Description:

Honor hurts…all the time. The doctors say she’s fine – it’s all in her head. But Honor feels pain. What she doesn’t know is…it’s not her pain– it’s everyone else’s.

Seventeen year-old Honor Stevens is not an ordinary teenager. Sure, she looks like one on the outside…but on the inside, there’s a whole world of pain going on. Honor is an empath. That means she can feel other people’s pain – like that of the girl who is about to be raped in the woods, or the girl who is dying of cancer, or her mom…who is suffering a heart attack. What she doesn’t know is what Ethan Sutherland comes to town to tell her – she can save these people. But at what cost? For every life Honor saves, she knocks years off her own.

When Ethan comes looking for her, he isn’t counting on falling in love. Now that he has, he wishes he hadn’t told her about her abilities. Though he tries his best to talk her out of saving every soul, Ethan loses the battle – Honor’s too nice for her own good.

Then there’s the matter of Ethan’s estranged, morally corrupt half-brother, Storm – he loves Honor too. And because Honor is intrinsically empathic, she’s aware of Storm’s softer side and begins falling for him as well.

When the two brothers are forced to work together against a group of evil empaths who are after Honor, they need to put their differences aside and focus on saving the one girl they both love.

A Touch of Honor is a paranormal love story of a different kind. In a world gone mad with vampires and werewolves, A Touch of Honor tugs at the heartstrings with a girl out to heal the world…one person at a time.

Excerpt:

He takes hold of my hand, and we proceed to the wooden playground area off to the side of the library. A maze of playthings built from wood will serve as the background to, I suspect, a life-changing turn of events.

We ascend the wooden…plank, I think to myself, though it is really a wooden ramp. But “walkin’ the plank”seems so much more appropriate at this time. Since, unfortunately, I intuit a death sentence on the horizon.

“Honor,” Ethan starts, sitting down on one of the built-in benches. Of course, I follow. “I’ve been having this conversation with myself all afternoon,” he drops his head back against the seat’s wall and shuts his eyes. “Yet I still don’t know where to begin.” He opens his eyes and raises his head. Looking straight at me, right into my own violet eyes, he blurts out, “You’re adopted. You do know that, right?”

Now if I had not been aware of this fact already, I’d be quite traumatized right now. In fact, I’d have become just a bit unhinged at the moment. Come to think of it, I am anyway. “How do you know this?” I ask, astounded that he is aware of something so personal.

“Oh my God, Honor,” he puts his hand on my knee, “you didn’t know?” he asks, shocked.

Pulling my knee out from under his hand, I slide as far over as possible. But when I turn to face him, I swear…there’s a tear falling down his cheek. This tempers my anger…a little. “Yes,” I answer, hearing the sardonic tone in my voice. “I knew. I know…”

Ethan moves toward me.

“But…how do you know? We’ve kept this a secret. No one knows.” Tingly chills run up my spine. I am suddenly afraid.

“Your mother’s name was Hanna. Your father…Daniel. Your last name was Robinson.” Ethan ceases to talk, probably surmising, correctly, my need to absorb this new piece of intelligence about my own life.

Too dumb-stricken for words, I remain silently in awe.

“They gave you up for adoption…because they were dying,” Ethan resumes. “They were only in their early twenties.”

Hearing this makes me sadder than I’ve ever been. My body goes slack, and my eyes begin to burn. My mom, the one who raised me, had told me that my mother, the biological one, was dying when she gave me up. But I’d no idea she was so young. And no one had ever mentioned a father. There is a hollowness in my chest that I’d never known. A vacant home that had been hidden away, not knowing my true identity, now manifests into a cavernous canyon, because now I do know.

“You are from a special breed of people, Honor.” Unaware of the current turmoil taking place in my mind…and my heart, Ethan keeps on talking. “The violet eyes?” He pauses for a reaction from me, which he gets in the form of a blank stare. “They’re characteristic of your true nature.”

There is just no voice in me. All my thoughts are actually knotted into one mess of a ball in the pit of my stomach, where I can feel it trying to find its way up my esophagus. I want to vomit.

“Honor?” Ethan probes, as if I’m not listening. “All that pain you feel…day in and day out,” he pauses and is intent on looking me directly in the eyes, “and healing your mother. You know…you did do that. You know that, don’t you?”

I just shake my head slowly, hand over my mouth.

“Honor Nicole Robinson Stevens.”

