SYNOPSIS

***This is a new adult contemporary novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.***

Julie Preston is an artist. But her canvas isn’t paper or clay. It’s hair. She spends her days coloring, blow drying and styling her clients hair at the Razor’s Edge salon. Julie is also annoyed. She went out on a date and had a great time, gave the guy her number and the jerk never called.

So when he waltzes into the salon and sits down in her chair she briefly considers strangling him with the pink cape she fastens around  his neck.

Too bad she can’t.

Blue Markson, the guy who never called, is a police officer so causing him bodily harm would be a first class ticket into the slammer. Just looking at him again makes Julie forget why she was mad in the first place, but she’s already learned that Blue is nothing but heartache. So when he starts coming around, acting like he hadn’t made her stare at the phone for days, she tries to brush him off.

Only…

Her life is about to blow up in her face, she’s about to get caught up in a sticky web of crime and the one guy who can help her is the one guy she vowed never to trust again.

     1. Can you tell our readers a few details about you? Where you were born? Do you have any brothers? Where have you spent your childhood?

I was born in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico on December 9, 1974 (yes, I am old. LOL!) I have one brother who is six years younger than me and one sister who is 16 years younger than me. Although I was born in Mexico, I have lived in Texas since I was an infant.

     2. What was your favorite game as a child?

I used to like to play “make-believe” or pretend with my cousin. He would pretend he was my pet monkey or dog and I would treat him like an animal. LOL! It sounds very mean now, but it was a fun game. I was only four-years-old, then.

     3. How did you spend your time, as a child, and later, as a teenager? Did you love hanging out with friends, going on a concert or staying at home, writing and reading?

When I was a kid, I loved hanging out with my best friend and my cousins. We would play with our dolls or play outside. During my child hood I loved to read, but it would put me to sleep.

 Later, in my teen years, I liked going to the movies and to the mall with friends and talking on the phone or watching television. I wasn’t much of a party animal. My parents were very strict, so I wasn’t allowed to be out too late. I would sometimes go to football games on Friday nights with my cousin and some friends. I didn’t write much when I was a teenager. I would imagine a lot stories and knew someday, when I had the time and was older, I would write them.  Since I had so much reading to do for school, I never really read books for pleasure. Shame on me.

     4. Who was/is your life model?

I don’t think I have one because I admire different things from different people.

     5. Do you love animals? If yes, do you have any pets?

I like animals, but I cannot have any in my home because we are all allergic to them.

     6. What place in this world would you love to visit most? You travel a lot?

I would love to visit the entire world. I cannot commit to telling you that I would prefer one place over the next because there are so many beautiful things to see everywhere. I don’t travel very much – maybe, once a year.

     7. What’s your favorite place for writing/reading?

My office.

Book Blitz: ”Epiphany” by Christina Jean Michaels

EpiphanyBlitzBanner

Epiphany by Christina Jean Michaels
Publication date: July, 2013
Genre: NA/17+ Romantic Suspense
SYNOPSIS

“I had my first psychic dream when I was nine. Psychic implied power, and powerful wasn’t a word I’d use to describe myself. I couldn’t foretell the future or conjure visions at will, but I couldn’t think of a more fitting word to describe what I sometimes saw in my dreams.” 

For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher’s Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn’t prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she’s been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They’ve turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media’s headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.

Epiphany
AUTHOR INTERVIEW
  • What inspired you to write Epiphany?

I’d been playing around with the idea of writing a novel for years. Actually, I’d written fan fiction for a long time, which was how I ended up hearing about National Novel Writing Month. I signed up for NaNoWriMo in 2008, never believing I’d actually write 50,000 words, and I used anything and everything for inspiration–from the people I saw on Halloween night to the crazy customers that would come into the convenience store where I worked. I plotted in my head during downtime and loaded up on 5-Hour energy shots after work in order to crank out those words. I don’t think there’s any one thing that inspired me to write the book, though NaNoWriMo definitely played a part in helping me to get it going.

  • How did you come up with the title?

I have no idea, but I like the different contextual meanings. She’s psychic, and there are a slew of secrets that come out in the story, so I thought it fit.

  • Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

Some things in Epiphany are very loosely based on real life. They planted the seed, but ultimately Epiphany became its own story entirely. I can relate to Mac when she wakes from a nightmare because I’ve had night terrors since I was a child. Thankfully, I don’t have the burden of psychic power to add to it!

