About The Book:

Seven teenagers. Seven chakras. Seven keys to save humanity.

In 2035, fifteen-year-old Rae, an orphan, has chosen silence. Or perhaps silence has chosen her. After the sudden death of her father, she has lost her ability to speak.

But that is the least of her problems. An elusive genius known as the Keeper has created an advanced AI program—Spirit Era—that predicts the world will end in two years without massive human intervention. The solution? Seven teenage volunteers who must work together to prevent this doomsday. Despite her reluctance to apply, Rae is selected, along with six other teens from the four corners of the world, to save humanity.

Spirit Era has designed seven Mantras, virtual reality worlds revealing the seven most likely apocalyptic disasters. Within these Mantras are concealed seven keys that will unlock humanity’s potential to stand in the way of planetary destruction and fight for the future of the world. The seven chosen ones—quiet Rae, hotheaded Chayton, sensual Helen, quick-witted Ali, gentle Keiji, intense Alpha, and reserved Stepan—must journey into these worlds to find the keys.

Root, the first book in this gripping saga, follows the seven into a hyperrealistic simulation of the not-too-distant future, where the rich have seized control of the world’s resources following a global famine triggered by a devastating loss of biodiversity. In order to escape this possible future, the seven must join together and use all their powers to find the key—and survive the simulation.

Two years left until the end of the world. The countdown begins . . .

Reviews:

"With constant action and inevitable excitement, YA readers with a passion for social change will not only thrill at seeing themselves in the teenage characters tasked with upending society, but will also connect with current realities." —Kirkus Reviews

"In the vein of Divergent and Endgame, I felt snapped up! [It has] the same feeling as when you arrive in the unique universe of Harry Potter. [Root] is a real world apart!" —Aurore Ouaki, literary journalist on Tandem TV

"I loved each of the seven characters; I found myself in each of them. A beautiful message." —Leona Reading, author

About The Book:

Controlling the wolf inside is never guaranteed…

Tala always thought she was an average teen—her biggest issue was her parents hating her boyfriend, but that doesn't even come close to the truth. On her eighteenth birthday, she shifts for the first time and discovers the family secret: she's a wolf. And her boyfriend? He's the rival pack's next alpha.

Connor, next in line to be pack alpha, is forced to give up everything his heart desires and walk away from the girl he thought was his forever to keep her safe—even from himself, only to realize she's his fated mate and their love is utterly forbidden.

Facing betrayals from close friends, rescuing loved ones who've been taken, and fighting against the family feud of a lifetime, Connor and Tala must decide: family or fate?

About The Book:

In a world that has ever only known war, generations still swing their swords on whispers of conflict from centuries past.

In Physis, the law of the land is 'every territory for itself.' Lineage is everything; racial identification is paramount; and territory loyalty is the code by which one lives or dies. But when a few individuals decide the given system isn’t working, everything begins to change.

What will happen to the world when inherited authority is questioned; when standards of judgment are re-evaluated; and when independent thinkers redefine purpose for a new generation of leaders?

In The Refuge by N. Ford, readers travel from the snowy mountain estates of The Diamond Isles to the clay arenas of a warrior's life in Agon. They sail the Physis Sea, chasing mystery and meaning, and swim in the clear pool at the bottom of the Western Bay. Readers will meet love, loss, and sacrifice anew, while discovering what purpose can do when it’s authentic and hard-won.

The coach repair moves incredibly slowly, and it becomes clear that his host is attempting to manipulate a match between his daughter and Lawford.

Each year, Sadie Campion looks forward to the May Day Matchmaking Festival, but this year will be different as she plans to find a husband—and not one chosen by her father and brothers. Especially not a stiff, arrogant peer from London.

To stop Sadie’s meddling family, Law offers to pretend to court her. Grateful for the reprieve and also for the popularity the duke’s faux interest gives her, Sadie becomes the belle of the festival. But when the make-believe becomes all too real, Law wonders if she isn’t the match he was destined to make…

About The Book:

What’s more terrifying than being forced into a coed combat wrestling martial art by your own mother? Sixth grade.

Angie Larson hates Jiu-Jitsu. Like many twelve-year-old girls, she fails to find the glamour in a martial art that embraces zero personal space and choking as an end goal. Seriously, people choke her, drip sweat on her face, and even wrap their legs around her neck. It’s the worst. Instead, she idolizes the seemingly perfect kids at her school who do “normal” activities like dance or soccer. But just when it seems like Angie is about to be accepted by them, her mom enrolls her in a Jiu-Jitsu tournament and begins a relationship with the sweatiest coach on the planet. And to make things more complicated, Angie develops a close friendship with a boy who is definitely not part of the “cool” crowd.

Angie must decide who she is while making some painful decisions both on and off the mat. Is she a dance girl, a soccer girl, a nothing girl . . . or a Jiu-Jitsu girl?

