Release Blitz: Foreign to You by Jeremy Martin + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Foreign to You by Jeremy Martin

The harmony between humans and fianna, a species of shapeshifting deer, begins to wither as racial tensions and deeply rooted resentment turns violent.

Ruthless hunter Finn Hail and prophesied liberator Adelaide may be heroes to their own species, but they are enemies to each other. With war on the horizon, the reluctant pair must team up to find the most elusive of prey: the god of the Forest.

As enemies press in from all sides, true intentions begin to show. For Finn to save the boy he cares for most, he might need to aim his gun at the very god he seeks. And Adelaide, with her festering hatred for mankind, will have to determine if peace holds true salvation for her people.

Release Blitz: Diamond Heart by M.A. Hinkle + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Diamond Heart by M.A. Hinkle

Gareth has a problem. He got expelled. Now he and his twin brother, Morgan, have to start over at an artsy new private school, and it’s all Gareth’s fault. Not to mention Morgan’s crippling social anxiety and Gareth’s resting jerk face aren’t making them any friends, and their father is furious with him. Gareth could live with this, but Morgan’s mad at him too, and Morgan is the only person alive who can make Gareth feel guilty. 

Good thing Gareth has a plan. Cute, bubbly Felix, a student at their new school, has a crush on Morgan, and they both want to act in their school’s production of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Gareth figures it’s the perfect way to help Morgan come out of his shell and set him up with Felix. Then, maybe Morgan will forgive him, and Gareth can go back to not caring about anything or anyone.

But Gareth has another problem. He’s been cast as Oberon, and Felix is Titania. Oh, and Morgan doesn’t like Felix back. And maybe Gareth is enjoying the play and making new friends and having a good time at his new school. And maybe—just maybe—he’s got a crush on Felix. Can Gareth keep up his tough-guy act long enough to repair his relationship with Morgan, or will Felix get caught in the fallout of Gareth’s dumb schemes?

Honorary Blogger M.D. Neu: What’s Coming Next + Excerpt & Giveaway!

What’s Coming Next

by M.D. Neu

I want to start by thanking The Blogger Girls for having me here today on my third stop of my Blog Tour for A New World-Contact (Book 1). Considering this is the first book in a planned four book series I thought I would share where I am in the series writing process and what’s coming up next.

Now that Contact has been released, I’ve started working on the edits with my editor for book two, Conviction. Conviction picks up right where Contact ends and I’m thrilled that it will be released so quickly after Contact.  Conviction will hit the stores on March 11, 2019 so you won’t have long to wait for the next installment in the series. The reason Contact and Conviction are going to be released so close together is that the two books were originally planned to be a signal novel. Instead of my amazing publisher, NineStar Press, making me cut the novel down to fit the max word count of 120,000 they agreed to break the book into two parts. Contact comes in right around 70,000 words and Conviction has a word count right about 100,000. The next couple of months should be an exciting time for anyone who loves science fiction.

As planned book three in the series is called Conspiracy and I’m pleased to announce it is complete. I’m working on my final edits now. This novel has not yet been picked up by NineStar Press, but I’m hopeful. Keep your fingers crossed.

Book four, which is yet unnamed, will be the conclusion to the series (at least that is my plan). I have the story partially outlined, but no writing has started. This novel is farther out in the pipeline, but it is being worked on.

With respect to the A New World series, four books is all I have planned at this time, but there are two ideas lingering in the back of my mind. Both are prequels and deal with the Nentraee exclusively. I think the ideas are amazing, but currently they sit on the back burner simmering away.

I have one additional project slated for release this year. The novel is called T.A.D. The Angle of Death and it comes out on June 24, 2019. For now that’s all, however I continue to move forward with new ideas and of course new worlds.

Release Blitz: Stalker/s by L.J. Hasbrouck + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Stalker/s by L.J. Hasbrouck

Brian Jameson doesn’t even get a chance to pick a college before a worldwide pandemic breaks out—and his home is Ground Zero. After losing his parents and sister in a whirlwind of devastation, Brian’s war-veteran grandfather takes him under his wing. But when desperate looters attack Brian’s new home, he and his grandfather must flee into a wintery Midwestern wasteland now populated by intelligent infected known as “Stalkers.”

These ghoulish creatures don’t shamble in hordes—they hide in the darkness waiting to strike, teeth bared in ghastly grins. And they laugh while they’re ripping you to shreds.

But with his grandfather’s training, Brian makes it to the home of his estranged childhood friends, twins Louis and Eva. And Brian gets a chance to experience something else he nearly missed: falling in love. Drawn to the determined—and ruthless—Louis, Brian escapes with him in search of an island paradise away from the relentless snow and infected. 

But even if they make it there, it may not be the haven they’re hoping for.

Author Q&A: L.A. Ashton + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Interview Banner

Please welcome L.A. Ashton to The Blogger Girls!

If you could trade places with one of your characters, who would it be and why?

Aranck from my novel “Echoes”, a thousand year old Native American vampire. He’s seen and done so much, and he still has a good heart.

If you could sequester yourself for a week somewhere and just focus on your writing, where would you go and what would the environment be like?

Trees and hills and wildlife. A cabin tucked away behind green next to a river. Nature always makes my imagination sing.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

Quiet.

What internet site do you surf to the most?

Ugh. Twitter.

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three author guests be and why?

Laurell K. Hamilton, because she shaped my mind and interests from a young age, and is in a queer poly relationship. She’s a very interesting woman, and I’ve grown to love her more and more as I’ve aged.

Drew Karpyshyn, a master of character work and action who needs to sit down and be praised by me for at least an hour straight.

Ted Chiang, because his brain works in such a vastly different way than mine, and I want to know more.  

When you got your very first manuscript acceptance letter, what was your initial reaction and who was the first person you told?

Shock. I didn’t believe it until I made others read it. It still doesn’t feel real, somehow. The first one I told was my partner, and then I sent the screenshot to all my close friends and just trembled in an excited ball on the floor.
