A blink of an eye. That’s all it took for her life to change forever. After two years, Marcie Faraday still doesn’t believe the crash that took her family was an accident. She is determined to find the answers, even if the truth puts her in danger.

Detectives Booker Dixson and Lashelle Valentine must deliver the news to Jonas Faraday’s widow which is the worst part of their job. Neither believes it should have been ruled an accident.

Booker and Lashelle uncover a connection between Marcie’s late husband and her father’s medical clinical trial. Coincidence or ploy? Booker Dixson does not believe in coincidence.

Deadly Deception is a thrilling journey to uncover the secrets that threaten to shatter the perfect picture of Marcie and her family.

Book Blitz: Leadership by Thomas J. Snee #promo #nonfiction #leadership #rabtbooktour @MKWebsiteandSEO

 

Reaching Out, Pulling Up, Holding On, to Stand Strong Together

 

Nonfiction / Leadership

Date Published: March 24, 2022

Publisher: Mindstir Media

 

What is a 'Shipmate'?

FORCM (SW) Thomas J. Snee, USN, (Ret)

 

This question has often been expressed and shared with me. The 'white hat', as we were so often called, 'halfcocked' on the back of our heads, defined us as persons, who were alwayssearching and looking out to sea for a new life. The right foot on the lines, not to jump or surrender, but a 'leg up' on life's challenges in thought and ideas by persons we call, SHIPMATES

You see, most of us 'signed on as young men', for the seas and a new adventure. We left our hometowns to create, make, and hopefully aim our 'shot line', into new friendships and ports of call. No, we did not forget our hometown friends, but rather, rediscovered a whole new world. Some may think, that when our 'brows' were pulled up, we departed, but to move on, from those anchored pasts. These valued bonds were left for other gangplanks in another life. We moved on to make new and bigger bow waves for smoother wakes, in life's high seas. We did not sign on to organizations or associations to be forgotten, with titles or positions, but as persons of dignity, value, and self-worth, or simply, as SHIPMATES.

So, when you meet that casual friend, remember, they too are persons on a sea detail away from home. They were searching for a bonding as SHIPMATES for a new life. Sometimes lonely, but always, just a bonding in friendship, from the many sea tales of the past, as a SHIPMATE. We are not just another name on the rolls, but real persons, who have feelings, emotions, and needs to reconnect those shot line crossings to each other's bows. We are, after all, and always will be, SHIPMATES, in LEADERSHIP!

Teaser Tuesday: A Magical's Gift by Maya Tyler #promo #teasertuesday #excerpt #paranormalromance #comingsoon #rabtbooktours @mayatylerauthor

 

Paranormal Romance

Date Published: 06-07-2022

Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

The feud between fairies and wizards is an ancient threat in the magical world. Yet peace is possible. The child of a fairy and a wizard could reunite the factions of The Annunaki and end the unrest.

Niall Warde had been a carefree soul trapped in the rigid, ordered life of a wizard apprentice when he discovered the girl of his dreams was a fairy. He would never know if their forbidden love could survive because she disappeared without a trace. Unable to find her, Niall blamed his father for Amelie’s disappearance and left home without looking back.

Amelie Ricard knew she had to protect the baby she and Niall created. The fairies don't want peace and her mother, their leader, would stop at nothing to prevent armistice, including killing her own grandchild. So, she must leave her son Kurtis with his father to be raised as a wizard. She left the infant on the steps of his father’s cottage then disappeared, also leaving behind the only man she’s ever loved.

Thirty years later, Niall is called home for his father’s funeral where he reunites with Amelie. When Kurtis’ life is put into danger, Niall and Amelie must face the demons of the past to protect him.

Neither can bring back the past, but can they have a future together? Will their son unite their people in peace?

 


Excerpt


The heavy conversation hung in the air as thick as the humidity. Amelie understood the pain of losing a parent, but what could she say to comfort Niall? “I didn’t mean to intrude, Niall. Professional hazard? My subjects are usually less lively.”


He let out an unrestrained chuckle. “Amelie, you have a wonderful sense of humor.”


“I’ve been accused of many things, Niall. Having a sense of humor is not one of them.”


He smirked, communicating an entire conversation with the knowing look in his eyes.


She blushed under his direct perusal. “If you didn’t come with the high school tours, what brought you to the university today?”


He looked away as if trying to conceal his discomfort. When he turned to face her, he wore a hesitant look on his face, biting at his bottom lip in a way she just knew was out of character. “It’s foolish. I had a fight with my father. He wants me to join the family business. I don’t.”


Niall paused, but Amelie could see he wanted to confide in her, so she waited for him to continue.


“I parked at the edge of campus and wandered around for a bit. When I saw the large crowd outside the hall, I got curious.”


