To the Breaking Point…
When Brendell Meshango resigns from her university professor position and retreats to her isolated cabin to repair her psyche, she is confronted by a masked intruder. His racial comments lead her to believe she is the solitary victim of a hate crime.
          However, is all as it appears? After two bizarre days, the intruder mysteriously disappears but continues to play mind games with her. Taught by her mother to distrust the mainstream-based power structures, and with her stalker possibly linked to a high level of government, Brendell conceals the incident from the police. But will her silence keep her safe?          Then her beloved daughter, Zoë, is threatened and Brendell takes matters into her own hands. To save Zoë, Brendell searches for the stalker and confronts not just a depraved madman but her own fears and prejudices.

Moxie's Decision by Hank Quense!



I'm pleased to be part of author Hank Quense's MOXIE’S DECISION Blog Tour with MC Book Tours today. A blogging friend (and a delight to know), Hank has been a guest on this blog many times, adding satire and hilarity to my day. Hank has proven time again that laughter is the medicine for everything. 


Entertaining from beginning to end, MOXIE'S DECISION is uproariously funny and satire at its best. Selected as one of 2016's best YA novels: Huffington Post. It’s also a top pick! Indie Reader: 5 stars

You can enter to win a copy of MOXIE’S DECISION today. Be sure to check out the giveaway details below.

◊ Series: Princess Moxie (Book 2)
◊ Paperback: 306 pages
◊ Publisher: Strange Worlds Publishing (October 15, 2015)
◊ Genre: Fantasy, Action, Adventure,
◊ Language: English
◊ ISBN-10: 0985779195
◊ ISBN-13: 978-0985779191


Moxie has a plan; she’s determined to rule as queen after her father, King Smedley, dies.
 
But Smedley refuses to acknowledge her as his heir. Her uncle also wants the throne and he’s already tried once to eliminate Moxie as competition.

Moxie recognizes she hasn't been trained to rule and she needs lessons about the real world. Moxie goes on a quest to learn how to rule and to learn about life outside the castle.
Moxie faces unexpected obstacles as she struggles with adventures in a brutal reality that tests her mettle and determination.
This is a fantasy coming-of-age story that is decidedly different than the usual ones. The book is filled with satire and humor. What more can a reader wish for?

It takes place against the backdrop of Camelot, but this isn’t the Camelot of legends. It’s Camelot in a parallel universe where the Knights of the Round Table play football and Guinevere coaches the team’s cheer leaders. The wizard Merlin struggles to understand the Magic of the Mind using primitive ink stained diagrams and Stonehenge is a theater-in-the-round.
 
Moxie’s rollicking adventures are the stuff of comedy. Enjoy!
