Enter to win 5 fabulous e-books!

Each month, I plan to giveaway awesome books by wonderful authors. It’s my way of saying thank you to all my followers and fans. Some may wonder why I’m giving books away that aren’t mine. The answer is simple: I love to read and I love to help fellow authors promote their books.

The giveaway is easy to enter. Just click on the link to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway. At the end of the month, one winner will be selected randomly and will receive an ebook copy of all the books below. Good luck!

Here are the incredible books for May’s Giveaway.

Where to find C. Lee McKenzie:




After her car breaks down, Beth Kennedy is forced to stay in Florida, the target of Hurricane Sabrina. She stocks up supplies, boards up windows, and hunkers down to wait out the storm, but her plan unravels when she witnesses a car accident. Risking her life, she braves the winds to save the driver. Just when she believes they are safe, she finds out the man she saved could possibly be more dangerous than the severe weather.

Donovan Goldwyn only wanted to hide from the police, but the hurricane shoved his car into a tree. Now he’s trapped with a beautiful woman while the evidence that can prove his innocence to a brutal crime is out there for anyone to find.

As Hurricane Sabrina wreaks havoc, Beth has no other choice but to trust Donovan to stay alive. But will she survive, or will she become another hurricane crime?

The Six Train

Sometimes saving the person you love can cost you everything.

There is one person that ties Oliver Richter to this world: his wife Kai. For Kai, Oliver is the keeper of her secrets.

When her telepathy spirals out of control and inundates her mind with the thoughts and emotions of everyone within a half-mile radius, the life they built together in Manhattan is threatened.

To save her, Oliver brings her to the hometown he abandoned—Butternut, Wisconsin—where the secrets of his past remain buried. But the past has a way of refusing to stay dead. Can Kai save Oliver before his secrets claim their future?

An emotionally powerful debut, The Six Train to Wisconsin pushes the bounds of love as it explores devotion, forgiveness and acceptance.

BBF official cover

Doing homework for bully ogres and getting laughed at as the butt of pixie pranks, Gabe is tired of his goblin life.

When he and his friends step out of their nerdy stereotype and pull a prank of their own on the dragons at the first football game, it literally backfires, bringing a High Council vote to dismantle not only Gingko High, but the whole town, too!

The Book of Ages–hidden handbook of the High Council, filled with knowledge and power–may be Gabe’s only hope.

With the help of friends old and new, can Gabe complete his quest to find the Book in time to save Broken Branch Falls? Or will he remain an outcast forever?

52 LIKES by Medeia Sharif


After a brutal rape and near-murder, Valerie wants to get past feelings of victimhood from both the assault and her history of being bullied. Not knowing the identity of her masked rapist and dealing with the nasty rumors about that night are two things that plague her daily.

Valerie will have to follow ghostly entities, past victims of the rapist-murderer, contacting her through a social media site. Why do all of their eerie photos have 52 likes under them? Their messages are leading her to the mystery man, although he’ll put up a fight to remain hidden.

  1. I’m in! They all sound great. By the way, I think it’s wonderful that you are promoting other authors because there are so many wonderful stories out there, including yours :).

    • TBM says:

      I read and enjoyed all of them. And I love the mix. I know self-promotion is needed, but I do get tired of some folks who can only say, “Buy my book.” I’m more than happy to say, “I read this book and it’s great.”

  2. Beth Ann says:

    You are such a great source of “what to read” these days! Sorry I have been awol—-life, you know. I am still out here and thrilled dot see your great giveaway list. Hope all is well!

    • TBM says:

      Life…don’t I know it. I can’t believe it’s almost five p.m. here in London, and I’m only halfway done through my list for today. Mental note: make smaller lists. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. You’re starting off your giveaways with a great bunch of books. Your whole idea of giving away books and helping promote other authors is a terrific one, and very generous.
