Top Ten Tuesday: Things On My Reading Wishlist



Top Ten Tuesday is a great meme created by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish that combines top ten lists and books. She’s come up with a great list of weekly discussion topics and I hope you’ll join in the discussion by commenting on this post or some of the other ones (you can find the list of participating blogs in this week's Top Ten Tuesday Post on her site).

This week’s topic is Top Ten Things On My Reading Wishlist (things I wish more authors wrote about).

I do not have any trouble finding books. There are a lot of books in the world. A lot of really good books. So, this topic was a little hard for me this week, or, at least, I thought it was until I sat down and started writing. Then I realized I seem to have a reservoir of unfulfilled longing within me that I was unaware of :-) Despite that, though, I was only able to come up with eight items for my list this week.

Hereafter Online Launch Party

Hereafter Release
Hereafter is once more running free in the wild, and to celebrate, I'm throwing an online launch party - and everybody is invited! There are going to be giveaways - hosted by celebrity guest authors - going on all day long, I'll be answering questions from readers, and cover artist Shelby Robinson will also stop by to take part in a Q&A. So come on by and lift a glass of (virtual) champagne in honor of Hereafter's release!

How to attend:

1. Log in to Facebook and navigate to the party's event page

Enter as many contests/giveaways as you like - just read the instructional post at the top of each thread and then jump into the conversation.

DARK PARADISE

July 1, 2014
Grand Central Publishing/ Forever Yours


BOOK BLURB:


DARK LEGACY

Mala LaCroix has spent her whole life trying to escape her destiny. As the last in a long line of “witch women,” she rejects the notion of spirits and hoodoo and instead does her best to blend in. But when she finds a dead body floating in the bayou behind her house, Mala taps into powers she never knew she had. She’s haunted by visions of the dead girl, demanding justice and vengeance.

DEADLY SECRETS

Landry Prince has always had a crush on Mala, but when Mala discovers his sister, murdered and marked in some sort of Satanic ritual, he starts to wonder if all the rumors about the LaCroix family are true. Yet after Mala uses her connection to the spirit world to identify his sister’s killer, he starts to form his own bond to her . . . a very physical one. As they move closer to each other and closer to the truth, Mala and Landry must risk everything—their families, their love, and even their lives.

ANGIE SANDRO:

Bio:


Angie Sandro was born at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri. Within six weeks, she began the first of eleven relocations throughout the United States, Spain, and Guam before the age of eighteen.

Friends were left behind. The only constants in her life were her family and the books she shipped wherever she went. Traveling the world inspired her imagination and allowed her to create her own imaginary friends. Visits to her father's family in Louisiana inspired this story.

Angie now lives in Northern California with her husband, two children, and an overweight Labrador

Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Resolutions



Top Ten Tuesday is a great meme created by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish that combines top ten lists and books. She’s come up with a great list of weekly discussion topics and I hope you’ll join in the discussion by commenting on this post or some of the other ones (you can find the list of participating blogs in this week's Top Ten Tuesday post on her site).

This week’s topic is Top Ten Goals/Resolutions for 2014.

Let me start by saying that I don’t make resolutions…the universe and my brain instantly sabotage me as soon as I do. I resolve to lose weight and suddenly all I crave is junk food and/or life gets insanely busy and I can’t get to the grocery store to buy healthy food. I resolve to exercise more and I suddenly need knee or foot surgery. That sort of thing.

So, having said that, here are my goals for 2014, which I WILL accomplish if the universe stays out of my way :-)
