Forever Road
By Catie Rhodes

My name’s Peri Jean Mace, and I’ve seen ghosts ever since I can remember. Don’t get too excited. Seeing across the veil branded me as a loony during my growing up years, and I learned to keep my yap shut about it.

Now I’m not sure I can anymore.

See, my cousin up and got herself killed the very same day I promised her a favor.  Now she’s back in spirit form and determined to make me pay. If I don’t solve her murder, she’s going to haunt me forever. Talk about the debt collector from hell.

That’s not my only problem. An obnoxiously hot cop wants to arrest my best friend for the murder.  My bigmouthed archenemy holds a clue to the killer’s identity. And there’s this mean—and ugly—woman who wants to beat me up.

None of this can turn out good.

By Meredith Bond

Tatiana Ashurst has a secret – one that she cannot afford to be known to Georgian English society. But Kit Vallentyn discovers her hidden ability to wield infinitely powerful magic… and saves her from inadvertently revealing it to everyone. Tatiana knows it is impossible for her to marry him. But how can she help herself from becoming fascinated by this handsome man, who seems to extend a spell over her more powerful than any she can conjure?

Kit is out for a wife. His instinct, however, is to go through the mere motions of searching, just to please his ambitious father who wants a big dowry from the marriage. But the one woman who he can’t get out of his mind is the twin sister of the one his father wants him to marry – the one who is plain, penniless, ineligible… and enchanting in more ways than one.

For Kit and Tatiana to weather the storm of their desires, they have to peel away the layers of all of their secrets, to discover the simple truth of their love.

Tales from the Mist will take you on a journey into the dark world of the paranormal. These twelve stories vary in their degree of horror, yet all reach across the boundaries of their genres into the chilling realms of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages.

Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Mutated: “Tales From The Mist is one of those rare anthologies that gets it right from the first story to the last. It’s a magnificent feast of horror from some of the most assured voices working today. From cold-blooded tales of revenge to Faustian bargains to terrifying journeys into the dark corners of our world, these stories will make the shivers climb your back.”
From TW Brown, author of Dead: The Ugly Beginning: “To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror.”

When she finally finds her prize, her worst nightmares are far from over and the toughest battle is yet to begin. Will love win the war in the end?

Up Close and Personal—a Second-Chances sweet romance
from Grantitude Press, where every ebook includes a gift
By Janet Wellington
$2.99 at Amazon 

KSUN reporter Angie Fletcher is definitely hiding something, and Jason Macdonald is determined to find out exactly what it is while he keeps his own secrets under wraps.

Angie Fletcher’s life is right on track—she has her dream job as an up and coming TV reporter at San Diego’s KSUN, plus the perfect fiancé who understands her and her career goals. With a wedding to plan and her former farmer’s daughter past to keep hidden, the last thing she needs is her new assignment covering Green Zone’s community garden project. She’ll need to grit her teeth and just get through it…but when she meets long-haired, devastatingly handsome and mysterious Jason Macdonald, she soon finds herself taunted and tempted.

For Jason Macdonald, Green Zone is a perfect fit—and the polar opposite of his former, fast-paced 24/7 work schedule. When he learns the new KSUN reporter is resisting covering his new business, he’s ready to set her straight. When they meet, all sorts of sparks fly. She’s everything he expects—type-A all the way…but he also suspects she’s hiding something. When she lets her guard down, he sees a glimpse of a different Angie. But what is she hiding…and why does he care so much?

The past is a funny thing. We think we can run from it, hide it, even change it in the eyes of others. But, with hard work we don’t have to be trapped by it, and maybe, just maybe, it’s there to teach us. As their attraction builds and they are forced to work together, will Angie and Jason each face their pasts in order to open up their hearts to an unexpected future?

$2.99 at AmazonB&NSmashwords 

In the year 2057, in a post-apocalyptic world where a polar shift threatens the survivors of a widespread pandemic with extinction, sixteen-year-old genetically enhanced Lily Carmichael has more immediate problems. Her uncle is dying of cancer and her healing abilities are ineffective against the blood ties that bind them. In order to find a cure, Lily must leave the protection of her quiet town and journey to the trading city of Albany, all while avoiding the Industry, an agency that would like nothing better than to study and exploit her abilities.

