Jingle Bell Book Hop: Free books and giveaways!

HO HO HO Merry Christmas!!!
I thought I would give you a poem for this beautiful holiday season.
It was six months ago, and a day,
when her husband passed away.
The doctors said there’s no more to do,
so she quit her job to help him through.
The child was sleeping when his father died,
to tell her son, oh how she tried.
The little boy cried that night,
full of fear, full of fright.
And on that night she lost her faith,
never to believe in the “Pearly Gate”.
She made a vow to never pray,
it meant nothing now, anyway.
At the funeral, he could only stare,
wishing that his Dad were there.
Tears were filling people’s eyes,
saddened by the young boy’s cries.
As the months went by, things got rough,
she went back to work, but it wasn’t enough.
With no food, no money, and bills to pay,
she just couldn’t bring herself to pray.
Before she knew it, it was Christmas Time,
and she wasn’t able to save a dime.
She felt so bad that she had no tree,
for all her son’s friends to see.
On Christmas Eve, they slept together,
she promised her son, she’d be there forever.
He asked her if Santa was coming tonight,
she whispered no, with tears in sight.
Her son would sulk, it wasn’t fair,
she hated to see him in despair.
She wanted to give her son some joy,
oh how she wished she had a toy.

The mother got to her knees to pray,
asking the Lord to hear her say.
She asked for help to return a smile,
to the face of her little child.
On Christmas Morning, the boy was screaming,
she saw his eyes were wide and gleaming.
At the door were games,  toys, even a bike,
and a card that said “for the tyke”.
With a great big smile and eyes so bright,
he kissed his mom as he held her tight.
She learned that a charity heard of her plight,
and frantically scrambled through the night.

The mother got to her knees to pray,
thanking the Lord for hearing her say.
She thanked the Lord for returning a smile,
to the face of her little child.

-- By Paul R. MacPherson Somerville, Ma

Adjusting to a new home, job, and friends was supposed to be simple but love interests have come knocking on her door. The question is can either of them be trusted? Each of them is harboring secrets but once exposed, will it send Bailey running or will it be her salvation?
Amongst the chaos of her love life, a unexpected appearance comes back into her life and could possibly change everything.
Bailey is ‘Learning the Lies’ but which will she accept?
Ready For You (Co-Written with Madison Daniel)
*18 and older* Author Penny Lane decides to team up with fellow author Kain Brooks because she believes the collaboration will bring something refreshing and new to her humdrum life. It is at first, but what she doesn't count on is developing feelings for a man that's hundreds of miles away while continuing to struggle with the death of her fiancé, Zack.

The newly divorced Kain is excited about the partnership and happily realizes that it may lead to much more than just a book.
However, there is a threat! A stalker's evil intentions are far more serious than either of them can ever imagine-- so serious that they may not make it long enough to discover if their feelings are genuine or just a long-distanced crush.
A Breath of Death (Life & Death Sage, Book 1)

What if one day you awake to realize you can only remember two of the twenty two years of your life? Kate Miller is damaged, and her only possessions are a bird, a shady past she can only remember through nightmares, and a very uncertain future. These constant nightmares introduce her to a life she never knew existed. Running away from a certain evil, she discovers she has a gift that can change the course of life...

In one night everything will change. After being taken by a stranger who claims he's there to protect her, odd things start happening. Will Kate have time to learn the truth about her past? Will she learn how to use her powers in time before she dies?
After all, death is just a breath away!
