BLOG TOUR | Toni Cox Birthday Special

Hi everyone!

Today we are celebrating Toni Cox’s birthday! I hope you’ll consider taking advantage of her gift to her readers. 😊


It’s my Birthday!

Although it is tradition for the birthday girl to receive the gifts, I have decided to turn things on its head this year by giving all you fantasy fanatics a gift of my own.

All three books of my trilogy will be marked down to $0.99 from 19 – 25 April 2019.

If it’s epic fantasy you’re after, you’ve come to the right place. Elves? Dragons? Battles? Magic? A touch of romance? It has it all.

The trilogy:

Maia returns home from a stay of absence to complete her final test to become an Elemental, only to find her world in chaos. Suddenly faced with responsibilities she thinks she is not ready for, a love she does not reciprocate, and a threat to her people that might kill them all, she may be forced to become what she was born to be – a Prime.

An army more terrible than the nation of Grildor has ever had to face has invaded the lands and is killing the Elves by the thousands. Lord Longshadow invokes the Rule of Kings and gathers the forces of Greater Grildor to their aid.
Maia, aided by her dragon Midnight and the mysterious Death Elemental, seek help of their own. All the while, Maia and Blaid must come to terms with their opposing powers and the disaster it could spell for their entire world.

The race is on to save the planet of Elveron from the invading forces. Will they be in time to stop their total annihilation?

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Darkness Falls.

by AE Faulkner
Genre: YA Dystopian

As nature tires of human destruction, two sisters must face a changing environment that stands between them and survival.

When Quinn and Riley set out on a family vacation with their parents, the trip ends before it begins. Mother Nature interferes with their plans, setting off a sequence of events that thrusts the teens into a hostile landscape.

Goodreads | Amazon

Review:

This book is right up my alley. Well done dystopian novels are highly saught after in my TBR. I love when they are unique and draw you in from start to finish. Darkness Falls is exactly that.

The characters were compelling and reacted the way I would expect them to in the situation they were in. AR Faulkner’s writing is relatable and compelling.

I highly recommend checking out Darkness Falls. It’s totally worth adding to your TBR!

Rating:

4/5☆


AE Faulkner is a young adult dystopian author. Her debut novel, Darkness Falls, is the first book in the Nature’s Fury series, which explores the Earth’s response to humans poisoning her streams, abusing her animals and destroying her beauty.

She has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Millersville University and a master’s degree in advertising, public relations & journalism from Temple University.

Although she escaped in books as a child, college textbooks sucked the fun out of reading. Years later, The Hunger Games trilogy became the spark that rekindled her love of books. After devouring that series, she quickly became captivated by dystopian novels.

After several years of reading them, she decided to take a stab at writing one that combined her love for nature with her fear of human destruction

I have read a few of K.J. McGillick’s novels. Each one has left me full of emotions and has kept me hooked from beginning to end. Trust Me is no different.

BLOG TOUR | The Secrets – Jane Adams

Hi everyone!

Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Secrets!


The Secrets (Detective Mike Croft #2) by Jane Adams

DISCOVER A CRIME THRILLER THAT WILL KEEP YOU HOLDING YOUR BREATH UNTIL THE VERY LAST PAGE

Please note this book was first published as “Cast The First Stone.

WHAT DOES HE KNOW?

Threatening phone calls, smashed windows, physical intimidation. Eric Pearson and his family have only just moved into a new home in a sleepy cul-de-sac, but they already have dangerous enemies. How could a respectable family become the focus of such hatred?

Detective Inspector Mike Croft knows the Pearson family well. Eric Pearson claims to own a journal which gives evidence of a horrifying ring of abusers. If true, it would be a high stakes case for DI Croft, and expose awful secrets that the town has buried deep.

But no one wants to believe the dark conspiracies of this friendless and bitter man.

Then a body is found on the edge of Bright’s Wood, wrapped in a black bag.

DI Croft must confront evil which threatens to rip apart everyone in the community.

EVERYONE HAS SECRETS. BUT SOME ARE SO DARK THAT PEOPLE WILL KILL TO KEEP THEM.

