The Awesome Adventure of Kill the Beast ~ and a giveaway!

You know those stories that keep you up late at night reading? The ones with fantastic heroines, lush descriptions, and exciting adventures?

If you’re in the mood for such a story, look no further.

Michele Israel Harper has done it again!

In Kill the Beast, an imaginative retelling of familiar fairy tales, Michele weaves a wonderful world of monsters, mademoiselles, castles, and crossbows.

Set in a long-ago France, this book captures some of the best elements of Beauty and the Beast (the enchantment! The food! The rose!) as well as manages to turn Little Red Riding Hood into a kick-butt heroine who is anything but a damsel in distress.

Want more? Of course you do!

Ro remembers the castle before. Before the gates closed. Before silence overtook the kingdom. Before the castle disappeared. Now it shimmers to life one night a year, seen by her alone.

Once a lady, now a huntress, Ro does what it takes to survive—just like the rest of the kingdom plunged into despair never before known. But a beast has overtaken the castle. A beast that killed the prince and holds the castle and kingdom captive in his cruel power. A beast Ro has been hired to kill. Thankful the mystery of the prince’s disappearance has been solved, furious the magical creature has killed her hero, Ro eagerly accepts the job to end him. But things are not as they seem.

Trapped in the castle, a prisoner alongside the beast, Ro wonders what she should fear most: the beast, the magic that holds them both captive, or the one who hired her to kill the beast.

Doesn’t that sound intriguing? Now check out this cover:

What I liked about this tale was the smattering of French phrases scattered here and there to lend authenticity, the mouth-watering descriptions of the food, the detailed world-building which made me picture the Beast’s castle and surrounding countryside, the backstory that left me begging for more, and the unexpected twist at the end.

But most of all, I loved the heroine, Ro. She is feisty and fierce yet somehow vulnerable at the same time. I loved her loyalty to her family, especially her sister, and how she would do anything to protect her.

I enjoyed it soooo much, I’ve giving you a chance to own your very own copy! I’ve got a prize pack for one lucky reader including a paperback version of Kill the Beast, some yummy chocolate all the way from New Zealand, and a book cozy featuring a forest scene complete with foxes, hedgehogs, and rabbits.

The Amazing Aesthetics of Renegade Skyfarer

Today author RJ Metcalf celebrates the release of her brand new book, Renegade Skyfarer.

Renegade Skyfarer Blog Tour Banner.jpg

She’s got a heap of beautiful aesthetics for us to ogle, so let’s jump in, shall we? Take it away RJ!


It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a dear friend of mine recently got me into the whole aesthetics thing, and I’m afraid to say, I am hooked. So, it may be considered cheating to some, but I’m going to share a bit of my characters via aesthetics, because, really now, who doesn’t love them? And with that, I must also note that I am not skilled in such gorgeous graphics, and these were all made by the lovely LoriAnn Weldon of Magpie Designs, Ltd. ^_^

Ben

Meet Ben Dubray, an amnesiac who gets rescued by the crew of the airship, the Sapphire. He can’t remember anything beyond his name that’s listed on his metal necklace, but throughout Renegade Skyfarer, bits and pieces of memory will flash into mind, and he’ll start piecing the puzzle together. During all that, the Sapphire mechanic and daughter of the airship captain, Jade Stohner, befriends him and does what she can to encourage him in this strange new world.

Jade (1).png

Spunky and passionate about life, Jade doesn’t know that life is about to drastically change once her father reveals a secret he’s been keeping all her life. Caught between her own plans for her life and her father’s ideas for her life, she’s going to have to find a dark corner of the Sapphire to figure out what she’s going to do. But what she and her childhood best friend, Krista, plan, may not match up to what Jade’s father, Slate, wants.

Slate (1).png

Slate, the captain that carries the world on his shoulders. Burdened by choices he made in his youth, burdened with secrets, burdened with the knowledge that if he fails in his quest to restore the barrier, all he holds dear could die, Slate is a man on a mission. He doesn’t always handle the stress well–in fact, he often doesn’t–but he owes up to what he needs to do, and he’s the man to see it done. Whether it be pompous lords, bandits, or even a crazed berserker, Slate will give it everything he’s got to right his wrongs.

Blade (1).png

Not all appearances are as they seem when it comes to a berserker. Blade has his own mission and his own goals, and he will do all he can to bring Slate’s world crashing around him, in flames and blood and death, as only Slate deserves.

The adventure won’t end until at least one person fulfills their goal–while the other worlds burn.


And how about a little teaser to give us a better idea of the storyline?

The airship crew saved Ben’s life from a dragon, of all things.

When Ben wakes up, he has no memory of his family, his home, or how he got to this strange world. All he knows is what his new crew members tell him: the magical Barrier that protects their land is weakening. Unless they find the artifact that can repair it, all of Terrene will be destroyed and enslaved by the enemies beyond.

But when Ben suspects that danger may lurk closer than dragons or sky pirates, he has to decide: stay and fight with the airship crew, or focus on regaining his lost memory? If he leaves, he risks losing his newfound friends–but if he stays, he might never return home.

