  1. Hello!
    I ran across your blog in the Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop and I was wondering if you would like to review my book for me! It is ETHEREAL INFLUENCE: THE BIRTH, the first in the ETHEREAL INFLUENCE series. It is available as an ebook on Amazon and Barnes&Noble.
    Synopsis: A person’s faith can waiver when life becomes difficult. It is during that time when God sends an angel to guide that person and exert ethereal influence over them.
    Laura’s faith is shaken when she learns of the death of her baby. An angel named Ben tells her some information and she believes that hope is not lost for her baby. Wanting to keep Laura’s faith waivering, a fallen angel named Ryan exerts influence on her that will keep her soul further from God. The angels struggle against one another to exert their influences on Laura’s mind and soul. The battle between good and evil will take place over her soul.
    The series is a collection of stories of angels and fallen angels influencing people and battling one another over souls. The stories lead up to the final book in which a war breaks out between Heaven and Hell.
    Thank you very much for your time!

  2. Hello
    I was hoping that you would be able to review my novel. Although it is listed as a Gothic horror, it is in fact a Paranormal Romance. This is a link to my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/JudgementOfSouls3TheKissAtDawn) so that you can take a look at the reviews, write ups and pictures of JUDGEMENT OF SOULS 3: The Kiss at Dawn. You can also email me at the address given below if you feel that this novel is one you’d like to have a pdf copy of for review.

  3. Hi, are you interested in reviewing chicklit? We’ve published three best-selling ebooks by Sue Margolis, we’d love you to have a look! http://apostrophebooks.com/writers/sue-margolis/

    The three ebooks are:

    APOCALIPSTICK: http://apostrophebooks.com/books/humour/apocalipstick/ When it comes to men, beauty columnist Rebecca Fine always seems to be on the scruffy end of the mascara wand. But all that changes the morning she meets Max Stoddart, her new colleague at the Daily Vanguard. With his upscale suit, Hugh Grant hair, and obscenely sexy good looks, he’s a single woman’s dream come true. Finally, her grandmother can stop surfing the Net for eligible Jewish males. But is Max the catch of the decade – or just a major babe magnet?
    Meanwhile, Rebecca’s old high school nemesis has resurfaced, a former blond bombshell called Lipstick who is now engaged to Rebecca’s widowed dad. And it’s good-bye to articles on toe cleavage when a hot tip sweeps Rebecca to the center of the Paris cosmetics world, where a miracle anti-wrinkle cream is about to be launched. That is, until she blows the whistle on a scandal that could set the beauty business – and the future of world peace – reeling. Will Rebecca win the recognition – not to mention the Pulitzer – she yearns for… and get the man of her dreams? Stay tuned.

    NEUROTICA: http://apostrophebooks.com/books/humour/neurotica/ Anna Shapiro’s husband has been a hypochondriac for longer than she cares to remember. Now Dan is even frightened to make love, in case the strain gives him a heart attack. Anna is determined to find some fun soon – not to mention some decent sex – in this new book by Sue Margolis.
    Then a sensational new book comes out, suggesting that women are just as capable as men of having affairs purely for sexual pleasure. Could sex be like going for a facial, except you get an orgasm instead of your blackheads squeezed? There’s only one way to find out.
    Anna – a 37-year-old mother of two in desperate need of a tummy tuck, breast lift and open pore surgery – is about to spend the next few weeks committing adultery for the pure joy of it – and with hilarious results. But there’s a catch. Anna still loves her husband. And by setting out on her lone quest, she’s putting her marriage at risk…
    Fast, funny, shocking and unputdownable, Neurotica is a novel for every woman who has ever wondered how high you can fly with an airline captain and just what male strippers keep in their posing pouches. But be warned: this book will have you shouting with laughter!

