Book Lovers Realm ~ 4.5 stars for Soul Reborn

Don’t judge a book by its cover, something magical could be hiding inside!

Google alerts had a great big surprise for me today.  The Book Lovers Realm gave Soul Reborn 4.5 star review.  Keri, the owner of the blog, had great things to say about the story and even shared it with her neighbor.  It’s the little things in life that just rock your socks off 🙂

See what she had to say…  The Book Lovers Realm

5 Star Review of SOUL REBORN


It has been awhile so I had to share. The fabulous Elena over at Samsawesomness has given Soul Reborn a   review.  It made my week.  I would be forever grateful, if you help me spread the word.  Thanks again!  Elena rocks!!

Teaser:  “Talk about a load of Suspense! This novel was quick paced and engaging. Who would’ve known one story could carry so much depth. The paranormal aspect of the story was over the top A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!….”

2012 Author Open Mic

I am trying something a little different for 2012. 

Twice a month I am hosting “Author Open Mic.” The days will spotlight an author, their work or any topic that they want to cover.  It can be off the cuff or customized based on the author’s needs. The goal is to get readers and authors together, throw some questions out there that need to be asked and answered, and most importantly, have fun.  There are no requirements or restrictions.  And yes, this is for mature audiences 😉

If anyone is interested in taking the mic for the day at Wicked Romance to promote their next book, book event, or topic of your choice just drop me an email at murray(dot)jeanm(at)gmail(dot)com

Authors After Dark ~ Author Appearance & Book Signing

Authors After Dark is fast approaching and I’m scrambling to finish up my “grand prize” for the Mythos Ball.  I’m one of the featured authors and will be giving away two author signed copies of Soul Reborn and plus a TREASURE CHEST of Egyptian goodies. And a KINDLE, plus $10 Amazon gift card.  Each participant will receive a key chain purse with a key inside. 

One lucky key will open the chest, but beware of curses. Lilly, my heroine, made that unfortunate mistake.

  • E-Book Authors
  • Light Paranormal
  • Blogger Sleep Over
  • Spontaneously Paranormal
  • Food and Clothing in Romance

Although the registration is closed for AAD, the BOOK SIGNING IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, so if you are in the Philly area stop by the Doubletree Hotel at Center City, August 13th from 2-4pm.  Look for me at the Crescent Moon Press Table.

Soul Reborn ~ 5/5 STAR review, “a fresh take on the paranormal…”

Bakin Goddess Blog Site

I woke up to a wonderful review today at the Reading with the Bakin Goddess Blog Site

5 out of 5 STAR rating.  I was ecstatic.  Yes, the 5 rating is fabulous, but I think what reviewers say is even more important. 

Excerpt from Ms. Flood’s review:  “If you haven’t read her book yet. Get in your car (don’t drive? Get on your bike, hail a taxi, walk, run but just get there) and drive to your nearest book store — I guess getting online and getting the e-book would be great too!!! HA! Anyway, I have reviewed the book and I cannot say enough positive things about this book! It completely blew me away! I LOVED it!…”   READ MORE HERE.  

Ms. Flood is the owner of the Reading with the Bakin Goddess Blog Site.  She has a beautiful site that is a nice mix of two pleasures: cooking/food and good books.  We crossed paths during one of my blog giveaways and won a copy of Soul Reborn.  And soon following, I was one of her first author interviews. Needless to say she is a fabulous person and made it quite clear to me that if she holds her STARS very tightly.  I feel very honored to have earned 5 of them.  Thanks, Kimberly.  Follow her HERE.  Let’s see if we can get her to 200 followers.
