RELEASE DAY: Around The Bend by Britney King

Around the Bend RDL



If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn’t even look twice. I’m that normal. I’m just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell—I’m so cliché, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I’ve dotted my I’s and crossed my T’s. But what I also have—what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line—are secrets.

Deep, dark, deadly secrets.

We all keep secrets, don’t we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they’d be shocked…right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren’t always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story?

In this book, I’m laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might’ve seen had they been paying attention.

What I’ve found in life is people often believe lies before they’ll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I’ll let you decide which is which.











unnamed (6)For those of you who prefer it straight up, no chaser: Mama to five. Writer. Juggler Extraordinaire. That just about covers it…

The extended version and in third person no less ;): Britney is married to a man she adores (when he isn’t driving her crazy) and is the mother of FIVE pretty amazing kids, who (surprise!) also have a habit of driving her crazy. Her best guess is that it’s genetic. She is the author of three novels, Bedrock, Breaking Bedrock, and Somewhere With You, with plans to release fourth and fifith in 2014. In addition, she founded a local network for women in 2012, which has grown to almost 1200 members. Currently, she occupies a job she enjoys–serving and running Austin Women’s Network. To further prove that she may in fact be certifiably insane, she decided to pursue her dreams and published her debut novel in May of 2013. Then and only then, could she consider her training to be an expert (life) juggler complete.

She would love it if you would connect with her via Facebook and Twitter.

In her free time, you might find Britney running, reading, or spending time utilizing the wonderful venues that make her city great.

BOOK BLITZ: Figment (Mad in Wonderland) by Cameron Jace




After her encounter with the Cheshire Cat, Alice Wonder can hardly tell reality from imagination. But when kids have their head chopped off and stuffed in watermelons all over the city, it’s clear that another Wonderland Monster has arrived, possibly scarier than the Cheshire. Alice, along with Professor Pillar, have to solve the killer’s puzzles before a horrible event threatens the death of millions. Then Jack Diamonds appears again. This time, Alice must know who he really is.



“Are you wearing this dress for me?” He has his arm resting on the doorframe, a seductive gleam flowering in his eyes.

“Jack!” I tiptoe like a young girl meeting her loved one after he has been away for long.

“With a dress like that, I could get on my knees and propose.”

I am sure I am blushing, so I lower my head and lace my hands. Slowly, Jack’s finger nudges me back to look at him. “You know I am poor and can’t afford a ring, right?”

“You’re just silly.” I am blushing red roses out of my cheeks.

“I’m not silly. I am mad.”

“You’re not mad. Trust me.” I wrap my fingers around his wrist. I feel as if the world is slowly disappearing all around me. No one’s left in it but him and me. “I’m the mad one. I have a Certificate of Ins—”

“I’m mad about you,” he says. I don’t think he heard what I just said. “I would go to the moon and back for you. You have no idea, Alice.”

“Mad enough to die for me?” I shrug. In the name of Mushroomers, why did I say that?

“Alice.” He leans in, still smelling of a deck of cards. Normally, a smell like that would spoil a moment like this. It doesn’t. I’m in love with all the nonsense aces, spades, hearts, clubs, and diamonds he brings to my life. “You can kill me anytime you want. I won’t complain,” he whispers.

A sticky tear threatens to seep out of my eye when he says that. Now, why did he say that? Should I tell him that I killed him? Should I tell him I have no idea how he is standing in front of me?

RELEASE DAY: Chasing the Tide (Reclaiming the Sand #2) by A. Meredith Walters


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]


***The powerful continuation of the story that began in Reclaiming the Sand- a tale of love and forgiveness and learning to move on from a past that has come to define you.***

Bully and Victim

Friend and Lover

Past and Future

Ellie McCallum and Flynn Hendrick’s story was as painful as it was devastating. But they were able to find within each other an unlikely yet beautiful love. Despite the obstacles that tried to keep them apart.

And together they rose out of the ashes of their tragic history.

Now years after their life changing reunion Ellie is back in Wellston, having just graduated from college and ready to start her future with the man who taught her how to love. However, returning to a town that held so much bitterness and anger was the last place she wanted to start over.

