Hey Guys! I thought I'd mix it up today and let you know of a new release by an author other than me! :)
About the Book:
Sixteen-year-old Emme Belrose has it all: four best friends, a horse of her own, a hidden tepee hangout, and a blossoming romance with tall and handsome Charlie. These friends also have a secret. They can move their spirits into animal bodies: an osprey, a mustang, a grizzly, a mountain lion and a coyote. But when Charlie, who has a gift for seeing the future, has a vision of Emme drowning in the icy Yellowstone River, the Spirit Warriors must train their animal bodies to kill an enemy they know is coming… but know nothing about. Suspenseful, romantic, and awash in Native American magic, Spirit Warriors captures the tragic enchantment of the American West—and confirms the power of friendship.

If You Run They Will Chase You
A long time ago before my kids were born, I had a big, over-stuffed, green chair I used to curl up and write in. It was just big enough to sit in sideways, head on one arm, legs thrown over the other. I think I handwrote a good many chapters of Dark Future there.
When my oldest daughter came along, she pretty much took it over. Years later when I gave the green chair away, now covered in dog hair, Kool-Aid stains, and remnants of Cheerios, I didn’t even bat an eye.
My first office was literally a sofa table with my laptop and a basket of pens and sticky notes. I set myself up in the dining room, minus the dining table, and under the low hanging chandelier. I would work while the kids took naps, or more true to life, learned to block out the Blues Clues that were blaring right next to me.
When my youngest was finally able to move into her sister’s room, I rejoiced. It took me all of one afternoon to move the toddler bed over and clear out all her toys. I lugged the heavy sofa table up the stairs and posted all my sticky notes with inspirational sayings on the wall. This was my space. My office. It was a room with a door and more than anything that meant I was a real author.
I got my first request for a full in that office. I pulled a few all-nighters polishing up my manuscript for Texas Wide Open. I believe I sent it off to Harlequin. I’m pretty sure I never heard from them again.
But that’s not the point. The point was I had a bona fide, door-closing, office.
The room sharing thing didn’t go real well. We hung in there for a few years, but when my DH pulled me aside and asked if I would give up my office so that we could have a chance of some peace in our family, I cried.
My little girls rejoiced.
Back downstairs I went, lugging my sofa table with me. This time I set up in the living room off the kitchen—a little farther away from the TV, but right in the middle of the action just the same. The problem was I was too accessible. Too much in the line of sight.
Yeah, go ask mom it’s not like she’s working or anything.
1 New office now upgraded with a real desk
A few months ago the weather started to get nice, and I had a brilliant idea. I took my alphasmart and set up shop outside. With my blanket, some ice tea, and a few snacks, I was good to go.
Figure 2 Way too inviting
It worked for a while. Sometimes I could overhear them in the kitchen.
Where’s mom? Where’s mom?
I never volunteered that information. Not once. But they still found me. The patio furniture was just too conveniently set up in a conversational manner. The cushions too comfortable. The weather too perfect. They clustered around me like a queen bee in a hive.
About two summers ago my husband built my kids a tree house. It’s basically four walls and a floor. The outside looks nice.
The inside looks like something straight from Auschwitz.
The tree house is looking better and better. I can spruce it up. Hang a few sticky notes on the walls. Bring in a blanket.
Now, if I could just find a way of getting my sofa table up the stairs.
KC Klein is celebrating her latest release in the Texas Fever series, Hustlin’ Texas, with a free e-book giveaway. Simply like this blog post, share it on Facebook, or tweet about it on Twitter, and then come back and post what you did, and you’ll be entered into the drawing for a free copy of Hustlin’ Texas.
Below is an excerpt of Hustlin’ Texas. Enjoy and happy reading!
Jett nodded, then glanced around the crowded bar. When he turned his gaze back on her, a person would be hard pressed to describe his eyes as anything sweet or candy like. “I was hoping you’d be up for a little game of nine-ball.”
Nikki took a sip from her beer and raised her brow in question. Nine-ball was the hustler’s game. It was short and quick, without all the rules of straight pool.
He nodded his head toward the tables in the back. “I heard you played.”
“Then you heard wrong.” She took another sip, eying him the whole time. “I’ve given it up for Lent.”
The corner of his mouth hinted at a smile. “Found God, have you?”
“Among other things.”
Jett glanced to the tables, then back to her. “One game. No money.”
Nikki shook her head. “I don’t play for fun. No thrill in it.”
He swallowed, and she could see his jaw work. “Then we’ll play for a favor. A debt. You up for a little more red in your ledger?”
She didn’t want to ask, not really, but gambling was too deep in her blood not to hear the stakes. “What’s the favor?”
He smiled, not the golden boy smile she’d come to know, but instead one that lacked any charm at all. “Well, Texas, that’s the thrill part. You don’t know until the end. Anything goes. No boundaries.”
Her heart did a funky jump-start in her chest at the possibilities, but her game face was ice-cold. “No limits?”
“None. Unless that’s too much heat for you? We could place some ground rules if you want to play it safe.”
Nikki knew what Jett was doing. It was so obvious, and yet, there was that achingly familiar thrill that zipped up her spine and buzzed in her blood. Some families were predisposed toward red hair or near-sightedness. The Logans were addicts. Throw a dart at the family tree and you’d hit a vice—drinking, smoking, shopping. You name it, and the Logans could turn anything into a compulsion. But really, under all the addictions, there was only one. One vice that was as indicative of a Logan as dark hair, brown skin, and blue eyes.
It was very basic, really. The Logans were gamblers.
There were stories as far back as her grandfather, if stories in the Logan family could be believed, who won his first car—a 1950 Cadillac—on the toss of a coin. Then there was her father, Dakota, who’d bet on every sports game invented, and even ones that hadn’t, like golf without clubs. Her father had once bet a hundred dollars on his ability to throw a golf ball through the eighteen holes. Legend had it, he’d won that hundred, but lost the money in the same night in an “I can piss into a can from the second story” contest.
So Jett knew what he was doing. And Nikki was smart enough to know this was more than a simple favor and way more than a simple game of pool. She also knew something else. Jett was no match for her in this game.
She hid her smile with a sip of her drink. The thrill of a “sure thing” was headier than any shot of tequila, more exciting than a leather-jacketed man on a motorcycle.
“Oh, I can take the heat,” she said.
“But can you handle this much heat?”
“Oh, I can handle it. Because we both know I can beat you with one hand tied behind my back and blindfolded.”
His eyebrows arched. “Then you’d best start figuring out what your favor will be.”
Nikki put down her bottle, no longer needing the buzz. “Already have.” Her car fixed…for starters. “You really think you can beat me at pool?”
God, he was so cocky. It was almost tragic.
His eyes narrowed and there was absolutely no humor in his voice when he spoke. “Oh, I’m betting on it.”
: KC Klein has lived most of her life with her head in the clouds and her nose buried in a book. She did stop reading long enough to make a home with a real life hero, her husband, for over sixteen years. A mother of two children, she spends her time slaying dragons, saving princesses, and championing the belief in the happily-ever-after. Her debut novel, Dark Future, is a finalist in the 2012 Prism contest and has been honored with a reviewer’s choice award. Her other titles include a sci- fi, 2012 ROWN award winning romance anthology, Hotter on the Edge, and the first two books in her Texas Fever contemporary romance series, Texas Wide Open, and Hustlin’ Texas.

