The Brave Art of Motherhood blog blitz final

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and we're joining up with JustRead Publicity Tours to tell you about a great gift for Mom this year! Keep reading for more info on a special ebook price to make your gift giving even easier AND a book club kit giveaway!


the brave art of motherhood Title: The Brave Art of Motherhood: Fight Fear, Gain Confidence, & Find Yourself Again
Author: Rachel Marie Martin  
Publisher: WaterBrook  
Release Date: October 9, 2018
Genre: Christian Living/Women's Interest  

Full-time FindingJoy.net blogger, speaker, marketer, podcaster, and single mom of seven, Rachel Marie Martin presents a wake-up call to those of us who have found ourselves stuck in the 'I'm just a mom' phase of life.

Yes, this book is about motherhood . . . but really, this book is about finding yourself again and following your passion WHILE being a mom. Inspired by her incredible story, Rachel's words always come straight from the gut; they are visceral, real and soul searching. She challenges you to find the courage to break cycles, to take off masks and not let fear take control. This book is a balance of tough, "no excuses" ways of approaching life, while allowing breathing room and grace for yourself, for as we all know, life and mothering are not perfect.

After inspiring and conversing with thousands of women, Rachel has surmised there is always a reason to hope, to move forward and a reason to dare doing what you thought was impossible. (Yes, including what you are skeptical of accomplishing right now). She encourages you to say yes to your dreams and stop waiting for "someday" or "one day" or "when something happens".

Prepare to change the way you think about yourself and your life. This will be a book you read over and over armed with a highlighter in one hand and a journal for introspection in another.

With blood on my hands, I held her.
With death in my soul, I took from her.
With the devil in my heart, I coveted her.
There are many definitions of Hell.

Tonight I was adding something new to the very top.
Girl number six thirty-two.
She arrived on my birthday, the same day, every year, I play Russian Roulette and pull the trigger.
She was my omen.
My end game.
She made it personal.
And for the first time in my life, I gave in.

My name is Andrei Petrov.
They call me the devil.
All I want is for the pain to end.

And my last wish remains for it to die with me.

Review of Onyx Elixir by Frost Kay

Fact 752 - Karma was a vindictive wench, and Luck, no lady.

Allie never believed in Karma, but after the week she'd had, she was prone to believe that if such an entity existed, it had to be a woman. Only a woman could hold such an ugly, nasty grudge, and make Allie's life so impossibly miserable. If spying for the enemy and a broken heart wasn't enough, someone had even stolen her favorite heels. Classy, right? Bad luck strikes again.

Fact 689 - Southern girls were supposed to be graceful losers.

Spying for Sloven wasn't the plan, but every attempt she made to escape his clutches only entrenched her deeper into a war Allie never wanted to be part of. Good thing her mama taught her how to fight dirty. Allie would play his game, and do the one thing he didn't think possible. She'd win.

Fact 521 - Never play a player, or in this case, a southern belle.

It was just one compromise...

"Once you take one sip of this series, you'll probably want to keep coming back for more!" ~ Goodreads Reviewer

Mixologists and Pirates Series
1 - Amber Vial
2 - Emerald Bane
3 - Scarlet Venom
4 - Cyan Toxin
5 - Onyx Elixir

Holy moly! Frost Kay is quickly becoming the Cliffhanger Queen! Each book in this series seems to end with another cliffhanger that leaves you screaming for more! And can we talk about all the twists and turns blindsiding the reader at every turn! Good gracious, I half expect this series to end with Allie waking up on Earth to all this being a really bad dream and I'm pretty sure she would appreciate that. However, she wouldn't have met her friends and probably still trying to perfect her moonshining skills unsuccessfully on Earth if she happened to still be there. So eventhough she's been through countless traumatic events, blindsided by betrayals and being stalk by a insane maniac I think she would appreciate this adventure over a mundane earthly existence, if she survives this ordeal,that is! Oh and I must mention the Blade the hottie,man can Allie just give in to her emotions and take a chance on him? I sure hope the slow burn of romance catches fire!

