Enjoy!   Sirens in the Night By Michael Bradley Genre: Fiction, Supernatural Thriller Amberjack Publishing Book Description When three corpses are found at a construction site in Philadelphia, homicide detective Samantha Ballard is assigned to investigate the bizarre deaths.

Book Blitz: Between The Notes by Sharon Huss Roat

  Between the Notes by Sharon Huss Roat  Release Date: 06/16/15 Harper Teen 382 pages Summary from Goodreads: When Ivy Emerson’s family loses their house—complete with her beloved piano—the fear of what’s to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn’t one of her single, terrifying performances. It’s her life. And it isn’t pretty. Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as “the wrong side of the tracks.” Hiding the truth from her friends—and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own—seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy’s carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them. As things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. She may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself. Debut author Sharon Huss Roat crafts a charming and timely story of what happens when life as you know it flips completely upside down.   Buy Links: Local Bookseller  I B&N  I  Amazon I  HarperCollins  I  Books-a-Million Book Title Brain Dump: A Top Ten List of Rejected Titles for BETWEEN THE NOTES by...

Book Blitz: Crystallum by Laney McMann

Crystallum Laney McMann (Primordial Principles #1) Published by: Booktrope Publishing Publication date: October 25th 2015 Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Kadence Sparrow wasn’t born a devil’s child—she was turned into one. Now, she’s hiding from the truth, and running for her life. For years, Kade’s true nature has lurked behind an illusion, so when her dad gets another job transfer, she knows the drill: no close friends, no boyfriends, and most importantly: don’t expose what she is. Ever. Keeping secrets is easy. Lies are second nature. So is the loneliness—and the fear, but when the Shadows attack, and Kade meets Cole Spires, she could expose everything she’s trying to hide. As one of the Celestial Children, Cole lives by an oath: defend the Ward, protect the Primordial race, guard the gateways, and stick to his own. Everything else is a distraction, and besides, he’s lost enough. Cole’s job is clear, and no one his age does it better. So, when he meets Kade in a club downtown, he assumes she just wants his attention. Most girls do, but Cole soon realizes … Kade isn’t like most girls. The children of heaven and hell are living among us, fighting an age-old war. And falling for someone from the opposition is not an option. But a chance encounter between Kade and Cole will blur the rules, as Kade’s journey to keep...
