What are you reading this weekend?

Another Friday has arrived! And this means the weekend is here and I can squeeze in some extra reading time. For me, I’ll be in the world of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’…with a little touch of Lois Lowry on the side. But what about you – what’s on your reading agenda this weekend??

I have a few freebies you can check out that I’ve read myself or are on my TBR! And don’t forget – I HOPE YOU FIND ME and DYING to FORGET are free for you as well! Read on for some more free books from a few of my author friends…

KSHaigwoodSAVE MY SOUL, by K.S. Haigwood

Kendra Larkin had everything going in the right direction. Her life was seemingly perfect, and she wouldn’t have changed a thing about it. Unfortunately, the course of her life was about to be forever altered. A tragic rappelling accident lands her on Dr. Adam Chamberlain’s operating table.

She agrees to a deal proposed by a guardian angel to help save the soul of the man who is both her doctor and soulmate. If she is successful, she gets to keep her life. However, she later learns that it isn’t just her life that’s in jeopardy, but her soul as well.

Even with the help of her handsome guardian angel, Rhyan, it seems there is no happy ending in sight. Torn between her newly discovered love of Rhyan, and the undeniable attraction she has for Adam, Kendra finds herself at a crossroad. With Adam’s steadfast rejection of God, and his guardian demon conspiring against her, she fears her soul may already be lost.

Will she find a way to overcome the evil her life is suddenly burdened with? Or will Adam’s guardian demon win both their souls and make Kendra his own personal puppet in Hell?

MStorkCONNER, by Miranda Stork

Erin is a young psychologist, with no time for anything but her work, and unable to remember anything about her past. She leads an uneventful life, but a lonely one, in which she secretly wishes for a soulmate…

Conner is an unusual patient who approaches her, thrusting her into a strange world of darkness that runs beneath our own. He believes himself to be a creature of legend-a werewolf. But he also draws Erin with a roguish charm, and an irresistible feeling that seems to bind them together…

Conner desperately tries to save her from an unknown evil that pursues her with a relentless passion that crosses centuries, an evil that once took her very soul away, somewhere in Erin’s lost memories.

As she becomes more entwined in a series of events that will remind her of who she really is, will she make it away from the oncoming darkness unscathed…?

FINDING CINDERELLA, by Colleen Hoover

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love has conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. But Daniel soon realizes that fairytales don’t exist, and unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

CUPCAKES, TRINKETS, and OTHER DEADLY MAGIC, by Meghan Ciana Doidge

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

I WAS A DRUMMER SHE WAS A DANCER, by Steven M. Thomas

An autobiography about young love that ends up lasting a lifetime, I was a drummer she was a dancer is a raw, romantic true story we can all relate to. Set in a small Midwest college in 1978, the author meets and falls in love with a beautiful young dancer from the east coast. They are from two different worlds, but their love for each other bridges the huge gaps in distance, and socio-economic backgrounds. She was from a fairly well to do and educated family and he was the first person in his family to attend college. She was raised in a house that had been in her family for several generations. And he lived in a mobile home that happened to be next door to the college. But when they met, none of that mattered and fireworks lit up the sky. “In just a few minutes, my life would be changed forever,” the author explains. “It was like the Beatles.”

Find Me Series…Update

It’s been quiet on here lately and that’s all MY fault. See, I’ve been busy trying to finish the Sci-Fi Fantasy I started after wrapping up Dying to Return. When an idea comes and then won’t LEAVE, and jotting down notes doesn’t keep the Muse at bay, it must be written. What this means, however, is that readers of the Find Me series have been waiting (some more patiently than others, lol) for the third installment to be released. For that to happen, I must actually write it first.

I know now, having two series in the works, when it is time to begin the next book. Because of Hutch & A’ris, Find Me 3 has been simmering in my brain for some time and now it’s about to boil over – in a sticky and wet mess right on my laptop. The Muse is anxious to finish up the Dry Lands and get Hutch and A’ris and their story out there…but the Muse is also so fixated on Riley that I dream about her post-pandemic world weekly. When I get a free moment (which is rare, because I have children, and children demand attention – constantly) I find myself lost in thought about what Riley is up to. The story was outlined, something I don’t do with every book, and now I’m tempted to go back and change up half of it – just take my pen and make ugly lines through pages of notes. Why? Because the more I think about this book, the better the ideas get and the more ‘OMGOSH, THAT MUST HAPPEN’ moments come to me. Usually at 1:00 in the morning, or five minutes before dawn, when no sane person should be awake. Thank god for cell phones with note apps.

Just as I’ve done before, I’ll take a short break after the Dry Lands is published, because I have a ridiculously long TBR list on my Kindle and I’d like to read a few things before writing again. But the break will be short, because y’all know what’s coming next: Find Me 3, or you can refer to it by the working title, Hope Will Find a Way.

If you’ve NO idea which books I’m talking about – catch up by reading I Hope You Find Me, then Lost and Found. Both are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. What will you get out of these books? That’s up to you. If you like post-apocalyptic stories, that end-of-the-world type of suspense mixed in with a little bit of love and a pinch of the paranormal, this series should be fun for you. Plus, one of the main characters is a dog based off of my own adorable and spastic mini lab/cocker spaniel/aussie shepherd mix, Zoey.

If you’ve already read books 1 and 2 of the Find Me series…I ask for your patience. I want to get book 3 right for you. 😉

Happy Reading, everyone!
