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? 


The Chosen Chronicles: Bloodlines




 Witness the rise of a new evil.

Lucifer is back in hell and the world is safe. Blaze and Angie have rekindled their relationship. But if Angie is supposed to be happy, why is she so restless?

The playing fields have shifted. As the Chosen race the clock, their battle against evil is about to get much more personal. And the war is only beginning…”


The Chosen Chronicles: Final Redemption




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:


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.

Flabbergasting Season Finales!

Holy Emotional Roller Coaster Batman! Some of my favorite TV shows had some EPIC season finales. I don’t know how I’m going to make it through the next few months without finding out what’s going to happen! Well…I suppose watching Falling Skies, True Blood, and So You think You Can Dance will keep me somewhat preoccupied. I hate to imagine how Game of Thrones is going to end. I’ll probably be a train wreck. Please check in with me on FB.  may need to be consoled or I may need people to throw a party with, either way, hit me up. I’ll be there for you too!

The following is a list of my favorite season finales this year. One pick for each day, minus Saturday. WARNING: There might be spoilers. Read at your own risk.




The Mentalist

My reaction? Much like the look on Lisbon’s face in the above picture. I read an interview with the show creator a few years ago. In that article he said the Jane and Lisbon would never be anything more than friends…LIAR! I should have known better than to believe that BS. Any hubble bubble, I liked this finale, not the strongest in my opinion, but I can’t wait to see where this leads next season. I wonder if they’ll be anything like one of my other favorite crime fighting couple…Caskett…speaking of Castle…




Castle – 

My reaction?      I JUST WANTED A GOSH DARN WEDDING!!!! The episode was fun. Love Beckett’s (ex)husband. Loved Beckett’s new wedding dress. It was gorgeous, much better than the original one. Hoping that whatever happened to Castle is cleared up quickly next season. I realize they had to bring in a new bad guy for Caskett to deal with, but I really wanted to see them get hitched.


I can’t pick just one show for this day. All the finales were amazing (in my opinion) for all these shows.



The Originals – 

My reaction? Tears…well almost, but if my daughter hadn’t been sitting there watching this with me, tears would have been streaming down my freakin’ face. Even my daughter looked at me at one point and said, ‘this is really sad mom’. I had to gulp back tears, look at her with my ugly refusing to cry face and say, ‘I know right?’

I have loved the whole season of this show. I honestly don’t know how they are going to top this season. 

Supernatural – 



My reaction? NOOOO!!!! Dean!!! NOOOOO!!! You can’t kill Dean….again! He’s my favorite! Oh wait! He’s ALIVE, but he’s now DEMON!! NOOOOOO!!! How the hell are they going to fix that??? Can’t wait to see Demon Dean kick some serious ass next season though.

Person of Interest – 



My reaction? Don’t break the gang up! The mid season finale was bad enough with the death of Carter, but now you’re going to break up the whole group??? *pouting* All I’m thinking at this point is that The Machine needs to show Samaritan who’s boss. More Root next season. I have a slight girl crush on Amy Acker. In fact more of Root and Shaw teaming up and kicking ass would be awesome!


Sorry Wednesday, you pale in comparison when it comes to TV shows. Wednesdays are good for Ghost Hunters (which is rarely on anymore) and American Horror Story (which had a good season, but ended awhile back. No need to rehash its ending).




The Vampire Diaries – 

My reaction? Again…TEARS! The only thing that saved me from blubbering everywhere was that my roomie was supposed to walk through the front door at any moment. Can you tell I hate to cry in front of any and everyone? Somethings are really hard to hold back. Nina Debrev deserves some kind of award for her heart breaking performance. Come here girl! We can make ugly cry faces together! This time I was watching all by myself when practically everyone dies, then mostly everyone comes back…MOSTLY everyone. Damon finally gets everything he could possibly want and turns out to be a decent human being…ur…um…vampire and what happens? He gets stuck on the other side! Dammit Damon! The bad guy is gone…for now, there will be another one next season, when the gang all heads to the other side to save Damon and Bonnie. Come on, we all know that’s what’s going to happen.

On a side note: I also watch Elementary, but it’s finale paled in comparison to The Vampire Diaries. Though I am looking forward to its next season as well.




Grimm – 

My reaction? Hexenbeasts are horrible, mean, ugly, vindictive, pieces of nastiness! That being said, I love Adalind. She is about as despicable as a villain could possibly be, all so she can get what she wants, her baby. Honestly though, what mother wouldn’t go to the ends of the earth to find their child. It’s a good thing Trouble (yeah I know, I’m probably spelling her names wrong, but there are probably dozens of grammar and punctuation errors in this post so whatever, I don’t care). Nick without his super Grimm powers is going to suck big time. They better fix him quick next season. I like Juliette, but if she is going to make Nick pick between being a Grimm and being with her, I gotta tell Nick to let her go. Monroe & Rosalee? YAY!!! So freakin’ happy! Poor Hank. This man needs a woman! Pronto! Sgt. Wu? This poor guy. Someone needs to tell him the truth. Oh and the captain better not die dammit! Love his and Adalind’s chemistry. Perfect for each other.

Honorable Mention:

Once Upon A Time – 

I’m still a season behind on this show, but I’ve seen the spoilers about a certain new princess from icicle land that will be on next season. Hoping ABC will show reruns this summer so I can catch up before the new season starts. Love this show.

There you have it! So, am I missing any good shows? Let me know in the comments below so I can catch up on them this summer! Thanks for tuning in. Catch ya later!
