Review & Excerpt Book Tour Grand Finale for
The Matchmaking Game
By Donna Hatch

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the reviews
or reading the first chapter of the book, go back and do so now...

Launch - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 1

England 1814

Rowena Emerson studied her longtime friend, Evan Barnes, and tried to judge by his expression if he’d be game for a new scheme. It was hard to tell; he had come home from the war a mysterious stranger, with only glimpses of his former playful self who had always been ready for a new lark.

"I loved reading this book. I have read several Donna Hatch’s books and loved everyone of them. . . . I would definitely recommend this book to other readers, especially those who enjoy a good clean romantic novel."

Hearts & Scribbles - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 2

“Semantics. Come.” She stood. “Let’s go out for some air, and I’ll tell you all about it. There is a terrace outside,” she added in case he didn’t remember the layout of their host’s home.

He rose, his posture straight as a tin soldier. The lamplight shone on his dark hair, regulation-short rather than stylish, but it suited his new military bearing. “I have a feeling I’m going to regret even listening to your idea.”

Bookworm Nation - Review

"... I was quickly sucked into the story and didn't want to leave. I loved the slow buildup of the romance between these two, and how everything works out. Like I said, its a charming regency that will warm your heart. Very enjoyable."

Q: What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

A: Wow, that’s a tough question. The first chapter was effortless; it practically wrote itself. I loved the chapter where they really see each other as attractive adults, and not as the childhood friends they used to be. The big kissing scene was also super fun, and, ahem, very much put me in the mood when my husband came home.

Wishful Endings - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 3

She laughed at his indignation, then put a hand over her mouth to muffle the sound. “I’m only quizzing you, Evan. I haven’t done that sort of thing for at least a month.”

She chuckled at his raised brows. His departure for the war had put an end to most of her pranks. Losing her friend and cohort, not to mention her heartbreak at his absence, had taken the joy out of many of her favorite pastimes. She’d settled for more mundane activities in his absence. Now that he was back, she could finally breathe easy.

Hardcover Feedback - Review

"The ending was great and I enjoyed every minute of reading this book. I think anyone who enjoys reading stories set in this period will love The Matchmaking Game too."

The Silver Dagger Scriptorium - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 4

Rowena pointed her chin at the couple. “Look at her. Look at my papa. I think they have always been fond of one another—they are often near each other. It probably wouldn’t take much on our part to help them realize they would make a perfect match.”

Evan lifted a dark brow. “You want my mother to marry your papa?”

Christy's Cozy Corners - Review

"You will love Rowena and Evan. They are very fun characters! I really enjoy when a novella can make a romance believable in such a short few pages. The Matchmaking Game is another one to add to your lists!"

"The progression of the storyline is sweet and natural, causing the reader (me included) to feel swept up in the events and to feel a part of the story, as it's very believable."

"The Matchmaking Game by Donna Hatch is a delightful treat for the heart! With sizzling kisses, charming humor, and a tender friendship, it’s the perfect choice for a quick weekend read. You will fall in love with the characters and be sad to bid them farewell. And did I mention the kisses?!?!"

Heidi Reads... - Review

"Such a great story! The characters are vivid, the setting is awesome, the conflict is angsty, and the romance is... so romantic! . . . I loved this Regency romance and could not put it down until I was finished!"

"I would call this a regency read for sure, but I appreciate the love story, the story line itself and the loving romance. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and I am sure most every other reader will too."

deal sharing aunt - Interview & Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 5

Q: What do you think makes a good story?

A: Good stories stem from unforgettable, complex characters who overcome obstacles, find new strength they didn’t know they had, and learn to place others’ happiness above their own. I love it when the hero is strong and yet has a vulnerable side to him—I find that very endearing. And of course, the happily-ever-after!

Rowena gave his arm a little shake. “I adore your mother, and I think she’d make my papa very happy. He needs the influence of a wife and companion, as I’m sure your mother would welcome a man to love and care for her.”

“Ro, this isn’t our place.”

Mel's Shelves - Review

"It's a great story of childhood friends whose feelings evolve as they get older. They are perfect for each other, but there's an obstacle to overcome to get to a happy ending. I enjoyed how it all played out. This is a great pick if you're looking for a quick, clean Regency romance to keep you entertained for an afternoon!"

"Donna Hatch does such a good job of creating characters that feel real and sincere. I love that. . . . This book was just fun. It made me smile and left me feeling happy."

Bookworm Lisa - Review

This book has some cute twists and turns. All is not as it seems. There are counter plots in the making. The book is a short and fun book to read for the pleasure of reading. I enjoyed my time engaged in the story.