Welcome to Terrene–where dragons exist, the past haunts, and magic is no myth.

Welcome aboard the Sapphire.

Want a Closer Look? Resilience

Visual posts are my favourite type of posts to do for blog tours. I just love taking a behind-the-scenes peek at pictures that inspired the story or give me a hint at what’s inside.

Resilience Blog Tour

Today, I’m featuring Amy Brock McNew’s third book in the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles, Resilience.

First, a close-up of that stunning cover.

And some back cover copy to get you excited about the story:

The fiercest warriors emerge from the most brutal storms.

Liz and Ryland Vaughn have fought hard to survive every threat that’s risen against them. But nothing they’ve faced compares to the battle to come.

As they settle in to married life, all seems perfect and quiet. Too quiet. Being a warrior doesn’t allow for peace.

Then one vicious moment throws their world into upheaval and rips their hearts to shreds.

Wanting to get away from it all, they accept a mission to New Orleans to assist fellow warriors. Ryland hopes the time away will repair the rift between them, but the chasm only widens as they face an enemy so subtly horrific, they don’t even know they’re falling.

As they descend into darkness, Liz’s past once again rears its ugly head.

This time, it takes Ryland along for the ride.

Can Liz and Ryland undo the damage to their marriage and hang on to their faith while completing their mission? Or will they fall to temptation and lose everything they’ve fought so hard for?

Now…for the main event! Here are some images just for you!

Every story needs its hero.

And it’s villain.

A Visual Peek at the The Story Peddler

The Story Peddler Blog Tour Banner.jpg

Another blog tour, another fabulous story!

Today I get to spotlight The Story Peddler, the latest release from award-winning author and editor, Lindsay A. Franklin.

She compiled a fantastic visual display of images and text for you and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


Tanwen

Ho, fellow story-lovers! It’s me, Tanwen, but you can call me Tannie. I’m a story peddler by trade, and that’s how I put food on the table since I moved out of Farmer and Ma-Bradwir’s house some years ago. They were kind to take me in, but a girl’s got to find her own way at some point, don’t you think?

Tir.jpg

Ah, the Eastern Peninsula of Tir. Our little scrap of farming countryside. This is at the edge of our village, Pembrone. Doesn’t look like much, does it? That’s because it’s not. A burp of a town, my mentor Riwor says. She’s not wrong.

Brac

Aw, Tannie. Come on, now. You make it sound so…ugly. Pokey. Dull. That ain’t fair. Pembrone is the best spot in all Tir! It’s our home, after all.

*sigh* That’s Brac Bo-Bradwir—best friend, constant nuisance…would-be suitor. *double sigh* Brac, this is my tour. Can’t you ever mind your own onions?

All right, I’ll humor Brac and show you my cottage. It may be the only part of Pembrone I don’t despise.

home.jpg

 

home2.jpg

It was my mother’s family home once. I wish I could have known her, but since that wasn’t in the stars for me, this is second-best. I can sleep in the room where she slept. I can cook in the kitchen where she cooked. Plus, it’s right down the lane from the Bradwir stead. The cottage is getting a little shabby these days, but at least it’s a warm place to return to after a long peddling tour.

Do you want to see the actual best part of Tir? Whatever Brac says, it’s definitely not Pembrone. It’s Urian, the capital city! Now, I’ve never been there myself, but one day I’m going to live here in the palace and serve the king as his Royal Storyteller. I just have to get King Gareth to notice me somehow…

castle.jpg

If I could only make it to Royal Storyteller, I’d finally be someone, you know? I’d no longer be the parentless urchin, fighting for every scrap of food, handing over most of my earnings to Riwor. I’d be Tanwen En-Yestin, faithful servant to the king and honored guest at his court. Imagine—me at court. Brac doesn’t think I’ll make it, but mark me. I’ll show him. I just have to stick to telling the crown-approved stories and keep making those babies crystallize clear as glass, and eventually I’ll get there. Sure, sometimes the storytelling gift is a little…wild. But as long as I practice those crowned stories like Riwor taught me, what could possibly go wrong?

Cover Reveal for The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword by Tabitha Caplinger

I got a sneak peek of the cover of Tabitha Caplinger’s final book in The Chronicle of the Three trilogy just before Christmas.

Then I had to sit on it.

For.

Two.

Whole.

Weeks.

Now I can FINALLY share.

 

.

.

.

Here it is!

edensword coffee

Isn’t it it awesome?!?

Here’s what it’s about:

The final showdown is fast approaching, and a grief-stricken Zoe is forced to count the cost of her destiny. As the losses mount, her strength wanes.

Even if the Chosen find the Eden Sword in time, will Zoe be strong enough to wield it? Will she be able to stand against the darkness as the promised Daughter of the ancient prophecy? Or will she be consumed by the fear of her nightmares becoming real?

Fear or faith?

Even the Chosen must choose.

