I Want You Back!

I can't keep it a secret any longer, really...I feel like I'm going to burst! So, I have to tell someone and why not YOU!  I mean after all, you're all my close friends, and I can't think of anyone I'd rather tell more than you!  So do you want to know?  Ok then!  Well, for those of you that LOVED "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie" or if you haven't read it yet but are dying to, have I got a treat for you!  Author E. Van Lowe, will be writing a novella entitled "I Want You Back" and posting it on his website!  Mr. Van Lowe describes "I Want You Back" as a "funny, thrilling paranormal ya novella" and after reading a bit of it myself, I couldn't agree more.

To get the novella, all you have to do is subscribe to E. VanLowe's website! After that, you'll be notified everytime a new chapter is posted.  One to two chapters per week with it being at least 10 chapers long!   This project is being done by Mr. Van Lowe as a 'Thank You' to his fans and friends that have supported "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie"!  All artwork is being done by the very talented Tatiana El-Khouri, who has designed all the artwork for his shirts and web pages!  (and all of those are beyond adorable so I really can't wait to see what she comes up with for "I Want You Back")  The title work for this project above is an excellent example.  Tatiana's Web Page can be found HERE.  Stop by, check out her work and show her page a little love as well.  She's really nice and did I mention talented?  I absolutely LOVED "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie".  It was one of my favorites this year!  This is only one of the reasons I'm extremely excited about this new novella!  Mr. Van Lowe is an amazing writer and a wonderful storyteller so this project is sure to be another great read!  I'm already waiting for more!

It's absolutely FREE to subscribe and as I stated above, once you do subscribe, you'll be notified of each and every new chapter!  You can do that by going HERE!  So, if you love Thrillers, YA, or anything Paranormal, I really suggest that you give it a try! 

I saved The BEST for last!  I have a sample of what you'll be getting with "I Want You Back"!  Are you ready? 

I Want You Back

When we meet our 16 year old protagonist, Emy, she tells us:

To begin with, I’m not a nice girl. Don’t get me wrong, I used to be a nice girl. I used to be kind, and helpful, considerate and thoughtful. The kind of girl who went to all of her boyfriend’s games, even though she hates basketball; the kind of girl who helped her boyfriend study for his English final while she should have been studying for her own calculus final—and maybe she would have done better than that C; the kind of girl the boys at school lovingly call, oh, what’s that cute little name they have for us again? Oh, yes—Doormat.

I Want You Back is the story of 16 year-old, Emy Grant, who uses magic to ensnare the boy of her dreams.

I, personally, can't wait to find out more about Emy and what she has instore for us!  Thank you Mr. Van Lowe for sharing this project with us!  I wish you all the best and nothing but continued success!

If you have any questions for Mr. Van Lowe, please feel free to post them in the comments and I'm sure he'll be more than happy to answer them!  If you have a question, but you feel uncomfortable leaving it in the comments section, you can send it to me directly through the 'contact' page and I'll be sure to pass it on!  I have some important links for all of you that are interested.  I'm going to list them below.  All you have to do is click and enjoy!

Huge Haunting Halloween Hachette Giveaway!

Thank you to my wonderful friends at HACHETTE BOOK GROUP, I'm hosting a Huge Halloween GIVEAWAY!  Are you ready for this? THREE of My Lucky Readers will win a Prize Pack of FIVE Books Each! The following books are included in each and every prize package -

The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Sins of the Flesh by Caridad Piñeiro
When Ghosts Speak by Mary Ann Winkowski
BoneMan's Daughters by Ted Dekker
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

Plus After the contest ends, Hachette will select 20 random winners from among all participating blog winners to receive a galley (ARC) of Ted Dekker’s next book, THE BRIDE COLLECTOR! I know...I can hardly STAND IT! HACHETTE KNOW HOW TO DO HALLOWEEN!!

Let me tell you a little bit about each one of the books!

