Hotter than Hot Cover Reveal

I am so thrilled to be doing this cover reveal for Milly's new book Hotter than Hot. I was lucky enough to beta read this book before it is released. It is witty, funny, contains hot guys. You need to add this to your list of books to be read.  
Maggie Lee is Space Cadet 69. She begged for a different number. But no can do. She's stuck with a 69 on her forehead, until she's vaporized. That pretty much sums up Maggie's life.
Stuck in a boring job counting tins of meatballs.
Stuck on the dullest space station in the universe, Lanzarote.
And stuck with no hope of achieving her dream of flying scout ships.
Enter hot guy Hunter in his blinged-up spaceship. Things start to get unstuck for Maggie real fast.
Maggie needs to outwit evil Lord Zagon who wants to kill her for her cherished precognition helmet, find a rare space rock to save her family from suspended animation and flee from giddy space pirates wanting to pimp out her friends to the nearest aliens. Hunter being a sexy space god isn't exactly helping Maggie's concentration levels either.
Can Maggie pull it off? If she doesn't, her family will be frozen forever and Lord Zagon will rule the universe. Then she'll definitely never get to fly scout ships.
HOTTER THAN HOT is a NA romantic comedy. It's a light, fast read that will keep you laughing all the way through. The perfect beach read!

Nice Girl To Love Book Blitz Tour

I am so excited to be a part of this book blitz. Check out the awesome cover, synopsis and giveaways. There is two giveaways with this book tour. The Grand Prize giveaway is below,  an Individual giveaway is located on my giveaway page, so check it out.

Nice Girl to Love: The Complete Collection by Violet Duke
Publication date: July 31st 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


The • Nice • Girl n. 1. female of the species who never does anything or anyone bad: Hands-off, she’s a nice girl. 2. the woman that men take home to meet mom: Find my son a ‘nice girl to love.’ SEE ALSO: a good girl; girl scout; Abby Bartlett

This is the complete Nice Girl to Love serial romance collection, which contains: Resisting the Bad Boy (Book One), Falling for the Good Guy (Book Two), and Choosing the Right Man (Book Three).


Abby Bartlett is the quintessential nice girl. Between teaching, volunteering, completing her PhD, and helping her best friend raise his daughter, Abby never gets the chance to be anything but nice. That is, until the all-wrong-for-her man she’s only ever known from afar starts daring her to simply take that chance for herself. His sage advice? Try something wild and fast.  Preferably him.

An unbridled, hotshot attorney with a not-so-little black book, Connor Sullivan has earned himself quite the bad boy reputation. But in his defense, he’s a very conscientious one. He knows far too well that sometimes in life, love isn’t enough…or worse, not even a factor at all. To avoid that misery–and repel the drama–Connor has a firm ‘nothing over a month’ rule.  Who knew a nice girl would be the one to make him want to break all his rules?


Abby is well aware that everyone thinks she’s in love with her best friend Brian. He is, after all, the type of man a nice girl should be with—the polar opposite of the bad boy—the kind of guy who didn’t let his wife’s decade-long illness stop him from showering her with a lifetime of love every second until her dying day. But everyone’s wrong; she couldn’t possibly be in love with him.  Because she’s never once allowed herself that option.

It’s taken a while but Brian has finally come to terms with surviving the woman he spent half his life loving, a third of it losing. Truth is though, he wouldn’t have ‘survived’ any of it really had it not been for Abby—sweet, incredible Abby—the woman he’s never once had to picture his life without, never realized he couldn’t truly live without. Until now. Now that he’s finally able to love her the way she deserves, the way he knows she wants to be loved…by his brother.  Who’s giving him exactly one chance to speak now or forever hold his peace.


And now it’s up to Abby to decide between the bad boy wanting to start a life with her and the good guy fighting for the life they’ve already built.

Title: Tone Deaf

Genre: New Adult Romance

Age Group: 16+

Release Date: November 4th, 2013


His world is music…

…Her world is silent.

Ali Blinde was a prodigy destined to become one of the greatest musicians of the 21st century.

Until the brain tumor struck.

Now seventeen, Ali lives in a soundless world where she gets by with ASL and lip-reading. So when she meets Jace Beckett, she thinks he’s her worst nightmare come true. Jace is the lead singer in the wildly-popular band, Tone Deaf, and he’s exactly the kind of success-story Ali hates and resents. 

Nineteen-year-old Jace has it all: fame, money, and any girl he wants. Every night on tour brings a new performance and a new girl, which is just what he needs to avoid the pain of relationships. 

But when Jace learns Ali is being abused, he reluctantly proposes a solution: Run away with him and his band as they tour the country. With freedom in sight, Ali takes the offer. Immediately, she’s swept into a world filled with wild punk music, wilder musicians, and maybe—just maybe—love.

Ok Guys, you know I am a huge Quinn loftis fan. And we are all eagerly awaiting the release of Book 7 in the grey wolves series - Sacrifice Of Love, Quinn has kindly let me feature the cover and book trailer on my blog. Wait till you see the book trailer it's AMAZING. So here it is
As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left. Meanwhile, Jen’s pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel’s child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna—his life in place of his child’s. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken. As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane’s heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona’s curse. He knows what happened wasn’t real, but still he can’t rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won’t let her inside to do just that. Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She’s desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe? With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance? Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?