  • What books have most influenced your life most?

I couldn’t get my hands on enough Sweet Valley High books when I was a teenager. When I switched to adult fiction, I was introduced to Sandra Brown, and later Nora Roberts. I’m a romance junkie–always have been. I think Roberts is excellent at romance, and Brown has amazing talent for really twisted plots.

More recently, I’ve really enjoyed new adult and even dark erotica. Kitty Thomas is my favorite in the dark erotica genre.

  • What book are you reading now?

At the moment, I’m not reading anything as I’ve been too busy, but I finished reading Unbreak Me by Lexi Ryan a couple of weeks ago. That book was AMAZING! Phew! I can’t even describe the level of twisted my insides became at reading it, and I’m talking twisted in a good way. 😉

  • What are your current projects?

Currently, I’m in a writing slump. I have a dark erotica project I started a few months ago that I plan to publish under my other pen name, and I also need to begin writing the next book in the Legacy of Payne series. Right now, I’m spinning ideas in my head, which is my equivalent of early outlining. What I really need to do is sit down and write, NaNoWriMo style.

  • If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in Epiphany?

There’s always going to be something that I find imperfect, and I do wish I’d found a way to work in one more tiny clue, but overall, I’m really happy with the way Epiphany turned out.

  • Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

I became an obsessed reader at age 13. My mom and I were homeless for a while, and I latched on to reading as a means of escape. About a year later I realized I could play God and write about my own characters.

  • Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

My OCD need to constantly edit. It really gets in the way of writing rough draft copy. If I could overcome this, I know I could finish projects a lot sooner. Ridiculously sooner!

  • Who designed your book cover?

I designed it. Working with digital art is another passion of mine. When I need a break from writing, I’ll switch over to making book covers and web graphics.

  • What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Finishing it. I had a mental block when it came to Epiphany. Looking back now, I can’t believe it took me that long to write the ending.

  • Do you have any advice for other writers?

Take the time to learn from others. I work shopped Epiphany online, and as a result I feel my writing is better for it. Epiphany is a better story for it. I also made some wonderful friends. A good critique partner is invaluable–I can’t stress that enough.

  • If you could be one of your characters, who would you chose?

This is a difficult question, as I like to torture my characters! I’d like to be in Mac’s shoes for one night–or out of them because she’d be naked and between the sheets with Aidan on that night, lol.

  • Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thanks for your interest in Epiphany! I hope you enjoy the story. I’d also like to extend a thank-you to the bloggers for hosting me!

 The answer is just the beginning.

About the author:

megan hand

At twelve, Megan decided to write a novel. A month later, she quit. A reading junkie by nature, she started writing again in her twenties as a way to get the voices out, because who wouldn’t want to create a Real Living Person out of thin air? Megan also plays the piano and sings. She teaches little kids and takes pictures of pretty butterflies. She eats way too much chocolate, is sort of a mad scientist with her blender, and spends an unhealthy amount of time LOLing on Facebook and Twitter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and very smiley son. Bitter Angel is her first published novel.

Here you have my review:

Holy lemon!!! This book was just..WOW! It is that kind of book you can never forget. The plot was beyond my expectations (in a good way, of course), the characters were amazing, down on earth and very interesting and that cover, so simple but it definitely matches the book.

It was strange and she knew it. Lila lived Friday night twice. But, why? With what purpose? One time she went with her friends, Heather and Nilah, in an underground club and the second time she woke up near her sweet boyfriend Jay

Bad things were about to happen when Lila find out that her first ‘dream’ was just a vision. The kidnapping hasn’t happened yet and she must stop it from happening. This time was for real. Bad guys, drugs and a bad-ass heroine called Lila Spencer. She wasn’t crazy, she was in danger. Did she and her friends survive? You have to read the whole book to find out.

Like I already said, I am in love with ‘’Bitter Angel’’. Megan Hand did a great job with her debut novel and I can’t wait to see her future projects. I love her for writing this story, but mostly, I love her for creating Jay. He was the perfect boyfriend EVER! Sweet, sexy and omg, he was playing the guitar. I liked Lila as well, but Jay will always have a special place in my little beating heart<3

Overall, ‘’Bitter Angel’’ is a MUST READ! I highly recommend it for everybody. You’ll get wrapped in the story and you’ll beg for more in the end
