Morning's Journey 1

MJnewcover213x340

Morning’s Journey

The greatest threat to Arthur & Gyan and their world is the enemy within.

In a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to protect.

But their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant son.

Morning’s Journey propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

About the Author Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, and assorted wildlife. People & creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins -- the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-20th century -- seem to be sticking around for a while yet.

Kim is a Seattle native (when she used to live in the Metro DC area, she loved telling people she was from "the other Washington") and a direct descendent of 20th century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim's novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband's ancestor, the 7th-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.

For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon's Dove Chronicles. She also writes other romantic historical fiction under the pseudonym "Kimberly Iverson."

Infernal Gates 1


Infernal Gates 2
Title: Infernal Gates
Series:
Author: Michael J. Webb
Publisher: Michael J. Webb Books
Description: Ethan Freeman, ex-Special Forces Ranger, wakes up to discover he is the sole survivor of a fiery commercial airline crash that killed his entire family. His nightmare is only beginning when he becomes the FBI’s prime suspect. Only Ethan knows he’s not a cold-hearted murderer, but he has no idea what happened to him–and why he alone survived.

He finds an unlikely ally in Sam Weaver, the NTSB Chief Investigator. An ex-military pilot, Sam senses Ethan is innocent. She tries to remain dispassionate in her investigation of the crash even as she finds herself attracted to the man who may be America=s worst homegrown mass-murderer. Neither Ethan nor Sam realize that shadowy spiritual forces are at work which will alter their lives forever.

A monstrous evil, imprisoned since the time of the Pharaohs, has been released by The Nine, a sinister group of powerful men and women who believe they are the direct descendants of the Anunnaki, ancient Sumerian gods. The demon they have unleashed intends to free The Destroyer from The Abyss, the angelic prison referred to in the Book of Revelation, and unleash a worldwide reign of terror and annihilation.

Facing impossible odds, time is running out for Ethan and all of humanity as he is drawn into an ever-deeper conspiracy–millennia in the making–and learns that he is the key to stopping The Nine. Will he overcome his deepest fears and find reserves of strength he never knew he had as he confronts pure evil in order to save himself and an unsuspecting world?

Excerpt:
Chapter 1


Less than ten minutes before we’re all dead, thought Ethan Freeman, and there is nothing I can do about it!

The stricken A320 Airbus--originally bound for St. Thomas and now limping back to Charlotte, North Carolina—shuddered like a bird suffering a mortal wound, then shook violently. Shouting and screaming from the rear of the plane drowned out the prayer of the older couple seated in front of them, “Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come—”

Lisa, Ethan’s wife, sobbed beside him. Across the aisle his eighteen year-old son, Josh, yelled, “Dad--are we going to crash?”

“No, son,” he lied. “We-are-not-going-to-crash.”

Megan, his sixteen year-old daughter, seated next to her brother, screamed, “The engine is on FIRE!”

Lisa clung to the seat arms so hard her fingers turned white and whimpered, “We’re all going to die--just like Greg,” then moaned, “I don’t want to die—”

Ethan reached for his wife’s hand as a thunderous explosion shook the plane and slammed him against the window, knocking breath out of him. He cried out in agony as the palm of his right hand was sliced open by a jagged metal clasp sticking up on the arm rest between him and Lisa. Blood gushed out of the ugly-looking wound and splattered the back of the seat in front of him . . .

#BookReview: Garrison's Creed by Cristin Harber #PromoBookTours

Garrison's Creed 1


Garrison's Creed 2
Title: Garrison's Creed
Series: Titan, Book 2
Author: Cristin Harber
Publisher: Mill Creek Press
Description: A SPY RUNNING FOR HER LIFE
Nicola is an injured CIA agent on the run from a failed undercover operation. Her escape plan shatters when she slams into the man who buried her a decade ago. Cash Garrison. Her first and only love. Now, sexier than her best memory and cradling a sniper’s rifle, he has questions she can’t answer. Why was she alive? And armed?

AND THE MAN SHE COULD NEVER SEE AGAIN
Cash is an elite member of a black ops organization, The Titan Group. He thought Nicola died his senior year of college and swore off love to focus on a decade of military missions. But when she shows up behind enemy lines, bleeding out and wielding a weapon, his heart and mind are unsure how to proceed.

BATTLE BETRAYAL TO SAVE THEMSELVES
Titan and the CIA join forces to uncover a mole hidden in a network of international terrorists and homegrown mobsters, teaming Cash and Nicola again. They fight old wounds and re-ignite sparks while closing in on a double agent. When disaster strikes, Nicola’s hidden past makes her the hunted target and Cash’s best kill shot may not be enough to save them.

