It’s finally available! The paper version of Signs of Love and Deliverance is now available on Amazon.com. It has not linked to the kindle version’s page of yet, but I’m told that takes several days, even weeks for it to do that, so be aware of that when looking for the paper version that you choose the correct link. It has yet to be available at the amazon.ca or other Amazon sites, but should be on those sites within the next couple of weeks or so. I’ll be sure to let you know when it becomes available on those sites. So, for those of you from the U.S. or those who can’t wait and want the paper copy of Signs now, head on over to amazon.com (link below) and grab your copy. The book is a beautiful, large paperback with 545 pages of reading deliciousness, no small paperback here; you’re going to need your big purse for this one. The cost is $16.00 U.S. and worth every penny, or at least, I think it is. For those of you who still need to wait, I will post another excerpt from Signs sometime next week, perhaps on Monday. In the meantime, take a look at some earlier blogs and read the excerpts there, or hey, even better, go pick up a kindle copy of my book (link below).
Another great piece of news, which is family related not book related, is that my step-son returned home from his Sea Cadet Camp. He was at Blackdown in Borden, Ontario, an army base. I am so proud of him! He passed his Sports and Fitness Instructor Course with a high recommendation. He now has two instructor courses under his belt and hopes that next summer he will be either a Sports and Fitness Instructor or a Drill and Ceremonial Instructor. Yes, he is seriously thinking of joining the Navy. And this mom bites her nails in apprehension while being very proud of her son’s accomplishments. Yes, yes, I know. I referred to him as my step-son earlier and he is; however, I have raised him since he was four with his bio mom rarely in the picture, so he is more my son than a step-son. His Dad and I couldn’t be more proud of how upstanding, good and kind hearted he turned out to be. We couldn’t have asked for a better kid. I am so fortunate to have him in my life.
So, a few weeks ago, I mentioned I would feature an author or a book on my blog on Wednesdays. Well, this week has been a bit busy, trying to get things back to normal and I simply didn’t have the time. However, I will happily do it now.
My Featured Author is: Ruby Dixon
She has several series out, two of which I have been reading. The book I am currently reading is Fire in His Kiss: A Post-Apocalyptic Dragon Romance from the Fireblood Dragons series. This is the second book in the series. The first book is Fire In His Blood. This series is about dragon shifters and their human mates. Several years ago, there was a rift in the sky that caused the dragons to come through, perhaps a rift in dimensions – this has yet to be revealed. The dragons are mad with no memories of their former lives, just the burning desire to destroy and their primary targets are humans. Once they claim a mate, the madness recedes and they are able to think more clearly and shift to their human-like form. The humans live in hives ruled by the military. Life is very hard with food and shelter being scarce and dragons attacking them. Women without a male protector, struggle to survive and many are forced to sell themselves for food and other items. In the first book, Claudia goes to scavenge outside the hive in the old city of Dallas. This is illegal for her to do but she is desperate for food to feed herself, her sister and her friend, Sasha. Claudia is caught and the mayor along with the military set her up as bait for a dragon. This leads her to meet Kael, a golden dragon, and . . . she becomes his mate. One thing leads to another and you will have to read the rest yourself. In the second book, Dakh snatches Sasha from the sky when she is falling from Kael’s back (read book 1). She turns out to be his mate and chases the ravens in his mind away. This is a fun read with steamy dragon-shifter love scenes and a fair share of adventure. A good summer read.
If dragon-shifters don’t do it for you, perhaps blue aliens will. I highly recommend Ice Plant Barbarians. This is such a fun series with really great characters. I read this series a couple of months ago and just couldn’t put it down. I read most of the books and even the short stories. I think I still have the two most recent ones yet to read. In this series, women with little or no relatives were kidnapped from earth by slave-trading aliens. They crash land on an ice planet and the women were able to escape/kill their captors. The ice planet is inhabited by blue aliens, predominately male. Through the course of the series the earth women hook up with the blue aliens and have many adventures and sweet romances. I don’t want to go into more detail as there are quite a few novels in this series, but I can’t stress how much I liked it. It really was enjoyable and I got so caught up in this series. Bravo, Ruby for creating such a great world to get lost in. If I wasn’t already married, I would be looking for my own blue barbarian. So yummy!
The great thing about Ruby Dixon’s novels for readers is that she does have them on kindle unlimited for those who pay for that and if you like to buy your kindle books most of them are around $5.00 and I think the first one in the series is around a $1.00. Go take a look at her books and do some weekend reading. I know I will!
And if Ruby Dixon doesn’t catch your interest, you can always go read a bit of my book. Amazon will let you download a sample of my book and you will get to read into Chapter 3. The links are below for your convenience.
Until next time, have a great weekend and keep on reading!
