One city of two million people and only three months to find her.
What are his chances?

When Isabel Antunes is hit by a man on a bike, she doesn’t expect to see him again. But on Monday at work, she learns her boss just hired him. Despite the guy’s repeated assurances to the contrary, she feels he’s a threat to her position of director, and she won’t hand it over without a fight. As if that’s not enough, he’s a member of the same church she joined a few months ago and she can’t get away from him on the weekends either.
Simon Ackerley is in Lisbon, Portugal, as a consultant for an English-only private academy. He doesn’t speak any Portuguese but he’s enjoying the city and his new job, despite a co-worker who’s bent on treating him as the enemy.
But when he discovers a clue to her identity, Simon realizes there is so much more at stake than just a pleasant working environment. If only he could tell her the reason why he’s come, he’s sure Isabel would treat him differently. But he knows she’s not ready for the truth.

Monday, August 29th, 2016

 

Synopsis:
Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four- year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.

Red roses, a reminder of her parent’s; killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her Life.

Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-colored bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighboring police officer.

Will the police catch the illusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?

Interview:

  1. Describe yourself in 50 words or less. Wife, author, equestrian, dedicated, kind, loving, loyal, and fun.
  2. What do you love most in the world? I love my husband. He’s my rock and my best friend. He’s my dream come true.
  3. What do you fear most? Spiders. Yuck, they are creepy and scary. And there is a chapter in Bleeding Hearts with those same creepy crawlies in it.
  4. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it? My largest unfulfilled dream is traveling the world. I’ve always wanted to visit several countries and I’m saving my pennies to do just that one day.
  5. What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done? The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do was writing this book. It takes a lot of dedication to finish writing and work to publish a book.
  6. Now that we’ve gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it’s yours. What’s your story?

Happily Ever After

I remembered opening my eyes for the first time that morning. The sun shined bright through the curtains and coffee filled the spacious room. It was my wedding day. After years of promises and plans, the day was here. I pushed the comforter off my legs and stood from my hotel bed; I was really getting married. My mom and sisters rushed into the room, calling out congratulations with wide smiles and busy hands. They bustled around me, pulling me in all directions, waiting to get ready for my day.

Shortly after we all dressed and ate breakfast, we made our way to the salon for hair and makeup. The day had not flown by like I thought it would. Everything was scheduled and timed perfectly. The only thing I needed left to do was put my dress on and walk down the aisle with my dad. Hours later, pictures with my bridesmaids were done, I stood in the back room waiting for the ceremony to start.

As the music cued and everyone else walked down the aisle, it was my turn. I didn’t anticipate the nerves I felt. I knew exactly who I was marrying. Kyle was my best friend, my confidant, my other half. He was my everything. There was no reason to be nervous, but I was. My father took my arm and led me down the aisle. My eyes never left my husband to be. He was handsome. All the nerves I had been experiencing had disappeared. We were joining our lives and becoming one for eternity. I couldn’t have been happier.

The House of Bloodstein by Author Ren Garcia

Synopsis:

THE HOUSE OF BLOODSTEIN: PERLAMUM

Mysterious and elusive, Lady Chrysania of Bloodstein calls from the ruins of her castle. She dwells in the dark, hiding her face, ravaged by an ancient curse. The only way to break the curse is to win a game called Perlamum. If she loses, she dies. She looks to her Vith kin in the west, begging for help acquiring the all-important pieces she needs to play the game.

61siC7ljWoL

Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, his Ne-Countess Sammidoran, and his cousins answer her call. However, collecting the Perlamum pieces for Lady Bloodstein is a deadly game. They must face a host of perils:

-The terrible Black Hat in the city of Waam who knows their every move.
-A hated rival on the planet Xandarr and the bewildering labyrinth of Gods Temple.
-The man from Shook who cannot be killed.
-A family of vile bravos from the south.
-The diabolical Dead Men of Mare, nigh invincible creatures straight from an insane nightmare.

To even the odds, Kay and Sam turn to a forgotten graveyard deep in the Telmus Grove, and the great eminence resting there.

Can Lady Chrysania of Bloodstein be helped, or, for that matter . . .

. . . can she be trusted?

Story Excerpt, From Chapter 3: the Wunderlucks:

As they headed for the exit, somebody sitting in a passing booth stuck their foot out, nearly tripping Sam. She stumbled a bit and caught herself on Kay’s shoulder. A hint of quiet snickers came from those seated at the booth.

