RELEASE day – Behind the Computer by FL Jacob

RELEASE DAY
BARNES & NOBLE: Coming Soon!
SYNOPSIS:

I’m Sawyer James, best-selling indie author.  There have been so many rumors going around about my model, Caleb Allen, and I that I can’t see straight.  So, instead of sitting back on my hands like I’m told I need to do, let it blow over, and kill everyone with kindness, I’m going to do what I do best, I’m going to write a book about our relationship. 
So here it is, our story.  The real story.
Now if you have anything to talk about, you can shove it because this is the truth. 
This is the story from behind the computer.


TEASER:
I straighten up and look at him; he’s come from the party. He has on a black suit with a crisp white shirt and ironically a green tie. 


“We match.” I try to smile.

He wipes the tears away from under my eyes and holds my face in his hands. “I picked it to match your eyes. I was hoping you would be there.”

“I’ve missed you,” I admit feeling relieved he hasn’t completely given up on me. 

“You have no idea how much I’ve missed you.” He wipes a few more stray tears. I laugh a little, and he smiles. “There’s that smile I love so much. I was watching you all day. You didn’t look at me once.”

“It was so hard.”

“That’s what she said.” He winks, and I let out a real laugh this time.





I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full-time employee. Life is crazy and busy! I started writing again during a darker time in my life in a group write in a Facebook group. They brought back my passion for writing that I haven’t felt since high school and helped me through hard times. 

Starting this process was tedious and nerve-wracking, but my amazing ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.

 


 

My current books are Have I Told You, I Won’t Give Up on You, A Very Merry Black Hollywood Christmas, and Give Me All of You, all part of the Black Hollywood Series.  

Behind the Computer is a new standalone that is not part of the BH series.  It’s a step outside of my comfort zone, but the story hit me like a ton of bricks so I went with it. 

 


 

Coming 2016, One in a Million. New Characters, New story, Standalone! More information coming soon.

Gigi Aceves Author Pic

After growing up in the Philippines, I now live in California with my husband and two girls. My husband survived two bouts of cancer, AML Leukemia and Mucoid Carcinoma; hence, the inspiration for Unbreakable. I thank the good Lord for healing my husband, twice. It can’t get any better than that.

Our oldest, Andrea is a junior in APU. When she looks at my computer, the first thing out of her mouth is “Mom! What are you looking at? Dad!” Our youngest, Allysa is a freshman in high school. The few times she passed by me and looked over my shoulder when I was writing, her reaction was, “Mom! I’m telling dad!” There you have it; I have two double agents in my house. What happened to loyalty?

If my husband is the ying to my yang, Andrea is the Marlin to my Dory while Allysa is the Buzz Lightyear to my Woody. I love the beach, but I hate the sand; I love to travel, but I hate to fly; I love to eat but, I hate gaining weight (all women can relate to this); and so goes my little quirks in life.

Am I crazy? Well, the jury is still out on that one; however, I’d like to think if I can make one person smile with my craziness, it’s all worth it.

Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie…
Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.
Yet, hours after we said “I do,” I lost him.
Forever…
The dreams we’d shared, the future we’d planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds.
And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.
So, I guess it’s quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door.
He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…
He was the best man…

AUTHOR BIO
I started writing at a very young age, mostly as an escape from the real world. It is something I have done on and off throughout my life, but never went so far as to actually try and get published. 
I started my latest story, My Life As I Knew It, around 3 years ago. I was on a roll with it until I allowed life to get in the way. I am now officially picking up where I left off. It is the first book of a series on which I’m working.
I came up with the premise for this story while undergoing some pretty harsh challenges in my personal life. As mentioned before, I always liked writing as a means of escape. While going through these particularly tough times, I had a moment when I thought about what it would be like to go back in time and do certain things differently…which I’m sure almost everyone has thought about from time to time. I sat in front of my keyboard one morning, thought about what I would do if I had that chance and went from there.

Reveal – Teresa Michaels – Conflict of Interest

Conflict of Interest
by Teresa Michaels
Cover Designer: Mayhem Cover Creations

Synopsis

Ambitious and insightful, Gabby DiVergilio only has one thing standing in the way of her climbing the corporate ladder: her new business partner, Lucas McCarthy. He’s arrogant and dismissive, driving her mad with his sexy Irish accent in every possible way.

Recently promoted to the executive ranks, Lucas must prove that he’s the right man for the job. He never expected that the HR professional he’d be forced to work with on a daily basis would be gorgeous, challenging and smart as hell. He’s not the type to accept help from anyone, especially not a bubbly, policy-enforcer that he’d rather bend over his desk. Never one to lose focus, Lucas avoids Gabby at all costs until circumventing her becomes career suicide.

Fraternizing in the workplace is strictly prohibited and neither one of them are willing to break the rules. But with their undeniable chemistry about to ignite, Lucas and Gabby must decide which consequence is worse – combusting from sexual frustration or violating company policy.

Meet the Author

Teresa Michaels lives in the New England area with her husband and children.  Curveball is her debut novel.

Review – Ember Skies by Nicky Crawford.

91demWeyKtL._SL500_SY400_

Ember skies by Nicky Crawford.

