Help Me! I am buried under my TBR pile and I can’t get up! If my posts have been somewhat erratic lately it is not because I have abandoned my fellow bibliophiles for greener pastures, it is because I have been reading A LOT. I know, it doesn’t sound so bad and for all intents and purposes it’s not and when I manage to finish and review everything …okay not everything because that is like saying “when the house is done”, it will be awesome, I hope.
When I started the blog it was with the intention of promoting not only established authors but also to explore what was available from independent and as yet unpublished authors as well. The response has been spectacular, amazing even but overwhelming at the same time now I am scrambling to keep up. I would like to thank the authors who have so graciously shared their work with me, and for the blog followers here is a preview of reviews you can expect to see in the next few weeks or so.
The Waking Dark – They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, all in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand . . . except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn’t even know why she killed—or whether she’ll do it again.
SugarMan’s Daughter – is a 85,000 word work of literary fiction with a plot-line that explores the effects of betrayal and blind love. It celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit even as it explores the darker side of human nature.
The Altar (Timeless Generation #1) – Ava Cook is a vibrant senior in college, is about to be, thrust into two different worlds that she never knew existed; a world of sacrifice, blood lust, power, and immortality that she will likely never return from.
Sia – When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one.
Family Portrait – Lady Amelie Wainwoode’s secret identity is secure until the arrival of the scandalous Lord Stratfield. Determined to protect her good name and clandestine art career, she counters his blackmail. Now she must leave the sanctuary of her aunt’s home in London for his estate at White Ash to fulfill the bargain. Her presence unveils more than the hushed history which binds their families.
More – Ava Michaels used to think she was special. As a child, she fantasized about having magical powers . . . making things happen. She felt different from others her age, and just knew she was meant for something important. But, like most kids, Ava grew up and eventually accepted the fact that her childish dreams were just that, and maybe a normal life wasn’t so bad after all.
The Siren – Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.
