Book Blitz: Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner PLUS Excerpt and Giveaway

Today we're taking part in the book blitz for ICE MASSACRE by Tiana Warner.

Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner
Publication date: September 18th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

A mermaid’s supernatural beauty serves one purpose: to lure a sailor to his death.

The Massacre is supposed to bring peace to Eriana Kwai. Every year, the island sends its warriors to battle these hostile sea demons. Every year, the warriors fail to return. Desperate for survival, the island must decide on a new strategy. Now, the fate of Eriana Kwai lies in the hands of twenty battle-trained girls and their resistance to a mermaid’s allure.

Eighteen-year-old Meela has already lost her brother to the Massacre, and she has lived with a secret that’s haunted her since childhood. For any hope of survival, she must overcome the demons of her past and become a ruthless mermaid killer.

For the first time, Eriana Kwai’s Massacre warriors are female, and Meela must fight for her people’s freedom on the Pacific Ocean’s deadliest battleground.

FREE during the blitz!

Somewhere on the Pacific Ocean
The young man aimed his crossbow at the water, ready to fire a bolt of solid iron at the first glimpse of flesh beneath the surface.
“Sir,” he said, “shouldn’t we have seen one by now?”
The captain turned his back to the salty wind, jaw tight. “They know we’re here.”
“So what are they doing?”
He followed the captain’s gaze. Blackness merged with the empty grey horizon in every direction. A long silence passed, filled only by gentle swells lapping against the ship.
The captain drew his own crossbow.
“Forming a plan.”
All twenty men aboard the ship readied their weapons, reacting in a chain until the last man at the stern took steady aim at the waves.
“Make ready your iron, men,” shouted the captain. “We have ripples approaching off the port side.”
A handful of places in the water puckered, as if something lingered just below the surface. The sea was too black to tell.
Then it happened. Fifty, maybe sixty sea demons burst from the water and slammed against the ship. The men wasted no time. They reacted with trained speed and agility as the demons thrust stones and jagged shells into the wood, both to break holes in the ship and to scale the sides. The men picked them off with bolts of iron and watched them fall one by one back into the sea.
But they were outnumbered. Soon the demons were upon the ship, pulling themselves across the deck with bony arms.
The young man had already shot a dozen and the water reddened with each passing second.
Slow scraping sounds threatened him from behind. He whirled around, crossbow ready. Burning eyes met his, and sharp teeth, bared to rip into his flesh. He gripped the trigger, felt the bow tighten—
And the demon was gone. The young man stared into the wide gaze of a girl his own age. With a startled cry, he jerked his aim so the bolt barely missed her.
She held a black shell in her hand, sharp at the edges and ready to use as a club. But she didn’t raise it. She just looked at him.
He lowered his crossbow.
Her blonde hair fell heavily over her shoulders, dripping beads of water down her naked chest and stomach, pooling where her torso joined her tail.
He blinked, but made no other motion—where her torso joined her tail. Scales faded into flesh like some sort of beautiful, green and tan sunset.
She pulled herself closer.
“Stay back,” said the young man, unsure what prompted him to hesitate.
He looked into her eyes—emeralds surrounded by pearl white—where moments ago they had burned red. Her sharp teeth had retracted behind rosy lips. The seaweed-coloured flesh of her upper body was now olive and raised with goose bumps from the icy wind.
Hanu aii,” she whispered. Do not fear. She spoke his language.
He loosened his grip on the crossbow, studying her. She lifted a frail arm and pushed the hair from her eyes, then motioned him forwards.
His pulse quickened as he stared at the beautiful girl.
Hanu aii,” she said again, her voice resonating sweetly, as if she sang without singing.
Suddenly, he was kneeling in front of her, level with her luminous eyes. The sounds around him faded but for the soft purr in the base of her throat.
She reached up and held an icy hand to his cheek, not for a moment breaking eye contact. The hand slid behind his head and pulled his face towards hers, slowly but firmly. He inhaled her sweet breath.
He flinched. He turned to see the captain racing towards them, aiming his crossbow at the maiden.
The young man grasped the scene around him. The ship was empty. A few stray weapons and barrels bobbed serenely in the water. Blood soaked the deck in places, and even the main mast had a splatter across the bottom.
The captain fired wide. Before he could reload and aim again, the sea demon put a hand on the young man’s chin and pulled his gaze back to hers.
Her eyes blazed red. Her skin rippled into the rotten colour of seaweed. Her ears grew pointed and long like sprouting coral. She opened her mouth to reveal a row of deadly teeth.
The young man screamed.
The demon pulled him against her with more strength than three men combined, and they dove headfirst off the side of the ship.
They disappeared into the blood-red water.

