Emma Rue is a 19-year-old girl that is trying to live an ordinary life with an abnormal past. He has dealt with seeing what people are like on the inside regardless of how they present themselves. Little does she realize that she is a soul reader. Mr. Roberts brings the reader seamlessly back and forth from the present to the 18th century with a story of love, loss, heartache, and longing. He breathes new life into the age-old stories of vampires, werewolves, and ghosts. He blurs the line between love and obsession and leaves the reader wanting the evil to be a good as they once were yet also hoping for a new start or a new ending.
I’m left with the feeling of loss as I try to comprehend the love Julian and Cassandra (who is modern day Emma) shared. It seems so pure and right and I want it. But, I also want to see where this thing with Stefan will lead if he makes it past the trial he is facing. I am looking forward to this journey and the intrigue of the characters as they become real and living individuals in my mind.

When Destinies Collide

When Destinies Collide.ca

Shirl Rickman has a promising start with this debut novel. Selene and Drake are teenagers that come from different places but have both suffered loss and disappointments and have secrets that are threatening to destroy their very beings.

Selene is suffering from the loss of her mother, the only person that matters since she and her dad never seemed to bond. The story revolves around this loss and her growth as she begins to learn what it is like to live without her one constant in life. She is uprooted and taken to her great-aunt Violette in small town Texas. Her father just drops her off and runs away.

 

Drake is a boy that is dealing with his own demons. He has been dealt a blow of losing his twin sister less than a year ago. He is dealing with the emotional boomerang effect of abuse by someone that should love and protect him and his sister above all else. He has spent his whole life being the boy that draws attention in an attempt to remove that attention from his sister.

 

Drake and Selene are predestined to meet and help each other heal from their painful pasts and try to look forward. But, of course, destiny isn’t finished with them. They must continue through a year of twists and turns to get to their, hopefully, happy ending.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Jennifer L. Armentrout. She has been one of my favorite authors since the first time I read about Daemon and Katy. Their relationship struggles have made for many days and nights of entertainment.
In Oblivion, we get to see the whole series in Daemon’s POV. I was concerned that this installment would be a total retelling of the original books. I did notice this more in the first 12 or so chapters. After that, I noticed more added scenes that only Daemon would have been able to comment on as they weren’t actually of both Katy and Daemon.
I enjoyed falling in love with Dee and Dawson and am very interested in this new development with Luc and Evelyn Dasher.
I will have to say there were multiple inconsistencies and typographical/grammatical errors that were distracting but otherwise, it was a fun quick read.

I’m a mother (6 kids) and wife (18 years) before anything then I’m a Registered Nurse living in a small town in Upstate South Carolina. During my “free time,” I read… In the car waiting to pick up my kids, riding down the road as my 16-year-old drives.

The Price Is Right – right at $0.99

Very interesting article for all of the new “just getting started” authors.

Ana Spoke, author

This is a question that tortured me in the days prior to release of Shizzle, Inc – how to price it? I’ve read numerous blogs on the subject and shifted through the bestseller lists – prices were all over the place. Several blogs insisted that pricing your ebook too low would devalue it in the eyes of readers. Surely, that made sense, considering how expensive are all the famous authors’ Kindle editions – often just a few dollars cheaper than paper copies.

One blog in particular stuck with me, with the author insisting that pricing his (now bestselling) novel at $3.99 was the best idea he’d ever had. It stuck with me so much, that I’d released Shizzle, Inc at $3.99. I sold about a dozen copies, enough to get me on a Top 100 list in Humor. I was so ecstatic about it that I made it free for…
