Blogger Book Fair Donations

Hi there! I've had a lot of participants say that they would like to have BBF advertised more. Since I already donate tons of time to BBF, I can not afford to also donate money. That is where the new donation fund comes in. Any money donated to the new fund will be used for advertising first and prizes in BBF giveaways second. These are the ONLY things this money will be used for. I'll come up with some sort of ratio: 80% ads and 20% prizes? I don't know yet. You can suggest a ratio in the comments if you'd like.

The ads will be focused on BBF and not individual authors or books to be fair to everyone. The prizes will likely be Amazon Gift Cards or something like that.

If you would like to donate, please click on the Paypal donation widget in the left panel. You can donate any amount and any amount will help. Thank you!

Alexandra Allred

Alexandra Allred is the author of Damaged Goods and the upcoming releases White Trash and Roadkill. All of them are Dramadies--a cross between drama and comedy--and are also mysteries. Alexandra has a brand new blog on which she will feature Tom Immins during the Blogger Book Fair. Here are the blurbs for her books:

Damaged Goods:

On paper, Marcus, Texas, looks like any other small town in Texas. Its landscape is charming, lifelong residents have a shared history, and business is booming. But soon after Joanna Lucas moves to town, she makes startling discoveries. Her next door neighbor had her leg gnawed off by a loose tiger, a beer-drinking emu lurks on her property, and her real estate agent neglected to mention that something in Marcus was making the residents very sick. While Joanna ponders hiring illegal immigrants to work on her newly acquired but dilapidated house, others are wondering about Joanna. Is she the one? Could she be the outsider they have been looking for to turn things upside-down and reveal the ugly truth?

With such heavy topics as corporate greed, industrial pollution, illegal immigrants, and corrupt politicians, only the residents of Marcus could make Damaged Goods a comedy. Prepare to cheer and laugh out loud as they fight city hall!

Available Now
The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House (On Sale for $4.99 during BBF!)

White Trash:

When Thia Franks returns to her hometown of Granby, Texas, the very place to which she’d vowed never to return, Granby’s worst and best elements force the new single mother to face both her past and her destiny. At first, it seems that nothing has changed: Chester Kennedy’s goats continue to run rampant through the town, Officer Tina Wolfe stands accused of racial profiling the growing Hispanic community, Thia’s gun-wielding neighbor believes a squirrel has it in for her, and the town’s local newspaper owner prints only what she believes the citizens should know. But when a young black man–-an upstanding and popular citizen of the small, east-central Texas town–-is brutally murdered, everything changes. Everyone is being watched. Everyone is being judged.

Coming July 2013!

Except the spell-binding Estella… **** Estella finally has her best friend back… …and, despite her many years of training in the art of magic, it wasn’t until recently that she discovered just how deep the paranormal world goes. But no matter how overwhelming the revelations might be, she’s found reassurance and comfort in the depths of Xander’s supernatural embrace… **** With their relationship’s intensity growing, a new threat emerges from Stryker family’s past; one with a personal vendetta and visceral goals.

Read about them below. She will also be host to two authors and will be announcing free books and a giveaway on her blog during the BBF.


Book #1 in Vigilare series. Where One System Fails, Another Never Gives Up! Detectives Gina DeLuca and Tony Gronkowski investigate a string of murders among Vanguard's most loathsome population, rapists and pedophiles. With fed up citizens, the city is on the verge of a vigilante uprising in support of their seemingly superhuman Vigilare with the sparkling emerald green eyes. Friend or foe, Vanguard Police Department has a job to do in bringing the vigilant one to justice, causing their own internal battle with right and wrong, immoral and just. Following their leads, Detectives DeLuca and Gronkowski find themselves pulled into a mysterious world of super blood and super powers, and closer to the Vigilare than ever expected. It's a race to the finish between Detectives DeLuca and Gronkowski and the Vigilare to figure out who she is and why she exists. The first in a Trilogy, Vigilare-the one who watches over-comes to light. Advisory: Rated Mature. Mature themes. Mature language. Not for young audiences. Nor for the faint of heart.

Available Now

Vigilare: Hellhound:

Book #2 in Vigilare series.

A red hue emerges, where once it was only emerald green!

