Book Blast The Silver Stand by L.J. Clarkson

silver strand

The Silver Strand Ever since twelve year old Isabelle Tresdon’s silver strand of hair sprouted, it’s been nothing but trouble: bleeding pink dust and sparking like a firecracker. Refusing to be known as the girl with the freaky, grandma hair, she wishes it never grew and the hair withers and tarnishes. The only problem is, the strand is Isabelle's source of magic, and she can transform particles of energy into matter. It's also her ticket into Mastermind Academy, a secret school inside the earth’s core. Five days remain before the strand drains her magic and life, forcing Isabelle to enter into a deal with two trickster Masterminds to save it. But what she doesn't count on is there is more at stake than just her life. The Silver Strand, a MG Fantasy Adventure for 9-12 year olds, is book 1 in the Mastermind Academy Series.

louisaAuthor L.J. Clarkson One thing you need to know about LJ Clarkson is that she tells BIG lies. She tells everyone that she gave up her career as an Environmental Engineer and Project Manager to write full time. But that's not entirely true. Ten percent of the time she sleeps in. Fifteen percent of her day, she spends surfing the internet, researching for new books and her business. Ok, fine. Two percent is for research. But she's only admitting it so she doesn't end up like Boldrick. For eighteen point seven five percent of her day, she runs her promotional and support site for authors, called Indicated ( The rest of her time involves writing, reading, watching movies and TV, walking her dogs and falling asleep whenever her boyfriend talks technical computer lingo. Truthfully, she hates early mornings, mondays, grammar (yuck! just ask her poor editor!), broccoli and cleaning. If you would like to drop her and line and let her know what you think of the book, she would love to hear from you. Just not before 8:30am in the morning.


“Did you know Isabelle has a silver, alien antenna?” Bimouth’s voice sang out over the shouts and chatter of the school bus, capturing everyone’s attention. “In science class, a magnet flew out of Mr. Higgins’ hand and stuck to her antenna. How freaky is that?”

 Isabelle’s back pressed against her seat.

 Bianca leapt up like a jack-in-a-box. Her voice came out as a hiss. “Shut your face horse mite or I’ll shut it for you.”

Looked like the bus ride might end in death.

Bigmouth turned to face Bianca. “What if Isabelle’s antenna, like, turns us into alien zombies?”

A chorus of whispers broke out. Catching the bus was a very bad idea. Isabelle prayed again for that black hole to open up and suck her in. Better yet, she wished it would gobble up the bigmouth. Isabelle tugged on Bianca’s arm and said in a low voice, “Just cut it off.”

Her friend’s eyes softened. “You sure, Boof?”

“The hair’s caused nothing but trouble since it sprouted.” The little voice inside Isabelle’s mind begged her not to, but she didn’t listen. “Ok.”

Something in Bianca’s school bag rattled as she riffled through it. She yanked a pair of scissors free. 

Isabelle’s gut clenched as her friend laid the strand between the blades. “Wait!” She suddenly felt unsure about whether to get rid of it. What if it were special and magical like Bianca had said? A magnetic hair, although cool, was hardly magical. Isabelle decided to test it. Closing her eyes, she willed her strand to turn Bigmouth into a toad.

 But Bigmouth’s voice still carried throughout the bus. “And in gym class, like, she bled this weird, pink dust.”

“Definitely an alien,” someone nearby agreed.

So much for Isabelle’s strand being magical. “Cut it,” she said, exchanging a sideways look with Bianca. Her friend squeezed the handles together.

Fuchsia-colored sparks shot out and scalded Isabelle’s right cheek. The strand sizzled and hissed like a firecracker, drawing the attention of Bigmouth. She shrieked like a real girl. “Look! Isabelle’s antenna’s on fire.”

Cover Reveal for Switched by Cassie Mae

Yay! Tis time for another cover from Cassie Mae. Boy is that girl prolific! I swear I just did a cover reveal for her the other day. Not saying that's a bad thing. Quite the opposite in fact!

Covers are the best part. Not gonna lie. So... time for the booty shake!

Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. She’s the author of the Amazon Bestseller REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND, and is the debut author for the Random House FLIRT line with her New Adult novels FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI and SWITCHED. She also has a three book deal with Swoon Romance Publishing, including her book HOW TO DATE A NERD. She spends time with her angel children and perfect husband who fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.


Cassie Mae redefines the New Adult genre with a novel that answers the eternal question: What do you do when you’re head-over-heels for your best friend’s guy?

Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart. But time is ticking and they must act now, before Talon gives Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.

Sure enough, the once-happy couple is fighting, Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “just a friend” ever should. But something just isn’t right. Then Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together, and discover a hitch they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.

