The Jane Harvest Tour and Giveaway!

The Jane Harvest
The City Book 1
by A Nicky Hjort
Genre: SciFi Fantasy

Winning battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody understands what losing truly means.

On another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun, she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats– lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for the morbid amusement of the masses.

Despite Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must escape.

But when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and survival from true love.

Welcome to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…

She currently lives in coastal central California where she practices medicine as an Ob/GYN. In between being a lovingly devoted mother and delivering babies, she writes stories that cross multiple genre lines- from Sci Fi to high fantasy, but all of her stories have thriller and strong romantic components. And for her clever reader, all of her manuscripts are subtly connected to each other, with their purpose to explore all facets of Love and Light.

Nicky Hjort hopes her stories might inspire you to find your inner creative genius.
As for her heroes- they are as varied and eclectic as her choice of narrative genres, but when pushed to list her favorite influences, she would say James Patterson, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koonntz, Gene Roddenberry, Shel Silverstein, Suzanne Collins, and Walt Disney.

The Extinct Tour and Giveaway!

AM13 Outbreak Series Book 3
by Samie Sands
Genre: Horror

Writing books about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse is one thing—but Georgie Blake can’t believe it has become her reality…

She never expected her fictional stories of blood, death, and the consumption of human flesh to jump off the page into the real world. She certainly didn’t think she’d survive this long if they had. As a shy novelist, she was sure she’d be one of the first to die.

Safe in the Sanctuary, Georgie holds on to hope for a cure...

But that’s not all she holds on to. The government has promised the people of the Sanctuary that they can return home. The rumours are rife that there is an antidote on the horizon. But even if not, the infected are dying out, throwing the treacherous AM13 virus to the brink of extinction. If the infection dies out, this horrible nightmare Georgie is living in will be a distant memory.

Until everything that’s right goes terribly wrong...

Soon after meeting some new friends in the Sanctuary, Georgie learns she’s going to have to face the monsters outside the walls if she wants to return to her old life. But for a scared, introverted bookworm, it may be too much to consider...

Will Georgina conquer her fears of the dead to return home, or will she be one of the countless others who have gone Extinct?

AM13 Outbreak Series Book 2

Every attempt to contain the deadly AM13 virus has failed, leaving humanity on the brink of extinction…

The plague is spreading out of control with no cure in sight. Then the government announces its new plan—a sanctuary in an area completely untouched by the infected—as long as you can get there alive and unscathed.

Ethan Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making every day more hellish than it already is…

Ethan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.

Alyssa Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to challenge her zombie killing skills…

Alyssa knows with absolute certainty that she will survive the AM13 virus. She’s read all the books, watched all the films, and done all the research. She’s strong, tough, and a self-proclaimed badass. Any group would be lucky to fight alongside her…until the unthinkable makes her doubt every skill she’s acquired.

Dr. Jones is a scientist who doesn’t understand why he was selected to produce a cure…

Surely there are survivors more experienced in virology than he is. And what will happen to him—and the rest of the species—if he fails? Is the fate of the human race really resting on his shoulders? Or are there others working toward the same goal?

With the zombies multiplying and survivors struggling to make it to the sanctuary, Ethan, Alyssa, and Dr. Jones fight to fulfill their destinies. If they fail, their fate is sealed, and they will join the millions of others who have been…

AM13 Series Book 1

Leah Watton’s practical joke has spiralled way out of control—all to impress a crush…

With a prank online video, Leah hopes to catch the attention of Jake Colton, a cute, blond-haired, blue-eyed co-worker she’s had a crush on for months. But instead of sending it to Jake, she manages to forward the clip to her boss—who buys every gory second.

When mass panic ensues, Leah learns the video is more than a staged act…

The government is calling the virus AM13. As the outbreak spreads, citizens are forced to stay indoors while they assess the gravity of the illness. Most people are quarantined in their homes, but Leah, Jake, and Leah’s best friend Michelle are some of the unlucky few who are stuck at work when the Lockdown occurs.

That’s where she first encounters one of the infected…

Aside from a contaminated woman devouring one of her co-workers, Leah has another problem. Does she do as she’s ordered and stay at work? Or should she disobey government orders and break free to reunite with her family?

