#BookTour “Sweet Dreams (Dreams Come True)” by Stacey Keith


coverTitle: Sweet Dreams

Author: Stacey Keith

Genre: Romance

In a little town in the heart of Texas, the same old story can turn into happily ever after . . .

On any given day, Maggie Roby has cake batter on her sleeve, flour where the blush supposedly goes, and sore feet from standing since dawn. For her sister’s wedding day, she’s added a side of heartache. Maggie’s failed marriage taught her that love is a lie and commitment a mistake, and it was an expensive lesson. But with her bakery thriving and her life simplified to work, family, and knitting for her pug, Maggie thinks she’s bought some peace. Until Jake Sutton walks in and she realizes she isn’t safe from desire at all . . .

Jake has model-perfect looks and about a billion dollars to throw around, but Maggie also sees the same never-say-die grit she prizes in herself. The attraction between them is hotter than her oven in July. But when Jake decides to restore the old Art Deco movie theater right around the corner from her bakery, she worries that temptation is a little too close for comfort. And the added ingredient of a man from her past only complicates the mix. This time nothing less than true love will do. If she can learn to listen to her heart, she just may be able to have her cake and eat it too.



Author Bio Stacey Keith

Award-winning author Stacey Keith doesn’t own a television, but reads compulsively—and would, in fact, go stark raving bonkers without books, most of which are crammed into every corner of the house. She lives with her jazz musician boyfriend in Civita Castellana, a medieval village in Italy that sits atop a cliff, and she spends her days writing in a nearby abandoned 12th century church. But the two things she is most proud of are her ability to cook pasta alla matriciana without burning down the kitchen and swearing volubly in Italian with all the appropriate hand gestures.

Women Writers… writing | Patricia Dixon

Patricia DixonI am a wife, mother of two and grandma to one. I live in Manchester, UK.
Currently, I have four books available to download on Amazon.

I took the inspiration for my first novel from all the people, places and experiences which have graced my life over the past forty (something) years. In 2004 we were lucky enough to buy our own piece of France and have spent the years since renovating a ramshackle farmhouse in the Loire. During this time I have met some wonderful people and made lovely French and English friends, some of whom find themselves with a starring role in my stories.

As with all families, mine has had it’s fair share of incidents, traumas and achievements, including the odd nutty relative ( everybody has one) so I drew on life’s rich tapestry and some of these special moments I have shared with you.

However, none of this would have been at all possible without the unstinting support of my lovely family and friends.

When I first pitched my idea of writing a novel to my husband, Brian, I was given the thumbs up and I am buoyed by his total belief in me. He is followed closely by my mum whose faith has never ever wavered and believes I am capable of anything. Literally! Never forgetting our two children who encouraged and cajoled me from the start.
And to our grandson, Harry, who stands by my side and is always so impressed by my word count. I promise that one day I will write a special story, just for you.

And finally I must thank my son Owen who is responsible for all matters technical and without whose patience and enthusiasm I would never have been able to press the publish button.

Over My ShoulderOver My Shoulder

by Patricia Dixon

Genre: Contemporary Women/Women’s Fiction/Religious & Inspirational Fiction

This is a dark and gripping romance which tells of a nice young girl who met a very bad man. Sounds simple? Not really. By the time the girl realised the depths of his wicked soul and a wiser, braver young woman was about to emerge, it was too late. His twisted roots had wrapped around her life, spreading rapidly, taking a firm hold of her confused head and fragile heart. There was to be no escape from the tangled mess unless it was on his terms and even then, once she was free and her life rolled precariously on, the seeds he had sown remained embedded deep within. When she least expected it he would return and make good his promise, exact revenge and ensure she paid any price he felt owed.

Set in Manchester in the early nineties, Over My Shoulder is an intricate tale of blinkered love and obsession. This gripping psycho-sexual thriller with criminal undertones tracks the life of a young woman, from her carefree mid-twenties right up to present day.
Freya falls under the spell of controlling and manipulative Kane and soon, her life changes beyond her wildest imagination. When the luxurious life she craves gradually becomes intolerable, escape is out of reach.

This is a disturbing story of an affluent life, cleverly camouflaging the sinister underworld which funds it. And just when you think it is all over, there is a twist.
When will it end, can it end?

Army of Authors Blog Tour | Brian Harrison

schematicThe Vault

Why would a multi-billionaire create a customized vault that is controlled by watch mechanics inside and have a self-destruct mechanism inside to destroy the billion dollars worth of artifacts inside?

Simple, because he can.

On paper, Sam Montgomery is your typical eccentric philanthropic pharmaceutical billionaire whom has literally mailed five dollars to everyone in the US so they can “pay it forward.” But what people didn’t know when made a rare public appearance was that he was announcing he had leukemia. And more shocking was that when he said, “I’d rather die than give my sister the opportunity to save my life,” no one even knew he had a sister.

Elena Diamante nailed the sit down interview – at his small home on the tiny island of Antikythera in Greece. She was only planning on getting the scoop about Sam and his apparently estranged sister but she was also going to be the first journalist to see inside Sam’s custom made vault. It was built using watch mechanics, so it was completely self-sustained, and only opened once a year. It was even rumored that if it were ever tampered with, everything inside would be destroyed in a custom acid.

Come to find out for Elena, there would be one item inside Sam’s vault that could save his life, or end itcover even quicker, it was just a matter of whether or not the vault would open in time.

The Vault explores Sam’s family dynamics and how they inspired him to become the successful man he is. The story is also told using Sam’s own family photos growing up, as well as text messages and Facebook/Twitter. There are even hyperlinks within the novel as “Easter Eggs” for those readers that want to explore even more of Sam’s personal life, further blurring the lines of fact/fiction.

PreOrder from Amazon. Releases March 6th!
