Archangel Michaela, Heaven's General, learns that one simple mistake can have a thousand consequences. Framed for crimes she didn't commit against Heaven, Michaela must prove her innocence. But the line between right and wrong is ever shifting, and Michaela, disgraced and wingless, discovers the holy angels have their own plan for Heaven, and it is one that may prove to be the End of Days.

A group of rogue angels have turned their attention to the End of Days, and they won't rest until they obtain the tools of Earth's final destruction: The Seven Seals. But Archangel Michaela knows the secret about the seals, and she'll fight to the death to protect them. Even amidst the devastation on Earth, Michaela struggles with her love for Gabriel, a recently fallen angel.

In the final installment of the End of Days series, a heavenly civil war breaks out amongst the angels, and the stakes are higher than ever before. It's the war Michaela wanted, but she's realising it might not be the one she's meant to fight. What is mercy and sacrifice in the face of tyranny and madness? It's a lesson Michaela might not live long enough to fully understand.



Meg Collett lives deep in the hills of Tennessee where the cell phone service is a blessing and the internet is a myth of epic proportions. She is the mother of one giant horse named Elle and two dogs named Wylla and Mandy. Her husband is a saint for putting up with her ragtag life. End of Days is her first series.

Giveaway winner!

First I must apologise for how late this is - about a full day! I was unable to post at the stated time, and figured an additional day couldn't hurt. With posts that went around every social media to reach over 200,000 viewers or more, I must say that I am a little disappointed at the turn out of this giveaway. The stats on the post alone were amazing, and I only wish that the comments were a quarter of the total views.

But without further ado, let's announce the winner! Allison Leighann, congratulations! I hope you will enjoy this read, and if you want to gift that to someone else then please feel free! Let me know the name and email you would like this sent to, and it will be added to the list of winners and be out at the end of the month.

Allison entered with a creative piece that continued the prompt I left, which I will leave below since I'm blogging from Stacie's house and don't have access to the many promotional photos I've collected:

Her concentration waned as she stared at the blank canvas and her eyes wandered to the shadow she had seen before in the day. As she fixed her eyes where the shadow had existed only hours earlier, she could've sworn that the shadow she'd seen had the specific outline of him. But even as the slight desperation in her brain wanted it to be so, her logic told her that there was no way that it could've been. He'd been gone for two years. Two whole years. The fact that she was even still thinking about him, seeing him in overplayed song lyrics, old memories, and now, apparently, shadows, was something that she really needed to get a handle on. Old lyrics were one thing, but to miss someone so sharply that it invaded everyday observations such as a shadow on a wall - that was borderline fanatical.

GIVEAWAY: Digital copy of Tortured by Kate Givans

Are you a fan of adult or contemporary novels? Perhaps you are looking for a new book to read? I've got just the thing for you. Tortured by Kate Givans was just published in July, and in honor of this I'll be doing a giveaway. Tortured is a romantic drama about loss, healing, and love's ability to reach beyond scars and secrets, no matter how deep or hidden.

WARNING: This book is intended for 18+ readers ONLY. Potentially triggering content and concepts in books to follow. 

More than a year after the death of his best friend, Josh is still tormented by the past. Everything changes when free-spirited Willow barges into his life. She challenges him, helps him feel something other than the overwhelming pain, sadness, and anger.
There's just one problem. 
Underneath that carefree spirit, Willow is elusive and secretive.Josh believes she may be fighting a few demons of her own, but he harder he tries to uncover the truth, the more she pushes him away. 
Can Josh get her to open up before it’s too late? Or will he discover that some secrets are better left untold?

This synopsis had me, and I've been lucky enough to win a signed paperback of this book! Though I couldn't help myself and do have the Kindle version. One lucky winner will be getting their own Kindle, Kobo, Nook, or PDF version of their own. 

For your chance to win Tortured by Kate Givans, all you need to do is respond to the following prompt in the comments. You can do this however you choose, so long as it is creative. One entry per person. 

Her concentration waned as she stared at the blank canvas and her eyes wandered to the shadow she had seen before in the day.

You have between now, 3 August, and 7 August at 13:00 PST which is when I will be closing this giveaway. The winner will be chosen then and announced at 21:00 PST the same day. 

Please leave your comment with the best way to contact you, as I will need a response within 48 hours of making the announcement. If there is no response a new winner will be chosen. The winner will receive their prize after 29 August because of the amount of people taking part in this blitz.

Quirky, clumsy, and always a little off-key, Kate Givans has always loved books and the words contained within. Now that she's writing the stories, she's filling them with broken characters, angst, and even a few of those happily-ever-afters that seem to evade us in real life. 

When not writing, this wife and mother of five can be found guzzling coffee, day-dreaming, dancing for no reason at all, playing with the voices in her head, watching her favourite shows (Originals, Grey's, OUAT, The Following), listening to music, and reminding herself to "breathe." 

Connect with her here:

For bonus entries, you may refer whoever you like and let them know to leave the name you entered with in their comment. The more people you get here, the more entries you get! (Kate and I don't count.) +1 entry per referral, +2 entries for those following me. If you've stumbled upon this through a street team on facebook, you are exempt from posting the prompt or get +1 entries for stating so - thanks for helping out indie authors!
