Genre: Historical

Publish Date: April 7, 2016

Publisher: Becca Andre

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

Seventeen-year-old Ian is used to pressure. Born into a necromancer family, he and his twin brother Lex exhibited uncommon magical potential at an early age that led their father to expect great things—from them both. That is until Lex’s blood gift fails to manifest. Or so everyone believes. For the past five years, Ian has been keeping a secret. A secret that—if it got out—would see his brother shunned, or worse. Lex does have a blood gift, but not every gift is a blessing, and not every recipient can manage the talent in his blood. As Lex’s sanity begins to slip, Ian knows the responsibility to raise his family’s fortunes is on his shoulders, and his alone. When he is offered an apprenticeship with one of the most influential men in the necromancer community, Lex convinces Ian that the connection would offer their family even more if Ian were to marry his elderly mentor’s “spinster” niece. Ian’s plan takes an unexpected turn when he discovers that Isabelle is not a spinster. She’s a young, beautiful, intelligent woman who, unfortunately, wants nothing to do with him. Now Ian must find a way to win her over before Lex attempts to elevate their family, his way. BONUS – Included in this ebook is the short story, Lords of the Dead (Total word count for both the novella and the short story is over 52,000 words.)

6 Frugal and Fabulous Last Minute Christmas Gifts

I’m already done with my holiday shopping, but I understand that some of you out there can’t read a calendar and always need to do things at the last minute. So for you, I made a list of my favorite last minute gifts. It’s kind of like Oprah’s favorite things list, but not everything costs more than the average person earns in a month. In fact, nothing on my list costs more than thirty bucks. So as long as you have a mall in your town, you can find these items at the very last minute. I’m still not sure why you want to wait to buy presents, but that is your business.

Clinique Chubby Sticks
What woman doesn’t want a chubby stick? Get your mind out of the gutter. Women want these chubby sticks because they are purse worthy and safe for travel. Clinique makes eye shadow, lip stick, and blush chubby sticks. They have no applicators and do not require sharpeners.

Bath and Body Works Vanilla
I love Bath and Body Works Vanilla lotions and soaps. They even have candles that will make your whole house smell like a bakery. So stop watching that Elf marathon and get over to the Bath and Body Works store now. Be prepared for 782 salespeople to “help” you, though. If you don’t like to talk to people much, like me, you may want to pretend to speak a language other than English. Warning: do not pick Spanish or French.

A Great Book
Almost everyone likes to read. Personally, I don’t trust people who hate books. Most of the people on your list would enjoy a book of some sort. Stephen King books usually suck me in like a black hole. My favorite Stephen King book ever is 11/22/63. I could not stop reading it. If self-driving cars were real, I would have read while driving. It’s that good.

Gift Cards
Just about any human would appreciate a gift card. If you have dogs or cats on your shopping list, DO NOT get them a gift card. They will eat it. Humans, on the other hand, will find them quite useful. There are a lot of different gift cards out there. Grocery stores and drug stores usually have a display of them, so you don’t even need to go to a particular store to buy one. You can also buy them online, but at this point, there’s a chance it won’t arrive before Christmas. So, put down that cocoa and put on some pants, and get out there. You’ve got cards to buy.

Music is one of the best last minute gifts because it can be delivered instantly. You can purchase an album online and have a link emailed to the gift recipient. Then, they can download it to their iPhone or other non-Apple device. Yay for technology covering up for your procrastination!

Be Betty Crocker
You could bake cookies, or a cake, or maybe a pie, depending on your skill level. Personally, I can make tasty cookies, but they tend to look like something the dog tracked through the house. If you enjoy baking, are low on cash, and have a few hours before gift giving time you could bake some holiday magic in your kitchen.

There you have it. I just saved your behind. You’re welcome. Aren’t you glad you waited until NOW to buy Christmas gifts? Now, put the glowing screen down and go shopping. I hope you can get a parking space.

Disclaimer: I have purchased everything listed because I love these products. I am not being paid by any of the companies above, especially the Kraft people. They would not pay me to advertise their holiday creations because my Oreo snowmen would look they stepped out of a snow zombie apocalypse.

5 Great Last Minute Christmas Gifts For Every Personality

I don’t know where November and December has gone! One minute I was decorating my mermaid costume for Halloween, and the next minute I’m trying to decipher how many calories did I just inhale in creamy eggnog goodness.

