The biggest thing on 15-year-old Tommy’s mind is convincing Mom to let him go to the drive-in, but when an accident claims his mother’s life and puts him in the hospital, the arrival of his estranged, alien father brings more changes than he had bargained for. It doesn’t take his father long to figure out that Tommy knows nothing about who or what he is. Without any explanation, Tommy finds himself onboard his father’s spaceship where he is forced to trust a man he does not know in a world he knows even less about.

Adapting to his new life seems overwhelming, and his father’s solution may prove to be Tommy’s finest challenge yet…Jayden. A few months younger than Tommy, high strung and always in a mood, the doctor’s daughter definitely didn’t like being ‘told’ to help Tommy fit in. Jayden is not the most welcoming or patient of tutors, let alone a friend. As fate would have it, Tommy quickly learns that none of these things compare to the peril that comes from being born with amethyst eyes.

Review Guest post sign

All I can say is Wow, Wow, and Wow again.

I’m not a sci-fi person/reader/writer but I take my hat off for authors who do write in this genre. This book was really well written, crafted with well developed characters. The plot is excellent and Debbie Browne has hooked me from the first page of this story.

It follows Tommy. Dad left when he was two and the only thing he knows about his father was that he loves him but for some reason couldn’t live with them. Then his mother died in a car crash. Dad returns and that’s where things are really getting good.

Tommy is half Alien. Now, living with Dad on a ship, he needs to fit in. Being half Alien, he doesn’t and feel like an outcast. The other kids bully him and so forth. To make things worse for this poor boy is the color of his eyes. Aliens with Amethyst eyes get hunted down by other Aliens.

Without giving too much of the plot away, Amethyst eyes was really a good story. It deserves a five and I hope that more stories like this will be written in the future.
Tommy was such an amazing character and you can easily relate to him. He was constant throughout the novel and I praise Debbie for that.

Good luck with Amethyst eyes, and I wish you just the best.

Justice for all Time by Kit Cole

Title: Justice for All Time: A Time Travel Romance
Author: Kit Cole
Kindle Edition, 277 pages
Published August 27th 2013 by Kit Cole Books

Book Description WordPress sign

Special Agent Cassie Becker has taken on every kind of situation you could think of in her decade with the FBI, but waking up in a Sacramento desert 150 years in the past is a whole new one. Gunless, badgeless and displaced in time, she has to use her considerable wits to fly under the radar of an over-inquisitive Sheriff, while solving the mystery of how she got there so that she can close the case and get home.

Sheriff Brendan Taylor knows there is something odd about the beautiful woman who blows into town guns blazing, and it isn’t just that she’s got amnesia. She’s smart, ballsy and completely crazy, and damned if she doesn’t show up at every one of his crime scenes armed and ready.

But she’s not the only time traveller in 1853, and if the Agent and the Sheriff can’t find a way to see past their differences and attractions, neither of them will get justice – in any time.

Review Guest post sign

 

I got his novel from the author for my honest opinion.

I’m not a fan of westerns but I got to admit, this was a really well written novel I enjoyed.

It starts off present time where Cassie is an FBI agent. Then she found a cave who is a porthole to the 1800.

She witness an attack saving a deputy’s life and that’s how her new life begin. It comes with all strange and funny experiences as the 1800 don’t have woman wearing slacks or being members of the force. There is no FBI and some even think she’s metal because of her accent.

There is also two officers, one a captain the other a sheriff, who battle for her affection.

I really loved all the characters, even the time period and think this novel was really entertaining.

I would recommend this to everyone.

Excerpts #3

A ballerina came on to the stage with no fanfare. The curtain didn’t rise and the lights didn’t dim.

She began to move, light and delicate, she could have been dancing on a cloud. The severe bun she wore had been powdered to look ghastly, and her ribs seemed to poke through the plain white leotard she wore. A single spotlight followed her every movement, and then the screens on either side of the stage flickered to life, projecting her image. Lilting music began to play and a hush fell over the crowd.

