They travel together for work often, and they’re the best of buddies.When Rox gets thrown out of her apartment, Cash insists that she come live with him until they can find her a place because that’s what friends do.

Welcome to this Book Tour Spotlight & Giveaway  for ‘Ashes’ by Steven Manchester Book Details Genre: Fiction Published by:     The Story Plant Publication Date: February 21st 2017 Number of Pages: 260 Synopsis: Middle-aged brothers Jason and Tom Prendergast thought they were completely done with each other. Perceived betrayal had burned the bridge between them, tossing them into the icy river of estrangement. But life – and death – has a robust sense of irony, and when they learn that their cruel father has died and made his final request that they travel together across the country to spread his ashes, they have no choice but to spend a long, long car trip in each other’s company. It’s either that or lose out on the contents of the envelope he’s left with his lawyer. The trip will be as gut-wrenching as each expects it to be . . . and revealing in ways neither of them is prepared for. At turns humorous, biting, poignant, and surprisingly tender, Ashes puts a new spin on family and dysfunction with a story that is at once fresh and timelessly universal.

Her only chance of making it through is with help from her best friend, Ian. But as the study and all its hilariously awkward dates goes on, Gabby finds herself wondering what exactly this experiment is all about.

Adult Books / March 9, 2017

Songs of Insurrection (Daughter of the Dragon Throne #1) by J.C. Kang Publication date: January 6th 2017 Genres: Adult, Fantasy Princess Kaiya’s voice could charm a dragon. Had she lived when the power of music could still summon typhoons and rout armies, perhaps Cathay’s imperial court would see her as more than a singing fool. With alliances to build and ambitious lords to placate, they care more about her marriage prospects than her voice. Only the handsome Prince Hardeep, a foreign martial mystic, recognizes her potential. Convinced Kaiya will rediscover the legendary but perilous art of invoking magic through music, he suggests her voice, not her marriage, might better serve the realm. When members of the emperor’s elite spy clan– Kaiya’s childhood friend Tian and his half-elf sidekick (or maybe he’s her sidekick?)– discover mere discontent boiling over into full-scale rebellion, Kaiya must choose. Obediently wedding the depraved ringleader means giving up her music. Confronting him with the growing power of her voice could kill her. Goodreads / Amazon EXCERPT: CHAPTER 1 Not-So-Chance Meetings If marriage were a woman’s grave, as the proverb claimed, sixteen-year-old Princess Kaiya suspected the emperor was arranging her funeral. Entourage in tow, she shuffled through…

For all of you sports fans, here is a humorous romantic, athletic tale! Be sure to enter the Giveaway at the end of this posting. Falling for Boston by Leslie Kate Publication date: October 13th 2016 Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance As the youngest of four, Dylan has always been the baby. But don’t let that fool you; she’s not your average baby sister. Growing up with three older brothers left Dylan with a lack of femininity and in its place, a real guy’s girl personality. Sports, beer, burping, you name it; but don’t even think about going near her feet with a pair of heels. When Dylan meets Tyler Vaughn, the famous and devastatingly attractive football superstar at work one morning, she’s thrilled by his good stats, not his good looks. But the wide receiver—and sweet romantic—throws her for a loop when he pursues her despite what she knows is missing, her feminine charm. Now Dylan must reconcile the fact that this guy may actually like her, and even scarier, she may like him back. Dylan speaks sports and sarcasm fluently but romance, now that’s something completely foreign to her. What’s an emotionally-allergic guy’s girl supposed to do with a…

Today Amanda McCrina and Month9Books are revealing the cover and first chapter for BLOOD ROAD which releases April 25, 2017! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to be one of the first readers to receive a eGalley!! A quick note from the author: The funny thing about historical fiction—or historical fantasy, in this case—is that it often reveals more about the present than it does about the past. It provides a lens through which we can understand and contextualize our own experiences. BLOOD ROAD is a tribute to my love of Roman history, but it’s also very much a product of its time. It’s a story about corruption and injustice and empire and a young soldier who stands up and resists, and writing it gave me the opportunity to ask hard questions about my own present and the part I play.   Title: BLOOD ROAD  Author: Amanda McCrina Pub.

