Clock City by Rebekah Dodson Blitz and #Giveaway


Clock City
Rebekah Dodson
(Realm of Elestra, #2)
Publication date: May 15th 2019
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Steampunk, Young Adult
Since Mom died and left me with my abusive, drunkard of a father I don’t have much of a life. My only sanctuary’s hidden in the woods. At least until I find a jeweled dagger and it transports me to somewhere called Elestra. I seriously can’t believe this isn’t some crazy dream, with mechanical horses, cat people, demons, and even metal dragons.
I just want to go home, but everything is a disaster in Clock City.
Who’s this mysterious girl who appeared in Elestra? Alayna wears strange clothes and keeps complaining about something called a “cell phone.” She even has a demon with her who’s sworn a life debt, and now I’m bonded to her to help save the kingdom.
I’m just Sebastian, a secret tinkerer. How am I supposed to help her, and the rebellion, save the city? My life has flipped upside down, and I don’t know if I have what it takes.
No matter what happens it’s up to us to show the world what freedom truly looks like.
Q&A with Rebekah Dobson:
Name/Pen Name: Rebekah Dodson
Where do you get your ideas? Mostly from my muse, a close friend of mine, and watching people. And maybe a little from my students, lol
What is your writing process like? I get up at 4am most days and write 2500 words. My day starts at 6am, then I teach college classes from 9am-5pm five days a week. Some days it’s hard to get up at 4am, so I have to double up on weekends. Usually I get in about 10,000-15,000 words on a Saturday.
What is your writing Kryptonite? Quick burn romances. I can’t do it. My character talks and talk and fall in love SO slowly. It’s annoying sometimes.
How do you deal with writers block? I travel! Seriously. I take the train often, talk to people, go to big cities. I get tons of ideas!
Do you write under different pen names? Not yet!
When did you write and publish your first book? What was the name of your book? I wrote my frist book, Postcards from Paris, in December of 2013. I was in grad school at the time, and going through some rough things. I really poured my heart and some personal experiences into that book. A fellow students of mine started a publishing company and offered to publish it, and put a TON of faith into my work. Postcards was published on March 6, 2014! I’ve written a book a month ever since!
Who is your favorite author and Why? I love Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instrument series, but I’m also a huge fan of Stephen King, RA Salvatore, Terry Goodkind, David Gemmel, Nora Roberts, and Charlaine Harris. For India authors I adore Brooklyn Knight, Candace Osmond, and RA Steffan. Their books will ALWAYS be a one-click for me.
How many unpublished or half written books do you have? Probably at least 20. 30?
What kind of research do you do and how long before writing your book? I usually research as I write, to be honest. I rarely know what my characters are going to pull/do. The current series I’m working on it
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex? Not much, actually. My bestselling series, The Curse of Lanval, is from my male main character’s perspective, Guillaume Lanval. Most of my romances are from both male and female first person perspectives. I really enjoy writing from the male perspective, actually.
How long do you try to write daily? An hour or two. Some days I can only voice text a few sentences, but I get them in.
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with good and bad reviews? All the time. The harsest one was when a reader gave me 3-stars before she “couldn’t remember the book.” That made me cry. I never advertise that book anymore, but I read it every few months and determine to be more interesting than that book. For good reviews I sometimes share them with the world, but primarily I have the same reaction. Every time someone leave me a review, good or bad, I just enjoy the fact someone read it!
What’s your favorite genre to read? Urban fantasy and high fantasy mostly, but I also love historical romances.
Do you hide secrets that only a few people will find or easter eggs in your books? OH yes. Most of my characters are related, and their worlds are fundamentally changed by Gill’s time traveling. I’m just hoping someone figures it out someday.
What was your hardest scene to write? In Postcards from Moscow, my ballerina, Jacqueline, was a pill addict, and I had to write a scene where Vasily, the man who loves her, finds her not breathing on a bathroom floor. He revives her, but then he walks away. It was so hard to write that scene because I wanted them to be together SO bad, but it wasn’t going to happen, not until Jaqui got her stuff together. A close second is the moment that Guillaume loses someone he loves in the my time travel fantasy, Merlin. When I had to kill that character I felt his anguish and I cried all the way through it with him.
Do you write with music in the background or does it have to be silent? I need music!! If it’s a fight scene for a fantasy novel, I’ve got to have some wacky Voltaire or Mary Cromwell or Shyfer James in the the background, maybe a little Cog is Dead or Steampunk Giraffe. I also love my 90’s romance songs (Savage Garden, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears) for romances. Sometimes you’ll even heard a little Five Finger Death Punch in there!
Do you have a favorite thing to snack on while you write? Gummy bears. It’s really an addiction at this point…
How much do your readers’ interests influence your writing? SO much. I actually have some fans that suggest directions and I almost always use them. My biggest fan is actually my beta reader now and I love her!
If you could tell your younger writing self anything…What would it be? PLEASE write that damn book and publish it, even though you don’t think you are good enough! I published my first book when I was 30, and I wish I hadn’t waited.
Any advice to other writers? Always get your product as polished as possible. Hire an editor, pay a lot for a cover. Find your tribe of other authors to support you and ask them for advice, often! Don’t pay for anything until people agree that it’s a good venture, otherwise you’ll waste a lot of money and time on poor quality professionals. Also, find your readers, and reward the crap out of them. Don’t lose those precious readers at any cost.

