It has been fifteen hundred years since the solar flare devastation of the Global Catastrophe. Due to the radioactivity in the harvesting fields, society dismisses its defective children as nothing more than flawed products of the malfunctioned seeds in the field.

But Lyratelle, a hyper-observant musical prodigy, believes these “defects” are intelligent, particularly her own sibling, the youngest child of her impervious mother. Abandoning her dream career, Lyratelle climbs the bureaucratic ladder to run the Defect Research Center, where she can safeguard the child.

With an underground team of women who share her uncertainties, Lyratelle unearths the Old History truth that womankind’s survival actually hinges on the existence of these defects.

When General Sarah Love, the city’s most powerful advocate against the defects, detects Lyratelle’s sympathy toward the creatures, she threatens the life of Lyratelle’s sibling.

Now Lyratelle’s desperate attempt to save this child endangers everyone she loves—her team, her family, even the existence of the defects themselves.

I am organizing a fun tour for this author. Nicole’s tour will run from April 5th through April 30th. The posts will consist of reviews, guest posts, interviews, features, and excerpts. There will also be a tour-wide giveaway. Review copies will be available in eBook formats and some paperback. An HTML post will be provided for bloggers’ convenience. You can sign up for the tour HERE.

As the third of eight siblings, Nicole has always been surrounded by people. Among her immediate family are spoken seven languages. Her favorite thing is hearing her nieces and nephews speak French, Tongan, or Mandarin. It’s no surprise she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Languages, as language is one of her greatest passions, topped only by music and Beat Saber.

Nicole minored in Women Studies and continues to take a particular interest in both women’s history and their individual stories. She’s grateful for her ancestors and other women who paved the way for her to pursue her dream of publishing stories and strives to create new avenues for the coming generations to pursue their dreams.

Though she’s lived-in various states in the U.S. and Brazil, Nicole considers Utah “home base” and continuously finds herself returning, even when previous moves were intended to be permanent. She attributes her love of Utah to the beauty of the Wasatch Mountains and the incredible people who make it feel like home, even when she’s been away for long periods of time. Recently, however, after visiting her sister’s family overseas, she’s been dreaming of a quiet beach house in Taiwan.

Lark and the Loon Book Tour Feb. 22 – March 5 & April 19 – April 30

Author Rhiannon Gelston will be on tour Feb. 22nd through March 5th and April 19th through April 30th with MC Book Tours featuring her book, LARK AND THE LOON, released by WiDo Publishing.

LARK AND THE LOON
by Rhiannon Gelston

◊ Genre: Memoir with a Twist
◊ Publisher: WiDo Publishing (July 17, 2020)
◊ Print & eBooks
◊ Paperback: 284 pages
◊ ISBN-10: 1947966251
◊ ISBN-13: 978-1947966253

Lark and the Loon follows the adventures of a tentative boy named Lark, as he is catapulted out of all that he knows, into a courageous journey beyond his wildest imagination. 
 
Upon receiving a special gift from his Gramps, Lark embarks on a reflective journey of self-discovery as the innovative story weaves the true-life memoir of his mother (the author) in with a fantastical journey. With some special new-found friends, Lark travels back and forth from a symbolic tree to his mother’s true memories of life and death moments, and simple moments, found everywhere from wild Africa to their very own living room. Lark and his friends must ascend this tree and gain the important life lessons offered along the way if they ever hope to find their way out. Within this journey, Lark finds these lessons, and ultimately himself, in the space between imagination and truth in this wild tale.  
 
The story explores friendships, philosophies, and everyday challenges and joys, both from a child’s perspective and from a parent’s perspective. This memoir with a twist results in a coming of age story that ultimately leads to a new understanding of self, others, and the world that surrounds us.
 
 
LARK AND THE LOON is available at AMAZONBarnes & Noble * WiDo Publishing
Also, be sure to add it to your TBR List on Goodreads.

Triumph Over Fear by Elaine M. Edwards Book Blast

TRIUMPH OVER FEAR
A Psychological and Spiritual Journey
by Elaine M. Edwards

* Paperback: 177 pages
* Publisher: Independently published
* Language: English
* ISBN-10: 1795460911
* ISBN-13: 978-1795460910

Triumph Over Fears offers hope and insight for anyone held back by difficult emotions that prevent them from living up to their potential and experiencing joy. Part memoir, part psychology lesson, and part metaphysical wisdom, it is an eclectic, inspiring personal story of someone who went from agoraphobic, afraid to go out in public, to a real adventurer and world traveler.

