Cover

On a grey, London day, Esme’s world crumbles around her when she loses her glitzy job on a top TV programme, her gorgeous, city-slicker boyfriend and her stunning apartment, all in one fell swoop just before Christmas.

Esme is forced suddenly to move back to her sleepy hometown of Sandchester, and despite the snow blanketing the roof and the fairy lights that twinkle in her rustic little cottage, everything is looking bleak. That is until she reconnects with an old crush and finds herself unexpectedly getting swept away.

But Joe, handsome and charming as he is, is not all he seems. Esme soon realises that he has a tragic past which he just might not be able to overcome…

Surrounded by her loving, if harebrained, family and with the support of her hilarious friends, Esme is determined to have a go at forging her own path, even if it all comes to nothing. But one question still lingers in her mind: will she find someone to kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?

MOORE FAMILY SAGA SERIES BY MICHELE SIMS

Teaser 3

ACT I SEED ON FIRE

Twenty five years before the events in the novel, The Fire God Tour, Kaiden and Alicia Moore, originally from North Carolina, were enjoying a life full of love and passion.  As a young, beautiful and an upwardly mobile professional couple who had made their home in New York City, they were busy balancing their careers with the demands of their new marriage which as fate would have it, included an unexpected bundle of joy. They got pregnant on their honeymoon and so began their adventure in this novel, The Seed on Fire, a sexy contemporary romance of a multi-cultural couple with elements of fantasy that is also the prequel to the novel The Fire God Tour.

Nothing about their lives together has ever been typical and their relationship will forever be changed by a series of nightmarish events that threaten their love and the life of their unborn child. Will their commitment to each other and support of their close knit family be enough to cope with their challenges? Come and join them on their journey as they experience the joys and excitement awaiting the birth of their son, Miles Aridio Moore, a process, to their surprise, also fosters a period of significant self-growth.

Teaser 5

ACT II PLAYING WITH FIRE

This is the second installation of Cade and Lecia Moore’s romantic suspense story. Cade’s music career is taking off. While finishing a schedule of gigs in Paris, he gets a call from his brother Vincent back in the states, who has been watching over Cade’s son, Miles, and his wife, Lecia. Vincent has some surprising news. Miles, now seven, is showing extraordinary abilities that allow him to produce fire. As a member of the Network, a secret society with nearly bottomless resources, Vincent has been able to determine that Miles’s abilities aren’t unique but an extremely rare genetic mutation.

Cade returns to the states to be with his family, but it’s clear that life cannot go on as normal when Miles suffers from an intense illness that leaves him immobile and mute for days. Through Vincent’s Network contacts, Cade and Lecia are able to find adequate care for Miles at a facility that understands his condition.

Aside from his unusual ability, Miles shows an affinity for several other skills, from writing as a result of his extensive vocabulary, to singing and dancing. But a dark side also appears: in the notebook he uses to list new words he learns, he’s keeping a separate list—of people who he plans to make disappear.

Teaser 2

THE FIRE GOD TOUR

Miles Moore, baptized in the faith and raised in a spiritual family but…every thing he does isn’t Christian. Bella Wahlberg can’t save his soul but, she had the power to claim his heart.

Meet Deborah King, author of “Bedazzled Dreamer”

