The time has come to offer up a book for an honest review. What is this book you ask? Well it's the second book in the series of Chronicles of the Fallen: Redemption! I've created a form for review sign up. It's a way for me to keep up with you. Nothing more. I hope to see your name on the list! If you run a blog and/or are a blogger please fill it out!!! Thank you in advance!
Occasionally I see wicked tattoos that come across my page but when I saw this beauty today, it broke open the "I'll never do it again" promise I made to myself over 10 years ago. I LOVE this so much!!! If I were to actually do it though, one angel wing on one shoulder and one devil wing on the other shoulder. ;)
I hope every one of you have enjoyed your holiday's so far. I looked at my countdown the other day and thought, "wasn't it just at 90 days?" Haha! The cover for Redemption will be released soon! If you loved the cover for Fallen then you'll love Redemption as well! Editing will be starting very soon and I'll be excited to start bringing in excerpts from the book!
I'm working with the amazing woman who did Fallen's book trailer to make one for Redemption. The song I selected is by the same group that was used in Fallen's trailer.
I'm still working on Souls of Fire and Ice. Recently I had wrist surgery so this has kept me off of the laptop for a while, however, as I'm typing this blog post, my wrist isn't hurting as bad! Maybe I'll be dusting off the books and getting back at it soon! As Samuel's voice screams in my head to keep on writing, other voices have been talking to me recently. Thank goodness for voice recorder! I've outlined a few new stories to add into my unending file of fictional characters, one of which is a serial killer! SCARY!!!
Silly food for thought: I was cleaning up my kitchen and found I have 5 bags of m&m's (regular and mini) and two zip lock baggies of mini m&m's. I think I'll be baking cookies here soon!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for the amazing 4 and 5 star reviews I've been left on Amazon and Good Reads! I hope the series continues to please the readers as this is the inspiration we crave to continue our writing journey. Not everyone will love our stories and no book is cookie cutter. This, as writer's, we've come to accept. I've provided a few of them below. Again, thank you for the reviews and may you (the reader) always find the book that calls to you.
I love to read books that receive bad reviews just to see if I agree or not. I started this book with an open mind, really didn't like it much because it jumped around alot but i always finish a book just to give it a fair shot, I'm happy to say that by the end I was totally engrossed in finding out what was going to happen. I came online to look for the 2nd book in the series and was bummed to find out it's not out yet. Yes there's alot of in depth story telling in book one but isn't that what a series is suppose to do? Pull you in and get you hooked? Well it did now break out the coffee and set at the typewriter and get that next book out lol Demons, Angels, losers and lovers, bad guys, good guys, tempters and lovers, honesty, deception, romance, hero, come on what's not to love in this story.
The story builds slowly and for many they may feel a book has to grab them from page one to hold their interest, take the time to relax and enjoy this book, by the end you to will be here hunting for book 2. My honest opinion, this author knows how to write a series and i for one will gladly add her to my favorite authors to watch.
This story was not what I expected, but in a good way. I have read plenty of books with Angels and Demons and this one wasn't same as the others. The female character was strong and Alex was wonderful. I highly recommend this book for those looking for a different kind of love story. I can't wait until book two is released!
Five wickedly sexy stars for Fallen! Fallen opens in New York City. Lisa is just like any other woman. She wants to be successful in life, but she also wants to be happy. When the perfect job falls into her lap, it would seem that she has it all: a career that many would covet, good friends, men interested in her, and general happiness. Unbeknownst to Lisa, her job is not all it seems, and neither is her boss, Samuel.
Samuel seems like a great person to work with. He is charismatic, though a bit mysterious, easy going, and fun. Nothing is missing, or so it would seem. The problem is that Samuel is not what he seems. Evil seldom looks evil head on, especially when it is out for your soul, and Samuel wants Lisa’s soul.
Alex is Lisa’s new neighbor. He is kind, fun to be with, and a gorgeous ray of sunshine, but even good guys have things to hide. As Lisa’s relationship with Alex progresses, so does Samuel’s attempts to steal Lisa’s very being, and he is not one easily thrown aside. There are fireworks everywhere when the intentions of Samuel collide with the goodness of Alex. With Lisa in between these two warring beings, anything is possible.
This book was very special to me. I’ve known the author, Julie Morgan, for 26 years. How she’s had all of this in her head for all her life is a mystery to me. I love the characters in this book. Yes, even Samuel, because you can’t have goodness without evil! For me, the most impressive facet of this book is the rich descriptions of Hell, and the angels and demons. Obviously, Ms. Morgan has never been to Hell, but from her descriptions, you might think she’d had firsthand experience. The reading of those scenes is actually stressful. Her grasp on angels and demons is no less impressive. They are strong, beautiful, and at many times, terrifying. That Julie Morgan successfully pulls off a great love story in the midst of this, is nothing short of ingenious in my opinion. It’s a tall order, but man, she comes through. I feel so proud to have watched this story evolve, and I am equally excited about being a part of the next one in the series: Redemption!
I can't believe it's exactly 90 days till I hit the publish button on book 2 of the Chronicles of the Fallen series! Redemption takes a deeper dive into the lives of Lisa and Alex. You'll meet a few new angels and demons and you may receive a visit from Samuel.
Some have asked, "What happened to Xander and Mariah?" Well you must read Redemption to find out!
During the course of Redemption, you'll follow Lisa and Alex along their adventure of "what the hell just happened?" Haha kidding, but in all seriousness, Fallen leaves you on a gasping cliffhanger. If you're wanting to know what happens next, then on March 15th press that "ONE CLICK" button!
What have you wished for from Santa this year? Maybe a sexy angel under your tree? Or maybe a hot demon? Well you'll get to make that wish soon enough!
Come check in with me Friday morning for an early Christmas gift!
Calling all bloggers!!! I'm currently looking for blog sites willing to read and review Redemption for an honest review. I'll be scheduling a tour here soon, or maybe just set up a review day blitz, we'll see! If you enjoy romance with some paranormal thrown in and mystery then Redemption is your cup of tea!
Lisa's choice has been made. She's living her dream and couldn't be happier. Then as news comes to shed light on her happily ever after, a series of events set in motion. Some want to claim what is rightfully theirs, others want to mold and mentor in a positive light.
Fallen has published!!! The responses to it have been amazing and more than I could have ever hoped for! I'm truly humbled. If you haven't picked up your copy, here's the link to Amazon to do so!
Redemption is underway! My betas have completed their read through and my street team is finishing up. So far, the consensus is "AMAZING!" "BLOWS FALLEN OUT OF THE WATER!" "I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!" Again, completely humbled and I can't thank my teams enough for their hard work and effort as we move along together in this journey!
In Redemption, I take a deeper dive into the characters you met in Fallen. I also introduce you to new characters; new angels and demons. "You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp and at the end, you'll want to kick Julie in her butt, then choke her while screaming, why did you do that!" I laugh with conviction to this because the story made its impact on the reader, which at the end of the day, is my goal. You'll get a better look into Alex, watch Lisa change, hate Samuel even more (as if that were possible!) and meet the new characters, whom you'll thoroughly enjoy!
Also, some have asked what happens to Xander and Mariah. You'll have to read Redemption to find out!
