Redemption Book Blast: Giveaway for a $50 Amazon Gift Card and 5 Books!

Redemption (Legends of Graham Mansion)

Be careful what you wish for.

When the breakup of her family forces Grae White’s mother to move her two children from their privileged city life to her hometown in the mountains of Virginia, all Grae wants is to be invisible in her new life. But that’s rather hard when everyone knows that her father is the latest headline-grabbing white-collar criminal, the most popular boy in school wants to take Grae to the prom, and then there’s the fact that she lives in a haunted mansion. It would make anyone want to get away. Grae soon learns that a simple wish can reveal an unknown ability.

Something more than curiosity spirals Grae back in time to seek the truth in the tragedy of a 200-year-old murder. Along the way, she learns about history, happiness, and heartache in the lives of those who have lived on the property, including her own family. Her first journey reveals secrets that will lead Grae to further explore the legends of Graham Mansion.

REDEMPTION is Book One in the Legends of Graham Mansion series. Look for the second story in the series, AMBITION, in spring 2013.

First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch Book Blast! Giveaway for a $50 Amazon Gift Card or PayPal Cash

First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

"What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"

Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.

But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimensionally, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.

Now, he's in something called "The United States of America," and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or has he somehow changed history?

If so, can he return the world to what he believes is "normal" or must he live in this strange world he created?



"Sam continues to weave his magic as a storyteller. I always find myself anxious to find out what will happen next and what kind of twist will befall the adventurers. It helps to be familiar with the places that the heroines go, which adds to the story."
~Labdaddy, Texas

"I've had a few very unproductive but enjoyable days thanks to Samuel Ben White. If you haven't read Sam's books, you have been missing a treat. These were funny, suspenseful, spiritual and kept you turning the pages."
~Karen S.

"Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your books. I have a Kindle, and I have purchased all of the Garison Fitch novels. I am in Saudi Arabia, and your books have really helped take me away from here."
~Scott, Saudi Arabia

Saving Time

Two years ago, Garison Fitch traveled through time and rewrote history. An accident in the eighteenth century created a whole new world, and even gave Garison a wife he had never met before. Now, he’s got a daughter, and he’s coming to enjoy this world he created -- until he’s attacked by men masquerading as Indians, a funeral procession from out of the past enlists his help, and a tree grows from sapling to full-grown in a matter of minutes, threatening his daughter’s very life. Time itself is unraveling, and Garison’s trips through time seem to be the cause. Garison must go back in time once again and keep himself from making the original trip that started the problem. But he can’t use his time machine to go back. How does one sew up a rip in time?

Lost Time

Jason Kerrigan and Brownwyn Dalmouth are pilots with the Republic of Texas Army Air Corps. A world war is going on, and bombs have just brought an end to Crockett Air Field in south Texas. Jason and Bronwyn, though, are called away from the battle to be test pilots for a new aircraft that they're told will bring the war to an end. The experimental craft lives up to expectations in early tests, but then it lands them somewhere it never should have sent them. Another place? Another time? Another dimension? Somehow, they've taken a trip to the future and changed the past. Or did they? The answer to their change of reality may be known to a Justice of the Peace in Colorado named Garison Fitch. To figure it out, though, Garison may have to team up with his least favorite person: Bat Garrett.

Incredible Dreams Book Tour: Giveaway for a $50 Amazon Gift Card and Signed Book!

Incredible DreamsIncredible Dreams

INCREDIBLE DREAMS is the story of a modern-day ghost whisperer who travels through time to save the life of a WWII fighter pilot and ends up jeopardizing her own existence.

Izzy Miller prefers to call herself a spiritual therapist because she thinks it makes her sound more professional than plain old ghost-whisperer. She expects her latest project to be quick and easy because exorcising military personnel is pretty routine. But there’s nothing easy or routine about Captain Jack Baker -- he’s a rather forgetful spirit and somewhat mischievous. And even though he’s intrigued by the US Government’s latest attempt to remove him from the only place he can ever remember being, he has no intentions of going anywhere.

Plans to exorcise Jack are quickly sidelined when Izzy discovers a portal into the past inside her dreams and sets out to change his fate. Trouble is, when she gets back there, she can’t remember anything but her name. She still sees ghosts, but is far less accepting of her gift. And, to make matters worse, a demonic force pretending to be the forgetful heroine’s sister has her own plans -- to steal Izzy’s soul.

