Jaguar book3 Uncanney Valley Series by C.A Gray









C.A. Gray is the author of the YA Fantasy PIERCING THE VEIL trilogy, as well as the YA Dystopian trilogy, THE LIBERTY BOX. By day, she is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD), with a primary care practice in Tucson, AZ. Additionally, she writes medical books under her real name.

Her favorite authors include J.K. Rowling and Suzanne Collins, and she also reads an exceptional amount of non-fiction. She is blessed with exceptionally supportive family and friends, and thanks God for them every single day!













Synopsis:

Sometimes the person you lie to the most is yourself.

The Silver Six have blown the Renegades’ underground compound to bits, killing several of Rebecca’s best friends in the process—and to her horror, the boy Rebecca had convinced herself she loved for all these years was the one to betray them all. At the same time, General Specs, the company Liam was once slated to inherit, has developed a superintelligent robot called Jaguar which is quickly becoming godlike in her omniscience. As the remaining Renegades flee to their last bastion of safety in the Caribbean, Liam makes his way back to London, in a last ditch effort to convince his father to destroy Jaguar before it’s too late.

Rebecca, meanwhile, finally understands her own heart: she never loved Andy. He was merely a ‘safe’ choice who would never require anything of her. Liam, on the other hand, exasperating as he was, had seen past her defenses. All of his teasing and provoking had been his attempt to get her to be real with him—but the more he made her feel, the further she had retreated. She had even substituted her companion bot Madeline for real, deep human friendships, and for the same reason: she’d been avoiding love to protect herself from another loss like the one she had experienced when her father was killed for the Renegades’ cause. Ironically, she only realizes this once Liam is on his way to a similar fate.  But she’ll be damned if she lets him go without a fight.

This high stakes conclusion to the Uncanny Valley Trilogy envisions a world not too far off from our own, in which superintelligence is a reality, humanoid bots have supplanted human power and influence, and there are eyes watching and reporting our every move. If humanity is to survive, the Renegades will have to galvanize support across the globe, under the radar—and it will require every last bit of ingenuity they possess. But is attempting to outwit a superintelligent being really the answer? Or will it require something much more fundamentally human?


And now for the Cover

Let's take a look inside the book with a Snippet:

“He can’t help us!” I shouted to Rick, “He’s unconscious!” 
With one glance back at the hovercraft, Rick tossed the hammer back inside and barked at Francis, “Cover us!” 
“What do you think I’m doing?” Francis yelled back. 
I realized Rick must have sliced open his hand on the jagged glass when he scooped Liam up over one shoulder, leaving trails of blood on his hospital gown. Rick scrambled back to the window, just as the chair in the doorframe slid all the way loose. 
“Closer!” Francis shouted to the hovercraft pilot bot. The hovercraft scraped the ledge now, but it was enough for Rick to leap up to the ledge and haul Liam’s shoulders aboard. I grabbed his legs, held them up, and shoved. 
“Stop!” called the bots in the doorframe. Francis opened fire, and I could hear the bullets glancing off the bots’ metallic bodies. You have to shoot them in the eyes! I thought frantically. The humanoid bots behind us fired bullets out of their wrists. Searing pain shot through my shoulder, just as a strong arm locked around my waist. Francis gave a cry, and just before I collapsed on top of Liam’s limp form, I saw the blossom of blood spreading across the side of Francis’s t-shirt. His face went white, and he let out a gurgle. 
No, I thought, just as Rick shouted at the pilot bot, “Go go go!” Then we rocketed up, leaving my stomach on the ground below.

The Holistic Gut Perscription by Author Lauren Deville NMD





The Holistic Gut Prescription is designed to be a simple guide to healing the gut, based on the following premise: if people give the body what it needs to heal itself and remove the obstacles to its cure, then within reason, healing will follow. 

Nature Cure is not easy to employ, but it is usually easy to understand. There are only so many building blocks, and there are only so many possible obstacles to cure. The physician’s job is not to “make someone well,” but rather to facilitate the process of healing. 

