The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The Iron King 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Copyrighted in 2010
Source: Bought from Wal-Mart

Synopsis: Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

Becoming Amish

Guest Post with Samantha Bayarr

Becoming Amish:

When I set out to write my first Amish romance, I wanted it to be out of the ordinary…one that would stand out in the crowd of Amish romance novels.

What I got was a re-write of my own history with a lot of twists!

Being my first Amish romance novel, I wanted to do what all the “experts” advised and write what I know…I came from a big family, and had spent a lot of time on my uncle’s farm as a young child, and I lived in Goshen, Indiana for several years and interacted with the Amish and observed their way of life, so I already had half the battle played out in my head.

Guest Post By Andy Holloman

Discovering the Differences in Social Media Sites - Any one that is embarking on the path of publishing a novel will be inundated with well meaning advice regarding the importance of using social media to promote, market, sell, etc. So, after receiving said advice, I embarked on this path six months ago. Now, like many folks, I had joined the Facebook revolution a while back (for me, back in 2009) and left after a few months of not finding much value. (This was prior to having any inkling that my novel was going to be published.) I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable FB was when I began to really treat it as a social "place" and started to reach out to folks that I had not seen in many years, or even those folks that I saw fairly regularly. It opened up a "window" that allowed me to interact with people in a way that would not have existed without FB. I was gaining "friends" and I was gleaning information about folks that I would NEVER have received without FB.

Guest Post With Author Kristie Cook

Today we have bestselling and award-winning author Kristie Cook with us. Kristie is the author of the Soul Savers Series, which includes Promise (#1), Purpose (#2) and the newly released Genesis: A Soul Savers Novella.

Thank you, Christina, for having me! It's such a pleasure to meet new people and readers. When readers hear about my newest release, Genesis: A Soul Savers Novella, the first question I get is “What’s a novella?” which is then followed by a discussion of why I made this a novella. In short, because the characters ran away with me. In long, well…here goes.

I'm Sorry

If you have been waiting on a package or an email from me. I am so sorry. I have had a rough week. We had an infant in the family rushed to the ER because he wasn't breathing and had a small drop of blood under his nose. He was shipped to the women and children's hospital. He has been on life support ever since. We are praying for him and we would greatly appreciate your prayers as well. We were told that he is 1/3 brain dead and we don't know what is going to happen from here.

And as if that wasn't bad enough...

Farsighted By: Emlyn Chand

About the book:
Alex Kosmitoras’s life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead-broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he’s blind. Just when he thinks he’ll never have a shot at a normal life, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to “see” the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex must embark on a journey to change his future.
