Cover Reveal- Release by M.R. Merrick

Hey all!! We are getting the chance to take part in M.R. Merrick cover reveal for Release!! Excited? Well you should be! The Cover looks totally awesome! Christina has had the chance to read both Exiled and Shift, Dani is playing catch up! We also get a chance to win an Amazon gift card, so help us out by leaving a comment below, we would totally appreciate it!!! Anyways, we are both excited to be a part of the reveal so without further ado.......

Totally gorgeous right?! The book releases December 10,2012!! How about a little synopsis? 

After uniting the shifters and calling in reinforcements, Chase has to face his toughest challenge yet: learning to control his emotions. But as tensions rise and his powers grow, controlling his emotions becomes the least of his problems.

Terrorized by a multi-shifter who is hell-bent on turning him, Chase questions just how far he’s willing to go to stop his father.  Meanwhile, Tiki’s virtuous nature has placed him in the middle of Vincent’s past, leaving Chase to oppose a senate of vampires and defend a demon he hates.

Trying to balance his friends, his enemies, and his inner demons, Chase is left searching for answers about the Mark, his destiny, and where he can find the next soul piece. Stopping Riley is his top priority, but as more obstacles arise, he finds himself doubting all the decisions he’s made - especially regarding Rayna.
One thing is for certain: Chase has finally realized that he doesn’t know anything. The light doesn’t always quell the darkness, the monsters don’t always stay in the shadows, and the past doesn’t always stay in the past - sometimes, the demons inside are the hardest to fight.

If you haven't had the chance to check it out, you absolutely have to! We are giving away a paperback copy here on the blog, so scroll down and read the interview, though it does have spoilers, so be cautious, and enter the chance to win! Danielle is totally awesome! She's been playing around with Jordan's POV and giving us die hard Jordan fans his take from a few chapters in the book. Go check out her website HERE to read Chapter 4, the smokey bus scene, from his POV. Dani here, I can't tell you enough how much I absolutely love Jordan, totally would steal him away from Stephanie if I could ;)!

Ok so you know how we said how totally awesome Danielle is? Well one of the scenes Dani wanted to see what Jordan was thinking was the Halloween scene...if you haven't read the book you wont understand why she decided she had to know what he was thinking, Dani is a bit weird lol.(I am and I'm totally ok with it) Well Danielle provided that particular scene!!! OMG can we tell you how excited Dani was, she totally screamed! Ok so without further ado here is the Halloween Scene from Jordan's POV. (chapter 2 around page 13)


