How to Run Away From Home:

And Bring Your Family With You

by Adam Dailey  (Author)

51fqbpnA8CLPerhaps you’ve dreamed of escaping the stress of your everyday routine by taking a year off to explore the world with your loved ones. Maybe you’ve thought about changing your life but dismissed it as impossible. It’s not. The Dailey family did it, and Adam is here to show you how to take the plunge and stop making excuses.

Adam Dailey’s history as a professional athlete, entrepreneur, sports marketer and speaker has shown that he’s always followed his passion. When he put his professional life on hold to take a twelve month “family sabbatical,” the future of his business was uncertain and his young school-aged son was struggling with a sensory disorder. But instead of waiting for a “right time” that might never come, Adam, his wife, and their four small children set off on an epic global trek.

How to Run Away From Home is an essential how-to guide as well as a fascinating tale that includes castles, narrowly avoiding Brazilian prison, and swimming with dolphins. Dailey supplies all you’ll need for your own successful sabbatical—from how to plan and finance it to schooling on the road to dealing with the unexpected and managing obligations back home.

There are risks, but the rewards are enormous. All it takes is spontaneity, flexibility, and the courage to take the leap!

Fantasy Author, Dianna L. Gunn:

Website | Twitter | Newsletter

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Oh boy, what do I say? I’m a freelance writer by day, a fantasy author by night, and a massive nerd all the time. I play lots of RPGs—mostly video games, although I am hoping to do more tabletop role playing this year—and read less books than I should, but more books than a lot of people I know.

What types of books do you write, and why?

I write alternate world fantasy, both YA and adult books, usually with a darker bent. Why I write these books is a bit more complicated. First and foremost, fantasy is the genre I’ve spent the most time in and these are the stories that pop into my head, often in my dreams. But when I’m building my world, fleshing out my characters and adding details to these stories I am also focusing on something bigger: challenging fantasy stereotypes.

To challenge these stereotypes I write strong female characters with true agency. I create worlds where strong women are accepted, not an anomaly. Many of these worlds also have very different attitudes towards sexuality, gender and relationships. Most importantly, I show my characters having a wide range of relationships, both sexual and otherwise.

You can find the full interview on Halon Chronicles:

KeeperoftheDawn_FrontCover-1-664x1024.jpgKeeper of the Dawn

Sometimes failure is just the beginning

All Lai has ever wanted is to become a priestess, like her mother and grandmother before her, in service to their beloved goddess. That’s before the unthinkable happens, and Lai fails the trials she has trained for her entire life. She makes the only choice she believes she can: she runs away.

From her isolated desert homeland, Lai rides north to the colder, stranger kingdom of Alanum—a land where magic, and female warriors, are not commonplace.

Here, she hears tales about a mountain city of women guardians and steel forgers, worshiping goddesses who sound very similar to Lai’s own. Determined to learn more about these women, these Keepers of the Dawn, Lai travels onward to find their temple. She is determined to make up for her past failure, and will do whatever it takes to join their sacred order.

Falling in love with another initiate was not part of the plan.

Keeper of the Dawn is a tale of new beginnings, second chances, and the endurance of hope.

The Hundredth Queen (The Hundredth Queen Series Book 1)

by Emily R. King  (Author)

Emily R King The Hundredth QueenIn Emily R. King’s thrilling fantasy debut, an orphan girl blossoms into a warrior, summoning courage and confidence in her fearless quest to upend tradition, overthrow an empire, and reclaim her life as her own.

As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood in the ancient Tarachand Empire, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.

But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.

Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.

Her first novel Miss Caramel took her five years to write after a situation where she lost her home, had no computer, and had to live in her car.

Nisha takes pride in motivating others and in spite of the dark past she takes part in being quirky, funny, and fun.

We All Looked Up

We All Looked Up

by Tommy Wallach  (Author)

Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in Tommy Wallach’s New York Times bestselling “stunning debut” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can’t wait to escape Seattle—and her reputation—and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn’t understand all the fuss about college and career—the future can wait.

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they’re going to spend what remains of the present.

Tempest Day is an expert on helping others find love through her Connection Parties matchmaking service and the methods outlined in her bestselling book, Love Simplified. She’s one step away from becoming a celebrity matchmaker, the pinnacle of her career dreams.

But when a seemingly simple interview on the nation’s most popular daytime television show takes an ugly turn, Tempest is forced to admit a secret she’s carried for years: She’s never been in love. The fallout is immediate and severe. So severe that the only way to fix the damage is to use her own methods on a reality TV show.

