News Day

Yes! It's finally back since I've had a few moments in which to go round and find some tidbits to share.

For those of you who are new to my blog, I have a weekly feature where I share news from around the writing bloggosphere. News can be anything from a book deal to a blogfest and everything in between.

If you have a tidbit you'd like for me to share, please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with "News Day" in the subject line.

From This Blog: 

Last Week's Thursday Feature

Lidy Wilks visited on Thursday to tell us a bit about compiling her new poetry anthology Can You Catch My Drift? There's also a competition as part of that post, so check it out

Thursday Features

No one booked the next two Thursdays and after that, it's A to Z Challenge, but I'm still taking bookings for May and after that. At the moment, I still have May 5th and May 26th open, so if you'd like to do a guest post on my blog, please let me know. 

PLEASE NOTE that you can post here regardless of your publishing status. I'm literally keeping Thursdays open for members of this blogging community to get a bit of exposure to my audience, so you can book the place just to give people a taste of what your blog is like, if you wanted. But I do not accept submissions from professional copywriters looking to expand their portfolios. 

If you're interested in being part of the Thursday Feature, please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com with "Thursday Feature" in the subject line.

Cloaked in Secrecy
T.F. Walsh
(The Wulfkin Legacy #2)
Published by: Crimson Romance
Publication date: March 14th 2016
Genres: Adult, Paranormal

What better way for a pack of wulfkin shifters to remain in seclusion than to hide in plain sight?
Death has followed Alena Novac’s circus family for years, but when the police arrest her brother for murder, she must rescue him before he transforms behind prison walls. With less than a week to execute her plan, a member from the Varlac family who murdered her mother reappears. Now, Alena has to decide whether to make good on her promise to avenge her mother’s death or risk rescuing her brother.

Enre Ulf has one mission – prevent Alena’s father from claiming his territory and slaughtering his wulfkin pack in Transylvania. Enre may have turned his back on his Varlac heritage, but that doesn’t mean he won’t impersonate one to infiltrate the circus clan and take out their alpha. Knowing that his secrets will lead to his demise, Enre takes the risk in order to save his home. What he never planned on was his wolf claiming Alena as his mate.

Now with the police closing in, and the real Varlac threatening them, Alena and Enre must overcome their pasts to save their packs’ futures.

Cloaked in Secrecy is the book 2 in the Wulfkin Legacy series, but can be read a stand-alone-book.

Witch of the Cards
Catherine Stine

Fiera was born a sea witch with no inkling of her power. And now it might be too late.

Witch of the Cards is historical, supernatural romantic suspense set in 1932 on the Jersey shore. Twenty-two year-old Fiera has recently left the Brooklyn orphanage where she was raised, and works in Manhattan as a nanny. She gets a lucky break when her boss pays for her short vacation in Asbury Park. One evening, Fiera and her new friend Dulcie wander down the boardwalk and into Peter Dune’s Tarot & Séance, where they attend a card reading.

Fiera has always had an unsettling ability to know things before they happen and sense people’s hidden agendas. She longs to either find out the origin of her powers or else banish them because as is, they make her feel crazy. When, during the reading, her energies somehow bond with Peter Dune’s and form an undeniable ethereal force, a chain of revelations and dangerous events begin to unspool. For one, Fiera finds out she is a witch from a powerful sea clan, but that someone is out to stop her blossoming power forever. And though she is falling in love with Peter, he also has a secret side. He’s no card reader, but a private detective working to expose mediums. Despite this terrible betrayal, Fiera must make the choice to save Peter from a tragic Morro Cruise boat fire, or let him perish with his fellow investigators. Told in alternating viewpoints, we hear Fiera and Peter each struggle against their deep attraction. Secrets, lies, even murder, lace this dark fantasy.
