Super Excerpt


A single gear whirred and clicked into place. A valve opened, letting out a thin plume of grey steam with a quiet hiss. A gold-plated dial moved by a notch. A tiny mallet sprang from its compartment, striking the brass gong - one, two, three, four, five, six times.

Master Tanaka looked up in surprise - an hour of the Hare already? He turned towards the window and the pink light of dawn illuminated his face. The temple bell only now started to ring out the time. He sighed then yawned, rubbing tired eyes. Another night had passed without him noticing.
The elementals inside the clock awoke with a soft purr and the automatic brush began to move swiftly inside the glass cloche. A slot opened in the mahogany pedestal and spat out a piece of paper upon which was written the day’s divination. Hisashige reached for it absentmindedly, his attention focused on the piece of complex clockwork on which he had been working. He glanced briefly at the calligraphy - Oku, ‘a gift’. He smiled to himself and nodded knowingly.
A higher-pitched chime rang eight times – counting out the hours of the Western reckoning. The door slid open and a small boy entered the workshop. With his long and angular face, puffed lips and wide straight nose, he bore no resemblance to Master Tanaka.

‘It came from Kiyō this morning, Father,’ the boy said, presenting Hisashige with a large, ornately packed wooden box.
       ‘Excellent!’ the old master exclaimed.
       He put the box on the workbench beside the clockwork and began to unwrap it eagerly.
       ‘Shūhan-sama was supposed to send me some Walcheren glass.’

He stopped abruptly and his shoulders sank when he saw the crest on the box, in golden leaf – three lines in a circle. He lifted the lid without enthusiasm. Inside was what seemed like a small human head, completely bald.

‘Some gift.’ Hisashige looked at the clock with reproach. ‘It’s just another of Zōzan’s broken dolls.’

 


THE DRAGON KING’S BLESSING
I was standing on the threshold of a cold, dark cave. The Pacific Ocean roared mercilessly against the rocks below and on the horizon; Mount Fuji peered majestically through the clouds.
It was my fourth trip to Japan, but the first one since I had started writing my novel. I was still not sure of what the overarching plot would be, how certain knots in the story would unravel. I was hoping to find an inspiration on my journey.
I found myself on Enoshima by accident. Other plans that we had for that day went awry, and I was stuck browsing the guidebooks for an idea. Enoshima was supposed to have good restaurants and stunning views of Mt. Fuji. I wasn’t disappointed with either; the restaurants had a 90 minute wait for the table, as much sea food as I could stomach for just a few hundred yen, and dark beer brewed locally from sea brine and salted sardines. The Fuji, in Summer usually hidden beyond the haze, that day was in full view, splendid and terrifying across the bay. It was easy to believe the legend of the secret tunnel leading into the heart of the volcano from the island’s bowels.
But the tiny island turned out to be full of something else – dragons. There were dragons everywhere, dragon-shaped fountains, dragon carvings, even dragon faucets in the bathrooms. In the middle of the island there was a shrine of the Owatatsumi, the Dragon King God, built inside a shallow cave, with rows of purple banners in front of the entrance. Recognizing some of the the names on the banners, I consulted the guidebook and discovered that this was where the Japanese artists prayed for guidance and inspiration. And here I was, trying to write a book about dragons in Japan. Could there have been a better omen? I dropped a hundred-yen coin into the offering box, clapped my hands and bowed.
I moved on, discovering more mysteries of the island. The dragon caves. The tunnels. The tide jewels of the Dragon King. The doomed love story between a Goddess and a Dragon. I could barely manage to write all those ideas down. Suddenly, the convoluted plots began to unravel; the pieces of the puzzle were falling into their place, and the main story for the entire saga took shape right before my eyes.
The Dragon King’s blessing proved bountiful. For a hundred yen, it was a bargain.

For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn't want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she's perfect and she's everything. But the feelings he has for her, he's always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they're stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor'easter, there's nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.

Blue Hearts of Mars Book Blast /Giveaway

Check it out guys Blue Hearts of Mars sounds amazing, read all about it here and don´t miss out on the opportunity to read this book and to win the amazing Giveaway the author and I am a reader, not a writte have for U!!!!!