tour banner

~~~

Please welcome author Deborah King to Nesie’s Place! Thank you for spending a little time Deborah Kingwith us here on the blog today!

You’re welcome, it’s my pleasure.

Where are you from?

I’ve lived in St. Louis, MO, a mid-western state in the US, for most of my life. I’ve also had the wonderful opportunity to live in a rural area of the state for a few years.

Married with children, pets, or annoying roommates?

I’m married to an extremely supportive husband. I’ve been blessed with considerate adult children, a son and a daughter. I’m also a stepmom to two, teenage young men.

Are you self-published, traditional, or hybrid?

I chose the Indie author route after watching many webinars and learning about how the traditional book publishing avenues have changed over the last few years. It’s been a long drawn out process, and I continue to struggle with the marketing aspects.

How long have you been a writer?

I’ve been a writer for a little over three years, though I’ve spend most of my time learning the ins and outs of the industry, marketing, etc.

How long did it take you to write your first book?

Daring Dreamer cover

Daring Dreamer, book one in the Inspiration in Cologne series took me one year to write, not including my editor’s reviews and suggestions. I’ve managed to tone my writing skills and have written books two and three in six months.

Pantser or Plotter?

I do plot my stories, though my characters take over and I become a pantser!

What’s your favorite genre to write or do you only write in one genre?

I only write in one genre: romantic women’s fiction. I will continue to write in this particular genre, though will add a bit of suspense or mystery in my next series.

What’s your favorite genre to read?

I enjoy reading many different genres. If I had to pick my favorite genre, I would choose romantic women’s fiction.

What are you reading now?

I’m reading Winter Cottage by Mary Ellen Taylor. I’m enjoying her story immensely.

Where do you get the most writing done?

I write in the late afternoons until eleven or twelve o’clock in my favorite comfy chair with one or both of my cats sitting on my lap, legs, or wherever they can find a spot.

Do you have pets who “help” or inspire you?

I’m so happy you asked! I adopted two rescue kittens some years ago: tabbies, brother and sister. They are adorable! I’m honestly afraid to keep track of their age at this point in time. I wrote them into Daring Dreamer.

Totally addicted to social media or could you live without it?

I wouldn’t say I’m addicted to social media, though I love interacting with my Advanced Reader Group on Facebook. Twitter and Pinterest are fun if I’m looking for a break, though I run out of time to become overly involved.

What’s your next project or release?

I have just finished writing the first draft of book three in the Inspiration in Cologne series and am now reviewing and editing my manuscript. I will write a fourth book in the series to tie up loose ends.

I then plan on beginning my second series, which will be set in a picturesque valley of a majestic mountainous region. My favorite travel destinations are in the mountains and I enjoy hiking, which will enable me to write about another passion of mine.

Do you have any advice for new authors?

Have patience with yourself and the marketing aspects, if you go the self-publishing route. Don’t doubt your writing. But most importantly, if you think your story has been written, it hasn’t. Only you can write your story because we’re all unique and possess our own perspectives. So, of course, I would encourage someone to follow their dream of writing and advise them to continue. The process evolves with each book you write.

Thank you!

I would like to personally thank you for participating in Bedazzled Dreamer’s Rachel’s Random Resource’s tour.

You’re welcome, Deborah!

Blind Shot cover

THE BLIND SHOT BY J.L. CAMPBELL

When all else fails, love will find a way.

Kofi Danquah has travelled halfway around the globe for fifteen years, satisfying his need for advancement and adventure. In that time, he has never met another woman as intriguing as Regina Chu. She’s a chameleon—a wild child with issues she hides behind a playful persona.

In Gina’s eyes, Kofi is a mystery—exotic, intense and secretive. His sober nature balances her bubbly personality and unconventional approach to life. Plus, he’s appealing enough to make her forget they’re from separate worlds.

Time spent together changes Kofi and Gina’s platonic relationship into an attraction that burns hot despite their cultural differences and the disapproval of their families. But fairy tales don’t always last and true love needs fertile soil in which to bloom.

EXCERPT

Kofi left my side and took a spin around the room. He stopped beside a window that gave a view of the yard. Even in a white tee-shirt and knee-length shorts, he was distracting—despite the state I was in. After several minutes, he faced me. “Come here.”

I dragged myself to where he stood and looked up at him.

He took me by both hands and as he drew me in, his breath wafted across my forehead. Cherished and protected, that’s how I felt in his arms.

“What was that for?” I asked.

“Do I need a reason to hug you?”

I shook my head and tried to lighten the moment. “You’re getting to be as weird as I am.”

He kissed my forehead and then chuckled. “Nope. Since I knew you needed a hug. I supplied it.”

Stepping backward, I met his eyes. “Do you believe what I just told you?”

“Why wouldn’t I? Everything you’ve told me supports what I thought before you said a word about what happened to you.”

“And you still want to be with me?”

“I ask you again. Why wouldn’t I?” He pulled me close, squeezing me to his chest. “Come here, you crazy woman.”

While he hugged me, I mumbled in his shirt. “I just thought that maybe you’d think less of me.”

“Why would I? It wasn’t your fault.” Kofi tipped my chin up, but I wouldn’t look above his lips. “It only makes me love you more.”

My heart stopped for at least a couple of seconds. I was sure of it. Since I wasn’t convinced Kofi’s words weren’t a mistake or him trying to comfort me, I let the moment pass.

“You know the worst part?” I asked, sniffling.

“I can’t know, so I’m asking you to share that with me.”

I ran one finger over the bulging muscles in his arm. “The biggest problem my mother has with you is the color of your skin … as if we aren’t black, too.”

Kofi’s grin was filled with mischief. “I figured that out the minute she laid eyes on me.”

A GINGERBREAD ROMANCE BY LACEY BAKER

As an architect, she designs beautiful buildings… But will her heart ever find a place to call home?

Taylor’s architectural firm enters her in a contest to build life-sized gingerbread houses. After the contest, she’s likely to get a promotion to a position in another city. But it’s a team competition, and Taylor’s temperamental partner soon backs out. Taylor needs a replacement―fast.

When she meets Adam, a baker and single dad, she convinces him to be her partner in the contest. After all, winning would give his bakery much-needed exposure.

For years, Taylor has avoided thinking of anywhere as “home.” When she was a kid, her family was always on the move. But the time she spends with Adam and his daughter Brooke, decorating for Christmas and enjoying Philadelphia’s holiday traditions, has her questioning everything. Could she have found a place to call her own?
