BLOG TOUR: Dehumanized by Michael Loring

Thanks to Full Moon Bites Author Promotions for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Michael Loring's Dehumanized today. Happy reading!
*****************************
Summary:A deadly and currently incurable disease has been released as the result of an unknown experiment that went awry. Dubbed 'Lycanthropy' by the media due to its similarity to the horror movie genre depiction about werewolves, anyone infected begins to change, and every night of the full moon the 'beast' within is released. Within one year, lycanthropy spread throughout Europe, Asia and has now infected the USA. In an attempt to control and treat the outbreak, concerned governments have begun creating camps to contain those who are infected and to help find a cure. Despite rumors comparing these camps to the concentration camps of almost 70 years ago, the US government maintains these camps have the best interests of the public and the residents at heart. Expectations for a cure …

BOOK PROMO: Party Crasher by April Angel

HAPPY BELATED RELEASE DAY! I've read several of April Angel's (aka Milly Taiden's) works and I've enjoyed them all, so I'm please to share a little about her latest release today. Happy reading!


She crashed his party and became his prize…

According to one annoying Drex Callum, Chris is a “nosy reporter.” And maybe she is. She’s heard of the super secretive event known as the Seduction Party, and she won’t be content until she finds a way in. The last thing she expects to find is that Drex is the host. She’ll never get an invitation from her nemesis—unless she finds a way to get one herself. And breaking into his house is nothing if it means getting the scoop. But what she gets instead is an eye-full of the man himself, half-naked and more than she’d ever dreamed he could be in all her teenage fantasies.

Drex has been fantasizing about Chris forever, and now that she’s a grown woman, he still has a hard time treating her like one. So when she shows up at the Seductio…

BLOG TOUR: Omega by Susannah Sandlin

Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I have Susannah Sandlin here talking about doing research for Omega. Welcome!
*****************************
How Stuff Works—Research in the Vampire World
Research is a part of any writing process, but you’d think that in an imaginary small Southern town that’s eventually to become the axis of a vampire civil war, research would be minimal.

But not so fast. The great thing about urban fantasy and paranormal romance—and my Penton Legacy series straddles the line between the two—is that it lies at the crossroads of reality and fantasy. So the sexy vampires and the women who tame them have to deal with some real issues.

Here are some things I learned along the way in writing the Penton Legacy series, the most recent of which is Omega:

--Army Underwear. Randa, the heroine of Omega is a former US soldier turned vampire while on active duty. She doesn’t like being a vampire and hasn’t done much to update her wardrobe since being tu…

GUEST POST: RM Garcia

I have RM Garcia with me here today to share a bit about himself and his book, The Foundlings. Please help me give him a warm welcome!
*****************************
3 Questions with RM Garcia
1) Tell us about yourself and your background.
Well I was born and raised in New Jersey. My Family and I lived in and around the cities of Newark and Elizabeth. I have two siblings, and five step-siblings, so you can say I came from a large extended family. My childhood was split between the dreary streets of NJ and the Caribbean island paradise of Puerto Rico. At an early age I began writing stories and jotting down ideas. I’m an avid gamer and tabletop role-player, and these hobbies helped me learn how to chain together plots and characters. My best job ever was a nearby library branch. It didn’t pay much, but it didn’t matter to me, and I worked there all through high school. This is where my love of books grew. I discovered great authors like Piers Anthony, Orson Scott Card, and Anne Rice. It…

REVIEW: The Foundlings by RM Garcia

Image
Summary:Donnie aimlessly drifted through the past year of his life, and often wondered if it was worth the effort to just keep trying. The events of the past year had left him near broken. That all changed the moment Abbie walked into his life. She was like an angel sent to lift up his soul from the darkness it now existed in. For a moment his future seemed brighter with her in his life, and he started to believe he could be happy. They never expected how much their lives would change once they are dragged into another world. A world of shadows which within exists a society hidden in plain sight; a world wroth with danger, where they aren’t welcomed at all. They are forced into this world of Vampires, where they find themselves little more than orphans, nothing more than Foundlings from the start. Donnie and Abbie now find their love and faith tested to their very limits, while someone or something else watches, waits and hopes.

BLOG TOUR: The Chosen Series by Christine James

Thanks to Bewitching Book Tours for hosting this blog tour. I have Christine James here today sharing her playlist for The Chosen Series. Let's give her a warm welcome!
*****************************
Playlist
When I write I am taken to a completely different world. Like movies with amazing music scores, I have certain scenes I picture with certain songs. I listen to a wide range of music though; classical; rock; blues; alternative; punk. The lists of songs below are only a few of what I listened to as I wrote this series. These are the songs that I pictured in some of the intense scenes, and when I played them, I found it often helped.

FALLEN:
Hells Bells - AC/DC
The Crossroads - Bone Thugs-n-Harmony
More Human than Human - White Zombie
If Everyone Cared - Nickelback
Fallen Angels - Black Veiled Brides
Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
You and Me - Lifehouse
I don't care - Apocalyptica

Caged Heat - Black Meadows Pack Book 2

Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Image
Hey y'all. I'm very honored that Tara Lain named me a very inspiring blogger! Thank you so much!

I am to name 7 things about myself and then nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here's my 7 facts (warning they might be a little sappy):

1) I frequently fall in love with romance book heroes. I'm an absolute junkie. My biggest crush though has got to be Wrath from Black Dagger Brotherhood, with Z and V coming in at a close second. *swoon* I also adore quite a few contemporary ones too though, especially if I imagine them looking like Chris Hemsworth :D

2) I think I might be better at writing short stories than novels. Though I think being overly critical of myself too early (a first draft is supposed to suck) might be a factor in that...I'm a big chicken at this point, and have terrible self-discipline right now when it comes to making myself sit down and write. I also suffer from too many ideas, and not enough actual writing done ><

3) There are a few authors (…

REVIEW: The Submission of a Mafia Princess by Sandra Bunino

Image
Recap:Toni has lived her life in the shadow of her mob boss father and his associates, but meeting Brax changes all that by making her feel alive and free, until they were brutally torn apart. Brax survived the wrath of the mob, but not without scars both physical and emotional. He’s vowed never to let a woman get under his skin again, but what happens when their paths cross once again at The Satin Rose Experience?
Title:  The Submission of a Mafia Princess
Series:  Satin Rose Experience (SRE)
Book #: 3
Author:  Sandra Bunino
Approximate Book Length:  30 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate

Thoughts:Who doesn’t love a reunion plot line? Brax and Toni were both very compelling and their story is sad, but oh so heartwarming. There are a few predictable twists, but also some surprises providing that much more enjoyment from the storyline. I adored Jackson’s cameo (from book 2) in this one and how Asher and Mia who started it all are involved in each story as we…

Thanks to AToMR Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm promoting Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers. Happy reading!
*****************************

Sometimes, we don’t get to choose who we fall for…

Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir. Lennon’s curiosity overrules his good sense as he tries to peel away the layers to discover the reason for Jinx’s skittishness.

Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious.

When Lennon’s band holds auditions to replace their keyboard player, Jinx comes to tryout and almost leaves after seeing Lennon. Despite the fact she despises him, she joins the band to nurture her love of music that will hopefully ease the…
