Cover Reveal ~ In This Breeze - Lake Shore University by Kathleen Maree'


In
This Breeze
Lakeshore
University #1
By
Kathleen Maree
Genre:
NA Romance


Release Date: August 24, 2017






nerd. A quiet art student. A nobody.
Or perhaps, just some girl.



These are the non-spoken titles I was known as since I started at Lake
Shore Uni almost two years ago now. When given the chance to leave my
horrific childhood behind - I didn’t hesitate. In fact, I was ecstatic to have the door hit me on the ass on my way out of town; because the only two things I actually loved in my traumatic life…

Were coming with me.


And whilst the three of us shared the same beat-up truck when we moved
here – that’s where the similarities unfortunately end.


Ethan ‘The Mule’ Jones, is kind of a super star on campus. Everywhere
he goes he seems to draw attention. I guess that’s what happens
when you’re headlining papers as the star basketballer for the LS
Eagles. But to me, he’s just Eth. A boy who still spends his Friday
nights snuggled up watching movies with me, and who walks me to
classes just to make sure I get there okay. He is my best friend in
every way, and I can’t imagine my life without him in it.


And then there’s Jase.

The truth is I knew from the moment I met Jase at the local skate park,
when he was smoking a cigarette and teasing Eth for his poor skating
ability, of how fiercely protective he was about those he cared for.
From the time he blew his warm breath over my injured knee, to when
he thankfully intervened on the most horrific day of my life. A day,
that still haunts me when I am alone in the dark.


He saved me.

But Jase has his own demons too. Even if he doesn’t go looking for it,
trouble always seems to find him. Which is why he has been absent
from our lives for the past two years.

Sometimes I wonder what he’s doing.

Quite often I worry if he’s okay.

And I always, always, think about him.

Even though I shouldn’t.



From
the earliest age I was a born storyteller.

Ask
my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple
event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It
was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to
be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy... it was
an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable
with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.

Over
the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually
began writing them down. Before I knew it, 'Cut' had been completed.

When
I am not busy writing my next story, I am a working mum, housewife
and sometimes hockey wag :) In other words, probably some kind of
circus act who specialises in juggling ;)

I
hope you enjoy my blog, where I will be posting thoughts, other books
I am currently reading and even sneak peeks of my novels. I encourage
any feedback, comments or direct messages via my contact page should
anyone wish to get in touch.

I
am so thrilled to be sharing my journey and hope you enjoy my stories
as much as I enjoy writing them.

Dream
often. Believe always.








Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Religious Mystery Thrillers by Ken Fry


The
Lazarus Succession
by
Ken Fry
Genre:
Historical Mystery Thriller

AMAZON
UK TOP 10 RELIGIOUS MYSTERY
A
modern-day suspense thriller with a medieval mystery.

✚ A
LEGEND TO SLAUGHTER FOR... 
✚ A
TRUTH TO DIE FOR... 

The
Lazarus Succession
 takes readers to the ancient scene of
Christ's greatest miracle, to medieval Spain, and back to modern-day
Europe. In typical Ken Fry style, nothing is as it seems and a
surprise awaits at every turn of the page.

According
to legend, Annas Zevi, an artist who witnessed the raising of
Lazarus, was told by Christ to paint what he saw. Over the centuries,
his completed works has vanished, along with every other painting
depicting Lazarus' resurrection. They were rumoured to be sacred
icons
 with miraculous powers.

International
Art Recovery Experts,
 Broderick Ladro and Ulla Stuart, are
hired by a disgraced High Court judge, Sir Maxwell Throgmorton, to
locate a long lost medieval painting by Spanish artist Francisco
Cortez. Like Zevi, his work is said to be divinely inspired.

Throgmorton's
client, a wealthy Spanish Condesa, is terminally ill and
the icon is her last hope. She will pay and do whatever it takes to
find the missing work of Cortez. 
Unbeknown
to the Condesa, Throgmorton seeks to make a vast personal fortune
from the discovery of the paintings, and use it to reclaim his place
in society. 

Ladro
and Stuart learns of Throgmorton's deceit and attempts to thwart his
plans. As they delve deeper into the mystery of the missing Cortez
painting, they discover a secret that changes their lives
forever.

Just
as it changed the lives of everyone it touched across the centuries.

✚ Praise
for The Lazarus Succession
 

"...the
supernatural elements, and their effect on the characters, are pure
genius. Even an old cynic like me was entranced. The addition of a
little historical flavour, in the shape of frequent glances into a
beautifully depicted medieval Spain, gives the novel context, and a
timeless magic I found addictive.This is polished fiction of the
highest calibre, and I'm more than happy to award 5 stars." -
Stuart Kenyon, author

"...this
is an excellent novel with many twists and turns, the pacing is
perfection, the characters are wonderful and the ending couldn't be
better. If you want a riveting tale that will hold you in thrall from
the first page to the last, then this is your book." -
Carol Marrs Phipps, author

"The
Lazarus Succession has a great historical and religious foundation
combined with a dynamic plot, twists, and turns. Ken Fry knows how to
keep the reader's attention and trigger their emotional response." -
Lilah E. Noir, author




The
Patmos Enigma
by
Ken Fry
Genre:
Historical Mystery Thriller

With
the success of his UK Top 10 bestselling religious mystery, The
Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts 
a cunning and
explosive historical thriller 
unlike any you've read
before.





Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist
Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation
sites, they unearth an ancient ossuary, untouched
since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the
contents of the find appear to be the six of the Seven Seals
mentioned in the bible's Book of Revelation.

The
Seventh is missing.

Meanwhile, a mysterious man has
been walking the Earth for millennia. He waits...
amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event
that would release him from his endless existence. With
the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.