My head moves back and forth quickly now, unable to grasp this. My hand is still covering my mouth.

Ethan will not stop.

“You feel people’s pain…Honor.” Ethan shakes his head now. “It is…a horrible existence, Honor, I’m not going to lie.” Tears roll down his face again. “But you are special.”

He smiles through his tears.

“You…” His head drops in a slight bow. “You can heal people…you are an empath, Honor. You take on the hurt and the pain of others…and you can take them away.”

J.P. Grider, born in Paterson, New Jersey as Julianne Pellegrino, was raised in Haledon, New Jersey, the oldest of six siblings. Her love of writing started early in her childhood, when she started writing poetry in-between homework assignments. As part of a school work program as a Journalism major in High School, J.P. Grider worked as a freelance reporter for a local newspaper, writing feature stories about exceptional high-school classmates. She studied Television Production and Film Writing at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.

After completing the whole manuscript, Grider decided to scrap the whole thing and rewrite Maybe This Life from scratch. In Grider’s opinion, the difference between the two were night and day.

PSYCHED– Juli Caldwell’s newest release

10 Jun
We start this week with my dear friend and awesome critique partner Juli Caldwell presenting us her latest release, PSYCHED. I absolutely love the cover.
Here is the deal: When Juli introduced our group to her story I literally was in awe struck by her abilities to be such an incredible narrator, mystery builder, character creator and tension designer. I warned her that if I start sleeping with the lights on because of her book she’ll be in doodoo. Well, once I finished the book, I turned them off, but I now leave the hallway nightlight on and HATE to go potty middle of the night afraid some damn demon lurks out there. I hope she’s proud of herself.
If I’d have to choose one word and one word only to describe this novel I’d say: gripping. But I wouldn’t do it justice because Juli wrote a novel that was much more than that: it was fascinating, thrilling, scary, intriguing, mysterious, detailed. For those of you loving suspense, paranormal, thriller mixed with a hint of romance this novel is definitely for you. For my full review click here.
And now, without further ado, I give you PSYCHED.

 
Cover Art by Morteque

You can find it on Amazon, and look for it soon in paperback!

So far, great reviews for Psyched!

This is one of those books you just can’t put down. What I
love about Psyched in addition to a great, spooky story is strong characters
and narrative voice. Aisi is the most awesome chick, strong-willed, sassy, and
deals with some crazy stuff happening with a spunkiness that I loved…
Psyched is well-written, riveting,
surprising and genre-busting. Teens will love this book, but it definitely has
a more wide-ranging appeal
.”
and…
Aisi Turay is one awesome girl. She
has power to see the dead…as in their souls…This is a great read, filled
with suspense. I NEVER knew from one chapter to the next what was happening. It
is well written and a very enjoyable…and a bit scary!

Psyched is part ghost story, part suspense, part demon-hunting thriller, part budding romance, the story of a girl named Aisi who’s doing her best to keep it together for her wreck of a family. She is smart, sassy, and sarcastic enough to keep things interesting. When she meets Vance on the single worst day of her life, she finds a guy who just might be the first person ever to get her, to believe in her, and to out-random her with bizarre observations at the worst possible moment. There’s just something about him that she knows she can trust.

Together, Aisi and Vance wander through the memories of others to unlock the secrets of her past while battling a demon who wants to ensure she never finds what she’s looking for. Aisi vanquishes demons all the time, but Malus Indolus is too strong. And he has plans for her…and her family.

Psyched is Juli’s second novel, the first as an indie writer,
and her first experiment with her true love as a reader: paranormal
fiction. Her debut novel Beyond Perfection is also available.

You can find Juli on her webpage, Twitter, Facebook,  and blog.

Author In the House–Sherry Gammon with her newest release UNBELIEVABLE. REVIEW

23 Apr

Today I welcome my dear friend and critique partner Sherry Gammon with her newest release Unbelievable. I had the pleasure and honor to read the novel as she wrote it and jumped at the occasion to write a review for it. There is also a giveaway associated with her book tour. For your chance to win click here.