Praise for JANE ADAMS, author of the sensational best seller THE GREENWAY.

Few debut novels achieve this level of suspense. The Greenway lingered in my mind for days. It takes the psychological suspense novel into new realms of mystery.” Val McDermid, Manchester Evening News

A haunting debut.” Minette Walters

Compellingly told and rich with psychological insight.” Independent

Nail-biting stuff.” Ms London

An assured first novel, with a strong cast and a plot which twists and turns without a glitch.” Yorkshire Evening Post

Adams has a distinctive voice, which I predict will be heard by the majority of mystery fans.

DETECTIVE MIKE CROFT SERIES

Book 1: The Greenway

Book 2: The Secrets


Review:

The Secrets can be read as a standalone or better yet, as the second in the Detective Mike Croft series.

Jane Adams knows how to write fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat books. I love the mystery in this. All the twists and turns lead to a fantastic conclusion that I didn’t see coming.

Mike Croft is a great lead character, but the rest of the cast is just as memorable. Each with back stories and personalities unique to them.

I recommend checking this novel out. If you get a chance to read The Greenway first, it’s a fabulous series.

Rating:
4/5☆


Why do I write?

Like most writers, it’s a kind of compulsion. The stories are there and I have to try and grab hold of them and pin them onto the page. Most of the time, I enjoy the process; sometimes, I’d rather be doing just about anything else, up to and including the ironing – and I hate ironing.

I started writing when my youngest child went to school. I was incredibly lucky and my first novel, The Greenway, was picked up by Macmillan in 1994 and published in 1995.

I currently write two series; Naomi Blake and Rina Martin. Rina was a character I’d had in mind for years before committing her to paper. An elderly, ex thespian who had played the part of a popular TV detective, she had retired to the seaside and bought a boarding house for other ex performers. Rina’s feisty, no nonsense character is, I suppose, based on the rather powerful and opinionated ladies I grew up surrounded by – mother, teachers in the all girls school I attended, aunts and pseudo aunts, all of whom had opinions about everything and made sure these were unstintingly shared.
Naomi Blake, on the other hand, was the brainchild of my late agent, Bob Tanner at International Scripts. ‘You should write a blind detective,’ he said ‘ and she needs a big, black guidedog, called Napoleon’.

I thought it was a daft idea, and told him so. I just couldn’t see how to do it. But, like a lot of seemingly daft ideas, this one wormed its was into my brain and I realised he was right. It could work and so, the Naomi Blake series came into being.
I have always written in other genres too, short stories in the SF, Fantasy and Gothic Horror genre, and am working on longer projects when time allows. I also teach Creative Writing and have had the great priviligde of being a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at three different universities.

BLOG TOUR | Slumbering – C.S. Johnson

Welcome to the Slumbering blog tour! Here we have another gorgeous book, this time the first installment in a wonderful YA series, called The Starlight Chronicles by C.S. Johnson. Read on for my review, exclusive content and a chance to win a print copy of the book!


Slumbering
Publication Date: December 2014
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy/ Satire

Sixteen-year-old Hamilton Dinger leads a charmed life. He’s got the grades for the top of the class, the abilities of a star athlete and Tetris player, and the charisma to get away with anything. Everything seems to be going along perfectly, including his plans to ask out Gwen Kessler, as he enters into tenth grade at Apollo Central High School. Everything, that is, until a meteor crashes into the city, releasing the Seven Deadly Sinisters and their leader, Orpheus, from their celestial prison, and awakening Hamilton’s longtime dormant supernatural abilities. Suddenly Hamilton finds reluctantly allied with his self-declared mentor, Elysian, a changeling dragon, and Starry Knight, a beautiful but dangerous warrior, as they seek to protect the souls of Apollo City from the Sinisters and their evil intentions. Can Hamilton overcome his ignorance and narrow-mindedness to see what is truly real? Can he give up his self-proclaimed entitlement to happiness in order to follow the call of a duty he doesn’t want? More importantly, will he willingly sacrifice all he has to find out the truth?

