This week's question: What are you looking forward to in August?

On the 30th, it is my daughter's 21st birthday!
We have decided to gather the grandparents, aunts and uncles and other family members as well as her intimate friends for a gathering at our place.

I will have a full house as most of our relations live approx. 100kms (62miles) away from us. We will be filling our yard with cars and caravans for the weekend.

Coffee and Cockpits

by




“If I had to die, I wanted it to be doing something I loved, with a man who wanted to fly me to the moon.”

By day, Nina Poppins is a professional flight attendant, who lives to travel, and isn’t afraid to chase her dreams. By night, she’s an award winning salsa dancer who wears sexy corsets and garter belts. She wants to keep her two lives separate, but Liam Mikin knows her secrets.

Liam Mikin is a co-pilot used to getting any air-hostess he wants with one blazing look of his blue eyes. And he wants Nina. But Nina is adamant she won’t end up as another notch on a pilot’s wingtip.

However, fate intervenes when their airplane malfunctions on a routine flight to Samoa, stranding all the crew on the Pacific island. Liam has his opportunity to prove to Nina he’s not what she thinks, but he wasn’t counting on competition in the form of an engineer. Nikolai Rivers dances as well as Nina and is linked to Liam’s past. As Nikolai fights for Nina’s affections, Liam is forced to face what happened all those years ago.

Being island-wrecked in a five star hotel is anything but relaxing. Fraught with male egos, dancing, and secrets, both Nina and Liam aren’t ready for what fate has in store.


TEASER: 

 I shot her a sniper look then glowered at Liam’s touch. Even though his fingertips were on layers of my uniform, my skin grew warm. As if sun radiated from his touch, seeping into night-chilled earth. Tingling also happened, but I pretended it didn’t. “Yes?”

EXPRESS YOURSELF

HOSTS:

I apologize for being late posting my Express Yourself post this week. Dani and Jackie have asked "What is the most frustrating / satisfying thing about being a writer?"

Firstly, I must say, "This is a great question girls!"

The most frustrating thing for me is - not enough time in life to write!
Unfortunately, life just gets in the way!

The most satisfying - Accomplishing!
Completing a novel and publishing it, is such a wonderful feeling!

What is the biggest challenge you face socially?

I am always late! I know it isn't very appropriate, and quite bad manners, but I am always five to ten minutes late to appointments, meetings, work and meeting up with friends.

 No matter how hard I try, I just cannot get there in time! 

I think I just have so many things I try to pack into my day, I am just too busy to be puntual!

 1303 - The Dragonslayer (The 13th Floor series, #3)

by

BLURB:

On the rooftop of neighboring building, dragonslayer Xanthus Ehrensvard fires at his target, Governor Whittaker. How he missed the shot, he doesn't know, but fleeing the scene, he picks up an unwanted passenger. Gorgeous reporter Lois King saw Xan's face, and she believes it's the story to make her career. Except he can't let her walk away knowing what he looks like. Xan has to show her the Governor is a bigger threat to the world than he is.

Xan knows dragons never went extinct. They evolved with human society, taking on mortal forms, and slithered their way into positions of great influence and power, just like the Governor.
But it's no easy chore proving to someone that dragons still exist, and even more so, they're disguised as famous people. Xan must convince Lois or find another way to silence her. An option, as he gets to know her, he likes less and less.

After all, dragonslayers are no longer celebrated heroes but outlaws. Just as the dragons wish it. But this outlaw must make a plan to slay the dragon or risk its retribution.

MY TEASER:

 
Xan rammed the knife into the dragonkin’s abdomen and jerked it upward. Just silver in his bloodstream would be enough to kill him, but Xan wanted him dead fast. Black blood gushed forth, steaming and hot against his flesh. He hissed as it reddened his flesh with burns. The body dropped with a wet thud to the floor. Xan ran at the second dragonkin who tossed Lois into the kitchen like a used tissue.

CHRISTINE RAINS THE GHOST BLOG TOUR



Today, I am hosting, Jeremy Emeerson, 
from Christine Rain's 
new release,
The Ghost
the last book in the 13th Floor series.

I have read the first two stories in this series and am at the moment reading the third. I have found them to be exciting, well written stories, dealing with paranormal beings who because of their unfortunate situations, find refuge on the 13th Floor of a mysterious apartment building in the Mid-west city of Carmine, halfway between Indianapolis and Chicago.
 
I extend my congratulations to Christine on this release, 
and welcome Jeremy, to my blog. 
It is a pleasure to have you pay a visit! 

I hope The Ghost is a great success, Christine!


MEET JEREMY EMERSON

Do you have a cigarette? Yeah, not like I can smoke it, but standing around chatting like this makes me want to have something in my hand. A drink's equally unlikely. I haven't learned how to touch anything in the physical world yet. Sometimes it really sucks being a ghost.

I've been told to watch my language talking to you. Though cutting back on the cussing seems like a minor worry when you have a monster out to eat you. I mean, literally. It drinks your life energy, drains your very soul. That's freakin' terrifying! All I am is my soul now. Not that it's a pretty thing like Chiharo's. She shines bright as a star. We can't see the fiend, but I bet it's drooling every time it sees her.

Not that I can blame it. Chiharo is gorgeous. She might look delicate, but she's so strong. And I'm not just talking about the fact she can move stuff in the physical world. I've never met a girl like her. The last girl I dated in life had her head half shaved and hair dyed purple. Or was it green? I don't know. It doesn't matter. She didn't affect me like Chiharo does.

Now if only I could convince Chiharo to help me kill the vampire. The bastard murdered me. Left me in a sewer. Yet she goes on about how he's changed and redemption and all that crap. I don't know. Maybe people can change. I've never seen the world before as I do when I'm standing with her. Man, that sounded corny. You can see why I need that cigarette.

 

The Ghost 

(The 13th Floor series, #6)

By
Christine Rains
 
Genre: paranormal romance

Release date: July 13th, 2013








Blurb:



Chiharo Black lives with six supernatural tenants in a haunted building's mysterious thirteenth floor. Of course, no one knows she's there except the cats. Being a ghost can be a bit frustrating and lonely, but it isn't as bad as her mother made it out to be.

Until another ghost intrudes on her territory. Jeremy Emerson wants revenge on the vampire that killed him and won't stop until he has it. To top it off, a nightmarish shade sneaks in and leeches the energy from the building's residents before setting its sights on Chiharo and the thirteenth floor. She can't decide which one is more frightening: the one wanting to eat her soul or the one who might win her heart.

Chiharo must convince Jeremy to stand with her against the hellish parasite. If they cannot work together, the greedy fiend will not only drain their energy but everything that supports the thirteenth floor's existence.
