Goddess Fish Promotions VBB: The Power of Prayer by Lorana Hoopes

Goddess Fish Promotions VBB: The Power of Prayer by Lorana Hoopes

Excerpt: What does he mean he can’t marry me? This had to be some kind of joke. My shoulders slumped forward and my knuckles holding the phone turned white. “That’s it? That’s all? What does this mean? What am I supposed to tell everyone out there?” There were nearly two hundred people waiting in the sanctuary. Shaina lowered her head, unable to meet my eyes and bit her lip again. My eyes narrowed to slits as I crossed the room and grabbed Shaina’s arm, eliciting a yelp of either surprise or pain. I didn’t know which, and at that moment, I didn’t care. “What aren’t you telling me?” Her eyes narrowed to slits. “There’s someone else, isn’t there? Who is it? If you know Shaina, you have to tell me.” When Shaina lifted her head, tears glistened in her eyes. “I’m so sorry, Callie.” I dropped my arm and stared at Shaina. My mouth hung open like a barn door as I tried to understand what she was saying. She’s sorry? What does she have to be sorry for? It’s not like her fiancé left her. It’s not like—Anger flared up in me as the realization set in. The world… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT + Interview: Lake Of Sins: Hangman’s Army by L. S. O’Dea

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT + Interview: Lake Of Sins: Hangman’s Army by L. S. O’Dea

Excerpt: Hugh Trinity didn’t reply, but her back was straighter than before.  He was getting on her nerves.  Good because she sure got on his.  She was nothing but trouble, an attractive know-it-all who refused to listen to anyone.  His hand met the end of the rope.  It was still a long way to the ground.   Jackson waited alongside the building with Tim.  They were both flat against the wall, trying not to be seen.   “Drop.  You’ll be fine.”  Her voice was soft, no longer acidic and mocking. He couldn’t deal with her being kind to him.  They’d done so well bickering.  The trip had been fast and he hadn’t thought much about the danger.  “I’m an Almighty.  My kind doesn’t always land on their feet.”   “Let go,” she said, a hint of anger in her voice. “I will.”  His hands tightened on the rope.  A fall like this could break something.   “Now,” she snapped.  “Or I’ll kick you in the face and say a prayer that you land on your head.” Her foot waved above his head.  He wouldn’t put it past her to do what she threatened.  She’d probably enjoy it.  He closed his… Read more »

Title: THE SPIRIT OF LOVE Author: the spirit of love, known as glen Publisher: Aurora House Pages: 196 Genre: Spirituality/Poetry The Spirit of Love is a collection of short writings, poems and phrases written by a man who took himself into some of the darkest and most destructive depths that one can go with drug and alcohol addictions back in his early twenties.

With the love, support and guidance of his dear friend Edwina, in helping to bring these writings from the handwritten scribbles on paper to how they are presented today, The Spirit of Love is a reminder that no matter how dark, desperate, alone, helpless or trapped one believes they may be, the sheer beauty of the perfection of life in its totality is silently and patiently living within us all, and its love is so powerful that it can heal anything that has come to pass.

It’s all about the chemistry.   ROMANCING DR. LOVE Sterling University #1 Rebecca Heflin Releasing March 7th, 2017 Dr. Samantha Love says it’s all about the chemistry. A brainy psychology professor and researcher, Sam has based her entire academic career on the theory that what we call love is simply a chemical reaction. She is currently running a study to prove that her compatibility blood test reveals perfect matches—sort of like an organ donor, but for relationships. No romance required.   Along comes sexy literature professor, Dr. Ethan Quinn, who says it’s all about the romance. He thinks the pretty psychology professor has taken love and all its mysteries and reduced it to something as romantic as a cholesterol test, and he sets out to prove her theory wrong. When Ethan signs up for her study, Sam discovers to her horror, that according to her compatibility test, they are a perfect match. Sam faces an existential crisis over her career and her research. If she believes in her science, shouldn’t it follow that she believes Ethan is her perfect mate? And if she doesn’t believe he’s her perfect mate, doesn’t that bring into question her research? Her compatibility test? Her… Read more »