Fire Wolf by H. Danielle Crabtree Blitz and #Giveaway


Fire Wolf
H. Danielle Crabtree
(Fire & Reign, #1)
Publication date: May 21st 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Since the fall of the royal house, the four kingdoms have been divided and at war, leaving many without necessities to survive. Lady Myah Leicht would do anything for her people, even risk herself—the future high lady of Nordlin—to join her friends to raid supply convoys and storehouses belonging to the enemy army against her uncle and his council’s wishes.
Garrett wants nothing more than to be done with the Osten Elite Guard, but his position as master keeps him close to the queen and close the secrets the resistance needs. But only one secret he keeps matters to the future of the four kingdoms.
And that secret could burn Myah’s world to the ground.
SNEAK PEEKS:
The wind picked up, howling through the unsheltered channel. It prickled every inch of Myah’s skin, blasting through her damp clothes. A chill raced up her spine when the gust died.
It was not the wind marking her end, but the cries of the wolves.
Myah would die to their song.
“I find you baffling.”
He laughed quietly. “I get that a lot.”
“If you don’t want to blackmail me, then what do you want?” she pushed.
He leaned forward as if to get a better look at her in the moonlight. “To test a theory.”
“And what is your conclusion?” She was curious now, much less afraid, although still untrusting.
“Undetermined …”
Garrett’s breaths were becoming ragged. His blood, warm and hot and sticky, dripped down his chest. He could feel the moisture on his skin. He blocked a swing aiming for his head, and then took a knife to his left side. It was shallow, but his muscles knotted. He stumbled backward, lost his footing as he slipped in the snow, and went down hard on his side.
When he looked up, the man’s arms were raised over his head, the blade angled to drive it through Garrett’s chest. His breath caught.

The Man of the Year by Caroline Louise Walker

Man of the Year
by Caroline Louise Walker

My rating: 4 stars

Publisher: Gallery Books (June 11, 2019)
Publication Date: June 11, 2019
Genre: Psychological Suspense
Print Length: 304 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Beware the Man of the Year. You may praise him, resent him, even want to be him: but beneath the elegant trappings that define him, danger looms. Caroline Louise Walker’s stunning debut novel, for fans of Herman Koch’s The Dinner and Shari Lapena’s The Couple Next Door, delves into the increasingly paranoid mind of a man whose life as the most upstanding of citizens hides a relentlessly dark heart.

Dr. Robert Hart, Sag Harbor’s just-named Man of the Year, is the envy of his friends and neighbors. His medical practice is thriving. He has a beautiful old house and a beautiful new wife and a beautiful boat docked in the village marina. Even his wayward son, Jonah, is back on track, doing well at school, finally worthy of his father’s attentions. So when Jonah’s troubled college roommate, Nick, needs a place to stay for the summer, Hart and his wife generously offer him their guest house. A win-win: Jonah will have someone to hang with, and his father can bask in the warm glow of his own generosity.

But when he begins to notice his new houseguest getting a little too close to his wife, the good doctor’s veneer begins to crack. All the little lies Robert tells—harmless falsehoods meant to protect everything he holds dear—begin to mount. Before long, he’s embroiled in a desperate downward spiral, destroying the lives that stand in his way. It’s only the women in his life—his devoted office manager, his friends, his wife—who can clearly see the truth.
The Man of the Year by Caroline Louise Walker 

Man of the YearOh, the webs we weave…Meet the Man of the Year, the man who has it all, prestige, respect, a trophy wife and a seemingly perfect life, but what happens when he begins to believe he is more than a mere man? What happens when his picture perfect concept of his world begins to unravel all around him, when all of the warts begin to grow, to show and his own ego works against him? Will he become like a paranoid Humpty Dumpty, shattering into a million pieces?

