Author Spotlight Bryna

Here is another wonderful author behind the giveaway. She is a longtime friend and writes fun books with covers I envy. Check out her book on Amazon or on her website.


 

Bryna Butler's Bio:

Bryna Butler’s love of storytelling leads her heart to many fandoms. You will often find her online gushing about the latest movie/TV show/book or fondly reminiscing about the time she met Charlaine Harris and didn’t faint (barely). She believes strongly in the importance of staying positive and treating others with respect.

Bryna is a journalism-trained writer having authored hundreds of articles and financial publications before taking the leap into fiction in 2011. Her first book, Of Sun & Moon, skyrocketed to number one on Kindle top free charts in multiple categories in the U.S. and U.K. when the title went to free status in 2014 and again held #1 Teen Romantic Mystery on the Kindle Free charts in the U.S. in February 2020. The book also has a cameo in The Morganville Vampires web series, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Beth Crowley’s song, “The Dark,” was written for the Midnight Guardian series and has over 1.6 million views on YouTube.

Butler's young adult novels feature strong females and are woven from elements of horror, suspense, comedy, and mystery, all in a contemporary, small town setting. All of her books are considered parent-approved, safe reads for pre-teen as well as teen readers.



Here is the cover I am so JELLY over. Wish I'd seen it first. :) I haven't read this yet, but it is definitely on my TBR list. 

Blurb: When Eric Jansen takes a seat behind his drums, every girl in the place takes notice. Not that he is surprised. He has had decades to practice. The guy is almost perfect. Still, there is that one tiny thing… 

Eric is an alien. Offworlder. Take me to your leader, fall from the sky, space invading, phoning home, UFO jockey. Hiding out as a teenager in the local garage band, a swipe of the tattoo on his arm will reveal his true form. Locals call him Mothman, a winged creature formed of ashen gray skin and glowing red eyes whose hunger can only be satisfied by one thing … vampires. 

When the unknown surfaces in the sleepy river town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, Eric would rather keep playing his drums, but there is no stopping his book blogging best friend or his men in black handler from dragging him into another mystery. 

Are you ready for some campy fun? Fans of Doctor Who and The Dresden Files will love the Mothman Mysteries, suspenseful teen paranormal mysteries with a sci-fi twist. Find out about Bryna's other books HERE on Amazon. or HERE on her website.

Author Spotlight

The Christmas in July Giveaway is coming!!! 

Are you ready for it? I'd like to introduce you to another author behind the big giveaway. She is a friend and the fantastic author of both Paranormal and Mystery novels. If you haven't tried any of her books, check them out on her Amazon page HERE!


Brandy Nacole

Bio:
Brandy Nacole is a writer of paranormal suspense and mystery. She's penned the bestselling novel DEEP IN THE HOLLOW, THE SHADOW WORLD TRILOGY and MURDER IS A DEBATE.

She loves keeping readers on the edge of their seats as that's where she likes to stay. Her favorite pastimes are reading, writing, exploring the world, and spending as much time with her husband, kids, and fur babies as possible. If Brandy can't be found, it's okay, she's not lost. She's frolicking in the woods somewhere and will return for tacos eventually.


Deep in the Hollow (A Chindi Novel, Book 1)

Blurb:
Let me share some wisdom with you. There is evil in this world we cannot see. Not because it is hidden from us, but because our minds refuse to accept its existence. Once we are able to get past what everyone says should not be, it becomes our responsibility to stop the evil we now see.

This insight wasn’t given to me until a year after I lost the most important person in my life: Bryce Rowan. Now, after another death at the same spot where he died—the overlook, where the mysterious lights dance amongst the trees—I begin to wonder if they were accidents after all. Lucky for me, I’m not the only curious one in town. Cooper, a ghost hunter (aka chaser), and his sister Jada have moved to town and are starting to ask questions.

The more we uncover about my town, its history, and some of its current residents - people I have known my whole life - the more I begin to think there are those who would rather keep the evil lurking around town a secret. Even if it means more will die.

The book she is giving away for our Christmas in July promo is Kingdoms of Shadow and Dust

Blurb: As the king's only daughter, Ava was supposed to be many things; meek, submissive, and above all, silent. While she dreams of fighting alongside the armies of Ankara, she's forced to hide her identity behind a veil.

It seems her prayers are answered when fate intervenes, allowing Ava to sneak away and join the battle. Yet, the tides of war turn on her, leaving the young beauty defeated... her hopes shattered. Her only chance at salvation is Callen, a mysterious black wolf willing to risk everything by hiding her away among his kind.

But there are some dangers far more ominous than the snapping jaws of a wolf. Ripped away from the brave Turnskins, Ava is imprisoned by the beguiling Shadow King who fills her head with promises of peace and a haze of passion. Forced to choose between her family, the bond she shares with Callen, and the handsome king's striking proposal, Ava finds herself torn between duty and desire. 

When an unthinkable sacrifice is required to save all she holds dear, will Ava accept the crushing demands of taking the crown?  Or follow her heart to the forbidden touch she desperately craves?

 I have BIG NEWS!!!

A huge giveaway is coming your way soon with lots of free books and an Amazon gift card. Stick with me over the next few weeks and I will give you all the details. But first, I want to introduce you to one of the authors behind the giveaway. If you haven't read any of her books, you should give them a try. 

