I grew up in a small northern Minnesotan town married my high school sweetheart, had two beautiful children and as soon as we could we moved to a warmer climate. I have worked with my husband building and

decorating custom homes for years. After loving every kind of vampire book, movie and series I decided that I wanted to know more. I can write a book I thought, how hard can that be? Well…. But I stuck to it and finished my first book Royal Blood Chronicles Book One in August 2009. I now have six books in the series and am about to release book two of my new series Phantom Lives. My parents always told me that I could do anything that I wanted, work hard, study and do it right. I believe that and live that way every day.

Cover Reveal for Impulsion by Jamie Magee

Title: Impulsion
Author: Jamie Magee         
Genre: New Adult

BLURB

With a glance Wyatt Doran stole Harley Tatum’s heart. With each summer that passed, touch by touch, they robbed each other’s innocence, birthing a love that was so deep that it scorched within. Without warning, they were ripped from the clutches of each other, placed in lives that were worlds apart. Only to cross paths after a freak accident where Harley’s horse rig was flipped. An accident that Wyatt Doran, from fire station 32, responded.

The tension was immediate, the emotions were raw. One breath told them they were not the same as before, one touch…changed their world.

The fun non boring Bio 🙂
I’m an obsessive daydreamer. Lover of loud alternative music. Addicted to Red Bull. I love to laugh until it hurts. Fall is my favorite season. Black is my favorite ‘shade.’ Strong believer in the saying: there is a reason for everything, therefore I search for ‘marked moments’ every moment of everyday…and I find them. Life is beautiful!
Boring one….
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

His fingertips slowly moved down her face, down her neck. He noticed how all the tension in her body drifted away, how her eyes slowly closed, the long, deep breaths that were causing her chest to rise and fall.“The sight of you brought it all back, past and present colliding with a magnitude that is so great…that I have no choice but to stop and realize that the only thing holding us back this go ‘round is us.”He reached his arm around her waist and pulled her body against his, causing her eyes to fly open, those breaths to come even faster. “And Harley, I’m going to fight like hell for you. And as soon as I make you mine again, I will die before I ever let anyone take you from me again.” His hand rose to her face, his thumb grazed her flesh, his eyes dipped to her lips, then met her gaze once more. “You’re the only woman I have ever loved. That I ever will love.”All at once, they both moved forward, their lips connecting as if they were molded from one source, a well-practiced dance of flesh, the perfect rhythm, teasing brushes of tongues that knew just when to fall into a deeper kiss, a kiss that was so devouring that all thought, all reason vanished. The impulse of the heart, that deep passion that lies dormant within erupted to a euphoria that made it impossible to fathom life outside of that very instant.


Heaven Is For Real Book Review

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

Blurb:

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed–a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery-and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, “Heaven Is for Real” offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

“Heaven Is for Real” will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Review:

Heaven Is For Real…right? I’ve never questioned if heaven is real before, but so many others do. Regardless, this is my thoughts, my heart on Heaven Is For Real.

So, here’s the background: Before I read the book…Two years, while stuck in yet another airport, (I have terrible luck when it comes to catching my scheduled flight) I decided to check out their book store. I came across Heaven Is For Real, picked the book up and bought it. Afterward I had that, ‘I did a good thing’ feeling. You know, like when you offer an elderly man/woman your seat in a seatless room. Anyway, so I grabbed the book but didn’t end up reading it. When I got home, I tossed the paperback on my coffee table and forgot about it. Well, not really….do you ever get a feeling that someone is watching you? Well, that’s how I felt every time I looked at this book, just sitting on my coffee table. I wanted to read it, only I did’t want to go there. But I had this nagging feeling in the back of my mind telling me I really needed to read this book. However, I continued to ignore the silly voice in my head. So, the book continued to sit.

A week ago (now two weeks because I suck at writing reviews and blogging) I learned this book was coming to the big screen! I watched the trailer and instant goosebumps formed on my arms. Seriously.  No joke. I chatted with a few friends who’d read the book and they all said, “Oh, you’re going to love it. It’s a super fast read. You’ll finish it in one evening.”

Still didn’t read the book.

During the read: So, it’s Easter weekend, my favorite holiday and I decided to buy tickets to watch Heaven Is For Real. Yup, it’s so gonna happen, and that’s what I did. I booked our tickets for Sunday evening and figured I’d sit down and read. So, third page into the prologue and my eyes are watering.  I continued reading and the next thing I knew, I’d read over half the book. Yeah, I guess you could say I was hooked.

Below I quoted a couple of my favorite parts:

“I think God knows where he puts our children, in each family,” Mrs. Kramarik said. I remembered what Jesus told his disciples one day when they were trying to keep some kids from ‘bothering’ him: “Let the little children come to me.”  I made a mental note for future sermons: Akianie’s story showed that God can reach anyone, anywhere, at any age—even a preschool girl in a home where his name had never been spoken.

“You said you went to heaven. People have to die to go to heaven.”

Colton’s gaze didn’t waver. “Well, okay then, I died. But just for a little bit.” My heart skipped a beat. If you haven’t heard your preschooler tell you he was dead, I don’t recommend it.

I’ve already said I cried while reading Heaven Is For Real, but I laughed, too…and then freaking cried again, and sometimes while laughing.

Skeptics, or people who’ve been ‘turned off’ from God may look at this book/review and think: Yeah, good try. This is simply another persons attempt to make me feel guilty for one reason or another. God isn’t about guilt or hate or any other assortment of inadequacies. God is love.

Heaven Is For Real is a great representation of how much you are loved. Pointing fingers or accusations from family or friends is wrong. No one is out of His reach. No one person has the ability to take His grace away from you.  No one is perfect, but His love, kindness, and forgiveness is.

 

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  ~2 Corinthians 1:3

When everything else is lost, there is always hope.

While most teens want an epic senior year, Trinity Whitebone hoped for a normal one. Being seventeen was hard enough. Having the emotions of everyone around you in your head made life more than a little difficult.

Until Blain Heros enrolled.

He screamed hot-god in jeans with just his walk. His intense stare warmed her skin like a thousand suns. Unfortunately, his interest in her seemed to run from blazing to freezing in the span of moments and left her nothing but confused. She could deal with things not being normal, but when life goes from strange to dangerous…

Trinity is the direct descendant of Pandora and fated to rectify the terrors released into the world by her curious ancestor. With powers she didn’t know existed and abilities she never wanted, Trinity tries to walk…
