Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society. 

 Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

Get a taste of Flight:

We walked through the French Quarter slowly, and I tried to take it all in. The music, the crowds, and the atmosphere still felt surreal. Music spilled out of the endless bars and clubs. 
“Wow, are those people seriously dressed up as vampires?” I asked, looking in at a dark bar on the corner. Inside I watched a man and woman holding up a chalice and smiling with fangs showing.
Levi laughed. “If you think those people are weird, you’d be freaked out by the real thing.”
“The real thing? Very funny.”
“What, you don’t think vampires are real?”
“No, and I’m glad they aren’t.”
“Why? Do they scare you?” Levi stopped walking, and turned me to look at him.
“Does the thought of blood sucking monsters scare me? Hell yes. Who wouldn’t be scared of that? ”
He laughed again even louder. “Trust me sweetheart, in New Orleans vampires are the least of your worries.”
“What do you mean?” Something about the glint in his eyes made me feel a little uneasy.
Levi’s face turned into a faint smile. “I’m really glad you asked that.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You’ll have to wait and see.”
“Okay, listen, scaring me isn’t a good way to get me interested, so if you have any weird tricks up your sleeve just shelve them.” I wondered if this was the time to tell him I avoided horror movies like the plague.
“No tricks, hon.” Levi pulled his phone out of his pocket and texted a few times.
 I continued my people watching. I’d never seen so many middle-aged people laughing and partying before. It almost felt like the twilight zone.
Levi slipped his phone back in his pocket. “We’re meeting everyone over at Club 360.”
“What’s that?”
“The lounge on the top of the World Trade Center down by the river.”
“Okay, is it a cool view?”
“Yeah, it’s got a good view.” Levi laughed again and I had the distinct impression he was hiding something from me.
“You promise you aren’t luring me into some trap?”
“A trap? No. Let’s just call it a new experience.”
My stomach dropped. What the heck did I get myself into?

Release Date Blitz: The Undesirable by S. Celi


Today is the release day of the new book The Undesirable by S. Celi!

Title: The Undesirable 
Author: Sara Celi
Publisher: Lowe Interactive Media
Where to Buy: Amazon
Pages: 225 
Book Description: 

 What if everything you knew turned out to be a lie? 
 Charlotte Walker knows how to live under the rule of The Party. She has managed for 18 years. She helps out her drunken mother and keeps life going at a familiar, steady pace. She doesn't ask questions, even though she has many of them in her heart. 
Fostino Sanchez knows how to live under the rule of The Party, too. For 19 years, he’s worked to be the perfect Party member. He knows what must be done to keep Maxwell Cooper in power, and how find the The Undesirables that threaten to take away everything that matters. As the months go by, what matters most to Fostino is Charlotte Walker. While their love blooms, danger comes to Charlotte and Fostino’s small hometown of Harrison Corners, OH. Threats they never knew existed could take away all that they care about. And just when these two teens think they know what will come next, Charlotte learns the truth about a secret she has long suspected. What Charlotte finds out changes everything. EVERYTHING. 
THE UNDESIRABLE is Charlotte Walker’s story, from her point of view. It is a thrilling, suspenseful tale of love, curiosity, adversity, and maturity against the backdrop of a futuristic war. Should Charlotte trust Fostino with what she knows? Can she trust anyone? Will she find it in herself to rise up against terrible odds? What if the ultimate Undesirable is her? (This book is Mature YA/ New Adult. It is recommended for readers 14 and over.) 



