From Me to You – How are you holding up? #pandemic2020

How’s your quarantine going? I’ve been out in the car for drive thru coffee and a meal in the last I don’t know how many days! Over a week in the house. My daughter and husband still work so they’ve been stopping at the store when we run out of stuff on their way home. My husband is security for a manufacturing plant that is considered essential and my daughter is a nurse. Neither has a choice to stay home.

I’m happy to say the toilet paper freak out seems to be done! We can find it on the shelves again. In large part that is due to the stores putting their foot down and imposing limits. The only item I’ve seen totally gone was milk and baby wipes. So that the people that need them, you know, BABIES, weren’t able to get them. It seems weird. Schools are closed. Bars, restaurants, hair salons, gyms and all non essential businesses closed. It’s like a ghost town where I live. That’s hard to say in a town of 16,000 people. It’s a testament to our county that we were one of the last counties in southern eastern Wisconsin to actually have a case of Covid-19. We now have 3 in the county. For once people weren’t trying to get out of Dodge! LOL, I live in Dodge county.

So, since I’ve been stuck at home, we’ve been doing puzzles, playing games, cooking new recipes, babysitting and writing. I just put out Saving Grace (if you missed my posts, lol) and am already working on the next in the series. I’m working on trying to give it a name, but not having any luck with it!I

‘ve been having some of my books on sale, but the Zon will only let me put my books in KU on sale for free and only for 5 days. So, instead, check out my website, https://www.beverlyovalle.com. I’m going to put the first book of A Dragon’s Fated Heart series up for free. And the prequel. If it will let me. If it won’t I’ll put it down to .01. I’ll do that after I get this posted, so give me an hour! I’m no longer as techy as I used to be! Look for Rise of the Dragons (prequel) and Stealing Hope (book1). It should be under my shop tab. You should be able to download mobi (for kindle) copies and epub (tablets, nook, ipad) copies from there. Hopefully by noon central time, I’ll have it done. If it works, they should be either free or on sale (depending on what it lets me do!) for a week.

 

 

 

So tell me, what are you doing during the pandemic? Give me ideas!

 

📣Free through 4/3!📣

Now Live ~ Saving Grace

Saving Grace

A Dragon’s Fated Heart book 3

 

The apocalypse had come and gone.

Secrets lie buried waiting to be found.

Dragons are not the only ones awakening to a new world.

 

Grace has always felt a bit like an outsider, even in her own family. She preferred to do things on her own, ignoring her loneliness. That all changes when Rog barrels into her life, opening her eyes to so much more.

Dragon shifter Rog has seen what problems hiding your inner dragon from your mate brings. Saving his mate from a precarious situation, he changes in front of her. Her awe and hesitant acceptance have him wrapped around her finger in a heartbeat.

Together they find a hidden, cryonic facility. Do they awaken the lost souls hidden in the depth of the mountain? Dare they take the chance of possibly bringing back the diseases to once again ravage their world?

Those are easy questions, but how can Rog explain the mating ritual to change Grace into a dragon involves himself and other dragons giving her more pleasure in a once in a lifetime experience?

Excerpt:

Hark burped, flame slipping out.

“Watch it.” Rog spat a burst of flame back.

“Pfft. You know it won’t hurt you.”  Hark rolled over on his back. “What do you think humans used this for?”

“It’s a road of some sort. I’m not sure what they needed such a fancy one for.” Rog looked around. “It doesn’t seem like they even finished it.”

Surrounding them, equipment stood, metal pieces crisscrossing into the air. Cables hung down, attached to long metal forms. Columns stood nearby, standing, solid forms of stone reaching into the sky with nothing on them.

“If they only knew what would happen, do you think they would have built so many useless things?” Hark twisted, scratching his back against the loose stone on the ground.

Rog shrugged, looking around. “Maybe. Humans do many useless things.”

Hark rolled, settling on his stomach against the black. “It is warm, though.”

Rog wiggled, stretching next to him. The warmth of the black stone seeping into his belly. “It is. It may be useless to the humans, but I like it.”

The storm continued to rage above them. The cool rain splashed off his scales running off him to the sides of the road. Opening his mouth, Rog rolled out his tongue capturing drops and swallowing them.

“Do you think we will ever find our mates?”

So today, I’ve got an excerpt for you!

 

Excerpt:

 

Hark slapped his tail down, chortling as water coated Rog.

Rog shivered. The water was so cold. It didn’t seem to bother Hark. Rog would prefer to cuddle up to a warm body… No, he couldn’t go there. He wasn’t ready for a mate.

“This water is just too cold. I want to see where it’s coming from.” Rog stood up, looking at the winding river. It appeared to gradually head uphill. “Do you want to explore with me?”

“Sure. Here, catch.” Hark tossed a mess of fish, hitting him in the face. They flopped around on the grass, covered in slime and now dirt and grass.

“Thanks.” Rog stopped thinking about it and gobbled them up. His stomach growled, wanting more. More he got.

Hark tossed more, more water and more fish. “I heard that grumbling. Eat up. You should’ve eaten another cow earlier.”

