Someone is getting a makeover!

Someone is getting a makeover, and it is none other than the 'Soul Quest Trilogy' by author Amy Maurer Jones.  So let's have a look, shall we?  Included is the blurb for each book:


Do you remember how horrified you were about the idea of attending high school? I remember ticking off those last miserable days of my summer vacation following my eighth grade year. Maybe you don’t, maybe you were one of those people. You know who I’m talking about, people like Melissa Small, the distinguished District Attorney, Larry Small’s daughter. She’s popular, gorgeous and absolutely terrifying to someone like Liv Glyn. No, Liv is far from measuring up to the standards required to make Melissa’s crowd. She’s not even close. Liv is just a simple man’s daughter, mostly tolerated by her peers. If this isn’t depressing enough for you, stay tuned, it gets worse.

Liv was commanded with Spirit at birth by the Great Spirit, Hala. I know, it sounds crazy but it’s true. If you think it’s difficult to be a teenager, try being a teenager who was born destined to save the world from soul sucking Daevas and their mutant progeny Aengels.

There are four of them. Liv’s companions of Spirit are Laith Lightfoot, Brayan Akin and Meena Sodden. Getting back to Melissa Small, she is Laith’s step sister and is always meddling where she doesn’t belong, further complicating everything. To make matters even worse, Liv’s best friend, Jedd is apparently aware of things that are typically undetectable to ordinary humans. So, Liv is forced to deceive Jedd, the boy who has been her constant standby since the third grade, to shield him from the horrible and very dangerous truth. Did I mention that she is falling in love with him? The term awkward doesn’t even begin to cover it, trust me.

Welcome to the mess that is the life of a human Oracle.


Liv, Laith, Brayan and Meena are back with a mission and a militia for justice. The four human Oracles join forces with their spirit counter parts in Arcadia to form The Guardians of Souls. Shy has fled to Los Angeles to escape the consequences of Melissa and Jesse’s deaths and Hala, the Great Spirit, has reason to believe he is not alone. Neither the Spirits in Arcadia or the NYPD in New York City has turned up any trace of Shy since his disappearance after the tragic events played out on Valentine’s Day. 

Liv and her companions of spirit find themselves torn between the human world and Arcadia once more. Their duty as human Oracles continuously interferes and threatens the stability and safety of their friendships and romantic lives.

Get ready for all hell to break loose as Liv and her friends set out on a quest to hunt down Shy and finish him for good. This time the Spirit World means business when they find Shy playing up to his usual tricks. The odds are against Shy this time around but this may not pan out to be such a lucky break for the human Oracles. Could it be that Shy isn’t their worst enemy after all? 
Is Earth once again safe from the perils of Daevas and Aengels? Are Liv’s human friends safe or will they be baited and harmed again? 

Only the Spirits know…


In the third and final installment of The Soul Quest Trilogy the Oracles head to the Scottish Highlands in pursuit of Lefu and Etheline. When they finally catch up with the fallen spirits they are unexpectedly met by another mysterious creature, but is this magical being evil?

The spirited teens find themselves faced with loss and betrayal in this epic adventure.

Who will Liv choose to be her soul mate? Will it be Beau or Jedd? Which boy will face a future empty of his greatest desire?  Brayan will be deceived by the one person he trusts the most? Will he ever forgive his betrayer, or himself?  Laith has already lost his sister to the Daevas. Will a complication cause him to lose Drue too?  Meena will find the weight of the world submerging her deep into waters of the Loch Ness. Will she rise against it?  Last but not least, will the Oracles finally rid the Earth of Daeva's and Aengels? 

Afflictions of the soul wade deep. It's time to sink or swim. Tread carefully...

Check out this quartet of groups specifically for writers

So this post is about me, and a new experiment of mine.  My blog, promoting me . . . duh . . .  Next post I'll promote you.  Okay?  Check out the welcome info for where to send your news post info.

So, I used to belong to a bunch of writer groups.  But lately I have been dropping some because many of them were nothing but promo zones.  Not much in the way of discussion and such, mainly just promoing.  So in an effort to reduce my notifications that I had to go through, I dropped some of the groups that I found to be not so interesting.

Then I got the idea for one of these groups of mine, then some further thinking spawned the idea of a quartet of groups, addressing the 4 areas that I thought writers might most be interested in.

So here are the groups, what they are about, and their links:

Book publishing discussion group
Just for sharing questions about publishing, and sharing links that contain helpful info about publishing books.

Book marketing discussion group
Just for discussing marketing and promoting your book, and the best ways to reach the readers with your efforts.  Like the other group above, only links that contain helpful info about marketing books are allowed.

Writers chat zone
Just a place for writers to gather and shoot the breeze and chat.  Do stuff like share frustrations, share funny pics and stuff.

The great writer's promo zone
This is the place to share your promo links, and to find links others are promoting. Also check out files for lists on the following:  editing, formatting, book covers, publicity, publishers, book reviewers

Hope you'll drop by and check out my quartet of groups.
