Blog Tour with Giveaway: Make Believe by J. A. Belfield and others

I'm super excited to be back today (I've been without internet for 2 weeks!!!) 
starting this new year off right with an awesome tour stop for 
Make Believe 
an incredible compilation of fantasy short stories.  
See my review of this fantabulous book here.

Did you know that all the stories within are inspired by the cover art???
So let's introduce this awesomesauce of a book.....

by J.A. Belfield, Jennifer M. Eaton, J. Keller Ford, Terri Rochenski, Lynda R. Young, Kelly Said
Sacrificial Oath by Terri Rochenski
An impetuous act unwittingly makes Alesuela the fulfillment of the Sovereign's Blood Oath to their Goddess. In five days, she'll be forced to make the greatest choice of her life: become the virginal sacrifice already promised, or force the man she loves most to die in her place. With an impossible choice in front of her, she searches for ways to undo the oath, and in her quest, finds not everything in her life is as she expects.

The Amulet of Ormisez by J. Keller Ford
There is only one way to save Elton Fletcher's brother from an insanity-ridden death. After years away from home, fighting for his people, Elton returns to discover his only sibling, Cayden, possessed by greed and malice, and responsible for malicious, unthinkable deeds. Cayden, though, isn't the only one afflicted by the Amulet of Ormisez, and Elton finds himself in yet another battle, where the price of failure could be his own life.

Birthright by Lynda R. Young
Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is impossible. She's tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize her even though she's never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her. Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there's something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else wants her to leave, and they won't stop until she's dead.

Petrified by Kelly Said
A mysterious storm has replaced summer with winter, devastating crops and smothering Castle lands in snow. Prince Sterling August stands alone as a leader, lost in personal grief as well as a desire to help his people but with an inability to do either. The answers he needs await him, but without Lochlyn, a woman who's just as isolated as Sterling, he'll never see what stands before him, cloaked in illusion.

Last Winter Red by Jennifer M. Eaton
Emily is a Red, a woman whose sole purpose in life is to produce offspring. When her husband dies and leaves her childless, she risks her life and forsakes the safety of Terra-a disease-free city born after the nuclear holocaust. Beyond its boundaries, she knows, survives a man with whom she can be properly paired. The Outside, though, holds secrets the government struggles to keep, and what Emily discovers on her quest for a mate will change her life forever. 

Escort to Insanity by J.A. Belfield
From a charity auction, to a stroll in the park, to the craziest night of her life. Nicole Harrington can't help but wonder how a simple event went so drastically wrong. Of course, the male escort she booked is wholly to blame. Not only charming but shrewdly intelligent, Benjamin Gold drags Nicole into a platoon of unimaginable problems-ones from which she'll have to find the courage just to survive.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Thanks so much for hosting us today!

  2. Sounds like wonderful reads...thanks for sharing and for the giveaway chance!

  3. Welcome back...I know how it is to be stripped of internet for a brief time! Maddening!

    This is an excellent book. Or at least all the excerpts I've read. The rafflecopter never did finish loading, otherwise I'd enter.

    Hey...I'll grab your blog button, but I would like to ask, how did you get that html container box? The one under your button that holds the code. I've got a button, and the code for it, but can't create a box or find one to hold it. I'd love that little bit of info, if you can spare it. Thanks. :o)

    1. Sorry you weren't able to enter. Maybe when you stop by again, you'll be able to get it to load (not sure why it was being stubborn). As far as the button box, I don't understand a whole lot of html code, but someone else gave me the code to put it all together. Blogger won't let me leave it in the comment box, but if you email me, I'll be happy to send the code I use. :)

    2. Your blogger profile email link doesn't work. I appreciate it!

    3. I think whoever has created the Rafflecopter form can manually add an entry if someone is having a lot of problems entering themselves. You just have to log in and click to moderate the form, and there's an option to do so there.

      And cheers, Danielle, for hosting the giveaway for the tour. VERY much appreciated. :D

  4. Wow! How awesome to put together a compilation of short stories based on the cover art alone!! This is a pretty genius idea!!
    Looks like a great read!

    Glad you have internet back up!!!!! :)
