  • Author: Joy Avery
  • Release Date: August 2, 2014
  • Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description:

After learning her boss has scheduled a mandatory team-building excursion, financial planner Nona Rogers panics. What does she know about camping? Nada. Zilch. Heck, she doesn’t even like picnics. And the thought of sleeping amid bugs and wild animals knots her stomach.
No way can she risk looking like an idiot in front of her colleagues. Taking proactive measures, she acquires the services of a guide to give her a crash-course in camping. Seven days living off the land. How hard could it be? Nona swallows those words when she meets the sexy titan tasked with leading her into the wild. Getting mauled by a bear quickly becomes the least of her worries.
Mason Tinsdale’s first love has always been oil rigging. But a horrible accident has him doubting the job—more importantly, himself. Seven days in the Indigo Falls wilderness is just what he needs to sort out his thoughts. Then he meets Nona Rogers. He’s convinced the gorgeous woman is going to be far more trouble than she’s worth. And he’s right. However, there’s something about the feisty vixen that makes her irresistible.
Two guarded hearts. Seven days alone. An attraction that can’t be denied.

Joy Avery is a North Carolina native with a passion for penning contemporary romances. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, cake decorating, pretending to expertly play the piano, driving her husband insane, and playing with her sixteen-pound peek-a-poo and hundred-pound Rottweiler.

There’s plenty of emotion in a Joy Avery romance. Sometimes there are obstacles and hurdles in love, and she enjoys showing this in her novels. Her stories guide readers along the rutted roads of love, delivering them to a gratifying happily ever after.

Romance is Joy’s genre of choice, because she enjoys the experience of characters overcoming the barriers that have held them back from finding true love. Plus, she loves happily ever afters.

HIS UNTIL SUNRISE is Joy’s second novel. Her first novel, SMOKE IN THE CITI, garnered attention for having well-developed and believable characters, as well as refreshing humor. She is currently working on Book 2 of her Indigo Falls series.

AdamAuthor Adam Glendon Sidwell:

In between books, Adam Glendon Sidwell uses the power of computers to make monsters, robots and zombies come to life for blockbuster movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Pacific Rim, Transformers and Tron. After spending countless hours in front of a keyboard meticulously adjusting tentacles, calibrating hydraulics, and brushing monkey fur, he is delighted at the prospect of modifying his creations with the flick of a few deftly placed adjectives. He really enjoyed writing 81,854 less words in his new picture book FETCH than he wrote in his first EVERTASTER novel, and hopes that you will like the ones he picked. Besides, FETCH has pictures.

Adam has also been rightfully accused of writing the upcoming novel CHUM.

Fetch is about a dog named Fetch that has the courage to leave what is "normal" and soar to great heights in an airplane and discover what lies in a distant world. I loved this book and I think young children will love it also. It teaches children about faithfulness, loyalty and undying love. The love between a child and his dog. The full-page illustrations are simply amazing and will draw any child's attention and keep them engaged in the story. It's a short story but beautifully done and small children will want to read it again and again. I recommend this book very highly to anyone with a small child!

My Rating:


Praise for the book:

“If you need & want a book for younger children that does not involve zombies, monsters, or overdone "superhero's", and just want a good old fashioned great story, perfect illustrations, and a captivating experience, then "Fetch" should be ordered quickly.” —Carol Anne Merrill Miller

“Simple, yet engaging, storyline appeals to readers of all ages and the illustrations glue your eyes to pages!” –Doodles

“The art work enchanted, enthralled, and grabbed me in ways paintings can and often do.” –Kindle Customer

Thirty-Two Going on Spinster by Becky Monson

Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new (SnifferWalkBooks) SnifferWalkBooks) ire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?

I was Blessed to receive an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the author. This is Nigeria Lockley's first novel and I think she is off to a great start as a writer. Her characters were believable and felt "real". They dealt with some real issues (domestic violence for one) that many readers can relate to in a very profound way and it will touch the hearts of many. The characters also remain true to their African American heritage with their dialect. The plot was solid and drew me in very quickly.
It was a compelling story and I kept reading to see what would happen next and I wasn't disappointed with the results. Christian fiction readers will love the religious angle of the story. However, for non-Christian readers it might be a bit strong on the religious influence but that's each reader's own personal preference. It is a great story by a new author that I feel should be on a reader's "to watch" list. I'm certainly waiting to see what she brings out next. If you're a fan of Urban fiction or women's fiction you'll love it and I certainly recommend it!

