Blurb:

It’s the start of summer and Josh Graham will be working at his parent’s surf shop. When his best friend Colby goes on vacation, Josh is stuck working with Bryce—and all of Bryce’s terrible ideas for summer. They make a list of what the “perfect girlfriend” would be like, and now they plan to find her. It shouldn’t be too hard, since Josh is one of the hottest, most popular guys in school. Right?

Bess Navarre would rather read a book than go outside. She’s chubby, dorky, and a self-proclaimed loser. But when her grandmother volunteers her to work at a jewelry kiosk on the beach, Bess has to comply, no matter how humiliating it is. Bikinis and Bess do not go together, and now she feels even dorkier than ever.

When Bess and Josh’s paths collide, sparks fly. But it won’t be that easy. Bryce wants Josh to date a supermodel. And although Bess might just fit all of the things on Josh’s list, she won’t give herself a chance to figure it out. You can find In Every Way on Goodreads

Review: Click Date Repeat by K. J. Farnham

Click Date Repeat cover


Click Date Repeat
by K. J. Farnham


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 21 August, 2014

Blurb:

These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of Internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family.

Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents’ computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn’t even entirely sure what she’s looking for. She just knows that whatever it is, she wants to find it.

Based loosely on author K. J. Farnham’s real-life online dating experiences, Chloe’s foray into online dating involves a head-first dive into a world of matches, ice breakers and the occasional offer of dick pics, all while Chloe strives to shake herself of the ex who just refuses to disappear. Will she simultaneously find herself and “the one” online, or will the ever-growing pile of humorous and downright disastrous dates only prove her friends and family right? There’s only one way to find out…

Click. Date. Repeat.

REVIEW:

I loved this story so much! I remember Yahoo personals and how crazy it used to be! Now that internet dating is even more common, this story is still a must read! These situations still happen, even on the best online dating sites.

I laughed so much in this book. The character Chloe constantly cracked me up and I could easily identify with her, especially since she was single and had cats!

The only thing I did not like about this book were all the bar scenes, but I understood Chloe was in her twenties and liked to drink. 

The flow of this book was effortless, you weren't ever sitting there trying to connect the dots between characters or plot! 

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars! I would read this again versus watching a romantic comedy any day since it was so funny! I can't wait to read the next one in this series, Click Date Repeat Again (Click Date Repeat #2).

I received a copy of this book from the author for Lola's Blog Tours with the purpose of providing an honest review.

About the Author:

K. J. Farnham
Born and raised in a suburb of Milwaukee, K. J. Farnham was an educator for 12 years. She holds a bachelor's degree from UW-Milwaukee and a master's degree from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

After relocating from Milwaukee to Hudson, Wisc., in 2011, Farnham became a freelance writer and resolved to complete her first novel. The storyline for "Click Date Repeat" is a result of her experiences (and mishaps) with online dating, through which she met her husband.

Farnham lives with her husband, three young children and three cats. When she is not busy keeping up with her kids, she can be found reading or writing. A sequel to "Click Date Repeat" is in the works, and she plans to publish her next novel, "The Me I See," in the spring of 2015.

Blog Tour, Q&A, and Giveaway for Scary Out There Edited by Jonathan Maberry




ABOUT SCARY OUT THERE:

Multiple Bram Stoker Award–winning author Jonathan Maberry compiles more than twenty stories and poems—written by members of the Horror Writers Association—in this terrifying collection about worst fears.

What scares you? Things that go bump in the night? Being irreversibly different? A brutal early death? The unknown?

This collection contains stories and poetry by renowned writers such as R. L. Stine, Neal and Brendan Shusterman, and Ellen Hopkins—all members of the Horror Writers Association—about what they fear most. The stories include mermaids, ghosts, and personal demons, and are edited by Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker award winner and author of the Rot & Ruin series.

