Cover Reveal of Pictures, Lies and Promises by Tiffany  Carmouche


Best Selling Author Tiffany Carmouche has been given the title, The Queen of The Cliffhanger and Best Unknown Author You Need to Discover. When Tiffany Carmouché is not writing suspenseful romance novels, you can find her sculpting, traveling, teaching, singing, dancing, escaping in music or enjoying her family.

From skydiving in Alaska to scuba diving in Hawaii, Carmouché has traveled the world seeking adventure and it is apparent in the books she writes. Her adventures include riding camels in Africa, swimming under the stars in Puerto Rico, dancing salsa in Ecuador, and walking the cobblestone roads of Assisi, Italy. She has also found fulfillment working with the disabled and orphans in Argentina and Mexico. Her most cherished moments, however, have been watching her two beautiful daughters grow and strive to accomplish their own dreams.

Despite all of these amazing experiences, she has survived many struggles. There was a time she felt defeated, but now she is recommitted to savoring experiences both in the novels she writes and in the life she lives each day. Her secret hope is that anyone who is struggling will realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel and no matter how hard the fight, no matter how many times they have been knocked down, it is always worth staggering up to their feet and learning to breathe again.

Review: “Wow - what an amazing job Tiffany has done. There wasn't a moment that I wasn't engaged with the characters or the plot. The build up of mystery and tension in this suspenseful romantic novel is superbly done. I found myself constantly holding my breath and nervously listening for creaks in the house. There were some beautifully crafted romantic moments that had me swooning for Dylan, and several moments when I shed a tear. Stunning! The novel flowed very well, effectively creating a good balance of suspense, character interaction and the lovely romance. The ending. Oh my! Tiffany, what an ending you have created. I have no idea what to expect for book two, Obsession and Sacrifice, other than I can not wait to read it. And no doubt it will be as wonderful as The Impostor.” -Becky Johnson, Bex and Books
Obsession and Sacrifice is the SECOND novel in a New Adult Suspenseful Romantic series. The Alaskan Heart Saga about unexpected love and a woman’s fight for survival. It is a series of growth, acceptance and having the perseverance to begin again.

Her only hope to rediscover her past and avoid a killer's obsession lies in the hands of two men: sexy Dylan, her boyfriend, who used to captivate her, and Bradley, her charming best friend, who has secretly loved her all along. She feels safe around both men but to her, they are strangers. Nicole must decide who to trust, not only with her heart, but with her life.
The two men vow to give her a second chance at life and both will sacrifice everything to make sure she survives.
Excellent! - Obsession & Sacrifice is here & it did not disappoint! The second of the trilogy gives you a tiny re-cap of the last chapter from the ‘The Impostor’ & sets the atmosphere ready for the roller-coaster of a read that awaits you! Once again the authors’ descriptive writing connects you right at the heart of the outstanding romance, intrigue, suspense & action. Yet again, Tiffany has written another book that I just couldn’t put down. There are so many different aspects to this book & the author has succeeded in making every chapter progress & flow at an exhilarating pace. Overall it’s a 10/10 from me & I’m here pacing the floor again, ready for the book. –Nichole Walsh

Becoming Invisible is the THIRD book The Alaskan Heart Saga, a Contemporary New Adult Series about finding unexpected love and a woman’s fight for survival.
Passion. ..Obsession. ..Love…Loss.

Review of Becoming Invisible
“Becoming Invisible is the third book of the series and it has you hitting the ground running. Another fantastic, descriptive, heart-pounding read from Tiffany Carmouche. The story continues at a perfect pace and will have your temperature rising with lust, your heart pounding with anticipation and have your body tingling with chills, a real rollercoaster read. The intrigue, romance and suspense is perfectly written from each of the characters perspectives so it gives you that little extra insight into their thoughts and emotions, pulling you further into the story. I’m totally hooked and begging for the next installment already!”~Nicki Wilson

You will smile one minute and then gasp the next and when you think you know the answers HA! New questions will come into your mind! Leaving you wanting more!  I love the strong characters of this book, they  love and the fight for what they want and keep surviving.
Saying I loved this book is not really the right word , it is bigger than that word!
I recommend this to everyone because it will not disappoint. "~ Nikki Alper Targum Arc Reader

Cover Reveal and Re-Release Party for 
The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles by S.L. Dearing


 Another world war has happened and everything we knew is now gone. There are no more countries.  No more government... only survivors who have created a new world made up of small colonies.  It has been  thirteen years and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains. 

 The settlement is making ready
to host the fall Gathering, a time where every six months the other colonies from various parts of what was once Southern California visit for ten days of fun and reminiscence.  The Gathering begins as any other party.  A time for new loves, old friends, family, dancing and fun, but all too soon that changes.  The people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings on they can't explain, unseen forces attack several guests and friends begin to distrust friends.  When they receive news of a horrific massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that threatens to descend on the tranquil village.  

Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this darkness.  But she will face the evil along side her oldest and dearest friends, as well as an amazing new ally.  The fate of her people, the lives of her children and freedom itself rests in her hands.  Will she have the courage to do what must be done?  

This is the beginning of a journey that will change all of their lives forever.

