Book Blitz: Race for Love by Nana Malone

Race for Love by Nana Malone 
(The Donovans #3) 
Publication date: July 27th 2015 
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Up and coming racecar driver, Kisima Jennings, is all alone in the world and that’s just how she likes it. After all, she has her career, who needs family? But when a near-fatal crash jeopardizes her future, she’s forced to lean on someone for the first time in her life.
As an athletic trainer, Derek Donovan is driven and has always kept his eyes on the prize, never letting personal entanglements come between him and his dream of becoming a head trainer for the New Orleans Jaguars. That is, until one misstep costs him everything. Now he’s starting over, but with a client as tempting as Kisima, is he destined to repeat the mistakes of his past? Or will letting someone close bring him everything he’s ever wanted?



   
Interview 

1.       First off, can you tell us a bit about you?
Oh I’m just your average Ghanaian/American girl who lives in sunny San Diego with an American husband who thinks my family is crazy.  My Big Fat Greek Wedding has nothing on us.  In my infinite spare time, I chase around my two year old trying to tame her wild mane of hair, try and corral my spunky Scottie and occasionally let my hubby pamper me. 
 
2.       Did you always want to be a writer?
I honestly didn’t even thing being a writer was an option.  With strict Ghanaian parents, the only viable options were doctor, lawyer, or engineer.  May parents had a small heart attack when I didn’t become either of those and a minor stroke when I started writing, but they survived and I’m much happier.
3.       What kind of writer are you? Panster or Plotter?
A little of both.  I do a quick short outline, then let it flow from there.  I used to have this crazy outline, but soon felt stifled.
4.       Where do your ideas come from?
God only knows.  I get a root of an idea from movies, magazines, books, and conversations with friends.
5.       Out of any of your books, which one would you like to be a character in? And why?
Any of the Protectors books of course.  I’m dying for my own superpower.
6.       What are some of your favorite kinds of stories to read?
Anything romance.  Particularly romantic suspense, paranormal romance or contemporary romance.
7.       Do you have a favorite book and if so what is it?
Pride and Prejudice.
8.       Have you ever fallen for another author's hero? If so, who and why?
Of course.  From Pride and Prejudice to Jane Eyre, to any Nora Roberts book I’ve ever read.  That’s the point of romance books.  You’re supposed to fall in love with the hero.
9.       Describe the characteristics that make up your perfect hero.
Strong of mind, kind hearted, funny and excellent stamina ;)
10.   What are the scenes that are the hardest for you to write?
Family scenes.  As a writer it’s a struggle not to put our own family dynamics into every scene.
11.   If you could have dinner with any three book characters, who would you choose and why?
Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird – Because she was spunky and courageous. Lizzie Bennett from Pride and Prejudice because she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. And Emma Corrigan from Can You Keep a Secret because she’s hilarious.
12.   If you could have dinner with any three authors, who would you choose and why? Nora Roberts cause I would love to pick her brain. Mark Matherbane, because he changed my life, and JK Rowling because her imagination is so incredibly detailed.
13.   What do you like to do in your free time?
What free time.  I’m always writing, or reading, or chasing hubby, kiddo or dog.  But if the stars do align, I read.
14.   Favorite movie?
Right now, Magic Mike – Don’t Judge
15.   Favorite song?
Brown Eyed Girl
16.   Favorite color?
Purple
17.   Last question, are you working on anything right now?
Yeppers.  I’m working on the next Donovans Books, and the next In Stilettos Series books.

Book Blitz: Forever Bound by Deanna Roy PLUS Giveaway





Forever Bound by Deanna Roy
(The Forever Series #4)
Publication date: July 28th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
A new standalone romance with the characters from the USA Today bestselling Forever series, coming July 28, 2015.
You can only run from life for a little while. Eventually, it catches up.
A hitchhiking musician looking only for freedom and adventure as he sings for tips across the US spends a single night with spunky pink-haired Jenny, only to discover that sometimes, one night can be the beginning of forever.


  




Excerpt from Forever Bound

The guy I’d been watching walked over to the mike and said, “Hello, I’m Chance, and Paul here has kindly invited this Tennessee boy up to do a number.”

His name was Chance.

