I am so excited I’m doing a happy dance in my tiara, waving my wand…Okay, you get the idea.

My friend and fellow writer, Aria Glazki, has her first novel coming out with Swoon Romance in December 2014!

We met doing a blogflash challenge a few years ago. I don’t know if I’ve even mentioned this to Aria, but her profile picture (above) always made me think that I was good friends with the Little Mermaid!

In 2013, our poems were included in the anthology, Scripting Change- Seeing Past Sickness, where 100 percent of the profits were donated to a scholarship foundation. In fact, there’s still time to contribute to this year’s anthology: Opening Worlds with Words. Please take a look and consider donating a written work.

So this is it…the BIG cover reveal for Aria Glazki’s, MENDING HEARTSTRINGS. I’m thrilled to show it off to y’all….

Mending Heartstrings by Aria Glazki
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: December 2nd 2014
Genres: Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Kane’s a country singer who’s tangled with too many deceitful women. He’s learned his lesson: girls are for flirting and fun; emotions are for his music. But after spending a night with an earnest woman unlike any he’s known, he can’t force her out of his mind. So he goes in search of the woman he knows only as “Elle.”On her last night in Nashville, the staunchly pragmatic Sabella found herself in a situation more suited to a romance novel than reality. Swept away, she ignored her rigidly self-imposed rules, succumbing to the fantasy just this once. But she knows real-world relationships have nothing in common with their fictionalized portrayals. When Kane unexpectedly shows up at her Portland apartment, she must choose between the practical truths she has learned and the desire for a passionate love she has struggled to suppress.

Despite the distance, Kane’s tour schedule, and their meddling friends, both are drawn to the chance for a romance neither quite believes is possible.

AUTHOR BIO:

Aria’s writing story started when her seventh-grade English teacher encouraged her to submit a class assignment for publication.  That piece was printed, and let’s just say, she was hooked!

Since then, Aria has run a literary magazine, earned her degree in Creative Writing (as well as in French and Russian literatures), and been published in a few collections.  Though her first kiss technically came from a bear cub, and no fairytale transformation followed, Aria still believes magic can happen when the right people come together – if they don’t get in their own way, that is.

Other than all things literary, Aria loves spending time with her family, including her two unbearably adorable nieces. She also dabbles in painting, dancing, playing violin, and, given the opportunity, Epicureanism.

Review of HEART SEARCH: FOUND, Book 2 by Carlie M A Cullen

29 Jul

This is no ordinary vampire romance!

I’m a big fan of Carlie’s, Heart Search: Lost, the first book in the Heart Search trilogy, and can happily say Heart Search: Found, Book II did not disappoint.

It’s difficult to discuss without spoilers, but suffice it to say…

The story picks up right where Book One left off, and adds mysterious layers to an already rich story.

The many characters are interesting and gifted, and range in age from 10 months to 600 years! Ominous twists and turns continue to creep in as Remy’s and Joshua’s love story evolves in a ‘different’ way.

Ms. Cullen has a knack with unexpected plot twists that will keep readers on the edge of their seats!

If you haven’t done so already, go ahead and read Book I, “Lost” to appreciate the full intensity of the plot and its nuances. Then pick up “Found” and continue on a fascinating ride through this dark paranormal saga.

I’ve got a feeling we’re in for a TO-DIE-FOR Book III!

Check out this awesome trailer for HEART SEARCH: FOUND! It’s narrated by Ms. Cullen, who discusses her trilogy and provides interesting back story to boot. It’s one of the best I’ve seen, which starts at the beginning of it all and sets the mood of the stories just right. :0)

Just click the cover:

Cover Blurb-

One bite started it all . . .

Another mysterious disappearance sparks a frightening chain of events for Remy and her family. Events foretold come to pass, and more strange and alarming occurrences assail her life. Where can she turn?

Coven politics continue to threaten Joshua’s existence, but an even bigger menace looms . . .

And Remy’s life hangs in the balance – can Joshua save her?

Fate still toys with mortals and immortals alike, as hearts torn apart by darkness confront perils which could lead to their doom.
