Over-used Update Title Post

I often post this because I’m dreadful at my blog.

I’m dreadful at keeping this site afloat. For that I sincerely apologize. And no excuses are going to change that fact so let’s cut that bullshit out right now, shall we?

2016 was a rough ass year. Don’t even try to deny what we all know to be true. It was especially rough for me. The year previous I had only managed to wiggle out Hexed Hearts,  and that was mess too. 2016 was a dry year for me as well, I was around doing a few box sets here and there. But my big projects of the year was revamping the Rebirth series, and getting Hunter’s Heart edited.

Neither an easy feat let me tell you! I did manage to sneak a novella out there for you all. I am having a go at my Mercenaries, they are my fun writes. The ones that take me about a month to write *when i was on a strict word count* and just easy quick reads. I’m expanding on those for 5 books, after that we shall see.

So now the new rebirth series covers and insides have been revealed. Hunter’s Heart is sitting on amazon on preorder and of course i have two Merc novellas out, 2017 hasn’t been a bad start, right?

I’m hoping to keep that momentum rolling. I’m shoulders deep into edits for Burned and working on writing the fourth Merc book. I have a mini-surprise going to be included in Contracted (book three of the Merc series) since it had been recently published through a box set.

So whoa, lots to dump on you after a year of silence. I say we all scrub 2016 from our memories and move right along as if it never happened 😉 *sorry to those that had an abnormally good year* (but the rest of us didn’t so deal)

I’ll say this every time. I will really, really try to get better at posting here. I am going to try for a monthly newsletter. But the best way to keep up on my information is through Facebook, if I’m not posting there then my PA is, and if she isn’t then we  are both dead and someone please save us.

So how was this as a heartfelt apology?

I did update my “books” section, new very vague dates have been posted along with some new titles.

I won’t promise to rock this website/blog because we all know I won’t but I’m definitely going to give it a good shot!

Release Day Blitz: Underground by Janelle Stalder





Love isn’t something you find.
Love is something that finds you.

Phoenix has spent her whole life fighting. All she’s ever wanted was to return the world to a peaceful state, and bring down the New World Order. But now she finds herself in a different sort of battle. No longer set in the streets of New Berlin, the fighting has moved beneath them, in a vicious underground fighting ring run by outlaws bent on causing trouble. And if that isn’t hard enough, she’s stuck with the one person who loves to fight more than she does – Trent McKay. Now the race is on to get out of their new prison and back home – before they end up killing each other.

Or worse – fall in love.

GR Link:
It is better to be seen and not heard…

A firm believer of observing and listening rather than adding to the noise surrounding her, Pixie has always been the quiet one out of the Archers. Her intelligence and quiet confidence makes her the perfect choice to join Garrett, Tyler and Missy on their mission to get their friends back. But when she enters the underground network run by Sebastian Black, she suddenly finds her voice. Bastian rattles her like no other, breaking her silence. He sees and hears her more than anyone has in her entire life. But how can she trust a man like him? Now it’s a battle of wills, between what her head tells her, and what her heart insists.

My Reviews:
5 Stars
every freaking time….
Savor this one becca, take your time becca, nope never happens

These books demand to be devoured and boy did i feast

God dammit im both pissed and elated.

Pissed because there werent more pages, elated because I mean come on, its Janelle freaking Stalder!
This woman writes crack and i don’t think she realizes it

Alright, alright here is the scoop, we are well into the series now, so you know there will be spoilers from the previous reads but not this one

Last we left Phoenix and Trent, they were in a shit load of trouble. And these two spitfires really shouldn’t be left alone 😉 or should they, actually, yes they should, always cause *fans self*
I thought for sure that my favorite couple would never change from Tyler and Missy because well Scott, and Missy is like my type of girl, the silent strength kind, but these two omg. i loved the heat, the fire between them. The chemistry was hotter than hell.

The story will have you on the edge of your seat, shaking with anticipation

Things might finally be looking up for the crew, until they don’t you will have to read to get the specifics, but here is what i will tell you. As always Janelle creates a brilliant new story for us to lose ourselves in, the couples that form in this book, and the beginnings of others will make you BEG for the next book i know i am preparing 😉
but seriously is it a thing to sit outside an author’s house and just watch them write the book? can i do that? i will do it. Don’t doubt me.

So obviously i enjoyed the book. I really think this was perfectly paced, left readers wanting more at the right exact moments. The book was fantastic, i really cant say more than that. If you have come this far into this series you know its worth every word.

New alliances, new sort of enemies, new developments! It will definitely keep you tight in its grip until you don’t even realize you accidentally glance over to the next page and see the dreaded words: “THE END” *not like that happened to anyone or anything…. 😐 …..

I cannot wait for the next book in the series, especially that little novella that is suppose to be coming out very berry spoon too because #neeeeeddd and my hope is to see a little more extended from this one? maybe? god i need it…. okay and that concludes this review.

wait no.

