Book Tour & Giveaway: Galactic Mandate


Galactic Mandate: A Radical Cause
by M.R. Richardson
Genre: SciFi, Space Opera


The galaxy is in turmoil. The two main powers, the Acolyte Empire and the Clone Defense Force, vie for supremacy. 


Caught in between are the weaker Galactic Planetary League and independent planets, pawns to be used and discarded in the greater game. The peace of the galaxy rests on a powder keg…and the fuse is about to be lit. 

As the son of the Acolyte Emperor God-Reign, Devante lives a life of power and luxury that few can fathom. 

Since childhood, he has devoted his life to one thing: freeing the clone slaves of the CDF and banning the practice of cloning throughout the galaxy. But he is about to uncover a secret that goes to the heart of the empire he loves and serves, one that will set him on a course of vengeance and destruction that will shake the galaxy to its core. 

Against this backdrop of war, treachery, and intrigue, Galactic Mandate tells an epic saga of god-emperors and assassins, spies and queens, princesses and slaves. 

The lives of all will be irrevocably changed as Devante embraces his destiny—for when empires collide, no one is safe, and there is no place in the galaxy to hide.

In a realm of elves, ogres and white witches, where danger is ever-present, Princess Helena Lichtenberg lost her parents at a young age. Raised by her uncle and aunt, Helena values family above all else. Now, as decreed by tradition, it is time to select a mate.

HER ALPHA

Enormous, scarred and scary, Black Ridge Wolf Pack leader Aldric Forst has never drawn the eye of any Omega. Why would he? But, on this, the night of what he swears is his last selection celebration, everything is different. One of those most beautiful, magical and powerful women, the niece of the king and queen themselves, wants him. And Aldric has never wanted anything more in return. No force—no matter how dark, no matter how powerful—will take Helena from him.




Ceva's Chance
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 2

SHROUDED IN DARKNESS...

If it hadn't been for King Leonidas, white witch Ceva would have roamed the earth alone and ostracized. She was a biological accident, and her heritage was a curse she'd carry around for all her days. Now she fights for her king and kingdom, a fierce warrior on a mission to prove she is worthy of the trust and friendship the king has afforded. When she meets Lothar, captain of the Black Ridge Wolf Pack guard, she glimpses a future she never thought possible. But once he knows her truths, he will surely reject her.

ONLY HE CAN SET HER FREE

Lothar had never met anyone like Ceva. Beautiful, fierce, protective and loyal, she would make the perfect mate for any man. Lothar wants to be that man, but Ceva remains elusive. Sure, she flirts, and they dance around each other, but Lothar wants more. When his team joins hers on a dangerous mission, he learns her secrets, which makes her more extraordinary, not the pariah she believes she is. But her past is about to catch up with her, and only his love can save them from certain death.

But at a young age Karli had found her forever in Joseph and Rowl's arms, and she knew she could never love anyone else. After a vicious ogre attack decimated the village where her parent's had hidden her, warriors came to save the wounded pack members. Warriors led by Joseph and Rowl.

Although she had seemed to disappear into thin air, Joseph and Rowl never stopped searching for the woman they loved. When Karli was discovered among the ruins of a small village, the fierce warrior captains couldn't believe their eyes. And once they had found her, they were never going to let her go. But dark forces were at work to separate the triad once again, and this time all their lives were on the line.




Laura's Legacy
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 4

And so were many others, including members of the small Newton pack, and their handsome, strong alpha, Dedric. One brief interlude was all it took for Laura to know she would choose him as her mate.

Alpha Dedric Newton couldn’t believe his good fortune. Beautiful and powerful, Laura was the omega of his dreams. Worried he had so little to offer, he insists she spend time with his small pack as they rebuild their village and homes. Laura and Dedric’s time in Newton strengthens their bond while evil works to undo all of Laura’s gifts, especially her legacy. After finding the greatest love an alpha could dream of, Dedric will do anything and everything to keep Laura safe from harm.

Occupation Blu-ray Review

Lionsgate; Rated R; 120 minutes



Arriving on Blu-ray (+Digital), DVD, and Digital on September 25th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is the Australian science fiction flick Occupation. Written & Directed by Luke Sparke, the film stars Dan Ewing, Temuera Morrison, Stephany Jacobsen, Zachary Garred, Izzy Stevens, Charles Mesure Boogeyman, Felix Williamson, Jacqueline McKenzie, Aaron Jeffery, and Bruce Spence.

