Inclement Gods Gods Inc. Series by Gabriele Russo Book Two Book Tour, Excerpt and Giveaway

Fiery Seas Publishing

June 13, 2017

Book Description:

When you live in a world pullulating with gods, can you truly be an atheist? Well, yes…if you know a way to get rid them.

Mysantheos, a fanatic atheist at the head of a powerful lobby/terrorist organization, has created a weapon able to kill gods. All he needs is a disruptive figurehead to attract the masses. Goblin, who has just tried to supplant Queen Louhi as CEO of Gods Incorporated, has been deemed the right kind of unworthy. Mysantheos breaks him out of the Queen’s prison and the godslaughter begins.

As the divine bodies pile up, panicked gods blame the CEO Queen for Goblin’s escape. Resentment builds in the company and violent factions start pushing for the extermination of the human race. Will Queen Louhi’s Nerd Squad, a group of angry gods, and Richard (a down-on-his-luck private eye),  manage to find Mysantheos in time to prevent what promises to be the bloodiest conflict between men and god ever?




Excerpt



The two men watched him leave. When the sound of his

footsteps died away, they detached themselves from the wall,

unhooked the ladder and lowered it into the pit. As the prisoner

started moaning that he had had enough, the big man hurried

down, made a shushing gesture and clubbed him hard on the head.

Two minutes later the ladder was back on the wall and the

big man, now carrying a black duffel bag across his shoulders,

followed his accomplice out in the maze of corridors. Silently, they

made their way through twists and turns until they reached an

open sewer grate.

The big man dumped the bag down in the hole and sat on the

ledge. “Now get back to your post,” he whispered, “be ready for the

next extraction.” Lithe as a tiger, he jumped in the dark tunnel.

Dragging the grate back in place, his accomplice wondered in

what sort of unholy mess he had gotten himself into.






About the Author:

Gabriele Russo, AKA Lucie-Gabrielle Jolicoeur-Rousseau, was born in Quebec City amidst a family of book lovers – her father had dreamed of being a writer and both of her brothers are published authors.

Since she earned her Bachelor’s in History, it was no surprise (except to her) that she ended up working in restaurants, eventually owning two, which almost drove her mad. She sold them and was nursed back to pseudo-sanity by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.

That’s when she answered the family calling and decided to write. Armed with her ideas for the Gods Inc. series she went back to the University and got her Master’s in Creative Writing.

She now lives with her husband in Culpeper, Virginia, where she divides her time between painting, ripping apart and reconstructing her recently bought historical home, playing tennis and, of course, writing more books.

Sequence Entangled The Heart of the Ocean Book 3 by Lorraine M.L.M. Cover & Trailer Reveal


FREE Aquafina with Smartfood Popcorn Purchase Pilot and Flying J. Travel Centers Road Trip Study

New Study Reveals Choosing Where to Stop on Family Road Trips Causes Stress for Most Parents
Fresh food options and enhanced restrooms are priority, especially for millennials looking for a total experience, Pilot Flying J-commissioned study finds
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (June 20, 2017) – Summer road trip season is in full swing, with 66 percent of Americans planning to travel this Summer* and an influx of families preparing to hit the road for the Independence Day holiday. But before they have a chance to unwind at their road trip destination, more than half of those parents (57 percent) will hit the road feeling “stressed” about where they are going to stop along the way. 
To learn about the needs of traveling families, Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers in North America, commissioned a survey of more than 1,000 U.S. parents who take family road trips and have children under the age of 18. The study revealed that when driving on a family road trip, finding a stop with clean bathrooms and fresh food options are both crucial factors - and common pain points – for parents. Specifically, the study found:
Fresh Food
  • Millennial parents (65 percent) are particularly stressed out about finding travel centers (rest stops, truck stops, gas stations, restaurants, etc.) with fresh food options that will make everyone in the family happy, as compared to Generation X parents (51 percent) and baby boomer parents (42 percent).
  • Nine in ten parents (88 percent), say that they would be “more likely” to stop at a particular travel center, if it were to offer fresh food options.
  • “Where to stop to eat” – is the top source of stress and family arguments when on a road trip.
Clean Restrooms
  • Three-quarters (74 percent) of parents have stopped during a road trip at a particular travel center, because of its reputation for having clean bathrooms.
  • Nearly all parents (98 percent) say that clean bathrooms are an “important” factor when deciding where to stop while driving on a family road trip.
Total Experience
  • Eighty-five percent of parents (including 91 percent of millennial parents) say they would be surprised to come across a travel center that has both great, fresh food options, and clean bathrooms and facilities.
Fortunately for parents, Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers are providing important solutions for parents’ biggest road trip pain points, investing in a total experience that includes renovated restrooms and a variety of fresher food offerings, so there’s something for the whole family.
“Listening to our guests, and understanding their needs is a priority for us at Pilot Flying J,” said Whitney Haslam Johnson, chief experience officer for Pilot Flying J. “If we can provide what families want to take some of the stress away, then hopefully it makes their experience with us enjoyable. As a mom of three boys myself, I understand how important that can be.”
Johnson, previously Pilot Flying J’s vice president of brand and customer experience, was named chief experience officer in May 2017. As part of her ongoing efforts, the brand recently invested $100 million to renovate bathrooms and showers across its network of more than 750 travel centers across North America, adding amenities like, eco-friendly hand dryers, Italian tile accents, family changing tables, and more.
Among other facility enhancement initiatives, Pilot Flying J is ensuring outdoor signs and canopies include LED lighting to better ensure a safe, comfortable experience for families.
The brand also developed PJ Fresh Marketplace, a fast-casual dining experience that delivers guests with high-quality on-the-go food options – from salads and fruit bowls, to freshly-made sandwiches and PJ Fresh Pizza, made with 100 percent real mozzarella cheese and a hand-braided crust. Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers recently partnered with celebrity chef Tim Love, who will innovate with the brand creating fresh, unique menu items, exclusive to Pilot Flying J.
To help kickoff the busy Independence Day driving season, Pilot Flying J is offering a special “road trip snack pack” for guests. From June 19 through August 31, guests can receive a FREE 20-ounce bottle of Aquafina water when purchasing a 2.25-ounce bag of Smartfood Popcorn when displaying an online coupon available at http://roadtrips.pilotflyingj.com/  at the time of purchase. Open 24 hours per day, Pilot Flying J offers a wide variety of products and merchandise to provide guests with convenience and preference.
The Aquafina and Smartfood Popcorn promotion at Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers is valid for customers in the U.S. and Canada from 12:01 a.m. on June 19 to 11:59 p.m. EST on Aug. 31.

