New Release and Giveaways - Chasing Shadows

Hello, everyone; and happy Hump-Day! Jo here. I'm super excited to share a new release with you all and give you yet another chance to snag a wonderful book worked on by IBGW. I did the edit and the print formatting for this book, and author Tia Silverthorne Bach (another of the EICs here) wrote it. Before we get to the giveaways (IBGW's and the author's rafflecopter AND Goodreads), I'm gonna tell you a little about the book, where you can grab a copy, and show you some of the goodies you won't find anywhere else. Ready? Let's get going!

It’s here! And it’s only 99 cents through Sunday, 5/11/14.

About Chasing Shadows (Tala Prophecy, Book 2)

Reagan thought one night changed her life forever, but her fate was written long ago.

Merging creature and white blood,
One of flame, one of night,
At eighteen years it will commence,
Spiritual warrior and power,
Will bring an end to the lawless ones.

A war looms: One that pits brother against brother for werewolf supremacy. Angels and demons will each have a say before a victor is chosen.

With her eighteenth birthday only six months away, time is running out. Reagan must find a way to harness the two powerful, ancient bloodlines coursing through her: Werewolf and Wiccan. Then, she has to figure out her role in the century-old prophecy foretold by her great-grandmother.

However, if Reagan can’t save her family from her most vicious rival, Rafe, the forces of Hell will be unleashed and the war will be over before it starts.

And don’t forget Chasing Memories (Tala Prophecy, Book 1)
Until Sunday, 5/11/14, it’s FREE!


There isn’t another way; not now. The others are coming. I can’t let them have you…

Seventeen-year-old Reagan has a problem: She can’t remember what happened the night her brother was taken. Now, the dreams haunting her from the incident are becoming more intense by the day. All the while, the lines between what’s real and what’s a product of her paranormal-obsessed mind are becoming blurred.

Is she losing her mind or has she just stepped into a world she thought only existed in books?

Caught in a web of worried parents, competing boys, Wiccan relatives, protective amulets, and psychiatrist babble, Reagan must determine the truth before it’s too late.

“Okay, teens, let’s go speak some TBINKERKNESE.”

E.L. Thomas Sr. has created the Tbinkerknese language specifically to break down communication barriers with teens. Quips, like the one above, in this inspiring book of poetry will keep you engaged throughout. Inside, there are 101 tidbits of useful, practical advice for teens, parents, and teachers, all communicated in a fun way while retaining a note of seriousness.

If you’re the parent of a teen, or a young person yourself, you’ll love getting lost in the pages of this book. Hopefully, it’ll open up lines of communication thought to be lost and get you thinking about life. With lines to record your thoughts as you read each poem, it beckons to be used as more than just a casual reading device.

Sounds good, eh? It is. Some of them are funny, some make you stop and think, and others leave you shaking your head at the truths Earl dared to put on the page. There are lines after each poem inside for the teens to record their reactions in the printed versions, and note spots on the digital versions. We made it as interactive as we could in order to get young people to engage with the words and really think about them while reading.

You can check out this post for an example of the interior and a bit about the author.

Now, connect with E. L. Thomas Sr. while earning an entry into the Rafflecopter giveaway. Good luck, everyone!
