Cover Reveal: Stained by Cheryl Rainfield

Book Description:

In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for "normal." Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.

Tag Line:

Sometimes you have to be your own hero.

Release Date:

Nov 19, 2013

Publisher:

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

From the author:

Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah's strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.

About the Author

Jeanette Battista graduated with an English degree with a concentration in medieval literature which explains her possibly unhealthy fixation on edged weapons and cathedral architecture. She spent a summer in England and Scotland studying the historical King Arthur, which did nothing to curb her obsession. To satisfy her adrenaline cravings—since sword fighting is not widely accepted in these modern times—she rode a motorcycle at ridiculously high speeds, got some tattoos, and took kickboxing and boxing classes. She gave up the bike when her daughter came along, although she still gets pummeled at the gym on a regular basis.

When she’s not writing or working, Jeanette spends time with family, hikes, reads, makes decadent brownies, buys killer boots, and plays Pocket Frogs. She wishes there were more hours in the day so she could actually do more of these things. She lives with her daughter and their ancient, ill-tempered cat in North Carolina.

I'll be honest--I wasn't planning to write a book like Leopard Moon. I had an entirely different story in my head at the time, but it just wasn't coming into clear focus. That's the funny way writing works though: there I am, sitting at a red light on my way to meet my friends for a birthday martini and pedicure, listening to Florence + the Machine and WHAM! The song Howl comes on and this whole lovely scene just starts unfolding in my head. There was Kess, running through the woods, ripping off of her clothes as she triggered a change into a black leopard. And there was Cormac, standing in a different part of the woods being beaten mercilessly by the villain. I didn't know Sek was going to turn out to be Kess' brother, but I did know who he was as a character and what he wanted.

It was truly a gift: the entire final fight scene just unspooled itself along with the song lyrics. Each beat of the song matched a key point in the fight. The more I listened, the more I realized that the lyrics could apply to all of the characters in the main triangle at some point in the story I suddenly wanted to tell. And I wanted that story to be more than just boy meeting girl--I wanted that story to be about girl saving boy, but more importantly about girl saving herself. The song Howl gave me Kess first and Sekhmet second, so a lot of what I tried to do with them was to show them as two halves of a whole, two sides of a coin. Howl, at least to me, wasn't a love song at all--it was a song about possession and obsession and all of those things that show up in our animal drives. that we'd like to forget exists.

So when I began to craft Kess and Sek, Howl played on a continuous loop. And though the song speaks of wolves, I knew these two had to be cats. Wolves have a more social nature and are more easily understood by us--I think it comes from them being a a precursor to our beloved dogs. Cats are an unknown quantity, strange and separate, even if they choose to share space with us. I wanted real darkness there, not just a brief bit of danger that would be easily resolved. Obsession and mental illness gave Sek that scariness, but also--I hope--a bit of sympathy. He really does love his sister and wants what is best for her and his clan. I never intended to excuse his behavior, but I did want to try and understand it.

Just like the song made me understand that narrator of that story. I can only hope I did half so well.

My Thoughts: Wow! This cover just popped out at me. I love how the red in the wings stands out against the background. Other than the cover and summary I think the fact that the author is a high school student and is giving the proceeds from the purchases to charity, is an amazing reason to buy this book.

Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu

Goodreads Summary:
What would you do if you found out your girlfriend laid an egg every time she had sex? Who would you be if you were invited to a party in Beijing but had to make up a brand-new identity for six weeks? Peter Tieryas Liu's Watering Heaven is a travelogue of and requiem for the American dream in all its bizarre manifestations and a surreal, fantastic journey through the streets, alleys, and airports of China. Whether it's a monk who uses acupuncture needles to help him fly or a city filled with rats about to be exterminated so that the mayor can win his reelection bid, be prepared to laugh, swoon, and shudder at the answers Liu offers in this provocative debut collection.
My Thoughts:
I am so glad I read this book. The collection of stories is very unique and definitely keeps readers captivated. With most of the stories I had no clue as to what was going to happen so I was always surprised. I really liked that Peter's work was able to keep me guessing and held my attention. That alone makes an excellent read for me. I would definitely recommend this book for those of you that are looking for something different that will still keep you enthralled!
**I received this book for review but that has in no way effected my opinion.**
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Today we have Peter Tieryas Liu (PTL) author of Watering Heaven, on At Random (AR) for an interview.
(AR) Welcome Peter!
(PTL) Thank you! Glad to be here!
---
(AR) Where did you come up with the ideas for Watering Heaven?
(PTL) Watering Heaven’s individual stories were written over several years. The first published one was “58 Randoms Deaths and Unrequited Love” which I wrote in 2005. The last story I wrote was “Resistance” in 2011. The other stories were written between all of these. So many different things have inspired me, from my travels to China, to a night out on the town with friends in the streets of San Francisco. Let me cite one specific example. The story, “Cold Fusion,” was inspired when I heard about an experiment involving sharks and fish. They were placed together in a tank with only a glass partition separating them. As the sharks would hit the partition, they learned they could not cross over the barrier. Even after it was removed, they never went over to the fish side even though nothing separated them. Something about that image struck a chord for me, especially in regards to the difficulties of relationships. Cross that in with my fascination for cold fusion and the story was born.
---
(AR) Was any particular story more difficult to write than the others?
(PTL) That’s a great question and I struggled with the answer as all of them were difficult in very different ways. Some stories just wrote themselves whereas others went through hundreds of iterations. I’m going to go with the story of “Resistance” because it was one of my most personal stories and a lot of emotions raged through me as I wrote it. I actually figured out the ending before I wrote the story. Basically, I wanted an ending where you think the main character survives, and then he dies. Of course, my editor wanted that changed as it seemed to come out of nowhere so we went through several iterations and the final ending is one of grim reality mixed with hope. I’m really glad we made that change!
---
(AR) Are there any authors that have inspired you?
(PTL) Too many. John Steinbeck, Herman Melville, Cao Xueqin, Soren Kierkegaard, Leza Lowitz, William Blake (whose poetry inspired the title), and hundreds of more writers. It’s tough to be a good writer if you aren’t a good reader as well.
(AR) I never thought of it that way!
---
(AR) Have you always known you wanted to write?
(PTL) Odd to say, but yes, since I was very young. I always loved story-telling, loved books, movies, and games. So I was immensely honored that Signal 8 published my debut collection. I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of short stories and essays published, but there’s no feeling quite like holding your own book in your hands and sharing it with others.
---
(AR) Are you currently working on anything now?
(PTL) My first novel was picked up for an option by Signal 8 Press. It’s called The Wingless and it’s a noir tale about a group of Asian-Americans (one a former game developer) hunting down a serial killer in Los Angeles.
(AR) That sounds very interesting Peter.
---
(AR) Thank you so much for joining us today taking the time to answer our questions.
(PTL) Thank you very much for your time!

Shelf Candy Saturday (35): Better Than Chocolate and Vanity Fare

Shelf Candy Saturday is hosted by A Night's Dream of Books.

Last year I started to really enjoy what I call 'foodie' books, books that have food or something food related as a major theme throughout the story. This week I decided to feature two foodie book covers.

Side note: I recently started a Foodie Fans group on Goodreads. If you like foodie books, baking, or cooking then come on over and join up :)



Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts

Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company has been in the Sterling family for generations, ever since Great-Grandma Rose literally dreamed up her first fabulous recipe. But now it looks as if they’re about to lose Sweet Dreams to the bank – and that would be a disaster, not only for the family but for the town of Icicle Falls, Washington. Can Samantha, the oldest daughter and new head of the company, come up with a way to save it? After Samantha does some brainstorming with her mother and sisters, inspiration strikes. They’ll have a chocolate festival! Time’s running out, but the Sterling women are determined and the town’s behind them, so everything’s bound to go smoothly.

Or not. Events seem to be conspiring against Samantha, and her mother’s attempts to help aren’t helping. To make matters worse, the fate of her company is in the hands of her archenemy, Blake Preston, the bank manager with the football-hero good looks. It’s enough to drive her to chocolate. But Blake’s also enough to convince her that (believe it or not) there’s something even better than chocolate.

Vanity Fare by Megan Caldwell

A charming novel about a 40-year-old Brooklyn mother, recently divorced, who starts writing copy for a bakery, discovers a knack for food – related literary puns, and becomes entangled in a love triangle.

Molly Hagan is overwhelmed.

Her husband left her for a younger, blonder woman, her six year-old son is questioning her authority, and now, so is she. In order to pay her Brooklyn rent and keep her son supplied with Pokemon and Legos-not to mention food and clothing-she has to get a job. Fast.

So when an old friend offers Molly a copywriting position at a new bakery, finding romance is just about the last thing on her mind. But the sexy British pastry chef who’s heading up the bakery has other thoughts. And so does Molly when she meets the chef’s intimidating business partner-who also happens to have a secret that might prevent Molly from getting her own Happily Ever After.

Better Than Chocolate - How cute is this cover!? I like how all of the pinks and reds give the cover a warm and fuzzy feel. It also seems like it might be a lighter read. And of course I wish I could sit there drinking a hot cup of coffee while eating heart shaped chocolates!

Vanity Fare - This cover definitely has a different tone to it. It has more of a mature, serious feel to it with the old, worn books. And those cookies sure do look scrumptious!! 

