~Release Blitz~
Shoot For The Moon, Book 2 ~ Black River Series by Rochelle Paige


Eliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn't able to save her mother or the alpha's son and she found herself exiled - a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.

Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn't recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it's the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.

When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever. When another she-wolf insists she's his mate instead, things get even more complicated. But Spencer isn't the alpha's second and enforcer because he isn't willing to fight for what's his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.

This is book two in the Black River Pack series. Each novella will feature a different couple.

Crying Wolf (Black River Pack, #1)



Tuesday, 30 December 2014


Today we are featuring Author Rosemary Rey. Below you will find an interview with Rosemary, book information and links, a giveaway along with Roesmary's Author information.
Don't forget to check out her books!!!
Q. Rosemary, Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A. I’m a stay at home mother of three children. I am taking a break from practicing public interest law in favor of being a full time writer. Essentially, I’m broke as an attorney, and I’m broke as a writer. However, my goal is to make writing a full-time career and garner a living wage, so I can get these stories out of my mind and share them with others.
Q. Was there any author that inspired you to write?
A. Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison. I love the stories they’ve brought forth and I plan to write a novel in the same vein of the genre. I love their stories of the African American experience, and I hope to write the same of the African Latino experience in America.
Q. What genre do you write?
A. Contemporary Romance and Erotica with a twist under my pen name of Rosemary Rey. I love plot twists in romance/erotica because it makes for a full story. My favorite thing is to keep the reader guessing. When they think they have it figured out, I give them a twist which frustrates and excites
them at the same time. I want the reader to spend the entire day or stay up all night reading my book and then cursing me out for the cliffhangers I’ve included.
Q. Who are some of your favourite authors?
A. Sylvia Day, Laurelin Paige, Julia Kent, Shelby Reed, Maya Banks, J Kenner. Even more to name. I love their stories because it grips me and keeps me reading until the last page, seeking more of their voice thereafter.
Q. How many books have you written to date?
A. I’ve written two books in The Pentagon Group series which is not a military book despite the title. Rebound is book one and Unbound is book two. I wrote a standalone, Flame, which takes elements of The Pentagon Group so readers of my series and standalones can continue to connect with characters
previously introduced.
Q. Where can the readers find your books?
Q. Are you currently working on any new projects? Can you tell us a little about
A. I’m working on Book 3 of The Pentagon Group series. It concludes the story of my main characters Perla Mercurio and Dr. Mathias Keene. My goal is to write books about the other characters introduced in the first two books. They will each have a standalone. It will keep me busy for the next couple of years. I’m also planning to write a literary fiction book for 2015 which I will seek to publish with a House or small press before resigning myself to going Indie.
It will be for New Adult in Magical Realism. The book I equate it with is Like Water for Chocolate, One Hundred Years of Solitude, or Eva Luna. I’m excited about exploring a different genre. I will publish that book in my legal name in order to separate it from the Contemporary Romance/Erotica genre.
Q. What are your thoughts on reviews?
A. I need them to give me critique and motivation to continue writing the story.
Also, I haven’t sold many books. Reviews and word of mouth about my books will help with sales and rankings. So far the most reviews I’ve obtained were from books given for honest reviews. And only a third of the books given have led to a response. I’ve received pretty good reviews. I’d like more readers to take a chance on me because I don’t have a street team. The readers that
promote me have read my books and loved my ‘voice’. They’ve befriended me and support me, but they are too few to spread the message.
Q. Do you respond to your reviews good or bad?
A. I thanked a 2 star reviewer because I provided the book and she gave me her honest review. She didn’t like my character. But didn’t comment on the story line. I recently received a 1 star and it appears like the reader didn’t finish. I was passive aggressive and made a comment on my FB account about receiving my first 1 star. However, I would never respond to the reader because I never provided a book to thank her and it is the reader’s opinion.
My only issue is when a reader rates, but doesn’t write a text review. If you rate low, there must be a reason for the rating and the author deserves some explanation. An author can’t progress without knowing how it connected (or didn’t) with the reader.
Q.What is your favourite thing about being an author?
A. Using my creativity, which was stifled before, is my favorite part of being an author. I’ve always loved to write and fantasize stories as a young girl. I’ve always predicted movies and books. I love being challenged to, in turn, challenge the reader. Contemporary romance and erotica, in my opinion, can be a fine piece of literature too. I’ve read some great stories that have swept me into another world.
Q.What is one thing you wish you could change in the Indie community?
A. I’ve had great experiences communicating with other authors in the indie community. Many have been supportive and encouraging. I’ve not had the “drama” I’ve read about from other Indies. What I’m having difficulty with is breaking through to readers to try to give my book a chance without paying a ton of money to promo with a blog or group. I’m completely no-budget. I do my covers to self-editing content after another author does a quick proof, but not line by line editing. I read and re-read my books to continuously edit spelling, missing words, and grammar, but content remains the same. I sometimes feel that there are a select few in the Indie community that are highly regarded and everyone else coming up have to mix the right formula to make their book a successful publication. It is demoralizing when I recommend my book, which can be similar to another story, but I don’t make a sale and no new readers are talking about my book. The same books are suggested time after time. I’ve tried to shrug it off, but it is difficult to get better when I feel that I’m failing and shouldn’t continue to waste my time.
Q. How can readers get in contact with you or find out more about your books?
Q .Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven't included?
I would like to thank Til The Last Page for providing me a forum to give more
information about myself, my writing, and my goals. I hope readers will take
a chance on a new Indie and read either my series or start off with my stand

Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, a Scottish organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge's son Sinclair--until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She's always known this undertaking would place her life in danger--she never imagined her heart would be as well.

The Next Sin – Release Date – Feb 9th, 2015
One Last Sin – Release Date – March 23, 2015
Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“Damn, you don’t give much away.”
He’s right. I have to make myself more vulnerable. “Most men don’t appreciate hearing the word no when it comes to sex, so I thought you were skipping out on me.” I shrug. “I must confess it was a huge letdown to not see you for two days. I wondered if my demands might have been too much for you to handle or maybe I was a turnoff.”
“It’s the opposite for me. I’ve never been more turned on.”
“I’m calling bullshit.” As much as I hate to admit it, that damn Geneen was stunning—until I broke her nose. “I’ve seen the women at the bar. Some are gorgeous and have bodies to die for. There’s no way I’m the biggest turn-on you’ve ever had.”
“Bleu. Those women are beautiful until you know them and understand their motives for being at Duncan’s. Every last one of them wants to be claimed, and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.”
Claimed. I remember reading about this in one of the files. The Fellowship has this bizarre practice of laying claim on women they aren’t married to. “I don’t understand what you mean by claimed.”
“You don’t understand because you aren’t like them. And I like that very much.”
“I want you to tell me what it means. Is it a Scottish thing?”

“Another time, Bonny Bleu.”
Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:
“I’m in the business of boundaries and limits. I’m aware of what mine are and how far I’m willing to go to get my job accomplished. It can include lying and sometimes stealing.” I wait a moment for driving the last nail into the coffin. “And perhaps the occasional killing.”
“How do you feel when you do those things?”
“Powerful.” I purposely choose that word because it’s the one she used to describe how she felt when she brought Duff to his knees. I want her to see just how similar we are.
She watches out the window for a minute before speaking again. “Do you like the way it feels?”
I can’t lie. I get a high from it. “Very much.”Another minute passes. “Okay.”
What? “Just … okay?”
“Would you like me to be horrified?” she asks. “I can do that if it would make you feel better or improve your opinion of me.”
She’s no fucking Pollyanna. So I guess there’s no reason for her to pretend to be. “No. Okay works for me.”
I’m not sure if I should be disturbed by her lack of appall. It feels like a double standard to be shocked by an absence of dismay.
My God, has the pot met the kettle? “I wish I could get inside your head.”
“No, you don’t,” she says. “My mind is a dark place to be.”
I think I may have met the perfect woman. In her eyes, I’m not a monster at all.
Bleu MacAllister’s POV:
“You better be worth all this work and waiting.” He nips my bottom lip and gives my ass another painful squeeze before turning to walk to his car.
Anticipation—it builds excitement and suspense. The brain really is a sexual organ, even for men. Sin is going to spend the next five days and nights fantasizing about what it’ll be like when he finally has me beneath him. Waiting is something he’s never had to do so this is another way of setting me apart from the others before me. It proves I’m worth the wait and far more than just fuckworthy.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Rating: 3.5 Stars