Methodology

Where on Earth? by David H. Minton Book Tour , Excerpt and Giveaway




Where On Earth? An Alaska Adventure
By David H. Minton

Fiery Seas Publishing

May 2017  

Romantic Adventure

Book Description:

Dan Richards, an Iraq war vet, is a surveyor for the mining company, looking to open a new silver mine. Scrambling to establish his helicopter charter business in the wilds of Alaska, while trying to stay connected to his teenage daughter, his world soon turns upside down when he rescues a woman and her dog sledding team after an avalanche.

Samantha Bettencourt, an environmental engineer, is eager to begin her first project with the university. A spokesperson for an environmentalist group intent on preserving the wilderness, she is on the path to saving the wild, but when Dan walks into her life things start to change.

Sparks fly between Dan and Samantha as they find themselves running for their lives—from the good guys as well as the bad guys out to ruin the things they long to protect. Will they be able to escape before it’s too late? Will they get a chance at love or will they lose everything. . . including their lives?

Excerpt;


Flying along in his Jet Ranger, Dan Richards knew they were just barely in advance of a storm closing in. Returning from his work in Fairbanks, Search and Rescue was the last thing on his mind. Besides, they didn’t have much time. They had to get this chopper on the ground and in a hanger or no one would be flying it, ever. If they didn’t make it to Base, which was the only hanger around, there was a very high likelihood the chopper would be damaged, even destroyed by the storm. Base was about twenty minutes away, so he figured they could just make it to safety. But, Base knew that as well; they wouldn’t have called him if it weren’t serious. In fact, a rescue beacon alarm was an urgent call for help. Someone was in great danger, or worse. That was something with which Dan was familiar. Although not his job, in the wilderness of Alaska, he often found it was his calling. If they thought he could help, maybe he could. He nodded to Ted Matthews, his fair-skinned, buzz-cut, no-nonsense co-pilot.
“Base, Red Wing. Go ahead.”
“Red Wing, Base. I have a constant SOS from a rescue beacon. It may indicate an avalanche victim, given the region and the weather.”
“Roger, possible avalanche victim. Where is it?”

My review;

"The Captain's Daughter", by author Jennifer Delamere is the kind of book that once you start reading it you really lose yourself in the story. Rosalyn Bernay is a young woman who in the year 1879 is in London when she finds herself in horrible circumstances. She is alone and she has to make tough decisions. Because she is a singer she gets a job working backstage in a theater. While she is there she hopes to be able to move ahead. Nate Moran has had to leave the army because of an injury. His brother who works at the theater   has just broke his leg. Nate decides to work in his place for awhile. He  meets Rosalyn and his life will be forever changed. But, can she begin to trust anyone again?  I was given this book for a review by Litfuse Publicity Group . I give this book a 5/5 and all opinions are mine.
