I am also celebrating the cooler weather, I love pulling out my hoodies and boots.  I have such a wonderful collection.

If you could see the memories of every person you met would it be a blessing or a curse?


John Calabrace's life has been in havoc since he was a very small child. He spends his life fighting through a flood of memories, most of which are not his own. The second he is touched by another person, he knows every memory & feeling they have ever experienced, and those memories stay permanently etched in his head.


What might seem to be a wonderful gift to some, also has its dark sides. John flees college, finding solace in the Navy serving on a Navy ship and then aboard a nuclear submarine. That relative peace and isolation of submarine life is quickly taken away after being extracted and recruited into a world of espionage to unlock other secrets from around the world.


Is he an angel, is he a monster? Even the military men/ government handlers can't decide. While John may know …

That Thing Formerly Known As My Life Review

Image
A cross-country move wasn’t exactly what McKinley had in mind for her senior trip, but leave it to her parents to up and move to Rhode Island. Her senior year was supposed to be awesome, but when she ticks off popular cheerleader Taylor, it goes from bad to worse.

The only good thing about moving is the mysterious, Camaro-driving, all-around-likeable Nick Phelan. But that mysterious thing that makes him so likeable is also making McKinley suspicious.

Nick hides secrets. McKinley harbors doubts. Taylor bares her teeth. But dealing with moving and Taylor is nothing compared to the biggest secret of all.


I thought this book was very interesting even if the plot was a bit predictable.  It did make me super hungry though, and I thought that McKinley was a touch whiny for someone her age but that did make for room for character development.   So all in all a good read.

Billionaires and Bagman Promo Blitz

Image
Fiction, Political Fiction Date Published:  March 2016





Are you fed up with politics, payoffs, corporate mega-profits at a cost to taxpayers, immunization of white collar crime, bribes and favors guiding the decisions made by our elected officials? Have you had ENOUGH of politics? There is only one way to fix it – rewrite the rules. It can be done!
Midwest Book Review “Highly Recommended”
Billionaires and Bagmen: What Happens When A Small Town Takes Them On, offers a surprising solution to the question many people are asking since the Conventions: How can we take our lives back from an over-reaching government, Wall Street power brokers, lobbyist-written laws, the billionaires who buy them off and candidates we don’t like?

His answer is for local governments to simply ignore Big Brother’s rules and write their own. All across America, town by town, regardless of who is president or who big money controls. It’s called Civil Disobedience.

History is full with examples of people refusing t…

Trojan Promo Blitz

Thriller, Political Thriller Date Published: February 2016 




A high-profile US based assassination was just the beginning…
Victor Walker's main responsibility as Sr. Manager of White House Defense Armament Systems, was to ensure America's flagship arsenal remain up and operational, but just days after an assassination on US soil, all flagship armament systems crashed – a complete meltdown. Star Wars, Air Force One, Doomsday Briefcase and Guidance Systems were all rendered useless.
With an attack by a foreign entity seemingly eminent, Victor found something didn't pass the smell test. Indicators pointed closer to home, to a rodent on the loose – to a Trojan with ties to the assassination who was now targeting his family. As he raced to bring the armament systems back online and keep his family safe, he uncovered clues indicating a mole deep within the government who didn’t want him to resolve the crisis, to someone he once thought he could trust.

Celebrate the Small Things is hosted by Lexa Cain along with wonderful co- hosts Writing Off The Edge and The Cyborg Mom.

This week I am celebrating getting through the week without having gone insane, which is no small accomplishment.

I did not post last week due to much insanity at work but we got to go out to Fan Expo over Labour Day weekend and my daughter used her spending money to meet Andrea Libman, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy from My Little Pony.  So that was last week's celebration.


What are you celebrating this week?

The Emerald Key by Mark Frederickson & Melora Pineda

Penny and Laci are headed for a mundane summer vacation until a mysterious journal unlocks a portal to another world and they find themselves face to face with a baby dragon.

Praise for The Emerald Key

“In The Emerald Key, authors Mark Frederickson and Melora Pineda take readers on a fast-paced journey sure to enthrall not only middle-grade readers but their parents, as well. Laci and Penny will appeal to anyone looking for strong, resourceful female characters and the side characters are well-developed and hilarious, too (my favorite might be Buzz!).…

Currently....
{I read Jamie Morrow's Currently every week and I always want to hop on board because it seems like such a fun way to keep you guys updated on the stuff going on in my life so here I am.}
Loving...
That the weather is cooling down and I can start pulling out pants, long sweaters and boots.  It's a whole wardrobe change and it feels great.
Reading...
Work has had me too tired to read lately, I have been so behind on all the reading.  I just finished a really great book, There Once Were Stars by Melanie McFarlane and I have other books that I want to start reading but when I get home I am so brain dead because we are changing systems that I just stare at the TV and play My Little Pony.
Watching...
Right now I am rewatching Gilmore Girls, almost at the end of Season Three.  I am hoping that I can hold out to finish the rewatch in time to be ready for the new ones.
Listening To...
Star Wars: Life Debt on Audible, I can't remember the last time I actually listened to …

Mystra Promo Blitz

Science Fiction/Fantasy Date Published: July 15, 2016




In the wake of the Kryllidar war, creatures of myth and legend, the elder races, and the psychically gifted fled the telepath phobic Alliance worlds in search of sanctuary. They found their safe haven on the planet Mystra. It was a paradise world, then something went horribly. A great cataclysm unleashed a storm of deadly energy that threatened to tear the planet apart. Cut off from the rest of space by a barrier of destructive force, all appeared lost. Then from despair came hope. The energies unleashed by the cataclysm had an unexpected effect. Dormant genes carried by women of an ancient Druidic line were suddenly activated, giving the women the ability to control the elemental forces of nature. The elementals saved Mystra from destruction, but their newfound power came with a price. The incredible forces they wielded, in time, destroyed them. Only by bonding with a male, who also carried the dormant gene, could an elemental be s…