But for Flynn, who is now an art professor at the community college and firmly rooted in the place that gave them their beginning, she’d do just about anything.

Yet it’s difficult building a life when you’ve only just learned how to live.
And love, no matter how strong, doesn’t always conquer all.

Ellie and Flynn must learn how far they are willing to go to stay together. Or whether the ghosts of the past will consume them both.

Because finding a happily ever after is harder than it seems. Particularly when you’re fighting against the one thing that could destroy you.

BLOG TOUR & GUEST POST: Feel by Karen-Anne Stewart




The one whose emotions I can’t feel is the one who makes me feel the most.

I was a sensitive, at least that’s what I was told by the boy who saved me from the overwhelming emotions that consumed my soul, the boy who saved me from myself when my gift became stronger. Through the years, he was my redemption, my reason to take my next breath…then, he was gone.

Jensen always told me I was strong, but I didn’t believe him until I was forced to be strong on my own, and I kept breathing without him. I’ve taken 42 million breaths since the moment he sent me away. Now, four years later, he’s standing in front of me, and I can barely breathe.

This isn’t just a story about the abilities I possess; it’s a story about something much stronger…the love of the man who possesses every part of me.

***Disclaimer – Feel is intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.



It’s no secret that I am a completely hopeless sucker for a powerful love story.  I am beyond obsessed with the depth of emotions and passion shared between heroes and heroines in romance novels, and there’s just something undeniably addictive about sweethearts in high school reuniting a few years later and falling in love all over again.  My new novel, Feel, tells the story of Jensen and Saige, friends who bonded on a playground when Saige was only seven.  Over the years, Jensen was Saige’s redemption, her reason to take her next breath…then he was gone.

Feel is a story full of emotions that will make the reader feel right along with Jensen and Saige as they deal with pain, betrayal, loyalty, and a love that never died when they come face to face after four years of being apart.  A story of second chances is always fun to read, and I enjoyed writing Jensen and Saige’s second chance more than I ever thought I could.  Showing their feelings in their own POVs made it even more heart-wrenching and endearing as I felt what they felt while creating the words to their pain and healing.  Saige never felt strong until Jensen sent her away.  Her hell showed her the strength Jensen always knew she had inside.  One of my favorite scenes to write was the first time Jensen and Saige saw each other again.  Saige’s pain reignites while Jensen’s eases for the first time in the four years she was gone.


Whatever he’s getting ready to say is cut off when the door opens.  The sun blinds me as it pours inside, and I open my mouth to scream but all air flees my lungs when I see him, the one person I ever trusted, ever loved; the one person who ever made me feel safe…That night four years ago sears my soul and the pain threatens to destroy me all over again.


The entire world stops when I see the dark caramel eyes that have haunted me every damn night staring back at me.  A thousand thoughts spin through my head, but I can’t seem to form one coherent word as my chest aches from memories…I watch the one girl who consumed me, healed me, fuckin’ wrecked me, slowly blink as she looks at me so intently, it feels she’s staring straight into my soul, just like she’s done a million times before.

Feel is my fifth novel, but it’s my first paranormal and my first novel writing about two people who once loved each other find that love again…only stronger.  I was in an emotional tsunami, and I loved every second piecing together who Jensen and Saige are now with who they once were, while creating who they become together.

The past four years I tried to think of every possible scenario that would exonerate him from what happened to me.  A part of me always believed he could never put me through hell like that, knowing that there was no way he could be aware of what was happening to me.  Hearing that he really didn’t know restores my faith in him, my faith in me for wanting to believe him, for missing him, for still wanting him despite all the pain I endured. 

Jensen leans so close, I can feel his warm breath against my face.  His green eyes shine just like they did before all of the crap that happened, and I have to catch my breath.  I’ve needed to see him look at me like this again so badly, I’ve dreamt about it every night.  Gently, he places his hand against my cheek, his fingers softly caressing my skin, “This is how you deserve to be touched, Saige.  All I’ve ever wanted for you is something good, something pure, that can take your pain away.”

I hope the readers enjoy living Jensen and Saige’s second chance along with them in Feel.
