*Book Tour & Giveaway* Three Star Island by Kat Caulberg


Three Star Island
by Kat Caulberg
Genre: Historical Time Travel Romance 

Stepping through a time portal into 1716, historian Penny Saunders didn't expect to get stranded in the past. Five years later, now a pariah to the townsfolk of Three Star Island, she endures solitude and ridicule until a hurricane tosses a dangerous castaway onto her shores.


William Payne's history precedes him. Pirate, outlaw, and ruthless captain, he's a monster among men . . . or so it seems. Desperately seeking redemption for his blood-soaked past, he upends Penny's world by showing her a passion she's never experienced.

But time is closing in on them; the governor of the Carolinas has rescinded his pirates' pardon, the locals are growing suspicious of Penny's new houseguest, and she can't keep her secrets from William forever. When everything falls apart, she must use both wits and weapons against lawmen and pirates alike to save the one man who would tear down the world for her.





For as long as she can remember, Kat Caulberg has been obsessed with history and the paranormal. Somewhat to the dismay of her parents, her interests led her into both museums and graveyards as a child, a trend which has continued into her adulthood. This has influenced her reading tastes and her writing, whether it be a good ghost story, thrilling tales of time-travel, or devouring endless volumes of ancient warfare.


She signed a contract with Soul Mate Publishing in 2018 for her first novel, Three Star Island, a time-travel story set in 1721. She enjoys writing strong, quirky heroines, and has a weakness for cheeky heroes who have as much compassion as they have flaws.

Kat currently lives in North Carolina with her Englishman and a few cats.

To find a dangerous grimoire, they’ll have to break a few rules…and maybe their hearts.
When warlock Tony Castillo picks up Cassandra Sandoval at the airport, the copper-haired witch brings his restless, aimless life into razor-sharp focus…and triggers a wince-inducing case of foot-in-mouth disease. Luckily, her cool, hazel-green gaze betrays not a flicker of answering attraction. Nope, Cassandra is all business. Which Tony can understand, given the magnitude of her task.
Cassandra has one job: retrieve the de la Paz grimoires from the heavily warded hiding place at Tony’s family home, conceal them with her unique shielding power, and immediately return them to her clan’s territory.

They find Tony’s mother unconscious and the grimoires missing, the only clue a slimy residue reeking of Escobar magic. As they race to get the dangerous books out of the wrong hands, Cassandra and Tony cross a few boundaries, break a few more rules, and find something neither expected — love. But if they fail, nothing will shield them, or the world as they know it, from unrelenting evil.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Finding Perdita by April Grey-GUEST POST


Finding Perdita
by April Grey
Genre: Dark Urban Fantasy 

Fairy Tales can come true, it can happen to you...Run!

Down on her luck and out-of-work, actress Cindy White's life changes for the worse when her roommate kicks her out. Landing in new digs in an old Chelsea tenement Cindy discovers a tunnel to the land of Perdita, a place she'd thought her father had made up in the fairy tales he'd once told her. 
A dangerous, ruined place of fairies, demons and captives, like her father who she thought was dead.
In this dark fantasy, a young woman discovers her true self and must align it with the old in leaving the world she knows behind in an effort to free her father.





April Grey's short stories are collected in The Fairy Cake Bakeshop and in I'll Love You Forever. She is also the author of two urban fantasy novels: Chasing the Trickster and it's sequel, St. Nick's Favor.


She edited the anthologies: Hell's Bells: Wicked Tunes, Mad Musicians and Cursed Instruments; Hell's Garden: Mad, Bad and Ghostly Gardeners, Hell's Grannies: Kickass Tales of the Crone and last year's, Hell's Kitties and Other Beastly Beasts.

She and her family live in Hell's Kitchen, NYC in a building next to a bedeviled garden. Gremlins, sprites or pixies, something mischievous, lurks therein. Someday she'll find out. Please visit www.aprilgrey.blogspot for her latest news.





GUEST POST
 What inspired you to write this book?
I call Finding Perdita “Barbarella goes to Narnia.” I still remember the wonderful anthropomorphic creatures from The Lion, the Witch and the Warlock read to me as a child. My father had died just a few years before Perdita was written and part of the book encompassed my longing to find him. Also the main characters are actors involved in careers which involve commercial endeavors such as soap operas and action films, but their hearts are still in the Shakespearean productions of their college years. My background is in theater so I pulled on my history in that field to write this novel.

How did you come up with the title of your first novel?
Originally it had a very different title and was written in two parts with two different titles. Eventually I saw that Perdita, a character from Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale, symbolized all that the main character Cindy White was looking for. Finding Perdita, was Cindy finding her lost self, and I think it’s a journey of discovery all young women should take. The triple goddess: Maiden, Mother and Crone, has some influence in the writing of this novel.


Who designed your book covers?

I used artwork provided by Dirk Strangely for several of my Hell’s anthologies but with Finding Perdita the cover art was created by Dawne Dominque of Caliburn Press. After Caliburn crashed and burned I bought the artwork since I really loved her style. You can find her covers at Dusktildawn Designs. https://dusktildawndesigns.com/book-cover-art-portfolio/


If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Either a young Kaley Cuoco or Anna Faris. Though a dark fantasy, Cindy White is off-beat with a snarky sense of humor.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
Oh, the characters are in charge. I don’t plot my books unless I get stuck. Originally, Finding Perdita was all in first person from Cindy’s POV, but they Josh wanted equal time so I changed it all to third person to allow a second viewpoint. The romantic through line then became much stronger because Josh had a say in the matter. He really fought for his relationship with her. That’s what happens to me, a secondary character wants more time and fights for it.

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
I think we all have a Perdita, a lost self, that needs to be re-discovered. Puberty is a bitch and so often women start to take second place in their needs to whomever they are in a relationship to. So there is a lesson in Perdita, helping women to see more in themselves than they thought they had, and to go for it.

Have you written any other books that are not published?

There’s The Lycanthrope’s Tale, a Regency Gothic, and Griffit City (working title) a ghost city book. They are both still WIPs so I won’t say much more.
