About the Author

Oh jeez…do you know how many people I told I didn’t want to write this? So here is the one my friend made me:

Becca Vincenza lives in wonderful Michigan. She has a love for Skittles, rainbows, Star Wars, *giggles* and Hot Men. She spends time in her basement with Airicka… Apparently that’s where the best ideas come from.

Any who….she loves meeting new people, so feel free to message her on Facebook and friend her on Goodreads!

So a sort of serious one: For real, I am a geek. I grew up watching Star Wars, and my father read Lord of the Rings to us, along with the C. S. Lewis series. I love to write. In all honesty, it took me a lot of work to get where I am today and I don’t regret a moment of it. Reading and writing are honestly the best things ever. I couldn’t be happier that my parents put me through so much extra help. Anyways! Me, me, me…. Huh…I love paranormal stuff…Love it.

I want more! I NEED MORE! Like now! Amber's story drew me in, had me flipping the pages and anticipating the answers to come. I couldn't get enough fast enough! I feel neglected... I wanted so much more by the time I got to the end. It's been a long time since I felt I had to have the next book in my hands as I finished the last sentence.

Amber's journey is hard when all her life she's been on the run. Her mother taken from her, others of her kind bullying her, and then there's Blake. He's her rock, her shoulder to cry on and when everything gets out of hand he's there to help her escape.

Darius wants to help Amber although she does not accept willingly, not without a fight. It takes Amber a long time to see the hand that helps her should be the hand she puts her trust into. If it was not for her father's betrayal...

Book Blitz / Buda's Book Celebration by Raebeth McGee-Buda

Wow, what a year it has been for this amazing author. Let me introduce RaeBeth McGee-Buda. She is joining us today as she celebrates her one-year mark as a self-published author. Let us learn a little more about her.

Guest Post 

What It’s Really Like Being an Author Starting Out – at least for this one....

- By RaeBeth McGee-Buda

Everyone has dreams as their growing up. I know I did but being an author never crossed my mind. Once I realized I loved to write and wanted to focus part of my life on it, I realized my dreams changed. I want to be a successful author. By this, I’m not meaning money wise. I want to be successful by always striving to get better and push myself to never stop learning. I can’t say how much I’ve learned with just writing my first book and having it published.

At first, I did not think the word published would ever come out of my mouth. When I got to the point where I needed to begin thinking of it, I thought only the lucky authors got their books out there. That is until I was introduced into the self-publishing world. (This was also when it became the “thing” to do.) I did not hesitate to begin formatting my book and send it off to

At this time, I didn’t realize that it needed an editor. My mind focused on one thing. When a reader (also an author) privately messaged me, they explained that my book could be a lot better if I pulled it and had it go through the editing stage. They felt my book could really make a stand out there if it had a good edit. Therefore, it was pulled.

I put Silenced through the ringer (beta readers and an editor) then began my hunt again for a publisher. I was mixed up with the wrong publishers who presented themselves as a “great -don’t want to miss this opportunity-we’ll get your work out there to the big people” and they ended up being not so great. They destroyed my book and gave me a bunch of false hope. I eventually found out they are considered a “spam” publisher and begin fighting my way out of the contract. I found they were in breach and got the rights back to my book. 

After the few months of battle, I had to put Silenced through formatting and editing again. This time I was careful. I did more research. I found an editor and sent off Silenced again. This time I felt sure it was going to be ready for the world. After several weeks of changes and emails with the editor, we felt Silenced was ready. 

I went to Amazon and published it. I’m still finding out there are mistakes within the book and I plan on fixing those in the future. However, for now I am working on another series, which I think readers will really enjoy. 

Author Bio 

Best Selling Author, RaeBeth McGee-Buda is resides in a tiny valley at the ridges of the Application Mountains in Fairchance, Pennsylvania, with her husband and daughter, her dog, Cody, and her newest family addition, Romeow her pure white cat.