Joshua
Agar and his team, Professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver
soon realises the significance of their find. An ancient society
known as The Keepers awakens, and they are after the Seven Seals. For
it has been told, that whosoever breaks the seven seals will
have unimaginable power and control
 over the new world
promised through the Second Coming of Christ.

The frantic hunt
for the Seventh Seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches,
and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search
for clues 
to the possible resting place of the missing
seal.

The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret
brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the Seven Seals,
since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the Seventh. Using
their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of The Grand
Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.

As
scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a
historical relic and not a religious find. But with the
forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact
, they start to
question if there is indeed truth in the story.

The Patmos
Enigma will take you on a journey of wonders and thrills as it
hurtles from dark truths to enlightening revelations as
the war between science and mysticism commences.

is a prolific word weaver of romance, fantasy, and science fiction
novels. Her works include the series Postcards from Paris, The
Surrogate, The Curse of Lanval series, several stand alone novels,
and her upcoming YA novel, Clock City. She has been writing her whole
life, with her first published work of historical fiction with 4H
Clubs of America at the age of 12, and poetry at the age of 16 with

A.
Nicky Hjort

is originally from Arlington, Texas- the second of five siblings, all
of whom have strong creative talents. She currently lives in coastal
central California where she practices medicine as an Ob/GYN. In
between being a lovingly devoted mother and delivering babies, she
writes stories that cross multiple genre lines- from Sci Fi to high
fantasy, but all of her stories have thriller and strong romantic
components. And for her clever reader, all of her manuscripts are
subtly connected to each other, with their purpose to explore all
facets of Love and Light. She likes to say that her stories write
themselves, and in the process, often write her, or at least the next
version of her hoping to emerge. A lover of all the arts, A. Nicky
Hjort hopes her stories might inspire you to find your inner creative
genius.



As
for her heroes- they are as varied and eclectic as her choice of
narrative genres, but when pushed to list her favorite influences,
she would say James Patterson, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwell,
Dean Koonntz, Gene Roddenberry, Shel Silverstein, Suzanne Collins,
and Walt Disney.











Samantha
Jacobey
Anyone
who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never
met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I
work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often
in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be
dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the
middle of the night.



I
grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything
is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love
my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my
significant other, and many friends as well.









I
have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently
available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of
course, there will be many more stories to come.







Aubree
Lane

is a true story teller. This award winning author has been writing in
one form or another for most of her life and has loved every
moment.

to Maui.







Her
motto: Write Until Your Butt Hurts, And Your Eyes Are
Crossed.



Aubree

relaxing in the paradise they created, called home.








Kristen
Luciani

is a bestselling author and self-proclaimed momtrepreneur with a
penchant for stilettos, Silicon Valley, plunging necklines and
grapefruit martinis. As a deep-rooted romantic who prefers juicy
drama to fill the lives of anyone other than her, she tried her hand
at creating a world of enchantment, sensuality, and intrigue, finally
uncovering her true passion. No pun intended…























B.B.
Raven
I
am very stubborn and independent. I have a big heart and I love
children. One of the reasons why I chose to contribute to the Shades
of Fear Anthology is because it was for a charity that would
help children with cancer. I had a very unstable childhood; my father
was an alcoholic and my mother abandoned me. Thank goodness for my
grandparents. My grandfather, who is now 78, is still a big part of
my life. My son and I help take care of him. We are simple southern
folk who enjoy collard greens and fried chicken on Sundays.

Remenicky
~ Love Stories With A Twist
L.A.
Remenicky is a wife and mother of two fur kids. A payroll
professional by day, she writes out the stories in her head by night.
An
avid reader all her life, she finally put pen to paper (or fingers to
keyboard) during NaNoWriMo in 2012 and has never looked back. When
she’s not typing away on her latest story with music playing in the
background, she can usually be found spending time with her family
and friends.


Desiree
Scott
I
have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write
both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many
influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not
help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa
Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura
Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list
by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my
desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my
dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my six year
old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs and a handful
of chickens. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty
of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my
laptop and coffee close by.



Taya
Wood
Unexplored
possibilities and impossibilities have always fascinated Taya Wood.
As a child she would stargaze most nights, wondering about the
universe and imagining how things used to be, are, and could be in
the future, so writing speculative fiction was inevitable. 







Having
spent her former years as a graphic designer and life coach and then
running a business assisting creative people to earn a living, Taya
now writes magic realism and paranormal fantasy. 







She
lives in an eco house in a forest with her husband, several
kingfishers and kookaburras, a fishpond, some water dragons and a
very large goanna.

Release Tour ~ Cookie Cutter - A Love Build Outside the Box by Jo Richardson

Publisher: Enchanted Publications





#cookiecuttertour


















Iris Alden & Carter Blackwood couldn’t be more different.



Recently divorced, newly-employed, cookie-baking, PTA super mom Iris likes her life neat & organized, while house-flipping Carter’s itchy feet means he never stays in the same place for very long.



When Carter purchases the home across from Iris to renovate it for a quick sell, he has no intention of putting down roots. He certainly doesn’t plan on getting involved with the local community, let alone the town committee mom.



But life doesn’t always coincide with what we think we want.



When an unexpected family crisis pulling Carter back to the city, & Iris’ ex-husband doing his best to sabotage anything resembling a new life for her & their teenaged daughter, Iris & Carter soon find, love isn’t always sweet.

















































A movie fanatic, a writer of stories, a lover of life.



I grew up in Maryland with four siblings, three parents and an endless number of cousins within the vicinity – but it was too cold up North for this thin blooded girl. Today, I live in Florida with my two girls and a husband who shares my same sense of humor and basic take on life as we know it.



Life is too short to put dreams on the back burner.



I write both contemporary and paranormal stories that include mystery, suspense, humor, action, romance, and anything else I can think up.
