“PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK – Today’s RRBC Author – Jan Hawke

Today I am spotlighting Jan Hawke, author of Milele Safari – An Eternal Journey.

Author Bio: I live near Launceston in Cornwall, UK with Toby and Benji the Springer Spaniels – it’s a tie between us all as to who’s maddest, but as I outrank them in being weird anyway it’s not open to debate really. I’m physically lazy with things that don’t hold much interest for me (so that’s mostly housework and, increasingly, cooking…), but I love where we live, mainly because I chose it for being so quiet and off the beaten track, very close to the moors and quite near to the sea. I also love books, both to write and to read, the latter of which can be very eclectic (I enjoy Julian Barnes, Kate Atkinson, Jeanette Winterson and will happily admit to Jilly Cooper too) but in the main I’m heavily into SF&F, particularly Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Julian May, although I can pass on Zombie Apocalypses fairly easily… …how I’ve chosen to write about Africa for my first novel may be something of a surprise to my friends, but if you read it you may find that all of the above information manifests in there somehow!

Book Blurb: Milele Safari back blurb – Milele Safari – An Eternal Journey …twines around a single day, in an unremarkable border village that snuffs out the lives of four people and shatters many others, only to draw the survivors back to a different time and, perhaps, a hope of atonement and peace. Step out on the journey and discover an Africa that could have been, is and might one day come to be.

“PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK

Today’s RRBC Author – Rebecca Lombardo

Hello readers – today on THE GUNDERSTONE REVIEW, as well as on ALL of my social media sites, I am going to spotlight, promote, and propel one of my fellow authors from my online book club – #RaveReviews BookClub ( #RRBC )

I have volunteered three days in total this week for our “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK” effort which will showcase three different Rave Reviews Book Club authors.

RebeccaToday I am spotlighting Rebecca Lombardo, author of It’s Not Your Journey.

In her own words:

I’m 42 years old and have been very happily married for 14 years. I live in Michigan with my fantastic husband, Joe. We don’t have children, but we have 5 cats that we rescued. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 19, and I’ve been battling it every day since. I recently closed down a home-based business that I was running, and have been devoting my time to writing and photography. I write to give my feelings a voice and to help others that are struggling. That is why I started a blog in 2013 after I survived a suicide attempt. I’m proud to say that my blog, “It’s Not Your Journey” has now been turned into a book, and was released on August 21, 2015. I consider myself not only a survivor but a warrior.


It’s Not Your Journey

notSynopsis

In her first published work, Rebecca Lombardo collects her internationally followed blog into the pages of It’s Not Your Journey. Rebecca shares her struggles with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-injury, and recovery from a suicide attempt.

Rebecca candidly reveals her real and raw feelings on these subjects, as well as addressing other issues that have contributed to her downward spiral and eventual climb out of her own pit of despair. Issues such as the loss of her mother to lung cancer, the death of her brother, abandonment from friends and family members due to her hospitalization, and more.

At 42 years of age and happily married for nearly 14 years, Rebecca can finally say that she is on her way to reaching her dream. Not only does she hope to help people that are struggling with depression, she hopes to help everyone realize that you are never too old to find your voice.

Today I am spotlighting Misha Elliott, author of Saving Leah and Learning to Fly.

She was also a featured author in the Christmas in the City set of books. These were fourteen newly written stories by fifteen Authors in the City authors. This anthology will benefit a children’s hospital in the Florida area where the 2016 Authors in the City book signing will be held. Authors in the City is hosted by Stephanie’s Book Reports. Misha’s contribution in that set was titled “All I Want for Christmas”.

In her own words:

Misha Elliott is an old movie watching, wine drinking, book-lover. Once a northerner she now calls the sweet state of Alabama her home. She can’t remember a time when books weren’t a part of her life. Writing gives her a reason to talk to the voices in her head. When she isn’t writing you will find her talking about books with friends or at the beach with her toes in the sand.

———————————————————

Saving Leah

saving

Synopsis

Sometimes the only thing worse than revealing a painful secret is keeping it from the one who wants to save you.

In time, fractured bones mend and torn flesh heals. But what about a fractured soul? Years of abuse have left Leah scared and broken, in solitude with the only symbol of the person she used to be-her violin.

While in hiding, she never expected to meet the handsome and alluring Asher. Can he save her before all is lost or will her secrets become the death of her?

———————————————————

Learning to Fly

learn

Synopsis

Growing up is hard enough for the average teen. Not even the average teen has the job of raising their mother in addition to themselves. When another one of her mother’s failed relationships forces the two to move, once again, it makes Sophie face an impossible change for her senior year.

What seemed like punishment has turned into an opportunity. However, what will Sophie do when she has a chance to experience being young for the first time? She’s sure to make a mistake or two while learning to fly.