 

Blurb:
Deliah Lopez Dreser’s in town to take care of family business. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but there’s more to Lilah than meets the eye. Cole’s in danger of losing his heart when this firestorm throws sparks his way. However, is she simply playing him for the fool in order to exact revenge for her brother’s murders?  
Maggie and Seth’s reaction when the truth is revealed pushes friendship to the limit. And this time around it won’t be a Dreser causing an uproar in Port Fare. It will be Cole’s good friend Booker. But does Booker have it all wrong? Usually not!
MY REVIEW:

Following the heroes from Unlovable, who become secondary characters in Unbelievable, this book celebrates a homecoming. As Cole (who in Unbelievable was a supporting actor) takes the stage, we see him grow from a clumsy doctor (yeah, believe it or not, doctors can be clumsy) into a young man with a heart willing to forgive, fight for the truth, and love despite so many obstacles.

Enter Lilah, a would-be villain turned heroin. She uses Cole as a ticket into his circle of friends. Her thirst for revenge turns against her when she least expects it. The more she plays Cole, the harder she falls for him. Beautiful arcs for both main characters lead to a well-deserved ending. Each chapter is written from either Cole or Lilah’s point of view, giving the reader a clear image of how their feelings evolve and change for one another.

Without giving too many details out, let me just say that the twists and subplots will have you jumping out of your seat (friendly warning: don’t get a manicure while you’re reading—you’ll end up biting your nails in a few very tense places).

Kudos to Sherry Gammon for giving Cole his own story. I look forward to Booker’s story, which is next… right, Sherry?

Author Bio

Unlovable was Sherry’s debut novel and quickly rose to many top seller lists on Amazon. She is pleased to announce that Unlovable is currently being made into a movie. She has added three more novels to her body of work. Souls in Peril, the poignant story of Max Sanchez who is on a journey to help the struggling JD Miller survive high school, and Pete & Tink, a fun, light-hearted novella of a manga-loving geek and and five-and-a-half inch fairy. And UNBELIEVABLE, Book 2 in the Port Fare Series.
Sherry and her husband, along with their children and a couple of crazy dogs, call Upstate New York home. It is where she spends her nights writing instead of sleeping {:

2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist
Post-apocalyptic science fiction with romantic elements

BLURB:

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.

Guest Post and Author In The House–Jon Thomason with Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud

21 Mar

max tour

Today I have author Jon Thomason stopping by with his newest release Max Zylander and the Island of Zumurrud. Aside from the book presentation, a short bio of Jon’s and a guest post regarding self-publishing there is a $50 gift card rafflecopter associated with his book tour. For your chance to win it please click here.

Blurb:
Max has anger management issues. But she has a secret, too. She can make things happen. Like magic. She almost killed a loser skate punk and nearly used it on her stuck up older sister. The question is, can she do anything other than blow things up? Can she learn to control it? And is it really possible that an obscure teenage girl is the key to keeping all of humanity safe?
Philip just got his ring back. He got it taken away for messing with his teacher’s mind so he can cheat on a test. Now that he has his ring, he thinks he should be able to use his power to make his life better. A lot better. The problem is that people want him to be responsible. But if you could do magic, wouldn’t you use it to escape work in any way possible?
Aaron wants to be a soldier. He knows there are lots of people who would try to take over, and he’s determined to stop them. The problem is that there’s this new girl. And she might be not be on the right side of things. She’s really talented and pretty, but she might be able to destroy everything he believes in. Whatever the case, he knows he needs to learn to be world class with the magic sword while he figures out what to do.
Brynn never gets out. Her grandfather won’t permit it. Her only access to the outside world are high fashion magazines, so she has an unusual idea what she should wear. She’s dying to get out and travel. And adopt animals. Any kind of animal. Is she a lonely future granny with cats or are her ridiculous clothes actually the next fashion craze? What possible role could she play in the destiny of the world?
Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud is a fast-paced fantasy adventure for all ages (10 and up)  and is the first of a planned trilogy. Fans of magic, swordplay, secret agents, and conspiracies set in a modern everyday world will not be able to put the book down. Jon Thomason is a debut author and paints a vivid world of magic right under our noses and delivers rapid-fire action that keeps the pages turning.

Author Jon Thomason

Jon Thomason lives with his family in San Diego, after many years living in the beautiful Seattle area. He has a successful career in high tech where he’s been fortunate enough to participate in many big-name industry releases.

Storytelling permeates everything he does. In the moments when Jon is not helping build the story of the tech world, he can almost always be found working on a project: writing, photography, videography, graphics design, or 3D art.

And he’s always careful to conceal his jinni magic abilities, though perhaps might slip one day and be discovered…

And now to the guest post regarding the self-publishing process.

