The Dead Days Journal by Sandra R Campbell - Excerpt



 The Dead Days Journal

Sandra R. Campbell

New Adult Dystopian
March 30, 2015

Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

The daughter of a radical doomsday prepper, Leo Marrok spent her entire life preparing for the end. A skilled fighter and perfect marksman, Leo is her father’s second-in-command when Armageddon comes to pass. Together, they lead a group of survivors to a secure bunker deep in the Appalachian Mountains.

Vincent Marrok is willing to take extreme measures to repopulate their broken world. Leo’s refusal marks her as a traitor. With father and daughter at odds for the first time, their frail community is thrust into turmoil. Until the unthinkable happens, a blood-thirsty horde arrives. The impending attack will destroy all that they have worked for.

To protect her home and everything she believes in, Leo puts her faith in the arms of the enemy—a creature only rumored to exist—the one she calls Halloween. An alliance born out of necessity evolves into feelings Leo is ill-equipped to handle.

The Dead Days Journal is a post-apocalyptic story of love and family told through Leo Marrok’s first-hand account and the pages of Vincent’s personal journal, giving two very different perspectives on what it takes to survive.

Mature themes, adult language, sexual situations, violence and gore. 18+


Excerpt

I’m alive, but I should be dead. I’m moving but not walking… Someone’s carrying me.
The sounds of the forest were all around me, except there wasn’t a single footstep rustling the forest floor. I only sensed the movement through the person who held me—superior strength and superior grace. I felt his powerful strides advancing as he clutched me to his solid chest, the strong arms that cradled my damaged body.
Can the dead dream? No.
There was no way of knowing how long I’d been unconscious. My memories were slow, spotty, coming back in short blasts of terror that started with the recollection of my father’s demands for a grandchild. I remembered running away, being attacked by a man in a mask, and waking up on the ground alone, the hungry beast dropping out of the tree.
Are the attacker and the monster one and the same?
I tried to recall the struggle. I’d stabbed the strange monster in the gut and made it bleed.
I hurt it.
The monster had retaliated by taking a chunk out of my neck.
It hurt me back.
I cringed as I remembered the terror and the agony I felt while it fed from my vein. An odd sort of throbbing in my neck quickened as my heart raced. How am I still alive? Panic stole my breath and uncontrollable twitches jerked at my limbs. The arms holding me tightened in response, restraining my erratic movement.
Something slid past my lips into my mouth. I tried to turn my head, working to keep my mouth clamped shut but failing. Nothing stopped the intrusion, which I thought to be a finger, from the size and feel. Whatever he forced me to eat left a sticky residue on my tongue that tasted sweet and bitter, like a bad dessert wine. I wanted to open my eyes to see who carried me, but I couldn’t. So I tried to call out, several times, but nothing came out of my mouth.
He’s taking me somewhere I don’t want to go.
“Is she going to be okay?” It was a man’s voice, a voice I knew. I’m not in the arms of the monster. Jack must have heard my screams. He saved me and now he was taking me home to Ben. A sob of relief pushed past my lungs to escape my mouth.

Bound by Spells 
Bound 2

Stormy Smith

Mature YA Paranormal Romance
Release: March 19, 2015


Aidan Montgomery hadn’t been prepared for Amelia Bradbury to walk in and then out of his life. He also hadn’t expected to find the powerful magic hidden deep within him for the last nineteen years, but he’s embracing it — finding more control and more answers every day. Now, with the help of Amelia’s best friend, Bethany, Aidan is on a quest to understand his destiny and find Amelia.

Amelia decided to stand by her duty, which meant walking away from her first chance at love. Trapped in Cresthaven at the Queen’s mercy, she spends her days with Micah — an ally she still holds at arm’s length — struggling to manage her heartbreak while keeping her mind focused on the task at hand. As she continues to unlock the secrets of the Keeper power, Queen Julia’s true motives reveal themselves, forcing Amelia to decide, yet again, how much she’s willing to sacrifice.

