Awesome book alert - The 17 by Mike Kilroy

This book is next on my TBR list. It has aliens, arenas and love. Check it out and let me know what you think!

YOLO? Not here where You Only Live Forever. 
In the center of the universe, an ancient species known as the Ankhs are in their death throes. What they seek is a "Spark." 
Zack Earnest, a rather average seventeen-year-old boy from a small town in Maine, and sixteen others may be able to provide it. The odd and lonely teen is whisked away from his home, from his best—and only—friend, Caroline, and from his mom's scrumptious eggs to a place where the rules of life and death don't apply. 
Teenagers from his world—and from many others as well—are tested in elaborate arenas. They die and are resurrected in a brutal and tortuous vetting process by the Ankhs. 
Zack passes the test and a whole universe is revealed to him. He becomes smitten with Mizuki, the girl (in the solar system) next door, and they soon discover the Ankh's intentions are not what they seem.

New book alert! Bestselling Aranya by Marc Secchia, Shapeshifter Dragons Book 1

After reading Meg Jensen's Hidden, I've been dying to get my hands on more YA dragon fiction. Today's featured book looks like a winner! Aranya is book 1 of the Shapeshifter Dragons series by Marc Secchia. It was released just a month ago and is already a best seller! Make sure you check out the excerpt at the end of this post.

Check out the blurb below:

Chained to a rock and tossed off a cliff by her boyfriend, Aranya is executed for high treason against the Sylakian Empire. Falling a league into the deadly Cloudlands is not a fate she ever envisaged. But what if she did not die? What if she could spread her wings and fly? 

Long ago, Dragons ruled the Island-World above the Cloudlands. But their Human slaves cast off the chains of Dragonish tyranny. Humans spread across the Islands in their flying Dragonships, colonising, building and warring. Now, the all-conquering Sylakians have defeated the last bastion of freedom–the Island-Kingdom of Immadia. 

Evil has a new enemy. Aran…

All I can say is I loved this book - once I started to read it, I couldnt put it down!!!!! Jennifer Leblanc

Now, as a teenager, Alexandria must say goodbye to Catnip Cottage and the Barnabys, her loving guardians for the last twelve years, and go home to Ferntree Falls to claim her inheritance.

Okay guys, please allow me to sound like a total weirdo when I say that I have no idea how Apple ebooks work. Up until just now, I was calling it iTunes, but apparently you download ebooks on iBooks on Apple?


I am super excited that my books are now available for Apple products on whatever the heck their software to purchase ebooks is called. My husband took screen shots on his iPhone for me so I could see them listed in the Apple online store!

Here's a link for Summer Unplugged, my FREE novella on iBooks.