Goodreads | Purchase


Review:

I’m just going to say it: every time I read a novel by C.S. Johnson, I’m so blown away within the first few chapters, I already know it’s going to be a 5☆ novel for me.

I am blown away by the vivid world building C.S. Johnson always manages to include. Slumbering is no different. I felt like I was transported into this story and I was witnessing the events first hand.

The characters are no different. Each with their own unique sense of personality, I felt like I knew them. Particularly, Hamilton, who reacts to situations as I would expect him to. A little bit of humor thrown in the mix adds an element to the characters that make them just a bit more complex.

I loved Slumbering. It’s definitely going in my favorite reads of 2019 and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!

5/5☆


Excerpt

Hamilton struggles with the choice to step back or embrace his supernatural powers.

“Kid!” Elysian was calling out for me. “Where are you?”

Trapped in the dark corners of my mind, I barely heard Elysian calling, but there was nothing I could do or say. It’s happening, I thought.

My powers, even though I’d never known them or even really wanted them, were surely leaving, taking hope of ever knowing the truth. My own truth was about to become a lie that would be the truth to me forever—my last defense against the relentless pursuer, the ghost who haunts me even as I try to run from him …

I don’t want this, I thought again, as I sunk further into despair. I don’t want this at all.
And yet …

There was a part of me that wished I could. I wished I could’ve wanted this. But I couldn’t. I didn’t know. I didn’t know what to do. There was nothing that I could do. I couldn’t do this.

It’s all right, something inside of me whispered. I felt the lies tangling around me, settling into my skin like new clothes. I felt my consciousness further slipping away from me, as though I were suddenly watching myself sleep. The voices, at the heart of the emptiness inside continued to whisper—comforting me, soothing me, telling me my happiness was the most important thing, the only thing …

“Kid!” Elysian called out again; this time it was louder.

Don’t listen to that ugly dragon, the voices insisted. He is full of nonsense, stories and fairy tales …

I heard Gwen scream for help again, but my relentless hesitancy refused to let me move. Time seemed to stand still, as though I was frozen. I couldn’t help it; nothing was more important to me than myself.

“Hamilton! Your friends need you!”

I cringed, torn between retreating further and going back.

Couldn’t they understand? I didn’t know who to listen to anymore! All my life, the world had said everything was relative, there were no absolutes, certainly no good or evil, there were no miracles, fate was a delusion, humans were here by accident, science was the way to see what was really true, I was in control … all these things, I’d believed, and heard, and experienced for myself … but now … now it was all circumstantial.

Either choice I went with would call for sacrifice on my part.

I started to breathe more heavily. “I … can’t do this … ”


C. S. Johnson is the award-winning, genre-hopping author of several novels, including young adult sci-fi and fantasy adventures such as the Starlight Chronicles, the Once Upon a Princess saga, and the Divine Space Pirates trilogy. With a gift for sarcasm and an apologetic heart, she currently lives in Atlanta with her family.

COVER REVEAL | The Space Between Time – Charlie Laidlaw

Book Cover

Finally, the much anticipated cover reveal of The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw! Just look at it! Totally worth the wait!

The Space Between Time

Expected Publication Date: June 20th, 2019

Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Dark Comedy

There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth…

Emma Maria Rossini appears to be the luckiest girl in the world. She’s the daughter of a beautiful and loving mother, and her father is one of the most famous film actors of his generation. She’s also the granddaughter of a rather eccentric and obscure Italian astrophysicist.

But as her seemingly charmed life begins to unravel, and Emma experiences love and tragedy, she ultimately finds solace in her once-derided grandfather’s Theorem on the universe.

The Space Between Time is humorous and poignant and offers the metaphor that we are all connected, even to those we have loved and not quite lost.

Pre-Order Here!

Great news for book bloggers! There will be a blog tour for this amazing book running the entire month of June! Click here for more details!

About the Author

download

I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault. That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father. That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste.

I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything.

I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist. I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics. I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece.

I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries. Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa. What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember

Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then. However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini.

Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa.