Tiana Warner was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. She enjoys riding her horse, Bailey, and collecting tea cups.

Interview with Emma Grey, Author of Unrequited

Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, the world's biggest boy band. Is she the only girl in Sydney who can't be bothered with perfect-looking Angus Marsden?

Give her 5 Seconds of Summer. Now.

Or maybe the seriously-hot med student who rescued her on a train—and who could be Douglas Booth's twin! Perfect formal partner, much?

But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsden himself, things start to get complicated. Very. Throw in a deranged female popstar, final exams, a part in the musical and a mum who just doesn't get it—and where is her best friend?

When did life get so crazy? Kat's just an ordinary schoolgirl.

Isn't she?


Read the first three chapters at: www.unrequited.com.au

About the Author

Emma Grey has two teenage girls, a three-year-old boy, a couple of businesses and another teen novel in the pipeline. Her first book, 'Wits' End Before Breakfast! Confessions of a Working Mum' was published in 2005. 



What does being an author bring to your life?

It’s really about the magic of escapism. The world is a scary place at times and we all have problems to deal with and things that we find difficult. It’s nice to have somewhere to ‘go’ (even if that place is inside your own head) where you can really ‘play’. It’s similar to reading or getting lost in a great movie—you just forget who you are for a while.

Your two books couldn’t really be more different. Your first was based on your real life (auto-biographical) and written for an audience predominantly made up of mothers. Your second is a novel for teenage girls about a topic close to many of their hearts. What are differences between writing for two such different audiences and on such polar topics?

The old advice is to ‘write what you know’. When I wrote my first book, I was a frantic mum of two little girls, working, studying and totally over-committing my time. With this book, I’m the mum of two teenage girls and their world and language and challenges are very ‘real’ to me (and remind me of feeling the same way when I was their age).

No matter what you’re writing, I think it’s really important that you understand it closely, and you’re able to be right in the ‘headspace’ of your ideal readers. Otherwise they’ll call you out on it!

When your first book was published, social media wasn’t really around. For your second, is it almost a necessity to use it? Could you reach your target audience without it?

It has completely changed since 2005 when my first book was published. The big focus for marketing then was radio and magazines. Now it’s social media and blogs, which is much more immediate and there’s simply more ‘of it’, so way more opportunities to reach new readers. It’s interesting to ponder how the situation will look in another ten years, and what that will mean for authors and readers.

Your first book was published, your second self-published. What are the pros and cons of each?

 I chose to self-publish Unrequited as a bit of an experiment, and didn’t approach any publishers with the manuscript. The main differences are control and timing. With self-publishing you have much more of a say in things like the cover design and date of release. Of course, there’s way more for you to coordinate too, which means finding editors, typesetters, designers, printers etc — all the stuff that a publishing house usually does for you. You’re also fully in control of marketing and promotion, and that’s an ongoing task, although with a publishing house they only really focus on new titles for a few weeks, before focusing on their next set of new books.

My advice to any budding self-publishers is to ‘Go Pro’ in certain areas. DO engage a professional editor and proof-reader and have the cover designed by a graphic artist (unless you have that skill yourself).

Book Excerpt: The Sending by Jandy Salguero

sending tour

The SendingThe Sending

A city's peace is shattered when two university students go missing, and only Daneel and his friends know the shocking truth of what happened. Finding themselves under attack, Daneel leads them in a race to escape the mounting violence.

Mara is willing to kill for the beliefs of the faction that raised her. But as she seeks out her mark, using a rare, mystical form of travel known as the Sending, Mara discovers a powerful connection that challenges the truth of everything she’s been taught.

