This particular song maintained his emotional and well-polished singing and song writing style, and at the same time experimented with country style guitar fill-ins. Every Eid’s video released so far, from the animated himself in ‘Ready now’ to the robotic crowd in ‘Something Real’, had shown an interesting, real-life related story and life lesson. This coming video of his would definitely be worth waiting for.

Cassandra's Review - With a voice that will keep you stimulated. Joseph's music is upbeat and classy. I really enjoyed listening to this CD.

Roxanna - Here With Me
The highly anticipated music video for Roxanna’s hit single, “Here With Me” is available now. The sultry love ballad is a true story stemming from her parents’ unceasing love and the prequel to her breakout single, “Unforgotten.” The song features Grammy award winning trumpeter, Chris Botti, and the video will star Soap heartthrob, James Scott as the leading man. This is the 2nd single off of Roxanna’s debut album, Exotica, a soulful testimony to the trials and tribulations of love, forgiveness, and healing.

“Here With Me,” is a narration of Roxanna’s parents’ relationship, in addition to her own experiences with falling in love. When they first met, Roxanna’s father presented her mother with rose and a beautiful poetry book. When her mother passed away, Roxanna inherited the poetry book and the first bookmarked page she opened was the song “Here With Me.” With a few alterations and the help of Chris Botti, this beautiful creation was born. Roxanna is thrilled to be sharing this meaningful project with the world, “I knew I wanted something classy and romantic and James Scott was the perfect fit. We then brought in director, Samuel Gonzales Jr. who was really able to bring life to my vision.”

“Here With Me” is releasing on the heels of her wildly successful 90 minute Public Television special, ROXANNA: EXOTICA LIVE, which premiered Saturday, November 15th in the Detroit metro area, Central and Western Canada. The segment was taped at the Cathedral-like venue, Vibiana, in Los Angeles and guest stars Jon Secada.

Her hope for people who watch the video is that they understand it is a narration of honest, true love.

About Roxanna:

From an early age, Iranian-born singer/songwriter Roxanna knew that music was a far-reaching instrument of strength and hope. Originally turning to music as an escape from childhood-strife, Roxanna’s ultimate musical journey was fueled by a quest for serenity, hope for healing, and overcoming love’s deepest heartbreaks.

Settling in Toronto in the 1980s, Roxanna enrolled at Winston Churchill Collegiate where the budding star’s passion for music deepened as she focused on music classes and joined choir. Following undergraduate school, Roxanna’s philanthropic personality led her to attend nursing school at Seneca College where she earned her RN degree.

Over the course of her nursing career, Roxanna’s life changing experiences with her patients, along with her unwavering passion for music, empowered Roxanna to seek more. “I knew my music could be useful in this world. Pursuing my dream as a singer was the happiest moment in my life,” she adds. At last, the Canadian-based sensation caught her big break after contacting legendary producer, Mark Portmann and performing Christina Aguilera’s “Lift Me Up.”

Solidifying and incessant bond, the sultry songstress has now teamed up with Portmann for her debut album, Exotica, on which she infuses the influences of pop royalty, like Aguilera, with a sensual Spanish-flare as heard by Julio Iglesias. Seeking to bring “passion back to contemporary music,” Roxanna’s aspiration to share music’s unquestioned power of healing, intertwined with her undaunted ability to sing from the heart prove to be a prevalent theme of passion and raw realness.

Exotica is highlighted by Roxanna’s hit Latin-infused single, “Unforgotten,” as well as love ballads “Close Your Eyes” and “Hello.” Eager to share her journey with the world, the flourishing songbird says, “I can’t wait to share my songs as a testament that time has a way of healing everything. When you find the strength to make a change, love and forgiveness and healing are around the corner.”

Confident that she has found her calling, Roxanna continues to captivate the hearts, bodies, and souls of industry megastars and everyday music-lovers alike. Whether it’s nurturing a broken heart or fostering empowerment, her music and her story remain a genuine testimony of truth.

