Black Ruins Blood by by @AuthorKDuBose | Book Tour & $5 Amazon GC #Giveaway | @SDSXXTours Presents #YA Epic #Fantasy



Black Ruins Blood
The Elder Series Book 2
by Karen DuBose
Genre: Dark Fantasy


I thought coming to the Black Ruins Forest would give me the answers to the questions I so desperately needed. Instead I have more questions and no answers. 


Now here I am trying to figure out how to destroy the oldest and strongest dragons who are the Elders to become the next ruler of Zilo. No problem, right? Yeah, not as easy as it sounds. 


The forest will only keep us a safe for so long before the Elders find out where we are. If they find us, we are all dead. So, here we sit trying to figure out a way to make it through alive. 

The best part out of all of this I've gained a huge family I never knew I wanted and the worst part is now I have more enemies I never even knew existed. Around every turn there is something or someone else we need to deal with.

Fate really hates me! She twisted my lifecycle apart and spit me out. I will never be the same person again. That's what scares me the most.




Black Ruins Forest
The Elder Series Book 1


Dariya's daydreams have gotten her in trouble more than once, yet she can't help but dream about what shifter she will be. Graduation is now upon them, and Dariya is looking forward to working at the Zilo Firm, gain her independence, and become the woman she always dreamt of becoming. However, fate has other plans. The mysterious guy who's been in her dreams turns out to be real and he works at her firm. Her best friend and protector, Kira, will stop at nothing to make sure Dariya is safe from harm, but the elders have other plans. Every decision and every move can either mean her death, or ultimate power.




I write Fantasy Romance with a twist. I plan on writing in more genre's. I live in a small town in east Tennessee with my loving husband and 5 furbabies. I love living in the mountains.

Lex Talonis by @GregVSmith48 | Book Tour & eBooks #Giveaway | @SDSXXTours Presents #Action #Crime #Thriller


Lex Talonis: An Eye For an Eye
Kramer & Shadow Crime Series Book 3
by Greg Smith
Genre: Action Crime Thriller


One woman’s thirst for revenge unleashes the dogs of war in this action crime thriller. The first stage of her plan makes 9/11 pale in comparison – but she is not finished. She has one more target in her sights.



When investigations into a huge diamond heist point to their nemesis, Shelley Harper, being involved, Kramer and his canine partner, Shadow, are forced to take on a new team member. As they chase down the diamonds they uncover the truth behind the theft. Harper has joined forces with an international terrorist organization and intends using them and the diamonds as part of her diabolical plan to exact retribution from America on a monumental scale for the deaths of her family.



This is a strong story with an intriguing premise; one that can easily become all too real in this day and age. Kramer must struggle with his own doubts and demons as he leads his team against a malevolent opponent. They are faced with an almost untenable situation; one that has their survival highly questionable.

Who will be left standing when the dust settles?

Smith is the Hemmingway of crime fiction. Brutal, concise, and elegant.”
David Bailey, English Professor
Director and CEO at Bailey Education Professionals






You Can Run
Kramer & Shadow Crime Series Book 2


U.S. Marines, Capt. Kramer and his dog Sgt. Shadow survive hell in Afghanistan — but worse awaits them back home.



HOLD ON FOLKS!!! YOU CAN RUN is not your average crime thriller. Full of crime, absolutely! A thrilling ride, most definitely! But Greg Smith takes it up a couple of notches, pulls you, the reader, into a dangerous, action-packed FBI operation. You enter the world of 2 U.S. Marines who offer their services to bring down a diabolical kingpin.






The Pits
Kramer & Shadow Crime Series Book 1

After nearly 20 years serving in the Marine Corps, Captain Kramer thought he'd been prepared for anything life had to throw him. He returns from deployment to Afghanistan with a new dog, Shadow. Back in Oceanside, California he and Shadow are drawn into a struggle to oust local gangs involved in a bloody sport. Kramer and Shadow's activities capture the attention of the FBI who quickly enlist their help in an operation to bring down a major crime lord based in Florida. Captain Kramer, USMC and Corporal Shadow, USMC soon find themselves in their deadliest fight ever.








Even as a young child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. Since then, I’ve progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways.
Originally from Sydney, Australia, I moved to America in 1999 and now live with my wife, Trish, Sydney, our 12 year old Border Collie, and part-Bengal cat, The General (Bugsy), in our 36ft 5th wheel as we travel and explore the United States.