She can’t go it alone—after all, Leah has none of the skills needed to survive—but with Michelle and Jake by her side, not even a contagious virus and a sea of the dead can keep her from…

Breaking out of the Lockdown…

The Kate Dawson Thrillers Tour and Giveaway!

Intimate Bondage
Kate Dawson Thrillers Book #1
by John L. Flynn
Genre: Mystery, Crime Thriller

Someone has a fetish for murder.

Detective Kate Dawson is willing to go undercover to catch a serial killer. 

But this time, undercover may be exactly what the killer wants. 

A rich, politically connected CEO dies in his private dungeon on a foggy San Fran night--beaten and castrated by a mysterious sex worker he hired. Detective Kate Dawson and her partner are assigned the case. Their only lead is a provocative email from "Crystal Rose" and an IP address at the University of San Francisco. 

Before long, Kate's on the trail of a serial killer who uses the seedy underworld of porn shops, Internet sex sites, and S&M clubs to target victims. She knows the only way to catch the killer is to become part of that world. 

John Flynn is the Hugo-nominated author of multiple non-fiction titles including Cinematic Vampires: The Living Dead on Film and War of the Worlds: From Wells to Spielberg. 

In 1997, John switched gears from writing and literature to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. Today, John lives in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and is a dean at Broward College. Intimate Bondage is his first published novel in the Kate Dawson series.

Architects of Armageddon
Kate Dawson Thrillers #2

Someone is hell-bent on world destruction…

Inspector Kate Dawson is called to investigate a mass murder; a call that will change her life, and possibly the whole world—forever.

Certain parents have been directed to put their children to death. They believe they are the Chosen Ones, destined by God to inherit the Earth. The charismatic leader of End Times Ministries, whose grand plan includes stoking the fires of Armageddon, has ordered parishioners to close ranks and prepare for a holy war.
Kate Dawson knows this is not God’s will, but that of a dangerous, diabolical mind that controls the lives of his people. “They plan to start a war!”
Nearly a million people live in the San Francisco Bay area,” Senator Santiago said.
That’s a lot of lives that would be lost, but nowhere near the hundreds of millions of lives lost in a global war, and the starvation, and sickness, and disease that follows.”
So, you’re saying, the Doomsday clock is ticking?” Kate asked, already sensing the answer.
It’s five minutes to midnight . . .”
Kate would have been the first one to confess that she didn’t know a whole lot about politics and religion—but she did know there was a group of fanatics out there who were determined to move the hands of the clock closer to midnight, and it was her duty to stop them.

Murder on Air Force One
Kate Dawson Thrillers #3

Murder on Air Force One When Inspector Kate Dawson is called in the wee hours of the morning, little did she know what would be waiting for her on the tarmac of San Francisco International Airport. Air Force One has landed with a corpse in the lavatory—Madame President and the First Man were on board with a slew of reporters and other presidential personnel. It seems someone enjoyed kinky foreplay, like having their oxygen supply limited, a gasper. It just went too far…or did someone else take advantage and finish her off? International politics, conspiracies, affairs, cover-ups, and all involving the First Family…


Terror at G-20
Kate Dawson Thrillers #4

Terror at G-20 (Fall 2017) by John L. Flynn is the fourth book in The Kate Dawson Thrillers. Someone has a fetish for the Asian sex trade... From what begins as the simple murder of a sex worker, Inspector Kate Dawson follows the clues to human trafficking and ultimately the Asian sex trade. Then, as the date of the G-20 Summit in San Francisco draws closer, Dawson struggles to connect the lives of five Asian women, who have presumably disappeared in Chinatown, with that of a mad North Korean Generals master plan of bringing about economic chaos in the West and his nuclear submarine playing hide-and-go-seek with fishermen in the Bay. As world leaders and economists converge on the annual summit, Dawson must prevent terror from breaking out at the G-20.

In 1995, John switched gears to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. His study, The Etiology of Sexual Addiction: Childhood Trauma as a Primary Determinant (1997), has broken new ground in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual addiction.