Jon, the stage is your!

Hello Readers, my name is Jon Thomason and I’m the author of Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud.

Once upon a time (not that long ago!), a budding novelist toiled away on a manuscript, and when it was finished, sent query letters in the postal mail to agents and publishers, dreaming of someone not saying no and who wanted to read your manuscript. Once in awhile, often after much perseverance, it worked. An agent took you own or a publisher decided they had to have it. A deal was signed, and after a year or sometimes two or three, the book would show up on store shelves, and hopefully sold.
 
Self-publishing and particularly electronic books turned this process for many people on its head. The writer still toils over the manuscript, but instead of sending off query letters and the manuscript, the writer decides to publish it themselves. Nirvana, right? As you’ve already deduced, not exactly. Sure, there are some advantages: no one will tell you that you can’t publish it, but if you think that the second you push the publish button on Amazon.com that suddenly the world will flock to your book, you might be in for a rude awakening from that pleasant fantasy.
 
Let’s back up a few steps, though. Unlike working with a publisher, when you self-publish, you are responsible for several things: a camera-ready book, cover art, and your own marketing.
 
Producing a camera-ready book is more difficult than you might think. First, editing and proofreading are virtually impossible to do by yourself. Trust me, you really need someone else to criticize your book. It will hurt your feelings and you may even hate your editor (briefly, hopefully), but it will improve your book. And I guarantee that you cannot proofread your own book. You will not find all the typos in your own work. Depending on your available resources, you should consider hiring an editor and a proofreader. Remember: there’s no publisher and editor backstopping you. What you push publish on will go up, spelling errors, bad grammar, and all!
 
Designing covers can be very difficult. Some people have the graphics arts experience to do their own covers. If you do, kudos, and get to work! But even for them, it’s a time consuming piece of artwork. It does matter what your cover looks like. Again, you may need to pay for an artist to do a cover for you. Do your homework and know what aspect ratio (mine is 6″x9″) your cover is. You’re best off if you have a concept to pitch to the artist. But even if you don’t, you can hire someone to help come up with concepts. Remember that people do judge books by their covers, no matter what the aphorism says.
 
Finally, marketing. You’ve come up with the ultimate concept, have edited and proofread and have the perfectly crafted novel. You even have the best cover known to man. You upload your book, Amazon says, “congratulations!” And then you let it go a day or a week, and you’re surprised that there are no sales. Or maybe your Aunt Mabel took pity on you and you have one sale. I believe that a self-published author has to spend even more time promoting than they do writing. There are a dozens of things you can do, but mostly be creative, and try things nearly every day to get the word out there.
 
Selling on Amazon itself is a bit of a catch-22. You won’t sell until you have lots of sales. User reviews are key. Give away books to everyone you know and beg them to write a review. Do a giveaway on Goodreads.com. Approach every blogger who will answer you. Do ads on facebook and promoted posts. Do giveaways, give prizes for hitting milestones like numbers of reviews posted or referrals. Give the book to local book clubs. Talk to librarians. In short, do anything you can think of to get your book out there! Your free giveaway days on Amazon.com are valuable tools to getting your book out there.
 
And don’t forget to keep writing. The only way to make money self-publishing is to have an entire catalog of books. When someone reads one of your books, if they like it, they might read all of yours. With this model, whatever marketing you did to get them to read one book essentially sells all your books at once!
 
Unfortunately, all this marketing costs money. This is the price of entry to self-publishing. Note that it’s self-publishing, meaning that you need to do the same things the publisher would do for you. You need to sell, sell, sell, and write, write, write!
 
Thanks for listening, and I wish you all the best in your writing and reading, and I’d like to introduce my novel, Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud to you.

Gem Stone (A Gemma Stone Mystery, Book 1)

by Dale Mayer

Published by Valley Publishing (Indie)

Length: 200 pages (eBook format)

Contemporary YA

Contains elements of action, adventure and mystery/thriller

 

Available at:

Amazon  

Blurb:

A juvie kid trying to stay on the right path stumbles into trouble…

Gemma takes her camera everywhere. From juvie hall to a halfway home, the new hobby gives her a focus she’d never had before and… hope in a future. Until she takes pictures of something that could get her killed.

And not just her…after she and another juvie girl are chased by a stranger to the halfway home that same night, the other girl goes missing and Gemma knows she needs help. But who can she trust?

