$50 Amazon gift card & sci-fi author PTL Perrin

Our planet is full of mysteries.

How did these things, these creatures get here? Who made them, or how did they evolve? Questions like these have plagued P.T.L. Perrin since childhood, and it’s only recently that she has felt the nod from our Creator to explore them in writing.

P.T.L. Perrin is writing books that she would have loved reading when her family didn’t have television. Coming back to present day, she wrote the TetraSphere series as pure entertainment, and as a way to answer some of the unanswerable questions about our universe.


What if there are inhabited planets interacting with Earth? What happened to Atlantis? What if the fate of our planet were in the hands of four young people, each with special abilities, and each with his or her own struggles?

Pick up Terra’s Call, book #1 in the TetraSphere series, and let P.T.L. know if you enjoy reading it!

A Cherokee prophecy, escalating natural disasters and strange sounds, mark the approaching end of planet Terra, our Earth.

When Jewel Adams leaves home school for high school in her senior year, she discovers she’s not the only one with special abilities. Jewel, the Fletcher twins and Storm Ryder share a destiny as the only ones who might avert the coming disaster, but will their enhancements be enough to save Terra? Jewel sees auras and through disguises.

Sky is a strong empath and her twin brother Pax, the only one who can calm her, is able to smell pheromones and other scent molecules better than a bloodhound.

Storm’s telekinesis seems to be the most practical gift, but can he control it during one of his rages?

Will an ancient enmity between two star systems cause their mission to fail? Are they willing to take the chance? If they don’t, Terra will self-destruct and mankind will be destroyed.


So who wants to win something?! P.T.L. Perrin and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Amazon gift card & Summer Lane's "Running With Wolves"

I believe yesterday was the last day of summer, so how 'bout we cling to it and enjoy a book written by Summer Lane? How fitting a name...

Summer Lane is the #1 bestselling author of nearly two dozen thrilling books, including the phenomenal bestselling Collapse Series, Zero Trilogy and Collapse: The Illustrated Guide.


Running With Wolves releases TODAY and is a romantic adventure set amidst the gritty and awe-inspiring setting of Alaska during the last great Gold Rush.

He spilled their blood. Now, she’s out for revenge.

​Jenna Renee is a woman wronged. When her adoptive parents are brutally murdered by an outlaw named Conroy Parker and his gang of thugs, they take everything from her: her family, her happiness, and her money.

Determined to bring Conroy and his boys to justice, she acquires the help of a gruff but dangerous gun-slinging United States Marshal, Jeremiah Black, to help her hunt Conroy down.

But there is more to Alaska than meets the eye.

The cold touch of the arctic winter is dangerous, and the corruption of Conroy Parker and his comrades runs deep. The tundra is unforgiving, and so are the wolves. Nothing is as it seems.

If the wilderness doesn’t kill Jenna, the pack will. Revenge comes with a price, and so does love. There will be no mercy... only the hunt.

Still curious about Running With Wolves and the author? Here are a few questions and answers from the previous interview with Summer...

What was your honeymoon in Hawaii like?
So much fun! After a crazy year of writing and planning the wedding, I was relieved to get away. We honeymooned on the Big Island, in Kona. My favorite part about Hawaii was the tropical side of the island, over near Hilo. The botanical gardens and Rainbow Falls actually made appearances in one of my books because I was so astounded with the natural, exotic beauty of the tropics. Also, I’m pretty sure my husband and I spent most of our time in restaurants – we ate so much amazing food in Hawaii! We’re returning to Hawaii for our anniversary (although it will be on a different island this time – Maui!). I can’t wait!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Write what you love and write what you know. Less is more. Write freely but edit ruthlessly. Don’t be afraid to take risks, and to keep it real.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. It’s one of those books that changed my life. It opened my eyes to the magnitude of Man’s real and terrible impact on the wilderness. The character of Buck is so flawlessly brought to life by Jack London, that I can tell you I have never been more touched by any other character – human or not. It’s really breathtaking. I highly recommend that everybody should read it at least once.

$50 Amazon gift card and the return of author Samie Sands!

Need a bit of suspense and terror in your next book? If you missed the previous feature of this author on my blog, then consider this zombie lover.

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


Author Samie Sands has a three-part zombie series called AM13 Outbreak. The second book called Forgotten, shown above, kicks zombie butt as good as the first book called Lockdown. Forgotten continues the story of the AM-13 virus and is told from three different points of view.

All three books in the zombie book series are available now, and you can get them free on Kindle today!

Every attempt to contain the deadly AM13 virus has failed, leaving humanity on the brink of extinction…

The plague is spreading out of control with no cure in sight. Then the government announces its new plan—a sanctuary in an area completely untouched by the infected—as long as you can get there alive and unscathed.

