12 Days of Christmas

On the 10th Day of Christmas …

I can’t believe we’re already on the 10th day, can you?  I’m still trying to get all of the presents wrapped before we head out to all of our Christmas Eve events tomorrow.

Today, we’re highlighting a new release by Victoria Pinder.  I hope you like Sci Fi and Fantasy.

TheZostraAffair500x700The Zoastra Affair just released this weekend.

A hundred years from now, Earth has trading partners with alien beings, mostly humanoid. However, going into space brought forth an unknown enemy who attacks Earth at will.

The Zoastra is part of the Earthseekers, an organization originally designed to go into space. Its new mission is to find Earth’s enemies.

Ariel is stuck on a Victorian planet and steals Grace’s body and life to get off the planet. Grace must get her body back before Ariel bonds with Grace’s husband, Peter. Then there is Cross, the man on a mission to find those who killed his family. Ariel is attracted to Cross, but she’s stolen someone’s life.

For today’s contest, we’re stepping out of the Christmas theme a bit. Tell me what your all time favorite book is.  Tell me what you look for in a book, despite the genre.  Tell me what makes you pick up a book by an author you’ve never heard of – what makes you give them a chance? You’ll earn an entry for each piece of information you share.

The winner of today’s contest will receive a free eBook copy of The Zoastra Affair.  Spread the word, share with a friend.  We only have 2 days left until Christmas!

Yesterday’s winner is Jill Collins.  Be looking at your email in-box this evening for your Starbucks gift card.

Merry Christmas!

  1. This sounds like an interesting book. WOW I have so many favorites. It’s really hard to pick one. But one of the first Romance books that I read when I was like 11 or 12 hooked me. It was the Texas Series by Sandra Brown. I love just about anything with Romance or Mystery. Just no horror.

  2. Wow! Thank you so very much, Cynthia. I’m so looking forward to getting the email with my Starbucks gift card! Just in case I miss you ~ please have a safe and very Merry Christmas.

  3. My all-time favorites used to be split between the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Dragonriders of Pern trilogy…I would read both every year for quite a few years. Now, there are so many other great ones that I love getting lost in. I will try out a new author if I am caught by the blurb…I usually read an excerpt to make sure that the writing is smooth because sometimes the story itself falls a bit short of what is in the blurb. I look for a story that I can feel for the characters, that they are basically good people caught in tough situations but that good triumphs in the end. I don’t like horror either and too much gore and violence will definitely turn me off. I should also mention that I tend to like longer stories, somewhere around 300-400 pages…longer than that tends to get cumbersome for me and shorter tends not to last me quite long enough sometimes.
