Born an Underling, raised by Uplinders as part of the Breeding Program, Poppy's world is very simple:
        Everyone's looks are similar,
        Those allowed to breed have a purpose,
        and the Ageless Chancellor is God, and His word is Law.
        This is true for both groups she has belonged to.
Upon proving her breedability through a battery of tests, Poppy is ready to take her place as a married woman, whose only job is to help repopulate the post-apocalyptic world they live in. When her husband dies in a tragic work accident, her reality is put into jeopardy by a series of events that threaten to expose secrets of her society.
Will she find out the truth behind her existence? Or will she be destroyed by her wavering sanity and the gravity of the startling facts she discovers?

Girl of Glass by Megan O'Russell Book Tour and Giveaway




Girl of Glass

Megan O'Russell



Fiery Seas Publishing

Young Adult



December 6, 2016



Book Description:



Two worlds...one glass wall...no turning back.


The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention, and new drugs have given the outsiders the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid – but it comes at a price.


Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, being trained to protect her little piece of the world that has been chosen to survive. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. But when outsider Kieran Wynne begs for Nola’s help in saving an innocent life, she is drawn into a world of darkness and danger. The suffering on the other side of the glass is beyond anything Nola had imagined, and turning her back on the outside world to return to the safety of the domes may be more than she can stand. Even when her home is threatened by the very people Nola wants to help.

The Battle For Christmas by Jeremy Hinshaw Book Blast and Giveaway

  battle-for-christmas The Battle for Christmas by Jeremy Hinshaw After training and practicing for the auditions, Andy's friends excelled. Andy, however, failed miserably. When the positions were posted, his worst fears came true - he was the only angel not given a job for the birth of Lord Jesus. Would Andy be the only angel not to have an assignment for this climactic event? How did Heaven defend Bethlehem from the onslaught of Lucifer and his horde of demons? amazon Praise for the Book This was a great book to bring alive the story of Jesus birth, especially for those who have heard it many times before. Although fiction, it challenges us to remember that we are not doing this on our own. There is a whole army of angels at our disposal. Thank you Jeremy for captivating my thoughts and painting such a glorious picture, not often considered when thinking of that blessed day. From the very beginning as you described the landscapes I was hooked. The details breaking out the characters and each one's place in the story are masterfully woven. The story is packed with enough intrigue, adventure, and truth to be enticing to readers of all ages, and especially the youth of today. Compared to other books I have read on the subject, this one takes the cake with its creative story-line that is jam packed with adventure, humor, and close-calls. I recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of adventure. A fresh take on the matter that is certain to wow its readers. Especially those interested in a view behind the veil that we all know exists! I loved The Battle for Christmas. Not only is it a book I’ll read again, but it’s also a book I can’t wait to share with my children and nieces and nephews. In The Battle for Christmas we get a great fantasy paired with reminders of our hope and our faith. Plus, what an adventure! I really liked Andy. He’s the type of character young readers will want to emulate, and one we’ll want our children to emulate. I think his gift is one we all struggle with and one of the most important. add to goodreads Excerpt Excerpt #1 “Who’s Andy?” one of the little ones asked. “This is outrageous! I’m going to tell you the story of the birth of Lord Jesus …” The nursery erupted with groans again. “But …” Stephen raised his hands to quiet them. “I’m going to tell you about Andy the Angel and how Lord Jesus’s birth really happened.” David floated back to the ground and looked at Stephen with distrust. The small angels murmured and mumbled questions. “Whaddya mean, ‘How it really happened?’” one small angel asked. “It’s written in the Bible, and we all have heard it, read it, and recited it countless times—and who is Andy?” “Yes, yes. You’ve read it in the Bible.” Stephen raised his hands again to quiet the dissention. “And what the Bible says is true, but it’s written for men and how they saw the events of that day. It’s not the only account of that blessed day. “You see, many of us in Heaven worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it happen. There were some moments when we weren’t sure if we were going to be able to pull it off. We fought off demons, helped humankind bring about fulfillment of Scripture, and did many other things to make sure Lord Jesus’s birthday was going to happen. “Of course, if you don’t want to know how it happened here in Heaven, or what happened to Andy, that’s fine …” Excerpt #2 “Recently, Michael went to speak with the Romans,” Gabriel said. “He has convinced the Romans to tax the Jews for the second time. He will be returning to set the course for the Jews to appeal the tax. This will delay the tax long enough to set in motion the Lord Almighty’s timetable to send His Son to Earth.” He motioned to Michael. Michael simply nodded as he stared blankly across the room. “I spoke to the priest Zechariah,” Gabriel said. “I told him that he and his wife will have a child. This child will be the one from the desert preparing those for our Lord Almighty’s birth.” Gabriel laid the scroll down to his right, placed both elbows on the table, and interlocked his fingers in front of him as if in prayer. The table creaked from the weight of his massive forearms. Gabriel was always direct and to the point. “All angels will be needed for this event,” Gabriel continued. Excerpt #3 “We had to send angels to Earth to speak to people in dreams. Because of what was going to happen, some of the humans needed direct communication from Heaven to prepare for His Majesty’s birth. IDTs would be needed as guards for John the Baptist, Elisabeth, and Zechariah, not to mention Herod, the scribes, the wise men, the shepherds, and the …” “The shepherds needed guards?” “What about Mary and Joseph?” “Well, of course, the shepherds needed protection. What would happen if the Heavenly Host showed up to proclaim the Lord’s birth and no one was there? Everyone needed protection. The day Lucifer tricked Eve, the Lord Almighty cursed Lucifer. The Lord Almighty warned Lucifer that Lord Jesus was going to crush his head and Lucifer would be lucky to strike at Lord Jesus’s foot. Lucifer didn’t want this to happen. He knew if Lord Jesus was going to be born, it would be another step closer to his demise.   jeremyAuthor Jeremy Hinshaw Jeremy Hinshaw grew up in central Indiana.