About The Book:

From Vol 1:

Gina Meyers is a Private Investigator who makes her living in the underbelly of London. She's also a witch. Not the cutesy kind. The terrifying kind. Witchcraft meets spycraft, when a shadowy government organization abducts Gina.

BLACK MAGIC MEETS BLACK OPS.

Worried your partner is cheating? Need a missing person found?

Gina Meyers is the Private Investigator for you. Sure, she’s a witch who worries that her powers make her more of a monster than the crooks she’s trying to catch, but it’s not like London’s criminal underworld is literally going to hell… is it? Spy craft meets black magic in the shadowy world of MI666.

Collects issues #1 to #5 of the ten issue series.

"Shadow Service stands tall next to the likes of Criminal Macabre and Hellblazer in the world of supernatural detectives while still putting its own spin on it to stand apart." – Horror DNA

"If you enjoy some of the darker books from the Big Two that dive into the world of magic, demons and witches (bring on the Hellblazer comparisons!) this is definitely worth a read. As for me, it follows the script of what I like from the first issue of a brand new series—introducing the characters, showcasing some bonkers imagery, and leaving me on a cliffhanger that screams 'I dare you to come back and see where all this leads!'"  --- Comic Book.com

About The Book:

Chavez Delgado should come with a warning label: Caution explosive material. A volatile tennis prodigy once tipped to win majors, this wildly unpredictable fan favorite never quite lived up to all the hype. So when he leaves the tennis tour without explanation during the best year of his career, no one expects him to grind out a comeback on the second-tier Challenger circuit eight months later.


I’ve met my share of hot messes. Call it collateral damage of being Flynn Dryden—motivational guru to struggling millennials. But I have never met anyone like Chavez. Young and yummy with complications written all over him, he pushes all my right buttons. But when he asks me to join him on tour as his mental fitness coach, I say yes for all the wrong reasons.

As it turns out, we both have unresolved issues.

And playing a game called love puts us both in danger of getting burned.

THIS IS A FULL-LENGTH REVERSE AGE GAP SPORTS ROMANCE BRIMMING WITH SULTRY SEDUCTION AND DELICIOUS SUSPENSE AND FEATURING 2023'S MOST SMOKING HOT INTERRACIAL COUPLE. IN THIS HAPPILY EVER AFTER, THE ONLY WILD CARD IS A THING CALLED LOVE!

About The Book:

"Deep beautiful, and true--a classic from cover to cover."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Eoin Colfer

There are more secrets in the ocean than in the sky...

Ten-year-old Julia loves the mysteries of the ocean and marine biology, just like her scientist mother. Her family is spending the summer on a remote island where her mom is searching for the elusive Greenland shark, a creature that might be older than the trees, and so rare that it’s only been seen a few times.  

But the ocean is reluctant to give up its secrets, and Julia tries not to worry as her mother returns disappointed at the end of each day.  

Determined to prove that the shark is real, Julia sets off on a quest to find it herself, armed with a set of coordinates, a compass, and her trusty rain jacket. 

She soon realizes that there are some journeys you shouldn’t go on alone. As Julia comes face to face with the dark and wondrous truths of the sea, she finds the strength to leave the shark in the depths and kick up towards the light.  

Through a unique blend of poetic prose and stunning illustrations, Julia and the Shark tells an unforgettable story full of dark depths and starry skies, courage and hope.

About The Book:

One fateful encounter upends the lives of two women in this tense domestic thriller, a modern spin on Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers On A Train that flips the script on race and gender politics. 

“I’m a big believer that women should help each other, Tasha,” she says. “Don’t you think?”

Tasha Jenkins has finally found the courage to leave her abusive husband. Taking her teenage son with her, Tasha checks into a hotel the night before their flight out of D.C. and out of Kordell Jenkins’s life forever. But escaping isn’t so easy, and Tasha soon finds herself driving back to her own personal hell. As she is leaving, a white woman pounds on her car window, begging to be let in. Behind the woman, an angry man is in pursuit. Tasha makes a split-second decision that will alter the course of her life: she lets her in and takes off. 

Tasha and Madison Gingell may have very different everyday realities, but what they have in common is marriages they need out of. The two women want to help each other, but they have very different ideas of what that means . . .

They are on a collision course that will end in the case files of the D.C. MPD homicide unit. Unraveling the truth of what really happened may be impossible‒and futile. Because what has the truth ever done for women like Tasha and Madison?

But both are rumored to be in the neighboring Elysium Empire, which has a long history of war with Olympia. Making matters worse, Gen’s former enemy and newly designated heir to the isle of Arcadia Castor invites herself on the journey, hoping a golden apple could end Arcadia’s reliance on Illumium for storm vials. And Castor’s twin brother, Gen’s StormMaker boyfriend Pollux, has been pulling away from Gen due to troubles stemming from her mind magic.

