Read an exclusive excerpt from In Between Days by Anne Jamison

In Between Days by Anne Jamison is a highly rated YA novel that takes us back to the 1980s. A lot of issues faced by teens then are the same as today, and yet it was a completely different time. Reviewers love the nostalgia in this one. I have en exclusive excerpt for you to check out before you download your own copy to take a trip into the past. Be sure to follow the tour to read even more and then let the author know what you think along the way. And of course, there's a great giveaway at the end!

In Between Days

Chicago suburbs, 1985. The high school. The mall. The blood-stained Mercedes. Misogyny. Homophobia. Class warfare. Cocaine.

(And the first semester isn’t even over yet.)

The Jocks with their pastel Izods. The Barbies. The loser Burnouts.

High school in the 1980s had rules. Barbies and Jocks can mix. Barbie cheerleaders steer clear of the losers. Punks want to burn it all down.

Samantha Ward doesn't love the rules, but she plays to win. So when a snarky Burnout goes after her in a face-off, of course she fights back. Of course she fights mean. She may not get his sex joke, but she knows he made one. About her. In front of the entire cafeteria. And what's worse, she feels a tingle when she looks at bad-boy Jason.

How could she know her mean girl put-down would launch a war? Or that the school she knows hides a darker world she never even dreamed of?

In Between Days is a pitch-perfect story of first love, friendship, and enemies; of loyalty, betrayal, and the power of secrets. This darkly funny, suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of The Outsiders and The Breakfast Club.

"GRIPPING AND UNPUTDOWNABLE." --Christina Lauren, international bestselling authors of Dating You/Hating You “THIS WAS a bittersweet tumble into eighties high school nostalgia, with all the angst, sexual tension and emotional confusion involved with first love, and so well done it was a non-stop read to the end.… (Oh, and one of the best first kisses I have EVER read...),” says one reviewer

Author's Note:
This is a historical novel that contains period language that is, and was then, and should be, offensive.

Read an excerpt:
”Looks like Teen Barbie would like to see how Devlin dives,” sneered Skinny. “She can’t even look him in the eyes. She’s all trembling.”

Never had a chicken breast been so entirely engrossing.

The rest of the swim team had taken notice, and Dave got up. “You know, scum like you don’t get to talk to girls like these. Scum like you don’t even get to look at them. So, beat it.”

Skinny shrugged into his torn-off jeans vest, pretending to shiver. “Ooh, Jason. Swimmers have threatened us.”

“Run for your lives, boys, while there’s still time.” Falsetto sneers from the background. More boys in army pants or beat-up jeans and plaids moved in to where Skinny Nowlin and Jason Devlin were squaring off against the Barbies and the swimmers.

Jason just laughed. “Swim boy, unwind your Speedo from your dick and chill. Dudes. No lunch rumble today. See,” and he looked at Samantha again, “Barbie here is safe from me. I don’t really dive in shallow water. I just don’t find it’s worth the time and . . . ” He took a deep breath, then blew the air slowly into his slouchy hair, showing his tongue between his teeth before finally saying, “ . . . effort.”

Samantha hoped only that an enormous hole would open where she was sitting and swallow her. Into hell. Which would be better than the cafeteria.

But then Jessica nudged her foot. Message taken. Some burnout had gotten the better of her, in front of a big audience. It couldn’t stand. Because girls could smell blood in the water like sharks. They were always circling. If they smelled blood they went for it. Even if they were your friends, instinct would take over. And if they weren’t your friends, they were waiting for it, any opening to the kill.

Guys were no different. They were just looking for an opening of a different kind. Samantha repressed a shudder. She could shudder later. Response required. Now.

Gods of Merlin by Priya Ardis

Welcome to the blurb blitz tour for Gods of Merlin by Pirya Ardis! This one is for fans of contemporary fantasy/paranormal stories. Please enjoy the excerpt and then follow the tour for even more. Let the author know your thoughts and questions in the comments section. And of course, enter the great giveaway at the end!

