Virtual Book Tour: The Variant Conspiracy Trilogy - Terra Novel #review @chris_a_hart



NA Sci-fi Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Irina Proffer leaves home to follow creepy visions inspired by odd tarot cards. In BC’s capital, she uncovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery. A job that feels too good to be true and a powerful first love almost derail her, but the conspiracy she encounters is terrifying and undeniable.
An engineered earthquake overshadowed by a planned Armageddon forces Irina and her friends to travel south. Their investigation launches a journey that takes them through the Pacific states, into the Mojave Desert, and through a mind-bending portal to London – all while Irina’s love fights for his life.
As the group faces a vicious pandemic virus, they race south again, this time chasing a timeless evil through Europe and Africa. When they finally confront a demonic alien outside a Nairobi slum, it costs them everything as they fight to stop the end of the world.




Book 1


Irina Proffer leaves mundane small-town life behind when she experiences visions inspired by a strange deck of tarot cards. To get answers, she travels from her northern British Columbia home to the province’s coastal capital. She quickly discovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery.

Working for Innoviro Industries, Irina is drawn in by a powerful first love and compelling, yet dangerous questions about the nature of the company’s business. Meeting other ‘variants’ brings Irina closer and closer to the dark truth about her origins. She finds herself at the heart of two overlapping love triangles as she scrambles to escape her employer’s grip.

Before she leaves the city, Irina realizes she has merely scratched the surface of a frightening conspiracy on a global scale.


Book 2


Irina and her renegade variant friends are scrambling to pick up the trail of their former employer, Ivan, and his globally catastrophic scheme. After strategically sharing their story with the media, the group heads south from Vancouver to Seattle hoping to recruit more experienced—and lethal—variants to their cause.

Their attention develops a laser focus on an engineered disaster mere days ahead of them. Ivan is using what staff and resources remain of Innoviro Industries to set off a violent earthquake in San Francisco. While they fight to stop the earthquake, Irina pushes the love of her life Jonah as far away as she can, trying to keep his unstable genetic degradation in check.

Irina’s friends think they’ve seen the worst that Innoviro could bring forth by the time they reach a secret facility in the Mojave Desert. As they near the property, the group uncovers a horror none of them had ever imagined.



Book 3


The end of the humanity and an unrecognizable future Earth are now days away. After their first glimpse of the Terra Nova virus, Irina and her variant friends know their former employer’s plans are almost at hand. Their failed attempt to publicize Ivan and Innoviro Industries’ horrific activities has left them utterly reliant on their own wits and weapons.

After surviving a catastrophic earthquake in San Francisco and destroying a secret viral testing facility, Irina’s crew has traveled by a variant portal to London. On the other side of the world, they begin tracking when and where Terra Nova will be unleashed on the world. They know stopping Terra Nova is only the beginning of unraveling Ivan’s plans to reinvent the planet, but if they can’t stop this virus, there will be no one left to save.



Review

I loved the descriptive way this novel was written. It really submerges the reader into the world.  

There were a lot of moving parts to this one and I really liked the originality that Hart brought not to just  this installment, but the series as a whole.

This novel was very vivid. The writing really jumped off of the pages and into my mind. Kudo's to her for that! 

These characters each have their own personalities and depth to them, they've also shown growth from novel to novel. None of them felt one-dimensional or forced, they all shined through as individuals.

Great end to a new Fantasy Series!

Virtual Book Tour: Power Struggle by @Carolyn_Arnold #review #giveaway




Mystery
Date Published: November 28, 2017
Publisher: Hibbert & Stiles Publishing Inc.

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


One hit man who’s back for revenge.
One detective who’s not going down without a fight.

It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing her best to consider all the evidence.

When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, however, her suspicions are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly clear that not only does he plan to finish what he started but he has her family and loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.

Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…

Virtual Book Tour: Angels and Patriots With a #review and #giveaway @SalinaBBaker




Historical Fantasy
Date Published: December 2017
Publisher: Culper Press

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png 

Sons of Liberty, Lexington & Concord, Bunker Hill

On the eve of the Revolutionary War, American patriots are leaving their homes and families behind to stand firm against the British. What these early Americans do not realize, is that while they prepare themselves for their battles, a war is simultaneously playing out among the soldiers—one that poses a far greater threat to their lives and souls.

Demons that God created to kill a brotherhood of fallen angels are fanning the embers of the Revolutionary War to draw the angels out of hiding. They walk and fight alongside patriots and British soldiers alike.

Archangel, Colm Bohannon, leads his angel brothers to Boston to track down the demon leader and to warn John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Dr. Joseph Warren, and the Sons of Liberty that the British army is not their only threat. The patriots will need to engage with two enemy forces on the battlefield. As it stands, the band of angels is road weary and struggling with infighting and earthly temptations. Is faith a strong enough shield to fight off demon attacks and protect the patriots?


Angels & Patriots is the violent struggle for freedom, played out on the battlefield and the firmament as the angels fend off the demons in a quest to serve both humans and God.

Review

There is something so fun about being transported back in time and feeling like your living in a different era if an author can execute it well, its an even better escape than reading Contemporary. Add to that the fantastical element with Gods and Demons and Angels, and I was sucked in.

