ACFW New Releases–August 2017

Hey guys!! I’m super excited to share all the amazing things I learned at Realm Makers–but first I’ve got some books to recommend. *cartwheel and squeal* Here are the latest releases from fellow ACFW authors. Look for my post later this week about Realm Makers, including pictures! Yippee! 

August 2017 New Releases

More in-depth descriptions of these books can be found on the ACFW Fiction Finder website.

Action/Adventure:

Imperfect Lies by Elizabeth Noyes — When another woman emerges from the past to claim Mallory Cameron’s happily ever after, she cuts her losses and sets out to find a headline-worthy story to launch her journalism career. She embarks on a whirlwind journey that takes her across the United States, to the blue-green waters of the Caribbean, on to sunny Mexico, and deep into the dangerous parts of Africa where terror reigns. James Evers turned his back on a life of power and privilege to carve a place in the world for himself. Now that he’s finally discovered his niche as a small-town sheriff and found the woman he wants in his future, a past indiscretion struts in on high heels and sends his newfound love fleeing headlong into peril. His mission: neutralize old enemies, defuse new threats, resolve past mistakes, settle family disputes, and—most importantly—find and rescue his woman from terrorists before the unthinkable happens. (Action/Adventure from Write Integrity Press)

Contemporary Romance:

The Bachelor’s Unexpected Family by Lisa Carter — Young widow Kristina Montgomery moves to Kiptohanock, Virginia, hoping it will give her and her teenage son, Gray, a fresh start. She longs for the peace and quiet only a small town can provide. But her plans are thwarted by her new neighbor, Canyon Collier, a former Coast Guard pilot and a crop duster. Gray is instantly drawn to the pilot and his teenage niece, Jade—and Kristina’s not far behind. She and Canyon are soon bonding over parenting their charges and their spark becomes undeniable. Could it be that the spirited pilot is just what Kristina needs to teach her heart to soar again? (Contemporary Romance from Love Inspired [Harlequin])

Gift of the Magpie by Zoe M. McCarthy — Amanda Larrowe’s lack of trust sabotages her relationships. The English teacher and award-winning author of middle-grade adventure books for boys has shut off communication with friends and family to meet her January 2 book deadline. Now, in the deepest snow accumulation Richmond, Virginia, has experienced in years, Camden Lancaster moves in across the street. After ten years, Amanda’s heart still smarts from the humiliating aftermath of their perfect high-school Valentine’s Day date. Camden may have transformed into a handsome, amiable man, but his likeability doesn’t instill trust in Amanda’s heart. When Cam doesn’t recognize her on their first two encounters, she thinks it’s safe to be his fair-weather neighbor. Boy is she wrong. (Contemporary Romance from Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas) Continue reading

Book Review / Preview: ‘Transfixion’ by J. Giambrone

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced copy of this YA Sci-Fi Thriller, so I could give it a fair review. Womp! Super excited that this was the exact genre of book that I love best! 🙂 I dove right in to “Transfixion” by J. Giambrone and couldn’t wait to get started!

Screen Shot 2014-09-06 at 7.51.08 PM

The Plot: It’s nothing short of the end of the world.

Someone has weaponized the broadcast spectrum – gazing upon the transmission is enough to steal your mind.

Kaylee Colton faces a technological Armageddon when suburbia shatters into civil war. All alone, and unable to speak, Kaylee will need to fight to survive and transcend her own fears if she is to stand against these enigmatic forces of destruction.

My review:

The short: 3 Stars – Interesting plot but it fell short in a couple areas that I couldn’t shake from my mind as I plowed through. This really disappointed me, since I wanted to loooove this book and it did have me hooked for the first half.

The long: OK, let’s start with what I liked about it! (Warning: spoilers!)

I loved the actual plot of this book. I felt that it was different enough from other YA apocalyptic books but still very believable. I will agree with other reviews, that this author’s writing style is different, although I appreciated his writing style and liked how he left the reader questioning what would come next. I became engrossed in the story of Kaylee Colton – a girl gone mute when things went south – and whether she would succeed in not only surviving the apocalypse, but if she’d also be understood by others, so she could help in the cause to end the war.

Sneak Peek Sunday – ‘Now I Sleep’ Novella Series Book 5

Happy Sunday! The next book in my novella series, “Now I Sleep”, comes out this coming weekend! Who counting down with me? To boost your excitement, I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek of one of the scenes.

gif-happy-dance

 

Have you finished your happy dance, yet? Ok! 🙂 Having said that, this scene is from the middle of the book, so it won’t help you if you’re dying to know what happened next after book 4. Sorry! You’ll have to buy it to continue the saga of Sadie and Delylah. Many of you have told me how much you love the character of Nolan, who is minor and doesn’t play into some of the books very much. To appease those fans, this scene will be an interaction between Sadie and her brother Nolan. *Warning to those unfamiliar with Nolan: think of the most sarcastic person you know… then add two more spoonfuls 😉 I actually see that he resembles ‘Adam’ from the Disney show ‘Lab Rats’ (the below clip), quite well.*

I can tell you the theme for book 5 is different than most of the other books, and I’m hoping someone can catch on to the theme and let me know right away, what they think it is! I’d love to see who figures it out, first! And, of all the books you’ve read so far, this book will end on the worst. cliffhanger. ever. that will keep you biting your nails until September, when the final installment of this series comes out!

Hope you can keep busy next month, so I don’t get too many messages begging for the ending! 🙂

Until then, happy reading and enjoy this excerpt from Book 5 of ‘Now I Sleep’, out August 31, 2014.  Continue reading
