#BlogTour! #QandA with the author of ‘Awakening the Trinity’, Brittany Elise (@BrittanyElise23) @RaRaResources

awakening the triniity
Today for my stop on the ‘Awakening the Trinity’ blog tour, I have a Q and A with the author, Brittany Elise. Before we get down to the ‘interrogation’, here is a little bit more information about her book, as well as the all important ‘to buy’ links:

awakening cover1
In the seventeenth-century, an all-powerful witch called Rionach the Dark ruled the Celtic nations with an army of enslaved werewolves. In order to restore balance between Light and Dark, the Trinity of Light was summoned to vanquish the Dark Witch and end the Battle of the Dark Ages.

Seventeen-year-old Quinn Callaghan lives in the small, rustic town of Silver Mountain. Its
location may be rural, but it is home to an ancient pine forest that surrounds a supernatural hotspot–a nexus of raw and powerful energy.
When a charismatic witch from Ireland, and a mysterious guy with a secret of his own are drawn to the area, Quinn finds out that she inherited her rare abilities from a revered ancestor.

Could it be that she shares a bloodline with the Original Trinity? Nearly 300 years later, the Darkness is returning to Silver Mountain, and the Trinity must stop it.

Q and A with Brittany Elise.

TWG – Could you tell us a bit about you and your background before you began writing?

I’ve been writing since I was a young girl, but I suppose I didn’t pursue it as a career choice until I was out of college. I actually graduated with a degree in photography, and later became a certified obedience instructor. I also manage an FBO at a small-town airport and I’ve been there for almost eleven years.

TWG – Have you always wanted to become a published writer?

   Always. There’s nothing I adore more than writing, and having those dreams realized has been such a blessing for me. It’s not an easy industry to break into. There’s still a lot more I hope to accomplish with future publications.

TWG – What made you decide to write your new novel?

  I love the world of supernatural fiction. It’s my go-to favorite for writing just because I get to use my imagination and write about a world I wish was real. I actually owe a great deal to the novel’s spark (so to speak) to one of Aqualung’s songs called Strange and Beautiful.

TWG – How hard was it to find the inspiration for your book?

Not hard at all. I find inspiration in so many different areas of life, and as soon as I get an idea it grows and I have a hard time actually shutting it off.

TWG – If you could pick a favourite character from your novel, who would it be and why?

I would have to say that my favorite character in this novel is probably Wren. He was such a fun character to create. To me, he’s kind of that perfect male lead for a YA novel. He’s confident, he’s gorgeous, he’s caring, and he sort of has that bad-boy persona going for him but there’s many layers that make him a unique character.

TWG – Did you ever regret writing a character into your story after it was published?

So far, I have no regrets with the character’s I’ve created. There’s characters that I might love to hate, but they are there for a reason.

TWG – Did you find yourself under any personal pressure for your debut novel to succeed and be liked by many?

I think as a writer, you always have hope that people will love your writing, or the story that you are trying to tell. But you have to go into that knowing that you’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea – and that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. You should always be learning and growing. Even if I never get published again, I will always write. It’s who I am, and I don’t need anyone to tell me that.  

TWG – Time for a tough one, if you could choose any book that has already been published to be the author of, which one would you choose and why?

Oh, I have a few on the list… Hmm, probably The Hunger Games. Those novels are incredible, and I love the storyline. (And of course, Harry Potter) haha.

TWG – What does your ‘writing space’ look like?

I like to write at the kitchen table when I’m home. It’s really the only place in my house that has a lot of natural light, and I like curling up with a blanket and a cup of coffee or tea in the early hours of the morning to work. Here lately I have been taking over my husband’s office and using his desk. (His chair is more comfortable, haha.)

TWG – Were there any authors you wanted to be like, when you were a child?

      Sarah Dessen is my teenage-self’s hero. I love everything she’s written, and I still aspire to put something out in the world of similar caliber.

TWG – If you had to sum up your book to a stranger in five words, what would they be and why?

Oh, that’s a tough one. Writers aren’t good with short answers, haha. I don’t think I can do it. There’s so many elements in my novel, I wouldn’t want to leave anything out. I had a hard enough time coming up with a short synopsis. ;P

TWG – What’s coming up next for you? Any exclusives?

     I am actually working on the prequel and sequel to Awakening the Trinity (simultaneously) and hope to have at least one of those released by fall of 2019. I’m also working on some New Adult romance novels though, so we’ll see what’s in the cards for me.

TWG – One final question. What advice would you give to a writer that wants to be published? Any words of wisdom?

