Cover Reveal – Hidden Treasures by M. A. Abraham

Hello and welcome!

I am excited to reveal the cover I created for book 2 of the Drakaina series. I hope you like it.

They are hunted from the moment of their birth, their parents, and all of the Drakes will fight to the death to protect them.

Sequestered on an island with the young girls, Nonnie teaches these Hidden Treasures.

They will grow powerful as they age, enough to challenge the world, and their mates, as they forge new paths into the future for their people.

For they are Drakaina, and they will survive.

If you read ‘Vengeance Has A Daughter‘, you know this book will be another exciting journey in the Drakaina’ lives’s world. Or maybe you listened to it? If you didn’t, what are you waiting for? Narrated by Jennifer Blom who did an amazing job.

I guess it is so much easier to create a cover when you read the story and I can tell you that it is a great read and loooove the ending. I can’t wait for the audiobook! There will be an audiobook, right Ms. Abraham?

I do not have a release date yet, but will make sure you are informed and maybe will get to chat with somebody from that world 😉

Cover Reveal – Trevor and the Giant Problem

Hello and welcome!

I am excited to be part of the design and reveal of the cover for the debut book by Alexander and Erin Cristofoli!

Check it out!

Trevor is excited when he receives an unexpected gift from his Grampa, but when he finds out what it is, his excitement quickly fades away.

An old lamp.

It looks pretty ordinary to him. But, as Trevor falls asleep, he soon finds out that all is not as it seems.

Thrown into a strange world, Trevor finds himself alone. To make matters worse, he must face one giant problem.

Release Day: December 5th, 2022
Genre: Children’s Adventure
Age range: 6-8 yrs

I also got to chat with them, read on and find out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome Alexander and Erin!

Do you have a nickname?

When I’m gaming, I go by GWA (Gacha with Alex). My mom uses her own name.

What makes you laugh out loud?

Laughing out loud. Just kidding. My friends and playing board games with our family.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?

I enjoy a nice lavender or sweet pea. My mom loves vanilla, cinnamon rolls and freshly baked bread.

Favourite place to spend time in.

I spend most of my time in our computer room. Mom likes to hang out in the living room with our dog

Favourite book and why.

My favourite book is Keeper of the Lost Cities as it is a mix between Harry Potter and D&D. My mom likes reading Harry Potter.

Favourite movie and why.

My mom likes Labyrinth and I like The Princess Bride.

How did the idea of the book come about?

I just thought that writing books instead of reading them would be a fun change of pace. My mom was trying to find a new idea to write about, so we worked together to make this.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?

I’d say around 6 to 8 years old

What is next in your writing?

We plan to make this a full series for kids to enjoy and read.

Thank you for the chat and looking forward to read your book and your future journey in the book world.

All the best!

Cover Reveal – The Chameleon Effect by Joe Arden

Hello and welcome!

I have some exciting news!!!

The Chameleon Effect is the debut solo novel from acclaimed, award-winning romance narrator, Joe Arden, coming September 13, 2022. A secret identity romance from the man with the secret identity! Pre-order yours now!

Pre-order HERE
Audio pre-order coming soon and I will do an update when I know the date.
Add it to your Goodreads TBR list.

Vote for The Chameleon Effect on Goodreads Most Anticipated Reads in September 2022!

You can expect the following from The Chameleon Effect:

  • RomCom
  • Hilarious banter
  • Hollywood vibes
  • Male POV
  • Strong/Sassy Heroine
  • All the feels
  • Enough heat to melt your kindle/earbuds


Lights. Camera. Action…

I’ve got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.

But Los Angeles is full of hot, young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.

Well, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.

So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I’m not—goodbye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.

‘Liam’ and his talent with accents is enough to get my foot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.

Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.

On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.

As my — I mean, Liam’s — budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.

While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.

Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard… Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I’m wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won’t see coming.

This first-person, male-POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.

Cover designed by Enchanting Romance Designs

I love his voice and on my ‘eargasm’ list. I can’t wait for the audiobook!

