Secrets never stay hidden, do they?
They have a way of creeping into your life when you least expect them.

Samuel Delaney never expected his secret, his past, his mother to destroy the man he had fought hard to become.
But when a white envelope with an Irish stamp, containing a letter handwritten in black ink, arrived on a Wednesday morning, it changed everything, risking the most important thing in his life – Faye, his soul mate for the past ten years.

Samuel had boarded a plane thirteen years ago without looking back. Now, he had no choice but to return and bury his past before it ruined his future. But he didn’t expect the secrets to run deeper, down to a rotten root.

Will the discovery of the hidden secrets change him when Samuel doesn’t want to be changed?

Quotes

“Secrets and lies Samuel, we all have them, some are bigger than others but most we take to our grave.”
 
“I swear to god if you look at that door again I’ll bang your head off the bar counter, Sam.” Kirk shouted at him above the Sunday night local band that asked to play for free for advertisement.
“Will you call her and straighten out your shit.”
“What the fuck you on about?” Cocking his head back while pulling a fresh pint.

“Shit man, Faye! I think I prefer you passed out on the bed than being…. distant.”
“Fuck Kirk, I didn’t know you turned into a girl. That’s emotional shit you said then, do you have your period too?”
 
 
“What is an ideal upbringing now days? Crikey Sam this world is so fucked up on so many different levels that no one knows what is normal anymore. What is wrong for some is right for others. That, I guess, is what makes the world amazing and terrifying at the same time.”

One of my sons asked for a new watch for his birthday. We have been looking around for one he likes and as soon as he saw this one he was in love.

The watch came quickly and was very well packaged. It comes in a nice box that is perfect if you are giving it as a gift and need to wrap it.

IMG_8278

While it is simple looking it is also a bit unique. The watch itself is slightly thicker than normal. Very well made, the leather strap looks and feels nice. The watch has a good weight to it, not too heavy and not too light. It is easy for him to set and to read.

IMG_8279

It fit’s my son’s wrist perfectly! It looks great when he is in tshirt and shorts or if he is in a dress shirt and slacks. Perfect for any occasion.

IMG_8282

He is very pleased with it and has received several compliments when he has worn it. Now he has not tried out the waterproof capabilities on it yet. He doesn’t want to ruin the band and quite frankly he doesn’t plan on showering or swimming with it on.

IMG_8281IMG_8284

Overall this is a great watch for the price. It will make a lovely gift for the man in your life!

Autograph Copy and Goggles Giveaway: The Perilous Journey of the Much-Too-Spontaneous Girl By Leigh Statham

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.
Book Tour Grand Finale for

The Perilous Journey of the Much-Too-Spontaneous Girl
By Leigh Statham
We hope you enjoyed getting a little taste of Lady Marguerite Vadnay’s adventures in this Steampunk world. If you missed any of the tour stops, go back and check them out…

Launch – Tour Welcome

“I’m so excited to share my latest adventure with you. Lady Marguerite Vadnay is at it again, causing problems, and getting in trouble around the world.”

The Broke Book Bank – Review

“Right away, I was pulled into the story. It was easy on the eyes and flowed beautifully. There’s plenty of refresher information so I didn’t feel like I missed anything. It was quite comfortable just jumping in. My luck paid off and the good feeling lasted.”

Falling Leaves – Excerpt

Lady Marguerite Vadnay strapped herself into the tiny compartment and slipped her goggles over her eyes. A glass hood lowered over the upper half while her lower body sat snug in the cockpit of the single-man aership. The wind was blowing enough to rock the small cabin back and forth as her envelope filled beside her, eventually leaving the ground completely, its seams tight with helium.

Letters From Annie (Douglass) Lima – Interview

What dangers should we avoid in New France?
Don’t get on the wrong side of a pirate, or a nun. Some of the girls at His Royal Majesty’s Flight Academy for Resilient Young Women wouldn’t be fun to run into in a dark alley if you’ve recently stolen their boyfriend. But for the most part it’s a wonderful place to visit.

Katie’s Clean Book Collection – Top 10 Tools Lady Marguerite Always Has on Hand

2. A Dashing Young Man (or two) – This goes without saying. A lady must have someone to dote on her every need and provide for her, unless you are a young lady who can take care of herself, then a dashing young man is an excellent target for anger or love, depending on the day.

Wishful Endings – Excerpt

The view was instantly breathtaking. Her new home city of Montreal lay beneath her in all its splendor. The river wound like a loose ribbon through the brick and wood dwellings. Her school was visible almost immediately, its roof littered with experimental equipment for weather and aviations. The chapel caught her eye next, its soaring crucifix and brightly colored windows winking in the perfect morning sun.