Tales of A Wanna-Be SuperHero Mom: Make EXTRA money the Holidays are coming

Tales of A Wanna-Be SuperHero Mom: Make EXTRA money the Holidays are coming: I am just sharing sites that I use to make free money . I get it , people say it isn't free money since you put in some time.  But reall...

Make EXTRA money the Holidays are coming

I am just sharing sites that I use to make free money . I get it , people say it isn't free money since you put in some time.  But really I don't put in that much time and when you let videos run for instance all day and do other things , yes to me that is free money .
And really it is up to you how much you make and the time you put in , Surveys are high payers I just choose not to do surveys. I never pay for anything on the sites , I wont complete an offer I have to pay for to get points kind of defeats the purpose.
Every one of these places are verified as in I have been using them for years and received every payout I submitted with no issues .

I am only going to just touch on each one, I can help with any questions about earning if you sign up and need some help navigating to get started.

All links are my referral links and please use them , it takes nothing away from you and helps me with either one time bonus points or a small percentage on your point accumulation. Separate and does not take any points from you .  If someone provides me with something I always use their referral as a kind gesture.  So enough on that .

Though not a site ,  SBK allows you to send in junk mail in exchange for a Visa . The Visa can either be mailed to you or used virtually. It changes each month for me , sometimes I use the virtual for online shopping or topping up my Tims App or I have it sent to use from anything from Gas to Dollarama ( yes now they accept it ) They will ask for referral Carey Hurst is my name for there , I will receive a one time bonus of 500 points. I do not even utilize half of what I can make here with all the emails I could sent and I make a 20 Visa every month . They do have a 6 month expiry .  Pay out is ever 2000 points is $20.00 and easily made. Your points are accumulated monthly and once they pull points they will message you if you won a Gift Card , and then a couple days later the Visa company will send your code .

Swagbucks is a site I love and have been using a long time . You can make a lot of different gift cards whatever you choose , I always go for the Paypal on every site so I can pay bills with it . My cell and internet bills are never out of pocket paid, always paid for free from my sites.  They have an awesome Refer and earn on right now .   Each 100 points represents $1.00 . I let watch videos run all day as well as Engage me TV you can easily rack up 1.00 a day doing nothing. I do searches, you win points searching 4 times a day. You can make 10 SB points playing the free games, and you can make 10 SB from watching videos on mobile. There is no ceiling on how much you make, depends on all the time you put in to it.  As a referral I make 10% of your overall so for every $5.00 you make I make.50 cents.  PayPal payout used to be in USD and they switched to CAD awhile ago , it was a hit since the 25 you made was over 30 but still free money and the exchange was just a bonus.

(they do not have a promotional banner to share a better pic ) 

Gifthulk For this site each 1000 points is $1.00. I will do Peanut Lab surveys on this site , esp if I win a bonus boost in points. I find you earn more on here for surveys. 1000 points seems like a lot but is honestly not . You get 4 points each hour just by searching . I believe minimum payout for any of the various Gift Cards is $5.00 , best part is you are paid in USD funds for Paypal . . The only issue for this site is you can not sign up through Facebook, someone spammed them and they have had problems ever since.  They usually do your payouts for the week Thursday night or Friday morning and sometimes Sundays.  Referral gives 100 HC on sign up and after they make 1000 HC you get 500 HC , so one time referral points. 

Instagc I love this site, when they say instant they mean instant.  Your first one will take a bit but and any payments over $25.00  per 24 hours are not instant but within a day or 2. You have to cash out $50.00 in other Gift cards before you are allowed to have the Paypal option . This is another site I do nothing but watch videos on, well no I don't watch them I let them run in new tabs.  You are charged per pay out for Paypal , you get one free a month then it is 20 points after that . It is also USD funds so exchange rate :) Each 100 points is $1.00 Wow just saw there are are new ways to redeem including virtual Visas .

You can make as much as you want , it is up to you really . I know I can make a lot more and have decided to devote more time to do so while still not compromising my day. 

Also if I am missing other great places, ( more than survey sites)  leave your links below as well and I will check them out. I do have Toluna, Web perspectives they are not worth it for me . Prize Rebel and prize Zombie I am signed up but find they do not pay out , nor are worth my time trying to make the points, these 3 sites and the junk mail are perfect ones for me.
