BLOG TOUR: "The Beauty of Grace" by Nicole Kichard


CoverPhoto5The Beauty of Grace by Nicole Richard

Series: She’s Beautiful Series – Book 1 Genre: Contemporary Romance Publication Date: November 13, 2015 Pages: 308
At age eighteen, Grace Bowman's life crumbled right in front of her. The man who held her heart—her forever—was gone, and her family ties were in tatters. As a result, she forged a steel wall round her heart and vowed never to let anyone get close again. Now, six years later, she has been given a chance to start fresh in Savannah, Georgia. A chance to leave the struggle of day-to-day life behind, find a career, and give Drew, her five year old son, a shot at normal. A balloon and a flat tire had her crossing paths with AJ Watson, and she realized normal probably wasn’t in her cards. AJ was handsome, thoughtful, and fiercely loyal to his family. Yet, behind his baby-blue eyes and Southern boy charm, he was just as broken as she was. She told herself to stay away from him, and she tried, but the lines between friendship and lover are blurred. When Grace realizes history may be repeating itself, will she be able to let go of the past, or will she walk away from her future?

Chapter One Excerpt I was just about to open my driver’s side door when I turned toward the rumbling of a motorcycle that came to a halt next to me. A black leather jacket covered, chiseled-to-perfection male specimen kicked the kickstand and removed his helmet. My breath hitched at the sight of our grocery checkout friend. A warm pool of heat flowed effortlessly through my veins. What in the world was going on with my traitorous body? I watched his movements as he placed his helmet on the handlebars and swung his leg, lifting himself off his bike. “You need some help there?” he asked blankly and sauntered to the side with the flat. “I do.” I said softly. Closely watching his every move, I should have been tense, on guard—for heaven’s sake this man was technically a stranger—but I felt a sense of safety in his presence. I think he just asked me something, but for the life of me, I had no idea what he said. With a kind voice and a sexy grin, he asked if I had a spare in the trunk. I hoped I did, my car wasn’t that old. Sometimes I missed that damn Mercedes, but with a baby to support that was not a practical choice. So, I traded it in for this Altima and lived off the rest. “I think so.” I popped the trunk. Standing at the open trunk, he searched until he found what he was looking for. Spare tire and jack in hand, he got to work. Ten minutes later, my tire was changed and just in time. It started to drizzle again. Our mystery friend slammed the trunk shut and tapped it twice before looking at me. I felt so out of sorts near this man, and a faint flush warmed my cheeks. “Thank you, Mr. . . ” I realized I didn’t even know his name. Smirking he stuck his hand out. “Name’s Alex, or AJ, as everyone else calls me.” “Well thank you, Mr.—umm, I mean, Alex.” And for the third time that day, I felt the blush in my cheeks. “My pleasure, Miss—” “Oh, I’m sorry. It’s Grace, and thank you again for your help, and the balloon.” Alex nodded like a gentleman. “I’d tell you to have your husband get you a new tire but didn’t see a ring on your finger. So maybe have your boyfriend get that looked at. You don’t want to be driving around on a spare tire for too long.” “Thank you, I’ll let him know.” I knew his angle, and I wasn’t falling for it. Clearly, he was trying to fish around for information about if I had a man in my life. Even though he was a Good Samaritan, I still had some level of skepticism. I smiled, waved, and got in my car, only to sneak a peek through the rearview mirror. Watching Alex straddle his motorcycle and put his helmet on made that instant pool of heat slowly shift south again, and I wondered if I needed to get myself checked out. I couldn’t recall ever being this flustered by the opposite sex before. b06be-blog2btour2bteaser2b1

RELEASE DAY + BOOK REVIEW: "Twisted" by Elizabeth Montgomery

Title: Twisted
Author: Elizabeth Montgomery
Publisher: CHBB Publishing
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba, Mae I Design and Photography
Format: Ebook and Paperback

Who could’ve known one pair of shoes could cause so much trouble.
Dee’s lost the sparkly red heels, and when she befriends a witch to help her find a way home, she finds herself down the rabbit hole. With the veil between Wonderland and Oz torn wide open, things go awry.
The flying monkeys are loose in the Kingdom, Hatter is lost on the sun-colored brick road, and betwixt a battle of the worlds, the Red Queen seeks power, but all Dee wants is to go home.

Elizabeth Montgomery was born in Williamsburg, Va and raised in Yorktown, Va. Growing up in and around the historic triangle spurred her love for the unusual and paranormal. She is a mom to four amazing kids, a wife to an extraordinary husband and a full-time pediatric nurse. When not writing, working or helping with homework you can find Elizabeth with her nose stuck in a book or hovering around her Keurig waiting for that next cup.