If you’re reading this then you know you’re like me and slightly behind schedule.
Ok procrastinators; let’s have a heart to heart. You’re way behind schedule. Can your holiday shopping be completed with less than a week to go? Can your gifts look thoughtful, time consuming, and as adorable as your personality? For all the special people in your life that deserve a gift, here are some great last minute ideas.

1. For the Entreprenuer


A watch on someone’s wrist says, “I’m organized, classy, and trendy. I value my time and like to stay on top of things. In other words, I have it together.” For the entrepreneur in your life, a watch is thoughtful yet practical. Nothing says “Like a Boss” like a Rolex.

2. For the Fashionista


For any fashionista on the go, the crossbody bag is the ultimate necessity. This fun Kate Spade bag is not only functional, but also covered in glitter. Its gold-embossed hardware and strap tone down the bag just enough to make this a perfect “day to night” accessory.

3. For the Writer


This is a fantastic and unusual gift for the writer in your life. Detailed in “newspaper style” print, this bag is great for a weekend bag for traveling or one for holding the writing supplies, laptop, and heading to the nearest coffee shop.

4. For the Athlete


The Fitbit Charge not only keeps track of your exercise, it keeps track of your overall activity for the day. With a built in heart rate monitor, pedometer, and gps, the Athlete in your life will be able to monitor their calories burned, distance, or steps taken. The battery life is extremely long; lasting 7 to 10 days.

5. For the Chef


We all have someone in our lives who not only loves to cook, but whose house we love to eat at. The Black Truffle is seen as the “black diamond of cusine.” Why not treat them to an ingredient that they probably wouldn’t buy for themselves, but that they will enjoy?

Good luck out there shoppers!

Last-Minute Gifts for Every Makeup-Loving Lady in Your Life

I know what you’re thinking: “Makeup is so personal. I don’t want to get her something she’ll never use.” I’m not telling you to buy her foundation or concealer (both of which are very personal). I’m talking about giving her collectible makeup sets and palettes that are only available this time of year, most of which bundle together products for a discount.

Let’s put it this way, I have more makeup than you could ever imagine and I still want the Tarte holiday signature item every year. Why? Well, the makeup is fabulous (skin-loving ingredients, staying power, flattering colors) and Tarte is always generous when it comes to stuffing these bags to the brim. But it’s also because I actually still use their makeup bags and containers I’ve amassed over the years. In fact right now I’m gazing at the mirrored jewelry box (Tarte 2011 Holiday Starlette Makeup Vanity) that once was full of makeup and now houses my jewelry.

And, you actually get rewarded for waiting so long. Many of these treasures are on sale! Everybody wins.

Tarte Bon Voyage Collector’s Set and Travel Bag ($ 59)


It’s only fitting that I start with Tarte’s 2014 signature holiday item. This Parisian vacation-inspired set, encased in a purple and gold makeup bag, includes: a palette of 20 Amazonian clay eye shadows, Deluxe lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara, Limited-edition deluxe cheek stain in Muse, LipSurgence lip gloss in Visionary, LipSurgence lip tint in Romantic, Deluxe maracuja oil, Deluxe smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder. Available at

Make Up For Ever Makeup Studio Case (now $ 39)


She doesn’t shy away from adding a little shimmer to her eye makeup. Give her this magical little black box that has 12 vivid eye shadows, a step-by-step guide and full-size Artist Liner eyeliner. Bonus: The black case is certainly reusable as a jewelry box. I was surprised it didn’t play music (though I’m pretty sure I heard Chopin when I saw the shadows). Available at

Shu Uemura Shupette Has-it-All Eye & Lip Palette ($ 89)


Perhaps she loves kitties as much as her cat eyes? Then you’re going to want to get her something from this collaboration collection between Shu Uemura and Karl Lagerfeld. Inspired by fashion’s favorite feline Shupette, this kit includes a brightly colored makeup palette and a fun furry clutch that looks like, well, Shupette. Available at

TheBalm Balmsai Eyeshadow and Brow Palette with Shaping Stencils ($ 39.50)


This is the ideal palette for your friend who always compliments your eye makeup but complains she can’t apply it to herself. This eye shadow and brow powder palette includes stencils for making the perfect brows, smoky eyes and winged eyes dummy proof. Available at

Stila New Year’s Eve Glam Set (now $ 49)


