Praise for TMI Mom: Getting Lucky:

markserpentcover_border2. Cara Brookin’s MARK OF THE SERPENT Journey 2 in her time travel, action-adventure series for boys, Timeshifters available in trade paperback and Kindle ebook here and nook here.

Time is running out. Teen Jordan Booker makes another journey to a past so ancient it predates our fossil record. Only this time, he accidentally brings a stranger along for the ride. Not only does he have to collect artifacts to save the future Earth and avoid the Time Ranger who wants him dead, he must also watch over the clumsy tag-along who may be an enemy in disguise. Jordan befriends an elf-like family, a tribe of miniature furry humans, and is held captive in a steampunk city while trying to return to his little sister. If he doesn’t make it back to the time capsule, humans will be the next extinct species. More fast-paced, creative sci-fi action from an author who knows how to give readers a thrill ride to the ancient past. This second Timeshifters novel is sure to please sci-fi fantasy readers of all ages.

PLUS: MARK OF THE CENTIPEDE, JOURNEY 1 is just .99 for Kindle and nook. If you’re getting your child an ereader for Christmas, you can pre-load the books on there.

mirrormirrorcover3. Diana Rodriguez Wallach’s MIRROR, MIRROR Trilogy: Reflecting Emmy, Nara Gazing, Shattering GiGi PLUS the bonus prequel, Emmy’s First Glimpse and an author Q&A is the perfect gift for teen girls or anyone who enjoys mythology. The Mirror, Mirror trilogy is the third set of short stories in our Mythology High series which modernizes classic myths with teen heroines. Ebook available for Kindle and nook. 

The short stories were previously released as .99 shorts and this collection brings them all together plus this prequel:

EMMY’S FIRST GLIMPSE

It all started with a party.

Before she became a Revenge Expert, before she started sucking narcissistic teens from the planet, Emmy had to receive her mystical mirror. And with that came a wild bash full of lions, Greek Gods, and a very awkward ceremony.

The next morning Emmy awakes to her first assignment. Only after growing up isolated on a Greek Island schooled only in the legends of Hera and Zeus, Emmy has no idea what to expect when she’s plopped into a posh high school outside of New Orleans. Her great grandmother may have sent her to judge her target’s reflection, but Emmy will soon learn that her fellow classmates also will be judging her.

BONUS: interviews with author Diana Rodriguez Wallach by two award-winning YA authors, Melissa Walker and Stephanie Kuehnert. Learn what inspired the covers in the Mirror, Mirror collection as well as the inspiration behind the stories themselves. Plus a recommended soundtrack to accompany the stories.

WE’RE NOT DONE! Each week we’ll be announcing new .99 specials on our ebooks! 

Fixer Upper by Malena Lott

Fixer Upper by Malena Lott

Today and tomorrow (Dec. 3 and 4), our feature is Fixer Upper, Malena Lott’s top selling ebook about a mom who leaves the posh life for the pastures. .99 on Amazon only. Thanks to E Reader News Today for the feature.

“When a power-hungry politician’s wife leaves her glamorous but shallow marriage, hightails it for her childhood home and trades in her perfectly tailored suits for zebra-print cowboy boots and a pink tool belt, you can bet things get dusty, and dicey. Fixer Upper is a sassy, fun read that proves going home can sometimes be the smartest thing a broken-hearted woman can do.”
-Beth Hoffman, New York Times’ bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Shattering GiGi Pub Day + Bridesmaids Hop

5 Nov

mythshatteringHappy Pub Day to Diana Rodriguez Wallach for SHATTERING GIGI.

For Emmy, the one thing scarier than accidentally sucking the only crush she’s ever had off the planet is facing her great grandmother. Especially since her great grandmother, GiGi, has been around since the dawn of time.

But how else is Emmy going to correct the biggest mistake in the history of her family business? Her magical mirror must be broken—it’s the only way to explain why an innocent person would be wiped off the planet while, Nara, the narcissistic target she was sent to destroy is walking around free. But she’ll need GiGi’s help if she’s going to fix her mirror, and that will require both Emmy and Nara to do things they never thought capable.

Shattering GiGi ties together the myths of Narcissus, Nemesis, Echo, and Nyx—the shadowy Goddess at the start of creation who gave birth to Nemesis and many others. It’s a love-hate quadrangle with life and death stakes, updated in a modern high school setting. It is the third installment of the Mirror, Mirror trilogy that includes, Reflecting Emmy, Nara Gazing, Shattering GiGi and a new prequel story to be released in December 2013.

Get it for just .99 on Kindle and B&N.

The closer they get to the truth, the more they realize there’s something hiding in the Georgia mountains that is much older and deadlier than your everyday demon. Forget studying for finals, these three will need to fight just to survive.***CREATURE DISCOMFORTS is the first in the digital novella Descendants trilogy following Rachel and Kendra’s adventures in college, romance, and kicking monster butt.

A WHOLE NEW WORLD

by Jenny Peterson

There’s a whole world out there, big and chaotic and sometimes confusing. I’m not talking the world in general—you know, continents and countries and all that—but the “world” immediately around you. Wherever you’re sitting right now, there’s more than just the screen in front of you. There are smells and sounds and maybe the feel of a hard chair under your butt.

For example, I’m typing away at…