The advent of retirement opened a whole new world to me and now that it has come to pass, I am turning my artistic bent from graphic design and illustration to that of writing.



The Kramer and Shadow series is an action, adventure, crime thriller series that encompasses the world and has our two Marines fighting hard against organized crime at many levels - but always involving do-or-die confrontations.



My hope is to establish a fan base for my writing so that my readers can have an active role in helping me grow and develop as an author in the years to come. I invite you to join me in this adventure.

Author Q&A ft @bethanyblakeau1 | PAWS AND PREDICAMENTS Book Tour | #Giveaway: Set of Lucky Paws Petsitting Mysteries & Swag | GREAT ESCAPES TOURS Presents #CozyMystery

PAWS AND PREDICAMENTS (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery) by Bethany Blake. The cozy mystery is on virtual book tour and stops at Readeropolis with an author interview. 

!!There is a bonus giveaway at this stop!!

Be sure to enter for a chance to win the giveaways (U.S. only) and follow the Great Escapes book tour (for other dates see the link at the bottom of the post).


 



Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
My intended audience is anyone who likes to solve a puzzle—and be immersed in a quaint town full of cute shops, wonderful restaurants, adorable pets and quirky, personality-filled characters. When I dreamed up the town of Sylvan Creek and populated it with pet sitter and sleuth Daphne Templeton and friends, my goal was to create a cozy world that readers would want to return to again and again.


Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
My favorite character is my heroine, Daphne. She’s got a doctorate in philosophy, but she’s quite content taking care of animals and living life on a shoestring budget in her little home, Plum Cottage. Throughout the Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery series, Daphne becomes more responsible. But she never loses her core contentment with who she is.


How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealing to you?
I have a love-hate relationship with Daphne’s mother, Realtor Maeve Templeton. She’s completely overbearing, focused on the bottom line and, worst of all, doesn’t like dogs! But she’s also kind of a hoot!


Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:
In many ways, I’m very different from my main character. She’s much more of a free spirit. But, for a while, I was a pet sitter with a Ph.D.!



What other books are similar to your own?  What makes them alike?
My books are probably comparable to Krista Davis’s novels, because the setting of my novels, Sylvan Creek, is very pet-friendly. Dogs and cats are welcome just about everywhere.


How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

The Tail Waggin’ Winterfest is the highlight of the season in the famously pet-friendly Pocono Mountains town of Sylvan Creek. But despite attractions like an ice sculpture display, a dogsled race, and gourmet hot chocolate, Daphne Templeton finds herself annoyed by TV producer Lauren Savidge, who’s filming the festivities. She’s critical, controlling, and as chilly as the January air. Daphne would like to tell her to go jump in a lake—and as a matter of fact, that’s exactly what they’re both going to do . . .

It’s the first-ever polar bear plunge in Lake Wallapawakee, and Daphne and Lauren are among the eighty or so people who charge into the frigid water to raise funds for animals in need. Daphne makes it back to shore—with the help of a mysterious St. Bernard—but Lauren is dragged out stone cold dead. Now, with her trusty basset hound Socrates at her side, Daphne intends to assist Detective Jonathan Black in his investigation—whether he wants her to or not . . .

Includes recipes for homemade pet treats!

Author Q&A ft Nollen Bradley | Guardian Unforgiven Book Tour & #Giveaway | @SDSXXTours Presents Erotic Werewolf #Thriller

Guardian Unforgiven by Nollen Bradley is on virtual book tour. The erotic werewolf thriller stops at Readeropolis today with an author interview. 

Be sure to enter for a chance to win the giveaway and follow the Silver Dagger book tour (for other dates see the link at the bottom of the post).



Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Usually something happens to me, some event gives me inspiration. Then shortly after I’ll hear a song that reminds me of what happened and it appears. I start thinking of the plot, story lines dialogue and characters.

Like with Guardian unforgiven I had an experience baling hay in a field giving me the creeps, if you know what I mean. Then I was listening to Metallica’s songs Unforgiven 1, 2 and 3. That’s when the entire story unfolded.

