Series Spotlight!

Christine James is an amazingly talented author. She recently put out a call asking for bloggers to help her promo her newest book, Final Redemption. It is the final installment in her Chosen Chronicles series.

I jumped at the chance. I read the 1st book in the series, Risen, which I really enjoyed. The reason I haven’t read the 2nd is because I’ve been trying to focus on my own writing. Obviously, since book 3, just released today I haven’t gotten the opportunity read it. Both book 2 and 3 are on my to-be-read list. 

On to the spotlight though…

Witness the Beginning…

A single night at the annual town carnival will change Erin’s life forever.  The simple visit to a bizarre and mysterious fortune teller was supposed to be fun and harmless, but turned into something much worse. Scared to death by what the decrepit woman reveals, Erin quickly flees and quite literally collides with Angelo, a mysterious and captivating carnival worker. Later that night, he appears in her dreams but he’s not the only one visiting her slumber. Evil is lurking on the edge of the shadows and it’s coming for her.

Angelo is not what he seems, but then again no one ever is. Not even Erin.

Tragedy strikes, leaving Erin devastated and alone, forcing her with no other option to but to trust Angelo. Loyalties are tested and lines of friendship begin to blur as long hidden truths come to light. Fate begins to bear down upon them all. Everyone has secrets but when some turn out to be more than heart wrenching, Erin has to decide who she can trust.

Can Erin deal with the harsh past that Angelo has been hiding from her or will it prevent her from doing what she’s been chosen to do?

Witness the beginning. . . of the End.

The nephilim couldn’t be more fractured than what they are right now! They’ve lost loved ones and have been betrayed by the people closest to them.  Their friendships have been tested and one by one they have turned on each other. They still need the seventh member to complete the full Chosen circle. Blinded by anger and grief, they are unable to focus on the task at hand.

 The ultimate threat has arrived, Lilith, but she is not alone.  With her comes a more sinister force that has ever been seen. The end is finally here.

 

About the Author:

Image

Christine comes from southern Missouri and is a country girl through and through. In addition to writing, she loves to camp, fish and play in the mud.  As a stay at home mom of two boys, she appreciates the escape a good book can create and she strives to create that for others. She considers her boys her real angels and by becoming an author she wants to show them that their dreams can come true.

Her favorite actor is Johnny Depp, because who’s isn’t and her current television obsession The Walking Dead.

Her husband has been her cheerleader as she strives to achieve her writing goals; he’s helped pick her up and dusted her off when she went through rejections; he laughs with her, and more times than not he laughs AT her.  But more importantly he’s there to lend her a shoulder for her to cry on. He’s her rock but more importantly she considers him her best friend.

The thing Christine loves the most, outside of writing and her family, is making people laugh. People come and go from our lives, influencing and changing us in all kinds of ways.  Sometimes the influences are positive, but then again, some are negative.  If we use the negative as a tool for learning, we could very well change or even save someone’s life down the road.  She strives to be the type of person that touches someone’s life in a positive way, even if it is by writing a book. She believes that if only a quarter of the people in the world would loosen up and smile, it would be a better place.

 If she could share one message with the world, it would be that nothing is impossible and you should never stop following your dreams.

Friday Fake!

Catching Fire released today.

Guess what that means…yep, a Friday Fake with

Katniss, Peeta, and Gale.

I read all three of these books, before the 1st movie came out. I’d rate them a solid 4 out of 5 stars, for each book. While I enjoyed the movie, the books gave me a much deep look into Katniss and the others.

That said, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Lenny Kavitz did a terrific job of bringing the characters to life.

Haymitch was my favorite, though Woody Harrelson didn’t make the Friday Fake cut this week.

Katniss/Jennifer, I know when you’re in the arena, you’re busy trying to keep you and Peeta safe, but when/if you ever get some down time, sit back and enjoy the writing of yours truly.

Image

Peeta – I like you. I really do. You’re such a likable guy, and smart to boot.

you’re the kind of guy a girl should end up with 😉

Image

Gale/Liam – I would much rather have you with me in the arena than Peeta, then I could at least hold out hope that your God-like brother would save us.

Happy Friday!

Friday Fake featuring Matt Damon…

Me: So, whatcha doin’ there Matt Damon?

M.D.: I thought I’d take a little time off promoting my new movie Elysium and read City of the Gods: The Descendant. I’ve heard its good, so I thought I would give it shot. So far, so good. I also hear the follow up book, City of the Gods: The Betrayal will be out sometime this fall. I’m going to have to pick up that one as well.

Me: Well, I’ll leave you to it then. Happy reading!