Gods of Merlin


Foster kid and occasional shoplifter Eowlyn Patience just wants to fit into her Boston high school. When the Sword In The Stone falls out of the sky like a meteor into the middle of London’s Trafalgar Square, everything changes. Then, an enigmatic golden-eyed man arranges for her to attend a school for the gifted in England, and the irritatingly perfect Matt Emrys from science class turns out to be Merlin—the Merlin, King Arthur’s greatest wizard.

Frozen in a cave for fifteen hundred years, Merlin has woken to find the next Arthur. Eowlyn Patience’s mysterious admittance to Avalon Preparatory was not something he foresaw…a disturbing aberration when his most powerful gift happens to be visions of the future.

The race to find the rightful heir rages between deadly gargoyles, wizards, and Regulars, but figuring out the troubled Eowlyn might be by-the-book Merlin’s hardest job yet. She’s altogether the wrong girl. Torn between what is right and what saves lives, will Eowlyn do what it takes to win—even if it means sacrificing Merlin to a god?

Read an excerpt:
“You are my Gwenhwyfar,” he said. “Or how do you say her name in your time? Guinevere.”

I stood, wanting to run but knowing it would do no good. Because I was not in reality. I was in a dream. I played along. “Wasn’t Guinevere King Arthur’s wife? I’m a little young. I belong to no one.”

“I did not come seeking a wife. My former love is the reason we are in this mess. I have chosen you to be my champion, my right hand. You will go where I cannot.”

I growled in disbelief. “What makes you think I would do anything for you?”

Golden eyes glowed as he considered me. Power radiated from his gaze. The power burned so bright, like the sun, that I would be burned if I looked too long. Then, golden eyes blinked. The light dimmed and I could breathe again.

He peered at me. I dropped to my knees on the ground.

He touched my cheek. “You will do it, Eowlyn Patience, because you crave what I do. You would do anything to leave this small life behind. You would do anything for a bit of power.” His thumb traced the line of my jaw. “Seize the day, my champion.”

ExtraNormal by Suzanne V. Reese

Welcome to the book blast tour for Extranormal by Suzanne V. Reese! This YA/NA novel is for fans of sci-fi and romantic suspense. Check out an excerpt and then follow the tour for more. Be sure to share your thoughts with the author along the way. And of course, remember to enter the great giveaway!


When 17-year old Mira Johns travels from the Planet Nreim to Earth, she wastes no time blowing through a long list of rules, including the requirement that she stay away from the planet’s teenage males. But when it appears that her actions have put her new friends in danger, Mira must figure out who is behind a series of violent attacks before the agency figures out her secret relationship and sends her back home.

They told me it would be easy—just blend in, observe, and keep to myself. They didn't tell me that failure would cost me everything.

Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Which is why it's a shock when she's selected ahead of six hundred other candidates to be the first student ever to travel from the planet Nreim to Earth. Even though she’s only there to observe, she’s given what feels like a million rules that are mostly intended to keep her away from the planet’s primitive males. But after she finds one mysterious boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes they have a connection that transcends their two planets—and puts both their lives in danger. When a series of serious accidents makes it clear that someone wants to force her return, Mira decides her only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment—before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.

Read an excerpt:
The room circled around us, lights falling across our intertwined bodies. bodies. The rich musical notes surrounded us in full crescendo. The world and all the forces pulling against us fell away in that bright, singular moment.

I imagined him in his bedroom, tormented and desperate, composing and playing each of those harmonic parts separately, then blending them together. Even on my world, I would consider him brilliant. I never imagined my love for him could grow this much.

Jesse released me when the haunting strains of the music died away. I caught my breath—and wanted to ask him to start it again. But he would have to walk away to do that. Another—far lesser—song began. We moved again with our feet side-by-side, wrapped in each other’s arms, our bodies close. I’d often wondered why he was so different from other boys—so pure in his love for me. But with that kiss, I understood that he did long to be close to me. Not in the empty and greedy way of other boys from this world, but simply to express his love.

