Ringing in the New Year!

The Year In Review

Looking back in 2014 it was the year of marketing. I took a major step in promoting Angelic Confessions more. Angelic Confessions had its very first book blitz that went really well. I met some new amazing indie authors like myself.  I even got a boost in sales!

An Exciting 2015

It's a new year so I thought I start a new writing genre BOOK REVIEWS! I normally write reviews for clients anyway so I decided to make it my Nitch. The THING I do. I write reviews. I write them well. It is what I am good at. With that said I opened up Entertainment Review Freelancing Services!

Entertainment Review is a freelancing website for those looking for Reviews. I specialize in different types of reviews not just book reviews too. I even will accept special requests. For example one company asked me to ghost write a book for them.Working with the indie world I make my prices extremely affordable to help struggling authors.

My History in Freelancing

In 2015 I am hoping to have some success in this. I need to work, but working the mundane is just now working with my body. I sit here writing this even with an ice pack on right shoulder blade. All I did was taken out the garbage. I confess I never really put that much stock in my freelancing. I did it sporadically. There were times where I was getting steady work. Still I didn't have the faith in it. That I could do it. That I could do more. I also was all over the place. I wrote on many topics not having a nitch. I even wrote an article on finding your nitch! I never really had one. Not until now.

Angelic Confessions Book 2

Of course in 2015 I will be working on Book 2 of Angelic Confessions hoping for a October 2015 release date!

Book Blitz Hit!: DKC Fantasty Publishing Review


 I would like to give a BIG thanks to Dragon Knight Chronicles Fantasy Publishing for hosting my book blitz. I would also like to thank all the bloggers too who volunteered to participate and read my book.

 About DKC Fantasy Publishing

I discovered DKC via a post from another author on LinkedIn who mentioned their book promotion services. I decided to check them out, and ended up ordering a book review, character interview, and author interview wrapping it all up in having a Book Blitz!  Working with them was a surprisingly fun experience. They are a real talented group tending to their clients needs in a warm and friendly matter. I can not say enough at how great it was to work with them. They deliver you prompt updates on the progression leading up to your big Blitz or Blog Tour day. They explain everything to you detailed in a friendly and professional manner. They really understand what authors need, as well as what they are looking for.


I found their prices to be reasonable. Affordable even for a single indie mom writer like me.

Other Services

 DKC Fantasy is not just about book promotions. They offer other services too, such as editing, and
 book cover design. (I just might use them for Book 2!)

Overall Thoughts

To all soon to be published authors I highly recommend  DKC Fantasy Publishing for your promotional needs.You will not be disappointed in the promotion, and treatment  they give you.

Angelic Confession Blitz Tour: Angelic Confessions:REVIEW


Angelic Confessions Book Review
By Kathryn Jenkins

"In a world where the Father created all I was angel. A new breed it was meant to overthrow the children of heaven. To prevent this I was taken, and raised as Father's own. my memories wiped, the killer beast inside me caged. Memories never stay buried though...and love could threaten us all."

Jan Marie takes our breath away with her first novella Angelic Confessions. Marie shows us a new insight into the realm of angels. The love affair that grows between the two main characters Pio and Aye is a wild ride that carries you throughout the story.

Aye is a creature that will change the fate of the angels forever. She will bring down Father and heaven itself. Where an innocent child should be kept safe, Father puts her future into the hands of the one man that will bring her own undoing. The love of a man cannot only destroy the innocence but may bring the world as they know it to an end.

Angelic Confessions is, in its own right, a story that takes your breath away. Never before has an author used a writing style that compliments the mindset of an angel. Marie created a beautiful writing style all her own featured throughout her novella.

The story grabbed me right from the start and I couldn’t put it down until I finished reading the entire novella. While it’s not a story that I would normally read, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story, and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

5/5 stars (You blew my mind away)

Greed (Sins of the Fallen Series) Book Review

I believe in Authors helping Authors.
I have been privileged to review Greed book 2 in the Sins of the Fallen series by Karina Espinosa for YAReads Blog Tours!


“Maximillion can never return to the normal life he once had—not now that he’s Wrath—one of the seven Nephilim. After the failed battle with Abbadon and his demons, the death of a loved one, and the betrayal of the person he trusted the most—Max was forced to go into hiding. But not before devising a plan to look for answers: to search for the other Nephilim.

Max and his best friend/guardian angel, Jones are on the run for a month before their first clue leads them to Sin City, Las Vegas to find the Nephilim of Greed. But Nikolai’s reluctance to help and fear of an unknown force leaves Max with more questions than answers.

Will he discover who is hunting the Nephilim? And if he does, can he overcome the forces of evil against them?

Find out in the sequel to Sins of the Fallen, where Karina Espinosa pulls readers back to the saga unfolding in the world of angels and demons—a world where everything falls part.”

Greed picks up right after the end of Sins of the Fallen, with the lead character Max and his buddy guardian angel Jones on the run after tragedy has stuck. If you have not read the first book I will just sum it up with Max discovers he is the Nephilim Wrath with a very special power that makes him a wanted boy by the angels who are not so surprisingly angelic to fulfill a prophecy.

So back to Greed. In Greed Max and his guardian are on the run after a major event that ended in Sins of the Fallen. Max is also going through some major changes that brings them to discovering other Nephilim, namely the Nephilim Greed. They decide to go find him in hopes for answers. What they get is attacked by Abbadon and his demons, which leads to an unsteady alliance with Greed. Can they really trust him though?

My Thoughts

Greed is as ever as engrossing as the first book. Just as I say to myself, “After this chapter I am going to bed.” I find myself reading one more chapter. Espinosa takes you on an engrossing trip with characters that are fun, witty, and make you feel for them. The only down side I would say is that it was not a challenging read. With it being only 274 pages long I read the book rather quickly. It ended too soon.
