ABOUT THE BOOK:Blud_and_Magick_Preston_Norton_novel_9781462110889_cover

Blud and Magick

“Uncle Ed, I . . . I did that to them,” she stammered.

Edwin cocked an eyebrow. “Did what?”

She pointed to the two bodies, impaled by ice.

“You did?” His eyes became wide with concern.

Darla nodded, biting her lip. “Uncle Ed . . . what am I?”

Darla Summer was born from the ashes of the dead Shadow Lord, Remmus Alrad. This left the Seven Sages to deliberate what was to be done with her. Darius, the Sage who slew the Shadow Lord, wants her dead. Another Sage, Edwin, believes she deserves a chance to live. Edwin is granted permission to raise her in the human world under the condition that her true identity not be revealed until an appointed time.

Fourteen years later, Darla has no idea of her magical beginnings or her dark heritage. But when she meets Ash and Cirrus—teenage brothers who are not so human themselves—her world is turned upside down. An organization known as the Shadow Risers is out to collect her, claiming that she is the vessel of their Master, and Darla is forced to fight back. But how do you fight your greatest enemy when he’s living inside you?

#VISIT AND #GIVEAWAY WITH CHRISTIAN AUTHOR, JANET K. HALLING….

MBA&M PRESENTS….

JANET K. HALLING!!

WELCOME JANET TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE!

My Favorite Christmas Memories

By: Janet K. Halling, Author of An Unexpected Angel, available now!

 

I have many wonderful memories of Christmas. My family had a lot of traditions that are probably familiar to many…pajamas for Christmas Eve, a special Christmas dinner (on the good china!), reading the Christmas story from the Bible, delivering treats to the neighbors… these things and many more created the wonderful Christmases of my childhood.

 

Among my favorite memories are the years my siblings and I would sleep in the same room. We didn’t do it every year – for reasons that will soon become obvious – but when we did, it was awesome.

 

We slept in my room because it was the biggest and because it was directly over my parent’s bedroom. I don’t know why they allowed this. Probably because all the hollering and banging around up there meant they could at least keep track of us all, especially on this night when stealth was so important!

 

After one last Christmas carol, a family prayer, and some truly speedy washing up, my two sisters and three brothers would drag their sleeping bags into my room. Everyone smelled like new flannel and toothpaste and we were all overly-sugared, wild-eyed, and completely crazy with excitement.

 

It would begin innocently enough. My parents would tuck us in, kiss us goodnight, and close the door. We would lie there quietly until inevitably someone would let out a happy little shriek. Then someone else would shriek back and maybe start kicking to rustle their sleeping bag. And on and on until we had become complete maniacs…jumping, squealing, laughing, pounding on the floor, shouting Santa Claus songs at the top of our lungs…one year we even pulled my bed into the middle of the room and did gymnastics over it.

 

Inevitably, Mom would come in and tell us to quiet down so we’d straighten our bedding, turn out the lights, and try again. And always with the same result. Complete chaos until finally we collapsed from exhaustion.

 

Now I am a mom and am trying to give my children that same Christmas magic. And some years I have to poke my head into my daughter’s room to tell my four children to settle down because they are jumping, squealing, and laughing; overly-sugared, wild-eyed, and smelling of new flannel and toothpaste.

 

And I smile.

Oh! What a wonderful memory! Thanks for sharing your Christmas memory with us and our readers.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE AND HAPPY MEMORIES!

AN UNEXPECTED ANGEL

JANET K. HALLING

An Unexpected Angel

It was Christmas Eve, and the Empire State Building was lit with red and green. The streets were jammed with traffic, and the fog was rolling in off the Hudson, turning the streetlights into misty orbs.

Ella sighed and turned away from the window and the twinkling lights below, determined not to give in to the painful memories that had been lurking in the back of her mind all day.

Ella Davies hates Christmas. Every year she spends the holidays working, trying to bury the pain of a childhood tragedy. But this season, Ella’s about to learn something only an angel could teach her.

With the help of an unlikely friend, Ella gains new hope and discovers the truth about her past, learning the power of forgiveness along the way.

This modern twist on a Christmas classic will remind you that the best gifts of all are the loved ones you learn to treasure!

ON TOUR: PATRICIA HANRION’S “THE JINGLE BELL BUM”…..

MBA&M AND CEDAR FORT PUBLISHING PRESENTS….

ON TOUR:

THE JINGLE BELL BUM AND PATRICIA HANRION…

 A moving and unforgettable read, this inspiring true story teaches all of us that following the words of the Savior is far more important than having the perfect Christmas.

 

Here is a brief description of the book:

Joseph was a shabby imitation of Santa Claus, with his Salvation Army kettle in front of a Kmart, but what no one could have guessed was that Joseph was a miracle waiting to happen. This inspiring Christmas story tells the true tale of a group of teenage carolers who changed the life of a down-and-out bum. A moving and unforgettable read!
