Alexander Drake new cover

Alexander Drake's Extraordinary Pursuit

Meet Alexander Drake, a curious young man living in a drab, oversized mansion with his secretive father. He spent his days playing alone. In the back of his mind he wondered what happened to his mother, and why his father was tight-lipped about the past; but secrets have a way of getting out. It all started with a stay at his grandmother’s cottage. Alexander found strange clues tucked away in his father’s old bedroom. With a mysterious key and several maps in his pack he set off on an innocent search for answers about his family. When he discovered a secret passageway the search took a dramatic turn. He suddenly worried about what was searching for him. Alexander was being hunted by a sorcerer from his father’s past. Answers lead to more questions and the journey of his life. Join Alexander for a thrilling adventure in Azra’s Pith, a place of beauty and magic… but beware—something evil lurks in the shadows.

General drake new cover

The Return of General Drake

When Alexander arrived in Verhonia, something went terribly wrong. A dark spell delivered from the mountains of Acadia sent him on a dangerous journey in the middle of the night. As he marched into the mountains, the great city of Verhonia was ambushed and burned to the ground by Roman's army of vicious giant murks. With the safety of the realm in jeopardy, General John William Drake was asked to come back to Azra's Pith. He swore he would never return. But after discovering his son was under a spell and in the grips of a dark sorcerer, he had no choice. Things take a wild turn in the mountains, with runaways, a hungry wolf and a mysterious, young empyrean wizard thrown into the adventure. A tight race against time and evil is in full swing. With faith and a little magic, they just might come out on top.

Author Elizabeth Parkinson-Bellows

Being the frizzy-haired tomboy with buck teeth gave me a slight case of shyness as a kid. A colorful imagination meant escape and adventure at the drop of a hat. Over the years I learned that the insecurities I carried around were a waste of time. I still prefer a football game to a manicure any day of the week. That indispensable imagination has found its way into my writing providing a sense of joy and a true purpose.

REVIEW: Pretty Dark Nothing by Heather L. Reid

Pretty Dark Nothing
by
Published by:  Month9Books
Release Date:  April 23, 2013
Source:  Publisher via Netgalley

Goodreads Summary:
It’s been twenty three days since Quinn has slept for more than minutes at a time. Demons have invaded her dreams, stalking her, and whispering of her death. The lack of sleep and crippling fear are ruining her life. Energy drinks and caffeine pills don’t make a dent. When Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. The demons are determined to keep them apart, and Aaron from discovering the secret locked away in his memory. Together, they could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.

My Thoughts:
Pretty Dark Nothing is a very dark, emotional book. There's nothing light and fluffy about it.
This book really got to me. Actually, the main character Quinn got to me.  So much has happened to this poor girl.  And then the other main character, Aaron comes into play, and he has even more issues.  I love Aaron though.  He is so selfless.  He just can't seem to catch a break.  I had to keep reading to see what would happen next with these two.  Then the ending came and I got so confused and pissed off.  I don't want to say any more about it for fear of giving it away.  It just felt like the last 5%(I was reading on my kindle) was a last minute thought and thrown together.  Maybe it was just me though.
Okay, I didn't like the ending, but the rest of the book was great!  You know it's a good book when you feel the characters emotions.  I hope Heather will be writing more!

Sweet Mercy Blog Tour: Review and Meet the Cast!



Prohibition….Gangsters….Bootleggers….Al Capone….and a 17-year-old girl named Eve Marryat who, in the tumultuous summer of 1931, learns the meaning of….


Sweet Mercy


Sweet Mercy
Sweet Mercy
by Ann Tatlock
Paperback, 400 pages
Expected publication: May 1 2013 by Bethany House Publishers

Premise:

When Eve Marryat’s father is laid off from the Ford Motor Company in 1931, he is forced to support his family by leaving St. Paul, Minnesota, and moving back to his Ohio roots. Eve’s uncle Cyrus has invited the family to live and work at his Marryat Island Ballroom and Lodge. 

St. Paul seemed like a haven for gangsters, and Eve had grown fearful of living there. At seventeen, she considers her family to be “good people.” They aren’t lawbreakers and criminals like so many people in her old neighborhood. Thrilled to be moving to a “safe haven,” Eve is blissfully unaware that her uncle’s lodge is a transfer station for illegal liquor smuggled from Canada.

Eve settles in to work and makes new friends, including an enigmatic but affecting young man. But when the reality of her situation finally becomes clear, Eve is faced with a dilemma. How can she ignore what is happening right under their very noses? Yet can she risk everything by condemning the man whose love and generosity is keeping her and her family from ruin?