Blue Hearts of Mars by Nicole Grotepas


Retta Heikkinen knows the unspoken rule of society: love between androids and humans is forbidden. A simple enough edict until Hemingway Koskinen spends an evening charming her with his intense gaze, bewitching smile, and sparkling conversation that hints at so much more than the usual obsessions of high school boys. Rules were meant to be cast aside, especially when love beckons.

If only it were as simple as being in love.

Trouble is brewing, not just for Hemingway--for all androids. Secrets have been kept, lies propagated, and Retta soon discovers that a frightening future awaits thousands of androids if she doesn’t do something to stop it. Worse yet, she will lose the one love she’s ever endangered herself for: Hemingway.



Praise

"Nothing like I've read before. A true original story! Everything is so well described. Now if they could make a follow up book and movie, that would be great!" ~Mrs. Z (Amazon)

"I was addicted to this book from the beginning. Life on Mars was very real and not at all a sci fi world I didn't understand . . . I found myself rooting for Retta and Hemingway from the very beginning. Easy reading, couldn't put it down and had it read in a weekend. Waiting for a sequel!" ~TNielsen (Amazon)

"The ending of this book is exceptional. While it was different from what I imagined, the way the author brought in a shocking revelation was amazing. I probably reread the last chapter 3 times letting it sink in and the meaning behind it. It was truly beautiful . . . I would love to see more of Retta and Hemingway!" ~Kat Meyer, (Goodreads)

"I love how the author populated Mars . . . so descriptive and comprehensive . . . I could clearly picture everything as if I was seeing the movie &/or was along for the ride. . . . Retta, the main character, is strong, opinionated, and a great champion for her cause." ~Megan (Amazon)

"I had been in the worst reading slump ever and came across this on Goodreads and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I was pleasantly surprised on how funny and exciting and mysterious it was . . . Mei, Retta's bff, had me laughing out loud quite a bit as well as Retta herself. I'd definitely hang out with those two." ~Deanneluvbooks (Goodreads)

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

When a couple of days ago I became one of the 250 owners of an ARC of Walking Disaster I decided that I needed to buy Beautiful Disaster first and read them both back to back.
I was intrigued about this book for a long time so as soon as I found an excuse to read it I took it, bought a copy of this book and started this rollercoaster ride.
Beautiful Disaster is a contemporary romance about a girl called Abigail, she is running from her previous life and has decided the life she wants to have from that point forward, but once she lays eyes on Bad Boy extraordinaire Travis “Mad Dog” Maddox her little imaginary perfect world starts to crash.
Abby as a character is unbelievable funny, a smartass at heart with a very strong no bullshit personality. Her best friend America or “Mare” for short is the other side of her two girls against the world Team.  When she meets Eastern womanizer and he starts to follow her around she discovers a side of him that makes her fall for him hard and fast.
Travis is a man with issues; he has low self esteem and pent up rage!!!! When he meets Abby and realizes she´s different from every woman he has ever met he decides he wants to have her in his life no matter what.
I really liked BD and Travis is deliciously wicked in a sexy bad boy kinda way.  I´m ecstatic that I got the chance to read this books back to back cause after I finished BD I was left loving the book but with a feeling that I shouldn´t have.
Travis even though drool worthy has serious Issues that sometimes make me want to scream at Abby to run away as fast as she could and other times he was so loving and sweet that he was perfect.  I even thought a time or two that he was two seconds away of beating the crap out of Abbi, that’s how angry he would get damm right scary.
Their relationship was Toxic from every angle but still there was something about Travis that made me impossible to hate him and the book.
Once I finished BD I had an uncontrollable feeling, I needed to get more of Travis and that was a little unsettling cause let’s face it he´s not a boy I would take home. I would ogle him all day??... Hell Yeah!!!!! Be Fu** buddy  Hell no!!! and be in a relationship with someone like him would scare the crap out of me.
Anyway I grabbed WD and started reading, hanging on every word, once I got an inside view of Travis I decided he wasn´t bad at all he was perfect, a little damaged yes, but a perfect match for Abby all they had to do was sort out their issues and WOW.
Even though I knew how everything ended I couldn´t keep my eyes of the book, being inside of Travis head was amazing I think I liked his book more than Abby´s there´s something about him that pulls you in even though you know he´s bad news walking.
The fact that he oozes Sex helps a lot I can tell you *wide grin* no freaking complain there LOL!!!!!
The only thing that sort off rubbed me wrong was the ending to his book, won’t say a thing cause that would ruin it for you guys, but something about that ending just made go mee!!!
I would have been happy if certain Vegas scene wasn´t skipped over on his POV, but It wouldn´t be fair to drop a point for a decision the author made that doesn´t change the outcome of the story at all.
If I had rated this books separated Beautiful Disaster would  be a 3 maybe 3.5 stars and Walking Disaster would have been a 4 or 4.5 but as I read them together and that made me appreciated more due to both POV´s this books get a