She has been writing in some form her entire life, but loving young sister, Audra McGee noticed her talent, and gave her the reassurance she needed to start her writing career. After many months of deliberation, RaeBeth decided to trust her sister’s word and expand her short story into what we all know and love as The Silenced Series.

RaeBeth is a mother to an angel in Heaven...Miss Dakota, whom she honored in Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello. Her goals for her books are to inspire and give hope. She is a Christian author, who firmly believes in God and incorporates her faith into some of her work. 

Here is more on her three published works! 

What are others saying about Silenced

"There are too few books out there about this subject matter. This book makes it easy for the young teenager to read that they are not alone. They are not the only ones out there fighting this affliction. Highly recommended." 

“I have never had a book draw me in and fill me with that connection.” 

“I applaud the author's bravery in bringing to light a few things that are so easily swept under the rug. Depression and cutting. There really is not enough information out there and more teens and young adults have these issues than most people know. I hope that this series will help someone having these issues and show them that they can seek help.”

What are others saying about Silenced 2: The Overtaking? 

“I recommend this to anyone reader who loves Christian suspicion or just wants to read for fun.” 

“This is an amazing story that hooks you in from the beginning and sends you on an emotional roller coaster. You can relate to these characters on a personal level, which to me makes the book a masterpiece.” 

SILENCED 2: The Overtaking is a story of healing, forgiveness, and overcoming those things that seek to pull us down, and most of all it is story of HOPE!”

What are others saying about Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello? 

"Saying Goodbye Without Saying Hello is a poignant read that shares the journey of the author her experience of a wonderful pregnancy ending abruptly with an unexpected turn; how her baby becomes an angel. This page-turning true story touched my heart as I learned how Mrs. Buda shares just how fragile life is.” 

“Rae Beth’s story is heart wrenching and the fact that she shares it with us shows the strength and determination this woman has.” 

“I loved this book! She was so detailed in the raw emotions she felt in going through this very tragic event. I would recommend this book be given to parents who are going through losing their baby in this way. She is very detailed with her thoughts and emotions, I think anyone experiencing something like this, or knowing someone who is would benefit from reading this book.”

Cover Reveal / Truth or Dare by AJ Bennett


Luna Alexander has always been a 'free spirit' and lived by her own rules, consequences be damned. With the approach of an anniversary she'd rather forget, Luna starts to wonder if there's more to life than partying and hooking up with hot guys. 

A chance meeting with a dark knight knocks her off kilter and has her emotions spinning out of control. 

Will she finally overcome her past for a chance at happiness, or will she hide behind the walls she's built around her? 


Her body ached with an irrational need to have him close to her. She noticed several faint silver scars across his back. How had he gotten those?

The memory of his reaction to the scar on his stomach stopped her from asking.

Hunter wasn’t prepared to share anything with her other than his body. Understandable, she wasn’t exactly the type to bare her soul either.

She was startled by the realization that she would like to know what secrets he kept hidden underneath his hard exterior. Usually, she could care less about the men she got involved with. But she was intrigued to know what made him tick. What experiences in his past made him who he was today?

On that note, Luna kicked the sheets off her and swung her feet over the bed. “I guess it’s time for me to get home.”

“Stay the night with me,” he said gruffly without turning.

Thankfully she still had a sane corner in her mind. She shook her head. “I can’t. I have to work in the morning.”

“Call in sick.”

Luna laughed. Why did he have to be so freakin’ gorgeous. It was hard to say no, but she had to remain strong. “I don’t have that luxury.”

He nodded and moved towards her. Reaching down he drew her up, towering over her. “Alright, but I want to see you tomorrow.”

They stared at each other for so long she was beginning to feel uncomfortable. The air between them seemed to thicken making it hard to breath. She knew things were moving too fast, but couldn’t seem to find the words to protest.

His fingers closed around the back of her neck and his thumb stroked her collar bone. The tips of her naked breast grazed his firm chest.

“You’re making it hard to leave.”

