New Release: The Full Moon Rises by Courtney Rene

Image
I'm very excited to share that, the sequel to A Howl in the Night by Courtney Rene, The Full Moon Rises is here!

Life as a shape shifter is not as easy as it would seem, especially not for Abigail Staton. Being a teenager and a shape shifter is even harder, not to mention being one of the last remaining females in the two competing wolf clans and the only girl in her new schools. Striving to find where she belongs, gets sidelined when an old threat to the wolves resurfaces. The clans are forced to come together in a semi-truce, and the already dominant males become even more controlling in trying to protect their own as well as their secret. Abby finds herself in the middle yet again, but this time, she will need both clans in order to survive.



I'm happy to host Courtney and learn more about her new book:

1. What was the spark or initial idea that started your book? 
I started out writing horror stories.  It has always been one of my favorite genre’s.  But somewhere along the w…

Spotlight & #Giveaway: The Darkness Within by Kelly Hashway

Synopsis:

After dying of cancer at seventeen and being brought back to life by an evil witch who turned her into a monster, Samantha Thompson thinks she's finally gotten past all the tragedy in her life. Now she's part of a coven of good witches who are helping her and her boyfriend, Ethan Anderson, learn to use the powers they received from other witches. Aside from the fact that Sam and Ethan are still in hiding from their old lives--the ones they had before Sam was brought back to life--things couldn't be better. Sam and Ethan are inseparable. What could go wrong?

Magic.

Ethan's magic came from a witch who'd turned as evil as possible, and though his coven thought he'd be fine, the more he uses his magic, the stranger he starts acting. The magic inside him is changing who he is. One minute he's Sam's sweet, perfect Ethan and the next, he's a complete stranger. Even with all her witchy power, Sam is helpless against the magic corrupting Ethan. …

10 Reasons Why The Bourne Legacy is Awesome!

Image
Beware there are going to plenty of spoilers in this post if you haven't seen The Bourne Legacy yet.

1. This guy right here! Jeremy Renner. I was one of those who was livid when I heard they were continuing the series without Matt Damon. But I quickly changed my opinion once I saw Jeremy Renner in action as Aaron Cross.


2. And this gal! Rachel Weisz. She is always awesome whenever she joins an action movie. I was immediately hooked as soon as Dr. Marta Shearing came on screen. Rachel plays smart so well (probably because she is super smart :-)). The first thing I loved about Marta was her intelligence, then we see her kindness to both the subjects of the tests and her coworkers, and then we get to see her in action.


3. The shooting at the lab! This scene was incredibly intense. And my first thought was, all those other workplace shootings, what if one of them had been a clean-up from a government? And that's what good movies do they take from the real world, show the horror of so…
