Sun Damage Blog Tour + Guest Post +Giveaway!



Sun Damage Synopsis:

Life wasn't what Sophie was expecting, so why should death be any different? 
She’s come back from swimming between the two, and every problem she left is still there. And then some.
There’s the human world, where she has a brother on the verge of ruins, band mates all set to go on tour, and people she thought she wouldn't be seeing for a long time showing up.
Then there’s her new world, where she’s seeing and hearing things that should not be heard or seen. Where Myles knows more about her than she could have ever guessed. She still doesn't know exactly why Michael is tormenting her, but somehow, everything is connected.
The monsters are closing in on all sides and the question is, will Sophie be able to defeat them before it all ends?

A Day in The Life of Nikki Rae
A lot of people want to know what a typical day for me is like. I don’t think it’s anything special, but I guess it’s kind of hard juggling everything. I’m a writer, a student, and I have a part time job as well. I have assignments, reading, research papers and books to write and promote. A lot of people ask me how I do it all, and I never know how to answer them.
The thing is, I don’t know.

I wake up early and go to bed late.
Insomnia helps a lot. When you don’t really sleep, you have more time to get things done.

A typical day is waking up at six or seven, doing promotional work and sending emails until I have class, and then actually going to class. When I come home, I spend some time with my boyfriend or playing board games with my friends. Then I write or edit until midnight or later. It’s not like that every day. Sometimes I hang around the house and watch Netflix, sometimes I go out (if I have to). Sometimes I read for eight hours straight and don’t remember how I got there or how it got so late. Sometimes I do my homework when it isn’t due for two weeks, sometimes I do it an hour before class.

If you love something, you make time for it. It’s that simple. I fell in love with writing at a very young age, and I’ve written every day since I discovered how much I loved it. I also love the other aspects of being an indie author. The fact that I do all the work, that I connect with all of these readers and bloggers and other authors. It’s a sense of control that I don’t have in many other aspects of my life, and it’s the most fulfilling thing to me.
That isn’t to say I don’t have days where I feel off. I think people get this impression of me that I’m this sort of machine, pumping out new material all the time. I’m human. I get sad, I get blocked, I have days where all I want to do is watch the entire series of Breaking Bad and not move from the couch.
If no one wanted to read what I wrote, I would still write. No matter how many plates I have to keep spinning, Writing is the one that never falls to the ground. It’s the thing that makes me get out of bed when I’m sad, the thing that motivates me to keep going when bad things happen.

So I don’t know how entertaining a day in my life would be to someone else. Honestly, I don’t think I do much. I just do what I’ve always done. Write. Then I fill in school, work, and relationships between the writing.

Book Blurb
She has a secret.
I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated. I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn't realized how far I could fall or what I'd do to get free. He has a secret. I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want. I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go. One secret destroys them.

Teaser

Hazel:
It was the best kiss I’d ever received, but also the worst. It sparked lust and need in every inch of me. My lips wanted more, my tongue wanted savagery. My skin wanted to bruise because he needed to touch me so badly. All my thoughts disappeared as I nipped at his bottom lip. He flinched, but a second later he copied, his sharp canines piercing my oversensitive flesh. I moaned. I couldn’t take it. My hands flew up and gripped his shirt. Yanking him toward me, fireworks whizzed in my fingertips; my heart galloped toward exploding with lust. I’d never been so drunk on someone before. Then I landed flat on my back. The crack of my skull jangled my teeth. The thick carpet did little to cushion me. My eyes flared wide and I grunted in pain. Fear, hot and terrible, swamped my lust in a dampening wave. “Top rule. Unbreakable rule. Don’t. Ever. Touch. Me.” Fox kneeled on one knee beside my head, breathing hard. His hand noosed my throat, pressing my spine into the carpet. His eyes were cold and lifeless, looking like a hunter intent on blood.

Five ARCs Giveaway of Unnatural by J.A. Belfield from J. Taylor Publishing!

J. Taylor Publishing are giving away FIVE ARCs of Unnatural by J.A. Belfield!

Check it out!

Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen—his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female. The first two, he blames on the vampire venom. The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing—a female of whom the pack will never approve. As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own. No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can. Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle’s left to fight battles he’s unsure how to win—some of them even against his own pack. Is one woman really so important that he’s willing to defy his Alpha for her? If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.
A great addition to the Holloway Pack, UNNATURAL will please both veterans of the series and new readers alike. It also just might be the paranormal romance you've all been waiting for.
And J. Taylor Publishing is giving away FIVE ARC copies.

