Description

No one believed 17-year-old Lorna Stanton when she warned them the zombie apocalypse would come. Zombies weren’t real, they told her, and they locked her away. But now she’s right, and they’re gone. It’s a fight for survival, and Lorna and her boyfriend, Jeff, have been training for this for years. 

The world as she knew it is a thing of the past, but Lorna’s prepared. Now all she’s learned, all she taught herself, is put to the test. In a bid for survival, it’s not only the undead who are a danger… and trusting the wrong person could be the last choice she’ll ever make.

Each installment features a different main character, and each will pick up at the beginning of the apocalypse. So grab your copy today, and make sure you share with your zombie-loving friends as well!

Feeding the Amazon Addiction

Hi, my name is Kay, and I’m an Amazon one-click addict. And I’m glad to know I’m not alone! If you’re reading this blog post, chances are you are, too. Now, there’s tons of free books available daily, and I couldn’t even begin to list them all. I have a Kindle that’s full to bursting, and I have the Kindle app installed on my phone, tablet, and laptop. Needless to say, reading is a beloved hobby of mine. 

But books aren’t my only passion. I enjoy online shopping. There’s lots of things cheaper online, as I’m sure many of you know. And with my health, I don’t particularly care to be outside my home if I can avoid it, especially as shopping can be draining. (For more on my health, check out a previous blog post:  https://kayglassauthor.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/a-peek-into-pain) Amazon gets costly, however, and I’m always seeking better ways to spend my money… or even better, earn gift cards! So here are some tips I’ve accumulated on earning Amazon gift cards! 

1- MyPoints: One of my favorite websites, MyPoints is a way to earn points by shopping, reading emails, and taking the occasional survey. I have the MyPoints toolbar installed, so if I go to a website to make a purchase and they are a MyPoints site, a reminder pops up so I never miss an opportunity to earn points. Some of their sites include Walmart, Avon, and Julep, but there are hundreds. Want to sign up? https://www.facebook.com/authorkayglass/posts/539519256168171?stream_ref=10

2- mPoints: Same idea as MyPoints, but mPoints are mobile apps. Again, these are apps I use on my cell phone as well as my tablet. There are a bunch of mPoints apps being added all the time. The quickest way to find them? Go to your store for app downloads and type mPoints into the search bar. Some of my favorites are Nexercise (a motion-tracking app that helps with fitness), Office Zombie, MovieFone, Scramble With Friends, and the Weather Channel app. There are many others available, and there should be something that meets your needs. You can earn up to 1000 points a day, which is easy if you have enough apps that you play when the mood strikes. 25,000 points earns a $10 Amazon gift card! 

3- Crowdtap: Crowdtap is a website where you answer survey questions to be entered in sweepstakes to win gift cards. Last month I won $15 in Amazon gift cards, the month before I won $5 for Amazon, $10 for Walmart, and $10 for Sephora, and the month before that? $30 in Amazon gift cards. Just answer a few questions here and there when you find the time, and voila! It’s that easy! If you’ve won anything that month, they’ll send you an email on the 3rd of 4th of the following month. Win for April? Get your gift cards before May 5th. See? Easy! And even better? Sometimes they do sample and share, so you’ll get free products, too! http://www.crowdtap.com 

4- This one is rather unrelated, but it’s a way to earn MyPoints, which again can be redeemed for gift cards. BzzAgent is a site where you answer survey questions and they match you with companies. Those companies will send you free merchandise in exchange for an honest review. Some recent companies I’ve been matched with? Dr. Scholl’s insoles, Quaker Oats Warm & Crunchy Granola, and Starbucks Coffee. To sign up, just go to http://www.bzzagent.com 

 

I hope these sites help you as much as they helped me! And if you have any suggestions or any comments, please feel free to leave them on this post!

BOOK REVIEW: Marked (Hunter Awakened) by Felicity Hunt

Marked (Hunter Awakened) by Felicity Hunt

Description: 

Twenty-one year-old Teal Rhines is a one-time child star turned Hollywood darling. She’s loved by the public and media alike for her tenacity and strength. Orphaned and abandoned as a baby, emancipated at sixteen, she is a role model to many. Now, as her new television show is taking off, her future looks bright. 