Never give up. Remind yourself why you wanted it so badly in the first place, and don’t let other people discourage you. You will have days where you absolutely loathe everything you are writing – walk away from the keyboard when that happens. Read everything. You can only grow when you’re learning.

Huge thanks to Brittany Elise for stopping by for a chat! Good luck with the book!!

About the author.

My love for writing began at a very young age–way before I could even type
on a keyboard. I was always writing short stories and poems with a fan club of one (my
mom.) I never stopped writing, but I don’t think I believed in myself enough to actually
pursue it as a career. When I enrolled in college, I took as many creative writing classes as they offered, and ended up graduating with a degree in photography and minoring in English.

I enjoy art in all its forms, but writing has always been my first love. Even when I was
pursuing other careers, writing was always my go-to comfort. I later became an animal
obedience instructor and met a children’s author through my dog training. She helped me get my foot through the door, so to speak, and I haven’t turned back since. During the day, I manage an FBO at my local hometown airport, and by night, I dive into my writing with my husband and my four-legged children by my side.

#CoverReveal! Knowing You by Samantha Tonge (@SamTongeWriter) @RaRaResources @canelo_co

Third and final cover reveal of the day is for a change of direction for a very popular author. Samantha Tonge is going a little bit darker with her brand new novel, ‘Knowing You’, and I am delighted to be revealing the cover today!
I am so intrigued! Cannot wait to read this!


An abrupt change; a new friendship; a dark secret…
  Kind-hearted Violet has never fitted in, but despite being bullied at school is now content. She is dating ambitious Lenny, has her dream job in publishing and runs a book club at the local retirement home.
 However, when her relationship with Lenny begins to falter, Violet, hurt and alone, seeks the advice of her new flatmate, Bella. She changes her image and with her head held high aims to show that she doesn’t need Lenny in her life to be happy and successful.
 Her long-term friends Mable and Farah worry about Bella’s influence and slowly Violet starts to distance herself from them. When she was a child, her closest confidant and companion was a boy called Flint. Her mother didn’t approve of their closeness and he suffered a terrible end. She won’t let the same thing happen to Bella, no matter what anyone says…
 Knowing You is about friendship and knowing who to trust with your deepest secrets; it’s about taking control of your life and not being afraid to stand out. Perfect for fans of Ruth Hogan, Gail Honeyman and Amanda Prowse

#BlogTour! #Review – #LouisandLouise by Julie Cohen (@Julie_Cohen) @OrionBooks @Tr4cyF3nt0n


I am delighted to be reviewing Julie Cohen’s latest novel, ‘Louis & Louise’ for my stop on the blog tour today. Many thanks to Tracy Fenton for the blog tour invite, and thanks to Orion for the ARC. Here is my review:

If you could look at one life in two different ways, what would you see?
Louis and Louise are separated by a single moment in time, a strike of chance that decided their future. The day they were born is when their story began.

In one, Louis David Alder is born a male.
In the other, Louise Dawn Alder is born a female.

Louis and Louise are the same in many ways – they have the same best friends, the same parents, the same dream of being a writer and leaving their hometown in Maine as soon as they can. But because of their gender, everything looks different. Certain things will happen in their lives to shape them, hurt them, build them back up again. But what will bring them back home?

What does TWG think?

I’ll be honest, i wasn’t sure what to expect with this novel and, as weird as this sounds, i hadn’t really sat and thought about gender in a complex manner before. I mean, i know what gender is, obviously, but i hadn’t paid too much attention to the differences in society. I’m not saying i havent’t done that because of ignorance on my part, it’s simply because i haven’t had the need to. Until now.

‘Louis & Louise’ highlights the differences in how society sees gender, as well as how the two genders are potrayed socially in groups. Not only that, this book highlights how Louis and Louise’s individual actions affect those around them from a physical and emotional point of view. Julie Cohen has constructed her novel in an incredibly clever way which makes her readers think without even being aware. This story is about the same life being told twice – how does Louis’ life differ from Louise’s? Most importantly, WHY should it differ? Surely both genders should be able to do the same things with prejudice, like playing football, watching romantic comedies, to name a couple of examples.Why should people assume that just because someone is a girl, that they shouldn’t play football and should only wear pink? And why should males be told that they need to be ‘macho’ and not show emotion, purely because of their gender?

‘Louis & Louise’ is such a one of a kind, powerful read which has been written with intense emotion and dry humour. Like i’ve already said, I really didn’t know what to expect but i am bowled over by just how magical and thought provoking this novel was to read. I may not have had any expectations beforehand but, thanks to Julie Cohen’s iconic novel, this novel is definitely going to stay with me for a long time to come.

Insightful, eye-opening, emotional and beautifully written, ‘Louis & Louise’ has put itself on the map in a variety of ways. I really did enjoy this!!