“Yeah!” Paul bellowed. He lifted his guitar strap over his head and handed it to Chance.

I made it to the base of the stage, where the crowd had left a gap in its disinterest. I wondered if my boy choice was doing to get their attention, or if he would be terrible.

I was rooting for him.

The band crashed into the opening licks, and when Chance started singing, I wanted to laugh out loud with giddiness. His voice was pure magic, deep and edgy.

He moved across stage like a fury, all energy and muscle. I was so close I could feel the wood floor shifting under his feet. His fingers squeezed the guitar in a steady grip. I was mesmerized by every movement. I could already see how his skilled hands would work on me.

I was hooked.

The song rollicked along for another chorus, then Chance brought them to a strong stop with a motion of his hand.

That’s when he saw me.

He froze a second, as if he couldn’t believe I was so close after he’d searched for me for so long. His smile spread to a wide grin. I’m sure my panties would have gone flying, if I’d been wearing any.

Book Blitz: Rebounding by Shanna Clayton

Rebounding by Shanna Clayton 
Publication date: June 14th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Rebounding is a FULL-LENGTH novel.
CONTEMPORARY ADULT ROMANCE
Recommended for 17+ due to mature language and adult situations.

Charlotte Hart used to have the perfect life.
Or…what she thought was perfect.
President of her sorority. Legions of friends. A promising career in journalism. It’s exactly what she wanted, exactly what she’d always planned. But after her slimy bastard of a boyfriend cheats on her with her archenemy, everything she built comes crumbling down.
She needs out. Now.
But leaving everything behind means she has to live with Max, a mysterious guy from the past. Living with him isn’t the wisest decision she’s ever made—Max isn’t friendly, he keeps a lot of secrets, and sneaks out in the middle of the night. There’s definitely something shady about him, but at least he seems to understand what she needs. In fact, he seems to know it better than she does.
When Charlotte shows up on Max Archer’s doorstep, he knows he can’t turn her away. He wishes he could—she’s broken, lost, comes with too much baggage, but he owes her his life. Whatever she wants, he’ll find a way to make it happen. Problem is, Max doesn’t count on Charlotte wanting more than he’s willing to give.
He doesn’t count on her wanting his heart.
REBOUNDING follows characters that were introduced in the novel PRETENDING, but you do not need to read PRETENDING beforehand as REBOUNDING is its own story and is a standalone novel.



    
Excerpt 


The way he’s carrying me makes it hard to look at him or speak to him. However, I can feel him. Even in my state, it’s hard not to notice the rippling muscles pressed against my back. He’s shirtless, and the warmth of his bare skin against mine isn’t all that unpleasant. Now that I’m aware of it, I can’t focus on anything else. 

We finally reach the shore and Max sets me down on the sand. Drops me, more accurately. I rub my hips and butt, grateful to know it probably hurt less than it would if I were sober.

“I’m implementing Rule Number 5,” Max shouts. “No deranged levels of insanity.”

Saltwater stings my eyes, or else I would roll them. “Oh, please. I’m just trying to have fun.”

“It’s storming, kid, or are you really that oblivious?”

I wipe my eyes and stand up, sucking in a small breath as I do. Even my ex, who trained rigorously almost everyday, didn’t have a body as toned and built as Max’s. I shouldn’t stare, but I can’t help it. 

He points toward the sky like he’s speaking to a toddler. “Does it look like swimming weather to you?”

“I don’t feel any rain,” I argue back.

As if on cue, a deafening crack of thunder booms all around us, lightning splitting the dark sky. Rain mists over the beach, millions of tiny raindrops hitting the surface of the ocean all at once.

Max and I look at each other, almost daring the other one to speak. The whole thing was too perfectly timed.

Title: 3volve
Author: Josefina Gutierrez
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


From author Josefina Gutierrez, of “The Shadow of Loss”, comes a new New-Adult contemporary love story.
I thought my life began when I graduated high school and moved far, far away—okay three hours away. But I was wrong. My life didn’t start until it almost ended.
I’m Cristal Escobedo, twenty-two years old and a former wild child who favors tequila far too much. But that all changed when life happened, and I ended up being responsible for my younger brothers. To top it all off, I think I’m falling in love with my best friend—dammit.
This is my not-so-happy story of how I grew up and got my shit together. My story isn’t filled with a bunch of pretty analogies or hyperboles. The people are real, the hurt is deep, and the love is complicated. People are flawed in the ways that matter; it’s what makes us human.