I haven't read either of these to know if the covers speak for the books but I will find out at some point since both are on my to read list!

Life, Love and the Pursuit of Chocolate (Finding Love 2) by Caedem Marquez



Summary from Amazon:

Chocolate shop owner Rachel McDaniel buried herself in her work after the death of her boyfriend. Three years later, she’s not ready to rejoin the world—but the world is more than ready for her. Three men are competing for her, including handsome writer, Daniel Martinez, who rekindles feelings Rachel thought were buried.

Compelling and rugged stranger, Matthew Danforth, hints that all is not well with her love life but won’t tell her more, and Rachel finds herself losing her temper as she tempers her chocolate. Rachel must decide who to give her love to, and in the process, try and find closure and healing. It may come from the most unexpected place.

My Thoughts:

I’m not sure why it took me so long to start the second installment of the Finding Love series but man it’s such a great book! I am just as in love with this one as I was with the first in the series.

Although it’s not quite as evenly distributed as I would like; there is a mixture of light, carefree humor, romance, heartbreak, and heavier, deeper moments. The author definitely knows how to portray emotions in such a way that will have you mooney eyed and grinning at some parts and frowning or teary at others.

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Three Cheers for Chunky and I Hate Cell Phones by Mike Ronny


I am doing two reviews today since these are both novellas. Both of these stories are from author Mike Ronny.

Three Cheers for Chunky

Goodreads Summary:

Chunky plans to spend junior year of high school goofing off with his friends, watching soap operas with his Grandma, and stuffing his face with as much candy as humanly possible. But then, as a joke, a classmate signs him up for the track team. To everyone’s surprise, Chunky accepts this challenge – well, sort of.

My Thoughts:

This is a short story about "Chunky" and the event that changed his life. This is another story that would be good for a lunch hour read as it is only about 13 pages. I liked how "Chunky" looked up to the coach and did as he asked, even though he really didn't want to. Also because of this, and the coach he changes himself.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5



I Hate Cell Phones

Goodreads Summary:

All his life, Rodney “Red” Daley loved building bombs. Now, however, this retired weapons expert is in an assisted living home. Forced to play Bingo and checkers all day, Red attempts a daring escape. It’s no use. But then Red gets his hands on some wires, and a battery, and a timing device….

My Thoughts:

This book is a short story from Red's POV. Red is an elderly man and in the story he ends up going to a nursing home. I really liked reading his thoughts on everything that was going on and his reactions. The story is written just like an elderly man would talk. What I mean is it isn't grammatically correct, but it fits extremely well considering the story. There is a plot twist at the end that had my jaw dropping! I did enjoy this story & I think you will too.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

**I recieved both of these books for review, but that has in no way effected my opinion.**






Ocean Kills By Jade Hart - Review, Author Interview, & Giveaway


Goodreads Summary:

Around the world, murderers and rapists pick off the innocent. Killing loved ones, separating families, and ruining lives.

As an eight-year-old girl, Ocean witnessed her family’s massacre and something altered inside her. Twisting her genetic code… unlocking an ability to teleport.

Ocean Breeze was never destined to be normal, especially having been named after air-freshener. She’s a shadow, a ghost—a dark saviour of the innocent. Armed with a switchblade in her bra, and a box-cutter in her pocket, she hunts the filth of the world.

Callan Bliss is a Sydney police officer whose skill-set is far above that of a normal cop. All his fellow officers see is a hard worker who loves to catch perpetrators and surf, but that’s because they don’t know about his past. When Callan arrests a suspicious-looking prostitute, he comes face-to-face with a self-confessed vigilante, and suddenly, his secrets aren’t so easy to keep silent.

Ocean hates the police with a passion, and has no intention of being held captive by a cop, even if he is sexy as hell. Teleporting from under his nose, Ocean hunts her next target—a man responsible for the largest sex ring in South Africa—and now he’s about to die. But she doesn’t count on Callan giving chase, nor the body-quaking lust that consumes them. However, Ocean's dark hobbies take precedence over what her heart wants—her thirst for murdering is killing her too, and not even Callan can save her.

My Thoughts: 

*I recieved this book for review, but that has in no way effected my opinion.*

I really enjoyed the unique story line of this book. Ocean is a woman that survived a brutal attack that killed her entire family. Now at a cost to herself, she rescues others. I thought the fact that Oceans teleporting had side effects was great! Too often we see heroes/heroines that don't have short comings in their abilities.

I also really enjoyed Jade Harts writing style. The story didn't suck me in as quickly as I thought it would but once it did I was hooked. I am very eager to read the next story about Ocean, I need to know what happens next!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