Celticlady's Reviews - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 6

She heaved a sigh. “Very well, then. What else can we do?”

“Stay out of their business?”

She smacked his arm with her fan. “Don’t be a wet blanket. This is just what they both need. Think of how devious and clever we’ll have to be to make them each realize that the other is interested.”

Booklove - Spotlight

Nicole's Book Musings - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 7

Perhaps Evan’s reluctance sprang from a new source. Rowena softened her voice. “She can still love and honor your father’s memory even if she remarries.”

He murmured, “I know.”

Beck Valley Books - Excerpt, Chapter One, Part 8

Rowena opened her mouth and then closed it with a snap. The last thing Evan needed was a husband-hunter like Cynthia Pritchard dogging him. Evan had only been home from war a short time and had much more pressing issues—like helping match her papa with his mother.

"From page one readers will be pulled into the story and not want to put it down until the end. It is a sweet romance that will fill the heart with happiness and warmth."

1.  When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I guess you could say I first realized it when I was in first or second grade. I can't exactly remember which. But my teacher had us create little books where we made up a story about a favorite toy or person. I remember I wrote about this little doll I had named Krissy. I actually still have the book I made.

2.  How long does it take you to write a book?

That is the million dollar question because it's different for each book. It also depends on what else I have going on at the time. Last year I was able to do about a book a year, mostly because I worked a day job. Now that I don't have a day job? Who knows? I still have a lot of projects going on and sometimes the characters get jealous, so I'd say it takes a whole year, start to finish, to write a book, eight to ten months at the minimum. Though, I'm sure if I really wanted to, I could finish one in a couple of months, if the characters cooperate. ;)

3.  What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

My work schedule, unfortunately, varies on a lot of factors. As I said above, I do various other projects as well, but I try to get in at least an hour of writing every day. When my husband doesn't work, it doesn't happen as much, unfortunately, mostly because we see so little of each other during the week. But, I try to get at least an hour in every day. I'll work on my stories until either my eyes start going cross or I just have to get up and move or do something else.

4.  What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

My interesting writing quirk? I guess it's that I like to be alone when I write. It's hard for me to write when there are others around. I put on my jams, pull up my word document, and start going at it. Though, there are times, off and on, where I prefer to write it all out by hand in a notebook before transferring it into my word document. I do tend to get restless from time to time and will leave the house and find some place in nature to just jot down stuff in my notebook.

5.  How do books get published?

Books get published in a number of different ways. If you go traditional, you have to either have some really good luck to get picked up by a publishing house on merit alone, or find an agent who will try and broker you a deal with a publishing house. And not every agent or publisher will want your work. They have a set idea of what they think will sell and if they don't think you're work is it, you don't get represented. And, in the off chance you do get picked, you're waiting on someone else to get everything done, with less control on your end. They set the type, format it, do some editing, create the cover, some promotion, print it up and distribute it for you. But you still have to do a lot of your own promotional work.
You go the Indie route, which is what I do, you have more control over everything. You end up also having to do everything, creating the cover art, formatting the manuscript, editing, the whole nine yards, along with finding someone to print them, distribute them, etc. I went this route after various agents and whatnots decided I wasn't "a good fit" for them, even though I knew I had a good "product".

6.  Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Most of the ideas for my books come from either random thoughts I have while reading other books, watching tv shows, or just observing others. Other times, the ideas come from snippets of dreams I've had. Or, with my only children's book, from making it up on the spot while teaching preschool. It just depends. My Tarragon series started out with a dream I had. However, along the way, I do have to do some research to make sure things work both in my imaginary world and the real world. I try to go for a feeling of realism in most of my writing (anything for middle grade and up) so I will look things up on the internet or use my husband for information.

7.  When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I wrote my first full manuscript when I was in ninth grade, so I was probably about.... fourteen or fifteen years old. Over the course of the years, learning more about writing and story-telling, I expanded on it and improved it into the first book I published, The Unknown Elf.

8.  What do you like to do when you're not writing?

When I'm not writing, I work on my non-profit radio drama production, read, write fan fiction, watch tv with my hubby, sometimes play video games, go on long walks, bake, or just chill while watching cat videos on facebook and magic videos on Youtube.

9.  What does your family think of your writing?

Actually, a lot of my family writes as well, so I'd say they think it's pretty cool. My mom writes middle grade mysteries. My oldest sister writes young adult and adult novels. My second oldest writes poetry. The sister under me mostly writes songs and the lyrics that go with them. And my other siblings write general fiction and fan fiction. Even my husband writes general fiction/fantasy. I'm just the only one who's gotten published so far, though I can't wait until they do as well.