She loves statement jewelry. She loves a statement lip. This collaboration between Stila and Bauble Bar gives her all the essentials she needs to get gorgeous on New Year’s Eve: a shimmery white shadow for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes, a longwear mascara, a fiery red liquid lip and a fun bracelet. Bonus: She can help her hangover the next day with a little retail therapy — the set includes a $ 10 gift card to Available at

Flower Total Package Complete Set ($ 19.98)


Your teen dream will actually look away from her phone for a moment to tinker with this makeup set, which includes 4 Shadow Play Eyeshadows, 4 Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Colors and 1 Lash Knockout Volumizing Mascara. Bonus: Even if she overdoes it, the hues are so pretty she will still look chic. Available at Walmart and

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette ($ 29)


This is a lot of gorgeous eye shadow shades packed into one tiny palette. A collaboration with makeup artist and social media powerhouse Tamanna, this palette is perfect for any woman who loves to play with different looks. Available at

Hourglass Limited Edition Ambient Lighting Blush Palette ($ 58)


She always strategizes where she’s going to sit to avoid bad lighting. Don’t let her ever stumble into unflattering light with this soft-focus cheek palette that blends finishing powders and blush colors to give her a natural-looking glow. Available at

Topshop Smoky Eye Set ($ 24)
This out-of-the-box smoky eye set will give her everything she needs to create the sultriest of smoky eyes on New Year’s Eve. The set includes a Smokey Eye Kit in Golden Aura, 3D Curve Mascara and Kohl in Coal. Available at

Sunne’s Gift’s: 10 Reasons Why All Little Black Girls Should Rock Natural Hair

1. Natural Afro-Textured Hair is Magical
2014-07-09-Reason1.jpgIn the children’s book entitled Sunne’s Gift, the main character’s beautiful afro-textured hair enables the character to make the sun rise and set. All afros have magical abilities. What hair defies gravity, replicates the DNA spiral and contains the force of whirlwinds and tornadoes? Natural afro-textured hair! Guess what? Most little black girls have that kind of hair!

2. Natural Afro-textured Hair is Versatile and Convenient
You may decide to gently braid, twist, cornrow, threadwrap, lock, fluff or comb out your little girl’s natural afro-textured hair. All natural styles are beautiful. Moreover, if you decide to gently braid it, twist it etc. you may not have to style the hair again for days or weeks. How convenient!

3. Natural Afro-Textured Hair May Allow Your Child To Stand Out from The Crowd – That is A Good Thing
Afro-textured hair can be found in all races of people. But, people of African descent appear to have afro-textured most often. If your child goes to a school with mostly children of Asian and European descent, her afro-textured hair may make her stand out from the crowd. That is a good thing. We should teach our girls that there is beauty and power in difference. Conformity reaps few rewards.

4. Relaxers Contain Toxic Chemicals That Can Cause Burns and Lesions.
By keeping your child’s hair natural, you can avoid relaxers. Relaxers generally contain sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide, both caustic and corrosive agents. Sodium hydroxide is poured on animal carcasses in order to help make the carcasses dissolve for easy disposal and it is also a major ingredient in many drain cleaners. Both sodium hydroxide and calcium hydroxide are the active ingredients of hair removal creams such as Nair and Magic Shave. Severe burns or lesions can develop when these chemicals come into contact with the skin or scalp. This is not surprising given the burning sensation and scalp burns that people often experience when using relaxers. Although no- lye relaxers containing calcium hydroxide and guanidine carbonate are advertised to cause fewer scalp burns and lesions than their lye counterparts, little evidence bolsters this claim. Giving a child a relaxer “treatment” is kind of like pouring liquid Drano on a child’s hair and scalp. Sheesh!

5. Relaxers May Cause Hair Loss and Breakage.
The chemicals that corrode animal carcasses, dissolve hair in clogs and burn off hair on legs can clearly cause hair loss and hair breakage. I personally experienced severe hair loss and breakage due to relaxers at ages 7 and 16 and I was emotionally devastated both times. The boxes that contain the relaxers warn of hair loss and breakage. Terrible!

