Amelia Lamont never asked to unleash her inner vampire

Amelia’s normal teen world is shattered when a terrifying nightmare awakens the monster inside her. A newfound, insatiable thirst for blood that leads her to drain the school quarterback is only the beginning; she’s horrified to discover that her family and best friend Kendrick have been harboring the secret all along. And is the strangely alluring boy who seems hell-bent on curbing her murderous, blood-filled desires a friend, or foe?

To escape detection Amelia and her twin brother Dorian are forced to move to a new town, and the challenge of a new, exclusive high school where nearly every classmate smells like prey. Including the irresistible Ty, who seems hauntingly familiar, yet darkly menacing …

Amelia’s disturbing dreams and entanglement in a web of forbidden romance render her increasingly powerless against the chilling lies and secrets of vampire power struggles. And, as she soon discovers, vampire politics mixed with outlawed love can be a lethal cocktail.

Falling in love may just cost Amelia everything: her friends, her family…even her life

The Curtain – A Novel by Patrick Ord and Dave King

THE CURTAIN – A NOVEL SYNOPSIS:Have you met Henry Maddox? He knows you — not personally of course… he really only knows your data. But from that data he actually may know you better than you think you know yourself. Henry knows where you’ve been and what you’ve bought. He knows all of your friends. Henry not only knows your behaviors, he understands your tendencies. And from those tendencies, he can predict what you’re going to do before you’ve actually done it. Who is Henry Maddox? He is a 21st century marketing consultant and he specializes in highly personal and irresistibly persuasive advertising. Henry’s strategies combine modern data mining (Big Data) techniques with other advanced and controversial marketing practices (Market Fragmentation, Cross Promotion, and Conglomerate Propagandizing) to the point where consumers don’t even know their being sold. Businesses love Henry because he not only moves product, he actually controls their customers. But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends.THE CURTAIN explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques have on communities, families, and individuals. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has allowed past civilizations to prosper? When corporations have the influence and motive to define people by what they consume, are we as individuals losing the substance of who we really are?THE CURTAIN is entertaining, fun, thought provoking, educational, and frightening. Ord’s storytelling is brilliant and his research extraordinary. THE CURTAIN is a must read for anyone that watches television or movies, listens to the radio, accesses the internet, logs into social media, has a smart phone, participates in loyalty card programs, or uses GPS technology. In short, THE CURTAIN is for everyone.

Made By Design: A Vampire Paranormal Romance (Blood Bound Series Book 2) by J.L. Myers

Hunted and anything but normal…even for a vampire.
Amelia Lamont’s return to normal vampire life is threatened with a horrific vision, while new dynamics about her link to The Sight drive her to keep her growing and intrusive power a secret. And then there’s Ty—her sexy werewolf boyfriend—but can he truly accept Amelia’s connection and deepening bond with Kendrick?

Although she’s escaped with her life for now, Amelia knows Caius is watching and waiting, preparing for the right moment to take back possession of his experiment—her. As she searches for the truth behind her creation, the fabric of the past is torn away, leaving her questioning whom she can truly trust…the deeper she digs, the darker her past becomes.

Amelia’s outlawed romance with her race’s mortal enemy will be put to the ultimate test when her increasingly debilitating dreams turn catastrophic. For in the end, the truth always finds a way to come out, and vampire law is as unforgiving as it is fatal.

Will Amelia’s forbidden love for Ty save them…or guarantee their death?

The Treemakers: Book one in the YA Dystopian Scifi Epic (The Treemakers Trilogy – 1) by Christina L. Rozelle

Sixteen-year-old Joy Montgomery, daughter of Zephyr the Magnificent, the great magician, can only reminisce of better times. Before the Superiors. Before the uprisings. Long ago. Before the dying Earth ripped the family she loved away from her. She can only dream of the adventure life must’ve been before their ancestors brought the apocalyptic devastation in the form of disastrous climate change.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for the post-apocalyptic survivors in Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

“Loved this book so much, from the very outset I knew this was a book for me that would immediately be all encompassing. For the few days that I was reading it I was totally invested in this dark world of terror and fear and it was all I could think about, for a long while I thought about the long suffering and selflessness of the main character Momma Joy, and how she pushed herself forward at every challenge. This dystopian setting had echoes of the misery of Orwell’s ‘1984’, it had the pace of action films such as ‘The Fifth Element’ or ‘Twelve Monkeys’, and I felt there was a little homage to ‘A town like Alice’… The Treemakers has the punch, detail, and depth of all of those combined. The realism was sublime, moments of realisation relating to Joy’s past really hit deep, made me smile, truly resonated within me, the darker moments too are just as hard-hitting, and make this book a dizzying rollercoaster of emotions.