Note: Because this is the author's ten-year cancerversary, she will be donating author proceeds during launch week to cancer research. (The Huntsman Cancer Research program, where 100% of donations go towards research. They are also the center that treated her.)

About Suzanne V. Reese

A decade ago, author Suzanne V. Reese had a string of land-mark events—published her first novel, outlined her second novel (while daydreaming in a university science class), graduated from that university, became a grandmother, and then topped it all with a late-stage breast cancer diagnosis.

That second novel, ExtraNormal, YA speculative fiction, became her therapy during a long and difficult treatment program. It was published a few years later with the encouragement of her incredibly supportive friends and family. Despite little marketing, the book quickly became an Amazon best-seller.

Suzanne then made the difficult decision to ensure her long-term existence by focusing on her health rather than continue with the series. Happily, to celebrate her ten-year survival and end-of-treatment mark, she is releasing an updated version of the best-selling novel ExtraNormal, this time to be soon followed by the remaining books in the ExtraNormal Chronicles.

Suzanne has a degree in communications from Utah State University, as well as certifications in nutrition and holistic health. She is the founder of Story Igniters, which offers courses that help readers find their real-life superpowers. She lives with her husband in Draper, Utah, where she enjoys doting on her seven grandchildren.

Magical Beasts series by Geoffrey Saign

Welcome to the book blast for the Guardian series by Geoffrey Saign! Learn about the first two books. Follow the tour for even more insights. Let the author know your thoughts. And of course, enter the great giveaway at the end!

Guardian: The Choice

A demon haunts Samantha Green's dreams.

And she fears it's coming for her...

When wildlife prodigy Sam and her crush—quirky handsome Jake—are attacked by a dragon assassin, Sam discovers her secret past. A past connected to a supernatural giant cat and a glowing faerie.

Sam is quickly pulled into a high stakes battle for the world. Everyone, including a creepy ancient villain, wants her supernatural staff, which she doesn’t know how to use. Sophisticated ninja dragons, a kong-sized gorilla, and mysterious beasts offer help—but are they friends or enemies? Sam has a big heart, but will her love for all creatures tear her life apart?

To survive the hardest choice she's ever made, Sam will have to unlock the hidden power inside her.

Ready or not, Sam is about to find out if she has what it takes to be a guardian…

Guardian: The Choice is the new exciting start of a magic-filled fantasy four book series starring a powerful heroine, a tough brawny hero, and a slew of not-so-friendly magical beasts.

Read an excerpt
Biting his lip, Jake grips the staff beneath my hands. “Okay, Sherlock. Got it figured out?”

I feel warmth in my hands and a vague memory returns. “I hope so.”

His eyes widen. “You hope so? I don’t want to end up in Africa or on top of a skyscraper! What if we end up inside a rock? I mean we’re turning into what? Beams of light? Maybe we’ll end up off the planet. What if they’re aliens? I mean they are anyway, right?”

He’s quiet for a few moments. “Weird, I think I remember this too.”

The soldiers stop at the edge of the meadow, aiming their weapons at us, while Macy’s voice booms at us. “Drop the staff now, Samantha and Jake.”

“Forget you, Macy.” Jake pushes me around so his armored back blocks me from Macy’s VIPERS. “Hurry it up. They can still Taser my legs. And I have to tell you, it was not fun the first time.”

“Thanks for taking one for the team, Jake.”

He squints at me. “I just don’t want to take another one for the team. What kind of team are we anyway? Batman and Robin? They both get beat up a lot.”

“How about Ant-Man and the Wasp?”

“That’s a little better.” His eyes light up. “They were romantic, you know.”

I roll my eyes. “Don’t push it.”

We lift WhipEye off the ground, but Taser darts bite the dirt on either side of us and we freeze.

Interview with Savvy and Gemini from A Violet Fire by Kelsey Quick

Welcome to the tour for A Violet Fire by Kelsey Quick! Today, Kelsey is interviewing her characters Savvy and Gemini. Have I ever mentioned how much I love character interviews? I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do, too. Let her know what you think in the comments section. And then be sure to follow the tour for even more fun. Best of luck in the giveaway!