I hated the stupid fume filled bus. It snaked through the streets of my neighborhood slower than a turtle in quick sand. Stupid smelly bus. Of all the days my car had to give me a problem it had to be today. It wasnt bad enough I had to stay after school for a meeting on how we can improve the reach of the schools paper to the student body, or that Angela had been waiting at my locker to try and convince me we should Work things out. It was her idea to break up in the first place. No these werent the main reasons I was out-of-this-realm-annoyed with taking the bus home. The main reason, it was Halloween.
            Every year kids would drive through the neighborhood throwing socks filled with dissected frogs and worms from a high school lab. Probably some biology teacher's kid swiped and sold them. Busses were popular targets though. The last thing I needed was a distracted driver.
            I hadn't taken the bus since I got my car and hated it even more today than I did six months ago. Each stop seemed to take a ridiculous amount of time. First the people took forever getting on, then as soon as the driver would close the doors and pull away we'd have to stop at a red light. I looked around at the other riders. A group of them in the back were dressed to impress as zombies and vampires. Didn't they know they looked ridiculous? I couldn't wait to be done with this crowded hunk of metal.
            Finally, we approached my stop. I signaled to the driver I wanted to get off. With screeching brakes and the belching of exhaust fumes the bus stopped. At first I didnt notice the group running amuck in front of my house, but as the driver pulled away the screaming and squealing of the girls had my full focus.  Five girls, and they looked gross! I watched them as I crossed the street, covering each other with shaving cream and eggs. A mess I'd no doubt be cleaning. So help them if one comes my way . . . I thought as I passed them.   
            See, he doesnt want to hang out with us. 
The voice caught my attention. I knew it, though I hadn't heard much of it. She had to be there covered under all that shaving cream. I took a closer look as they turned their attention from one another to me, Maria, Beth, Kylie, Paige and Stephanie. Stephanie's was the one I had been looking for. I didn't want to get caught up in conversation. but I had to acknowledge them somehow. I smiled, gave a quick wave and walked into my house.
Yes he does. Youll see.  I heard Beth snap at Stephanie in her snotty know-it-all tone as I closed the door behind me. I thought of opening the door and yelling out, no Beth I don't. I really, really don't! Ooh Beth could gat under my skin.
"Hey Jordan," my mother called to me. "Did you see those girls outside?" She snickered amused.
"Yeah," I groaned.
"They've been waiting for you."
As if my day hadn't been bad enough now I had more fun to contend with. A bunch of freshman girls jumping up and down for me to notice them covered in sticky, slimy goo.  Who thought that was cool?
"Hey, go outside, get your mind off things and we'll get your car after dinner."
Maybe she was right, maybe I should just go out there and blow off some steam. On the upside, there were five of them and only one of me. That had to prove entertaining. It would've been better  though if the girls were mud fighting instead. That I could get into, watching a bunch of barely dressed girls throwing it down in the mud wearing little more than panties and wet tee shirts.
I let that thought run wild in my mind as I changed into some grungier clothes. Before I went back out I peeked out the window to make sure they were still there.  They were, and Stephanie, quiet, shy Steph unload on  Beth. I smiled. She deserved it the way she  snapped at Stephanie. Good for her!
The rest of the group turned on Beth as well. She became the main dish in a cream and egg banquet. I heard her yell and shriek. I wondered why it made me so happy watching her get doused. Was it because Stephanie did it? I shook that idea off. Stephanie was sweet and pretty, but way too young. And way too innocent. Yet here I was  thinking of her like that covered in mud.
I continued to watch Stephanie looking triumphant and happy. I never saw her look so carefree. She looked beautiful, even in her current state. Watching her inspired me. I dashed into the kitchen, grabbed a paper plate, and filled the entire dish with shaving cream so it looked like a pie. Now I was ready! 
Amidst the craziness, the girls didn't notice me sneak out. Once I got behind her I knew my mission was accomplished, the element of surprise was on my side. I caught her mid-laugh as I tapped her shoulder. I felt a thrill rising up, from my stomach to my chest.
I couldn't help the smirk that covered my face.  Our eyes met and she stood there smiling, frozen. I saw so much communicated in that smile; friendship, trust, and desire. It was the first time I saw that in her eyes.  She was so focused on me she didn't notice my hand or what was in it. Not until it was too late. She had no time to duck or move.
I pulled the plate away from Stephanie's face and laughed. Everyone laughed. I couldn't stop. I leaned over and held my stomach. I watched her eyes change from surprise to shock to anger, but her eyes never left me. And just like that my day got a whole lot better!

So OMG Love Love Love Jordan, and Love Danielle Sibarium for providing Jordan's POV for us! Make sure you check out his interview, though we didn't show it, Dani was so crushing on Jordan, quite comical to see how "girly" and shy she was being! Anyways we hope you enjoy his POV and enter the contest! We can't thank you enough on all the love you guys are sending our way on twitter and Facebook!

For Always Contest

You never really get over your first love. Such is the case for fourteen-year-old Stephanie Barrano, self-proclaimed misfit and death magnet. A freshman in high school, Stephanie is befriended by Jordan Brewer, a hot, in-demand senior, who pulls her from the outer circle of obscurity into the realm of acceptance. Jordan quickly works his way into Stephanie’s heart. He’s her everything. And the only person she trusts with the truth about her father’s death. But he won’t act on the strong feelings he has for her. Stephanie vows to wait for him, knowing in time she’ll
win his heart. Two months before her eighteenth birthday, Jordan serves as an impromptu prom date. After sharing a magical evening, Jordan leaves Stephanie with the promise of a future together. Then tragedy strikes. Jordan not only shuts Stephanie out, he also blames her for what happened. Feeling broken and beaten, will she try one last time to get through to Jordan or will she lose him forever?


