Where We Left Off, Virtual Book Tour with J. Alex Blane





J. Alex Blane is an author whose debut Novel “Where We Left Off” was his first break in the literary world of fiction romantic suspense, but definitely not his last as he is currently working on both his second & third novels within the series. A Multi-Media developer by trade; “J. Alex Blane is a talented man whose creativity is exceptional!” – Katrina Coleman (Amazon).

Since Alex could remember, it has always been his dream to write a novel. After nearly eight years of deciding to put a single ballpoint pen to a piece of paper he finally finished placing the last period at the end of the last sentence and introduced readers to Where We Left Off, a story that has evolved into something to this day he will say he never expected and in some cases transcending the definition of its genre.

Alex currently resides in Bear, Delaware with his wife and his two children where they share a small home just right for him to sneak off into a little corner and write more of what he loves and where he is currently at work on his next novel. He is a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Nu Upsilon Chapter in Wilmington, Delaware, a father and a husband. Alex loves to tell a good story, but more than that he loves to make you feel as if you are right there as it’s happening.

Khara Campbell was born and raised in Nassau, The Bahamas, however she currently resides in Maryland with her husband and three children. Khara has a bachelors of Fine Art Degree in creative writing. Besides Khara’s debut novel “Not My Will, but His”, she has also written and self published a children’s book titled “Island Girl”. Khara has had a joy for writing for as long as she could remember and is excited about her debut novel.

Get to know Khara questions:

1. What was your inspiration for your debut novel?

The idea for Not My Will came from my own personal experience years ago, newly saved and dating. This guy at the time just didn’t understand my desire to abstain from sex which made the relationship every different.

2. Have you ever experienced writer’s block, what got your juices flowing?

Yes I have. During those times I take a break from the story and allow my mind to relax which helps me to think clearer. Sometimes my mind would get so jumbled up with all these thoughts and ideas that I would have to take a mental break from writing to regroup.

3. What type of music gets you up and going and why?

I love all types of music so it really depends on the mood I’m in. I love my praise and worship, some Mary, Mary or Kirk Franklin. Sometimes I’m in the mood for R&B or reggae, it all depends on my mood at the time. But music does help to get me motivated, it’s like listening to a short story being played on the stereo.

4. What keeps you grounded: faith, family, writing?

My faith in God is number one! I’ve had moments when all I felt I could rely on was God. My family of course is right after and also writing because its so therapeutic to me. I have to write just like I have to eat and sleep.

5. If you had to teach a fitness class today, what would the workout be? Sit-ups, running, basketball, tennis, squats etc.

Ahh probably running or tennis. I was really good in track and field, sometimes I wished I had stuck with it. I also like recreational tennis though I haven’t played in awhile.

6. Besides being an author, what other interests, desires do you have?

My dream is to start a business or develop some opportunities in the Bahamas, where I’m from, to continue to grow the economy. I’ve always had a desire to give back to my country in a big way.

7. Tell us something about your next project.

My next novel is about self acceptance. The main character will find out some shocking news from her dying mother.

BOOK OF THE DAY: The Angel And The Warrior by Karen Kay



A hunted woman, a forbidden love…and time ticking down on an ancient curse.


THE ANGEL AND THE WARRIOR

The Lost Clan, Book 1

Eighteen years ago, Swift Hawk was sent to the earthly realm to try to break an enchantment that curses his clan to a half-life in the mists. As his allotted time runs short, a vision gives him a glimpse of his last chance to free his people. A delicate young woman with translucent white skin and star-like hair. He never thought his sacred vision would possess the tongue of a shrew.

Angelia Honeywell and her brother Julian fled Mississippi amid a hail of rotten tomatoes and flying bullets. She only fired back in self-defense, but now they are on the run as their father pleads their case to the governor.

With Julian trying to pass himself off as a wagon train scout, Angel knows they need help. When the handsome, black-eyed Swift Hawk agrees to save their skins, she can’t help but be drawn to his compelling gaze. But as they come together in a blaze of desire, the dark shadows of the curse descend, threatening to divide them forever.

COVER AUTHOR: Kianna Alexander





I’m Kianna Alexander. I’m a wife, mother, sister, friend, and avid reader. I also write like my life depended on it, because, in a way, it does.

I've been writing since I was a shy, introverted child of about ten. My stories provided an escape from a world that sometimes seemed harsh and uncaring. When I wasn't writing, I was reading- devouring R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps and Fear Street Novels, Sweet Valley High Books, and the occasional Nancy Drew mystery. I was in high school before I discovered romance novels. I perused my mother’s untouched collection of Harlequin novels, and read the occasional clench-covered tome in the library. But at sixteen, I picked up Beverly Jenkin’s Night Song. That book changed my life, and I think that’s when the writing bug first bit me.



Loving the Lawman
The Darling of the Founding Family

Valerie Ridgeway is the granddaughter of Ridgeway's founder, and the sole heir to the town's ownership. A tall, graceful beauty, she's had a slew of suitors- most every eligible man within fifty miles of town has come courting for her. Despite her loveliness, however, Valerie has developed a reputation for rejecting men with her icy demeanor. Only a select few of the townsfolk know the secret shame that fuels her bitterness. Approaching thirty, she's given up on the fairy tale of marriage, choosing instead to give her time and effort to the betterment of the race.

The Keeper of the Peace

Noah Rogers, Ridgeway's sheriff, takes his job very seriously. An intense man by nature, he bears the responsibility of the safety of the townsfolk, with only a single deputy to aid him. He's eschewed romantic entanglements in order to give his full focus to his very important work- that is, until he lay eyes on Miss Ridgeway. He's desired her from afar, biding his time, watching as she cut down a string of "suitable men," one after another. He's aware of her reputation; still, he senses a vulnerable, radiant creature beneath all the sass and ire, one he intends to discover.

A Budding Love... A Town in Jeopardy

Just as Noah begins to woo Valerie, a rash of crime invades the usually peaceful environment of Ridgeway. When the safety of the innocent citizens of town becomes more threatened than ever before, Noah must find a way to protect them, and the woman he loves. But when shocking violence, loss, and grief threaten to unravel their hard-won courtship, will they find a way to overcome it all, so that Valerie can truly begin loving the lawman?