Interviewing Savvy and Gemini from A Violet Fire

Hi everyone! It’s me, Kelsey Quick, and I am hosting an interview today. Bet you didn’t see that coming. Today, I am interviewing two of my favorite side characters from A Violet Fire… 

Savvy and Gemini!

KQ: Welcome, Savvy. You’re looking fine as hell in that dress today.

Gemini: Yes, she sure is.

Savvy: [chuckles nervously] Um, thank you.

KQ: And Gemini, nice to have you here as well, despite the pesky daylight.

Gemini: Pleasure is mine. That’s what they make umbrellas for, yes?

KQ: …not quite, but close! Let’s get right into this, shall we? Ahem, so you two are both residents in Lord Anton Zein’s castle from the Sabbanthian Province of Cain, right? How do you like it there?

Gemini: Well, one doesn’t simply live out their eternal servitude in luxury and call it heinous, now do they? Serving Lord Anton Zein is one of the highest honors in all of Cain given his title, and he takes pride in treating us all with honor and respect. There’s no place I’d rather be.

KQ: I assure you, Gemini, there is no way Zein is going to find this interview… so you can be completely honest.

Gemini: [whispers] …you never know.

KQ: Okay then, Savvy?

Savvy: I have no complaints as well. Although I do wish I could convince Wavorly of the same, I believe that our lord’s seraglio is very well-preserved for a supply unit sector, and Lord Zein is very noble in his drinking of our blood.

KQ: Supply units?

Savvy: Yes… humans are called supply units in the Stratocracy of Cain because vampires need our blood to survive.

KQ: …Are you in danger? Do you need help?

Gemini: [scoots closer to Savvy] She is just fine, you keep your hands off my… err… Lord Zein’s precious investment.

Savvy: Really, it’s fine! I’m happy to do whatever necessary to help the vampires. It’s an honorable calling. [Looks around frantically]

KQ: What are you doing?

Savvy: Making sure Wavorly isn’t around. She definitely does not agree with me.

KQ: Can’t say I blame her… Okay! Next Question. Savvy this one is for you. Your world is pretty devoid of fun things. Of all the things you have experienced while in our world today, what is the one thing you would take back to the Stratocracy of Cain?

Savvy: Funnel cakes.

KQ: What?

Savvy: Definitely funnel cakes. With that red, sweet-sauce on top.

Gemini: I took her to the fair earlier. She needs to keep up her strength for her um… feedings, you know!

KQ: Hmm… okay, Gemini, how about you? What is the one thing you would take back to Cain?

Gemini: Oh, that’s easy. I would bring back all of the pathetic humans so that we may partake of their precious blood before casting them to the breeding houses of Saya to replenish our ever-dissolving supply.


Gemini: Joking, joking. I would definitely take back these Twilight movies of yours. Fascinating take on vampires and might benefit our brainwashing division!

KQ: [whispers to Savvy] Again I ask, are you in danger?

Savvy: He’s a sarcastic mess, don’t listen to him.

Gemini: How dare you both!

KQ: I think it’s about time to wrap it up. One last question. If there were one thing you could do over again, what would it be?

Savvy: If I had the chance… I would try to go back before they took me from my mother and focus on memorizing her face. I hate that I can’t remember it.

KQ: Darling, your entire existence is a cry for help. Let’s talk afterward… how about you, Gemini? If there were one thing you could do over again, what would it be?

Gemini: Most definitely this interview. I have a feeling I’ve said too much!

A Violet Fire

"A vampire tale with a heady mix of defiance and doubt, rebellion and romance." — Kirkus Reviews

"There is not a single dull moment in this book... A Violet Fire has all the ingredients to become the next Hollywood movie about vampires." — Readers' Favorite

"In the Vampire Stratocracy of Cain, human blood is scarce. For centuries, councils have sought to assuage the blood shortage by enslaving and breeding humans, turning them into profitable supply units for the rich and the abled.