While Daneel fights to protect those he cares for, Mara must choose whether to cling to the ideology of her home—or open her scarred heart to a searing attraction and the promise of a new life.

Praise for The Sending

The Sending reads like a dystopian Romeo and Juliet where strong, full characters from very different places inevitably collide with passion and conflict. Salguero fills a fresh, vibrant world with a nerve-tingling fast plot. Prepare to be immersed. ~Tamara Ward, author of Hidden Betrayal

The Sending is a thrilling, fast-paced, science fiction-romance that's impossible to put down. Edge-of-your-seat action scenes, and a romantic attraction so intense that it will make you want to turn down the air conditioning, The Sending is a great read that left me hungry for more. I loved this book! ~Sterling R. Walker, author of The Orphan Ship

Her days are full of grade-school antics and underfoot toddler toys-- courtesy of her two handsome boys. She is currently working on Book 2 in the Senitha's Light series, due out in early 2015.  


“Mara.” His face softened. “I’m not your enemy. I thought you understood that by now. Don’t treat me like one.”

“Understanding something and acting on it are two different things.” She faced him full-on now, the challenge upfront and center. “I’ve spent years believing one thing, fighting for this one thing. You can’t just undo that in a day.” She swiped at a lock of hair that had fallen into her eyes, tucked it behind her ear and held on to her control.

“I get it, but you’ll figure it out...”

“Yes.” She cut him off, her voice growing louder, higher. “I’m sure I will. Why? Because I have no choice. I never had a choice. The one thing I ever really had a choice about was to accept my calling, to be the most worthy of it that I could be. And for what?” She spat the words out, grew angrier with each syllable of truth that emerged. “To come here and find out that I’ve only ever been a pawn in someone else’s game? That the person I’ve become doesn’t matter in the slightest?”

“But you never intended—”

She pushed a hand into his chest, despite the sting of the contact. “Intended? You think intention matters now? Look at me, Daneel, really look at me.” Daneel eyed the blade, brow wrinkled.

“Does this blade have intention? No, because it’s just a tool.” She threw to the ground where it buried itself to the hilt between their feet. “Without a wielder, it’s less than nothing.”

As I am, she thought.

She stared down at the knife. The one she’d nearly used to end his life.

Release Day Blitz: The Last One by Tawdra Kandle


The anticipated spin-off series of THE POSSE is finally here!

Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster: her widowed mother just married a long-time family friend. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone's life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan's looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.

But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.

Sam Reynolds doesn't need excitement, and he doesn't want romance. Fun is out of the question. He's been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.

When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won't be easy. Sam's tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change. . .maybe more than he can handle.

Nobody ever said love was simple.

"As an almost strictly paranormal romance reader, it takes a certain type of author to convince me to dive into straight romance. Tawdra Kandle is one of the few authors I will make an exception for. Her writing style is so easy and relaxing that I have to really keep an eye on the time or I’ll stay up all night to finish one of her books." Carrie Williams, Goodreads Reviewer

"Wow. Talk about romance with an edge. From the beginning the characters were so real that I was completely invested in them. The sexual tension woven into the story added so much value to the relationships. I will be reading this book many times just so I can spend more time with Meghan and Sam." Cheryl Garrett, Goodreads Reviewer

"I'm in love with this book!!" Leah Fennick, Goodreads Reviewer

Cover Reveal: The Oath by Apryl Baker

Today we're taking part in the cover reveal for THE OATH by USA Today bestselling author Apryl Baker. Take a look!

The Oath
Book 2 of The Coven Series
By Apryl Baker
Release Date: 10/07/2014

She killed herself.

Everyone asked why, but when I got my hands on my sister's diary, I understood exactly why.

I stared at the girl in the mirror as I removed my nose ring. Gone was the black hair, replaced by golden blonde locks that made my sapphire blue eyes shine and my California sun-kissed skin glow. The Goth chic clothes had been put away and I wore a pink tank top and a pair of khaki colored Capri’s. Stylish sandals completed the outfit. I wanted to barf.

