2013 Author Blitz- Nickie Seidler, Author of "A Lucky Second Chance " + Giveaway!

 Welcome to my stop on the 2013 Summer Author Blitz Tour. During this stop you will get to know a wonderful author through an interview that you can read below. Nickie Seidler is the author of A Lucky Second Chance. To read more about this great book, check it out on Goodreads
Interview with the Author of A Lucky Second Chance, Nickie Seidler.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your book?
Well, let’s see, I’m 26 years old and married to my best friend for almost two years now. I’ve struggled to find the “light” when it came to something that I wanted to do career wise with my life, till I discovered writing. I love it and I really do hope to make a career of it someday.
ALSC came out of my brain on a whim. I never thought of this story until I started writing. I find my best thoughts come out when I just sit down and write. It all comes to me. I’m not one of those authors that goes out with a notebook strapped to them, I never truly think of ideas until I’m smack down in front of a computer. Then I just type away, and that’s exactly what I did with A Lucky Second Chance. I really hope you all enjoy the book! It’s a good suspenseful romance that make you not want to stop once you start!
Outside of writing, what other things do you do or enjoy?
Outside of writing? What’s that? HAHA just kidding! I take breaks quite often on the weekend and spend time with the husband. We love to go to movies, hang out with friends, have a bon fire, catch a Dierks Bentley concert, or just relax. With our work M-F everyday work schedules we tend to want to just spend time with each other on the weekends! I also love to cook and try new recipes or make own recipes up!
Who are you inspired by?
Honestly, I’m inspired by these other wonderful Indie Authors I’ve gotten to know very well. Us indies’ struggle to get our names out there and for people to read our books. It amazes how many authors, bloggers, fans have LIKED my facebook page before my book is even out! They already want signed copies, swag, etc…and they haven’t read my book yet, just teasers! These LIKES inspire me alone because it means people want to read my work, they want to read MY WORK! I still can’t fathom seeing my name on my own paperback! Thank you for the continued support from you all, you make my life just that much better!
What are you reading at the moment?
I’m currently reading Lifeless by J.M. La Rocca, awesome read, highly recommened!
Are there any other works in progress at the moment?
There are two works in progress at the moment! I’m so excited to share with you in July the title for my next book! I’m jumping in my seat, excited for my next book in general! It’s a little different then ALSC and I’m hoping you guys will love it! I’m hoping for a release date of October 2013 but that’s just a hopeful guestimate! The second work in progress, which I don’t have a title for yet, I’m hoping to be out by February or March 2014!
What got you started in writing?
 This may sound totally goofy, and don’t make fun of me, but Fifty Shades of Grey actually pushed me to write my own story. I absolutely loved the story line, when I read that book, I couldn’t put it down! Then it dawned on me, hm, I should write my own kind of books! There it was a few months later I opened up Word and just started typing and my ideas just started to flow like crazy. Can you believe that I actually hated to read when I was younger? Never read any books unless school forced me to! Then, about a year ago I started a series of books my mom recommended and it immediately hit me, I wasn’t reading the genre that I was interested in! Now I’m hooked on reading, and even more, writing!
Do you model any of your characters or situations off of real life?
My characters are all fictional in ALSC, completely made up and resemble no particular person, event, or place.
Thank you for the interview! It was my pleasure to fill you in on some extra information! You guys all mean the world to me! I’m so thankful for such a growing community, with amazing fans that show me the best support a girl could ask for! I appreciate the blessing that God has given me for this wonderful opportunity of being an Author. It makes me feel so happy to be able to share this novel with the world!

15 Minutes Review and Blog Tour

Hi, and welcome to my stop on the 15 Minutes blog tour. When I started this book it was impossible to put down! The plot was interesting, the characters believable, and the cover is stunning! I hope you enjoy my review and buy this book, it was awesome! Read an excerpt from 15 Minutes here.

My Review:
15 minutes is a time traveling story that you are going to love. Lara is risking her life trying to change the past and she uncovers more than she bargained for. She is now in the middle of a huge conspiracy that she is unable to get away from. Will she be able to get back to her timeline? Or will she be stuck in this hell forever?
I loved this story and how it encompassed a large amount of genres. It has time traveling, a love triangle, mystery, and drama. Author, Jill Cooper, has done a masterful job weaving this story together. There were a large amount of twists and turns that had to be planned out from the beginning in order to be believable and keep you turning the pages. I loved Lara's character and seeing the differences between the characters in different timelines. The entire premise of the story was great and I fell in love with it. This story had me hooked from page one and I was unable to put it down.

Author Bio: 

I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.
But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read.
I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.
If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying.

Kiss of Fire Book Review and Blog Tour

Welcome to my stop on the Kiss of Fire Blog Tour hosted by Megan at Reading Away the Days. Check out my review below. I hope you give this book a shot and that you love it as much as I did!

While reading Kiss of Fire, I became emotionally invested in Joclyn's story. Her life has fallen apart into a nightmare all because of a mark she received when she was five. Joclyn is a loner, convinced that if anyone were to see her mark they would leave her and she would be alone. The one exception? Her best friend Ryland. Throughout the book you are able to feel the desperation and loneliness that Joclyn is feeling and you can empathize with her. I loved the concept of this story and the way that it was told. There was a lot going on during the book and it was an incredibly interesting story that I rushed to finish. In my opinion, this is a fresh, new tale that is going to bloom into a huge series that everyone needs to read. I loved every moment of this book, the emotional roller coaster it took me on, and I cannot wait to read the second book in the series.
