Eternal Echoes Dedication


When I pick up a book, the first thing I read is the dedication and acknowledgments. I often wonder about the stories behind them. If you've read the Eternal Echoes dedication page, you'll know that it's dedicated to my brother and sister. I wanted to tell you why.


My brother and sister have Peters Anomaly Plus Syndrome. You can read more about it in this post. They were born blind, and had other developmental problems as well. They've fought against incredible odds for years, and thanks to the wonderful people who have helped them, and their optimism, they've thrived. Not only that, but their surgeries helped to pioneer treatments for other people born with Peters Anomaly and Peters Anomaly Plus. A huge part of the reason for their success is the tenacity and skills of the doctors at the Moran Eye Center.

The Moran Eye Center is the largest vision and research center in the Intermountain West. The doctors there, and at the University of Utah, literally gave my brother and sister eyesight when all other doctors told my parents to put my siblings in a hospital and wait for them to die. The doctors and staff are truly amazing people, committed to helping as many people as possible to receive sight and have a better life. They make sure that regardless of a person's problems, or their ability to pay, they can still receive treatment. They do medical missions outside of the United States, and Charitable Surgery Days at the hospital in Utah. My brother and sister have been recipients of the amazing talents and love of the Moran Eye Center doctors and staff.   

It's always been a dream of mine to be able to pay forward the help and support my family received when my brother and sister were young. I thought it would be a nice tribute to include a note about the Moran Eye Center in the book dedicated to my brother and sister. So, that's the reason for the donation information below the dedication.

Thank you for all of your support of my books, and to the people who have been there for Colten and Natasha, you have my heart!

Blog Tour-Warrior Beautiful by Wendy Knight!


Warrior Beautiful (Riders of Paradesos, #1)
Author: Wendy Knight
Check out on Goodreads!
Purchase on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

Synopsis: Working with the ex you secretly love to save the souls of the innocent is almost as bad as working with a mighty battle unicorn who would be thrilled to watch you plummet to your death.

Scout is used to pain. Her body has been broken, her heart has been broken, and the only thing keeping her together is her relationship with her younger sister. Lil Bit be-lieves in unicorns and terrifying monsters she calls soul stealers. But unicorns and monsters aren’t real…are they?

When Lil Bit falls prey to the mysterious disease sweeping the country, Scout has two options – believe the doctors who say it’s a pandemic or believe Lil Bit, who says it’s the soul stealers. She chooses her sister and goes looking for the unicorns who are supposed to save them. What she finds aren’t the cute pastel mythical creatures she expects. Battle unicorns are big and tough and full of attitude. Who knew?

Unicorns are real and so are the monsters. Soul stealers are reaping the souls of the innocent, and the unicorns are fighting to stop them. But to save the world, they need the help of humans – the enemy they’re dying to protect. And first to sign up for the fight is the ex-boyfriend Scout’s heart won’t stop loving, no matter how determined she is to hate him.

Book Excerpt



Scout opened her mouth. Was she supposed to yell ‘yah!’ or something? “Don’t. Even. Think. About. It.” How Ashra could sound so firm and annoyed at the same time when she wasn’t actually even speaking was beyond Scout, but she snapped her mouth shut and looked around wildly for reins, or a mane to hold on to, or something.
“Grab the mist. It will become what you need.” Ashra still sounded annoyed, but she waited until Scout had a firm hand on the mane-of-mist.
How is it even possible to have a firm hold on mist? Scout wondered wildly as Ashra launched herself into the sky — straight up, no running start or anything. Scout stifled a howl and threw her arms around Ashra’s thick neck. She could hear the unicorn laughing at her; it bounced around like a loose pinball inside her skull.
“Quiet, you. I’ve never even ridden a horse, let alone a flying unicorn!” Scout yelled, but her words were lost in the wind as Ashra’s giant flaming wings spread out, beating easily against the sky.


About the Author
Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera, etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heel for whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.

The Cindy Chronicles, by RaShelle Workman!

The Cindy Chronicles is finished. This story has everything. Action. Romance. Science Fiction. Magic. Dragons. Fantasy. Kissing. True love. And a happily ever after.

To celebrate, Cindy *snicker* is throwing a party!!!

The Cindy Chronicles is a fractured fairy tale that was created from the Blood and Snow world. Cindy is Snow White's best friend. There's a whole lot in store for her.

Here's the summary: 
Genre: YA Fractured Fairy Tale

All six volumes of The Cindy Chronicles in one bestselling set. 


From a seemingly insignificant word comes the most magical of fairytales. 

Possessing magic sucks.
What doesn't suck? Fashion, Cindy's boyfriend Gabe, and her best friend, Snow White.
Cindy (Cinderella...shhh, don't tell) was born a witch. It's part of who she is. But there's more to her than that. She loves deeply. And has a big heart. She'd do anything for those she cares about, including risk her own life to save theirs.
When her fairy godmother demands she leave Salem, Massachusetts and return to the land she was born to rule, she has two options. Tell her fairy godmother no, and seal a death sentence on complete strangers. Or, leave all she's ever known behind, including the love of her life, for an unknown land she's fated to save.
So, yeah, life sucks.
But Cindy is determined to change that.

It's available on:


The Cindy Chronicles:

Witch Magic
Witch Land
Witch Time
Witch Kiss

Eternal Echoes Book Blast!




She thought she stopped the evil.

She thought she was safe.

Everything she thought was wrong.

Almost four months have passed since Evie Starling learned she was a Tracker and helped defeat a Daevos Clan that was taking others like her—but that wasn’t the end of the abductions. As an unknown evil emerges, Evie vows to help solve the mystery of the missing Trackers, regardless of the risk.

With new powers she doesn’t understand and can’t control, she turns to Alex and Emil, her two soul mates, for help. But her feelings for them both are tearing her apart.

As the world around her is thrown into chaos, Evie is confronted with what could be a destiny-altering truth. Will she accept her history, her memories, and her role in this life, or choose to ignore the echoes of her past?

SYNOPSIS:
There is a place in all of us where our deepest secrets lie in wait for their moment to surface, and surface they will.

Luke knows Olivia is not as recovered as she would have him believe. He can see the pain she tries to keep hidden behind her eyes, and knows she has not told him everything. But how do you save someone who won’t let you in? Where shame holds Olivia captive, Luke suffers through the guilt of not protecting the one person he loves more than anything.
Can two people who have suffered so dearly find a way to come together or will they risk the dreams they have placed in each other’s hearts? Can love find a way where forgiveness cannot?

AUTHOR BIO:
1371284_4936501510746_669029856_n

Author Jennifer Miller was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but now calls Arizona home. Jennifer’s love of reading began when she was a small child, and only continued to grow as she entered adulthood. Ever since winning a writing contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl with a pet unicorn, she’s dreamed of writing a book of her own.
Quickly learning that dreams don’t just fall into your lap, she knew she had to chase them herself and not be afraid to dream a little bigger. Most importantly, she is a wife and mother, and is very lucky to have a family that loves and supports her in all things. She also has an unhealthy addiction to handbags and chocolate covered strawberries, neither of which she cares to change.
