Merlin's Apprentice The Mage Book Tour and Giveaway

 


Merlin's Apprentice: The Mage

by Susan McCauley

Genre: Epic Middle Grade Arthurian Fantasy

Twelve-year-old Pip must embrace his magical powers to rescue his family from slavery—or help the king save the realm—a decision that will tear his world apart.

Desperate to keep his family together, Pip hides his power so he can be sold with them. But when his father and brother are sold to different mages and the slavers attempt to separate his mother and sister, Pip loses control and injures a slaver with magic. The uproar catches the attention of the southern king’s druid advisor, Merlin, who quickly offers a place to Pip, his sister, and his mother. On the road to King Arthur’s court, bandits attack their camp, and his family is further torn apart. Pip has no choice but to work with Merlin—who may not be the evil mage Pip assumes him to be—to learn to harness his powers so he can help King Arthur stop Mordred. Only then might Pip have a chance to see his family together again.

Emma Book Tour and Giveaway

 


Emma

Heritage Series Volume 1

by Susan Diane Black Blackmon

Genre: Historical Fiction

Emma lay very still, her eyes tightly closed. Sometimes - if she concentrated - she could make out her Momma’s face.
She was the youngest child of eighteen. She had barely been two when her beloved Momma died. Papa had managed to keep body and soul together for a little more than a year, not an easy task with four little ones underfoot. The older children had been a help to him, especially Betsy and Maggie. The bigger boys had helped with the farm’s never-ending chores, but it was never enough.
Papa was different. Losing Momma had hurt him deeply. His gentle eyes were sad. Even when he had given her horsey rides, his smile had never quite reached his eyes.
Emma supposed they shouldn’t have been surprised when Papa had come home one day and brought them a new ‘mother.’ Honestly, her memories of that day were fuzzy. She knew much of what she recalled was from what the older children had said in hushed voices behind ‘Mother’s’ back.
No one had wanted Papa to be sad, but why did 
she have to be their new mother?

Based on her maternal great-grandmother and some of the events in her life, much of the story is fiction. However, there are threads of reality woven throughout Emma’s story.
The real-life Emma was, in fact, the youngest in a family of eighteen children, which included three sets of twins and a set of quadruplets. Yes, the article in The Austin Weekly Statesman suggested the fair association should invite the family to attend as “honored guests” when the quadruplet girls were born.

As to the rest, it is up to the reader to decide, fact or fiction.

Daniel Brown Boultinghouse & Mary Jane Russell:

A Collection of Civil War Letters and Family Documents with Genealogical & Historical Commentary

Compiled by Susan Diane Black Blackmon

Genre: Historical Non-Fiction

Daniel Brown “D. B.” Boultinghouse and Mary Jane (Russell), his wife, migrated from Scott County, Arkansas to Texas sometime between March 1849 and June 1850. We know that in 1850, their neighbors in Lampasas County, Texas were Mary Jane’s older brother, D. W. Russell and her father, John.
For thirteen years, the only remarkable events that were documented in their lives are the births and deaths of six small children. As if that were not enough to crush the souls of this young couple, in 1861 their lives were changed forever by the American Civil War.
Hidden away for 158 years, the letters that chronicled their daily lives quietly passed from generation to generation, until finally making their way into the hands of the author. The unrealized dream of D. B. and Mary Jane’s great-grandson, Joe Lee Mankins, was to share these family treasures with his family and the world.
Blended with family documents and stories as well as historical commentary, the reader will be caught up in the story and transported to a simpler yet more difficult era. Ninety-one pages of letters, many with images of the originals, are transcribed for ease of reading.

Who knew that a Junior High School History assignment would turn into a passion for genealogy which has become a love of historical fiction stories?

In 1976, the assignment was to write an autobiography and fill out a Pedigree Chart - thus began “The Tale of the Beautiful Princess or Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Me, But Were Afraid to Ask,” and 45-plus years of researching my family.

Countless hours of my ‘MamMaw’ and Great-aunt Ruth sharing the stories of my ancestors have resulted in the publication of two sets of genealogy books on my Boultinghouse and Driver lines. A third set on the John Gray Parks family is in the works.

In 2022, I was privileged to bring to life the dream of my late cousin, Joe Lee Mankins. The Daniel Brown Boultinghouse & Mary Jane Russell Civil War Letters book is a story of love and heartbreak in the written words of the main characters. The book contains images of many original letters, some more than 171 years old. Not to worry, each page has a transcript for easier reading.

After so many years of research, I have many stories and anecdotes in my mind. With a ‘nudge’ from my older sister, some of those stories wandered onto the page and became Emma.

Based on my maternal great-grandmother and some of the events in her life, much of the story is fiction. However, there are threads of reality woven throughout Emma’s story.