Set in a small Australian town, the opening of the movie centers around the residents gathering around a hometown football game; well, until spaceships descend from the skies and start blowing everything up. A small group of survivors - Matt (played by Dan Ewing) and his girlfriend, Amelia (played by Stephany Jacobsen), Jackson (played by Charles Terrier) and his pregnant girlfriend Vanessa (played by Rhiannon Fish), Peter (played by Temuera Morrison) and his daughter, Isabella (played by Izzy Stevens), and a local farmer, Arnold (played by Charles Mesure), flee into the nearby forest, where they take shelter and plan a resistance against the invaders.

The invaders are extraterrestrial lifeforms from another world (or galaxy, as it was never really explained where they are from), who came to Earth to colonize Australia after they had already used up all the natural resources on their former planet. While they do kill many humans during the invasion, their main goal is capture and force the humans to grow and work field crops.

The remaining human survivors join forces with what's left of the Australian's military and they strike back against the alien invaders, in the hope of saving their country.

Dan Ewing ("Matt Simmons") stars in Lionsgate Home Entertainment's OCCUPATION.




Final Thoughts

Book Tour & Giveaway: He Was


He Was
by Thomas William Lowrie
Genre: Historical Suspense

Ever had one of those days, how about one of those weeks? If you haven't, you are missing out. I spent years priding myself in the fact that I was always with it, I always had my wits about me, until that day. My life changed and not just a little. I became someone else, someone who was far stronger than I am, someone who I could only hope to be. Ray Lafayette was a man who was neither rich nor famous yet I lived every day to see what he would do next. The fear I experienced in that time only made the happiness that much more exiting. I have heard the statement "Don't judge a man until you walk a mile in his shoes." I walked many miles in his and can say with pride that he and all others from his time were the greatest, all colors, all nationalities, young and old, men and women alike. It may sound great to know the future but there is a dark side to it, an almost unbearable side. Your eyes will be opened to things your mind may not handle.This event has changed me. I no longer wish for things, I live for them.

by Hunter Shea
Genre: Horror 

They’re Bigger
Deep in the sewers of New York City, the rat population is growing. Dr. Randolph Finch is determined to break the cycle. His new rodenticide, Degenesis, doesn’t kill rats. It sterilizes them from reproducing. But nothing adapts faster than a New York rat . . .

They’re Smarter

Guidelines for a Home Improvement Project

“I think we need this replaced”, “Let’s change these”, these words work as stimulants to the start of a home improvement project. After this, comes the wish to add a room for family accommodation, or to remodel the kitchen, or to get the roof upgraded or changed by contractor doing Roofing Canton MI. And then, come in the points of funds and space available for upgradation of improvement. It is a normal practice to see the ideas and the on-ground reality does not coincide, sometimes because of lack of funds, or lesser space for expansion, or costly material. How to cope with these problems? There is a solution, and it is very easy. Stay realistic while evaluating your needs.

WHY DO HOMEOWNERS CONSIDER HOME IMPROVEMENTS?

  • To update and out of date area of the home
  • Due to an immediate requirement to replace something broken or to get an inefficient fixture fixed.
  • Planning on selling your home? Get those fixes done to get good price quotes.
  • You don’t want to move to another house, rather upgrade this one.
  • You need more room due to the growing family.

These are a few reasons because of which a homeowner thinks about having his home improvement done. A lot of homeowners get confused between moving to a new house or improving the current one.

HOME IMPROVEMENT TO CHANGE

If you are planning on moving and you are doing home improvement for selling, evaluate the plans carefully. One must not spend too much, or too less, as both may not be beneficial when the potential buyer evaluates the property. He may not be interested in how much you’ve spent for getting a pool or a hot tub. It’s not necessary for the buyer to appreciate your color selection, or how much effort you put in to keep the place clean and in up to date. The key is to keep the changes simple. This way, it’ll be easier to improve your home for selling purpose. Just think about the things which are “More important to a buyer”, and get those things improved, e.g. remodeling a bath, improving the kitchen, landscaping or adding a garage.

Lana only knows she’s been kidnapped—and she’ll fight tooth and nail against whoever has snatched her from her life.