The 84-year-old author draws from her personal experience as well as the many people she has known, worked with and helped over the years, including decades of working with students, colleagues, family, and friends, and most of all herself. She delves deeply into the sense of existential guilt that pervades the human condition and offers guidance on how to overcome this.

Her journey is unique, but much of what she has learned is universal. At its core, it is a story of hope. At its core, it is a story of hope and a testament that transformation truly is possible. Because of its eclectic mix of the psychological and the spiritual most anyone will find some nugget of gold or gem of truth that speaks to them. Some of the concepts might seem very familiar, and other ones might be completely new to readers.

The author encourages those who are seeking freedom from fear to walk with her on her journey and let her share with you how she went from being very frightened and very limited in her life, to very confident and very brave.

TRIUMPH OVER FEAR can be purchased at Amazon.

Murder, Just Because by Yolanda Renee

MURDER, JUST BECAUSE
by Yolanda  Renée

◊ Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense
◊ Publisher: Yolanda Renee
◊ Series: Detective Quaid Mysteries
◊ Paperback: 291 pages
◊ Print & eBooks
◊ ISBN-10: 0985820632
◊ ISBN-13: 978-0985820633
◊ Contains explicit sex & graphic violence
“While this book does contain explicit sexual language and graphic violence, it could easily be taken from the daily headlines. The content is plausible and realistic as we look at the world around us. The events in the book are not overly done, but give a pragmatic look at the terrifying actions killers can and sometimes do take.”

It was a matter of beginner’s luck, but rookie detective Steven Quaid’s career and reputation as an elite investigator skyrocketed when he captured one of the most sadistic serial killers in Alaskan history: Stowy Jenkins, AKA the Snowman. But that was ten years ago.

And now…Jenkins is back. Escaped from prison and on the move, his bloodlust is stronger than ever, and his methods of torture are even more horrifying than before. As his bloody rampage continues and the number of mutilated bodies mounts, terrified Alaskans increasingly doubt Quaid’s ability to catch the killer again. The detective’s reputation is on the line, and he’s going to need a lot more than luck, because this time, Jenkins is driven by more than the thrill of a random kill.

This time, it’s more personal. He’s out for revenge…and his ultimate target is Quaid. In a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, Jenkins starts picking off the people in Quaid’s life…slowly, gradually tightening his circle of corpses and drawing ever closer to the most important person in Quaid’s life…his wife. Can Quaid do the impossible again? Can he outmaneuver the killer, or has the detective’s luck finally run out?

Not Guilty by C. Lee McKenzie

Blog Tour: Not Guilty by C. Lee McKenzie


Not Guilty
C. Lee McKenzie
Publication Date: October 25, 2019
Genre: Young Adult

          A blood-smeared knife. One young man’s word against another. A lifetime dream crushed.
          The evidence points to Devon Carlyle. He was there when it happened. Everyone knows he had it in for Renzo Costa. And Costa says Devon was the one. In the judge’s rap of a gavel, Devon’s found guilty of assault. The star of the Oceanside High’s basketball team loses his shot at the one thing he’s worked so hard for—the championship game where college scouts could see how good he is.
          Now he makes his great shots in Juvenile Hall with kids far different from those that have always been in his life.
          Angry? Hell, yes.
          He’s bent on finding who did the crime. He’s bent on making them pay because he’s Not Guilty.
          But can he prove it?
A blog tour for Not Guilty by C. Lee McKenzie, a young readers’ adventure is underway and will run from October 28th 1st to November 1st, 2019. Posts will consist of reviews, guest posts, interviews, and excerpts. There is also a tour-wide giveaway.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Author C. Lee McKenzie

C. Lee McKenzie has a background in Linguistics and Inter-Cultural Communication, but these days her greatest passion is writing for young readers. She has published five young adult novels: Sliding on the Edge, The Princess of Las Pulgas, Double Negative, and Sudden Secrets. Not Guilty is her most recent one.

          Sometimes she likes to jump into the world of the fantastic and when she does, she writes for the middle-grade reader. Some Very Messy Medieval Magick is the third book in the time-travel adventures of Pete and Weasel, with Alligators Overhead and The Great Time Lock Disaster being the first two. Sign of the Green Dragon, a stand-alone, takes the reader into ancient Chinese dragon myths and a quest for treasure.
          When she’s not writing she’s hiking or traveling or practicing yoga or asking a lot of questions about things she still doesn’t understand. You can connect her on FacebookTwitterInstagram and at her Website