She muffled a giggle behind her hand. “I bet you were surprised you’d walked into an anthropology information session.”


“I won’t lie. It was the last thing I expected.”

And hard. Takes them out. Fast.

Deputy Marshal Carter has gone missing in Little Butte, Nevada. The Dawsons own the town. The Mexican cartel is moving in on their meth business. A gang war is coming to town. Director Flynn asks Blaze to return for one last assignment. It is up to Blaze to find Carter before all hell breaks loose.

Tour Kick Off: Wild at Heart by Cindy Rogers #blogtour #nowontour #childrensbook #rabtbooktours @MKWebsiteandSEO @farmwithcindy




Children's Book

Ros Webb (Illustrator)

Date Published: March 10, 2022

Publisher: BookBaby


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

When Maybel, the country hound, wanders into Cindy's kitchen, she may just have been looking for food, but instead finds a lifelong friend. The duo finds adventures in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Alongside fellow goats and horses, they munch on crusts of avocado toast by the beach in Santa Monica. It is a story of rescue, friendship, love and learning to stay wild at heart.


 




About the Author

Author of Wild at Heart, a book that grew organically from my experience of living on and owning a rescue farm in Blairsville, Georgia. On the farm we have 40 rescue animals we have taken on over the last 20 years. I also live part time in Los Angeles, where I raised my two now grown and married children, and my new baby grandson. 

Sometimes you feel called to be in connection with something or someone, like a mission. I feel it with my family, with my rescue animals, and I felt it in a special way with Maybel. I spent seven months in Georgia when Covid broke out. That is where the true story of Wild at Heart and Maybel the rescue dog, took place. In the beginning of the pandemic I was considering opening up my farm as a retreat center, particularly for wellness and yoga events. I envisioned it as a place where people could be in relationship with the animals, the gardens, and themselves. But Covid arrived and dashed this fantasy. 

However there was this dog that kept hanging with the animals on my farm. She would be there, then she would be gone. One day, when I was hiking on the property, she started following me up and down the trails. She was sweet, and let me pet her, and given how dirty that left my hands, I knew she lived in the woods. But one day she came down to my house, so I let her in and fed her. That started the slow process of our relationship. She would come and go, but soon she was doing more staying, and I began to get attached. We were bonding and began our wonderful friendship. 

I think I identified with her because I had been a bit of a wild child myself. 

During those early pandemic months she was my constant companion, and I couldn’t imagine leaving her behind when I received the joyful news that my daughter was expecting back in Los Angeles. So I decided to bring her with me, and build a life with her in Santa Monica with my family including my baby grandson Leo. 

The writing of the book happened organically over the course of a year. I had never written a book before and it felt like such a heartfelt story that I needed to share. While researching illustrators I fell in love with the work of Roz Webb, who lives in Copenhagen. We worked together entirely online! What carried me through the process of edits, rewrites, and redesigns was my deep passion for this story, and the belief that children, parents, and grandparents alike could attach and fall in love with it.

Date Published: 05/29/2022

Publisher: Purple Milk Publishing



photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Carly, Maddie, Pilot and Cornelious have been waiting forever for their Seniors Only Cruise. After three years of solving crime in their small town, this trip is the relaxing break from Asbury they need. Dreaming of all the fun and drama-free adventures in store for them, the gang settles in for a calm summer cruise.

Soon after departing, things don’t go quite as planned. With strange, new additions to their itinerary, Asbury’s favorite sleuths detect something is amiss. When violence breaks out, Cornelious turns to the captain who quickly reassures everyone aboard. After all, what reason would the crew have to mess with a group of teenagers? Adding to their troubles is Cornelious’ cousin Dane, whose feelings for Maddie have only grown stronger.

Excited to be away from his father and finally dating Maddie, Cornelious tries to ignore his cousin as his insecurities fester. After a stirring revelation from Dane, Cornelious retreats from his friends and finds solace in the ship’s jolly Captain Dex. At the same time, Carly, Maddie and Pilot begin to suspect the crew, believing there’s more than meets the eye with this cruise. Frustrated by Cornelious’ withdrawal, the gang doubles down on their efforts to discover the crew’s motives. Pulled into a dangerous game of who to trust, the gang is determined to find the truth—and mend their friendship.

With relationships called into question and stunning secrets exposed, the gang faces their biggest obstacle yet—trust. Can Cornelious trust the captain more than his friends? With their peers placing blind trust in the crew, can the gang convince them otherwise, before it’s too late? Or are Pilot, Carly and Maddie just overreacting? With constantly changing itineraries, a scheming crew lurking behind every door, a happy-go-lucky captain refusing to dig deeper, and lifelong relationships put to the test, can the gang rekindle their relationship with each other and figure out what’s really going on?
