BOOK TOUR – Evidence is Lacking. Yet I Still Hope. by Joan Enders @deweydame1

 

Joshua Henry Bates, a young teacher of a country school, wonders if there will be more to his life. Yes, there are summers away from the farm, attending the University of Utah, dancing at Saltair, watching pictures shows, and eating ice cream on bone dry days. In his journal he questions his future. He finds a young woman to love, but she is an ever-mutating mystery. His job seems to be a dead-end. His parents need his help more all the time. Josh tries to change his life: cooling the relationship with his girlfriend, teaching in a new school, and registering for service in the American Expeditionary Forces. Still, Joshua is filled with self-doubt. Will Josh marry the girl? Will he find a dazzling life mission? Will he be victorious in war? Each chapter contains one to thirty primary sources from the life of this young man drafted as a doughboy in the Meuse-Argonne Campaign.
 Praise for the book:

If you have ever searched for your own history, or a way to bring history to life, this book is a masterpiece.”

Kelly Milner Halls, author of Saving the Baghdad Zoo

was a recipient of the American Library Association’s Frances Henne Award for library leadership. 
 
She loved her jobs, often to distraction. Once Joan stayed so late at the school library that the custodians waxed the floors, unaware
that she was still upstairs. She crept out the least sticky exit. Joan now teaches librarians on webinars. When not teaching she administers the local Family History Center for FamilySearch International. She enjoys peeling back the research onion for students and adults. That was the motivation for her first book, which replicates her most popular inquiry lesson for U.S. History students and teachers.

COVER REVEAL – SOUL MIRRORS by Wiley A Haydon III

 

My love of storytelling traces back to my step-mother, who spun wonderful fantasy stories when I was child. I finished my first novel at sixteen. That first attempt was terrible, but taught me quite a bit about story construction. Though I would start numerous other projects in the following years, I wouldn’t actually complete another book for another 21 years. 

I wasn’t idle in that time, though. I earned a degree in engineering, married the love of my life, worked as a semi- truck driver crisscrossing the country, moved from Texas to North Dakota and then came back home. 
It’s been a fun and interesting journey. I really enjoy engineering, but writing was my first passion, and I’m excited to share it with you.
I currently live in West Texas with my wife and our two adorable (but weird) cats.

“No one knows how human genetics evolved to create Mirrors. No one knows how the evidence of a criminal’s last horrendous act can be confirmed in a single gaze of a child’s silvered eyes. But just because science can’t explain something doesn’t mean it can’t be used, and this gift is simply too valuable to ignore. Twins Thomas and Ashley Ross have grown up knowing they would be used as Mirrors for the “good” of humanity. When their powers mature at age twelve, they are taken weekly to fulfill their role. By reliving the most heinous crimes from a perpetrators’ perspective, they alone can assure that no innocent people will be executed, and that the worst offenders are not set free due to lack of evidence.

Justice is not without cost, however. Taking on the memories of others is a destructive process, one that quickly consumes the children involved until most take their own lives. As despair threatens to drown Thomas and Ashley, a distant hope keeps them from succumbing: If they can make it to their eighteenth birthday, their contract with the government will be fulfilled. Changing views on the morality of their role threatens to tear them apart, but the twins struggle to cling to each other and try to construct a fragile life above the weekly flood of horrors. 

As their work takes it toll, however, a new question emerges: does survival even matter when you’re already broken beyond repair?”

HALLOWEEN MONSTER MASH COUNTDOWN BLITZ, DAY 10 – KAT by Ren Garcia

Lord Belmont’s life ended in Clovis, in the impenetrable darkness beneath the ground where forbidden rites were once held. Lady Gwendolyn was his love, body and soul, and the Demon in Blue Light killed her.

Every year, on the anniversary of Gwen’s death, he returned to Clovis to stand in the cold desolation, hearing the wind moan through the lonely passes, feeling her loss all over again.

On this anniversary, he wasn’t alone in Clovis. He heard the noises rustling in the brush. He smelled the raw river of Shadow tech. Then he saw it:

The claws …
The flicking tail …
The maniacal, glittering eyes fixed on him …
“I’ve been waiting for you,” it said in a grating voice as it attacked.

* * * * *

Far away, across the cosmos in a city of wondrous crystal towers, two people watch in horror as the desperate scene at Clovis unfolds. They had worked so hard, sacrificed so much, even argued for it before the gods. They convinced the gods they were right, that they knew best, and everything would go well.

But, things weren’t going well at Clovis.

If this situation went poorly, then ages worth of work would be lost, and, just possibly, the universe might come to an end.

Q&A With The Author:
When did you start writing, and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become an author?
I always wanted to be a writer but life got in the way. After a near drowning in 2001, I decided to get to it. The inspiration for Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story came a few months later and I managed to write a complete novel.
 
Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us anything about it?
My current work-in-progress is Christmas at Blue Hydrangeas. It’s a prequel to Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story, and takes place in 1978 during a blizzard on Christmas Eve. The classic movie “The Homecoming,” which spawned one of my all-time favorite TV series, “The Waltons”, inspired it. I started it during the week between Christmas and New Years’, and am close to the finish. My plan is to release it for this Christmas.
 