Now accepting of her position, Vigilare is propelled into a twist on Greek Mythology's Cerberus―Hell Hound―a rival Vigilare with fire capabilities. ETNA harbored her blood. Have they created a monster they cannot control? Along with her motley crew, the dashing Detective Tony Gronkowski, wily hematologist Dr. Godfrey and suspicious Emily Truly, Vigilare comes face to face with her past in the form of the hellish one.

As the city of New Orleans and its Gambini mafia family are under siege with Vigilare drones, the power hungry Emily wastes no time in solidifying her place in the ranks when she exposes Vigilare to the menacing Hell Hound. Newcomer, Maxim Kiesel, the steel blue-eyed prodigy graced with icy powers may very well be the antidote, or the ultimate traitor.

Will Vigilare give up her role, sacrificing her immortality to stop Hell Hound? The second in a trilogy, Vigilare: Hell Hound―when power is given, the true testament of one's character will rise.

The Boots My Mother Gave Me:

Made to feel a burden to her father simply by her gender, Harley is determined to prove her worth and independence, leaving the small town she grew up in and the one boy who gave her a soft place to fall, Jeremiah Johnson. Torn between saving herself and abandoning her mother and younger sister, Harley chooses her own life in hopes they will choose theirs, too.

A mature, candid read for everyone. A must for women. The Boots My Mother Gave Me explores the dynamics of abuse and dysfunction, the courage to overcome, the strength in sisterhood, and the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mothers and daughters.

Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love.

Get This Body in a Barn: A Milkmaid's Guide to Fitness:


If you're looking for a no thrills, no frills, tried and tested laywoman's fitness routine for the average everyday woman, you may enjoy this book.

Call me a fundamentalist, in life and in physical fitness, which I find helpful in productivity and time management. I don't have much time for novelties. I enjoy capitalizing on the basics. Life doesn't have to be complicated, no more than does fitness. The fast-paced world in which we live has all of us chasing down the ever elusive element of time. “I don't have the time” is the number one reason/excuse people consistently cite for not working out.

This book is my interpretation of working with what you have and making what you have work for you, in both your physical form and fitness resources, while keeping in mind convenience and time factors. This is a guide for beginners and intermediates, highlighting a few, very basic, yet specific resistance and cardiovascular exercises that are fully transportable across the gym and at-home fitness spectrums. Equipped with our bodies and very few essentials, we all have the capacity to meet our fitness goals. With those things, there is nothing left to do but to do it…get active.

In its relativity, having the time has nothing to do with it. Working out boils down to will and commitment, making the time has everything to do with it. Personally, I find I am more inclined to make time for fitness if it is convenient, productive (yields results) and if I can capitalize on my gains (cash in on the best results in the shortest amount of time). To me, that outcome is worth making time for. These are the principles discussed herein, turning up the intensity for a shorter period of time, attempting to accrue more bang for your buck!

Inspired by a makeshift gym in a barn, all exercises and principles within the book are translatable across the continuum, be it a spare room, the garage, the gym or a barn. With an encouraging girl-next-door delivery, birds-eye view of my personal regimen and basic blueprints for constructing your very own weekly workout regimen, sculpting the body you desire is simply a matter of commitment, time management and follow-through.

My fitness credentials include previous certification as a Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist. I am currently a licensed Registered Nurse. I have an M.A. in Commnication and a B.S. in both Animal Science and Nursing, with a minor in Athletic Training. However, my physical fitness education started in my childhood, growing up on a dairy farm...the impetus behind the book and its humble 'tongue-in-cheek' cover.

As tension between the former lovers mounts, something wicked is stirring in Scotland.

The Key Inheritance is a novella that takes place a decade after the events of The Burning of Isobel Key.

Cassandra's boyfriend, Daniel, is late for the party. He's still outside the city when all hell breaks loose. What he believes is an act of terrorism proves to be a full-fledged revolution. Væmpires--former vampires who mutated into warm-blooded creatures with an insatiable hunger for cold blood--have launched coordinated attacks across the globe, with three goals: the eradication of humanity, the enslavement of vampires, and the ascension of væmpires as the dominant species on the planet.

The vampire and human leaders are killed. Cassandra is missing. Daniel is the acting king. Desperate to find the princess, Daniel and his friends fight their way across the besieged city. With the hopes of the free world resting on the shoulders of four vampire teenagers, væmpires unleash their secret weapons: a new breed of væmpire that is far deadlier than any ever seen before.