And now... the reveal

*dramatic drumroll!*

I'm having a little bit of cover envy. Don't you just love that cover? I'm sure Cassie does! What do you think of it?

Interview with Jennifer M. Eaton, Author of PAPER WISHES

Today, we have an interview with the lovely Jennifer Eaton. We've been on a library panel before, and let me tell you, Jennifer knows her stuff!

Hello Nicole! Thanks so much for having me!

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

I’ve read a few books by Jocelyn Adams that have blown me away.  She has a crisp, fresh style that is really easy to read.  I hope that I can soak up a little of her talent by reading her books.

Linda Caroll Bradd is also someone I have my eye on.  She writes Romance at the moment, but I’m hoping she will branch out.  She has a knack for making the reader really care about her characters.

Great choices! What are your current projects?

I recently finished a Young Adult Urban Fantasy called FIRE IN THE WOODS.  It is an exciting high-paced chase novel that takes place in the woods of New Jersey.  I’m currently looking for a home for it.

I am also working on a New Adult Dystopian called OPTIMAL RED which is a prequel to my story LAST WINTER RED from the “Make Believe” anthology.  OPTIMAL RED also has a taste of a “chase” theme. I’m really enjoying getting deeper into the world that I created in the first book.

They sound great! What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Finding the time to do it.  I have a full time job, and I am also a full time wife and mom.  Finding that one hour or so a day is tough sometimes, but I make it a priority.  I just have to cut out other things, like television.

So true! Making time for writing is hard every day, but it's necessary. How long does it take you to write a book?

That depends on what you consider “writing a book.”  I can get a first draft done in a little over two months.  Now, that is not to say that I would let anyone READ that first draft.  At this point I have about two months of editing where I will insert setting and emotional response (which I usually miss the first time around.)  Then I send this draft out to 2-3 Beta readers.  They come back with their comments in about two weeks.  I then revise off their comments and send it out again to another 2-5 beta readers.  The total time ends up being about seven months of actual work on that title, and I take breaks to write shorts in between drafts, so in calendar time it’s about a year total. I could speed myself up if I wrote on weekends, but that’s my family time.

My rough drafts are very ROUGH. How did you come up with the title PAPER WISHES?

PAPER WISHES is about a family that writes their wishes on a piece of paper, and then folds them into origami stars.  After a few weeks, they open them and see if their wishes come true. PAPER WISHES seemed appropriate, not only for the obvious reason, but also because wishes, in general, are blank like a piece of paper.  It is the journey of making that wish come true that really makes the difference in one’s life.

Is there a message in PAPER WISHES you want readers to grasp?

There are a lot of messages in this book.  Far more than I ever really intended when I started writing. I’m always surprised when I get feedback on this story what people get out of it.  My original intent was the message that wishes always come true, just not always as you may have planned.  But there are also gentle themes of morality, family, regret, friendship, love, and so many other simple messages that people can really relate to.  All in all, I’m pretty proud of PAPER WISHES from that respect.


Jennifer M. Eaton is a contemporary blender of Science Fiction, Dystopian, and Romance.  Her work ranges from the sweet contemporary romances of Paper Wishes, to the dystopian society of Last Winter Red and Optimal Red, with a dusting of young adult paranormal just for fun in The First Day of the New Tomorrow.

While not off visiting other worlds, Jennifer calls the East Coast of the USA home, where she lives with her wonderfully supportive husband, three energetic boys, and a pepped up poodle. 

Full time team leader, full time mom, and full time novelist... what more can you ask for?  Writing help did you say?  Well, sure!  Jennifer hosts an informational blog aimed at helping all writers be the best they can be. Stop on by and chat. She loves to hear from fans!

Her contemporary sweet romance, Paper Wishes is currently available in ebook format.  The Dystopian novelette “Last Winter Red” is available as part of the “Make Believe” Anthology.   Each title is available from and and Smashwords.

Paper Wishes:  Jill has no idea what she wants for Christmas, but when it looks like her best friend Jack is going to get exactly what he asks for, Jill makes a Christmas wish that will change both of their lives forever.
Last Winter Red:  In search of a husband, Emily leaves the safety of the city and risks her life stepping into the outside world.  What she finds there will question the foundations of everything she believes in. Available as part of the Make Believe anthology.

The First Day of the New Tomorrow: Maya dreams of having everything she wants, but when she gets it, she can’t give it back fast enough. (Coming in September, 2013 from Muse It Up)

Ch-ch-changes YA Hop with Nicole Zoltack

Welcome to the Ch-ch-changes blog hop!

WOMAN OF HONOR, the first book in my Kingdom of Arnhem trilogy, deals with a lot of changes in the main character's life. Aislinn grows up from a young girl at seven, with a big dream of becoming a lady knight, to becoming a squire and falling in love, to even more. To say she goes through changes is an understatement!