What is your favorite writing snack?
Jelly Bellies
 
If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose? Why? What food would you serve?
I’d love to have dinner with Aerin and her mom Devon from Swim Season. I’d serve lasagna, with meatballs and sausages, garlic bread, and a tossed salad.
 
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I learned many things, most important of which is that writing a book is a long, arduous process that requires commitment, focus, and sacrifice.
 
How do you relax, or what do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?
I read, or watch movies. I also like to spend time at the ocean, although I live hundreds of miles away.
 
What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?
I dream of being a famous writer, so I write.
 
What do you fear most?
Pain. I live with chronic pain. It wants to rule my life. It’s a daily battle. I sometimes win.
 
What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book some day?
Don’t give up. Don’t listen to those who say you can’t do it, or it’s not good enough, or you’re not good enough. Persevere. Continue. Finish the book. Then find others who can offer real help.

“Five brand-new sweet Western novellas by five of your favorite authors!

Mail Order Miller by Kirsten Osbourne

No one wants to employ Doris Miller, and no man is interested in her. Traveling two-thousand miles across country to marry a stranger may seem strange to some, but it’s the answer to her troubles.

Harvey Butler’s children are the scourge of the town of Salmon, Oregon. When one of the women of the town insists he needs a bride, he’s certain he could never find someone willing to marry him. When he receives a response from Doris Miller, he’s convinced it will be a marriage of convenience, and they will simply coexist. Will Doris be able to change his mind about his future?

 

The Risk and the Reward by Amelia C. Adams

Grant Douglas is enjoying his life as an American businessman, all the while knowing that he’ll eventually return to England to run the family estate. Circumstances force his hand early and he must drop everything to set things to rights–one of those things being the stewardship of a lovely young ladies’ maid who finds herself without a home.

Two very different worlds collide . . . two hearts must decide what it is they most want.

 

Emmeline: Bride of Arkansas by Carra Copelin

Emmeline Weidner was left at the altar by her intended. Seeking to heal her bruised feminine ego, she moves in with her sister.

In His Thoughts by Peggy L. Henderson

Assigned to a position in the newly formed Yellowstone National Park, life seems like it couldn’t get any better for Ben Ferguson. But patrolling for poachers is fraught with danger, and he soon finds his future looking bleak. Images of a blue-eyed guardian angel are the only thing he has to pull him from the edge of death.

Crazy. Worthless. Demon-possessed. Clara Youngblood has been labeled many things by people who cannot understand the challenges she must confront every day within her own mind. When all seems dark, a glimmer of hope appears in the form of a retired soldier.

Ben and Clara wouldn’t have chosen the circumstances that brought them together, but they soon discover their importance in rescuing each other.

 

The High Stakes Bride by Margery Scott

Chloe Taggart has one goal—to leave Rocky Ridge as soon as possible and see the world. She has no intention of ever being under a man’s thumb, and she has no desire to spend her life cooking and cleaning when she could be sailing the Pacific or touring ancient Greek ruins.

Even though Austin Hayward is content with his life on his ranch, it would be perfect if he had a wife to share it with. Unfortunately, there is only one woman he’s interested in marrying—Chloe Taggart. Chloe and Austin have known each other for years, but she’s never looked at him as anything more than a friend.

When Chloe’s father loses his diner to Austin in a poker game, Austin makes her a proposition—her father will get his diner back, and Austin will get Chloe.”

The High Stakes Bride

by Margery Scott

Snippet:

Hopefully, one day he’d be able to kiss her the way he dreamed of and she’d respond the same way. For now, he’d have to be gentle and patient.

He spoke quietly, hoping his voice was soft enough that the pastor wouldn’t be able to hear him. “It’s not fatal, or if it is, I’m doing it wrong.”

He smiled at her. She nodded a moment before he lowered his head to hers. He grazed her lips softly, barely touching them, but it was enough to make him almost groan with the intensity of his desire for her.

He forced himself to pull away before he scared her. As it was, when he met her gaze, she was looking at him with a dazed expression on her face, as if she’d never seen him before. It was disconcerting, to say the least.

Book Blitz – HUMAN CONNECTION by Arthor F. Coombs III

Sixth U.S. president John Quincy Adams, a man who knew a lot about effective leadership, maintained that the most successful people were those whose actions inspired others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. These people were the ones who left the sidelines, entered the fray, and threw themselves into life. They were the ones who forged a nation and achieved the impossible. They were the ones who truly connected to life, to others, and to themselves. 
 
Today, the world needs human connection more than ever. It needs people who strive for deeper relationships, not just surface recognition, who come at life with the enthusiasm, energy, and excitement that bind people together. These people have a powerful impact on all around them. 

Leadership guru Art Coombs combines fresh perspectives, profound experience, engaging information, and unforgettable stories into a simple formula that will result in rich connections as you live, laugh, learn, love, and lead those who mean the most to you. Begin today to live the authentic, abundant life you were meant to as you build and shape the connections that change everything.