As she spun around in circles on point, trapeze artists swung across the stage above her, flipping around in mid air.  Two other performers peddled on tricycles with giant front wheels.  The music became more and more frenzied and the spotlights pulsed and strobed on each performer as they swung around.

I didn’t notice the man step from the shadows behind the ballerina until the music came to a stop.  The other performers disappeared. With one arm clamped around her waist, he pulled her head back to the side, exposing her neck to the spotlight.  He paused and grinned, I could barely see more of him than his teeth, as if he pondered his next move.  She held still and graceful, even under siege. Then, in a move almost too fast for the human eye to process, he pressed his mouth to her neck until her body went limp and fell to the ground.

The house lights went down and the crowd went wild. My hands were still clutched together in my lap, heart pounding like crazy. Immortal Dilemma played vampires on their TV show, but I knew it was an act, just like that performance.  Vampires weren’t real.

The girls around me rose to their feet, screaming and crying.  Some jumped up and down.  The emotion in the room pulsed and throbbed like the strobe lights overhead, making my head spin. Beside me Keisha was already on her feet, and with my knees trembling, I stood as the curtain fell.

The lights shined just on the drummer, who seemed to be the only member of the band on the stage.  His sticks flew against the skin of the drums, the thuds and riffs ripping through the silence like fireworks.  As his solo drew to a close, giant flash pans of fire shot up in time with each strike. The heat exploded through the theater, warming me even all the way up in the balcony.

And with the last pound of the drums, the rest of the band rose up through the floor on giant pedestals.

The whole place shook with the screams of the crowd.

Tristan commanded on the left side of the stage, in a direct line with my seat.  His dark hair was long, flowing free, and his face was painted in some sort of elaborate skeleton design that was almost pretty.  Under his guitar, he wore a red fuzzy coat, open, with no shirt underneath and black shiny pants that looked like they had been poured around the shape of his body.  Standing on the pedestal, he played his guitar with his head tipped back and his eyes closed, swaying to the beat, as if he was trying to sense his way through the music.  He was eerily peaceful, somehow still beautiful, drenched in red light.

The pedestals lowered to stage level, and Tristan sprang onto the stage. He roamed back and forth along the crowd, whipping his hair around, teasing the audience members in the front rows by leaning over them with his guitar but staying just out of reach. Anytime he threw guitar picks to the crowd, a heap of humanity fought for the small piece of plastic he had held.

He smiled wide, showing those horrible, horrible fangs. I hated that part of his costume. They made him look like a monster. His eyes scanned the audience, seeming to look directly into mine. My stomach clenched.  Even way back in the balcony, I felt as if he played just for me.

GMTA VIRTUAL TOURS PRESENTS A Season Without Rain by Joe Schwartz

Title: A Season Without Rain

Author: Joe Schwartz

Genre: Fiction

Length: 348 pages

Release Date: November 2013

ISBN-13: 978-1493513390

Imprint: GMTA Publishing

Book Description

Jacob Miller is angry with himself, the world, and God. Life

seems so unfair, so cruel, that he can’t imagine why anyone even tries. After

having a nervous breakdown, selling his business, filing for bankruptcy, having

a baby, and finding out he owes over twenty grand in taxes, he is hardly happy

to be alive.

In the span of a year, Jacob will discover three very

important things about life. Things can always be worse. There really is a God.

And if you wait long enough anything can change.

A Season Without Rain explores that gray area between

poverty and middle class life, the struggling underclass for whom there are no

advocates. A powerful story told in a modern, everyday voice that will entrench

readers in Jacob Miller’s black world of anger, hate, resentment, lies, and

violence.

A Season Without Rain is Joe Schwartz’s first novel. His

previous short story collections Joe’s Black T-Shirt, The Games Men Play, and

The Veiled Prophet of St. Louis have been acclaimed vulgar as Bukowski and

visceral as Carver. Joe lives and works in St. Louis happily writing stories

exclusively about the Gateway City.

