Book title: More Than Him
Author: Jay McLean
Series: More #3
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release date: January 28, 2014
Hosted by: Forever Me Romance

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we're back.
And we're fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.


More Than This (Book 1)


More Than Her (Book 2)


More Than Him (Book 3)



 Author of Mature YA / New Adult contemporary novels, MORE THAN THIS, MORE THAN HER, and a soon to be released sequel, MORE THAN HIM. I enjoy reading and writing books that make people laugh, cry and swoon for dreamy book boyfriends. When not doing either of those, I can be found looking after my two little boys, and trying to avoid house work at all costs.

Blog Tour Stop for A Woman Gone Mad by Kimber S Dawn

Title: A Woman Gone Mad
Author: Kimber S Dawn
Release Date:  January 2, 2013

"I inhaled it! Yes I read it through the new year celebration I just couldn't put it down!!! This book spoke to me, not only is it real and raw, it is what every and I do mean every woman goes through at some point. We all go a little mad sometimes but we are sane and loved it is BEAUTIFUL. Yeah ladies we all have a Nick and a Leo in our lives, the point is which one do we deserve? This is in my opinion sort of every woman's anthology! Go on ladies inhale it, you know you want to!" 10 Stars ~ The Book Fairy

"Loved this story. It was so real and raw it was unlike anything I've read recently." ~ Rose's Book Blog

"Be prepared for swooning, bitching, laughing and ugly crying. My sweet baby mother on all that is holy Kimber SLAYED me!" 5 Stars ~ Sweet and Spicy Books

"Kimber S. Dawn has written a book that will make you want to scream, throw your kindle and be like WTF!? And I mean that in the best way possible. This intriguing journey of Lillian Shaw's self discovery is an amazing read. I am so glad I took a chance on this book and this author." 5 Stars ~ Erin, Give Me Books  

Forget everything you know about fairytales. There comes a point in a woman's life when she realizes not everyone gets a happy ending.

And no one knows this better than Lillian Shaw.

The safety of a small southern upbringing and a happy normal family couldn't keep life from chipping away at her.

And nothing leaves its mark like the bite of a broken heart.

Blow after blow, Lillian tries to stay optimistic, but when faced with a choice that could destroy her future, she gives in to the temptation.

When your first true love comes crashing into your happily ever after, you're supposed to walk away. Not fall back in love.

But saying no to Leo was something Lillian could never do...

Once lines are crossed is there any going back?

Or is the risk that Lillian Shaw takes going to leave her broken again...

And this time be enough to make her A Woman Gone Mad?

***Warning: This is not a shy and tender fairytale love story. It's a raw, tragic, and gritty story inspired by true events. This book is not for the faint of heart, it contains graphic language, sex, violence, and drug use. MATURE Audiences Only. Not intended for young adult readers.***

Hey, I'm Kimber, and I really freaking hope you enjoyed AWGM! Visit my website or Throw me a review up on my FB page, or Goodreads if you loved it! I am a whore for reviews. Ahh... let's see, what can I tell you about my self... Well, first of all I'm a straight up whore for many, many things. I'm a wine whore, some would say I'm a functional alcoholic, and I'm totally cool with that title. Now the day my cheese completely falls off my cracker and I lose the functional in that title, well yeah never mind. Even then I'll deny that shit. I'm a whore for Victoria's Secret, no seriously, like my VS Angel's Credit Card stays maxed out, hey, they got cool shit. I have a whole lot of hats, meaning I can be called a billon different things, daughter, wife, mother, labor unit nurse, I sell pussy on the side *coughs* that would be persian kittens, thank you you dirty minded scoundrel, I'm also compulsive blackjack addict, book blogger, book pimp, book whore, Jack Daniels is my favorite boyfriend and my biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can a die a happy woman is the day I get to go two stark naked hour round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs* I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life, you know for the Michael's and Leo's and Nick's in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore where I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough any anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one, I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them. I've never done a single thing in my life half way, I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & DirtyBooks I was ready to finally take the plunge and write the story that's been restlessly clawing to get out of my head and onto paper for a VERY long time. I'm a southern girl to my core, a self proclaimed smut whore, andI guess now we can add aspiring author to my hat collection as well.

Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by 'Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi' Latin for: If I can not find a way, I will make my own.

Author Interview with Author Sue Lee

Today I'm very lucky to be interviewing Sue Lee author of Nerd Girl. Hi Sue, thank you for agreeing to this interview. 

Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I live in Seattle with my husband and twin 7 year old daughters.  Three years ago, I left my corporate career at Microsoft to spend more time with my children.  I still work part time as a contractor, but I now have more time to write and pursue my other interests.  Nerd Girl is my first novel.  I am also working on a YA series. 

What are your ambitions for your writing career?

As I mention above, Nerd Girl is my first novel.  I've thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.  Honestly, when I put it out there, I had no idea if people would read it or not.  It’s still early, but feedback has been very positive.  Writing Nerd Girl has allowed me to fulfill a long time goal of mine and right now, I'm just enjoying the experience.  I will continue to write stories until I lose the enjoyment of doing so.  

Do I see a long term career as an author?  

Right now, it’s just a wonderful hobby that I also happen to be very obsessed about :-)

Which writers inspire you?

I’m inspired by Emily Giffin, Tracy Garvis Graves, and Diana Gabaldon. Emily Giffin is so great with character development.  Her heroines are usually intelligent and strong career women, but they’re also vulnerable, fun, and very likable.  Each of her books center on a personal moral dilemma that is very relatable.  Tracy Garvis Graves’s book, Covet, was on my top ten list of books for 2013. Her characters are so real.  I could completely relate.  Many readers have told me that Nerd Girl felt very real too - everything from the characters, to the dialogue, to the situations experienced in the book.  That is the best compliment ever. Lastly Diana Gabaldon is just an amazing story teller.  She is the queen of the historical fiction romance genre.  The Outlander series has such rich characters.  When I read Diana Gabaldon’s stories, I’m completely transported into another world and relish ever delicious word.

So, what have you written?
(*Include books, novellas, short stories, poems, blogs, awards or anything of interest.)

Nerd Girl is it J.  I am working on a YA paranormal series though.  No title or release date yet. 

Where can we buy or see them? (* include American, European and any other relevant links. Free, free promotions or prices can be included)

Nerd Girl is available on Amazon both e-book and paperback, Smashwords and all of their distribution partners (B&N, iBook, kobo, etc…)

Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?

Julia is a self-proclaimed nerd.  She’s a bit OCD, anal, conservative, and classic Type A.  She loves her Harry Potter books and uses charts and graphs to manage her life.  She’s smart and driven and although she is successful in her career, she has always been unlucky in love.  She tries to manage her love life like a project plan and it’s always backfired on her.  She likes predictability and when relationships get complicated, she would just rather not go there.  When Julia meets Ryan, he not only turns her life upside down, but threatens to destroy the one thing she’s always trusted would be there for her, which is her career. Through the story, Julia learns to work through ambiguity where things aren’t always black and white.  She leaves her comfort zone to find love. She learns to see that there are two sides to every story and sometimes, you have to trust your heart and take a leap of faith.

What are you working on at the minute?

I’m working on a new YA paranormal story.  I think it will likely be a 3 part series, but I will let the story dictate that for me.  I’ve always loved this genre and authors such as Richelle Mead, Veronica Roth, Jennifer Armentrout, Cassandra Claire are some of my favorites.  I just love the idea of writing something completely different with a far out idea and marrying science fiction, fantasy, and romance together.  I know this is a different genre and audience than readers of Nerd Girl, but this is where my heart is telling me to go.
What’s it about? (*if relevant)

I can’t reveal too much right now.  But I can say that it has something to do with global warming with some paranormal influence.  There is also a love story weaved into it, as well as some political parallels.

What genre are your books?

Nerd Girl is contemporary romance.  The new series I’m working on I think would fall into the Young Adult, Romance, and Paranormal genre.

