Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Heartwood - A Magical Realism Novel by Nance Newman


Heartwood
by
Nance Newman

Genre:
Fantasy, Magical Realism

In
the Adirondack Mountains the forests are dying by the hand of a demon
whose only purpose is the destruction of the natural world.

Within
the high peaks of the Adirondacks a magical edifice, Heartwood,
appears yet remains hidden from the world. Inhabited by the
descendants of an ancient race who have been protecting the natural
world since the beginning of their existence, they will wait for the
next true Xylem who is the only one powerful enough to fight the
demon.
The
battle will soon begin.
Heartwood
weaves legend into reality as the world’s ecosystem is threatened
by supernatural demons. Elathea is a typical teenager whose parents
can no longer keep the family secret from her—that she is a
descendant of an ancient race of women whose legend says only one
progeny every hundred years or more will have the powers needed to
face nature’s magical enemies. As her powers begin to emerge, they
can no longer deny her destiny. They send her to Heartwood to learn
about who she is and what she must do. Only Ela doesn’t want the
job.
Sometimes,
you don’t have a choice.








I
live in upstate New York with my two dogs; a 17 year old Min Pin
(Zeus) and a female dog I recently rescued from the Puerto Rico
hurricanes (I have been learning Spanish and she is learning
English!). Her name is Ela and she is a joy.

I
have been writing in some form or other since high school when I
bought my first guitar (a 12 string for $50 from one of those
magazines my mother used to receive in the mail) and began writing
songs. In college, I started my first novel that I hope to go back to
and finish someday.
I
currently work for a school district in transportation as a router
and dispatcher where I use software to solve the puzzle of getting
5600 students to many different schools, but my goal is to become a
full time writer of novels and music. I try to fit writing in with my
full time job and hobbies that include biking, gardening, hiking,
kayaking and watching movies (lots of them and all kinds)
I
continue to write songs and perform with Dooley(my music partner) We
have a CD of original songs and it is available for your enjoyment.
Visit me at nancenewman.com to check it out.
I
am really excited to share my work with you, and some days you might
see me driving a big yellow school
bus.

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Starburst - A Place to Call Home by KAE Galla


Starburst
A
Place To Call Home Book 1
by
KAE Galla
Genre:
Paranormal Romance

Nova
spent years in a world she didn’t belong, never knowing who or what
she is. Years of questions and confusion, but the time has come for
her to find out who she really is and where she belongs. Does she
have a family that misses her? Have they been looking for her all
along? Are there others like her? What could possibly have happened
to bring her into the human world when she was so young?


The
answers to all her questions are out there somewhere, and it’s time
she found them. It won’t be easy, it may even be dangerous, but
it’ll be worth it. Finding her family is only the first step, from
there she will have to piece her life back together as she learns the
differences between who she is and who she was meant to be. What will
happen when she’s thrown into a world she knows nothing about?









My
name is KAE Galla and I've loved writing since before I knew how. I'd
sit with my mom and grandma telling them exactly what I wanted my
story to be, and they would write it down under misshapen scribbles I
tried to pass off as art work. It wasn't until years later that I
finally decided to go full throttle with my passion and share it with
the world. Now, thanks to the support of my loving family, great
friends, and an amazing team, my dream of becoming an author are
reality. My heart is in Paranormal Romance, and Romance in general,
but I love challenging myself and broadening my horizons so you can
bet there is more to come!

Release Date: January 15, 2019
Publisher: Eventide Press
Series: Super Stars #2
Format: Digital eBook
Digital ISBN: B07MFYGPPD

Synopsis:

SOPHIE MARKES just landed the ultimate writing gig--turning her award-winning superhero comic 'Shadows of the Imperium' into a screenplay for Card One Studios.

TRISTAN ECCLESTON just landed the ultimate acting role--playing the icy, brooding Lucius in Card One Studios' newest blockbuster.

Sophie's dream job quickly becomes a nightmare. Card One has completely changed her story, rendering it unrecognizable. Salvaging the script means plenty of on-set time... particularly with one unbearably gorgeous British actor.

Tristan's dream role is more precarious than ever. His father, British acting royalty, and his scheming ex-girlfriend are determined to sabotage his "frivolous" gig. Avoiding them and their snobbish expectations means spending more and more time with the quiet, nerdy, and irresistible Sophie.

But when Sophie learns the truth behind her butchered script--when Tristan learns the truth behind Sophie's icy facade--it'll take more than the might of the Imperium to thaw their hearts.