Read an Excerpt

“Watch your left!” shouted the leader of the golden eagles. Before the angel could maneuver to his right, blinding lightning struck across the dark clouds, just missing his left wing. The very next moment, deafening thunder numbed everything. The angel and the accompanying eagles held their nerves and pushed through the expanding wall of clouds. The leader of the eagles anticipated growing dangers and feared they would get lost. He yelled, “I can’t help you if I can’t see where we are going. The storm is escalating into a tornado. We won’t be able to withstand these powerful winds for long. Everyone, move up above the thunderstorm. We’ll resume our journey from there.”

The angel and the eagles listened to the leader’s call and flew up above the clouds. Looking down on the thundering clouds, the leader took a deep sigh of relief. He quickly turned his head toward the others to check their condition. “What happened to your wings?” the shocked leader screamed at the angel.

The angel looked instinctively on his sides. There were no wings but flapping arms. A sudden gush of panic infused in him as he realized he was just a boy and not an angel. Right away, the horrified boy fell into the dark mushrooming clouds, screaming from the bottom of his gut. His arms and legs kept flailing in despair until he disappeared into the dark swirling storm.

About the Author:B. Singh grew up in a small city, Chandigarh, located near the foothills of the mighty Himalayas in northwest India. Since his childhood, he has always had an inquisitive mindset. He doesn’t settle for the pre-existing answers if they don’t make sense to him. Instead, he explores, experiments, and finds the answer himself. He has traveled across India from north to south not only for his education but also to explore different cultures and values. To continue his journey of exploration, he moved from India to Canada. After graduating from the University of Windsor, Canada, he conceived the idea of compiling his learnings in the form of a spiritual fantasy book. This well-crafted and awe-inspiring adventurous journey into a fantasy world is full of chiseled gems of wisdom that will enrich the lives of every human being on earth.

A Snowlit Christmas Kiss

Regency Christmas Kisses Book 1

by Larissa Lyons

Genre: Holiday Regency Romance 

Santa claws? A roguish feline plays matchmaker for two lonely souls.

A mischievous feline and a case of mistaken identity land two lonely souls together during a wretched, snowy night. Arguing over the business end of a shovel, they take refuge from the storm and find that sparks and kisses warm their frigid selves as much as unexpected laughter. But he’s engaged, and she’s decided to never marry, so in the morning they go their separate ways, leaving pieces of their hearts behind…

Battle scarred and bone-weary, the prodigal Lord Redford finally returns home—intent on pushing everyone away. Only he’s greeted not with the small welcome party he expected, but with a house full of people ready to celebrate his engagement. Which is going to prove rather a challenge, given how he’s never met his betrothed… Or has he?

When Anne rushes to the door, ready to give her tardy intended a sound dressing down and inform the lout who’s ignored her since their betrothal began that she has no use for marriage—or him—she’s greeted with a host of surprises.

Merry mistress or marriage? Or mayhap, nothing at all?

Sarah's Story

The Luck of the Irish Gift Book 2

Sarah had inherited the same “Luck of the Irish” gift as her Uncle Johnny. Where he had used his gift in his military career and his security business protecting people, she hide from the world. As a child, she picked up her Mother's fear of separation and later felt her parents terror as their plane crashed in the mountains. From that moment on, she stayed close to her Uncle, wanting his protection and rarely venturing outside of her loft. The only time she did go out is when she would meet clients to design and make the perfect dress for them, whether it was for parties or their weddings. Using her gift to know exactly what would fit each personality. Professionally, her business was thriving, yet personally, she kept herself locked away.

One day while looking out the window and seeing all the people in the park enjoying life, she realized how much she was missing out by staying hidden. Just as she was thinking those thoughts, her best friend, Jeffrey walks into her loft. He too works for the security company and knows of a simple job in Miami, Florida she would be perfect for. His friend, Brandon, owns a design company that was getting their designs stolen and could not figure out who the mole was. With her fashion experience and gift, she would be the perfect person to go undercover and find the thief.

It should have been an easy job but got complicated very quickly when Nicco Kombi purchases Brandon's company. The day she meets him, his energy is so strong it knocks her into her chair. Never before had she felt such strong emotions from a man. She knew she should stay away from him, but the moment he touches her hand, she felt the electric current her Uncle Johnny and Aunt Marta always talked about. She always thought it was them making up a story, but now realized it was real. The only question is, could Nicco possibly be or mole, or is he the key to unlocking her heart?

In each of my books, there is a personal connection, whether it is the people, places or events. In my latest book, "I Saw The Signs, I Just Ignored Them", I did take this cruise with my three girlfriends. I just had fun embellishing what happened to us.

Bruce Blake lives in a small town on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. When pressing issues like shovelling snow and building igloos don't take up his spare time, Bruce can be found taking the dog sled to the nearest cafe to work on his short stories and novels.Actually, Victoria, B.C. is only a couple hours north of Seattle, Wash., where more rain is seen than snow. Bruce is the father of two amazing humans and does his very best to keep a bearded dragon alive and healthy, though he doesn't have much success at doing the same with house plants. He spends too much time work a traditional job and not enough time writing but hopes to change all that soon.