Cover Reveal – Blood Vows – Surprise Chat with the twins DAYUM

I hadn’t even had a chance to get out of my vehicle when a couple of men walked up to the side of the car, and boy were they easy on the eyes. I haven’t seen bodies on men like these since I met Thorn. Bite me, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to check them out. Tall, dark, and handsome… triple check. Eyes you could get lost in… check. Shoulders like a linebacker… yup, and double yup. Abs you could use as a scrub board… and then some. Narrow hips, large hands… gotta love a man with large… hands.

“Lady Enikö?” A deep rumbling voice spoke from outside of the window. Did I dare roll down the window and talk to these men? They exuded danger from every pore.

I sigh, might as well, I take one more discerning look at them and my hands begin to itch. Ahem. Right. Talk, no touching.

Anyway, I have to get out of the car anyway, so I open the door and exit as I ask, “Who wants to know?”

Both men bow as they introduce themselves.

“I am Lyon.”

“And I am his brother, Dyon.”

“We hale from the story of ‘Blood Vows’ your friend is writing at the moment and have a few questions.”

“I am not sure I can help with those, M.A. hasn’t given me much insight into the story beyond saying she is past the middle of the book.”

“And she just threw me a curve, just when I felt I had reached my objective.” Lyon grumbles.

“Yes, she tends to do things like that.”

“Could you get her to make things a little easier on my brother?” Dyon asks.

“I don’t know if that is going to help,” I admit.

“I can make it worth your while,” Dyon suggests with a purr to his voice.

Thoughts of satin sheets and sweaty bodies run through my mind and I correct myself. Down girl, remember, Athïan. “Sorry,” (boy am I sorry, and in more ways than one). I am surrounded by too much testosterone. “I am already taken.”

Lyon snickers at Dyon and I get the impression he would stick his tongue out at his brother given the chance and the right place. To me he bows and speaks, “Well, at least consider helping me. Kayla has not been an easy person to win over, and I would like to keep her to myself, not allow others to steal her from me.”

He hands me an envelope, then they leave. I check out how they look walking away from me too. Dyon looks over his shoulder, and winks.

I open the envelope and … SQUEEEE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If your thought was ‘DAYUM’, we think alike 😜 Those two would make a gal forget her name if she lets her guard down.

Lyon and Dyon hail from the WIP of M. A. Abraham and what I told the gorgeous men is true, she didn’t tell me much and my hands are itching to get my hands on the finished story. From what I read so far, I think it will be one to rival ‘Aura’, which you might know it is my fave from the author’s standalone stories.

I am happy to show you what Lyon handed to me. It is the cover of ‘Blood Vows’ and you see it here first.

Brother and sister, they made promises and would honor their dying father’s last wish.
Kayllan
The young Prince who became King at an early age. Unknown to anyone, he made a pact with his best friend, a blood vow not even death could break.
Kayla
Born twice royal, she will become Queen, trained to rule a nation, also to become some man’s wife. She never expected to make promises to a dying brother. She would do as he decreed, and do so proudly, but she didn’t know the full extent of it all.
Lyon
First born in his lands, he rules as King, and he has vowed to protect Kayllan’s sister, to marry her and rule at her side if Kayllan dies early. He never expected her to be a beauty, she astounds him with her inner strength.
She knows nothing of his vow to her brother, but he vows she will, and then she will be his.

Isn’t it beautiful? Created by Cora Graphics, whose talents are known all over the world. I know it will fit the story well.

No release date yet, but you will know when I do. Make sure you sign up to get my posts in your inbox.

Sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date. You can also sign up to my blog and get the news directly in your inbox.

NEW RELEASE! Kaleidoscope Hearts Vol. 4

Hello and welcome!

I am so happy to be celebrating the release of this anthology that has stories from some of my fave authors and new authors that I am looking forward to discover.

THANK YOU Grace Augustine, Linda Boulanger, Rochelle Bradley, Kevin Chapman, Aliya DalRae, Jennifer Daniels, Andi Lawrencovna, Catherine Marcum, Sabrina Rue, Kali Willows, SE Winters, & Mary Woldering for sharing your stories with us. It is an awesome gift that your readers will love! I hope many more readers will discover your books.

Kaleidoscope Hearts – Volume 4

Around every corner and even right in front of you, love is spinning fabulous stories.