What can four teens do against an enemy that can shape-shift, fly, and walk through walls?

Vaempires: White Christmas

It's almost Christmas. With the global holiday days away, the people of the world should be turning their attention toward celebrating peace and goodwill, but tension between humans, vampires, and væmpires is at an all-time high. Desperate for solutions, King Brant schedules a secret summit deep in North America's Northern Forest. Along with Queen Anne, Princess Cassandra, Daniel's family, and the human president and First Lady, the vampire leader seeks to reaffirm the ties between humans and vampires, while brainstorming ways to respond to the growing hostility among væmpires.

Meanwhile, Daniel and Cassie's relationship is at an all-time low. The princess is still reeling from her breakup with Vielyn, and Daniel doesn't know what he should or shouldn't do to help. Little does he know that the summit will be flooded with surprises--guests, allegations, accusations, proposals, and even Christmas Eve revelations--but not all of the surprises will be pleasant.

Wild Point Island:

Banished from Wild Point Island as a child, Ella Pattenson, a half human-half revenant, has managed to hide her true identity as a descendent of the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Thought to have perished, the settlers survived but were transformed into revenants--immortal beings who live forever as long as they remain on the island.

Now Ella must return to the place of her birth to rescue her father from imprisonment and a soon to be unspeakable death. Her only hope is to trust a seductive revenant who seems to have ties to the corrupt High Council. Simon Viccars is sexy and like no man she's ever met. But he's been trapped on the island for 400 years and is willing to do almost anything for his freedom.

With the forces of the island conspiring against her, Ella must risk her father, her heart, and her life on love.

Meet Me at the Pond:

A long time ago, I believed in magic. I believed that people could levitate a wooden box. I believed that magicians could read minds. I even believed that little white doves could and would actually fly out of a sleek black scarf. I lost my appetite for magic the first time someone broke my heart. Naturally, it was not the first time that I had been heartbroken, but it was the first time that someone took my heart, tore it up, and danced on the little pieces. At that moment, I was no longer "Missy Lawrence: Believer of all things magical." No, no, at that moment, I became "Missy Lawrence: Most likely to fall for it every time."

She turns to the local historian and learns of Sha' na ho bet, the angry fire god, bound forever to Earth. Native Americans tell her about Coyote, the Trickster who creates chaos out of order. Then the dreams begin with windows into past lives, hints of multidimensionality, and the promise of life beyond death.

Legends abound and so Shadow Ley, the home Kellyn had hoped would bring peace to herself and her children, becomes mired first in doubt, then in terror, and finally in love eternal.

Foreign Identity:

Cold. Confusion. Fear. This is how it all begins.

Waking up without your memory in a cell and bound by chains is terrifying.

Two nameless strangers, a man and a woman, find themselves imprisoned together. With no memories of their own identities, let alone their captor and tormentor, escape is the only option. The pair faces a bizarre labyrinth of rooms and clues that confuse more than they explain. Every discovery only brings more questions.

Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean?

Who are they?

Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits--and each other--for survival. But survival isn't enough. They need answers.

Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?

Sub-Normal #1: Not the Norm

Eden has a dangerous secret.

In a world where GenEns (enhanced humans) are the norm, her own ability is flawed. If anyone found out about the glitch in her genetic code, she'd be deemed a sub-norm, as one unfit to exist in the human race. Her certain fate would be extermination.

She always thought keeping her defect secret was her biggest struggle. That concern vanishes when her life is put in danger. Suddenly, fighting back is her only option, and she's completely unprepared.

Her only chance for survival is by wielding her damaged power. But fear and painful memories threaten to hold her back. What will happen to her if she unleashes the terror within?

A Sub-Normal short story. Approximately 6500 words.

Available Now

Sub-Normal #2: Unmasked Alloy

Genetically enhanced humans populate earth. Flaws are prohibited. Refusing to be altered means death—unless you can successfully evade capture.

Dake is one of these sub-norms on the run, and Eden’s status as a malfunctioning GenEn isn’t much better.

When Eden flees with Dake, their spree as fugitives is all too brief. Captured and thrown into a government holding facility where the only likely outcome is execution, the pair seeks help from an unlikely and untrustworthy ally.

In this second installment of the Sub-Normal series, trust and justice mix it up with the hyper-powered.

Approximately 7000 words.