We don’t know how many of you actually had the opportunity to read For Always by the lovely Danielle Sibarium, and if you haven’t beware this interview we are about to do contains spoilers!!! So with that being said, we are so excited about doing this interview with Jordan, and since there are two of us, we figured some color coding is needed, lol. So Dani will be pink, Christina will be purple, Jordan will be blue, and black will be the both of us! Stay tuned to the end, it will contain some vital news!
So Jordan I want to start by saying thank you so much for meeting with us, I’m way excited and I can honestly say my day just got better! My name is Dani and this chica on my right is Christina, we are the Crazy Book Chicks!

It’s a pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for having me here.

Ok so the one question that’s been on my mind since I’ve read your story; I know Stephanie called you for her friend Maria, then you saw her at the movies, but when did you first initially notice her? 

The first time I noticed Stephanie? Hmm. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that day. It was the first day of school, her first day of high school (smiles wistfully). I stood at my locker and I saw Maria waving in the hall. I waved back and she grabbed Stephanie by the wrist and dragged her over. Stephanie wouldn’t even look at me, she looked scared to death. Scared and beautiful.

* mumbles under her breath, Can you blame her I mean your gorgeous*

So when was the first time you knew you wanted Stephanie? 

That’s a tough one, I feel like I’ve wanted her forever. But if I had to pick a single moment in time, I’d say it was the day of the smokey bus incident, you heard about that right? I know who hasn’t?  After we got back to school we were standing in front of my locker and we were staring into each other’s eyes, everyone and everything around us seemed to disappear. All I could think about were her lips and how sweet they’d taste.  

*fans self*, Dang Christina did it just get hotter in here? 

We could tell Stephanie wasn’t too thrilled when you dated girls, but how did you feel when you saw her dating? 

To say I wasn’t happy when I found out she was with Chris is an understatement. And then she stopped coming to my locker, which I tried to convince myself was for the best. But seeing them together . . . I didn’t expect to feel like the wind was knocked from me. And not just with Chris, every time I saw her talking to another guy, I’d get angry. I’d look for a reason to start a fight with him. Of course I never did, except with Chris.  The funny thing is I didn’t even realize at first that I was jealous. But I hated it. 

Did you like Charlie? He seemed to be the best out of the bunch…though he still wasn’t you! Wait did Stephanie ever tell you what really happened between her and Charlie?

What really happened? Oh you mean that jerk sweet talking her while he was in love with someone else? No I didn’t like Charlie. True, he seemed better than most of the other guys she dated, but he made me nervous. He was the only one that really worried me because he seemed to really care about her, and I knew he was the type of guy she could fall in love with. I knew he might just steal her heart and I wasn’t sure I could let that happen.

OH yea, so umm maybe you should talk to Steph about the real reason, uhm , that they broke it off… *looks around the room at Christina* That so could not happen! Steph was totally in love with you….seriously ask her about Charlie!

So tell me how felt at the prom? The after party?

I couldn’t let Stephanie miss out on one of the most important night in a girl’s life. There are certain memories you have forever, and prom is one of them. It was a night where all I had to do was be by her side, and make sure she had a good time. Easy enough. I didn’t count on enjoying it so much. We danced and laughed, I saw her in a new light. She was strong and confident.  And when I looked at her for the first time that night, it hit me how much she’d grown up. I think that was the moment I realized I’d been waiting for that night since we met.

The after party was amazing. It was a night I’ll always keep close to my heart. All I wanted to do was steal her away and have her all to myself under the moonlight, but once we were alone she started down a path I wasn’t sure we were ready for. Of course Stephanie wouldn’t take no for an answer, I have that effect on her (smiles). 

I’m pretty sure you have that effect on anyone that falls into the female category! 

The accident was a major turning point in your story…Did you really blame Steph for the accident? Why did you hurt her so bad?

Did I blame her? Yes and no. Stephanie was an easy target. She’s always had the contorted idea that she’s the reason bad things happen to people she loves, like she’s some sort of jinx.  I’ve been trying since we met to convince her otherwise, but when it happened, she was convenient. She pushed me to admit my feelings for her, and I started to think if I never took her to the prom at all, none of it would’ve happened. 

And then she confronted me, I just didn’t know what to do, I needed space and she wouldn’t back off, so I lashed out at her. I’m ashamed to admit that I did mean to hurt her, but only so she’d back off. When I had time to think about what I’d done . . . well you know the rest.  

It seems like most of the hurdles have been cleared, what are your plans now that you and Stephanie are together?

 I want to spend every day with her looking toward the future. I want to prove to her she’s worthy of a happy ending, and work to make sure I’m worthy of her love. 

