It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted any of the latest releases that have come across my desk that I’m excited about. So, I thought I would just blanket blog all my fav releases from the past couple months. Bare with me, it’s going to be long because my peeps have been busy!
First off, if you didn’t hear any of my news that will be first.
|Pieces of Me, Eisley Jacobs
Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Pieces-Me-Eisley-Jacobs/dp/1479272914/
Forget everything you know. Forget your name. Forget any memory of your parents. Forget your own face in the mirror. Then, and only then, can you understand my world.
My name is Braidan, and I’m seventeen years old. I wake every day with no memory of what happened yesterday. No recollection of who I am. Only a series of sticky notes hint at the life I supposedly lead. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t dismiss the thought that this isn’t my life or my true identity. Notes plastered all over my room and school books tell me to search for answers. But how can I learn the truth when I’ll forget everything the moment my mind drifts to sleep?
Ian, the new boy at school, claims he has the key to my walking coma. If what he says is true, I’m far more than just a girl with amnesia… and I’ve got precious little time to unlock my past.
Pieces of Me depend on it.
|Also, the third book in the Dragons Forever series is out — DRAGONS OF THE DEEP!
Dragons of the Deep (Book three), Eisley Jacobs

Paired with his best friend Carik, Deglan flies into action to help save Meia and the dragons, but who will save him?
|And we can’t forget The Unseen Chronicles – An Unseen Realm Anthology!
The Unseen Chronicles – Inspirational Fiction
For our battle is not again flesh and blood…
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. – Hebrews 13:2
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. – Psalm 91:11-12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. – Ephesians 6:12
The stories in this novella are based on actual events. The names, however, have been changed. While writing these stories, I personally interviewed or watched interviews and/or read the accounts from the individuals that experienced each story. I interpreted what may have happened if we could see, with human eyes, the battles waged against the darkness in the unseen realm. The results came to be The Unseen Chronicles.
This anthology is not intended to idolize angels nor place them higher than our Almighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God. The Bible says he gave the angels charge over you (Psalm 91:11-12 NAS), so if you’ve experienced the unseen hand of one of his warriors, then it was by the Lord’s command, and apart from Him they can do nothing.
The idea behind this anthology was to show that while we struggle with our circumstances, we are not alone in our fight. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12 NIV)
