Guest Post by Teri Harman and #Giveaway

 


Authors I Can’t Write Without” by Teri Harman

I am a story addict. I am addicted to reading. It is my love of reading that helped shape my love of writing. It’s symbiotic in some ways: I suck all the greatness from my favorite writers, nourishing my ability to put words on the page.

These are some of the authors that inspire me, that make me want to try harder in my writing. That make me better.

1. Roald Dahl
Such imagination! Roald Dahl taught me to twist and turn the normal into the bizarre. To stretch my creativity to mold ideas into stories that feel fresh and yet familiar in all the right ways. Favorite titles: ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ ‘Matilda,’ and ‘Tales of the Unexpected.’

2. Kate Morton
Beautiful, intoxicating words. Kate Morton’s writing is so amazing – her descriptions, her solid plots, her gothic sense of place. I devour her books and always want to run to the computer when I’m done. Favorite titles: ‘The Forgotten Garden,’ and ‘The Secret Keeper.’

3. Sarah Addison Allen
Sarah does steamy romance and magic realism so well. Her books are magical and her characters authentic. I love her stories and want mine to be as absorbing. Favorite titles: ‘The Sugar Queen,’ and ‘Garden Spells.’

4. Sue Monk Kidd
The queen of emotional narratives that you never forget. I want to write as honest and deep as Sue does. She captures characters and how they feel in every situation so perfectly. That is not easy. Favorite titles: ‘The Secret Life of Bees’ and ‘The Invention of Wings.’

Which authors inspire you?

Running low on hope and options to find the missing children, Max turns to his friends for help. But even they aren't enough. Forced to face the darkness of his own past, Max forges an alliance with the least likely ally of all. An enemy whose cruelty was almost his end, and haunts him still.

(REVIEW)

"neo-Nazi vampires running a child slavery ring." - Does that grab your attention? It did mine. I am always looking for something different and this read was definitely one of those. This detective novel has a flawed main character with true care for others at his heart. Max suffers from nightmares, he's trying to keep a steady relationship even though he has a job that has long odd hours and full of stress.

When investigating a missing child case, the reader is introduced to a determined character who has only the care and safety of children as his goal. Taking it more seriously than previous workers on the job. Max seeks out the answers to one particular missing child's case and find a connection between vampires, drugs and a church coverup going on.

He will give up at nothing, putting himself not only in danger, but in the middle of the attack on the vampires. It is a mix of procedural work and supernatural thriller. He goes above and beyond his job, cares deeply about what happens to the children and his friends.

I enjoyed the read, it's a detective story with the paranormal element that I love -vampires. It is very well written, engrossing and sexy.

synopsis

Stalked by evil…

Psychic Rori Austin’s life is over. She just doesn’t know it yet. Plagued by recurring nightmares and terrifying fugues, she’s hanging on by a thread.

badge-addtogoodreads

excerpt

“HEY, YOU’RE AWAKE.” Moving slowly so he wouldn’t scare her, Dec leaned into her field of vision from a chair next to the bed.

His little mystery woman had been out for hours. Just now easing awake, she was disoriented and groggy. Intending to comfort her, he wrapped his fingers around her cold hand. Flinching like he’d shocked her, she jerked her hand away with a gasp.

“Sorry, sweetheart.”

Oops. He needed to dial it back some. Their saol did that to people if they didn’t rein it in before contact. She scooted against the headboard, eyes wide with fear and confusion. As they darted around the room, he got a good look at them. Cognac? No. Bourbon. Definitely bourbon. Her eyes were the shade of top shelf Kentucky bourbon. Tilted up at the corners, heavily lashed, with thick black rings around her pupils, they were stunning. Cheetah eyes. Beautiful and hypnotic. Exotic. He couldn’t look away. For the first time ever, he was speechless.
His eyes drifted over the rest of her face, taking in the pallor and dark circles. She frowned, shielding herself with the sheet as if it would protect her. Nothing could protect her from him. He could do anything he wanted. But he wouldn’t. He didn’t have it in him. Her vulnerability called to the warrior in him. He sensed her emotions as easily as he read her expression. She was scared, confused, and desperately trying to remember how she’d gotten here. He should say something… anything. He had a pretty speech all planned out until she opened her eyes and destroyed his ability to think.

Dark Redemption by Angie Sandro BLITZ!


 
a Rafflecopter giveaway

About DARK REDEMPTION
Deep in the Louisiana bayou, Mala LaCroix cannot escape the mysterious things she's seen. Haunted by her otherworldly past, she only wants to hide her special abilities and care for the man she's come to love. But the dark swamp she calls home holds more than just Mala's secrets, for a killer is leaving behind ghosts trapped between worlds, hungry for vengeance . . . Landry knows Mala could never turn her back on those in need. It's part of what attracts him to her. But now that he's wrestling with his own demons-and losing-he fears that just being near the woman he loves endangers her life. And that traps him in a terrible dilemma: leave Mala alone to catch a murderer by herself or stay close-and risk entangling her in the brutal battle for his very soul.





