I’m delighted to have Mysti Parker tell you about her latest project:

Author Mysti Parker

Author Mysti Parker

Serenya’s Song, Book Two of the stand-alone Tallenmere fantasy romance series, was born in April 2012. To better reflect its place as the darker middle-child of the series, cover artist Caroline Andrus and I tore the original cover down and redesigned it! Special thanks goes to KY photographer Alicia Carlton and KY model Courtney Leigh Collins for providing a beautiful image for Serenya! 



On Sunday, April 28 from 5-9 PM EST, I want to show off this new beautiful cover, so please join me for a night of prizes, games, music, and merriment! Share this event AND bring a friend!

What can you do to be fit and healthy? Try the SlimKicker Challenge & Giveaway!

Fitness/Health Challenge Time! Leave a comment on my blog for a great idea, like “doing 20 pushups a day for 1 week”, or “squatting during commercials”.

The contest is open for one week, starting Sunday, March 31 and closing on Saturday, April 6.

*Please note, the giveaway is limited to USA residents only.

Background: Why am I offering this contest?

In January 2012, I ordered myself some clothing in my normal, post-childbearing size and was shocked when it arrived and didn’t fit! I weighed nearly as much as I had while I was pregnant with my children, and this was disturbing.

Instead of sending the clothes back, I joined Weight Watchers, and over the course of four or five months, dropped 22 lbs. In the summer, I attempted to get back into yoga and tried running a few times, but I couldn’t keep the routine up. Then, this past Christmas, my husband bought me a 3-month gym membership, and it was great! I went frequently, felt empowered and strong, sweated almost every day for a week or two at a time. Terrific.

And then the gym closed.

And the winter was long.

Doughnuts are again my comfort food.

But no more!

I’ve found SlimKicker. It’s a lot of like Weight Watchers, but I like it better because it’s like a game. When I record my food and activity, I get points toward a reward I give myself. Achieving a challenge means levelling up. It’s really positive and empowering, and I’m feeling enthusiastic again about portioning and getting active. SlimKicker also has lots of coupon codes such as Bowflex promo codes.

So get in on this, folks! Let’s do some brainstorming on little ways that will make a big impact on being fit and healthy! I can’t wait to see who’ll be expecting a blender on their doorstep next month!

A Ranger’s Tale — NEW COVER Reveal!

I’m so excited for my friend Mysti Parker — if you’re a fan of fantasy, romance, and elves, you’re going to love this! I read A Ranger’s Tale last summer, devouring it in a whole afternoon. I could not put it down. And now, with a new cover debut at the end of the month, I’m getting pumped to read it all over again. The mystery is driving me crazy, folks!

What will be on the new cover for A Ranger's Tale?The glimpses are tantalizing!

What will be on the new cover for A Ranger’s Tale?The glimpses are tantalizing!

Here’s author, blogger, and mother extraordinaire, Mysti Parker to tell you more:

The world of Tallenmere was born in January, 2011 with this first exciting story about Caliphany, an elven noblewoman who longs to leave her gilded cage, and Galadin, the half-elf former pirate who trains her to do just that. To better reflect its place in the burgeoning series and Caliphany’s choice between two good men, cover artist Caroline Andrus and I tore down the original cover to make room for a whole new look! 

Join us for this exciting reveal party on Facebook, Friday, March 29 from 5-10 PM EST. Bring a friend, too. There do be prizes, mateys!

Blurb:
In the world of Tallenmere, an elven noblewoman longed to leave her gilded cage. A half-breed former pirate wanted nothing more than to escape his guilty past. Easier said than done…

High elf Caliphany Aranea leads an enviable life as King Leopold’s niece and daughter of Sirius, Leogard’s most famous wizard. Yet, being forced to follow in her father’s footsteps and being betrothed to a man she doesn’t even like makes her want a taste of life outside the city walls. 

As a young boy, half-elf Galadin Trudeaux witnessed his parents’ death at the hands of pirates. After being raised by those same murderers and forced to do their bidding, he escaped and now lives an honest life as a sea merchant and ranger. 

When two brutes at Leogard Harbor attempt to kidnap Caliphany while she dreams of faraway lands, Galadin comes to her rescue. Impressed by his skills, she asks him to train her as a ranger. Though he is hesitant at first to train a woman of her class, Caliphany’s hefty sack of gold finally persuades him. Unfortunately, her father is not amused, and the two must escape before Caliphany faces a forced marriage and Galadin faces a noose.

From that moment on, she and Galadin embark on an adventure of a lifetime. Only if they can survive the trials ahead, will they find a love that stands the test of time.
