My review of Fat Chances by J.S. Wilsoncroft

Annie is a normal, overweight 18-year-old senior in high school, until she meets Cory, the sexy, super hot Zumba instructor that turns her life upside down. Plagued with extreme insecurity due to her excessive weight, Annie learns to love and to love herself. Through Cory, she learns that she is lovable.“Fat Chances” will warm your heart and reminds us all that it’s what’s in the heart, not on the body, that counts.

My Review
5 Owls
I really enjoyed Fat Chances! Normally, our main female characters are slim, fit, and unbeknownst to them, runway model gorgeous. Annie is not... at least not on the outside. A forced trip to a Zumba class is going to rock her world! To me, this book had a realistic quality that we should be instilling in our young ladies. You don't have to paint your face, starve, or be a Hollywood starlet to get the guy. Just be true to yourself, the way Annie was. She learned how to love herself, while being healthy, NOT anorexic. I loved the characters, and this world! Bravo J.S.!! I loved it!

The Blood Moon is here!

The wait is over! The Blood Moon has arrived... on a Blood Moon!

I'm still in shock that so many readers have become attached to the characters in my head. From Leeny, The Moon Coven, and myself, Thank you.
About the Book
The Vampires have declared war on the Moon Coven ...

You would think that would be Leeny Moon’s biggest trouble this time around, but two jealous guys make the horde of hungry vampires gunning for the powerful witch seem like a day at the park.

Leeny has embraced her birthright. She is next in line to lead the coveted Moon coven. Out of fear of history repeating itself, Leeny made her first kill, and for the last three years her sole mission has been to drive the vampires out of Ireland. With the help of neighboring covens she is not alone in her pursuit.

However, the close friendship developing between Finn O’Donnell and Leeny is causing a problem in her budding relationship with Seamus McNamara.

The future is up in the air as the creatures from her nightmares invade the tiny fishing town of Galway Bay, Ireland ... again. The revenge they seek is simple─Leeny’s blood. Who will survive the war on this Blood Moon?

Blood Moon is available on

Blood Moon will be available in print soon!

As always, until next time...

Blood Moon Teaser!

Since Blood Moon is releasing tomorrow, who wants a little teaser to wet your whistle? LOL! Well, here you go
October 1, 1950
I woke again this morning covered in a cold sweat after a mere hour of sleep. My dreams are constantly haunted with the reality of what is waiting for us on the horizon─ war. 

After what me, and others in my coven had done over the past few years to decimate their numbers we knew the vampires would seek revenge sooner or later. Of course, we were hoping for the latter. 
They have begun infesting the surrounding areas killing humans, and the stray witch when the opportunity presents itself. 

My friend, Finn brought word this morning that London had seen at least three dozen additional victims in less than a fortnight. The humans are oblivious as to the cause of the violence. Their newspapers speak of the possibility of a serial killer, or wild animal on the loose. As if a wild animal or a human with absolutely no magickal ability could inflict this magnitude of damage. All of the covens know the identity of the culprits, however in order to keep our existence a secret and not cause an even larger bout of hysteria, we cannot tell the humans who it is that hunts them. Instead, we go out and hunt the hunters. Those poor humans... oblivious.

Colleen and I each killed three of the abominations before returning home last night. I enjoyed the time hunting with my sister. She has matured so quickly as a witch since her initiation last year. Her tracking skills are top notch─ she reminds me of Ma. I watched as she baited the Barna Woods, just east of Rusheen Bay with her blood. She and I took positions in neighboring trees and waited. The foul beasts appeared almost immediately and we made easy work of them.

Since Da’s death last year, we haven’t had much time to enjoy the activities that sisters should. We’ve had to take turns staying with Ma and caring for Isadora. But, last night Uncle Wes agreed to stay with them and keep them safe as Colly and I went hunting. We needed that time desperately, even if it was spent doing our job and not normal things sisters’ do. Besides, normality is highly overrated.

Da was one of the last confirmed cases of the bubonic plague in Ireland. His death hit all of us hard, but none more so than our mother. She’s turned off all of her emotions, which has in effect rendered her defenseless against an attack. My heart longs to have my mother back─ the powerful witch that everyone feared and revered.

I can’t deny there are times when I am absolutely frustrated with her. It seems as if she’s either forgotten, or doesn’t care that Colleen, Isadora and I also lost our father. Immediately after he died, we needed her. We needed our mother to comfort us. However, that time has long since passed, now we need her in her right mind, especially if my dreams are correct and we are facing an impending war.

Colleen is gentle when dealing with our mother, so she took her to visit Aunt Fionna in an attempt to either get her to open up, or sadly, cast a spell to silence the pain. We are going to need her power if we are to even stand a chance.

Just before Da’s death, Seamus formally asked him if he could have permission to begin courting me. I don’t know how I would have made it through all of this without him. He holds me close to his chest as I cry, helps me with all of the chores that Da did around the cottage, and he’s extremely good with Isadora. She’s so young, and doesn’t understand what’s happening. And, with Colly and I constantly off fighting vampires, Seamus has stepped up and provided all of us with some semblance of stability and normality in our lives. But, I fear for them when I’m away. Isadora has little power and Seamus is human.

No matter how many I kill, it will never be enough. Not until the day I can finally say that every last one of the monstrosities my family created more than four centuries ago are no longer a threat to any man, woman, child, or witch. 

Blessed Be ~ Leeny

Until tomorrow ... on the Blood Moon
