Sugar gets a #MAKEOVER!!! & #Giveaway - Katie Mettner

Hello everyone!  I'm very honored that Katie contacted me to have an exclusive of the NEW Covers of Sugar's Dance and Sugars Song!  Thanks so much for letting me participate!  It means so much!  Without further ado here is the story from Katie on what brought about the changes!

A Message from Katie Mettner!
When I first embarked on the writing journey with Sugar’s Dance I really had no
aspirations that the book would be read by more than a few close family members and
friends. When Amazon wanted me to “create a cover” I really had no idea what to do so
I grabbed a pre-made cover, put a picture and my title on it and away I went. I hit that
“publish button”, mentioned on Facebook “Oh and I wrote this book and if you want to
read it it’s on Amazon and Barnes and Noble”, signed up on a Twitter and then sat back
not sure what to do next. To my great shock and surprise people started reading Sugar’s
story. Then they started asking me was there going to be a second? Heck, I hadn’t even
planned to publish the first, so a second wasn’t even a glimmer, but I did know her story
wasn’t done so with that “The Sugar Series” was born. I met all these great authors and
friends on Twitter and Faceboook who gave me all kinds of great tips, advice, support,
love, tweets, posts, mentions and were overall God given blessings to me as I wrote the
second in the series Sugar’s Song. I had a friend do the front cover for that book and I
again hit that publish button and off we went. But as I sat looking at the covers I realized
I was looking at the future. There in front of me were two of the three books in the series,
but I had SO many more books in my mind. I really wanted to take all my ideas and
turn them into a really descriptive, detailed, but fast glimpse into the book. So for about
two weeks I attempted to take all these great ideas I had and make a cover. Turns out
Photoshop doesn’t like me (that’s my tactful way of saying my art skills don’t go beyond
crayons). It’s okay though because I had a way around that and I emailed a friend I had
met on Twitter, Ms. Laura LaRoche of LLPix Photography, and begged her to help (not
exaggerating, I actually begged). I told her my vision and within two days she had both
covers ready for me. I opened them and immediately responded with “These are perfect!
Don’t change a thing!” She had taken my words and made it magical. She is my hero. So
with that I give you the new covers for Sugar’s Dance and Sugar’s Song!

Stay tuned to Forget The Housework for the late summer release of the cover for the last
in The Sugar Series, Sugar’s Night! As I write the story the cover is beginning to take
shape in my mind and yet something else is taking shape as well. It was just an idea I
was tossing around as I wrote her finale, but it began to grow with each chapter I wrote.
Then, as always happens, I got that little bit of divine guidance when Laura sent me the
image of the cross she had created for my book covers. I sat there looking at it and I knew
that we would never really be ready to leave Sugarland, so I sure hope after we finish the
cover for Sugar’s Night Laura has time for a few more covers for my Sugarland Series!
In this series we will meet some new friends and check in on some old friends as we
continue our adventure north.

I want to say a special thank you to Tobi for all of her support of the Sugar Series and
for always letting me jump on and take over her blog at my every whim! I love you
and am so grateful that the Lord led me to Twitter and you! Now, forget the housework
everybody, its time for a little Sugar!

If I Loved You - Jean Joachim

Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, financial advisor, Meg, was shocked when she was tapped to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed. The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.
Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.

First thoughts after.....
Yay can't wait for the next one in the series!!!

How distracted did I get......
If I Loved You is a fun romance that sweeps you up and takes you away.  With love, vengeance, Ms. Joachim's first female villain this story has the perfect recipe.  Meg is smart and sexy and sweeps Chaz right off his feet the moment they meet.  I had to force myself to put my kindle up this morning to get some sleep.  This story is perfect for the sweet romance mood!

Time is running out and Raven must enlist Duncan and his team to help discover the killer before she loses another one of her precious Guardians.

Duncan is the epitome ofcontrol, but even he is not immune to Raven’s beauty and magnetism. Raven is an enigma wrapped up in the body of lust, and attracted to a human. Both must fight their emotions to work together.

But now, Searcy has a teeny, tiny problem: Her husband's had a mid-life crisis. He's quit his job, cancelled her platinum American Express, and run off with the "new" love of his life. Searcy finds herself back in Alabama with no job, no money, no husband, and no plan. After a frigid welcome home, she finds out that life in the small town Deep South is much harder at 36 than it ever was at sixteen. When she's forced to take over her mother's fledgling business, Searcy deals with sullen employees, strange ingredients, and the business owner next door who's made it his mission to make her life miserable.