Fostino’s frown mixes with his tightened jaw. “Are you serious about this, Charlotte? Really serious? I just — I can’t believe you’re breaking up with me.” His eyebrows pull tighter than any seam I have ever sewn.“God. I’m so stupid.”  His mouth sets in a hard line. My heartbeat jumps to my ears. I bite down hard on the inside of my bottom lip.
Oh, God. Did I make the right choice? Will he understand? Will he always hate me?
My breath quickens as the air constricts all around the two of us. I almost taste the awkwardness in the air. I pray my pain doesn’t show on my face.
How do people manage to stay friends after something like this?
I can’t. No, I won’t. Not this time.
I stand in this apartment and know that I failed to make this breakup painless.My words cover this small dusty room. All the muscles in my back tighten and twist from the stress. We will never be just friends — ever.
He gets up from the couch and pulls on his worn, muddy combat boots. He seems wounded, broken, and defeated. He radiates pain. He picks up my keys to the apartment from the coffee table. Awkward. My mind flickers to the beginning. I remember the moment in the town square when The Party transformed our lives. I want to go back and change everything since then.
“I wanted to take care of you and shield you from—” He stops and gestures to the windows and the crumbling world outside this room. His soulful brown eyes glint with anger. “Everything.” Now he exhales. “I guess I’m not surprised. Not after all that happened.”His shoulders slump.
Sweat beads on the back of my neck. I swallow some of my uneasiness. My plan just might work. I taste the hollow victory in the back of my throat.
“I—I’m sorry.” I have nothing else to say, no words to make this better. In minutes, I’ll leave the apartment and flee my life because I have no other choice.
“I’ll never understand you. Or this.” Fostino shakes his head of dark waves. He fixates on the bare wall behind me.
His words hurt, but Fostino can’t know how much he affects me. I push away the urge to reach out and hold him tighter than I ever hugged anyone. Instead, I shudder a little in my shapeless black dress — the one the government issued me last month. I hate this. I am not a cold person. I don’t hurt people on purpose.
“Fostino, I—“
In a few steps, I reach his side. My shaky hand reaches out and the keys link our hands together.  I smell him through all the dust in this studio apartment with the Murphy bed in the corner. I inhale just remember how he smells. I’m so afraid I will forget it. Each second ticks by worse than the last. This conversation is hard, so very hard. I bite down on the inside of my cheek to stop myself from saying something I can’t back up. If only I could tell him the truth, share my terrible secret, and find a way out of my bleak future.
If only.
“Did you ever mean anything you said? I mean, even for one second. Did you ever even like me?” He balls his hand into a fist once I raise my arm to stop him. He keeps talking anyway. “I told you I loved you right here in this room, even though you didn’t say it back. I meant it.”
My stomach twists and heart pounds while I keep up the lies. “Well — I did like you.” I emphasize my next words as my toes curl in my sandals. “I thought I loved you once. I wanted to say it, but—”
“But, I’ll always love you. I will.”
He mutters something else I can’t understand, and his words undo me. I give in and kiss him. His lips are a gentle push against mine, and the kiss is so good it hurts. His lips taste like a nectar I want to savor forever. But I can’t. This moment must stay cold and Fostino needs to know this is goodbye for good. Before the kiss intensifies, I pull away and remember my task. The black Humvee full of people waits around the corner. We all must leave soon. They gave me fifteen minutes to make sure this break-up is a clean one. Time is up.
His eyes lock mine. “Why won’t you tell me what’s really going on?”
Oh no. He can’t know the truth.
Hurt him.
They told me I must end it.Loving me will destroy him. It will destroy everything.
My teeth bite my lip hard on the inside as I search for the words. “It’s — well — we just…we aren’t right for each other. I don’t want you to come after me. We need to end this. This relationship—”
“Whatever. It’s fine. You shouldn’t make stuff up.”Fostino sounds very weary and haggard with each sentence.
I take my keys and slide them into the black wool satchel on my left shoulder. Then I take the deception a step further. “I won’t ever love you, Fostino Ahmed.” The words taste like rusted metal. “I just won’t.”
My hands open the door with purpose. A few steps will take me through an ancient hallway that links this apartment with sixteen others. I push myself through the doorframe and pull the door shut behind me. Then I take the first steps of what I know will be a lifetime of solitary strides. With each step, I sever this connection.
Once outside, I round the corner and slide into the alleyway as the armored vehicle hums a signal. The Humvee’s fat tires set off its flat black paint, tinted windows, silver chrome handles, and a large armored grill on the front and the back. This car is a fortress, made for combat and intimidation. All the cars the government owns mirror this one. I slip inside and sink into black leather.
Soon, we will all leave Harrison Corners, Ohio. This small band of rebels will take me some place. And I don’t care where. I just want to disappear, and need to more than ever. After I close the Humvee door, Thompson speaks first.
“Did he believe you?” Thompson throws the vehicle into gear and drives it down the alley. He gets irritated when I don’t answer right away and runs a thick hand through his long dreadlocks. “Well?”