I love Stephanie, but do you think there’s a chance we will get to see your side of the story?

I doubt you’ll see my side of the story. I went through a really tough time there and I’d like to put it behind me, just forget about it. I know that’s not possible, but to relive it . . . I don’t think I want to do that. 

I can understand that and though I’m a little sad, I totally get it!

Is there talk about a possible sequel in the making?

We keep trying to talk Danielle into it. We make it tough for her to focus on anyone else. We even laid out the entire plot for her.  She finally agreed to consider it, but I’m not a hundred percent sure we convinced her to do it. But if we do get the sequel we want, I can promise there will be a few surprises. 

*squeals* This is good news, I’ll just have to keep bugging Danielle, maybe I can convince her!

Thanks again for meeting with us; we absolutely loved getting the chance to spend some time with you!

Thank you for having me! I’d love to come back, but you know Stephanie, she tends to get jealous. ;-)

Oh My God, Jordan is super sexy and we had a fabulous time meeting with him, I know I had a hard time not drooling! So being major fans of Danielle Sibarium, and the fact that Dani loves Jordan, we decided to share our love of For Always and have a giveaway! YES excited right, well so are we. Dani, has an extra paper back copy of For Always and a signed book mark to Danielle’s other amazing book, Heart Waves, up for grabs. We will be running the contest up until the first and then the Winner will be announced on October 2!! Big thanks to Danielle for letting us interview Jordan, he's totally my favorite!

Can he make her fall in love with him… again?

When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.

But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.

When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.

Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.

If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way.

So I stayed up until about 1am reading Abbi Glines CEASELESS and omg if I didn’t actually cry when it was over. Before you get worried, I cried because it is officially over. I’m not ready to let go of Pagan and Dank, but I guess the good thing is I can always go reread the books, so that makes the end a little easier to handle.

I was so worried and nervous during the whole book, heck I was nervous before I even read the book. Pagan has no recollection of who Dank is, WTH?! I was totally flipping out and ready to send Abbi some not so nice words, just kidding Love Abbi and would never and I mean NEVER do something like that! Christina and I have been waiting for this book and I can honestly say I was not disappointed!

If you’ve read the series you know that Pagan and Dank have had their ups and downs, and boy it doesn’t get any easier for them. The book starts off with Pagan and Miranda arriving at college to unload their stuff into their dorms. Gee pulls in next to them, scaring Miranda, then Pagan drops her box of shoes because of Dank and his motorcycle. This is how they meet for the first time again.
Then Jay is present, something I dislike majorly, and tries to get Pagan to give him another chance. He turns out to be someone totally different than who he was before and Pagan doesn’t really want anything to do with him. Dank tries to get her to remember who he is without actually telling her, because, well the Deity forbids it.  Miranda falls in love with Nathan, if you read Predestined you know who Nathan really is, so don’t be too hard on Miranda. Then LEIF, for the love of all that’s holy, Leif comes back to get even with Dank….what does he do you ask…well you’re going to have to read to figure that out!!

Will Pagan remember Dank? Who will she choose Dank or the soul mate? GO READ NOW to find out! Oh and check out Abbi Glines sound cloud page  to hear Dank Walker's amazing songs!!


To say that I love Abbie Glines is an understatement! I love ALL her books. However I think the Existence series has been my most favorite! Abbi made me fall in love with Death too.  In the Form of The One Dank Walker! :)  Ceaseless is the final book in the series.  We finally see "The End".  If you have read the series you know that Pagan Moore saw souls everywhere she went.  She was saved from death at a young age, however that safe was with conditions.  Her soul belonged to a Voodoo Prince named Leif.  But Pagan fell in love with death (Dank).  

You need to read the other books to see the story from the beginning if you haven't.  When this book opens, Pagan's Memories are taken from her, everything about the souls and Dank and Gee and Leif are ALL gone.  Dank wants her back and wants her to remember so bad! He dates her, helps her and loves her from afar.  He is not allowed to tell her, that is one of the rules, she has to choose him and remember on her own.  But they are faced with challenges.  Will Pagan Remember Dank?  Will she remember their love? And Will Death get to keep the ONE and ONLY thing he loves?  Read to find out.  You won't be sorry! I LOVED this series and sad to see it end!