6. When The Chemicals in Relaxers Come Into Contact With The Eyes or Are Ingested, Those Chemicals Can Lead to Serious Injury.
I have a four year-old and a one year-old and I can’t imagine putting a relaxer in their hair because, like most kids their ages, they are busy-bodies. My mother relaxed my hair when I was four years old and my sister got her first relaxer when she was three. It really boggles my mind now. I would be deathly afraid that my toddlers would touch their hair during the process and then put their finger in their eyes or mouths. Such acts could lead to blindness or severe injury. The 2000 report entitled “Hair Relaxer Misuse: Don’t Relax” in the Official Journal of The American Academy of Pediatrics discusses dozens of cases in which toddlers have experienced burns on their lips, tongues or other parts due to contact with relaxers. Horrible!

7. Relaxers Use May Be Linked to Early Puberty in Girls.
A 2011 report entitled “Childhood Hair Product Use and Earlier Age at Menarche in a Racially Diverse Study Population: A Pilot Study” in the Annals of Epidemiology suggests that some hair products used by African-Americans contain estrogen, as well as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), such as phthalates and parabens. These chemicals are hormonally active and can be absorbed through the skin and inhaled. Hair oils and relaxers were most significantly associated with earlier recalled age of menarche (onset of menstruation). This report noted a previous study’s finding that African-American girls between the ages of 6 and 11 years of age have double the mono-ethyl phthalate levels compared to children of other racial/ethnic groups. A report titled “Premature Sexual Development in Children Following the Use of Estrogen- or Placenta-containing Hair Products,” explained that certain hair products appeared to accelerate pubertal development in children as young as fourteen months old! It seems possible that relaxers and other hair products may cause little black girls to “become women” before their time.

8. Relaxers May Be Linked to Uterine Fibroids and Other Reproductive Disorders.
Another 2011 article in the American Journal of Epidemiology entitled “Hair Relaxer Use and Risk of Uterine Leiomyomata in African-American Women” raised the hypothesis that hair relaxer use increases risk of uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are tumors in the uterus that can cause heavy bleeding, severe pain and complications during delivery and pregnancy, and they are the leading indication for hysterectomy in U.S. women. African-American women have 2-3 times the incidence of uterine fibroids of white women and the lifetime risk of uterine fibroids for African-Americans women is estimated to be as high as 80 percent. This ethnic disparity is not adequately explained by established risk factors such as alcohol, obesity and physical inactivity. It is possible that the lesions and burns of the scalp caused by hair relaxers facilitate entry of hormonally active compounds commonly found in relaxers into the body, thereby increasing black women’s risk of uterine fibroids. Dr. Wise, lead author of the hair relaxers and fibroids article, is currently conducting a follow up study of environmental factors and fertility (PRESTO).

We can’t make sure that eat their vegetables or sleep early. Nor can we protect them from hormonally active compounds in food processing and in the air. But we can control what we put in their hair.

9. Relaxing Your Child’s Hair May Give Your Child The Impression That Her Natural Hair is Not Good Enough.
What message are we sending our daughters about the state of their natural hair when we place our girls at risk of burns, reproductive disorders and early puberty by putting toxic and caustic chemicals in their hair in order to alter it? What is so bad about the kinks, coils, spirals and curls that God gave our girls that those kinks have to be eliminated by any torturous or toxic means necessary? Are we putting their spirits to death by sending them messages of self-hate? I’m not sure of the answers. It is possible that the issue is not that serious. But as caretakers of little black girl magbees (magical beings), we have to ask such difficult and inconvenient questions. The current climate of hair-bullying in schools and the military makes these questions even more timely. In my experience, black mothers are among the most generous, loving, self-sacrificing and devoted human beings on the planet, but many of us are unaware of all of the potential dangers of relaxers and therefore are not making informed choices. Moreover, black mothers face overwhelming pressures to make little girls comply with notions of beauty that are often rooted in white supremacy. The harsh criticism that Blue Ivy’s afro received is evidence of those pressures regarding styling black girls’ hair.

10. We Should Teach Our Children That They Are Perfect and Magical Just as They Are.
Regardless of whether or not you believe that relaxing a child’s hair presents any physical or psychological danger, we can all agree that children of all races deserve affirmation and should be comfortable with their natural selves. In my children’s book, Sunne’s Gift: How Sunne Overcame Bullying to Reclaim God’s Gift , the Creator tells children “You are all my children, made in my image” and “I made no mistakes in creating you all with your beautiful and varied colors, hair types and features.” I hope that all parents will read Sunne’s Gift to their children because that is the message that ALL of our children need to hear. They need to hear that they are perfect as they are in order to have the confidence to face all of the challenges that life brings.
