Apologies for my Month-Long Hiatus


Hey everyone! I just wanted to apologize for my absences this last year. When I joined this community and still to this day, I still consider the people that I have met on here some of the best of friends and people that I have ever met and I know I have been lacking on my part on showing everyone love on their blogs and keeping updated. It was a helluva a year and was working hard to repair it and heal but back to this month. Sorry for being gone! We lost power and internet due to Hurricane Dorian and when we went to fix a tree downed on our porch it damaged the power lines so haven’t been able to be on the net. I have also been healing from a flare up of my fibro & autoimmune disorder and other illness but thankfully my family is safe and has been making it by sense all the repairs, outages, and such! Woot! My thoughts and prayers still go out to all those affected by the hurricanes this year. I know the Bahamas took a really bad hit.😢

Anywho, I am so thankful to be a part of this community and I apologize for any inconviences that I have caused. I plan on starting back up blog hopping, doing book reviews, and sharing my very own Dani cheer regularly again!❤❤❤ Much love to all of you guys and I can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s blogs.❤😚 Yay!

Why She Lied

Publication Date: March 3rd, 2019

Genre: True Crime/ Memoir

Will she have to lose her child to save her child?

The day she tells her boyfriend she’s pregnant, is the same day he tells her he’s been accused of molestation. His trial is set to begin the following day.

She needs answers…

To get them, she tricks her boyfriend into signing a release form, giving her full access to all of his legal documents. She uncovers the truth, he’s guilty.

To save her unborn child from this monster, she gets an abortion.

FIVE YEARS LATER and still rebuilding her life, Julie finds out her ex-boyfriend has just become the most wanted man in America, involved in human trafficking. When detectives ask for her help locating him, she gets drawn into a baffling mystery. What began as a seemingly simple search soon turns into a much darker reality.

Someone from her past is watching…

Bit by bit, the tapestry of her own secret childhood begins to unravel. What she learns about her past will haunt her forever: family isn’t always what it seems.

Can she help bring this predator to justice, or will she die trying?

Excerpt

I wanted to throw up. It was so disturbing to hear her talk about a grown man trying to have sexual relations with a child. I expressed my deepest condolences to her.

Then she asked me the million-dollar question: “Are you still with James?”

“No way, of course not, but I have a problem. I found out the day before he told me about his court date that I was pregnant with his child.”

I could actually hear her gasp on the other end of the phone.

Without taking another breath she said, “You have to get rid of that baby.”

The Devil’s Apprentice(The Great Devil War #1)


The Devil’s Apprentice (The Great Devil War #1)

Publication Date: October 5th, 2018

Genre: YA Fantasy

So sorry to the author & R;R for missing this tour on the right time due to being sick. I thank you for this opportunity!

Philip is a good boy, a really good boy, who accidentally gets sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. The Devil, Lucifer, is dying and desperately in need of a successor, but there’s been a mistake and Philip is the wrong boy. Philip is terrible at being bad, but Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training him in the ways of evil. Philip gets both friends and enemies in this odd, gloomy underworld—but who can he trust, when he discovers an evil-minded plot against the dark throne?

Even though the story (mostly) takes place in Hell and deals with themes like evil, death and free will, it is also a humoristic tale about good and evil seen from a different perspective. A tale that hopefully will make the reader – young or old, boy or girl – laugh and think. – Kenneth B. Andersen

Goodreads

Wow, this book was quite entertaining! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first read the synopsis but I can say it went over and beyond my expectations. I loved how so much different aspects were mixed with the concept of good and evil. The characters were amazing and once you started reading you don’t want to stop! I am looking forward to reading the next novel! Woot!

About Kenneth Bøgh Andersen

I was born in Denmark on a dark and stormy night in November 1976. I began writing when I was a teenager. My first book was a really awful horror novel titled Nidhug’s Slaves. It didn’t get published. Luckily. 

During the next 7 years, I wrote nearly 20 novels–all of which were rejected–while working as a school teacher. The rest of the time I spent writing.

In 2000 I published my debut fantasy book, The Battle of Caïssa, and that’s when things really took off. Since then I’ve published more than thirty-five books for children and young adults in genres ranging from fantasy to horror and science fiction. 

My books have been translated into more than 15 languages and my series about the superhero Antboy has been adapted for film, which is available on Netflix. An animated tv series is currently in development.

A musical of The Devil’s Apprentice opened in the fall 2018 and the movie rights for the series have also been optioned.

I live in Copenhagen with my wife, two boys, a dog named Milo and spiders in the basement.

Wild, Dark Times

Expected Publication Date:July 23rd, 2019

Genre: Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal

It’s the summer of 2012 and Elizabeth Megalos is a disillusioned art-school grad getting by as a bank teller in St. Louis. One evening, she’s attacked by a possessed coworker and saved by a mysterious, wise-cracking sorcerer named Eddy. He drags Elizabeth and Hugh—a skeptical scholar of the occult—to Europe, where he introduces them to his three magical celebrity friends. Once there, Eddy explains the group’s mission: preventing a Demiurge—a creature out of Gnostic Christian mythology—from fulfilling the visions of doom in the Book of Revelation. The Demiurge has been drawing power from the misguided beliefs in the Mayan apocalypse and is set to start the destruction on Dec. 21st, 2012. Through ritual magic and a series of psychedelic experiences, the group learns that Elizabeth is the key to taking down the Demiurge, though she can’t imagine how she will be the one to stop Armageddon.

Excerpt

“OK. Seriously. Please. Tell me exactly who you are, what you’re doing, how you made my phone fly into your hand, and why the fuck my co-worker just assaulted me,” said Elizabeth, the last of her patience dwindling.

“You can call me Eddy,” he said. “The milk is for the protection spirit I called to keep us safe for now. As for your coworker… well, she’s possessed by a qlippoth, which is pretty much a vampiric assemblage of cravings, guilt, self-loathing, and a whole other mess of nasty emotional energies. Most are made when the sad and pathetic losers of the world jerk off to some of the sickest porn the bowels of the Internet can shit out. Obviously, there’s a fair number of these icky beasties around. This particular one’s been coalescing around your back alley. Probably feeding off of your used tampons or something. They like those. Used condoms and jerk-off rags too. Genital fluids are like bonbons for these things. And sometimes they’re able to possess people with very little emotional control and/or intelligence during certain astronomical phases. My guess is your coworker wasn’t exactly a shining example of emotional stability. As for the phone: involving the cops would just complicate things, so I used a little arcane prestidigitation to take it from you for the moment.”

“What the fuck are you talking about?” asked Elizabeth.

“OK, we need to skip past the whole ‘Spirits? Magic? Are you crazy?’ shit because we’ve got a hungry, demon-possessed hippie trying to break in and drink our nether juices, and I for one don’t want that chick anywhere near my junk.”

Good Writing is like Good Sex by C.S. Johnson Tour Spotlight


GoodWriting

Welcome to the blog tour for Good Writing is Like Good Sex: Sort of Sexy Thoughts on Writing. This cheeky and handy writing guide is by C.S. Johnson, and if you read through to the end, you can try to win a copy of your very own!

Good Writing

Good Writing is Like Good Sex: Sort of Sexy Thoughts on Writing

Publication Date: March 31st, 2019

Genre: Non-Fiction/ Writing Guide

What makes a book sexy?

I’m not talking about erotica, per say, but what is the difference between a book you eagerly devour and a book you slum your way through?

While there are individual exceptions, the most objective difference between a good story and a downright terrible one is simple—it all comes down to the writing.

It’s either good writing, and we can forgive the technical flaws a little more easily, or it’s bad writing, and bad writing is just bad.

Good writing is more than just good writing.

Good writing is sexy.

If you’re a fiction writer looking to improve your writing skills, this is the perfect, provocative read to encourage you to get down to business and write your story.

Inside Good Writing is Like Good Sex, you will find:

• A titillating perspective on the writing process

• The secret to why your story is special, and how you can make it sexier

• Tips on romancing your readers

• How to write irresistible characters

• Basic writing and story concepts with advanced insights

… and all in a non-gratuitous fashion with a lot of innuendos.

Excerpt#3:

*CHAPTER 7*

Don’t Pick Your Nose While Making Out

It’s All About Style, Baby

Imagine you are out on a date with your dream date. The moment is just right, the night is brisk and wild, but still comforting, there’s music playing in your heart or running through your head, and in a moment of pure magic, you look at your date and you know.

You just know, and together as one, you both lean in for a kiss.

And then you see the huge, spit-covered cut of broccoli, tucked into their gums just between the two front teeth. It leers at you while the soundtrack to Psycho screeches out between your bodies.

Do you still want to kiss your date? Even if you do, are you going to be able to enjoy it when the last thing you see is a piece of food stuck between their teeth? What if you end up French kissing?

Like picking your nose while you’re making out, like sneezing as you go in for a hug, and just like falling off the bed at the wrong time, it is possible to make your reader confused, repulsed, or just ruin the mood. You stop what you’re doing, you stop what you’re feeling, and that’s it. Maybe you don’t stop all the way, you’re just sidetracked. Or you’re confused. And then maybe you’re hungry or tired or you realize you need a shower—or maybe you need to brush your teeth.

If you want your writing to be as sexy as possible, you will need to make sure that your story flows easily from one scene to the next, from one decision to another complication, to a desperate choice, to a mistake, and so on until the conclusion of the book. The books that are unable to be put down are the ones where you can read and read and there is nothing interrupting you, and everything that is keeping you absorbed in the flow of the story.

Sometimes the skeletons in the closet are real.

Greenville, South Carolina, 1972.

Penelope Drake knows the ghosts and demons lurking in her hometown aren’t just figurative. After all, her father’s spirit haunts the office of the detective agency she inherited from him.

When Ephraim Brown, an old friend of her father, asks Penelope to investigate a break-in at his home, she’s hesitant. Breaking and entering is normally something she’d leave for the police, but with no other prospects in sight, she reluctantly agrees. The simple burglary, however, turns out to be just the beginning, as the brutal supernatural attack that follows makes it clear someone is using dark magic to try to destroy Ephraim Brown and his family.

It’s up to Penelope, along with her cagey assistant Zed and her friend Charles—who happens to know a bit of magic himself—to bring this scheme of revenge and murder to a halt before it’s too late. Because if they don’t, Penelope gets the distinct feeling the Brown family won’t be the hidden foe’s last target.

What a fun supernatural & suspenseful tale! While reading this novel, I was captivated by the plot and the characters. Penelope has her issues but she is relatable. The world building was well thought out and I absolutely loved the setting of Greenville, South Carolina. South Carolinian here, y’all! The cover is not impressive but for the most part this is a great novel that I would recommend to YA Supernatural Readers!

As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, Kingsley Boissonneault has done it all—spied, lied, and killed under orders. But his latest assignment is quite out of the ordinary. His commanding officer’s nephew has disappeared inside a sex cult, and Kingsley has been tasked with bringing him home to safety.

The cult’s holy book is Story of O, the infamous French novel of extreme sado-masochism. Their château is a looking-glass world where women reign and men are their willing slaves. Or are they willing? It’s Kingsley’s mission to find out.

Once inside the château, however, Kingsley quickly falls under the erotic spell cast by the enigmatic Madame, a woman of wisdom, power, and beauty. She offers Kingsley the one thing he’s always wanted. But the price? Giving up forever the only person he’s ever loved.

Wowza! What a Steamy One!

My Kindle was sizzling after reading this erotica! Wowza! I have read books by the author in the past and knew she wrote books high on the heat index but this one blew me away. There were so many different & interesting aspects the plot, even a sex cult?! Woah! But I have to admit this one made the panties a little damp!

A young London socialite is brutally murdered by a notorious serial killer in this “compelling” page-turner of dark secrets and deadly investigations (NYTbestselling author Jeffrey Deaver).

Her eyes are wide open. Her lips parted as if to speak. Her dead body frozen in the ice . . . she is not the only one.

When a young boy discovers the body of a woman beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park’s pond, Detective Erika Foster is called in to lead the murder investigation. The victim appeared to have the perfect life — what dark secrets is the girl in the ice hiding?

When Erika begins to dig deeper, she starts to connect the dots between the murder and the killings of three prostitutes. All were found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water around London. As she inches closer to uncovering the truth, the killer is closing in. With her failing career hanging by a thread, Erika must now battle her own personal demons as well as a killer more deadly than any she’s faced before. But will she get to him before he strikes again? 

Damn! The Suspense!

Wow! What a grilling & enthralling thriller! This novel is the first in its series and I think it is perfect for the start of a suspenseful series that many will love! The plot of this novel will have you captivated and you will be on the edge of your seat wanting more. The characterization was well done and thought the background of the characters was explained well and the characters were relatable. The mystery of the story was surprising and I just loved the twists and turns! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great thriller!
