Random Babblings and DESTRUCTION!

In case you missed the Twitter announcement, I did a podcast interview with the amazing chicks over at Girls in the Stacks. They are so much fun, and we all have issues staying on topic, but maybe you'll learn something new.


And while you're here, I just want to introduce you to a book that is so much FUN. Sharon Bayliss is a good friend of mine, and she allowed me the honor of reading her book prior to being published. I fell in love with all of the characters, and in hate.

In case you missed my 5 star review, I'm posting it below. Make sure you head over to Amazon TODAY and grab this freshly published novel. You won't be disappointed. Unless you have no soul, you're jaded, and you suck. Just kidding. Maybe. Just...

MY REVIEW: I absolutely ADORED this book by Sharon Bayliss. Destruction starts out with a bang and doesn't stop! You will be hooked by the cowardly David, who has two children with his secret dead lover that he needs to bring home. You won't even know why you love him or why you're rooting for him, or why he just keeps messing up over and over again. But you will.

His family is nuts. Absolutely nuts. Yet they are so normal. They all have their doubts and fears about where they fit into in life, and the mother, Amanda, is just so freaking real and insane that you will both hate her and cheer her on.

All the characters have a weak side and a strong side, and as the story progresses, this modern family with dark wizarding powers can't seem to identify which way is up and down!

Go. Read. Enjoy!

David Vandergraff wants to be a good man. He goes to church every Sunday, keeps his lawn trim and green, and loves his wife and kids more than anything. Unfortunately, being a dark wizard isn't a choice.

Eleven years ago, David's secret second family went missing. When his two lost children are finally found, he learns they suffered years of unthinkable abuse. Ready to make things right, David brings the kids home even though it could mean losing the wife he can’t imagine living without. 

Keeping his life together becomes harder when the new children claim to be dark wizards. David believes they use this fantasy to cope with their trauma. Until, David's wife admits a secret of her own—she is a dark wizard too, as is David, and all of their children.  

Now, David must parent two hurting children from a dark world he doesn’t understand and keep his family from falling apart. All while dealing with the realization that everyone he loves, including himself, may be evil.
