2016_08_26 Eden Butler picture

Welcome Eden Butler!                                                                   Dream big. Work harder.

Eden does both. She dreams big and chases after those dreams by working hard every day. You can feel her dedication and love of writing through the settings and characters in her books. Pick one up today and you will understand.

**** A moment of prayers and positive thoughts for our friend. I’m sure you all recall the recent flooding in Louisiana. Well, Eden was caught up in that mess. Here’s hoping for a good end result.

I’ve Seen You Naked and Didn’t Laugh: A Geeky Love Story

Eden’s newest release is up for Pre-Order on Amazon. This book sounds hilarious. I cannot wait to get my order!2016_08_26 Eden Butler - I've Seen You Naked... cover 2

Raine Quinn was a huge disappointment to her haters. She wasn’t supposed to make it out of Waco, TX. She wasn’t supposed to land even one acting job. And she sure as hell wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her best friend.

Will Callahan liked to call himself the younger, hotter Shatner, minus the ham acting and distracting toupee. He loved everything comics, he loved playing the hero of the beloved, defunct space western, AURA and he loved his best damn friend, Raine Quinn.

Raine and Will shot up the Hollyweird ranks together. They became stars, Geek legends and over the years, family. But one night, with the meddling of their dearly departed friend, too many shots and too much time reminiscing, Raine and Will cross a line…and it’s one they can’t jump back over.

A little about Eden:

Eden Butler is an editor and writer of Fantasy, Mystery and Contemporary Romance novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum.

When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football.

She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.

The bad news? Morgan Daniel’s wolf is out of control. The good news? There’s a treatment. She just has to get a potion from a lizard shifter witch–without looking into the witch’s eyes. Easy, right? But when the witch puts a spell on her younger brother, Morgan has to do the witch’s bidding to save him.

What’s your crazy addiction?

blog addiction funnyIn my newsletter, Taylor’s Tidbits I am talking about crazy addictions. You know, the funny, quirky, insane things that we MUST do every day. To keep our sanity. What are some of your crazy addictions? Facebook, soda, chocolate, water, Pinterest… I must admit, mine are a little goofy, but I will fess up to two of them. Chapstick and water. No, sorry people, wine is not one of my addictions. I love my wine, but – not addicted. (Okay, maybe I am a little bit addicted.)

Water – If you know me, you know I don’t go anywhere without a bottle of water. Hubby keeps me stocked with cases at a time. Good thing water is good for you because I drink that stuff all the time. When I clean out my car, there are empty, half-empty, and full bottles everywhere.

Chapstick – Okay, I know I am not the only person addicted to covering their lips with this. What is it with those little tubes?! They are everywhere. And I am not particular on the flavor. Just give it to me!

I’m really curious what some of your addictions are. Please share!

Love life – even with your crazy addictions.

**** Disclaimer – I am only referring to the fun, quirky addictions. Not the life altering ones. Yes, I know addictions are a serious matter. Alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. The list goes on. I’ve experienced some of these first-hand. They hurt the people they affect, and they tear up families. Let’s never forget those that have serious addictions. They need our help, prayers, and thoughts! ****

The Saints of the Lost and Found – T.M Causey

Toni McGee Causey

I first learned about this author when she did an interview on Authors On The Air Global Radio Network. I immediately downloaded her book and began reading. Did I enjoy it? My review answers that question.

Dark Cajun Tale with Non-stop Twists. Review by Taylor Anne

Lost toys, shoes, jewelry, jobs, soulmates, children. If it is lost, Avery Broussard has the ability to see it. Her visions have been a part of her as long as she can remember. They bring happiness, and heartache. And have led her to run away from those she loves. When she is urged to return home for her brother, Latham’s, sake, she has to make a tough decision. Does she go back to Saint Michaels to protect her brother, which will put her own self in imminent danger? Or does she continue to run, trying to find herself?

Toni McGee Causey’s writing is phenomenal. Her characters are true to life, as is the setting of the story. The complex depth of each character alludes to the expertise of the author. She uses superb word power to pull the reader in.

Avery captured my heart with her own. I got lost in her anxiety, fears, loss, and her mind. A mind which took me from the present to the past. I toggled between her conscious and her subconscious. Through each experience, Avery fought for justice and truth. The intricate story line kept me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails throughout the entire book. There was never a dull moment. The twists just didn’t stop. Each one uniquely woven into Avery, Jack, and Latham’s world.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced, suspenseful, menacing, intense emotional read. You will certainly be satisfied! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blurb:

Avery Broussard has the curse of seeing lost things (and make no mistake about it, it is a curse). Missing belongings and beloved pets, lost love and loved ones—she sees it all. Long ago, that curse destroyed her own chance at true love, causing her to flee her Louisiana home, vowing never to return. She’s kept that promise too, until a phone call from her estranged grifter father forces her hand. Her big brother is dying, and she may be his last remaining hope.
Avery wants nothing more than to rescue her brother, but doing so pulls her into a labyrinth of lies and deceit rooted in her own lost love and her family’s twisted history. It doesn’t help that a little girl has gone missing, and the abduction is tied to a killer Avery failed to help the FBI catch. With no time to spare, Avery realizes her curse might well be the only thing she can trust. Is it too much to hope that she might save her brother and find the missing girl before she becomes the killer’s next victim?

~~~~~~~~ You will enjoy this as much as I did.

Till next time – Love, hugs, and kisses – Taylor