The Gathering: Book One of the Lia Fail Chronicles is the first in a new Paranormal,  Fantasy, and Adventure Series.

"The Gathering"

S.L Dearing


Thirteen years after the last world war, the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains. The village is making ready for the fall Gathering, where the other colonies from various parts of what was once Southern California visit for ten days of fun and reminiscence. What begins as a normal Gathering, soon changes as the people of Lia Fail begin to see magic around them. Then they receive news of a horrific massacre and face a nightmare as a dark evil descends on the tranquil village. Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this evil along side her oldest and dearest friends as well as an incredible new ally as the fate of her people and the lives of her children rest in her hands. Will her new magic be strong enough to save those she loves the most?

My Review

Lia Fail means the great stone of destiny.
Just a tad bit of history for you before I give you my review. To me this was an important thing to know.

S.L. Dearing has brought so many elements to this story line. It is every

thing I love rolled into one.
Romance~Villains~Mythical Creatures~and of course Love.
In a post apocalyptic world this medieval fantasy brings other families together from different villages. This is known as "The Gathering."
Alia Stark is a headstrong queen of Lia Fail. She has 11 kids. In this book you get to know them one by one. They will captivate your heart. You will take the journey along with them and they're mother. Love will be found among many and villains are exposed.
Little do they know there is an evil force that desperately wants something from Alia. A gift that Alia doesn't even know she has hidden within her.
Alia will discover the goddess that is waiting to be unleashed.

This book is a definite must read! I can't say that enough. I was on my toes until the very end. Turning page after page with the anticipation of what would happen next. I was rooting for the characters in this book and for they're fight and will to survive.
The last few chapters literally gave me chills.
I was beyond saddened that it came to and end.
Then I brought myself back to reality and realized that S.L. Dearing is working on book 2.
I cannot wait for it and you will feel the same way.

~NARLY'S Q & A with S.L. Dearing~ 

 First of all I have a question for you that I have always wanted to know.  

1~How did the title of "The Gathering" come about? 

  S.L. Dearing: Wow, Ok, let me think... honestly, I'm not sure.  I knew I wanted there to be a lot of colonies and I wanted then to come together in one location.  Every time I pictured it I pictured a Renaissance Faire setting (well, not the Ren Faire of today, more like the Ren Faire of 15 years ago) and the fact that they gathered together must have influenced me to title the book that.  But once I knew the title, I knew that was it. And that led me to the titles of the next 3 books.  

2~The fact that I know you pretty well, tells me this is much bigger than your first release.  Tell me how this re-release is different?
S.L. Dearing: Yes, you do know me very well!  LOL!  The book actually dropped back in 2010, sometime between August and November, I don't remember specifically.  Back then I knew very little about the Facebook release parties and was just starting out, so I never had a release party.  So, A, this is my very first release party.  And B, the other item of information is that I am getting a new cover.  

My forst cover was painted by my cousin Gayleen Beyers and I love it.  It was different and unusual, but eventually I got feedback that it didn't quite show the epicness of the book or truly represent what readers saw.  So I called Rene Folsom (author and designer - Phycel Designs) and asked her to help.  I needed a POP, WOW, ZING kind of cover.  And I think that's what I got!

3~Let's give recognition to the wonderful cover artist Rene Folsom.  What did it take for the two of you to get this just right?  Details please? :)  

S.L. Dearing:  Well, it's was a lot of chatting about what I wanted.  I had envisioned something like the movie poster from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Rene was totally on board.  Then we had to look for pictures.  That's where is got tricky.  We both gelled on the kind of picture we were looking for, but trying to find it was difficult, and I can't afford a photo shoot at this stage in the game.  So we finally found the right photo of Alia.  Then it just came down to who or what elee would be on there.  I had a different idea about what I wanted, until I saw the almost completed cover and Rene far surpassed my expectations and we went in slightly different direction.  But it's amazing!

4~A little birdie has said this is the first book in a series.  Is there any truth to this rumor?
S.L. Dearing:  What's this birdie's name?  LOL! Yeah, it is the first book.  I'm currently working on the second as well as some other goodies.

5~I personally LOVED this book!!  What do you have in store for us?
S.L. Dearing:  Right now I know that there will be three more, as well as a group of sort stories I'm working on that will be eventually grouped together as a volume and they will fill in some of the time between books.  This series will pick up 2-3 years after the last book.  No cliffhangers on each book. :)  I also have 4 stand-alones in the works, a horror anthology, a very special project with Rene Folsom the Author and I'm planning a multi-genre anthology that will feature all my stories that are currently published as well as some new stories.  I might even try my hand at a mystery.

6~Last, but not least, What books or authors inspired you to become an author? 
S.L. Dearing: Wow, I've been reading for as long as I can remember.  But the books that stand out as favorites of mine are The Stand by Stephen King, The Bad Place by Dean Koontz, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien, The Weird Museum Trilogy by Robin Jarvis and the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling.  Each one of these authors and books took me to another place.  As I said, I've been writing for a while, but I realized that I wanted to write something that would do that and so I wrote a book I wanted to read.  I think one day I woke up and said "What the Hell?"  I can do this and I did.

