We are really happy to have debut author Lauren Hammond here today. Her first novel Love Sucks was released on August 3rd and she is here today to talk about choices and opportunities. Please give her a warm welcome.
We are constantly offered so many choices in our everyday lives. We have opportunities to decide what we want out of life. But what if you weren’t given a choice? What if the life you are leading was chosen for you?
That’s what happened to Cara Jones in Love Sucks. Cara never chose to be a vampire. That life was chosen for her.
When I began writing this novel, the first mental image I ever got of Cara Jones was her punching her fist through the lid of her coffin and the rest is history. I tried to put myself in …
During a brief trip to Vegas, Charlie Howard – mystery writer and professional thief – is nonplussed to find his agent, Victoria, being charmed by a stage illusionist at a high stakes roulette table. It doesn’t help that the illusionist, Josh Masters, has invited Victoria to his sell-out show, nor that he seems to be doing very well at roulette.

We had to shorten it to make it fit, sorry about that
What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Hidden in the dark heart of Victorian London, the Romanesque school was dreadfully imposing, a veritable fortress, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met its powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadows, of the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She saw simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gift. This …
This week we decided to start something new in this post series. We will now each week choose our favorite covers in a genre and tell you why we chose them.

Summary: One happily-ever-after rocking chair…
And no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol’ Georgebury, Vermont.

If that isn’t bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a 3-0 birthday bash in the family funeral home.
