Pinky Where Are You ??

Hi All,

Just wanted to let you know I am still in the land of the living.
 
Work has been very hectic leading up to Christmas, so I haven't had alot of time to indulge in reading.
 
I have also been the beta reader for a lovely lady; Carol Bond for her upcoming epic fantasy work "The Unseen Promise". Stay tuned for an author interview with Carol and a review of her book in 2013.
 
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a Wonderful Holiday Season, and to keep an eye out in 2013 for lots of new reviews, author interviews and giveaways.

12/12/12 - Releases

I am very excited to let you know that two wonderful authors are releasing their books on this very memorable day!
 
 
 
Breaking The Nexus by Lindsay Avalon
 
 
Throughout history, myths and legends of extraordinary creatures have been told and retold. Fantastic tales of demons and banshees, gryphons and dragons, and of course, magic. Stories that every child grows to learn are nothing more than fantasy…or are they?
 
Beyond the world you see lies a hidden realm, the Mythrian Realm, inhabited by all of the creatures you’ve been told are mere fiction. Only one thing lies between humans and the truth: the Nexus. A magical barrier erected millennia ago to separate the two realms, it has stood the test of time. Until now.
 
For Mythrian Sha Phoenix, magic is nothing new. But when she stumbles upon a portal on the verge of collapse, her fate will forever change. Pulled through the portal into the Human Realm, she lands in the middle of Detective Connor Flynn’s brutal murder scene. Soon it is obvious someone is using blood magic to try to bring down the Nexus. Together, Connor and Sha must work to unravel the secrets before the barrier falls and the realms collide.
 
The Nexus is breaking and all hell is about to unleash…literally.


 
 
 
Dying to Remember by Trish Marie Dawson
 
 
 
The next installment in The Station Series by Amazon Bestselling Author, Trish Marie Dawson, takes readers on another lively journey through the after-life adventures of eighteen year old Piper Willow.

Piper has new challenges to overcome, new names to learn and is faced with a new Station occupation. Did she make the right choice - choosing to stay at the Station and become a Volunteer? Does she really want answers to the questions that never leave her mind? How did the Station come to be? What lies beyond? Who is Andurush and what, exactly, does he want with Piper?

She must ask herself once again if she has what it takes…but this time it isn't about saving lives, it's about discovering what lies beyond death. Would you want to know?


 
 

 
 
Both Available 12/12/12 on Amazon

Cover Reveal ....


SACRIFICE OF INNOCENCE
A cult has been killing children for its rituals and only one cop knows who they are. Detective Stan Brookshire knows but his past keeps people from believing in him. Can he rise above the stigma that shrouds his past and stop a cult from taking yet another innocent child from her mother’s arms before its too late?
 
 
PROLOGUE:

The man in the corner listened in the darkness, the wind whistling through the crack in the window frame, billowing his hair around him. The child in the room with him was invisible in the darkness. Even the power of the sun, let alone the light from the full moon, could not dampen the gloom hidden behind the boarded windows.
 
Hearing a sound, the man stiffened. It was the child; the sweet, young child.
 
"Very soon, my precious, very soon," Joseph whispered, his breath coming in short gasps. Excitement filled his belly; time was drawing closer for the boy.
 
Footsteps in the hallway caused the boy to whimper in fear, lighting the man's loins on fire. Desperately wanting the forbidden, to touch and play with the boy, he tried to force the urge back down. He wasn't allowed that pleasure, yet. The priests would come soon and the boy would have to be pure. The man's needs would have to wait. The boy would have to wait.
 
Dreaming of the day he would finally be able to have his way with the boy, the man fixed the delicious whimpers in his memory. The boy would no longer be able to cry and plea.
 
It was coming soon. So close now.
 
On the other side of the room, he heard the ominous creak of the door opening. Blinding light silhouetted a figure dressed in long robes.
 
He hurried over and retrieved his boy-child, his breath coming in gasps so ragged that he thought his lungs would cease to function.
 
A whimper was all that escaped the gag when the boy tried to scream. Cringing at the man's touch, he fought against the bonds, causing the man's groin to harden once more.
 
The man smiled. He tightened his grip upon the boy as he tried to wiggle free. The door stood open, waiting for him and the boy.
 
Suddenly, the door swung closed behind him, plunging the room into darkness once again.
