Secret Cravings Publishing Blog Hop August 24th - 25th

Welcome to Secret Cravings Publishing Blog Hop.  It's closing in the end of the summer.  The kids will be back in school, now it is mom's turn to buy something for herself.  Back in the day, when my kids were home during the summer, I never had a chance to curl up with a book.  By ten o'clock, I was dead to the world.  These days, if I'm not writing a love story, I am reading one.

The summer is my favorite time of the year.  I love sitting on the beach writing and reading.  Last summer I edited Mystical Wonders - Circle of Friends and Second Chances.  This summer I got a late start because of Hurricane Sandy.  But I was able to write and do edits on book 4 - Survival.

Next months, the third in the series - The Right Call Will be released.  Circle of Friends and Second Chances are both available electronically.  Circle of Friends is now available in paperback if you don't have a kindle, nook or like to read via a PDF file.

                Blurb Mystical Wonders - Circle of Friends

     Madison Morina, college professor, meets Sal at the college’s pep rally.  They hit it off, but Madison still has her doubts regarding their relationship.
     Shari Stafford, a clairvoyant, hairdresser, finds love when she hires a carpenter to do renovations on her house. She has a special gift of reading minds.
     Private Investigator Cassie Scott has an on and off relationship with Dennis.  When family secrets are revealed, her life is changed forever.
     Bad boy Angelo Esposito sweeps Fay Odina off her feet.  He has a dead wife and an ex-wife, along with a secret past and an agenda. Angelo finds his perfect mark in Fay, who owns the family Vintage Clothing Shop.
     Despite her friends’ warnings that she is in imminent danger, she runs off and marries Angelo.   It’s up to the girls to juggle their own relationships and dig deeper into Angelo’s past.  
Four friends, four lives intertwined together. 

Blurb Mystical Wonders - Second Changes 

     Madison, Shari and Cassie play a major role in protecting Fay, while digging into Angelo’s past.  Shari still can’t channel into Angelo’s mind, leading the women to believe he has something to hide.
     A reunion with an old love puts Madison’s relationship with Sal to the test, causing her to reevaluate her life.  While family secrets continue to be exposed, Cassie’s life spirals out of control. Both women will be forced to make life changing decisions.
     Having gained Fay’s trust, Angelo is ready to move forward with his plan no matter what the consequences.
     Cassie seeks Shari’s help on a case.  While they uncover pieces of the puzzle, they get closer to the truth about Angelo’s past. Madison, Shari and Cassie come together, racing against time, to save Fay from a disastrous fate.

     Four friends, four lives intertwined together, setting the stage for second chances. 

 My favorite thing to do in the summer is to sit on the beach (with sunscreen) and enjoy the beauty nature has to offer us.

 Tell me what your favorite thing to do during summer is and leave me your email address to be entered to win a copy of Book 1 - Circle of Friends.  I will be giving away to copies.




  1. I love swimming and camping.My girlfriend took me camping in July for my birthday.And this last year has been so stressful for me.So going camping was like heaven to me.No noise,just quiet and nature.I really had fun feeding the squirrels.

  2. I live in the American South. My favorite thing to do in the summer is sit inside in the air conditioning--away from the heat, humidity, mosquitoes, and tourists! I sometimes enjoy hitting the local farmer's markets to get the freshest tastes of summer.