#CoverReveal! Unexpected by Kelly Rimmer (@KelRimmerwrites) @Phoebe_Swinburn @Headlinepg

It’s a multiple cover reveal day here at TWG, and I an soooooo excited! I love cover reveals!!! First reveal of the day is for an author who is best known for making her readers ugly cry…..all the way from a very sunny country…..

Some might say that her books are unexpected…..

Are you ready for this? I am delighted to reveal the cover of Kelly Rimmer’s upcoming novel, Unexpected. Thank you to the lovely Phoebe Swinburn for asking me to do so!

Co-parenting with her best friend. What could go wrong?

The next three decades of Abby Herbert’s life are as carefully planned out as the last three were. Best career ever? Check. Great friends, one of whom she lives with in a stunning TriBeCa apartment? Check. Perfect man to share her dream family? Surely just a matter of time. But then she gets devastating news from her doctor – if she wants to get pregnant, she needs to get started on that by…well, yesterday. On the bright side, she has the perfect person in mind to be the father.

Tech entrepreneur Marcus Ross has been harbouring decidedly not-friends feelings toward Abby. He doesn’t want to lose her and, knowing his feelings are one-sided, he’s been trying to move on. When he learns about the curveball Abby’s just been hit with, he promises to be there for her however she wants him to be, even if the idea of fatherhood is a little complicated for him right now. But it isn’t long until boundaries start to blur, and a deal struck between friends starts to turn into something perilously close to feelings that could change everything…

Unexpected by Kelly Rimmer will be published by Headline on the 28th May, but can be pre ordered now from Amazon UK.

#BlogTour! #Review – To Catch a Killer by Emma Kavanagh (@EmmaLK) @OrionBooks @AlainnaGeorgiou #ToCatchAKiller

blog-tour-poster
Day three of the #ToCatchAKiller blog tour is here, and I am delighted to be sharing my review with you all for my stop on the tour. Many thanks to Alainna and Orion for the blog tour invite and ARC. Here is my review:

9781409174981

I’ve been watching you DS Alice Parr.

I saw you trying to save the poor young woman you found in the park.

The woman I tried to kill.

I’ve been waiting for you to find her family. To find someone who cares about her.

But you can’t can you?

You’ve never had a case like this.

I know everything about you. You know nothing about me.

Even though I’m the man you’re looking for.

And you will never catch me…

What does TWG think?

Where do I even begin?! There’s a killer on the loose. The thing is, the police know WHO he is….ish, but they have no idea where he is or how they keep missing him. One minute he’s in the vicinity they want, and then the next he has disappeared into thin air. Will DS Alice Parr, and the rest of the team, finally get their hands on their man?

I really wasn’t sure of this book to begin with as I felt like I had just walked into the middle of someone else’s thoughts, missing the vital first half. Should I have been aware of anything before I began reading? It felt like it, but I don’t think so…now anyway. The thing is, ‘To Catch A Killer’ is hugely psychologically based, and the fact that readers are deeply rooted into Alice Parr’s brain throughout the duration of the blog, makes the storyline one of the most complex and intense books I think I have ever read. I’m not complaining at all – it just took a little bit of getting used to.

Once I was a little more familiar with Parr’s train of thought, I was able to sink my teeth further into the storyline and get stuck into the nitty-gritty. By golly there were a lot of them!!

I had never picked up an Emma Kavanagh novel before now, so I really had no idea what to expect in terms of the writing style or the way in which the author approached certain things. Now, having read ‘To Catch A Killer’, I can guarantee that it will not be the only book I delve into from this author.

The storyline was fast paced and highly complex in both a confusing, and suspenseful way. It just goes to show that over thinking is the devil, and that sometimes things are, more often than not, stuck under your very nose, with the realisation hitting far too late.

DS Parr is one intriguing character, I have to admit. Her approach to work is rather interesting, although it’s clear that she struggles to keep the emotional aspect away from her job. I can’t blame her really, although in that line of work, if you became emotional during every single case, you’d end up being off work with stress.

All in all I thought ‘To Catch A Killer’ was a psychological work of art, and the way Kavanagh thought outside of the box with her dynamic and multi-layered storyline was pretty outstanding. This book kept me guessing until the very last page and had me gasping in shock at the truth. That said, whilst the truth is revealed to an extent, the storyline does end on an Eastenders dun dun dun….moment, so be prepared to be slightly frustrated! For me, this is what a thriller should be all about. Okay, yes, I was confused at times, but the fact I couldn’t put the book down just goes to show that the storyline held me hostage and, as weird as this sounds, I would quite happily be held hostage by Emma Kavanagh again!

