Minutes Before Sunset, book 1

CoverTwo destinies. One death.

“Her kiss could kill us, and my consent signed our death certificates.”

Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.

Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

Minutes Before Sunset is the first book in The Timely Death Trilogy.

More Prizes to Win!

18 Dec

First, sorry that I didn’t post this at midnight this morning, but I am in the last two finals I will ever take. That’s right – next time I post on this blog, I will be a college graduate. 

Second, thank you to author, T.B. Markinson, for guest blogging on the 16th. Isn’t she amazing?

Third, if you’ve been following my blog since last week, then you might have seen the Ebook Extravaganza Virtual Launch Party where we gave away a Kindle Paperwhite as well as many other prizes, like Amazon and Starbucks gift cards. If you attended, I hope you won one of the many prizes! If you didn’t here’s your chance to win AGAIN!

Firsborn Virtual Launch Party - Cover Art

Tomorrow, on December 19 (7 – 9 CST), celebrate the anticipated contemporary fantasy, Firstborn, meet the author, and win prizes.

Everything is virtual – meaning, you celebrate over Facebook. There are games every 10 minutes, and every time you participate, you have a chance at winning something fantastic! And you guys know Ryan Attard. He guest blogged on my website on October 21. (Here’s that post.)

Join the event here

And if you’re interested in contemporary fantasy, here’s a synopsis of his recently released novel, Firstborn:

“There’s a war raging between the forces of Heaven and Hell; and, as if his own issues weren’t enough to deal with, his sister has chosen the wrong side. Now he’s got angels, demons, talking pets and a Japanese monster to contend with. Follow Eric Ashendale in this first full length novel of ‘The Legacy Series.’”

Ryan Attard is beyond hilarious and sure to entertain you. He also has a short story, Dread Night, published, and a website you can check out if you’re extra interested.

P.S. Can’t wait to post next time as a college graduate!