“Tell me you’ll see me tomorrow.” He cupped her face and gave her a brief, but thorough kiss.

She swallowed visibly and nodded, dropping her head onto his chest moving into the embrace. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Maybe she was reading too much into it. Imagining, he sounded almost desperate to see her again.

Why couldn’t she shut off that cynical voice in her head and just enjoy the moment?

About the Author

A.J. Bennett lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and bulldog. She's addicted to coffee, popcorn and books. Becoming an author has been a lifelong dream, and she's extremely excited about her debut novel Now or Never.

Tour Stop | The Souls of Rain by Diana Nixon @DianaNixon9

Title:  The Souls of Rain
Author:  Diana Nixon
Length:  242 Pages
Available: Amazon Kindle / Amazon Paperback


The secrets of the heavens had always been carefully guarded. Until one day when the angels realized that what they used to believe in was nothing but a cruel game between heaven and hell.

And Claire’s life is a part of that game too. She is a guardian angel.

She always thought that her existence was perfect. But perfection is a very relative term, and no one is protected from making mistakes.

Everything changes the moment Claire gets a new assignment. Guarding humans has never been easy, and this time won’t be an exception.

Alan Rosenford is a spoilt party-boy, whose life is a hurricane of risk and adrenaline rush. His soul is damaged, his heart is bleeding, and there are so many things he prefers to keep private….

The words they have never said before …

The sins they have never committed….

How much does forgiveness of the heavens cost?

Or maybe even the heavens make mistakes?....


Oh my wow, I absolutely loved this book!  The characters were strong, the story line was amazing and the action was incredible.  Diana Nixon drew me into her world, with twists and turns and while the mystery of the characters connection kept me turning the pages the ending totally blew me away!

Claire is none other than a Guardian Angel.  Her new assignment, to protect Alan, will stretch her to the limits, proving to be more than she can handle alone.  Guarding humans always has it's risks because demons will find a way to corrupt the humans she's assigned to protect.

Alan Rosenford is a handsome man with a dark past and the pain he carries is consuming.  When Claire finds out he's in the hospital she wastes no time to reach him before any demons can take advantage of his vulnerable state.  Never before has a human been able to see her but Alan does and Claire has to come up with a cover story fast.  The connection is a mystery, one only the Heaven's know.

When the twists and turns of this amazing book keep you guessing, remember the beginning and know that you will get the answers along with Claire and Alan with each turn of the page. Claire is one of the best Guardian Angels in her field but will her new assignment prove to be too much?

Review | Skinless: A Novel in III Parts (Part I) by L. M. Davis @LMDavisWrites

Title: Skinless: A Novel in III Parts (Part I)
Author: L.M. Davis
Series: Skinless
Genre: Sci-Fi Fantasy
Length: 74 Pages


Looking at Luca, who’s just saved my life, I can’t respond. No explanation I might offer will satisfy after all of the extraordinary things he’s just witnessed. —Ankh

AnCaela Murphy's body is a ticking bomb that only her mom can defuse. The problem: her mother is missing and presumed taken by the Skinless, bogeymen from Ankh’s home world who have been hunting her and her mother for two years--ever since they fled that world and certain death.

With help from Luca, a boy whose touch confuses and who refuses to back down, Ankh races against time to find her mother before the bomb inside of her detonates, taking her life. Tracking the Skinless across the country, the pair search for her mother and uncover the horrifying truth behind the generation's old war.


“Who are they, Ankh? Who are these guys that leave trails of dead animals behind them? Why are they after you?”

I don’t know what kind of answer I expect. Hell, at this point she could tell me that she’s some kind escapee from a secret lab where they experimented with her DNA and I would completely buy it. Every rational explanation I can think of no longer applies.

Ankh’s eyes get wider with every question until they’re as big as saucers. At the same time, there’s this look on her face like she’s at war with herself. Like half of her wants to spill and the other half is holding her back. So what comes next isn’t really a shocker.

