Endure by Laura Diamond (Cover Reveal!)

Here it is - the cover for ENDURE, by Laura Diamond!  Isn't it fabulous? I just love it! Love the ombre effect of the colors, the futuristic city and the girl. Doesn't she tell an awesome story with that expression, her hair and her clothes? But I'm even more smitten by the guy in the background. I want to know what his deal is - why he won't look at us. Are you intrigued? Then read on for more...!

Seventeen-year-old Justin's anemic blood is a blessing. Or a curse. It all depends on who you ask.  To most of the immortal Vie, his blood is a scourge: untouchable and useless. To some Vie, his blood is a drug. To Justin, it’s something that gets him in a lot of trouble. Being poisoned by a Vie is just one example. His sister getting kidnapped is another. Whether it’s being coerced by a deluded cult leader, or negotiating with Alex—an Vie scientist addicted to Anemie blood—Justin struggles to keep every mutated drop of blood he’s got. His fight for survival gets more compl…

High School Reunion

I'm coming up on my twenty year high school reunion. Yeah, now you have free reign to tease me about my age. I don't mind.  Because these twenty years have given me time for reflection.  It's funny what I've learned over the last two decades.

First, back in high school you've got your group of friends. You know who the popular kids are, the jocks, the princesses, the preps, the art kids (today they're emo), the burn outs, etc. You know your place and you stay within your circle because stepping outside of that circle is taboo.  It's like a cast society. Yet no matter what clique you are in, you know all the kids in your class, including the rejects.

Second, back in those high school days you think that everything that happens is so vital, life altering. And maybe some things were big life altering decisions. But most everything in high school is a big joke, only we don't know it at the time. We think the world will end if we don't get invited to th…

Even though I don't live in Utah I enjoy watching her fun segments, usually about her top book picks.  Today Teri is sharing her favorite Witch books.  Welcome, Teri!

Thanks so much for having me on your blog today and for being a part of the blog tour for my debut novel. BLOOD MOON is a young adult/new adult witch fantasy and the first in the Moonlight Trilogy.
I’ve always loved reading books about witches and it was, in part, that love that inspired my book. Here is a list of my top five favorite witch books. 1 – "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" by Elizabeth George Speare First published in 1958, this beautifully written book has timeless themes of love, friendship and staying true to the heart. All the reasons I enjoyed this book as a girl still resonate with me now as an adult. Kit is one of my favorite female literary char…

Blog Tour for INSIGHT by Terron James!

I'm super, uber excited to be part of the blog tour for Terron James!  His book, INSIGHT, released just a few days ago on June 1st and I'm thrilled to help spread the word!  I hope you'll stay and read through the blog post because there's a giveaway at the end!

Rumors are surging through Appernysia that a Beholder has been born,
the first wielder of True Sight in over a millennium.

Seventeen-year-old Lon Marcs discovers he has been blessed—or
cursed—with this gift. He cannot control the power of True Sight and
feels it killing him with each passing day. He realizes that the only
people who might possess the knowledge to save his life are the sworn
enemies of his king. To obtain their help, Lon would have to journey into
exile, leaving behind his village, family, and beloved Kaylen.

Although this is the hardest decision Lon has ever made, it is only
the first of many that will test his strength and challenge his
interpretation of right and wrong. You can find INSIGHT here: B&N
