M B Feeney FB Page 1k 'likes' Mega Giveaway & Free Download!!!



To celebrate M B Feeney reaching the huge milestone of 1000 'likes' on her Facebook page, for the next 7 days, a wonderful group of authors, graphic artists and promoters are running a Mega Giveaway to mark the occasion.

For the next 2 days, (30th November-1st December 2013), M B's latest release, Honour, will also be available to download for free!!

Summary:

The world is filled with people destined to help and to serve. Doctors, nurses, police, and firefighters—each and every day, these special people work to help others in times of need. Often, this means putting their own lives at risk in order to do their jobs. They give of themselves to benefit society, and they do it without any expectation of thanks.

And then there is the military…

These are the men and women who don’t head home to their families and safe homes to relax at the end of a shift. They are on the front lines, far from home and often fighting someone else’s battles because it is the right thing to do.  Military families struggle to cope with the constant worry and the long periods of separation, staying strong to support those who serve in everything they do, and often are left to pick up the pieces when the highest price is paid.

Servicemen and women are heroes in the purest sense of the word. Even when the world’s gone mad and their hearts are breaking, one thing remains unchanged. 

They have honour.

Cover Reveal - The Northern Gate by J C Clarke

Today we have a cover reveal for J.C. Clarke's debut release:
 The Northern Gate 
This is book one of The Edelyn Legacy.



Title: The Northern Gate
Author: J.C. Clarke
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
Release Date: December 06, 2013

Summary:
According to the Bible, God created the world in seven days, but what if the beginning happened before Humankind documented it for posterity?

Humans didn’t see everything clearly, because they didn’t understand. They turned away in fear, forgot the beings that had come to Earth and, over time, the Seraphim became nothing but a legend, a bedtime story. Corruption and greed, bred from hatred and evil, spread across the face of the earth as Humans evolved and developed. It was in this filth, and amongst the seven deadly sins, that Tabitha Morgan was born and kept alive, hidden in plain sight from the darkness.

For seventeen years, Tabitha thrived under her grandmother’s guardianship, living a normal life and not knowing the truth about her heritage or the roots from which she came.

That all changes the day a handsome stranger named Nathan walks into her life. Will the ancient secrets he holds be enough to earn her trust? Is it the Light, or does Darkness await them beyond The Northern Gate?

Cover Reveal and Guest Interview with M. B. Feeney


Welcome! Another (awesome) writer in our midst!

*blush*

Tell us about you! When did you start writing?

Ever since I learnt to read and write, I’ve had a love for stories. I used to read all the time. It soon got to the point, when I was about 8, that I wanted to tell my own. The first story I ever wrote was called The Birthday Invitation. It was about a girl called Sally who’d received an invitation to a birthday party, and couldn’t decide what to buy for a present. There was even a crayon illustration to go with it. I’ve been writing, on and off, ever since.

Aside from reading, what do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I listen to a lot of music. I literally have either the radio, or my iTunes, on and it’s just there, in the background. I play with my kids as much as I can as now they’re both at school, I don’t get to spend as much quality time with them, so we make the most of the weekends and the evenings. Even if it’s reading a book together. I also dabble in photography as another creative outlet and am aiming to mix this in with my writing by using my own shots as cover photos (which I did for Just Like in the Movies).

Tell us three random facts about you that your readers don’t know.

I’m addicted to chewing gum. I have to have it in my pocket or my bag all the time. I’m a terrible procrastinator. If I can find something else to do instead of what I’m supposed to be, then I’ll do it. Even cleaning. Uhm, I also dance around my kitchen like an idiot, just to make my kids laugh. – Yes, I have no shame in admitting that!

What inspired you to write Honour?

I’ve answered this question in various guises quite a lot over the last couple of months, yet my answer will always be the same. I have the utmost respect for anyone who will put themselves on the frontline of a war for their own, or more often than not, another country’s wellbeing. My family has a long and complex history linked to the armed forces her in the UK, and I wanted to ‘honour’ that. I just hope I have done them justice.

What are you planning to do next?

I have a novel (or 2) in the works, which I can’t wait to get back to writing. I hope to have it finished, and ready for publication, by next summer. I just hope that when I actually have the time to write, I can.


Thanks so much for joining us! Now for all the details:


 
M. B. Feeney is excited to present the cover for her upcoming release, Honour, a collection of 6 short stories with a military theme. 

Released on 1st November in remembrance of those who have given their lives as part of their job to protect others in times of unrest.
Summary:

The world is filled with people destined to help and to serve. Doctors, nurses, police, and firefighters—each and every day, these special people work to help others in times of need. Often, this means putting their own lives at risk in order to do their jobs. They give of themselves to benefit society, and they do it without any expectation of thanks.

And then there is the military…

These are the men and women who don’t head home to their families and safe homes to relax at the end of a shift. They are on the front lines, far from home and often fighting someone else’s battles because it is the right thing to do.  Military families struggle to cope with the constant worry and the long periods of separation, staying strong to support those who serve in everything they do, and often are left to pick up the pieces when the highest price is paid.

Servicemen and women are heroes in the purest sense of the word. Even when the world’s gone mad and their hearts are breaking, one thing remains unchanged. 

They have honour.

Don't forget to add Honour to your 'To read' shelf over on Goodreads

About the Author:

M. B. Feeney is an army brat who finally settled down in Birmingham, UK with her other half, two kids and a dog.  Currently at university studying for her BA (Hons) in primary teaching, she procrastinates on her assignments by listening to music of all genres and trying to get ‘just one more paragraph’ written on whichever WIP is open. She is also a serious doodler and chocoholic.  Writing has been her one true love ever since she could spell, and publishing is the final culmination of her hard work and ambition.

Her publishing career began with two novellas, and she currently has a novel underway whilst Honour, a compilation of her own military based shorts, is available from 1st November 2013. Always having something on the go can often lead to block which eventually gets dissolved by good music and an even better book.

Cover Reveal - Into the Storm by Melanie Moreland


It's my pleasure to be part of the cover reveal for Melanie Moreland's upcoming release:
'Into the Storm' 

Publication date: Late 2013
Genre: Adult, Romance.

Synopsis

She is a woman on the run. Pain, loneliness and terror are what she is leaving. Where she is headed doesn’t matter as long as it’s away from the hell her life has become.

Joshua Bennett is trapped in a prison of his own making by the memories of his past. Traumatized and isolated, he is a reclusive writer, living a quiet, lonely life, his only companion his dog, Bear. It is what he knows, what he has accepted to be his life.

One dark night, one huge storm, and one ice patch brings them together. He finds himself with an unexpected houseguest with no memory. She wakes up a stranger to herself and the man watching her. Even more mysterious is the lack of any sort of identification with her or in her car. She is an enigma to both of them.

Trapped by the storm and isolated from the outside world, they slowly open up, learning to trust and love, until the world once again shows up, threatening the fragile peace of their newly discovered world, and tearing them apart.

There are many twists and turns as they struggle to find each other, overcoming both the mental and physical elements that keep them apart.

A story about overcoming our fears, finding love and learning to live again.



Author Bio

Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her husband and fur children. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works at a local university and for its football team.  Her (box) office job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and somewhat challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties and socialize, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after.  When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines, to let her share them with her readers.
