About book:

After her parents’ divorce, Jessica, age eleven, is responsible for overseeing the household and watching her younger siblings while her ever-absent mother manages her three businesses.

At sixteen, she is introduced to Jim, nearly a decade older than she. Their friendship blossoms into a summer romance, which results in her pregnancy. Confident she can raise the baby with Jim’s support, she sets a goal to graduate from high school at age seventeen before the baby’s birth. Now a new mother, she works two jobs and attends community college for a semester before facing the reality her relationship with Jim is intolerable.

Once obtaining an apartment of her own, Jessica works three jobs, yet she struggles to provide for herself and her daughter. Desperate and determined to succeed as a single mother, she answers an ad in the newspaper for a job that is too good to be true and is hired. Unable to meet the job’s daily sales quota, her boss insists additional training is needed. Reluctantly, Jessica concedes. She is driven far from home to an unknown location in Tennessee and forced to live in abhorrent conditions. Discovering she is trapped in a labor trafficking scheme, will she ever return home and see her sixteen-month-old daughter again?

You’ll Never Think of A Werewolf in the Same Way Again… Get your copy early of The Hobgoblin of Little Minds by @Mark_Matthews #3dChicks #horror #suspense

In the underground tunnels below Northville Psychiatric Hospital, the mood swings of the mentally ill are manipulated, transforming them into manic, savage beasts who seek justice by the light of the full moon.

Kori Persephone Driscoe suffered through her dad’s mental illness. All she wanted was for him to get better, but instead he disappeared. Kori trespasses into the abandoned Northville Psychiatric Hospital, the last place her dad was treated, seeking solace and traces of his memory. What she finds instead is something no longer human living deep in the underground tunnels.

During the last days of the hospital, a roque psychiatrist had been manipulating the mood swings of the mentally ill, transforming patients into savage, manic creatures who seek justice by the light of the full moon. When the creatures hunt for prey, only an escaped patient and her beloved child can help Kori survive–but they better act fast, because the creatures want blood, Kori wants to save her dad, and the whole hospital is about to be blown to pieces and bury Kori alive.

NOTE TO READER: Kindle version includes the bonus novella, LIZARD, from Lullabies for Suffering

ABOUT BOOK | AUTHOR PAGE

By all accounts, Chicago Police dispatcher, Enola Roux’s life would
have been considered completely normal; and that was fine with her.
But when Enola has to return to her native Louisiana, she learns that
her life is anything but ordinary. Enola is suddenly inducted into a
world of spells, curses, ancient grudges, and…
Gideon.

Louisiana Pack Alpha, Gideon Toussaint, has walked the earth for more
than a hundred years. He was sure that he had seen and done it all.
But when Gideon is nearly knocked off of his feet at the sight of the
Roux woman, he felt a longing that he hadn’t experience in his entire
existence. Unfortunately for Gideon, mating with the Roux women was
forbidden. However, rules, even his own, would be broken.

Forbidden or not, Gideon would have Enola Roux.

2020 Must-Have Reader Spreadsheet Template via @shutupshealea #3dChicks

via Shutup Sheila

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a reader in possession of a seemingly endless to-be-read pile, must be in want of a simple, color-coded spreadsheet. But really, all poorly made references to Jane Austen aside, keeping track of your reading can feel like an unnecessary chore. Especially when there are sites like Goodreads that can organize your books into custom shelves.

As a reader, book reviewer, and creator of bookish content, having a more sophisticated system for tracking and organizing my books is a must. For example, I need to separate my unread ARCs from the unread books on my shelf. I also need to ensure that I don’t over-request upcoming titles or miss any review deadlines. Thus, a comprehensive spreadsheet is an invaluable asset for me.
