The Cover Reveal For Laura Oliva’s What The Body Needs!

26 Aug

Hi All!

So here is the second post which I warned you about.

This one is all about my drinking, swearing, fun on the outside, tough on the inside friend Laura Oliva.

Here’s how she describes her writing:

I write tender love stories about tough people. You won’t find any candy-coating here. The men are men, the women are badass, the dirt is dirty, the whiskey is strong. Things aren’t always roses and sunshine.

But sometimes life’s more fun that way.

I quoted this from her blog Writing In The Night.

She has finished writing her second novel, and received the cover art for it a couple days ago.

Laura is super excited about it, and couldn’t wait another week to get it out there for all her fans to see.

Here it is!

What The Body Needs By Laura Oliva

What The Body Needs
By Laura Oliva

And the blurb! Don’t forget to read the blurb:

Jak O’Mara is a survivor.

 

She’s survived in her father’s construction company.  She’s survived in the boxing ring.  And she survived the brutal attack that left her permanently scarred.

 

For the last five years, she’s tried to convince everyone -including herself- she’s no victim.  But with the apparent return of her unknown assailant, the life she’s rebuilt crumbles overnight.

 

Ex-cop Marcus Cutter has his own scars, they just don’t show.  Following the violent death of his younger sister, he fled his old life in disgrace.  After almost six years, “rock-bottom” feels a lot like home.

 

As Jak’s new bodyguard, Marcus is forced to return to the city -and the memories- he’s tried to forget.  All he wants is to do his job, but Jak isn’t what he expects.  When he’s with her, he finally feels something besides pain.

 

When the danger escalates, Jak decides it’s time to take matters into her own hands.  She’s going to find who’s after her, no matter the cost.  Marcus knows he has to protect the woman who’s made his life mean something again.  But how do you protect someone who’s convinced they have nothing left to lose?

Laura is all over the internet.

You can find her on Twitter: @writermama

You can also visit her book page on her site here.

Her Facebook is here.

And you can get her first book here. It’s currently available for $1.99 in e-book form only. So far, anyway.  🙂

I think she’s also on pintrest and something else, but my poor old computer is telling me it’s had enough of looking up social sites today so you’re on your own there.

I enjoyed All That Glitters, and I can’t wait until What The Body Needs is also in my Kindle PC (and on my phone. Cause, really, you never know when that grocery check-out line will last more than two and a half minutes. lol).

The Cover Reveal For Elisabeth Wheatley’s The Chalice Of Malvron!!!

14 Jun
Janir3 cover draft006-1

A princess with no recollection of the past eight years. War on the horizon.

Who to trust? Who to save?

Sixteen-year-old Janir Caersynn Argetallam wakes, sore and disoriented in the home city of her people, surrounded by relatives who seem concerned for her well-being. As she tries to recover, the Argetallams’ allies, the Stlavish, prepare to unleash a magical relic of untold power against the Argetallams’ age-old enemies, the Brevians. Janir watches silently from the sidelines until she meets a warrior elf and a strange wizard-boy who claim to know her and make her feel…confused. They claim that everything she’s been told is a lie, that her memories were stolen at the command of her father, the Lord Argetallam. As the eve of Brevia’s destruction draws closer, Janir finds herself with the power to stop the Stlavish. Conflicted and confused, she must decide whether she will allow Brevia to be conquered or if she will betray her father and destroy the relic—the Chalice of Malvron…

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can’t wait to get my eyes on it. 🙂
Only problem is I kinda promised Lonnie that I would read the other ebooks in my ‘pile’ before getting anything new. So as soon as this is out I need one of y’all to read it and tell me that it’s as good as I think it is. OK??? Please?!?
.

Time to tell you about the raffle!

Elisabeth has set up an awesome array of prizes. First of which is a $25 gift card to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble. The other 8 winners will receive one of 8 books (some ebooks, some paperback).
Good Luck!!!

Raising Kids 1930s Cartoon Style, And An Announcement!

*        *        *

Back in the days when cartoons weren’t for little kids. 🙂

&        &        &

  A while ago I came across a nice young writer named Elisabeth Wheatley. Out of curiosity (and because the cover intrigued me) I bought one of her novella’s titled Fanged Princess. Lonnie actually finished it before I did. He read it straight through, and can’t wait for the next installment. I wasn’t sure what to expect and was more than pleasantly surprised when I reached the end and kept trying to turn the Kindle page for more!  🙂 It was a thrilling ride of a book, and I have to say that I look forward to reading more of her works.

She is also a fellow wordpress blogger. Click here to see her blog!

So it is with great pleasure that I now say that I will be one of the bloggers helping with the cover reveal for Elisabeth Wheatley’s latest book.  There will also be a giveaway!!!

The great reveal is scheduled for the 14th of this month.

So stay tuned!!!
