Review of The Firmament of Night by Edward Phantom

I picked up The Firmament of Night by Edward Phantom out of curiosity and devoured it in one sitting. The story is well written with just enough detail to paint vivid images in your head and an ending that will wow you. Cannot wait to see what he comes out with next. Definitely adding him to my 'must read' list!

A short to share

I had written a very short story back in January, and by short I mean only a page long.  It was originally just a way for me to release some guilt that I knew I shouldn't have from the loss of a friend and I had no intention of sharing it, but with  so many people asking me about how to draw from your pain to write, I thought I would share.

Writing the words down, letting the emotion flow from inside you and onto the paper is very therapeutic.  

You can find it on on Wattpad.

Kindle MatchBook

So I just enrolled in Kindle's very cool new program called Kindle MatchBook. Once the enrollment is complete, people that buy a print copy of my book through Amazon will have the option to purchase the Kindle version for only $.99 more..  Never fear, those that already purchased a copy will also get the option to buy the discounted Kindle version. Pretty neat!

What does this mean for you?  Well besides a discount, it means you can gift someone the print copy and have the e-version for yourself.  Now you have even more reasons to give books as gifts!

Another benefit is for those with kids that have a Kindle.  I know personally I will not allow my daughter to bring hers to school, too big of a risk of it being stolen.  If she's reading a book she wants to be able to read on the bus, this way she can have a copy for reading at home and one for leaving in her backpack.  Okay, yeah so this does not have anything to do with my book, but it does pertain to the MatchBook program. :)

Keep an eye out for it.

As always, if you read a book please leave a review.  It may not seem like that much to you, but we really appreciate it.  Happy reading!

End of Summer

So, summer vacation is finally coming to an end and my kids return to school tomorrow.  This has been a really weird summer for us.    We never made it to the park, even though the kids got new bikes.  Every time we planned to go to the park it rained. :( So we stayed home and played games instead.  The kids loved going to the pool with their grandmother and dad while I stayed at the house and worked.  This was fine with me since the sun and I do not get along in the least.   Our usual family vacation at Pennsic War was thrown into a blender thanks to all the changes they made to the event dates, but we still had a good time.  To end things, we took our usual trip to Seabreeze Amusement Park and had a blast on the water rides and dry rides.  One of my friends from my younger years was there with his family, so it was a great reunion.  Sadly the Garmin decided to fall off the windshield and hit the button for the hazards, leaving us with a dead battery.  My mom came out and gave us a jump, and finally we got home.  So now that all the excitement is over, the school supply shopping complete and backpacks ready, I am both excited and sad to see the end of summer.  But enough of that, let's get to the writing.

Yesterday I received book three in the trilogy from the editor, polished it up and about to do the final read through.  If all looks good, it will go to the publisher and be available for sale really soon!  This trilogy has been quite a learning experience and I think once it is over I will be reformatting the first two books so that they match the final one better.  The main character Aingeal has gone through so very much, it is about time her journey comes to an end.  For all of you that have been following her, thank you and I hope you like how her story comes to an end.

Oh and do not fret, this is not the end of my writing.  I have a new story in the works and plan to explore a new world with all new characters and maybe even revisit one or two of your favorite characters from the trilogy.  Stay tuned.

As always, if you read a book please leave a review.  It may not seem like that much to you, but we really appreciate it.  Happy reading!

Perfection Challenged Cover Reveal (Award-winning Double Helix series) by Jade Kerrion

Perfection Challenged, the thrilling conclusion to Jade Kerrion's multiple award-winning, bestselling DOUBLE HELIX series, will be released on September 17th and will be available in paperback and all electronic formats. Beta readers have declared Perfection Challenged "the best of the four books...the perfect ending to an amazing series."

If you've never picked up the DOUBLE HELIX series, keep on reading for a special offer on Perfection Unleashed, the book that launched the DOUBLE HELIX series.


An alpha empath, Danyael Sabre has survived abominations and super soldiers, terrorists and assassins, but he cannot survive his failing body. He wants only to live out his final days in peace, but life and the woman he loves, the assassin Zara Itani, have other plans for him.

Galahad, the perfect human being created by Pioneer Labs, is branded an international  threat, and Danyael is appointed his jury, judge, and executioner. Danyael alone believes that Galahad can be the salvation that the world needs, but is the empath blinded by the fact that Galahad shares his genes, and the hope that there is something of him in Galahad?

In a desperate race against time and his own dying body, Danyael struggles to find fragments of good in the perfect human being, and comes to the wrenching realization that his greatest battle will be a battle for the heart of the man who hates him.



Recipient of six literary awards, including first place in Science Fiction, Reader Views Literary Awards 2012 and Gold medal winner in Science Fiction, Readers Favorites 2013.

"Higher octane than Heroes. More heart than X-Men."

Danyael Sabre spent sixteen years clawing out of the ruins of his childhood and finally has everything he wanted—a career, a home, and a trusted friend. To hold on to them, he keeps his head down and plays by the rules. An alpha empath, he is powerful in a world transformed by the Genetic Revolution, yet his experience has taught him to avoid attention.

Perfection UnleashedWhen the perfect human being, Galahad, escapes from Pioneer Laboratories, the illusory peace between humans and their derivatives—the in vitros, clones, and mutants— collapses into social upheaval. The abominations, deformed and distorted mirrors of humanity, created unintentionally in Pioneer Lab’s search for perfection, descend upon Washington D.C. The first era of the Genetic Revolution was peaceful. The second is headed for open war.

Although the genetic future of the human race pivots on  Galahad, Danyael does not feel compelled to get involved and risk his cover of anonymity, until he finds out that the perfect human being looks just like him.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, E-BOOKS AVAILABLE FOR  JUST $0.99 (Discounted from $2.99)
