I chose Jessica. 
I married her. 
She saved me. 
Me — Jonathan Drazen. 
What would happen if the wind shifted direction? If I made new suggestions? 
I changed my line of sight. I started to focus on the unattainable because nothing was out of my reach. Nothing. 
I had the universe by a string. A yo-yo. I could bring it up or down. I could fit it inside my pocket and carry it anywhere I pleased. 
Then why did I have an uneasy feeling? The kind of sensation an animal feels just before a storm or an earthquake? It was subtle enough to ignore, yet strong enough to prick me, reminding me that denial would result in severe repercussions to my psyche or my marriage. 
Suffer now or suffer later. 
I had a choice. 
Fly away from the clouds or dive head first into the nebula. 


Who is A.R. Hadley?

A.R. Hadley writes imperfectly perfect sentences by the light of her iPhone. 
She loves her husband. 
Her children. 
And Cary Grant. 
She annoys those darling little children by quoting lines from Back to the Future, but despite her knowledge of eighties and nineties pop culture, she was actually meant to live alongside the lost generation after the Great War and write a mediocre novel while drinking absinthe with Hemingway. Instead, find her sipping sweet tea with extra lemons on her porch as she weaves fictional tales of love and angst amid reality. 
A creative writer since elementary school, A.R. all but gave it up after her children were born, devoting herself to the lovely little creatures, forgetting the pleasure and happiness she derived from being imaginative. 
No more.
She rediscovered her passion in 2014 and has not stopped since — writing essays, poetry, and fiction. She is currently working on completing several novels as part of a romantic trilogy. 
Day or night, words float around inside her mind. She hears dialogue when she awakens from sleep. She is the one who has been awakened. Writing is her oxygen. Cary Grant fans the flames.

**I LOVE HER BIO. Mine is not nearly as cool!!**

Featured Author: Sandra J. Jackson

Promised Soul Promo Image

I would like to introduce author Sandra J. Jackson. Sandra was born in Montreal, Quebec and now resides with her husband and children in Eastern Ontario. Writing has  always been Sandra’s passion; creating works of art for her family and friends. Her children, however, brought out the storyteller inside when Sandra told them bedtime stories.

Eventually, the stories faded but Sandra’s desire to write blossomed. Fed by her personal experiences, she began writing. As she wrote, her confidence grew and so did her courage. Sandra began sharing her ideas, even volunteering to write articles for her son’s hockey team for publication in the local paper.

With several stories in various stages of completion, Sandra made a decision. Armed with her experience of travelling to the east coast, her wholehearted belief in soulmates and the draw she has always felt for the UK, Promised Soul was born.

Promised Soul looks very interesting- check out the blurb, testimonials and special excerpt:


Just as Krista’s summer plans are finalized, she is suddenly plagued by strange dreams and intense feelings of déjà vu. Feeling as though she’s losing her mind, she visits a psychic medium, only to feel more confused. When Krista arrives in England, her dreams persist, and she finds herself at the doorstep of another psychic; she needs clarity. Finally, the words she was afraid to say out loud, are spoken. Her dreams aren’t just dreams, but memories from a past life. Now Krista has to figure out what it all means.

Promised Soul is the story of the past, the present and the future of two souls that have been bound together by eternal and transcending love. Amazon.com


Excerpt from Lilian’s Book Blog – for complete review visit http://www.lilianflesher.blogspot.ca “You will meet many characters in this story who will charm you and make you smile, but will being in a strange country make Krista homesick? Will she find the answers she seeks? Believe me when I say this book is fantastic, you will not want to put it down.” By Lilian Flesher – UK

Amazon.ca “I’ve averaged a book a week for over 30 years. This book kept me captivated from start to finish! I’m looking forward to her next book!” – By ljreid – Brockville, ON Canada

Goodreads “Promised Soul is like no other book I have ever read. That is really refreshing. Just the thought of true love transcending time and space is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story of Krista and Aaron and more importantly Mary and Thomas. This gives me hope that we all have a soulmate out there. Simply put Promised Soul is an inspiration to all.” By Diana – USA

Special Excerpt:

Aaron brushed the grass from his lap and stood up, looked down at me, and stretched out his hand. I took hold of it feeling that familiar exchange of electricity, as he pulled me up a little too hard. I lost my balance and fell slightly forward into him, his arms instinctively wrapped around me for protection.

“Oh, sorry.” I said trying to pull away from the now awkward situation.

“Don’t be.”

Aaron bent forward and kissed me. A kiss that was long, passionate, and gentle. A kiss saved for lovers who have been apart; a kiss that sent heat and shivers at the same time, coursing through my body. A kiss that made time stand still and yet made the world spin. A kiss that promised; a kiss that bound – for eternity.
