Tawdra Kandle Spotlight & Multi-Prize Giveaway

A married mother of five (four biological and one in-law) with a passion for writing, reading and traveling, Tawdra Kandle "The Author with Purple hair" has been an author since 2008 with books in the YA, NA, Adult Contemporary and Paranormal Romance Genres. The purple hair besides being unique and interesting allows Tawdra to help raise awareness about blood cancers, to which she lost both her parents to.  In the wake of their deaths she began working with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society which uses purple in their awareness campaigns.

Her upcoming release JUST DESSERTS Perfect Dish Duo Book 2
Will Release on June 15th and is available for preorder from iTunes & Smashwords with a special pre-order price of $0.99 that will go up after release.

Blurb: When her friend Julia needed help forming a revenge plan against her ex-boyfriend, Ava was happy to lend a hand. She never expected that in the course of making Liam pay, she'd be the one to fall hard. . .for the one person who was absolutely off-limits. Crushing on the guy who humiliated her best friend is definitely against the girlfriend rules.

Besides, Ava has goals. Her life is all about graduating with honors and landing the perfect job. And Liam Bailey--sweet-talking, complicated son of a well-known local politician--isn't part of those plans. 

But Liam doesn't give up easily. And he doesn't intend to let their friends' opinions, his parents' disapproval or Ava's past get in the way of what he wants--Ava's heart.

Tawdra has donated an ebook copy of Book 1 of the Perfect Dish Duo series Best Served Cold to the blog reopen giveaway

Blurb:  Sometimes Revenge is the only choice.
Julia worked for weeks planning the perfect surprise birthday party for her boyfriend, Liam, but that night, she was the one who got the biggest shock. He broke up with her in front of all their friends, humiliating her in the process.
Clearly revenge was in order.
The plan is simple. Make him jealous, win him back, and then crush his heart. Fair is fair. However, there is one little hiccup, and he has curly brown hair and dimples.
Jesse is everything she wants. With him, she could almost forget her bruised heart. Almost. Julia has one choice: let Liam walk away after everything he did, or lose a chance at love in pursuit of payback.

Before DI Hero Nelson has the chance to get used to his new role as a father to brand-new twins, a murder investigation steals his attention. When a second victim is discovered on his patch, Hero has his eye on a single perpetrator for both murders - but the suspect has a solid alibi for both crimes.

When Saskia Hartley and her nine-year-old son are run down outside a restaurant, DI Nelson knows it is no ordinary hit-and-run incident. He's looking at a homicide case... and the evidence points to the brutal Krull Gang. When two prostitutes are murdered, but little interest is given to the women on the Krull's payroll, Nelson connects the dots.  DI Nelson has to decide whether he's dealing with a turf war or something far more sinister.

JD Nelson Spotlight & Multi-Prize Giveaway

JD Nelson a self proclaimed procrastinator that thinks coffee pretty much fixes everything, lives in California with her amazing husband and three cats that think they are dogs.  A multi-published author with Chaste Moon Publishing doesn't write like a procrastinator.  Her work includes the "Night Aberrations Series", "Wicked Ways Series", and two upcoming stand alone novels to be released this year.  She also has a young adult novel in the works under the pen name Adeline Wright.

 "Wolves Will Be Wolves" The second book in the Wicked Ways Series is scheduled to release this month.
Intended for adult readers 18+
                                        Oswin Morris ruined my life.  He really did.
I know most people would be happy to be mated to a sexy, drool worthy male like him, but not me. Maybe, it's because he left me high and dry three years ago on my deathbed, or maybe, it's because he refuses to annul our wedding, so I can marry my maker.  Who can tell anymore? All I know is that it's time for this Nymph to get her life back, and if I have to huff and puff to blow the Alpha Wolf's house down to get it, I will. No More Mrs. Nice Mate.

"A Night Of Wickedness" Book One of the Wicked Way Series is available at  Amazon  Barnes & Noble  Kobo  Intended for adult readers 18 +

Obsidian Raines is everything I hate in a new neighbor.  He's smart, sexy, and a wealthy vampire.  Now, I know what you're thinking.  He sounds hot, right?  Well, he is hot, but that's not the point.  If you were a nymph you would understand.  Life for us is no picnic.  Most of us end up stalkers, sex addicts, and prostitutes.  I am no exception to this rule, which is why I was sent to the middle of nowhere Alabama to be alone.  How was I supposed to know that he would destroy all of my therapist's progress with the first word that came out of his brooding, sarcastic mouth?  Between Obsidian and my new friendship with Alpha werewolf, Oswin Morris, I'm pretty sure that my "punishment" will turn out to be a catastrophe only a nymph could be capable of.

Purgatorium Cover
PURGATORIUM The First Book in the series is currently free for download.

Seventeen year-old Daphne Janus is floored when her parents agree to let her accompany her best friend to a getaway resort on an island off the coast of California. She doesn't know her parents have sent her to the Purgatorium as a last-ditch effort to save their child.  Her best friend and life-long neighbor takes her to a mostly uninhabited island with a wildlife preserve on one side and Chumash Indian ruins on the “haunted” side. The resort might be beautiful, the beach pristine, and the views from the headland amazing, but strange things begin to happen that soon have Daphne running for her life. At first she finds the therapeutic games thrilling: the ghosts that visit her room, the dropping elevator, and the kayak incident are actually kind of fun once she recovers from them. But when her horse bucks her off during a trail ride and she becomes lost on the haunted side of the island, it’s not fun anymore, and she wonders if her parents have sent her there to help her or to punish her. Watch the book trailer (43 sec.).

Death may be the only way I can live....

The Center is destroyed. Mandy and Georgia have their own place near campus and are ready to start their new lives as college students. All that's missing is Mandy's steamy relationship with Zach. His sudden distance and irritability has Mandy wondering...

Nate Ashcroft, a beautiful, but mysterious, guy literally falls into Mandy's life, shattering her already unstable relationship with Zach.

Three months ago, my twin sister, Georgia, and I had to die so our loved ones would be safe from the scientists hunting us. After months of searching, we’re close to finding the one person who can help us find closure, Georgia’s adoptive mother, Lois.

Snowstorms and an unexpected run-in with GenCorp, the latest entity charged with capturing us, delay our mission and break our spirits. The only light in my supernaturally chaotic life is Nate. He’s given up everything to protect and take care of me, and each minute I’m with him confirms how much I love him. Finally ready to share my heart again, I take the next step, admitting my true feelings.

The mad scientists who want to tear me apart and use my body for a freak show, once again taint my happiness with a disturbing technology that rips Nate from my arms. As I battle GenCorp’s warped technology to save my soulmate, I’m faced with the vivid reality: the Nate I knew and fell in love with may be lost forever.

And if I get him back, will I still be able to say those three precious words?