Excerpt:
Copyright © 2018 Colder Than Ice
Jane Galaxy

Tristan Eccleston.
One of her new coworkers.
He was a darling of… well, everything and everyone, it seemed like. Since he’d been cast as Morganna’s brother Lucius, Sophie had spent some time looking into him. Wunderkind of the British theater scene, only son of an acting dynasty that dated back centuries, he had a legendary charm that could infatuate even the iciest drama critic or interviewer. Not that he’d ever met anyone who didn’t like him, from the way articles absolutely gushed over him.
Sophie peered more closely at the tweet. Several pictures, all paired off, featured the actor in an expensive outfit on the left and increasingly fancy old cars on the right. Tristan in a red velvet smoking jacket over his bare chest, next to a glossy Jaguar from the 1960s. Tristan in profile looking moody, wearing blue pinstripes next to a Cadillac with huge fins. Obviously a commentary on the size of his nose. And finally, Tristan in a sleek black tuxedo from last year’s BAFTA awards, one strawberry blond curl springing out from his temple, next to…
Sophie zoomed in on the picture of the last car. A small photo credit at the bottom told her it was a 1938 Phantom Corsair. It looked like a giant bullet, or vibrator.
Who is this guy, and why does he have to be so embarrassing?
She flipped back to look at the editorial photo of him. Like this, for example. Who the hell wore Gucci and then faved photo posts by fans who made life-sized cardboard cutouts of him and posted pictures of themselves pretending to be asleep next to him for Instagram fame?
Sophie zoomed in on the V-shaped split where the velvet smoking jacket opened over the expanse of his chest. Comics Twitter claimed that his workout routine was mostly swimming—he hadn’t bulked up like so many of the Card One players who needed to fill out exoskeletons and spandex, but was focused on being lithe and hungry for power. The planes of his face and angle of the shot combined to make him look like he was gazing right at her, about to suggest that she remove her panties and come closer.
God, she kind of hated him.
Handsome, yes. Annoying and constantly mugging for attention, also yes.
They were going to cross paths on set, and it was going to take a lot of effort to not recall the infamous picture of Tristan on one knee pretending to propose to a girl giving an over-exaggerated look of shock and delight. Sophie tossed her phone to the head of the bed and found a robe to change into.
She could be polite, but ultimately distant. That was really all it required. She’d been raised with good manners.
Being polite and professional was no problem.

Harder Than Steel (Super Stars #1)
A SEXY MOVIE STAR, A DESPERATE PHOTOGRAPHER, AND THE SECRETS THAT COULD DESTROY THEM BOTH...

Henry Jackson (Jax) Butler is Hollywood's hottest bad boy. Ever since the release of STEEL KNIGHT, his first movie in the world-famous Defender superhero film franchise, he's been able to land any girl he wants, even his co-star's sexy model girlfriend. But this dream job comes with downsides—like feeling completely typecast and unable to move on artistically. That and the paparazzi. The evil, privacy-invading scum who tail his every step, smearing his name and reputation just for having some innocent fun. And one pap in particular has become his worst enemy...

Vanessa Reyes would give anything to be a real photographer, shooting for investigative journalism pieces that could make a difference in the world. But with her sister's medical bills to pay, she's stuck tailing Hollywood's latest bad boy Jax Butler through New York, cashing in on every one of his plentiful hookups. She might not love her job, but she feels no remorse about exposing Jax for the heartless heartbreaker he is. Why shouldn't she cash in on his dirty dealing?

But when Jax is ordered to clean up his public image, he can think of no better media contact to approach for help than his rival. Keep your friends close and your enemies... Well, you know the rest. As for Vanessa, her boss has ordered her to find him newer, dirtier dirt on Jax. What better way to worm her way into his good graces than by accepting his offer to write some fluff pieces about him?

Yet the more time the two enemies spend in one another's company, the more they begin to see different sides to one another. Is Jax really the ruthless hookup artist he seems? Is Vanessa just another shady pap out for his blood? Or do they both have another, deeper self? One that only shines when they're together...

In 1964, a rural town is rocked to its core when only one young man returns from Vietnam. Emotionally scarred, James hides from their pity and only finds the determination to lift himself up when he realizes what remains to be lost. He buys a little green Jeep, like the one that gave him shelter in the war, and hopes it will lead to salvation again. But the fortune it brings tarnishes, and James is left to sacrifice the thing that gave him hope for the people who need him most.

