Prodigal and Riven Book Blitz!

 

Book blitzes are so much fun!  What is a book blitz?  It’s when a publicity company or the publicity branch of a publishing company arranges for there to be multiple blogs all posting about a brand new or already published book all on the same day.  Some times a mix of online and in-person appearances may occur too; but just like a blitzkrieg, it’s a lighting fast zip that zaps a book and an author into the public’s mind.

Prodigal-Riven-Blitz-Banner

Today we are happy to participate in the Prodigal and Riven book blitz and to help Tyler H. Jolley and Sherry D. Ficklin create a buzz about their book.

Tyler_and_Sherry

Sherry D. Ficklin is a full time writer from Colorado where she lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and house guests. She can often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she’s on deadline at which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is only seen in blurry photographs. She is the author of several YA novels ranging from contemporary romance to science fiction. In her spare time she co-hosts the Pop Lit Divas radio show and is constantly trying to take over the world.

Tyler Jolley was born in the era of the Star Wars and the Indiana Jones sagas. He has been enamored with science fiction and adventure stories ever since. In order to support his hobby of writing he decided to pursue dentistry. He graduated from Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine in 2002. He then completed a four year orthodontic and periodontic residency at the University of Pennsylvania. In June 2006, he opened a private practice, Jolley Smiles, in Grand Junction, Colorado.Snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking, fly fishing, bird hunting, camping, hiking, and backpacking are the things he enjoys doing with his family. He also enjoys lecturing internationally on temporary orthodontic implants. Some of his journal articles have also been published in the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics. However, his true passion has always been fiction writing.When life gets stressful he escapes to unseen worlds to find relaxation. His career has been the vehicle to let him write without worry. He finds inspiration from most of his adolescent patients. He continues to dream up fun and thrilling books to this day.

The Book (dum dum dum!!!!!)

Prodigal-and-Riven

Is that not a cool cover?  It makes you want to buckle up boots or something!  Here’s a synopsis of this really neat Young Adult novel.

Welcome to the TIME WAR

STEIN has been with the Hollows for as long as she can remember. Taken as a child, she has no memories of her past—and that’s always been fine by her. Until the day she stumbles across a hidden journal containing the devastating truth about her paternity. Now everything she thought she knew—and everyone she thought she could trust—has changed. The truth about who she is and where she came from is a secret so deep, it will rock the Hollows and the Tesla Institute alike.

ETHAN is left with a serious problem after what should have been a routine mission. He’s fractured—a break between mind and body that leaves him at the mercy of his Rifter abilities, which are quickly tearing him apart. He will have to trust the only person who might know how to fix him, a mysterious Rifter named Stewart Stills, who seems to have a special connection with the time stream.

Every week I publish this Friday post so that you have access to new free or cheap reading material.  But have any of you ever contemplated why authors offer their books for free or ridiculously reduced prices?  There are several reasons.  The number one reason is to connect with old and new readers.  If a long time reader takes advantage of the deal, then it’s a way for the author to thank them for their support.  If a new reader takes advantage of the deal, then it’s a way for the author to “pre-pay” them, in a way, for their future support.  The free books allow people to sample an author before they make a more expensive purchase like an omnibus set.   Any way that you look at it, free and reduced books are a gift from the author to you.  With that said, if you do take advantage of the deal, you should thank the author by leaving him or her an honest and polite review on the site where you took advantage of the deal.  Those reviews mean a lot to the authors.  It helps them not only gain future sales of books, but it also helps them gain publishing contracts.

Chasing Midnight Book Blitz!!!

 

Chasing-Midnight-Blitz-Banner

Chasing Midnight, by Ranae Glass, is the perfect read for those spring nights terrorized by thunderstorms!  Just wrap up in a comfy blanket and enjoy the ghost story.  And the best part?  The book comes out today!
I ducked behind the brick wall just before a beer bottle whizzed past my head, exploding into shards of brown glass behind me.

            “You have got to be kidding me,” I yelled, and peeked over the wall. He was running. I caught sight of him just as he rounded the far corner of the alley. “Get back here, Gallas!”

            I didn’t think he would actually take me seriously enough to listen, so I was stunned at his decision to take off rather than stand his ground and fight. I was maybe 130 lbs. soaking wet, and a head shorter than him to boot. Maybe my reputation was finally preceding me. I smirked at the idea as I bolted over the top of my cover, chasing after him.

            At the end of the alley there was a tall barbed wire topped fence. The sound of my boot heels hitting the pavement echoed down the dark street. He must have looked up and saw the fence because he turned, bursting through the back door of the antique shop at the end of the alley. I cussed and backtracked. Thank God I was familiar enough with these back streets to know where most of the entrances would exit. Running to the front I arrived at the glass picture window just as Dave Gallas, parole violator and accused hit and run driver, threw himself into the window from the inside, breaking through in a shower of clear glass. I shrieked and collapsed downward, instinctively covering my head with my arms. He leapt over me and kept running.

