Get Ready to ROAR with AC Arthur!

If you follow me on social media you have seen me post about A.C. Arthur and her shadow shifter series. I must admit before her I didn’t read paranormal romance. I just never found a book that really interested me. But she managed to make me fall in love.

Each year AC hosts a readers event to bring together her readers and authors to talk about a series or combined theme of books. Last year the event focused on her Donovan family series, where the weekend was centered around the wedding bad family reunion of the characters in her book.

This years readers event will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Disney Resort. We’re getting ready to ROOAAARR and have a fun filled weekend with AC Arthur, her shadow shifters, and a host of authors to include: Koko Brown, Farrah Rochon, Eve Vaughn and more. Check out AC Arthur’s site for a complete listing.

There is still time to join us for a great weekend of fun and lots of roaring. There will be a book signing, workshops, parties, food and fun. What a great way to end the summer. Join us August 29-September 1 at the Walt Disney resort and get ready to roar. It’s a Season of Shifters!

My Road to Essence!!

As many of you may know I started an internship with Delphine Publications in January. This  internship has allowed me to learn so much about the marketing aspects of the publishing industry. I have always love to read and the chance to work with such talented authors has been a blessing. Well now I am in need of your help. Delphine Publications would like me to join them in New Orleans, LA for the Essence Music Festival in July.  So they have started a fundraiser to get me to Essence.

I am asking that friends and family help me on “My Road to Essence.” This is a working trip and I will have the chance to meet authors from the company and our CEO Tamika Newhouse, who has graciously allowed me to work with her company. Even though the company headquarters is in Atlanta, GA; I have had the opportunity to intern with them from Virginia. Each week I am given assignments to complete, books and events to promote.

If you help me by sending in a monetary donation, I would greatly appreciate it. I will be blogging about my experience as well. Thank You in advance for assisting me in “My Road to Essence.”

Book Review: Simple Amazing (Arrington Family Series) by Candace Shaw

Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses.

Cannon Arrington is a med student whose focus is on school,extracurricular activities and helping others.  During one of his extra curricular activities he is reunited with his favorite teachers daughter, Yasmine Duboise. Something about this bubbly sexy school teacher makes him rethink his priorities in life.

Your high school crush could be your soul mate.

Yasmine Duboise is reading to her class and in walks today’s read-a-long volunteer Cannon Arrington. She has had a crush on him since she was in high school. Who would have thought, he would be the one to read to her class on this particular day. Awakening feelings inside him, does Yasmine wait for Cannon to realize you can have your career and love too or does she simply walk away from the man who has held her heart for years.

Simply Amazing is a short story of love, romance and patience. Shaw did excellent job in telling a story about two young people who have to decide if love is something they are willing to enjoy; something that cannot be scheduled.

Amazon has Simply Amazing by Candace Shaw for free on Kindle.

Book Review: Love Under Fire by Nikki Walker

Love Under Fire
The Complete Set Of The Tested Love Series


Love can hurt and love can heal but only if you let it take its course.

This series is three books in one. Each book is a page turner. I just couldn’t help myself. These characters are like your friends, you know their life stories, their fears, their desires.

Love Through The Fire

First up we have Naya and Marcus, who gets injured in an accident and needs Naya to help him recover from his injuries. Their past relationship is put to the test when Naya has to move with Marcus to start his rehabilitation. Can they rekindle the love they once had or has their divorce created a brick wall that cannot be knocked down.

Been There -Done That

Andrea is grieving the loss of her daughter and enters in to her life Det. Zane Perkins, who is dealing with the loss of his son as well. Using her daughters memory to build her gift basket business, her focus is soley on her business and nothing else; not even Zane. But can he convince Andrea that a love lost is not forever but a healing process to begin a love journey of forever.

Hearts On Fire

Trey is burnt out and in need of some rest and relaxation. Sherri is run-down from being chased by her superior who wants her dead. She runs to the one person that she feels safe with, Trey. But, how does she deal with being in such close proximity of her love crush? Trey has watched Sherri grow up, he’s always treated her with care but now he sees her for more than just a little sister. While keeping her safe from those who are trying to harm her, can he convince her that his heart belongs to her eternally?

These three stories take in you and have you turning the pages from the very beginning. I will admit that each of these stories could have been their own full fledged novels, but Walker gives you what you need to know in each story. She takes on a heartfelt journey through the lives of characters, that you can actually relate to.

Go ahead and grab Love Under Fire by Nikki Walker from Amazon right now, you won’t be disappointed.