Read this series you won’t regret a moment of it

5 stars
I have always been intrigued by Pixie, and this novella definitely needs to be read AFTER Underground, and possibly this review…I may or may not spoil tiny things from Underground on accident only because it relates to this novella.
So like Underground i DEVOURED this like a beast, it was kinda scary. Anyways, Jesus 😉 aka  Sebastian isn’t all that he seems to be. Evil underlord of even more dastardly underground fighting ring, where only one person comes out alive?! Oh yes he seems almost bad as a Ludwig…..well if you know anything about me, you know i love Ludwig and I am utterly intrigued by his character, so it shows to be my pattern i need to know everything about this new baddie on the playing field
And ooohhh boy does Janelle deliver YET AGAIN!!!  There is so much more to this man than meets the eye, he has QUITE  few little secrets as we find out in the end of Underground. The relationship between Pixie and Sebastian *because its a sexy name and we should never shorten it* is on fire!! I thought that Phoenix and Trent were the hottest, most explosive yet but nah i was wrong. These two are ON FIRE seriously, *fans self 😉 *
This was a delightful add on story and while it doesn’t move the series much farther it does help answer questions we might have during Underground, and solidifies that Janelle has a crazy amazing way of writing this insanely unique characters. I’m so in awe of her skill, and she made me fall for the man i should hate, but we know we can’t hate him now.
And Pixie, what a treat she was. She had always been this little mysterious girl that just blew things up but i knew there was more to her story and I was soooo sooooo excited to see her story finally! Yay!!! 😀
So to wrap this up, this was a delightful add on to Underground and really helps give us a full rounded view of these books in the series and I cannot wait for the next books in the series!

Cover Reveal: Deciding Love by Janelle Stalder

Chloe Morgan had a pretty simple life, until her father moved them to a new town and a new school for her senior year. Learning to adapt isn’t easy, especially after finding out she has an older brother she never knew about. All Chloe wants to do is get through the year in one piece. Except things get even harder when her new friend’s older brother, Kyle Briggs, keeps ruining all her well laid plans. It’s a love/hate relationship. She’s just not sure where the emphasis lies – on the hate…or the love?

Spotlight: Grimnirs, A Runes Novel by USA Today Bestselling Author Ednah Walters


One lost love.


One lost best friend.


One hot soul reaper.

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.

My Totally Utterly Un-shocking Revelation

So today was my day off from my day-job.
It’s one of the days I decide, I am going to write a shit-ton and just get this much farther into my book.
Unfortunately last night I had a craving so bad to read a book series that I fell in love with when I first was review-blogging.
I recommended it to my PA and a few weeks ago I was just thinking about it, constantly. Like a random weird
book hang-over from almost over two years ago.
It demanded to be remembered.

I have a point I swear!

Last night I was far too tired to write so I was like well I will open up this book and read it for a bit.
Then I will sleep, wake up early, and start to write. For all day. And get so much done.

Hahaha about that….

I stayed up super late reading the book instead. Woke up stupid early just to finish it.
*yes i book I already read, that I knew how it ended*

So as I finished up the craving to read the rest of the series again hit me like a ton of bricks.
And while flipping between the wonderful world of the facebook and reading, and keeping my netflix going in the background I was talking with some friends

I kid you not when asked what I was up to
my response was this: being a bad author

I felt terribly gulity because I didn’t have a finish project under my belt *meaning a current wip* and yet here I was thinking that I didn’t have the right to just relax and veg out and read for a day

I know right? I know what you are all thinking, how dare I think that I not want to write, or even try to write on my day off. What is wrong with me?
Or maybe you are thinking, nah girl you deserve a day

Well here is a little tibit about me: I sadly feel completely and utterly behind right now. I wanted to have three books out this year, HH was supposed to be done in like April? Date changed so many times even I forgot. Anyhoops the point of this rant is that I feel incredibly behind, and letting each one of my readers down. by not trying to get words down every day and finishing this books up

Well after my messaging my friend and trust me they tell me this all the time is that i can take breaks that, i am allowed that

Today was sort of my eye-opening like…oh holy fuck I can.

I work full time as it is, at a very demanding job, im staring at computer for most of the day, dealing with customers, my co-workers and overall its exhausting.

I love writing, I do. but its also a lot of work and right now im trying to push out Burned because that is what i want to release next, I really, really do. But when your muse, little voices, or characters whatever you want to call it, are pulling you in a different direction sometimes all you can do is go along. That is for a different post though

okay so what I decided.
It’s okay to take a break.
My author friends, my blogger friends, my reader friends, my other industry friends
My huge revelation that will change no one’s lives is this:


It’s okay.
You’re human.
You need a break.
Just like the snickers commercials says you need to eat.
I am telling you, you need to take a break sometimes and even if you are feeling behind
Even if you are feeling behind and you know that you need to get work done. Take a break.

So now that my great revelation that everyone already knew about has been revealed
That is what I did with my day. I vegged. I read.
it was fucking amazing
not even going to lie.

Read on my loves
