****Indy Author Talk*****
My name is E.J. Dabel and I’m the oldest of six. As you can imagine growing up with four brothers and one sister was always exciting for me. The house was never quiet, but always loud and full of activity.
One Christmas day when I was twelve years old my brother Les got me a book called THE HOBBIT. It didn’t matter to him that I hated reading at the time. I tried everything in my power not to read it, but Les was persistent and would not let me off the hook. It was one of the best things he ever did for me, and not only did I read and thoroughly enjoy his gift but I also became a bookaholic by the end of it.
There were two promises I made to myself when I was in High School, one was that I would one day meet all of… Continue reading
Prayer for the Dead Release Day.
This is the
story about a girl who lived, died, and met a guy… in that order.
Is it possible to find true love and happiness, while
condemned to purgatory until the ends of days?
Olivia Brennan wasn’t eager to find out. Working for a
division of Purgatory and Associates, her job consisted of one headache after
another, caused by the impatient souls waiting to move onto eternal paradise.
After a hard day at work, she was most content to stay home, watching reruns or
reading a book. Aside from a few friends occasionally forcing socialization,
her afterlife was nothing special.
That all changed the moment Drake walked into her
life. He was handsome, charming, and had a sadness behind his eyes she could
relate to. It seemed that Fate had finally brought her a kindred spirit…
But could Olivia
move past her own dark regrets of the life she left behind or would falling for
him demand the ultimate sacrifice—herself?
About the author
Nicki Scalise lives in Colorado with her
husband, Jon. They share their home with four dogs and a chinchilla. Prayer for
the Dead is her first novel.… Continue reading

***Review From Amy Conley For The Nerd Girl Page***
* Book Was Given In Exchange For An Honest Review*
Nineteen-year-old Vega Williams is dead by her own hand, and her tormentors still walk the streets. The destroyers of one of the world’s last pure souls even attend her funeral in the guise of grieving loved ones. In fact, her funeral is nothing more than a social engagement to most of Oakdale’s finer society.
With their good intentions painted on their faces, they believe that their secrets and hate filled thoughts are safe behind the veneer of propriety. However, they didn’t count on Zane Allistor’s presence. The young man that not even Vega could have recognized turns out to be the reaper of the fallen girl’s vengeance.
Using his strange ability to read and manipulate minds, Zane tracks down those guilty for pushing the girl he loves past the point of no return and uses their misdeeds against them. In a bloody twist of fate, two hearts are united when death leads to life
A quick read that delivers a little of everything for all different types of readers. An intriguing read about death, vengeance, and finding love… Continue reading

***ARC Review From Tara For The Nerd Girl Page***
** I received an ARC of this book, from the author, in exchange for an honest review **
Jocelyn Pearson is determined to spend her last month as a twenty-something doing everything she’s too busy or scared to try. Her imagination runs wild and then fixates on Ian Baird. He’ll be working at the Langston Museum for a short stint as a consulting curator. He’s Scottish. He believes sex is fun to be had. He’s the perfect choice for a fling. She only has to get him break his rule about sleeping with co-workers. Seducing a man was on her bucket list…
Ian is no one’s fool and knows exactly what Jocelyn wants—him. If she didn’t work for the Langston Museum, he’d be more than happy to oblige any and every fantasy she desired, but she’s the curator. She’s sweet, inexperienced and well liked by everyone including the museum owner and director. Ian can’t risk losing such an important contact for his consulting business. Not even when everything within in him craves a taste of her.
When Jocelyn sets her sights on him, there’s no way… Continue reading
