New Adult Authors - Fall Promotion and Giveaway - Magan Vernon




Honor student, manager at the campus coffee shop, owner of an impressive sweater collection – Melanie Wilder has it all together. Then John “John Boy” Walden strolls into her life wearing nothing more than an impish grin and all-too-revealing loin cloth.

Soon, make-out sessions replace homework, lust triumphs over work. And to further crumble her perfect world, an unexpected phone call threatens to take away everything she’s worked for.

Now, as Melanie struggles to pick up the pieces, she realizes that John may be the only one to put her life back together…unless he shatters it first.

**This is not a sequel to The Only Exception. It's a companion novel with two characters from the first book. You don't need to read The Only Exception to understand this book.**







Magan Vernon is a Young Adult and New Adult writer who lives with her family in the insurance capital of the world. She is in a very serious, fake relationship with Adam Lambert and constantly asks her husband to wear guyliner. He still refuses. She also believes her husband is secretly an alien, disguised as a southern gentleman.

Spooktacular Halloween Blog Hop


Welcome to the Spooktacular Halloween Blog Hop! Every day there will be a new post and every post will have a word in red that you will need to complete a sentence in order to enter to win the big giveaway. 

It’s that time of the year!  The time to watch lots of scary movies, read scary books, visit haunted houses and of course, eat lots of candy.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and yes, it is a holiday (even if we still have to go to work and/or school)!

What you might be surprised to find out is that although I love scary and spooky movies and books, it's a whole different story when spooky characters come to life.  Put me in a room with clowns and/or creepy dolls, and you will hear the SCREAMS from far, far away. 

The sad part is that I seem to attract those things.  Just earlier this month, I was at Monster Fest where clowns seemed to enjoy staring at me.  I even have pics to prove it.

I also have characters from the Academy of the Fallen who creep me out.  Yep, my own characters… I wrote them and yet, I would not want to be left alone in a room with some of them.

What about you?  What are you scared of?

New Adult Authors - Fall Promotion and Giveaway - Jennifer Lane





In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost.

Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer's door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.










People fascinate the psychologist/author (psycho author) known as Jennifer Lane. Her therapy clients talk to her all day long about their dreams and secrets, and her characters tell her their stories at night. Jen delights in peeling away the layers to scrutinize their psyches and emotions. But please rest assured, dear reader, she isn’t psychoanalyzing you right now. She’s already got too many voices in her head!

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is the author of The Conduct Series—-romantic suspense for adult readers—-and recently completed the third and final installment: On Best BehaviorStreamline is her first foray into writing for young and new adults, but she’s found this sort of writing even more fun. A former college swimmer, Jen was able to put a lot of her own experiences into this book. 
Whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and hanging out with her sisters and their families in Chicago and Hilton Head.

New Adult Authors - Fall Promotion and Giveaway - Karen-Anne Stewart






    Shattered when Raina runs after his marriage proposal, Kas is hell-bent to find her and bring her home, where she belongs.  He will bend every law necessary to do so, willing to do anything to protect Raina from her demons and the men who haunt her, going as far as placing his career and life on the line to save hers.  Raina will give up everything she has worked so hard to achieve, even flee the country to keep Kas from the wrath and powerful reach of her abusive father.
    In the midst of the FBI team closing in on the Ghost, another ghost from Raina's past taunts her, promising that she will be his.  Meanwhile, a different trafficking ring is gaining strength in New Jersey.  Michael solicits Raina's help, needing her smooth, sultry voice to win the audition for the new singer in the ring leader's swanky night club. Raina knows her life is in jeopardy with the dangers of being undercover, but she is blindsided when she discovers that it's her heart that is threatened with a mortal blow.   
    Raina tries to heal from the nightmares of her dark past as the grisly bodies of innocent victims surface when the team gets closer to discovering the identity of the man responsible for the infuriatingly clever and powerful slavery ring.  When Raina finally comes face to face with the Ghost, he quickly engulfs her in a twisted game of cat and mouse, delivering a veiled threat as he slips through her fingers.  As the ghosts of her past and present ensnare her in their deadly web, Raina realizes the danger has just begun. 


 Karen-Anne Stewart has always enjoyed reading and how a book can sweep her far away, engrossing her deep into the story.  She has enjoyed writing from an early age and became interested in becoming an author after one of her college courses.  Her debut novel, Saving Rain: The First Novel in The Rain Trilogy, was published in January, 2013.  Healing Rain: The Second Novel in The Rain Trilogy was published in July, 2013.
   When Karen-Anne is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her first love, her family.  She shares a home with her husband and daughter, their two dogs and their cat.  She enjoys reading, hiking, and visiting new places.  She plans to continue writing and sharing her stories with her readers for many years.

New Adult Authors - Fall Promotion and Giveaway - Lila Atkinson



   Zadie Parker is all about reinventing herself. Switching colleges after a humiliating freshman year is her latest upgrade. She’s excited to be living with her two best friends and looking forward to her new summer lifeguarding job. Life seems headed toward more stable waters, or so she
thinks. On her first day of work Zadie comes head to head with her biggest regret, Henry Fletcher.

   Henry’s the stupidly adorable boy Zadie crushed hard on in high school. The one too chicken to make his move three years before. He’s the reason
Zadie found the courage to move from the sidelines to being a risk-taker. But calling attention to yourself isn’t without consequences, especially when every co-ed has a camera phone.

   Hot summer days and warm, tension-fueled nights set the backdrop for Zadie and Henry to figure out if there is any chance they can heal while navigating the landmines of Zadie's life.




    Lila Atkinson worked at an ice cream shop for 6 months during college. It sucked. To this day she can't look at mint chocolate chip ice cream without having a panic attack.

    To ward off the hot, southern, summer days, Lila spends time at her pool daydreaming about lifeguards and summer romances. She has a husband, two girls and some pets.