Ember is married to an abusive man names Austin. As well as physical abuse, Austin is mentally and emotionally abusive . Ember knows she needs to get away but one thing stops her, their beautiful 3 year old daughter Harlee. Austin is a military man and has a lot of influence and power. Ember is a nurse who works all hours but is expected to be the perfect host to parties that Austin holds.
When Dalton Bates transfers to Austins unit, he’s invited to Austins cookout and meets Ember. They share an instant spark. Seeing the black eyes and bruises, Dalton wants to protect Ember and rid her of pain.

FB_IMG_1445788936099
When tragedy strikes, Embers heart is even more fragile. Can Dalton and Ember find the strength to pull them through these hard times? Will Austin let her go ? Or will he have her at all costs?

I absolutely loved this book by Nicky Crawford. The story pulls you in from the first few pages and doesn’t let you go until the book finishes. I found it hard to put the book down and read at every opportunity I had.
Dalton is a knight in shining armour and every girls dream. The story is highly emotional and Nicky has a way of making you feel Embers emotions. I was angry, tearful and even laughed at points in the book. I was sad when the story ended. Although the story is about an abusive relationship there is much positivity and a love that will conquer all. Dalton is a hero and never gives up fighting for Ember even when times get extremely tough. I would love a Dalton of my own ha ha.

FB_IMG_1445788955515

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read another of Nicky Crawfords books.
5/5 stars

~ A Best of Friends Series: Book One. By J A Heron

They say, ‘opposites attract’.
Some would disagree, but these four women couldn’t be more different if they tried.
These best friends have different lives, different aspirations and different outlooks on life and the way it should be.
However, they do share a few common denominators – they all work together. Every day, they earn their living by working in a hair and beauty salon, where fun is the top style of the day.
They also live in the same little village; quiet, peaceful and where not a lot happens.
They’re all feisty and love each other fiercely.

Clarissa
This lady is sweet, kind and extremely loving. At thirty-nine years old, she is still looking for love and hopes to find the love of her life and have children before it’s too late. She’s the salon owner, a business woman and everyone adores her.

Brenda
A feisty and fun loving forty-three year old. The oldest of the group is married to her soul mate and has three children. She’s not one for mincing her words or holding back on her opinions.

Carla
At twenty-seven, this lady is known as the serial man-eater. Her lifestyle frustrates the rest of the group, but they love her even though she spends her weekends with a different man in her bed. She believes in sex without strings or commitment.

Davina
The baby of the group. This nineteen year old is a little ditzy, crazy and loves easily. She has a way of making the rest of the group laugh without even trying. Her comments and attitude towards life are innocent and admirable.

Follow these ladies through a journey that’s packed with fun, happiness and heartache. This story will leave you smiling, feeling happy and grateful for the life you have. GirlsQuad is coming for you, and you will be able to relate to at least one of these characters, if not all of them. Everyone has a friend like Clarissa, Brenda, Carla or Davina.
What is the most important thing in life? The answer is friendship.

SYNOPSIS

Sequel to: ST. BLAIR: CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT

Twenty-four hours earlier the world was a pristine, productive, demon-free society and Sybille Malone an unknown Region One Fabric Counsel designer.

Global Good’s curator and guardian of banished relics warehoused in the Arctic Region, Eston Cote, needs to act fast. As Global Good’s North Quad leader, he must prepare his colleagues in the other three Quadrants of the world for something they have never known… warfare.

Celestial warfare. A fight for souls.

Divinely foreseen and journaled by 21st century teenager St. Blair, Sybille’s only hope of reining in the evil she unleashed on September 14, 2202, is to follow the directives of Blair and the saints before the demonic possessions outnumber the innocents.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

EW Skinner

Emily had a goal when she was 15, she would have a daughter named Marquel and write a novel titled “Marquel.” She accomplished both and more.

Emily was a protege of the late master of the pulps or paperback originals, Harry Whittington. Emily interviewed Whittington during her days as a feature writer for the Clearwater Sun daily newspaper and its weekly division. They became friends and he taught her how to plot and gave her approval of the original outline and sample chapter for “Marquel” shortly before he died in 1989.

After Whittington passed away, Emily challenged herself to write as her mentor did and wrote a chapter a day and finished the novel “Marquel” in 52 days. For more details on the novel’s history read: http://www.thefilmmom.blogspot.com/2012/10/why-book-trailer-now.html

Fast forward, a second daughter, Blair is born and Emily and husband Tom focus on raising their family. Both daughters are now grown and work in Hollywood. So this might be an example of art imitating life or the reverse?

A devoted Catholic, Emily is rekindling her love for writing and has just completed the movie script for “Marquel” and a young adult paranormal appropriately named after her youngest child, “St. Blair: Children of the Night.”

When Emily isn’t working as a marketing consultant or writing, she enjoys antiquing/thrifting and producing short films. Emily is the proud Executive Producer of Blair Skinner’s film “Relative Eternity,” a 2012 LA Shorts Film Festival selection, Sunscreen Film Festival selection and Short Film Corner Festival de Cannes selection. Written, directed and edited by Blair Skinner, “Relative Eternity” is on snagfilms.com for your viewing pleasure.