OMG!!!!!! I loved loved loved this book Surah is Kick Amazing. She´s by far the coolest female lead I´ve read about. With her purple hair and all her power (both Magic and position) she´s a freaking princess for crying out loud but she kicks ass with the best, she’s smart and at the same time very lady like, (just like me) LOL!!!!! yeah right!!!!!

And please don´t get me started with Charlie he´s just perfect for her a common boy that fell in love with a princess, he´s valiant and very very hawt, he plays the guitar... did I ever tell you I´m a sucker for guitar players. sigh!!! They are perfect together but the world isn´t perfect around them and so everything goes from bad to worse rather quickly.

Black Heart can kiss my not so royal behind, he´s gonna end up very very badly and by the way the author likes to finish a series I hope he gets mauled by Samson very very slowly, damn I´ll even barbeque him so he doesn’t taste funny.

OMG!!!!!!!! Samson he´s the best ever, a beautiful dangerous blue tiger the size of a building (well not really but he´s really really big) he loves Surah above all, he´s the sweetest most beautiful thing I´ve laid eyes upon and I wish he was a man and be happily ever after with Surah!!!!!!!!

The plot is amazing H.D. Gordon is an amazing story teller that keeps you in your toes from page one and you end up pulling your hair out by the end just perfect!!!!


This book is def. not a 5 star book for me no, no, no, no it´s by far a
 
 
Buy it here!!!!
 
 
Now Now now after power stalking the author I actually managed to follow her to one of the characters on this book, and after lots of groveling and deal striking and butt kissing he agreed to come her today!!!!!!
 
Let´s welcome Samson!!!!!!!
 
Hi Samson I´m so glad you agreed to this interview, I know you only let a select few be near you and as far as I know only the Princess talks to you on a regular basis.
It is truly an honor to have you here.
1.       I know Surah saved you when you where a cub, what happened that day?
I was with a friend, in an area of the jungle that we had no business being in, as we were both just cubs at the time. The Great Serpent appeared out of nowhere, rearing up over us with the hood around its neck spread wide. I told Mila, the female who’d accompanied me, to run, and she did. I do not blame her for this; two feline cubs are no match for a fully matured Great Serpent. I managed to evade the serpent’s first few strikes, but I was too slow, and it became apparent that I would not win the fight. Surah appeared in front of me, just appeared in that way she has, and I was so terrified that I thought she was just a trick of my mind. She saved me. That’s what it comes down to. She saved my life.
2.       Was it difficult for you to live in the city after leaving in the jungle with your kind?
I am a beast, and my instincts are to be free, to run wild, and living with Surah has forced me to suppress these instincts. Fear still sets me off, the pumping of hot blood through veins, the hammering of a heart. I can smell it when people are afraid of me, and most people are. It makes me hungry. It makes me dangerous. Living among Two-Legs has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but Surah is worth it.
3.       You became Surah´s fiercest protector, is it a hard job?
Surah is a hard one to look after. The girl is always getting herself into trouble, but you will find that she is very resourceful. Protecting her is an honor. But it does make for close calls. All the better, anyway, because I would go mad if I didn’t get the chance to tear something apart every once in a while.
4.       Who is the greatest love of your life?
Surah. I love her more than the moon loves the night and the sun loves the day. Surah is my purpose.
5.       What is your greatest fear?
That I will fail in my mission to protect her. I cannot allow this to happen. I will not.
6.       If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Why would I give thought to such a thing?
 