Joe Schwartz

A St. Louis native, I write exclusively about the Gateway

City. I prefer the style of fiction deemed transgressive fiction. That is my

stories protagonists generally find a solution to their problems through either

illicit or illegal means. I personally prefer stories told through a criminal’s

point-of-view. It is never the crime that fascinates me so much as the

motivation to do it and the terrible, almost predictable outcomes to such

actions. Just as I have an expectation of writing to be read I believe that it

is as important, if not more so, that you as a reader should have the

expectation of being entertained as you read. Anything less is such a

disappointment.

Life is short. Stories are forever. –Joe

I got a copy of A Season Without rain from the publisher for an honest review.
I must confess, that this isn’t my genre of choice. I like to help out where I can and started to read A Season without Rain by Joe Schwartz.

But I must also admit, that I wasn’t once not connected to this story. Joe has a gift for telling a story. You feel what his characters feel, your senses goes crazy wild through out this novel. His characters are so well developed and my emotions were up and down the whole time. Joe has done an amazing job with A Season without Rain and I would recommend this to everyone that wants to read something different. I love the cover, for some reason it didn’t speak to me in the beginning but after I finished this novel, it was the right choice.

Love your work, Joe, and I’ll definitely read something of yours again.

Kind Wishes,

Excerpt

“I apologize for the delay, Abaddon.”

I turned my head to find Eran standing beside me, no more than a few inches away.

Excitement swelled inside me, so powerful I couldn’t have contained it if I’d wanted to. The nervousness now displayed on Abaddon’s face gave me even stronger encouragement.

I wanted so desperately to reach out and wrap my arms around Eran, wanted it more than anything in the world. My desperate yearning was only being held back because I still couldn’t move.

I’m not sure Eran would have allowed it anyways. He was a warrior, and he was now engaged in battle. Besides, I was nothing more to him than someone to save.

Eran didn’t look my way but kept his focus on Abaddon, who stepped back a few paces, his confidence faltering.

It was Sarai who strolled forward, self-assured, placing herself in the middle.

As she strolled by Abaddon, she mused, “Don’t worry, I believe I can handle this one.” Her face curled up into a hideous grin as she continued her approach.

I knew then what she planned…but it was too late.

“Eran, so good to see you again…” she whispered in a low drawl.

“No!” I screamed enraged, waiting for Eran to fall to the ground, whimpering with desperation as Rufus had done.

Eran remained standing.

A moment passed and Sarai’s face contorted, confusion setting in. Her state of shock became more defined, deepening further when he finally replied.

“You don’t work on me, Sarai…” I watched in disbelief as his gorgeous smirk, the one I missed so deeply, rose up. Eran turned and his stunning eyes settled on me, concentrating so intently I could not have mistaken his message. “I’m already in love.”

The world changed for me at that moment. As Eran’s confession hung in the air, I felt the passion and the power in me swell. Nothing was impossible now.

Sarai’s mouth fell open, a shaken sigh escaping. She then looked at me, her eyes narrowing in fury as Eran’s words sunk in.

Eran flippantly disregarded her, turning to address Abaddon. “You are outnumbered. You are overpowered. You have allowed yourself to be cornered. Shoddy work, Abaddon.”

As I watched their interaction, it dawned on me that Eran was enjoying this moment and that it appeared to have been long overdue. I felt a smile on my lips, nearly causing me to giggle.

It was then Abaddon released me. I fell to the ground, hitting it hard but overwhelmed with relief. I glanced up, wondering what power Eran had over Abaddon to give up his hold on me.

In an instant, I realized what had happened.

Abaddon had let me go willingly. He needed his energy – all of it – for another reason…

Leaning forward, Abaddon’s arms extended, his feet sweeping up from the ground, as he lunged for Eran.

Kind Wishes,