What draws you to this genre?

I’m a voracious reader and these are two of my favorite genres.  I also love historical fiction, but needless to say, to write a novel of that genre I think would require a lot of research and expertise.  If I didn’t have two young children and work part time for a software company, I would consider that as a future endeavor. 

Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?

Ryan is in his mid-late thirties.  He’s got beautiful blue eyes and sandy brown hair.  I always thought of Michael Fassbender or Daniel Craig.  Both men are intelligent and complex, rugged yet refined, and incredibly sexy ;-).  As for Julia, I really like Emily Blunt or Alexis Bledel.  They both have a sharp look about them with intelligence, wit, and vulnerability behind their eyes.  Julia is a city girl and a career woman, and both of these actresses can easily pull that off.

How much research do you do?

Nerd Girl was easy.  The hero and heroine both work at Megasoft.  In the real world, its Microsoft, but for legal reasons I couldn't use the actual company name.  Not ideal, I know.  Anyways, I worked there for almost 12 years.  My husband has been there for almost 18 years and still works there today.  Ryan and Julia are completely fictional characters, but everything about the company, its subculture, the actual jobs, are all authentic based on my real experiences with the company.  I also live in Seattle and live in the neighborhood, Queen Anne, where both Julia and Ryan live. As for my next novel, more research is required.  Even though the story is based on some science fiction and paranormal ideas, I still want to make it believable, so I’m doing a lot of reading up on global warming.

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?


When did you decide to become a writer?

I don’t know if there was ever a distinctive moment when I decided to become a writer.  I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never did anything formal until I wrote Nerd Girl.  It’s always been a dream of mine and after leaving my full time career, I had more time to pursue my writing interests.

Why do you write?

I daydreamed a lot as a child and maybe this is just my adult version of doing the same thing.  I enjoy immersing myself into a story, especially when I can influence and imagine what happens in it.  I think it’s also just very therapeutic for me.  I find enjoyment and a sense of calm and focus when I’m writing. 

What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?

With Nerd Girl, I had been noodling on the idea for quite a while. When I finally left my corporate job, I took some time off and started to “smell the flowers” more, so to speak.  That’s when I started working on an outline.   In the summer of 2012, a Vanity Fair article came out featuring Microsoft on the cover.  It became clear to me that there was intrigue with the company.  That was also the year that indie-publishing really took off and I just loved some of the great indie author love stories that came out that year.  It just felt like the right time.  I wanted to marry my corporate experiences with a love story.  I started writing that summer and was pretty much obsessed with it until it was done.

What is the hardest thing about writing?

Finding the time.  I still contract part time, but I also have twin 7 year old girls.  Between work, homework, being a mom, wife, and living a healthy lifestyle, it’s difficult to find quiet time to write.  I’m the ultimate multi-tasker though.  I often come up with my plot outlines while I exercise, sit in traffic, stand in grocery aisles, wherever and whenever I have a few moments to think.  I envy those who have found enough success to do this full time.

What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?

I always knew the story outline and how the book would end.  I just didn’t know exactly how the details would come together.  Even though Nerd Girl in many ways is a lighthearted romantic comedy, there are also very emotional, bittersweet, and thoughtful moments in the book.  I wanted to find the right balance and not veer too far one way or the other.  It’s always difficult finding the right balance. 

What is the easiest thing about writing?

I like strong character development.  Before I started writing Nerd Girl, I flushed out all the main characters independently.  I wrote a biography of sorts for each character.  I think it’s important to really understand what drives and motivates a character to be a certain way.  What were they like as a child?  As a sister, wife, brother, etc…  How would others describe him or her?  Were there any pivotal events in his or her life that in part, shaped who they are today?  What are their hobbies, tics, habits, facial expressions?  I love this part about writing.  Once you figure out all these parts of a character, writing the book becomes easier.  As the reader, you can better understand what drives someone to do the things they do. 

How long on average does it take you to write a book?

Do you ever get writer’s Block?