Meet Tamara Grantham...

 Tamara Grantham is the successful author of more than a dozen books. She’s won numerous awards, such as a first place Rone award, and first place in Foreword Review’s Book of the Year awards. Many of her books are #1 bestsellers on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and they have obtained more than three-hundred five-star reviews. She has a BA in English, and she’s been a featured speaker at numerous writing conferences and comic cons.

Born and raised in Texas, Tamara now lives with her husband and five children in Wichita, Kansas. She rarely has any free time, but when the stars align and she gets a moment to relax, she enjoys reading fantasy novels and watching every Star Wars or Star Trek movie ever made.

Personally, I really like her imaginative fairy tale retellings starting with The Witch's Tower (which is free right now, by the way). 


Blurb: 

Gothel is a witch. Punished for the actions of her mother, her choice is simple: either she stands guard over Princess Rapunzel—or she dies. But just because a choice is easy doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. Protecting Rapunzel means watching as the princess lays trapped in a tower, bedridden by hair that is so long and heavy it’s slowly driving her insane. Gothel’s life has become one of imprisonment and solitude as well—until a prince and his handsome squire appear at the tower.

Only one object can cut Rapunzel’s hair and end the curse: a pair of magical shears. But the shears are guarded by the most terrifying witches in the land, who also happen to be Gothel’s aunts. As Gothel and the prince’s squire, Raj Talmund, work to form a plan, she finds herself more and more drawn to the mysterious young man from the Outerlands. Unfortunately, his destiny is far more dangerous than she wants to admit: to save a princess, he must kill the witch who's been forced to guard her.

Grab your free copy here at Amazon.

As part of the giveaway, Tamara will be giving a digital copy of her book The 7th Lie to our lucky winner.


Blurb: 

Agent Sabine Harper is thrilled to receive her first mission—until she learns what it is. Turns out, all she has to do is save the world from certain destruction. And she has two weeks to do it.

Sabine survives her grueling training by the Vortech Agency, but for her first mission, she must protect the world from a devastating solar flare by finding seven energy stones called cerecite. If she refuses, they’ll terminate her father’s life-sustaining cancer treatments.

Sabine is transported to an isolated, advanced civilization hidden beneath a dome in the Bering Sea. While she searches for the cerecite, she assumes the identity of the invalid prince’s caretaker. In time, she finds herself attracted to the prince. But she is perplexed by this strange island’s many mysteries. The air smells mechanical. Every blade of grass is identical. And the island’s dimensions are bigger than they should be. Sabine realizes what Vortech told her may not be true. She may not even know where she really is…

Sabine soon realizes that someone doesn’t want her to leave—and it’s possible they know her true identity. Unless she finds a way home with the cerecite, her father will perish, the world will die—and she’ll die with it.

Contemprary Romance

 The Business Engagement

As a former Harlequin author, Kasi Blake knows romance. She has always added at least some to her books, even to her YA Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Mysteries, from forbidden love to love that was meant to be. Now, she has published her first Contemporary Romance. If you enjoy a little steam in your romance, you will not want to miss The Business Engagement. 



Blurb: One fake engagement can save two reputations... if they can keep their hands off each other. 

When claustrophobic Anna gets trapped in an elevator with hunky Skylar, the last thing she expects is to exit an engaged woman. But Skylar insists tongues will stop wagging when people realize she is marrying him and not sleeping with her boss.

Skylar’s father (her boss) invites her to spend Thanksgiving weekend with his entire family in Vermont, and he won’t take no for an answer. She has no clue how she will get through four days under the same roof with the sexy, arrogant Skylar. Then she discovers they expect her to share a room with her fiancĂ©. Now what?

With her job on the line, will she also be willing to risk her heart?

Pre-order Special .99 cents. Limited Time. Price goes up to $3.99 after the release date.

AMAZON

Kasi Blake Website


Excerpt:

The door shut before she could get her bearings, and the elevator began to descend. That was when she noticed the other occupant, the last person she wanted to be trapped in an elevator with: Griffin’s son.

Skylar gave her the expected customary nod to acknowledge her existence.

Pursing her lips together, she returned the gesture. She didn’t see any reason to pretend they liked each other. Three years ago when she’d joined the firm he had almost destroyed her career within a week. Stubborn and bad-tempered, Skylar had treated her like his personal gopher rather than a colleague with a law degree. Things only got worse when his father put them on the same trial. She’d been second chair, of course, but Skylar wouldn’t listen to a word she said. Every time she opened her mouth he cut her off. Then while she was considering going to his father about the situation, Skylar complained to the man about her. He had almost gotten her fired. She’d been pulled off the trial and put on a case that a monkey could have won.

Since then she’d avoided him like her life depended on it.

She had a second reason to steer clear of him as well, an embarrassing reason. She hated to admit it even to herself, but Skylar Griffin oozed sex appeal. Her skin heated and her lower region pulsated every time she looked at him. Stylishly cropped hair the color of warm sand and eyes crystal blue like the Caribbean Sea reminded her of a much-needed tropical vacation. He worked as hard as she did and always seemed to be in his office. Yet, the deceitful golden brown skin would convince anyone he spent his days on the beach instead of sitting behind a desk. Not to mention, he had a surfer’s body with lean muscle and natural agility.
