Glad I found this group...

Just want to introduce myself.. I'm Shawna Hill and I currently have 2 books out, In Between Lies and Intimate Illusions. I have been looking for reviewers to review my books to gain more exposure ...and am finding that its been quite a challenge since its not PNR, ore self pub, or YA/PNR, etc. ....anyway, stop by my page if you have time...follow if you'd like and I will do the same in return.

Thanks!

This is an amazing story of a black girl caught up in the ghetto.. So many have heard this storyline but this one has such a great twist to it. I loved it.

This is NOT spam. I'm sick and i need help. I'm not asking for you to give me money, JUST TO BUY A BOOK, THE UNDEAD HEART. This is a Paranormal Romance vampire book and it's a great book!

I found out today that I have cervical cancer. My insurance wil pay for all but 2600.00. I have to pay the rest of it in advance before they'll start the treatment. I have severe rhumitoid arthritis and live on disability. The only way I have to make the money i need for treatment is to sell the book i authored, the Undead Heart, for sell on amazon in hard cover and Kindle and barnes and noble for nook. My royalties are only 4.83 per bokk sold so I would need to sell 534 book to get the money I need and I don;t have long to do it. The Kindle and nook prices are 6.99 and the amazon hard copy is 18.80. I have a 15 year old son and I don't want to die. You can find the book detal and how to read a kindle book at http://www.theblood thirstseries. weebly.com.

The Undead Heart is written by Tate Jackson

MY BEST FRIEND SAID NOBODY IS GOING TO HELP ME THIS WAY BUT i HOPE I PROVE HER WRONG!

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL THOSE THAT FIND IT IN THEIR HEART TO HELP A STRANGER!
If you buy The Undead Heart be sure you fill out the form on my website and I'll send you a free copy of Blood Thirst when it's released in late May!!!