Listen to the song "Hello"
Roxanna
Cassandra's review- With a super strong voice that will bless your ears, this artist had me relaxed and eager to hear every song.  The song Hello however is a cover type from a super famous artist and I would have preferred if she chose not to remake it as it is best as an original.  However at the same time it is nice to reintroduce the classics to new ears.
Bunny Sigler
(Los Angeles, CA): Living legend Walter "Bunny" Sigler continues to share songs that prove his passion for music goes well beyond his beloved soul songs. Bunny’s songwriting for tracks like Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up", Patti Labelle's "Somebody Loves You Baby", The Whispers' "Bingo", Jackie Moore's "Sweet Charlie Babe" and The O'Jays "Sunshine" are what put him on the musical map. Not only is Bunny skilled with the pen, but he is also a world-renowned singer bringing his warm, powerhouse vocals to the holiday season. His holiday album, When You're In Love At Christmas Time, showcases Sigler's musical gift to make any song jingle with a commanding soulful flare.

This soul-stirring album features twelve classic Christmas tracks like "Ave Maria", "White Christmas" and the single, "Little Drummer Boy" with a brand new remix premiering this month online. One of Bunny’s favorite holiday tunes, "Little Drummer Boy" showcases his laid-back and soulful sound. Bunny's rendition brings to mind an oversized chair, a roaring fire and eggnog in hand. Sigler knows how to set the scene musically for a great Christmas holiday celebration.

"O Holy Night", another popular track, finds Sigler delivering his signature vocal style on the sacred song. "I've been singing 'O Holy Night' all my life", Sigler says. "I knew that if I ever planned to record a Christmas song, it would be 'O Holy Night,'" he shares. Each song is perfectly executed and sure to have all its listeners in the holiday spirit.

This Philadelphia native began his singing career in churches all over the metropolitan area with songs like "O Lord My God" and "The Lord's Prayer". When You’re In Love At Christmas Time shows that it's more than just the music that captivates his heart; it's a testimony of his relationship with Jesus Christ. "I'm in this for real," says Sigler. "Although I've sung urban music, I never stopped singing sacred music. For me, it's all about ministry."

Bunny Sigler is a rare breed of pure talent. His the holiday album When You're In Love At Christmas Time will be penned as a timeless Christmas classic and it will certainly be a repeat album for many seasons to come.


Cassandra's Review- I am most excited to bring you this CD.  Bunny Sigler is amazing and his voice is smooth.  I had a great time listening to his music and getting into the holiday spirit.
Margo Rey
Los Angeles, CA (November 11, 2014) — Seven-time Billboard charting singer/songwriter Margo Rey will be re-releasing her Christmas EP, This Holiday Night including the original title track along with unforgettable classics, “Toy Land” and “Silent Night”. Rey will also be releasing a “Es Navidad,” a Spanish version of “This Holiday Night.” After her most recent single “Colours”, an emotional and inspirational song about overcoming obstacles, Rey returns with this holiday release just in time for the season.
Margo Rey
Born in Acapulco, Mexico, Rey puts a unique, Latin touch to this 2014 single of “This Holiday Night” – a Top 5 Holiday classic that has continued to dominate and have major chart success on AC radio. Following her album release of Habit and successfully battling breast cancer for a second time in 2013, Margo never stopped pursuing her music. Margo Rey recently became the National Ambassador for non-profit organization Brides Against Breast Cancer providing her top 20 Billboard charting song, “Let The Rain”, co-written by legendary John Oates as their theme song.

The Indie Music Digest says, “Her musical/vocal style is cut from the cloth of Celine Dion, Bonnie Raitt and Shania Twain.” – but I will add she can go toe to toe with any of them vocally.

Working in the music business since she was only eleven years old, Margo continues to provide an array of her signature rich vocals with smooth tunes and funky beats with every release.

Cassandra's Review-  Margo Rey has an  amazing and angelic voice that makes this CD a great! Not only is she a remarkable artist but her music will fill your heart and home,