    SISTERIA: http://apostrophebooks.com/books/humour/sisteria/ It’s only after Finchley-dwelling Jewish housewife Beverley Littlestone has spent several minutes attempting “to work out which was further west, Liverpool or Bristol” that she realises she’s literally “been lying back and thinking of England” while husband Melvin “had been engaged in what he liked to think of as lovemaking”.
    Melvin’s business skills aren’t up to much either. And never have been. His latest bright idea to stave off bankruptcy involves selling “best-quality micro-fibre Korean toupées”. Mail order. Meanwhile as their 17-year-old daughter Natalie finds a cure for her Permanent Menstrual Tension in happy clappy Christianity, son Benny is trying to reclaim his foreskin using a couple of 32mm washers and some fishing weights. And then Beverley’s estranged sister–a thin, evil chat show presenter, given to reducing her colonic irrigator to tears and trying to book virgins who’d been groped by vicars for her Christmas special–asks Bev to have a baby for her.

    Best wishes,
    Louise

    Patricia Mann Releases Debut Novel Is This All There Is? on 1/3/13.

    What happens when a married professor is tempted to risk losing her
    family and career
    for a passionate fling with a former student?

    Los Angeles Times freelance writer Michelle Hoffman says, “Honest and
    moving, Mann’s work is a touching snapshot of middle-America today, a
    compelling story about one woman’s struggle to keep up appearances
    while coming undone.”

    San Diego, CA— December 21, 2012 — Patricia Mann is happy to announce
    the release of her debut novel from Mannequin Vanity Publishing, Is
    This All There Is? The book will be available in print and eBook on
    1/3/13 through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Is This All There Is? contains 206 pages of an everyday woman’s real
    life conflicts, rewards and temptations as she struggles to navigate
    her responsibilities and desires as a woman, a wife, a mother, and a
    professor.

    Beth Thomas has the perfect life. At thirty-five, she’s married to her
    college sweetheart, has two adorable kids, and teaches part time at
    the local university. But when a friend persuades Beth to go dancing
    on a rare night out, a chance meeting with twenty-one year old Dave,
    one of her former students, changes the course of her life. Loud
    music, too much to drink, and the thrill of feeling young again lead
    to an unforgettable kiss that was never supposed to happen. As she
    tries to put the memory behind her, Dave’s pursuit leaves Beth torn
    between what her mind says is right and what her heart and body crave.

    Here is another review:

    Patricia Mann’s first novel is an emotional tour de force. Meet Beth, Mann’s believable protagonist in “Is This All There Is?”. On the surface Beth is an average thirty-something suburban mom, overwhelmed with the task of “having it all” and guilty that everything simply isn’t enough. She truly does have it all — at least superficially. Great husband, two beautiful boys, a part-time gig as a university professor — literally, the white picket fence scenario. What right does she have to feel that something is missing?

    Thanks to Mann’s expert storytelling, the reader is immersed from page one in a realistic storm of Beth’s feelings as she maneuvers her way through the ennui of marital doldrums, motherhood, and guilt. When a risky solution to her boredom reveals itself through Dave, a former student, it threatens her marriage and her family. Erotically charged and emotionally real, “Is This All There Is” is not your simple chick lit love story. Instead it is a manifesto for the age, accurately capturing the complexity of the Gen Xers’ attempts at monogamy vs. the echoes of their parents’ bygone history as the free-love generation.

    “Is This All There Is?” will surely resonate with women (and maybe some men) who have found themselves in Beth’s circumstances, which according to research estimates is over half the population of modern young marrieds. Beth’s candor and honesty can be appreciated by everyone, even as she embarks on a course of deceit and betrayal. Indeed, her story-telling is compellingly truthful even while she lies to everyone she knows to cover up one bad decision after another.

  6. Hi, I am interested in a review for my book, but I couldn’t find any contact information to send the request. My book, The Wanderers, is a young adult paranormal romance and is the first in the series with the second one, Reborn, available for review as well. I will leave you a brief synopsis and contact info.

    What do you do when you learn your family is the one who’s holding all the secrets. Secrets that could get you killed…

    Ella is looking forward to starting college in the fall with her best friend Josie. She’s looking for a place where she can get away from her overbearing parents and two older annoying brothers. Unfortunately Ella realizes that sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
    Ella soon learns that the man who terrorizes her dreams is in fact real and coming after her.
    When one of her classmates is murdered, Ella slowly recognizes this is not some strange coincidence. Ella fears that the boy she’s falling in love with is the one who stalks her dreams and no longer knows who she can trust.
    When she finally learns the truth of her families deepest secret, Ella has to face her demons by taking out one of the people she thought she could trust…before they kill her.