Book Recommendation

This is this weeks book recommendation.

This series was gifted to me through goodreads as part of a read for review programme in exchange for an honest review. Here is the synopsis for book one.

Synopsis - Book One

The only three people in the world who I truly loved were my best friend, Ben, my Uncle Spencer and his fiancee, Irene. I am now grateful for what I didn't know on that sunny afternoon. One of them would soon be lost to me. The other two, I was destined to kill without hesitation or remorse.
It wasn't premeditated.
It was what needed to be done.
So I did it."

Success means love. Failure a death sentence.

When seventeen-year-old Oxford student Emily Baxter steps forward to become part of the search and rescue team for her kidnapped family member, she sees it as her last chance to put things right. Despite her seizures and being ripped between parallel universes, Emily is determined to get back to living a normal life. But first Emily has to join forces with the mysterious Gifted & Talented set and the darkly beautiful Henry Seadon. And survive. Killing the Misery-Makers who get in their way is a necessary evil.

INTO THE DARK SERIES #1-4 by Milly Silver is a YA paranormal romance series. It's a story of family, love, loss, and being uniquely gifted.

Here is my Review on Book 1

I loved this book, from the start it had me hooked. I liked that this was something different from anything I had read. I was intrigued to see what/where the story would take me in regards to Emily's seizures. The pace and description of the characters and places was just right. I loved Henry. I loved Emily's view point of Oxford, I can imagine it is just like that, between the difference of classes.

I read all 4 books in one sitting. The only critique I have is that I would of liked a bit more description on the misery makers. I loved you were kept hanging for the next bit of what would happen when Emily next had a seizure. The sudden appearance of the boy when she had a seizure and his constant appearance afterwards kept me guessing. The Guessing of who the Logician could be was constant and not who I thought it was going to be. I thought the way it all came together at the end with Emily's uncle and Irene and all the G&T going in together was great it had me on the edge of my seat.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.

I have not included the reviews from the other books because I believe that once you have read the first one you will read the others in quick succession. I read them all in one sitting.

This is a series I would tell you guys to read. Milly also has a new book due out 5th September called Hotter Than Hot. You need to read this book. I was lucky to beta read this and its funny, girly and contains hot men.

You can buy all of Milly's books from Amazon

Cover Reveal Morning Star by Jason T Graves

I have another exciting cover reveal to show you guys. I posted a while ago about a book I was gifted to read by the author Jason Graves - Blood Roses, its a vampire book and totally amazing.
So the cover reveal I have for you is the next book in the series Morning Stars. I cant wait to read this book when it comes out. I was also honoured to get an author interview with Jason so check out the interview.


Vampires are real, as Marissa is delighted to discover, until she finds that drinking blood isn't all it's cracked up to be.  And so it goes… Madeline uncovers new mysteries and makes new friends, while Marissa makes a mess of her life and doesn't stop to wonder what's going wrong.

In the Morgensterns’ world, Marlena appears to have recovered from her madness, but Madeline is skeptical.  Wilhelm’s seeming need to  manage every crisis is increasingly tested by Marissa's antics and difficulties, a trusted friend's spectacular act of betrayal, and the return of Corelis.  And, to make matters worse, in the shadows, a darker foe is watching… and waiting.

The twins want to be normal teenagers, but strange events and people of indeterminable intent increasingly hem in their reality.  And while Madeline and Marissa wonder if they can just live normal lives, the better question is:  can they even survive the lives they're living?
Morning Stars will be published on September 1st, so check back near the time for the links on where you can purchase the book.
How exciting does this book look, as promised here is the Author interview I did with Jason.
Author Interview
Thanks so much for doing this interview with me Jason
Thanks for having me on your Book Corner!
Tell us about yourself?
Middle-aged, manifesting my inner 15-year-old in a flurry of writing.
On your bio on your website ( it says you are a scientist, in what field were you in? and what made you decide to get into writing?