The Selection - Kiera Cass

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Never Alone - Linn B Halton

Life is all about the choices we make…

Holly is the envy of all her friends; she has lived with the gorgeous Will for five years. She supported him whilst his IT company grew and a life split between homes in the UK and Los Angeles beckons, offering them a glamorous and exciting lifestyle.

A series of terrifying encounters unleashes an inherited psychic sensitivity within Holly and she begins to wonder whether the path she’s on is the one she’s destined to take. The thought of hurting the people she loves the most causes her to bury her emotions, until fate takes a hand. Suddenly her perfect life begins to unravel…

“It’s a gift to be shown something that allows you to make a difference and alter the outcome of someone else’s life. However, the weight of the responsibility that goes along with that is huge and what about the ethics? The thing I have to ask myself is how did my actions change the future?” Holly Elizabeth Atherton

First thoughts after.....
Yes, I do LOVE a happy ending.........I want more........ :)

How Distracted did I get?
Holly is on the fast track to being a trophy wife.  Will she be strong enough to turn away from the life she's known for 5 years.  I like Holly I wish she would stand up for herself more.  Though I'm not sure she realized she was being taken for granted.  Will, her boyfriend you want to smack the crap out of sometimes.  Never Alone is definitely a story I'd like more of from all characters.  With time outs for meatloaf and corn I would say I was definitely distracted from the chores of the house.  I give Never Alone....................

Have you met my friend the Twitchy Witch???

Thanks so much for allowing me to be part of your Logo reveal Kymberlee!  This is very exciting and I LOVE your logo!  Without further ado here is K.B. Miller's Logo!!!!
The OFFICIAL new logo for my ™ Trademarked catch phrase, Twitchy Witchy Kisses. Designed by my new cover artist, Regina Wamba of Mae I Design and Photography
Author Bio Find out about THE TWITCHY WITCH! <3

Okay, so I'm supposed to tell you about me...
Seriously, if I wrote a book about myself it would take you ten minutes to read and you would be bored stiff after the first two! LOL

I'm a full-time writer, wife, and mother. Which basically means there's always a surplus of pencils lost somewhere in my hair, I usually have some place to be(I'm always late), I have a bad habit of calling family and friends random character's names (from my books), I talk to myself because no one else listens to me, and I can throw together a mean dinner for 8 with only 10 minutes notice and four ingredients in the pantry, LOL.

If you can't find me on the sidelines of my sons' football games, online, cooking, cleaning, shopping, at the local coffee joint or on the phone wandering aimlessly throughout my house then I've probably hidden myself in my "bat-cave" to write. 

I have a positive attitude, and absolute fun-loving approach to life. That makes it easy for the voices in my head to take over on a regular basis providing endless hours of entertainment for my pleasure, and hopefully yours.

Random facts about me:

~My favorite color is pink
~I have a Bishon Frise puppy named Cullen Edward
~My favorite music is hip-hop
~I have a severe addiction to coffee. So much so, that those in my inner circle refuse to speak to me before caffeine O'clock! True Story

Enjoy the ride.

Soul Walker - Robyn Jones

"I need to get you to the hospital." He was taking responsibility for me. Only my parents had that job. I stretched my hand out in protest, but the lack of depth perception had my trembling fingers grazing his overheated neck. I swore his whole body shook.

When five-year-old Anna Pierce is offered a chance to have nightmare-free nights for the small price of her voice, she jumps at it. Silence has to be better than all-consuming dreams about blood and death and fangy monsters. The bargain she strikes comes with a secondary benefit, visions of a person's future potential. The combination of visions and silence changes her very nature and soon she's diagnosed with autism. Twelve years of living in her head comes to a screeching halt the moment Peter Davis pulls her out of an icy river.

Her new life has her twirling, tiptoeing, and crashing through unfamiliar territory, one filled with a cranky grandma, a knocked up cousin, an unpleasant cousin, a bunch of mostly good vampires, and the boy who rescued her.

To top it all off, the deal she made at five is no more. Anna is expected to talk, to figure out her resurfacing nightmares, and to control her ever-growing powers. And she'd better get it done soon because if the good vamps want a piece of a living, breathing Touched girl, the evil ones simply want. They'll take Anna for their very own.