By Kathleen Kent
Available: October 12, 2009

Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. Often at odds with one another, mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria of the trials and the superstitious tyranny that led to the torture and imprisonment of more than 200 people accused of witchcraft. This is the story of Martha's courageous defiance and ultimate death, as told by the daughter who survived.

Kathleen Kent is a tenth generation descendent of Martha Carrier. She paints a haunting portrait, not just of Puritan New England, but also of one family's deep and abiding love in the face of fear and persecution.

Can't Wait? Read an EXCERPT!

By: Caridad Piñeiro
Available: October 27, 2009

Caterina Shaw's days are numbered. Her only chance for survival is a highly experimental gene treatment-a risk she willingly takes. But now Caterina barely recognizes herself. She has new, terrifying powers, an exotic, arresting body-and she's been accused of a savage murder, sending her on the run.

Mick Carrera is a mercenary and an expert at capturing elusive, clever prey. Yet the woman he's hunting down is far from the vicious killer he's been told to expect: Caterina is wounded, vulnerable, and a startling mystery of medical science. Even more, she's a beautiful woman whose innocent sensuality tempts Mick to show her exactly how thrilling pleasure can be. The heat that builds between them is irresistible, but surrendering to it could kill them both . . . for a dangerous group is plotting its next move using Caterina as its deadly pawn.

By: Mary Ann Winkowski
Available: October 1, 2009

Meet Mary Ann Winkowski. She is just like you. She is a married mother of two grown daughters. She lives in a suburban town in Ohio. She goes to church every Sunday.

And she sees and talks to ghosts.

Mary Ann's grandmother noticed her unusual ability when she was practically a baby. By the time Mary Ann was four years old, she was attending neighborhood funerals to broker communication between those who had died and their living loved ones. Word of her extraordinary abilities spread, and Mary Ann was soon accompanying her grandmother on "social calls," visits where Mary Ann would confront earthbound spirits who were sharing homes with the living. This ability stayed with Mary Ann through her adolescence into adulthood, and the stay-at-home mom eventually had a side business: paranormal consultant.

In this remarkable book, Mary Ann tells her incredible story. She talks about the difference between earthbound spirits and those who have crossed over; she tells you why spirits remain on the earthly plane and how long they have before their "White Light' disappears; she shares her most intriguing and infamous tales about the spirits she has encountered. And she divulges how to determine whether your house or your family is haunted--and what to do if there is a ghost around you.

Full of no-nonsense advice, amazing anecdotes, and practical tips for navigating a paranormal phenomenon that is at once unbelievable and awe-inspiring, WHEN GHOSTS SPEAK is a must-read for any person who has ever heard something go bump in the night.

Sound good doesn't it? Read an Excerpt HERE!

By: Ted Dekker
Available: April 14, 2009

They call him BoneMan, a serial killer who's abducted six young women. He's the perfect father looking for the perfect daughter, and when his victims fail to meet his lofty expectations, he kills them by breaking their bones and leaving them to die.

Intelligence officer Ryan Evans, on the other hand, has lost all hope of ever being the perfect father. His daughter and wife have written him out of their lives.

Everything changes when BoneMan takes Ryan's estranged daughter, Bethany, as his seventh victim. Ryan goes after BoneMan on his own.

But the FBI sees it differently. New evidence points to the suspicion that Ryan is BoneMan. Now the hunter is the hunted, and in the end, only one father will stand.

This one...to DIE For! Read HERE!

