Some of my favorite personal quotes..

Cover Reveal for Persephone by Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author Phoenix Johnson!

From the Bestselling Author who brought you the Award Winning Paranormal Romance Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Wolf Smitten book 2) comes a new Fantasy Paranormal Romance!

Author Phoenix Johnson is thrilled to introduce her next title, Persephone!
The beautiful cover, by the talented and lovely Fiona Jayde!

In this sweet fantasy, Persephone must overcome her abusive past and the alluring call of the Darkness to discover her destiny and the truth about her heritage. 

To be released August 1, 2015, Persephone is the sweeter side of fantasy, much like the books Phoenix grew up reading. She thoroughly enjoyed writing this delightful tale, and sincerely hopes that those who purchase and read Persephone get as much satisfaction from it as she did. 


Persephone takes her future and heart into her own hands when she meets a mysterious man on a sweet summer day. However, when tragedy strikes, Adrian begs her to follow one request: head to the sea. Determined to honor his request, she begins a journey where she discovers her true heritage and family. The problem is, a dangerous past is nipping at her heels every step of the way. Will she make it to the sea and find her destiny? Or will she lose everything she fought so hard to find?

About the Author

Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. 
Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn’t until high school that she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave poetry a try. 
She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix’ first story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her Bachelor of Art’s degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to continue on to her Master’s degree. 
In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she’d made two Top 5 lists with three entries in the 2015 Easychair Bookshop Awards. In June, it was announced she had placed first in Best Paranormal with Once Bitten, Twice Shy, the second installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and Best Series. With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on several Amazon lists, and this was quickly followed by the announcement of her achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for the full second quarter of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller lists for USA Today and New York Times. 
Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its release at the end of June is greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.

Protect yourself from anyone seeing who you may be friends with on Facebook (prying eyes like Amazon)!

It's been suggested, and voted plausible, that Amazon may be using a setting or application that uses the Facebook links provided on your Amazon Author page to scan your Facebook friends list and determine their decision on "you know this author personally" when allowing/disallowing reviews from your readers.

Does anyone really need to see your friends list anyway? No!
Of course, we can all sign the petition asking Amazon to change this policy (and it's doubtful they will), but, in the meantime, why not make it more difficult for them to use your friendships/followers against you, right?

How to lock down your friends list: 
This must be done from a computer or the "desktop site" setting on your mobile device.
If you're unsure if your friends list is currently view able, check it out on step 2 first. 

Step 1: First go to your timeline and click friends (see photo) and enter in "to edit" section and "manage" your friends as per your conditions. (I set mine to friends for all the options here)

Step 2: Go to settings, click on "timeline and tagging", "view as", click on your "friends" tab, and see if it shows your friends/followers. If it's locked down it should say "no friends to show."

Step 3: Rejoice knowing you may have just saved yourself from getting one of those notices from Amazon refusing your review! Either way, your list of friends is now safe from prying eyes. This is good.
