literary release from Maryland author J.B. Ogg. An avid fan of

horror and thriller authors such as Stephen King and Dean Koontz, this offering of seven original stories carrying readers through the range of emotions is sure to make hairs stand up and hearts pump harder as palms get sweaty while the pages keep turning. “I had to get these stories out of my head before they moved to my hands,” the entrepreneur and Tennessee native joked. “I’ve always been a fan of the macabre genre and how, in ever story, somebody gets killed. I wrote these stories years ago, and after recently finding them again and retyping them, editing as I went, I felt like now was the time to put them out.”

His hope is to inspire other lovers of exciting reads to pen their

own, while also introducing new readers to his own contributions. A beloved volunteer and mentor to youth, J.B. Ogg is an avid pet

lover and family man. He is also a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, INC.

"I read the whole book in one sitting! I couldn't put it down. The stories were so weird and shocking, yet very entertaining! It's a great book! - C. Floyd

"The book was interesting and kept my attention. J.B. Ogg is crazy and demented!" - D. Allen

"The 1st chapter was intriguing, Revenge was my favorite, The family business was epic! I was sucked in from chapter 1. I started reading and couldn't stop. I'm a fan!" -LT Anderson

A cesarean! The doctors had said that the delivery could be possible if they performed a cesarean section. I don't give a damn if they perform a cesarean or not; I'm not having this damn thing. What kind of freak would it be-the both of us, main attractions at some fucking sideshow?

Beauty In Chaos Review


𝙏𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙨 𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚, 𝙡𝙞𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙙𝙚𝙚𝙥-𝙧𝙤𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙚𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙮𝙖𝙡...

𝐃𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐖𝐚𝐥𝐤! 𝐑𝐔𝐍! Beauty in Chaos by Author Nacole Stayton is 𝐀𝐕𝐀𝐈𝐋𝐀𝐁𝐋𝐄 𝐍𝐎𝐖!



𝘼𝙪𝙧𝙤𝙧𝙖 𝘽𝙧𝙖𝙙𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙬 𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙫𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙪𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣. 𝘽𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙝𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙘𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙡𝙚𝙛𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙙𝙚𝙚𝙥-𝙧𝙤𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙨𝙨𝙪𝙚𝙨.  

Enduring rough living conditions became second nature. With her shield of sarcasm and a tenacity of amour, Rory’s gut had never failed her. That was until she landed in a small town with a passion for bourbon, horse-racing, and the Jordan brothers.

The walls of her new foster home were abundant but brimmed with secrets of their own. She knew biding her time until her eighteenth birthday wouldn’t be easy. 𝗨𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗹 𝘀𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗮 𝘀𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝘀𝗼𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗻𝗲𝗶𝗴𝗵𝗯𝗼𝗿𝘀, 𝗧𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝘄 𝗝𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗮𝗻.

𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙖 𝙟𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙩 𝙚𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙜𝙚𝙨, 𝙍𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙞𝙙𝙙𝙡𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙣 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙚.

The most paramount decision she’s ever been faced with was choosing between two boys. Each claiming a little bit of her heart for unique reasons. Amidst the chaos that surrounded her, she found beauty in the boisterous laughter one brought and the myriad of feelings the other made her feel.

𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙙𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙨𝙝𝙚’𝙙 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙖 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙚, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙣𝙤 𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨. 𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙪𝙣𝙚 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙥𝙖𝙨𝙩, 𝙍𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚.

My Review:

This was a quick read and really makes you feel. You learn just how messed up the foster system is and you really feel for Rory and Lonnie. Rory is such a strong young lady, and when she meets the Jordan brothers, the chaos really begins. I loved this a lot, it was very sweet and those boys were awesome. This is my firsttime with this author, but I really enjoyed this read and will definitely look forward to more from her. Definitely recommend this read for anyone who loves a little chaos!

They head for Canada, where Amber will be safe, and the foster care system can no longer control their lives. When they come across a whitewater rafting brochure, they decide to take a detour for one last adventure before leaving the country. Emmy and Amber have no idea it will be a decision that will forever change their fates.

Ignoring every instinct, they turn off the pavement and follow the truck down an isolated dirt road. They end up in Lodell, the town where a girl went missing the previous summer…and she will not be the last.

RR Book Tour - House of Straw by Marc Scott (Psychological Thriller)


...remember, not all girls are made of sugar and spice.  Welcome to the tour for House of Sticks, the sequel to House of Straw by Marc Scott. Read on for more details! 2940185653081_p0_v1_s1200x630 

  House of Sticks 
  Publication Date: February 2022 
  Genre: Psychological Thriller 

 They are united now, two sisters who were kept apart by the cruel twists in their lives. And, despite the fact these siblings grew up at the opposite end of the social ladder, they have discovered that they share an unbreakable bond. It is like a modern-day fairy tale coming to life. 

 However, the pathway to their shared happiness is littered with misgivings and depraved memories from which they can never escape. Brianna is still haunted by the tragic death of her twin brother while Poppy finds it hard to let go of the ghosts of her abusive childhood. 

 It seems that the forces around them will never leave them alone. Neddy, a ruthless drug dealer is hell-bent on revenge. A worried mother who is desperate to unlock the darkest of secrets. A stranger with tattooed fingers who must face retribution for his evil sins. These women must be strong to survive.

  But remember, not all girls are made of sugar and spice.  Be prepared! This is not a fairy tale…


Liver and Lights never did visit Lucy on that bitter cold and frosty night, but the myth was enough to buy the silence of at least a dozen of the victims of the sadistic caretaker. A lifelong warning that would forever disturb the minds and souls of even the strongest of them.