Here's an excerpt for you to enjoy:

"Is there anyone else that you have feelings for, Aislinn? Is that why you don't want to be with Geoffrey?"

Aislinn blinked, thinking about his question. "I haven't thought about such things. I'm too focused on becoming a knight. That's all I'm worried about."

Caelan pushed back his chair and stood. With him on his feet, Aislinn had to tip back her chin to look him in the face, he had grown so much in the years since they'd first met. "There is no one else?"

She shook her head.

Caelan took a step closer to her, stepping so close he only had to whisper for her to hear him. "What if I told you that Geoffrey isn't the only one who favors your company?"

His closeness overwhelmed Aislinn and she tried to take a step back. Her shoulders bumped the bookshelf behind her and several books shifted, but none made enough noise to draw the attention of anyone else in the library. Caelan lay a hand against her cheek, his thumb beneath her chin, and with a gentle touched, forced her to look at him.

Her heart pounded hard in her chest like a caged bird and Aislinn caught her breath.

"Caelan," she whispered softly, but before she could say more, his lips covered hers.

Aislinn froze for a second as he held his mouth against hers, then heard herself sigh when he pressed closer and moved his lips. Aislinn's eyes fluttered closed and she raised her hands to lay them on his chest, feeling his heart pound as hard as her own. Then reality snapped at her and she shoved him away.

"Stop it!"

She pushed past the prince and rushed from the library, with several squires and younger pages turning at her escape. Aislinn ran to her room and slammed the door shut. She leaned against it and slid to the floor, her head in her hands.

How dare he kiss me!

But the worst realization was that she'd kissed him back. Even the memory now made her insides tremble and her hands shake.

I can't take part in a hop and not have a giveaway!

Cover Reveal: Revenge in Rio By Samantha Darling

Revenge in Rio
By: Samantha Darling
Beachwalk Press
Releasing October 21st, 2013


Calculated revenge, unexpected passion…

Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancée, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.

Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.

Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?

 Author Info
I live in Essex, not too far from London, with my very understanding husband, our identical twin boys, and two Bedlington Terriers. We're crammed into our rather cozy two-up two-down terrace and we can barely swing a cat, but hey, we love it. I work part-time as a nurse, but when I'm off duty, you will find me either chasing the toddlers around like a headless chicken, head buried in a book, or tapping away at my stories.

I have always loved to read and romance is by far my favourite genre! You can easily escape into such promising worlds, where sexy Alpha males lead the way and strong heroine's often can't help but fall head over heels in love. I adore a Happy Ever After - as I'm sure we all do if we're honest, right?!

Reading and writing go hand in hand and from the day I could read, I enjoyed writing. To put pen to paper and conjure up weird and wonderful little stories was what I thrived on! English was my favourite class at school right throughout to secondary - and I will always be thankful for the teachers who gave me the opportunities to develop and be creative! If I remember rightly, one of my first stories was called 'The Turkey Who Could Talk'...but I'll tell you more about that some other day :-)

Interview with the Fun Cassie Mae!

Hi, lovely blog readers! Today I have a fun interview with the amazing Cassie Mae. Enjoy!

Tell us your latest news, Cassie.

Hmm… I think everybody knows my news, haha! But the last email I got just said my edits for SWITCHED (coming December 2013) are done! Wahoo!

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

2011, when I finished my first book.

And we're all so grateful you took up writing. :) What inspired you to write Friday Night Alibi?

I fell asleep in the shower and woke up to freezing cold water. Instead of jumping out like a normal person, I stayed in and acted out a scene, then got out and wrote it, lol.

Haha, love it! Do you have a specific writing style?

Yes. I write as if the character is talking to the reader. Like in Saved by the Bell when Zach pauses the scene and talks to the camera, lol.

That's awesome. How did you come up with the title?

Friday Night Alibi was who the character was. I had that title when the idea for the book plopped in my head.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

That love is fun, it’s immature sometimes, and when you open yourself up to it, it can be freaking awesome.

What books have most influenced your life most?

Harry Potter, Twilight, Lord of the Rings, Fablehaven, anything by Jolene Perry, Match Made in High School… I really could go on and on, lol.

Great choices. Speaking of choices, iIf you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Jolene Perry. She rocks, and she hasn’t told me to stop fangirling and to leave her alone yet.

What book are you reading now?

Click To Subscribe by LM Augustine. And it’s amazing.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

LM Augustine, lol. Leigh T. Moore, Theresa Paolo (but I’m biased because she’s my critique partner.)

What are your current projects?