By: Elizabeth Kostov
Available: September 1, 2009

From Publishers Weekly: Starred Review. Considering the recent rush of door-stopping historical novels, first-timer Kostova is getting a big launch—fortunately, a lot here lives up to the hype. In 1972, a 16-year-old American living in Amsterdam finds a mysterious book in her diplomat father's library. The book is ancient, blank except for a sinister woodcut of a dragon and the word "Drakulya," but it's the letters tucked inside, dated 1930 and addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," that really pique her curiosity. Her widowed father, Paul, reluctantly provides pieces of a chilling story; it seems this ominous little book has a way of forcing itself on its owners, with terrifying results. Paul's former adviser at Oxford, Professor Rossi, became obsessed with researching Dracula and was convinced that he remained alive. When Rossi disappeared, Paul continued his quest with the help of another scholar, Helen, who had her own reasons for seeking the truth. As Paul relates these stories to his daughter, she secretly begins her own research. Kostova builds suspense by revealing the threads of her story as the narrator discovers them: what she's told, what she reads in old letters and, of course, what she discovers directly when the legendary threat of Dracula looms. Along with all the fascinating historical information, there's also a mounting casualty count, and the big showdown amps up the drama by pulling at the heartstrings at the same time it revels in the gruesome. Exotic locales, tantalizing history, a family legacy and a love of the bloodthirsty: it's hard to imagine that readers won't be bitten, too.

October 18, 2009


First and foremost, I'd like to apologize for my lack of blogging lately... or should I say my absence?  I've been going through a tough time with my health again and I'm going to try to make up for me not being here this week.  I've got SO many things coming up!  Really...  You'll be amazed.  But, I really wanted to take a minute just to say "Thank You" to all of you that have emailed, sent a mail through the contact button, called and tweeted just to say "Hello", wondering how I am doing, and wishing me well.  I can't tell you just how touched I am.  The book blogging community is filled with SO many truly wonderful, caring and sweet people ... really, I am over-whelmed with the out pouring of support and kindess.  If there were only more people in the world like all of you.  I have really amazing readers!  So, I'll stop being sappy and teary-eyed now, say a HUGE "Thank You" and  go on with what's coming up! OK?

Up next is the LONG Awaited Contest for the Kindle or Sony e-reader! The Winner will get their choice courtesy of author Matthew Carter (Liquid Soul).  I've got the rules on how you can win that one coming up! So, the button over there to the right...is wrong...it WILL be replaced! You do NOT want to miss being a part of this! Also, for those of you that missed the "Never Slow Dance with a Zombie" Twitter Contest hosted by me and sponsored by the author of that wonderful book E. Van Lowe (your prizes will be out to you THIS week) I have a copy of "Never Slow Dance with a Zombie" and the cutest "Zombie Love" T-Shirt EVER and I do mean EVER! Make sure you keep an eye out for that.  If I don't list it...I decided to keep it for me, it's that Adorable!  Me likey!  : )

For those of you that don't know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  So, I have some Pink items and another special giveaway for this wonderful cause.  The American Cancer Society is VERY Near and Dear to Me! I love that they are the "Official Sponsor of Birthdays" and I'm happy to say that ONE of those birthdays are MINE! While I did not have breast cancer, I feel that a person dealing with any type of this disease can relate to just how important it is to stay positive, keep fighting and to never give up! We WILL One Day Find a Cure!  I have an adorable Pink Curling Iron and Straightening Iron from Barbar coming up that I will review and then ONE Lucky Reader will have the very same item that I received.  If you'd like to know what it looks like, just check HERE!  There will be other items up this month, be sure to look for those!

Now because October is also time for Halloween, I have quite a few spooktacular book reviews and giveaways coming up!  One includes a HAUNTINGLY HUGE HALLOWEEN GIVEAWAY sponsored by Hachette Book Group which includes FIVE Spooky Books for each of THREE Very Lucky Winners!  With that Giveaway, your name will be put in a drawing, and you could be one of 20 people that will  also be receiveing a SIXTH Book which is an ARC of "The Bride Collector" by Ted Dekker! What are the other five? Watch for the Giveaway!

Enough right?  After those, you don't want ANY more Giveaways.... right? I mean, you must be all giveawayed-out! NO! I'm Shocked! Well then, good thing because I've got MORE! 

I'm SO sorry I've been away and I will be making it up to all of you, but I did miss being able to write and talk with all of you!  I'm going to TRY (key word) to post at least one post daily.  If not, it's probably because I'm just not feeling too well that day but I WILL post as I can.

