Synopsis
 
A deadly pandemic. Five groups of survivors. One destination.
“The funny thing about fight-or-flight was that sometimes flight
didn’t cooperate when fight failed you. There was always freeze, but no one
ever talked about freeze, because no one ever wanted to admit they weren’t
strong enough to fight and were too scared to flee.”—Idaho survivor
“She had killed two of those men and not shed a tear. Even as she
replayed it in her head, she felt no remorse. No, it was more than that. She
was glad… happy she had done it. She wasn’t sure she knew who she was
anymore..”—California survivor.
“If the human race was to survive, they’d have to dig deep and
find the strength to take back their homes.”—Florida survivor
“She moved on to the bed to lay beside him and leaned in so their
heads were touching and held on to him until his last breath. ‘Be at peace,
Dave, and keep a seat warm for me.’”—Massachusetts survivor.
“Eric’s voice was distant, as if water had filled her ears. The
room was too stuffy, too small. Rising, she shook her head and turned, fleeing
from the place she had lost Shawn.”—Indiana survivor.
A deadly virus born of good intentions ravages the planet, leaving
humans on the bottom of the food chain as the infected mutate into creatures
born of myth and nightmares.
As the military sets out to gather the healthy inside the walls of
a biolab located in the central United States, the fight for survival begins for
anyone willing to step beyond the safety of their own front door.
Follow five groups of survivors as they journey from California,
Florida, Idaho, Indiana, and Massachusetts in an epic journey to find, not only
what’s left of their government, but their independence, true love, and the
strength to survive in a world bent on breaking them.

Aeonian Kiss by Nicki Scalise – Release Day – July 26th, 2014 – Giveaway


AEONIAN KISS by Nicki Scalise
Revenants in Purgatory Book 2

What happens to the dead when they die? Do they go to Heaven? To Hell? On a luxury cruise?

It wasn’t a question Olivia Brennan ever thought to ask. After all, once you’ve been to Hell and back, how much worse can things get? Her harrowing descent has already cost her everything – her home, her career, the man she loves. But when an enemy resurfaces looking to settle a score, she learns there’s more to lose than she ever imagined.

Purgatory harbors more secrets than the depths of Hell, and Olivia has landed smack dab in the middle of their tangled web. Faced with an impossible choice, she must reach into the darkest parts of her soul for the strength she needs to save everyone she loves. But even if she succeeds, will she ever be the same again?

Maybe some questions are better left unanswered. If there’s one thing experience has taught her, it’s that the universe loves to kick her ass.

Teaser #1 


Zane hit the floor hard, landing on his shoulder, and that’s about the time I freaked out. I dropped to my knees next to him. I shook him, patted his cheeks, and screamed his name, but received no response. I didn’t know anything about his “gift,” as he called it. Had he just overloaded? Had I put him in some sort of weird, undead coma? Had he simply fallen asleep because the “show” bored him?
I grabbed a glass of water from my nightstand and splashed it in his face, but still got nothing. Tossing the glass aside, I looked around the room for other options, but saw none. Deciding to go get help, I jumped to my feet. Devon was right next door, after all.

I stopped halfway down the stairs, realizing if I woke Devon then I’d have to tell him what had happened. What Zane had seen. Nope, that wasn’t an option. I juked back and forth on the step, having trouble deciding if I should run back up or down. I finally decided on down. My phone was downstairs. I could call someone. I ran into the kitchen and swiped it off the counter where I’d left it when I’d come in to make tea.

I tore back through the house and ran back upstairs. Who could I call? Portia and Tore were out of the question for the same reasons as Devon. Not to mention they weren’t in the know about Zane’s gift. My heart pounded harder as it dawned on me. There was one other option, but the question was, should I call him?

I made it back into my room to find Zane still heaped on the floor. The situation constituted an emergency. Drake would know what to do. They had been friends long enough that he’d have to know how to fix this. Even if he didn’t want to speak to me, surely he’d want to help Zane. At the very least he’d probably want to know that I’d “broken” his best friend.

Teaser #2

As we lay together listening to the clock tick and the deliverymen going in and out of my new place, something inside me started to hurt, too. I tried to wipe away an unexpected tear as it danced down my cheek. I’d always known I needed Devon, but until that very moment, I’d never fully understood how much he needed me in return. My heart ached thinking about the pain he must have suffered in my absence. Just imagining losing him made me want to hold on and never let go again.

Even though I was still very much in love with Drake, as I lay there with Devon, I realized there would always be a part of my heart that was his and his alone. No man would ever be able to touch it or steal it away. That part of my heart wished we were more than friends. The little part knew we were perfect for each other and hated any woman he was with because she wasn’t me. That part of me knew — with one hundred percent certainty — that in another life, there would be more to us than just a platonic love.


I believe sometimes it’s possible to have a relationship with someone that transcends being friends or lovers. It’s something more tangible, and only the two people in that relationship understand it, yet neither could ever explain it to an outsider. It’s the very definition of beauty and peace.

It was him.
It was me.
It was us.
He was my Devon and I was his Olivia. He was my butt munch. I was his dork face. He was the love of my other life, and I, the love of his.
Teaser #3

With Mourning Inamorata in my hands, I sat on the edge of my bed. My fingers traced over the bumpy, raised surface of the paint. I imagined Drake in his studio working on it and his hand resting where mine was. Another piece of my heart broke. It was the closest contact I’d probably ever have with him again, and we were separated by unmerciful time. Drake longing in the past, me longing in the present. The connection felt just as strong and somehow just as distant as it always had.

