~WAIT FOR YOU Cover Reveal and Release! ~

 Excited? Ready to see the cover for 

Some things are worth waiting for…
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing…
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.
Some things should never be kept quiet…
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
And some things are worth fighting for…

Review of The Difference Between Night and Day

~ A Christian Paranormal Romance ~

Nathaniel Taylor was a Christian who thought believers were exempted from "dark times." That was until he entered his own long time in the dark. When he meets Lilly, a young woman in danger, it sends him on a journey to discover the difference between night and day and that during dark times, the Light is hidden, not gone

 I didn't know what to expect out of a Christian Paranormal Romance but I am glad I gave it a chance.It really spoke to me.It helped me see the Light in my own darkness.The Scriptures used were perfect to convey the message in this book.Nathaniel see the world how most of us see it :if we are good then we deserve good and how many Christians see the world:if I follow God then we will not suffer." We forget that even though Job was righteous is God's eyes,he still suffered and he held on to his trust that God was in control so he was blessed even more than he was before his time of suffering.Jesus suffered,The Disciples suffered,others who have spread the Gospel suffered so what makes us think we are excepted? I think we subconsciously look at the good part of promises of prosperity and blessings without examining all of what God said.He never promised we wouldn't suffer,he actually said we would,but he will walk us through the storm. We lose hope and forget to trust Him to lead us through because all we can see is the darkness,so we take control and instead of being lead by Him out of the darkness we stumble around in it then wonder why we can't see the Light.
 Nathaniel was accustomed to living a blessed life.So when darkness falls on him,he believes he is out of God's reach.He never stops believing in God,he just loses hope that God can reach into the darkness to bring him back to the light.Then he meets Lilly,who despite her suffering,has hope.But Nathaniel still has to decide if he is going to just stand in the shadows of light that Lilly projects or if he is going to walk fully into the light.

Author Bio:Melissa Turner Lee

I'm a stay-at-home mom of three of the CRAZIEST boys ever. And I love them to bits. I'm also a wife to a wonderful man I met when I was 17. He went to a different High School than I did but we both worked at McDonald's. It was before texting and cell phones so we'd write notes at school and exchange them at work. We'd also talk to each other over the drive-thru headsets. Then he told me he had a picture he had drawn for art class long before he knew me that his cousin pointed out looked just like me. The picture went missing when we got married and moved into our first home together. This was kind of the inspiration for The Earth Painter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Marketing which I have never used because I've been home with my boys. Then one day my man sent me to the local book store for a day to myself. I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and my life changed. I remembered being 17. I remembered falling in love. But most of all I remembered ME. I'd become "Mommy" and forgotten all about Melissa, the girl who dreamed of being a writer, but suddenly I remembered and the writing started. And It hasn't stopped.

The Truth About Letting Go by Leigh T. Moore Release Blitz

A companion to The Truth About Faking (not a sequel; the books can be read out of order), The Truth About Letting Go (link) takes readers back to Shadow Falls, or more specifically Shadow Creek, with Ashley Lockett as she learns about real friendship, love, and letting go.

Get me
by Leigh Talbert Moore

Ashley wants to smash everything in her once-perfect life.
Charlotte wants to walk in Ashley's seemingly charmed shoes.
Colt wants to turn Smalltown USA on its ear--with Ashley at his side.
Jordan wants to follow his heart... but Ashley is the one sacrifice he never expected to make.

Up until now, Ashley Lockett has always followed the rules. She's always done the right thing, played it safe, and then her ideal life is shattered when her dad dies suddenly.

Fueled by anger and grief, she vows to do everything opposite of how she lived before. She rejects safety, the rules, faith, and then she meets Jordan.

Jordan has big dreams, he's had a crush on Ashley for years, he's a great kisser... but he's also safe.

Enter Colt. He is not safe, and he's more than willing to help Ashley fulfill her vow.