Tempest soon discovers that love is anything but simple. The show and its cranky but handsome associate producer, Lance Moretti, challenges all that Tempest thought she knew about relationships, even her relationship with God. What starts as a desperate attempt to repair her reputation turns into Tempest’s biggest love connection ever.

The You I’ve Never Known

The You I’ve Never Known

by Ellen Hopkins  (Author)

How do you live your life if your past is based on a lie? A new novel in both verse and prose from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins.

For as long as she can remember, it’s been just Ariel and Dad. Ariel’s mom disappeared when she was a baby. Dad says home is wherever the two of them are, but Ariel is now seventeen and after years of new apartments, new schools, and new faces, all she wants is to put down some roots. Complicating things are Monica and Gabe, both of whom have stirred a different kind of desire.

Maya’s a teenager who’s run from an abusive mother right into the arms of an older man she thinks she can trust. But now she’s isolated with a baby on the way, and life’s getting more complicated than Maya ever could have imagined.

Ariel and Maya’s lives collide unexpectedly when Ariel’s mother shows up out of the blue with wild accusations: Ariel wasn’t abandoned. Her father kidnapped her fourteen years ago.

What is Ariel supposed to believe? Is it possible Dad’s woven her entire history into a tapestry of lies? How can she choose between the mother she’s been taught to mistrust and the father who has taken care of her all these years?

In bestselling author Ellen Hopkins’s deft hands, Ariel’s emotionally charged journey to find out the truth of who she really is balances beautifully with Maya’s story of loss and redemption. This is a memorable portrait of two young women trying to make sense of their lives and coming face to face with themselves—for both the last and the very first time.

Ellen Hopkins

I was adopted at birth and raised by a great, loving older couple. I grew up in Palm Springs CA, although we summered in Napa and Lake Tahoe, to avoid those 120 degree summers. After my adopted parents died, I did find my birth mother, who lives in Michigan with my half sister.

 

I studied journalism in college, but left school to marry, raise kids and start my own business–a video store, before the mega-chains were out there. After a divorce, I met my current husband and we moved to Tahoe to become ski bums and otherwise try to find our dreams. At that time, I went to work for a small alternative press, writing stories and eventually editing.

When we moved down the mountain to the Reno area, I started writing nonfiction books, many of which you can see here. The rest are viewable on my personal website. I also continued to freelance articles for newspapers and magazines.

All that has changed, with the publication of my novel, CRANK, which has led to a valued career writing YA novels in verse, all of which explore the more difficult situations young adults often find themselves in. Will I ever write one in prose? No doubt! But, for the moment, writing novels in verse fulfills two needs: writing poetry and writing fiction. The combination is so interesting!

F*CK Him!

F*CK Him!

Nice Girls Always Finish Single

– “A guide for sassy women who want to get back in control of their love life” (The Truth about his weird behavior, … of commitment and sudden loss of interest)

Brian Nox  (Author)

The MANipulator Manual:

Keep Your Man Interested and Begging for More Without Playing Games

Let me start off by explaining I am in no way talking about the sexual act. F*ck him in this case is not physical, it’s mental.

So many women get in trouble in their love lives, and 99.9 percent of that trouble could have been avoided if they’d said, “Well, f*ck him!” a bit more often. Too many women are way too nice and compliant to their men, especially when these men don’t deserve that kind of treatment.

And yet, every woman I’ve ever met tries to not be needy or wear her heart on her sleeve. She simply wants to protect her feelings. Nevertheless, most women I’ve coached have had men seem very interested only to disappear suddenly. These women are left standing in the dark. Once the guy vanishes, they often find out it’s easier to get the President of the United States on the phone than the man who seemingly really liked them…just not enough to stick around.

This should stop.

It Should’ve Been Me

by ReShonda Tate Billingsley  (Author), Victoria Christopher Murray  (Author)

Lights, camera, action…

Tamara Collins is poised to become the next great American actress. The problem is Hollywood doesn’t know that just yet…..and since her bills aren’t paying themselves, Tamara signs on to star in the new stageplay, It Should’ve Been Me. Get in, get out, get paid…that’s all Tamara wants to do. But her co-stars – including Donovan Dobbs, her ex that left her at the altar and Camille Woods, a young starlet with a serious grudge – could make this the worst decision Tamara’s ever made.

Whatever it takes…

Playwright/producer Gwen Tanner Weinstein has decided if her neglectful husband can’t give her love, she’ll take his money. And use it to make her stageplay dreams come true. She’s put together an amazing cast, sold out shows across the country and is ready to take her rightful reign as one of the top play producers in the country. If only she can keep the drama contained to the stage….and that sexy young merchandising guy out of her bed….

