Smoke & Summons Author Interview & Give Away!

Image
Last April, Charlie's publisher asked me to read her book, Smoke & Summons for a potential cover quote. Reading books well before they're out is one of the perks of being an author. However, waiting to talk about it and tell all my friends and readers about it has been killing me! Finally, I'm able to share how much I loved this book and loved both Sandis and Rone!

Charlie was also kind enough to answer my Take 10 questions. And she is offering a hardcover book and an audio book to two lucky winners in the US only. And I'm offering one paperback book to an international winner. See the Rafflecopter form below!

Here's my cover quote: Once this story gets going, the action—Just. Doesn’t. Stop. By the time you reach the end, you’re breathless.

The cover blurb: As a human vessel for an ancient spirit, Sandis lives no ordinary life. At the command of her master, she can be transformed against her will into his weapon—a raging monster summoned to do his bidding. Unlik…

Navigating the Stars OUT NOW!

Image
I'm excited to announce that Navigating the Stars is available now worldwide!

Navigating the Stars is the first book of my Sentinels of the Galaxy series. It's a fast-paced, action adventure science fiction story, starring Lyra Tian Daniels. It's set 400 years in the future and, in this world humans have discovered Chinese Terracotta Warriors on exoplanets throughout the Milky Way Galaxy. Lyra's parents are the archaeological experts with a capital E and are assigned to travel to Planet Yulin to assess the newest Warrior discovery.

Lyra's not as enthused about the adventure to say the least, but, since she's not yet eighteen Actual years old, she has no choice but to leave her friends behind--50 years behind that is. Traveling through space very fast has a big price--the time dilation. However, once she arrives at Planet Yulin fifty years in the future, she has more to worry about than missing her friends. Looters attack and strange things are afoot!

WHISPER Author Interview & Giveaway!

Image
Wow - it's dusty in here! And look at all the spam comments I need to delete. Sorry, I have to admit, I'm not a blogger. So why keep my blog? Because this works when I wish to do an interview and giveaway with a fabulous author. I thought I'd be doing more of these, but this year has been BUSY. I use Facebook to post updates and fun things so that's the best bet. Maria's Author Page

Speaking of fabulous authors, Lynette Noni's US debut YA book, WHISPER was published this summer and it's wonderful! I have an extra hardback copy and an ARC to giveaway - see the Rafflecopter below. I met Lynette in Australia when I was there for SupaNova Con. She is the sweetest person, beautiful both inside and out! Her The Medoran Chronicles are chewing up the Australian Bestseller charts and now she has a book published in the USA! She took some time out of her super busy schedule to answer my Take 10 questions about her US debut, WHISPER.

Here's the cover copy:

STAR TOUCHED Author Interview & Giveaway!

Image
Hello!  Today I'd like to introduce you to A. L. Kaplan, the author of STAR TOUCHED.  She's a super lovely lady and talented author.  I had the pleasure of reading her book a few months ago for a potential blurb, which I happily provided.

She is also offering to give away 2 copies of STAR TOUCHED to two lucky winners.  To enter, go to the Rafflecopter form below. It's limited to US and Canada only.

Here's the cover blurb: Eighteen-year-old Tatiana is running from her past and her star-touched powers. Her power to heal may be overshadowed by more destructive abilities. Fleeing the persecution of those like her, Tatiana seeks refuge in a small town she once visited. But this civil haven, in a world where society has broken down, is beginning to crumble. Will Tatiana flee or stay and fight for the new life she has built? Only by harnessing the very forces that haunt her can Tatiana save her friends and herself.


TAKE 10 with A.L. Kaplan:

1.) How did you get the idea for STA…
