Bond of Love Blog Tour

http://www.promotionalbooktours.com/2013/11/bond-of-love-blog-tour/"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-4204" title="BondofLoveBanner" src="http://www.promotionalbooktours.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/BondofLoveBanner.png" alt="" width="632" height="442" />

http://www.promotionalbooktours.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/bondoflovecover.jpg">http://www.promotionalbooktours.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/bondoflovecover-201x300.jpg" alt="" width="201" height="300" />As a picturesque mother and wife, forty-one year old Avery Richards seems to have it all. Married to a successful veterinarian named Noah and mother to a spunky daughter named Kara, her life is far from awful but she is stuck. With the recent move of their daughter, who has just flown the coop for college, this story examines the deep and often-tumultuous bond between mother and child and the lengths we are willing to go to, as mothers, to sacrifice our own happiness for the ones we love.

As we watch Avery walk through her ‘new’ way of daily life, without her ambitious and stubborn child around to mother any longer, we are given a very unique opportunity to tip toe in the front row of their lives, from three very separate views. We will see life as it plays out through her mature and motherly eyes, through Kara’s young and sheltered heart, and then through ‘someone else’s eyes’ that has a vested interest in them both.

As Avery’s well-hidden web of lies come crashing down in an unexpected way, her secrets that she’s safeguarded for years will threaten to rip her peaceful world apart, as well as the world of the ones she loves most. As readers, we will watch how ONE single choice can alter everything. Each character will then be forced to examine what the true meaning of love and forgiveness means to them.

Every gamut of emotion will be explored: humor, sadness, love, joy, betrayal, hate, and forgiveness. Bond of Love will leave you pondering the age-old question: How well do YOU actually know the ones you love most?

All for Hope Winter Tour

All for Hope by Olivia Hardin Last Chance $0.99
All of Hope To protect her heart, he left her behind. To protect her life, he’ll leave the life he’s made behind. Sometimes the safest distance between two hearts is no distance at all… Kidnapping a baby wasn’t something Hope ever dreamed she would do. But she’s been burned by the legal system before, so when the court places her friend’s child into the custody of an abuser, she takes matters into her own hands. She steals the baby and fakes her death, hoping to make a clean getaway. She planned every detail, except one.

But being on the run together sparks the old flames that once burned between Brennan and Hope. Families, friends, and lovers must band together to save an innocent baby and a daring woman or both of their lives will be destroyed. Together, they’ll do it All for Hope…


 About the Author – Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.

Excerpt Inn on the Edge by Gail Bridges


Is a Picture Really Worth a Thousand Words?
I can’t remember when I first heard this saying, but it was a long time ago. It may have been in high school during an Honors English class. Or perhaps earlier, in sixth grade, in that weird-but-wonderful class taught by the world’s coolest art teacher, Mrs. Rainbow. Maybe I first heard someone say it on TV, or maybe it came from my Mother who adored pithy sayings, or – who knows? – it could even have been some daffy cartoon character on a long-ago Saturday morning. If so, the saying went in one ear and out the other because the character had a ridiculous quacking voice and, besides, who really listens to cartoons?
Whatever the circumstances, I’m sure I believed the words. It’s a no-brainer, right? A picture is worth a thousand words. Simple. Everybody knows it.
But I’m not so sure.
To me, the saying hints that images are better than words. According to Wikipedia, the first instance in print was arguably an advertisement for Auto Supplies in Piqua, Ohio, in 1913. Many more usages of the saying soon followed, and I imagine it didn’t take long for it to enter the common lexicon. To the detriment of language.
Words deserve their due, I say.
I don’t hate pictures. Not at all! As an artist, how could I hate pictures? I’ve worked in many artistic media: I’ve painted (my Fine Arts degree is in oil painting), I’ve worked in metals, in ceramics, in photography. I’m also a musician. And I’m a published author.
As a writer, I use words as though they were paints. Nouns and verbs are manipulated on the page as if they were Cobalt Blue or Alizarin Crimson on stretched canvas. Paragraphs and dialogue, as if they were perspective and composition. Story arcs, as if they were negative space. I’ve come to understand that writing and painting are so very similar: which word do I use – “stalk”, “reed”, or “spear” – to describe a blade of ocean grass? Which color do I use – Viridian Green, Hooker Green, or Phthalo Green – to visually render the same foliage?
Is one way of portraying the world better than the other? I think not.
Words paint a picture for the reader, right? Then why not let them do what they do best? Getting lost in a book and using my imagination to create my own mental picture of the action, the setting, the characters – all of it! – is what I most love about reading. Curling up on a cushy couch on a rainy day, picturing the bleached hot landscape of a favorite book … it’s sublime. Think about it: a reader is actually treated to two art forms in one!
And no two readers experience it the same way.
If I, as a writer, can prompt my readers to imagine scenes they’ve never seen, I’ve accomplished what I set out to do. Creating a world in a stranger’s mind is…something beautiful …something to be proud of. Someday, I may take a vacation from writing. I may drag out my paint tubes and crusty brushes and wrinkled canvases. Most likely, I will enjoy every moment of putting color to work, and will be thrilled to be creating visual artwork again. But don’t be fooled: never again will I believe that painting is better than writing.

Review Good Intentions by D N Simmons

Book Description

 September 14, 2013
SciTech Labs was handsomely commissioned by the United States Military to design a revolutionary serum that would create the ultimate soldier. If successful, the soldier would have an increase in endurance, strength, awareness and overall speed. They would become the true super soldier. That's if everything went according to plan.
SciTech put its best scientists on the project and gave them a time limit to complete the job or else. With the pressure on and the stakes high, Vincent Masterson and his team put everything they had into the project. Everything was looking hopeful until an experiment went horribly wrong. The scientists mutated their specimen's DNA, turning it into something monstrous. Now, life as we know it will never be the same.
As it stands, the only thing that can save the human race is one of the two things they should be running from.

Can the human race survive being caught in a bloody war between two vicious predators?

Mix of horror, terror and action in this book. How does creating Super soldiers go into a  Zombie Apocalypse, when it goes all wrong and Zombies are born.  Super strong and fast Zombies. Many people die because of this experiment. A few people get into hiding to create an anti serum before the Zombies take over all States. I could see it all before me, it pulls you right in. And if this all wasn't enough Vampires appear. I love how it is written. Walking dead fans like I will love this! I can not wait for the next book!
