Parents to four wonderful children, Jerry and Stephanie Jaeger enjoy working together as J.S. Jaeger to write uplifting, entertaining stories. 

Jerry overcame bullying to earn his black belt in Kempo Karate. He served as a special agent for the FBI and currently works as a prosecutor. 

Stephanie ran her own accounting practice for several years before turning her focus to writing Scrolls of Zndaria with Jerry. 

Together, they are excited to bring readers of all ages into the magical world of Zndaria.








After tragedy strikes her kingdom, the king of Taycod welcomes Cenaya as one of his own. When she uncovers the secrets of her new family, her perceived perfect life begins to crumble. Now she must choose: ignore this new-found knowledge and continue living her spoiled existence or find the strength to become the leader her people need.
She must first decide who to trust. Can she rely on her mysterious father or the dazzling royal family? What of the alluring man who speaks of spreading peace across the land? And then there’s Nathanial McGray, a young man who appears out of nowhere. Her decision will determine freedom or bondage, for her and for the world of Zndaria.




First, let's take a look inside the book 
with this Excerpt

Young Cenaya’s eyes flew open. A bulky swamp creature stood over her bed. Thick leather armor covered its frog-like body. Her scream stuck in her throat. Moonlight beaming through Cenaya’s open window shined off the grob’s bulging, bloodshot eyes.
Run! Cenaya’s mind screeched. Her five-year-old body didn’t move.

The grob’s forked tongue flicked through crooked, decaying teeth. Drool dripped past its thin, green lips onto Cenaya’s nose and rolled down her cheek. The putrid smell made her stomach churn. Grabbing her by the neck, the grob lifted her away from her silky bed sheets.

Cenaya pulled at its slimy fingers. She couldn’t breathe. Soft footsteps entered her room. 

With a shriek, the creature released its grip. Cenaya fell to the ground and rolled away. The grob toppled over.


Cenaya felt a rush of relief. She recognized the arrow sticking out from the back of the grob’s armor.


And now for the

Blog tour: Duck, Duck, Moose by Joy Heyer




Duck’s best friend Goose is gone for winter and Duck is lonely. The animals try to cheer Duck, but Duck, Duck, Pig is too messy, and Duck, Duck, Moose is too scary. 
Will Duck be alone until Goose gets back? Or can Duck come up with a game they all can play?













Joy Heyer lives in Virginia with her loving husband and three of her four crazy children. Her oldest child now has a child of her own, making Joy a grandma. 

Her family recently convinced her to get a dog. What was she thinking? The dog now follows Joy everywhere, waits loyally at the front window every time she leaves the house, and goes berserk when she comes back, even if she was only gone for 10 seconds to get the mail. 

In her spare time….wait, what spare time? Whenever her children and dog permit, she loves to read, write, paint, and dream up home improvement projects.





Duck, Duck, Moose is a fun book about friendship and giving those who are different from us a chance. This children's book has a great message for all ages. The illustrations are fantastic and colorful. I think this will appeal to young and old audiences alike and can't wait to share this with all of my friends.

Five Stars for sure.

Synopsis:

The Revenants are coming. Only recently woken from their centuries' long slumber, the dragons are unprepared to face them. But when a legend is uncovered, revealing the existence of a lost tribe of mages, hope flickers to life. The race is on as Tyler Durand and Anwen Kaida rush to find this missing tribe while the others prepare for their last stand. But time and numbers are against them, and Anwen fears that even if they find the lost mages, it will be too late. 


First, let's take a look inside the book with this 
Excerpt:

Anwen felt her heart palpitate painfully. It squeezed the breath from her lungs as fire coursed through her veins. She gasped out loud as pain similar to her soul scars flared with white-hot agony. But instead of centering on her limbs, the pain hit her side and chest. “No,” she exclaimed as she doubled over, realizing what it meant. “Tyler!” she screamed. The crystal sword fell from her hand, leaving her unarmed.
An image came to her mind as she lay on the ground, her whole body trembling. She could see Tyler wreathing on the ground like an agitated snake. Dark steam issued from a gaping wound across his side and middle. The wound frothed like an angry tide.

And now for the Cover

Book Blitz: Seventh Born by Rachel Rossano






Rachel Rossano lives with her husband and three children in the northeastern part of the United States. Homeschooled through high school, she began writing her early teens. She didn’t become serious about pursuing a career as an author until after she had graduated from college and happily married. Then the children came.


Now she spends her days being a wife, mother, teacher, and household manager. Her evenings and free moments are devoted to her other loves, writing and book cover design. Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page. 





In a world where seventh born sons are valued for their strength and power, she is born a daughter.


Zezilia Ilar is the disappointment. Born after six brothers, she was supposed to be the son to restore her family’s prestige. She intends to remedy her shortcomings by being a dutiful daughter, marrying well and producing children, preferably a set of seven sons. But when someone offers her an alternative, she begins to dream of more.


