Afbeelding1“They called me the Whore Queen. Some even called me the Evil Queen.
But they could call me whatever they wanted. I was still queen.”
Rhiandra Tiercelin hungers for power and her charm has always been her sharpest weapon in hunting it. So when a brutal attack leaves her physically scarred, desperation drives her to make a deal with Draven, a magic-wielding stranger who is inexplicably compelling and definitely dangerous. She knows she can’t trust him, but he when he offers to make her a queen, the temptation is too enticing to resist.
Armed with a glamoured face and an enchanted apple, Rhiandra is determined to scheme her way into a crown, even if it means risking the deadly punishment for unsanctioned magic use. But Draven is playing a bigger game, and she is just one piece on the board.
Can she keep her wits about her long enough to uncover his secrets, or will he lure her down a path she will come to regret?
Her Dark Reflection is the first book in a new dark romantic fantasy series perfect for fans of Raven Kennedy, Jennifer Armentrout and Sarah A. Parker. If you like cunning, ambitious heroines, morally ambiguous men and romance that toes the line between love and hate, then you’ll love Hailey Jade’s dark reimagining of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Her PhD examined the history of madness and of psychiatric provision in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. After a couple years spent discovering that postdocs in history were rarer than wolves in Scotland and working as a freelance horse trainer, she went back to uni for an MSc in journalism at Strathclyde University. She published her first novel, In the Canyons of Shadows and Light, in 2020.

As a young detective facing entrenched power structures and a grinding treadmill of violence and death, Alex finds himself driven into making unconscionable choices that will haunt him forever.
Two decades later, Alex must face his past when courts overturn the wrongful convictions of people he’d arrested, and a federal grand jury opens an investigation into police misconduct and abuses of power.
A soaring epic of life and death, power, injustice, and at its heart, humanity, unfolding on the New York City streets.

About the Author :

Domhnall O'Donoghue HeadshotHailing from Navan in the royal county of Meath, Domhnall is a graduate of the Bachelor in Acting Studies Programme, Trinity College Dublin, later completing a Master’s in Screenwriting at Dún Laoghaire IADT.
He now works as an actor and a journalist, dividing his time between Galway, where he films TG4’s award-winning series, Ros na Rún, Dublin and Venice, where he and his Italian lover continuously promise their well-worn livers that they will refrain from quaffing so much Prosecco. (Unfortunately, it seems some vows, just like nearby Rome, were not built in a day.)
Wine-drinking aside, for more than four years, Domhnall has also enjoyed the responsibility of being Assistant Editor at Irish Tatler Man, a title whose various awards includes Consumer Magazine of the Year. Thanks to this role, he interviewed a host of high-profile names such as Tommy Hilfiger, Chris Pine, Kevin Spacey, David Gandy, and Jacques Villeneuve.
Domhnall has written for the majority of Ireland’s leading newspapers and magazines, including the Irish Independent, The Irish Times and RTE. He also writes a monthly column in Woman’s Way, the country’s biggest-selling weekly magazine.
His first novel, Sister Agatha: the World’s Oldest Serial Killer, was released in 2016 to critical acclaim (Tirgearr Publishing). His second and third books, Colin and the Concubine and Crazy for You were published by Mercier Press, Ireland’s oldest publishing house.

At last count, she was the fifth.
Never one to admit defeat, Sister Agatha concocts a bold Plan B. Using her final days, she intends on travelling the world to meet the only four people whose birthday cakes boast more candles than hers.
And then, one by one, she will kill them.

The Major Minor Murders Tour Poster

Today I’m on the ‘The Major Minor Murders’ blogtour, organized by Zooloo’s Book Tours.
To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

Jim McGhee Author PhotoJim McGhee’s a former award-winning environmental journalist.
Based in East Lothian, near Edinburgh, Scotland, he spends much of each year (in normal times) in the South of France, the main setting for the DI Barney Mains series, with tolerant wife Jean and rampant Irish Terrier, Jack.
After a full-on career as a campaigning newspaper reporter, he and Jean launched their own recruitment company in central Edinburgh and for twelve fun-packed years worked closely together alongside their brilliant team – without spilling a single drop of blood.
The Alpes-Maritimes and Var departments, on the other hand, have provided a host of dramatic locations just perfect as inspiration for the odd spot of fictional gore.
Locals, blessed with scenery ranging from unspoiled mountain villages to the classic palms-and-marinas coast, claim that they can be swimming one moment and skiing a little over an hour later.
Though when not writing or travelling en famille, Jim’s more likely to be off on a hike in the hills with his ever-ready buddy, Jack.

