#BlogTour #LoveBooksTours @LoveBooksGroup / #Excerpt : Clairvoyants: The Fourth Kinetic – Brady Moore @BMooreTheAuteur @CayellePub

– ‘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 on the ‘Clairvoyants: The Fourth Kinetic’ blogtour, organized by Love Books Tour.
To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

Brady was born and bred in Charlotte, North Carolina where years of Saturday morning cartoons, superhero comics and science-fiction movies slowly manifested into aspirations of being a fiction author. He originally graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2010 with a degree in Media Studies and a goal of putting his skills as a writer toward journalism. The idea to write novels came after spending years of working as a theater manager and blogging about movies. If he’s not playing with his hyperactive jack russell terrier or binging shows on Netflix with his wife, he’s probably off plotting his next project.

Synopsis :

There are four breeds of Clairvoyants: Kinetics who can move objects with their minds, Prophets who have involuntary visions of the future, Readers who can explore the deepest thoughts of others in an instant and Aural who can transfer their consciousness to control the bodies of others.
17-year-old Rion Grean is a Kinetic, but he has no idea there are others like him. His protective mother kept them on the move, even refusing to tell him about the father he never knew. When an accident separates them, he finds himself on the run from a covert, militaristic force that sees his kind as wasps that have strayed into the homes of normal humanity. Suddenly engulfed within the different factions of the Clairvoyants, the boy who has never been good at making friends must determine who to follow.
Rion is like many youth. He is talented and intelligent, but his circumstances have made him reserved and unsure about where he stands with his peers and what his purpose is in life. When he is forced out of his comfort zone, he quickly discovers the true meanings of friendship and family. This isn’t a story about heroes and villains. It is a deeply personal journey of one boy’s path to self-discovery and the struggle to coexist with a world designed to fear what it doesn’t understand.

Excerpt :

I stare upward at the fading stars in the indigo sky. Soon, the morning sun will peak over the acres of rolling hills, and I’ll have to wish the stars farewell. I don’t know why I’m so fascinated by them. Maybe it’s because, no matter how many times the angles change, the stars remain the same. Maybe it’s because they’re the only thing in my life that are consistent. It’s like we’re kindred spirits asking each other the same questions. Why are you here? What is your purpose?
I place my bulky, vintage headphones atop my curly, tapered hair and pull my cell phone from my jean pocket. A few taps of my finger against the screen, and a beat begins to swarm in my ears to match my heart. My eyes close and my head nods as the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest resonate through every pore like a warm cup of coffee.
I open my eyes just in time to see my mother pulling from the driveway in her crimson SUV. She blows me a kiss and waves. I can read the look of anxious optimism in her sparkling light brown eyes like a billboard. It only makes me shake my head and smirk as I wave back. What’s there to worry about? New schools. New surroundings. I’ve done them so many times they’ve become as much of a routine as tying my shoes.
The school bus is pulling up over the hill just as my mother’s car disappears. It’s astonishing how few houses there are in the distance. Most of the ones I do catch seem far from lived in. It can only be a pain for the bus to pick me up so far off course. I quickly adjust the lone strap of my backpack that hangs over my shoulder and tuck my hands into the pockets of my gray jacket. The weather in this tiny Missouri town doesn’t seem too bad. Not too hot, not too cold. At least I know there is one thing positive about this place other than the clear skies.

Unable to step away from the case, Mahler tries to piece together why Fleming would retire to such a remote location. But the deeper he digs, the more disturbing the investigation becomes.
Seal bones, witches’ salve, and runic symbols appear everywhere he looks, ushering Mahler towards Fleming’s most notorious unsolved case: the ‘Witchfinder’ murders. And towards a dark and uncomfortable truth someone has gone to great lengths to bury…

#PublicationDayBlitz #LoveBooksTours @LoveBooksTours / #PromoPost : By My Sword Alone #ByMySwordAlone – David Black @lume_books

– ‘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 on the ‘By My Sword Alone’ Publication Day Blitz, organized by Love Books Tours.
To promote this book I have some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

David Black is the author of the best-selling Harry Gilmour series set in the Royal Navy submarine service during World War Two. He also wrote the novella All the Freshness of the Morning, a fictionalized account of President John F. Kennedy’s epic World War Two service as Skipper of the US Navy torpedo boat PT-109 in South Pacific. Black is a former UK national newspaper journalist and TV documentary producer. He now lives in Argyll and writes full time.

Synopsis :

The Battle of Glenshiel, 1719. Thirteen-year-old James Lindsay watches the action unfold as the Jacobite forces supported by his family are defeated. For the rebels, it is the beginning of the end. But for James, forever marked by the battle, it is truly just the beginning.
Later, forced to flee Scotland, James finds himself on the European mainland and eventually in the Roman palace of his own ‘king’. There, he experiences all kinds of adventure, from the romantic to the brutal. Chastened by time and experience, he gradually loses the naivety of youth and takes a more mercenary approach as the great events of history unfold.
Yet all the while, he is aware of developing philosophies and how they are extending, slowly, into the lives of men and women – and monarchs. On he battles, through the Age of Enlightenment – until he meets a woman who challenges everything …
By My Sword Alone is a striking blend of historical novel and psychological profile that immerses readers in the thought, politics and bloodshed of eighteenth-century Europe. It will please David Black’s many fans and likely win him many more.
David Black is a former Fleet Street journalist and television reporter, and author of the popular Harry Gilmour series of novels. He lives in Ayrshire.

About the Author :

Synopsis :

Simon Lord has it all—the beautiful fiancé, the loving family, the sprawling mansion, and the famous last name. Little does he know that what is supposed to be the happiest day of his life will become his last. The little town of Solomon’s Wake has managed to keeps its secrets hidden for nearly a century, but no darkness can lie dormant forever. It only takes one fateful night, one storm, one wedding, for a vampire to rise, a werewolf to escape, and a witch’s age-old curse to rise again.
Decades later, the Lord family is a shadow of its former self. Windwood, the Lord family ancestral home, sits in near ruin as Simon Lord lies in a coma, but life goes on. That is until Joshua Lord makes the fateful decision to return to Windwood with his young family. Curses, as young Jenna Lord finds out, do not have an expiration date. The Lords and their friends find themselves battling vicious werewolves, homicidal grandmothers, the unrelenting spirit of a vengeful witch, and their own dark pasts. The only question is, who will make it out of Windwood alive this time?
