Audio Blog Tour! Caveman & Undone by #Author Jo Raven


Title: Caveman 
Title: Undone
Author: Jo Raven 
Genre: Romance 
Caveman is Performed By  Anna Riordan & Jacob Morgan

Undone is Performed by Joe Arden & Jill Redfield

 Produced By PODIUM Publishing


Matt Hansen. Hot single daddy. Arrogant. Rude. Older. My boss. Totally off limits...right?
Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls. Dark, tall and mysterious, he's a newcomer to our little town. He's a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy. Sweet, right? Plus, he's looking for a nanny - and I am desperately looking for a job. Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he's a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude. But oh, so sexy. And I need the job. I can do this.
One thing is for sure: I can't fall for the caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured. That's the only rule - and one I'm about to break.


Kaden Hansen was my whole world. I fell head over heels.
And then he cheated on me.
Or so I thought. I’m pretty sure, okay?
Anyway, I ran away and refused to talk to him again.
But what if I was wrong?
I don’t trust men.
My ex-cheated on me with my cousin. In our bed.
And Kaden, my boyfriend, well…I think he cheated on me, too.
Confidence is a fragile thing, and mine is already shattered. So I flew back to Chicago, putting distance between us before Kaden could hurt me more.
I’ve sworn off men for good, focusing on my work and waiting for the pain to fade.
I’m over Kaden. Really, I swear. I don’t love him anymore.
It’s over.
Only a miracle could throw us back together at this point… and who believes in those, right?
***This is a standalone, novella-length romance with a HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. It can, however, be read as the sequel to CAVEMAN as it is about Matt Hansen’s brother and his second chance at love. It contains the prequel to UNDONE (Troublemaker) and the wedding of Matt and Octavia (from CAVEMAN). ***

Release Blitz! Rocked by #Author Maya Hughes

Title: Rocked 
Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: Rockstar Romance 

When you go on tour, you have to expect to rock the bus.

Keira Weston is screwed. Her art is flopping. Her teaching job dries up. And now she's losing her apartment. A girl should be allowed to have a night of fun to forget her troubles, right? 

What she doesn’t expect is to meet Eric Newcastle, the panty-melting guitarist she's always crushed on. And she definitely doesn't expect him to ask her to join him and a rowdy headlining band as a tour photographer. She knows better than to turn down that kind of opportunity.

Eric even offers wild nights in his bed as a perk. But she’s determined to keep things professional. She's had her heart broken by a passionate artist before, and she's not getting burned again. 

Still, she can’t help but be tempted by the dirty talking guitarist with magic fingers. Especially when he undresses her with his eyes from the stage, Eric makes it clear. He’s interested in more than her skill with a camera. He wants Keira to himself so he can prove what they have is real.

So long she doesn’t uncover any of his family secrets…

Rocked is a standalone novel filled with a lot of HOT romance, a little heartache, lots of fun... and a HEA guaranteed! This rockstar romance is approximately 67,000 words!

Maya has always loved romance novels, one look at her Kindle will confirm that. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child. One of her best friends said she should go for it and she hasn’t looked back. Now her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.  

You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her stories range from sweet and sexy to dark and dirty contemporary romances with even more on the way. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.

October Frights Blog Hop & Giveaways!

A cadre of horror and paranormal authors are offering chills and thrills from October 10th-15th.

We have stories, books, giveaways and more! Come along the dark path for all the scares! Hop onto each blog to see what each one has to offer.

Today I’ll be sharing an excerpt from Dark Spirits which is the second book in my Beyond the Eyes trilogy. 


Our ears continued to ring, but still nothing out of the ordinary caught my eyes. When we reached the parking lot, there were people filing into their vehicles and exiting the premises. I wondered if one of them could be a dark spirit. I was just about to get inside the pickup when a soft crying noise tore at my heart. It sounded heartbroken and lost. I followed the sound while Nathan stuck our bags in the backseat. I moved to the front of the pickup and there sitting on the curb was the most angelic-looking little girl I’d ever seen. She had to be about five years old, and I wondered where her mommy was. My heart immediately went out to her. She was crying in her tiny hands, leaning forward on her knees, her blonde curls tumbling over her face. She scooted her elbows above her knees while she continued to cry, pushing her blue dress up, revealing black patent leather shoes and white laced socks.

“What’s wrong, sweetie? Did you lose your mommy?” I asked, kneeling in front of her.

“Paige, no!” Nathan hollered at the same time she dropped her hands and grabbed my wrist, yanking me toward her. She was amazingly strong, completely throwing me off guard.