Excerpt
“Let me spell it out for you: you plus Charlie equals destiny, chica.”
I shake my head. “I was never good at math, but I think you have that equation all wrong.” Her mouth is moving and words are coming out, but it’s like she’s speaking another language. It’s not destiny. Bitch is cray cray. I love her and everything, but she’s losing it here, and I should be the hot mess right now.
She clutches my arms. “Destiny,” she waves her hand like some glittering sign above our heads—more like a dim lit convenient store sign with dying batteries. Hmph destiny my sweet ass.
At that moment Charlie walks in, “What we talking about?” he asks poking at my first attempt at chicken enchiladas. He promptly spits it back out, “Mmm so good.” He lies swishing water in his mouth.
“Destiny.” Vanessa does the whole imaginary sign again and winks her eyes repeatedly. I laugh, she totally looks like Shannon from Superstar. Next thing we know she’s going to break out in dance.
“Are you having a spasm?” Charlie places his palm on her forehead to check for a fever. “Maybe you’ve been cooking long enough, eh,” he jokes.
“You two are so blind!” She throws her hands up in the air and stomps out of the kitchen.
“I feel like I missed something, something important.” He looks to me for an answer.
“She thinks we’re fated for destiny.” I wave my hands copying her, “isn’t that ridiculous.” I laugh looking over at him to second it, but he just stands there looking at me.
“You seem to think so,” he says quietly.
“Well yeah, because it is,” I wait for him to join in, but he still doesn’t. He looks more serious now than he has before. He opens his mouth to say something, but then he thinks better of it, “I need to get home. Nessa is here so you’ll be fine,” he says all business like.
“You’re leaving already; you can’t stay a little while longer? I’m sure your parent’s aren’t expecting you yet.” I feel like a child asking her parents why she has to leave the party so early.
“I have a life.” He blurts out, hurting my feelings in the process.
“Fine. Go have your life,” I point at the door. I’m trying my best to hold back tears I didn’t even knew I still had. I’ve cried a river goddammit! And I will not break my “no crying in public” oath.
He runs his hand through his hair, and his look softens. “You can call if you need anything. I’ll be back tomorrow.”
“I wouldn’t want to impose on your busy life,” I choke on the words.

Blog Tour: Guest Post by Nathan Crowder, author of Ink Calls To Ink

Title:   Ink Calls to Ink
Author:   Nathan Crowder
Published:  July 23rd, 2015
Publisher:  Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing
Genre:  Urban Fantasy
Content Warning:   PG-13 Violence

Synopsis:
Franklin the Steadfast Soldier saw first hand what the cold indifference of modern London does to a Fictional Personae–a Fict. Refugees from their respective texts, scratching out a meager existence, the Ficts’ only comfort is the weekly Book Fair.
When a determined Knight of the Round Table hires him to find a missing king, Franklin starts to believe a better world could be possible. But the Knight works for the Host of Heaven, and Medea and Judas warn Franklin: One man’s heaven is not heaven for all. There is no place for misfits and villains in this new world order, their crimes are pre-ordained, written into the very fabric of their being.
To protect their city from a holy war, Franklin and his friends must stop the Once and Future King and an army of angels. Will they find the courage to write their own stories, or will they die slaves to their text and the ink in their blood?