In this guide, Dr. Lauren helps readers recognize which obstacles to a healthy gut they face, how to remove them, and how to supply the specific building blocks they lack so that they can create their own personal path to optimal digestive wellness.

Review:
“The Holistic Gut Prescription is the most thorough guide to intestinal wellness I’ve seen to date. Readers can learn detailed programs to reverse leaky gut, chronic infections, candida and chronic inflammation. The book also gives deep perspective on how multifaceted the connections between gut health, lifestyle, and mindset are. Highly recommended.”Alan Christianson, NMD, New York Times bestselling author of The Adrenal Reset Diet













Dr. Lauren Deville is board-certified to practice medicine in the State of Arizona. She received her NMD from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ, and she holds a BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics from the University of Arizona, with minors in Spanish and Creative Writing. 

She also loves yoga, piano, and good audiobooks. She writes fiction under a pen name in her spare time.
















Snippet


This is the beauty of the naturopathic philosophy: our bodies are designed to heal themselves. If you give your body what it needs to heal and remove the obstacles to cure, health will generally follow. How simple or how complicated the interpretation of this principle becomes in a given case depends on a couple of main variables:


1) How many obstacles to cure are present,

2) How many building blocks are missing,

3) How long you’ve been in the present condition, and/or

4) How willing you are to make the necessary changes.

Nissa (The Widows of Wildcat Ridge Series) by Author Zina Abbott






My name is Robyn Echols. Zina Abbott is the pen I use for my historical novels. I’m a member of Women Writing the West and Western Writers of America. I currently live with my husband in California’s central valley near the “Gateway to Yosemite.”


I love to read, quilt, work with digital images on my photo editing program, and work on my own family history.


I am a blogger. In addition to my own blog, I blog for several group blogs including the Sweet Americana Sweethearts blog, which I started and administer.





A widow with two small children, Nissa Stillwell was forced out of the mining supervisor's house after her husband died in the mine disaster in Wildcat Ridge, Utah. She quickly learns before his death, he went heavily into debt. She leaves what few possessions remain behind and contracts with the Ridge Hotel to do their laundry and live in the laundry shed and drying yard next to the hotel. She is able to make ends meet—barely.

          Being left with only the furnishings and personal items that make up James Stillwell’s estate, Mortimer Crane goes after Nissa to pay the balance owed. She refuses, but he insists she work off the debt in his Gentlemen Only Salon.

          Rancher Dallin Walsh has been too busy building up his spread in the isolated mountains of western Colorado to look for a wife. He comes to Wildcat Ridge for a big horse auction. Between Crane and three drifters, he comes to Nissa’s defense more than once. Desperate to leave Wildcat Ridge, Nissa asks him to hire her as a housekeeper. Does Dallin want a housekeeper—or does he have something else in mind?

          Hal and Buck, two wranglers who work for Dallin, soon find most women in town are as eager to find husbands to move to Wildcat Ridge so they can keep their homes as they are to sell horses. A woman in difficulty captures Hal’s attention. Another woman finds Buck, but he definitely is not interested in a wife.

          Who will go to Colorado, and who will stay in Wildcat Ridge?



Snippet:

Curious, Buck turned to his partner. “So, where you end up eating supper last night? Felt a little strange, me sitting there at a table all by myself with Boss and that laundress woman and her youngsters. Felt like I was butting in where I wasn’t wanted.”
          Hal looked forward as they walked. When he finally answered, he refused to look at Buck. “Nowhere special. There’s other places in town offering meals for sale—widows looking to make a little extra money while we all are in town for the auction. I’m sure Boss didn’t mind you being there, or he would have told you to eat somewhere else or at a different time.” Hal turned to Buck and shrugged. “Maybe he wanted you there so folks don’t get the wrong idea about him and that laundress.”
          Buck did not know about other folks, but he figured he understood the right idea about Boss and the laundress. Boss was sweet on the woman. He even liked both her children. But, if Hal refused to share information, so would he.