I wiped away my tears and set the painting down on the bed. I’d only had a couple hours of shuteye, but I couldn’t go back to sleep now. Everything was too painful. I didn’t need a reminder that all I had left of Drake was a painting and a haunting version of what once had been.

Teaser #4

A pale moon hung in the crimson-stained sky, surrounded by ominous storm clouds. I stood on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Below me was nothing but slate and darkness. A fierce, warm wind blew, yet the black water barely rippled. A gust blew the skirt of my long black gown. The material blew in waves behind me. The long bell-sleeves caught in the breeze as I raised my hand. The air felt thick, like wet sand slipping through my fingers. I closed my eyes to allow the wind invitation to my touch, but something about it felt wrong… very wrong.

Brother by James Fredericks


Brother

 I love a good suspense novel.  That means smart and inventive.  A book that doesn’t assume I don’t understand.  Brother by James Fredericks is just that; an intelligent, fast paced, emotionally compelling story that throws in just enough roller coaster to make me smile.

     Brother is about Chase and Jared Riordan.  Identical twins who couldn’t be more different, and distant; but as they each face a manipulative and dangerous foe, they learn more about each other and themselves than they had ever expected to.

I loved every moment of this book.  It was beautifully executed.  James Fredericks shows us a varied range of emotion as we experience the bonds of brotherhood and the bonds of friendship.  I love that the protagonists are completely different in so many ways and those differences are complex; the terms by which they live and the laws that rule them.  Each character was rich and vibrant, beautifully adding to the story’s journey.  If you love a great suspense/ thriller, please read Brother, you won’t regret it.

Subprime Factor by Jeffrey D. Schlaman


Subprime Factor

I always love a good bout of intrigue and mystery, but it’s even better when you get to learn something.  Subprime Factor by Jeffrey D. Schlaman is just that.  Schlaman takes us on a journey that is about what is happening right in front of our eyes, mortgage fraud and the economy.  When four college buddies meet for a camping weekend, little do they know that they are being watched and tracked by some of the most powerful and corrupt people in the United States.  They must test the bonds of friendship in order to survive.

This was a story rich in character and filled with redemption and loyalty as well as betrayal.  While we get to enjoy the suspense and conspiracy, Schlaman also educates us on the reasons behind our current economical situation.  How the housing market got to where it is currently and who is responsible.  Even if not for the current state of the housing market and economy, there is an abundance of information regarding Wall Street, Hedge funds, how banks operate, etc.  It’s like having a non-fiction book about finance wrapped up in a fabulous fiction package.

     Subprime Factor is a wonderful ride and well worth the time to read, whether you love a good action novel or you want to learn more about the housing market.  Pick it up.

Considering SomeplacElse by B.L. Lindstrom


Have any of you ever wanted to work some place else?  I know I have and author B. L Lindstrom has created the place where we would all love to be employed… SomeplacElse.

Considering_Someplace_Else

      Among the desert landscapes of Arizona sits SomeplacElse, an experimental community that has perfected the concept of Utopia.  However, this community is about to go toe-to-toe with a millionaire running for governor and the out come will determine the future of all.

We follow Norm Lawson on his search for employment, which leads us to… yes, SomeplacElse.  Once we are introduced to this amazing community and the people within, we are then introduced to Adam Wainwright, an extremely lucky, yet intellectually lacking, millionaire running for the governorship of Arizona.  What ensues is a tale of love, friendship, betrayal, murder and redemption that will compel you to the end.

This book was a wonderful surprise as it was just a wonderful read.  I wasn’t sure what I was getting in to, but once B.L. Lindstrom takes us to SomeplacElse you can’t stay away.   SomeplacElse is the place most us dream of, with engaging characters and a compelling story.  Mr. Lindstrom describes his tale as a modern myth, but it’s just a great story.  I encourage everyone to partake in Considering SomeplacElse.

The Magdalen: A Novel by Bonnie Jones Reynolds


The novel The Magdalen by Bonnie Jones Reynolds is an amazing journey that most of us have been exposed to in other forms for most of our lives, but this time it is different.  The main players are all there, but not as we have been told about them previously.

This is the story of Joshuah, Merriam, Yeshua, Judah and the rest of those characters that we have come to know in other familiar names.  This is the re-telling of the New Testament that many people would rather not see, but in my humble opinion is essential, as it allows the mind, heart and soul to make a choice.  It contains all the things we love about a good book.  This is a voyage back in time that could quite possibly show people an amazing future.

THe Magdalen

I really loved this book.  It’s a long book, I’ll give you that, and I felt at times a little heavy handed in terms of what is being “taught”, but over all it was fantastic.  Bonnie Jones Reynolds has taken the “Greatest Story Ever Told” and made it greater.  Each of the characters we know from the Bible, is different and real.  They are strong and likeable, something that’s essential.  We are introduced to a whole new understanding of what God may be.   Not only do we see a truly Gnostic version of the Story of Jesus’ life, but we are also introduced to the history of the Jewish people, that I’m sure many are completely unaware, as I was.   I was drawn in and held to the end.

This is a novel that many will find radical and controversial, but it’s a story that has been longing to be told.   If you have an open mind and heart to hear about a message of Joy and Love, then please read this book.