About Angie Sandro
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.

Excerpt
 
 
We pull into the hospital parking lot. None of us move from our seats. We each dread what’s coming for different reasons. Tension radiates from Mala in waves strong enough to raise the hairs on my arms when she clutches my hand. She’s never been comfortable in hospitals, and now it’s worse.
Ghosts flock to her like she’s got a homing beacon attached to her forehead. I don’t get hit with the mojo quite as bad. I see the residual spirits. We’ve been practicing blocking them when we train with Ferdinand. Hopefully our shielding will withstand the oncoming barrage or we’ll be ready to punch someone in the face before we find Pepper.
“Let’s get this over with.” I release her hand and open the door. She waits until I come around to help her out rather than making the long jump to the ground. Her arms wrap around my neck, and I hold her close, inhaling. Her scent wraps around my body. She presses her nose into the side of my neck. Her warm breath blows across my skin, and my gut tightens when she presses a kiss to the underside of my jaw.
“Hold on to me, Landry,” she whispers. “Don’t let them get me.”
“I’ve got you. Always.”
Her lips press against mine. The taste of her mouth with each pulse of her tongue is like honey and melted butter. The tension in my muscles relax as the kiss deepens. My worries fade, leaving a golden brown haze in their place.
Finally, she pulls back with a slow inhale and whispers, “No matter how bad things feel, one kiss from you puts everything back into perspective.”
“Too bad about our audience. If we were alone, I’d really rock your perspective.” I give her a quick dip with a neck nuzzle that leaves her giggling, then set her on her feet. Sophia sticks her head out the open door. “I’m beat. I’m going to take a nap while you take care of business.”
“Carl? You staying in the truck too?” I ask.
“Nope!” He slams the door and races for the entrance as if afraid we’ll call him back.
Mala threads her fingers though mine, walking on my blind side. She’s my other half. With her next to me, I don’t worry about crashing into unseen obstacles. My presence becomes important to her once we enter the emergency room lobby. Her sweaty hand clenches mine. I glance over to see her glazed eyes shut as she inhales. When the breath releases, her eyes open.
“I’m okay,” she says with a grin. “The shield’s holding, and Caspar is not invited to this party.”
“Good, I didn’t want to kick not-so-friendly-ghost ass.”
Her laugh cuts off in a snort. “Whoops.”
“You’re adorable.”
She pinches my cheek. “So are you, sweetie.”
“Ugh,” Carl yelps. “Stop with the lovey-dovey talk before you totally turn me off relationships.”

Baby Girl 3 by Elle Klass Blog Tour

Elle Klass Bio:



Elle was born into this world in Redwood City, California and spent her childhood growing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated from the University of North Florida with a bachelor’s degree in education. For fun she reads, spends time at the beach, travels, and enjoys time with her favorite friends, and family. She is a night-owl known to be a hermit during rainy days, as she has a love for sun, and is mostly found poolside over the hot, humid summer months.

Book Blurb - Baby Girl Book 3: City By The Bay
Follow Cleo, who has once again changed her identity, this time to Shanna Nu, an orange moppy-headed homely girl, or so she tries to portray, as she travels to San Francisco seeking employment with the La Tige Detective Agency to search for answers. La Tige, a hard, sloppy man, lacking in social graces manages to worm a way right into her heart. Finally entering adulthood, Cleo realizes who she is inside, and through La Tige and a few other friends, she finds that true affection is forcing her to desperately pursue the answers to the mystery surrounding her birth and biological family. She manages to tie up a few loose ends while unraveling a few more.




Excerpt 1
Moving through Paris undetected as Justine proved incredibly difficult. My hair was rolled into a bun and I placed a floppy dark green hat with a short brim over it. I considered wearing heavy makeup, using bold chunks of color, but feared it would bring too much attention. I wanted to blend, not stand out, so I settled for absolutely no makeup. I had managed to arrive at the airport and board the plane without one paparazzi chasing after me and snapping pictures. Getting through security had been another ordeal when I had to show the security agent my ID, he asked for an autograph. I leaned over quietly and asked him to keep it quiet, then I signed my John Hancock, or rather Justine’s, and moved on. On the second flight into the U.S. a fellow passenger of male persuasion said rather loudly, “Hey, you’re Justine Holmes.” Thank my goodies most passengers were sleeping.
I looked him square in the eye and said, “Nope, but thank you for the comparison.” Obviously baffled he scrunched his brows and pinched his lips. I happily ignored him and he went away. The next forty-eight hours I attempted to stay hidden, with a book in front of my face, in areas of the airports that seemed most vacated.