Synopsis :

The Major Minor Murders Tour PosterThere’s been a murder. And the only suspect has vanished.
Even his own brother, DI Barney Mains, thinks he’s guilty.
But when the missing man’s teenage daughter begs Barney to help, he has no choice.
And before long he starts to question whether the criminal brother he hasn’t seen for ten years could actually be innocent this time.
It’s just that everyone seems to be in an all-fired hurry to pin the killing on him.
Despite there being a pair of highly visible alternative candidates – a tall ex-army type and a sidekick built like a tank.
The trail leads Barney to the South of France and the gated world of the super-rich.
For only there will he discover whether his brother is a killer on the run.
Or the next victim…

Excerpt :

They checked in then took turns to shower. Barney sensed how natural they were around each other, as if they’d been doing this for years. They jumped into bed without any first-night nonsense then lay there under the satin duvet in their stiff white cotton gowns, giggling like silly kids. ‘What’s this?’ she asked, running a finger down a five-inch scar on his chest.
‘Oh, that? That was when I hiked across the Outback. Ended up on Bondi Beach. Shark attack.’
‘Yeah, right.’
‘OK, it was actually on Portobello Prom when I fell off my roller skates. Lost a very good ice-cream cone that day, too. Changed my life.’
She thumped him on his scar. ‘Come on big boy. I’ll make you forget all about it.’ She opened her gown and slid on top of him, opening his as she went. He felt the silky heat of her skin then grinned like a Cheshire cat as she lowered her wicked, flushed face to his, her fragrant, damp hair coating his throat.
And she did make him forget. The ice-cream, everything. By the time he resurfaced he realised that he’d actually forgotten all about art fraud and murder too. It was around five in the evening. She was purring contentedly, her right arm draped limply across him. He slipped out of bed as carefully as he could. He found his phone and checked messages. There was a text from Abbey. Great news! Dad’s getting out tonight! Picking him up at seven. Be there or else! He smiled then texted back: I always respond to threats!
He crawled back into bed. She stirred. ‘Sorry, did I wake you?’ he said. But he wasn’t sorry at all.

– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –

Today I’m super pleased to be on the blogtour, organized by Book & Wine Lovers Marketing, to reveal the cover of

Kingdom Come
By
Danielle M. Orsino

But first some information

About the Author :

Danielle M. Orsino is a fantasy novelist whose compelling word-weaving pays homage to a multitude of personal muses, from Chris Claremont and George Pérez (both famous comic book writers), to Anne Rice, Jim Henson and Wonder Woman. The creative spark of storytelling has been with Danielle ever since she was a child, but martial arts and her nursing career took center stage into adulthood.
Then, on a day like any other, it was reignited during the most unexpected of moments: while treating one of her patients. It started as a simple tale to distract her patient and transformed into a fantastical narrative that would become the foundation for the series “The Birth of Fae”.
In keeping with the roots of her creativity, it was a unanimous decision by 4 Horsemen Publishing to place her on the cover of each book in all her Fae cosplay glory. The series also features Los, an affable chameleon dragon, inspired by her fun-loving Yorkie named Carlos.
This “New Queen of the Fae’s” unmatched world-building and masterful Fae-origin retellings have led to an ever-growing queendom of “Fae-natics”.

Synopsis :

What would you do for love? How much would you sacrifice?
All is peaceful in the Veil, which is usually when everything falls apart…
After centuries of conflict and mistrust, the Court of Light and the Court of Dark are about to unite as the Court of the Fae. Queen Aurora of the Court of Light and King Jarvok of the Court of Dark have fallen in love despite all odds. A relationship of political convenience has turned into something real and tangible for the two monarchs.
But not every Fae is happy about an impending union. Queen Aurora’s bishops, her most trusted advisors, have never lost touch with their old Angelic ways. They still believe that Virtues and Power Angels were never meant to mix. They feel Queen Aurora is no longer suitable to rule the Court of Light. The bishops mount a complex coup d’état to grasp the throne. Then a new player enters the game, and no one ever saw them coming.
The foundation of peace between the Light and Dark Fae crumbles with one last act of betrayal. Was it all an illusion? Was it an act of duplicity or the ultimate act of love? King Jarvok is about to learn Kyanite armor cannot protect a warrior from a broken heart, but he has been keeping secrets of his own.

After this great teaser I hope you are still excited for the

blog-cover reveal
