Book Tour & Giveaway: Isaac Comett


Isaac Comett: My Life as a Shard Knight
by R.T. Driver
Genre: YA SciFi Fantasy

It's 2003, and the coldest of seasons has arrived, filled with monsters, robots and dead beat dads.

Isaac believed his only job was to blow off homework, play video games and get a date with his crush, the cunning local delinquent June Farnell; not defend his hometown from vicious space pirates!

On one Fall afternoon, he and his friends are attacked by aliens seeking the Memorite Shards; crystals that grant the user superpowers. His comfortable life with his mom and younger brother is gone, and he's forced to fight a secret war against the merciless Cyborg, Straum. Even when they gain the shard's protection, more questions about their unyielding attackers arise, and their only source for answers is another shady alien, and fellow Memorite user, Chenzo.

Lying to his mom and swinging a sword become Isaac's new life as he, June and the others train to become Shard Knights; defenders of the Memorite. Unfortunately for him, he's the team's weakest link, and surviving the one year bonding period to the crystal seems less likely with each battle. And what's worse, his estranged father Zack is back in town after a year long hiatus, ready to "set things right"...again.

Will Isaac defeat Straum's army of mechanical warriors, save his family and live long enough to put on his graduation cap, or will Comett burn out like so many others before him? 

Join Isaac, June, the slick talking Austin, his brainy beauty girlfriend Emma, and the comic-book obsessed Fiora in this epic sci-fi rumble and see what being a hero is REALLY all about!

-Realistic characters of different races and backgrounds that deal with true to life issues, such as school drama, dating, divorced parents and neglect.

-No lengthy, needless descriptions make for a satisfying read.

-Immersive, over-the-top action influenced by video games, anime, and science fiction movies while seasoned with emotional encounters throughout. Feel like a part of a super hero team!

-Edited for quality and easy navigation!


First Release Testimonials
"A Good Mashup of Anime and Sci-Fi Story Telling" - Flipino Fuego

"Looking Forward to More!" - Ms. Chea

"The pace is perfect, the reading is very comfortable, and the material is appropriate for all ages. Although this book is geared towards...young adults, I...couldn't put it down! I definitely recommend this suspenseful book to everyone who enjoys a good read." -Mrs. Wygant




Isaac Comett: Interstellar Warrior

Isaac, June, Austin and the others are halfway through their bonding period with the powerful Memorite Crystals, but their adventure is far from over.

Fighting Androids and Seekers has become second nature to the team, but their unity is put to the test when personal feelings from a bad breakup get in the way of being heroes. With graduation only weeks away, their parents growing suspicious of their activities, and two of the warriors ready to rip each other's heads off, it seems like things couldn't get worse...

But they do.

Isaac and the others depart for the world of Rudesia to Recall the remaining Shards. There's no rest for the tired friends, as not only do they have a rich, stuck-up Count on their tails, but complications from a new, less welcome addition to their group.

The chance for an early freedom and end to the Memorite War has come! Will Isaac's emotional wounds heal in time, or will they lead to a deathblow for the Shard Knights?

-Picks up after My Life as a Shard Knight

-Inspired by Video Games, Anime and Manga

-Crazy sci-fi action throughout!

-Addresses issues of change, what makes a healthy relationship, and the consequences of greed and violence

-Includes pages of concept art and character designs!

Why You Should Wait to Get Married Until After Your Mid 20s

Nowadays, you hear of teens rushing to the altar right after High School graduation, with their High School sweetheart in tow. However, over half of these young marriages will end in divorce—most of them never making it past the one-year mark. Recent studies suggest that the best times to get hitched are in your mid to late 20s, or even later in your early to mid-30s—but why? Read on for a few reasons to wait for marriage, even when you feel hopelessly, madly in love at 18.


Establish a Long-Lasting Commitment Beforehand to Ensure a Long-Lasting Commitment Afterwards

If you don’t have a long-term commitment before marriage, there’s a big chance you won’t have a long-term commitment after marriage. And those four years of High School DO NOT count. Neither does that psychic love reading you had when you were in middle school. Why? Because that’s not the real world. You have to live with someone, get to know their quirks and differences, reconcile with their habits, and then decide if those things are what you want to spend the rest of your life dealing with. No piece of court-ordered paper is going to solidify a commitment that was never there to begin with.

Experience Your Teens and 20s Completely, with Fun, Exploration, and Excitement 

Your teens and 20s are meant to be experienced with fun and exploration. You are meant to travel, fulfill some bucket list dreams, and have exciting experiences that you can talk about in your old age. These years aren’t meant for marriage, because a serious, long-term marriage rarely has room for the fun and carefree exploration that could have been in your late teens and early 20s.

Book Tour & Giveaway: One Last Heist


One Last Heist
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense

One last heist.
It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a nightmare of betrayal.
Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.
Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they’re spiraling out of control and the journey they’re travelling can’t last.
What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous conspiracy. They’re now in a race to come out on top. If they fail, the consequences are unimaginable.





Reasons Why I Prefer Free Dating Sites



Here I am early in the wee hours (though I'll mostly likely be posting this later in the morning) with nothing better to do than search the internet for dating websites. I don't know if it is my loneliness, lack of sleep, or just pure boredom, but I find myself one again in search for my soulmate, who probably doesn't even exist in this realm.

If you've been following my recent ramblings on this blog, then you would know about my desire to try out online dating. However, due to my procrastination issues, social anxiety, and a deep fear of rejection, I keep putting off creating an actual dating profile; though I do have a few dating sites that I would like to join. While I'm not actually going to mention any specific websites, I will say that the ones that intrigued me the most all have specific geeky niches, which fits more into my personality. And many of these websites are free!

Why would I prefer free dating websites to premium ones?

Well, my main reason is that financially my best option is joining a dating site. While I'm sure that premium dating sites are great, they can be a bit costly. What if I joined a premium dating site and I couldn't find a match! Then I would have wasted a lot money that I could have saved to pay for a real first date after I had found a match on a free dating site.

Another reason why I would prefer to join a free dating site is because there will probably be more dating matches in my area.

Now for online dating in general, my two biggest reasons for wanting to try it out are:
