☆~Thankful for my Followers~☆~Recieving Requests and Copies from Awesome Authors~☆

I have loved becoming a book blogger and all the added perks! I have met amazing people and amazing authors! I am so happy with my stats and traffic on my blog! Awesome Sauce!😁📚💃

When I first joined WordPress I thought I was going to fail at this blogger business. I mean, who wants to hear my random behind blabber and to be honest I was a bit intimidated.

That all changed when I met some awesome people and started to let some of the anxiety go! Kim at By Hook Or By Book took me under her wing and I started getting involved with everyone! I am still working on not putting my foot in my mouth and being a better blogger but no way thought I could get almost 300 more followers within the last month and get so many shout-outs! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I am so grateful for everyone and try my best to always interact back as soon as possible! I couldn’t do this without you guys and I am so happy to be part of the blogging community!

Today, I recieved an autographed copy of the book Birthrights by J. Kyle McNeal. His shout out in his autograph made my day just like the award I recieved from Darque Dreamer Reads today.

I just wanted to share with you guys that being part of this community and interacting with everyone has been a life saver for me! I have chronic illnesses that cause me not to be able to go out and have lost many of friendships unfortunately. Having you guys as followers and interacting with you has been a Godsend! Everyday everyone here makes my world a little brighter!

Okay enough with the mushy gushy stuff, I know! Lol. I am sharing with you guys some books and autographs I have recieved within the last month! I hope everyone has a fantastic day and weekend! Happy reading lovelies!📚😁

About Annie as published on her website@ http://www.anniewoodsbooks.com/about.html

Hi there,
I’m Annie Woods, a Swedish author, who has spent a lot of time in the USA and UK.

Reading has always been a big part of my life. I’m especially addicted to YA and teen love stories. The books I read as a teenager have stuck with me through life and I still love YA books more than any other kind of literature.

YA books just have so much more to them, don’t you think? With all their intensity and all-consuming feelings; the first crush and the emotion of it all; the characters you get to know and love and who stay with you long after the story is over.


My own YA novel First Came Forever, which is the first book in the Angelheart Saga trilogy, has just been published. I am so nervous and excited about sharing the story with you all and to hear what you think about it. I also hope that you will get to love Erica, Sasha and Tyler just as much as I do. I have been living with them for years now that I actually think about them as real-life-persons, like old friends that I wish the very best for.

I also have to admit that Erica is pretty much based off of myself. I’ve always been a reader, a true bookworm who sometimes (too often) prefer books to people. Erica is just a tiny bit… oh, alright, A LOT… smarter and better looking and with way more integrity.

But, just like me, she’s clumsy (we both actually walk into walls, missing the door opening), a kind of bad driver, but a great runner finding peace and quiet and respite from all demands out in the woods with her running shoes on.


Picture
Just like Erica, I grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. But I’ve also spent a lot of time in USA, mostly in New York, and UK. I feel like I have two home towns – Stockholm and New York, but most of all home is where my family is. My family, yes, I am married and have two gorgeous children. And a dog.

I can also tell you that there are so many things I love, like music, theatre, dance, art, movies and books. Anything that brings magic to your life, really.

I also love traveling with my family and experiencing the world together and doing outdoor activities, like hiking, surfing or skiing. I’ve been hiking a lot in the Swedish mountains as well as in Yosemite in US and skied a lot in the Alps. I’ve also done some other exciting traveling, which you probably can tell from reading First Came Forever, for example through South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mocambique. In Zimbabwe we stayed at in tents in the middle of nowhere, doing amazing walking safaris at sunrise, and in Botswana we did hippo safaris on the river. I also love Cambodia and Vietnam, which is quite obvious from the book… On the top of my bucket list I have walking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, I hope to be able to do that very soon!


Also, I just want to tell you that Annie Woods is a pen name. I use it to keep my YA author life a bit separate from my other professional life. Kind of lame, I know. Sorry about that. The avatar I use as my photo resembles me so much though, that some of my friends might soon figure out that I’m behind Annie Woods… so it really feels like it’s me anyway.

Hope everyone has a great day and is able to check out this awesome author and book!

*~📚Deadly Spirits👻 by: E. Michael Helms~5 stars~*

I want to give a huge thank you to E. Michael Helms for providing me with a copy of Deadly Spirits in exchange for an honest review! Michael is an amazing author and such a kind southern gentleman! You can find his blog at https://emichaelhelms.wordpress.com

Synopsis: PI Mac McClellan is dragged to a Palmetto Paranormal Society outing by his girlfriend Kate. Mac is sarcastic and completely a skeptic when it comes to said “ghosts” but will do anything for Kate. The society members split up to investigate an old hotel but are shocked when the society president is found with his neck broken and dead.

Suspciously, nobody heard the president fall to his death. The president’s current girlfriend is found next to his body screaming! After the police process the scene they rule the death as an accident.

When Mac is told about the accidental ruling, it does not sit well with him. If the man fell down the stairs by accident wouldn’t they hear him tumbling down the stairs? Suddenly, the president’s girlfriend is found dead and it is ruled as a suicide.

The two deaths both occurred at Palmetto Paranormal Society outings! Mac doesn’t believe for a second this is a coincidence and takes matters in his own hands. Mac’s veteran gut instinct puts him on the investigation but death and murder attempts are full blown in this southern town. Will Mac be able to figure out whodunit and save his own ass in the process? Read Deadly Spirits by E. Michael Helms to find out!

Review: Wow!!! This book was fantastic and I give it without hesitation 5 out 5 mysterious stars! I had to put this book off for a little bit because I got sick but started reading it last night. I stayed up all night turning pages to this fun mystery until I finished but it was worth the sleepless night! This book made me smile, laugh, gave me the jeepers creepers and warmed my heart. Mac’s character is fantastic! He is the epitome of a southern gentleman.

Mac has his faults but he is such a good hearted southern man. I also thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humor and his love for Kate. I agree with many women in this book that Kate is a lucky woman! I also enjoyed Kate’s compassionate spirit. Dakota was also a fantastic character with her rugged past but a custom personality fitted with mouth of a sailor. I loved the characterization in Deadly Spirits.

I loved how this book had me turning pages and at the edge of my seat with suspense. This was the perfect novel for the Halloween season. Even though Deadly Spirits is Book 4 in the series, you can definitely read this book as a standalone basis. This book gives you just the right amount of details about the character’s past so you don’t feel like your missing something.

I will definitely not be reading Deadly Spirits as a standalone. I can’t wait until I get the chance to devour the rest of this series! I loved your writing Mr. Helms and Mac’s southern chivalrous personality! I will follow you anywhere!😊📚❤

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!😁
