Spreading Some Love Indie Blog Hop 2016




So this is my first time ever to be part of a blog hop. I have entered into them but never once joined in on the fun to spread the word. Below are a few indie authors that I have either had the pleasure of reading their work or I have heard of their book/s and so I want to share it with you. I also asked if some authors would like me to showcase their work and they agreed. So I hope below you find a new author or maybe a favorite author and you can pick up their work. Just click on the links either Amazon or Goodreads and you will be taken to the book. 
A Huge Thank you goes out to b00k r3vi3ws for hosting this blog hop.

Title: The Conduit
Genre: Paranormal/YA 
Free on Amazon, Goodreads 

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world. While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini. Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, “Bring it.” -excerpt from THE CONDUIT