From shady crew members, to unscrupulous paparazzi, It Should’ve Been Me is bound to be turned into real life drama that will rival anything that could ever happen on the stage.

Once, while hiking, she saw a snow-white buck which allowed her to follow it nearly half a mile.

Q. The Book The Order of Moonlight is A Vampire Romance is a paranormal Journey of Love Have you had a paranormal experience if Author Interview Stamp smallso do you care to share?

Yes, I have had a few paranormal experiences, but the one that jumps out to the forefront of my mind was one night when I went with a group of friends to the movies as a teenager. The movies neighbored the creepy Winchester Mystery House. We had some time to kill before the movie and popped over to the Winchester Mystery House to look around the lobby. Tours were over for the night, but one of the sweet older staff members, in full period costume, told a friend and me that sometimes ghosts appear to visitors via the window or in various spots of the house. She assured us that they were friendly. I am brave, but in some cases, I do embrace my inner chicken. That is code for, I am a card-carrying Scooby and Shaggy type of chicken when it comes to possible spooky encounters, not a fan of the scary, so friendly ghosts or not, in that moment, I was done entirely at Chez Creepy House. With that, I booked it back to the safety of the theater and when I looked back at the house I saw someone in the upstairs window. Later I found out that not only was that figure not supposed to be upstairs in the window, but no one else outside of myself and a friend saw the woman who had spoken to us. Needless to say, to this day, with the jury being out if that woman I talked to was a ghost or not, I don’t make it a habit of going too close to that place. That was enough ghostbuster excitement and fun for this girl. (Giggles.) Continue reading The Order of Moonlight

Shadows of the Stone Benders

Shadows of the Stone Benders

(The Anlon Cully Chronicles Book 1)

by K Patrick Donoghue  (Author)

For fans of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon novels, a riveting archaeological mystery.

World-renowned scientist Anlon Cully is unexpectedly swept into the thick of a suspense-riddled adventure when his archaeologist uncle, Devlin Wilson, dies under suspicious circumstances.

Prior to his “accidental” fall off a New Hampshire mountain trail, Devlin made the discovery of a lifetime – unearthing undeniable proof that a technologically advanced society thrived on Earth long before archaeologists thought possible!

The key to this shocking evidence lies in a set of mysterious stones forged by a long forgotten race of ancient mariners. Instilled with formidable powers to build, communicate, fight and heal, the stones draw the ruthless attention of villainous thieves hell bent on their acquisition by any means possible…including murder.

Aided by friend Pebbles McCarver and police detective Jennifer Stevens, Anlon follows traces of bewildering clues left by his uncle in a dangerous chase to unravel the stones’ secrets before the killer strikes again and escapes with the priceless artifacts.

Peppered with the thought provoking intrigue of a Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child thriller, Shadows of the Stone Benders leaves readers questioning the technological prowess of modern man and the belief that Neolithic humans were nothing more than unsophisticated cave dwellers.

Between Two Worlds

Between Two Worlds

Lessons from the Other Side

by Tyler Henry  (Author)

From Tyler Henry, a twenty-year-old clairvoyant and star of E!’s hit reality series Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, comes Between Two Worlds, a memoir about his journey as a medium thus far.

“Dying doesn’t mean having to say goodbye.”

Tyler Henry discovered his gift for communicating with the departed when he was just ten years old. After experiencing a sudden, accurate premonition of his grandmother’s death—what Tyler would later describe as his first experience of “knowingness”—life would never be the same. Now in his twenties, Tyler is a renowned, practicing medium, star of the smash hit E! reality show, Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, and go-to clairvoyant of celebrities, VIP’s, and those simply looking for closure and healing. He has worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest names including Khloe Kardashian, Amber Rose, Margaret Cho, Jaime Pressly, and Monica Potter.

Despite struggling to accept his rare talent, Tyler grew to embrace it, and finally found the courage to share it with—and ultimately change—the world. For the first time, Tyler pulls back the curtain on living life as a medium in his first memoir, in which he fearlessly opens up about discovering his gift as an adolescent, what it’s truly like to communicate with those who have passed, the power of symbolism in his readings, and the lessons we can learn from our departed loved ones. With unparalleled honesty, Tyler discusses how his complex and fascinating gift has changed his perception of the afterlife, and more importantly, how readings can impact our relationships with our closest friends and family once they’re gone.
