Blog Tour: Possibilities of Amy by Jaye Frances














Blurb:

Amy is the ultimate trophy girl—gorgeous face, killer body, and a vivacious personality. But there’s something else about her, something that makes her even more special. Amy is new. A transfer student from out of state, she’s starting her senior year without knowing a soul. And that means she’s up for grabs, available.


Infatuated from the moment he sees her, David is determined to meet Amy, and if the fates are willing, to spend the rest of his life with her. But his shyness prevents him from approaching her—until his friends devise a contest to determine who will be the first to prove their manhood by seducing her.

Blog Tour: Felix Faust by Dexter Morgenstern














Washington, 21 May, 2014 - The Arcane Insurrection Continues

Dexter Morgenstern, author of “Felix Faust” has announced the release of a sequel. In “Felix Faust,” readers were introduced to an arrogant, intelligent young-adult, gifted with psychic abilities that attract a few friends and many foes, many of whom share Felix’s fundamental abilities.

In the contemporaneous sequel, which is scheduled for release in summer 2014, readers are set to be introduced to Byron Bishop, a psychic ex-convict with a ghostlike companion, who incidentally draws attention from foes before finding many friends. This places him on the opposite side of the playing field as Felix, and seeks to answer several questions about the previous book, while introducing new ones.

Byron is desperate to find a way onto the good side, but Baron isn’t, so how does the situation play out when tensions rise, and they grow closer to combating each other? Find out in the latest installment of The Arcane Insurrection.

Dexter Morgenstern has already received numerous positive feedbacks for his debut novel.

One reader said: “From tragedies, deaths, kidnappings, daring rescues, powerful enemies and allies the book keeps you reading eager to know what is going to happen next.

I can't wait to find out more about the other characters and just see where the story will lead in the next book.

Another said: “...Morgenstern has a great handle of plot and keeping the pace going, and you'll hardly ever encounter a dull moment in this book. His magic system is well thought out and is very in depth, and he does a great job explaining the intricacies instead of just walking over it, which makes the battles -- when everything finally comes together -- feel all the more real.




























About Dexter Morgenstern

Being a creative, highly-motivated individual, Dexter officially began writing books at the age of fifteen, and published his first novel "Felix Faust" at seventeen. When he is not writing, Dexter spends much of his time gaming, studying, or contemplating new plot details and stories in his head. Dexter's ultimate goal is to get a degree in Robotics and contribute to the subjugation of humanity by artificial intelligence.

The Arcane Insurrection: Felix Faust

Blurb: “Felix Faust is a nineteen-year-old semi-genius who has just been accepted into a prestigious college. He discovered telekinesis at an early age and has used it discreetly for his own entertainment. Felix finds himself displeased and malcontent with everything he encounters in the school, except for one student. This other student shares Felix’s gift, and is much stronger, capable of abilities Felix never thought possible. Now a new door opens for Felix as he is mentored and develops his psychic abilities, but this door also brings danger as malevolent forces set their eyes upon him. Tragedy and destruction follow Felix, leaving him no choice but to continue growing and fight back, but danger follows him every step of the way, and failure means death...”

Blog Tour: Cupcakes, Trinkets and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Doidge



Web page: http://wp.me/PP9tA-tE

Title: Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic, Dowser #1

Genre: Urban Fantasy (adult) (new adult)

Approx. 68,000 words

Keywords: fantasy, magic, witches, werewolves, vampires, funny, action

Categories: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, fiction




























Blurb:

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

Pull quotes:

“The customer looked familiar, like maybe he’d been in the bakery a few times before. The vampire, however, was new.” – Chapter One

“I didn’t wet my pants, but I was glad I hadn’t drunk anything all afternoon. Usually I was an eight-glasses-a-day sort of girl.” – Chapter One





























“I was being stalked by an obviously insane vampire. It didn’t get much more terrifying than that.” – Chapter One

“I thought you weren’t going to bite me tonight.” I said, pleased that my voice sounded much calmer than my mind.

