Model Scouting

Image
While I have been scarce on blogging this week. I'm ready to share some exciting news. I am currently scouting models for covers as well as promotional material for future novels coming out late next year and 2018. So far one has been confirmed and the shoot will be in January 2017. I'm so exited. This is not for the novella series which has premade covers.



There are great things on the horizon. Enjoy your weekend guys.

TV Review: Pitch's Premiere Hits a Home Run

Image

Last night I watched the series premiere of Pitch, a new show on Fox. Through it all I was at the edge of my seat for the highs and lows and I even teared up. Yes we are just hitting the fall season (or in Jamaica, September) but man did it go off with a bang. The series follows a young pitcher who just also happens to be the first female to make Major League Baseball. She is also African American/Black which brings along both a myriad of praises and issues. Wonderful that a woman made the majors but is she able to contend with the other male players? As a woman and representation of a minority race in her country she has both the honor and pressure of many on her shoulders. Then there's the big question of the world vs self, fame vs living your own life and so on. This series covers all of this in spades and that's just in the first episode. I'm definitely ready for episode two. The only question is: Are you ready to (watch) Pitch?

Rating: 5 Stars (and t…

Happy Release Day: The Lying Planet and Coming in Hot

Image
Today I'm celebrating the release of two novels. One YA and the other Adult. The first I had pre-ordered weeks ago and the latter over the weekend. Both are out today so let's take a moment and congratulate these authors.

The Lying Planet



Summary:Promise City.That’s the colony I’ve been aiming for all my life on the planet Liberty. The only thing standing in my way? The Machine. On my eighteenth birthday, this mysterious, octopus-like device will scan my brain and Test my deeds. Good thing I’ve been focusing on being Jay Lawton, hard worker and rule follower, my whole life. Freedom is just beyond my fingertips.

Or so I thought. Two weeks before my Testing with the Machine, I’ve stumbled upon a new reality. The truth. In a single sleepless night, everything I thought I knew about the adults in our colony changes. And the only one who’s totally on my side is the clever, beautiful rebel, Peyton. Together we have to convince the others to sabotage their Testings before it’s too late…

Baby Moo is on the Loose

Image
Yes this week I'm just throwing authors at you left and right. Julie Flanders has long been a lover of animals and her first children's book proves just that. This month an adventurous cow has been let out to see the world and you can go on and journey as well. Also for every copy whether ebook or paperback that is sold in September, Sunrise Sanctuary gets a $1. So you'll also be donating to a lovely cause with your purchase. Also a big shout out to illustrator Teresa Venter.



Blurb: Baby Moo has a dream. He wants to travel the world and sing on the stage of the Sydney Opera House! While he loves his home at Sunrise Sanctuary, it hasn’t been the same since a piglet named Nathan showed up and stole all the attention away from Moo. Jealous of the new baby, Moo decides now is the time to make his escape and pursue his dream.

But the world outside the sanctuary gates is not quite the fun and exciting place Moo imagined, and he quickly finds himself in big trouble. Moo's fri…

Timeless Cover Reveal Palooza

Image
Please Note: I'm playing a little blogging hookie so no Wednesday post. See you Friday!

Yesterday there was the start of the cover reveal for Crystal Collier's upcoming novel Timeless. But as we know reveals never just last for one day. Sometimes days later, weeks, someone new decides to share the beauty of a book cover with others. Today is no different. Except I'm not just going to reveal the cover. I'm going to chat about the lovely lady behind it. But is she really lovely? Let's see.

Crystal Collier



At first glance you see an innocent pair of eyes peeking over that computer screen. But don't be fooled. Even on her blog she admits having an obsession with world domination and cheese. Who else has ab obsession with these things? Who else I ask? I think we all know.



You guessed right! Crystal is the real life Brain among us. And the scariest thing is. *whispers* She has no Pinky to distract her! We're doomed! Doomed!
But I'm a writer not the police so I gu…

Movie Love: Hell or High Water and Timeless Cover Reveal

Venue: Carib 5

Date seen: August 30, 2016

Time: 5:30 pm

What can I say about this movie? It was excellent. Yes that's the word I'm going to use. Oh my goodness I never expected to see a movie over the summer that would become my number one movie of the year. Yes I also enjoyed The Secret Life of Pets but this movie is perfection on so many levels. The actors were great, story spot on, and...just everything. This movie follows two brothers who are trying to save the family farm with little time to do it. They turn to crime but the way this is done no one is saying they are a one-hundred percent right or wrong for do doing it. This movie does not spent time preaching or telling you how to feel. As the audience you get to choose whether you are following the brothers or those out to catch them and put their asses behind bars. Either way you are in for quite a ride as both the performances and story will keep you riveted to the final stand off on the front porch…

IWSG: Health Stuff and Happiness

Image
This week I'm a bit out of it because of a doctor's visit last week with new medicine for my sinusitis that I might have to stop taking. All I'll say on that is I got some bad headaches and bad pain whenever I touched one side of my nostril that stopped after I didn't use the nasal spray for three days. Not a good sign and seems to be more an irritation of my nose than a sinusitis issue. I plan to visit my family doctor month end to have her look over the medicine. Before I had gone to see an ENT at a nearby medical complex (family doctor works much further away) but I don't know...one of the medicine's on the list that was supposed to be an anti-acid for potential side effects turned out to be a blood pressure medicine. My pressure is fine and even the ENT said I had no need for medicine in that arena...so...yeah that's weird. I really hope I never ended up going to a careless doctor or a medical kook. No disrespect to the medical profession. But when a d…

September Pre-Orders

Image
Hi guys. Tomorrow is IWSG but today I thought I'd share with you a few books I pre-ordered for September. Walk on Earth a Stranger and Empire of Storms have already started their shipping journey. Happily awaiting the other two to join them. It takes about two weeks or more for these books to reach me in Jamaica but the free shipping is how I get to buy all the books I get. Each of these September reads are books I can't wait to get my hands on. Take a gander and feel free to check your own bookstore whether store or online to find out more if any cover catches your eye. Thanks for stopping by. See you Wednesday.

I fist met Tara Tyler through blogging. From that day straight to now she has always been a positive person not only willing to share her ups and downs but also tips on being a better writer, mother and even person. Today however she is revealing the cover for the second book in the adventures of Gabe the Ogre. But he will not be the only one and Cradle Rock goes even further than the last. Someone is willing to *gasp* go looking for humans! Now take a gander at the beautiful spectacle that is the cover and of course the point of a 'cover reveal.'



Aint this a real beaut? Read on to find out more about this upcoming book. I'm going to stare at this piece of wonder just a little bit longer. :)
