She longs for some other way,

they both could stay

lost inside forever

that now echoes yesterday.

What if the love of your life was on the other side?

Music has always captivated Colbie, and she was sure that music would escort her to her destiny. But then, lying on a cold operating table, Colbie’s heart stopped, and her life ended. Then, something miraculous happened. In an inex-plicable new world, Colbie comes face to face with Michael and she realized that she has always heard the music.

What if you had to choose between love and life?

When she wakes up in the sterile hospital room to a painful recovery, she longs for the peace she abandoned when she returned to Earth. Back in her own world, Colbie is struggling with fate as she tries to once again, hear the music.

Will fate and love strike the right chords for Michael and Colbie?


Born and reared in Mississippi, I love the South and all the charms it borders provide.

My debut novel, The Point, has received raving reviews on Amazon and Goodreads worldwide. I have been humbled and overwhelmed by the outpouring support I’ve received. I am excited about the release of my latest novel, Michael’s Heart, and hope it is celebrated as enthusiastically as my last.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 33 years on our farm, doing anything with my three adult children, and playing with my amazing grands. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends, writing music, community theater and am always plotting my next novel with coffee in hand.

One of my favorite quotes is by Douglas Everett.

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some that face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”

I am a firm believer that everyone has a dream placed inside them, and life is too short not to make that dream a reality.

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman – Review by Maura Harper

Hoosier DadHoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author and I will look for other stories she has written. I find her style of writing to be easy and enjoyable.

This is a second chance tale that has humor and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It flows well from beginning to end and has a decent balance of emotions and experiences.

Great kids and friends as well as local town people all add color to this story.

I recommend this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hoosier Dad is an awesome contemporary romance by Elizabeth Seckman. Before reading this, I had never read any of this author’s work, but now I will definitely be reading more. I loved it and would definitely recommend it to others, especially if you enjoy a second chance romance.
Approaching her 30th birthday and with yet another disastrous relationship behind her, attorney Sarah Andrews decided to move back home to Dodd. One of the first people she meets is Richland (Rich) Cooper, the man who broke her heart. Ideally, she would like to never see him again but Rich needs a lawyer to help him keep custody of his 2 daughters from his evil ex-wife (who at one point had been Sarah’s friend.
Spending more and more time together, and Sarah falling in love with his 2 daughters, Rich is determined to win Sarah back. I loved the interaction between Rich and Sarah, Sarah trying so hard to resist his charms when deep down she still loves him. Rich’s 2 daughters Stacey and Kari were adorable and added so much to the story. You gotta love a cute kid in a romance story!
Of course the path to true love never runs smooth and there are so many obstacles in their way, mainly Rich’s ex-wife Jess and the local Doc who has his eye set on Sarah for himself.
Well deserving of the 5 star rating!

Obsessed (Lila Casey Series Book 1) by J Collins – Review by Emily Walsh

Obsessed: Lila Casey Book 1 (Lila Casey Series)Obsessed: Lila Casey Book 1
By: J. Collins
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Obsessed (Lila Casey Series Book 1) by J Collins was a pretty okay read that had me smiling, annoyed and just got me in all the good fun feels.

This book was such a joy to read that I had it pretty much read in one sitting. As I said it’s fun, light hearted, and has some pretty good chuckle moments. I’ve read my fair share of vampire books, and I always love it when there’s a new spin on the lore. This author did a great job of making this read fresh and enjoyable. The romance was quick, but not overpowering, it flowed nice and once the other vampires started showing up, the story found solid footing and took off.

I will say that our MC Lila was a little hard for me to like at the start. She seemed a little immature for her age, and it was annoying. She did get better as the story when on, but if it wasn’t for Adam (our sexy vamp) then I don’t think I would have liked her at all, and might even have not wanted to finish the book. Other elements like detail and the overall storytelling was a major draw for me, and helped with the unlikeable MC. But as I have said she does get better as the story goes on, I just wish she wasn’t so, eyerolly at the start.

Overall this story is fantastically good, it’s has that quirky feel that just keeps you engaged and turning the pages. I’m definitely going to be following this series, as I believe that it’s going to be something epic. So yes, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Hoosier DadHoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman is a contemporary romance book with loveable characters and a great story line to boot.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was really taken with her writing style. She effortlessly draws you in and makes you fall instantly in love with the characters she has created. Sarah and Rich were so clearly made for each other and they were the type of characters that you really get behind.
I loved the story as well. I liked the fact that it was the father fighting for his kids rather than the typical story of the mother doing so. It gave it an edge to the book that you don’t always see. I was also really taken with the cover of this book. Even if I hadn’t decided to read it anyway I think the cover would have made me pause long enough to give it a try.
This is a great book and one that I can highly recommend. I am looking forward to exploring more of Elizabeth Seckman’s work in the future.

