Thanks for Great Books Blog Hop
This post is part of the Beach Book Blast Nov. 25-26 Thanks for Great Books Blog Hop and Fall Ebook Release Event! Nine authors are showcasing our new books at the Beach Book Blast website and at our sister site at the RG2E. We've got something for everyone—from Romantic Suspense, to a sweet Holiday romance, to a YA Dystopian and a few mysteries. To make the event even more fun, we’ve added prizes (a larger one at the Beach Book Blast site and smaller ones at some of the authors’ sites) and a blog hop where readers can connect to their favorite authors and learn what great books, characters, or authors have inspired them.
So what has inspired me as an author?
I’m always inspired by and thankful for books that completely envelop me in their realities. I know I’m reading a fantastic book when my husband or children are talking to me and I don’t hear their voices. Only when they repeat my name multiple times (“Mom, mom, MOM!”) do I realize that the real world is calling.
Different books have fully captivated me. Whether it’s a fun, light romance by Alicia and Roy Street or a consuming, heavy read like When Crickets Cry by Charles Martin, I’m thankful for these books that whisk me away into their own worlds within the pages.
Here’s a peek at my new release in the Beach Book Blast event: Silver Flashing.
With the police and her newspaper coworkers questioning her credibility, Jonie makes tracking down the body her mission. She won’t let anything get in her way, not even distractions that include covering a series of newspaper articles with her old flame, interacting with her dysfunctional family, intercepting a mugging, and surviving a round of mud wrestling.
Silver Flashing is the second novel in the Jonie Waters Mystery series by Amazon bestselling mystery author Tamara Ward. Action and light romance combine with engaging characters and humor for a page-turning whodunit set in Wilmington, NC.
Buy Silver Flashing:
For Kindle from Amazon
In paperback from Amazon
Now, did someone mention prizes?
As for prizes, I’m giving away A Jade O’Reilly short story ebook. Five winners will be drawn randomly from everyone who leaves a comment on this site. Remember to include your email address with your comment! So, tell me, what book/s have so shrouded you in their worlds that you forget reality while you’re reading?