Take a walk on the wild side and revisit that friendship from childhood ready to grow into something new. Find that place where love comes in the form of a tiny blossom with a secret hidden inside the petals.

In this spinning collection of stories, every varied shade of love is explored, from that found in the twirl of a skirt on a ballroom floor, to a ghost whose love is in question, or as a side effect of the magic from a broken heart.

Best friends and bridesmaids, nurses and their exes, you can’t escape true love, even if it is only a wish in the heart, or a prayer on a dark wintry road.

As the old phrase goes: Love doesn’t cost a thing, or maybe it does, and sometimes that cost can be one of life and death, or perhaps even a supernatural “un-death” if the fates collide.

Sometimes, love is like looking in a mirror, or wishing you could go back and live that love over again, and in these pages, twelve amazing authors will take you on a journey that will leave you longing for more.

Fans of Lynsay Sands, Nicholas Sparks, Debbie Macomber, & Kresley Cole won’t want to miss this breathless collection of romance in all its swirling colors.

Take a romp through the flowers, or wind a path through the woods. Weave your way through these adventures that are at the heart of all it means to Love!

Maureen Winters confronts her childhood demons and finds healing through a magical
and wild child who was once her friend – Now that they are both grown…

MARY R. WOLDERING is an author, artisan, art historian, madwoman, visionary and devoted wife to Dr. Jackie F. Woldering, mother of Ruth and Thom and grandmother of five. She writes Visionary Fiction with a focus on Ancient Egyptian Mythology. What if the Gods and Goddesses of mythology were really just super-talented people full of very human passions and shortcomings? When they appeared in different legends, these various archetypes were like threads woven into the tapestry of various eras and cultures. Now, she has taken this idea and created her own tapestry of the divinely human and woven it through all time and space. Mary has been known to dabble in all genres of writing and has recently ventured into the area of Romantic Fiction.

Returning to her family home after a bitter breakup, Hedy Dulce’s new life holds more than she bargained for when she finds herself nearly naked on the floor in front of a strange man.

Born and raised in Toronto, KALI WILLOWS now resides in the exquisite eastern Ontario countryside where she enjoys the serenity of nature. When she isn’t busy being the married mother of two, or a Public Relations & Communications Specialist & Event Manager, she shadows worlds of paranormal passion & intrigue. Kali strives to create emotional, compelling stories and characters you can’t help but love, hate and cheer for. Captivated by her love of dragons, gargoyles and everything paranormal, she pens these delightful creatures into epic tales of romance and adventure and often infuses her passions of martial arts, music and ironic twists even she didn’t foresee. A good cup of tea with the crackling fire gets her creative juices flowing in the wee hours of the night, when the house is quiet and she can type away to her heart’s desire.

When your best friend is marrying someone else, hoping he’ll marry you instead only happens in fairy tales, right?

LINDA BOULANGER is an award-winning author of historical romance. While her books are mostly set in the Medieval era and Ancient Worlds, you’ll often find time travel, dragons, angels, fairies, and other mystical beings mixed into her stories. Having grown up in the magical land of Alaska, her imagination was her refuge when winter days got too cold or she needed to hide away from overly large mosquitos in the summer. It was during those days that the storyteller was born, though it would take many years, and several hat changes, before she realized the voices in her head were characters screaming for their stories to be written. When not traipsing into imaginary historical lands or designing book covers, Linda can be found spending time with her family in NE Oklahoma’s Green Country.

Driving home from her twelve hour shift in the ER, Hazel Thomas can not see a thing. That is until her ex, Trent Maxwell pulls up behind her. Will she ever escape the storm ranging from the weather or the one from her heart?

JENNIFER DANIELS lives in Upstate, NY with her husband and son. She enjoys spending time with her family, fishing, camping, kayaking, and being on the water. Jennifer is a former nurse and for several years was very active with her local volunteer fire and rescue department. She is a paranormal/fantasy junkie, loves to read most things in those genres and is a binge-watching Hallmark Channel fan. Writing was never on her radar until her son shared with her that he wanted to write a book. So, together they began and that was when Jennifer decided to give it a try on her own. And that was how the Opalla Series was born.