"Hey.” She grabbed my chin and turned my eyes to hers. "I realized something about you long ago, Ridge Wild.”
"Oh yeah?” I tipped my head and smiled at her.
"Other than you have a smile that melts panties.” She smacked my cheek playfully.
"Other than that.”
"We don’t have to fix each other. We don’t need to. You’re not perfect, and I’m not perfect, but we’re perfect together. It was never about fixing you; it was always about loving you.” She dusted a kiss along the corner of my mouth.
My eyes danced around her dark features, soaking her up, before I pulled her in tighter to my body and planted a kiss on her lips.
I realized finding her, fighting for her, was about forgiveness, some twisted sense of retribution, coming to terms with our pasts and learning that they don’t define us, but only serve to shape us, make us who we are, make us better people.
As I looked at her, I realized I had two options. I could go back in the direction I’d come from, or I could go forward in the direction I wanted to go.
I was shit without her, but fortunately, when I was with her, she was my other half. My matching piece. My mirror image. My perfect opposite.
When I met her, I'd found me.

Behind every beautiful thing, there is some kind of pain... Always overlooked. Always just there. That's what Dillon was to me. Until one night. In one night she flipped my world on its axis and there's no going back. But she has secrets, and secrets fester like an open wound. They color the past and forecast the future, but I'm determined to open her up; free her from her memories so she can live in the light and have the life she deserves. It's just too bad that she wants nothing to do with me. But I'm nothing if not persistent and I'm not a man that gives up without a fight. I've had a taste and there's no walking away. I just have to convince her that I'm not what she fears, I'm what she wants. Slade, like Wild and Ridge, is a standalone.

nikki 
From 3 March till 6 March the first book in the Nikki Powergloves series will be free.
 
Nikki Powergloves - a Hero is Born (Nikki Powergloves #1)
by David Estes
Blurb: Perfect for kids aged 7-10 or advanced younger readers aged 4-6!!

Nikki Nickerson hates her name and her boring life as a nine-year-old in the small town of Cragglyville. That is, until she finds a disappearing path into a forest that is rumored to be haunted. At the end of the trail, she and her dog, Mr. Miyagi, find a beautiful treasure chest, standing ready for her to claim.

What does the chest contain? Gold? No. Diamonds? Nah. Money? Not even close. The chest contains twelve multi-colored gloves. Nikki’s disappointment quickly morphs into delight when she discovers that the gloves are much more than just a cheesy fashion accessory. You see, each pair of gloves gives her a different power, such as stopping time or super-strength.

With a little help from her best friend, Spencer Quick, Nikki Nickerson is transformed into Nikki Powergloves, crime-fighting superhero. But every hero needs a villain and she soon finds hers in the form of Jimmy Powerboots, a smug and misguided youth who uncovers a similar treasure and chooses to use his newfound powers for evil. Nikki must find a way to de-boot her arch nemesis and stop his maniacal plans.

Excerpt
I hovered over her sweet body, the soft flesh beneath my fingers like fucking silk. Her hands laced in the rungs of the headboard above her head, propping her breasts high and full for me. Her head was thrown back in ecstasy, full lips formed in a a perfect O as moans escaped her throat. She was fucking stunning. I moved in and out of her, slowing my pace, hitting her as deep as I could, rounding my hips with each slow thrust and drag. She was everything, had been my everything for a few months, the only one that had ever gotten me. All of me. The me that no one else had ever seen. Fuck of it was, she was my brother’s fiancĂ©e. I’d fucking taken her right from under him. I hadn’t meant to, I don’t think she’d meant to either, it’d just happened one night, and there’d been no going back. And now here we were, months later, I was still plowing into her—taking her, owning her, making her mine—every fucking night in my bed, hearing her call my name, her eyes hazy with lust and love when I finished. Except tonight was different. Tonight was the last time. Tonight I was ending it. My heart clutched in my chest as the words floated through my head. My eyes burned with the pain of it. I didn’t want to let her go, but more than anything, I was sick of running. And seeing my brother again had finally opened my eyes. This was it.