Synopsis......Sounded great
Georgia Cates...... I love her to pieces.
As a fan of Georgia Cates I was over the moon when I saw the arc for A Necessary Sin show up on my kindle. Right away, I dropped everything I was doing and reading and dived in. The story starts off with suspense and I Shouted ”Oh MY”. I knew I was in for a ride based on where Georgia was taking the story.
So, popcorn in hand and my kindle in the other I continued to read about Bleu MacAllister and Sinclair Breckenridge.
 Bleu was a very strong, independent, determine, level headed heroine. I enjoyed reading about someone that had everything together and was not all over the place.
 Then we have Sin who was a mystery. He was very guarded at first and once he opened up to Bleu I would say he was intriguing. I felt that some of the secrets that both Bleu and Sin  had were very interesting.
What I did not like:
I did not like that I could not connect with the characters. I am big on falling for a character which makes me devour the story.  There were so  many little things that contributed to my questioning of both characters. I felt that Sin who was labelled as always suspicious of someone trying to take down the Fellowship let down his guard way to quickly. Sin was Scottish which I found it very hard sometimes to understand what I was reading.
I wanted to know more about Bleu's thinking behind the decision she made to bring her monster to justice. How did she remember the name of the killer and why she did some of the things she did (I don't want to give to much away)
Overall, I felt that this was an ok read. I wasn't overcome with emotions or sitting at the edge of my seat. I did find that the story had an interesting story line and was very unique. Book 2 is coming out in February and I plan to read it to see if the story picks up for me.

Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two
beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she
decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.
When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s
listening to her iPod and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story
coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Today is Day 28 in our Author Spotlight/Giveaways. Today's Featured author is Darren Kirby. Please check out my interview with Author Darren and book information and links below.
Q. Who/What inspired you to become an author?
A. I feel like I've always wanted to be an author, but just never had the nerve to actually do
it. I would read many different books and think, wow, how did they ever come up with
that? The truth is, I'm coming up with great things now myself, and if you're looking around
the ideas are endless. I think it's just something that I needed to do, I just needed to get
the courage up to start it. Now that I'm doing it, it's just as awesome as I imagined it would be.
Q. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A. Currently I'm the Product Manager with a national education company, which allows me
wonderful opportunities to deal with many different people around the world. It's also
provided me insight into the inner workings of a publishing company. In my off time,
along with enjoying camping, board and video games, and other outdoor activities, I enjoy
Q. What genre do you write?
A. For fiction, I currently write under my own name in the Thriller/Horror genres. I have 7
different works out at present, I'm working on a new title, and I have many, many other
story ideas and sequels to go. For my nonfiction, I write in 2 areas: Political, and outdoor
cooking. The outdoor cooking is still being worked on, but I'm hoping to have it done and
out by the Spring of 2015. The nonfiction works are under pen names.
Q. Have you ever thought about writing something different/another genre?
A. Yes, I have plans to write in different genres. First, I have a few sci-fi story ideas I'd like
to explore, things that I haven't read about yet. I also have an idea for a teen-focused adventure/mystery series that I think would be fun, but I feel that would prove to be a challenge for me as I would want to self-censor. As another idea, sort of on a dare/lark, a group of writer friends are all going to attempt to write some erotica under pen names and put out a bundle of them, as well as individually. This was hilarious to discuss as a group, and I think it will be a fun exercise for all of us.
Q. How many books have you written to date?
A. As I mentioned, I currently have 7 titles out, though to be fair 1 of those is a collection,
so really 6 original works plus the collection. That's all in the fiction realm. I have 1 nonfiction up for Politics, and that is currently also broken up into 6 separate shorts that can stand alone. And I'm just getting started!
Q. Do you proofread/edit all your own books or do you have someone that does
that for you?
A. This is an area of contention for many writers. Personally, I do an edit of my own work,
but I also have a few trusted readers that help greatly on this front as well. Much of the decision comes down to personal preference, but money can also play a factor.
Q. Where can the readers find your books?
A. My novel, “Coordinates For Murder”, is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, both
as an ebook and a paperback. My short stories are also available as ebooks on both of
these outlets. I have also put out all of my short stories as a collection, “Sometimes They
Scream”; this is available as an ebook and a paperback as well.
Q. Are you currently working on any new projects? Can you tell us a little about
A. I have a few projects in the works. Presently I'm working to finish up a new novel
tentatively titled “Body Hopping”. I'm excited with this for a number of reasons, and it's
a blast to write it and find out what happens with all of the characters along the way. It
started out as a short story idea, but when I finished it I just knew I needed to continue it.
So that short story is now the first chapter of the book. I also have started working on a
sequel to “Coordinates For Murder”. This book will expand on the geographic scope of the
first book, and incorporate some new characters and a wider world than was even hinted at
in the first book. I'm really excited to see how this sequel turns out. And, I have pages and
pages of story ideas that I want to get to, so I'm just getting started!
Q. What are some of the challenges you've faced when trying to get your name
out to readers?
A. Name recognition is the biggest hurdle that any new author has to face. How will you
make any sales if no one knows you exist? I'm convinced that longevity is the key to lasting
success in this business. Having a website is an easy, and I would argue necessary, first
step. Once you have that, then figure out your social media strategy. You don't have to
do everything, but at least find out the things that get you jazzed with social media, and
then use them. Facebook is the big one for me, but I also have a Twitter account and a
Google+ account. I'm not one that does a ton of marketing, mostly because I'm in the mode
of building my offerings. I want people to have a lot of choices from me, so that if they
read one thing, there are plenty of other pieces waiting for them to read. I do minimal
marketing and appearances, and they work – which is another whole discussion (how to
track your efforts to make sure they work).
Q. If you had the chance to do this journey all over again, would you change
anything about your books or yourself?
A. I would have forced myself to start sooner. Otherwise, I'm happy with how things have
unfolded for me thus far. I am where I am mostly due to choices that I'm making. I'm okay
with that right now, but I know plenty of other writers who do things very different from
me. That's okay too, because it works for them, and I'm just glad to know these successful
writers and am able to call them friends.
Q. How can readers get in contact with you or find out more about your books?
A. The best way to find out about me is to visit my website: Here I
have all of my books listed, with descriptions and links to where they can buy them. They
can also sign up to my email list to learn when new books are released, etc. Drop me a
note via my contact page, I'd love to hear from you!

Darren Kirby is a Wisconsin native, having lived in numerous different cities throughout his life.
From a young age he loved to read, devouring such classics as The Hardy Boys series and, as he got
older, branched out to Stephen King, John Grisham, and Tom Clancy. Often he thought it would be a
lot of fun to be a writer, but never imagined that he'd have the talent.
Fast-forward to 2008 when he and his wife were closing their coffee shop. As luck would have it,
a woman came in for the last author meet n' greet the shop hosted and she talked about getting
a writer's critique group together. Thinking it would be a good diversion while he sought a new
job, he agreed to get the group going. After a few years and numerous stories started (but not
finished), he finally managed to finish his first short story, "Pins And Dolls". After that he finished
his first novel, "Coordinates For Murder", as well as his second short story, "The Ritual". He is
currently working on the sequel to "Coordinates For Murder" and a new novel tentatively titled
“Body Hopping”.
Darren lives in a small community in northern Wisconsin with his wife of many years and 3 hilarious
cats. He loves talking writing and publishing, he's somewhat of a closet geek, and enjoys camping.
He encourages people to drop him a note through his website, or visit his Facebook page.
