The Whispers Series Tour and Giveaway!


You're Not Alone
Whispers Series Book 1
by Nance Newman
Genre: Paranormal Mystery

When you’re dead, you’re dead. That’s it. Nothing more. At least that’s what Quinn O’Reilly thinks until she starts hearing whispers after losing the love of her life to cancer. Quinn either has to start believing in an afterlife or admit that her own sanity is in jeopardy. As a battle begins for her beloved’s estate, threatening her with financial ruin, the voices intensify. 

To make them stop, Quinn and her best friend Chaz follow an unlikely mix of characters into the world of spirits, ghosts and specters. What they must do to unravel the mystery of the whispers tests Quinn’s belief system in every way. Can the dead really reach out from the other side? Can Quinn open her mind enough to help her and her dead lover? Is it okay to commit a crime for a greater purpose? And what is appropriate attire for a séance or digging up a grave?





Bad Man, Bad Ghost
Whispers Series Book 2

Finding clues in the shoes of a dead man in a coffin wasn’t what Quinn thought she would do when she became a mortician. She also didn’t expect the bodies that entered her funeral home to have lived their lives as bad men or to whisper their requests to her—not only demands that she has to fulfill to get them to stop, but ones that might lead her to commit acts on the wrong side of the law.
The spirit of a mob boss has entered Quinn O’Reilly’s funeral parlor and his whispers drag her into a world of criminals, secrets and lies. Once again, she enlists the help of her friends—Andjela, a communicator with the dead, Mr. Princeton, a professor of Egyptian studies at the local university, Chester, the owner of the town cemetery and Chaz, her best friend and assistant—to find the clues that will lead her to what the dead man wants. She realizes that she can’t answer the whispers alone which force her to put her friends in danger. 
Soon she finds it’s not only the dead Mafia boss that wants something from her, but so does his wife, his mistress and strange, dark men in dark suits.
To make matters worse, Quin is realizing that the whispers of spirits aren’t going to go away. Neither is the specter that still haunts her apartment. 




Dirty Wrong
Whispers Series Book 3

Eleanor’s spirit is doing a lot of griping in Quinn’s funeral home. She was the wife of a member of the Mafia who was murdered several years prior and now she wants something from Quinn. Her best friend nicknamed her “Mafia magnet” since this is the second spirit to contact her who is connected to the mob. She knows she is destined to a life of answering their ghostly requests but she wonders if all the spirits that contact her will always be on the wrong side of the law.
Once again, Quinn must put her friends in danger to help her decipher the clues Eleanor’s spirit has communicated to them. It leads them to the now defunct, dark, and foreboding subway tunnels beneath the city where they discover they’re not the only one’s searching for whatever Eleanor has hidden. There’s a war going on in the tunnels and they can’t tell who’s winning—the ghosts or the Mafia. What will happen if the war in the tunnel keeps them from finding the answers to Eleanor’s clues? Will the price they have to pay for being in the middle of it be too much for Quinn to handle?   





Sound Travels
Whispers Series Book 4

Once again, Quinn hears the whispers of the dead, but when it follows her on a trip to New York City with Andjela and Chaz to help her parents find a missing girl, Quin realizes the whisper is that of the missing girl, Sofia. 
The niece of Eleanor, the last spirit to elicit Quinn’s help, Sofia had somehow gotten mixed up in her family’s Mafia mess. Now she is dead. 
Quinn summons Mr. Princeton and Chester to New York City to help them communicate with Sofia. Together, they must follow the clues to find Sofia’s body and the cause of her death. 
Who is really responsible for the murder of a young girl? What was Sofia hiding that got her killed? Will Quinn and her friends find her and what it was she was hiding? 
And why are there two different black SUV’s that show up where ever they are? 
Follow Quinn, Andjela, Mr. Princeton, Chester and Chaz into two very menacing worlds-that of the Mafia and of the dead, and discover the newest hiding spot—a very large hole in Brooklyn.






I live in upstate New York with my two dogs; a 17 year old Min Pin (Zeus) and a female dog I recently rescued from the Puerto Rico hurricanes (I have been learning Spanish and she is learning English!). Her name is Ela and she is a joy.
I have been writing in some form or other since high school when I bought my first guitar (a 12 string for $50 from one of those magazines my mother used to receive in the mail) and began writing songs. In college, I started my first novel that I hope to go back to and finish someday.
I currently work for a school district in transportation as a router and dispatcher where I use software to solve the puzzle of getting 5600 students to many different schools, but my goal is to become a full time writer of novels and music. I try to fit writing in with my full time job and hobbies that include biking, gardening, hiking, kayaking and watching movies (lots of them and all kinds)
I continue to write songs and perform with Dooley(my music partner) We have a CD of original songs and it is available for your enjoyment. Visit me at nancenewman.com to check it out.
I am really excited to share my work with you, and some days you might see me driving a big yellow school bus.

