Day Thirty One - Last Day

For my last day I'm showcasing Kai's Journey by Wendy & Charles Siefken.

After his father accidentally releases a killer virus into the world, Kai is left alone to battle the creatures the virus created. While fighting for his existence in the barren post-apocalyptic world, Kai runs into an unlikely ally in a young woman named Clover.

Fueled by a flicker of hope, the two teenagers join forces with a rag-tag band of survivors in a heroic journey. Can the human race endure?

Day Twenty Nine - Star Pirate

I have the Star Pirate by A.C. Winfield for day 29.

Instead, Ebony imagined her own adventures of sailing the sea, battling strange creatures and saving the people of Ia. Alongside her Mother and Father, as the ‘Defenders of Ia’. What Ebony did not know was that she would soon have her own tales to tell.

Day Twenty Eight - Debut Novel

Today I am showcasing Imaginist the debut novel of Elizabeth Glanville.

Louise has long coveted the young professional lifestyle, but when she moves from South Wales to London she finds real life harsher than she ever imagined. Louise seeks solace in her daydreams, but as the line between reality and fantasy starts to blur the pull towards idealism becoming just too strong to ignore. Meanwhile Ryan has high hopes from life, but when things don't turn out as expected it becomes a struggle to keep face. He sinks deeper into despair and isolation, resorting to drastic measures just to cope, before fleeing across the Channel to start a new life in France. Secrets, lies, distortion and disillusionment combine to create a dangerous concoction. But can Louise survive London, and Ryan survive Paris, to return from the brink of destruction and to the family and friends who so desperately want them back?

Day Twenty Seven - Jane and Bertha

Day 27 and welcome to Jane Carroll and her friend Bertha!

From the Author

Writing Bertha-Size Your Life! was one of the most delightful things I have ever done. Originally, I was going to write a somewhat typical book incorporating Law of Attraction principles for women experiencing empty nest but Bertha had other ideas...she wanted a book of her own...and that's exactly what she got!

Bertha is one of those characters who get in your head and your heart. From zany outfits to downhome advice--she has it all.

I'm currently working on a sequel...and there has never been any doubt as to whose book it it will be.           
Join me tomorrow for a debut novel.

Day Twenty Three - Abduction

Day 23 brings you The Abduction of Lilly Waters by T.M. Novak.

 The last beating she received at the hands of her boyfriend threw her over the edge. She had to escape him, so she fled taking her daughter Lilly with her. She didn’t know where she’d go, but she didn’t care. All she could manage to think about was the safety of her unborn child and her daughter Lilly.

The frequent stops the mother and daughter had to make were uneventful until Beth pulled into a Diner in Moore, Oklahoma where her daughter Lilly was taken by unseen hands.

Detective’s Daniel Prescott and Frank Martinez head the investigation trying relentlessly to solve the case before it’s too late. These days, when children are taken it’s a unified frenzy to find them. In this case, every lead turns up empty and every turn they take reveals a clue they couldn’t have anticipated. The detectives aren’t quite sure where to turn or who to trust; even the mother herself is a prime suspect.

The Abduction of Lilly Waters is a fast paced child abduction thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat in anticipation until the end where you’ll discover the deepest and darkest secret waiting.

Day Twenty Two - A Good Cause

Day 22 is a children's book where the profits go to charity. At the moment the charity benefitting is the Epilepsy Unit at Helsinki Hospital.

The book Tales of an Old Wizard is for ages 9 and upwards (I know a few adults that have enjoyed the stories).

The world has forgotten the real, old magic and no one remembers how to make a fire by snapping their fingers, or how to raise waves with a whisper.

Greum is a wizard. He used to rule the elements but now he doesn’t bother. The only magic left in his life is that in the stories a young boy delights in tricking out of him. Stories of dragons, warriors and sorcery.

Day Twenty - Two Authors

Because today is my birthday I'm bringing you two authors. The first is Heidi Nicole Bird and her book Ontario.

“Don’t worry, Ontario, I’ll never leave you. You will always have me here to protect you and your brother.”

Those words from a childhood memory would haunt Ontario Stratton for the rest of her life. Losing her father had been difficult enough, but her life would change even more drastically at the beginning of her senior year of high school. Only weeks into the school year Mrs. Stratton abandons her two children for a more carefree way of living. Suddenly thrown into a very different life, Ontario clings to her brother Eddy, her new legal guardian, and to no one else. Could she trust anyone anymore? Even her best friend isn’t there for her. . .

In order to feel like less of a burden on her brother, Ontario gets a job at the local fifties-style diner. It is there that she meets her new “family,” including the oh-so-intriguing Austin, the only one who can help her truly heal. In time, Ontario discovers that Austin has his own demons, and that he needs her just as much as she needs him. Some things in Ontario’s life begin to come together again, but others continue to fall apart. Though her world seems to be breaking, she is introduced to a kind of happiness she has never known before, and her new found friends show her that maybe, just maybe, she can learn to love again.

To find out more about Heidi and to get a copy of Ontario visit:

My second author is Kevin Travis.

North Pole Reform School - Blog Tour

Mistletoe Bell hates Christmas. So would you if you had a name like hers. Her Christmas-mad parents make the festive season last all year, and with another Christmas looming, Mis doesn’t think she can take any more. After her carelessness causes an accident at school, it seems like things can’t get any worse.

Then she wakes up to find The Ghost of Christmases Ruined in her bedroom.

She is taken to the North Pole, to a reform school run by elves determined to make her love Christmas. Stuck in a misfit group of fellow Christmas-haters with a motley crew of the weird and even weirder, watched over by elves day and night, she doesn’t expect to meet cute and funny Luke, who is hiding a vulnerable side beneath his sarcastic exterior. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with him.

But all is not as it should be at the North Pole. A certain Mr Claus is making the elves’ lives a misery, and pretty soon Mistletoe and Luke are doing more than just learning to like Christmas.

A YA romantic comedy in which Santa is the bad guy, teaching reindeer to fly is on the curriculum, and zombies have a fondness for Christmas music.
Suitable for older teens and upwards due to bad language.

You might wonder how a book with people who have ruined Christmas, grumpy elves who don't like humans, a purple moose, a bad Santa and zombies will work - but it does. This is a great read and you'll soon be rooting for Misty and Luke (and love the ending). A Christmas book with a difference.

Author Bio - Jaimie Admans

Jaimie is a 28-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, drinking tea and watching horror movies. She hates spiders and cheese & onion crisps. She has been writing for years but has never before plucked up the courage to tell people.

But when the two are separated, Ian is abducted by a tribe of dragon worshipers and is forced to find his courage. As he struggles for his freedom and embarks on a perilous search to find his father, Ian meets the true peacekeepers of the Realm. It's then that he learns there is a greater purpose for being in there.
