C.L. Cannon is pleased to present the official cover for her new series starter Bloodlines: A Forget Me Not Origin Story.
Bloodlines follows fraternal twins Anso and Ava at the very start of magic itself.
When Anso discovers there’s something different about him, something inhuman, he knows he must keep it a secret. His father, his entire village would disown him, or worse. There’s one person, however, who he cannot hide from, his twin sister, Ava. Ava sees right through Anso’s distress and promises to keep his secret while yearning for a power of her very own.
As Anso explores his newfound abilities, he also finds a friend with a similar problem. Could there be more like him? This is the story of how an ordinary boy became a legend, a leader, the sister who stood by him through it all, and the best friend who taught him to embrace his differences.
Fans of X-Men, Harry Potter, and The Mortal Instruments will enjoy this series starter.
Buying info: You can pre-order Bloodlines for just .99!

The Circle in the Square is the first collection of prose and poetry from author K C Pearson. The book takes readers on an honest journey through the intrinsic pain of love, loss, grief, anxiety, strength, healing and living.
I decided that after reading this book, I should always carry a book with me. I read this in a single sitting last week, but for some reason, I decided to carry it with me around for a while. Poet KC Pearson's words needed to be visited again. It wasn't random, or convenient, or whatever reason my anal brain needed to give, it just is. Much like this book of poetry. They read like musings never meant to be said out loud; or a random observation, a passing, casual "huh," spoken out loud to the Universe. It didn't have to make sense, though it did...it just....is.
From beginning to end, I got a little lost in her world. Pearson spoke of what ifs, and star crossed lovers, and societal norms that made me laugh, and think. She writes about what fitting in, and claiming a mark on this world...and how it's perfectly wonderful to just be a 'circle in the square.'
I have quite a bit of favorites but this one hit me.
Made me question my purpose,
Since the day of my birth;
i want to be someone, who did
Someting of worth.
It ticks by unnoticed;
Commits us to ash,
And leaves all that we are;
Between two dates and a dash.
***I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I am not required to write a positive one. These thoughts and opinions are my own.***
My Rating: 5/5

Something is brewing. Like the far off rumble of a train in the distance, a rebellion is stirring. A cry for change arises in the midst of a traditional monarchy, where King Addison has inherited the throne. Who are the underground troublemakers? What is stirring their defiant banner and demand for change?
Find out in The Rebellion! (The Tales of Tarsurella #2)
Vanessa Bennett lands her dream job working at the Palace in Tarsurella. She struggles to balance everything on her plate: life in a new country, stressful deadlines, crabby co-workers, college classes at the local University, and blossoming feelings of romantic adoration toward her boss–King Addison. Keeping up with her To-Do list, while trying to earn respect in Addison’s male-dominated administration, presents its challenges. Nevertheless, she can’t help but fight a reoccurring thought and the excitement rising with it: is Addison interested in her?
Addison is adjusting to his new role as King. Rumors of a rebellious uprising among the youth in Tarsurella intensifies, as acts of violence and protest break out across the city. Addison is determined to uncover the hidden instigator who fearlessly blogs democracy-driven ideals with a secretive pen name. Will Addison discover and expose the fiery rebellion leader? Or will his efforts fail to stop the rebellious thoughts spreading like wildfire, causing a heartbreaking rift in his divided nation?