The snotty little would-be witches would pay for what they'd done. By the end of the week, they’d all be praying to whatever god they worshiped to hide them from the hell coming for them.

May the Fates have mercy upon them, because they would pay the same price they’d demanded of her.

Their lives.

About the Author
So who am I? Well, I'm the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn't love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there's always someone to tell your mama on you. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled "Lord Margrave's Deception." I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my family and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce...lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Fire in the Woods Blog Tour: Interview with Jennifer M Eaton

Today we're taking part in the FIRE IN THE WOODS blog tour by chatting with author Jennifer M. Eaton. Come get to know Jennifer and her book, and be sure to enter the Rafflecopter at the end of the post.

Hi, Jennifer! Welcome to We Do Write. Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a mom of three kids under 13 and a full-grown husband. We live on the east coast of the USA with a menagerie of pets (Including my two brand-new hermit crabs!) and our house is run by a fifty-pound standard poodle.

Tell our readers a bit about FIRE IN THE WOODS

I’d love to! FIRE IN THE WOODS is a high-paced, action-adventure, chase, science fiction, young adult romance. How’s that for a mix of genres?

FIRE IN THE WOODS is about a seventeen-year-old girl who goes for a walk in the woods and has her life changed forever when she decides to help an injured boy she finds curled up beneath a tree.

While the story will be labeled science fiction because there are aliens in the plotline, I was really striving to write a story that transcends genre. It is undoubtedly a romance, but it is also about two people running for their lives. It is an action adventure, but it is also about people overcoming their differences. The story is high-paced, but the characters come up for air so the reader is not always on the edge of their seat. I think there is something in this story that will appeal to everyone.

Sounds cool. How did the idea of the story come to you?

I like to write short stories between novels – sort of a writer’s way to “clean the pallet” before moving on to the next course. Fire was supposed to be a quick, 10,000 word novella about a girl who trips over an alien boy in the woods. Imagine my surprise when the story took off to places I never dreamed of!

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

I used to be a big pantser. Writing was a recreational sport to me, kind of like watching television with complete control over what happens. A few years ago, I started outlining (very loose outlining) and I have found it incredibly helpful for keeping me on track. I have nowhere near as many deleted scenes now compared to when I was “pantsing” and I don’t get “lost” or write myself into a corner.

What’s the hardest part of writing for you?

The hardest part of writing is stopping once I get started. Once I get “into the groove” I can write for a really long time, but unfortunately “real life” needs some attention, too, and I need to stop.

What do you absolutely have to have nearby when writing?

I like to have a green Gatorade (cut with 50% water) and something crunchy like pretzels. In really deep-writing mode, I’ll slip a little dark chocolate in. Other than that, I just need a keyboard, a computer, and a quiet room.

Yes, quiet is important. What are you reading right now?

I just started reading “Call me Grim” by Elizabeth Holloway. It is a story about a girl who has to choose between dying and becoming a reaper. I’ve only read two chapters, but I am enjoying it so far.

It's a great book, trust me! If you could have any super power, what would it be?

I think I would like to fly. Traffic is really overrated. Why not fly right over everyone? And how much fun could I have tormenting my poodle if I were flying over her head? Good times!

What's the weirdest thing you've googled?

Ha! Probably how much a Newfoundland (very large dog) drools. One of my stories features this breed, and I wanted to make it believable. I ran into someone walking a Newfoundland one day and asked them tons of questions I could not find online (like how big their poop was) Very funny!

Finish this sentence: If I'm not writing, I'm probably

 ... Sleeping. Geeze, I am a boring person. But right now, that is what my schedule is like. I have some pretty tight deadlines.

Here’s the part where you thank the people who are supporting you. Let's hear your shout outs.

I’d like to give a big shout out to my army of beta readers that toiled endlessly over FIRE IN THE WOODS. They all know who they are. (There is an extensive list at the end of the novel if anyone wants to read all the names.)

I’d also like to wave emphatically at any new fans that stumble across FIRE IN THE WOODS and fall in love with my characters. Don’t be shy! I’d love to hear from you! Email me any time at Jennifer-eaton [at] Comcast [dot] net

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog to chat with us, Jennifer!