Rune's Folly Blog Tour

Rune’s Folly
Garen Glazier
Publication date: February 5th 2019
Genres: Adventure, Fantasy, Young Adult
By day, Tansy McCoy is a florist making charmed bouquets for the citizens of Junonia, capital of the Kingdom of Terranmar. By night, she’s an assassin and the keeper of the Dangerous Garden where deadly blooms grow. Together with the town tailor, butcher, baker, and metalsmith (just don’t call her a candlestick maker), she is part of the Guild, a secret group of spell-wielding thieves and mercenaries. Their task: consolidate all that remains of the realm’s fading magic under the ruthless King Zeno’s control.
Impetuous loner Tansy chafes under her Guild demands. She longs to quit her town and trade and head for the hills. Unfortunately, King Zeno has other plans. He wants to marry off his daughter to Terranmar’s famously reclusive wizard, Rune Hallows, and he’s willing to have the Guild kidnap him to make it happen. Fail to deliver the wizard and the consequences will be swift and deadly.
Reluctant but determined, Tansy sets out on the long journey to faraway Wentletrap and Rune’s desolate tower by the sea. To get there she must cross a swamp full of sinister surprises, battle a werewolf, and outrace a bloodthirsty band of revenants, while she wrestles with her own magical powers that seem to be expanding in unpredictable ways.
But reaching Rune’s tower is only the beginning. When Tansy learns the real reason behind the king’s contest, she’ll need to decide whether to give in to the growing forces of magic ready to reclaim Terranmar or embrace her newfound powers to save the kingdom.
What an exciting wonderful adventure through an imaginary creative fantasy world! This book is filled with everything you could want,it have adventure, mystery, romance, loveable characters, amazing plot twists and a storyline that sucks you in and keeps you hanging on to the very end. I love trying to guess where the plot is going and what's going to happen next but what really makes a great book is when it surprises you! I'm excited to see where the author takes us next in this story!

Author Bio:
I have always called Seattle home and find the perpetual gloom to be a wonderful writing ally. I like coffee shops, bookstores, dancing in my living room and singing in my car. The opening scene of Up makes me cry. Three Amigos makes me laugh. Fashion magazines, croissants, and long, long baths are my guilty pleasures. They might occur separately or together. I prefer boxing classes to yoga, and I get some of my best ideas when I'm running. I loved school and spent more time than one really should getting a business degree in marketing and a master's in art history. In an ideal world I'd go to bed at 2am and wake up at 10am. I've never been an early bird, and I feel strongly that alarm clocks kill dreams.

Review of Beauty in Flight Trilogy

I'm a sucker for Christian thriller books after Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker drew me back on the love of reading with their suspenseful stories. This may not be labeled as a Christian thriller but it has the same aspects as that genre I love! The story was a slow burn of anticipating something something just around the corner creeping ever steadily until BAM it jumps out at you and you fall off the edge of your seat that you've been clinging to for dear life! The way the author builds up the suspense and slams you with a cliffhanger is exactly what I crave in a story!
I can totally relate to Harper's constant suspicion of being watched or followed. Once you've been in a situation where you've experienced fear,it never really leaves you. Now I've taken a long journey of healing and restoration with Jesus and have overcome much of that but I'm still in the process of complete healing and restoration. I hope Harper can find that too!

Harper and Red are on the run from Derrick whose hell bent on getting money from his grandfather and revenge against Harper. But as they hide out from Derrick, Harper's relationship with her "grandfather " Red, grows as does her budding friendship with her landlord and her relationship with God. Harper's has been anything but easy and past mistakes has brought hardships but she's slowly learning to trust God even though her trust in men is waning. But what will happen when the past catches up with her? 

The third book in this trilogy brings a conclusion worth waiting for through all the suspense, mystery, and edge of your seat anticipation. Jack may just be the man to prove to Harper that not all of the male gender are manipulating, selfish people who can't be trusted. He stands by her side as she takes a terrifying leap of faith to make sure Red is safe and Derrick can't get to either of them. As she tries to put the pieces of her life in order and bring light to the truth she may just learn that God really does bring beauty from ashes!
