ABOUT THE BOOK
 
It’s been three years since Michael’s death, and life isn’t any easier. The gift bestowed upon me has only grown stronger. I see the dead, everywhere. Those who have remained earthbound are looking for answers, or have messages for their loved ones. That’s what I do. I help resolve those questions, then assist them in crossing over.
Lately, I’ve had a recurring nightmare—a guy, badly injured in a car crash. Each time I’ve called out to him, he never answers. I’ve never even seen his face.
My mentor, Lucy Crow, believes he’s still alive, and I’m supposed to help him. That my dreams are not just subconscious thoughts; they’re premonitions.
For the first time ever, I will leave my reclusive life in Alaska. My best friend Emily is taking me to California for spring break. She thinks it’s time for me to find someone—to start living again. But what I need to find is the answer to my nightmares.
Little do I know…my answer will find me.

The Moonlight Market

by Aidee Ladnier

GENRE:  LGBTTQ, Fantasy & Paranormal, New Adult

mediakit_bookcover_moonlightmarket

BLURB:

College senior Cory Long tracked his missing sister to the magical Moonlight Market to bring her home. Instead, he found a disorienting world of performers and hawkers, bizarre sights and sounds, and one very familiar showman, Sanderson Beets. Like a drowning man, he latched onto Sanderson, trusting him to navigate the twists and turns of the Market as unerringly as he had steered Cory to passion in their furtive trysts on campus.

But Sanderson was tired of being the quickie in the alley.

Sanderson Beets had escaped the Moonlight Market to attend college, hoping to settle into a normal life, maybe meet someone and fall in love. To obtain that new life he made a dangerous bargain. And when the sinister woman known as the Weaver of Dreams is involved, second chances always come with strings attached…and sacrifices. Sanderson’s debt has come due, and the only payment he has to offer is Cory, and their chance at a relationship.

Mama Says:
This was a refreshingly non-stereotypical mm fantasy romance, though I’d say New Adult didn’t really fit the bill, it was more adult really.  The plot did mirror some other paranormal fantasies I’d read but I still found this particular tale to be original and well-paced.  The two main characters drive the story, so there isn’t as much world-building as I would have liked but what we did get was marvelous.  Very reminiscent of a certain London Below if you know what I mean.  I’m a huge fan of all things magical and mythical so this was a lot of fun and I’d be interested in reading more from this author.

Saucy Excerpt:

He almost ignored it.

Almost.

Tiny bells tinkled nearby.

They sounded closer.

His skin tightened with goose bumps.

Niari glided into the pool of light cast by the lantern hanging on the back of the tent. Her long, inky dress brushed the bells on her ankles and pulled the shadows forward with her.

“Your debt is coming due.” Her trilling, accented voice floated over the noise from the fairway beyond. In front of the tent children giggled and laughed, the calliope blared out its joyous concert, and the lanterns burned away the darkness. But Sanderson stood in the shadows behind…with her.

Sweat coated his palm, and it slipped from the curtain. He swiped at the bead of perspiration on his upper lip, the pit of his stomach icing into a lump.

“I found someone.” He blurted out the words. “A lost soul. Someone who’s lost something.”

Panic bloomed in Sanderson’s chest. Was he actually going to offer Cory to the Weaver? Cory who just wanted to find his missing sister. Cory of the soft hair, bitable nipples, and beautiful, slim c—. Who made Sanderson feel normal. Like a regular guy.

“Good.” Her smile widened, filled with too many tiny teeth that gleamed bright in the lantern light. “Are they tasty and ripe?”

“Madame?” Sanderson’s gut twisted at the hard glitter in her eyes. A chill crept down his spine. She looked…hungry.

He blinked. Niari stood before him, still and silent, waiting, just a woman again. The malevolent flash must have been a trick of the dim light. He shrugged off the unease and shook the numbness from his fingers.

