Tori Farrell is finally on the path that leads to a bright future. Raised to be an assassin, she lived in a world consisting of drugs, sex, violence and murder. Gaining her freedom, and discovering her true identity, she has reconciled the life was born to have with the one she fought so hard to flee. Managing to hold on to her soul mate, she is pushing forward, refusing to allow the fear to hold her back any longer.

Taking her place in her brother’s band, Tori faces new challenges. Learning to live the life of a rock star seems easy enough, and she quickly gets a handle on what she holds most dear. Soon enough, the tables are turned, with the realization that the FBI has merely taken to the shadows, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Change in posting policies

Hello everyone,

I'm Jacqueline Driggers, and I am The Book News Journal.  I'm it, the whole staff.  And I must confess that I'm spread thin now days.  I have to put a premium on my time and what I spend it on.


So having said this, I want to make the following announcements:

Date specific posts are out
Going forward, for right now, I won't be signing up for any blog tour posts that require me to post on a specific date.  I enjoy doing them, but I'm so busy right now, I just don't have the time for them.  I know that most usually it doesn't take that much time, but it's time I don't have to spare.

Posts with no specific date and html provided are in
If you're an author or a blog tour host, and you have a post for me that I can post whenever I want, and you can give me the html, I'd be glad to post it.  But I don't have the time for emails from blog tour hosts wanting to know where their post is at.

Guest posts are most definitely in
If you would like to do a guest post in my blog, that doesn't have a specific date requirement, I'd be more than glad to post it as long as it is related to books or publishing or writing.  Just visit my contact form and send me your idea:
The Book News Journal - submit a story - contact form

Author interviews
These are something I have done here in the past, and that I may resurrect in 2015.  This is something I'll have to think about.

Cover reveals and book release posts
Like I said above, I'm glad to do these, but they can't have a specific date that you want me to post on.  And I'll probably do no more than 3 of these a month.

In conclusion,
I hope all this information helps you out.  Thanks for reading.

Cover reveal -- Cutlass by Ashley Nixon

We are so excited about this new cover!!

Author Ashley Nixon held a launch party about a month ago to show off her new book.
Here is the old cover:


Synopsis: Notorious pirate Barren Reed has one thing on his mind: Revenge against the man who killed his father. So kidnapping his enemy's fiancĂ© seems a perfect plan…until he actually does it. 

Larkin Lee is more than a pretty face and fiancé to a powerful man. Her fierce personality is enough to make any pirate want to push her overboard.

But when the King of the Orient comes to Barren with a task—to find the Bloodstone, a powerful gem thought only to exist in legend, Barren sees another opportunity to destroy his enemy. Together, Barren, Larkin and a crew of pirates set off to find the stone, only to discover it caused the death of Barren’s own mother and Larkin’s, too. As his strongest allies turn into his greatest enemies, and the life of the girl he kidnapped becomes more important than he ever dreamed, Barren’s quest for revenge becomes a fight to save the Orient.

The book is Young Adult high fantasy. It's not just about pirates, there are elves and magic and all that fun stuff!  

We absolutely loved this cover and did not think it could get any better!
Well, it did!!
Ashley is amazing! Let's introduce you to her:

Author Bio: Ashley was born and raised in Oklahoma, where the wind really does sweep down the plains, and horses and carriages aren't used as much as she'd like. She has a Bachelor's in English Writing and a Master's in Library Science and Information Technology. When she's not writing she's either working out or pretending she's Sherlock Holmes. Her obsession with writing began after reading the Lord of the Rings in the eighth grade. Since then, she's loved everything Fantasy--resulting in an unhealthy obsession with the 'geek' tab on Pinterest, where all things awesome go.


Ok are you ready to see the new cover?

Here it is:



What do you think??? We absolutely adore it!!

We would love to hear your comments though! Please post them below!

The release of Icebreaker by Tiffinie Helmer


Icebreaker
by Tiffinie Helmer
Series: Wild Women of Alaska, #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2014


Join the Facebook Party on Wednesday, November 12th from 7:30pm-9:30pm to celebrate the release of Icebreaker.


He'll have to turn up the heat in order to melt her heart…

Logan Slade made the biggest mistake of his life eight years ago when he left his high school sweetheart at the altar and reported to the military. Now he's returned home and ready to do whatever it takes to win her back. But Trixie Frost isn't the same starry-eyed girl who believed he could do no wrong. Now she's stronger, independent, and more fascinating than any other woman he's ever met.

Trixie has spent the last eight years trying to forget Logan while devoting her life to the quirky town of North Pole, Alaska. She's in a good place, dating a nice man and ready to take the next step in their relationship until Logan walks into her bar and turns her life upside down again.

This sexy, determined, military version of Logan is a bigger threat to her than the boy she'd loved to distraction. She can't let him chip away at the protective wall of ice erected around her heart. Because there's no way she'll be able to put the pieces back a second time.




"I don't want you here," Trixie said.

"Too bad," Logan said. "I'm not leaving."

"Why are you so adamant about that? I know you, Logan. You leave, remember? It's what you're good at."

"Once. I left once. I'm not leaving again."

"Your 'once' was eight years long."

"I know. It took me a while to understand what I really wanted. You are what I want."

"Well, you can't have me. I'm not available."

A chill slid over him. "You married to someone else?"

"I don't have to be with someone to be unavailable," she finished.
