Who Is #Ameerah Arrowood?

If you have been following these posts, you know that Ameerah was the only child born into a prominent family in 1907. In 1925, she decided to rebel against her high-hat, prejudice parents and show them who she really was . . .  a flapper gal.


In the summer of 1925, when her parents were away on a business trip, Ameerah had the time of her life. She was offered a job as the head dancer at a speakeasy, and she fell in love in an unconventional way. You’ll have to read the story to find out. ;) She loved to dance, drink, smoke, and have a good time.




Ameerah had two deep dark secrets that were used against her. She was betrayed in the worst way ever.

Again, if you have been following the weekly posts, you know that she was wrongfully admitted into an insane asylum where she was mistreated and then murdered.



With hate in her heart towards humanity, Ameerah found herself on a bridge in a dreary realm that ended up being a recruiting station.


Aidan Logan is an Irish recruiter. He’s cute, charming, and fun.




Find out next week more about what Aidan was recruiting for.

Btw, I'll be announcing Ameerah's release date in the near future. If you haven't joined my newsletter, what are you waiting for? My subscribers will be the first to know when this epic tale will be published. You can join in the upper right hand corner of this blog. Easy peasy. :)

Who Is Ameerah Arrowood?

If you’ve been following the weekly post of Ameerah, so you can get acquainted with her before her story is released, here’s the next one.


In 1925, Ameerah got the opportunity of a lifetime—to be the head dancer at a speakeasy in New York City. She was in love and had a bright future ahead of her. Her favorite cocktail was the tuxedo # 2.


Mixing Instructions:

1.   Mix ingredients together in a shaker (except cherry garnish).
2.   Shake vigorously for 35 seconds.
3.   Strain and pour into martini glass.
4.   Add cherry garnish and serve.

I got this picture and recipe from The Marketing Dame.

Right when Ameerah was about to spread her wings and live the life she desired, she was double-crossed. The ultimate betrayal. It was so dark that even the purest of souls cringed into a fetal position and wept. Ameerah was wrongfully admitted to an insane asylum where horrible things were done to her.


Back in the 1920s there were radical changes in the treatment and understanding of psychology. It was a period of testing of new techniques at treating the insane. Sleep therapy was one of them, where the patient would be injected with barbiturates and knocked out for days or weeks at a time. This happened to Ameerah, among other things, like being strapped to a bed that had leather restraints on it.



Stay tuned for more info. on Ameerah, the dark hearts of humanity, and why she chose the path she’s  now on.

New Release! Slipped Away by #Author Jessica Gomez



What happens when you fight an attraction that takes your breath away? Would you risk losing a lifelong friendship, just to see where it goes? Would you rebel against it?

Best of friends since childhood, Jace and Marisol have always been together. Alongside their siblings, Jasmine and Alex, they have grown into a comfortable existence.


That is, until one day the tables turn; friendship isn't enough, quick glances turn into those of longing, and the laws of attraction play a fierce game of chess with the devotion to one's family. Will they take a chance and make it work, or will their love slip away?

My eyes drifted up his body slowly and when I finally faced him, he had the same look of awe that I felt in the pit of my stomach. The intensity of it all stole my breath. ~Marisol

You shouldn’t say things like that, Marisol.” His words were thick, almost growling up his throat. ~Jace

“Why?” I breathed, sliding my right hand over his chest. ~Marisol

He closed his eyes, breathing deeply, before capturing my gaze again. “Because I’m trying to be honorable and stay away from my sister’s best friend.” ~Jace

Release Day Blitz! Runaway Heart by #Authors Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel & #Giveaway!








Purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1S2MF5K


One Hurricane. Two Strangers. No Rules.

Hannah Adamson was immune to relationships. Swearing men off long ago, she buried her painful reasons under her feisty independence and a passion for roller derby. Until she met Ed and was swept away by the tall, witty, sarcastically sexy best man who might just be the one to have the antidote for her runaway heart.

Ed Alcott wasn’t looking for love, especially not after a particularly nasty breakup left him with a shattered heart in desperate need of repair.

Taking shelter together when a hurricane bears down on Rum Cay, Hannah and Ed find they can't fight their growing attraction. It was supposed to be simple. Easy. A weekend of passion with no strings. But how do you forget the one who stripped away all your layers, and haunts your dreams?

Can Hannah keep the scattered pieces of her heart in check, or will the promise of Ed’s love be enough to mend them back together?

