Dirty Ties Pam Goodwin Blog Tour

I race to finance it.
I evade to protect it.
I kill to attain it.
I planned everything.

Except her.
The alluring, curvaceous blonde at the finish line.
With sapphire eyes that cheat and lie.
Whose powerful family murdered mine.

I hate her.
I want her.

I know she’s hiding something.
But so am I.

Expected Release Date : January 12th, 2015



New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.

Maer Wilson's Relics Blog Tour

relicsbanner copy

relics 400x600


Most of Thulu and La Fi's clients are dead. Which is perfect since their detective agency caters to the supernatural. But a simple job finding a lost locket leads to a big case tracking relics for an ancient daemon. The daemon needs the relics to keep a dangerous portal closed. His enemy, Gabriel, wants the relics to open the portal and give his people access to a new feeding ground – Earth. Caught on live TV, other portals begin to open and the creatures of magic return to Earth. The people of Earth are not alone, but will soon wish they were. When Gabriel threatens their family, Thulu and La Fi's search becomes personal. The couple will need powerful help in the race to find the relics before Gabriel does. But maybe that's what ghostly friends, magical allies and daemonic clients are for. When the creatures of myth and magic return to Earth, they're nothing like your mother's fairy tales.  


When the dead are afraid, there’s a big problem. The fear cut through the abandoned warehouse as sharp as the dagger at my throat. The tall, powerful being easily held me immobile. Breaking promises and lying to ancient creatures who can make you very dead, very fast was not such a good idea.

Humans and non-humans, living and dead, all of us were cautious not to make any sudden moves that would send my captor over the edge.

I tried to take careful breaths. I was terrified, more afraid than I’d ever been in my life and in shock, too. Betrayal and death will do that to you, let me tell you.

Like a car out of control on ice, my thoughts careened all over the place. I could only hope someone in the group was thinking clearer than me. I kept my eyes down to hide the emotions I knew would upset the others. No sense letting Thulu and the rest know just how freaked out I really was.

All I could tell myself was to breathe easy and try not to swallow. There was nothing but silence for long minutes, as both sides continued to wait. No one moved. Even the dead were frozen with fear. Now there’s a scary thought.
Relics can be found at these retailers:

Toby The Pet Therapy Dog Says To be a Buddy Not a Bully By Charmine Hammond and Illustrations by Rose Ann Prevec

Toby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital FriendsToby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital Friends by Charmaine Hammond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Toby the therapy dog goes to a classroom to teach children about the proper ways to deal with a bully.
This is a wonderful book which teaches children about bullies and the best way of dealing with them. Since they were very little, I have taught my children thee rules of conduct which have stopped many fights before they ever happened. First, ask the person to stop, then walk away from the situation and finally tell a parent what is happening. This book covers these rules with delightful illustrations and easy to fallow narration. I would recommend this to anyone with small children who are attending school or have siblings.

The Wacky World of Wendy White by Barbra Ann Bonilla

The Wacky World of Wendy White! a Whopper of a TaleThe Wacky World of Wendy White! a Whopper of a Tale by Barbara Ann Bonilla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is first and forthmost about food. Then there is an underling story intertwined in about a lonely girl in search of a friend. On her quest, she finds more then she bargains for.
What are my thoughts on this book? To be honest I am not sure. Frankly my head is still spinning. I highly admire the author for keeping all those brand names straight in her head as she wrote it. I had to read it in short burst just to keep it in perspective. The underling story is wonderful however and I would recommend, if you are brave a person to read this book you should read it twice first to recognize the band names then again to fallow the true intended story. That way the good story is not lost under the weight of familiarity. I would recommend this to anyone who cannot help reading the store names while traveling down the street or the brand names while strolling in the grocery store isle.

When I Grow Up I Want To Be...a Firefighter! (When I Grow Up I Want To Be...)When I Grow Up I Want To Be...a Firefighter! by Wigu Publishing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Will is afraid of Fire Fighters and fire so when his teacher says their next field trip is to a fire station he is devastated. When he gets there however he learns a few things about himself and Firefighters. First of all, it is okay to be afraid of fire it is a dangerous force that can hurt you. Firefighters on the other hand are just people who wear protective clothing and just look scary on the outside but are there to help you.
This book is really about courage and understanding it is a great way to learn about Fire Fighters and how they are here to help you when there is an emergency. Plus the illustrations overlaid on top of real pictures really added to the enjoyment of the story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Learning a new skill is hard especially for Eric who despite his best efforts can't seem to get the hang of ice-skating. With a little help from Gramps the Zamboni Driver and a little imagination, Eric finds the will to try. A Shadow under the ice turns out to be a wonderful creature which helps the boy not to be scared and learn the skills needed to accomplish his goal by turning it in to a game.
The illustrations were wonderful and the story was delightful. This book would, appeal to any child who is struggling to learn something new because with a little help from their own imaginary Ziggersnout they can accomplish anything.

T-Bone the Flying Horse by Janice Virant

T-Bone the Flying HorseT-Bone the Flying Horse by Janice Virant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A lonely washed out race horse sits alone in his stall until a little girl adopts him and he becomes more then they both ever thought possible. This book is all about the powerful force of love and how it can make extraordinary things happen. This story may appeal to any girl who is a dreamer or longs to have a horse of her own. The illustrations are colorful and well drawn and they fit well with the story.
