{Guest Post} Author Rebecca Royce (Blog Tour)

Today we have with us, Author Rebecca Royce for the Eye Contact blog tour. I really enjoyed Eye Contact and my review will be up later today. Thank you so much for joining us today Rebecca. She will be talking about what she does when she has writers block. When I have writers block, which I am lucky to say I don’t have very often, I sit down and try to write something else.  This may seem a little counterintuitive.  How can I write something new when I can’t seem to write what I was supposed to be working on?  I’m not exactly sure why it works but I’ve actually had several books published that were a result of my not being able to creatively work on another project for a little while. I think that pulling myself out one world that is troubling me and giving in to something else helps me to clear my mind of stress and worry, eventually enabling me to write the first project again.  So… Read more »

Giveaway- Raven by Nuayma Jeggels

Giveaway- Raven by Nuayma Jeggels

Raven by Nuayma Jeggels A girl, a coma, a Plague, and an empty grave. When Shardaie wakes up, she doesn’t know who she is, why she can’t understand emotions, why she has been unconscious for nearly nine of her thirteen years, or why the dead just won’t stay dead. The only clue to her past is a locket, but the Plague, which finally stretches its unnatural hand to her village, forces her to leave and to learn to protect herself. But everything has a cost: the protection against the undead reveals a secret that Shardaie and her classmates just don’t want to accept, and at the end, Shardaie realises that some secrets shouldn’t be revealed. Secrets have the power to destroy, and the power to change her view on humanity for ever.  Here is an extra scene from the book! Shardaie was lying on her side on the floor, nose nearly pressed against the struggling lizard. Her violet eyes slowly blinked, watching as the creature waved its limbs and tried its best to get… Read more »

{Guest Post} Author Stacy Eaton

Thank you to Stacy for joining us today. Check out my review of her book, My Blood Runs Blue! Thank you for allowing me to be a guest on your blog today! For those who don’t know me or what I do, I am an author, but I am also a Police Officer by career. I love my job and love what I get to do. So let me ask this of you… When you think of a police officer what do you envision?  Many people think of them as strong, honorable, warriors and some even call us heroes.  We run into the face of horror when everyone is running away.  We face off to the worst of mankind, the rapists, the child molesters and the murders.  We help people when they are hurt and we listen to people when they want to talk. Some people say we show no fear. We get asked all the time, “weren’t you scared?” or “aren’t you ever afraid?”  Of course we are afraid! … Read more »