7.       When you met Charlie, there was something about him that made you trust him somewhat. Can you actually know when a person is being honest or is just an instinct?
I am a beast, dear. I am fueled and powered by instinct. I can smell a dark soul as surely as I can smell a coming rain.
8.       Do you have any regrets about leaving your life behind in order to be with Surah?
Regrets are for Two-Legs. I lose no sleep over the matter.
9.       What’s the favorite adventure with the Princess?
Oh, there are many. Surah is a fierce warrior, and she is magnificent to stand beside in a battle.  Anytime I get to kill next to her is always a pleasure.
10.   What´s your happiest memory?
All of my memories, good and bad, involve Surah. The other memories, the memories before I met her, are not things I wish to think about, so I don’t. I think when she told me she loved me for the first time I became a different being, like an altering of my soul.
11.If you could become a man for one day, what would you do with your time?
Sleep. Eat. Surah. Not necessarily in that order.
Thank you for being here Samson I hope to keep hearing from you and the Princess, the doors of Book Addict are always open to you and yours.
OMG!!!!!! Samson was here,impresive hell yeah,beautiful OMG yes, yes, yes and guess what he let me touch his perfectly  soft blue fur and I just... I just....

Synopsis




Gretchen Finch’s job would be much easier if she weren’t alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature—the Night Demon—that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it’s impossible, she’s beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.

Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he’s about to find out more than he’d ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.

Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.

Also, check out the first book in the series, Night Walker, as well as the prequel, Night Thief.

I loved this Book for so many reasons that I could write a Book just talking about how amazing it was.

For starters I live about six hours from the place this book takes place in and the amount of research the author did was just WOW!!!! Everything was spot on, the names of the places, the spelling, locations I felt I was reading something written by a native of the region.

In case you are wondering I live in Tabasco, Mexico so yeah I’m pretty close to Yucatan.  That was wicked!!!

Lukas is a tortured soul and you guys know how much I love a hero in need of rescuing LOL!!! He is tired of his existence and is looking desperately for a way out. In comes Gretchen a gorgeous red head that is aiming for his heart even if she doesn´t know it yet.

Gretchen is attracted to Lukas, his brain and his drive to uncover all the Mayan secrets as well as his perfectly built body and beautiful face has her wrapped around his pinky finger, so much that she doesn´t notice all the little strange details about him.

In might Demon this Power couple faced an enemy of enormous proportions, meant not to harm just them but all human kind.

The plot was amazing and perfectly weaved, Lisa Kessler is one of my favorite authors ever I could read her books day in day out, nonstop. This book is action packed and intriguing the ending was amazing, I can´t wait to get my hands on the next one.

Hawt can´t describe some of the best amazing scenes I’ve read In a while, I had to grab my hand fan cause really it was just WOW!!!!! Lukas damm you are GOOD!!!!!!! All I can say is Lucky Gretchen hehehehe!!!.

Other thing I loved is the opportunity to know a little about other couples we´ve meet on the previous books, I´ve missed them a lot and even though this wasn´t the best scenario possible it was comforting to be able to see them even for a little while on extreme conditions.

All I have to say is SQUEEE!!!!!!!!!

Wolf Spell by M.R, Polish Blog Tour/Giveaway

 
Hi guys welcome to my stop on the Wolf Spell Blog Tour, this time around I want to introduce you guys to an amazing author M.R Polish is fantastic, I managed "with my very impresive ninja skills" to get an interview with her, so check it out. OHHH and don´t forget the giveaway the author and SupaGurl Tours have for ya =D

But first let me show you
WOLF SPELL


 
With a death starts a new beginning...
 
