waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon

How To Date A Nerd Blog Hop, But before that....

Click here for my Follow Fest Post

...I have to do a tiny rant.



In July Turbo came to theaters then left before month end. Was pissed I missed it. But that happens.



Sunday (September 22) afternoon I read the paper and realize Turbo came back during the weekend only 2:30 pm slot. How did I not know this! And with Cloudy...2 coming it won't be around another weekend. So I missed a second chance to see Turbo and I am super pissed.



Those snails were awesome even if this movie made just about the least money of any Dreamworks animated movie. So yeah I'm way pissed off.

Thanks for listening. Now unto the hop.


How To Date A Nerd Bloghop is hosted by the dear writer and blogging comedy extraordinaire Cassie Mae. Also her latest novel How To Date A Nerd is out and I couldn't be happier for her. Today we reveal what is the nerdiest thing about us in hopes of fun, zero embarrassment (HA!) and some neat swag.

BOOK 1 Lash by L.G. Castillo
Series: Broken Angel #1
Publication date: May 6th, 2013
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:
Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn’t have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash’s powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies.

Determined to avoid anything that would risk his chances of returning to Heaven, Lash struggles with the greatest obstacle of all—his growing feelings for Naomi. But when her life is threatened by an unknown source, Lash questions the wisdom of the Archangels and his ability to keep her safe.

Purchase: Amazon HardcoverAmazon KindleBarnes and Noble



Summary: What happens when you can't do the one thing that matters most? Twelve-year-old Hope Toriella lives in White Rock, a town of inventors struggling to recover from the green bombs of World War III. But Hope is terrible at inventing and would much rather sneak off to cliff dive into the Bomb's Breath—the deadly band of compressed air that covers the crater left by the bombs—than fail at yet another invention. When bandits discover that White Rock has priceless antibiotics, they invade. With a two-day deadline to finish making this year's batch and no ingredients to make more, the town is left to choose whether to hand over the medicine and die from the disease that's run rampant since the bombs, or die fighting the bandits now. Help lies in a neighboring town, but the bandits count everyone fourteen and older each hour. H…

Contingency and Relativity Book Blitz and The Summer I Found You Cover Reveal

Today I'm participating in the Contingency and Relativity Book Blitz as an Xpresso Tours Host.


BOOK 1 Contingency by Peggy Martinez
(Sage Hannigan Time Warper #1)
Publication date: December 2012
Genres: New Adult, Time-Travel
Synopsis: Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be?

All she has to do is:

1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.

Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper. She also never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. …