MAN OF THE YEAR by Caroline Louise Walker is the story of a man who believed he was above the rest, only to find he was wrong and his fall was ugly, very ugly and far too common for a man like him. Dr. Robert Hart, the man is not the Dr. Robert Hart, The Man of the Year. He is a hypocrite, an egomaniac, a man you love to hate on so many levels, a man with little love to give everyone left after giving it to the man in the mirror.

Caroline Louise Walker has created a magnetic read filled with characters that lack that necessary component that makes them truly likable, but they do feel real, and she has done an amazing feat in bringing their twisted story to life as we are witness to the implosion of a man, a family and the façade the world saw.

Gritty, dark and filled with lies, beware the truth when it is revealed.

Climbing the Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortune (Hart & Cole, #1)

Climbing The Walls
by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné

My rating: 4 stars

Series: Hart & Cole - Book 1
Publisher: Fortunink (July 28, 2018)
Publication Date: July 28, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Print Length: 557 pages
Available from: Amazon
Kris fell, head over heels over hormones, for the damaged b*tch who became his power-woman sex-goddess wife.

All Nicole wants is to be a better mother, and a wife more worthy of the husband she loves with every fibre of her body, but she is constantly yanked away by her job and her overbearing boss Darren Hart.

But Darren has marital problems of his own – and, when he confides in her, Nicole realises just how easily a happy marriage can crumble.

…Can she keep her own from doing the same?

Told from both points of view, “Climbing The Walls” explores the fibres that hold a marriage together – love, trust, forgiveness... and of course, the earth-shattering sex that will not be denied.
Climbing the Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortune (Hart & Cole, #1)

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Raw, heartbreaking and a far too realistic slice of life, of what goes on in a marriage built on shifting sands, CLIMBING THE WALLS by Sacha T.Y. Fortune is the tale of change, told from two main points of view, Kris, the involved father and husband, and Nicole, the workaholic wife who seems to have distanced herself from the day to day treasures of a young family.

Intense, this is a detailed story of the implosion of a relationship when only one works hard to keep things together while the other fails to put marriage and family first in favor of the gratification of work, appearances and outside success.

Enter their world, live it, day by day, see the mistakes made, all because these characters are truly human and flawed. This is not a quick read and although at times it seemed a bit long, it is one that pulls readers into every day and every minute of this couple’s lives. You will find that it isn’t necessary to always like the characters, particularly the narcissistic Nicole with her misplaced values as she uses sex to appease her long-suffering husband.

I both loved and hated this roller coaster read. There is so much grit, so many opportunities missed by both Kris and Nicole, I was a wreck at times. This tells me that Sacha T.Y. Fortune has a true gift as an author with the ability to blend heartache, rage, loss and passion into one amazing family saga.

by Gerardo Delgadillo

My rating: 5 stars

Publisher: The Parliament House; PublishDrive edition (July 9, 2019)
Publication Date: July 9, 2019
Genre: YA
Print Length: 308 pages
Available from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
After moving to Mexico with her parents, Winter Gutan had been hoping the local alternative medicine doctor would cure her mother’s illness. When her mother does not survive his controversial treatments, Winter’s life spirals in despair. Her father, a software engineer, insists his computer program, Fractalistic, will enable them to communicate with her mother’s spirit. But as his sanity begins to slip, Winter confides in her friend Rafa, a computer wizard, who tells her he’s found information about using fractal technology to treat false memories—nothing paranormal about it, leaving Winter confused and without hope. Will she lose her mother forever?

Suspecting her dad is hiding a deep secret, Winter runs Fractalistic behind his back, unveiling a sea of computer-generated imagery swirling on the screen. Her mother appears to her…begging for help! But is this all just Winter’s imagination?

Fractalistic may enable Winter to communicate with her deceased mother, but it might also unleash more mysterious memories buried within Winter’s mind. To figure it all out, Winter must hack into her father’s system to uncover a horrifying truth...or remain in the dark forever.
Fractalistic by Gerardo Delgadillo

FractalisticHer family had hoped for a miracle when they moved to Mexico, hoped that the alternative medicine offered there would save her mother’s life, but Winter and her father were left alone, heartbroken and engulfed in a sea of grief. Now the seventeen-year-old and her software engineer father would find themselves disconnected from each other, except for the hope that his program, FRACTALISTIC would allow them to communicate with her mother from “beyond.” Was this the ravings of a man losing his grip on reality or would Winter truly be able to “talk” with her mother again? Or could there be something more to this high tech wizardry that her father isn’t sharing?

