“Struck: The Lightning Project Book 1” will be released on December 1st via CHBB / Encompass Teen Publishing

If you think there’s something more embarrassing than your crush walking in on you literally bouncing off your bedroom walls while shrieking your favorite Forever Fading Echoes song into your hairbrush, you’re wrong.

You’re so very wrong.

“Are you ok?” Adam asked me, an amused smile making his gorgeous lips twitch. I could tell he was dying to laugh.

“Uh, yeah,” I mumbled, face burning. “I just uh…I really love this song.”

“Really? Because you’re murdering it,” he replied, evil grin spreading across his stupid, handsome face.

“Is making obvious jokes your super power?” I snapped, crossing my arms and quirking a brow.

He chuckled, that adorable grin going dark as he tugged up the hem of his soft cotton tee shirt to expose his perfectly toned stomach. His abs looked like they were carved from weirdly sexy stone.

“Nope, I think it’s these.”

“I hate you, get out,” I yelled, but I couldn’t help but smile.

Ever since I’d agreed to stay with The Project, we’d been spending more time together. Jones had even agreed to let Adam train me in hand-to-hand combat. So I spent an unfair amount of time on my back, gazing up at him while he towered over me (if they ever make a movie of my life, this is where the training montage should be, FYI). I wasn’t complaining, that’s for damn sure.

The Sacrifice Box Blog Tour & Review

SacrificeBox_BlogBanner

A horror story about friendship, growing up, and finding a place in the world: Gremlins meets The Breakfast Club by way of Stephen King and Stranger Things.

1982, the summer before seventh grade. Five kids with nothing in common–Sep, Arkle, Hadley, Lamb, and Mack–become instant friends. On the last day of summer, they find a stone box buried in the forest, and each places an object inside to seal their friendship. And they make rules:

Never come to the box alone.
Never open it after dark.
Never take back your sacrifice.

1986, the summer before eleventh grade. The five haven’t spoken since that day in 1982. Sep has gone through the past four years alone and plans to escape to boarding school. But strange things are happening–mirrors are breaking unexpectedly, electricity is flickering in and out, and people are coming down with inexplicable physical ailments.

Someone has broken the rules. And it seems the five committed more than objects to the box’s ancient stone–they gave it their deepest secrets and darkest fears, and now these are being returned in a flood of shambling corpses, murderous toys, and undead pets. The gang must reunite in an attempt to discover the secrets of the sacrifice box–and Sep might be the only one who can stem its tide of evil before it’s too late.

REVIEW:

4ibxdpbyT4ibxdpbyT4ibxdpbyT4ibxdpbyT

I loved this book! Perfect for anyone (aka ME) who’s waiting anxiously for the next season of Stranger Things, and the second part of the new IT movie! I’m a lover of the 80s, even though I was born right at the end.  This book had everything it promised and more. It had horror, loads of it, and outstandingly done, but it also had humor and an amazing sense of time and place. I really felt grounded in the book, which made the horror all the more real. Comparing it to some other horror I’ve read recently, it felt a little lacking in the depth of the characters, but overall, it kept me turning pages way later into the night then I should’ve been, and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. The book has got great pacing, good main characters, and the plot is unique and terrifying. As others have mentioned, there’s a real Stand by Me/IT/Goonies vibes in this book, so if any of that appeals to you, pick this up!

1970 (The Seven Book #1) by Sarah M. Cradit – Pre-Order Blitz


1970, The Seven Book #1
Author: Sarah M. Cradit
World: Saga of Crimson & Clover
Designation: Crimson & Clover Origin Series
Genre: Historical Fiction, Historical Family Drama, Paranormal, Historical Fantasy
Cover Designer: Sarah M. Cradit
Editor: Emily A. Lawrence

Book Synopsis:

Seven Siblings. Seven Years. Seven Spellbinding Novels.

New Orleans. The seven Deschanel siblings live with their long-suffering mother in a historic Garden District mansion. Each of them unique. Each of them born with a gift. In some cases, a gift they wish they could give back.

When August Deschanel died, he left his wife, Irish Colleen, with more than seven children to raise. She inherited a job she was never prepared for: bringing up his heirs in a world she doesn’t understand. She’d never seen true magic, not before marrying into the most prominent—and mysterious—family in New Orleans. Now, she can’t escape it.

Irish Colleen knows a terrible secret. Her youngest, a prophet, has seen a future that is unavoidable: the Deschanels will not leave 1970 without losing one of the seven. She knows only that it will happen, but not when, how… or to whom.

Charles, the playboy heir apparent. Augustus, the family fixer. Colleen, the unfailing pragmatist. Madeline, the bleeding heart. Evangeline, the genius. Maureen, the dreamer. Elizabeth, the tortured one.

One of her children must die, and Irish Colleen can do nothing to stop it.