“I can’t.” Even saying the words she looks so supremely unhappy, I almost cave until I remember I only ask because I’m in way over my head and somehow still being treated like I’m on a need-to-know basis and my security clearance is a negative ten. I swallow my frustration and it’s acid, making my stomach churn.

“Well then, what can you tell me?” I barely recognize my own voice. It’s scratchy, hoarse, and pleading. I need something—anything—to keep going and not think that I’m crazy for it. I’m in this. Facing the girl I fell so hard for my ears are still ringing, who looks like she might bolt at any sudden movement, I can’t not be. But I need her to toss me a bone.

She’s looking back at me, but it’s more like she’s just looking in my direction. She doesn’t see me at all, while I can almost hear her mind clicking because she wants to tell me too, but she doesn‘t know how.

I take a step toward her and I’m not sure what my face looks like because she immediately takes two steps back so that she’s pressed against the door, which means I freeze. Another step and she’s likely to disappear out that door and I’m not up for another midnight marathon. We stand--it must be for hours--like that trapped in a stare down.

“It’s not poison,” she says, when she finally speaks. Maybe I shouldn’t be, since I’m the one who tossed the door wide open, but I’m totally lost, which is written all over my face, I guess, because she explains.

“Whatever’s killing the fish and the birds. It’s not poison. You’re safe.” She says it so firmly I want to believe her, despite this annoying sliver of doubt that probably won't disappear until she tells me everything she knows, which might mean never.

I don’t know what to say to that. I guess it’s good to know that I’m not, say, going to die of cancer next year because of this little cross-country jaunt, but in the whole grand scheme of things she might actually tell me, the revelation is not exactly what I was looking for.

This long, awkward silence draws out between us and I finally notice the way she’s holding her arm. It’s not so much how she holds it, but it’s more that she’s not moving it at all. It rests motionless against her side, and now I see how hard she’s trying not to move it.

“How long has it been bothering you?” She looks confused, so I point at her arm. She gives a one-shouldered shrug.

“It never really stops. “ Her voice is barely above a whisper, and it hits me that how ever tired I am, how ever confused I am, how ever frustrated I am, I’ve got nothing on her. Besides the apparently constant pain, it’s her mom who’s missing, her who the hunchback psychopaths are after. Somehow, even with all of that, she’s holding it together and she never complains. It’s something like amazing and I’m suddenly in awe.

I walk to her. I couldn’t stop if I tried; I’m compelled. My hands are in front of me the way that you approach a spooked cat, and this time she stands still and lets me reach her.

Her back presses against the door, so I take her by her shoulders, gently, and turn her back to me. And she lets me.

She lets me take her jacket, which I handle like tissue paper, and she let’s me raise her shirt to examine the wound. Even in the shadows, the point where her skin is abruptly several shades dark is clear. I can’t tell if it’s gotten any better since the last time I saw it when we were diving into the river, but to my relief it doesn’t look like it’s gotten any worse. I swear I try to stop myself when my hand rises to touch her, but I fail utterly, completely, entirely, and my finger is tracing this wound on this back that mesmerizes me. It’s not a good thing that she shivers as my finger grazes the place where copper colored perfection meets bruise. It’s definitely not a good thing that she lets out this little gasp. It’s not on purpose, I know, but that doesn’t stop me from reacting.


Incapable of putting the book down, I must know what is to come of Ankh and Luca.  The story is full of action and a building romance.  There are questions and yet I don't have the answers yet.  Yet being the key word, I cannot wait to pick up the next part in this amazing Novel in III Parts.  Skinless will leave you wanting more and determined to pick up the next book as you reach the end of Part I.  The suspense is killing me!

About the Author
L. M. Davis loves great storytelling. She needs nothing more than a good book and a comfy chair to be happy. She was born in the south, raised in the north, and has a few degrees under her belt. She still hasn't gotten her black cat, but she thinks about it everyday. Her thoughts go something like this: "I really should get a cat." For now, she contents herself with spoiling the pets of her friends and family.