My thoughts:  Sweet Mercy is a coming of age story set in the time of Prohibition.  eve Marryat moves with her parent's to her uncle's lodge after her father is laid off from Ford.  Eve is definitely a smart cookie and starts picking up on weird happenings.  I found Eve to be a naive goody goody, but I'm guessing that's how 17 year olds were back then.  But I loved the character and world building in Sweet Mercy.  I think Ann Tatlock did a phenomenal job in that respect.  I don't see that very often.  I also find it fun to be reading and come across brand names snuck in here and there.  This was an easy and fun read.  It was smooth without jumping all around.  There were a few surprises throughout the book that made me want to keep reading.  Overall, this was a fantastic book and I will be seeking out more of Ann's books.



Ann TatlockAnn Tatlock is the author of the Christy Award-winning novel Promises to Keep. She has also won the Midwest Independent Publishers Association "Book of the Year" in fiction for both All the Way Home and I'll Watch the Moon.Her novel Things We Once Held Dear received a starred review from Library Journal and Publishers Weekly calls her "one of Christian fiction's better wordsmiths, and her lovely prose reminds readers why it is a joy to savor her stories." Ann lives with her husband and daughter in Asheville, North Carolina.

David's Song Taken from the book cover: Annie only ever really loved two men in her life. One broke her heart, the other married her. Four children and fifteen years later, Annie’s marriage is in jeopardy. Money is tight and her husband questions the very foundation of their relationship. When Annie is unexpectedly given the opportunity to see the young man who broke her heart — a man who is now a megastar in the music industry — Annie is faced with choices. Choices that will determine what is of more value — a second chance at lost love and unfulfilled dreams or commitment, trust, and love built on years of experience. A psychologically subtle, yet compelling tale about how the instinct and need for love overcomes self-doubt and personal inadequacy.

Terra Blog Tour Grand Finale!!!


On Tour with Prism Book Tours...



gretchen-001Hello there! My name is Gretchen Powell. I am 24 years old, half-Chinese, and the owner of two adorable miniature schnauzers. I am an occasional drinker of classy wines, and I wrote a book.
By day, I work for a government contractor in our nation’s capital.
By night, I binge on episodes of Doctor Who and sleep fitfully.
Sometime in the mid-afternoon, I write another blog called Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! about weight loss, food, fitness, and my life.
Some of my favorite things include polka dots, Harry Potter, pretty much any TV show that airs on Thursday nights (yep, I'm talking Vampire Diaries #notashamed), and playing the ukulele.



Terra (Terrestrials, #1)Terra
by Gretchen Powell
Paperback, 286 pages
Published December 12th 2012 by Hopewell Media

Premise:

A broken and desolate Earth. A young girl struggling to survive. A lost boy with a powerful secret.

A discovery that will change everything.

In the distant wake of a plague that has decimated the Earth's population, humanity is split in two: The rich and powerful live in skycities that float overhead, while those who remain on the ground have gathered in settlements strewn across a dying planet. Eighteen-year-old Terra Rhodon is a terrestrial--a denizen of the barren groundworld--who makes her living as a scav. Long abandoned by her father, her caregivers gone, Terra supports herself and her younger brother, Mica, by scouring the earth for discarded scraps and metals to recycle for profit. One day, while on a routine scavenging run, she discovers something that shocks her home settlement of Genesis X-16. When the value of her discovery is revealed, Terra's world is turned upside down.

Terra suddenly finds herself asking questions no one will answer. Her search for the truth leads her to Adam--a beguiling skydweller unlike any she has ever met. But Adam has secrets and a quest of his own, and with him by her side, the world Terra thought she knew begins to unravel. Soon her discoveries unearth a terrifying conspiracy that has the potential to shatter everything--a revelation that will test the bonds of loyalty, family, and love.




Intro by Gretchen Powell:

In Terra's world, resources are scarce and many people make their living as "scavs," hunting for scraps to turn in on Collection Day in exchange for credits. For this tour, YOU are a scav, and there are scraps all over the blogosphere for you to find! On each participating blog, there will be one of 9 possible questions. Answer the question to receive a keyword that will get you an extra entry in the awesome giveaway!


Our Scavenger Hunt Tour:

A Tiffyfit's Reading Corner - Review:
The characters were well-developed and the lead protagonist, Terra, was not whiny, angsty, or annoying.
Pause Time - Review:
I loved Adam from the first moment
Total Book Geek - Excerpt #1

Man, those are come beautiful brown eyes you got!