Only one person in Oak Groves is happy to see bad girl Nikki Logan back in town…
Oak Groves’ most beloved bachelor, Jett Avery, lives by a simple set of rules. Getting involved with a complicated woman isn’t one of them. He learned that the hard way two years ago when he spent one of the most incredible nights of his life with Nikki Logan. But then she hightailed it out of town, never to be seen again—until now. It might be time to break one of those rules…
Picking up the pieces of her life, Nikki is back in Oak Groves, face to face with the one man she’s done her best to forget. But she has her reasons for being here—and they don’t include winding up in bed with Jett. Especially since he’ll never forgive her once he finds out the truth about why she’s back…

“A tortured hero, a love that defies distance and time…this is a book you won’t soon forget.
” –Cat Johnson
Katie Harris loved growing up on a ranch. She had her horse, the beautiful Texas prairie, and Cole Logan, the cowboy next door. But there are a lot of secrets hidden under a Texas sky…
Katie always knew she’d marry Cole one day—until he broke her dreams and her heart. But now that Katie’s father is sick, she’s back home, older, wiser and nowhere near the love-sick fool she once was.
Cole knows Katie doesn’t want anything to do with him. But after so many years, he can’t pretend she’s no more than a neighbor. Holding his ground was hard enough when she was seventeen. Now that she’s her own woman, Cole’s heart doesn’t stand a chance…
“Passionate, gritty and fast paced…with a hot blooded, honorable hero to make every woman's knees go weak.”—Diane Whiteside