How many times have you wished for one more chance to be with a loved one who has left this life? Winter has made friends and begun to piece her life back together, but her father seems obsessed with his program, with communicating with his wife. And he is determined that Winter will, too, but if it works, what will she discover? With the help of a computer savvy friend, she will learn there is truth to her father’s words, but not what she was expecting…

Gerardo Delgadillo has done more than create a tale of technology, he has created a tale of salvation, of finding truths suppressed within Winter and he has done so in a brilliant and entertaining way for readers of all ages. He has told a tale of friendships, grief and the healing of a family in crisis.

Let this tale reel you in page by page as the hidden becomes revealed and your heart strings are pulled. What starts as a teen attempting to rebuild her life in a foreign country turns into so much more and Gerardo Delgadillo’s powerful imagination turns those pages into a powerful tale of life and the things we do for love.

Brage & Dinah by Debra Kay Blitz and #Giveaway


Brage & Dinah
Debra Kayn
(Slag Motorcycle Club, #2)
Publication date: May 14th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
He’s a protective Norwegian biker.
She’s a gorgeous, gum-snapping, mysterious woman.
The lines blur in a perfectly captive love.

As Vice President of Slag Motorcycle Club, Brage Olden spends his time organizing, overseeing, and protecting three-hundred aggressive Norwegian bikers. With the club on high alert, he notices a new woman hanging around the clubhouse. Nothing grabs Brage’s attention more than a challenging woman with an attitude. She’s playing a dangerous game, and he’s looking to relieve some stress.
But, something feels off. His first clue hits hard when Moroad MC shows up on Slag property asking for Dinah and ends with exchanging gunfire.
Dinah Reed takes an opportunity to enjoy a one-night stand to relax from spying on Slag Motorcycle Club. As all hell breaks loose, Brage kidnaps her. Everything she knew about herself turns out to be a lie —her age, her family, even her name.
Submerged within Slag MC, she starts to see the club members for who they truly are and questions everything she believes of her past. As her life spirals out of control, she holds on to the one man who remains rock steady.
With the sole purpose of gaining the Fed’s attention for their illegal activities, Slag will become the biggest threat to every motorcycle club from Montana to California.
EXCERPT:
An arm wrapped around her waist from behind. A new panic washed over her, and she kicked out as her feet left the ground, struggling to get away. She wouldn’t let them kill her.
Her life wasn’t supposed to end this way.
She wanted to leave.
She wanted to go home.
“Calm, babe.” Brage captured her flailing arms with his free one. “Don’t hurt yourself.”
She threw back her head, connecting with Brage’s shoulder. “Let. Me. Go.”
Fighting his hold on her, she screamed, unable to break out of his grasp. Bigger and stronger, he was more determined to keep her.
Her feet left the ground. Afraid he was going to take her back inside the clubhouse and lock her inside again, she writhed in his arms.
Nothing she tried fazed him. He carried her away from the gate and put her feet on the ground and pressed her against the wall of the clubhouse.
She pushed at his chest, trying to shove him out of her way. He never budged.
“You used to like having me press you against the wall, the Jeep, the floor.” His arms kept her in front of him.
She stiffened, shaking with rage that he’d remind her of her mistakes. If she would’ve known he was going to kidnap her, she never would’ve had sex with him or went to the party or agreed to help Tony.
Tears rolled down her cheeks. She was in a hopeless situation.
“Listen to me.” Brage bent his head down to her ear. “I’m not putting you back in the room.”
“Let me go.” She grabbed the front of his vest as she held on to hope. “Please, Brage. I’ll do anything. I just need to get out of here.”
“Can’t do that.”
“I swear, you’ll never see me again. I’ll go far away. I can’t—”
“Do you belong to Moroad Motorcycle Club?” He straightened to his full height.
She tilted her head. “No.”
“Don’t lie to me.” He lowered his voice. “You were with a Moroad member.”
Her heart raced. He was too close. She couldn’t think.

Evie is pulled undercover to help fellow detective, Josh Westing, and she needs to balance her personal feelings for him, as well as remain professional while in the presence of the Mexican Cartel. Evie will find herself on a precipice to expanding her relationship with CSI Eric VanLacken and it will either grow to a new level or explode into bits and pieces.

While Kali is pushing forward and focused on the serial killings, she finds herself distracted by Detective Sergeant Greg Shavers more than she cares to admit. Special Agent Liam MacCabe continues to lurk on the edge, always there for Kali when she needs it most, especially after she crosses back from the dark side.

Evie and Kali will both spend their days in court, and while one case will get resolved, the other will take one of them to their knees in emotional destruction. Join Evie and Kali as they investigate new cases, dig deeper into current ones, and find their love life’s almost as explosive as dynamite.