Review: This is the second book by Cristin Harber that I have read, the first being Winter's Heat which is the first book in this series. I absolutely LOVED the first book, so when this one became available to review, I signed up right away. I was not disappointed at all. This book is absolutely fantastic. I had ventured away from reading romance without paranormal, but I will probably read everything Cristin Harber writes. Consider me her newest stalker...er, I mean fan. It might just be the fact that I grew up in a military family and these books feature your drool-worthy military man. It might just be that she's a fantastic writer. I don't know, but I loved it.

In this book, Cash Garrison discovers that his long lost college love is alive and well when he (and the whole world) thought she was dead. It's a tough thing to learn when looking through the scope of a sniper rifle aimed at the man standing next to her. As luck would have it though, not only is she alive, but she literally stumbles across his team of assassins in desperate need of help. Did I mention that Cash's spotter also happens to be the brother of this very woman? Nicola gives Cash and Roman, her brother, the surprise of their lives. The question is, why was she hanging all over a known illegal arms dealer?

Nicola has even more surprises for them other than her contacts. She has been "dead" for ten years and a lot has changed in her life. A lot changed for Cash as well. Both of them have to come to grips with each other though when they end up paired up for a secret mission, a mission Cash would love to tell her to sit out. She's a headstrong woman though, determined to teach these guys a lesson in gender equality while she proves that she can handle herself among criminals just as well as they can. I don't want to give too much away about the plot. It's a very exciting read (in more ways than one) and I love how the relationship between Cash and Nicola develops.

#ProductReview: Chicken from Zaycon Foods #USFamilyGuide

Zaycon 1
How does Zaycon Foods manage to provide such high quality super fresh meat and produce to its customers at such low prices? The answer is strength in numbers. And not our numbers, yours!

Zaycon Foods can sell its products at bulk rate prices to individual consumers and families because our unique sales event business model brings lots of people together, adding all their purchasing power into a combined bulk food purchase. And when you buy as part of a group that’s committing to such a large purchase, the power is in the hands of the purchaser! It’s the ultimate group buy in terms of both price and consumer empowerment.

You can pre-select exactly what you want to order from a given Zaycon sales event – sometimes you may want to stock up on our amazing meaty back ribs and sometimes it might be all about the Zaycon bacon – and then, on the day of the sales event, you and a whole big bunch of your neighbors will find yourselves in a nearby parking lot watching as an entire tractor trailer’s worth of high quality natural food is unloaded into all of your cars! You will be amazed at how quickly one of our refrigerated trucks goes from being filled with natural, fresh chicken or hundreds of gallons of grade A non-homogenized milk to being empty and back on its way to the farm!

Zaycon 2
A Zaycon Foods truck sales event often lasts less time than you would spend on a trip to the grocery store, yet you will leave with a whole lot more food than you’d get at the market, and for much better prices, too!

When you use the Zaycon Foods sales event as your preferred place to purchase meats, milk, and any of our other fine products, you get advantages even beyond the bulk pricing that comes with our special sales model. You also have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you’re going to get! A trip to the grocery store can involve wasted time wandering around looking for various foods spread out across the store; at a Zaycon Foods parking lot meat truck delivery (or milk or berries or fish delivery, too!) you have pre-ordered your foods, so all you have to do is show up and wait for our friendly staffers and volunteers to load up your car.

Zaycon 3
Also, unlike in the grocery store, the prices you will pay for a Zaycon Foods product are locked in on our website, so you will know how much you are going to spend before you have committed to a purchase.

At a supermarket, you might pay one price for chicken on one day, and then a higher price on another day. With Zaycon, you decide that you want to order a case of our fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts, you check the price and then you commit to it, knowing that from that moment on, we are committed to getting you your fresh, natural food!

Zaycon 4
To Get Started Click on this link https://www.zayconfoods.com/refer/zf237723


Review: A long while back I wrote a post advertising Zaycon Foods. As a thank you for my post, I received a bunch of chicken breasts to try out, with the promise that I would write a product review after I received it. Well the long wait is over and I can finally let you know what my family thinks about their chicken. Let's start by saying that I am not crazy about chicken. I eat a lot of it because it is one of the healthiest meats you can eat. It's extremely low in fat and can be made a billion different ways. However, most of the time I feel like chicken tastes like chicken no matter how you cook it. You may find that this belief colors my review a little bit, but don't let it stop you from trying out this product.

How this works is that you order your food online through Zaycon's website. Then they have "events" in your area where a truck goes to a particular location and you pick up your food directly from the truck. If you miss you event time, there are normally others within driving distance that you can reschedule your pickup. I know that because I *almost* had to do that. Sadly, I was not used to driving on through my city at the time that I needed to go through it to get to my event. I drove up to the location just in time to watch the Zaycon truck pull out of the parking lot. I thought about following him, but seeing as I was going in the opposite direction of the truck, I couldn't catch up to him. Not knowing what else to do, I called their help line which was conveniently given to me in a series of email reminders for the event. The lady on the phone informed me that the driver was going to his hotel for a few moments and that I could meet him in his hotel parking lot to get my chicken. Lucky for me, the hotel was merely feet away from the original drop off location. I admit I felt really weird about doing this. At one point when I was one the phone trying to find the hotel, my phone dropped the call and the lady actually called me back to make sure I was able to find the hotel and truck for my pickup. Since I felt so weird about doing this, she stayed on the phone with me almost the whole time.