Will Aidan get to Amelia before it's too late, or will the very power that sustains them keep them apart?

"Featuring a cast of mages and shapeshifters with unique magical abilities, one destiny-shaping prophecy, a genocidal megalomaniac, and a budding, heated romance (or two!), this book is paranormal gold! Read the first book in the series first, of course, but once you finish this one you're sure to be salivating for the next release in this not-to-be-missed romantic paranormal series." ~Serena Chase, USA Today's Happy Ever After blog, author of The Ryn.

Fun Facts about Bound by Spells

1) Queen Julia was initially King Julian. That’s technically a Bound by Duty fact but one not many people actually know. It wasn’t until the fourth draft that he became a she, and it’s one of the best decisions I made.

2) I don’t plan out a lot of my secondary characters and as I was writing one scene in particular, a little ten-year-old with scruffy red hair and a penchant for formality came to life. Dillon turned into one of my favorite characters in Spells.

3) Cresthaven, the Queen’s home in Washington, was actually named by one of my readers, Maggie. I was struggling to come up with a great name for an old Versailles-like mansion and went to my amazing Facebook community for help. I loved Maggie’s idea and ran with it!

4) One of the critical plot surprises in Spells (can’t share – spoiler alert) was something that I inadvertently set up in Bound by Duty. I was jumping for joy when I did my Duty reread and realized that I had set myself up perfectly for where the story really needed to go.

5) I have a really bad relationship with outlines. I try to do them but I’m someone who doesn’t get to write every day and when I do write, I’m in for the long haul. When I’m heads down like that and the words start flowing, crazy stuff happens and my characters just do what they need to do. I can think of a handful of scenes and ideas that came in my fugue states and those are hands down my favorite parts of the book.

6) Writing in a guy’s perspective was not as hard as I thought it would be. I’ve been either dating or married to my husband for fourteen years in total and I consider myself a fairly observant person, so watching him and the interactions between he and his friends provided me all the material I could hope for.

7) Aidan’s mom, Kayla, was named after a reader of mine in Des Moines, Ia. The real Kayla is a local librarian, was a huge supporter of Bound by Duty and won a contest I held at my launch party. She is forever immortalized in Aidan’s story.

Bone Dry by Cady Vance - Review, Excerpt & Giveaway


Check out the promo event for the first book in Cady Vance's paranormal series. 

24466321
Series: Soul Shamans #1
Release date: February 3rd 2015
Publisher: Sagan Press

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Sometimes it isn’t as easy as choosing right or wrong.

Sixteen-year-old Holly Bennett is a comic book nerd, a con artist, and a shaman. Most days Holly wishes she could trade in her power of spirit communication for something more useful--like fireballs or Wolverine claws. She knows spirits aren't exactly Casper the Friendly Ghosts. They're dangerous beings from Lower World who snack on human life, and messing with the magic from their world is an express ticket to big trouble. But when a shaman sticks her mom's mind between their world and ours, Holly becomes the unexpected breadwinner in the family. She uses her burgeoning shaman powers to set up fake hauntings and "banish" the so-called ghosts from her wealthy classmates' bedrooms. For a fee, of course.


When actual spirits start manifesting, Holly discovers that other shamans have come to town, summoning life-sucking spirits for their own ends. And the newcomers may just hold the clue Holly's been looking for--the one that can release her mom's mind from its Lower World prison. With the help of both a cute web comic artist and her partner-in-con, Holly plots to take them down, throwing her into a whirlwind of speedboat getaways, breaking and entering, and astral projections into the spirit world. And as her mom's mind slips further away, Holly has to fight to save her, and the rest of the town, before they get sucked into Lower World permanently.




EXCERPT

There are times when I listen to the moralistic words of the angel on my right shoulder rather than the wicked whispers of the demon on my left. With Kylie Wilkinson leaning across the cafeteria table, eager to hand over cash I so desperately needed, I couldn’t help but smack the halo off that perfect little angel.

