Link Feast

Posted by on June 13, 2014

Happy Friday y’all!

Time for another link feast!


Congrats Patrick W. Carr! His novel, A Cast of Stone, won the Clive Staples Award. Love that trilogy! Not too long ago, CSFF Blog tour hosted book three, A Draw of Kings. And as I write this, A Cast of Stones is free on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

New releases:

Abiding Flame is two weeks early and Pauline Creeden is celebrating with a giveaway. A first in her new science fiction series. Space stations, a colony orbiting a new planet, prophecies, and demons. Oh my! Her writing keeps getting better with each novel. I look forward to seeing what she has done here.

Lynn Donovan’s latest novel: Rocky Horse Shadows is here. And it looks and sounds freaky. Husband and wife, possessed rocky horse…enough said. If I know anything about Lynn, is that she is an awesome storyteller. I love her style and voice.

In 2160, a teenager becomes the bait to capture her missing revolutionary parents she thinks are long dead. I know I’m behind with this one, but Jupiter Winds released last month, and I just now finished reading it. Good story!  Look for my review later this month.

The long anticipated Five Glass Slippers: A Collection of Cinderella Stories is here!
What happens when Cinderella is so painfully shy that she cannot bear the idea of attending the royal ball? Or when the slipper fits . . . but on the wrong girl? What happens when Cinderella is determined to oust an imposter prince from her rightful throne? Or when she is a cendrillon miner working from a space station orbiting a cthonian planet? What happens when Cinderella, a humble housemaid, is sent with a message for a prisoner trapped in a frightening fairy circus? 


Donita K. Paul is throwing a Fired-up for June Celebration Giveaway. Each week it’s something different, and this week its an MP3 audiobook of One Realm Beyond. You might recall the book from the CSFF blog tour back in February where I shared my thoughts on the story. If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, here’s your chance to win one. 🙂


Summer is here, and with that comes fishing (well, you can ice-fish so maybe that doesn’t count), camping, canoeing, and scary stories around campfires. James L. Rubart and a bunch of his fellow authors have written a scary story each, but it’s up to us to determine who wrote what and enter to win some cool camping gear and a bunch of books.


Coleman Camping Kit includes the following:

— Coleman RoadTrip LXE Propane Grill

— Coleman Sundome 4-Person Tent

— Two (2) Coleman Camping Chairs

— 1 copy of each of the books featured:

  • Critical Condition by Richard Mabry

Find out more and enter to win on Facebook.


Now, I haven’t been able to figure out whether this rafflecopter will expire this evening or if it has already expired, but I just had to take the chance to share them with you. Rel’s Reviews is giving away 6 of the 2014 Christy Award finalistsChristysWeek21200

Bucket list:

Someone shared this article: IT’S CHEAPER TO RENT A FRENCH CASTLE THAN TO STAY AT DISNEY WORLD, and I fell in love. Must. Do. This. Who wouldn’t want to rent a castle for a week or two? My eye is on castle #3. Which one is your favorite?


Social media & Writerly helps:

Ralene Burke shares Five Ways to Be Generous and Build Your Platform. Plus she’s got an awesome post clarifying paragraphs. I’ve took notes. Ha!

Nadine Brandes has some Advice to Those Dreaming of Writing a Book. Man, I wish I had known I was going to write junk when I first started. I would have realized it was NORMAL to feel like Rapunzel in this here meme. This is so me. Ha! Thanks to Jenny Kellerford over at YA Scribbles and Scoops for sharing and for her friend Emily Chapman who created it.



Have a great weekend!

    That was a feast indeed! 😀 I want to get that collection of Cinderella stories, and enter the next collection that’s in production, too!

      Indeed! I kept finding stuff to add, and it kept growing until I was like, enough! Ha! Always so much good stuff out there. I’ll try to do one at least once a month or so. If I wasn’t in the thick of edits for book 2 and trying to write a short story amid all the other projects I’ve got going on, I attempt to enter the next collection. The cover is so beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!

I love hearing from you!