I was a laboratory technician for several years—pharmacology and cancer biology—and later earned a Master’s degree in Molecular Genetics.
I have been writing sporadically for over thirty years, but never really ever finished anything except some short stories.  Three years ago, I had as near a near-death experience as I ever hope to suffer through, and it really changed my focus in life.  I gave up research science and really focused on my writing.  The iterative process of drafting and re-drafting my 40,000-word Master’s thesis helped me develop the discipline to write my first novel, Blood Roses.
Do you have a day job besides writing?
I teach science in community college and high school.
Where did you get the idea from for your first book - Blood Roses, which was amazing by the way.
Thank you!  I appreciate you telling me that!
My older daughter and wife and I were reading various young adult books several years ago, and I had the crazy idea to write a story in which vampirism appears to be biologically plausible.  Of course, that approach could go tragically dull in so many ways, so I kept the science light and, with the help of some interesting characters, I ended up writing a mystery story, seasoned with adventure and romance, and some creepy bad guys for fun.  It’s really unlike any vampire story you’ve ever read.
As for creating the characters, they kind of do that themselves.  I am very much a pantser when I write (and in life) and many of my stories are informed by dreams.  My characters come alive for me and carry on conversations in my head.  I write these down and edit them, but I try not to force my characters into too much of a pre-conceived mold; I find the story is much more interesting if I let them do their thing.  Obviously, my subconscious is directing the show (otherwise my lovely wife would have had me dragged away to the loony bin long ago), but the image of people living whole lives in your head is a romantic one, right?
Who is your favourite character from the book?
Maelcom, without a doubt.  In a lot of ways he is the bedrock for the other characters, and yet he gets to do and say some really zany things.  He’s like the big brother or favorite uncle who always has a witty comment and is there to pull your butt out of the fire at the last second.  He is especially endearing in that I never anticipated Maelcom—I never planned him—he just showed up one day while I was writing a scene and he never left.
Who are you most like from Your book?
Oooh, tough question to answer… I intentionally try to NOT write myself into my stories, but some things do leak through.  Psychologically, I am somewhere between Wilhelm and Marissa, with a little bit of Maelcom thrown in for good measure.  I have a dry sense of humor that some love and others find abrasive, and I am constantly playing with words and making puns.  I’m a bit of an acquired taste, I guess.
Do you have a "thing" you to do get into the zone for writing?
Music!  I love listening to new (to me) music for inspiration, and I am incredibly thankful that the internet allows independent musicians an outlet for their talents.  I listen to most of my music online now and purchase digital downloads from artist’s websites.
Vacations, even short ones, are also great for sparking imagination.  I recently visited New Orleans for a few days, and came away with a short story and three ideas for novels, one of which I will be submitting to lit agents in a few days.
Oh, and whiskey; it’s great for raw writing, as it lowers your inhibitions and allows you to write more freely (isn’t that a lovely rationalization for drinking?).  Conversely, I avoid alcohol when I am editing.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Sitting on the stack of books that I will have written!  By then, the entire Noctivagas Chronicle will be complete, as will several other novels that are—at the moment—partially written.  Given the progress that I have made in the last nine months, I hope to have at least one book being produced by a major publisher within 5 years.  An appearance or two on the New York Times bestseller list would be nice.  And a movie deal.
You have to aim high and dream big!
The next book to Blood Roses is coming out soon what can we expect from this book?
The second book in the Noctivagas Chronicle is titled Morning Stars and it will be released on September 1st by Second Wind Publishing, a mid-sized press here in North Carolina.  Morning Stars is a more active book than Blood Roses because, being the second book, I could move beyond much of the set building and exposition of the first.  And, frankly, my writing has improved.
In Morning Stars, you learn more about each of the characters and their motivations and fears.  I do a lot more showing, instead of telling, and I focus on evocative writing and capturing emotions in this book, without sacrificing the action and the wicked twists that people really enjoyed in Blood Roses.  And, there are some substantial upsets in Morning Stars.
As a teaser:  the twins learn something about their biological parents…
What book are you reading now?

I am reading an eARC of Reaper’s Rhythm the second novel from my friend and fellow author Clare Davidson.
What is your favourite and worst book you've read?

You ask dangerous questions!  A short answer is that I have many favorites, but if I had to pick out a pivotal book for me, The Diamond Age by Neil Stephenson would be it.  The worst book… I can’t answer that on the grounds that it would be hurtful to an indie author.  However, the worst mainstream-published book that comes to mind is Eregon.
What's next after Morning Stars?
I am currently editing an anthology of short stories, Off the Beaten Path, which should be available on Amazon by October; one of the stories is mine.  I am also working on several novels that are unrelated to The Noctivagas Chronicle series:  Sticks and Stones, a horror novel set in the North Carolina mountains that deals with past slavery and modern-day prejudices… including paranormal prejudices; Raveled Veil, a story about a sex-addicted woman who is allegedly a witch, which causes her no end of trouble with both men and demons; and Tripping, a near-future dystopian novel about an exceptional computer hacker who has kept his talents hidden out of fear, and when they are finally revealed, he discovers that the people close to him aren’t exactly as they appeared to be and others are willing to kill to acquire his skills.  Finally, my Blood Roses/Morning Stars characters won’t hush, so—against my plans for the moment—I’ve already written 6,000 words of the third book in The Noctivagas Chronicle.
Did you read as a child? What was your favourite book?
That depends on the exact chronology of my childhood, but Go, Dog, Go by P.D. Eastman, Melor, King Arthur’s Page by C.O. Peare, Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Hobbit/LoTR by Tolkien, and 1984 by Orwell.
Fun Questions 

Favourite colour? 
Favourite tv show? 
Star Trek (the original series).
Favourite paranormal creature? 
Vampires, of course J
Do you have a pet hate? 
Lousy drivers!
Most embarrassing moment?

Favourite place to go? 
The mountains—doesn’t matter which ones.
Thanks for hosting me!
Jason, thank you for such an amazing interview, I have to agree with you on so many things, Maecolm is one of my favourites as well, I agree a movie deal is a must, My dad is a huge star trek fan from the first series with William Shatner,  One of my favourite colours is Purple, can you tell?
I am so excited about Morning Stars and cant wait for the other books to come out.