Seventeen-year-old Will Callahan has been searching for his father since severe storms blasted through the Midwest, killing his mother and sister. When he learns that his father may be in the city, he catches a ride with Lily, a girl who has come to his rescue more than once. As the two embark on a dangerous journey, the tension between them grows. But the secrets Will’s keeping could put Lily in far more danger than traveling to the city with him, and if he was any kind of man, he would have told her to run the minute she found him.

The Whys and Hows of Writing Ebook Reviews, Featuring RG2E Author Marina Maddix

Wavin’ atchya, RG2E Peeps!

Please give a big ol’ RG2E Welcome to First-Time Featured Author, Marina Maddix, who’s sharing wonderful tips on Writing Ebook Reviews!

Take it away, Marina…

Let’s face it, writing reviews for the books we read can be downright daunting. Some of us are voracious readers, so keeping up with all the reviews we’re supposed to leave is overwhelming. Others of us have very busy lives, so on our list of priorities, leaving a review falls somewhere between changing the baking soda box in the fridge and cleaning mildew off the cellar walls. Some readers may even be worried about putting their own writing — even in the form of a book review — out there for the world to see.

By posting a positive review to Amazon, you’re leaving a permanent mark of approval for those who might want to read the book after you. It’s called social proof. Reviews also tell us writers when you want to read more about certain characters. I didn’t expect my steamy erotic-romance short story Knight Fall to get much of a response but readers seemed to connect with my heroine, Kelly. A handful left reviews, but many emailed me asking for more of Rick and Kelly’s story. If I’d relied solely on my few reviews, I might not have written the sequel, Vegas Knights, which I released on March 1. (Did you know you can create any pen name you want for your profile, so none of your family and friends will know which books you review?)

If you love a book or a series or a character or an author, you may very well be doing yourself a disservice by not leaving a review letting others, including the author, know you want more. The more good reviews a book has almost always translates into more sales for the author. Increased sales means s/he can write more, which means you can read more. Win-win!

Look at it this way: If there is a tiny specialty grocery store in your hometown that you would hate to see go out of business, you make an effort to shop there occasionally and tell others about it to show your support. Leaving reviews for your favorite authors works the same way.

Now to the nitty gritty. You hate leaving reviews, don’t have the time or don’t know what to say. The key is to speak the truth. If you loved a book, tell us why. Don’t give out spoilers but a few tidbits help us understand if we might like the same things. And they don’t have to be long, detailed book reports, either. Here’s an easy template to start you off that fulfills Amazon’s 20-word requirement but won’t take up much of your time — replace the ALL CAP words (and examples) with your own words:

“I really enjoyed BOOK TITLE because the story made me feel EMOTION (happy, sad, conflicted, reminiscent of my childhood, etc). I especially liked SOMETHING (a character, the storyline, a plot twist, etc — just don’t leave a spoiler!). I think anyone who enjoys GENRE (sci fi, erotic romance, WWII history) books, would enjoy this one.”

If you have a specific criticism of the book, go ahead and include it, such as: “I didn’t care much for SOMETHING (the writing style, a certain character, the ending), but overall I enjoyed the story.”

So what if you hated a book? Personally, I do my best to live by the ‘If you can’t say anything nice…’ rule Mom taught me. But if you feel compelled to leave a negative review, ask yourself a few questions first:

  • Were my expectations realistic? For example, you picked up a freebie months ago and just started reading it. You thought it was chick lit for whatever reason but you’re disappointed to learn it is actually a biography of Otto von Bismarck. As fascinating as the book may be, it’s not what you wanted to read, and you’re irritated. Before leaving an outraged review, pop over to the book’s Amazon page to see if the description and categories accurately depict the content. If so, leaving a negative review because you got mixed up doesn’t help anyone.
  • Was the book poorly written or did I just not like the decisions the characters made? I received a review in which the reader complimented the book up and down but gave me one star because she didn’t agree with a decision a character made at the end. I can understand her feelings but she claimed to enjoy everything else about the book, so did it really deserve one star? There are five stars to choose from — two, three and four stars are perfectly acceptable alternatives. Pick the one that best fits your *overall* feeling about the book.
  • Am I angry/upset/offended by the subject matter? If that’s the case, I would suggest not reading any more books in that genre as it’s just not for you. Leaving a negative review for the Bible because you’re an atheist is downright rude. The same holds true for paranormal erotica, unauthorized biographies or history texts. It’s a great big world out there, full of diversity. If you find yourself hating every book in a particular genre, try a different one.
  • Which brings us to the biggest question: Did I actually read this book? If you didn’t read the book, but rather are just assuming it’s bad because you believe the subject matter to be morally wrong or you think it’s a rip-off of your favorite author or you’re ethically opposed to mining for purple diamonds on Jupiter, please don’t leave a review. Not only is it against Amazon’s Terms of Service, but it’s downright deceitful. Instead, read a book you think you’ll enjoy and use the template above to write a glowing review!