Finding Inspiration

I have this document I’ve updated and maintained for maybe ten years or so now. Its title is “Novel Pursuits.” In this document I’ve listed off every novel I’ve written and, at last count, over thirty that I have yet to write. All of these unwritten novels are notated by some kind of working title. They’re also all roughly fleshed out in my head enough that I could, should I want to, sit down and crank out an outline over the course of a weekend.
Sometimes I think back on when I was halfway through my first novel and worried that I’d never come up with another idea. I’ve long since accepted that I’ll never live long enough to write all the novels I have ideas for.
And let’s not even discuss short stories. I don’t have a list for those. When I get the idea I either sit down to write it or I let it go. The good ones get remembered, the less good ones go back where they come from.
And where is that, I hear you asking? Who is this miraculous idea merchant, dusky coat and velvet voice, peddling inspiration at the crossroads?
Short answer: he doesn’t exist.
Shorter but more complex answer: he’s you.
See, inspiration is a wily, ephemeral bastard. Inspiration never checks his datebook, never shows up when we expect him. But at the same time he’s everywhere at once, existing in a kind of quantum state. Rather than trying to find inspiration, I’ve learned to be open to it. This makes it a passive process rather than an active one, and that has made every difference.
Here’s what works for me in as stripped down manner as possible.
First off, be both curious and aware. Get out in the world and pay attention to your surroundings with your curiosity engaged. Read historical markers. Go to any museum anywhere and read the signs. Pursue your passions and find relevant online news sites or fan pages that post frequently. See something that makes you curious, look it up. Heck, just look at the Wikipedia main page every day for the random articles of the day. Or get a Duotrope subscription (an essential if you plan on writing and selling short stories), and peruse anthologies looking for submissions. Many times I’ve had stories sparked by nothing more than the theme for a particular anthology.
Second, write everything down. I’m a huge advocate for Field Notes brand notebooks because they’re super compact and good quality paper. I can tuck a couple away with a pen or two and not even notice they’re there. I see something that sparks my interest, no matter how small, I write it down. If I get an idea for a story, or a character, or anything really, it goes in the notebook. It doesn’t need to be a full idea for a story. You don’t need to grab ahold of the full inspiration beast for him to be useful. As long as you grab an arm or leg, you have something.
Third, trust the cranial junk drawer to work some magic. Picture a big drawer full of all these various tidbits. Maybe a weird historical idea here, a cool picture you saw there, maybe a line or two of conversation you overhead at the bus stop. All that is packed into this mystery drawer, and every time the drawer is opened to add something new or take something out, everything jostles together. Frequently, several unrelated ideas floating around in there will find each other. Story bits that never made sense might break off and spark off something else creating a whole new idea. That experience is magical. Trust it.
Fourth, learn to tell when things are ripe. Not every cool idea is a story. Sometimes a great character is just a character sketch in search of their story. By way of example, I had an idea for an entertainment android that had gone AI and become this kind of hardened bad-ass bounty hunter. She was inspired by a painting by a favorite artist, but beyond the character idea I had nothing. I tried writing stories for her with that as my starting point for years and got nowhere. Then suddenly I was writing this sci-fi noir story called “Odd Jobs” and realized I needed someone that could very well be an earlier incarnation of this character. It ended up being a perfect fit and I love that story so much more than all the failed attempts I tried to force. The character hadn’t been ripe before. Learn to tell when a cool idea is just a cool idea and not a full story. They’ll find their shot or they won’t. But at least being able to tell the difference will save you heartache and time.
 Fifth, and finally, find other creative people and share ideas. Inspiration doesn’t live in a vacuum and neither should we. Several of my better stories have come from conversations I’ve had with fellow writers either in person or online. My novel Ink Calls to Ink was sparked by a story that was in turn sparked by a conversation about literary figures adjusting to the modern world. That conversation about whether or not Mary Poppins would make a great spy became a story that had nothing to do with spies or Mary Poppins. And when I shared that story with an editor/producer, she suggested that it would make a great novel—something I had never considered for this particular idea.
Hmm…. A miraculous idea merchant, dusky coat and velvet voice, peddling inspiration at the crossroads? There could be a story in that. I should write that down!

Excerpt from Ink Calls to Ink by Nathan Crowder:


“What brings you to the Book Fair, Franklin?”

The richly-accented voice snapped the Soldier’s head around. He recognized Judas immediately. While not adversaries by any means, they had engaged in their share of disagreements at the shelter. Franklin didn’t know what it was about the fallen acolyte that set his teeth on edge and, for his part, Judas seemed to delight in testing the Steadfast nature of Franklin’s title. The Soldier said nothing. His eyes narrowed in suspicion when he saw the young Juliet Capulet in the Scripture’s company. “Surely you have nothing to sell,” Judas continued, “and little money with which to buy.”

