 High School can be a witch.

SLV-Cover-FrontA teen girl with the ability to ‘see’ people before they die shouldn’t need to lie constantly to make life sound interesting, but that doesn’t stop Emily from spinning stories faster than she can keep up.

After transferring to a new school, Emily’s ‘dull’ life is shaken to the core by the appearance of Noah, a boy not rattled by her tall tales and with secrets of his own. A too-handsome-for-his-own-good senior, Noah needs Emily’s special gifts to save him from Sarah, queen bee of the school’s ‘It Girls’, whose own supernatural abilities force Noah into a life of silence and solitude. But when Emily tries to free him, things go awry, and she ends up on Sarah’s hit list herself.

Now, new friends and makeup tests are the least of Emily’s problems, and in order to keep Emily alive, Noah must suffer under Sarah’s spell. But as their feelings for each other grow, Emily and Noah find themselves on a collision course with Sarah and the ‘It Girls’ that will lead not only to the fight of their lives for a chance at romance, but also to a shocking revelation that will tie the teenagers together in ways Emily never imagined.

* * *

Romantically charged and eerily chilling, Something Like Voodoo weighs the choice of saving your life versus fighting for a life worth saving. This paranormal romance will put a spell on you.

PSA: Intelligence is not measured by the English language

Posted by on August 8, 2016 in Uncategorized | 7 comments

Kind of wild this even needs to be said. But alas, here I am, staring at a comment on a writers forum. A comment meant as an insult, but only serves to reveal the deep-rooted ignorance of the poster. It’s not just them, though. It’s a mindset many share. It’s this idea that people who speak “broken English” are stupid or in some way unprofessional or “less than” others. This kills me. This idea makes my soul wither at society. I could write this post in some vague, general manner. But I’m not going to. Because I think these issues need to be face head on. So let me begin with some context, for those who don’t know me outside of my writing or my blog. I provide a variety of services to authors to help them with their success. I’ve helped many become USA Today Bestsellers. I’ve helped a few find literary agency representation and land publishing deals. Others, I’ve simply helped improve their audience reach so that they can actually make a living at a job they love but that doesn’t usually pay very well. In fact, I’ve spent so much time doing this, my writing has suffered because of it. Only so many hours in the day and all. Recently, I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to hire some personal assistants. Two of them are from the U.S. and one of them lives overseas. After corresponding with one of the girls from the states, an author sent me this message: “The reply was poorly written with spelling and grammatical errors, as if it was composed by some “personal assistant” in a third world country. Thanks, but it was enough to make me stay far away from your services.” There is so much that goes wrong in just a single sentence there, that it’s hard to even know where to begin. But first, I address the second sentence: I don’t want to do business with someone who says things such as what is written in that first sentence. So please, by all means, stay away from my services, because you couldn’t pay me enough to knowingly help someone who thinks or speaks as this author has. I could dismantle this author’s comments so many ways. Such as that even people in the U.S. can have poor spelling and grammar skills. Or that many people in third world countries don’t have computers or internet access, and if they did, could we maybe commend them for working hard to improve their lives, rather than bashing their grammar and spelling? Or that I just so happen to know many people who speak English as a second language and do it BETTER than many Americans I know. But the crux of the issues isn’t any of that. The issue is that he thinks that it’s okay to throw “third world country” around like an insult. First of all, not all countries that are classified as third world countries are poor or lacking in education. Many are industrialized countries. While many do use the term to mean poor, even if that is what he meant, it is still not an insult. It’s not shameful to be poor. Where you are born is not something to be ashamed of. Second, speaking...

L.B. Gilbert & Lucy Leroux – Exclusive Excerpt, Free Book, & $50 #Giveaway – #amreading #PNR