Review: Scarlette by Dovanna Juroe

Published date: October 12th, 2012

Publisher: BumbleB Media, Inc.

Pages: 326 (Kindle edition) 

Summary: (Goodreads)
Scarlette, an 18-year-old peasant, lives under a dark threat. A nightmarish creature lurks in the surrounding forest, killing the villagers one by one. When Scarlette's grandmother survives an attack, Scarlette learns that her grandmother hasn't suffered the bite of just any normal animal. 

 Now desperate, Scarlette searches throughout her province to find a cure. But there are those who want to keep their pasts hidden. As she begins to uncover the dark secrets of her village, Scarlette is befriended by a local nobleman and a woodcutter who share a gruesome history with the beast. To save her grandmother, Scarlette must unravel their mystery and solve an age-old crime. But as she pieces together the clues, Scarlette finds herself torn between the two men, both of whom want to be more than friends and hold the key to the cure.

 What if Little Red Riding Hood was Real? 

 Based on both the Grimm and Perrault versions of Little Red Riding Hood and set against the terrifying, historic Beast of GĂ©vaudan attacks, this dark YA retelling blends two epic legends, giving the fabled girl-in-the-red-cloak a new, shockingly real existence.


         Novels based in the fairy tale world that Little Red lives in have been a favorite of mine since I was a child. Growing up with movies like Hoodwinked, the tale always stayed in the comedic genre whenever I thought about it. There wasn't any of the blood, gore, and drama like Red Riding Hood was meant to have. Granted, I was only a child, but now that I am a young-adult I find these stories very entertaining as it appeals to the darker side of me.
 tt_zpsfd9d7bbc.gif           What made Scarlette stand out so much to me was the fact it was not only Grimm's version, but Perrault's also. I am not as familiar with Perrault's as I am Grimm's which made this novel find a louder voice in the crowd of Little Red books. My only prior experience to the more morbid side of the fairy tale is the movie starring Amanda Seyfried and the book it was based off of, titled Red Riding Hood.
           Scarlette started off very slow, stating what most of us already knew about Red Riding Hood as a character. The setting was the same as all the rest them. In my head, the village that Scarlette lives in looks exactly like Amanda Seyfried's movie. That wasn't a fact that could turn me away from this book though. Once I got a few more pages in, the mediocre sense that had surrounded this book fled. Soon this book took on a whole new aspect to the name Little Red and I couldn't even think straight after the events of this book unfolded. It was glorious, truly.
        I really enjoyed Scarlette as a character. She was different and fresh, strong and weak all at the same time. She made stupid decisions that I totally understood. Placing myself in her position, I would have lain down and died. Scarlette was stubborn and trusted only a few people, but again I couldn't blame her. To me, Little Red is one of the strongest fairy-tale characters out there, and with Scarlette that fact became even truer. 
       The romance side of Scarlette was absolutely amazing. There is indeed a love triangle but it is the best one I've read to date. This book made me thankful for the three sided figure. One man, rich and powerful, but gentle. The other, strong, annoying, and arrogant. For Scarlette, choosing was a lot easier than it seemed.
       The best thing about these stories is always finding out who the wolf is and Juroe pushed it off until the very end. Till literally the last few pages is when all hell breaks loose. Such a truly amazing plot and I loved how it unfolded. I wish there was going to be a follow-up novel, but I don't think there will be. I'd love to see the Little Red characters after the wolf’s fate had passed. If Juroe will write it, I'll read it