“Two hundred bucks,” I said, holding my hand palm up. The eagerness on Kylie’s heart-shaped face fell into a scowl. She tucked a stray strand of glossy hair behind her polka-dotted headband and shifted in her seat.

“You’ve got to be kidding me, Holly.”

I pulled back my hand, closed my fingers into a fist and pretended to be interested in my bologna sandwich. That move got them every time. The din of cafeteria chatter rose up around us as we sat in silence. Girls laughed, plates clattered and sneakers squeaked. Five seconds passed before Kylie cleared her throat.

“Okay, wait.” She reached into her Eddie Bauer backpack and pulled out her wallet. 

I kept my attention on my sandwich, nibbling away while she anxiously counted the cash. She had exactly four fifties which made me think she already knew what I charged and had been playing me to see if I’d go lower.

A guy walking by our table stopped to watch the transaction. I turned to raise my eyebrows at the tall, thin figure towering over us. Nathan Whitman, Kylie’s ex-boyfriend. He flashed a grin at me, his dark, wavy hair curling on his forehead, his high cheekbones carving a V on his otherwise boyish face. I smiled around my sandwich and hoped I didn’t have bits of meat stuck between my teeth.

“Is our friendly, neighborhood ghostbuster in action again?”

I’d taken a case for Nathan last year. He’d thought he was being haunted—they all did. Before that day, I’d considered Nathan just another bland guy navigating the Seaport High popular crowd. A preppy sailor only interested in country clubs and stock points. But after seeing the stacks of comic books in his room, I decided there might be an interesting guy hiding behind the polo shirts.

Not that I’d ever had the time to find out.


My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Bone Dry was a tad different from other paranormal novels I've read. I loved the main character being a shaman. The dark spirits, or demons, were downright creepy- as were the other shaman baddies. I think what makes this book a good read is the interaction between the characters. I really enjoyed the different relationships and the witty banter.

Holly was a rather impressive protag. After her mother's soul got lost in the spirit realm, she did whatever she could to pay the bills and keep them afloat. She was an overall good person, even when performing grifts with her best friend, Laura. She was real and down-to-earth. Though she was powerful, she was also respectful of the spirit world. It just made for a good all-around character. I have to say that romantic interest Nathan was my favorite character. What an amazing guy! The romance was rather sweet- Holly and Nathan made a great couple.

Ms. Vance does an amazing job explaining the world she created. I never felt lost because details were revealed in a timely manner. As I stated earlier I really liked the characters and how they interacted with each other. While I enjoyed the plot, the whole story moved a tad slower than I liked- but if you know me, I'm big fan of a fast pace. If you like a slower build, then this is a great book for you.

The ending was well done- the current story line wrapped up for the most part, while the overlying plot was left open for another book. If you like deeply detailed, slow-build paranormal, then you'll definitely want to check out Bone Dry. BTW- after reading the novel, the title totally makes sense in that eerie *shiver* way.

Excerpt:

“What if the Devil doesn’t know he’s the Devil?” I ask. 
Phoenix shakes his head, confused.“What?”
“Why? Why does the bad I’ve done have to define me?”
“Because you’re a murdering sadist,” he snaps back at me.
“No, I am not.” I clench my teeth, standing my ground. I am tired of these labels I am suddenly wearing. “I never, I mean never knew what happened to those girls I led to the Lettings. I am so very sorry I played any role in this vile enterprise in which we exist, but I was clueless. Maybe I’m ignorant, or downright stupid, but I would rather have been dead than be responsible for hurting anyone. And before you go throwing malicious names around, maybe it’s time you consider maybe you’re wrong…? What if you kidnapped and tortured me in the name of a revolution that is wrong?”
“It’s not,” he argues.
“But I didn’t think I was wrong, either.” I am exasperated. “Don’t you get it?” He takes a step back away from me, but I go on. “We are completely turned around. The only information we’re fed is from a corrupt enterprise. What makes you think your information is any more accurate than mine?” 
For the first time ever, he looks terrified. I let a moment go by before I gesture for Raven to come over, and she hurries to my side.
“This is Raven,” I say, slowly, talking to Phoenix. “She’s your sister.”