I’m working on two books right now, one NA and one YA. The YA is book 3 in my HOW TO Series through Swoon Romance, and the NA I’m hoping to knock Random Houses socks off with, haha! Do you want titles? How to Snag a Sugar Daddy and The Real Thing. We’ll see if they stick ;)

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

Sure… lemme pull something out here…

“Make love to me.”
If requests could cause heart attacks, I’m pretty sure mine just did. Eric blinks and grips the side of the grocery cart, putting most of his weight on it. Goodness, I hope he doesn’t pass out.
He clears his throat, eyes never leaving mine. “Right here? I mean, I’m all for making statements and such, but I don’t think I want my first time in the diaper aisle at Target.”

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Everything. Sometimes it’s the dialogue, sometimes it’s the plot, sometimes it’s my characters. All depends on the book and the story. But I like challenging, because it makes me better.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I can’t pick a favorite! LOL. I do love Miranda Kenneally though, because she’s not afraid to write different from the trends. She writes true to her characters no matter what.

It is so hard to pick a favorite. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI was hard because I was pregnant, my mind was gone, and I was face in a toilet for half of it, lol. But it turned out to be one of my most favorite ones I’ve written.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I LOVE YOU! *huggles*

:D How long does it take you to write a book?

It used to only take me a couple weeks. Now it takes me a couple months. I think it’s ‘cause I can’t shut off my editor brain now. Kind of like driving. There are so many things to think about and concentrate on, it takes a little bit longer. But it also saves me time in the editing room.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

I write whenever I can. Right now I’m in my pajamas while my kids scream at each other over who gets the last cookie. Being a stay-at-home mom, they make my schedule, not me :)

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I probably have an awkward boner scene in almost every book. Must be my signature, haha!

What paranormal creature would you be and why?

A vampire, because I am pasty white.

I'm so white too! Although, in recent years, I have been getting a little color. What would you do if you didn’t have to work?

Play video games, write, eat licorice, and chug mountain dew.

Wait… I already do those things :)

Hahaha. What did you want to be when you were 10 years old?

A teacher. Yeah, two years of tutoring made me change my mind.

I could never be a teacher. What makes you laugh?

I have a 12 year old boy sense of humor. So any words or actions that would cause them to laugh, it’s safe to say I’d laugh as well.

Hey, laughing is healthy, right? If aliens landed in front of you and, in exchange for anything you desire, offered you any position on their planet, what would you want?

Anything that gets me free food.

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?

Luna Lovegood. She rocks.

Yeah she does! If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Who played Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect? *hurries and Googles* Rebel Wilson. Definitely her. She’s hilarious and I’d get a cool Aussie accent.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

To control life like a remote control. Pause, rewind, replay, fast forward… yes, I want that. And yes I saw Click, I know what I’m in for.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?

That One Girl Who Didn’t Know How To Shut Her Mouth

LOL You crack me up. If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time?

Visit all my online friends, take my hubby and kids to wherever they want to go, and live in Harry Potter world in Orlando.

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be, and why?

Hugh Jackman, because he can sing, he played Wolverine, and he’s sexy. (super deep answer, huh? LOL)

Nice. I'm sure you aren't alone in your choice there! If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?

A puppy, because I can’t sit still, I’m happy, and I sometimes drool when I smell McDonalds fries.

If you won $20 million in the lottery, what would you do with the money?

Buy a house, pay bills, be totally boring, lol!

If you were a Star Wars character, which one would you be?

Obi Wan. No reason, I just really like him.

What kind of people do you dislike?

Hmm… people who are opinionated, and say things to make others uncomfortable. I wouldn’t say I dislike them, because I find it hard to dislike anyone, but it rubs my nerves raw.

What makes you angry?

When my shows don’t record, when my internet flickers, and when my characters won’t talk to me when I’m on a deadline! ;)

Purchase Link for Friday Night Alibi (because you know you want a copy!)

In the wealthy town of Sundale, Kelli Pinkins has hatched the perfect plan to capitalize on her sweet reputation. For a generous fee, she will be every trust-fund baby’s dream: a Friday-night alibi, the “girlfriend” or “BFF” that parents dream about. With college approaching in the fall, Kelli’s services are in demand more than ever, which means that her social life is nonexistent. But Kelli is A-okay with that. She’s raking in cash for school. Besides, relationships are tricky, and sometimes very messy. She’d rather be at home on Xbox LIVE, anyway. Then the unexpected happens: She meets college stud Chase Maroney.
Chase isn’t like the preppy, privileged guys Kelli usually meets in Sundale. For starters, he’s twentysomething, always wears black, and he shoots back one-liners as fast as she can dish them out. But Kelli’s attempts to drive Chase away falter when she realizes that he treats her like he really knows her, like he cares about knowing her. When Kelli finally gives in to the delicious kiss she’s been fighting for so long, she faces a tough decision: make Chase a real-life boyfriend and risk her heart . . . or keep her clients and lose her first true love.