Bookmark Blitz Tour: Destiny Unveiled by Laura DeLuca

Published date: April 10th, 2012

Publisher: Free Focus Publishing 

Where to Buy: Amazon, Smashwords, + B&N


Gabriella and Darron thought their magickal battle was over when they defeated the evil warlock, Richard. When her Aunt Donna seeks Gabriella's help in rescuing her catatonic daughter from the Dark Coven, Gabriella discovers that her cousin holds a power within her that would be catastrophic in the hands of the evil witches. 

Gabriella's coven sets out on a journey that may be their last. Along the way, they meet new allies, face devastating treachery, and battle not only the Dark Coven, but the darkness within themselves. When Gabriella finally comes face to face with the cousin she never knew existed, her true destiny is unveiled, and the fate of the mortal world is in her hands.

Get a taste for Destiny Unveiled:

After collecting the offering from his followers, the leader returned to the center of the circle and the waiting initiate. With one quick motion, he sliced open his own palm. He held his hand over the cup, letting his blood drip slowly into the chalice, until the wound miraculously healed before Darron's startled eyes. When the chalice was full, he carried it to the eager initiate who took the cup firmly into his hands and tilted it towards his lips.
"As this blood makes you one with our flesh, so your soul follows to become one with the darkness," the English voice intoned.
As the initiate drained the last of the liquid in the chalice, his hood fell away, revealing a blonde ponytail pulled back over a pale white face, made even paler by the outline of bright red blood around his lips. Darron watched in stunned, horrified silence as his own face turned to meet his gaze. Eyes turned as black as coals stared back at Darron with a grim smile of satisfaction.
"Rise Darron," the leader commanded. And as he spoke, he lifted the hood from his head. Rise brother of the Dark Coven."

Blog Tour: Watcher by Audra Middleton (Interview + Giveaway)

Published date: January 7th, 2013

Genre: Fantasy/Romance

Where to Buy: Amazon, iBookstore


War threatens to destroy the world of Anthelion unless the holy man, Goran, can solve his prophecy riddle. For every clue he finds, another obstacle surfaces. An orphan girl, Watcher, becomes his responsibility. As if parenthood itself isn't daunting enough, she keeps a bear for a pet and transforms into her forest surroundings to avoid socialization. Hope momentarily emerges when Goran finds Benaiah, the Chosen Son of the prophecy. Only he soon discovers Benaiah is a social pariah on the verge of embracing darkness.

When Benaiah and Watcher unexpectedly meet, the two outsiders find in each other a sense of belonging they've never known. Now their emerging love promises to bring about the same war Goran is struggling to prevent.


If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world, which would it be? 

I used to want to live in Middle Earth, but after watching Peter Jackson’s movies I’ve decided people there don’t bathe enough to suit me.  So I think I’ll go with Hogwarts, but only if I could be a wizard.  It would kind of suck to be there as a Muggle.

When you were little, what did you want to be when you "grew up"? 

I wanted to write and direct my own movies. I was bossy and liked to make up stories, so it seemed like a good fit for me at the time.  I obviously never outgrew my love for stories, but I’m definitely not Hollywood material.

Can you see yourself in any of your characters? 

There are pieces of me in each of my characters; I think that’s what brings them to life on the page.  I wish I were more like Watcher, but I am probably most like the protagonists of the two humor pieces I’ve been working on lately.  One is a sarcastic art teacher with commitment issues, and the other is an anal-retentive accountant with a dry wit.  Basically I’m a worrier with a sense of humor.  I make it work.

What's one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors? 

To borrow from Green Day: don’t let your doubts be someone else’s point of view.  Be willing to make changes to your work, but only if it fits with your style and what you are trying to accomplish.