I feel Colt laugh, and he looks down into my face. That’s when he seems to realize what I’ve been acutely aware of for the last several minutes—our bodies are pressed together.
“It’s awesome, yeah?” he says. “Adrenaline rush.”
“Yeah,” I breathe. “I guess.”
I’m not sure if he’s going to kiss me until he does. His mouth covers mine, and energy mixes with the alcohol flooding my body. Our tongues slide together, and I grip his shirt so I don’t collapse. 
Every single bit of this is wrong, and there’s no way I’m stopping it. It’s back, that good feeling. The sadness has been pushed out again, and in its place is this rush, this rush of adrenaline like Colt said. 
He pulls back and smiles at me. “We’re going to start dating. Now. You’re my partner in crime.”

~Teaser from Author Amber Garza's SHATTER~

A little teaser while we wait for Shatter's release next week!! I suppose I should feature Jax, so you can get to know him a bit. From Micah's POV:
Sam sputters in an effort to draw breath. He claws at my fingers with his hand, but I don't let go. His eyes widen, and he starts kicking the wall with his feet like he's hoping to get someone's attention. I squeeze tighter, and his face turns beet red. The bedroom door swings open behind me and Ariel rushes in.
"Micah. Let go of him. Now!"
"Seriously, dude, as much fun as this looks, I don't think it's helping us find the girls," Jax says.
Realizing he's right, I release Sam and he sucks in a few deep breaths while stroking his neck. Deep scarlet handprints arise on his flesh.
"If you like your neck, you probably should leave," Jax nods to Sam, who readily takes his advice and scurries toward the hallway still fingering his neck.
Before he leaves, he turns and looks at me. "I'm going to find Delaney. With or without your help."
After he races off, Jax shrugs."The guy's definitely got balls, I'll give him that."
I exhale and a stream of air flows past my throat. I feel my heart rate start to slow. When I’m more composed, I turn to Jax. "Hey, can you give me a minute alone with Ariel?
"Planning to pin her up against the wall too?" He cocks an eyebrow. Ariel's face reddens.
"Jax. Seriously?" I groan.
He holds up his hands as if in surrender. "Okay, okay, I get it. It's none of my business. Have fun, you two. "After throwing us a wink, he leaves the room, closing the door behind him.

DAZZLE is ONLY 99 cents 

For each time you spread the word about it being 99 cents go on her facebook author page and tell her and you'll be entered to win an ecopy of SHATTER!!!

Goodness gracious this woman knows how to write a story that captivates you from page one and doesn't let go even after you finish reading it! I was reeled it from the beginning by Sophie and Spencer. I giggled to myself at their banter.They try their darnest to to convince themselves and each other they are not the least bit interested in one another.Well you can only lie to yourself for so long before the truth comes out. Spencer has been hurt and refuses to give into any female but Sophie isn't just any female. She is the real deal.She plays for keeps.Just when Sophie and Spencer decide to give each other a chance,things start to horribly wrong. Someone is stalking them and tormenting them with attacks on them and their homes.But who would want to hurt them and why?  Airicka gives just enough detail to keep you guessing.The minute I thought I knew who it was something would happen that made me second guess myself.I was hanging on to every page in hoping for revelation of the stalker and wanting Sophie and Spencer safe.And boy was I shocked by the ending.I found my breathe catching in my throat and then yelling at the stalker for what he was doing.This is a must read!

Blindsighted Wander By E.C. Hibbs Blog Tour

The Wall has long kept Elitland Valley safe from the demons on the other side. For centuries the villagers have avoided speaking of the Wall or the creatures it protects them from.  

Upon their return from the annual Country Fayre, the older Atego brothers learn of their father’s passing. When fifteen year old Silas Atego learns the mysterious illness that took his father might have been a curse from a demon, his need for answers draws him to the one place he must not go.  The far side of the Wall.