Cover Reveal! Cogling by #Author Jordan Elizabeth & #Giveaway!

COGLING

A Steampunk Fairy Tale for Young Adults
who love a little Romance in their Adventures


When fifteen-year-old Edna Mather tears an expensive and unfamiliar pocket watch off her little brother's neck, he crumbles into a pile of cogs right before her eyes. Horrified, Edna flees for help, but encounters Ike, a thief who attempts to steal the watch before he realizes what it is: a device to power Coglings—clockwork changelings left in place of stolen children who have been forced to work in factories.

Desperate to rescue her brother, Edna sets off across the kingdom to the hags' swamp, with Ike in tow. There, they learn Coglings are also replacing nobility so the hags can stage a rebellion and rule over humanity. Edna and Ike must stop the revolt, but the populace believes hags are helpful godmothers and healers. No one wants to believe a lowly servant and a thief, especially when Ike has secrets that label them both as traitors.

Together, Edna and Ike must make the kingdom trust them or stop the hags themselves, even if Ike is forced to embrace his dark heritage and Edna must surrender her family.

###

COGLING has already gained advanced praise from NY Times Bestselling author Maria V. Snyder!
“This is a fun YA Steampunk novel. It's very different than many other Steampunk stories I've read. Basic plot is Edna's brother is kidnapped by hags and replaced with a "cogling" and she's on a mission to find and rescue her brother. The world is a Victorian-era with a strict class system for the humans and for those with magic. The woman with magic are called hags and the men with magic are orges and they're not nice and are planning to change the system. I really enjoyed learning about the world and the characters are well drawn and engaging.”

#Star Wars

Who has seen the new Star Wars movie? I haven’t seen it yet. Was it any good? I’m curious because I'd heard there’s a political agenda behind it. I don’t know if it's true, so that’s why I’m asking.



I was four-years-old when I saw the first Star Wars movie in the theater. I loved it! I was hooked. In fact, my dad has my Death Star toy, Star Wars case, and figures. 




I’m a fan at heart for the old Star Wars movies, but the new ones, not so much. I was totally excited when I heard this current movie was coming out because the original characters were going to be in it—until I heard the rumor I just mentioned, then I got put off. L

Do you remember this commercial from 2012? I love it.



Anyway, if you saw the new Star Wars movie, I’d like to know what you thought.

To survive and to save her friends, Kai must allow herself to trust Logan, to give her scarred heart to someone again.




About T.G. Ayer
I have been a writer since I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse and am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. The other half of me has been transplanted to the island of New Zealand. A land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain crosseyed.

Blog Tour! Miles Away by #Author Addison Kline







Title: Miles Away
Author: Addison Kline
Genre: Mystery/Suspense 






The mafia couldn't kill him. 
Prison couldn't break him. 
Going home threatens to do both. 

Miles Capadonno has made some mistakes. Once part of the Capadonno crime family, he took the fall for another member of the crime family who once tried to kill him. At age 17, they put a contract out on Miles' head for neglecting to complete a job. It was a matter of priority. Miles went to his dying mother's side instead of picking up stolen merchandise from the ship yard. When you're in with the Capadonno's, whether you're blood or sworn in, when they say jump you jump, when they say kill you kill. Ignoring an order is an offense of the highest degree. When they couldn't kill him, they let Miles take the fall for another Capadonno family member. Now 15 years later, Miles is being released. He is ready to put his past behind him. There's only one problem. There is still a contract on Miles' head. This time, Miles is man enough to collect on owed debts, and he will not back down from the family that stabbed him in the back. 

Leticia "Letty" Alves is a saucy Latina and Miles' old high school girlfriend. She was only 16 when Miles was arrested, but she hasn't stopped wondering about the boy who charmed her all those years ago. Now working as a nurse for a home health agency, Letty's priorities are to take care of herself and her 18-month-old son, Gabriel. But when Miles walks back into her life everything changes, and suddenly, the family that she had avoided all her life is now breathing down her neck looking for Miles. Letty is no damsel in distress, though. She's a fighter, and she never backs down from a challenge. 

Sparks fly when Miles and Letty reunite. Can they put their differences aside to become one again? Can Miles set down his pride and accept the help and love that Letty can provide? Will Letty get over her resentment over being left so long ago when Miles was arrested? Only readers know for sure. 





Welcome to Carrion, New Jersey, where the Capadonno's call the shots. Miles was away for so long, but now the prodigal son has returned. One thing is for sure, the family business isn't ready for a bastard like him.
