It’s November and that means it’s National Novel Writing Month! For those of you social media savvy readers out there you will notice the hash tag #NaNoWriMo all over Twitter and Facebook and that’s what the hash tag is all about….National Novel Writing Month!
In honor of #NaNoWriMo I am spotlighting an author whose books I absolutely LOVE and she happens to be from my hometown of Salem, OR. Colleen Houck’s Tiger’s Curse series has been an absolute favorite of mine since I read the first book! She has come out with a Tiger’s Curse novella called TIGER’S PROMISE!
I am thrilled to be able to offer an e-copy of this outstanding book as well (see how to enter at the bottom of this post!).
TIGER’S PROMISE recalls the story beginning of Ren and Kishan. Here is the summary:
Before the curse, there was a promise. A prequel to the bestselling Tiger’s Curse series, this much anticipated novella recalls the beginning of Ren and Kishan’s story. Before Kelsey there was a girl, raised by a villain, whose love for a hero changed the course of history.
Trapped under the thumb of her abusive and powerful father Lokesh, Yesubai struggles to keep her own magical abilities secret while evading his dark powers. When Lokesh promises Yesubai to the prince of a neighboring kingdom, she becomes the central pawn in his plot to destroy the ruling family and take power for himself. Yesubai is trapped by her father’s threats and desperate to protect the man she comes to love, but she knows that any decision she makes will have dire consequences. As dark forces gather around her, Yesubai must decide if she’s willing to reveal that somewhere deep within her she has the power to change everything.

To help celebrate the release of Paula Brackston’s latest novel LAMP BLACK, WOLF GREY I am hosting a special feature about the book. As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Brackston’s ‘witch books’ and have read almost all of them.
This book isn’t exactly a ‘witch book’ but it still has the great magical and fantasy elements that Brackston is known for.
I will be reviewing this book in September to welcome in fall and my favorite time of year to read about witches, magic, and mystery!
Artist Laura Matthews finds her new home in the Welsh mountains to be a place so charged with tales and legends that she is able to reach through the gossamer-fine veil that separates her own world from that of myth and fable.

Diana and her vampire husband, Matthew, have returned from the 16th century and their home coming wasn’t necessarily the most joyous experience.
After dealing with the loss of a close companion and friend, Diana and Matthew must face what the future holds and acquire the elusive book, Ashmole 782, also known as The Book of Life before it falls into the wrong hands.
What they don’t expect is that one of Matthew’s homicidal vampire children,Benjamin, stands between them and the book. If Matthew and Diana hope to defeat Benjamin they must rely on their comrades and some past enemies to do it.
They must stop Benjamin at all costs and sometimes that means going down different roads, join Diana and Matthew as they seperate to search for the missing pages of Ashmole 782, the book itself, and the cure for blood rage.
