Stay Safe, Everyone

Hi, everyone!

I’m not having a normal post this week because I’m currently in Florida. While I am safe in a no-evacuation zone with plenty of food and water I do not know how long I’ll have power.

If you are in an area that will be affected by hurricanes, then please stay safe. Too many lives have already been lost to hurricanes this year.

If you are safe, then please donate for hurricane relief. The devastation is catastrophic and it is only going to get worse. Donate to One America Appeal to help those affected by Harvey and Irma.

Please do what you can to help others in your area.  Between the destruction caused by the wildfires on the west coast, the hurricanes in the south, and the earthquake that struck Mexico, it’s looking like the end of days, but it’s not. It’s more important than ever that everyone does what they can to recover from the destruction and to prevent further destruction.

Even if you do not have the time to volunteer or the money to donate, you can still help. Download the app, Charity Miles.

Charity Miles works with sponsors to donate money when you run, walk, or bike with their app open. You can raise $0.25 for every mile you run or walk and $0.10 for every mile you bike.

Set your charity to Habitat for Humanity to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and keep the app open when you hit the gym or all day to log all your walking. You can always do what I do and walk on the treadmill while reading 🙂 

Stay safe, everyone, and take care of each other. Happy reading.

Book Review: Eternity by Maggie Shayne

6baad4c8166fb3b89d4ff0a592bfab85300 years ago, Raven St. James was hanged for witchcraft. But she revives among the dead to find herself alive. She is an Immortal High Witch, one of the light. A note from her mother warns that there are others, those of the Dark, who preserve their own lives by taking the hearts of those like her.

Duncan Wallace’s forbidden love for the secretive lass costs him his life.

300 years later, he loves her again, tormented by hazy memories of a past that can’t be real. She tells him of another lifetime, claims to be immortal. Though he knows she’s deluded, he can’t stay away. And the Dark Witch after her heart is far closer than either of them know.

Reading for a Better World: Falling for Them

I’m a firm believer that no one is helpless in making the world a better place. I try to help as much as I can, which is why I started the Read for a Better World program.

And I’m always excited in finding other people doing the same thing. So I was ecstatic when Alisha Gallant told me about Falling for Them: A New Adult Reverse Harem Collection.

This collection has 10 reverse harem stories, with a total of 109 pages, for only $1.99. This includes a story from New York Times bestselling author C.L. Stone. It’s an amazing deal.

All profits go to charity. 

While they don’t say which charity in the description for legal reasons, Alisha told me the charity is St. Jude’s Memorial Hospital, which is an outstanding cause. It was also the deciding factor on me buying it or not. I’ve been curious about reverse harem for a long time, and this collection seems like a great place to start.

I haven’t read any, so I cannot give my own opinion of the quality of the content, but I trust Alisha’s judgment. Also, out of 38 reviews on Amazon, it has 4.1 out of 5 stars. 

These are from some of the top reviews:

I’m always looking for RH stories that have an actual plot and these did not disappoint. This anthology had something for everyone and the overwhelming majority were really well written. The positives way outweigh the few negatives that I had, so I feel good in leaving a five star review.– Kindle Customer

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book that was given to me by Rebecca Royce. The anthology as a pure delight to read and I can’t wait to get to read another one, or other books by the authors who participated in its creation. — Sandra Hould

These are full on love stories and should not be mistaken with just being about sex. They are all about the women being safe, protected and loved. These tales are intense with satisfying romance, just with more than just one man.– Ann Chapatte
