Happy belated Mother's Day to all of the mothers of children and fur babies! I hope you enjoyed your day with friends, family, and/or pets!

I spent the day looking at the new templates that Blogger is offering, reading, and lounging around with Lexi. Lexi is... well, she's being Lexi; playful one minute, disinterested in anything beyond grooming herself or chewing her bone the next. The good news is her separation anxiety is gradually improving and she seems to know when I'm on my way home. The bad news is she has become more resistant to having her teeth brushed and having the hair around her eyes and beard groomed. Her groomer has been letting her beard grow a bit; however, I think I'm going to have her trim it close again so that grooming won't be such a trial for both of us.

Marvelous Monday 05/15/17, The Prophecy by Petra Landon, Currently Reading, On My Kindle Book Reviews,

A powerful wizard threatens the Chosen from beyond the grave. Can they unravel The Prophecy in time to save their world!

Chosen have walked the earth for time immemorial. Tasia is a very special Chosen. Warned to keep her distance from her brethren, she makes a fateful decision one night to assist an injured Shape-shifter. Suddenly, Tasia finds herself in the cross-hairs of Shifter mercenaries encroaching on San Francisco. Forced out of the shadows, Tasia has little choice but to ally herself with the local Shifter Pack led by a formidable and dangerous Alpha Protector. In the cut-throat world of a Shifter Pack, Tasia must fight to protect her secrets while struggling to negotiate with the enigmatic Alpha who holds his violent Pack together with a ruthless hand on its reins.

Grave danger threatens their world as a powerful wizard exploits an old prophecy to divide the Chosen. When the Pack is asked to investigate the twenty-five year old mystery, Tasia is drawn deeper into a past that risks raising the suspicions of the very Chosen she hides from. As danger closes in on her, Tasia must decide who to trust with the deadly secrets she guards.

Author's Note: "The Prophecy" is the first book of Saga of the Chosen, an urban fantasy series sprinkled with action, adventure, an unfolding mystery and a dose of romance. Set in contemporary San Francisco in the fantastical and intrigue-ridden world of Chosen where factions of Wizards, Shape-shifters, Vampires and others vie for power and influence over their kind, it introduces Tasia Armstrong, a Magick with dangerous secrets and powers. Circumstances propel Tasia from a nondescript life on the fringes of Chosen society to a crucial role in an investigation to decode a mysterious plot from the past that threatens her people. Along the way, she gains new friends and allies while struggling to maintain a tempestuous alliance with the local Shape-shifter Pack. Thrust into a world where the line between friend and foe is often hard to decipher, Tasia must figure out the rules quickly even as danger stalks ever closer to her.

The Rainmaker will be Book Two in this series

I must confess, I just finished reading The Secret of Berry Brae Circle by E.M. McIntyre this morning. I'm still finding it difficult to find the time and energy to read after I come home from work. I've been pushing to maintain a consistent posting schedule, and it's just not working out for me. I'll keep posting every Monday, but the review schedule is up in the air until I get used to working 10-hour days. 

If you're an author and I've promised to participate in a cover reveal or write up a review by the date your book is released, I'll make it happen. 

If you've subscribed to my weekly newsletter, you'll still receive one every week. If you haven't subscribed and still want to keep track of when I post, you can follow me on social media (see the sidebar or the header for social sites that I'm on) or subscribe to the newsletter.

How do you find the time to read with a demanding work schedule? Let me know your tips and tricks in the comments.

Have a marvelous Monday and a terrific week!