Kara the Redhead – Q&A
With Jonathan Maberry


KARA: What is it like to be apart of the Horror Writers Association?
JONATHAN MABERRY: When I first joined the HWA it was mostly to get to know other horror writers. Even though I had written a nonfiction book on the supernatural, The Vampire Slayer’s Field Guide to the Undead (the only thing I ever wrote under a pen name), I really didn’t know anyone in that field. I’d lost touch with some older and more established horror writers that I’d gotten to know for a short while when I was in middle school –Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, and a few others. So for me it was about becoming part of a community of people who liked and wrote the kinds of things I enjoy. Over time that’s changed and expanded. Now I am actively community-building, but not just among horror writers. I use the HWA as a model, though, because there is a remarkable amount of openness, support, sharing, generosity, compassion and friendship in that organization. And very little of the infighting that can pollute some other writing organizations. I’m also on the board of directors now, serving as a trustee to help strengthen and guide the HWA so that it best serves the needs of its members. We have a mentor program, our own conference –StokerCon; our awards –the highly respected Bram Stoker Award; classes and workshops, local chapters, and we do a lot of publishing projects. Scary Out There was conceived as a book that would satisfy readers and benefit the HWA.

KARA: What are a few of your favorite Horror books?
JONATHAN MABERRY: I have so many favorite horror books, but there are a few I think are absolutely the best I’ve ever read. I Am Legend (1954) by Richard Matheson is the template for all plague stories, outbreak stories, apocalyptic stories, and post-apocalyptic/dystopian stories. It’s as brilliant and insightful now as when it was written, and sadly filmmakers consistently miss the point of the book in their film adaptations. Then there’s my favorite teen-centric dark fantasy novel, Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962); my favorite ghost story, The Haunting of Hill House (1959) by Shirley Jackson; and my favorite vampire novel, ‘Salem’s Lot (1975) by Stephen King.

KARA: What scares you the most?
JONATHAN MABERRY: I used to be scared of werewolves (when I was five), my father (until I was fourteen), and clowns (until I was eighteen). I got past each fear, and in different ways. Part of it was growing up and studying martial arts. I’m now a six-foot-four eighth-degree black belt and former bodyguard who has been practicing martial arts for over fifty years. So, no, I’m not afraid of clowns anymore, or muggers with a knife. I even think I could give a werewolf some problems. So what scares me now? Politics. The loss of our ability to discuss our differences without becoming polarized. And technology that has been mishandled. That scares the crap out of me, which is why I write techno thrillers –because when you’re a horror writer you write what scares you.

KARA: Did this book take a long time to compile? Was it difficult or easy?
JONATHAN MABERRY: Scary Out There took time to get it just right. It started fast. Once I got the green light to start putting the anthology together I made a list of writers who I felt would bring real game to the book, and then I reached out to them. Not one of them said no. Not one. I started with R.L. Stine because I remember buying a ton of his books for my son, and I see kids reading them all the time. And because I know Bob Stine and he’s a great guy. You see, that’s part of my process as an editor of anthologies. I don’t just bring in talent, I handpick people who are not driven by ego, who are not prima donnas, who are, in fact, the kind to play well with others while turning out superb works. Call it casting from the Good Guys List and brought in Ila Bick, Nancy Holder, Christopher Golden, Carrie Ryan, Cherie Priest, Ellen Hopkins, Neal Shusterman and a slew of others. I also reached out to some poets, because I love poetry and the genre of dark poetry is criminally underappreciated. And was a third phase that took a bit more time. I wanted to give a break to some new talent, so we opened up a limited number of submissions to ‘open call’, and let a tsunami of submissions come in. My two assistants and I read a LOT of stories. We actually had more good stories than we had slots in the book, which is good for what it says about the genre, but bad because I had to turn some fine works away. Overall the process of complicated but I enjoyed every minute of it,

KARA: What will you be working on next?
JONATHAN MABERRY: I am in the busiest phase of my career. This year I started off by having a board game released based on V-Wars novels and comics; then I had five novels out this year and five anthologies, plus graphic novel reprints of some of my Marvel Comics. While all that was happening I wrote two novels so far this year, I’m working on a third, which is X-Files Origins: Devil’s Advocate, which is about Dana Scully as a teen in high school; and my friend Kami Garcia is doing a companion novel about young Fox Mulder. I have the second of my Nightsiders middle grade science-fiction/fantasy/adventure mashup novels, Vault of Shadows, coming out August 30. And my upcoming teen space travel novel, Mars One, debuts in April and we just sold the film rights to it, though it’s possible it may head to TV.

KARA: Which writers inspire you?
JONATHAN MABERRY: James Lee Burke is my favorite living writer. His Cajun-flavored mysteries are brilliant. And I am always dazzled by the novels of my friends James Rollins and David Morrell.