Vegas Knights DESCRIPTION:

VegasKnights

After a passionate public encounter with a mysterious and very sexy biker, big girl Kelly Saunders finds herself on the ride of her life. Her ‘Knight on shining armor’ — Rick Knight, heir to a motorcycle legacy — whisks her away from her soul-sucking corporate job to Las Vegas, where she finds the road to love is treacherous.

As urgent business matters demand more and more of Rick’s attention, Kelly is left to wonder about the future of their relationship. A ruthless betrayal throws her life into turmoil, and a devastating discovery threatens to pull them apart. Is their love just so much Vegas glitter or is it strong enough to survive beyond the dazzling lights of Sin City?

EXCERPT:

They sat entwined under the stars, swaying slightly with the rhythm of their own bodies. Rick’s hands moved slowly from her hair down her back. Shivers of anticipation rippled through Kelly. They were going to make love under the stars. It had always been a fantasy of hers but she’d never imagined it would come true. But a lot of things she’d never imagined were happening lately.

Feeling the need to show him she wasn’t some precious flower that needed tending and special care, that she was an independent woman, Kelly took control. His eyes never left her body as she moved to stand over him, legs spread, hands on her hips.

“Strip.” The single word brought a knowing smirk to Rick’s face. Without a word, and still never taking his eyes from her, he eased his off his jacket, throwing it aside. His gaze was positively smoldering as he loosened his tie and started to pull it over his head.

“Leave it.” Kelly commanded on impulse. His hands paused, then dropped to the front of his charcoal Armani button-down, his eyes burning into her flesh like a brand. His fingers worked slowly, deliberately, intensifying her need for him. But she wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of seeing her impatience. Cocking her hip, she let him tease her with his leisurely pace.

When the shirt was lying atop the leather jacket, he looked up expectantly, awaiting her next instruction. When she nodded toward his pants, triumph flashed across his face. She realized her mistake as he moved to stand. Once on his feet, he would tower over her, emphasizing her vulnerability and his dominance.

“On second thought, scratch that.” One of his eyebrows shot up, and a look of exasperation took the place of triumph. She knew the score and she wasn’t going to give him an advantage if she could help it. He leaned back on his elbows — shirtless and irresistible — and studied her.

She couldn’t afford to make a misstep or show any hesitation. This had become less of a game for her and more of a demand for equality in this relationship. He may be rich, but that didn’t mean he was in control here. Either he accepted that they were in this together, as equal partners, or he would be taught that lesson. Of course, she suspected that would be a lesson he might enjoy learning.

An RG2E Ereading Experiment – When, Where and How Many Pages Per Day Are We Ereading?

Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!

We’re kicking off our first RG2E Ereading Experiment today!

iStock_000002719489XSmall

For the next few days (thru 2/28), I thought it would be great fun and superfab informative to “track” – When, Where and How Many Pages Per Day We’re Ereading.

istock_000016922051xsmall

Here’s how it will work…

Each day (or several times per day-each time you read a bit more), stop by The RG2E, and leave a comment in this post answering the following questions:

1.) What time of day did you Eread? (Examples: during my lunch break, on the commute to and from work, while waiting on my children at various sporting event practices or games or other activities, after supper, in bed before going to sleep, etc.)

2.) Where did you Eread? (Examples: on the subway or train, in the car, in my company’s breakroom, at home in my fave reading chair, in bed, in the kitchen while preparing a meal, etc.

3.) How many pages did you Eread today? (of if your Ebook doesn’t have a page count…just let us know the percentage of each book you’ve completed)

***Note: If you want to toss in what you read and any other cool scoop you’d like to add about your reading habits over our experiment period, go ahead!