Interview


What is the hardest part of writing your books?  I love doing the research.  For me the hardest part is the beginning, getting the story off the ground.  Endings can be tricky as well.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?  I love America by Ray Charles, Creep, Revelation Song, Sympathy for the Devil, and Sledgehammer.  I also love anything by the Grateful Dead.  Seen them 34 times back in the day and then Jerry Garcia died.


Do you have critique partners or beta readers? No.  My husband will read my work and give me his two cents, but that’s about it.


What book are you reading now?  Fouccault’s Pendulum


How did you start your writing career?  I always wanted to write a novel, and then I got laid off.  One novel turned into seven.  I am working again, fulltime, but have managed to find the time.  I love it.


Tell us about your next release.  The Sequel continues where The Best Seller left off.  If you are interested in World War II, Hitler, Hollow Earth, Maria Orsic, occult/alien connections, and DNA, then you will like this story line.  Here’s a blurb.

Virtual Book Tour: A Rumored Affair by @vikilynromance #interview



M/M Contemporary Romance
Date Published: October 3, 2017
Publisher: Loose ID

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Vacationing at a gay resort is risky business for Winter Media’s CEO, Graham Winters. In negotiations for the purchase of an anti-LGBTQ publication, if found out he preferred men, the deal would collapse, along with Winter Media’s bottom line. But take a risk, Graham does. He can’t pass up two weeks where he can be himself.

But when Graham arrives at Secretus, there is no record of his reservation. Never one to take no for an answer, he coerces the owner of Secretus, Chris Katsaros, to let him stay in Chris’s home.

Winter Media owns one of the worst gossip rags in the country, so Chris has no choice but to agree to Graham’s terms. Chris keeps a low profile when it comes to Secretus, securing a safe environment where high profile gays can relax without media hounding their every move. An introvert by nature, Chris has a difficult time letting anyone into his life. As a foster kid, he had never experienced love until adopted by Pete and Bob.

Forced to entertain Graham, Chris finds they have more in common than he ever thought. The attraction between them is real, and Chris’s guarded heart begins to thaw.


Interview

What is the hardest part of writing your books?

Writing the middle section of a story. The beginning is always exciting, the first words on the page inspiring. Then as the story progresses, the characters get stubborn and want to go in another direction. I have to rein in their ambitions! And, keeping the situations fresh becomes more challenging. More and more, I’m writing ‘sweeter’ stories, yes with sex scenes, but not as many.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?

This changes over time. Right now I haven’t been listening to songs on my iPhone. I bought a new car and have Sirius XM radio. My set channels are 60’s rock, 70’s rock, 80’s rock, Symphony Hall, Beatles channel…yes, I’m very old school.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

The past few years, I’ve been writing with Vina Grey. We’re always bouncing ideas off each other. I have a young, male friend who writes Sci/Fi. He’s my beta reader, and since he’s gay, he critiques my sex scenes. His biggest complaint, my characters talk too much during sex! I try to explain that I’m writing romance and I need to focus on how my men are feeling. LOL


What book are you reading now?

I just finished reading A Gentleman In Moscow and a biography about Peggy Guggenheim. I belong to two book clubs – one is literary fiction and the other is an art/history book group. I fell in love with the main character in A Gentleman In Moscow – Count Alexander Rostov. 
.
How did you start your writing career?

I started my career when I was a kid. I loved pretending more than playing with toys. I would make up characters, and places and stories, and then act them out. I lived in my own imaginary world. As I grew older, I never thought about being a writer, but being creative had always been an important part of my life. I have an art degree, and I’m a visual artist, as well as an art instructor. Writing came much later in life, just for fun.


Loose ID will (hopefully) publish the final book of my Kresnik/Vampire Chances series. No Chance is ready to be sent to my editor. The story stars Stu and Cor’s Uncle Viktor, who had a bit part in the second book, Fighting Chance. Viktor’s story languished in my hard drive for years. Even though it’s been ages since the last book came out, I really, really wanted to complete the series. I love the Kresnik world I had created from Slavic myths and tales. So I hope that my readers will enjoy revisiting Viktor’s world.


PS: A book that I co-wrote with Vina Grey, Long, Tall Cowboy, has been sent to a publisher for consideration. We are keeping our fingers crossed, and if it is chosen for publication, then this book should be out early next year.

Blog Tour: Dennis & Greer by @mollymgould



Historical Romance
Date Published: October 3, 2017
Publisher: Belle Reve Press

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Dennis and Greer is a nonfiction love story in letters and journals between 2 college students during the Vietnam era. (This is nonfiction that reads like fiction)

A true story that encapsulates the horrors of war and the innocence of young love.

Buried in a trunk for fifty years, this long-forgotten tale, told through letters and journals from the war-torn Vietnam era, has been resurrected.

College students, Dennis and Greer, met and felt a spark just before moving to different states. Their witty correspondence through letters conjured a desire to meet again, but Dennis tried to keep his distance; duty is more important than love.

As the two embarked on their journey into adulthood and navigated their relationship against the backdrop of war, they were writing a love story that will span the test of time.

About the Author


ASU graduate, Molly Gould, lived in the wilderness for 28 days when she was 16 years old (she’s your go-to-girl in the zombie apocalypse). She now confines herself indoors with the AC full-blast in her sunny sate of AZ. Occasionally, she’ll brave the scorching heat with her husband and four children.

When Molly inherited a treasure of vintage journals and letters, she was swept away by the love story contained within those writings. She couldn’t keep Dennis and Greer to herself, so she began transcribing and Dennis and Greer was born.
