Publication date: September 18th 2021
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
A search for a cure. A journey fraught with danger. A fateful bond.
Determined demon-hunter, Maeve, must risk everything to obtain The Book of Raziel—a font of spells, divine magic, and ethereal knowledge—to cure her work partner of a deadly supernatural virus. And though she isn’t surprised to discover that the book is in the Garden of Eden, she is surprised to learn that the garden is situated in Hell!
Now Maeve faces her biggest challenge: fighting her inner demons¬, or be lost to the wanderlust of Hell forever.
Broken and reclusive, Ezra Virunas has one goal—kill the demon who stole the Sacred Seals, and, in return, he would regain his freedom. Never mind that Ezra has to use Maeve’s soul as bait to close the case, Ezra knows just how deceitful women can be, and he is convinced Maeve is no different. But he is mistaken, and despite fighting against it, her pure heart soon becomes a light to his darkened past.
As Maeve and Ezra’s bond deepens, so too does the danger awaiting them. Will they emerge from Hell unscathed?
Love Me To Hell And Back is a haunting tale of self-reflection and forgiveness.

Ten things I think every aspiring writer should know
by Elizabeth Mason
- Read, read, and read some more. You’ve probably heard this advice before, and for a good reason. It’s necessary to read books in the genre you are writing. This practice keeps authors updated on writing styles, what’s popular, what’s growing, and what’s losing readers’ interests.
- Promote your book before you write it. I wish I had known this before I wrote my first book. Most agents and publishers today consider the size of your social media followers before agreeing to work with you.
- Trust your instincts. This advice was a big one for me. I was told to trust my instincts several times but constantly second-guessed everything. Nothing was ever good enough, and soon, I got caught up in this pointless routine of writing, deleting, writing some more, and deleting again. It was a massive waste of time. Eventually, I had to trust myself, and in the end, the story unfolded how it was meant to.
- Do NaNoWriMo. I spent years writing my first book, and if only I had heard of NaNoWriMo, the process would have been faster and consistent. Let’s be honest, we all could use a little push sometimes.
- It’s okay to walk away! I edited my first book too many times; I practically memorized the entire thing. I read the lines how I wanted them to sound instead of how they actually read. I skipped the errors and didn’t see the mistakes, so I took a break. I put my book aside for a week or two, and when I returned, I did so with a fresh pair of eyes.
- Plan, organize, chronologically outline the plot, understand the characters inside-and-out. I would have saved hundreds of hours if I had taken the time to plan my story before I wrote it. You don’t have to get picky or excessively detailed but plan enough to make the process easier for you. StoryPlanner.com is a valuable site. They have many planning techniques to explore.
- Tell people you’re writing a book. I would have never finished my first book if I didn’t tell people. I wanted to give up many times during the development process, but my pride wouldn’t let me. I didn’t want the people I told to see me as a failure.
- Buy the book The Emotion Thesaurus: A writer’s Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi. In fact, buy all the books. They are helpful when you need an appropriate action or response that matches a particular emotion a character is feeling.
- Get beta-readers to read your book before submitting it to agents and/or publishers. Beta readers help find plot holes, point out mistakes, tell you what works and doesn’t. Find beta readers that match your targeted audience, people who consistently read the genre you write. Don’t ask a person who fancies non-fiction to read and comment on your sci-fi novel.
- Continue learning. It takes practice, knowledge, and patience to be a great reader. Listen to criticism, read how-to books, follow writing blogs, do whatever it takes to improve.