Today I am spotlighting Lizzie Chantree, author of Babe Driven and Love’s Child

In her own words:

Lizzie is an enthusiastic inventor, businesswoman and artist. She founded her first company at the age of 17 and has been creating products and driving her family mad ever since.

Lizzie has appeared on Sky News, ITV Lunchtime News, This Morning, The Big Breakfast and the BBC’s worldwide radio service, amongst others, for becoming one of Fair Play London’s female innovators.

Lizzie lives in Essex, with her gorgeous husband, two vivacious children and a very unusual dog. In between the school run and baking cakes, (or burning them!) she sits in her rooftop studio daydreaming about gaps in the market and how she can fill them. Babe Driven is her first novel, Love’s Child is her second. She is currently writing her third novel and is collaborating on a children’s book range with her family.

Babe Driven

Babe driven

Synopsis

Driving straight out of trouble and into paradise!

Harriet’s crazily successful business idea is under serious threat, and the danger seems to be coming from inside her own family. She whisks her sister and her friends away to an exotic location to try and work out whose side they are on. It’s time to start damage limitation.

When the girls arrive at the glorious villa owned by Harriet’s maverick business partner Nikki, they find a gorgeous band and their sexy lead singer Max staying next door, out to entice their new neighbours into all kinds of trouble.

This isn’t a holiday for Harriet and she can’t afford to be distracted. She has to sell her business idea to the powerful resort owner, the elusive Mr Grant, while she is there, or she may not have a business to go back to. Harriet will have to choose between family and friends, business or pleasure. For someone who stays out of the limelight, even though her new company is the hottest ticket in town, she’s going to have to avoid the front pages of every newspaper if she wants to survive the ride!

———————————————————

Love’s Child

love

Synopsis

Friendship, loyalty and deadly secrets.

Jemima Trent is desperate to have a designer baby to keep up with her socialite friends, reconnect with her work-obsessed husband, Lucas, and regain some respect from her domineering father.

Something curious is happening and the number of women able to conceive each year is in decline, but no one seems to know why. Dr Cole believes that the answer can be found in a warehouse full of delinquent teenagers, where David Love and his pregnant girlfriend, Tilly, have been hitting the headlines for turning youngsters’ lives around. Dr Cole’s violent and callous employer will stop at nothing to discover the reason behind their success and why girls at the warehouse are able to fall pregnant.

Jemima finally tries to step out of her father’s shadow, but discovers they are more alike than she could ever imagine. David and Tilly vow to keep their secret, but have the lessons of the past been learned and is the world ready for the truth?

Lies, deceit and betrayal, all in the name of love!

Today I am spotlighting ISABEL PIETRI​; In her own words:

Isabel Pietri is a retired Labor Union President from NYC. In retirement, she has re-invented herself as an author and blogger.

Isabel Pietri was born and raised in New York City. She resides now in N. E. Pennsylvania with her husband, a retired forensic investigator, Sheba the wonder dog, and two kitties, Shadow and Missy.

———————————————————

The Black Calla Lily (Millie and Adrian Trilogy Book 2) is her release from this time last year (December 4, 2014).

isabelSynopsis
Millie has come a long way from her life in New York City as a former Detective in the elite TARU unit of the NYPD. She has a life she could never have imagined, married to the handsome and successful Adrian Zaragosa and a growing family. A beautiful winery is the backdrop to their idyllic life at their Luna Llena estate.

Millie and Adrian are the perfect couple living the perfect life. That is until Millie’s troubles from NY – a Colombian drug cartel and a shady lawyer- follow her to Luna Llena, threatening her husband and children. She has something they want and the clock is ticking as their patience wears thin. However, before she concedes, she wants answers to the senseless murder of her ex-partner and lover, Danny. It is only a matter of time before Millie is forced to confront them.

Theirs lives are further complicated when Adrian’s best friend, Juan Carlos, is threatened by ruthless business rivals, leaving Adrian with the task of making a decision that could endanger him, his family and friends.

A love interest from Adrian’s past drives a wedge between him and Millie as outsiders try to lure them into situations that can compromise their relationship, testing their love and loyalty for each other. Will their marriage survive? Can Adrian forgive Millie for interfering in his business and can Millie get past Adrian’s behavior?

The Black Calla Lily comes to a stunning climax as Millie leaves her family behind and races to tie up loose ends with the drug lords for the final show down where she may have to pay the ultimate price: her life.

———————————————————

Editorial Reviews
From the Author

The Black Calla Lily is Book #2 in the Millie and Adrian Trilogy.

I enjoyed writing this book and living vicariously through the main character, Millie Angeles Zaragosa. She is a complex character, loving and gentle, yet would not hesitate a minute to take out any who threaten her family.