She slowly rolled her head around her neck, her baby face contorting into a ghastly mask, her mouth opening and closing like a fish. Then her dark glowing eyes poured into mine. I was too stunned to do anything but stare, even though her grip felt like a tourniquet around my wrist.

“Let. Her. Go,” Nathan demanded, now by my side.

The girl jerked her head up, her glowing orbs on Nathan now. “You have no power over me,” a  man’s deep voice spewed forth from her pink, pouty lips, chilling me to the bone.

“No?” Nathan said, bending so his eyes were leveled with hers. “But I can break her neck, which will take you out of the equation.”

“You can’t do that, Nathan,” I gasped. “She’s a child!”

“She’s soulless, Paige,” he said, keeping his eyes trained on her. “I’m going to tell you one more time. Let. Her. Go.”

Nathan wasn’t playing around. He was serious, and his ears were red, signaling the rage boiling inside him. The dark spirit must have realized it because he released me. I stumbled sideways, falling into Nathan’s quick arms. The sheer force of it knocked us to a sitting position on the asphalt.

The little girl hopped to her feet and moved her head clockwise in little jerks, her mouth opened in a silent scream. She stepped forward and stopped in front of us. Her eyes rolled to the back of her head, then focused on me, dark and glowing. She grimaced and blinked, her eyes now blue. “Help me,” she said in a sweet toddler voice.

I reached for her, but Nathan snatched my wrist, locking his arms around mine. The girl scowled. She closed her eyes, and when she opened them, they were dark and glowing again. I sucked in a sharp intake of breath, and her mouth formed a circle. Her head fell back in deep laughter. It was dark, sinister, and male.

She stopped, glared at me, and pointed. “Vos ero pessum ire,” she said in the same deep man’s voice as before. Then she turned and ran away.

Shadow People

Have you ever seen a shadowy figure out the corner of your eye? Is it your imagination or real? If it is your mind playing tricks on you, how come other people have claimed to have seen these dark figures?

What are they?

What’s going on?

When my parents were married, they were the directors of the UFO Investigator’s League in Fairfield, Ohio. Not only did they investigate anything that had to do with UFOs/extraterrestrial, they also took on paranormal cases and Bigfoot sightings as well. So I basically grew up in a household that dealt with the unknown, and we’ve had our fair share of personal experiences. One of them was  shadow people.

I read a similar post on this subject, and the same theories apply now as they did before, so I shall repeat them in my own fashion, to let you know what they are:

1.) Trickery

Your mind is playing tricks on you. But is it just your imagination? Maybe so, but how come more than one person has reported the same phenomenon? I’m sure in some cases you might be seeing things, but I don’t think it’s a mass illusion which causes hundreds if not thousands of people to see shadowy figures. Ya know what I’m saying?

2.) Dark Spectral Beings

These entities are not Casper the friendly ghost. Sometimes they present themselves in a hooded cloak and some people have seen them with red eyes. When I was a small child, I saw one of those figures while I was trying to go to sleep. I thought it was a witch because I used to have the same dream over and over again of a hooded figure standing in a dark forest, beckoning me to come to it. The memory of the shadow person is vague; however, I do recall going into my sister’s room and crawling in bed with her. I also remember her asking me what was wrong, and I told her I saw a witch. Since my sister is four years older than I, she remembers more details of that time in our life. She told me she saw the same figure float down the hall towards my room, so she knew what I was talking about. We still wonder to this day if this being was extraterrestrial rather than a spirit or demon.

3.) Astral Travelers

Some theorize these shadowy figures are actually people who are still living in this world but are having an out-of-body experience. What you’re seeing is their astral body roaming around while the person is in a slumber. I believe in astral travel because I’ve had an OBE before, so I guess this theory could be true, at least with some of the cases.

4.) Parallel Universes 

There are universes/dimensions parallel to ours. We are in the third 
dimension, btw. If you get into quantum physics, it’s amazing what they’re discovering. Some theorists think these shadow people are interdimensional.

In the same house my sister and I saw the hooded figure, some of the following things happened:

Items would go missing, then reappear in the same spot as they were before.

My parents left a tape recorder on one night, went to bed and played it the next morning. They were amazed to have captured what sounded like a lively party going on in our house.

Another time, my mom heard a couple arguing about their 17-year-old son in our kitchen. Their bickering became so loud my mom had to scream for them to shut up.

They did.


So was the figure floating down our hall from another dimension?

Who knows?

Like I said . . . it could have been alien since my parents were one of the top investigators in the UFOlogy field.

Anyway, throughout my life I've seen shadowy figures. I don’t know what they are, but so far as an adult I haven’t felt like they were evil.

Hey! Maybe I can do a devil’s snare like Dean and Sam Winchester and trap one. Ya think? :)