Posted by on July 16, 2016 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

a FREEBIE from USA Today Bestselling author Lucy Leroux Isobel Sterling is a governess with many secrets—including an uncanny ability she’s been hiding her whole life, until the day arrives when she has to use it to save herself from a madman. But first she has to master it. Fast. Governess Isobel Sterling feels fortunate to have found a safe haven in the Montgomery household. The children are kind and the lord and lady of the house leave her alone. Just when her life seems as good as it can get, mysterious visitors arrive from abroad. At first Isobel is flattered by the single-minded attention she receives from their handsome young guest, Matteo Garibaldi. But when girls in the village go missing, Isobel has a terrible suspicion the disappearances are linked to the darkness she can see growing behind Matteo’s eyes. Filled with dread, she tries to avoid his company—until she is locked in with him for the night. Get this book for FREE when you subscribe to Lucy Leroux’s newsletter! (You will get an EXCLUSIVE download link in the first email sent after confirmation!) A Deal from L.B. Gilbert! Invested with the powers of Mother Nature, four women have been charged with the almost impossible task of maintaining order in the supernatural world and—when the crimes are extreme—the human world as well. Diana, a fire Elemental, is almost burned out. Alone in the world (save for her Elemental sisters), she takes satisfaction in punishing those who’ve strayed so far into the black they’ve disrupted the balance. But her contentment is increasingly short-lived as she struggles with the limitations of her ability. An Elemental can track murderers to the ends of the earth, but not before it’s too late for their victims. So when a child from a previous case goes missing, Diana is determined to find her. The only problem is, she may have to take on an entire coven of vampires to do it. Read for Free on Kindle Unlimited! Exclusive Excerpt of FIRE Diana had Daniel drive them to the safe house so she could change. She was no longer concerned with Alec knowing the location. After pulling on clean cargo pants, she joined him in the living room to search for her boots while he wandered around, checking out the various knick-knacks and weapons displayed. He’d already been through all the swords and crossbows in the gym and had even tested one of the maces. He was fingering a fourteenth century Japanese Koto when she finally found her left boot. He turned to her, shock lining his features. “This is from the Kamakura period. It’s spectacular. And priceless in certain circles.” “Yeah, I know,” Diana said with genuine nonchalance, bending down to tie her shoelace. “But this thing is not only for display. You. . .you’ve been using it.” “It’s a weapon,” she said dryly. “It’s common for a soldier to train with a variety of them.” Alec stared, mouth slightly open. “It’s worth thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars. I can’t believe you practice with this as if it’s any old sword,” he said, taking it in hand and turning to display it to her, as though he was trying to make her see it clearly. Suppressing a smile, Diana took the sword...

A FREEBIE from Debbie Herbert! A young witch, Callie, returns home from exile after a traumatic Ouija board incident six years earlier. She falls for classmate James MacLauren and struggles to keep her magical abilities a secret from him. Then there’s the even trickier problem that her rogue warlock father and his coven will kill anyone who prevents Callie from joining them in dark magic. Someone like James . . . But James has a secret of his own. He’s part of a hidden race of immortals living in the Appalachian hollows and the last thing he needs in his life is a witch who could imprison him with a binding spell. It will take all of his superhuman physical strength, and all of Callie’s extraordinary magical skills, to survive when two covens and an army of immortals engage in battle. Should they fail, they face either death or utter domination by the power of dark magic. Sign up for newsletter at www.debbieherbert.com (sign up is in the side bar) and receive a digital copy of book and the author will get in touch with you regarding how to get your free ebook copy! – You’ll get a copy within a few days 🙂 Also from Debbie Herbert! She thought she was a witch…she’s more Skye’s a young witch who sucks at spells and works at a metaphysical store, The Green Fairy. Strange things are happening there at night: black specks of movement out of the corner of her eye, mysterious buzzing noises, unidentified dragonfly-like carcasses in the basement, and a hidden cache of absinthe (aka fairy crack). Kheelan is a human changeling. Raised with the fairies, he’s viewed as an inferior species whose only use is to serve his kidnappers. He’s been totally screwed by the Fae and his only goal in life is freedom. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to escape. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by feelings for this quirky witch. As Samhain, the witch’s Halloween, draws near she must make a bold move to claim her heritage and power, restore order in the fairy realm, and try to win Kheelan’s freedom and love. Absinthe, autism and augury meld into a paranormal cauldron where fairies are sly tricksters waiting to trap you in their Realm. Read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited! An exclusive excerpt from CHARMED AND DANGEROUS… “You have to go back, Callie. You’re in real danger.” Go back. Danger. For two days the words haunted her. Now she was on the road, the rhythmic sound of the tires on the highway putting her into a trance. Danger, danger, danger. The minute Aunt Mallory opened the letter with an Alabama postmark, everything changed. She didn’t want to go back. Of all the nerve. She’d been exiled in New Jersey for seven years, and now Mom and Grandma Jo decided she must return at once. Callie hit the gas pedal. The angrier she got, the faster she drove. What should have been a fourteen-hour drive due south, she’d cut to a mere ten hours. She’d never traveled so far on her own, and convincing Aunt Mallory to let her do it wasn’t easy. Especially since her old Volkswagen convertible, the ‘Dixie doodlebug,’ had over 150,000 miles. Her heart skipped...