In a society that worships a goddess, he follows the Almighty.

Hadrian Aleron, as a seventh son of a seventh son, stands to take up the second highest position in government, Sept Son. His main qualification for office is his birth. Despite preparing for this role from childhood, he does not desire what is to come. As a follower of the Almighty, he knows he will be the target of many, and his faith might eventually lead to death.




Snippet:

I frowned. Master Silas’ touch and the word in my mind had been vastly different than the sending from Master Aleron. “Does it always feel like that?”
He looked over at me and quirked an eyebrow. “Like what?”
“You know, a taste in the mouth and the pressure of something touching inside your head.” I struggled to find the words for the feeling, but those were all that came and they seemed inadequate.
“The taste, yes,” he agreed. “Each sender has a different taste and some have sensations that come with the words.”
“So, every time Master Silas sends a thought to you, your mouth tastes plums.” I looked up at him.
He smiled and nodded. “Yes.”
“What do I taste like?” I asked.
He laughed and stopped. “You are the first person to ask me that.”
“You mean you don’t know what you taste like?”
He smiled at that. “I have been told my taste defies description. I am not saying it to be prideful. There just isn’t a substance that anyone knows of that matches mine.”
I nodded. That I believed. His taste was different than anything I had ever tasted. “When you interrupted my thoughts, did you…” I looked up to find him watching my face with a thoughtful look. “Am I wrong to ask?”
“No,” he replied slowly. “I just…” Then suddenly turning away, he began striding down the path toward the water gardens. I had to trot at a very unladylike pace to keep up with him.

Loving the Book Party and Blitz Event


Welcome everyone, we are so excited to introduce you to all our new updates!!!  We have been working hard to redesign, remodel and rejuvenate Loving The Book and we want to share this exciting new look with you!


Today we are featuring a treasure hunt on the same Party and Blitz page and 
The grand prize for the 2-day event is a KINDLE FIRE!



Things you may not know about 
Loving The Book


Who are the team behind Loving The Book?


Becca Lamoreaux

Becca has a BA in English, Creative Writing, and has been doing work as a publicist for several years. She loves to throw parties and she loves to read books. Plus, as an author, she knew the struggles of getting a book noticed and the difficulty in marketing a new book. So she formed this business as a way to help other authors get their work seen and their books known.

Becca is married to a wonderful man who puts up with her crazy imagination, her super excitable personality, and her 2 pets (a puppy named Deise and a cat named Niku). When she is not creating and hosting events, she is reading, writing, playing instruments, and dancing in her kitchen while singing as loud as she can.

Reading books has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember and her love of writing came before she actually knew how to make letters. She squeezes writing time in between working, housework, and baking (which she is currently grounded from doing as her husband is blaming her for his weight gain.)



Katie Summerill


Katie has had a passion for books from the moment she learned how to read. In first grade, she received the award for most books read during the school year (352 books). In Jr. High, Katie would go to the library to get 2-3 books which she would read during classes and then after school return those books and check out 3-4 more to take home with her. She regularly got reprimanded for reading during classes. However with the onset of responsibilities, first getting a job, then getting married, going to university and having children, book reading has become a revered and eagerly anticipated activity.

Katie now lives in England with her husband and three lovely children. Activities she enjoys with her family are walking in the beautiful countryside, visiting sites of historical significance, and geocaching. Without her family’s involvement, she enjoys planning family holidays they will never take, sitting in a few blessed moments of silence, and of course, reading!


Abby Call

Abby is a senior in high school who has always loved reading all kinds of books. She is looking forward to graduation this spring and then pursuing a degree in psychology at a University. Abby hopes to use her training in psychology to help hospital patients cope with their illnesses.

Abby is the youngest of four children and a bit of a homebody who loves to spend time with her family and her two dogs, Beef and Boo. She also loves cooking, painting, and anything involving art. Although Abby prefers to be at home, she has had the wonderful opportunity to travel internationally and loves learning about other cultures and creating new friendships.




Nick Campbell

Nick is not a big reader and tends to fall asleep while reading books. However, he has a great love for graphic design and after studying graphic design in college started his own design company and created several large company logos. Nick now works at Costco and has designed several of their posters that you may have seen at the checkout stands. And while his graphic design has become more of a side business, Nick was excited to join the Loving the Book team because his wife is an author and he believed in their mission to help authors get seen.


Aubrey Baker

Aubrey is a Junior in high school who plays flute in the marching band has participated in many band competitions, winning many awards. She enjoys reading, poetry, math, riding her bike, music, and crafts.  Aubrey is the middle of three children with an older brother and a younger sister. She enjoys spending time with her pet Boa. While she does not yet know what she wants to be when she "grows up", she has considered doing something in the field of psychology.