Soul Walker is the first book in the Touched Girl Series. It's approximately 91,000 words. Be on the look out for Soul Bender, coming March 2013.
(excerpt from Amazon Product Description)

$2.99 on Kindle

First thoughts after.......
How long do I have to wait for the sequel???  I really need to start asking authors whether their books are part of a series!!!!  LOL  However, I only have to wait til March for Soul Bender!  Thank GOODNESS!!!

How distracted did I get?
Soul Walker is an addictive read.  Grab a copy and plan to not sleep!  Anna is voiceless to protect herself from horrible dreams.  And then a mysterious hottie saves her life and she wants nothing more than to talk.  Anna is smart and sassy and a free spirit!  I love her character and she's a perfect match for the brooding hottie Peter.  Soul Walking is a must read for any paranormal romance lover.  I had to force myself to put my Kindle down so I could get some kind of sleep before the twins woke at 5am.
I give Soul Walker..........

Promo: Deadly Relations - Alexa Grace

In Deadly Relations, a serial killer of young women hides in plain sight in a quiet county in the Midwest. He hides behind a friendly face that inspires trust, a personality that is charming and persuasive — and has a rage to kill he can't control.

Detective Jennifer Brennan, still haunted by her abduction five years before, devotes her life to serve and protect others. So when three young women go missing and are found murdered on her watch, she vows to find the killer — or die trying.

A personal relationship with her partner, Detective Blake Stone, would be violating the strictest of the department's unspoken rules and career suicide, especially since she is the sheriff's daughter. But the connection Jennifer has with her partner, Blake Stone, is nothing short of electric. Working with him daily and denying her attraction is hard. But when he moves in to protect her, it becomes unbearable.

As they fight temptation, two detectives race against time to find the killer before he strikes again. It is the most important case of their careers. It could be their last.

PROMO Racing to Love~Carter's Treasure - Amy Gregory

From the outside, Molly West had everything, beauty, brains, and a career she'd retired from not once, but twice. Being in the limelight and in a sport that was male driven, she was often surrounded by men. She ignored first the boys, and as she got older, the men. Her cold shoulder and patented not a chance in hell look were usually enough to get her point across. Molly had no plans in changing what was a perfectly good system. That is until she walked into the pits. Carter Sterling had traveled the racing circuit since he was a boy. He'd heard all the old standbys, She's out there somewhere, love comes along when you least expect it. Good things come to those that... Yeah, he'd heard them all. The last place he expected to meet the love of his life was on a pro track. All she did was smile, and he knew, looking into her sapphire blue eyes, Molly West was his. Forever. If it was only that easy. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he had a gripping feeling in him. An overwhelming need to protect her-a girl he'd just met. Carter had learned a long time ago that gut feelings are almost never wrong. Molly now held his heart in her hands, but it was going to take a lot more than just love to protect her from the past she thought she'd buried a long time ago.

Elfin - Quinn Loftis

Before tonight Cassie Tate’s biggest concerns were whether she could pass Algebra and how she was going to keep Elora, her best friend, from dressing her in a skimpy fairy costume for Halloween. Her feet were firmly planted in suburban reality and she had no reason to believe her life would be anything but that of a typical teenager. That is until tonight, when Cassie saw something that no human was ever supposed to see; in the blink of an eye she was thrown into the world of the Light and Dark Elves.

He comes from a realm where light and dark have fought for millennia. He is of a race known to humans only in myths and legends. The darkness that lives inside him is a part of both who and what he is and it makes him the most gifted spy and assassin in the history of his time. His life is not his own; he lives in the service of the Dark Elf King. He slays who he must, has mercy on no one, is relentless in his hunt, and never tires of seeing his prey fall. He is Triktapic, assassin, spy, most feared of the Dark Elves.

Now, in the midst of his King’s complicated plans to expand the Dark Elves’ holdings into the mortal realm, for the first time, Trik finds his loyalties divided. For no Elf, Dark or Light, can turn away from their Chosen.

Unbeknownst to the mortal realm, the battle between Light and Dark is being brought to their doorstep. The only one who can keep it at bay holds darkness in his heart like a lover, and the one who can sway that heart must decide if she can look beyond his black past, beyond his evil nature and see the man he is destined to be.

The question must be asked, does love really cover a multitude of sins? Can true love actually conquer all or will his darkness consume those around him until all that stands is an assassin with the blood of the mortal realm on his hands?