In this final installment of The Chronicle of the Three, light and darkness collide as Zoe discovers there is more than one battlefield in this war.

Eeep! That sounds so exciting! To make it even better, the author is hosting a giveaway featuring the first two books in the trilogy, some book swag and Amazon gift cards, so follow the link to enter.4.jpg

You can also go to her website and subscribe to her newsletter to get a free sample of book 1, Bloodline, as well as be among the first to find out more Eden Sword release news and updates. And if you want to purchase the first two books or contact Tabitha about a speaking engagement, that’s the place to go, too.

Tabitha Caplinger is a wife, mom, youth pastor and professed TV addict. It’s seriously a problem but she doesn’t plan on getting help anytime soon. Mostly because she loves the stories. She can’t help but get lost in the worlds created and invested in the lives of the characters. She brings that same passion for the story to her own writing. Aside from writing and watching TV, Tabitha can be found singing off key and dancing in the kitchen or car with her two adorably sassy daughters and awesome husband who she thinks is kind of cute.

16 Breathtaking Reasons to Love ‘Ending Fear’

I’m thrilled to kick off the blog tour for fellow speculative author, Deanna Fugett. Her debut YA dystopian, Ending Fear, is finally here!

I remember critiquing her story on the main ACFW critique group years ago, Scribes, and in just a few short days, I get to hold a beautiful copy in my hands.

giphy (13).gif

Until then, I’ll have to content myself with my Kindle copy (not quite the same) as well as devouring all the blog posts after mine.

I’m going to her Facebook party July 20th too! There will be heaps of prizes and a good time had by all! Don’t miss it!

–> –> party here! <– <–

And now, Deanna gets to introduce some inspiring pictures and graphics (16 of ’em 😉 ) that give some background to Ending Fear as well as giving you, dear reader, an opportunity to connect with this talented author and win yourself some lovely book swag.


Here are some cool pictures telling a little bit about my story Ending Fear. I had fun making and finding these, and I hope you enjoy them and they make you a bit more excited about my debut novel coming out July 18th.Defeated.png

Fear is a slave. A slave to her family who show her no compassion. A slave to the Uppers who force the Downers to do their bidding with the threat of laser guns in the hands of the Sentinels. She’s strong, but you can only push a person so far.EF meme.png

When Fear finds a new family, they treat her with kindness. Something she’s never experienced. She’s not quite sure how to deal with it.The triplets.jpgThese three may look alike as far as the red hair goes, but their personalities couldn’t be more different.

I can’t wait for you to meet them on the pages. Especially Trouble. He’s named that for a reason.

Ending Fear.png

The harems are not a place anyone wants to end up. When Fear’s little sister is taken there, she must make a choice. Rescue the girl at the risk of death, or let her fear take over?


Here’s a behind the scenes look at the characters of Ending Fear as imagined by author, Deanna Fugett:

Fear Fear. She’s my MC. She’s pretty awesome. At least I like to think so.

 

CourageCourage. He’s smart, and a bit overconfident because of it.

 

HateHate. He’s the antagonist of the story. Tortured soul and evil go hand in hand.

 

CharityCharity. The Upper servant who takes Fear, Courage and Trouble under her wing.

 

TroubleTrouble. His name says it all. Biggest flirt ever. You can’t help but love him though.

 

ManlyManly. He’s the dreamboat. Hehehe. Come on now, every YA has to have one. It’s a rule, you know. 😉

 

MelodyMelody. She’s the friend. She’s a bit serious at times, but she’s kind.

 

HarmonyHarmony. The snob of the group. If she’s not horseback riding you can find her doing her hair or nails. Or possibly criticizing someone.

 

HappyHappy. Never short of spunk, this little one can sass you and still make you fall in love with her. She’s got talent.

 

FaithfulFaithful. Rotten in the kitchen. Really good at whining.


To further whet your appetite…check out the back cover copy:

Fourteen-year-old Fear learns she was a parachute baby, dumped over the edge of the Gliding Lands as an infant. Fascinated by the floating cities in the sky before, now she’s desperate for answers. But a slave isn’t likely to get those answers.

When her abusive Downer family throws her from their hovel, Fear takes refuge with a family who shows her love for the first time. Surely they can’t be trusted. Years of abuse has taught her that.

Then her brother discovers where she’s hiding and tries to kidnap her. Fear will never let him touch her again. Her new family conceals her at The Fallen, a ranch that hides parachute babies from the Uppers who discarded them.

Just as she’s beginning to embrace yet another home, Fear’s new little sister, Happy, is kidnapped and taken to the Uppers’ temple harem. Fear must go against her namesake, find a working hoverpod, and journey to the dreaded Gliding Lands before the little girl’s innocence is ripped from her forever.

Can she save Happy in time?

And will she find answers to the burning question of why anyone would throw her away?


Deanna’s also looking for people to join her street team!

Street Team.png

I would love some more Dorks to join my street team. If you love YA dystopia and/or want to help promote my books, join the rest of us Dorks on my street team by signing up here. I will love you forever and always!