Rog ignored him, slurping up the offering. Sure, he should have, but his stomach was full then. He had no desire to fatten up like his brother Crag. That dragon could practically drag his belly when he walked. Of course, his mate, Faith, didn’t seem to mind.

Another mess of fish hit his head. “Okay, that’s enough.” Rog quickly ate them, rinsing his face and front limbs in the river. “Thank you. Ready?”

Hark nodded, climbing up the bank. Shaking his body while he walked. He glanced up. “Do you think the rain will stop anytime soon?”

Rog looked at the sky. While it wasn’t as dark as a few hours ago, it still looked drab. “No. It looks pretty miserable. Maybe we can find a cave or something. Get a fire going.”

“Sounds great.” Hark lumbered along, walking beside Rog. “Want to fly?”

Rog had been thinking the same thing. “Yeah. Why walk when we have wings?”

Grinning at each other, they burst into a run, wings flapping, gaining altitude at the same time.

“Beat you.” Rog trumpeted into the air.

“Nope. I beat you.” Hark rolled, grinning back at him.

“Tied.”

“Fine. Tied.”

They followed the river. It led up into the hills. Deceptively simple, Rog was sure walking would be more trouble than expected if they had gone that way. Rocky surfaces shown through the grass. More and more rock.

“I’m sure we’ll find caves. Look at all the rock.”

Rog flew, turning away from the river, climbing higher. He frowned. He felt almost driven.

Hey, I thought you wanted to follow the river. Hark looked at the river and back to Rog.

I do, I did. Something is pulling me this way. Hurry. It feels urgent. Rog didn’t wait. He flew in the direction his heart was tugging him.

You know what this means. Your mate is somewhere this way.

And she’s in trouble. Hurry. Rog pumped his wings, catching a current, speeding faster.

Hark followed.

I have to tell you, Saving Grace led me in an unexpected direction. I introduced two dragons you’ll see again. Indra and Zeru. I’ve already started Indra’s book. I’m using Indra’s Obsession as the working title, but Waking Tamara is an option for the actual title. Maybe. I have to see if that will work. To me, it doesn’t flow. I don’t have Hark’s mate yet. She hasn’t made an appearance. Soon, I hope! Otherwise Jeuvetorj will be getting her story first. Since, well, you’ve met her mate…or you will! So go buy Saving Grace!

The hands are there for friendship, the heart is there for love.

Hunted by the Dragon

Hunted by the Dragon
Black Sky Dragons Book 1
by Addison Carmichael
Genre: Paranormal Romance
A real fire-breathing Dragon?
When the questionable cellphone photo of a flying black reptile is splashed over the internet, online news reporter Crystal Logan ventures to the small town of Winchester to find out just how real this alleged sighting is. If her suspicions prove accurate, this will be the discovery of a lifetime, and the answer to a heartbreaking nightmare that has plagued Cryss for over a decade.
* * *
In the Black Sky Mountains of Colorado, Sheriff Derek Reaves has worked hard to maintain his quiet rural life. Now thanks to a paranoid tourist who swears he spotted a fairytale monster, hundreds of crazy supernatural and alien seekers are flooding Winchester for their own encounter of the bizarrest kind.
Unfortunately one beautiful news lady is a lot savvier, nosier and tenacious than all the others. If he’s not careful, Cryss Logan may very well uncover the dangerous secret Derek has hidden all these years, threatening not only his safe, peaceful life, but his very existence.
Unless he can find a way to stop her first.
AMAZON Best Selling author ADDISON CARMICHAEL is a Paranormal Romance junkie. Love is a mystical, magical thing to her, and she loves
writing and living vicariously through her endless PNR stories.
Whether it be alpha male werewolves, fierce dragons, panthers and
other shifters, sizzling hot vampires, or illusive sorcerers who will
magically make your dreams come true, her imagination is bubbling up
several stories after another.
I’m often asked why I write this genre,” Addison commented. “The truth is, I love creating unique and fantastical worlds where anything is possible. I’m in love with love and all its
possibilities for both adventure and total bliss. This is my avenue to live in these worlds and become the adventurous heroine who falls madly in love with her compliment super hot, supernatural hero. Worlds I love to visit again and again.”
As a literature major, Addison also enjoys weaving classic themes into her books, yet keeping the fun and folklore true to each story and character. While paying strict attention to the tropes of each myth,
she also finds unique ways to create new ones in order to make each story as fresh, realistic and plausible as possible.
Besides reading and writing (which are blissful addictions), Addison loves the mountains and ocean, and enjoys hiking, camping, horseback riding and star-gazing whenever she can manage it. But reading, writing and storytelling is and will always be the “true love” of her life.
Addison Carmichael was born and raised in Southern California and has lived and traveled all over the west coast (and the world). She married the man of her dreams and has two awesome sons, two
daughters-of-her-heart, and three grandchildren who are the jewels in her personal crown.
She now lives happily-ever-after with her family (which includes Mollie, her black lab-border collie) in Snohomish, Washington of the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