I do have one *little* thing that I'd like to address because I did have a problem with this.  For the MOST part, I (as in ME, Personally) am VERY Rarely responsible for sending out Prizes! With that said, I am also not responsible for any prizes that are NOT received by you once I submit your name to the specific publishers, companes, and/or PR companies. OK?  I am SURE they will ALL send what's promised to you.  Just give them a little time. If you feel you've been waiting a LONG time (like 8-10 weeks) then feel free to drop me a line about a prize and I'll see what I can do.  I have never come across a company that didn't send the prize.  I just thought I'd add that as my *disclaimer* to all of you lucky lucky prize winners!  In other words, I put up my HONEST review based on either the book/product that I recieved and then I pass along the books and products that are promised in a giveaway to you!  Most of the time this only includes me sending your name along. IF FOR SOME REASON I (as in ME, Personally) HAVE THE PRIZE HERE - I WILL MAIL THAT OUT TO YOU AS SOON AS I CAN!  If I'm a late, I do apologize, but things come up and the day it gets mailed out to you, I promise you will get an email from me! If I have the prize you WILL have your prize!  Now that all that has been discussed, it will not be brought up again...it's listed on the "Giveaway Policy" Page which is tabbed at the top of my blog!

I hope you're ready to WIN...because I'm getting ready for the holidays which are my favorite time of the year and THIS PRINCESS is in the GIVING MOOD!  Thank you ALL again!  I'm a *bit late* with "Saturday Spotlight" but I'll see if I can get it up! If not, I do have some winners!  Sorry for the long-winded post, it was MUCH needed!

If YOU have any questions, comments and/or concerns, PLEASE feel free to contact me! I'm always ONE CLICK AWAY! After all, without your input, this blog cannot continue to grow! So -- Preach to the Princess!!  Also, I want to suggest - that means strongly but you don't have to do it - that you sign up for email subscriptions or my feed so you don't miss your name when you win and important posts that are listed.  I have some ROYAL GIVEAWAYS coming up that are NOT TO BE MISSED!!

A Highlander's Temptation Blog Tour Giveaway!

A Highlander's Temptation
By: Sue-Ellen Welfonder
Publisher: Forever
Available: 10/1/2009
Category: Fiction/Romance
ISBN: 9780446195300
Pages: 400

About the Book:

Darroc MacConacher spends sleepless nights dreaming of a raven-haired beauty who makes him ache with desire. Then his dream comes true: the lady with her lush curves and fair skin appears shipwrecked on his shores. Darroc is immediately drawn to her strength and beauty, and from the moment she lays eyes on this powerful, broad-shouldered warrior, Lady Arabella MacKenzie knows she'll never want another man.

But theirs is a forbidden love. The MacKenzies drove the MacConachers from their lands and destroyed their honor. Now, Darroc can use this sapphire-eyed seductress to shatter his foes. Yet how can he deny the passion that burns between him and Arabella, and ruin the one woman who touches his very soul?

Author Bio:

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a card-carrying Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent (free) trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty year career with the airlines. Bi-lingual, she flew international all those years, working her flights as foreign language speaker. Her flying career allowed her to see the world, but it was always to Scotland that she returned.

Now a full-time writer, she’s quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She spent fifteen years living in Europe and used that time to explore as many castle ruins, medieval abbeys, and stone circles as possible. Anything ancient, crumbling, or lichened caught her eye. She makes annual visits to Scotland, insisting they are a necessity as each trip gives her inspiration for new books.

Proud of her own Hebridean ancestry, she belongs to two clan societies: the MacFie Clan Society and the Clan MacAlpine Society. In addition to Scotland, her greatest passions are medieval history, the paranormal, and dogs. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a four-hundred-and-fifty year old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

Sue-Ellen is married and currently resides with her husband and Jack Russell Terrier in Florida. Readers can learn more about her and the world of her books at: www.welfonder.com.