Synopsis: Cat has never been a social butterfly. The only reason she even agreed to go to the stupid Halloween party was because her friend and room mate Shelly wanted to attend. When she gets spooked upon almost falling into bed with the host, she’s convinced it was all a big mistake. And what’s worse, now people are stalking her wherever she goes!Alexander Broderick has been hosting his annual Halloween parties for over a century. While his contemporaries use them as an excuse to engage in all kinds of debauchery, his own motives are more benign. He wants to converse, to get a feel for the times they live in through its people. But when Cat walks into his house, he forgets himself and is compelled to seduce her. There’s only one problem: she’s a so-called Blood Bride – a mortal woman whose blood smells so delicious that every vampire in town wants to drain her.

He knows he’s the only one wanting to keep her safe, but can’t act as long as she wants nothing to do with him. And then there’s his own growing hunger to contend with. Can he protect her from the rest of the vampire community, as well as his own lethal cravings?

It’s the ultimate forbidden romance; the love between a mortal and a vampire. What is it that makes flirting with death so utterly tempting? Read on and find out.

AUDIO EXCERPT

Mama Says:
Ok,  I am totally hooked on this entertaining little book!  While it may have been predictable, it was still a great deal of fun.  I think I enjoyed the audio better than I would have the ebook, simply because of Mr. Edwards’ marvelous voice acting.  And there was amazing production value- even changing the tones and adding effects for phone calls and such, which really added to the experience.  I think there isn’t enough value placed on books solely for entertainment, as if we must only ever read things which impart valuable life lessons. Pshaw I say to that! What is wrong with a little candy every now and then? Nothing.  And this wasn’t the cheap nasty candy but more of a gourmet selection.  I’d definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator!

Synopsis
 

Former homicide detective Nicole Foster has hit rock bottom. Driven off the force by her treacherous partner and lover, she’s flat broke and struggling with a gambling addiction. All Nicole has left is the dream of a warm bed at a homeless shelter and the haunting memories of three-year-old Kelsey Chase—whose murder case ended her career.

As Nicole obsesses over the old facts, she realizes everything about that case felt off: a disinterested mom, a suicidal pedophile, and too many questions left unanswered. When the little girl’s grieving father begs Nicole for help, she’s drawn back into the investigation…and given one shot at redemption.

But the deeper Nicole digs, the more evil she uncovers, including betrayals that hit painfully close to home. Will a shocking discovery be the key to finally getting justice for Kelsey and resurrecting her own life?

the-sound-of-rain
Mama Says:
Reminiscent of some great vintage thrillers, The Sound of Rain ranges from exciting to literary.  Many descriptive passages read like a book of prose while some of the action is positively nail biting.  I took a little longer than I would have liked to get into the head of the main character, but she becomes stronger the more involved she is and some things which seemed unbelievable make a lot more sense later on.  It’s always difficult to go into detail while avoiding spoilers, however, I will say that this book will have you reading in one if you are a lover of psychologically gripping page turners.

What fiction most influenced your childhood, and what effect did those stories have on THE SOUND OF RAIN

I absolutely loved both Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books. A friend of our family had both series and whenever my mom was visiting I’d find a way to snatch a copy – and return it later.

I don’t think it would be hard for your readers to see how those series helped create the path for the writer that I’d become one day. I loved mysteries of all kinds. I also liked horror. When I was older I read a lot of Stephen King and I especially loved the books in which he made the central character a child or teenager.

Later I started reading a lot more nonfiction crime stories. I think that reading really shaped me more than the fiction. I just couldn’t get it out of my head that real people could do such terrible things to each other for reasons that I could not quite understand. Probably no one can. If you think about it…why would a mother kill her child? Why would a man murder his wife? For money? For greed? None of those things really makes sense. Yes, we understand that’s the reason that the police give us or the prosecution puts forth. But really? There has to be more to the story.

That’s why I’ve written books in both non fiction and fiction – yet all are crime related. I’m always digging into a case, thinking about what happened, then using what I’ve learned from my research in my fiction. I’m always finding interesting details and then working them into a crime story. By the time I get to the end of the writing process whatever “true” nugget I’ve started with is mostly gone.

Indelible: Beneath His Ink
Inger Iversen
(Teal and Trent #2)
Publication date: December 12th 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Former Marine, Trent Reed, is in desperate need of a Hail Mary.

With each failed attempt to convince his woman to pack up and move to Kentucky, his past finds some new way to rear its ugly head. But when his pregnant ex plows into his life, all hell breaks loose—unearthing parts of his past he wished would stay buried.