He fell in love with the New Jersey Devil… #amreading #free on #KindleUnlimited

From inside the pages of Tempting the Light… Abby Fitzgerald didn’t expect a surprise birthday party when she got home today. She didn’t expect bold colored daisies or pretty wrapped gifts. But most of all she didn’t expect to find her live-in boyfriend Burt, engaged in a spooge-a-paloosa fest with a chick dressed as a mime. Her crazy old grandmother warned her she would be cursed on her twenty-fifth birthday, but who would have believed it? Burt slapped his body up against the mime from behind in a vigorous frenzy on the sleigh styled queen-sized bed. The woman’s hands and painted white face pressed up against an invisible window with his arm wrapped around her waist to keep her vertical. Seeing Abby, the mime’s lips parted into an “O” breaking the sex-me-up red heart painted across them. She covered her mouth with her gloved hands. Abby stared in horror at Burt with his mouth open and eyes closed, savoring the sheer ecstasy of screwing the mime. Her heart shattered shooting pulmonary shrapnel up her throat. He never looked like that when they were together. “You’re freaking cheating on me?” Burt’s eyes popped open, before he leaped from the bed. “Son of a . . .” Abby dashed into the hallway bathroom, and rummaged in the crowded cabinet under the sink. “Where’s the damn Scrubbing Bubbles? Or better yet, the Borax?” She tossed a mildewed loofa and a half used bottle of honeysuckle hand lotion over her shoulder. They landed not far from Burt’s bare feet. “Abby, I’m sorry. I was going to wait until after your birthday to tell you.” He placed his hands on both sides of the bathroom door trim and leaned into the room. “What the hell are you doing?” “I’m trying to find something to scour the sick image of you and your mime girlfriend from my eyes. Better yet, I’ll get the melon ball scooper.” Unable to contain herself, she whipped a can of lemon scented shaving cream at his head. He ducked but the foaming missile bounced off his hair-sprayed-until-bullet-proof hair. His nostrils flared like an enraged bull. Too bad that was all he had in common with the animal. “You’re acting irrational. Stop it.” True. Right now she couldn’t even think straight. “Get away from me.” “It doesn’t have to be like this,” he said under his breath. She ignored his statement and shoved his skinny five-foot-four-inch unclothed body aside and marched back into the bedroom. The mime perched on the edge of the bed with a sheet wrapped around her naked body. She held up both hands in a stop gesture and waved them back and forth. “Abby. Please settle down.” Burt trailed behind her. “Settle down? Do you know why I came home early?” “No.” He glanced at his watch then looked absolutely baffled. “Because I got fired today, Burt.” He tilted his head to the side and wrinkled his rather large forehead. “Oh. Well, how were you planning to help me pay the rent then?” She wished she had a gun to shoot the stupid out of him. About the book… Bad luck magnet Abby Fitzpatrick gets fired, catches her boyfriend cheating with a mime, and is cursed by an evil genie who pops out of a tampon box....

Can he still taste blood? His eyes flick to my lips, down to my throat, my breasts, lower, lower still. I’m close enough to see the golden flecks in his eyes shine. Smell that hard man smell of his which tugs at me. Heat from him spools towards me hitting me squarely in my chest, pulling at my stomach, churning my guts and I shudder. His eyes widen, and as if unable to help himself, he lowers his mouth brushing my lips once, twice, thrice. Teasing me, nibbling at me, caressing my lips till I feel the heat inside twist and glow, till the lighting tree on my back sizzles, sparking fire. I moan and reaching up capture his mouth with mine, thrusting my tongue against his; and feel the shock run through him. He’s still just for a second, then he’s leaning into me, on me till I am surrounded by him, his touch, his skin, that cinnamon smell of his, which is so Vik. Heat from his body pushes at me, begging to be let in, holding me captive and I feel a trickle of sweat running down between my breasts. Breath coming out in short bursts, I strain against him, trying to free my shackled arms, but he doesn’t let go. He also doesn’t stop there. His mouth lowers to my throat, pushing aside the bathrobe till he bares the curve of my shoulder, then bites me, lightly. My heart slams against my rib cage at that, my eyes flutter shut and I bite my lips to stop myself from crying out. At the pain trembling down to my belly. He kisses the skin, licking his tongue over the exact same spot and...
