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…

England, 1857 The British aristocracy is an inflexible judge. And for Amala, a lovely young Indian woman, that judgment is most keenly felt. Raised from a child by the wealthy Hepworth family following the murder of her parents, Amala grew up alongside the Hepworth’s own daughter, Katarina, and was loved as both sister and daughter. The family is part of the charmed circle of the upper class, but Amala’s place in society is tenuous. As an Indian woman, her life is marked by a sense of otherness and voices of prejudice. So when she embarks upon a sweet acquaintance with Henry Breckenridge, a white Englishman, Amala is both elated and terrified. She knows first-hand the opposition that an interracial couple would face, and courtship with Henry could destroy his standing in society. Determined to spare the reputations of both Henry and her sister Katarina, Amala flees England with the hope that an extended trip will allow her time to heal her broken heart. But she never imagined the repercussions of that decision, and…

    Today Jamie Zakian and Month9Books are revealing the cover and first chapter for PROJECT EMERGENCE which releases March 14, 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:   I’ve always dreamed of writing an epic sci-fi thriller. I knew I wanted it to involve a group of teens leaving a dead Earth to start new lives on a terra formed Mars, but I didn’t have any ideas on how to make the plot exciting. Then, a song I never heard before played on my Pandora app. Escape by Rogue. As that song blasted through my headphones, the entire story that is Project Emergence streamed through my mind like a movie trailer. So, I went straight to work. It took months of frantic writing, almost a year of editing, and a mini rewrite, but that moment of inspiration became my first YA novel.   Project Emergence is a fast-paced thrill ride across the stars. It shows the extent people will go to uphold their beliefs, and that love can overcome any evil. On to the reveal!    Title: PROJECT EMERGENCE  Author: Jamie…

Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time. But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn’t even begin to apply. Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own. It was supposed to be a vacation. It’s turning out to be a whole lot more. My Review: Chloe’s overly strict parents had finally gone too far!…

Uncategorized / November 25, 2016

     Thank you Cedar Fort    for presenting this Book Tour!   About the book: Much to her mother’s annoyance, Julia North can’t catch a husband. Nearing the end of her third London season, Julia is jilted. Again! Constantly wondering what it is about her that drives the gentlemen away, Julia leaves London to visit a distant cousin for a couple of months. She is hoping to forget about husband hunting for a time, but she inadvertently finds herself in competition for Henry Chamberlain, the most desirable gentleman in Somersetshire. Marriage wouldn’t seem so detestable if she could marry him. But every young lady has the same dream of capturing his attention, so Julia knows she doesn’t have a chance. What she doesn’t know is that her desire to avoid Henry’s attention is the very thing that has caught it, but it’ll take some effort on Henry’s part to convince Julia of that.   MY REVIEW: What was wrong with Julia? She was as attractive as any other girl, but this was her third season and still no respectable proposal. She had lost three suitors within a four month period. It was humiliating. Now her sister is engaged in her first…

On the isolated desert island of Shiara, dying young is inevitable. The clan comes before self, and protecting her home means Khya is a warrior above all else.

But I remember glancing over at my mom and dad again and again as we walked, thinking that both of their faces had changed. It’s tough to describe. Their features had gotten sort of hard. They looked a lot like the carved stone faces on some of the buildings in our neighborhood. Anyway, I pretended that nothing was wrong and forgot about it until it was time to start planning our summer vacation. Here’s the thing…. I love going to the seashore more than almost anything in the whole world. Every summer for as long as…

The Echoing Book Tour! Review by LAWonder10
Uncategorized , Young Adult Books / August 12, 2016

              About the book: Rylee has an unusual gift. It brings good luck to those who are kind to her and misfortune to those who are not–at least, that’s what the crazy woman in the woods tells her. But Rylee doesn’t believe it until strange coincidences start happening to her classmates and friends. Her gift may not be a matter of luck but of life and death. My Review: Although Rylee didn’t find making friends easily, her one true friend, Shyler, was positively a jewel! She always found the positive in even the most impossible situations. Her other true friend was two years older, Merritt, but for a few years, their paths had gone separate ways. Now he was a Senior and she figured he was no longer interested in being friends. Rylee was shy whereas Shyler and Merritt were confident and outgoing…her opposites.Still, Shyler was the most devoted friend one could ask for. Although Merritt and Rylee no longer hung out together, he had always acknowledged her when he passed by…He never seemed to ignore her or acted like she was “below” him. The two years difference in age just sent them on…

I am so far behind! I am sorry, dear followers for my lack of professionalism this year! I have survived my 20-year-old grandson’s suicide and the stress the county put us through by refusing to give us a date to release his body for a memorial. Finally, after over three weeks they gave us a date of another three and a half weeks! It was finally held. I had a severe reaction to the devastation of that besides four other deaths this year of people very close to me.

Voice of Freedom (Against All Enemies) by H.L. Wegley Book Review – by LAWonder10!

I am sure many of you will remember this book from a recent Blog Hop Giveaway. Since this is a very trying time in the world today, my thoughts have been heavily on the preservation of our great nation of The United States and its Constitution which is daily being destroyed. This book is the 2nd in a series by H.L Wegley. I enjoy reading this series so much! Nothing is lost in the action and reality, although it is so “cleanly” written. It is what is very close to what IS BEGINNING to happen in the U.S. and other nations of the world today and what CAN happen if people do not become more aware and involved! Below is my review. I highly recommend this series to all! Voice of Freedom (Against All Enemies #2)  by H.L. Wegley  Paperback, 360 pages Published May 9th 2016 by Trinity Press International All eyes are on America as the nation writhes under a tyrant’s grip.

Today I Just Want To Wish ALL Americans a Happy 4th of July!! –
Uncategorized / July 4, 2016

I honor of the many who valiantly fought, sacrificed and even died so that future generations would enjoy freedom,  liberty in the pursuit of happiness and prosperity! Honorable men frequently met, debated and prayed over a Divine Constitution for these great United States. The Constitution was divinely created…it is not old fashioned nor unrealistic! Sadly, most Americans who enjoy these freedoms and protection of the Constitution, have never read it through, have no idea what it states, nor give it the honor and respect it deserves! Our own government leaders abuse it and make laws conflicting with it, plus, ignore laws which protects the people. The original creators of this amazing document never intended for the elected officials to greedily receive outlandish profit from serving the people! Most politicians have incredible wealth before getting elected. The Senators, Representatives, Judicial authorities and especially the presidency make more money each year than most Americans will make in several years!..We had no say in it! Even worse, they will continue to receive such large amount of income for the rest of their retiring days!!! With all their retirement money, we could eliminate the national debt quite quickly! We, the people, have nobody else…