Mel's Shelves - Review
the book is full of twists and turns I didn't see coming--a big plus for me!
I Am a Reader, Not a Writer - Excerpt #2

You find yourself in Genesis X-16. What is your eye color?

Lovin' Los Libros - Review
If you are a fan of Hunger Games, Divergent, or even The Maze Runner series, I think you will really enjoy Terra.
fuonlyknew - Excerpt #3

You found something while scavenging in the fields! Quick, hide it in your bag! What is it?

The Quiet Concert - Review
Terra had to be my favorite character. She is a strong, stubborn, protective girl who will do what it takes to protect her family and find answers.
Jessie's Book Place - Excerpt #4

Uh-oh, rain's about to start. What do you do?



Christy's Cozy Corner - Review:
 Nothing in the book felt unnecessary. No unnecessary conversations or characters.

The Reading Diaries - Excerpt #5
 & 5 Star Review:
WOW!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE TERRA!!!!!Such a fantastic story I finished in one afternoon unable to put it down. Terra is a brilliant mix between Dystopia and Sci fi in my opinion the story just flows beautifully.
You've scored some steel to buy some grub. Where in Genesis X-16 are you shopping today?

LDS & Lovin' It - Review
And while the world she creates is a made up one, I saw distinct parallels to our own world and the heartbreaking poverty that exists here as well as the developing environmental problems that clearly led to the devastation of Terra's world.
Tressa's Wishful Endings - Review
I also really liked Adam! He's got bright blue eyes, a lopsided-smile, is intelligent and caring. Though he has his imperfections too. You know that he is keeping something from Terra, but I didn't realize what it was until Terra finds out herself.
Colorimetry - Excerpt #6

Choose yer rations!

Living a Goddess Life - Lemon Berry Preserves Recipe:


& Review:
It's very rare, in my experience, to find an indie book that is as good as anything that's gone through a corporate editing process. In fact, it may very well be the Holy Grail of small press books. And yet, on her first lap out of the gate, Gretchen Powell has birthed a fantastic book, self-published. So....consider me a fan!

Passion and Life - Excerpt #7

You were born and bred in Genesis X-16. What’s your job?

Bookworm Lisa -  Review
The ending left me looking frantically for when the second book is to be released.
Blood, Sweat & Books - Review
Terra was a solid science fiction/Dystopian with detailed world building, plenty of action and enjoyable secondary characters.
Marked by Books - Excerpt #8

Since school on the groundworld isn’t based on grade level or age, it’s all about how motivated you are to pass your primary, secondary, and tertiary examinations. Where do you think you’d fit in?

My Seryniti - Review
 The writing is so good that you are transported to this other world and when something happens I constantly found myself gasping aloud, knowing that the crap was going to hit the fan, but not know why!
Mortality Bites - Excerpt #9

You’re a skydweller who’s been assigned to a job on the groundworld (much to your annoyance.) Are you a…

Getting Your Read On - Review

The Broke Book Bank - Intervew!! (Answer to #10)
I guess you can kind of think of them kind of like the reorganized continents of today. When the world fell apart and the Tribunal took over, things changed.
Underground takes Terra out of Genesis X-16 and out into the world. If you were her, where would you want to go most?

Book Blast: Captive Spirits by M.A. Adair-Win $50 Amazon GC or Paypal

 
Captive Spirits Aztar is a planet where no one remembers a time of peace. Fear of those who wield a mystical cruelty holds people as CAPTIVE SPIRITS. All that remains is the waning belief in a savior who will someday come to restore peace to a blood soaked land. Zmeria, an ancient text recovered, brings a Prophecy to life. The leaders of each Region come together with a plan to reunite Aztar's divided people and make way for their savior. They arm themselves with the recently discovered revelation of peace long past. A dream is born and legends revived as Aztar’s people determine to fight the evil and Reclaim Aztar. The Evil’s grasp is strong on the CAPTIVE SPIRITS of Aztar.

Si, the firstborn son of the house of Volcum, is well known for valor and victories in battle. A kingdom must be established. As the center of his kingdom, Si Volcum decreed an ancient, long deserted castle far to the north that contained the lost records of Aztar’s forgotten glory. He accepted his chosen bride, Alexis, unseen from a house as old as his own. Si ruled and the land prospered for fifteen years while evil silently waited. The King did not know when evil struck it would be personally against him or that the price would be so high. The people of Aztar chose well in their King. Si will not hesitate. The King will pay the price. From his love and chosen path, the Saga of Aztar begins with the legend of her first King, Si Volcum. “Reclaim Aztar,” will be their battle cry.
