2nd and 3rd place Bronze awards were handed out in the READERS’ FAVORITE AWARDS for two books –

LIFE’S WHAT HAPPENS in the Historical-Event/Era genre

BION [Believe It Or Not] in the YOUNG ADULT ROMANCE genre

 

READERS’ FAVORITE  also provided some insightful reviews which we’re sharing along with the Amazon links for all three books.

Life’s What Happens by Kathy Clark encapsulates what happened in 1969 and 1970 to a generation of young people whose lives were irrevocably changed as a result of the first draft lottery in the Vietnam War. We begin and end the story in the present day, seeing some of the characters as they reunite at the Kent University Campus under mysterious circumstances. Their memories and their feelings on revisiting University now that they are so much older and wiser are very poignantly and beautifully portrayed. Those of us of a certain age can all sympathize with Don’s feelings of being invisible to today’s youth. The rest of the novel is the flashback to the fateful time shortly before and after the draft. From party-going youngsters out to have a good time and fit some study in, they are forced to grow up overnight and face huge responsibilities. Some cope, others don’t. Some act wisely, others panic and become victims of their circumstances. There are triumphs and tragedies, happy and sad endings.

This is such an atmospheric novel, cleverly helped along by naming each chapter after a pop song of the period. The authors spare no detail and effort in recreating settings and sensations from the period in question. These range from the minutiae of fashion to the political background to all the turmoil that invades the students’ lives. It seems to be done effortlessly on their part but it calls on great skill and writership qualities to be so evocative. We feel we’re there in all the action, sharing the fun and then the tension and horror or the situations that arise. All the characters we meet are believable and persuasive, both as youths and their older selves. It’s not always easy to maintain interest in a large group of protagonists in a novel but these authors achieve this well. This is a gripping read, with its educational, historical, imaginative and very human ingredients. Brilliant writing.

BION (Believe It Or Not) Book #3 of the CUL8R Time Travel Mystery/Romance series by Bob Kat is the tale of four high school students: Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey. They can talk to the dead and they can travel back in time. In this book, the focus is on Kelly and Zoey. The book gives an overview on how they found Thomas Edison’s invention that allows the teens to talk to dead people. This time they journey to 1927 where they take jobs with the Maxwell Circus. They are searching for a young man named Jesse. His sister contacted them through the “Telephone To The Dead,” seeking their help in locating her missing twin brother. There is a hint of romance with Kelly trying to figure out how she feels about Austin and Zoey and Jesse fall in love at first sight.

BION is a top notch book with top notch writing and a plot that will interest most young adults and many not so young adults. Bob Kat is a master at characterization, taking time to develop the characters, giving them flesh and making them likable. The characters in this book will have readers begging for more books in this series. The plot is interesting and moves along at a nice pace. This book combines time travel, romance, mystery, fantasy, humor and adventure to create a read that is impossible to put down. Bob Kat is the pen name of a husband and wife writing team. It is obvious they make a dynamite team. I highly recommend this book for young adults.

Next Romantic Suspense in the Scandals Series – Tramp Stamp

Hello all and welcome to the post-Christmas  / pre-New Years post about my next Romantic Suspense, aimed at the 18 to 30 year old new adult crowd.  I put book #1, BABY DADDY on sale this weekend for everyone.
So you know about the 18 to 30 year old crowd a little better I have been doing research in the US and UK abut new adults.  Over the past few weeks I have focused on my new adult romantic suspense series with blogs about a number of new adult related realities of the world…

* What do the Eagles, New Adults and Facebook have in common?

* A Novel about Generation X, Generation Y, Millennials, Net Generation, Generation Next, Echo Boomers, Peter Pan Generation, and The Lost Generation.

* Friends, Debt and Tattoos; New Adults, the Educated Homeless

* A mental basis for The New Adult Fiction

The top ten book sellers is Baby Daddy  Book #1 in the Scandals Romantic Suspense series and that link to the Amazon version is in this post.

The second book in the series is underway and tonight’s blog is a convenient way to avoid finishing chapter eight I guess.  Book #2 is titled Tramp Stamp and the title comes from the female client that walked in the door of Austin’s Scandals Investigations at the end of book #1.  The SCANDALS Series is the story of five brothers and sisters who inherited their biological father’s very successful PI agency in Austin, Texas.  By this time in their decision to take over the ownership and operation of the agency they have taken on multiple cases but the one that Tramp Stamp follows is of personal interest to Reno…not the town but the one son of Roger Eliot, former musician who had spent too many years as a bad boy on the road.

I hope you’ll come back and when I’m a little closer to the release in February…they’ll be free copies of the ARC [Advance Review Copy] available in exchange for your honest opinion.