Kay stopped. “Good sir,” he said. “I do believe you did that on purpose.”

A man in the booth stirred. “And what of it?” he asked in a deep, rumbling voice.

“What of it? You attempted to trip my wife, who just happens to be the Ne-Countess of Blanchefort.”

The man stood. He was a veritable mountain of flesh, brawny, broad in the shoulders with a smallish head with cropped black hair, square chin, and a thick neck. He wore a gaudy insulated spacing suit composed of shiny red material trimmed in bright yellow. His boots were heavy Macco boots meant for space or high altitude work. His three companions in the booth all wore similarly colored attire. An assortment of half-finished drinks sat on their table. Kay recognized them as the people who had taken the painting from Castle Bloodstein.

They snickered and cat-called at Sam.

“So, they’re making Monama dishwashers countesses now?” the female in their group said as she smoked a menthol. “We knew the Vith had no taste and little class, but this?”

“Serve me another drink, Monama . . .”

Kay was momentarily taken aback. He’d never faced such brazen rudeness, especially in the middle of his own village. He was enraged. “You four bravos had best mind your civility.”

“Or what?” said the sour female.

“Or, I could have the lot of you arrested. I could have you executed too. The old laws are still in place.”

The female looked Kay over. She took a luxurious pull from her cigarette and then flicked it at him. “Oh,” she said in a slow growl. “I doubt you’ve the balls for something like that.”

Phillip stepped forward. “If I were you, I’d reserve yourselves and offer an immediate apology to the Ne-Countess.”

“The day we apologize to Monama trash will be a bad one indeed,” the female said, flashing her teeth. She had brownish-silvery hair pulled tight into a net. Her bangs were waxed into curls across her forehead.

“I wonder,” another man at the booth said. “Is the Monama for sale? I’d like to buy her for an hour or two.”

Kay’s hand went to his CARG, ready to unsaddle it and lop their heads off. Sam restrained him. “It’s alright, Kay, we needn’t waste our time with these foolish people. Let’s go,” she said in Anuie.

Hearing Sam’s native language encouraged more poor behavior from the group. “Will you listen to her?”

“Sounds like two pigs having sex, doesn’t it?”

“Hahahahahahaha . . .”

Sarah was fuming. “How about we take you outside and beat the living tar out of the lot of you right here and now, how about that? Nobody talks to the Ne-Countess of Blanchefort like that while I’m around! Got it?”

The rest of the people in the booth stood up. They were all of exceptional size. The lady in their group engaged in a fierce staring contest with the shorter Sarah. The first man spoke again to Kay.

“We heard you were some sort of Vith hero. You look like a little Nancy-Boy to me. I am Ernst Wunderluck, and these with me are my kin: Aiken, Rusty, and Clara. We are the famed Wunderlucks, adventurers and

treasure-hunters supreme! We are the pride of Remnath!”

Wunderlucks? Kay recalled their name was carved on the table in Lady Chrysania’s gallery.

Phillip stood firm. “I notice the thick necks, low brow, small cranial size, and limited apparent intelligence. The lot of you look to be members of the House of Jocanda. Am I correct?”

Sarah laughed. “Jocandas? You mean that stupid House that declared war on the Sisters way back when? You’re a pack of Jo-Boys then, for real! Ha, ha, ha!!” She slapped her leg and howled. “Why don’t you go

find a Sister to vomit on, Jo-Boys.”

The Wunderlucks all turned a shade of red to match their suits.

“We’ve Hospitaler’ed people for less,” Clara said, sizing Sarah up. Clara might have been very pretty had her face not been puckered into an ugly scowl.

“Shaddap, Jo-Boy!” Sarah said.

Ernst fumed. “Nobody calls us that, understand? Nobody!” He reached out to seize Sarah by the hair. Sam shot out and took him by the wrist. She wrenched him off his feet to the floor. Chatter in the bar

immediately ceased. The rest of the Wunderlucks drew weapons from their suits.

“Not so fast!” Ki said coming up from behind, her SK pistol drawn. “What’s going on here?”

“This is a private conversation, Magistrate,” Ernst said, engaging in a test of strength with Sam from his knees and not having much success. “It . . . doesn’t concern you.”

Pop! His hand broke in Sam’s grip and he sweated in pain.

“Drawing weapons in my village in a serious offense, boyo. Your welcome’s officially worn out. Take your things, pay your tab, and blow. I catch you lurking around here again, you’ll all spend time in my jail,

got it?”

