Hi, my name is Janice Seagraves. I’m an indy published author, and I have a publisher for my Chronicles of Arcon series. I also love to read.

I also love to read.

I’m doing this blog hop to showcase and support my fellow indy authors.

Today’s Book worth your bucks is, My Name is A’yen. A science fiction romance.

And it’s now free.

I love this book from the start. I saw it promoted and just read a snippet but missed my chance to buy it. And then I saw another promo, I snapped it up and I’m glad I did.

There is something about the novel, a feeling I wish I could convey through the stories I write. It grabbed me and moved me.

My Name Is A’yen is the start of a series.

A’yen is a slave, a Loks Mé. And like all Loks Mé, A’yen is tall, over six feet, broad-shouldered, extremely handsome with multifaceted blue eyes.

As the story opens, we find out A’yen’s master was murdered right in front of him. Heartbroken he is placed in holding awaiting his turn to be sold as part of his beloved master’s property. While in holding he’s been severely abused.

Enter Farran. She believes the Loks Mé once lived on the Rim and is determined to prove it. And win A’yen’s trust. She buys him and takes him with her.

But she’s a breeder’s daughter and can’t be trusted.

Programmed by his DNA to protect her, A’yen does what he can to defend his mistress on the planet on the Rim, even if it cost him his life.

As each discovery found in the ruins is weighed and measured, A’yen gets more and more tortured. His distracted mistress misses the signs until it is nearly too late to save him.

The entire book is an emotional rollercoaster as it finds ties with the past to the present.

What surprised me was that A’yen has a family. I’m not even sure why that surprised me, but it did.

My Name is A’yen is a wonderful book, not to be missed.

I give it Five stars *****

Buying eBooks For Gifts

It’s no secret that I love books. After all, I write romances and it was the love of reading that led me to writing my own. You should see the bookcases in my office stuffed with everything from paperback to hardback. But maybe it would surprise you that I still buy books for my daughter? She’s a grown woman now and has her own tastes in reading material. She loves paranormals, probably after years of reading the Harry Potter Series and the host of copy-cat books that followed it.

But maybe it would surprise you that I still buy books for my daughter? She’s a grown woman now and has her own tastes in reading material. She loves paranormals, probably after years of reading the Harry Potter Series and the host of copy-cat books that followed it.

So after I bought a paranormal novel by a new author I wasn’t familiar with and really enjoyed it, I thought my daughter would too. I bought it for her as an eBook so she can read it on her app.

Gone are the days of heading to the bookstore and buying the book as a gift. Or even passing around a book you enjoyed. (I miss bookstores) But then again, I think I like this better. The author makes another sale. I buy the book as a gift online, and Amazon, Barns and Noble or whoever does the rest.

Easy peasy.

What do you think of ordering eBooks as a gift?
