My promise for the year 2017

I’ve learned from my previous promises not to promise too much, so this year I’m gonna promise only one thing. Concentrate on the things that matter and not to stress over things I can do nothing about. What’s your promise?

Welcome Christmas!

16115581_mFor me Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. I would probably start it in June if possible 🙂 This year I’ve found myself baking again, making Christmas cards, taking time to create something special for the ones I love and of course for my readers…and yes, it has taken some time away from my writing but it has so been worth it. I find myself smiling for the small things, laughing without a reason and the feeling inside of me reminds me of the one I had when I was a child. Pure happiness.

In my newsletter I asked from my readers what they think is the best thing about Christmas. Here are some of the answers:

“The best thing about Christmas is surprising someone with a present they didn’t expect.”

“I love Christmas! The first snow fall, the music and fun loving movies. Spending time with my family. We dont do the normal christmas’ most do. We dont do presents. We do however cook dinner together, while listening to christmas music and singing, very badly, off key. lol We buy a ton of snacks, pick out a movie theme (last year was superheros!) and spend the entire day together. We play games and just have fun. I love it! Christmas for us is very special, filled with lots of love and laughter. I adore it!”

“The one part of Christmas that I love is sitting back and just watching my three children with my daughters children passing out gifts, opening gifts, and seeing that magic! The magic Christmas brings. It’s my favorite part of the holiday.”

“The best thing about Christmas is watching my niece and nephews get excited about the holidays!☘️ we drive around and look at Christmas lights on all the houses and listen to Christmas music. Watching them open their gifts… it’s the kids that make the holidays!”

“The best thing about Christmas is love. If you are religious, love is the reason that God sent his son. But for everyone, love is what we should all be feeling and extending to others at Christmas. It is all about loving our family and friends and the world around us.”

“I love seeing my kids excitement about all things Christmas….decorating the house, putting up the tree, looking for the elf….it’s a fun time for all.”

“For me, the best thing about Christmas is my son. He’s 8 now and still has that innocent joy and belief in Christmas. He has always been amazing to watch on Christmas day. He is so excited about everything, from getting up and seeing the presents under the tree, to cinnamon rolls for breakfast, to getting to open gifts. He gets so into each gift he opens, whether it’s just a little thing from his stocking to the every larger present under the tree, that he stops, checks it out and has to try it or play with it before he opens the next thing. Many time we have to remind him that he has other gifts to open!”

3793d9ae-07c2-4ee7-b7e4-c970555462adI got hundreds of replies, hundreds of great stories, some short, some long, about Christmas. And each and every one of them were fabulous. If you participated in my Christmas Game, Math Goodies will draw a bunch of names who will get gift cards and some on Friday. If you didn’t, no worries, you can participate next time. But only if you are on my newsletter list! You can subscribe here!

Cheers,

old-blood-final-coverOLD BLOOD, the second book in the Blood Hunters series is out!

Vampires and witches … not a match made in heaven, but desperate times require desperate actions…

The world of Samantha Green has been turned upside down. Not sure who to trust or what is real and what not, she has to face her worst enemy. A master vampire who seems to have finally found a perfect tool for his diabolical revenge against Sam. However, Sam will not go down easily. Quite the opposite. Even when the master vampire is toying with her, spinning a twisted web, with Ben included in it, she will fight tooth and nail to retain at least the remnants of her sanity, making sure that if she goes down, she goes down kicking and screaming.

Whilst this psychopath is playing puppet master with Sam, Dane, Alex, and Kieran are devastated. Not knowing if Sam is alive or dead, they have to seek help from Kieran’s past. A past he has denied and whose help comes at a price they might not be able to pay.

Can they find Sam in time, or will the master vampire win this deadly lottery where both Sam’s life and soul is in danger? And if they find her, will their lives ever be the same?

You won’t want to miss this fifth installment of Sam’s thrilling adventure!

About ‘Black Diamond’:

Part One of McLean Twins Series

After her mom’s sudden death, twelve-year-old Shannon McLean has to move from the US to the English countryside to live with her mysterious father, Connor McLean, whom she hasn’t seen since she was a baby. Soon she discovers that he doesn’t want her around and her moving into his huge manor, Greyman Hill, is nothing more to him than a compulsory deal. But if he does not exactly give her a warm welcome, his servant Robert is most likely an incarnation of evil. He runs the house with an iron touch and makes everyone who works there his little puppets.

Weird things start to happen and the whole place scares the crap out of Shannon. Her dad can control her just by looking at her. The walls are full of secret passages and apparently she has the talent to awaken the ghosts in them. Every day is worse than the day before and she wants badly to run away but discovers it’s impossible. If she wants to stay alive she has to do exactly as her dad says or else she will not only jeopardize her own life but also the lives of the people around her.

While Shannon struggles to find the magic inside her, Connor is slowly turning into a demon. One carelessly spoken word from her could either save or destroy them both. In the end she has to decide whether to save herself and her loved ones, or lose her dad to the darkness and evil that threaten to eat his soul.

greta-burroughsGreta Burroughs loves to read. No matter where she is, there is always a book close at hand. Her love of reading began at an early age and blossomed over time to include many different genres, her favorite now being fantasy.

As a preschool and elementary school teacher, Greta tried to instill the joy of reading in the children she worked with. Books were an important part of her classroom and story time was the highlight of the day.