I cannot recommend this book high enough, it is an energetic, carefully written adventure into a world that could be, a place that wouldn’t be out of step in our nightmares, and full of characters that you are willing them on to succeed with every page. An absolute triumph of a book, utterly entertaining, I wish there were more of them… and I get the feeling there will be in the future. Absolute brilliant read.”

“The Treemakers” is an impressive debut from Christina L. Rozelle. Set in a dystopian future and after a cataclysmic event, the story is centered on the symbolically named, Joy, who lives in a world that is anything but.

Joy is a central figure in the work force of “Bygonne”, which primarily consists of children. Working for a shadowy group, the children are slaves, charged with producing metallic trees in order to sustain oxygen for their world. In Bygonne, people figuratively and literally, struggle to breathe.

The children are, however, as much a commodity as the materials they produce. Devoid of caring adults, Joy becomes the mother figure, trying to sustain some humanity in a world that relinquished it some time ago. Spinning hope, love and magic through her stories, Joy attempts to make sense of a world full of dangerous secrets.

In Bygonne, however, hope, love, and magic can get you killed. So, too, can emancipation. Told from Joy’s first person narration, “The Treemakers” is part environmental-warning and bio-punk. I’d recommend this work for readers of Young Adult and dystopian narratives.

This was a compelling read and at times, I longed for more information and backstory, but I am sure all secrets will be revealed in good time. Roll on the sequel!”

Loving an Alien: How does it feel to fall for a foreigner? by Angela Nicoara and Mike Ormsby

Think you’re all packed, for the love train? Think again.
Here’s a book you might want to take along for the ride….

‘Loving an Alien’: Intimate tales of true romance from brave women who crossed the cultural divide and loved to tell the tale.

Vive la différence!

In 1995, when young Romanian journalist Angela Nicoara applied to the BBC School in Bucharest, it changed her life in ways she could never have imagined. Raised in the closed society of communist Romania and stung by a recent divorce, she doubted her chances for a better future. But then she met some British guy, in a gloomy corridor, and everything changed.

“There was a power cut at BBC School. It was so dark I could hardly see him. We chatted for a few minutes, sharing a joke about the excellent conditions, and I had a feeling I’d never experienced before; it was as if, I’d known him all my life. Why?”

Turns out, Cupid had just fired a couple of arrows that landed bang on target. Angela and her Brit spent the next twenty years travelling and working around the world – with a brief stop in Las Vegas to get married – and are now settled in a tiny village in the mountains of Transylvania, with bears for neighbours.

And that’s where Angela got the idea for ‘Loving an Alien’…

“One winter’s night, by our log fire, I started thinking about my girlfriends around the world, many of whom had married a foreigner. Their lives were so similar, and yet so different to my own. Hmm, why not share our experiences? What if I go back to how it all started for me? Put my journalist hat on and interview them? Ask about life on Planet Love – what might they say?”

If you’re into global travel, romance, life lessons, the do’s and don’ts of an intimate relationship, how to manage your in-laws, how to finesse your outlaws, how to raise rootless, bi-lingual, ’third culture’ kids, then snuggle up with ’Loving an Alien’.

In a remarkably candid series of Q&A’s with twenty-six women of different nationalities, Angela reveals what makes a mixed marriage tick … and how to keep the love clock running.

“My college friends thought I was stupid, crazy, and throwing
away a bright future.” Jennifer

“Some girls think marrying an expat is the road to riches, but
that’s not true.” Sumi

“I never thought I’d be with an African, someone so different,
from this tiny village.” Sophie

“It wasn’t like I came to Sri Lanka to marry a Sri Lankan.
It just happened.” Jessica

“Marrying into a different culture means you are not trapped by your own, which is how I felt.” Wang

Angela Nicoara doesn’t just spill the beans, she gets the recipe.

It’s not memoir. It’s not fiction. It’s love. Long-distance. Long term. Visas and all. Join Angela on her journey to the heart of it.