She saved his life, then stole his heart… too bad she has to die.

What started as therapy has turned into a full time passion for ALIYA DALRAE. The fictional town of Fallen Cross, Ohio, and its cast of characters, both human and paranormal, reside in her imagination, and she brings their stories of love, loss and redemption to life in her Jessica Sweet Trilogy, and The Fallen Cross Pack and Fallen Cross Legion Series.

A thirtieth birthday filled with dancing and surprises.

Editor and internationally known author, GRACE AUGUSTINE, was raised in Montana. Her hobbies include music, acrylic painting, container planting, and old romantic movies. She resides in Iowa and is the mother of two adult sons and an adorable feline.

Meeting her granddaughters fiancé for the first time was making her see double.

CATHERINE MARCUM is the alter ego of C.J. Baty Author. While C.J.’s writing brings male/male love to light, Catherine is about women over 50 who deserve a little romance, love, and sex in their lives. Go figure. C.J. writes about men with flaws who find love and happiness in the arms of other men with a little mystery added into the stories. She was shocked when Catherine started to make an appearance in her writing. The only thing they have in common is their love of the mountains, the belief that love is love, and the need to tell the stories in their heads. You can find both CJ and Catherine at her website

While paroling for feral supernatural beasts, Ele stumbles across Micah, a not-so-average human who is being hunted by an evil force.

ROCHELLE K. BRADLEY puts an artistic spin on everything she does but there are two things she fails at miserably: 1. Cooking (seriously, she can burn water) 2. Sewing (buttons immediately fall back off) She loves baking and makes a mean BTS (Better than Sex) cake. When in observation mode she is quiet, however, her mouth is usually open with an encouraging glass-is-half-full pun or, quite possibly, her foot. She is a Bearcat, a Buckeye, an interior decorator, and fluent in sarcasm. In 2008, when her youngest entered Kindergarten, she decided to get the stories out of her head. Midway through her first novel, hurricane Ike (yes, a hurricane in Ohio) rendered the laptop useless with a nine-day power outage. She didn’t give up but continued to pursue her dream. Every November Rochelle takes on the challenge of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org) where she endeavors to write 50,000 words in thirty days. You can often hear her cheering the Dayton area Wrimos (those who join her in this crazy pursuit). Rochelle shares her home with a big black cat, an itty-bitty orange tiger kitty, her daughter, her son, and her Prince. She loves to connect with readers. You can find her on Facebook (search for Author Rochelle Bradley), Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

ANDI LAWRENCOVNA lives in a small town in Northeast Ohio where she was born and raised. After finishing her education, she decided that it was time to let a little fantasy rule her life for a while.

Moreno’s by Elizabeth Reyes – Cover Reveal

Hello and welcome!

Here is the cover for a story coming soon from one of my fave authors. I am looking forward to reading it.

They’d been sweethearts since grade school and by high school knew they were soulmates. Nothing would keep Alejandro Moreno from marrying Isabella as soon as she was of age. Making no bones about it, he made sure everyone in el pueblo who might get ideas about her, knew he’d set his very respectable claim on her.Until the unthinkable happens.How long do you wait for your soulmate? Months, years, forever? Or do you eventually move on?

Here is an excerpt from the book, where Isabella, the heroine, has just overheard a girl flirting with the hero, Alejandro. For years they’ve referred to each other as just friends because they’re too young for more but she’s silently always hoped/felt there was more to their friendship…

Despite the gesture and his sweet words, her head was back to what she’d been thinking before he handed her the candy. Trying to hide the jealousy she still felt over the possibility of him hanging out with Imelda at the dance that weekend Isabella glanced away when their eyes met.

As usual he picked up on her disquiet immediately because when she turned back to him, his eyes narrowed. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing.” She lifted and dropped her shoulder.

The girl waiting on her esquites from Cido interrupted Isabella’s thoughts with her loud question. “How come I never see you guys at the rio parranda’s Saturday nights anymore?”

“Because those river hangouts are for middle school kids,” Cido said taking her money. “We’re preparatoria men now. We’ll be at the dance this Saturday instead.”

