A TASTE OF DEATH AND HONEY will release on 6/9/16!


It's the question that people have been asking me constantly for almost a year...when is book 3 coming out??? Well, now I have your answer, although it may be further out than some of you may have liked--6/9/16. But don't fret! I'll be hosting a big spring celebration in March-May with plenty of opportunities to get your hands on an ARC. This also gives you plenty of time to review the series by listening to book 1 and 2 in audiobook! ;)

Just so you know, it only took about one hour after this announcement before I heard a new question..."When does book 4 come out?" Of course, I don't know yet. But my goal is to finish book 4 before book 3 comes out, so it can go in the publishing queue soon after it.

A Taste of Death and Honey:

When Samantha’s parents died, she lost everything. Her home. Her friends. Her hope. Then a life-loving spring witch at the children’s shelter fills her life with light and joy once again.

But like the springtime, Samantha’s happiness doesn’t last forever. Her friend dies violently in front of her, the victim of a mysterious killing spell. Furious and grief-stricken, Samantha resents her own weak spring magic. She doesn’t need life and renewal. She wants revenge…and death.

Homeless and alone, Samantha seeks shelter with her old friends, the Vandergraff family, and finds an unexpected ally in the powerful winter solstice witch, Evangeline. The girls’ anger and eagerness lead them to cast a killing spell before knowing the truth behind Samantha’s friend’s death or the identity of her killer. 

Once the spell is cast, they can’t take it back, and they must fight to stop their own curse before it takes away everyone they love.







Destruction and Watch Me Burn are now available on #Audible! #audiobook #NowOnAudible

I love audiobooks. That's how I fell in love with the Harry Potter series. And I've been looking forward to hearing my words in audio for a long time. But I've also been nervous! The story was recorded and produced by Audible Studios and I had no input. I was worried they might screw it up. But they didn't! I love the narrator's interpretation. It's been like listening to the story for the first time.

Thank you to narrator Dennis Holland for his excellent work!

If you're a blogger who is interested in reviewing one or both books in audio form, please contact me.

#Review of Diverging Cadence by @KatieTeller1



About Diverging Cadence:

When Cadence Anderson woke to find her husband and infant daughter had been killed, she thought her life was over. Instead, she was offered a second chance and sent back in time to do it all again.

She’s made the most of this opportunity, repairing her relationship with the best friend she lost the first time, avoiding the romantic mistakes she made originally, and even bringing her family closer together. But she’s also done something she wasn’t planning on—she’s fallen in love with someone other than her future husband.
Stepping onto a plane and flying across country to attend university is the hardest decision she’s had to make. But unless she follows through with it, her future with Austin might never happen. And what becomes of her beautiful baby if she stays with James, the man she was never supposed to love?

The only thing she knows for certain is that she has to see Austin again, and she’s intent on reliving that part of her previous life exactly like she did the first time. Even if that means she has to lie to James to do it. Because, deep down, she can’t quite bring herself to let him go.

Now, past and future are about to collide, and Cadence has to make her final choice—follow the uncertain path of a life with James, or the one she came back to save . . . with Austin.

In this emotional conclusion to the story that began in Deceptive Cadence, relationships will be tested, identities revealed, and the past will overshadow the future, putting the finishing touches on an unforgettable tale of courage, sacrifice, and, above all, love.

REVIEW: Wow! This is one of those stories I wish I had thought of. :D The plot is genius. It's heartbreaking and inspiring, and weird and familiar at the same time. As a wife and mother, I identified with Cadence and believed her struggle.

My husband is my soulmate now, but were we born soulmates? If life turned out just slightly differently for me, I imagine that I could have fallen in love with someone else. Or, perhaps not. Maybe we would have taken a different road to find each other, but have found each other in the end anyway.

That's the question that I was excited to have answered in book 2. Do we have soulmates? Is life supposed to turn out a certain way? Would Cadence take a different path and still end in the same place? Or would she have a different happy ending this time?

I also loved the extra heartbreaking complication of Melody. Love triangles are common in literature, but you don't often have such an important piece of the puzzle...a yet-to-be-born child that you've already met and fallen in love with.

I started the story worried that neither option would be a perfect happy ending for Cadence, and I was right that the conclusion wouldn't come easily. However, I was very satisfied with the ending. I know that's a tough challenge--getting characters in a really impossible situation, but still finding the light at the end of the tunnel. Really well done all around.

#NewRelease SIMULATION by @taratylertalks

Excited for the sequel to Pop Travel! Keep an eye out for my review in October.


After Pop Travel, Geri convinced Cooper to move back to Atlanta, but for familiar reasons, things didn't work out... In Simulation, Geri is fighting her way back to full-fledged, solo agent status, but first has to deal with one more annoying sidekick on an equally annoying case. Meanwhile, Cooper takes his mind off Geri leaving him by throwing himself into his work, investigating an illegal clone android simulation operation. Sparks fly when Cooper and Geri's cases lead them down the same path. Of course Hasan wants to help them with their cases, and connives a plan to get them back together in the middle of all the chaos!

SIMULATION delivers more technology, more intense action, more humor, and more exciting new characters. Come along for the ride.

SIMULATION
by Tara Tyler
Release Date: Sept 14, 2015

In 2082, androids are an essential part of daily life. Some are helpful, some would make better toasters, and some are so human-like they're creepy. Back in Atlanta, Detective Cooper's latest client has him searching for her boyfriend who she thinks was replaced by a simulation, an illegal clone android. The guy also happens to be a popular new congressman.

As if the case wasn't frustrating enough, Cooper keeps crossing paths with his ex, FBI Agent Geri Harper who's looking for the same guy. As Cooper closes in, Geri is kidnapped. But when she resurfaces in Washington and goes on a killing spree, he knows it isn't her. Now under suspicion himself, Cooper must find the real Geri to prove her innocence, not to mention hunt down the powerful villain behind it all. Never a dull moment.