Bookworm Lisa – Excerpt

Before she could call for help, Marguerite was whipped around the tower, her envelop caught in the trusses. She banged into one pylon and then another, the glass around her shattered, tearing at her exposed cheeks and nose. She cried out and braced herself for impact with the ground, her giggles from the moment before were now cries for help.

Rockin’ Book Reviews – The Beauty of a Steampunk Setting

But even better than the aesthetic beauty of the steampunk life is the versatility it affords a history buff. You can take almost any story from the past and turn it into something amazing using the basics of steampunk world builind.

Mel’s Shelves – Crushing on Jacques

Jacques Laviolette is a man of many talents. Marguerite frequently takes for granted the tiger she has by the tail in this series. He comes from money, but he’s seen the rough side of life as well. He’s handsome, has a secure future as an aership captain, and certainly doesn’t need the headaches she brings to his life, and yet, he loves her anyway.

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Excerpt

“Marguerite!” Jacques was the first on the scene. “Are you alright, my dear? Quick! Someone get a ladder. Call the medic! Move!” He was barking orders like the Air Captain he was born to be.

September 20th 2016 by Month9Books

Lady Marguerite Vadnay and her trusty automaton, Outil, have settled into life in New France rather well. Marguerite is top of the class at flight school and her future as an aerpilot is nearly secure. She has everything she wants— except a commission on the pirate hunting dirigible The Renegade. Using every card in her aristocratic arsenal, Marguerite wiggles her way onto the finest warship France has to offer. But as usual, Marguerite’s plans endanger the lives of those she holds dear— only this time no one else is going to save them. As Marguerite and Outil set off on a rescue mission they may not return from, she finally realizes it’s time to reorder her cogs.

This steampunk adventure is littered with facts from The Golden Age of Piracy and follows (not too closely) some of the lives and adventures of the brave men and women who sailed the seas as privateers, pirates and soldiers.

Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th-century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors, and a secure future. Except she can’t quite commit to a life of dull luxury and she suspects she may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithy in the family’s steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love—only the trip proves to be more harrowing than she anticipated. Love, adventure, and restitution await her if she can survive the voyage.

Based on the true story of The Daughters of the King, Louis the XIV’s social program to settle the wilds of Canada with women of noble birth, Marguerite’s steampunk adventure follows in the footsteps of nearly one thousand brave women and girls who were rewarded handsomely for trekking across the pirate infested Atlantic to a strange land.

“The writing is solid and the world-building – that clever combination of historical detail and Ms. Statham’s imagination – is excellent.”~ The Australia Times Books

Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho, but found her heart in New York City. She worked as a waitress, maid, artist, math teacher, nurse, web designer, art director, thirty-foot inflatable pig and mule wrangler before she settled down in the semi-quiet role of wife, mother and writer. She resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, five chickens and two suspected serial killer cats.
Leigh is also a founder of QuantumFairyTales.com and is currently serving a life sentence there as senior editor and gnome driver. She loves all things sparkly and strange that go bump in the night.

Excerpt:

Chapter 1

Josh

Graduating high school was supposed to feel like becoming an adult. After so many years of slogging through early morning alarms, bumpy bus rides, and crappy cafeteria food, the day after graduation was supposed to be . . . different. Guess I thought I’d feel like an official adult or something.

Besides the fact that I slept until noon, my life feels exactly the same. Some seniors from my school are planning to move across the country and become crazy party college freshman, but not me. I’m just stuck here in Louetta, Texas, a small town with a few good pizza joints, but nothing really exciting to brag about. I’ll be starting good ol’ community college in the fall, for what, I have no idea. Mom said she’d help me sign up for core classes. Dad said I’ll have a blast. I’m not exactly sure how true that is, since I’ve seen the campus and it looks like a combination of a thrift store and like, an old Walmart. Once college starts, I’ll have two years to figure out what I’d like to major in, and then maybe, I’ll feel more like an adult.

Right now I’m just happy to have one last summer of not doing a damn thing except working at the family business, The Flying Mermaid. It’s a surf shop on the beach, passed down from my grandparents. It was a TV repair shop when they owned it. My parents turned it into a surf shop with a little section at the front for gifts and girly crap my mom loves. It’s a pretty popular hangout at Blue Beach, and working there has always felt more like fun than actual work.

Of course, there are other things I aspire to do this summer.

Like get a girlfriend.