WELCOME TO THIS BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY (U.S./Can. only, sorry) FOR…. Pistols and Petticoats 175 Years of Lady Detectives in Fact and Fiction by Erika Janik March 2nd 2017 Book Blast Synopsis: A lively exploration of the struggles faced by women in law enforcement and mystery fiction for the past 175 years In 1910, Alice Wells took the oath to join the all-male Los Angeles Police Department. She wore no uniform, carried no weapon, and kept her badge stuffed in her pocketbook. She wasn’t the first or only policewoman, but she became the movement’s most visible voice. Police work from its very beginning was considered a male domain, far too dangerous and rough for a respectable woman to even contemplate doing, much less take on as a profession. A policewoman worked outside the home, walking dangerous city streets late at night to confront burglars, drunks, scam artists, and prostitutes. To solve crimes, she observed, collected evidence, and used reason and logic—traits typically associated with men. And most controversially of all, she had a purpose separate from her husband, children, and home. Women who donned the badge faced harassment and discrimination. It would take more than seventy years for women to…

And only to fall for cousin Zoey’s bandmate, Darragh, the guy who is first her friend, then her enemy and later something much more complicated—the guy she can say anything to, the guy who makes every inch of her feel wide awake in a way…

Thanks to  for presenting this Book Tour & Giveaway. Book Description: What if you could choose your heaven now? Go on a celestial shopping trip of sorts? Thirty-five-year-old Vivienne does just that, as she lies dying in the ICU; a fatal walk into the path of a truck. In her final week of life, Vivienne treks through the Heavens of a priest, a best friend, a homeless child, and a lover who never was. Vivienne’s guardian angel, Noah, who may just be her soul mate, escorts her through selections of Heavens and through the confusion Vivienne experiences as she flounders between a doubt of life and the certainty of death. Although her visits to varied afterlives provide peace and beauty, choosing proves not so easy: Vivienne’s love for her young son and her earthly father pull her from her colorful journey—and from her divine love of Noah. The nature of love, the variety and magic of life, unending hope, and the importance of saying goodbye are central to this…

The Daughter of Ishmael by Diane Tolley Blog Tour!
Adult Books , Young Adult Books / January 10, 2017

This is written primarily for an LDS audience. Without a knowledge of the Book of Mormon, this story will nothave the same effectiveness as those who have an understanding of who the characters are. I want to thank the author and  for presenting this Book Tour.           About the book: Growing up around prophets and prophecies, Hannah and her sisters are excited to be betrothed to sons of Lehi and to journey to the promised land. But now with her people dividing, Hannah must choose between her faith and her family. Should she follow Nephi again, or stay with her husband, Lemuel, and her son in sin and misery? This compelling novel tells the familiar scripture story from an illuminating new perspective. MY REVIEW: This story takes the reader through the author’s imagination of what the daughters of Ishmael lives were like – especially that of Hannah. It explains in further details the concept of how Lehi’s family and Ishmael’s possibly interacted before Lehi’s sons were sent back to persuade Ishmael to join them in their trek to the “Promised Land”. The author has created an entertaining and interesting tale of how it must have been. Along…

HAPPY 2017 EVERYONE! WE ARE SO ANXIOUS FOR BETTER YEAR!

Hi, ALL! 2017 IS GOING TO BE A MUCH BETTER YEAR! 2015 & 2016 has been extremely challenging years for my family and I, as I know it has been for many others. I am deeply humbled and apologize for the effect it has had on my blog efficiency and Giveaways. I can only promise that will do everything in my power to not allow that to happen this year or ever again! I appreciate how so many have forgiven my lack of efficiency and my problems and still faithfully support me on my site. I cannot tell you how much your support on my blog site means to me. Although I am not always able to answer all of your comments, I do enjoy reading them and will answer as often as I can. You are all so great! This year we are going to start implementing a few “live” interviews integrated with written ones. We have run into a few “glitches” but hope to have them “ironed out” soon. We hope our fourth year -starting in June- will offer more attractions still. THERE WILL ALSO BE MANY MORE CHILDREN’S BOOK REVIEWS AND GIVEAWAYS! We are doing all we can to come…