The loud commotion at the back gate that night was that of Lucy’s father, who, following his release from prison, had driven south from Cumbria for eight hours in heavy snowstorms to be re-united with his daughter.  The pair enjoyed a hearty breakfast the following morning before driving up to Kendal in the north of England. Life returned to normal, or at least as normal as it would ever be for young Lucy.

She never did tell her rescuer about the atrocities that went on behind closed doors in that Childrens Home. She feared that if she did, her father would over-react, as he had done with the ‘touchy-feely’ teacher at her school and beat the living daylights out of Sean Donovan. She did not relish the idea of her father going back to prison. But neither Lucy nor her father were surprised when they discovered that the Bluebridge Childrens Home was closed some years later, following several abuse allegations against members of its staff. Justice final caught up with the wicked caretaker more recently when a Paedophile Hunting Group caught him red-handed grooming two thirteen-year-old girls. He has served almost two years of the seven-year sentence he received for his crimes and had recently been placed in the isolation unit of the prison for his own safety.

Lucy Jones had carried the unwelcome burden of being an exceptionally pretty child. Her shiny blonde hair, silky soft skin and piercing blue eyes made her stand out in a crowd. It also made her a target for every sick pervert that crossed her path when she was placed into the care system. However, the girl had coped better than most did and is now a strong-minded survivor of the torturous nightmares she endured during those eighteen months.

She is twenty-seven years old now and is married to the manager of a clothing store. She lives two streets away from her doting father who visits her at least three times each week. She is a mother herself, twice over, two daughters, one of which she named Poppy, in memory of a brave young girl who had once put her own safety at risk to protect her.

She never fails to read her daughters bedtime stories, telling them tales of handsome princes and fairy queens who live idyllic lives in beautiful surroundings. But sometimes, just sometimes, when she slips those magical books back into the drawer, it all comes back to her. She remembers Donovan’s frightening tale of his phantom accomplice Liver and Lights. And on those nights, she will always watch over her children until they are soundly asleep. Occasionally, she finds herself caught up in the moment. And on those nights, she can be seen staring out of her children’s bedroom window, up at the surrounding darkness, shouting a few words she keeps locked away inside her head.

Available on Amazon 


  House of Straw 
  Publication Date: November 2018 
  Genre: Psychological Thriller 

 Traumatised by the tragic death of her twin brother, Brianna falls into a state of deep depression, isolating herself from the world and all those that care about her. When a twist of fate reveals that she has a half-sister she finds a new purpose in her life and sets out to find her sibling, desperately hoping she can fill the void left in her world. 

 Poppy has not enjoyed the same privileged lifestyle as her sister while growing up. Abandoned into the care system at the age of eight, she has encountered both physical and sexual abuse for most of her life. Passing through the hands of more care homes and foster families than she can remember, the damaged product of a broken upbringing, Poppy has never found a place to feel truly safe. Kicking back at society, she turns to drug abuse and acts of extreme violence to escape from reality. 

 When the two siblings are finally united, they discover that they have much more in common than their DNA. Their paths are shrouded with sinister secrets of betrayal and regret and both girls share a deep-rooted hatred for one of their parents. As the dark truths of their lives are unveiled they realise that nothing can ever be the same again… 

  CW: Dark chapters involving child abuse and brutality, adult themes 


About the Author


 Marc Scott was born and raised in the heart of the East End of London. He spent more than 25 years working in the video and film industry, including a 12-month spell on a project in Los Angeles. More recently he has been involved with assisting at the rehabilitation section of the UK court service, working predominantly with young offenders.  It was here where he met the people that would inspire him to write his first novel House of Straw. 

 He is unapologetic for the dark backdrop and raw brutality in his books. ‘You can’t sugar-coat some of these damaged individuals that live in a broken society and make excuses for them.’ he says. ‘Not everyone wants the chance to redeem themselves.’ His gritty writing style has earned him much praise from reviewers and bloggers. The second book in his trilogy, House of Sticks, will be available later this year. A story that Marc describes as, ‘An even darker and more twisted journey into the depths of depravity.’ 

 Marc lives in Halstead in England. He has a son and two daughters, who, he says, have given him the proudest moments in his life. He lists his favourite author as Kazuo Ishiguro, and his favourite book as ‘Birdy’ by William Wharton. He sums up his reading choices with a method which he applies to his own works.  ‘When I read a book, I want to feel like a bystander, watching on, as an ‘extra’ as everything unfolds. If any of the characters in the book are bland and don’t affect you in some way, the author has wasted an opportunity.’

Romance Your Dark Side Virtual Book Tour & Giveaway


The Harpyiai Order.

We are the Harpyiai.

People snatchers. Monsters out of the darkest fairytales. The sins of our forefathers bind us in blood to a lifetime of obligation, rituals, and death.

They call us Marquises.

Men capable of taking your body and mind to the limits.

Sometimes beyond.


Most of us would rather die than lose it, and some have.

Our training robs us of our humanity.

Distorts our view of consent, love, and family.

Our bloodlines are carefully controlled. Those born inside the order become masters over the others – the illegitimate children of a Marquis and an outsider.

All except for me.


My father broke our traditions and had his illegitimate son trained as a Marquis.

I was the sacrifice he made for the mistake of my birth.

But I refused to comply with their demands.

Only his status and wealth keep me alive; an unwilling pawn, a foot soldier in the games he plays with the other families.

Only one unbreakable rule keeps my brother from sharing my fate.


I can't have a normal life.

Can't have her.

But I want her, even if it's forbidden, even if it puts everything at risk.

She is the light in my darkness – the pleasure in my pain.

The forbidden fruit in my corrupted world – another illegitimate.

The only question is, how much will this cost us all?

Author's note: This is a dark romance. It contains strong language, violence, and situations some may find triggering.

This is the first book in a series. No cheating. HEA guaranteed