I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.

PUBLICATION DAY PUSH | Hate Bale – Stephanie Dagg

Hi everyone!

Today is the publication day push for Hate Bale!


Grumbling guests and escaping piglets are precisely what Martha doesn’t need. She’s already struggling to run a holiday cottage and a rather large smallholding single-handedly. Since her husband Mark died, three years ago, her rural property in France, beautiful as it is, has become an increasingly heavy millstone around her neck.

So whilst she’s horrified to stumble across a corpse at the local farm supplies shop, it does at least distract her from her own woes. Best friend Lottie, the cheese to Martha’s chalk, swoops in to offer moral support, and encourages Martha to join her in some unofficial sleuthing. Meanwhile, police officer Philippe Prudhomme, a former fellow chess-player of Mark’s, undertakes a rather more professional investigation.

However, despite everyone’s efforts the killer remains at large. And when more bodies (one and a bit, to be precise) come Martha’s way, it definitely feels like he’s closing in on her…
There’s suspense, humour and excitement in this entertaining cosy mystery set in the French countryside.

Purchase

Review:

I have decided Stephanie Dagg is the queen of cozy mysteries. Set on a farm in rural France, Hate Bale, is a wonderfully suspenseful and humorous mystery.

I love the humor in this novel. It really keeps the pace moving forward, and breaks when there needs to be suspenseful parts as well. The mystery is fantastic and I didn’t see the end coming.

I’ve grown to be a fan of Stepahnie Dagg. Her writing is great, her characters come to life on the page, and her mysteries are everything a cozy mystery fan is looking for. I highly recommend checking this one out!

I’m an English expat living in France, having moved here with my family in 2006 after fourteen years as an expat in Ireland. Taking on seventy-five acres with three lakes, two hovels and one cathedral-sized barn, not to mention an ever increasing menagerie of animals, has made for exciting times. The current array of creatures ranges from alpacas to zebra finches, with pretty much everything in-between! Before we came to France all we had was a dog and two chickens, so it’s been a steep learning curve.

I’m married to Chris and we have three bilingual TCKs (third culture kids) who are resilient and resourceful and generally wonderful.

I’m a traditionally-published author of many children’s books, and am now self-publishing too. As well as being an author, I’m also a part-time editor and, with Chris, manager of three carp fishing lakes. My hobbies are cycling, geocaching, knitting and sewing.

Hi everyone!

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Legends of Persia!

Following Alexander the Great’s army on its journey across Persia, Ashley is walking the knife edge of history. As a presumed goddess, Ashley is expected to bless crops, make sure battles are won and somehow keep herself out of the history books.

Can Ashley avoid the wrath of the Time Institute while keeping the man she loves alive?

Purchase

Review:

This is the second novel in the Time for Alexander Series. I read the first novel, and I have to say, Legends of Persia stepped up on the awesomeness of this novel.

The level of immersiveness Jennifer Macaire has been able to create is truly impressive. It’s as historically accurate as possible, and it really transport you back into the culture.

I love this plot. It’s perfectly paced and there is so much richness in the writing that draws you in. I read this in one setting because I found it so interesting and entertaining. I highly recommend checking this one out!

BLOG TOUR | Staking Cinderella – Kate Morgan

Welcome to my stop on the Staking Cinderella blog tour! Today I have a review, an exclusive excerpt, and a chance to win one of two digital copies of this very vampy book!


Staking Cinderella

Expected Publication Date: April 18th, 2019

Genre: Horror/ Vampire Romance

Gavin’s got a serious problem. A “praise Jee-sus” rich bitch caught him fanging—and banging—his Halloween date. Now she’s playing Holy Vampire Killer, and it’s ticking him off.

Since then, Gavin’s found someone better to occupy his mind and heart. Isolde—in bed, on the couch, in the shower. She has a thing for Disney princesses, but he’s willing to overlook it. Women like her only come around once or twice in five hundred years. He knows.

Then the Jesus-freak kidnaps Isolde to bait a deathtrap for Gavin. Abandoning Isolde is unthinkable, but rescuing her could mean death for both of them.