#Review -Her Final Hour by Carla Kovach (@CKovachAuthor) @Bookouture

51wmpgtxmal

Melissa Sanderson is the perfect wife and mother. She dotes on her daughter, and lives in her dream home in a quiet cul-de-sac in the suburbs.

But looks can be deceiving.

Something is amiss in that house – all the neighbours think so. Some say Melissa is having an affair. Others say she’s been drinking too much.

Then one night, sirens wake up the whole neighbourhood.

Melissa Sanderson is dead.

What does TWG think?

‘Her Final Hour’ is book 2 in the ‘Detective Gina Harte’ series and, whilst it’s clear that I am ok to review books out of order (check out my review for the third book in the series, #BlogTour! #Review – Her Pretty Bones by Carla Kovach (@CKovachAuthor) @Bookouture), I actually have read the books in order. It isn’t completely necessary to read the books in the correct order, but be prepared for latter storylines to include snippets from earlier books, if you choose to read them in an order that suits you.

Gina Harte seemed to be the main focus of ‘Her Final Hour’ for multiple reasons, all which become clear at the storyline progresses. That said, there are plenty of other characters who make themselves known for their diabolical choices.

I have got to say that the prologue of ‘Her Final Hour’ is one of the most gripping and chilling prologues I think I have ever read! If I hadn’t already been hooked by the first book in the series, I can guarantee that I would have been gripped to choking point after reading the first chapter of this book. Seriously. Carla Kovach has such a unique writing style which she showcases phenomenally throughout this entire book.

There was a lot of this storyline which left my mouth as dry as the Sahara desert and as though my stomach was full of rocks – but as weird as this sounds, I welcomed my uncertain reaction to it because after all, I am human!

I thought the fact that Gina Harte’s personal life gets put under the spotlight in regards to the teams latest case, was very cleverly done as it allowed readers an insight to the Detective which we may not have seen otherwise. I won’t lie and say that the contents were easy to read, because they weren’t, yet it worked because its life and things like the events in this book, happen in everyday life.

If my heart rate was being measured whilst I was reading ‘Her Final Hour’, I reckon there would have been a high chance of me going overboard – I’m genuinely surprised that I remembered to breathe! Just….

‘Her Final Hour’ is a dark, spine tingling read which kept me prisoner from start to finish. A truly outstanding addition to a belter of a series.

#BlogTour! #Review – A Promise to the Dead by Victoria Jenkins (@vicwritescrime) @Bookouture

thumbnail_a promnise to the dead - blog tour
It’s day two of Victoria Jenkins’ blog tour for ‘A Promise to the Dead’, and the blog tour stops here with me, TWG! I am delighted to be sharing my review with you all for my stop on the tour, and many thanks to Bookouture for the blog tour invite and ARC. Here is my review:

thumbnail_a-promise-to-the-dead-kindle
The blur of shapes began to sharpen, forming a clear picture that stood out against the darkened background. For a moment he couldn’t move, his fear rendering him immobile. He needed help. He turned to run.

On a dark night, on a mountain road, a young couple, Matthew and Stacey, are on their way home from a night out. Their car breaks down and Matthew leaves to look for help. By the next morning, Stacey is found murdered in the car and Matthew is missing, presumed guilty of her murder.

Called to the scene, Detective Alex King and her team soon see some terrifying links – to another local young man who is missing, and to the discovery of a body from 30 years ago.

Alex knows that the missing and the dead have a story to tell her. But will she hear it in time to uncover the killer before they strike again?

What does TWG think?

Holy cheeseballs – what a BELTER of a book!! ‘A Promise to the Dead’ had me hooked from the very beginning due to its highly gripping storyline thrilling teasers.

There isn’t just one death in this book – there are multiple. It reminded me of the domino effect to be honest! If you were to just read the book and take the storyline at face value, it would be very easy to blame a character, or characters, who are right in front of you, for the demolition that has been caused. However, if you were to read between the lines after each eventuality occurred, would you still think the same? Would you still be confident that you had the correct person in the firing line?

My answer to that question, having read the book (obviously), is both yes and no. Why? Because one minute I was very confident by my own conclusion, yet the next minute thanks to the combination of red herrings and multiple uncertainties, I had absolutely no idea who to believe or what to think.

Victoria Jenkins has written a mind-blowing instalment in the ‘Detective King and Lane’ series, with ‘A Promise to the Dead’, in my opinion, being her best book yet.

I LOVED being on the thrilling ride of uncertainty, and I loved how intense every single part of the book was. I was NOT expecting the conclusion in the slightest, and I will definitely hold my hands up and say that I totally didn’t see it coming!

