Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

And will they even be to…

On Earth, seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander was taught to never peek, but if she hopes to survive life on her new planet, Loge, her eyes must never shut. Because Zeus will do anything to save the Ancients from their dying planet, and he has a plan.

Thousands of humans crossed over to Loge after a poisonous neurotoxin released into Earth's atmosphere, nearly killing them. They sought refuge in hopes of finding a new life, but what they became were slaves, built to wage war against their home planet. That is, unless Ari and Jackson can stop them. But on Loge, nothing is as it seems...and no one can be trusted.

Authors Are Rockstars Tour: Myra McEntire

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes!

When I found out I would be hosting Myra McEntire, 
I had my own little dance party...

I threw my hands in the air.

Did a little box step.

And then I checked myself before I wrecked myself.
Three Reasons Myra McEntire is a Rock Star:

1) She's written a fantastic time travel trilogy - Hourglass,Timepiece and Infinityglass -
with swoony boys and lots of kissing. Obviously, she has her prioriteis straight.
2) She's easily relateable, openly sharing about her battle with depression.  3) If you stalk follow her anywhere on the interwebs, then you know that's she's entertaining. 
4) Kaleb (I know I said, "three", but I do what I want.)

I've yet to meet Myra in person, but it will happen one day (*crosses fingers*) and when it does, there will be much fangirling on my part!

Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadl…