With Castor’s pirate-thief girlfriend and Pollux’s servant companion in tow, the unlikely team embarks on its voyage.

About The Book:

They say that legends are born, not made.

But for Jeremy Goodson and Masaru Hagen that is far from the truth. Confronted by something that neither of them can explain, two complete strangers from opposite sides of the world embark on an unforgettable journey that will forge them into living legends.

It has been almost 4,000 years since magic disappeared from the Earth. Hidden from humanity by the Veil, those who possess magic live in ancient settlements across the globe. Over the centuries, these beings have pierced the Veil, leaving behind glimpses and shadows of the fantastic and arcane. Fueled by distant memories and humanity’s desire for wonder, familiar stories of myths and legends have been passed down for thousands of years in nearly every culture and nation.

Jeremy Goodson, an average, overweight teacher in New York City finds his entire world turned upside down when a stranger tempts him to leave everything behind and start a journey that will test Jeremy’s mysterious gift and bring magic and hope back to humanity.

Masaru Hagen, the adopted son of American tech entrepreneurs living in Tokyo, has been guided by an unseen voice all his life. On the eve of his twentieth birthday, the voice leads him across thousands of miles, on a mysterious and perilous mission he alone can undertake.

But there are principalities of this world that will do whatever they can to stop Jeremy and Masaru and keep magic out of the hands of humanity forever.

One of these men will bring hope to the world; the other will bring death. The world they once knew will be changed forever, not only for themselves, but for everyone on Earth… and maybe not for the best.

About the Book


Title:
 
THE BEAST
Author: Denise Daye
Paperback Pub. Date: February 28, 2023
Publisher: Denise Daye
Formats: eBook
Pages: 300

He's a cold-blooded killer. Devilishly hot and wildly dangerous.
Most people would tell me I'm crazy.
Most people would call him a monster and tell me to run.
But in the broken world I live in, that's the only sort of man you want.

When he found me in a puddle of blood, at the mercy of my mobster husband's thugs, I was ready to die. I just looked at him with empty eyes, permitting him to keep walking and never look back. But instead, he told me to look away and took care of business. My nails dug into his steel-hard arms as he carried me to his car and vowed I was now his.

Of course I knew who my dark knight was.
Andrei f$$$ing Kowtisch.
Feared assassin. Merciless beast. A man who fights fire with fire.

I guess that means it's payback time because nobody touches Andrei's property. Unless you're the most dangerous mobster on the East Coast who swore to get me back not matter the cost...


This book contains sexual content, a dark hero, and profanity. No cliffhangers, no cheating, and no menage. Recommended for 18+

Blog Tour- THE BLUE HOUSE by #myrnadenhamporter With An Excerpt & #Giveaway! @PRbytheBook, & @RockstarBkTours

Jaime | 11:02 AM | 2 Comments

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the THE BLUE HOUSE by Myrna Denham Porter Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

 

About The Book:

Title: THE BLUE HOUSE

Author: Myrna Denham Porter

Pub. Date: January 13, 2022

Publisher: Myrna Denham Porter

Formats: Paperback, eBook

Pages: 245

Find it: Goodreadshttps://books2read.com/The-Blue-House

This is a memoir of a woman who grew up at the edge of the Canadian Prairies. For Myrna “no woman is an island” and she attributes a “life worth living” to the mentors along the way, as well as her combined parents’ Christian values. To Myrna, in today’s society, these values seem to be slipping away. Commitment, persistence, hard work, love and forgiveness, though harshly delivered by her father and lovingly delivered by her mother, were all part of Myrna’s early childhood.

 

Excerpt-Chapter 1

On the Canadian Prairie

Atop a Throne of Cordwood 

Very clearly, in memory, I see the girl I was at  fourteen, beautiful and determined, leaving the  blue house where she had grown up. 

I see myself in the back of a truck, perched atop a  pile of logs soon to be cut for cordwood. The two  men inside the truck, transporting the wood to be  sold in a distant village, show no concern for any  danger I might face traveling over bumpy roads,  balanced precariously on that heavy load. As the  truck heads down the long driveway, the girl I  was looks back at her home for the last time. 

When I think of that moment, I feel both sadness and  compassion for that naïve, determined girl. I understand  now that, while none of us can know what lies ahead, the  way we set off, the spirit in which the journey is begun,  will determine if we see the path ahead through a glass  lightly, or darkly. 

They say that character is destiny. Clearly, my character at that young age was still forming. Perhaps I knew  what I didn’t want to become more clearly than what I did want. A spirit of defiance was enough to propel  me down the road. While my body rocked and bumped  down the drive away from the blue house, something in  my core felt steady and sure even as it moved into the  unknown. Now, approaching fourscore years on earth, I  see that departure in a different light. It tells me something about goodbyes and how important it is to always  say, “I love you.” 