Crossroads Excerpt:

He held me gently with both of his arms and wings this time. All I needed was his touch, for him to hold me that way; it made all the difference in the world. I was safe again. Without thought, I turned toward him. The look in his eyes was so tempting, telling me that he wanted me too. I knew it was impossible for him to want and need me the same way, but his eyes told me something else. The depth of my yearning and what I wanted to do at this very moment was undeniable.

I leaned toward him and tenderly placed a kiss on his supple lips to thank him. It was an innocent kiss. What was the harm in just one small kiss? I was extremely surprised that he didn’t push me away. I was even more surprised at myself. I was never the type to make the first move.

“Thank you for saving me,” I whispered, looking straight into his soulful eyes, as something came over me. Uncontrollable heat ran through my body. He was right. It was dangerous, but it was me who couldn’t control myself. His eyes gave me permission to continue, so I gave him another kiss, but slower and longer this time. He kissed me back, but with much hesitation. His lips were warm and sweet like honeysuckle, just how I imagined they would be. The warmth spread all over my body like a blazing fire.

Still holding me, he pulled me away with a sudden jerk, his eyes piercing into mine with anger. His left hand was tightly wrung around my hair and the other gripping my shirt so I could feel the tightness from it. Panting, wanting more of him, I forgot how to breathe, and so did he. His eyes, still fierce with anger, gripped me even tighter as he slightly pushed and pulled me, fighting and uncertain of what he wanted to do. Feeling petrified, I had to prepare myself for the consequence of my actions, for I knew I had crossed the line.

Also part of the series:


As the alkins head back to Crossroads, Claudia leads her normal life, but not for long. Having a special soul, Claudia attracts danger, and she soon finds out who Gamma asked to watch over her. The Twelve, known as Divine Elders on Earth, are very much involved when they find out that Aliah, one of the gods’ first angels, escaped from the Abyss when the gates were opened by Aden. Needing Claudia's soul to escape the only place Aliah can reside -- a place between Heaven and Earth -- he sends his demons in search of all Claudia Emersons on Earth. Taking her soul will enable him to be released from Between and cross over to Crossroads, which would give him immense power. As more secrets are revealed, Claudia learns about the venators -- nephilim, demon hunters. Now two opposing forces must work together in order to save Claudia and humanity from the most dangerous angel ever created. But along the way, trust becomes a big issue. Will love be enough to keep Claudia and Michael together? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice? Who will betray them all?


Torn between the past she can't remember and a future she isn’t ready for, Claudia feels at a loss. With unanswered questions, she is certain there is more to her past than just being a venator. Finding the missing pieces in her life won’t be easy because duty calls. When mysterious dark shadows get released, an apocalypse sets in motion. The venators and the alkins must work together once again. Knowing Claudia would be the key to destroying the demons that were released, a familiar stranger appears to protect her. Drawn to the beautiful angel, Claudia finds she must unravel the mysteries of her past in order to help save the world. Who is the angel assisting her, and why does she feel a strong connection to him? Time is running out. Will she discover all the secrets before it’s too late?

Author Mary Ting:
Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing Crossroads was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother. It was inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl.

Imperfectly Beautiful Book Blast: Giveaway for a $100 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash

Imperfectly Beautiful, by Diony George

At 1:30 am, in New York City, Regan Wright is ripped out of a sound sleep with a jolt -- her heart thuds in her ears and her face feels flushed. Straining to hear anything out of the ordinary, she fumbles to turn on the bedside lamp. Nothing seems out of place. Suddenly, her stomach twists in knots -- it’s her identical twin, Rebecca. Something is terribly wrong...

Though twins, Rebecca and Regan couldn’t be more different. Independent and outspoken, Regan chose a high-profile career as a fashion designer in New York City. Despite her hard-earned success, Regan’s become disillusioned by the glamour and the glitz. She’s tired of coming home to a lonely penthouse apartment welcomed only by her cat and has all but given up on ever finding “Mr. Right.”

Steady and reliable, Rebecca chose to be a wife and stay-at-home mom. From the very first moment she met James Conrad -- tall and muscular with eyes as blue as a cloudless sky -- she was captivated. Married and four children later, Rebecca’s life is not what she expected. Her marriage has lost its shine, and her sweet babies have become challenging and often unappreciative children.

Both Rebecca and Regan must discover that a higher power has the answers to what matters most, but when a serial killer strikes nearby, and his victims look eerily similar to the twins, will it be too late?