I’ll tally up everything you comment on and do a fabulous wrap-up so we can all see how much Ereading is a part of our every day lives.

Sound fun?!

Also, every time you comment, I’ll add your name to a “magick hat,” and throughout the week, you’ll have chances to win Gift Cards (Amazon, B&N, or Kobo – winners’ choices).

Okay…ready…set…Eread…then Show-and-Tell us About It, Peeps!!!

Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street talks “I Heart Valentine’s Day”

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

We’re starting our Valentine’s Day Celebration a wee bit early here at The RG2E with the help of one of my fave authors and good friends – Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street.

Take it away, Alicia…

6a7b3e93eee20ad8986c73.L._V160550698_SX200_

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a special day for those of us who love romance. J Aside from wondering what my DH might give me, I can’t help dreaming about how the sweethearts in the Dance ‘n’ Luv contemporary romance series might celebrate.

I would guess Parker, gardener supreme, would make a gorgeous heart of roses for Tanya. And maybe his sister Casey would challenge the cocky wiseguy Drew to another ping-pong match, only this time sans clothing. I can see Amanda and Russ staying cozy by a fire in his fisherman’s bungalow. And Jenna and Aiden would take in a show and do the town in NYC.

If you haven’t yet met these couples yet, in the series, I’ve put the Dance ‘n’ Luv Contemporary Romance Boxed Set at a special price. Plus I’ll be giving one away today!

AMAZON UK

And since I invited some author friends to chime in on what their characters might be up to for Valentine’s Day, you’ll also have a chance to either buy at a sale price or win a free copy of the books listed below!

To start off, we’ve got three Valentine themed ebooks! Christy Hayes’s Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally, Sheila Seabrook’s The Valentine Grinch and Kristine Cayne’s Un-Valentine’s Day.

Let’s start with Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally by Christy Hayes. How would your story sweethearts celebrate?

Slide1

Christy: The couple from my stand-alone short story met on Valentine’s Day so this holiday would also be their anniversary. As New York City residents, Celia and David would probably venture to Madison Square Garden to take in a hockey game if one were scheduled for Valentines. If not hockey, perhaps basketball since that is Celia’s favorite sport. They would then go to the pizza restaurant where they shared their first meal and end the night as David would have preferred on their first unofficial date: wrapped in each other’s arms.”

In Sheila Seabrook’s LOL novella, The Valentine Grinch, the heroine Amanda hates Valentine’s Day. Luckily she meets up with Dane, her high school buddy, and he’s intent on changing her mind about it. So what are they doing on this special day?

TheValentineGrinch200

Sheila: They’re going to Grandma Elvira’s wedding — which is giving them both a few wedding ideas of their own. :-)

In Kristine Cayne’s novelette, Un-Valentine’s Day, her heroine is also set against this lovers’ holiday. How come?

2940015978520_p0_v1_s260x420

Kristine: Cassie, the heroine, hates the sappy romantic holiday because the previous year, instead of getting a Valentine’s Day proposal from her now ex-boyfriend, she caught him cheating. But Noah is determined to give her the best, most unexpected Valentine’s Day ever. Cassie doesn’t know what to expect, but it certainly isn’t the day of testosterone-laden activities and the revelation that there is more to cute-but-more-than-a-little-nerdy Noah. Much more.

What about the fab couple in Chicki Brown’s Ain’t Too Proud To Beg?

ATPTB - Final Large Cover

Chicki: Private time is at a minimum for Vaughn and Trenyce. Both of them treasure time away from the hustle and bustle of Tinseltown and the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Since Trenyce has lived most of her life inland, she has an absolute fetish for the ocean. Vaughn and Trenyce’s perfect Valentine’s Day would be a trip to a secluded island retreat where no one recognizes him.  A beautiful retreat in Fiji fits the bill perfectly.

Then there’s Zach and Sadie in Stacey Joy Netzel’s More Than A Kiss

Stacey: As the owner of MovieMail in California, Zach is well connected. He surprised Sadie with tickets to Trent Tomlin’s new romantic comedy movie premiere, so they will spend an evening amongst the stars. After the premiere, they’ll take a long walk on the beach.

And I am definitely up for the kind of Valentine gift cooked up by MJ, Diana Layne’s hero from Trust No One.

