Two years ago, Kaela Peters nearly killed her fiancĂ© by ripping his throat out. Once she gained control over her vampire urges, she hoped to rekindle their love, only to find him on one knee again—now with her best friend. She can’t blame them for their betrayal, though. They’ve been compelled to forget that she even existed. But she can’t forget them, so when she receives an unexpected job offer far away in the Colorado mountains, she seizes the opportunity to escape her past and the painful memories. 
 If only she’d known she was running right into her true past and memories that cut even deeper. 
 Her real name isn’t Kaela Peters, Havenwood Falls and her new job are not what they seem on the surface, and the love of her life isn’t the ex in Atlanta. As she starts piecing together the fragmented memories of her past and her moroi heritage, the passion of old love reignites. Until she discovers that the triggering of her vampire gene may have been foul play with dire consequences—and Xandru Roca, the epic love she’d left behind, has something to do with it all.

Betrayed by love, Sherry Grimes flees the city, seeking solace in an unfamiliar place that calls to her from deep in the mountains. But her search for comfort goes awry when she’s chased by a wolf through the forest, falls, and blacks out. She awakens in a strange room with a mysterious and forbidding—yet undeniably sexy—man by her side. So much for finding solitude. But despite the craziness that brings her to the small eccentric town, she discovers herself drawn into the magic that is Havenwood Falls. 
 Russell Higgins had long ago given up the idea of finding the one he could trust his secrets to—until he met Sherry. One look at the feisty woman with a broken heart has him defying his pack and rethinking his own ideas of his perfect mate. What he can’t deny is the wolf inside, claiming the human as his. 
 Bradley Monahan wants Sherry back, and he would do anything to make that happen. Even fight the mysteries of a town that doesn’t forgive transgressions. 
 While love may heal old wounds, it’s the fresh ones that Sherry must overcome to find her way back home. Wherever that may be.

Aster McCabe couldn’t be happier with her job managing Coffee Haven and baking blueberry scones the whole town raves about, especially her sweet and sexy boyfriend Patrick. She loves her simple, small-town life in Havenwood Falls. At least, until her sister suddenly shows up with trouble not far behind. 
 The sisters’ relationship has always been volatile, especially with the pressure of being the Alpha’s daughters and the expectation to be perfect. Reeve never failed in that department, and Aster grew up in the shadows of her sister’s success. But when Reeve left for college, Aster blossomed. So she’s dealt a painful blow the moment her sister walks in the door and meets Patrick—a mountain lion’s call to its mate couldn’t be any more obvious. Neither can it be controlled or refused. 
 When an unstable Alpha from another den claims Reeve as his mate, Aster, bitter over the recent betrayal, practically draws the guy a map to Reeve’s location, unknowingly putting her entire family and den in danger. Aster must figure out how to right her wrong and save her family. But loyalty and love are further tested when a stranger appears with the potential to forever change Aster’s fate.

Summer vacation was never supposed to be like this. 

It was bad enough Naomi had to be shipped off to her dad's home for the summer and deal with her half-brother Gavin, but when the siblings are forced to spend their break with their great-grandmother in upstate New York, everything changes. An investigation into the strange disappearance of their great-grandfather forces them to retrace his footsteps. They discover a gateway between worlds and encounter extraordinary creatures in a land where the people are desperate to escape the coming of a shade lord. To survive their adventure, Naomi and Gavin must settle their differences and find the elusive shadow gate that will take them home again. 
The Last Shadow Gate is a book that you will not want to put down. Imagine epic fantasy, but at a middle grade level! Clean, fun, and fast paced adventure that will keep you reading the entire book in one sitting!
The Last Shadow Gate follows siblings Gavin and Naomi on their summer visit to their Great-Grandmother. While they are there, they learn more about their Great-Grandfather and the reasons he is missing. When they get a taste for the same thing.... The Shadow Gates, they also become inthralled with The Shadow Gates.
Once they find themselves across the threshold, Naomi and Gavin have some hard choices to make. They meet new creatures never thought of and make new friends as well as enemies.
The Last Shadow Gate truly is an epic tale for a young generation. There is never a dull moment, and the world that Garza has created is amazing! The story is easy to follow, and super hard to put down, no matter your age!
I love that we all get to watch Naomi and Gavin grow and learn not only to be better siblings, but they learn more about their Great-Grandfather and his journey as well!
Fast paced, intriguing, impossible to put down! Highly suggest that you and your middle grade and up's read it!

THE SHADOW GATE CHRONICLES: 

Book 1: The Last Shadow Gate
Book 2: A Veil of Shadows (Coming Soon) 

Praise for THE LAST SHADOW GATE: 

"If this book had been around when I was a kid, I’d have held it right up there with The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings.”
- Sunshine Somerville, Author of THE KOTA SERIES 


"You won't want to miss out on the thrilling yet perilous world beyond the shadow gates!" 