Over the next thirty years, the Jeep changes hands, passing between friends, family, strangers, and lovers. A single mother who buys a car for her reckless son nearly destroys a friendship with a man who silently loved her for two decades. An insecure youth at the start of his career learns that the most important lessons are the ones you never set out to learn. A family torn apart by their differences finds that love can be the hardest road to take. And a city architect must choose between the easy way to restoration or a difficult path that could save far more than just a rusty old Jeep.

I
was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, my father was
French and my mother British (from Wales). I moved to London, UK, in
1997, where I now live with my husband and son. I have been writing
since I was 14. I got quite a few short stories published in UK
magazines, before moving to longer fiction. I wrote three
contemporary romance books, but didn't find a publisher for them. I
then realized that mermen, sea witches and water demons were a lot
more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! My first two paranormal
romances did not find a publisher either, then I wrote A Merman's
Choice, which was accepted for publication this year by Black Velvet
Seductions. It is the first book in a fantasy romance trilogy
inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. I love
reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who's
interested!

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Warrior of the World - Chronicles of Dasnaria by Jeffe Kennedy


Warrior
of the World
Chronicles
of Dasnaria #3
by
Jeffe Kennedy
Genre:
Dark Fantasy



Pub
Date: 1/8/19

Just beyond the reach of the Twelve
Kingdoms, avarice, violence, strategy, and revenge clash around a
survivor who could upset the balance of power all across the map. . .


Once Ivariel thought elephants were
fairy tales to amuse children. But her ice-encased childhood in
Dasnaria’s imperial seraglio was lacking in freedom and justice.
With a new name and an assumed identity as a warrior priestess of
Danu, the woman once called Princess Jenna is now a fraud and a
fugitive. But as she learns the ways of the beasts and hones new uses
for her dancer’s strength, she moves one day further from the
memory of her brutal husband. Safe in hot, healing Nyambura, Ivariel
holds a good man at arm’s length and trains for the day she’ll be
hunted again.


She
knows it’s coming. She’s not truly safe, not when her mind clouds
with killing rage at unpredictable moments. Not when patient
Ochieng’s dreams of a family frighten her to her bones. But it
still comes as a shock to Ivariel when long-peaceful Nyambura comes
under attack. Until her new people look to their warrior priestess
and her elephants to lead them . . .













Exile
of the Seas
Chronicles
of Dasnaria #2

Around
the shifting borders of the Twelve Kingdoms, trade and conflict,
danger and adventure put every traveler on guard . . . but some have
everything to lose.


ESCAPED
Once
she was known as Jenna, Imperial Princess of Dasnaria, schooled in
graceful dance and comely submission. Until the man her parents
married her off to almost killed her with his brutality.


Now,
all she knows is that the ship she’s boarded is bound away from her
vicious homeland. The warrior woman aboard says Jenna’s skill in
dancing might translate into a more lethal ability. Danu’s fighter
priestesses will take her in, disguise her as one of their own—and
allow her to keep her silence.


But
it’s only a matter of time until Jenna’s monster of a husband
hunts her down. Her best chance to stay hidden is to hire out as
bodyguard to a caravan traveling to a far-off land, home to beasts
and people so unfamiliar they seem like part of a fairy tale. But her
supposed prowess in combat is a fraud. And sooner or later, Jenna’s
flight will end in battle—or betrayal . . .














Prisoner
of the Crown
Chronicles
of Dasnaria #1 

She
was raised to be beautiful, nothing more. And then the rules changed
. . .

In
icy Dasnaria, rival realm to the Twelve Kingdoms, a woman’s role is
to give pleasure, produce heirs, and question nothing. But a plot to
overthrow the emperor depends on the fate of his eldest daughter. And
the treachery at its heart will change more than one carefully
limited life . . .


The
Gilded Cage
Princess
Jenna has been raised in supreme luxury—and ignorance. Within the
sweet-scented, golden confines of the palace seraglio, she’s never
seen the sun, or a man, or even learned her numbers. But she’s been
schooled enough in the paths to a woman’s power. When her betrothal
is announced, she’s ready to begin the machinations that her mother
promises will take Jenna from ornament to queen.
But
the man named as Jenna’s husband is no innocent to be cozened or
prince to charm. He’s a monster in human form, and the horrors of
life under his thumb are clear within moments of her wedding vows. If
Jenna is to live, she must somehow break free—and for one born to a
soft prison, the way to cold, hard freedom will be a dangerous path
indeed…