Author's Bio:

Marilyn
R. Wilson is a freelance writer and speaker with a passion for
interviewing. Her career as a writer began in an unusual way, by
answering a Craigslist ad. It was while conducting her first interview
the world shifted - she had found her passion. Since 2006, she has
interviewed over 150 people from as near as her hometown of Vancouver,
Canada, and as far away as South Africa.


Whether through a random encounter on the New York subway or via a
one-on-one interview with an internationally recognized artist, the goal
is the same-to give wings to the unique journeys of inspiring
individuals. This goal first led the author to co-launch a successful,
innovative magazine focused on professionals working in the fashion
industry paired with photography and illustrations by local artists.
Then in 2015, Wilson took her passion to a new audience with the release
of her first book, the first in a series featuring the lives of real
people living real lives.

Book Description:



Noon Onyx is back! In this long-awaited fourth installment, Jill Archer returns readers to the dangerous world of Halja, where demons, angels, and humans coexist in an uneasy state of d├ętente.



Maegester-in-Training Noon Onyx feels like she’s done it all – mastered fiery magic, become an adept fighter, learned the law, killed countless demons, and survived having her heart broken by both love and an arrow, but now she’ll face her greatest challenge yet…



Far to the north lies an outpost famous for its unrest – Rockthorn Gorge. The town’s patron has specifically requested Noon’s help. Her assignment? Help the neophyte demon lord build his fiefdom and keep what’s his. The problem? Lord Aristos – Noon’s new employer – is her erstwhile lover, Ari Carmine, the aforementioned heartbreaker. And the number one thing he wants is her.



When Rockthorn Gorge’s viaduct is destroyed by Displodo, an enigmatic bomber, killing a dozen settlers and wounding scores more, Noon sets off early to aid in the search and rescue. Ari is listed among the missing and the suspects are legion. But Noon’s search is just the beginning. Her journey forces Noon to confront not only those she loves, but also enemies hell-bent on destroying them.