Today, eighteen-year-old Wavorly Sterling is officially a supply unit, bound to serve her blood willingly to her master for the rest of her life. One of only few humans that was not bred in Cain, Wavorly knows freedom better than anyone, and she is determined to escape the clutches of her oppressors—despite the allure of forbidden love."

Read an excerpt:
He grabs the hair on the back of my neck and pulls down, exposing the breadth. My mind leaps to my years of night terrors; to that vampire from ten years ago; to my mother changing before my eyes into one of the fallen. I nearly forget to breathe while terror floods my veins.

He’s going to turn me into one of them!

“No! You can’t!” I scream as he lowers his face to the crook of my neck and shoulder, his hot breaths sending chills along my skin—as if each and every inch knows the horror that lies ahead.

“I can,” he says.

My fingers grasp at his immovable arms that have me locked against him. I pull and push with as much might as my hands can muster, to no avail. If I am dirt, he is steel.

The Heart of Aleppo:A Story of the Syrian Civil War

By Ammar Habib
YA Contemporary
Paperback & ebook, 252 Pages
July 26th 2018

Winner of the 2019 Independent Press Award
#1 Bestseller in "Coming-Of-Age" Fiction
#1 Bestseller in "Asian-American" Literature

From the ashes of the Syrian Civil War comes this story of hope, love, and courage...

After standing for over 7,000 years, Aleppo's ruin came overnight. Separated from his family during the night the rebels attacked the city, thirteen-year-old Zaid Kadir is lost in the middle of a war zone. Alongside his friends, he is forced to survive the dangers of a civil war he does not even fully understand. Zaid witnesses the destruction of the brutal Syrian Civil War as it grows more deadly by the day and rips his city apart. However, as he braves this destruction, as he desperately tries to survive this catastrophe, he discovers something. Zaid realizes that it is in the darkest hours when humanity's spirit of hope burns brightest.

(Affiliate link included.)

Read an excerpt:
He takes a deep breath and glances down at my feet. His eyes look like he’s weighing something, wondering if he should say it or not. When he does speak, his voice is different. It’s no longer speaking to me as his younger brother but as his friend. “You know, Zaid, Zakariah was joking about what we were talking about.” 
He nods before his gaze focuses back on me. “Not even a few weeks ago, my soldiers and I were in a bit of a… well, situation.” 
“What happened?” 
“We were in Homs. The people we were fighting—the rebels—had heavy control of some neighborhoods. We were trying to take them back. It was…” 
A silence ensues as he searches for the word.

“Difficult.” Nabeel pauses. “Some soldiers were pinned. The army tried an airstrike to break the rebel lines. It was a heavy bombardment that leveled entire streets. The cost was high. But we couldn’t break their lines.”

I don’t interrupt him.

“Our intelligence said it was a lost cause. We were ordered to abandon the soldiers. They said we would lose more men than we would save. But even the army’s ‘intelligence’ doesn’t know everything.” He looks away. “Zakariah and I disobeyed our commanding officer. As did our men. Those soldiers that were pinned weren’t just men. They were my friends… my brothers. And I would never abandon them, even if it led to…” 
For a moment, his eyes again display that same gleam, but it disappears as quickly as it came. 
His gaze again meets mine. It’s firmer this time, stronger. “It doesn’t matter what people say, Zaid. It doesn’t matter what the facts say. All that matters is what you say. And, maybe more importantly, what you do.” 
I hang on his words, unable to say anything.

“Why do you want to be a doctor, Zaid?” 
“I’ve always wanted to.” 
“But why?” 
“Because… I don’t want to see people suffer. I… I want to be the one to help others. I want to save lives, make a difference and put others before myself. I want to make this world a better place. Just like the Imam always talks about.” 
Nabeel smiles. “Never forget that. And never go back on your word. No matter what happens. Please never forget one thing, Zaid: I love you. No matter the circumstance—no matter if I’m so far from you that you may never see me again, know that I’m with you.” He presses his finger against my heart. “I believe in you, Zaid.”