About the Author
Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, the LETTING.

Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.

I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.

Guest Post by Angela V. Cook, Author of Into a Million Pieces

Hi, everyone! I'm excited to welcome Angela V. Cook, author of Into a Million Pieces. Today she is sharing her Top 10 favorite songs from the playlist she listened to while writing the novel.

My Top 10 Favorite Songs From the Into a Million Pieces Playlist

Music plays a huge role in my writing, and there have been songs that have inspired entire scenes in my books. Sometimes it’s the lyrics that are influential, other times it’s the mood of the song. I have an Into a Million Pieces (IaMP, from here on out) playlist of about twenty songs that inspire or remind me of Allison’s (my main character) story. Below is a list of my top ten J

“A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay
I’ve adored this song since the first time I heard it. Not only is it beautiful, but it also fits a scene in IaMP perfectly. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but it involves my main character looking up at the stars and thinking about… someone.  

“Precious Things” by Tori Amos
There’s a scene in my book where my main character finally steps up to a girl who’s made her high school career a living hell, and this song fits that scene perfectly

“Alien” by Katy Perry
It’s almost as if this song was written for IaMP. I don’t think I can legally quote the lyrics (darn!), but read the book, and then read the lyrics to the song. You’ll see what I mean. It’s not just the lyrics, but the music itself is very sexy and seems to fit the mood of the book.

“Far Behind” by Candlebox
Ugh… *clasps chest*. Again, no spoilers from me, but if you read the book, you’ll know why this song made the list.

“Drownin’” by Sponge
Allison loves grunge music because it’s what her mom listened to, and therefore, what she grew up on. Sponge is her favorite band from that era, and I think this song fits how she’s feeling as she deals with a certain tragic event.

“Demons” by Imagine Dragons
This song encompasses Allison’s fears and her reasons for trying to stay away from the guy she loves. She doesn’t want to expose him to her inner “demons” out of fear that she’ll hurt him.

“Hey Jupiter” by Tori Amos
This song is probably one of the most heart-breaking songs I’ve ever heard. The music itself is very simple, yet solemn. The lyrics take you back to that first heartbreak and that feeling of being totally and hopelessly alone. This is one of those “mood” songs, and I actually tried to recreate this mood in a pivotal scene in IaMP.

“Madness” by Muse
The relationship between Allison and her love interest is complete and utter madness, so this song is perfect. Also, it’s kind of sexy; there are a couple of scenes I can imagine this song playing in the background (wink, wink).

“I Caught Myself” by Paramore
This song defines the battle going on inside of Allison. Part of her knows she should stay away from the guy she’s falling for, but she can’t help the feelings she’s developing for him.

“Black Horse” by Katy Perry
Yes, another Katy Perry song! She seems to have a knack for sexy, seductive songs. Like “Alien,” it was as if this song was written for the book. It’s got this fabulous “You want to mess around with me? You better know what you’re getting into” message. Love it!

This was a lot of fun! Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog!

There are some great songs on this list! It's so interesting how the right music can set the mood when writing and even banish writer's block. ~Kimber

Allison McKready is a succubus. So is her twin sister. But while Allison spends her summer break hiding in the library behind her Goth makeup, Jade fools around as often as she can. Allison can’t believe Jade would ignore their mother’s fatal example so recklessly, but concealing a cursed bloodline and its dangerous effects is far from Allison’s only problem. Mean girl Julie’s snob mob is determined to ruin her summer, and Aunt Sarah’s Bible thumping is getting louder. Only her new friend, Ren Fisher, offers safe haven from the chaos of her life.

When one of Jade’s risky dates leads to humiliation and sudden tragedy, Allison reels, and Ren catches her. But as her feelings for him grow, so does her fear that she’ll hurt him—or worse—in an unguarded moment. The choice is coming—love him or save him—but Allison might not live to make it. One way or another, the curse will have its due.