Isabella rolled her eyes. Ever since Cido and Alejandro started high school in the city he acted like he was all grown up. It’s why it was so hilarious when he made his dad mad and he was called a clueless mocoso in front of everyone.

Another group of kids walked up to the vending cart and ordered cobs from Alejandro. One of the guys in the group, Juan Carlos, a boy in Isabella’s class was immediately smiling when he saw her.

“Hey, Isabella. You going to the parranda this Saturday?”
Alejandro noticeably slowed his slathering of butter on the cob and eyed Juan Carlos, but then went back to focusing on what he was doing.

Juan Carlos hadn’t lived in Pueblo De Oro long enough to know about her and Alejandro’s history. Taking advantage of this, Isabella smiled feeling evil. But it was a necessary evil.

“I might, since I’m not allowed to dance yet.”

Juan Carlos smiled even bigger. “I’ve only been to a couple since I moved here, and they’ve been cool. I looked for you both times.”

“Yeah, I haven’t been to any lately. But I have been before and you’re right, they are fun. I’ll try and make it out this weekend.”

“Good.” He smiled sheepishly. “Last two times I brought my guitara. I’ll bring it again and play for you.”

As Alejandro finished preparing Juan Carlos’s corn and then his friends, Isabella asked Juan Carlos more about his guitar playing. She knew Alejandro as well as he knew her, to instantly pick up on his change in demeanor during the conversation she continued to have with Juan Carlos. Even if he hadn’t said a word throughout.

Isabella made sure to lay it on thick and did a little extra giggling at anything even remotely silly Juan Carlos said. When Alejandro was done with their food, she realized she may’ve laid it on a little too thick because Juan Carlos was suddenly a little too confident.

“So, what are you doing now?”

“Um . . .” She glanced at Alejandro whose intense glare practically burned a hole through her, then she turned back to Juan Carlos. “Nothing. Just hanging out.”

“Come hang with me at the placita. We’re just—”

“She can’t,” Alejandro said making her heart spike.

Juan Carlos’s eyes narrowed in obvious confusion. He glanced at Alejandro, then Isabella and back at Alejandro again. “Why not?”

“Because she’s hanging out here,” he said simply then added. “With me.”

It took a moment for Juan Carlos to understand Alejandro’s attitude, but once he did, he nodded, even as his friend chuckled. Lifting his elote at Alejandro, he then tipped his bangora at Isabella but said nothing before walking away.

Alejandro eyed Juan Carlos then turned to Isabella. “I’ll be there with you at the parranda this weekend.”

Isabella did her best to hide the smile as her insides burst with excitement. “But I thought you’d be at the dance?”

“Is that where you want me to be, Isa? While you’re at the river listening to this guy play guitar for you?”

“No,” she said too quickly, then backpedaled. “I mean I heard you tell that girl you might be at the dance.”

“That was just me being polite with a customer. Why would I want to go to a dance without you?”

Feeling her heart flutter Isabella shrugged. “Well I thought because Cido said you two—”

“Cido,” he said openly and without bothering to lower his voice since their other best friend was busy flirting with three girls buying esquites. “Says a lot of shit, but you should know by now, he doesn’t speak for me. So, wherever you’re at Saturday night, I’ll be there right next to you.”

This time Isabella did smile. She was not about to argue. Not when she’d gotten exactly what she’d wanted. Confirmation that even as he’d gotten older and was now going to high school in the city with older girls, Alejandro was still one hundred percent feeling for her what she felt more profoundly for him with each passing day.

Release date is still TBA, but you can check back the author’s sites for news.

Author Bio

I write because I must. It’s not a choice or a pastime, it’s an unyielding calling and my passion.
~ Elizabeth Reyes ~

Award winning, USA Today Bestselling Author, Elizabeth Reyes continues to answer her calling on a daily basis. Since releasing her debut novel FOREVER MINE (Moreno Brothers #1) in 2010 she has since published more in that series, with more stories about the Moreno family and their friends to come. She’s also published a second series, 5th Street. Her Moreno Brothers‘ spinoff series Fate is also available.

Her debut traditionally published title is DESERT HEAT and her latest release is her first ever three-part romance serial called DEFINING LOVE.
