Creatura de Nely Cab la editura Leda+Precomanda

CE SE ÎNTÂMPLĂ CÂND BĂRBATUL DIN VIS DEVINE REALITATE?

Sunt, în acelaşi timp, şi mai mult, dar şi mai puţin decât o fiinţă umană. Sunt, prin cine ştie ce întâmplare miraculoasă, încă în viaţă. Aceasta este povestea primei mele iubiri, povestea vieţii mele trecute şi povestea renaşterii mele…

Isis Martin, o fată de şaptesprezece ani dintr-un orăşel obscur din sudul Texasului, începe să sufere de tulburări de somn, după ce o siluetă neagră înaripată îi tulbură visele, hărţuind-o. Nu trece mult până când Isis se hotărăşte să-şi înfrunte frica, descoperind cu surprindere identitatea celui care se ascunde în spatele vietăţii amenințătoare cu chip uman. Şirul descoperirilor nu se opreşte însă aici…

Când Isis îi cere necunoscutului să demonstreze că nu este o plăsmuire a imaginației ei, acesta acceptă provocarea cu bucurie. Astfel, frumoasa adolescentă ajunge să îi cunoască pe membrii unei familii din spiţa divină a acelora de mult uitați de omenire.

Romantismul, senzualitatea explozivă, pericolul şi întâmplările dincolo de puterea de înţelegere a muritorilor o însoţesc pe Isis pe drumul ei spre o iubire nepermisă, de natură să schimbe legile pământeşti. În mod sigur, această extraordinară călătorie îi va captiva şi încânta pe iubitorii poveştilor de dragoste. Iar povestea se află de-abia la început…

Nely Cab locuieşte în sudul Texasului, împreună cu soțul şi fiul ei. Pe lângă scris, lui Nely îi place să deseneze şi să picteze. Ilustrația cu copacul de pe coperta acestei cărți este una dintre lucrările ei.

Book Blog Tour Need- Interview

Need – Want 2 ~ Contemporary Romance Adult

need-tour-badge

Inkspell Publishing

Author: Stephanie Lawton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 17th, 2013
Length: Super Novel
ISBN Print: 978-1-939590-08-4
ISBN ePub: 978-1-939590-07-7

Isaac Laroche is cursed. All he wants to do is hide out and feel sorry for himself. Never mind that he got caught sleeping with his seventeen-year-old piano student, or that he abandoned her when the truth was exposed.

Isaac’s feisty high school sweetheart has different plans. Heather Swann has returned to their hometown of Mobile, Alabama, to regroup after breaking up with her troll of a fiancé. She’s restless and looking for a diversion, but she bites off more than she can chew when she sets her sights on rehabilitating Isaac with her unorthodox sexual, mental, and physical plans.

The two quickly reconnect, but their happiness is threatened by family secrets, old vendettas and the death of a beloved father-figure.

Can Heather handle Isaac’s baggage, or will her own come back to haunt them both? 

About the Author:

After collecting a couple English degrees in the Midwest, Stephanie Lawton suddenly awoke in the deepest reaches of the Deep South. Culture shock inspired her to write about Mobile, Alabama, her adopted city, and all the ways Southern culture, history and attitudes seduce the unsuspecting.

A lover of all things gothic, she can often be spotted photographing old cemeteries, historic buildings and, ironically, the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast. She also has a tendency to psychoanalyze people, which comes in handy when creating character profiles.

 Interview

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Need ?

NEED is the adult companion novel to WANT, a New Adult title released last year. While the first book was told from 17-year-old Juli’s perspective, NEED picks up about three months after the end of WANT and is told from 28-year-old Isaac’s point of view. Things ended badly for him and he’s now trying to pick up the pieces. Pretty hard to do when the whole town thinks you’re a sexual predator or at least a pathetic womanizer. He’s a character you love to hate, but his redemption is a wild ride.

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?

I always loved to read and in college I decided I wanted to do jobs that involved nonfiction writing (professional publications, newspapers, etc.) but I didn’t begin writing fiction until four years ago when we moved from the Midwest United States to the Deep South. Although it’s still the United States, it might as well be a different country! I think writing was a way to work through the epic culture shock.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?

Inspiration almost always comes from real life. I love contemporary novels and firmly believe truth is stranger than fiction, so I look for ideas in everyday occurrences. This doesn’t mean my books are autobiographical – they aren’t. I just like to build them around grains of truth to make them more believable. I also watch a lot of educational shows and documentaries. I’m always amazed at how often history repeats itself and how those events can be applied to current situations.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?

Yes. I am a sex-fiend dominatrix like Heather Swann. (KIDDING!) I think most writers put bits of themselves into their characters, though perhaps not consciously. In this series, I’m probably a combination of Juli, her mom and jovial Dave Gaston. But then I can kind of identify with Isaac’s morose outlook. But I can also appreciate Heather’s wacked-out sense of humor and take-charge attitude. Like I said, there are little pieces of me all throughout the books, but none of the characters are based on me or anyone in particular.