Ethan Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making every day more hellish than it already is…

Ethan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.

Alyssa Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to challenge her zombie killing skills…

Still curious about the author? Here are a couple interview questions with Samie from the previous feature...


What inspires you to write?
For my first book, I wrote the book I wanted to read. I'd read a lot of book based in the zombie apocalypse and I found that the characters were always very capable. It made me wonder what would happen with an ordinary person trying to survive. Leah in Lockdown is normal, girl next door type without any skills to survive. Sometimes she's flawed and she doesn't always make the right choice, but that makes her more realistic.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
From the first idea to the finished book, I would say it takes me about a year. I feel like I have to do a few drafts to get it right, and I need to leave a gap in between each draft so I can create some distance to help me spot plot holes. Sometimes I get so involved in the story and the characters that I forget the reader doesn't know as much as me about the worlds I've created!

What are you working on right now?
Right now, I've just signed a contract for a completely different book. It's called Lottie Loves and it's very different from the zombie apocalypse in the Am13 Outbreak series. That isn't done though, I will be writing more!


So who wants to win something?! Like our last feature, Samie Sands and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$50 Amazon gift card & romance author Kim Carmichael

If you're in need of a book to spice up the fall season, how 'bout romance?

Kim Carmichael began writing when her love of happy endings inspired her to create her own. A Southern California native, Kim's contemporary romance combines Hollywood magic with pop culture to create quirky characters set against some of most unique and colorful settings in the world.


With a weakness for designer purses, bad boys, and techno geeks, Kim married her own computer whiz after he proved he could keep her all her gadgets running.

A multi-published author, Kim is a PAN member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as some small specialty chapters. When not writing, she can usually be found slathered in sunscreen trolling Los Angeles and helping top doctors build their practices.


Kim's Seducing the Stargazer is an entertaining romance book that many have enjoyed reading (check the reviews!).

You'll love this second chance romance and maybe the science theme too as this isn't something you often see in contemporary romance books. Seducing the Stargazer has good pace, interesting subplots, and two well-written characters.

With over one hundred million asteroids in the solar system, it took only one to bring them together again.

The stars have been the only constant in astronomer Winchester Carlsbad’s life. A pistol, she will do anything to continue her research on the Martian moons. When she discovers an asteroid on collision course with her former love’s rocket launch, she not only sees her opportunity to secure her telescope time, but to finally best the man who propelled her heart into a black hole when he walked away from her five years ago.

Billionaire Dr. Garner Knox is the face of astronomy to the public and a media darling. As spokesperson and investor in Personal Space, a privately owned space corporation, he has only one problem—his company can’t seem to get anything up. When Wynn fires back into his life and throws his mission into a tailspin, he knows he must get the one person who never believed in him to help him get his probe into orbit.

Working with Garner, Wynn battles the for profit space agency as well the sexy stargazer who rekindles her desires and makes her fall all over again. Garner fights to lasso his loose cannon from angering his investors and learns that vanishing from Wynn’s life didn’t make her disappear from his heart.

$50 Amazon gift card & children's author Tonya Macalino

If you saw the previous feature of this author, you probably know she's a paranormal author. But Tonya Macalino is a children's author too.

Tonya is a wife, mother, and author of futuristic thrillers and children's chapter books. An avid collector of folk history and folklore, she weaves the colorful tales of times past into a rich tapestry giving depth to the fast action of her stories.


Where does Tonya get her ideas?

Images from daydreams, leftover moments from the realm of the Sandman, impressions of what places must once have been. Ironically, the scene which inspired the book generally becomes the most wooden and awkward of the whole piece. Things that look beautiful as mental paintings don’t tend to flow all that well when populated by beings that are expected to behave believably.


For children, Tonya's highly acclaimed urban fantasy adventures, The Gates of Aurona series, remind readers of the magical family secrets from Spiderwick Chronicles as well the legendary call to heroism of Chronicles of Narnia and the Dark Is Rising.

The first book in the series, Into the Hare Wood, is a story that turns everyday life into something magical and full of possibility. Tonya Macalino weaves together our everyday world with mythic reality. Illustrations are done by Maya Lilova, which are reminiscent of Disney character art in my opinion.

The family curse just slipped out of the shadows and into their backyard...

Instead of spending summer break splashing in the pool, Hannah and Cameron Troyer find themselves solemnly guarded by ranks of neighborhood cats and haunted by a madman from the woods.

Did Dad forget to tell them something about their ancient Italian ancestors?

And can Hannah and Cameron unravel the secret on their own before the madman takes his revenge?

"Clang, clang, clang:
The sword against the golden gate.
The treasure waits within."


So who wants to win something? Tonya Macalino and I have partnered up to give away a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Everyone gets a sneak peek of the first chapter of Into the Hare Wood!