He tilted his head and gazed at my neck … actually at my carotid artery. My pulse sped up; I was surprised it could get any higher actually.

“I wasn’t,” he murmured.

“Well, watching my blood move through my veins isn’t going to be helpful then.”  - Chapter Two

“You expect me to follow you out into the pre-dawn to meet some guy who has absolutely no authority over me? Ever heard of email or the phone?” – Jade, Chapter Six

“Maybe a vampire knowing where you lived was sort of like seeing the signature on your own death certificate.” – Chapter Seven

“I wasn’t pleased with my reaction to his touch — like he was a warm cashmere blanket and a cup of dark, hot chocolate rolled into one sexy, well-muscled, dangerous package.” – Chapter twelve

Reviewer quotes:

“Witches, werewolves and vampires...oh my! Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic is a fun-filled trip into a world where bad magic can get a good witch down and power isn't always accessed through hard work and determination ... sometimes it's stolen.” – Headshot Heather, doubleshotreviews.com

“This was a fun, action filled urban fantasy that will also have you running to bake cupcakes! … and I loved the unpredictability of not knowing what would happen next.” – Sarah, Sarah Elizabeth’s Bookshelf

"The mystery and suspense build up to a riveting and mind-blowing conclusion that shows Doidge as the brilliant riddler that she is. A definite five star even without the mouth-watering cupcake teasers. More please!" - Cindi Clubbs, Mommasez...blog, www.ccclubbs.com

"Complete with witches, werewolves, vampires, and necromancers, this novel will keep readers laughing and turning the pages as Jade tries to figure out the truth behind the deaths surrounding her—the deaths that all point to her. " - 4 stars, Shana, A Book Vacation

JUSTICE BLURB:

 “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” –E. Burke

For Det. Joanna Fallon, it’s damn hard being a police officer in Galilee Falls, a city with the highest concentration of superheroes and villains in the country, and working under the specter of the city’s champion, Justice. It’s even harder watching her best friend, the man she’s secretly in love, with planning to marry another woman while keeping the growing relationship with her boss a secret.

When the city’s vilest supervillain, acid spewing Alkaline, escapes from maximum security prison, and an attack close to home, Joanna must contend with her increasing fear and prejudices while struggling to choose between her soul-mate and her new-found love.

With a coy blend of whimsy and vivid imagination, Justice delivers humor and thrills in an action-packed and edgy blend of comic book cool, fantasy-noir, hard-boiled mystery, and bitter-sweet romance. 

GALILEE RISING (BOOK 2) blurb:

Love in the time of superheroes...

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” -Confucius 

The year since Galilee Falls lost its reigning superhero Justice has not been kind to Joanna Fallon. She's lost her best friend, her boyfriend, her badge, even her mind. The city of Galilee Falls hasn't fared much better with supervillain related crime skyrocketing to cataclysmic proportions. Deliverance for the city arrives in the guise of The Royal Triumvirate--King Tempest, Lady Liberty, and Lord Nightingale--who vow to be the heroes the city needs. Salvation for Joanna appears in the brilliant form of Dr. Jem Ambrose, another lost soul in need of saving. But salvation comes with a high price. When Emperor Cain, an old nemesis of The Triumvirate, decides he will stop at nothing to make sure there is no city left to defend, it is up to Joanna to rise not only for her city, for her new love, but for herself as well…

Blog Tour: Reclaiming Souls by Arielle Caldwell












Blurb:
     
When a person dies, sometimes, they are given judgment and sent straight to heaven or hell. Most sit in purgatory while a select few are given a second chance at life. If they screw up and awaken the monster that sleeps dormant inside us all, it’s my job to reclaim their soul and set the balance of nature right again. My name is Devalynn Rose. After my death, I have been tasked as a Soul Collector.
                                                     
Kale swept into my afterlife when he got his second chance. While watching his judgment, I cannot unlock my eyes from his. I am left stunned with feelings of déjà vu.

