CHALLENGING DESTINY Publisher: The Wild Rose Press Kindle Release Date: March 27, 2014 Worldwide Release Date: July 11, 2014

Logan Ragsdale and his younger sister, Ariana, have been marked, chosen to be unwilling participants in a war between angels and demons.
Logan can sense something's not quite right. Like an unexpected chill on a summer's day, he can feel the unseen closing in. He's had these feelings before and, each time, someone close to him died. He's afraid this time it might just be Ariana.
Logan's fears are soon confirmed when he discovers their new friends aren't human, but rather representatives from Heaven and Hell sent to Earth to ensure he and Ariana accept their roles in an ancient prophecy.

Cover Reveal: Shades of Atlantis and Shades of Avalon by @CarolOates

Today I'm so excited for my pub sister Carol Oates who's revealing not one but TWO covers for her young adult series!
I loved Shades of Atlantis (Shades #1)--see my review HERE and check out the gorgeous new cover:

Shades of Atlantis synopsis
Since the death of their parents, Triona Pryor and her brother, Ben, have lived with their aunt and uncle in Camden, Maine. Now in her senior year of high school, Triona loves her family and friends, but she has always felt that she didn't quite fit Camden, or anywhere else.

Enter Caleb Wallace, the devilishly handsome man who has recently moved to Triona's small town.

While their attraction to each other is instantaneous, it also proves to be dangerous...and deadly. When tragedy strikes, Triona flees to London for solace and to start her life anew. It's there she discovers from an unlikely source that her family has been keeping secrets from her - secrets about not only her birthright, but her ultimate destiny as well.


Mental Health Giveaway Hop

Thanks to I Am A Reader and Reading in Twilight for hosting the Mental Health Giveaway Hop.

As a psychologist / author (or psycho author), I LOVE the idea of a hop combining two of my favorite things: mental health and books!

I like to write therapy scenes in all of my books, and often feature characters who are psychologists or characters who have mental health disorders (or psychologists WITH mental health disorders). ;-)

What are your favorite stories featuring mental health issues? Here are mine, with links to my reviews:

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

Spin by Catherine McKenzie

I'm giving away two mentally healthy Jennifer Lane ebooks: With Good Behavior (The Conduct Series #1; romantic suspense only $.99) and Streamline (New Adult swimming military romance). To enter, complete the Rafflecopter.

Cover Reveal: Son of Set by Kelsey Ketch

Son of Set (Descendants of Isis #2) by Kelsey Ketch Release Date: 05/02/14
Summary from Goodreads:

“. . . the Sons would never just let him go—alive.”

Seth O’Keefe has broken the laws of his god. He never thought he would sacrifice his own future to protect a Daughter of Isis. But when the Sons of Set discovered Natti is the Secret Keeper, he had no choice. Now, Seth and Natti are on the run from his father, who wants nothing more than to see Seth dead. With no allies, Seth turns to the Daughters of Isis for help, hoping they would protect Natti. But when they meet the Daughters, he discovers a secret that puts both their lives in more danger. Low on options, Seth sees only one possibility for survival. He must help Natti solve an ancient puzzle and find the secret name of Ra.

Natara “Natti” Stone is having a hard time swallowing the truth. She can’t believe what she has learned in the past twenty-four hours: Seth is a Son of Set blessed with charm; she is a Daughter of Isis blessed with…

Grown-Ass Men, Feelings, and #IWSG

Happy Insecure Writers Support Group, hosted by author Alex J Cavanaugh!

"The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine-addled, crippled by procrastination, consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing, and soul-crushing inadequacy. And that’s on a good day.”
~Robert DeNiro at The Oscars
I think that's the new IWSG rally cry, ha ha. How's your writing coming along? I'm plodding through my WIP Blocked, though I just sent the hero and heroine to therapy so it should be smooth sailing now!

My awesome critique partner Nicki Elson has been oh so helpful, and she's also hosting a fun blog tour next week: The Grown-Ass Man Tour. Are you a fan of a grown-ass man?

We'll give away a $50 Kindle gift card and post about the adult men we love to write. YA and NA boys are nice, but this tour is about MEN. Grown-ass men. My post will be "Grown-Ass Men Have Feelings Too", celebrating beta hero Grant Madsen from The Conduct Series.
