"Outlander" Invades L.A.!

Hang on to your kilts!
Thanks to the awesome people over at Starz, I was able take part in the Outlander fan event at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles this weekend.   Diana Gabaldon’s epic book series has been going strong for more than two decades now, and the action and romance is about to come to life on the small screen.  Producer Ron Moore (of Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica fame) is bringing the story to life as a new Starz television series, to air this summer on the network.  …

Heart Breaths by K.K.Hendin

“New Adult” is a frustrating genre for me.  Since I am an “older” Young Adult reader.  A genre that focuses on more mature characters sounds really appealing.   Too frequently, I have found the label “New Adult” meant very violent or highly sexual situations for the older characters.  These two characteristics are the reason I shy away from some of the adult books.  So I have been very picky with what I read in the “New Adult” genre.  I am very pleased to say that Heart Breaths by K.K. Hendin was a pleasant surprise.

Dance the Moon Down by R.L. Bartram

Synopsis from Amazon UK:
In 1910, no one believed there would ever be a war with Germany. Safe in her affluent middle-class life, the rumours held no significance for Victoria either.

After a clandestine romance, they marry in January 1914, …

EXCLUSIVE: Veiled Shadows by Morgan Wylie

EXCLUSIVE: Markings in Alandria
In Alandria, each race of magical beings have a visible mark—a tattoo—that shows itself when the individual comes of age, which is also when their magic reaches its maturity in abilities. The markings all have similar iridescent greenish-blue color for a specific reason (that I can’t tell you yet—Eeek!). Now, of course, most individuals know what race they belong to—it’s not a secret—but it helps to identify between the races. Alandrian markings are called Srontas. There are some other qualities to these markings that will begin to …