Melissa's Menagerie by Lori Hoopengardner

After the death of her parents, Melissa was on her own to carry on her family's secret. She was lonely, scared and busy. That is until she found some people she could trust. Friendships and more just seemed to happen.


The Rainbow Truck by Jeremy Simons

On the backroads of Louisiana, the unthinkable happened to Melissa. A truck tried to run her off the road. She could have let it go, but she was too proud for that. Besides, its color intrigued her. Oh yeah, and the blood on the tailgate.

She and Scott followed it to a secluded camp where their fortunes were forever sealed. She had to fight. She had to stand on her own two feet. She had to...survive.
But could it be that easy? Find out in The Rainbow Truck.


Unbound Wonder by Niki Livingston

Melissa’s past doesn’t define her and she refuses to allow her teenage trauma to hold her down. Believing in herself when no one else did, she became an instant fame in the music industry. And with the public eye on her, it wasn’t a surprise when she attracted a male admirer who didn’t have her best interest at heart. Another man who only craved to control and own her.

Now she must face her fears, both known and unknown, in order to gain the strength to battle the seemingly never-ending storm threatening her very existence. Rising to face her foes is only the beginning to taking back her power.

Lovelight by B. Tolentino

Blind but never felt unwanted, Melissa Chaplin lives peacefully in New Hampshire with her mother. Wanting to make progress in her life, she decides to take a step forward by applying for a part-time job only to be rejected as soon as she receives the phone call she was so excited about. Suddenly, the bruising pain of frustration of being visually impaired envelopes her, causing her to take a huge leap of faith by agreeing to be a patient to a doctor from Germany she meets for the first time.



Running from Ghosts by Cam Johns
Not telling the whole truth is the same as lying. It turns out, withholding secrets is more dangerous than being honest with the one you love. At least that’s what Melissa has come to realize. Now being forced to face her deceptions head on as the ghosts of her past come back to haunt her - threatening the life she has finally built - Melissa has to find a way to confront her dishonesty without losing the love of her life.

Onus by Sonya Jesus

Oliver: In onus memoria. I had it engraved on his tombstone so that when I went to visit, I could remember Ben died because I failed to protect him. In my onus, I let guilt corrode through any attempt at happiness. I let the blame overwhelm me because I deserved to be punished... He died because I wasn't watching.




Melissa by Davina Purnell
Oliver's been coming to group sessions for a year and half now. I wish I could say he's slowly getting better, but he's shown no progress and it worries me. I don't know how to break through to him or if he even wants me to, but I care about him too much not to try.

Till Death by Bella Emy

Happily Ever After.

That's what Mel thought she had found the day she met Brad.
Now, married for years with their two children, Austin and Brayden, Mel fears for their life. The man she once knew who had been so loving, supporting and caring has turned into a drunk, alcoholic, abusive husband and father, stopping at nothing to get his point across.
Will Mel be able to overcome her dread of living huddled up in a corner, fearing for her life and that of her sons, or will Brad place his hands on her one last and final time?



Witch’s Heart by Melanie Rodriguez

Melissa is a sophomore at the prestigious Circe Academy, a school that grooms only the finest of witches and warlocks. She finds herself an outcast to most of her peers and professors due to her half-human side. Wanting nothing more than to be a fully-fledged witch, she enlists the help of the wily and sarcastic spirit fox, Vic, who too has his own agenda. In order to retrieve the lost half of magic that she needs to accomplish her goal, Melissa must locate the human the old ritual demands she needs and must steal their “heart.” When she realizes who that human is, Melissa finds herself in a bind: does she complete her goal and fulfill her pact with Vic or does she let the special human go and continue to live her outcast life without the respect she deserves?


Choices Made by Justina Luther

At the age of 26 I, Melissa Leighton, thought I had my priorities right. I worked hard, kept my eye on my goals, and loved my mom and twin sister with all my heart. I broke my back to make us all proud and be the first in my family to become a doctor. The funny thing about life is, every choice we make changes something and the choices I made threatened to change everything.


My Shadow by Sheri Chapman
Melissa is drawn to wrong side of the law. For now, she contents her intrigue by pitting herself against the police. Through her own vices, she must figure out crimes before they can. Not only does it inspire her writing career, but it also gives her life an exciting edge. However, Melissa is being watched. The innovative woman must determine if her life in endanger before it’s too late...

From the Ashes by Sarah Stein
How far would you go to survive?

