NEWS: J.D. Salinger’s house is up for sale, and for a king’s ransom, it could be yours!

I spotted this in the L.A. Times today and thought I would share. As someone who lives in New Hampshire, I can tell you the almost $700,000 for a house that size is absolutely insane. That’s smaller than my house and mine only values at about $130k. Plus, given the length of the driveway, I’m guessing you’re either going to spend a fortune in snow plowing or get trapped in your overpriced house for the 6-7 month long winter. I think you would have to be a pretty hard core, like, professional level fangirl/fanboy for Mr. Salinger to blow that kind of cash on that teeny tiny little house.  Not worth it in my opinion, but I never was a fan of his work.  – Jena

$0.99 EBOOK DEAL SPOTLIGHT: The Monster Within (Mounting Darkness #1) by Lola Rayne – Erotic Paranormal Romance (@raynelola)

The Monster Within by Lola RayneSometimes the monster that haunted you as a child truly is real…

All it took was one phone call to bring Nicole Jones’s life crumbling down around her. Now a nightmare she thought she’d left in her past is back, and he’s not exactly bringing her candy and flowers. While fleeing, in a non-terrified fashion, she meets a menacing man in a dark alley. Then promptly passes out at his feet.

Gideon Evans hasn’t exactly been having the best run of luck, but all that changes when a buxom little blonde collapses right in front of him. Or at least he thinks it has. It doesn’t take him long to realize that bombshell is an appropriate description for more than just her looks. Now he’s facing several problems, including a surprising enemy, his own dark past, and a rather inconvenient case of lust.

Can they work together to battle the nightmare that’s chasing them? Or will they succumb to the monster within?

EBOOK DEAL SPOTLIGHT: Bad Blood (Bad Blood #1) by Ginny Lurcock (@GinnyLurcock)

Bad Blood Cover ImageHigh school senior Victoria “Tori” Reeve has it pretty good. She’s rich, she’s smart, and she’s popular. What more could a girl ask for? Sure, she’s a little lonely, what with being single and her best friend going off to college and all, but she’s got her work at the Spaulding Crisis Center to keep her busy. When she gets a new boss in the very easy on the eyes form of Isaac Larsen, suddenly her volunteer work feels a lot less like work. Even if he does seem to cause Tori to break out into spontaneous fits of foot in mouth disease. Somehow in spite of her blunderitis, Isaac still seems to be interested in her in a more-than-employer or even more-than-friends kind of way.

So really she should have known that things would go sideways.

Trouble comes to Spaulding, and that trouble seems to be centered on Tori and the Crisis Center. Is she really the focus? Or does this all have to do with the new mysterious man in her life? In her efforts to find out, Tori stumbles across some secrets. Skeletons that might have been better off left in the closet. As it turns out, Spaulding is a hot spot for bad blood…

NEW RELEASE REVIEW by Gwen: Unabridged by Melinda DeRoss (@GwennyStover)

UnabridgedIronically, it all starts with a popular book about BDSM. When Angelina Jameson steps into her boss’s office armed with an acid article about ‘Billionaires, BDSM and Blah-blah-blah’, she thinks her career will take off. But her career aspirations drop into second place when she finds herself face to face with her nemesis.

Blade Spencer is the new editor-in-chief of Unabridged—the literary magazine where his ex-lover Angelina works. For three years, since she fled small town Jamestown without a word of explanation, they haven’t heard from one another. Now, when they meet again, the past and all the feelings they once had between them come rushing back, making them realize their love has never died. But can they reconcile their new circumstances and the changes that have occurred during the three years they were apart? Neither is the person the other used to know.

Then there is the faceless shadow who hunts them from the dark, driven by obsession and greed…

*This book contains strong language and explicit descriptions of sex.

REVIEW by Jena: Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good by Corey Taylor (@CoreyTaylorRock)

Seven Deadly SinsFor the first time, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor speaks directly to his fans and shares his worldview about life as a sinner. And Taylor knows how to sin. As a small-town hero in the early ’90s, he threw himself into a hard-drinking, fierce-loving, live-for-the-moment life; when his music exploded, he found himself rich, wanted, and on the road. But soon his extreme lifestyle led him to question what it means to sin and whether it could—or should—be cast in a different light. After all, if sin makes us human how wrong can it be?

Now updated with a new Afterword by the author, Seven Deadly Sins is a brutally honest look “at a life that could have gone horribly wrong at any turn,” and the soul-searching and self-discovery it took to set it right.