In the kitchen, as I prepared to leave, flies buzzed in  and out of the torn screen in the window, drawn by the  unwashed pots and pans in and around the sink. Moth er stood kneading bread dough over and over, refusing  to look up at me. This was not how I knew her to be.  My childhood memories are full of Mother putting my  hands in hers and then looking directly into my eyes  with such loving kindness, or simply patting my head  softly. It was her way of connecting. Through the simplest gestures, she transmitted an unshakable belief in  her children. Her love gave each of us a positive sense of  self so that we were assured of success, no matter what  obstacles we might face. Yet today, the last day that I  would ever live in the blue house, the sudden end of my  childhood, Mother would not look up. Without her loving, assuring eyes connecting with mine, for a moment  my confidence was shaken. 

My sister Linda recalled when she left nearly ten  years later, heading for California to live with relatives,  Mother was hoeing the garden and refused to look up  or say goodbye. Why would Mother not acknowledge her daughters as they set out into the world? Was it just  too painful to confront the prospect of us vanishing for  good? Was she worried about all that could happen to us  leaving home at only fourteen years of age? Or was she  perhaps thinking that while I was managing to escape  our miserable life of utter poverty, she never would? Was  this why she kept kneading the bread dough, refusing to  look up, with just moments left between us? All of these  questions rode roughshod across my heart. 

I believe she was neither cold nor indifferent; rather,  her pain was so deep it caused her to behave in a way  that was contrary to her kind and affirming nature. Perhaps it was a lingering memory of the loss of our oldest  sister. 

While Mother would eventually give birth to seven teen children, her first pregnancy occurred at seventeen  years of age. The first born, Donaldene Margaret, lived  for one month. In that time, the child suffered a bowel problem requiring Mother to give her enemas with  a sharpened bar of soap. Little Donaldene, in constant  pain, cried a lot. One night, sleeping between my parents,  she died. My parents didn’t know if the cause was crib death or a result of her bowel troubles. Mother always  said, “I wanted to die that night, too.” My parents kept  her tiny casket in the house, with the lamp on throughout the night, the saddest vigil. 

Perhaps this was why Mother stood in the kitchen,  silently kneading the bread, on the day of my departure.  This image of my mother, unwilling, or unable, to look up and truly see me one last time, the sense of missed  connection, haunted me deeply as we drove away from  the blue house, and it has haunted me ever since. 

Linda, eight years old at the time, still remembers  watching me lurch and bounce away atop that pile of  cordwood. All she could think, watching me recede into  invisibility, was, “Oh, my God!” 

It is important to leave the people we love knowing  how we feel about them in our hearts. Even if they cannot fully receive this message in the moment, the words  can grow inside them, and perhaps comfort them at a  later time when they might really need that fortification.  The truth is, we never know what will happen. We never  know how, or even if, we will see each other again. 

I cannot recall what I was thinking when I left the  blue house for the last time, at the start of a hundred-mile  trip to the town of Wynyard. I was heading for my ma ternal grandmother’s home, with plans to attend high  school there in the fall. For the summer, I had been offered a job on a farm just outside of the town, working  for a couple I had never met. 

I was headed toward an unknown destiny. Yet, as I  struggled to get comfortable atop the sharp, hard wood,  I do remember one very distinct feeling: a fierce, almost  wild hope, rising. I was finally moving towards a conviction I had long held in my heart like an inextinguishable  talisman: I am somebody, and I am going to be somebody greater. Here was the first realization in my gladdening heart that the destination was not a place. My north star was the belief that, having escaped the blue  house at last, I was headed to something greater. As I  clung tightly to the old straw rope that loosely held the  logs in place, I did not know or consider what lay ahead  of me. I just knew I had to survive the journey.

 

 

About Myrna Denham Porter:

Myrna was born in 1940 into a family of seventeen children in a remote area of Saskatchewan, Canada. It was an area where conditions were harsh, aspirations were low and few attended high school. Inspired by her mother to further her education, Myrna left home at the age of fourteen to work as a nanny while attending high school. 

At the age of seventeen, she emigrated to the United States. After a successful career in the early sixties as a flight attendant, she married, raised two children, and obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Through her career and volunteer work, Myrna is proud to acknowledge she has made a difference in the lives of others. She believes that through these activities a sense of contentment and peace is obtained.

 Encouraged by her good friend and associate, psychologist and author Dr. Jacob Shefa, to write her story, Myrna began her memoirs several years ago. When she began her memoirs, her intention was to leave a legacy of strong values and a guide for “a life worth living” for her grandchildren as well as future generations. But as Myrna wrote, she began to realize others might benefit from her story.