“Is this Vith justice?” Rusty Wunderluck asked. “The Monama just broke my brother’s hand.”

“Seems to me your brother had that and more coming to him. Maybe he’ll find his manners next time,” Ki responded, her finger on the trigger.

The Wunderlucks looked amongst themselves and then returned their weapons to their holsters.

“Fine. We’re going. This is a crap Flop-Town full of Frag-Wagons and Whimple-Poles anyway,” Ernst said. Sam released him and he stood, his hand an ugly shade of purple. The Wunderlucks tossed back the remains of their drinks and headed to the door.

Ernst turned back. “Oh, one last thing, Blanchefort. We heard you got a letter from Bloodstein. Stay out! We’ll do the collecting, right? Us, not you, she contacted us first. That’s our adventure and our spoils. I see you and your trash wife meddling in our business again and I’m not going to be so nice about it.”

Rubbing his wrist, Ernst and the rest of the Wunderlucks went through the door and were gone.

A Chaotic Courtship

Friday, August 19th, 2016

 

 

For as long as she can remember, Bethany Swafford has loved reading books. That love of words extended to writing as she grew older and when it became more difficult to find a ‘clean’ book, she determined to write her own. Among her favorite authors is Jane Austen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Georgette Heyer.

When she doesn’t have pen to paper (or fingertips to laptop keyboard), she can generally be found with a book in hand. In her spare time, Bethany reviews books for a book site called More Than A Review.

Twenty year old Diana Forester, a country bred young woman fears that her inexperience and uncertainties has driven Mr. John Richfield away. On arriving back home from London, she learns that he is already there, ready to continue their acquaintance. If Diana thought that it was difficult in London, courting takes on a whole new aspect when Diana’s younger siblings become involved. She finds herself dealing with her own feelings, her sister, her younger brother, jealous members of a house party, a jilted suitor, and a highwayman as she falls in love with the charming Mr. Richfield.

Snippet:
 
“You recall I met a Mr. Richfield in
London, shortly after I first arrived?”
“Yes, you mentioned him several
times in your letters.”
Her tone was matter of fact, giving
absolutely nothing away.
“Well…” I hesitated as I sought
the right words. I rubbed my palms against my skirt. “At Aunt Forester’s last
dinner party, Mr. Richfield asked for my permission to come speak to Father.”
For a moment, there was silence.
“What was your answer?” Mother asked, as calm as ever.
I bit my lip and found I could no
longer meet her gaze. “I fear I may have spoken without thinking.” Back when I
had said the words, I had been surprised. Now though, I realized just how
mistaken I had been. “I said it’s always pleasant to have someone new visit.”
“I see. Do you like him?”
Ah, there was the question. “I think
so.” I took a deep breath and let it out slowly. “He is respectable, at least
as far as Uncle Forester could discover. No one ever had a word to say against
him. I think he is a good man.”
“And yet, you don’t seem
enthusiastic about marrying him.”
“I have only known him for a few
weeks.” It felt good to be able to talk this out with my mother, now that the
awkwardness of saying the words had passed. If anyone could help me untangle my
feelings, it was her. “Is that enough time to know a person? You knew Papa your
whole life before he proposed.”
Mother’s hand came over mine.
“Diana, look at me.” I lifted my eyes to hers. “You are the only one who can
make this decision. It is your right to refuse an offer you find distasteful.
However, you need to understand it is not likely you will have the opportunity
to travel again and meet other people.”
“I don’t find the offer distasteful.
I just don’t think I know him well enough to accept his hand in marriage.” I
sighed. “I wish I had had the time to know more of him.”
“Perhaps you will.”
I shook my head. That seemed an
impossibility. “Mama, you didn’t see the look on his face when I pretended I
didn’t understand. He was so disappointed. I acted as if I were a senseless,
empty-headed child! What kind of man would pursue me in the face of that?”
“A man who would be understanding.
Someone who would realize your shy nature.”
As soon as I pulled my hand away, I
reached to pour myself some much-needed tea. “There are other, much prettier
girls with better dowries than I,” I remarked, adding just the right amount of
cream and sugar. “I doubt I will ever see him again.”
Of that I was quite certain. I’d had
hours to consider the whole mess. I sipped my tea as I watched my mother’s
face. Her smile was one I couldn’t quite understand. Why did she look so
amused?
“Mr. Richfield is already here.”

Engines of Liberty Series… a steampunk or alternate history?