KARA: What is the hardest thing about writing?
JONATHAN MABERRY: The hardest thing about writing, for me, is finding enough hours in the day to write all the stories that are in my head. As it is now I’m writing about a million words a year for publication.

KARA: Who designed the book cover for 'Scary Out There'?
JONATHAN MABERRY: The great Laurent Linn designed the cover, which is enormously creepy and very powerful. Laurent also did the covers for my Rot & Ruin novels. For a nice guy he has a very warped mind.

KARA: Describe what your ideal writing space looks like.
JONATHAN MABERRY: I can write anywhere…particularly if there’s coffee. I’m not temperamental. Usually in the mornings I write at my favorite local restaurant or at a Starbucks. But my favorite place to write is actually almost identical to the one I used to fantasize about, and it’s my office at home. A couple of years ago my wife, Sara Jo, and I moved from the Philadelphia area to Del Mar, a tiny Southern California town just above San Diego. We live in a condo on a cliff overlooking the gorgeous Pacific. I see whales and dolphins from my writing desk and the most awesome sunsets on Earth. So…yeah, that’s my ideal.

KARA: What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
JONATHAN MABERRY: That I can write anywhere. I write in noisy restaurants, airports, on airplanes, walking (via recorder), between panels at comic cons and other events, and pretty much anywhere I can set up my computer, iPad, or a notebook.


Thank you, Jonathan, for answering all my questions! I now have more books on my TBR and I can't wait to read this compilation!

Heidi Acosta was born on Long Island, New York. Moving around a lot when she was younger, she has lived in New York, Arizona, New York (again), Washington, Georgia, and Florida, in that order. Each place offered her something special, but she will always consider New York her home.
Heidi started writing as soon as she could spell. When she was three, Heidi’s mother gave her a copy of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods; thus beginning her lifelong love affair with literature.
Writing soon also became a form of therapy for Heidi, when she realized that no matter what was happening in her life, she could find emotional escape while writing. Some of her earliest stories featured her as a princess who explored new worlds with her horse Buttercup. If it sounds romantic, it wasn’t, there was no prince charming in those fairy lands (boys where yucky).
Heidi now resides in Florida with her husband, very active daughter, one hyper Chihuahua, two sweet cats, and one very fat moody cat.
Barbie Girl is the first Novel of Heidi’s new, four-book, Baby Doll Series: Barbie Girl, Barbie World, Doll Face, and Southern Sugar.

by Monica Murphy


Genre: YA Contemporary Romance


Release Date: August 22nd 2016


Entangled Teen Crush


Summary from Goodreads:


Truth or Dare was never this much fun...

Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on ├╝ber-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out.

Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle.

Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions...but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, sexual situations, adult language, and an intense bad boy hero who will melt your heart.

Excerpt:

Great. The rudest boy at camp just so happened to save my life. I hoped he wasn’t one of those types who expected me to be indebted to him for the rest of the summer or whatever.

I looked away and coughed, water filling my mouth so I had no choice but to avert my head and spit it out. My cheeks felt hot, and I couldn’t believe I was embarrassed, but old habits died hard, I guess.

He said nothing, just grabbed my hand and walked/ dragged me the rest of the way out of the water, until we were standing on the sandy beach. I heard feet thumping on the dock and I glanced up, watched in disbelief as the majority of my so-called friends and the boys from B7B ran off the dock. Not a one of them had stayed behind to see if I was okay.

Not a single one of them.

Were they scared they’d get in trouble? Would Jacob rat me out? He was the director’s nephew, after all. I needed to say something to him. I didn’t want to get in trouble. I didn’t want to be sent home, and I’m pretty sure he had the power to make both things happen.

Before I could say anything, though, Jacob grabbed my shoulders and gave them a little shake so I’d look up at him. His eyes were dark, his mouth set in a grim line, and he bent his knees a little so our gazes were even. “You really all right?” he asked, his tone firm.

I’d quit coughing, but my voice still came out slightly wheezy. “I’m fine.” My bones felt like jelly and I thought I might pass out from lack of oxygen, but yeah. I was great.

He squeezed my bare shoulders with his big hands, his fingers sliding over my thin bikini straps, and I realized I’d never stood this close to a boy before with so little clothing on. A shiver moved through me, and I tried to take a step back for much-needed distance, but he wouldn’t let me go.

“That was really stupid, jumping off the dock like that,” he said, his deep voice now full of irritation.