Melissa was the perfect child. She never complained, did amazing in school and made her parents happy. Or so she thought. Everything changed when she was told to pack her bags, and leave with a man she’s never met. But all is not what it seems as she has to fight not to lose herself in his custody.

Back to Blogging with a Family Update

I will admit, last year was a rough one at the Kerr house. We had a lot of challenges and blogging kinda fell away. I'm excited to be back more this year and bring you even more great content! To get us started, here's a little update on the family.



Aubrey - I have been busy being a mom. With eight kids that fills up most of my time. I also teach English as a Second Language to Chinese students through Qkids. It has been a great experience and I enjoy spending time with these children every morning. It's always fun to watch their faces when they find out I have 8 children and many animals. With the spare I love being here at the blog, running Kerrific Children's & Maternity Boutique and reading. This year I am participating in the Extreme Book Nerd challenge through our local library again and hope to achieve reading a book from all 75 categories before December. I also recently enrolled as a student at BYU-Idaho to finish my bachelors degree. This should bring a lot more excitement to my days as I try to keep up with the much younger students.

B is now 10 (fifth grade) and is my biggest helper. He loves school and excels in every subject. B also participates in Scouting and likes to run with his school's cross country team. He has also set a goal to become a Book Nerd this year with the kids challenge and has set a goal to read from 25 of the categories. He will also participate in 4-H again this summer which he enjoys.

C is 9 (third grade) and the child I can never keep up with. He is also a very good student and recently became a Multiplication Ninja by memorizing all his multiplication facts through 12x12. Wow! C also participates in 4-H and scouts and enjoys many ball sports.

D is 7 (second grade) and it has been amazing to see him grow both in height and knowledge this year. D is quickly falling in love with reading and loves spending time reading to his younger siblings. He is excited to begin scouts this year and again participate as a 4-H Cloverbud.

Erik is still working at BYU-Idaho. He loves his job as campus arborist and has made many good friends while there. The hardest part of the job is the odd hours during snow removal but that's nothing new so we manage. At home this year Erik helped with several home repair projects including moving the family out for 2 weeks while our roof was repaired from hail damage. In the meantime he has also remodeled our bathroom, replaced floors throughout the main living area, and built many new animal pens for Kerrific Gardens.

F is 6 (first grade) and loves everything princess! She was thrilled to attend our local Princess Ball this last year and takes every opportunity to dance. F has also been participating as a 4-H Cloverbud and it's been exciting to watch her gain confidence as she learns to read and do other "big kid" things.

G is 4 (preschool) and is the family snuggle bug. She loves being the big sister to the little three and is very good at helping mom while the big kids are at school.

H is 3 and loves the chance he gets to be mom's big helper while G is at school. Although he doesn't yet talk, H is very good at communicating what he wants and has the best facial expressions and acting abilities I have ever seen in a 3 year old. He is great entertainment any day of the week!

I is 19 months and thankfully learned to walk just weeks before little sister arrived. He loves to be a big help and is so proud he has learned to give sister her binky. He loves to take it away so he can show you how good he is at giving it back. He's a little stink but we love him dearly!

J is 3 months old now. She's a sweetheart and snugglebug! She's slowly learning to sleep longer at night and we love that she will smile at us. What a joy!

All in all, we are loving life in our little homestead in the city!

Las Vegas Crime
Baxter and Holt Book 3

Simply love Leslie Wolfe! The Baxter-Holt series is one of the best in the genre! This was a great story that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Cannot wait until the next one, Las Vegas Crime, coming in November. Keep writing them, Leslie!”



Detectives Laura Baxter and Jack Holt are members of the elite: Las Vegas Metro PD, one of the toughest and most respected law enforcement agencies in the United States. In the middle of a city with two million residents and 43 million annual visitors, they’re searching for a missing girl and the ruthless killers who snatched her.

The girl: gone

When a teenage girl is daringly kidnapped from her school, minutes after being dropped off, a frenzied search begins, involving the entire police force of a city that never sleeps. But for Detectives Baxter and Holt this isn’t a crime like any other; it is personal. 

The crimes: terrifying

A bold and merciless serial killer preys on young girls and leaves them out to die in the cold and dreadful expanse of the Mojave Desert, unable to move, to scream, to fight for their lives.

The choice: impossible

Now Detective Holt is faced with an agonizing decision: he can sacrifice all that he holds dear or jeopardize the life of an innocent girl, his own flesh and blood. The man holding all the cards in this game of life and death isn’t willing to negotiate; he’s only willing to kill. 

In Las Vegas, few things end well.

Two mavericks form an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other with their lives, just not with their secret plans.