When Silas is still missing days later, his older brother Raphael sets out on his own to bring him home.  On his journey, Raphael learns how it was his ancestor who was cursed by a demon creature from the Lake and had the Wall built to keep them out. More desperate than ever to find his brother, his search draws Raphael to the same terrifying barrier.

Along the brothers’ individual travels they face their greatest fears, make lifelong friends, and more importantly, learn the truth of what happened centuries ago. 

Blindsighted Wanderer is a tale about how truth and forgiveness will set you free.  Where myths are transformed to legends that last a lifetime.  The brothers leave their home as desperate boys but return to their family as honorable men.

Blindsighted Wanderer is a young adult fantasy, coming of age story appropriate for readers 12 +

The Blindsighted Wanderer is a story woven with anger, revenge, fear of the unknown, kindness, love and forgiveness. The characters real grow as lessons are learned. It is a beautifully written story which flowed easily.
One man’s wrong brought about a curse upon himself and all the males in his family for many generations. After losing their father and being told by the Priest that the curse has something to do with the demons behind the wall, Silas sets out to find the truth. But his journey does not fare well and his good intentions are viewed as wrong. He finds help in the Travellers’ camp. While he is being taken care of there, his brother, Raphael, sets out to find him. Raphael finds shelter in a town where he finds some distant kinfolk. They tell him of the curse brought on by his forefather, Adrian. He sets out to find Silas over the wall. What he finds is the one who cast the curse. Out of his kindness, Princess Merrin’s heart starts to grapple with the hatred she has harness for centuries. Can she find it in her heart to forgive an ancient hurt and lift the curse from the Ategos family? Will Raphael and Silas make it back home?

Airicka Phoenix's TOUCH Series get Revamped Covers!

Oh my goodness aren't these covers gorgeous?! I definitely think so.I hope you love them as much as I do.So now for your viewing pleasure: 

Synopsis Touching Smoke:

For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN being on the run had been the easiest part of her life. Packing up and crossing whole cities on a split second decision had been tedious, having no friends and being alone had been painful, but being caught by the truth was something she learned too late was worse.

Fallon is a weapon. She was created to destroy. Keeping her alive, keeping her safe is all Isaiah knows. It’s all that matters, because Fallon is his. She belongs to him. She is a part of his body, his soul, his heart. He will do anything, kill anyone to keep her, even if it means sacrificing himself.

But can Fallon believe the stranger on the motorcycle claiming he was there to die for her? How do you trust when you have no one but the memories of a girl you’ve never met and a tall, dark, gorgeous boy that you feel pulsing deep in your soul? What do you do when you’ve been lied to your whole life? When you’re told you’re normal even though nothing about you is normal? Fallon must learn quickly just what she is before the evil chasing her finally gets what it wants… her blood.

The world depends on her not falling in love, not giving in. But what happens when the temptation becomes too great, when falling is her only option? Can she live knowing the world will burn because his touch is the only thing keeping her alive?

Touch Passion. Touch Power. Touch Smoke!

  Synopsis Touching Eternity:

Before Fallon was created to destroy. Before love became the ultimate weapon of destruction. There was Amalie and the horror that started a revolution that tore the fabric of humanity, of everything standing in the balance between power, hope and survival.

Amalie has one wish, one gnawing desire — she wants to die. 

She wants to leave this world behind with its pain and darkness. She wants to finally breathe. But Amalie is a prisoner, a disease, not fit for life. She is unwanted, unnatural. She is defective, something useless and broken. Her own mother hadn’t wanted her. Her father hated her. The world shunned her and the only person she had ever loved, truly and with all her heart and soul, couldn’t stand the sight of her, couldn’t stand the thought of ever being with her. She repulsed him. Her insanity disgusted him. He’d forgotten her. He’d left her behind, deserted and abandoned her to a madman hell bent on crushing her, stealing her soul and shattering her will. 

But what if she’s finally given hope? A reason to live? Can Amalie finally accept the hand offering so much for so little in return? Can she love again when she has nothing left to give? 

Can she finally be free?