Welcome to my stop on the Black Song Inside Blog Tour! Make sure you check out the review!
About the Book:
Atticus Wynn and Rosemary Sanchez, newly engaged private investigators, have seen the dark and violent side of life. Nothing, though, has prepared them for an explosive murder investigation that threatens to tear their relationship apart as they struggle to solve a case that could leave them in prison or dead.
Atticus’s manipulative ex-girlfriend bursts back into their lives wielding a secret about Rosemary’s family that she exploits to force the couple into investigating the execution-style slaying of her lover. The case thrusts Atticus and Rosemary headlong into the world of human trafficking and drug smuggling, while rendering them pawns in Tijuana Cartel captain Armando Villanueva’s bloody bid to take over the cartel.
The Black Song Inside is a vivid crime thriller rife with murder and madness, melded with gallows humor and the heroism of two flawed and compelling protagonists who, if they can save themselves, may learn the nature of redemption and the ability to forgive.
If you ever read my reviews, then you know I'm really about the characters. No book can stand on its own without awesome characters to back it up. I mean, even if the plot isn't great, if the characters are the book will be a success.
Carlyle has done a great job at both the characters and the plot. The setting is awesome and the book is a great addition to any detective-like story lovers collections.
The characters are real and the situations that they are in makes it a believable story. It's the kind of story where you can connect to it at some point- which is always the best for any read.
This book is written in the similar vein as Alex Cross, but different, ya know? If you like those types of books, then this will be for you. There's action, suspense and an attention to detail that makes the book wonderful!
About the Author:
Carlyle Clark was raised in Poway, a city just north of San Diego, but is now a proud Chicagolander working in the field of Corporate Security and writing crime and fantasy fiction. He has flailed ineffectually at performing the writer's requisite myriad of random jobs: pizza deliverer, curb address painter, sweatshop laborer, day laborer, night laborer, security guard, campus police, Gallup pollster, medical courier, vehicle procurer, and signature-for-petitions-getter.
He is a married man with two cats and a dog. He is also a martial arts enthusiast and a CrossFit endurer who enjoys fishing, sports, movies, TV series with continuing storylines, and of course, reading. Most inconsequentially, he holds the unrecognized distinction of being one of the few people in the world who have been paid to watch concrete dry in the dark. Tragically, that is a true statement.
What is The Uglee Pen?
The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc., and for all children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills.
It is also helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.
This ergonomic pen
is really quite comfortable. The squashy grip makes it a very comfortable pen
. It looks a little strange and at first, you might find it to feel like holding one of those squeeze kids toys where you squeeze it and everything pops out or maybe a fishing lure (I'm not a fishing person).
But once you get passed the strange feel, it really is comfortable. I've not had any cramping. I've also found that they work really well for children. My son adores them, he had to test them out first! My 2 year old daughter is constantly "borrowing" them. Her grip on them is better than any other pen that I've seen her use.
If I had to choose a pen, it would definitely be this one.

About the Book:
Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents’ betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn’t letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them.
To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness. Book 2 in the Cassie Scot Mystery series.
If you've not read the first book, go get it now... you're missing out. You'll greatly enjoy it!
This book is a great second book to a series that I hope will have tons of books in it! I absolutely loved it. Cassie is a great character and the kind of strong female role that we need in modern literature these days.
There are so many layers to the story, Christine has done a fabulous job at ensuring that she has kept everything straight and not overly confusing. The end definitely lets you want more and right then as soon as you finish the book. So, Christine, please write faster! I have to know what happens next!
Like in the last book, you really get in touch with each and every character. The families are complex and full of information and characteristics. It's done in a way that doesn't make them seem unrealistic, rather they are more like people you could know in your everyday life.
I cannot wait for the next book and I hope everyone reads these books. They're great and well worth the read.

About the Book:
Punishing himself for a horrific past that is not his fault, bestselling author Alexander Montgomery seeks redemption and love—and perhaps he will find it.
Famous author though he may be, Alexander Montgomery is not someone you take home to meet Mother. Seriously flawed, damaged by a horrific past, he’s trying hard to claw his way back to normality. But how can anyone respect what he truly is? His therapy involves regular sessions at Study in Scarlet, an exclusive S&M club.
Then comes Sage. Tall, with black hair and blue eyes, an up-and-coming actor with impossible charm and boy-next-door good looks, he’s the perfect choice to play the leading man in a TV adaptation of Alex’s last best-seller. Even more, he is a man you introduce to your family. Which Alex would do—if he weren’t taken by another man who offers the punishments Alex prays will wipe away the past and make him the person he wants to be. Yet, perhaps there is another path to redemption. If only the solution would reach out and touch him.

