erin-bedfordWicked Legends, a collection of bestselling novels, introduces Flames of AurielThis is just one of 20 page-turning, full length novels for only $.99! Order your copy today!

When living in a world where the prince isn’t always charming, the princess has a mean right hook, and angels are worshiped like gods, love isn’t always easy to find.
Zoe has never been the lady-like princess she’s read about in fairy-tales, even with her very own handsome prince to sweep her off her feet. She doesn’t know what she dislikes more, his arrogant smirk or the way his gray eyes darken when they fight. Angels help him if he doesn’t keep his hands off the help.

Asher won’t admit it, but he admires the fighting style of his warrior princess. She reminds him of an avenging angel the way her fiery hair whips around her as she takes out her challengers. Dark One help him, but she is as tough an opponent on the battlefield as she is off.

With unknown and unwanted feelings starting to emerge between the two royals, a single goodbye turns into a frantic search for a missing princess. Asher has to find the one woman he never thought he’d miss and keep his kingdom safe from an old enemy. If he fails, the angels may not forgive him this time.

Killers. Thieves. Pirates. Family.

Mercy Kincaid is a fugitive from her own family. Her dangerous telepathic gifts make her a target. So is anyone she gets close to. When her best friend is captured and tortured, Mercy’s only hope is to reunite with the family that tried to murder her as a child. She trusts few among her blood relatives, but finds herself intrigued by an enigmatic and dangerous killer.

Reaper has spent a lifetime watching his people die. He’s vowed to kill anyone who jeopardizes their survival. Mercy’s gifts are the biggest threat they’ve faced in eleven years, since a biological weapon nearly annihilated the pirate colonies. But Reaper realizes her talents can either destroy them, or save them. He must decide if he’s fallen victim to her power, or if he can truly trust the beautiful woman and her compelling abilities. If he makes the wrong choice, everyone dies.

2017 GOALS & ASPEN EVERLASTING BLOG TOUR

2017 GOALS & ASPEN EVERLASTING BLOG TOUR

Wow! I can’t believe it’s 2017! I have so many fun projects this year! The first is to complete Saving Eden, book three in the Original Trilogy. Also, at some point during the year, I’ll write a prequel to the Devil’s Series, titled What Devil’s May Come: Charlie’s Story. I’ve had so many fans ask about him that I just have to share the story of his first love.

Finally, I will begin a new series: Titus Crow, the Last Vampire. I’ve been waiting over a year to begin this project! Super exciting!

The real reason for my post today is to introduce a really good book titled Aspen Everlasting. I’m the first stop on this book’s blog tour. If you get a chance, read this book!

Aspen Foster thinks she’s just a normal sixteen-year-old, but when her car’s caught in a flash flood, Aspen and her sister discover the superhuman strength they never knew they had.

Soon Aspen learns she’s not normal at all. She’s an Evermortal, with powers beyond her wildest dreams. But the more Aspen finds out about her family’s past, the more dangerous her future becomes.

This riveting fantasy is full of action, adventure, and romance. Suspenseful and exhilarating!

My Review

What a great novel from a new author! I love discovering these little gems because I know the authors have a great career ahead of them. This book had many endearing qualities. The first is the humor. There were many places I laughed out loud. The second is the amazing relationships she had with everyone around her: Nate, her parents, and especially her siblings. These believable relationships made me connect with Aspen. I found myself experiencing the same emotions with her as she uncovered the many secrets hidden in her life.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys reading young adult, light paranormal novels. Grab your copy today!

THURSDAY’S RANT – SCHOOL TELLING MY CHILD WHAT TO EAT

THURSDAY’S RANT – SCHOOL TELLING MY CHILD WHAT TO EAT

Before I begin, let me set the stage:

My daughter woke up the other morning complaining of a tummy ache. Because of previous health issues, this isn’t uncommon for her. To help, I decided to send a Sprite in her lunch in case it persisted. This is the first time I’ve ever sent her to school with a soda.

At lunch time, she raised her hand to ask for help in opening the can. The teacher looked at it, then asked, “Who packed your lunch?” Daughter says, “My mom.” The teacher paused, then said, “You need to tell your mom that you need something healthier. And don’t ever bring soda to school again.” I’d expect if my child asked their teacher for physic homework help, but not the teacher shouting at her about packed lunch. I don’t have time to argue with my daughters teachers when I’m juggling so many different things, I’m only just surviving thanks to Blue Apron and collegepaperworld!

Now this comment comes on the heals of another comment made by a woman standing in front of my friend at the grocery store. Woman says, “Do you have any snacks without sugar in it?” Clerk laughs. “Impossible.” Woman says, “My school doesn’t allow any snacks with sugar. I sent my kid with a granola bar to school, but the teacher sent a note home saying that it had chocolate chips in it. If my kid does this again, she’ll get a ticket. If she gets three, she misses recess.”

What is going on? Does this seem extreme to anyone else? As parents can’t we decide what our child eats?

That being said, I get that not all parents teach their kids to eat healthy and as a result we have childhood obesity, which causes all sorts of health issues. I have no problem with banning vending machines in schools. They probably shouldn’t have been there in the first place. If they were there when I was in junior high, I probably would’ve blown all of my meager allowance on candy.

I think schools should teach healthy choices and then the community should promote a healthy lifestyle by offering free classes and training to parents. And I think parents should have the right to send their child to school with a chocolate chip cookie. Or a soda. Or a big, fat Ho Ho.

In our home I teach we eat to live, not we live to eat. As much as I joke about eating, I do try to teach our kids to eat healthy. That doesn’t mean we don’t have the occasional treat or soda. Everything in moderation.

What’s your opinion? Are your children’s schools much different?

Any readers outside of the United States? I’d love to know how this is handled elsewhere.

Wicked Legends, a collection of bestselling novels, introduces Spark RisingThis is just one of 20 page-turning, full length novels for only $.99! Order your copy today!

Two hundred years after the cataclysm that annihilated fossil fuels, Sparks keep electricity flowing through their control of energy-giving Dust. The Council of Nine rebuilt civilization on the backs of Sparks, offering citizens a comfortable life in a relo-city in exchange for power, particularly over the children able to fuel the future. The strongest of the boys are taken as Wards and raised to become elite agents, the Council’s enforcers and spies. Strong girls–those who could advance the rapidly evolving matrilineal power–don’t exist. Not according to the Council.

Lena Gracey died as a child, mourned publicly by parents desperate to keep her from the Council. She was raised in hiding until she fled the relo-city for solitary freedom in the desert. Lena lives off the grid, selling her power on the black market.

Agent Alex Reyes was honed into a calculating weapon at the Ward School to do the Council’s dirty work. But Alex lives a double life. He’s leading the next generation of agents in a secret revolution to destroy those in power from within.

The life Lena built to escape her past ends the day Alex arrives looking for a renegade Spark.

I’m very excited to be included with 20 other USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Authors in the Secret Worlds Boxed Set. Many of you are probably already familiar with my included title, THE FOREVER GIRL, but for those who aren’t, here’s the full blurb.

Beautiful blonde with dandelions

The Forever Girl

At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.

Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she’d settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.

One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor’s hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him.
