Blog Tour & Giveaway: Between the Bleeding Willows by D.A. Roach

syn
At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most… 

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring. 
 
She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….
 
A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment with her demon army.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.
 
Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

D.A. Roach has been telling stories since she was a young girl in the suburbs of Chicago. In college she met the man of her dreams, her happily ever after, and married him 2 weeks after graduating. They have 3 kids together and a pet cockatiel named Gimli. D.A. did not find a love for books until after college. Her parents were immigrants from Lithuania and found tv and radio easier ways to hear stories so they did not do much reading or encourage it. But once she finished college and D.A. had free time, she discovered how amazing it was to get lost in a story.

D.A. is a full time mom and wife. When she is not doing domestic things (laundry, bills, etc) she is writing, reading, creating mixed media art, and helping beautify her kids’ school landscape. Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Sylvia Day. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.

For the last nine years, Alexandria Reed has been locked away, a prisoner of her own nightmares. Determined to escape, she convinced the doctors she was sane. It wasn’t even that hard really. She leaves behind her fears and joins her family in their new home, Jacob’s Fork, West Virginia, where she plans out her nice, normal life.
 
But she’s not normal. She can never be normal.
 
Soon after her arrival to the sleepy little town, Alex comes face to face with her past and learns something terrifying. There’s a secret her family has killed to protect, a secret that has now put her and her brother’s life at risk.
 
Luka Rinaldi both fascinates and frustrates Alex from the moment she meets him. He’s dark and broody, arrogant, and hot enough to scorch brimstone. She’s drawn to him despite all the warning signs telling her he means her harm. She wants to trust him, but her instincts tell her to run.
 
Aided by her new friends, who have some dark secrets themselves, can she survive long enough to figure out the secret behind the secret?

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tells me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
 
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
 
Now, I live Huntersville, NC and a small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
 
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
Happy reading, 
Jordan

Release Day Blitz: The Other Side of Gravity by Shelly Crane

 

Amazon/iBooks/Smashwords/B&N/Kobo/Goodreads

syn
My name is Maxton and I’m a trader.
I live on a soulless planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market. People are sold on the black market, too. You have to work really hard not to become one of those people. Pay your taxes, keep your friends and family close, and more than anything else—don’t get caught by the Militia. But all the rules changed for me the day I found her.
 
My name is Sophelia and I’m a stowaway.
I’ve been a slave for almost as long as I can remember. Waiting for the one day, one second, for my proprietor to turn his head so I could run and never look back. Now I’m on the run. And on a planet where no one is on your side and people would turn you in for a good meal or a piece of a silver, being on the run on Landu is the last place you want to be. Until he found me.
 
I won’t survive without him.
 
I can’t breathe without her.

Excerpt“This’ll work. Thank you, Maxton.”

My eyebrows lifted. “You got some mind powers I don’t know about?”

She gave me a funny look, but added a small smile. That smile… Holy. Wow. “You gave me your shirt. Unless you’re also a slave, you have your own clothes.”

I absentmindedly reached back to rub the tag with my name in it on my shirt. “That’s right. Sorry. And what’s your name?”

“You want to know my name?” she barely whispered.

I grinned. “It’s only fair.”

She took a breath, looking at my mouth for a moment. I wondered the last time that anyone had smiled at her.

“Sophelia.” She laughed once, but it was more of sadness than anything funny. “I haven’t said my name in years.”

That rocked me to my core. “What did your proprietor call you?” And I immediately regretted that question.

She smiled, but again it was the opposite of her actual emotion. “You don’t want to know.”

I gulped, knowing I needed to get away from her.

Right now.

“Hey, I’m sure you’re tired. Why don’t you take a nap or something while I go get my work done? When you wake up, we’ll be there.”

She must have noticed the off change in my tone, but just looked at me before going to my bed.

“Okay.” She laid down, facing the wall, and sighed so deeply. “A bed,” I heard her mutter.

“Wow, I’d forgotten.”

I left without another word.

I leaned against the wall outside my room, the back of my head to the wall, and stayed there for a minute. A couple of Havard’s regulars walked by, but I said nothing to them. He always had workers here and there, but I was his right hand and everybody knew it.

I went up to the top floor, pressed my thumb to the scanner, and went inside. Havard used the old technologies. He said it was cheap and gave the illusion of safety. If someone was dumb enough to crack through his security, then they’d meet their maker soon rather than later for being than dumb.

“Havard!” I called.

“Get in here, boy. Maybe we want to postpone our shipment for a day.”

“What?” I said, the shock evident in my voice. There was no reason I could think of that Havard would make his shipments late. None. Except silver.

“A slave escaped.”

I schooled my face. I was good at that. I crossed my arms. “So. Slaves escape sometimes. Who cares?”

“Someone apparently. This slave is worth a pretty silver.” He flipped the screen hanging over his desk around so I could see it. There she was. The redheaded beauty. And next to her face was a number I never thought I’d see in my lifetime.”

I gulped. “Why is she worth so much?”

“Why does it matter? I bet if we stayed a night longer, was a little late on our shipments, we could find her. I’ll split the finder’s fee with you.”

That silver…would change my life, would change so much for me. Could I really let one conversation with this girl take away everything I’ve worked my whole life for?

I steeled my back and face, thought about the one girl who did mean something to me back home. This girl on this ship meant nothing to me, but that girl back home was my life. I barely knew her anymore because I’d been gone so long, but she was everything and I needed this money to save her. I remembered that as I uttered my next word and condemned the girl in my room to hell.

“Funny this should pop up on your screen, Havard.” I grinned my best evil grin. “I was just coming to find you.”

He grinned back, not knowing why, but knowing he was about to make some silver. “Why was that?”

“The girl?” I nodded toward the picture.

“She stowed away in the ship.” I leaned in with my knuckles on his desk. “She’s in my room, right now.”

“You’re joking,” he barked.

“About silver? Never.”

He leaned back and smiled before jumping up from his seat. “Let’s go, crook.”