Looks fancy, huh? The top of this bad boy is actually covered in glass... or what feels like glass to me.
About the scale:
The new Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale features auto calibration technology that makes tracking your weight easy, right out of the box. With the latest generation of Step-on Activation, your body weight is displayed immediately upon stepping onto the scale, with no tapping required to turn on or activate the scale. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale accurately displays results in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms on its easy to read widescreen LCD, and uses 4 G sensors to capture weights up to 400 lbs or 180 kg with industry leading accuracy. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale also boasts a convenient unit button that instantly changes the unit of measurement from pounds to kilograms and optionally British stones. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale utilizes an oversized platform, impact resistant tempered glass, and durable construction. It is designed with accuracy, convenience and ease of use in mind. It also turns off automatically to conserve battery life, and runs on 1 Lithium 2032 battery (included) for the best in performance. Your Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.
The scale I got is currently unavailable, but there are at least two others you might want to take a peek at:
Here's my impressions of the scale:
The tempered glass aspect still kind of worries me for a household with kids in it... but I've had mine for a few weeks and so far, it's still in one piece.
It activates as soon as you step on it. I also think that it needs to be a totally level spot for the most accurate readings. So if you have any slightly unleveled areas, just don't put it there.
In going against one of my other scales, it was typically accurate within one pound. If I moved it to a spot that wasn't quite as level, the difference could be 3 pounds.
It has a nice large display, the numbers are easily read and it's a piece of cake to use.
It's a good scale, at a great price. Definitely worth the money.
Welcome to my stop on The Curse of Malenfer Manor Blog Tour. Make sure you enter the giveaway and my check out my review.
About the Book:
Those in line to the Malenfer estate are succumbing to terrible ends –is a supernatural legacy at work, or something entirely more human?
Young Irish mercenary Dermot Ward retreats to Paris at the close of World War I where he drinks to forget his experiences, especially the death of his comrade, Arthur Malenfer. But Arthur has not forgotten Dermot. Dead but not departed, Arthur has unfinished business and needs the help of the living.
Upon his arrival at Malenfer Manor, Dermot finds himself embroiled in a mystery of murder, succession, and ambition. Dermot falls in love with the youngest Malenfer, the beautiful fey Simonne, but in his way are Simonne’s mismatched fiancé, her own connections to the spirit world, Dermot’s guilt over the circumstances of Arthur’s death… and the curse.
When a book is so full of twists, turns, details, and awesomeness, a reviewer has a hard time putting down enough words for any one that might read the reviews to understand that the book was great, I just don't want to ruin anything.
Iain has a gift for his characters. I think that was the thing that I liked best about the book. These people that he brings to life aren't just 2D. They are like real people, people you could've known your entire life and they just had a secret past or something just as amazing.
The book is well-written and doesn't necessarily end up where you might expect. Iain does a great job of tying the pieces together and answering the readers' questions. The book leaves you feeling satisified and glad you took the ride with the author.
It's a great read for those that enjoy a mixing genre... it has a lot of elements. Check it out!
About the Author:
Iain is a writer of gothic mysteries.
He was born and raised in Scotland. He studied History and Geography at the University of Glasgow.
The World Wars left Iain’s family with generations of widows. As a result, Iain has always been interested in the tangible effects of history on family dynamics and in the power of narrative to awaken those long dead. For the characters in The Curse of Malenfer Manor, he drew on childhood reminiscences and verbal family history—though he hastens to add that his family had barely a penny, far less a manor, and any ghosts dwell only in memory.
He lives in Vancouver, Canada, with his wife and two children.
Welcome to my stop on the Ivory blog tour! Make sure to check out my review, grab the book if you like what you read and check out my blog. There's lots of things going including the Dystopian Blog Hop!
About the Book:
As a child in the desert kingdom of Gryth, Ivory witnessed the brutal murder of her parents at the hands of a sinister race known as the Lecs.
Now Queen of her people, a vengeance-fueled Ivory launches a final battle to annihilate the enemy once and for all. But on the eve of war, betrayed by her own kind and left in the hands of the Lecs, she's forced to learn the shocking truth about their two peoples, and the diabolical curse that's plagued them for centuries.
Armed with newfound knowledge and unexpected allies, Ivory must face the real enemy that's haunted her all her life, and make a choice that will mean the difference between a new beginning and the end of the world.
Ivory is an exercise in duality made reality; an exploration of darkness and light, male and female, sun and moon… seen through the eyes of two cultures ripped apart by an ancient evil whose pain resonates through the ages like the beating of a drum.
When an author takes the time to get the reader to feel an connection with their characters- any sort of connection- that author has succeeded in one of the most difficult tasks they can have. F.M. has done just that. Her characters are real in a world that is both familiar and different from the ones most readers are used to.
F.M. taps into the human aspect of her characters, the way we all relate to small elements, chances encounters, and life happenings.
The book is a great read and definitely captures the reader in the storyline, but that wouldn't work if she didn't have good characters.
This is the type of book where you'll want to clear some time and just sit and read it. You won't want to put it down. But be warned, it's like riding a roller coaster of not only emotions but plot.
About the Author:
Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:
F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.
But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A.. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.
