Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday-Hosted By Cambria Hebert

In honor of fall and my favorite month (October) tell me what you love best about Halloween and fall. Feel Free to post pictures! Do you plan to dress up for halloween? If so, what would you be? If not when was the last time you dressed up and where were you?

I love everything about Fall, the leaves changing colors, bonfires, HOODIES, hot chocolate, the cool weather, being able to wear my boots. Just EVERYTHING!! 

As for Halloween, I dont really dress up anymore, I did think about doing this year. I want to dress up as one of my favorite characters from a book (Cambria~Dirty Blood Series) but I havent fully decided yet. I love watching my kids pick out their costumes, dressing up and going Trick or Treating, there is just something about the magic of a child trick or treating that everyone loves I believe. 

What can I say I am a Fall-time girl :)   Good thing I live in the country......Oh thats something else Fall is good for, 4-wheeling!!

Now-betrayed by the goverment sixty-seven years later, Thomas and Kara are in a race against time to transform themselves back to their feral states or risk exsanguination by goverment sanctioned squads.

All I can say is WOW!!!!! I honestly picked up this booking thinking "ok another vampire book" but once I started reading its not really just "another vampire book" it was more then that. It was a book that was a page turner, one that I could not put down no matter how hard I wanted too. Lets just say it took me only 2 hours to read this book. It was thrilling and I couldnt wait to turn the page just to see what happened next. I could picture in my head what was going on when Thomas would say or do something. This is my opinion is a MUST READ!!!!

Bone Wires Review

Title: Bone Wires
Author: Michael Shean
Genre: Dark, Mystery, Science Fiction
Publisher: Curiosity Quills/Whampa, LLC
Pages: 380 (Paperback)

Amazon (Kindle)   Amazon (Paperback)   Barnes & Noble (Paperback and Nook   Books A Million

Book Description:
In the wasteland of commercial culture that is future America, police are operated not by government but by private companies. In Seattle, that role is filled by Civil Protection, and Daniel Gray is a detective in Homicide Solutions. What used to be considered an important - even glamorous - department for public police is very different for the corporate species, and Gray finds himself stuck in a dead end job.
That is, until the Spine Thief arrives.
When a serial killer begins harvesting the spinal tissue of corporate employees all over the city, Detective Gray finds himself plunged into the first truly major case of his career. Caught in a dangerous mix of murder, betrayal and conflicting corporate interest, Gray will find himself not only matching wits with a diabolical murderer but grapple with his growing doubt toward his employers in the dawning months of the American tricentennial. A thrilling mystery set in the same world as the Wonderland Cycle, Bone Wires is a grim trip into the streets of the empty future.

 I will admit I have never read a science fiction book before this one so I was not quite sure what to expect. Once I started reading it then I could not stop reading it. I was so into the story I could see the pictures in my head as to what was going on. When you can actually put yourself into the book you know you have found an awesome book!! Let me fair warn you thought if you decide to read this book then be sure you have a full day to read it or else you will be up all night reading it, well atleast I was.

About The Author:
Michael Shean was born amongst the sleepy hills and coal mines of southern West Virgina in 1978. Taught to read by his parents at a very early age, he has had a great love of the written word since the very beginning of his life. Growing up, he was oftern plagued with feelings of isolation and loneliness: he began writing off and on to help deflect this, though these themes are often explored in his work as a consequence. At the age of 16, Michael began to experience a chain of vivid nightmares that has continued to this day; it is from these aberrant dreams that he draws inspiration. 

In 2001 Michael left West Virginia to pursue a career in the tech industry, and he settled in Washington, DC area as a web designer and graphic artist. As a result his writing was put aside and not revisitied until five years later. In 2006 he met his current fiance, who urged him to pick up his writing once more. Several years of work and experimentation yieled the core of what would become his first novel, Shadow of a Dead Star (2011). Michael is currently signed with Curiosity Quills Press, who has overtaken the publication of Shadow of a Dead Star and the other books of his Wonderland Cycle.

Binding Arbitration Review/Giveaway

Title: Binding Arbitration
Author: Elizabeth Marx
Genre: Romance, Family Saga, Contemporary/Chick Lit
Publisher: Self Published


Amazon Kindle  Amazon Paperback  Barnes & Noble  iTunes  Sony eReader  Diesel 

Book Description:Through the corridors of the Windy City’s criminal courts, single mother Libby Tucker knows exactly how far she’ll go to save her cancer-stricken son’s life. The undefeated defense attorney is prepared to take her fight all the way to the majors.

Circumstances force Libby to plead her case at the cleats of celebrity baseball player Banford Aidan Palowski, the man who discarded her at their college graduation. Libby has worked her backside bare for everything she’s attained, while Aidan has been indulged since he slid through the birth canal and landed in a pile of Gold Coast money. But helping Libby and living up to his biological duty could jeopardize the only thing the jock worships: his baseball career.