Monster Mash Countdown Blitz Day 12 Beauty and the Horseman's Head by Holly Kelly






I'm a mom who writes books in her spare time: translation--I hide in the bathroom with my laptop and lock the door while the kids destroy the house and smear peanut butter on the walls. I was born in Utah but lived in Kansas until I was 13, in Texas until I was 18, and attended college in Hawaii—studying marine biology. I'm now back in Utah--"happy valley". I'm married to a wonderful husband, James, and we are currently raising 6 rambunctious children. My interests are reading, writing (of course), martial arts, visual arts, creating Halloween props, and spending time with family.

I signed with Clean Teen Publishing in 2013. My first published book Rising, quickly hit the best-seller lists and has maintained its status on those lists since it's release in September 2013. The sequel in The Rising Series titled, Descending, was released in late March 2014. It also hit best-seller status--reaching all the way to #1 in Mythology on Amazon.

It's 1792 and Hope is on the run. She finds shelter in a glen called Sleepy Hollow. Luck is with her as the town is unexpectedly looking for a new teacher and Hope is hired for the job. 

Unfortunately, not everything is looking up for her. Not only is the mayor out to get her fired and the local witch determined to slice her up and brew her organs into potions, but hidden under the floorboards of her quaint little cabin, she finds a man. His name is Conall.



Conall is demanding, he's ornery, and though he has undeniably handsome features, he is missing something of vital importance...

His body.

Monster Mash Countdown Blitz Day 11 When Stars Come Out by Scarlett St. Clair








Scarlett St. Clair lives in Oklahoma with her husband. She has a Master’s degree in Library Science and Information Studies and spends a lot of time researching reincarnation, unsolved murders and Greek mythology–all of which made it into her debut novel, When Stars Come Out (Oct 2018).




























Anora Silby can see the dead and turn spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.



As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate ends up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s mistrust, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth--and they want Anora and her powers for themselves. 





Top Ten List:

1.     Pugs – PUG EVERYTHING!
I have obsession with pugs. I love them and everyone knows it, so everyone buys me pug things. I have so many pug artifacts, my desk at work is COVERED. I love them all. Here are a few gems:

 (Yes, those are pugs painted on a rock, and that is also a knitted pug).





   2.     Wine + Pride and Prejudice Nights
My friend and I like to unwind at the end of a long week by having a glass of wine and watching our favorite Pride and Prejudice movies. Yes, we love the 1995 version and the 2005 version!


3.     Stars
I’m from a small town in Oklahoma. When I moved to the city, I mourned the loss of star-filled skies. Nothing is as beautiful as a night sky in the middle of the country.


   4.     Books (duh)
I love books, obvs. My favorite books of all time are the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Below I showcase my collection of LotR. My husband proposed to me with the copy on the right (he had the ring hidden inside) and said, “This book changed your life once, and now it will change your life again.” *faints* The middle set was a gift for our first anniversary. The trilogy on the left was the first LotR copy I was given by my parents.


5.     Purple Hair
I’m a little obsessed with purple hair. I’ve had almost every shade you can imagine and placed in my hair in about every way you can—all over, low lights and highlights. I’m about to do it again, too!


   6.     Traveling
I love to travel. I have been to Ireland, Peru, Italy, London and Paris. Next year, we’re heading to Greece!






7.     Pretty Jewelry
I love pretty jewelry—who doesn’t, right? Here are some gems I recently acquired:



   8.     My writing space
I’ve spent a long time making my writing space cozy so I can focus! It’s one of my favorite places in the house:




9.     Coffee + Sweets
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I love coffee + sweets!  The coffee in the left corner is some sort of sweet potato thing that tastes delicious. I was skeptical at first, but it was a great rec from the barista! The gorgeous cake on the right was made by my friend (who also joins me for Pride and Prejudice and Wine Nights) for mine and my husband’s first anniversary cause she’s the best! Those delicious macaroons are from Whole Foods and I’m obsessed.

  
  10.Llamas
I do love me some llamas. I think it started on my trip to Peru with my husband. We bought this fuzzy little llama (pictured below). He started an Instagram account @llamawithwanderlust and we take him on all our trips. It’s pretty hilarious!


Alright, those are some top 10 favorite things! Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed the pics!
Love,



Scarlett