Amazon

Review:

It’s been a while since I read a vampire novel, and I’m glad Staking Cinderella was the book to get me back into the genre.

There’s a bit of humor in Kate Morgan’s writing that makes her characters that much more intriguing. They felt real. I believed Gavin was a person -well, a vampire and I liked reading from his perspective.

The plot of the novel is entertaining. There are horror elements, romance elements, some laughabledialogue. Overall, I’m a fan of Staking Cinderalla. I’m also a fan of Kate Morgan’s and this won’t be my last read from her.

Rating:
4/5☆


Excerpt:

A quintessential cowboy parked his truck in the packed community college main lot. The complete Scooby-Doo Gang walked past on his left, the Bob’s Burgers cast on his right.

He knew he should’ve eaten before coming to this Halloween party. Never go grocery shopping hungry. He was old enough to know better.

A sexy nun and a sexier nurse followed the Scooby Gang. So much exposed neck. He closed his eyes and marshaled his forces. Half an hour to accomplish his objective and he could escape home and feed.

Gavin Donne, historian, costume designer and drama instructor, exited and locked his truck. At the gym entrance he took a deep breath of night air and choked on cigarette smoke. “Fancy-boy actor’s lungs can’t take it.” Male laughter. “Don’t be an ass, Cal.” A pudgy girl patted Gavin’s back. “You okay, Mr. Donne?”
Gavin spat into the barberry bushes lining the sidewalk. “Yes, thank you, Stella. I see your brother is still trying to prove his manhood.”


Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Kate Morgan celebrates the day she jumped the wall with as much enthusiasm as her birthday. She grew up watching Hammer horror films and Scooby-Doo mysteries, which explains a whole lot. When she takes a break from inspiring nightmares, she writes ex-nun PI mysteries under her real name, Alice Loweecey. In her spare time she can be found growing vegetables in her garden and water lilies in her koi pond.

BLOG TOUR | The Worth of a Penny – Jess B Moore

Hi everyone!

Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Worth of a Penny.


Sweetheart Penelope Davies is what her daddy calls gullible, right after he told her she was stupid and worthless. With her cheek red from being slapped by him, and her heart trampled by a worthless boyfriend, she packs up and follows her half-brother to Fox River, North Carolina, in need of a fresh start.

Dominic MacKenna is the youngest of five brothers, the friendly one with a killer smile and easy laugh. His brothers are all grown up, and one by one they’re flying the nest, leaving him out of sorts and unsure of his place. Who is he if not the youngest MacKenna?

Penny falls in with the MacKenna brothers, welcomed in as family, and offered the kind of love and support she never knew existed. With a new job and a lot of determination, she is finding out what she’s capable of. The last thing she needs now is to fall in love with the most notorious flirt in town.

Dominic falls for the sweet strong girl with a penchant for random facts and quirky homemade dresses. All he wants is to show Penny how wonderful she is, how smart and funny, and how desired and loved—even if he has to do it as her friend.

Purchase

Review:

I’m in love with Jess B. Moore’s writing. It’s beautiful, serene and sweet, and makes me feel like I am part of the world. I feel as though I know the characters personally, and I’m right at home.

This book touches on sensitive topics and is filled with emotions. It is also sweet and wonderful. Everything I expected from Jess B. Moore. She has become one of my favorite authors to read, because she takes a genre I don’t read a ton of and makes me obsessed. So, thank you, Jess!

I highly recommend reading this novel. You will feel as though you know these characters and live in their world.

Rating:

5/5☆


Jess B Moore is a writer of love stories. When she’s not writing, she’s busy mothering her talented and stubborn children, reading obscene numbers of books, and knitting scarves she’ll likely never finish.

Jess lives in small town North Carolina with her bluegrass obsessed family. She takes too many pictures of her cats, thinking the Internet loves them as much as she does. She is a firm believer of swapping stories over coffee or wine, and that there should always be dark chocolate involved.

Her novels combine her interests in family, music, and small towns into thoughtful tales of growing up and falling in love.