OMG REALLY????  When’s the next?  What a cliffhanger!
How Distracted Did I get?
Elfin captivated me from the absolute beginning of the story!  First of all not many authors are writing about elves right now so it’s something different!  Second Ms. Loftis knows how to tell an AMAZING story!  Cassie is a strong intelligent character and holds her own against ancient elves.  Trik hottie mctotty assassin elf is THE BAD BOY! (fyi I will never look at the word assassin the same.....)  Who doesn’t love a bad boy?  Cassie’s bff Elora has the dry sense of humor that lightens the mood where needed as does Cassie.  Once again Ms. Loftis delivers a wonderful story that is difficult to put down.   The boys got chicken nuggets last night with fries....  I'll cook tomorrow!  ;)  Elfin is perfect for the Fantasy/Paranormal  Romance reader!
I give Elfin……….

Racing to Love~Jesse's Soul - Amy Gregory

Racing to Love – Jesse’s Soul (Book #2)
Jesse Frost lived the life most men would kill for. Fast bikes, fame, money and good looks. However, he wasn’t a man that gave as much thought to that as most. Jesse was just an easy-going guy from a small speck of a town in Texas, a guy that worked hard for everything he had achieved in life. When everything else seemed to go his way, it was women that left him disheartened, and finding the right one always seemed to be just out of his grasp. After a run-in with his high-school crush left him even more confused and emptier than ever before, he had decided he would never find the type of love his best friend Carter had with Molly.
Emery Kincaid had a last name that was revered in their world. Born into a world of gas, grease and speed, she was a woman in a man’s world, but she grew up more comfortable with a wrench in her hand than a doll. Irish through and through, she has the temper and sass to boot, and a reputation that precedes her. Determined to carry-on her family’s legacy, despite the chromosomes she was born with, she works harder than any man she’s come across and never backs down. However, things aren’t always what they seem. Emery had remained strong because she’s had no other choice, but the pain she masks runs deep and hiding it is the only way she can survive.
Thrown together by circumstance, and forced to be in each other’s space day in and day out, sparks start to fly—from chemistry and the brakes Emery desperately tries to throw on. Without a doubt in his mind, Jesse knows he has finally found her, but the girl that stole his heart has a stubborn streak a country mile wide.
What Emery doesn’t realize about Jesse is that he’s a competitive guy, by nature and by profession, and he has no intentions of letting her slip through his fingers. Not when she is the first woman to understand him, to appreciate his dedication to his career and well, the fact that she’s beautiful is just the icing on the cake in his mind. It is what Jesse doesn’t know that could break his gentle heart. Hiding her true feelings for him is the only way for Emery to protect him, and in turn—herself. She barely made it out the first time. If she lets Jesse in and he walked away well, that’s a risk her heart can’t take.

First thoughts after……
I have never gotten chills from a book but wow! What an amazing book!
How distracted did I get?
In Jesse’s Soul we get to learn more about cowboy Jesse! YUM a hot cowboy my weakness! Jesse is the man we dream about ladies the perfect gentleman, caring, cowboy, 5 o’clock shadow, did I mention cowboy? Enter his new mechanic Emery she’s feisty, fun and a smarta$$! I LOVE her! An emotional sequel to Carter’s Treasure, Jesse’s Soul will lasso you in and whip you around with all kinds of emotions. I’m falling in love with the characters more and more. Racing to Love series has an awesome cast you can easily get attached to and with each book even more. I give Jesse’s Soul……….

When she’s not rushing her oldest daughter to tumbling, her youngest daughter to culinary lessons, or sitting track-side watching her son race motocross, she’s taking the few minutes in between to scribble the next pages in her Racing to Love series.

When asked, “When do you have time to write?” Amy Gregory giggles. “In bits and pieces,” she says.

Amy is known for her snarky, off the cuff sense of humor, which you’ll find shining through in the characters she’s created. Her debut novel, Racing to Love, Carter’s Treasure, released June 7, 2012.

I’ve spent my whole life trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, and now I’ve finally found it. – Amy Gregory

First thoughts after......
Good book good ending
How distracted did I get?
Finding Claire Fletcher is a crazy thrill ride that is perfect for the Thriller readers. The story is well written, however is not quite my cup of tea. There were more details of certain "issues" than I would like to read in a book. Once that part was over I had a difficult time putting my Kindle down. I completely missed who won an episode of Chopped I was watching. I give Finding Claire Fletcher..........