Of course.  Especially when I’m sick or running out of steam.  But I still force myself to write, even if it’s just one awful paragraph. 

Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?

I don’t know why this happens, but sometimes I just get on a roll.  I write and write and write and I read it back the next day and I love it.  I don’t even know where some of it came from.  There is this place called the “Zone” and when I’m there, I’m up until ungodly hours of the night.  Then there are days when one sentence is a chore.  I just write a few paragraphs on those days, but I still force myself to do it.  For me, it’s about keeping the rhythm going.

Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?

Yes. Many people have told me that the cover of Nerd Girl, along with the title, was sufficient enough reason for them to want to read the book.  It’s not rocket science, but if you’re an unknown author, a good cover certainly helps.

How are you publishing this book and why?
(*e.g. Indie, traditional or both)

Nerd Girl is an indie book.  This is my first book and frankly, I just didn’t have the patience to want to search and wait for an agent to decide whether or not my book was worthy or not.  I was so excited about writing Nerd Girl, that I just wanted to get it out there.  Self-publishing is so easy to do these days and your can do it with minimal investment.  I had nothing to lose.  For my next book though, I’m less anxious about the process and will explore the traditional route first to see where that takes me.

Any amusing story about marketing books that happened to you?

What’s your views on social media for marketing?

It’s a necessity for Indie authors. Bloggers are key to getting the word out there.  Facebook, author websites, Goodreads, Twitter, etc… are inexpensive, far reaching option to tell people about your book.

What is your favorite book and why?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  She is just an amazing story teller.  I think she is the queen of the historical fiction romance genre.  The Outlander series has such rich characters.  Jamie is my dream man.  He is an old fashioned gentleman, courageous and strong, beautiful and sensitive, intelligent, respectful, protective and dominating all in one.  The actress playing her in the upcoming Starz series described Claire as a “bad ass” and I couldn’t agree more.  Claire is smarty, witty, feisty, classically beautiful and wild, strong and brave.  When I read Diana Gabaldon’s stories, I’m completely transported into another world and relish ever delicious word. 

What is your favorite quote?

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.”  -- Albert Einstein

What is your favorite film and why?

I have two:

The English Patient -- It’s just a beautiful epic love story.  I also love Ralph Fiennes.
Out of Africa - Meryl Streep is amazing and the story again, is another epic love story.
Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
I hope I’ve finished my next book series!!
What is your favorite movie and why?

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Don’t be afraid.  I was terrified to show my work to others.  But when I finally did so, it was incredibly liberating.  You also never learn to get better if you don’t ever let others see and critique your work.  Also, try to write something every day.

Where do you see publishing going in the future?

Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?

Peer Inside My Soul and See Me- REVIEW

If anyone know me I am in love with poetry and have been writing since I was 12 years old De Ann
Townes invokes great emotions with her work. I do look forward to more of her work in the future and I give this 5 angels!

The Curse of the Red Eyed Witch REVIEW

The curse of the Red Eyed Witch was a great short story for kids about I would say 8-10. Siefken weave a very vivded story that can bring the story to life. There is a great message within this story also. Tell me if you can find it :) I know I did. In all I give this story four angels.




When Jenny has the opportunity to spend the summer with her sister, a small slice of freedom is all she's really hoping for. Instead she finds something else altogether:

That's what Jenny feels when she looks at Arram. She knows he's drawn to her too, but the mage­in­training does his best to hide it. Stung, Jenny turns to Arram's former best friend,


But Arram and Jack's rivalry is much darker than Jenny suspects, and so are Jack's intentions. Soon she's caught in a mystery of old murder, ancient prophecies, and magic hidden where no one has thought to look. When Jenny uncovers a secret magic, she is offered two choices. Arram wants to keep her safe. Jack wants to show her the easy way out. Whatever Jenny decides, her life will irrevocably change. Either way, freedom may be the one thing Jenny can never have.

Melanie Crouse lives in the gorgeous state of Maine with her (usually) delightful family. Look for her next novel Hidden Magic, coming soon. For more information, see