How did you do research for your book?
That’s a good question, most everything geographical I already knew. The story itself was pretty easy. After being a Paramedic for twelve years, you study people in unusual circumstances.

Now the werewolf part… that was just a lot of hours on the internet with some unusual conversations with the wife over what she saw on my web browser.

I’m currently doing research for a historical romance that I started and am taking a trip to South Dakota to research some things. So, travel is not out of the question. I want things to be as realistic and accurate as they possible can. Especially when it came to the erotic parts.

Do you have another profession besides writing?
I farm here in Kansas but not like I once did or in the way we once did. Writing is my full-time profession.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Probably the old west. I think back then things were just as complicated as they are now. But, the complications were different.

What is your next project?
Well, I am just about finished with the second book in the Guardian Unforgiven series which will be out soon.

I also hope to have the third book in the series out by March or April 2018.
As, I mentioned earlier I am working on a Historical Romance which will take me a while due to all the research that is involved.   

Guardian Unforgiven
Werewolves Awakened #1
by Nollen Bradley
Genre: Erotic Werewolf Thriller
403 pages

The werewolf, most believe to be folklore or legend. For centuries, the existence of werewolves were kept secret and guarded by a warrior class of lycan descended from a fierce ancient line known as the Guardians. These Guardians, sworn to uphold the peace between the wolf and humans. But, some werewolves not satisfied with living in secrecy start lashing out, hunting and killing all with the ancient gene to push humanity into extinction.


Now, only a few descendants are left with the cursed bloodline, some don’t even know they have… 

"I read the book one Saturday afternoon in about 3 1/2 hours straight. While I wanted to take a break, I found myself simply unable to put it down until reaching the end. ALL GOOD! Touché. Excellent story. Excellent plot…” Amazon Review July 4, 2017


"There are a lot of great action sequences throughout the book, and each chapter builds upon the last. The author does a great job with setting the scene and describing the characters in the story, it was like watching a movie in my head…” Amazon Review June 27, 2017




Nollen Bradley is a pen name for Bradley Noll an American author residing near Leavenworth Kansas. The married, father of two grown children is new to the published author scene even though he has been writing song lyrics, poems and short stories all of his life.

Brad grew up on a farm outside of Winchester Kansas learning the value of hard work. Following college, Brad spent twelve years as a Paramedic until his second back surgery ending his successful career where he received several letters of commendation.
Brad spent time farming in his off days feeling the everyday pressures of the weather, markets and juggling the debt that is associated with large business. All the while, continuing to write songs and preform at local venues. Following a music CD he produced named “Make Believe” with eleven of his original songs and while in the process of producing his second Album he realized his talent was more suited for writing then music.
 One day it snapped and with Brad’s influences like Merle Haggard, Chris Kristofferson, Hank Jr., Metallica and most of all “The Man in Black” Johnny Cash. Brad’s mentors show as in the words from the poem 'Looking Down'
I pulled my cowboy hat down low, Drank down my last swallow,
Of Kentucky Bourbon and coke,
As the World was spinning round, I knew I have to slow it down,
Cause I’m going nowhere fast, staring at the bottom of this glass…” Nollen Bradley 2010
     
 Embracing the concept to ask the question “Why so many lose and so few win?” Rooting for the underdog’s the longshot’s just like himself. The ones that are not supposed to make it but push and fight with everything they have and despite the odds, they still try.
Don’t let the rough exterior fool you, for inside Brad is the heart of a poet. Sometimes a tortured soul haunted by memories or questions. A helpless romantic as seen in the poem 'When We Flew'
“…Guess now, I can look back to then, How I can’t help but smile,
Through these tears that hide the pain, I think of you…  every memory remains,
But, when we flew Girl we were something to see,
Higher than one life could ever be,
we flew so high we no longer believed… so we lost those dreams,
It saddens me, until I think about, when we flew Girl, cause we were something to see…” Nollen Bradley 2011
Brad takes the experience from the sweat stinging his eyes from the heat on a hot July day in Kansas. The heartache from having to tell a parent or a child that their loved one has died and there was nothing he could do, to the struggles of trying to pursue a dream and watching it crumble in front of him. Brad has developed a style that draws on real life experiences to provide exciting yet believable story lines that captivate readers. Writing unbelievable tales with the realism of the struggles from everyday life in the painful cookie cutter suburban age.