            Aside from a few small scratches, I didn’t feel any severe pain from more wounds. I wasn’t planning for Gallas to be so lucky. Out of breath and patience I stood, watching him run into the night. Not human, I realized. Besides the idiocy of crashing through a plate glass window and taking off without hesitation or harm—which any meth head could manage—his gait gave him away. It looked almost fluid, as if at any moment he’d lean forward and run like an animal on all four limbs.

            With a sigh that contained more than a little satisfaction, I drew the small silver whistle from under my red t-shirt, stuffed it between my lips and blew. Instantly Gallas clutched his hands to his ears and pitched to the side, falling into the middle of the street. I kept blowing as I jogged up to him.

            Just as I reached him, I heard some commotion and turned my head to see that we were less than a block from Xavier’s seedy club, the Painted Lady. The bouncer at the door was mimicking Gallas’ stop, drop, and roll impression. Two men who were probably vampires rushed out of the club. Of course. It might not affect them the same way, but with their superior hearing, they could at least hear the dog whistle. I stopped blowing as they helped the burly Were to his feet. He pointed to where I stood over Gallas. Shit. I was about to have company. With fangs.

 Company with fangs!!!!!  Pull that blanket tighter around you!

Chasing-Midnight (1)

 

Here’s a little bit more about Chasing Midnight: 

Isabel Stone’s life is far from normal. She’s a girl with problems—vampire problems to be specific and, now, she also has one ticked-off specter on her hands. Approached by a childhood friend and medium, Isabel agrees to look into the murder of a local girl, only to wind up inhabited by the solitary witness—a centuries-old ghost who is all too happy to piggyback along in Isabel’s body, and she’s not leaving until the culprit is behind bars.

With the help of her partner, Shane, and her crazy family, Isabel struggles to get to the truth, unmask a killer, and deal with her growing feelings for not one, but two, of the sexy, undead men vying for her heart. Just when things are finally falling into place, a huge revelation takes her out of the frying pan… and straight into the fire.

Here’s the novel stats:

Now presenting: Avenging!!!!!

Avenging-Blitz-Banner

So darling readers, I am so happy to present to you the long awaited third book in the Rising series: Avenging!!!!  We are very excited to introduce you to Holly Kelly’s newest work!

Here’s a sneak peak:

“What about Nicole? I trust that you’re treating a woman better than you’re treating me. She’d better be well cared for.”

“And if she isn’t?” Hector raised an eyebrow and smirked.

Triton narrowed his eyes. “Then I will grant each of you immortality.”

Confusion flashed across Hector’s face, and he barked out a laugh, “Why would you do that? Immortality is a gift, not a curse.”

“For the Pelagi, it would be a curse. For after I grant you immortality, I will chain each of you to the walls of this dungeon and leave you to suffer for all eternity. I’d imagine after the first week, your stomach will scream for food and your lips will crack and bleed from lack of moisture. You can’t imagine the desperation you’ll feel to have even a drop of water touch your tongue.

“But that’s not the worst of it. I’ve seen a few rats around here. Do you know what will happen to you when the rats realize you are helpless to defend against them?”

Hector frowned.

“They’ll begin to eat you. They’ll start with your toes, stripping them down to the bones. Then they will climb up your body, biting away chunks of flesh along the way. I imagine the thing they will enjoy most will be your moist, juicy eyes: eating away at them until they are nothing but empty, bloody sockets. You will feel each bite slice through your skin, each tug as they pull at the muscle and wrench the tendons away from your bones. Your suffering will be tremendous, but you will be helpless to stop them. And then, once they’ve had their fill, the rats may leave for a time. As an immortal, your flesh will re-grow. The pain of your open wounds will fade; you will be whole once more—until the rats come to feed again.

“And again. And again.”

Hector’s face drained of color. Horror reflected in his eyes.

“Think on this as you decide how to treat the woman I love.”

 Ohhh!  What is going to happen next?  Who are Triton and Nicole?  Well, there’s only one solution!  Go buy the book!  And this is no tease, because the book is available today!

Here’s a little bit more from the publisher, Clean Teen Publishing:

Two thousand years ago, King Triton witnessed the slaughter and total annihilation of his merchildren. He vowed then and there to never again father a child. Powerful and eternally youthful, Triton was no stranger to seduction. But his resolve was unwavering—until he met Nicole. Unable to resist the human woman, he found himself swept up in her arms. When he finally came to his senses, he abandoned her to return to his refuge in the sea.

Twenty years later, he comes face to face with his daughter. Triton is both thrilled and frightened to learn he’s a father. Meeting the child he never knew fills a void in his life. But at the same time, he once again finds his heart at risk. Even more terrifying, he’s forced to admit he’s still in love with Nicole. Gathering his courage, he leaves the sea to seek her out. But the pain he caused is not easily forgotten. And mending broken hearts should be the least of his worries. The elements are in commotion, threatening the utter destruction of mankind. And much to the sea god’s surprise, the human woman he loves may be the key to saving them all.
