TIME TO VOTE for the title of Tatchi's Novella

Please vote for your favorite title for Tatchi's novella. I've chosen my favorite suggestions from the previous post. For duplicate entries, I'm honoring the person who posted the idea first.

PREMISE: This novel is about Tatchi's stolen/forced promise (or marriage) to a man she hates, and now because of the merkiss, her feelings betray her and she cannot live without him--love/hate in the strongest meaning of the words. She's also separated from her family and forced to live in a culture opposite her beliefs. Her future involves her eventually becoming the Queen, so she has to mind her manners and their traditions. All of it is a living hell for her. So, the title needs to portray these ideals.

You can only vote once, so vote wisely.

Contest runs to Saturday, March 10th
Good Luck!!

Have fun!

Evergreen Cover Release

Drum roll..... Tada! What do you think?

A kingdom on the brink of war.
A king on the fringes of insanity.
A family running for their lives.

Ash and Fin’s only desire is to be together and dive into their happily ever after, though their conflicting worlds work to pull them apart. Neither is ready to convert to the other’s life: become a human or a mer. Little do they know that somewhere in Natatoria a secret holds the fine fabric of everyone’s lives together. If the truth is discovered, Ash and Fin will no longer have the luxury of waiting. They’ll be forced to choose. But will it be for loyalty or love? Or will someone else make the choice for them if they can’t decide?

Enter the watery world of treachery, greed, and the binding mer kiss as the story continues with Evergreen, book two of Mer Tales.

Coming June of 2012. I'm excited and... I have a lot of work to do!

Devotion, by Kristie Cook, Review Blog Tour

I'm happy to announce the book birthday of a dear friend and author, Kristie Cook. The wait for Devotion, book #3, is over and it's finally here! Having been on a similar journey as Kristie, I can vouch that she's probably at home, nervous, excited, and giddy as her fans devour the next in the Soul Savers Series. Let her know you love it and post a review on Amazon, B&N and Goodreads, will ya?

I promise you, you won't be disappointed. Devotion is INCREDIBLE and totally worth the wait!

With powerful abilities gained from the Ang’dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she’s ready for the next challenge— protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis.

Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they’ll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis’ protection. The couple’s own society begins to shut them out. But that’s not all.

Someone’s keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time.

But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test—devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs—leaving her to question whom she’s fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won’t fight . . . who will?
I don't want to spoil anything for you by telling too much, but it's a page-turner and half the time I wasn't sure if I was rooting for the right people. Kristie keeps readers on their toes as she paints the scene with her words and leads readers on a wild goose chase. There's were-lions, were-tigers, were-alligators, Oh my! The Amadis is also  revealed and you'd think, for those sided with the angels, they'd be safe, right? *insert buzzer noise* Devotion is filled with love, passion, family, friendship, betrayal, lies, and treachery so deep, you want to wring someone's neck. I know for those who love the series are going to be up long hours deep into the night to find out what happens next.

Where to buy:

If you are new in hearing about the series, these are the order of the books:

Now go out and GET IT!

Hugs, Brenda