Two weeks of vacation with her man? Hell yeah, that is exactly what Teal Lofton’s libido needs. And after surviving seven months apart, their reunion doesn’t disappoint. What she didn’t account for was an unfortunate encounter with people from Trent’s past. A racist, a druggie, and a double-barreled shotgun, culminate into a vacation that will alter the course of her life forever.

teaser4-1

EXCERPT:

Trent sat in his truck, just down the street from his home, holding the tiny box in his hand. Deftly he flipped it over and over again with his fingers, watching the burgundy velvet spin. When was the right time to ask a woman to marry you? His fear was that his past would constantly find its way back into his present. Could he drag Teal into muck and mire of his past?

After buying the ring and allowing Katie to fawn over it, he’d spoken to Logan. Though his friend had tried to assuage his concerns, he’d only added to them. Logan’s past was still a major topic of concern with Katie, so much so, they were seeking counseling. Trent couldn’t imagine fucking up Teal’s life so bad she’d need to talk to some doctor about his failures.

Logan had promised they’d both agreed it was necessary, but Trent could hear the disquiet in his best friend’s voice. He feared losing her and his children. And while Logan and Trent faced different demons, both fought a battle in which losing would cost them more than they could afford.

For the first time since he and Teal discussed moving in together, Trent wondered if moving to Vermont might just be the better option. He wondered if he could sacrifice the freedom of living without a mortgage and being his own boss. How selfish was it of him to demand Teal sacrifice her job and security, when he hadn’t considered doing the same?

Ike
Trudging my way back, I safely make it back inside our compound. Slipping inside through one of the sliding glass doors on the lower level, I make my way back up to our living quarters. The stench of the dried blood from the lost souls is enough to knock anyone off their feet. I don’t even know what time it is, but I’m heading straight for my shower, wanting to cleanse myself thoroughly.
As soon as my bedroom door closes, I toss the dangerous weapon to the ground, the needles and blood reaching the carpet at the same time. I pull off my shirt, kick off my socks and shoes, and begin unbuttoning my pants. I make a beeline for my closed bathroom door, and throw it open, already anticipating the feeling of the hot water along my shoulder blades. I’ve been wound up too tight lately.
I don’t anticipate the hot steam that attacks my face or the sound of running water coming from my shower. My mind begins racing as I dash around the room, headed for my bedside drawer where I keep my loaded gun. I grip it tightly as I approach the hot air pouring out of the bathroom. I swallow, my heartbeat speeding up. Taking small steps, I try not to make my presence known. All my defenses are up, and I want to know who is toying with me.

 Mama Says:

In accordance with similar warnings, let me preface this by saying this book will not be for everyone.  It's dark (um ya the title sorta leads you to that...) it's emotional (well Kira Adams isn't all sunshine and rainbows) and it gets ugly.  Even after the horrific events in books 1 and 2, I don't think I could have been prepared for this third book.  Ike and Phoenix and Cullen oh my!  Things get twisted, and creepy and you just never know who to trust until the last few chapters, and even then there are some surprises.  If you like horror with strong characters, you will love the Darkness Falls Series!  Phoenix is constantly put through the ringer and coming out on the other side, but this time might be her last stand.  Grab the whole set on sale this week!

Title: Crossroads Saga
Author: Mary Ting
Genre: YA Fantasy
Blurb:
* * * READERS FAVORITE GOLD AWARD WINNER 2012–YOUNG ADULT * * *
***Based on a dream the author had in high school-chapter 1 & 2***
Protecting her from the fallen was his duty.
Falling in love was never part of his plan.
Loving her was forbidden.
Being with her was all that mattered, even if it meant he would be exiled for all eternity.
Claudia Emerson’s life is about to change when her good friend, who coincidentally shares the same first and last name, dies in a tragic accident. Distraught at the loss of her friend, Claudia’s dreams become tumultuous, and through them she mysteriously travels to another world called Crossroads. There, she unexpectedly meets Michael, a nephilim–half angel, half human. Now that she’s been there, fallen and demons are after her, suspecting she must be special, and it is up to Michael and the other nephilim to protect her. Her dream becomes a nightmare as more secrets are revealed about who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves most.
Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.