Praise for Imperfectly Beautiful
“5 Stars! Great novel-romance with suspense. Captures your attention from the very beginning ... then difficult to put down ... A good solid read!”
~Booklover, Amazon review
“This was a great book. I could relate to Rebecca and the trials she was going through with her marriage and her children. I feel this way at times too. I liked the suspense, and it was enough to keep my hooked…”
~K. Neilson, Utah
“I enjoyed the development of the characters. Lots of dialogue took me right into the everyday lives and struggles of each person. The underlying story of the unsolved murders of women who look like the twin sisters simmers through out the chapters until it finally boils over into an exciting ending! I recommend it!”
~J.T. Bolla, Washington

Calling All Book Club Members! Enter This Giveaway for a Signed Book Club Set (8 Books) of “stripped down running,” by Andrea Nair, Plus a Skype Call with the Author! (Open WW)

Do you belong to a book club? Author Andrea Nair is offering an amazing opportunity! One lucky winner will receive 8 signed copies of her book, stripped down running, for his/her book club plus a Skype call with her after your members have read the book! First, enjoy this exclusive interview with Andrea as she shares about this book and her inspiration for writing it. Then enter for your chance to win this awesome prize in the Rafflecopter form.

What is stripped down running about?
The book, stripped down running, written by a therapist, is a psychological novel that highlights the impact parents have, and the wild ride that can occur when adults try to outrun strong negative experiences from their childhood.

As a young adult, the heroine Hannah Friesen tries distancing herself from her past, not understanding why she is compelled to do things that hurt her. Those close to her find her amusing and endearing, yet long for her to overcome the darkness they see in her eyes.

This novel narrates how love can be enmeshed with pain in families, the great power these two have to shape our adult lives, and how we can be empowered to do something about this.

How did you get the idea for this book?
I got the idea for this book initially from frustration -- I was getting angry with all the “happy endings” most books had. I felt there was a lack of authenticity in popular books and wanted to create a story that demonstrates real resilience.

This book is fiction, but is there a lesson or message you hope readers will learn by reading this book?
Yes, this book is commercial fiction, but I do have two messages I hope readers might learn from reading it. The first is that we can’t underestimate the strong negative influence parents have when they are hard on their children. Our parents’ generation often did what was socially appropriate at the time, which was punishment to “teach” respect and obedience. We need to be able to say that this is not okay anymore and it hurts kids. Also, there needs to be an understanding that this harm has happened, but we still love our parents, knowing most didn’t use this discipline style intentionally.

The second message I hope readers absorb is that it is possible to heal from harsh experiences and really turn our lives around. With the support and encouragement of others, we can find the courage and stamina to do so.

Is this your first book? If not, what else have you written?
This is my first fictional novel. Since starting this book, I have also written a short parenting eBook called, Connect with Your Heart, Connect with Your Child.

When did you start writing? Do you have any advice for beginning writers?
I began writing stripped down running seven years ago. My advice for beginning writers is to read a lot, try to get involved in a writing group, and start off with a writing workshop in their favoured genre. I would also try to connect with your favourite authors through social media.

Do you plan a sequel or future books?
I am planning to write more books! Right now I am taking time to decide if that is a sequel to this one or a memoir.

Do you have a website? How can we order this book?
My book, stripped down running, is available through all the usual on-line outlets: Amazon, Chapters (in Canada), Barnes & Noble, and also for the iPad. The links to all those vendors are on my website at


Author Andrea Nair has generously offered to give away a book club set (8 signed books) of stripped down running, PLUS a Skype call with her when your book group meets after reading it! This offer is open worldwide! To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway will end on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST.

Lacey Weatherford was born in Ft. Meade, Maryland, while her father was serving in the military. She has been a lifelong resident of Arizona, spending most of her time growing up in the small rural town of Clay Springs.

It was while she was attending the small country school in Clay Springs that she read her first "big" book at the age of eight. It was a Nancy Drew novel, and Lacey was instantly hooked. She read every book that she could find in the series and decided that she wanted to write stories, too.

Lacey spent a lot of time at the library from that time forward, even volunteering in her later teen years and early twenties. She would don a crazy clown outfit for the Friends of the Library fundraisers in an effort to help get the new town library built.

When she and her husband moved away from the area, Lacey took the opportunity to take some creative writing classes at the local college to help further along her interests. Several years later, they were blessed with the opportunity to move back to Clay Springs with their family. The town had finally succeeded in building their library, and Lacey had the opportunity to be President of the Friends of the Library for a very short time, before relocating.

Lacey and her family still live in the White Mountains of Arizona, where she continues to write young adult novels that have a fantasy/fairytale or paranormal bent to them, as well as being sure to include a great romantic storyline!