Eighteen-year-old Esmerelda thinks she’s just a normal girl, but all of that changes the day of her mom’s funeral, when a warlock, intent on using her special powers, kidnaps her. Powers she didn’t know existed.
 
Thrown in the middle of a magical battle, Es struggles to learn her magic while fleeing both vampires and warlocks, at the same time, hunting for the witches that can help defeat her adversary. The only problem is that they are dead. Thankfully, she has the help of Jarak—her Guardian—who quickly captures her heart, but she wonders if she can win his?

How would you describe Wolf Spell?     
Wolf Spell is a great story of discovery about life, love, magic and guardians. I really wanted to write something different, yet keep with things that readers knew, my take on wolves with their humans changed the werewolf lore that we are accustomed to reading. Along with witches and crossbreeds who are vampires linked with magic. This story is about Esmerelda and her life as a young woman and her journey as she learns about her past and her future, life and death, magic and wolves.
Which character you had most fun writing?  
 I think I would have to say Ian, because his whole demeanor was different and he made me smile with his thoughts. I loved his playful banter and persistence.
What was your main source of inspiration for the story?     
I have always loved stories with magic, so that started it, but I would have to say that through the whole thing, music inspired me the most while writing.
What should readers expect from Wolf Spell?       
Action and fun. I tried to make sure there were no dull or boring moments and the characters agreed by pushing me just as hard I pushed them. I also have some moments that I thought were comical and laughed, I hope my readers do too!
What was the book that most influenced your life — and why?      
Wow, that’s tough. I have always been enthralled with books. I’m not sure it was the books as much as the teachers. My fourth grade teacher read to us daily, the stories where so amazing I remember sinking in my chair and could picture every scene as if I was there. My fifth grade teacher, who was my favorite, Mrs. Presley, encouraged my writing even then. It was in her class that I won my first story entry for the newspaper. She told me I could do it and I believed her. So a shout out to her… I did it!
 If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?    
*Yes, I am laughing* I thought about it, a lot, the day I published it, but really no. I love my characters, their story, all of it. It was fun, and yet challenging at the same time to write for a younger group.  Each book will only grow as I grow.
What are you reading right now?   
Right now I am reading Shifting Pride by Laura Diamond
 Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?  
Don’t give up. Some things are hard, but if you ever found out you’re a witch, have fun with it J So maybe not the message in the book, but honestly, never give up.
How has your environment/upbringing colored your writing?    
I can say that my environment right now has helped me dig in deeper to my imagination. I think it has something to do with being a mom to four kids. I want them to enjoy their childhood and use their imagination, in the process, mine has broadened.
When did you first know you wanted to be a writer?   
A LONG time ago. I can say that I have been writing for many years. As I said earlier, my first writing contest that I ever submitted to and won, was in the 5th grade. I knew then that my imagination could be placed on paper.

Why are things sent by car called shipments, and things sent by ships called cargo?   
To confuse us of course!
Why is it good to be a Daddy's girl, but bad to be a Momma's boy?    
Honestly? I think society has it to where men are afraid to show their emotional side without being criticized for it. So if they’re attached to their mom they show a softer side. And yet, women are revered for being strong and in control, something they can get from their mom but again, society will claim it as a father’s character. So if they’re a daddy’s girl, they are strong willed, and stubborn, yet can still be women.
Is it true cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?    
 I’m not sure, I asked one once upon a time, but all they could do was laugh… Maybe if the clown would stop yelling “Stop, that’s my funny bone!” while they are eating him, they could stop laughing enough to give me a straight answer J

Author Bio:



If I am not producing magic potions, traveling to far off lands and falling in love with mythical creatures, then I am awake - tripping over toys, chasing my kids and conjuring ways to unknowingly booby trap our house for my husband. (Yes its unknowingly, I swear I never placed the tiny plastic army man in his path for him to find in the dark of midnight!) I love my husband and my four wonderful children (all of whom help with the booby traps!) We are Nevadians and are happy, although I envy and miss the beautiful mountains of Idaho. I love writing Young Adult and Adult Fantasy and Paranormal with Romance, although you never know what could show up in my books!