Thank you so much for having me. It’s been fun!

The Emissary Blog Tour: Interview with Kristal Shaff

Today we're taking part in the blog tour for THE EMISSARY by chatting with author Kristal Shaff. Let's get to know more about Kristal and her book!
Hi, Kristal! Welcome to We Do Write. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a mom of 3 amazing kids, 16, 14, and 11. We live on a farm in Iowa with an embarrassing number of pets. When I’m not being a taxi mom, I’m a writer of fantasy fiction and a professional face painter on weekends.  We are also waiting for our 4th child through the journey of adoption.
Wow, that's wonderful! Tell our readers a bit about THE EMISSARY.
For hundreds of years, dark clouds covered the skies of Adamah, and an ageless king ruled. Those who emerged with one of six extraordinary Shay powers were forced into the king's army, an unmatched force with inhuman Strength, Speed, Accuracy, Perception, Empathy, and Healing. With the army behind him, the king—a man who wields all six abilities—was invincible and unquestioned in his rule. To most, serving the king was an honor. But for others, it was a fate worse than death. 
When seventeen-year-old Nolan Trividar witnesses the transformation of his brother from kind to cruel after entering the king’s army, he vows never to follow the same path. 
So when his own power—the Shay of Accuracy—comes upon him at the Tournament of Awakening, Nolan conceals his emergence instead of joining the king’s ranks. For years, he traitorously hides his power, pretending to be only a gifted scribe. But when Nolan comes face -to-face with a deserter, the man discovers his secret. 
To evade detection and a death sentence, Nolan escapes with the deserter and flees into a night filled with dark creatures who steal both powers and souls. He joins a resistance, a village hidden deep in the forest, filled with others who secretly wield a Shay. But his peace is short-lived when they discover that the dark clouds, undead creatures, their own decreasing powers, and even the king, are all connected.

Sounds intense. How did the idea of the story come to you?
I’ve been an avid lover of superheroes, even as a child I remember standing in line for hours to see Christopher Reeve in Superman. (Superman has always been my favorite). I’ve also been fascinated with knights and chivalry, and I made yearly trips to our local Renaissance Faire in my teen years. I decided to stick my love of superpowers and knights together into one concept, and that was how THE EMISSARY was born.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Um, a little of both. I tend to have a broad idea of what I want and then fill in the holes as I go along. I find some of my best ideas come when the story completes it for me. My most recent WIP has been almost completely pantsing. In some ways, I find it very fun, but when you reach a point where you don’t know what is going to happen, it makes things more complicated. I was required to write a detailed synopsis to the Emissary’s sequel, then ended up completely changing it by the time I finished the book. So I am a combination of a plotter and a pantser.
What’s the hardest part of writing for you?
The draft. I much prefer editing and reshaping. Getting the framework down I find challenging.
What do you absolutely have to have nearby when writing?
I typically have a mug of coffee—usually cold by the time I’m done with it. Also, I need quiet and solitude. Even someone sitting in the room will get an evil glare.
Those are requirements and guidelines I can totally associate with. What are you reading right now?
I’ve recently started THE NAME OF THE WIND, by Patrick Rothruss.   
Ooh, I heard that's good. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
When I played City of Heroes (it was an online Multi-player game years ago), my favorite combination of powers was flying and healing. I loved soaring over battles and randomly healing people when they were close to death.
If I had to choose only one, I guess some sort of super speed would by handiest with housework and writing.  Wonder what my WPM would be with that power. :)
What's the weirdest thing you've googled?
Oh geeze. Probably things like “How long does it take a corpse to smell?” Or when I’ve researched poisons.
Finish this sentence: If I'm not writing, I'm probably ...  
... procrastinating.
Here’s the part where you thank the people who are supporting you. Let's hear your shout outs.
I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family, especially my husband. He’s had to put up with my writing angst for a long time. Also a shout out to my writing friends Michelle McLean, Michelle Gregory, and my local critique partners Joan Mauch and Wayne Sapp. Writing is lonely business without friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by our blog, Kristal. Can't wait to read your book. Enjoy the rest of your tour!

And now for our readers, here's a giveaway for you to enter!
