It's been quite an eventful week and can you believe that September is officially coming to an end? Seriously, where does the time go? But I hope you all had a productive and pleasant week and month. I'm actually very excited about the upcoming month. October is always full of some of the most interesting celebrations, festivals and most importantly....IT'S FALL! Hurray! I love the fall. *sigh*
But for this week's #BNFF I have three very cool writer pals to introduce to you. So please give a big round of applause for these lovely ladies.
Today's first #BNFF is contemporary romance author Erin Kern. Erin lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth with her husband and two children, where she fills her days playing with her kids, cooking, and finding all sort of things to do to keep this stay-at-home mom busy. Her book, HERE COMES TROUBLE is the second book of the McDermott Brother Series, which was released September 2011 and is now available at Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes and Noble.
"Here Comes Trouble"
"Lacy Taylor didn't exactly have a fairytale childhood. After being abandoned by both her parents and raised by her grandfather, she learned to take care of herself at a young age. Fiercely independent, Lacy finds herself back in Trouble, Wyoming working to pay the mortgage on the home her grandfather left her. Though she isn't pleased to be back in the town that triggers memories from her complicated past, Lacy decides to make the best of her situation until she learns her father has been released from jail and she’s not able to make the payments on the house in time. What's a girl to do?For more information on Erin you can visit her blog, facebook, or follow her on twitter (@erinkern04).
Chase McDermott hadn't thought about Lacy Taylor in years. When he last knew her, she was nothing more than a lanky teenager who was glued to his dorky younger brother’s side. Years later, she’s standing in front of him—grown up and he must admit hot--asking for a waitress position at his restaurant. Even though she doesn’t have previous experience, he offers her a shot and right away her sexy confidence and strong convictions begin to spark something unexpected in him. But when money starts to go missing, the pressure is on Chase to figure out which employee has the greatest motive.
While Chase and Lacy’s attraction continues to escalate, her personal problems are on the rise when her half-sister comes into her life forcing her to deal with the mother that let her down. Lacy and Chase’s relationship culminates in a windfall that neither of them ever fathomed and challenges Lacy to learn what it means to trust someone. Chase will have to push aside his stubborn, unemotional side if there’s any chance they can reconcile their steamy affair into a real future. Can they get past all the roadblocks or will they fall prey to their own troubles?"
This next young lady is definitely a force to be reckoned with...but mostly she's just wicked cool. Kendare Blake is a YA fiction author and also a writer of short fiction. Her book ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD is her latest YA novel to be released and is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
I LOVE this book cover. Wow!
"Anna Dressed In Blood"
"Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.For more about Kendare and her books you can visit her on her website, facebook, or find her tweeting around on twitter (@kendareblake).
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
And she, for whatever reason, spares his life."
And lastly we have the beautiful Kiki Hamilton, with her debuting novel THE FAERIE RING released September 27th, 2011! That's right folks, its fresh and HOT off the press. The first book of her THE FAERIE RING Series has already received stellar reviews and lucky for us there is more where this came from. THE FAERIE RING is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and you can click HERE for more links on her website.
"The Faerie Ring"
"The year is 1871, and Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night, Tiki steals a ring, and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out war with the Fey. For the ring belongs to Queen Victoria, and it binds the rulers of England and the realm of Faerie to peace. With the ring missing, a rebel group of faeries hopes to break the treaty with dark magic and blood—Tiki’s blood.If you want to know more about Kiki please visit her at her blog and facebook. Or you can also follow her on twitter (@kikihamilton)! You can also visit THE FAERIE RING Series website for more information about this engrossing story.
Unbeknownst to Tiki, she is being watched—and protected—by Rieker, a fellow thief who suspects she is involved in the disappearance of the ring. Rieker has secrets of his own, and Tiki is not all that she appears to be. Her very existence haunts Prince Leopold, the Queen’s son, who is driven to know more about the mysterious mark that encircles her wrist.
Prince, pauper, and thief—all must work together to secure the treaty…"
