We also welcome Tasha Ivey and her new book, Destiny Ever After to our blog today!!
Some are destined for greatness . . . others for pure unadulterated misery.

After catching her boyfriend with another woman, Laura struggles with beginning again, knowing deep down that she is destined to be unhappily out of love for her entire life. Needing some time to recoup and formulate a game plan, she decides to visit her notoriously wise grandmother. But once there, a curveball in the form of a deliciously attractive stranger has her falling again.

Brooks is another story altogether. He is quite content with his life until his father forces him into a business decision that will ruin the rest of his life. As if his relationship with his father isn’t tumultuous enough, his new fiancĂ© is making every waking moment a living hell and loving every manipulative minute of it.

When Laura stumbles upon her mother’s old journal, she opens a door into a long forgotten past. A past that somehow leads both Laura and Brooks into unfamiliar territory and changes everything they ever knew about fate.

Destiny is ever-changing, after all.

Excerpt– Brooks’s POV
"Dad, this is ridiculous! You can't honestly expect me to marry someone just to acquire her family's business. I don't love her! I couldn't pretend to love her if it meant taking control of every oil company in the country!"

My father stood and marched across the room, joining me by the window. "Let me put it in a way that you'll understand more clearly." He turned and looked me directly in the eyes. "You will marry Jacqueline Martens, and you will pretend to be ecstatic about it. I don't care if you are divorced the very hour after we sign the contracts, but you will do it. If you don't, I will take everything away from you so fast that your head will spin: your job, your truck, your home, your boat, your money, and everything else, including the very clothes on your back. You'll have nothing, and you'll be nothing."

The weight of what he said started sinking in, and I had to stumble over to the leather chair facing his desk to regain my composure before I passed out. My father and I haven't had the best of relationships, but I never would have imagined him insisting that I give up my own happiness and chance of finding real love, just for the sake of his business. I knew that I could find another job, car, and home, but without any money at all to start out, I'd be living on the street. The very notion of that made my stomach flop, and I felt nauseated.

My father walked over to me and started rubbing my shoulder. "It doesn't have to turn out that way, son. Just think of it as a business decision, that's all. What's a year of being married to her going to harm? You're just thirty years old. And, hell, who knows, you may end up loving her. Besides, I really don't see how you have any other options."

I glared at him. "I don't have any options, because you're not giving me any."

"So it's settled then?"

I stood to face my father after a few seconds of hesitation. "You had it settled before I walked into this room."

"I knew you would do the right thing!" He slapped me on the back. "I'll call Carl and arrange a time for the three of us to discuss the details. When should I tell him that you'll be proposing? Oh, never mind that, I know just the thing. We'll all be together tomorrow night at that charity dinner. That would be perfect."

"Tomorrow? In front of all those people? Tomorrow?" No amount of repeating it made it sound any further away.

"I guess you'll need the rest of the day off to pick out a ring, then," he said after nodding his head. "I'll call the jeweler we always use and tell him you're on your way. You remember where it is, right?"

"Unfortunately, I do."

He slapped me on the back again. "Get used to saying that, kid."

My top ten must haves when writing…
1. CAFFEINE! Coffee, tea, Diet Coke . . . in no certain order.
2. Mood music. I’m addicted to Spotify!
3. Inspirational pictures. I keep a file for each book of scenery, houses, and of course, HOT guys to keep me inspired and on the right track.
4. My sprinting buddies. I have some amazing author friends that keep me accountable for getting those words out.
5. My sister, Ashton. She’s the one I throw ideas around with when I get stuck.
6. Facebook friends and fans that keep me motivated. There are some bloggers and fans that are always there to give me that push I need. They rock my world!
7. Candy! Twizzlers, Skittles, Jelly Bellys, etc. Anything fruity or sour to keep me awake on those late night writing streaks.
8. My blanket. Yes, I’m an adult-sized toddler who likes to cuddle with my blanket. Don’t judge me.
9. Google. I constantly research while I write, so I ALWAYS have Google open.
10. My phone. When I can’t get to my laptop, I’m always stopping to type a quick scene or idea when it pops into my head, so I don’t lose it.

Author Bio:
Tasha Ivey is a literature fanatic, whose love for the written word fostered her development into the writer she has become. A lover of an extremely erratic mixture of literature, she has been influenced by authors from Jane Austen and E.M. Forster to Charlaine Harris and Alyson Noel. But her biggest influence and literary hero? Nicholas Sparks. Aside from writing, since she doesn’t have anything other than a shriveled up prune on the left side of her brain, she prefers to spend her time being creative in other ways like painting, cake decorating, and various types of crafts. That is, if the constant voices streaming through her head allow her to stop making up stories for a while. Lucky for her, she has a huge supportive family, including her amazing husband and two kids, who doesn’t complain too much when she hangs out with her characters more than she does with them. She is currently working on her second novel, Every Breath, which is due to release this year, and she also plans to start a sequel to her first novel, Destiny Ever-changing, this summer.

Note from Author:
I feel horrible about promoting myself this week, in light of the Boston tragedy. I feel like I need to do something, so I’ve decided to donate half of my proceeds during the blog tour to the American Red Cross. I don’t want people to get the wrong idea. This isn’t for me to increase my sales. If I only sell 10 books this week, that’s a little more money raised than I could offer on my own. And I will be donating some of my own money toward this, with or without the sales. The Red Cross is always the first to respond in a tragedy like this, and they are always begging for blood and monetary donations to keep up with demand. I can’t personally go to Boston to do any good, so this is what I CAN do. If you like, you can share this on your blogs. If not, I urge you to direct your followers to donate on their own.

Thanks for your help, and join me in praying for those affected!