Thank you for having me on your blog, Nat!  You're support means so much. 

A special message to S.L. Dearing....

 For those of you that do not know this.... S.L. Dearing is not only a great author, but she is my Soul Sister.  I was lucky enough to review this book for her last year around this time. I fell in love with the book before I knew her genuine and awesome heart.  We found out how much we had in common and well book lovers... the rest is Soul Sistory.... ha ha...

I love you Shannon with all of my heart and congrats on this re-release and cover reveal.  I am so blessed to be on this amazing ride with you!! xoxo

Join us October 5 from 3-7pm PST on Facebook for a grand party event.  There will be games and prizes from LOTS of authors and Swag artists.  Please come and join the fun!!

Save The Date Magnets

 About a month ago, I was offered to do a product review from
  I thought about how fun it would be to have my book page logo on something.

 They gave me the choices of: -

  25 bumper car magnets - 50 bumper car stickers - 3′ x 6′ vinyl banner - 250 Business Cards - $25 gift card for you to review whatever you’d like I couldn't help but choose the bumper car magnets.

 Why you ask? Well I would be able to utilize these much more. Not only can I give them out to friends and family, but I can also give a few away to fellow book lovers. That way it gets my page out there and seen even more. Not to mention I am a sucker for magnets! As a matter of fact, I have one on my refrigerator already!! Yes, I LOVE THEM!!!

  Let me show you the picture that was uploaded to Build A Sign of my book page. After that I will show you the final product. Then you can judge for yourself and I will tell you what I think of them.

The finished product~

So as you see there is a bit of a difference, but not much. There is more white trim showing than what I thought would be. Other than that, I really have no complaints. I believe did a fantastic job. The quality is awesome and my camera really doesn't do it justice. Even my 5 year old is loving the one on the refrigerator. I made it very clear that is the ONLY one she can play with. The rest are mama's and I absolutely love them. I will order from again and again. What a fabulous company! Thank you Build A Sign! Recommends:

From the author of the Roommate Romance series comes a breathtaking tale of a girl trying to escape her past and focus on her future, all while coping with lust at first sight when she least expects it. To be read as the first novel in the Cornerstone series, I give you the cover of Shuttered Affections...

Release Date: October 15, 2013

Shuttered Affections Cover


After escaping to a college town, Juliana Petersen was determined to put her troubled past behind her and make the most of life. She was satisfied with her current situation, or so she thought. It wasn’t until the day her new photography professor stole her parking spot that she realized there was such thing as lust at first sight. Now, she must struggle with the decision to break the rules and fall in love, or step back and let the chance of a lifetime pass her by—all while her past relationships come back to haunt her.

How many men will it take to break Julia’s hold on reality?


In an attempt to lighten the mood, I changed the subject. Uncrossing my legs, I planted my feet slightly apart in front of me and propped my elbows on my knees.

“I also brought some fruit… grapes and strawberries.” I smiled big at my attempt to be sweet.

“Ahh. Actually, grapes would be great, but I’m allergic to strawberries,” he said with a bashful look on his face.

“Oh, what a shame,” I said with a hint of seduction in my voice. “Because they’re very plump and juicy. I just love strawberries.”

“Oh, you do, do you?” he teased.

I nodded, biting my lip out of nervousness with what I was about to do.

Then, I did the most daring thing I could think of.

I grabbed one of the strawberries and slowly brought it to my mouth. I parted my lips and thrust my tongue slightly out to meet with the delicious red morsel. I bit down while sucking the juices slowly. My eyes fluttered and rolled shut as I enjoyed the delicious flavors bursting onto my taste buds. Seductively, I flicked the leftover green cap into the grass beside us, then began licking and sucking on the two fingers that were covered with the sticky juice.

After enjoying each slow chew, I opened my eyes to gaze upon a man with power and hunger in his eyes. Hunger for me.

The next thing I knew, Aiden was on his hands and knees, methodically making his way towards me.

Out of sheer instinct, I backed away while keeping my legs slightly apart and propping myself back on my arms. He continued his prowl until he was kneeling between my knees with both his hands braced beside me.

He edged closer to me, his lips hovering precariously close to mine. A sudden gasp of breath was all I could manage before our lips met.

His right hand steadied my upper back while he held himself up with his left, hovering over me. His chest pressed hot and hard against mine. Our tongues met and tangled together. I struggled for air but couldn’t pull away. He consumed me.


About the Author

Rene Folsom, author of paranormal romance and erotica, lives in Florida with her husband and three kids. She has officially diagnosed herself with creative ADD and, if it weren't for her day job as a web programmer, she would have a million and one writing projects going at once. In addition to web design, she is also a graphic artist who loves to create custom book cover designs for indie authors. She is definitely an artist at heart and would love nothing more than to be elbow deep in clay during her waking hours.

Rene believes that all fiction is based on some form of reality—otherwise we would never have the inspiration or knowledge to dream up the realistic situations we portray with our words. She is proud to say that her personal experiences have been inspirational, though perhaps not always identical to that of her fictional characters. Where reality and fantasy diverge, however, must remain her little secret…