Not the authorities that’s for sure. Trusting them is impossible for a girl with her damaged history, and besides, who cares about a troubled kid…especially when trouble just naturally seems to find her. 

Excerpt #1:

Damn Misty. Forcibly keeping her expression neutral, she struggled to match it to her voice. “I’m sorry to hear that, sir.” 

“I’m going to ask you once and once only. Did you cheat?” 

“No, sir.” She didn’t need to cheat on exams. School was easy for her. 

“Did you help anyone else cheat on their exams?”

At least she could answer honestly again. She looked him straight in the eye. “No, sir.”

Silence.

“That’s not what I’m hearing from other sources.” He studied her intently as if hoping to read a different truth on her face. “I wouldn’t want you involved in anything that would make me reconsider your placement here.”

Shit. Misty was a bitch. The girl would do anything to avoid getting into trouble herself. Including throwing Gem into the mess to confuse the issue. Again.

“People will always talk, sir.”

“Yes. They will, won’t they? Well, we will leave it for the moment. As long as you realize, that if I receive one ounce of proof that you cheated, your permission to stay here will be rescinded. Got that?”

“Yes, sir.” She dropped her gaze to her feet and the almost-too-short jeans. There were a lot of good things happening here. She didn’t want to leave. She also didn’t dare let him know how much this mattered.

 Silence again.

Gemma risked a quick look at him. He was staring at a thick file open in front of him. Her file. Gemma groaned silently.

“I see you’re still busy with that camera of yours…”

Was that a question? Gemma didn’t know what she was supposed to say. “Yes, sir.”

“You know better than to take pictures of people and situations that you aren’t supposed to, right?” His pale gray eyes lifted from the desk, flicked to the field outside the window then back, catching hers.

Acid bubbled in her stomach. Did he know?

“We wouldn’t want you ignoring other people’s privacy now, would we? Even if the pictures don’t turn out well, people might think you captured events you weren’t entitled to see. Understand?”

A frisson of fear slid down her back. He couldn’t know, could he? She didn’t even know what she’d seen. She gulped and nodded once. “I’m very careful.”

“Yes. Careful. That describes you very well. Careful in what you say. Careful in what you do. Careful in how you act. Always. What goes on behind those big brown eyes of yours, Gemma? You’re always quiet. Deep. You’ve been here with the others for several months now and yet, you’re still essentially a loner.”

And what was she supposed to say to that? She remained silent.

“A word of warning, there will be several new girls arriving over the next few weeks, so expect to go back to sharing your room again.” He studied her carefully for a reaction. “And still you stand there and say nothing.” He closed the file before resting his interlocked fingers on top. He stared up at her, a frown creasing his forehead. “I’m not a big fan of mixing boys and girls at your age. Unleashed hormones and troubled kids make for a nasty mess.” He narrowed his gaze and added, “Make sure you don’t contribute to the problem.”

“No, sir. Are we done here, sir?” Gem stared down at her standard-issue running shoe. Like all her clothes. The home provided everything, slightly less institutionalized than at the center, but still generic. Soon she’d be allowed to get a job, then she could buy her own clothes.

He studied her bent head.

“Never an ounce of give in you, is there?”

“Sir?” She eyed him curiously.

“Never mind.” He picked up her file and added it to the stack on the right. “Yes, we’re done.”

She took that as a dismissal. “Thank you, sir.” Just before escaping down the hallway, she popped her head back in and said, “I don’t cheat.”

He looked up in surprise. “I know that. You don’t bother reading the textbooks either, do you? But not everyone here has your IQ. Make sure you aren’t helping the others cheat. It won’t do either of you any good in the long run.”

She nodded. She had no intention of helping anyone cheat, but that didn’t stop them from cheating off her. Though it would have been easy to point the finger in the right direction, she wasn’t Misty. She wasn’t going to turn anyone in to make it easier for herself.

Life here hadn’t changed the first rule, learned the hard way on the streets and reinforced in juvie. That rule was to keep your mouth shut – no matter what. Or else.

She bit her bottom lip as she raced down the hallway. She didn’t want to miss dinner. She’d already outstripped most other girls her age, for height. She could only hope one day, she’d match them for curves. At least she had them all beat for brains.

It was a relief to get out of there, but she’d feel better if she understood what was going on by the creek. And why Creepers cared.