This last was said without a hint of judgement, and they both acknowledged it as a truth—both men existed largely on the charity of others, and the occasional coin earned from their very specific skills and reputations. “I have been retained by a woman who desired a degree of protection while stepping out this evening.” The soldier indicated the flap of the tent behind him with a tilt of his head. He hiked himself up straighter upon his crutch. “While it is true that I possess skills rarely sought, my courage and integrity bring peace of mind to those who need it.”

Moll chose this inopportune time to fold back the flap. “Only a moment more and you will escort me home before William even knows I was gone,” she said, her tone pitched as though she was addressing a disobedient dog. She retreated back within the tent, ignorant of the flush appearing at the base of Franklin’s neck.

“That is who hired you?” Juliet joined in, pointing towards the tent, with a disbelieving look. Judas offered up a sad smile. “Tell me, Franklin: how much does your integrity cost these days?”

Franklin clenched his jaw. “Even a Steadfast Soldier needs to eat, Judas. We were not all given thirty silver coins.”

Both men glared hard at each other as if willing the other to burst into flames. Juliet looked embarrassed to be seen with either Judas or Franklin, and peeled herself free from their company. The waifish teen made a bee-line for Medea, which didn’t surprise the Soldier in the slightest.

It was Judas who broke the silence first, his voice cold and flat—a sterile scalpel. “How I enjoy these talks, Franklin.”

“And I as well,” the Steadfast Soldier’s voice dripped. “Let us do this again sometime soon.”

Judas ambled in the direction Juliet had gone. He didn’t seem to be following her so much as already heading that way. Franklin waited where he stood, and it was only a few seconds later that Moll exited the tent with a bemused smile. “Good news, I take it?” he asked.

“Great news. Now, hurry me back to my home.”

Scarcely had they taken five steps when a bellowing voice cleared a path behind them. “Moll, you scurrilous wench! You’ll learn the price you pay for cheating ol’ Billy Sikes!”

The Soldier’s head dropped in realization. “And that would be William?” he sighed to his employer.

Moll’s smile as she glanced back over her shoulder at Franklin was all sugar and razorblades. “If you want the rest of your money, you had better make certain he doesn’t lay a finger upon me.”

By the time Franklin had spun around, there was a clear path from him to Bill Sikes. The well-known Dickens rowdy wasn’t particularly tall, but his arms were corded with muscle, and veins bulged in his neck. His face was red with rage as he closed the twenty feet between with an incomprehensible roar. There will be no reasoning with him, the Soldier realized, at least not at this point. Like it or not, Franklin had to fight this madman. He tightened his grip on the crutch in his right hand. Remember, the client paid for courage as well as integrity, he thought distantly as he limped into desperate combat.

Guest Post by Haley Whitehall, author of Pleasured by a Ghost PLUS Giveaway

Hello, my name is Haley Whitehall, and I’m part of the Sexy to Go, Volume 6 tour. Sexy to Go is a monthly instalment of erotic short stories in a variety of genres. After reading the first five volumes and loving them I was excited to be an author in volume 6.
I did have a problem though. I am not typically a short story writer. I write novellas, but even those are what my writing partner calls on the longer side. It was a challenge to get character development, plot, and of course smut in so few words.
I decided it would be easier to start with an established couple. That way I didn’t have to do the whole love/lust at first sight thing. I’ve never been a fan of that writing device. In “Pleasured by a Ghost” Polly and Randall are engaged when the Civil War breaks out and Randall gets a commission in the Confederate Army.
Many of the other stories featured in Sexy to Go, Volume 6 are parts of ongoing serials. Seeing how difficult it was to tell a complete short story, I think the serial idea is brilliant. Each instalment stands alone, but of course they are best read in order. This gives the author and the reader the opportunity to get to know the characters better. I haven’t written a serial before, but I am now toying with the idea.
“Pleasured by a Ghost” isn’t the only paranormal romance in this volume. Check out what is available in this set. It is currently on sale for 99 cents!

11 sizzling stories for women who like it hot! Erotic romance for women by women featuring contemporary, paranormal, BDSM, and more. A new volume every month, always delicious.
