Cover Reveal: Kissing Frogs by Alisha Sevicny

Kissing Frogs

by Alisha
Release Date: 11/18/14

Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:

Popular party girl and
high school senior Jessica Scott has a secret: she used to be a nerd — a big
one; a goody two-shoes, grade-skipping, all-state spelling bee champ. But she
lost the braces, put on some contacts, and applied all her academic genius to
studying and imitating the social elite. Now she rules the school from the
upper echelon of the high school realm. With her cool new friends and hottest-guy-in-school
boyfriend, life’s a beach — and that’s where she’s headed for Spring Break.
That is, until her teacher breaks the bad news that she’s failing Biology — and
her only chance to make up the grade is to throw away the culminating trip of her
hard-earned popularity and join the Conservation Club in Panama to save the
Golden Frog.

Unable to let go of her faded college dreams, Jess finds herself in a foreign

country with a new social crew, and one handsome face that stands out as a
blast from the past, threatening to ruin her queen bee reputation. Travis
Henley may have grown up, but he still likes to play childish games and as
payment for retrieving Jess’ lost ring from the bottom of a jungle pool, he
wants three dates. While Jess does battle with spiders, snakes, wildfires and
smart mean girls, she desperately tries to hang on to the last vestiges of her
popular existence like the Golden Frog from its webbed toe. But as she starts
to care about something more than tanning and texting – a species on the verge
of disappearing forever – she may realize the worth of her inner nerd, and the
one frog in particular that could be her prince in disguise.

Set in the lush and tropical El Valle de Anton, this modern fairytale
re-imagining of “The Frog Prince” is toe-curling contemporary romance with an
environmentalist heartbeat, in the tradition of Stephanie Perkins.

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…
