Or so she thought. When she left her one-horse town for a college education in the big city, she never could&#39;ve imagined what awaited her.<br><br>She&#39;s quickly thrown into a world filled with angels, danger, and a curse…her curse. Come to find out, she&#39;s not so simple after all. She&#39;s actually the last of her kind, and the fate of the world rests on her shoulders. She has one chance to save Earth, and it all comes down to one choice: Light or Darkness. What is right and what is wrong is all a matter of perspective, which leaves her heart dangerously tangled. No matter which path she takes people will die, and that&#39;s just not an option.</span><br><a href="https://www.forgethousework.com/2015/04/soul-survivor-by-michelle-n-files.html#more">Read more »</a>Tobi Heltonhttps://plus.google.com/114461971387505949217noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1247648456241151607.post-87496732840843081272015-04-01T08:18:00.000-04:002015-04-01T08:18:03.153-04:00Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler Roanoke Author Invasion Participant<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZgzHZK4SnAM/VQbHYzIB9uI/AAAAAAAAELE/VojHMiB7oB4/s1600/10518844_680208328730272_1430624776051415662_o.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZgzHZK4SnAM/VQbHYzIB9uI/AAAAAAAAELE/VojHMiB7oB4/s1600/10518844_680208328730272_1430624776051415662_o.jpg" height="210" width="400"></a></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;">This morning&#39;s featured Roanoke Author Invasion author is</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="font-size: large;"><a class="g-profile" href="https://plus.google.com/102651939282225570124" target="_blank">+Casey Peeler</a> </span></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;">I&#39;m sharing her new release out March 31st.</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;">I haven&#39;t read it but pre-ordered it and can&#39;t wait to dig in.</span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><br></span></div><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><br></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=1247648456241151607#editor/target=post;postID=8749673284084308127" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2Py1-ydvllk/VRvcgvHEDeI/AAAAAAAAEWg/wi60TNw0_w0/s1600/Crashing%2BTides%2Bhalf.jpg" height="320" width="213"></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; color: #222222; line-height: 16pt;"><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TO2CRTM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B00TO2CRTM&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=forthehouimre-20&amp;linkId=6LHZL6I4OI42DJ6B" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><b>Amazon</b></span></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; color: #222222; line-height: 16pt;"><a href="http://bit.ly/1wTvJqp" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><b>Google Play</b></span></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; color: #222222; line-height: 16pt;"><a href="https://itun.es/us/F16h6.l" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><b>iBook</b></span></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; color: #222222; line-height: 16pt;"><a href="http://bit.ly/1GiYCvL" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><b>Kobo</b></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #181818; line-height: 19.3199996948242px;">You can predict the tides but not the changes they make.

She had a few real loves. Water-skiing, going out on Smith Mountain Lake with her dad and her dog. Anything else ranked a distant second. Until the summer she met smart, caring, gorgeous Sam Tatum and gave him her heart. It had been the most wonderful few months of her life, lazy days hanging out at the dock, skinny-dipping at midnight, staring up at the stars from the back of Sam’s truck.<br />They are planning their future together when Sam’s father is transferred to South Africa. Devastated, Gabby and Sam promise to wait for each other during the two years before he returns for college. But lonely and angry, Sam makes a mistake that will change the course of both their lives.<br />Twenty years pass before an unexpected diagnosis brings Sam home to his parents’ house on the lake where he believes he can find peace and acceptance. What he finds, however, is the girl he once loved, now a woman unwilling to lose him again, a woman who will make him realize that both love and life are worth fighting for.</span><span style="background-color: white; color: #181818; line-height: 19.3199996948242px;">&nbsp;</span></span><br /><span style="background-color: white; color: #181818; line-height: 19.3199996948242px;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><br /></span></span><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uZARvBSm2v0/VRAWrAxPhzI/AAAAAAAAEP4/13dXNBacZ70/s1600/10997236_10101623135430772_1349013320_n.jpg.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uZARvBSm2v0/VRAWrAxPhzI/AAAAAAAAEP4/13dXNBacZ70/s1600/10997236_10101623135430772_1349013320_n.jpg.png" height="147" width="400" /></span></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-nNv27HBzApE/VRtLzzt-xtI/AAAAAAAAEWE/iPzcI_X09v0/s1600/Inglath.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-nNv27HBzApE/VRtLzzt-xtI/AAAAAAAAEWE/iPzcI_X09v0/s1600/Inglath.jpg" /></span></a></div><span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #222222; line-height: 19px;">RITA AWARD WINNING AUTHOR INGLATH COOPER writes books that aim to give her readers a mini-vacation.

Thanks for inviting me to the blog today to talk about my newest release, <i>Wrong Side of the Grave. Wrong Side</i> is the first in the Motorman Mysteries, a series of standalone YA Sci-fi Mysteries. The star of the series is Eric Jansen. Girls, he doesn&#39;t disappoint: cocky, tall and blond, with a lean, muscular frame. His passion is music with a raging preference for rock. Believe me, when Eric Jansen takes a seat behind his drums, every girl in the place takes notice. Not that he&#39;s surprised. He&#39;s had decades to practice. The guy is almost perfect. Still, there is that one tiny thing Eric Jansen is an alien.