10.   What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

The most surprising thing I learned is probably just how much goes into everything. I mean, I had a basic idea of needing to edit and format and create a cover and all that. But when it came to getting printing stuff done, I was a little surprised at how it worked. There's getting an ISBN, unless you want someone else to claim to be your publisher of record, there's the final edits, promotional stuff (that is a constant), and just launching it. It's a lot of hard work and I"ll be the first to admit I'm not very good at the promotional part. But, honestly, the hardest part is probably waiting to see what people think about what I've done, if they like it, if it will do well. It's easy to second-guess yourself when you're going Indie and you hear all these success stories of others also going Indie and you're sitting here, staring at your sales rankings, wondering when they'll actually move upwards.

11. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

So far, I've got five books fully written and/or published. And I can't honestly say I have a favorite because I like each one for different reasons. My children's book, I like because I didn't think I could do it, illustrate and write a children's book. I"d tried for years and failed, until I worked at a preschool. The elf book was a start to my own Santa Claus mythos, which has always fascinated me. Kas is my homage to Beauty and the Beast. Tarragon: Key Keeper and Dragon Mage are my first truly different, I guess, works, and decidedly the most complex. And the final one in the trilogy is going to be even more so.

12. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

The best suggestion I can give you is to keep writing and don't sweat the small stuff. It took me almost twenty years to finally try and publish a book. Of course, there were tons of edits and changes between, and times off and on with actually writing. But the best thing I can tell you is to keep at it and don't expect perfection. There will come a time when you just have to say "It's good enough" and let it go out there. Then, if it doesn't get a bite, go ahead and go back and see if you missed something.

13.  Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I occasionally get reviews, but no readers of my older works have really said much to me. Since my children's book was created here, and I have had the opportunity to market it more in the area I currently live, I do get more feedback from that. And I love it! Those who review my novels tend to either love or hate them, though the only one that really gets the most hate is Kas. It's not your typical story and makes you think, so I believe that contributes to that. But the majority of people who say anything seem to like what I write and can somehow relate to the characters, which is what I hoped would happen in the long run.

14. Do you like to create books for adults?

I haven't gotten as into creating books for the more adult audiences yet, though I do have some in the works. I guess you could say adults can enjoy what I've already written, and most who have read them do enjoy them, even the children's book. But as for books meant for the older audiences, I haven't published any yet, started a few, but they're nowhere near ready right now. But I love to explore new ways of improving my craft. It's all about the story for me, regardless of target age. If the story sings, I'm cool with any age group reading my works, so long as they're able to handle them.

15. What do you think makes a good story?

I think a good story requires relatable characters, firm background locations (the world is a character in of itself), compelling and relatable circumstances they must face, flaws in the characters, a reason for the audience to become invested. It is how the words are spun. They have to make a compelling argument, make the reader question what will happen next, or give them just enough of a question to wonder what might happen. It has to be compelling, with writing that isn't dry. A Tale of Two Cities is a good story, but I find the writing dry, as do most modern readers, so it has to be relevant to the current generation, presenting things they can understand or be persuaded to understand. That's what makes a great story.

16. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I have always wanted to be a writer, mixed in with wanting to be an artist. I do a bit of both. I create my own promotional items. I create my book covers and illustrations. It's the best of both worlds.

17. What Would you like my readers to know?

I would like your readers to know that there is more to life than what we see through our limited views, that there is always a way to overcome, even if it means stepping to the side instead of moving forward. I want them to know that anyone can be anything if they really try and look for a new angle.

Beautiful Sacrifice by Ember Raine Winters Excerpt & Giveaway

Beautiful Sacrifice
Ember Raine Winters
(Pride and Honor, #2)
Publication date: April 20th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
Being a cop, I didn’t have any choice, but I really wish I hadn’t got mixed up in this case. My dark past is catching up to me ever since he barreled into my life without a care. It terrifies me that he sees right through me. He could be the one to save me . . . or break me.

It was just a job. Until it wasn’t. By then the sexy little redhead had her claws in me. Now, she’s in my life and I’m lost. How am I supposed to keep the demons from her past from eating her alive? I don’t know, but I will do whatever it takes to make her mine.
It happened again. I didn’t think a person could dream when they were that drunk. I was wrong. She let out a blood-curdling scream, and I jumped from my spot on the couch and ran into the bedroom. I was looking around wildly for any possible threat, when I noticed Tasha thrashing and whimpering in the bed.
“Tasha? Tasha!” I bellowed.
I walked over to the bed and brushed the hair from her face and watched as she settled. Walking around the bed, I figured I’d stay and make sure another nightmare didn’t come back. I leaned up against the headboard and watched her sleep for a bit. I was drowning.
I couldn’t believe how much this woman had gotten under my skin. I didn’t like it, but as I sat there looking at her sleep, her scarlet locks framing the pillow, I knew I was done for. I would do anything to protect her, even from herself.

