Over at Love Bytes chatting about Beating the Burnout.

lovebytesbanner400

Hello all! Today's my monthly column over at Love Bytes and I'm chatting a little about burnout and how important it is to step away from the computer and do something different, something to soothe the heart, mind, and soul. Authors aren't the only ones in danger of burnout. So what do you do to get away from it all? Drop by and share.

My 40th Birthday Celebration Party

Hello all! Nicole Dennis is celebrating a milestone birthday this month, and she's asked friends and fellow authors to join in the fun! At the mention of birthday stories, a certain cheesy doodle crunching agent jumped at the chance to share his own milestone birthday story. Join Dex over at the blog as he tells us all about his thirtieth birthday, and pre-birthday-party party. So grab yourself a delicious cup of coffee, tasty tea, and maybe a few snacks and brace yourself. It's undoubtedly going to be a bumpy ride.

SYNOPSIS

Enthusiastic, play-it-safe Kelly Sutton is an American intern at the Photonic Royal Society in New London. He’s been working on Project Mars for over a year, a mission kept so secret by the Society even Kelly doesn’t know exactly what it is. What Kelly does know is his contribution to the task will benefit mankind, and that’s enough for him.

Kelly’s world turns upside down when concerns over his mentor’s behavior lead Kelly to investigate and stumble upon a wicked truth. What is supposed to be a project to advance human life turns out to be an endeavor capable of mass destruction. The terrifying reality forces Kelly to choose between looking the other way to keep his job, as he’s always done, or risking his career and even his life to do the right thing by saving the man who’s captured his heart.

Recent Reads - How to Wish Upon a Star by Eli Easton

RecentReads

Hello all! I was lucky enough to have received an ARC of How to Wish Upon a Star, the third How at the Moon book, and I think this might be my favorite so far, and that's saying something because I love Tim and Lance, and Matt and Roman, but OMG, Milo!! I just need to squee a little here because Milo is just the sweetest, most adorable guy who ever walked on four paws. He can break your heart with one look or a few words. Eli Easton was breaking my heart by the second chapter. I knew I was in for some major feels here.

Milo is a hospice comfort dog who's bonded with many patients, all of whom he's lost. Milo is very much an innocent. He's a newly turned quickened who's just learning to communicate and live as a man. Yet despite his confusion to many things, when it comes to seeing inside people, their sadness and pain, he's more intuitive than most, especially Dr. Jason Kunik, a quickened who's been researching the quickened and trying to figure out how the transformation or the "spark" happens. Jason isn't the most personable guy. In fact, during his research in Mad Creek, his interviews send several quickened off in tears. Jason is oblivious. Emotions and connections are not his thing. He's all logic and getting the work done. At least until he meets Milo.

When we get into Milo's POV, that about did me in. Hearing his thoughts on how desperately he wanted to show Jason he was worthy of being loved by him, ugh, bring out the tissues. Milo wants to be loved. He wants a forever home. Jason just wants to be left alone to do his research. There were several moments that made me laugh out loud. Milo is just too cute for words and watching Jason handling Milo was priceless. It's no secret I love this series. It's also no surprise that each book gets even better than the last. It is Eli Easton after all. If you enjoy sweet, heart-string-tugging reads, and shifters, I highly recommend the Howl at the Moon series, and most certainly How to Wish Upon a Star.

2016Divider

29827476Dr. Jason Kunik is working on the most earth-shattering genetics project ever, DNA mapping of a new species, the quickened—dogs who can shift into human form. The problem is, no one knows the quickened exist and Jason can’t betray them by publishing his studies. When he moves to Mad Creek to continue his research in a town full of quickened, all he wants is peace, quiet, and to be allowed to bury himself in his work. Perhaps if he figures how out the mutation is activated, he can silence his own inner dog forever.

Milo is a hospice comfort dog who has bonded with, and lost, many beloved patients in his life. He intuitively understands sickness and pain on a spiritual level most can’t see. When he gains the ability to become a man, he thinks he finally has everything he ever wanted. But being a man isn’t the same thing as being loved, and taking shelter in Mad Creek isn’t the same thing as finding a home.

When a mysterious illness hits Mad Creek and threatens all the quickened in town, it’s up to the scientist and the comfort dog to figure out what it is and how to stop it. Along the way they might discover that true love is possible—if you wish upon a star.