If baseball imitates life, Aidan admits his appears to be silver-plated peanuts, until an unexpected confrontation with the most spectacular prize that’s ever poured from a caramel corn box blindsides him. When he learns about his son’s desperate need, it pricks open the wound he’s carried since he abandoned Libby and the child.

All Libby wants is a little anonymous DNA, but Aidan has a magical umpire in his head who knows Libby’s a fateball right to the heart. When a six-year-old sage and a hippy priestess step onto the field, there’s more to settle between Libby and Aidan than heartache, redemption, and forgiveness.

This first chapter was a little hard to get into, maybe it was the magical ump in Aidan's head or the fairies, but once I hit the second chapter it was a GO from there. This book is the most emotional book I have read yet. You can find yourself feeling what Aidan and Libby feel in the book. I smiled with them, I cried with them and my heart broke with them. Binding Arbitration is a book that shows you that not only can true love bring two people together but it can bind them deeper then just the heart, it binds their souls. It also shows that love can overcome heartbreak and make miracles happen. If you want to read a love story like no other then be sure to get your copy of Binding Arbitration TODAY! Trust me its well worth it. This is a book I will keep and read again.

About the Author:

Windy city writer, Elizabeth Marx, brings cosmopolitan life alive in her fiction—a blend of romance, fast-paced Chicago living, and a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer, not a decorator, a designer, which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match things, measure things and miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing. 

Elizabeth grew up in Illinois, but has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she’s not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies somewhere or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who’ve spelled everyone into believing they’re really dogs.

Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there’s no town like Chi Town.

Ready for Fall?

Tell Me Something Tuesday hosted by Cambria Hebert!

Today's TMST is What fall books are you ready for? Well here are mine. There are only 3 so not a long list.


For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news…or worse.


For years, I accepted that Heven was more popular than me. I never liked it but I lived with it. I walked in her shadow, I stood by her when no one else would. When I finally thought her spotlight was mine things began to change. She began to change. Now she hardly ever calls me back, she spends all her time with her hot new boyfriend and everyone at school thinks she’s back on top. She had it all. But apparently she wants more. She wants Cole – my boyfriend. What’s worse is that it looks like she got him. I’ve had enough and she’s going to be sorry. Why?
Because I am bewitched.


Betrayal burns. Death hurts and the clock ticks…
Minutes and hours stretch into days. How long can Sam survive being confined in Hell? I have a plan… a plan with a lot of holes. I need someone who can make up for my weaknesses, someone who possesses the power that I lack. Riley is supposed to be off limits. He’s dangerous, he’s mean and he’s not to be trusted. But I do.
Beelzebub is on a tirade, bent on revenge. I took what he wants and sent him into the flames. I will wear the scars of his punishments forever. But scars don’t scare me anymore.
On my way to free Sam I find my true path, a secret place and new allies. But in Hell nothing is easy… and everything is cruel. The only thing left to do is survive.

Delaney Lortal is a unique breed of girl. She is well spoken, extremely well read, and highly ambitious for love, but it is not those qualities that make her so unique. It's not even because in twenty-two years of life, she has never set foot outside of her grandfather's house. What makes her so unique is the truth behind a mysterious secret that has made her the target of a clandestine Order called the Orisanima. As wondrous as it is heartbreaking, Song of Eidolons follows Delaney's journey of enlightenment as she struggles to peel back the layers of deceit to discover the amazing truth about her origins.

Its FINALLY here!!!!!

Im ALWAYS excited over new books specially new books by my favorite authors! I am proud to announce (a few days late) that BLOOD BOND by Heather Hildenbrand has been released!!!! Check out some quotes from the book below, the Cover and the link to buy your copy of Blood Bond today! 


“I could never run, you know,” I said. “Not because it isn’t tempting, but because I can’t outrun me. If it were only about facing CHAS, stopping them, or changing them, I’d do it. In a second. Or I’d try. Facing myself is a different story. How can I demand they accept me when I don’t know who I am?”
“I can’t answer that for you. I can only tell you what was told to me by someone very wise: ‘Your blood doesn’t define who you are. Your choices do.’” ~Blood Bond

 “What are you going to do with this, Tara?” Alex asked.
I didn’t answer him right away because honestly, I wasn’t sure. For the first time, the pressure of leadership that Wes was always talking about weighed on me. It seemed the harder I fought against it, the more I was propelled into leading a cause I wasn’t even sure I stood for yet.~~~Blood Bond

“Cord’s not all bad. You have to let her warm up to you,” Wes said.
“Right. Warm up to me.” I shook my head. “That would be like melting the polar ice cap with a space heater.”~~~Blood Bond

 “You saved Tara from the attack,” Wes said, startling me with the abruptness of his words. He was still staring at Alex.
“Yes.” Alex didn’t move.
“You have feelings for her,” Wes said.
Alex hesitated for only a split second. “Yes.”
“Would you die to protect her?”
