Collision

(Trial Bay series Book 1)

By PJ Byer

Angry and defiant, Stella runs away from home and lands in a small seaside village. It is overlooked by the forbidding ruins of Trial Bay gaol.

Stella hides out in the town and is disturbed by her growing confusion about her identity. Her mysterious flashbacks to the gaol one hundred years before are even more frightening.

What is reality? What is fantasy? And is the guy next door the one to help her solve the mystery?

Or will a stranger unlock the key to her past?

How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?

Collision ties well to the previous book listing, Juliet’s Journey by Kathy Gates, because the main characters in both novels suffer the loss of their mother.

eBook Sites and Giveaways

SpecialNovelTies.com wants to introduce readers to new authors and authors to new readers. However, part of the novelty of this site is that each new eBook listing must somehow “tie” to the previous. This is obviously not the quickest way to stock a website with featured eBooks.

So. What’s a website to do? – Attract readers and authors by providing something special. Authors will probably see this as a large list of places to promote books, whereas readers will likely see many places to find new books plus a few places to find great giveaways of every sort.

This list is for educational and entertainment purposes only. SpecialNovelTies.com makes no guarantee regarding these links or the content of the sites linked. Viewer discretion is advised. This article will be updated at times and sites may be added or removed.

Juliet’s Journey

By Kathy Gates

Juliet Carlsen is about to become a volunteer in an art school in the tiny northern Italian village of Baiardo. She has recently suffered the loss of her mother. Serene surroundings, a warm welcome and the attentions of a handsome local named Luca help her come to terms with her loss. Then someone from her past shows up and turns everything on its head. Juliet finds herself in the middle of a conflict that threatens to tear the fabric of village life.

How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?

Juliet’s Journey ties to the previous book listing Gifted Merely Human by the fact that a journey, whether external or internal is at the very heart of the human condition. Every story takes the reader on a journey and every journey holds the promise of, at least, one story.

About the Author

Kathy GatesKathy Gates loves three things: walking, travel and writing. Her novels and shorts stories aim to combine all three. Born and raised in Sydney, Kathy now lives in Hobart – it’s like Sydney but smaller and the food and wine is better.

Kathy has a background in marketing where she enjoyed making up stories; writing novels seemed an obvious career move.

Hashtags for Readers and Authors

Authors need readers as much as readers need authors. Similarly, authors need other authors. After all, no author is an island.

And, of course, everyone needs hashtags. Readers use them mostly to recommend books to other readers. Writers use them to share new releases and special promotions and to play “author games,” often sharing an excerpt from a WIP (work in progress). Some hashtags represent book genres. Others are used by writers’ groups to connect with other members. The possibilities of hashtag usage are endless.

Undeniably, it’s important to understand a hashtag before using it. For example, authors shouldn’t attach #CR4U which means “Clean Reads for You” to books with a lot of gore or adult language. Not only would it not be appropriate, but people who follow the hashtag and subsequently buy a book believing it is a “clean read” will likely be upset when they learn it is not. This is an outstanding way for an author to earn a 1-star “not as advertised” or “I hated this book” review. It would be equally undesirable to attach the hashtag of a group without being a member. This importance of hashtag comprehension holds true for readers too. Readers looking for science fiction, won’t likely find it by following #ContemporaryRomance.

The long list of hashtags below are associated with reading and writing. Some have other uses as well and maybe that’s a good thing. A personal trainer following #MotivationMonday, for instance, might notice a few wise words of an author and look closer—maybe even buy a book.

This list is only for entertainment. It is by no means complete, nor will it ever be. The hashtags are linked to Twitter however many or perhaps most are used across the social networks.

(This author’s favorites include #CR4U, #TieMyBook, #amWriting, #WriterProblems, #1lineWed, and #Thurds)

Gifted Merely Human

By Stephanie Adams

A world exists beyond our sight, just within reach. Evelyn, one of a select few with special gifts, is recruited to live in a community of the gifted who use their powers for profit. Evelyn finds herself wrapped up in a secret threatening to destroy the new home she has come to love or it could destroy the country that she calls home. In the battle between good and evil not everything is black and white, so how will she decide which path is right or wrong? Evelyn must uncover the truth and decide her own fate before it is too late.

How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?

Gifted Merely Human “ties” to the previous book on the list, Shadow of Shame, through the element of danger. In Shadow of Shame, the hero saves a woman he loves from danger. In Gifted Merely Human, the heroine is endowed with powers that make her a force of nature. She saves the man she loves from danger while putting herself at risk in the process. She loves him so much that she is willing to sacrifice herself in order to save him. This love that she feels, is a new experience for her and one that pulls her out of the rut she had been in since the death of her mother.

About the Author

Stephanie AdamsStephanie has loved reading and writing since she was very young. She wrote her first full length book by hand when she was 14 years old. When she was young, she didn’t get grounded from going places, she was grounded from reading.

A veteran of the armed forces, a licensed cosmetologist, biology and math teacher, and small business owner, she wears many hats. She has two beautiful children and a wonderful husband who support her when she just can’t get a story out of her head and has to sit down for many hours alone to write. Her goal is to continue sharing her heart with the world, through her books. Her greatest aspiration is to inspire young minds to create art of their own and inspire them to have the courage to share it with the world.
