…She falls against me.  Her sandal goes skidding across the stone.  The breath stops in my throat.  My legs start to go, but Annie doesn’t give a toss.  She bounces off me, running again, laughing and spluttering like that dodgy tap.  She kicks out, sending her other sandal up into the air ahead of us.  I watch it turn, silver and gold against the dark blue clouds.  And another lorry comes roaring in.

Are you scared about our on-line and real-life security in this digital era? I am. 

Every day, I witness the power and influence of electronics in our children’s lives and fear for their future. What has happened to person-to-person communication?  Where has truth gone? You can be liked and unliked with a click. The internet is freedom but anarchy reigns. Who can our children trust?

Jana glanced up at the man her minion brought to the back office and then back at her records, her eyes confirming what her ears had already known—he was impressive, this mage with summer-sweet skin and gleaming, golden eyes. 

A Lightkeeper, purifier, a paladin, a light wielder of the highest order.

#1Day Blog Blitz ~ The Dating Game by @Susan_Buchanan #Extract + #Giveaway @rararesources

I’m happy to share an extract for the 1 Day Blog Blitz, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources

The Dating Game

Gill is looking forward to her date with the cute Irishman

Gill sat down as Sean went to the bar. She loved his accent. Irish accents always did it for her, but Sean’s was particularly hitting the spot. He did look quite young. She knew he was only thirty-five, two years younger than her, but he barely seemed thirty. His photo hadn’t done him justice at all. And he scrubbed up well, too; gone was the unkempt look from his photo. So, he had made an effort. Good. When he returned, he leant across her slightly to place her drink down and she breathed in the smell of his aftershave – not too noticeably she hoped. It wouldn’t do for it to seem as if she were trying to drink him in. He scored a comfortable eight for presentation.

#Extract from Treachery Times Two by Robert McCaw @RobertBMcCaw #MurderMystery

I’m pleased to share an extract from Robert McCaw’s newly released novel, Treachery Times Two (book 4 in the Koa Kane Hawaiian mysteries) with the kind permission of Oceanview Publishing.

Extract

CHAPTER ONE 

Pele, masquerading as a glassy-haired old woman, wandered the lava trails around the massive smoking volcanic caldera called Kīlauea. Over millennia, her temper tantrums had created the Hawaiian Islands, including Kīlauea and the four other volcanoes that make up the Big Island of Hawaii. Fiercely jealous of Poliahu, her sister deity, the snow goddess of Mauna Kea, and locked in eternal combat with Kamapuaa, the demigod of rain, Peles exploits fueled the oral history of the islands.

Today I have a short extract to share from the new romance by Summerita Rhayne…

extractbanner

‘There is too much in our past, Adith.’ She shook her head. ‘You would never be able to forgive me and as for understanding…if I had any hope, don’t you think I would have tried?’

To her surprise, he stayed quiet. He didn’t argue that she should have tried. Then she realized he was so set on the next step he was going to bide his time. Like a patient jaguar. She saw it in his eyes, eyes that had always fascinated her. Brown and grey, intense or light depending on his mood and they showed varied shades now.

#SpotlightFeature ~ The Sound of Violet by Allen Wolf #Extract @theallenwolf

The Sound of Violet, a romantic comedy/drama, will be published on the 21st September by Morning Star Publishing. The book has also been made into a movie.

From the author’s website… ‘The Sound of Violet is a feature-length romantic dramedy based on the award-winning novel. The movie takes place in Seattle rather than New York City, where the novel is based. Audiences will see autism and human trafficking through a new lens through this compelling story.’

Today I have an extract to share…enjoy!

Shawn didn’t feel like an adult because adults were married, and he struggled to get through a date. He was twenty-four years old and looked like a man, with his powder-blue eyes, a trim physique, and a handsome face on a well-shaped head crowned with light brown hair. But he had never quite gotten used to his long arms and legs. When he walked, it looked like Shawn was carefully stepping between raindrops, especially when he started noticing all the colors around him.
