Midnight Dawn ~ a cover reveal


My friend and amazing author pen sister, Jocelyn Adams, has completed Book 2 in her Mortal Machine series.  I read book 1, Darkside Sun, and was floored by the story.  Of course, everything I’ve read by Jocelyn Adams has been fantastic.  This new story, Midnight Dawn, is sure to be unlike anything I’ve read before.  I know there were lots of sleepless nights and buckets of tears that went into writing this story, and I know it will hold me spellbound when I cuddle up with the final copy.  Until then, all I can do is look at this amazing cover and wait.

DARKSIDE SUN – a review


Entangled Embrace Publishing found a gem when they signed Jocelyn Adams to their lineup of authors.

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Adams for some time now. It all started with THE GLASS MAN and my addiction to her writing grew from there. After reading all of her works, I have to say DARKSIDE SUN is her best novel by far!

Wow, what a ride. I bought this e-book the day it came out and completed it in 24 hours. I simply could not put it down. Ms. Adams’ writing style had me hooked from Page 1. I’ve never read anyone like her. She has a unique way with words. She has a tone, pizzazz and umph that follows her throughout her books. When you pick up a Jocelyn Adams book, you know it, and it’s refreshing because you know you can expect well-written, thought-provoking prose that will grip you from beginning to end.

Her two main characters in DARKSIDE SUN had me wrapped around their little fingers from the moment I met them. Addison has been dealing with a terrifying paranormal activity for twelve years, since she was 6 years old. Now that she is older and in college, the activities are increasing. The reader becomes Addison. We experience everything with her as it happens to her, including seeing her hot professor, Asher Green, for the first time. OMGosh, my heart be still. Talk about a yummylicious heart throb you love to hate to love. Even when he’s being a douchebag, you, like Addison, can’t help but be majorly attracted to him. There is so much tantalizing heat between these two that will make all the women readers out there swoon, yet Ms. Adams treats the sexual tension with respect and dignity, giving only enough away to keep us wishing for more. In between all that hotness, however, is a vulnerability in both Addison and Asher. They are incredibly flawed in so many ways, yet Ms. Adams geniously intertwines their strengths and vulnerabilities, neither outweighing the other. Brilliant.

The plot had me engrossed from the beginning. Ms. Adams has a unique way to weave the reader in and out of this creepy, wraith-filled world, taking them through the mulitiple layers and dimensions she created for this paranormal masterpiece. It was a non-stop journey for 302 pages and the last paragraph is a doozie. It left me spell-bound and breathless. I wanted more. I always do from this author. DARKSIDE SUN didn’t disappoint.

I give this novel 5 stars for originality, complexity, gravitational pull, sexual tension and just downright honest to goodness solid writing. The story flowed so well I forgot I was reading. It will be interesting to see how Ms. Adams tops this novel.

My only complaint with DARKSIDE SUN is in its cover. It does not convey the intensity of this story or the powerful paranormality of it. This is no fault of the author’s. If I was not a fan of Ms. Adams, I don’t think I would have picked this one up because the cover is so plain, unenticing. Entangled Publishing, please consider a more intense cover with the next book in the series, one that reflects the fierceness, the magnitude that is DARKSIDE SUN and its heroine, Addison. Speaking of which, there is a ‘next’, right? I rub my hands together in anticipation.

Darkside Sun – Happy Book Birthday!!


One of my fave authors has a new book out today – DARKSIDE SUN.  I have been waiting for so long to get this book in my hands.  Well, today I purchased it for .99 and so can you.  What are you waiting for?   This book is just one more fantastic story by Jocelyn Adams.  Get your copy.  I’m sure you’ll agree.

Back cover:  Addison Beckett tries hard to pretend she’s normal, but she’s far from it. Since she was six years old, she’s seen the world around her unraveling, as if someone is pulling a thread from a sweater and it’s all slowly coming undone. When she ignores it, it goes away, so that’s what she does.
Enter her arrogant-but-hot professor Asher Green. He knows all about her special brand of crazy. In fact, he might be just as nuts as she is. Asher insists that the dead from a parallel dimension are trying to possess the living in this one. And since Addison seems to be the only one who can see these “wraiths,” she just might be the key to saving the world.
Addison wants nothing to do with Asher or his secret society, The Mortal Machine. But as their animosity grows, she finds it harder and harder to ignore the chemistry between them. And when she discovers that Machine laws forbid her from touching him, she realizes that’s all she wants to do.
Stop the wraiths. Break the rules. Save the world. All in a day’s work.
Normal was overrated, anyway.

Stone Cold – a new book by Jocelyn Adams


Jocelyn Adams, one of my favorite authors, has a new book coming out in April and I am super stoked. Her writing style and the way she can turn a phrase excites the writer and reader in me.  I’m part of a writer’s group that she is in, and I have to tell you folks, every word she writes is a labor of love.  She’s dynamic as an individual and an author and is a huge inspiration for me.  I am thrilled to see yet another one of her amazing books come to life.  It is a must read so make sure you add it to your TBR list today.

Oh, and what about that cover, huh, ladies??

Seven-Sentence Monday


Jocelyn Adams, author of the Lila Gray series (among other fantastic tales), tagged me on Facebook for a seven-sentence reveal.  As a lot of you don’t have Facebook accounts, I thought it would be fun to post the same thing here and then I’ll tag all of you do the same.

What do you have to do to play along?  Go to either page 7 or 77 of your manuscript. Count down 7 lines, then copy the next 7 lines to your status.

Here’s an excerpt from my short story, Summerfirth.

“I love you, too.” I dabbed my eyes as Perdita slipped from the room. My best friend, my sister in every way but name, was gone. I would never see her again, not as long as she remained in Master Gowdry’s employ. I swallowed back the sickness rising in my throat. In less than an hour I would marry a man I did not love, a man whose lot in life was to kill the man I did. Never had I felt more alone, more afraid, more like thrusting a dagger in my heart.

So, what are your seven?  Tell us here or on your own blog.  Make sure you link back here so we can all read your snippet.

Happy Monday!

It’s a sad, sad day


I just learned the final novel in the Lila Gray series is soon coming to an end.  I have followed this series written by the incomparable Jocelyn Adams since the first novel, The Glass Man.  Then came Shadowborn, which I just received from the author and am sinking my teeth into.  I can’t believe the series is coming to an end with Rise of the Magi.

But isn’t the cover pretty?

Rise of the Magi by Jocelyn Adams

 Rise of the Magi

by Jocelyn AdamsRelease Date: June 4, 2013
Target Reader: Adult
Keywords: FantasyFairy

Back of the Book

In a battle of wills, who is strongest? The one who hates or the one who loves?

In a test of faith, who will fight the hardest? The one who has everything to lose or the one who believes only in herself?

For Lila Gray, the answer is both.For the Magi, the questions are pointless since they can’t lose, and they’ve been waiting since before Lila’s birth for this one moment. Lila only needs to find them to understand her entire purpose in life. This time, though, instead of protecting her people, Lila may be leading them all, including her unborn child and the man she loves, to their deaths — and not by accident.

In the ultimate trial of heart and soul, and the conclusion to the Lila Gray series, Lila will learn that the greatest weapon of war is herself, with one ultimate unknown. For which side will she fight?

So, what do you think?  I hope you check it out and love the series as much as I do.
