Hello everyone!

I hope summer was easy and breezy and ultimately relaxing for you and your families.

There a many changes going on at B.A.S.E.D. Press, and one of them is my new favorite thing! You all know how much I love writers. I love them. I love reading, I love the vast expanses of human imagination.

Every week, I'm featuring a new writer. Typically, I feature only fiction novelists, but I have recently met incredibly talented nonfiction writers who have stolen my heart. I love stories, real or imagined, stories are the thread that bind the fabric of our culture.


I'm working tirelessly on adding a nonfiction division at B.A.S.E.D. Press. I want to bring you stories from across the globe and the bookstore aisle. Until then, I want to share them with you. I think you'll enjoy it.

Series- Their Sins #1.5
By- A. Gorman
Genre- Romantic Suspense
Expected Publication Date- April 19th

Chet Boston has everything he wants—except love.
Raised as an affluent only child, Chet used his popularity and status to his advantage. While attending Indiana University Bloomington, he falls into the party scene. His drugs of choice? Alcohol, cocaine—and women. He is honest with his agenda. That way no one gets hurt, and he gets what he wants.
His playboy lifestyle comes to an end when he meets Alexis Cross.
Although he enjoys his revolving door of women, when he meets Alexis at a charity dinner, all of that changes. But when she leaves him for a co-worker in California, he trashes any future possibility for romance and vows to get on with his life.
Blood is thicker than water—or so they say.
When Chet discovers he has an older half-sister, Chantelle, life changes yet again. She wasn’t raised with his silver spoon, and it soon becomes clear she is after one thing—money. Chantelle digs up dirt to blackmail him into being a puppet master, and forces him to help her land a billionaire husband.
What he didn’t expect was to meet Jesse McCoy—the billionaire’s daughter.
Chet and Jesse’s fast and furious romance leaves him pinned, and it isn’t long before his life spirals out of control. But there’s one more curveball he didn’t see coming…
And it will change his life forever.


About the Author-

A. Gorman was born and raised in a small community in Central Indiana. She left the slow moving life of the country for the fast-paced city life. After spending twelve years in the city and becoming a mother to two wild and crazy kids, she chose to move back to the peace and quiet of the country after marrying the man of her dreams and gaining three more children.
As an avid reader, A. never set out to be an author since she’s a full-time editor for several incredible authors. However, after editing one day, a voice started talking to her and talking and talking. She decided to sit down and write what she had to say, and it turned out she had a lot to say. Then that one voice turned to two, and another story came to life. Not believing that anything she was writing was publishable, she asked a few friends to critique her manuscript…and now she’s the proud author of the Their Sins series, with several more series and standalones planned.
When she’s not corralling their five kids and two dogs or out in their garden, you can find her at her desk editing or writing her next novel with a cup of coffee and classical music cranked up on her iPad. While she loves reading, A. is addicted to all things British, coffee, and gummy bears—in no particular order.

He met the Hardy Boys when he was six, Bilbo Baggins when he was eight, and cried for an hour when he was ten because that really shouldn't have happened to Frodo toward the end of The Two Towers. It was also at age 10 that Erik thought, "maybe I could write a story." Before he was 12 Erik had attempted a book, an epic poem in rhyming couplets and various bits of stories and poetry. In high school he kept writing, and managed to create an impressive portfolio of maudlin teen-age angst-filled poetry that has thankfully not survived. It was in his last year of high school, in the creative writing class of Mr. Robert Currie, a great English teacher, writer and poet, where Erik where he had the first vague notions of "being a writer." He kept writing through university, even as the theatre sunk its teeth and claws into him. He came out of university with a B.F.A., a pair of black belts, and a desire to be on the stage. Erik moved to Toronto and spent thirteen years pursuing (but never quite catching) a career as an actor and a fight director. He wrote his first novel in a small attic room in a downtown rooming house, sitting on a cushion on the floor with his laptop perched on a box in front of him. Shortly after, he wrote "Small Magics," then "Cold Magics." Erik is has just finished writing "City of Phantoms," a young adult novel set in Victorian England. He is now writing the third book in the Magics series while he edits "the King Below" (another fantasy novel he has written) and "City of Phantoms," and still works on that zombie movie.
