About the Book:

“This is a novel I would read and reread and recommend to others. Fans of vigilante and desperado revenge will delight in this horror story.”Horror Tree.

Rebecca Crow’s four-year-old son is dead, and her husband is missing.

Divers find her husband’s car at the bottom of a canal with their son’s small, lifeless body, inside. The police have no suspects and nothing to go on but a passing mention of a man driving a van. Guilt and grief cloud Rebecca’s thoughts as she stumbles towards her only mission: Revenge.

James Porter knows exactly what happened to them, but he’ll do anything to keep it a secret.

James didn’t plan to kill Rebecca’s son, but he’s not too broken up about it, either. There are more important things for him to worry about. He needs money, and his increasing appetite for murder is catching the attention of a nosy detective.

Book Blitz: ‘Chasing Ginger’ by Marie Lavender

 

Title: Chasing Ginger

Series: The Misfits Series

Author: Marie Lavender

Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy,

Adult Contemporary Romance, Chick Lit,

BBW/Curvy/Rubenesque Romance,

Billionaire Romance

 

About the Book:

With more attention than she ever imagined, how can she tell if this is real or fantasy?

 

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?

With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

 

(CONTENT WARNING: Watch for foul language, steamy scenes, and a pesky yet messy ability to choke on your dinner while laughing. If you’ve come expecting just a lighthearted, slapstick romance, you may not get that here. The author approaches sensitive topics in the best way she knows how. Just be prepared for all the feels to be deeper than usual for this genre – an emotional romantic comedy. No unruly cliffhangers, HEA guaranteed.)

Book Blitz: ‘Screamcatcher: Dream Chasers’ by Christy J. Breedlove

Title: Screamcatcher: Dream Chasers

Author: Christy J. Breedlove

Publisher: Melange Books, Fire & Ice

Genre: Dystopian / Urban Fantasy /

Young Adult

 

About the Book:

Seventeen year-old Jory Pike knows a thing or two about Indian lore from her half-blood Chippewa ancestry. She can trap, hunt and fish with the best of them. She has a team of three other teen friends called The Badlands Paranormal Society. Instead of bagging groceries or playing on I-pods, they think they can excel at banishing evil spirits. They hope to cleanse houses and earn fat paychecks for their services.

Dream catchers aren’t just the chic hoops tourists buy at novelty shops–they work. And sometimes they clog up with nightmares until they collapse under their own evil weight, imploding and sending the dreamer into an alternate world. Jory uses her worst nightmare to enter the dream catcher world. She’s pulled her teammates in deliberately. Everything goes right on schedule but they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. Now Jory and her friends are there, trapped between the people who have confessed their sins to the Great Spirit and are seeking a way out, and the monsters and evil spirits which are happy to keep them trapped in the web world forever.

They were once considered Seekers in the dream world. Now they’ve become vigilantes and call themselves Pathfinders. Is it spiritual enlightenment they’re after? Or have they now become fatally reckless?

About the Book:

When seventeen-year-old Jory Pike cannot shake the hellish nightmares of her parent’s deaths, she turns to an old family heirloom, a dream catcher.

However, the dream catcher has had its fill of nightmares from an ancient and violent past. After a sleepover party, and during one of Jory’s most horrific dream episodes, the dream catcher implodes, sucking Jory and her three friends into its own world of trapped nightmares. They’re in an alternate universe-locked inside of an insane web world. How can they find the center of the web, where all good things are allowed to pass?

About the Author:

I became a story teller. I’m a diehard frantic creator of Young Adult fiction, whether it’s paranormal, science fiction, suspense or fantasy. I believe in pure escapism with unceasing action adventure and discovery. If you want a moral message or cultural statement, you’re apt to get a small one. But let me tell you something, reader, I want to make you laugh until you gag, cry until you’re dry and tear out tufts of your hair. Today, young adult lit needs a resurrection. How soon we’ve forgotten about Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent and Twilight. Oh, the mania! Where has it gone? Are we losing our young readers? We need something really fresh and new. I and several writers are going to pour everything we have into that end. You are the kindly judge–help us get there and we will deliver!

Book Blitz: ‘Immaculate Conception’ by I.J. Miller

 

Title: Immaculate Conception

Author: I.J. Miller

Genre: Fiction

 

About the Book:

 

Two moms, Maddie and Al, wake up one cold morning in March in a run-down motel in Weehawken, NJ thinking they have finally found safety after a cross-country escape from their baby’s manipulative biological father. But they soon discover that the state’s top hostage negotiator–and his personal four-man SWAT team–surround their room.

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION takes you to the inner core of two unique women desperate to keep their baby at all costs and provide him with the secure, protected, happy childhood neither of them had. This well-crafted story takes you from the drama of the present, to the tragic scarring of childhood past, to the joyful connection the two make as adults, then back to the present and its emotional closure to this passionate journey of two partners seeking a peaceful life together as a family.

Maddie and Al show us how important it is to protect our children at all costs and how valiantly they’re willing to fight to overcome the deep-rooted effects of early abuse.

Excerpt

MOTEL

“I’m less unhappy when I sleep,” mutters Al, so tired she’s barely able to form words as she collapses face first onto the motel bed.

Maddie, lying on the other bed, is tempted to say, you never sleep, but Al’s already passed out. Probably better this way. Any inkling of a challenge would lead to another one-sided argument that Maddie would surely lose. She is exhausted as well. She closes her eyes. She wishes she could sleep. But her pulse continues to race at highway speed, knowing that after a few hours rest they will finally be able to complete their cross-country trek and be safe amid the millions living in New York City.

From the east, the Hudson County Sheriff, followed by his deputy, in matching cars of blue and white, pull into the lone driveway of the motel parking lot. There are plenty of empty spaces, making it easier to avoid the giant potholes puddled from the rain. Only one guest vehicle, a muddy Honda CR-V with New Mexico plates, is in the lot, parked in front of number fifteen, the only room occupied at this early morning hour on a cold Tuesday in March.

The forty rooms horseshoe around this stretch of asphalt marked by faded lines. At the end of the lot is a lobby with a picture window. Behind the glass is a small neon sign, one missing the letter V, that flashes repeatedly the word ACANCY.

From the west, a New Jersey State Trooper arrives. All of the vehicles congregate in a cluster at the center of the parking lot. Each man behind the wheel is quite familiar with this motel near the last chance exit off 495, a final alternative before driving into the darkness of the Lincoln Tunnel and emerging into Manhattan. It’s a place that typically rents by the hour: drug dealers, pimps, prostitutes, and johns, guests who feel Weehawken, New Jersey is safer and less expensive.

Their orders are simply to wait for Nokenge, who’s driving the seventy-five miles from the state capital, accompanied by his personal four man SWAT team.

Their only concern is the two women behind the door to room fifteen.

And the baby.