This was the first part of my Zaycon experience, and I must say that I was very impressed. The staff is super friendly and really there to help you out. The delivery guy was easy to deal with. The experience was positive in every way. I received my chicken and simply drove home with very little hassle.

The next thing that happened to me was completely my fault. I got the chicken home, opened the box, saw individual bags containing chicken, and thought "Great. It comes individually packaged." This was not entirely correct. I stuck the whole box in the freezer and learned when I wanted to get out 1 lb of chicken that the chicken was divided into four bags. In order to get out a chicken breast, I had to thaw 1/4 of the box of chicken because I didn't open the bags to make sure they were individually packaged. Let me say, I have ate a lot of chicken recently. Once you thaw out meat, you can't refreeze it. Of course this has been a major concern because it will only last in the fridge for a certain amount of time as well. The question is, how long will it last in the fridge? Honestly, I don't know. I am going to find out if I can go through approximately 10 lbs of chicken before it goes bad. We have made it to day eight and it is still nearly as fresh tasting as when I brought it home. The moral of this story is that when you place your order, divide up whatever you get before throwing it in the freezer and Zaycon chicken lasts a LONG time in the fridge compared to what I normally buy.

Now how does the chicken look/taste? It's actually pretty darn good chicken. Coming from me, I think that says a lot. I haven't exactly been, "Yay. More chicken tonight," but I certainly have enjoyed the meals all week long enough to not say, "Man I want something other than chicken." These breasts are the size of a giant turkey breast. They are HUGE. There's very little fat on them and every meal I have made has surprised me with how juicy and tender the chicken turns out. We literally ate chicken every night last week. It really is that good of quality that you can do that without dreading meal time. I have been amazed.

Morning's Journey 1

MJnewcover213x340Morning’s Journey

The greatest threat to Arthur & Gyan and their world is the enemy within.

In a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to protect.

But their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant son.

Morning’s Journey propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

#ProductReview: PinkBlush Maternity Clothes Review #giveaway

Disclosure: I was given a sweater for the purpose of this honest review. I received no other compensation for this post. This post contains external links to help you learn more about this product.

PinkBlush Maternity 1


As winter quickly approaches and my due date as well, I find myself in need of winter maternity clothes. When I was pregnant with my son, it was winter during my first trimester which means I wore my normal clothes during that time. This pregnancy has me in my third trimester through December. I own several sweaters that *might* fit, but I really wanted to get a maternity sweater or two in case my others won't work. When I was given the opportunity to try out some maternity clothing from PinkBlush Maternity, I jumped on it! I was so thrilled to see a maternity clothing company in need of people like me. I can honestly say that I immediately went to the sweater section of the website and totally skipped the bottoms, dresses, active, and nursing sections when picking out what I wanted to review. Here's what I picked out:

I know it is a small picture, but I wanted you to get an idea of what it looks like on their model before seeing it on me. All of the clothes on their site are a size small in the pictures, but I had to get a size large. I was concerned about how different it would look on me since I am not a perfect pregnancy model. They have a pretty comprehensible size chart to help you figure out what size you need for everything. My pictures are crappy, but trust me that they are easy to use.

When I first received my sweater, I was pleasantly surprised by how soft the material is. This is one of those sweaters that feels like it is going to hold together very well. If you are a sweater person, you know what I mean by that. I have sweaters made of Chenille and honestly something else like Chenille but I don't know what it is called, that are super duper soft to the touch, but fuzz starts falling out as soon as I wash them. You absolutely cannot dry those sweaters in the dryer because they fall apart. The sweater from PinkBlush Maternity is NOT one of those sweaters. It feels durable and yet still soft. I love the feel of it.

So how did it hold up wearing for an entire day? It did pretty darn well. I was very comfortable in the sweater all day long. I loved that people actually looked at me and really knew that I was pregnant (I have a tendency to wear baggy clothes that don't show off the belly bump). The only complaint I have is that the little rhinestones were falling off through out the day (see picture below). Now if i could stop rubbing my belly, that might not have happened. I wasn't rubbing hard enough that I thought it would be a problem. I just would look down from time to time and notice that another one was missing. That said, I have had similar issues with other sweaters too. The material just doesn't hold embellishments that aren't sewn on very well. I would love the sweater even without all the rhinestones. I am very pleased with it and am probably going to have to get more now that it is cold outside.