- J. Cornell Michel, Author of JORDAN'S BRAINS 

*If you love fast-paced, YA Fantasy, THE LAST SHADOW GATE is the book for you.* 

Michael W. Garza often finds himself wondering where his inspiration will come from next and in what form his imagination will bring it to life. The outcomes regularly surprise him and it’s always his ambition to amaze those curious enough to follow him and take in those results. He hopes everyone will find something that frightens, surprises, or simply astonishes them.


Where did the idea for The Last Shadow Gate come from? 
This book was in the draft phase for over a decade. I based the characters on my kids and as they grew and developed their own personalities I allowed the characters in the book to do the same. It’s been a labor of love and seeing it finally in print has been a wonderful experience. Every time I read through it I see my daughter and son on every page. 

Where do you get your ideas? 

Ideas for stories come from the strangest places. I never sit down and say ‘let’s write a book’ there’s usually a spark that comes out of nowhere. It’s the littlest things that lead to the big ideas for me. I’m never in a hurry when it comes to writing so I’ll sit on something for quite a while and let it build until I can see an entire adventure from beginning to end. In that way, by the time I sit down to write I usually know exactly where I’m going. 

How do you find the time to write? 

As a father of three, time is always a challenge. Writing is a hobby for me. It’s something I’m passionate about but my focus is usually needed elsewhere. A majority of my writing is done in the quiet of a late night when everyone else is in bed. I take my shots whenever I can get them. I’ve been known to disappear for a short time here and there if I see an opening for a writing opportunity but a majority of the good stuff I get down on paper is done long after everyone else is snoring.

Blue Bottle Tree by Beaird Glover - Trailer & Sneak Peak

Theres no such thing as Voodoo. At least, thats what most of the Baptists in Bellin tell themselves. But Seven LaVey knows better. 

In a small rural town just outside of Nashville, Voodoo conjures and curses simmer and seethe under the noses of the many who will never know. Seventeen-year-old Seven romanticizes about the meaning of life while held captive as a zombie under the shell of a kiddie pool. He's counting on the strength - and maybe even love - of a certain redheaded clarinet player to save him. But will she?

Filled with betrayal and revenge, two families struggle with a curse that stretches back to Voodoo-ienne Marie Laveau in this contemporary southern gothic adventure. Prepare for a wildly original twist on the paranormal. 
Beaird Glover grew up on a farm in rural Tennessee. He graduated from The Evergreen State College of Olympia, Washington, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in creative writing. He then moved to Southern California and wrote Secret Ciphers of the 1876 Presidential Election (Aegean Park Press). He has traveled extensively and lived in eleven of the United Sates, and Taipei and Buenos Aires. His poems have been published in the New York Quarterly and his chapbook of poetry was selected by the Austin Chronicle as one of the Top 10 Best of 1994. More recently, he acquired a Bachelor of Science degree from Long Island University in Brooklyn and has worked as a physician assistant. Beaird now lives in New Orleans with his wife Kim and their cats.
Extended look:

Blue Bottle Tree by Beaird Glover will be released October 24th and is available now for pre-order.

Dark and Deadly Things by Kelly Martin - Review

Since Elise Morgan left her father’s reality television show, Dark and Deadly Things, she put the ghost-hunting life behind her, able to comfortably watch from her couch. Her father has resorted to faking the hauntings that thrill America, but he could never fool Elise. She can see the dead. 

When the Halloween episode airs live on television, something goes horribly wrong. Four people end up dead, and Elise's father is the lead suspect in their murders. But Elise knows the truth. She watched the thing that crawled from the darkness. She just has to prove her father's innocence. 

Abel Hale was in the house when his family were slaughtered. He felt the cold breeze, heard the scraping of nails along the wall as the entity stalked them. The thing that killed the people he loved was not human. There is only one person who believes him, one person who can help him. Joining forces with Elise, they try to find the creature and stop it once and for all. 

There’s only one problem. How do you kill a ghost?
Do not read this book in the dark... or alone!

Dark and Deadly Things is the name of Elise's family business. They all together and in parts, ran a ghost hunting business called Dark and Deadly Things

Without major spoilers, the book starts with Elise watching her father and crew investigate the Hale home. The Hale family are divided with believing that there is a ghost in the home, so they allowed the show to come in and see what was really going on. 

Things are never as they seem, and there is a major tragedy that occurs during the interview, and it changes everyone. This is not for the better. From this point on, Elise and Able have more in common than not. Each one has their own "ghosts" to overcome from the past, they just don't understand how intertwined their lives have now become. 

I loved this book, but I had to stop reading it when I laid down. There are TONS of sarcastic comments and I live for them. I can totally see me as Elise with that sass just oozing out! HA!

I suggest that if you want to read a real ghost story, one that will keep you turning the pages... grab yourself a copy of Dark and Deadly Things by Kelly Martin! You won't regret it!