It has been a while since Greta was in a classroom but she had lots of experience in reading to children of various ages and remembers what they enjoyed listening to. She tries to incorporate that knowledge into her work as an author and believes it makes her a better writer of children’s and young adult books.

She now resides in SC with her husband, Robert and three dogs. Greta has six books published at the present time; three children’s books in the Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat series, two MG/YA fantasy entitled “Gerald and the Wee People” and “House on Bo-Kay Lane”, and a nonfiction account of her experiences with an autoimmune blood disorder called ITP – “Heartaches and Miracles”.

For more information on Greta’s books visit http://booksbygretaburroughs.weebly.com/

About ‘House on Bo-Kay Lane’:

“House on Bo-Kay Lane” continues the adventure begun in book one in this series, “Gerald and the Wee People”.

Gerald and Vernon believe their time with the wee people came to an end after they returned to their home world but begin to wonder when strange things started to happen at an abandoned house in their neighborhood. Ghostly images of familiar faces from the wee people village are seen in the windows, echoes of voices from the past haunt the boys’ dreams and an undeniable curiosity draws Gerald and Vernon to investigate the mysterious haunted house. What they find takes them back to the world of the wee people and a new adventure begins.

In House on Bo-Kay Lane, a mirror is found in a forgotten room in the far-seers’ training center. Sheela, a far-seer master and Alyson, an apprentice firestarter are unwillingly drawn into the depths of the mirror and wind up in the abandoned house on Bo-Kay Lane. Sheela uses her telepathic skills to enlist the aid of Gerald, Vernon and Gerald’s father, Andrew to help find the way back to the world of the wee people.
That problem resolved, they try to unravel the secrets of the mirror and find that it is a portal between their two worlds, as well as to a time in the future and possibly even to a parallel universe. They also discover that someone is trapped inside the mirror and the decision has to be made as to whether or not to help the trapped soul escape the confines of the portal.

Meanwhile, the wee people discover the origins of their world. That knowledge is not well accepted and leads to discord between them and the outworlders, Gerald, Andrew and Vernon. An uneasy truce paves the way to an understanding and acceptance of the unwelcome facts and eventually to a solution of how to deal with the man in the mirror.

9i9lhbv5Joey Paul is an indie author, exploring the young adult crime genre. She has released eight books in total so far, with a ninth due out in the summer of 2016. Her current works include the “Dying Thoughts” series, and she is planning to start writing the last book. She usually writes crime and mystery fiction, with a paranormal twist, but she has been known to dabble in contemporary romance and general fiction. She is writing her fifteenth and sixteenth books at the moment, having recently finished her last two.

Joey is disabled and a recent graduate from The Open University with a BA (Hons) in Health & Social Care. When not reading medical textbooks, she enjoys reading crime novels, medical dramas and young adult novels. When she’s out and about, she likes looking for Tupperware in the woods with GPS satellites, otherwise known as geocaching. And when she’s not doing THAT, she’s sleeping! She’s 34 and has been writing since she was retired from her job on medical grounds at the age of 19. She plans to write for as long as she has ideas or until someone tells her to stop!

About ‘Waiting on You’:

Angelina and Zack couldn’t be anymore different; one lives in apparent riches and the other in poverty.

They meet online and a friendship blooms, but then things in Angelina’s life take a turn for the worst and she finds herself turning to the only person she thinks loves her – Zack.

With everything against them, can Zack and Angelina cross the distance to change her life before it’s too late? Or will Zack have to watch from afar as Angelina continues to suffer?

Cheers,

Jen x

Revenge.
It can either destroy you or save you.

He was a ruthless killer who’d killed so many people he had forgotten their faces. She was still a newbie and knew squat about killing, but she was prepared to protect the ones she loved no matter what the cost. When his hands encircled her neck and his fangs pierced her soft flesh, he almost forgot his task. She didn’t. She knew what she had to do to stop him. Even if she had to pay for it with her life.

Demons and witches…a perfect cocktail for your weekend!

I believe in magic. If you open your eyes there’s magic everywhere…so how can I not believe? A child is being born, two strangers fall in love at first sight…a nightmare is a tad more than just a bad dream but one can banish the demons with a prayer…so yes, for me magic is quite real. Since I don’t want you to feel an outsider, I give you Teresa Roman, an author of Daughter of Magic. And maybe you can have some magic in your weekend too 🙂  Enjoy!

teresa roman photoIf it was possible to be born with a book in her hands, that’s how Teresa Roman would’ve entered this world. Her passion for reading is what inspired her to become a writer. She loves the way stories can take you to another time and place.

Teresa currently lives in beautiful Sacramento, CA with her husband, three adorable children and a dog named Parker that her son convinced them to adopt. When she’s not at her day job or running around with her kids, you can find her in front of the computer writing, or with her head buried in another book. If you’d like to find out more about her, she can be found at http://www.teresaromanwrites.com where you can also sign up for her newsletter to receive exclusive book release information.

Daughter-of-Magic-Ebook-SmallBlurb of Daughter of Magic

Lilli sees things no one else does.

Desperate to make sense of the dreams and visions that have plagued her since childhood, Lilli confides in Devin, her closest friend, and the boy she’s fallen for.

Instead of questioning her sanity, Devin confesses to secrets of his own, which are far darker. His revelations about magic, witches and demons stun Lilli. But it’s what he knows about Lilli’s mother, long believed to be dead, that leaves her feeling betrayed. Despite her anger, Lilli will have to learn to trust Devin again, because he is the only one who can protect her from a dark danger that’s coming for her from a world away.