Tour Stop | Grimnirs by Ednah Walters @EdnahWalters @AsYouWishTours

Book Title: Grimnirs
Series: A Runes Novel #2.5
Author: Ednah Walters
Release Date: December 2nd 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Firetrail Publishing
Presented by: As You Wish Tours
Banner Made by: Jamie Turner-Norton


One lost love.
One lost best friend.
One hot soul reaper.

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.

Talking to him was useless. I turned to see Dad coming toward me. Mom was locking the door. When I glanced back at Echo, he was gone.

“Your mother is coming, too,” Dad said, stating the obvious.

I wasn’t surprised. My parents didn’t socialize often with Raine’s parents, but they were friends. We had potluck a few times a year, and Raine’s dad often came to the farm to buy fresh fruit and vegetables and visit with Dad. I slid in the back seat and checked my cell phone. There was still no text from Raine.

“How did you find out about Tristan?” Mom asked as we left the farm.

“A friend texted me,” I fibbed. “Mom, did you guys see Raine’s family while I was away?”

“Not really. We were so busy, and with Raine not coming to visit you, I thought it was best we keep our distance. I had no idea they were going through so much.” Mom sounded calm, but I knew she felt guilty. Dad took her hand and squeezed it.

“I’m sure Raine’s mother will appreciate seeing you at the hospital,” I said.

The drive to the hospital reminded me of our mad dash after Raine had injured herself. Eirik had driven like a maniac, hardly stopping at stop signs. Eirik. Funny I hadn’t thought about him in the last few hours. When did his family move away? I was hoping Raine would tell me.

Kayville might be a small town in wine country Oregon, but we had an amazing hospital with great staff. We didn’t airlift patients to bigger hospitals in Portland or Salem. After the lightning accident, Kayville Medical Center had taken care of all the students. Even Raine had been treated here after she received a head injury.

We entered through the ER and headed upstairs to the ICU. Torin and a blond couple stood somewhere ahead. The same couple had come with Raine to my home after I came back from the hospital. Runes covered their faces and arms.


Did Raine know about them?


Look out Torin St. James! Echo has stolen my heart with his cocky mouth and sexy swagger in this Runes series installment. There I was meeting him for the first time and I could not get enough of him and still want more! Cora was great in this book, she caught on to things pretty quickly and made an awesome heroine. Unraveling the truth one puzzle piece at a time.

Cora is desperately trying to figure out how she can be in two places at once, wondering whether or not the Norns took her memories away and what the heck Echo wants from her. All the while Echo is right up her in her personal space, running his cocky mouth and doing his best to resist the pull she has on him now. When the week before her return from PSI, it was all fun and games.

As reader and fan of hers for the past three years her writing leaves me wanting more with every book she publishes. Ednah Walters knows how to keep her readers sitting on the edge of their seats. I always want to know but never expect what's to come next and she never fails to impress me. She knows how to grab your attention from the beginning and keeps you turning the pages to the very end. I Echo!

For Kaitlin Claremont this is a very tall order. What wouldn’t an orphan girl living over of her aunt’s shop wish for? But when her one night of magic and passion in the arms of a man that is as out of her reach as he is gorgeous turns into curdling screams and dead bodies, Katie quickly realizes that her wish came with strings, a debt she must repay or die. But can she take a life to save her own or can she find those responsible and stop them before it’s too late?

Kaleb O’Reilly has one goal, finish his internship, get his credits and graduate. His freedom can’t start until he does. But nothing prepares him for the brown-eyed beauty he just can’t seem to get out of his head no matter how many times he tells himself she’s off-limits. Kaleb can’t deny he wants her in a way that very much complicates everything. But what happens when the hunger wins and everyone he loves becomes a pawn to a deadly game? Can he turn his back on Katie to save his family or will he fight to save the girl?

Time is running out. Will they kill or be killed?