About Sarah

Sarah is the USA Today bestselling author of the Paranormal Southern Gothic series, The House of Crimson & Clover, born of her combined passion for New Orleans, and the mysterious complexity of human nature. Her work has been described as rich, emotive, and highly dimensional.
An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying obscure subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf’s personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Oregon, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.

 

Storm by Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu – Blog Tour

The first in a series, Storm is a twists-and-turns thriller driven by compelling characters challenged by dangerous forces, both external, internal, and eternal.

Evan Storm had been confronted by his past (an unpleasant one at that) in his dreams, and now in his waking life. He is struggling to reconcile the evil that lurks in his soul. Shadow Hex is his new neighbor, who also fears a dangerous past – her former fiancé who works for the Secret Eye Agency (which is as shadowy and sinister as it sounds). Does Shadow hold the key to Evan’s redemption? Is redemption even possible?

Excerpt:

The old woman leaned over and pulled open the bottom drawer of the rectangular table next to the chair where she placed her diary.

Even though she knew who he was, it took her back a bit when Bruce walked into her room. She could see Bruce was aging well. His hair had started to gray. He was a lot thinner than the last time she saw him. Candice closed the door behind him.

“I wasn’t expecting to see you so soon.”

“Not all your predictions are on point, from what I recall,” Bruce said. He made himself comfortable on the sofa across from Venice, with the coffee table separating them. He unbuttoned his blazer, crossing one leg over the other. “So how’ve you been? What’s new around here?”

“Bruce, it’s really nice seeing you, but you’re here for one of two things. Which one is it?”

“I can’t come and see how you’re doing once in a while? Do I need a reason to be here?” He chuckled.

Venice sighed, knowing with Bruce there was always a reason. “What do you want?”

Bruce kept steady eye contact with her before breaking the tension. “I think it’s time to tell them the truth. They deserve to know what happened, what really happened that day, and I think you would want the same for them.”

A Hunter Within by Anna Applegate – New Release!

Title: A Hunter Within 

Genre: Paranormal Romance 

Author: Anna Applegate

Release Date: July 16th, 2018

 

Synopsis:

My name is Jules Parker, and I’m a Research Scientist. I landed an internship at Falcone Industries, the most prestigious pharmaceutical company in the country, though it’s not what I’d hoped. After all, there’s hardly a fine line between taking a volunteer and shackling someone down before injecting poison into their body. After secretly witnessing that horror, I’m in an uncomfortable situation.

Then, there’s Seeley Ronan. Who is he, you might ask? Well, he’s a Vampire King. And yes, I said vampire. He saved my life, and now we seem to be … connected. He’s sexy, dangerous, and a major distraction, who says Falcone is run by rogue hunters who are harming innocent vampires in a quest for power.

Seeley is desperate to protect his people, and needs my help to do it. But that means turning my back on the only path I’ve ever known. My heart and mind are in a tug-of-war and with my heart quickly becoming his, it’s not likely I’ll be able to deny him.

What I do know is that I’m in way over my head. As long as I can keep it together, we might be able to bring Falcone down from the inside. But, my world is about to change in a big way, and I’m not sure any of us will be ready for what comes next.

The Dociles by Valerie Puri – New Release & Excerpt!

The Dociles by Valerie Puri

Walls are meant to keep the monsters out…

Deep in the forest there is a wall where no wall should be. Behind it live the people of the Commune, the last remnant of human kind.

Jennie Caraway has lived behind the wall her entire life, certain that it protects her and her brother from the lemerons, ravenous undead monsters whose only desire is to kill – and feed.

Jennie’s peaceful existence is shattered when she uncovers a secret organization whose purpose threatens to destroy not only Jennie, but her entire world. The Order has a deadly mission, and they will stop at nothing to see it completed.

Jennie and those closest to her must expose the evil truth before they are killed – or worse.

Exclusive Excerpt

– Sash

Sash smiled as he recalled his transition into adulthood. He’d chosen his own path and proved how useful he could be to the Order. He had been doing this work ever since the day he walked away from the burning remnants of his past life. His technique had been polished over the years. He learned how to control his rage and do less conspicuous work. After all, he couldn’t burn down every building he did a job in just to cover his tracks and make it look like an accident.

Some of his targets were not so lucky as to be killed. What awaited them was something worse. Eleanor Townsend was one such target. His usual sneer crept over his lips as he thought about the hell she would soon be trapped in. She hadn’t screamed when he bagged her, though. Pity, he thought. Sash loved when they screamed.

He reached the end of the long dark tunnel. He stood before a thick steel door with a single, dim light flickering above his head. He made a fist and banged on the cold metal two times. He heard shuffling behind the door, and a strip of metal at eye-level slid away to reveal a small, rectangular window. A set of eyes masked behind tinted, round goggles peered out at him, surveying the load hoisted over his shoulder.

“I’ve got another one for processing,” Sash said.

The metal strip slid back into place covering the tiny window. Sash heard the grinding sound of metal scraping against metal as the gears were engaged to unlock the door. It swung inward to grant him entrance.