The thrill of the chase and the elements of suspense is what made ‘A Promise to the Dead’ a true gem of a read – I flipping loved it and cannot WAIT to read more from Victoria Jenkins.

#BlogTour! #Extract from ‘Spiral into Darkness’ by Joseph Lewis (@jrlewisauthor) @rararesources

Today as part of the ‘Spiral into Darkness’ blog tour, I will be sharing an extract from the book. Many thanks to RaRaResources for inviting me to take part in the blog tour. Before we get to the extract, however, here is a little bit more about the book:

He blends in. He is successful, intelligent and methodical. There are no clues. There are no leads. The only thing the FBI and local police have to go on is the method of death: two bullets to the face- gruesome and meant to send a message. But it’s difficult to understand any message coming from a dark and damaged mind. Two adopted boys, struggling in their own world, have no idea they are the next targets. Neither does their family. And neither does local law enforcement.

Introduction of a Main Character

Brian is one of my favorite characters because he has heart and depth.

 

 

As he did most often, Brian sat cross-legged on the floor, leaning against both the couch and Jeremy’s leg. As much as Jeremy and Vicky could tell, Brian never strayed too far from either of them in the two months he had lived with them. Yes, he got along just fine with the five other boys. They were best friends. He had known them long before he had moved in after his parents’ death. He would go hunting and fishing with Brett and George, and work the horses and shovel the driveway with George. He started and played on the same basketball team as Brett, Billy, and Randy, and he shared a room with Bobby by mutual choice. Still, where Jeremy or Vicky was, he was not too far away. And where Brian was, Bobby could be found.

#BlogTour! #Review – Her Pretty Bones by Carla Kovach (@CKovachAuthor) @Bookouture

thumbnail_her pretty bones - blog tour
Eeek!!!! It’s TWG’s turn on the ‘Her Pretty Bones’ blog tour, and I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing my review of Carla Kovach’s latest release with you all. Many thanks to Bookouture for the blog tour invite and ARC. Here is my review:

thumbnail_her-pretty-bones-kindle

She’s just the girl he’s looking for…

A young woman falls from a van speeding down a quiet road. Battered and bruised, she turns her head to the person who comes to her aid. ‘Help her’, she whispers before her eyes close.

Days later, the body of another young girl is found in a shallow grave just a few miles away. The similarities between the two girls are startling – same age, same frail body, same shocking red hair.

As the town fears there’s a serial killer living amongst them, Detective Gina Harte must put aside her own struggles at home, and catch the killer before he finds another perfect girl.

What does TWG think?

DI Gina Harte is back, ladies and gentleman!! One of my all-time favourite detectives with her fiery personality and fierce determination to get results. Plus, she also wears her heart on her sleeve which, as she has found out on more than one occasion, it’s something she shouldn’t really make public knowledge incase anyone abuses it. Surely a detective in the police force shouldn’t be admitting they have a heart….right?

‘Her Pretty Bones’ is a firecracker of a read, with a prologue guaranteed to set your pulse racing before anything has really begun. How did the young girl fall from a van? Why was she in there to begin with? Who is she? DI Harte has her work cut out trying to find the answers to such simple yet in this instance, very complex, questions. Of course, hindsight is a wonderful thing and as the storyline progresses, it soon becomes clear that DI Harte wishes she only had the question of ‘who is she?’ to answer, and not everything else.

I certainly did find this book to be a rollercoaster ride of a read as there were moments where the storyline calmed down a little, then went off on a tangent at rocket speed the next. I didn’t find the pace constantly speedy as they were some slow parts (in no way a negative at all as it worked), but it was certainly bumpy which really heightened the urge to know more.

The storyline switches between different points of view which I thought was very cleverly done as I had absolutely no idea who the other point of view was, nor did I have any idea as to how they played a part in the book. Well, I did to a point, but I couldn’t connect the dots…if that makes sense? It’s safe to say that I was hooked on every single event the storyline had to offer, even if they were a tad disturbing!!

Carla Kovach is a genius at creating intense and spine tingling moments in her storylines, leaving me reeling by every eventuality! I love how the author doesn’t just write characters to fill a space, she creates characters who she knows will add another dimension to an already complex storyline, even if its only for one chapter.

‘Her Pretty Bones’ left my pulse racing and my brain on high alert – it seemed to take ages for my breathing to regulate once I had finished the book. I could NOT have seen the conclusion coming if I tried and wow, what a brilliantly written lead up to a firework of an ending.

Chilling, complex, and off the Richter scale in intensity, ‘Her Pretty Bones’ is a beautiful book to look at and a phenomenal one to read. What a series!!!! More please?!