But when her new bodyguard, the attractive Elias Bane, shows interest in her, she never dreams that he is a part of the same supernatural world that her mother fled. The mother she never knew. Like many adopted children, Teal Rhines has always wondered about her biological parents. Who they were. Why they’d abandoned her. In all of her imaginings, she’s never gotten close to the truth. 

But when the truth is revealed, loyalties are tested. Love is put on trial. And danger is closer than she realizes.

Review

I picked up Marked for free in the Kindle store, and I finally had the chance to read it. The story did hook me from the beginning, as I wanted to know more about this feisty main character who defends herself and stands up for the innocent. I enjoyed her interactions at the party, and the firing of her bodyguard. Teal is a good, strong female lead, and I loved that about her.

Unfortunately, the book contains a great deal of typos that made it difficult to get into, especially as a lot of them were in the first few chapters. I love a good romance, and I love sexy scenes, but there seemed to be entirely too many of them, considering that the vast majority of them were dream sequences. They were hot, they were well-written, but they took up entirely too much of the book and I ended up skipping a lot of those scenes just to get back to the story.

The whole book was written to seem like a suspenseful romance, and I was hooked- until the ending. All of a sudden the book became a paranormal romance, and although I enjoy those, I felt that the paranormal elements should have come into play much earlier. The late introduction of the paranormal element made the contrast jarring and out of place.

I did enjoy this book, even with the things I’ve mentioned above, and I really enjoyed this author’s writing style. I would be interested in reading more of her work, and I may even pick up the rest of the series as I really want to know how the paranormal element will change the main character. I give this book 3.5/5 stars, and I do recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance, adult content, paranormal elements, and a strong female lead.

NOTE: This book is currently FREE on Amazon if you’re interested in picking up a copy.

I’ve reenrolled in the KDP Select program, so Love Bite once again takes a turn at free! I’m excited to be able to offer the beginning of my Just One Bite series as free. Since i’m hard at work on the third book in the series, it’s delightful to be able to share the book that started it all.

Diandra Malone is 28 years old, pregnant, and newly widowed. Lizbeth Snyder is a former cop with a chip on her shoulder. Against all odds they fall in love and life is good… Until the bite. Now Diandra is a vampire, and a new mom to boot! Together she and Lizbeth will uncover a secret Diandra’s husband never wanted revealed, raise a very special baby, and come to grips with a life that changed with just one bite.

Download your free copy on Monday, 6/4, and tell a friend. I hope you fall for the characters.

Free Erotica- 5/24

Calling all adults….

5/24 Sub and Switch, a short erotic story written under my other pen name, Kendra Glenn, goes free for the day!

One reviewer says, “This is not a novel – just a couple of fun scenes, perfect for getting your motor running, so to speak. It is a short about a couple going through a common issue. They are in love but bored. It is easier for Lena to rub one out rather than have a real sex life with her husband. When her husband finds what her erotica of choice is, she thinks her marriage may be over. To her surprise, he is game. Together they explore her secret desire to be dominated. And what an EXCELLENT name for a dom – Neil! As in kneel before me.”

Another reviewer writes, “Sub and Switch is one seriously steamy story. If you’d like to take a peak into one couple’s experiment with kinky sex play, this is your answer. Kendra Glenn does a wonderful job describing their fun. In fact, you just might feel like you played along too!”

Lena Caruso is bored with married life. The dominant one in the bedroom, she longs for her husband to take control just once. She starts wandering the webpages, reading about men who like to dominate and fantasizing that her husband was one of them.

Neil Caruso loves giving up control to his wife, but he’ll do anything to get her interest back. When he snoops through her laptop and finds her reading material, he decides to take matters into his own hands.

Sound interesting? Download your copy tomorrow, 5/24, and leave a review when complete if you like!