30860ed51ad2241b2f9afb2a2ffdfd5e

Diana: Retired from the dangerous world of espionage, MJ Thornberg and Ben Walker live a quiet life in small town Texas where they own an auto repair shop. Since MJ’s the mechanic, Ben is sneaking away from the office to enlist the help of Dottie, best cook this side of the Red River, to make MJ a down home meal of chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas, collard greens and cornbread. Plus, he’s making MJ a decadent chocolate-layer cake all by himself.  (Wonder what the kitchen is going to look like when he’s finished?) The question is, will MJ be able to work the next day or will she be in a food-induced coma and have to close down shop to stay home–in bed with Ben?

The food factor also comes into play for the sweethearts in Nana Malone’s Sultry in Stilettos.

Sultry In Stilettos_Romantic Comedy_Contemporary romance_2000

Nana: Since Beckett and Ricca are such a new couple, they’d spend a quiet night alone. Ricca knows the way to Beckett’s heart is through his…. stomach, so she’d make him all his Trinidadian favorites, in particular Callaloo. And Beckett, knowing his woman is so busy taking care of others that she barely has time for herself, would spend the day pampering her. Massage, nails, hair, the works. She wouldn’t have to leave the house or lift a finger for anything. He’d be her personal manservant.

So if you’d like to win one of the giveaway books, tell us your version of a romantic Valentine’s Day. And be sure to include which book you’d want and your email.

Wishing you a lovely and lovable Valentine’s Day!

Welcome to a Reader’s Paradise!

So many of us believe in the adage:  You get what you pay for..  That is true, but not always.  A recent report from Digital Book World reveals that the average price for a top-25 bestselling book has fallen considerably, dropping from a high in October of $11.37 to $8.23.  What’s that have to do with you?  Everything!  It’s never been a better time to be a reader.  More people are writing books giving you, the reader, more choices, and since the prices are coming down, it means you get more bang for your book-buying buck.  It’s a veritable reader’s paradise.   And speaking of paradise, this is the last day to snag some great read from those authors who hang out at the Beach Book Blast site as well as being the last day to register to win the spectacular prizes they are giving away.

Below is a sampling of those being offered:

A little world travel, a little romance, and a lot of suspense!

CarpeDiEmily

From the beaches of California to Jamaica, New York, and Europe, Emily finds herself on a madcap race against time, running from an unscrupulous organ broker who wants her dead, all the while checking items off her unusual bucket list. On top of it all, she’s falling in love with the most unlikely person, a man who can never return her feelings . . . but will his friendship be enough?

~~~~~~~~~~

Hi RG2E Readers!

It’s nearly two weeks since we celebrated the arrival of 2013, and the writers from the Beach Book Blast knew that once we flipped the calendar and settled into January, you would be looking for some fantastic stories to fill your e-readers.  Seventeen of our authors are offering books to warm up your winter reading.  Many of you may have just received your first e-reader as a gift and are not sure about embracing paperless books, but that brings me to another new year that is soon approaching—Chinese New Year.  This is the year of the water snake.  According to Chinese legend, the water snake is a formidable creature because even though it is small, it can swallow an animal much larger than it.

E-books are the water snakes of the publishing world.  While we are confident that paper books will never completely go away, e-books and e-readers are gradually swallowing up the traditional publishing world, and once you download our books, you will know why.  Indie books are the wave of the future!  Take a look at the ones featured below and start reading today.  Also, make sure to drop by the BBB site and register to win a $50 Best Buy gift card so you can get some wonderful accessories of your e-reader. Second and third prizes include gift cards from digital outlets for more e-books.

RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner on The MS Project and The Season of Giving

Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!

Here’s the scoop from RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner on a fabulous project – The MS Project – to help those with Multiple Sclerosis…

molaski-0008

Season of Giving

The holidays are traditionally synonymous with enjoying the company of family and friends and enjoying the good fortune in our lives. It’s also the time to reflect on those who are not as fortunate and there are many charities and organizations this time of year who focus on working toward getting these less fortunate families the important items they need.

During the holidays it is also common to think of loved ones who are no longer with us. For me the holidays make me think of my mother who passed away twelve years ago. Her birthday was the day after Christmas so it creates even more awareness in my mind. I lost my mother to the disease Multiple Sclerosis and a few years ago started working toward raising awareness for this disease to create more understanding for those who have it and their loved ones. The MS Project book is one of my efforts.