Author Bio:

On Seas So Crimson by James Young Interview & GIVEAWAY

On Seas So Crimson
by James Young


GENRE: Alternate History



Adolf Hitler is dead.  Great Britain has fallen.  The Royal Family has fled to Canada, and the United States stands alone against the Axis.

On Seas So Crimson collects both novels of the Usurper's War into a single package.  Acts of War (Amazon Bestseller in alternate history) begins this universe with London on fire, while Collisions of the Damned (recommended by Alternate History Weekly) continues it with the desperate defense of the Dutch East Indies. 


Excerpt One:

It’s never a good day when you become commander of a vessel simply because no one else was left.  From what he understood, Keir had started the day as chief of Hood’s Navigation Division.  That had been before the vessel took at least three 15-inch shells to the bridge area, as well as two more that had wiped out her gunnery directory and the secondary bridge.

Captain Gordon was right—she was a very powerful warship.  Unfortunately that tends to make you a target.

“Commander, you are certain that…” Gordon started, then collected himself.  “You are certain His Majesty is dead.”

“Yes sir,” Keir said.  “His Majesty was in the conning tower with Admiral Pound when it was hit.  The Royal Surgeon positively identified His Majesty’s body in the aid station before that was hit in turn.  We cannot get to the aid station due to the spreading fire.”

“Understood.  His Majesty would not have wanted any of you to risk his life for his body,” Gordon said.

“I just…” Keir started, then stopped, overcome with emotion.

“It is not your fault lad,” Gordon said.  “Her Majesty will understand.”

Gordon turned and looked at the Exeter’s clock.

“Very well, we are out of time.  Stand by to fire torpedoes.”

“Torpedoes report they are ready.”

“Sir, you may want to tell your torpedo officer to have his weapons set to run deep,” Keir said.  “She’s drawing…”

There was a large explosion aboard Hood as the flames reached a secondary turret’s ready ammunition.  Eric saw a fiery object arc slowly across, descending towards the Exeter as hundreds of helpless eyes watched it.  The flaming debris’ lazy parabola terminated barely fifty yards off of Exeter’s side with a large, audible splash.

“I think we do not have time for that discussion,” Gordon said grimly.  “Fire torpedoes!”

The three weapons from Exeter’s starboard tubes sprang from their launchers into the water.  Set as a narrow spread, the three tracks seemed to take forever to impact from Eric’s perspective.  Exeter’s torpedo officer, observing Hood’s state, had taken into account the battlecruiser’s lower draught without having to be told.  Indeed, he had almost set the weapons for too deep a run, but was saved by the flooding that had occurred in the previous few minutes.  In addition to breaking the battlecruiser’s keel, the triple blow opened the entire aft third of her port side to the ocean.  With the audible sound of twisting metal, Hood started to roll onto her beam ends.  She never completed the evolution before slipping beneath the waves.

Where are you from?

I’m originally from Missouri, but now reside in Kansas.

Tell us your latest news?

I just returned from San Diego where I received an award for winning the United States Naval Institute’s Cyber Essay Contest.  Your readers can find the essay here:

When and why did you begin writing?

I started writing when I was in grade school. As an avid reader, I started wanting to tell stories with different endings.  

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

If one is putting stories to paper, you’re a writer.  I was forever stealing my mother’s legal pads and jotting down words once I was in junior high, then hogging the word processor or computer when I was in high school.  I actually won $5 when I was a senior with a local writing contest.

What inspired you to write your first book?

So the first book I ever finished was inspired by Tom Clancy’s Red Storm Rising.  It was back in the early ‘90s, and was a thriller involving a reunified Soviet Union attacking Western Europe.  Knowing what I do now about Russian / Soviet history, part of me is glad that thing disappeared.

What would you like my readers to know?

I write military science fiction and alternate history.  You can find me at my blog, “The Colfax Den,” on Facebook, on Twitter (@Youngblai), or by following my Amazon Author Page.  My next novel, Though Our Hulls Burn… should be out by the end of the year.


James Young will be awarding a 9 x 12 print of the cover painting, "Death of Kongo" signed by the author and the artist Wayne Scarpaci (US ONLY GIVEAWAY) to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.