other times, it feels like more years than it's actually been! :) Thank you to the amazing bloggers, authors, and readers who have helped make this such an awesome release day. Also a special thanks to my cover designer, Kate at <a href="http://parchmentplace.wix.com/dwell-design" target="_blank">Dwell Design &amp; Press</a> for her amazing cover work! I hope you all find the third adventure as exciting as the first two - and perhaps much darker, as there are many underlying things bubbling to the surface, secrets coming unveiled, and a death that will shake the troupe in a terrible way.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-12s5CHzv_wY/VQuEOUzoEtI/AAAAAAAAEOQ/KKeLAi_77bY/s1600/Hunted%2Bliz.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-12s5CHzv_wY/VQuEOUzoEtI/AAAAAAAAEOQ/KKeLAi_77bY/s1600/Hunted%2Bliz.jpg" height="320" width="213" /></a></div><br /><br />&nbsp; <strong>Back Cover Synopsis:</strong> Lucy Sullivan finally belongs with the gifted Donovan Circus. Members are finding their rhythm, even the new folks from the Grayson Circus who joined after the last attack. Lucy feels like a trusted leader who can win the gifted battles and prevent humans from discovering their existence. When tragedy strikes camp, a distraught Sheffield sends Lucy and her gifted team to hunt down the enemy – Alex, a Chameleon with a wicked ability for war. He’s out for blood and won’t stop until Lucy and her friends are dead. This time, it won’t be Lucy’s gift that is tested – it will be her morality. To save her circus, the price will be greater than she ever expected. This time, she will lose someone she loves. And it will change everything. <br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24684797-hunted-a-donovan-circus-novel" target="_blank"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/e2b44-addtogoodreads.png" /></a></div><strong>PURCHASE LINKS</strong> <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TCPSBUK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B00TCPSBUK&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=forthehouimre-20&amp;linkId=HS3UZU35A4R5E2UP" target="_blank"><img alt="amazon" class="alignnone wp-image-2065 size-full" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/amazon1.png" width="48" /></a><a href="http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/books/1121223891?ean=2940151516839&amp;itm=1&amp;usri=hunted+liz+long" target="_blank"><img alt="74196-b26n" class="alignnone wp-image-4845" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/74196-b26n.png" width="48" /></a><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/hunted/id965697584?ls=1&amp;mt=11" target="_blank"><img alt="IBooks_logo" class=" wp-image-4641 alignnone" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/ibooks_logo.png?w=150" width="48" /></a> ___________________________________________________________________ <br /><div style="text-align: left;">Haven't read the first two in the series?

She can control fire, though she’s quick to discover that power doesn’t always bring good things. Her famous father may have created a fiery legacy, but their good name is threatened when Lucy’s framed for murder. Felix Hardy, an old “friend” of the show, offers another side of the Donovan Circus story, one her father never told her. As she struggles to clear her name, Lucy will discover that maybe some things are better left in the past.<br /><br />&nbsp; <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007VT34J2/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B007VT34J2&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=forthehouimre-20&amp;linkId=DNI3MDVNUANTCBKA" target="_blank"><img alt="amazon" class="alignnone wp-image-2065 size-full" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/amazon1.png" width="48" /></a><a href="http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/gifted-liz-long/1110606314?ean=9781475195620" target="_blank"><img alt="74196-b26n" class="alignnone wp-image-4845" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/74196-b26n.png" width="48" /></a><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/gifted/id921755250?mt=11" target="_blank"><img alt="IBooks_logo" class="alignnone wp-image-4641" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/ibooks_logo.png?w=150" width="48" /></a>___________________________________________________________________<br /><br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-l9UnBNH6jOM/VQuDIjvwj6I/AAAAAAAAEOE/rHSQ-udNGB4/s1600/Burned%2BLiz.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-l9UnBNH6jOM/VQuDIjvwj6I/AAAAAAAAEOE/rHSQ-udNGB4/s1600/Burned%2BLiz.jpg" height="320" width="213" /></a></div><br /><br />BURNED is just $2.99 on the same platforms. Get it for your e-reader today! <em>Burned</em> picks up right where <em>Gifted</em> left off, in a new city and ready to get back to work. When Lucy is attacked on the grounds, it’s discovered her enemy had friends – big ones. Medved, a Shapeshifter known as “the Bear,” is intent on the gifted world’s exposure to humans. To build his army, he needs Sheffield and Lucy out of his way. Sheffield sends Lucy and her friends to form an alliance with the Grayson Circus members, who have as many quirks as the Donovan group. Not all are who they seem and Lucy must choose who to trust before Medved kills them all. <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HCQ1N9W/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B00HCQ1N9W&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=forthehouimre-20&amp;linkId=MDWBHK7UTV2FDD3E" target="_blank"><img alt="amazon" class="alignnone wp-image-2065 size-full" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/amazon1.png" width="48" /></a><a href="http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/burned-liz-long/1117803673?ean=9781494264154" target="_blank"><img alt="74196-b26n" class="alignnone wp-image-4845" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/74196-b26n.png" width="48" /></a><a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/burned/id921756780?mt=11" target="_blank"><img alt="IBooks_logo" class="alignnone wp-image-4641" height="48" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/ibooks_logo.png?w=150" width="48" /></a> ___________________________________________________________________<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-PJ-l8RRxbjg/U8SPPVKAxhI/AAAAAAAADkY/tujp2VRBXLg/s1600/About%2Bthe%2BAuthor%2BHeader.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-PJ-l8RRxbjg/U8SPPVKAxhI/AAAAAAAADkY/tujp2VRBXLg/s1600/About%2Bthe%2BAuthor%2BHeader.jpg" height="162" width="400" /></a></div><br /><br /><a href="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/dsc_0089.jpeg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Liz Long, indie author" class=" wp-image-2816 alignleft" height="226" src="https://lizclong.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/dsc_0089.jpeg?w=133" width="200" /></a>Liz Long is a ridiculously proud graduate of Longwood University with a BA in English.

But they’re more than just locals—they’re descended from the area’s most famous Voodoo queen, Marie Laveau—Eliza’s great-great-grandmother. Surrounded by a mysterious world of séances, spells, and sacrifices, Eliza finds herself worshiped as the last great priestess.