Who are your favorite authors of all time? 

I adore Capote; his metaphors are to die for.  Tolkien was a genius; The Hobbit is what sparked my love of fantasy.  I also like Stephen King; Needful Things and the Green Mile were stories that really stuck with me, long after I finished reading them. 

If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose? 

I’d love to meet Mother Theresa.  She had this brilliant way of putting things into perspective in addition to being one of the most selfless people of all time.  There would be a lot to be gained from a conversation with her.

Skittles or M&Ms? 

M&Ms.  I’m always in the mood for chocolate.

Favorite sport? 

I love baseball.  It’s a game of strategy and statistics, it has a rich history, and there’s always a chance to come back from behind and win, no matter the score.  Plus there’s the peanuts and Crackerjacks.

Action or Drama?

Action.  I don’t care if the stunts are so unrealistic it insults my intelligence, I’d much rather watch something blow up than watch someone cry.

About the Author:

Audra's love of writing began in the third grade, when she was chosen to go to a young
author’s conference based on a story, The Dragon Cookie, which she wrote about a giant
cookie that comes to life. She continued writing, and was sometimes asked to write
stories for friends as birthday gifts.

Audra went to college thinking she would go into journalism, but opted to go into
publishing instead, and even took an internship at Yale University Press. Audra married
right after college and was unable to find a publishing job where they were living in
Seattle. Audra took an office job. After helping put her husband through law school,
Audra went back to school and got her teaching degree. Audra enjoyed teaching, but
once her oldest was born, she chose to stay home. At the encouragement of friends Audra
started writing again, the result being her first novel, Watcher, releasing January 2013.

Audra and her husband with their three boys, now live in a small town in eastern Washington. They have a black Lab named Benji who eats shoes, gophers and packages left on her front porch (thanks Fed-Ex). When Audra is not chauffeuring and refereeing her children, she writes, dabbles in on-line shopping and plays Texas Hold ‘Em with her friends.

What do you guys think of Watcher? Audra seems like such a lovely person and I am so glad I got to interview her for the tour. I agree with having to be a wizard. It would suck just to be a Muggle.

Review: Glasses

About is the world's most popular online eyeglasses store. We have always been committed ourselves to offering customers the best quality products at the most affordable prices. For this reason, we have gained a solid reputation and trust from almost 500,000+ fans on Facebook. Also,we have been establishing collaboration with more than 10,000 bloggers all over the world till now.

Review: emailed me about a week or so ago and asked if I would like to try a pair of their glasses. At first I was a little skeptical. I didn't really know much about the company and had previously never heard about them before. I quickly checked their website and got a little too excited when I browsed all of their different amazingly chic glasses. I was in heaven, for I have a thing for glasses. They are my favorite accessory. I quickly replied to the email with a big, fat YES.

Once I got them in the mail a few days ago, I instantly fell in love with my new glasses. They are stronger plastic than what I thought they'd be. They feel well made and quite durable. They red is very rich and not as pink as it looked on the website. Check mine out here!

As you can see on my odd face above, that they are really big in size. They cover all of my eyebrows so--for the picture above-I decided to raise them to make my face look less un-proportionate. The lenses I got were only fashion because I am going to get the prescription filled elsewhere because I don't exactly know mine. It's also been a few years since I last went so in February I am definitely getting them checked!  

The only problem I have with these glasses is the fact that they are quite big on my head. I don't think I have a small head exactly, but it's smaller than most. They stay on the bridge of my nose but are very loose around the ears. I've tried tightening them with the included screwdriver, but they cannot go any tighter. 

I've already recommended to all my family and they are so eager to pick out a pair soon. You lovelies out there reading this can too! has this thing called First Pair Free. You get your first pair FREE. All you have to do is pay shipping! Go check them out here

I just want to thank once more! THANKS, you guys are so amazing! :)