Sarah Andrews is one smart cookie. She’s a top-notch attorney, educated at Stanford and freshly fired from one the best legal firms in Indiana. Her love/win record is 0-3 and as she approaches her thirtieth birthday, she decides she needs a quiet, safe place to regroup. She decides to go home to Dodd.

But Dodd, Indiana is far from safe once she comes face-to-face with Richland Conrad Cooper. Rich and Sarah go way back to high school. Rich was teen-girl kryptonite—athletic, charming…persuasive—and Sarah was not immune. She fell hard, certain she’d found true love. But it turned out to be nothing more than the first of her love tries and fails.

She thought time had shored up her defenses, but one look at Rich makes her heart do flip flops. It’s like the moment where unrequited love gets a do-over, the only problem is…Rich doesn’t remember who the hell she is.

That hurt, and no matter how hard Rich tries to make up for that initial faux pas, Sarah won’t forget. She has learned—if a guy steals your heart, breaking his is quid pro quo.

Only when Rich is served with a custody challenge of his two daughters does Sarah call a truce. Working together, Rich can’t help but totally fall for her. She’s cold and rude, forcefully pointing out their differences and his flaws every chance she gets. But the heart wants what the heart wants, so Rich tries even harder to convince her she isn’t meant for any other guy, but him.


Elizabeth is a mom, a wife, and the caretaker of far too many pets, all of whom her children swore they’d take care of. But they went off to college leaving fur babies in their place. She is a multi-published author of women’s fiction and romance. She is a contributor for the Really Real Housewives of America blog, a great spot to find cheats for all things home related. She is also an admin for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.

A fairytale retelling in a land of magic and war, see Cinderella like you’ve never seen her before.

As Captain, Wren is sworn to protect the soldiers she leads into battle, which includes preventing a potential massacre in an upcoming campaign that could mean the end of the war in Heros. But defying orders from her Lord could mean a noose around her neck…

If she gets caught, of course.

Accompanied by men and women willing to accept the risk, Wren knows they need a miracle to overpower the sorceress who controls the magical creatures surrounding the city of Eius—one grand enough to win Sortis the victory they’ve been after since the War of Giants began.

There’s always a price to be had where magic is involved, though. A price she doesn’t realize until it’s too late.

One that might just cost Wren her life.

The Embers We Seek is a serial series, meaning a new episode of 8-15,000 words will be published in the last full week of every month. Cinderella’s tale will be completed in ten episodes.


Acacia K. Parker has never been the shy one. With her father having served in the Air Force for twenty years, she’s enjoyed homes in many different states, as well as an eight-year stint in Germany (and no, she doesn’t speak German, even though she really wishes she did). The odd encounters with various strangers and places morphed her brain from normal to quite unnatural, and what better way to tame the voices in her head than to become a writer?

Oh, and she’s an artist, too, although getting their faces down on paper only shuts them up for so long (but it certainly helps).

When she isn’t falling prey to the voices, Acacia enjoys jamming out to her favorite Spotify playlists, spending time with her husband, drinking wine, and hanging out with her two writing buddies, Boomer and Sookie (think eighty-pound Golden Retrievers).

It’s not easy being the worst vampire ever.

Tandi may have been killed by ghouls, but now she’s a brand new vampire. And she’s determined to be the best.

But determination can’t take her very far when she won’t even kill a deer for its blood. Not to mention she’s not as subservient to her master—the Prince of Vampires—as she should be. Despite him being a dead hot guy, and powerful enough to have broken free of the Queen’s influence.

Little does she know that the Queen of Vampires wants her Prince back, and Tandi’s about to get caught in the middle. Just as well the Prince is unusually protective of her, even if she is trying to hide her developing feelings for him. Because when they’re invited to a wedding, and the Queen will plan Tandi’s death there. And the crown-wearing vamp has several ways to do it.

But Tandi is full of surprises herself.

When a disreputable cat turns up promising to help, together with the gorgeous Prince they hatch a plan. It’s dangerous. Maybe even deadly. But if everything goes just right, they might just have a chance.

Of course, when does anything go just right? Maybe being killed by ghouls wasn’t such a bad thing after all.


Brandi Elledge lives in the South, where even the simplest words are at least four syllables. She has a husband that she refuses to upgrade…because let’s face it he is pretty awesome and two beautiful children that are the light of her life.