Friday, August 12th, 2016

tour banner

The book:

REBEL HEART

cover 1 small

In 1776, the American rebels were thwarted by British magic. The leaders were executed, but the surviving soldiers went into hiding and kept the revolution alive. By 1984 they have developed better weapons and machinery to even the odds. Now all these “technomancers” need is an army for their arsenal, and their newest recruit is 15 year-old Calvin Adler of Baltimore. The problem is, he’s got a pretty strong will, and might give the technomancers at bit of trouble in training…

SUICIDE RUN

cover 2 small

Calvin learns that the technomancers aren’t all good guys like he’d thought, and soon runs afoul of the worst of them. Now, with a bomb in his chest and a lot of ground to cover, he has a little over a week to save his life, or else become another casualty in the revolution. Meanwhile, an old enemy comes back stronger than ever, with ambition to spare…

PATRIOT’S GAME

PG Cover

Calvin is on the brink of death. The army is scattered, the commodore is dead, and the British mages know about the technomancers’ secret weapon. Just as all hope seems lost, Calvin and his friends find out the mages have a weakness, one that could end the war overnight and liberate the colonials.
But it will take a miracle to reach it…

The Interview:

Graham, how long have you been writing? I started in 1993 as a third grader, but started pursuing it seriously about ten years ago and I’ve been trying to get better ever since.

Wow! Tell us where you were born and where do you live now. Southern California then, Southern Nevada now. I am very much a product of the desert.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer? Oh jeez. There is no right answer to this! I have been blessed with many great influences and mentors. I guess my third grade teacher was the one who really started this whole thing though. I give her lots of credit.

What is the name of your Serie? and what genre? The series is “Engines of Liberty,” and the books are REBEL HEART, SUICIDE RUN, and PATRIOT’S  GAME. They are a bit of fantasy, alternate history, and steampunk. Aimed at YA but good for all ages.

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb. The Brits used magic to win the American Revolution in 1776. Two hundred years later the Americans have built a huge army with steam and gas engines, plus a ton of firepower, and they want a rematch. Romance and adventure abound!

So interesting… What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives? Take an interest in history and open your imagination. I was a diligent daydreamer in my childhood and it brings me immense joy, I hope others take it up.

Synopsis:
It was a match made in heaven. Or so everyone thought. Sadie Mae Cummings is all set to marry her childhood sweetheart, Kyle, when she is assigned to tutor Lincoln, the new college football running back. This sophomore phenomenon has all the girls on campus knocking on his door. But Sadie isn’t interested in his advances.

Lincoln’s overblown ego doesn’t take well to being shunned, and he resolves to make Sadie his own. He pursues her relentlessly, until finally Kyle finds himself shut out of Sadie’s life, with their shared future crumbling around him.

After two years, Sadie’s relationship with Lincoln ends, and she is left having to put the pieces of her life back together. She desires nothing more than to recapture her relationship with Kyle. He has stayed true to the dreams they had planned together, living the vision even without Sadie by his side.

When she moves back to her hometown, she labors to rekindle their love. But things have changed, and Kyle has moved on. Sadie quickly discovers how hard it is to rebuild burned bridges.

Follow Sadie’s story as she fights for a chance to restore broken dreams. Will love endure?

This inspirational romance by EC Jackson is book two of the Hope series and is a standalone book.

 

My Review:

In A Living Hope by E. C. Jackson readers will find faith in Gods plan for each of his children. The main characters are religious and faithful normal people that struggled to fallow what God has in store for them. A few verses from the Bible are quoted and use to illustrate what the character is learning or visioning as a message from God to them. It isn’t a preachy book at all and is a clean romance that will help you see yourself between the pages.

Sadie was engage to a wonderful young man and believe that they were pick by God to belong to each other…that is until she has to help a shallow student from flunking a class. The guy obsess with the attention he gets from the opposite sex decided to get Sadie just because she doesn’t care about him. When she abandoned her fiancé and family because of shame she stay with the guy and suffered much abuse from him that lasted two years. Finally she needs the support system of her family and she returned home right next door to her ex-fiancé. Now she want back in the relationship and have to struggled to get Kyle to see her as an adult with a different personality and strength than the confused girl he was engage to.

In all, I enjoyed A Living Hope by E. C. Jackson, for its entertainment and morals values. I would recommended to Adults as well as Young Adults the same. It could become a teaching tool for anyone who has fallen in love lately.
