#NewRelease The Last Hour by Tara Brown

 
Title: The Last Hour
Author: Tara Brown
Genre: YA Dystopian
 
 
 
From the trees, I can smell them—smell their fear.
They’re scared as they scurry like animals.
They look different now.
Clothes are ripped.
Hair is dirty.
It’s not them I’m watching for.
They don’t know it, but I’m watching over them.
They move silently, not making noise.
It’s a different world.
Everything is quiet.
The prey moves differently here.
The others listen—always listening.
Silence was survival.
But what are we all surviving for?
 
 
 
 
I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination. You need one or you go mad.
Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That's the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.
 
I am happily married with two daughters.
I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red.
Also, I drag my bread through the sauce. I can't help myself, bread is life.
According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn't going well at all. I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn't a single wardrobe I haven't crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia. And don't even get me started on the King's Road, I get lost.
 
Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.
 
Thank God for that.
 
I am represented by Natalie Lakosil from the Bradford Literary Agency and am published traditionally with Montlake Romance.

I was never that child you found in the corner reading. In fact, I loathed the idea of picking up a book. The activity seemed more of a chore than a past time.
All that changed when my brother began talking to me about the newest novel he was reading.Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix. Before I knew it, my curiosity got the better of me, luring me to try the series. It didn't take long for my mindset of reading to turn on its head. 
But even with my new hobby discovered it wasn't until my junior year of college that I developed a hidden desire for writing stories. And when I found myself writing scenes instead of paying attention to my professors, I knew becoming a writer was the career path I was meant to follow.

The door closed with a thud.

All of the Rogers by Erin Lockwood #BookTour #Giveaway @elockwoodbooks @SDSXXTours

 
 
All of the Rogers
by Erin Lockwood
Genre: YA Psychological Romance
 
 
 
"How can you love someone so much and need space from them at the same time?"
 

 

My alarm goes off at four am. It takes an hour to get to the studio, and then my ballet training begins. I go to school for a few hours, and then it’s back to the studio for more training. Go to bed. Repeat the whole process the next day. 
I hate it.
My time at school is a blur, except for biology. I don’t rush through that class, because I get to see Roger Byrnes. He probably doesn’t even know I exist, but my heart beats a little faster when I see him walk through the classroom door with his messy hair and carefree attitude. He has so much energy. But then he stares off into the distance, and I wonder what he’s thinking. It’s the highlight of my day. 
I wish I could quit ballet so I could be a normal teenager. Someone who Roger would want to be with. I could use some excitement in my life…I bet Roger could give that to me.

 

 
 
 
 

Roger keeps running with me screaming over his shoulder, and I’m getting

seriously worried he’s not going to slow down when he reaches the ice-cold

Pacific Ocean. I can feel the freezing wet splashes on my legs, and as he runs

into deeper water, some of the splashes reach up to my face. 

 

I’ve been playfully kicking and screaming for him to put me down, but now,

I’m gripping his upper back, not wanting him to lower me at all. Don’t let the

turquoise water of Carmel fool you; it’s damn cold, even in the summer. Girls

wear bikinis on the beach, and surfers wear wetsuits all year-round. Even I

know that. 

 

You broke a promise,” he says while his arm grabs me from over his shoulder

and moves me down. 

 

The muscles in my legs bulge, and I clench them around his upper body,

holding myself high up on his shoulder. 

 

What are you? A cat?” he says, confused, as he tries to figure out what I’m

doing with my body.

 

I grab on to his head and use it as leverage to clench my thighs together over

his other shoulder. “I never broke a promise,” I say, unashamed. The only

emotion going through me right now is fear of going into the ice cold water. “I

never promised to call you.” 

 

Oh, that hurts my feelings,” he says dramatically. 

 

He reaches up and tries one more time to pull me off of him, but I’m too

strong. 

 

How the hell are you stronger than me?” he exclaims, clearly frustrated that

he’s tried twice to throw me in the water with no success. 

 

All he’s been able to do is make me slip down his body a little. My one leg is

still draped over his shoulder, and the other is wrapped around his back,

holding on for dear life. My face has moved from over his head to right in front

of his nose. 

 

Ballerinas are a lot stronger than you think,” I say with a calm, even breath. 

I’ve never kissed a boy before, and right now, I’m staring at one’s lips. They’re

so full and colorful; they look as if they’re full of fruit punch. I wonder what it

would taste like and feel like. If I just move my head a few inches closer… 

 

Maybe so,” he says, matching my even breath. “You might be stronger than

me, but I’m more clever.” He spreads his arms out, as if he’s going to give

someone a huge hug, and slowly, his body weight shifts back.

 

No, no, no, no, no!” I scream once I realize there’s no stopping him from

falling back into the water.

 
 
 
 
Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended the University of Oregon, where she graduated in 2003 with a degree in journalism. From there she moved to Denver and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.
 

 

It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a Realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book (and binge-watching the subsequent films) in the New Adult genre. Feeling hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story leading up to their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles trilogy.
 
Erin still lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband, Phil, and their three children.