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?

Wow, I don’t remember the first book I read, but there was a series of children’s nonfiction books that my parents read to me and that I learned to read from. They featured historical figures and I remember being fascinated by the one about Louis Pasteur and little soldiers inside vaccines that helped us not get sick. I also loved the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

6. Do you have a favorite book?

Hands down, my favorite is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. There’s so much wit and hidden humor if you know where to look for it.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?

I’d take my Kindle because I have an insane back-log of books to be read. I’ve been on a New Adult kick so I’d probably dive into one of those.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays. [you mean about people? not sure I understand the question]

One thing I love about living in the South is that manners still matter. Chivalry isn’t dead here, and nearly everyone is polite. People still say „please” and „thank you” and hold doors for one another. Men call women „ma’am” and women address men as „sir.” I love the respect those titles infer. Little things like that make the hustle of everyday life so much more bearable.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?

Oh man, there are so many dumb mistakes I’ve made that I’d like to go back and correct! There are also some private moments I’d like to experience again (and again, and again, lol!). Otherwise, there’s nothing I’d like to go back and relive because I believe the only way to live is to keep pushing forward.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?

I’d recommend NEED simply because it’s sexy and insane! I love reading the reviews because they’re like, „WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!” Even if it’s not your cup of tea, it’ll grab you by the shirt collar and shake you until it gets your attention. I promise, you’ll be thinking about this book for a long time after you read the last page. 🙂

Interview

1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Reconnaissance?
Reconnaissance is the second book in my Paradise Reclaimed trilogy. You can read the books out of order, though, and it will stand alone without getting too complicated. It’s about the colony that has landed on Paradise 21. In the first book, the threat was so small, they couldn’t see it. So this time around, I wanted to give my readers giant monster aliens for fun!

2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?
I’ve written all my life, and I’ve always enjoyed reading. I started writing seriously about seven years ago. My first book, The Voices of Ire, took two and a half years to write! Now I can write a book in 2-3 months depending on the length and genre.

3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?
All of my books are a part of me and my experiences. I find inspiration everywhere I go, but especially in movies. When I come home from going to the movies, it’s like my entire brain is on fire.

4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?
All of them have part of me in them- even the bad ones! Which part, I’m not telling!

5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?
My very first book ever? Maybe it was Green Eggs and Ham. I’m not sure. I read a lot of Tad Williams and Christopher Pike growing up as a teen.

6. Do you have a favorite book?
I LOVE Jane Eyre. I really identity with her character and admire her choices in the book.

7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?
I’d take my shiny new Ipad because it has a ton of books on it! If I had to choose one, though, I’d pick Game of Thrones because that’s taking me forever to read, and it would occupy my time for a while. It’s great writing and a great story, but it’s not easy reading.

8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.
I’d LOVE for people to be more polite and more positive. You can achieve so much in life just by thinking positively.

9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?
The day I went to the Star Wars exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science. That day was the bomb.

10. Do you have a message for Romanian readers? Why would you recommend your book?
I hope you enjoy my book! I recommend it to anyone looking for a happy ever after story. If you enjoy Star Wars and Star Trek, then you’ll like this book.

Shadow of Time review

OMG! WOW! AWSOME!…..are NOT enough! This boook was sooo amazing, LOVED IT!

I loved the author writting style, the world, the characters and of course THE STORY! Another thing that I love so so much is that I discovered that the cover is so related with the story. I hope this made you curious!

Here it is the cover:

16166400

When I first read the book description on goodreads I was thinking: OMG! I NEEED this BOOK!! The part of its description that intrigued me most is this one: „Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. „. I was so so intrigued by this part, and I have to admit that I wasn’t dissapointed.

Thank you so so much Jen for giving me the opportunity to read your amazing Shadow of Time!

The book tells us the story of Hanna. She is 23 years old and she falls in love with a younger guy named Josh. I hope you won’t say that this is odd, because these things really happen so I can say that I am glad that I’ve read a book in which things are like in reality…..hope you all understand what I am saying. Hanna also has a brother, Ben and I was glad that their friendship was a strong one. I loved Hannah character, she is a strong character and I love her and I love her and Josh.

All the characters are so well defined and I loved all of them. Jen created them so so wonderful, she is an expert with words.

I was so happy to learn so many things about native Americans and about Navajo reservation. After I read the book, I have to admit that I had googled Navajo and I spent hours watching pictures of this beautiful place. I was placing Hanna, Josh and all the characters in there and I loved what I imagined.

It is hard for me to write this review without revealing spoilers:(. Try this novel! You won’t regret it! You will love everything about it!

This was my first Paranormal book and I loved it!

5 stars from me!