Author Nigeria Lockley
Nigeria Lockley possesses two Master's degrees, one in English Secondary Education, which she utilizes as an educator with the New York City Department of Education. Her second Master's degree is in Creative Writing. Born at Dawn is Nigeria’s first published novel. Nigeria serves as the Vice President of Bridges Family Services, a not-for-profit organization that assists student -parents interested in pursuing a degree in higher education. She is also the deaconess and clerk for her spiritual home King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Church of God. Nigeria is a New York native who resides in Harlem with her husband and two daughters.

Special Note from the Author

Born at Dawn is my very first novel. The inspiration for this novel can from very real events. Many women suffer in abusive relationships outside and inside the church and more and more women are just walking away from their families than ever before. When I began working towards the publication of this novel there were people who said this narrative has no place, but with women resorting to leaving their children in the subway station because they don’t believe their fit or the circumstances they had their children in are ideal for raising children I hope that with the publication of this novel we can begin to discuss the mental and spiritual well-being of mothers in the church and outside of the church. I also hope that people will know that above all else trust the vision that God has given you and commit to it. In spite of naysayers I did that and now I’m no longer an aspiring author, but an author.

Marvin Barclay flicked on the light switch in the foyer and tossed his keys on the table next to the door. He crept into the living room, reached over the arm of the sofa and planted a slippery wet kiss on his wife, Cynthia Barclay’s pouty lips. The smell of cigarettes and vodka leaped out of his pores.
Cynthia rose from the seat she’d occupied most of the night. “Where have you been, Marvin?” Cynthia inquired with her arms folded across her chest and the curve of her hip jutting out as far as it could.
            “Are you for real? I came home looking for some loving, and this is what I have to deal with,” he said, licking his lips and rubbing his work-worn hands along Cynthia’s sides.
            Cynthia contorted to get out of her husband’s tight grip, backed up a few steps, and peered into Marvin’s bloodshot, hollow brown eyes. “Where have you been?” she asked again.
            “Don’t start with me tonight,” Marvin said, tossing his jacket onto the couch.
            “Marvin, I’m not trying to start anything with you. I’d just like to know where you’ve been,” Cynthia responded emphatically.
            Marvin turned his back on Cynthia and walked up the hallway toward the bedroom.
            “Marvin,” Cynthia called to him marching behind him, “don’t you dare walk away from me or-”
            “Or else what?” he asked, stopping mid-stride, casting a side-eye stare full of malice in Cynthia’s direction.
            “Answer me. Where have you been?” Cynthia cried as Marvin turned the knob on the bedroom door.
            In one quick step, Marvin was standing over Cynthia in the middle of the hallway. His warm breath scratched against her skin. “You don’t want to know where I’ve been.” His voice cracked. “Don’t start this nonsense tonight. Where my boys at?” He asked calling out his son’s names. “Keith! James!”
            “They’re not here.”
            “Where are they, Cynthia?” He asked. His voice was marked with a slight hint of distress and his bulging eyes revealed his concern.
            “They’re at Sean’s house waiting for you to pick them up.” The kids often had play dates at their friend Sean Dillinger’s house after their karate class on Saturdays. “Sean’s mother called me more than two hours ago.” She jumped back to the subject matter at hand. “Where have you been, Marvin?”
            Marvin wrapped his thick, hard-knuckled hands around Cynthia’s neck in response to her question. “Woman, you’ve been sitting here waiting to fight with me instead of picking up my sons?”
            Marvin’s grip tightened around Cynthia’s neck. She clawed at his hand with her delicate fingers, trying to pry them from her neck as he lifted her from the ground. She flailed her legs in the air, sending one lancing kick to his kneecap. The kick pulled Marvin out of his blind rage. He looked at Cynthia dangling from the palm of his hand and released her. She hit the floor with a thud and shrank against the wall in the hallway lined with family photos that portrayed them the way she wished they were: happy, united, and at peace.
