Writer Wednesday

I hope you had a beautiful and heart-warming Christmas weekend. I love this in-between week of little work and lots of playing with friends and family. This year is especially fun because we're actually going somewhere. Woohoo!!!

Since I'm swamped with laundry and packing, I just have a moment to share this week's post over on my writer's blog. Last week, I provided an outline of my revision process and this week I get into more details about the first half. If you're a writer, you may want to check it out.

That's all for the week. Have a safe and happy new year!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

That is all. Now go spend time with your family. I am!

Today I'm giving away an ebook of Girl Under Glass by Monica Enderle Pierce PLUS Soul Savers Swag.

Girl Under Glass

What do you do when you’re trapped between death and the devil? To protect her young daughter from a madman and a tyrant, Rachel Pryne must trust an enemy—one of the alien warriors who conquered Earth.

It is 2032, the Ohnenrai—Earth’s humanoid alien conquerors—orbit the planet, and Terran reproduction is failing. Rachel, a trained medic, is struggling to protect her seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, from the sexual predation of their penal colony’s leader. Having fathered the girl by rape, he now intends to take her on her eighth birthday, only six weeks away.

Then Rachel finds her unlikely champion—an injured Ohnenrai soldier who appears in her yard one stormy evening. She knows she may be choosing death over the devil in trusting this warrior, but she doesn’t know that her trust, and her DNA, will make her one of the most important and endangered people to ever set foot aboard an Ohnenrai starship.

Equal parts science fiction, suspense, and romance, Girl Under Glass moves from a post-apocalyptic wilderness in the American Pacific Northwest to a high-tech world aboard an alien starship furnished with all the stolen comforts of Earth. Readers meet Rachel Pryne, whose parents' lifelong and life-ending connection to the Ohnenrai has set her upon a path she never wanted to travel. And they're introduced to Ehtishem, an Ohnenrai soldier who exists to save his dying people, but who faces enemies from within and without his own military. 

The only possible solution to the Ohnenrai’s extinction lies within Rachel, but all she wants to do is protect her daughter and see Earth’s alien conquerors go straight to hell.

Today I'm giving away a signed copy of Chosen by Denise Grover Swank PLUS a Soul Savers Coffee Mug!


Chosen (The Chosen #1)

Everything Emma Thompson owns fits in a suitcase she moves from one roach infested motel to another. She and Jake, her five year old son who can see the future, are running from the men intent on taking him. Emma will do anything to protect him even when it means accepting the help of a stranger named Will. Jake insists she needs Will, but Emma's never needed help before. And even though she's learned to trust her son, it doesn't mean she trusts Will. 

Mercenary Will Davenport lives in the moment. Hauling Emma to South Dakota should have been an easy job, but his employer neglected to tell him about Emma's freaky son and the gunmen hot on her trail. Instinct tells him this job is trouble, but nothing can prepare him for Jake's proclamation that Will is The Chosen One, who must protect Emma from the men hunting her power. A power she doesn't know she has. 

Will protects Emma and Jake on a cross-country chase from the men pursuing them, while struggling with memories from his past, his apprehension of Jake, and his growing attraction to Emma. Will's overwhelming urge to protect Emma surprises him, especially since it has nothing to do with his paycheck and possibly everything to do with the tattoo Jake branded on his arm. Rich and powerful men are desperate to capture Emma, and Will must discover why before it's too late.

The Secret of the Keepers


The Kailmeyra Chronicles: Book Two--


Life for Nora couldn't be better; she has married the man of her dreams and loves living in the pristine land of Kailmeyra.



That is, until the darkness threatens her perfect world.



Now war is upon the land. She and Gavin must strengthen their clan and prepare to fight. But the enemy has an ally—one that not only wields power, but holds knowledge of the ancients' secrets. Secrets that could destroy creation itself.



As the darkness grows, doubt seeps in ... protectiveness hinders progress ... and the unthinkable comes to pass.



Bewildered and alone, Nora shoulders the responsibility of leading an entire race to war. As she struggles with decisions that seem impossible to make, she is haunted by one choice.



"No one has ever doubted that you would die for those you love. The question then becomes ... would you live?"

Today fellow Indie Elite author Susan Kaye Quinn launches Free Souls, the third and final installment of the Mindjack Trilogy. Congratulations, Susan! To celebrate, today's prize is an ebook of the first book, Open Minds. I've read the first two and truly enjoyed them, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I'm also giving some Soul Savers swag in today's giveaway.

Open Minds (Book One of the Mindjack Trilogy)

When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

Today I'm giving away a $5 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble PLUS an ebook of Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper (I absolutely loved this book, so I'm excited to be able to share it with you!).

Tangled Tides (The Sea Monster Memoirs)

Yara Jones doesn’t believe in sea monsters—until she becomes one.

When a hurricane hits her island home and she wakes up with fins, Yara finds herself tangled up in an underwater world of mysterious merfolk and secretive selkies. Both sides believe Yara can save them by fulfilling a broken promise and opening the sealed gateway to their realm, but they are battling over how it should be done. The selkies want to take her life. The merfolk want something far more precious.

Treygan, the stormy-eyed merman who turned Yara mer, will stop at nothing and sacrifice everything to protect his people—until he falls for Yara. The tides turn as Yara fights to save herself, hundreds of sea creatures, and the merman who has her heart. She could lose her soul in the process—or she might open the gateway to a love that’s deeper than the oceans.

Today I'm giving away a signed paperback of To Ride A PĂșca.

Invaders are coming to take what isn't theirs, again. 

Neala wants to stand and fight for her homeland, but as one of the last druids in ancient Ireland, she may be standing alone. 

Persecuted, hunted down, forced to live in obscurity, the druids have all but given up. Can the determination of a girl who has barely come into her power bring them together? Or, just when she finally finds her place among her kind, will they end up losing a homeland their very magic is tied to?

This unflinching tale of the end of the time of the druids is filled with hardship, discovery, and love found in the most unexpected of places.