“Trust me, I wasn’t trying to impress you.” I couldn’t believe I’d said that. But I was offended that he basically just called me stupid.

“No kidding.” He released his hold on my shoulders and walked a few steps away, snatching up something off the beach. “And I definitely wasn’t impressed.”

I made an incredulous sound, one I usually saved for the privacy of my bedroom when no one else was around, and he sent me a look. I was reluctant to admit it was sort of a cute look, his dark eyebrows raised, as if he dared me to contradict him.

So I did.

“Are you going to write me up?” When he still said nothing, I continued. “You said you would earlier.” I glanced around, noticed that the dock was completely empty. Where was Kelsey, anyway? Did she leave me, too? “You want me to?” “N-no. O-of c-course n-not.” My teeth had started to chatter. I didn’t know if it was from the cold or the shock, or a combination of both, but I couldn’t make them stop.

“Did you bring a towel with you at least?” Jacob asked. When I shook my head, he muttered something that sounded distinctly like a curse word starting with the letter F. The sympathetic look he shot my way was surprising as he came back toward me, his hand thrust outward, a ball of fabric clutched in it. “Take this.”

I didn’t want him feeling sorry for me. And that didn’t look like a towel. “Wh-what i-is it?” I wrapped my arms around my middle, my fingers brushing against my goosebump-covered torso. I couldn’t stop shaking. It was like I had no control over my body.

He sighed and glanced to his left, then his right, like he wanted to make sure there was no one around before he stepped forward and stretched the dark fabric between his hands. “Don’t move,” he ordered, his tone bossy as he yanked the fabric over my head.

I jerked against his first touch, but otherwise I remained still. It was a giant hoodie that he slipped over my head. Warm and soft and a little sandy from when he’d abandoned it on the beach. The fabric clung to my damp skin and the hem fell to my thighs, covering me from my neck to almost my knees. I shoved my arms in the sleeves but they were so long, they swallowed my hands completely, even when I stretched my fingers out.

He stepped closer and reached behind my head, pulling the hood up so that it covered my soaked hair. Then he grabbed hold of the strings at the sweatshirt’s neck and tugged on them, so the hood cinched around my face tightly, his gaze never leaving mine. “Better?”

I nodded and took a deep breath, the shivering starting to subside, thank goodness. “Much.”

Jacob reached out and wiped one cheek, then the other, his thumb rough yet warm against my chilled skin. “You’re still wet.”

“I should p-probably take a shower.” I clamped my freezing lips shut. Why did I just say that? Showers meant naked, and I didn’t want to talk about getting naked with Jacob.

(Second Edition)

by

Tweed Scott

Number of Pages: 336
Scroll down for Giveaway!




Texas in Her Own Words is a peek into the Texas psyche. It explains why Texans are the way they are . . . where all that attitude comes from. This work is the result of a statewide search for what author Tweed Scott calls the “T-Chromosome.” Texans are different but why?  Scott went statewide to find the answers to three basic questions. 1) What makes Texas special? 2) Why is this place so different than anywhere else on the planet? 3) If and when it applied, what does it mean to you personally to BE a native Texan?

Scott shares some remarkable answers with you throughout the book. In the end, he learned that all Texans share four traits or attributes. When you finish this book, you will understand why Texans are the way they are. IF you are a native Texan, chances are you will find some of yourself between the covers of this book. It’s a fun read.

Praise for Texas in Her Own Words
"Searching for the soul of Texas, Tweed Scott has done a great service.  People and places and the cowboy poetry of the heart -- Texas in Her Own Words is chockfull of all of these things.  It deserves a special place on your bookshelf. Say right between Larry McMurtry and J. Frank Dobie." -- Kinky Friedman, author and entertainer
"It's a Texas thing, you either have it, or you don't.  Few people can define such an emotion, a feeling, a pride that is embedded so deep.  This book made me cry and smile at the same time.  Texas in Her Own Words helps to explain what 'Lone Star state of mind' is. . ." -- TJ Greaney, Publisher, Countryline Magazine.
"I [Patricia Spork] very highly recommend Texas in Her Own Words (Second Edition) by Tweed Scott to Texas researchers and historians, to any hopeful "wannabe" Texan or to any yee hawin' boastful Texan, like me (a transplanted didn't-know-it "wannabe")." 
-- Patricia Spork, freelance writer and artist