I love seeing old stories remade with a new view. Sometimes it doesn't really work, but other times it is a magical thing, equalling or surpassing the original. Ms. Montgomery's story about Dee (AKA Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz) is a brilliant mash-up of Oz and Alice In Wonderland, showing us a mixture of two of the most recognizable and popular fictional lands in literature.
We all know Oz, Wonderland, and the characters, so how did she manage to elevate them to new heights? By not only merging them, but enhancing them with new creatures and characters. Oz has darker secrets in regards to their witches and even Dee's own past and abilities, and Wonderland is much darker, reminding me of the newer films' version of the realm as opposed to the brightened Disney version.
I was entranced from page one, drawn into the story, learning about the lands, and feeling as though I was transported to Oz and Wonderland myself. Not only would L. Frank Baum be proud of this novel, I think he would weep with joy at how wonderfully this book was written.
This is the kind of YA that can be enjoyed by anyone, be they 12 or 72!

5/5--stunning work!

SPOTLIHGT: "Krim Du Shaw" by Talia Haven

Krim was just a colt when the stallions of the Du Shaw herd led him and the mares to the stone building with its tall walls and heavy wooden door. The mares knew what the stallions yearned for, and they knew what would happen if the stallions gave in. But for Krim, it would be much later before he would discover for himself what lies beyond the stone wall.

Krim’s mind was foggy from his passion-induced haze when he heard the final panicked whinny from the filly to her mother.  Somewhere in the woods, a mare whinnied back.  Her repeated anguished cries went unanswered and caused the village dogs to begin barking at all the commotion.  Worried that he might miss some activity in the dark community, Krim turned his attention away from any thoughts he had of chasing off the wolves.  After all, the little filly was dead there was nothing he could do.

 A scavenging dog did his part the next day when he found the bloody white head of the filly.  Dragging it home, he settled himself in the shade to enjoy his feast. However, the young boys of the village made sure he didn't enjoy his meal.

Evil will find a way to walk amongst the Angels, bringing about a catastrophic event that will see Arianwen lose faith in God, causing her to question her place on the side of Good and whether the only way for her and Albion to finally be together, would be for her to give up her Halo and fall into darkness.

PRESS: Long Beach Comic Expo Overview 2/20-21st, 2016

Hello, my faithful readers. Every year, I am blessed enough to be able to attend the Long Beach Comic Expo as press, to take photos, browse wares, attend panels, and interview the esteemed guests.
This year, I unfortunately had to cut my time at the Expo a bit short, as I got ill during the first day. However, I did manage to do quite a bit of cataloging of vendors and exhibitors. This year's Expo was the biggest yet, and the guests they brought in, the vendors from all over the world, were spectacular. Below you will find photos, vendor contact, cosplay, and an exclusive interview with a very prolific comic writer.
Every year, I try to focus on different things. Last year, it was cosplay, the year before it was interviews, and this year I focused more on the vendors. For a lifelong comic book fan like myself, this year's vendors had the best selection of comic books I have ever seen. I will not lie: seeing a mint condition, special edition of the first Deathstroke comic made me freak out just a little. As did the complete collection of Crisis On Infinite Earths in mint condition.
I love this con because it really is for the fans of comics, it hasn't gone "Hollywood" and I don't think it ever will. Sure, they invite some great stars to their events, but these remain about the comics and manga.
Without further ado...

First off is my favorite booth from the Expo/Con: My Faerietale. Unfortunately, she will not be at the upcoming Long Beach Comic Con, but she will be at the expo next year. She sells DIY fandom merch, and every year I go, I always buy something from her. She is very sweet and her products are great, cute, kitschy, and quality made.

Next up is another DIY seller. She sells on Etsy, and her information is pictures below with my Sailor Jupiter tiara. Prices are reasonable, and I personally saw her products (which include taffeta, hand-sewn cosplay costumes that can be ordered in ANY size). She was super sweet, too.

My comics. There were so man sellers, I could not for the life of me keep track of them all. As I mentioned above, this was the mother-lode for comic collectors like myself.

This store is another recurring one at the Expos and Cons, selling vintage lunchboxes and movie memorabilia at wonderful prices. Last year, I got a lot of things for The Hobbit. This year, it was Batman vs Superman. He also sells online and his information is pictured below.

Cosplayers were plenty this year, but the crowds made it a bit difficult to get great shots. Below are the best two that I saw this year. Stunning stuff, for sure.

This year, I was not focusing on interviews, as previously mentioned, but I managed to get another amazing comic book creator to agree to be interviewed for KSR at Long Beach Comic Expo: Jim Palmiotti. It was an honor to be able to interview him, and he was one of the nicest people I have ever met. I do hope he returns again for the Con in September!
Read the interview by clicking HERE.

Learn more about the Long Beach Comic Expo and Con by visiting the following links. I highly recommend this event for those of you who want a large con that still believes in catering to true comic book fans. I might be press, but I can assure you that I am also a fan, and attending this con is usually the highlight of my year.
