Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween, from me to you! Or just Happy Friday? Whatever it is, don’t forget to take a moment in memory of Lily and James Potter, who sacrificed themselves selflessly.

Here’s a little Flashback Friday action for you – Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter Release July 2007. I actually had little kids come up to me and think I was really Ginny. Ah, memories.

Random Thoughts and My Giveaway

Random Thought of the Day: If I can help it, I don’t ever leave my house without a book. I always have my Kindle or a paperback with me. I guess I am a bit like Rory Gilmore in that sense. Those very rare times when I am bookless, those are the ones that I feel naked. Like legit left-the-house-with-nothin-on naked.

As a reminder, I have a giveaway going. Click on the image below to enter!! Super easy!! This will run until Midnight EST on October 30, 2014. Be sure to enter for some really great prizes. Thank you to Crossroad Reviews, author Lindy Zart, and author Nely Cab for your amazing donations.

My Life, Fun Things, and “All That Remains” by Michele G. Miller

I have been a little busy over the last few months. Let’s see… what was I doing?
  • Working my HR job
  • Applying to grad school (Got in!)
  • Reading a whole heck of a lot
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Helping friends prep for weddings and various other parties/life events
  • Had a week-long stay-cation with the husband
  • Had a sleepover party with the nieces (4y and 9y!)

And there was something else… Let’s see… what was it?

All That Remains Cover

Oh ya, I was editing Michele G. Miller’s final installment in the From The Wreckage series – All That Remains. I can’t begin to tell you how absolutely incredible this series is, all bias aside. But jeesh, let me tell you something – it’s so cool to see my name up there next to “Editor” on Amazon. Besides that, it was pretty amazing utilizing my degrees, having first looks at such a wonderful book, and getting to know Michele G. Miller even better. (She’s pretty awesome. If you haven’t checked her out – Go check her out on Facebook!)

West Quote ATR

This series has brought me through a roller coaster of emotion and I’m quite a fan of Michele writing in this genre. She has the ability to grab you with the use of well-developed and relatable characters, the right amount of description, sensory-driven imagery, and realistic dialogue. I can’t wait to have it on my book shelf. 🙂
 
I can’t wait to see what happens next for these characters, even if it’s just in cameo appearances in spin-offs or whatever comes our way. I’m pretty thrilled I got another book boyfriend out of the deal (those Rutledge brothers are pretty.. uh.. they have great personalities. Ya know? 😛 )
 
This was a really fun journey to be a part of and I can’t wait to see what’s next… in the interim, pick up this book series. Book 1 is FREE!! And for more information about my editing services, please find a link at the top of my blog.

Book Spotlight: The Lilith Scroll by B.L. Marsh

Title: The Lilith Scroll
Author: B.L. Marsh
Genre: Urban Fantasy / New Adult
Tour Organizer: N K Author Services
Release Date: July 2014
Cover Art by Jena Brignola / Bibliophile Productions

What if you discovered there was time before time began? What if everything you thought was true, was not? What if there was a beginning before, “In the beginning”? What if another story was unfolding within our time? A story steeped in loss, love, betrayal, and secrets?

On her twenty-third celebrated birthday, Lilith arrived in Scotland, following clues she had secretly collected about her past. Little did she know that her arrival at the Rosslyn Chapel would reignite one of the oldest wars of all time- The Fall. Sides will be chosen, lives will be lost, and the secret kept all this time by the Illuminati will be exposed.

Welcome to Eden. The place where magic was born, trees are gateways to other realms, and Angels aren’t what you think they are. Meet Lilith. A young woman with an incredible story; one she isn’t supposed to know, much less tell. Meet Sam. A man with an unknown past and powers that rival Lilith’s.

 

Go back in time. Back to the garden. Experience the magic of creation, the wonder of nature, and the betrayal that destroyed it all.

“Did you sense the pain from within the child?” Declan asked.

“It was greater than anything I have ever experienced. What was done to her is unforgivable. Her strength in not giving into the Shade is unfathomable. Normally, I would say the child has much to learn, but in this case, I fear we have much to learn from her.” Alaric answered with reverence.

Turning toward the pool Declan responded, “Emzara will know what to do. I will call for her as well.”

Looking into the water, he saw the fair-skinned child lying at Adela’s feet, her long copper locks strewn across a perfectly round face. Declan, the great black unicorn, whispered, “Happy birthday, little one. We will find out who or what has awoken you. You will be safe. No harm shall befall you. This is my solemn vow.”

“It is time dear friend.”  A voice shook him from his thoughts.

The Dragon and Unicorn Knights cast spell after spell into the pool.  Runes in ancient languages long since forgotten began to glow on her skin weaving a glowing web of magic around the sleeping girl. A faint orange light caught the Unicorn Knight’s eye. Amongst the glowing runes on her body, a faint symbol appeared on her wrist. Adela watched as the sleeping girl accepted the magic from the knights — and strengthened it.

“She bears the mark of the Great Sacrifice. The myths are true. I knew she someone important when she came to the cave, but never in all these millennia did I think she was the Taken.” The Knights looked at one another as the reality of who the young girl’s identity became clear.


B. L. Marsh has been writing and telling stories her entire life.  She is a music teacher, guest lecturer and runs Master Classes.  Her academic research is focused on the L’homme arme tradition, the Dead Sea Scrolls, chant transmission in the Medieval and Renaissance, and Gnostic and Kabbalah history.  Her passion for spirituality, mythology and developing her relationship with God are parts of her Rule of Life.  In her reading of the Bible and other extra-biblical texts however, she began to daydream about the characters, about how life was back then, and how cool it would have been to walk in the Garden with God.  Her stories weave a new mythology revolving around Genesis.  
When she is not writing or teaching, she spends her days hanging out with five of the coolest boys on the planet and at night can be found doing completely ridiculous things like reading Joseph Campbell and Jane Austin and watching the same 3 movies on TV.

7 Years Ago…..

…the final installation of Harry Potter books was released. Happy 7th, Book 7!!

What did you do on this day? Did you go to a book release like I did? Did you dress up? Tell me your stories and share photos in the comments.

I went to the release ball at the local Borders.  Ya, Borders! I dressed as Ginny. (My husband went as Harry. The things he does for me, haha!)