Excerpt

POCKET FULL OF TINDER

Noon Onyx #4





The claw-and-ball had been chewed clean off. It lay on a patch of sunny parquet floor, just to the right of an antique, aubergine wool rug now covered with the splintered remnants of an eleventh century pedestal table and one very large, ghastly looking, somewhat repentant barghest.



Nova’s head rested on her front paws as her gaze shifted warily from me to Miss Bister, Megiddo’s dormater, or house mother.



Megiddo’s lobby is not a kennel, Miss Onyx. That”—she motioned dismissively toward Nova—“beast can no longer be housed here.”



I opened my mouth to respond, but Miss Bister continued speaking, her tone rising only infinitesimally, her back as stiff as Luck’s lance must have been, and her expression just as hard. She pointed toward the previously priceless, three-footed piece of furniture that was now a worthless, two-footed pile of kindling.



No amount of money – or magic – can fix that, Nouiomo. It’s beyond repair. I warned you. I made an exception to my ‘no pets’ rule because you never cause trouble. You never forget your key; you promptly pick up your deliveries; you change your own light bulbs; you double bag your trash. You leave nothing behind in the bathroom; you don’t monopolize the washing machines; you are exceedingly polite to the lift operator; you don’t sing in the shower.”



I suppressed a sigh. After a year and a half of painstaking efforts, harrowing experiences, and endless hours of education, my worth had just been measured by the fact that I could change a light bulb. I’d mastered fiery magic, become an adept fighter, learned the law, killed countless demons (one regrettably, the others much less so), freed myriad immortals from an accursed, tortured bondage, and survived having my heart nearly destroyed by both love and an arrow, yet none of that meant bupkis next to the fact that I double bagged my trash. And yet…



I couldn’t really argue with Miss Bister either. Everything she’d said was true. And who was I to tell her what she should deem important? I respected that she valued domestic order and antiques. I did too, if not nearly as much as I valued the thing that now threatened our continued access to such. I glared at Nova, who swept one paw over her eyes as if she could hide from me and the evidence of what she’d done.



Barghests are giant hellhounds. They’re bigger than bears, fiercer than rabid raccoons, and uglier than naked mole rats. Their teeth are the size of railroad spikes, their claws as sharp as a sickle, their breath as foul as sewage gas. But they are also affectionate, brave, and loyal. What barghests lack in magic, they make up for in devotion. And even though I was plenty mad at Nova for chewing up Miss Bister’s table, I also knew it wasn’t Nova’s fault.



It was mine – for thinking the lobby of a demon law school dormitory would be a good place to keep her.



Miss Bister, please,” I said. “I’m truly sorry. I know I can’t replace that exact table. But if you would just allow me to—”



No,” Miss Bister said simply. “Either the beast goes… Or you do.”



I stared at the small, frail, magicless woman in front of me, trying desperately to think of some way to fix this problem. Wasn’t there something I could do, or say, or offer her that would make amends and convince her not to kick us out?



But all I could think of was how useless some of the things our society valued most were. As Miss Bister had pointed out, neither magic nor money would help. If I was going to repair the table, I’d need to find another way. Which would take time. And that meant I’d need to find somewhere else for us to sleep tonight. Because if the beast was going… I was too.



Yes, Miss Bister,” I said. “I understand.”



She narrowed her eyes, slightly suspicious of my now gracious defeat since I’d just spent the last half-hour trying to persuade her to accept various forms of reparation. But then she nodded, handed me a couple of paper bin bags, and left.



I slid one bag inside the other and stooped down to pick up the slobbery remains of Nova’s mangled chew toy. When I finished, she came over to me and nudged my arm with her head. She let out a woofy whine.



Was she sorry? She darn well better be!



I gave her a scratch behind the ears.



Now that you’ve sharpened your teeth on my former dormater’s furniture, are you ready to eat some real food for breakfast?”