Kellin is also a Collector. We connect on a deeper level and I can’t help the feelings that overwhelm me for him.
                                                     
Reclaiming souls is a faulty system that desperately needs repair. I am left with two options...to lose my memory and reform the system or keep my memory and nothing changes. With time ticking away, I need to make a choice...but which one?


























Follow Devalynn as she fights her way through her afterlife and tries to save those that mean the most to her.

It didn’t take long for my heart to stop beating. My eyes closed for the last time and death became me...but it wasn’t the end of my life. ~Devalynn

Excerpt:

I followed him to the edge of everything, where the stars began and the pavement ended. I stopped, frozen to the spot.

“It’s okay, you won’t fall. Nothing is going to happen to you,” he reached out for my hand as he jumped out and onto a star. I landed on one behind him and he was right. I didn’t fall.

“This is beautiful,” I huffed out as I followed behind him and jumped from star to star.

“Just wait, it gets better,” he yelled back to me.

I jumped onto a small one, my foot barely fitting on it. I wobbled and put my hands out to balance me. We did this for a while. Before I knew it, we were completely surrounded by nothingness. There were some planets around us and we sat on one of the moons as it circled around. For the first time all day, I felt relaxed and completely calm.

“So, do you like it?” he cocked his head to the side, gauging my answer as he rested back on his elbows.

“I love it. Thank you for bringing me here. I needed this. No one around, nothing to bother me; I don’t have to think about working.” I laid back on the ground of the small moon and watched the stars swirl around above us. I counted three shooting stars within just seconds of each other. “Do you like it up here?”

“It beats being down there, that’s for sure. Why?”

“I don’t know, just wondering. I want to remember earth and what it was like to be alive but I can’t.”

“Dev, you have to stop beating yourself up over it.”

“I know.” He laid down next to me and held my hand. There we were; two unbeating hearts, two souls, two people just floating around the solar system. I never wanted to leave that moment.#

Blog Tour: Forever Love by Deborah Armstrong










New Novel Blows Readers Away with a Whirlwind of Unlikely Romance
Literally and figuratively a match made in heaven tickles hearts of romance fiction fans

CALEDON, Ontario – – Author Deborah Armstrong graces bookshelves with love and affection as she intertwines romance and wit in Forever Love. In this endearing romance fiction, Armstrong touches on one of the most daring decisions of a man—or woman. She snaps readers back to the reality of love at first sight against obsession in this adventure-romantic drama.




























Davina Stuart, farmer and bestselling author of Second Harvest, shares a flight to Los Angeles with Hollywood's latest heartthrob, Quinn Thomas. Three hours of in-flight speed dating and Quinn’s in love.

Davina is not so sure. She’s older and wiser. She’ll settle for a one-night stand but he wants more. Davina’s cows and her children are her life. She’s not so sure about Hollywood and its glamour. Blue jeans, cowboy boots and her pickup truck are more her style. Quinn is tired of the plastic starlets, his empty bed and his lonely heart. He’d give up everything, including his career, for the love of a woman, his woman.

Armstrong’s book follows their whirlwind romance as the widow of two years, who thought her time for romance was over, finds love with a man who has to have her in his life, to love her forever. Armstrong invites readers to witness how Davina learns to face her fears, and how Quinn perseveres to win the heart of his one true love in Forever Love.

About the Author

Deborah Armstrong is a firm believer in genetics. She attributes her love of the English language, reading and writing to her parents. She is thrilled to have passed on her love of books (with the help of her husband, also an avid reader) to her children. Armstrong lives with her husband, three children, two cats and five hundred cows on their dairy farm in Ontario, Canada. When she’s not writing or working on the farm, she enjoys reading, traveling, watching movies and spending time with her family and friends. Armstrong enjoys strong coffee, chocolate milk and single malt scotch in no particular order.
