Happy Howloween Blog Hop #HopswithHeart

By the number of blog hops I’ve participated in this month, it must be obvious that I love Halloween. This blog hop, sponsored by www.hopswithheart.blogspot.com, has a Grand Prize of a $50 Amazon gift card. There’s a link to the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the page.

But, since you’re here, why don’t you have a look around? I’m giving away a print copy of my debut novel, The Watcher, a YA paranormal romance about angels and demons.

The Watcher Final Cover


Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but
not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.

Excerpt from The Watcher:

Instead of saying more, he brushed his fingertips along my cheek, and his halo glimmered. I could hear the waves slapping the rocks behind us, the wind driving them in. That same wind whipped against my skin, but the touch of his hand on my face was all I could think about. It sent a current through both of us and filled me with longing for something I wasn’t sure I understood.

“I’m sorry.” He stepped back and shoved his hands into his pockets as the light around him faded. “You don’t know what it’s like. Being near you now, remembering those moments we had…” His hair blew into his eyes, but this time he didn’t move. I wanted to brush it back, but I didn’t know how he’d react. Would touching him be bad?

“You want to know who you were?” he asked. “You may look different, but you’re the same. I look into your eyes and see you.” He took in a deep breath, fixing his attention on the horizon. I’d seen and heard so much now that the logical part of my brain had long since given up arguing with me. I could feel what he was saying was true. All of it.


This hop is now over. Congratulations to the winner!

    My favorite Halloween past-time is writing. I’m not one much for candy and dressing up, but it is fun to see what all the children dress up as. 😉

    My favorite scary movie is the shinning! It doesn’t matter how many times i’ve seen it, it stills scares me, Happy Halloween

    I don’t have a favorite Halloween read yet because I find that it is really hard to be scared by a story. But then, it’s not like the scariest movies scare me either. I am planning on reading Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake maybe.

    It’s not the scariest book but Compulsion by Martina Boone was an amazing Fall read! There’s just enough spooky to make it perfect for Halloween. prettylittlepages[at]gmail[dot]com
