Happy Thursday, Everyone!

This is an exciting day because I have been given the honor to introduce two new authors, my crazy and wonderful friends, co-authors, Toni and Kira, AKA, TONI DECKER. They have dropped by to unveil their debut novel's cover of IMAGES ETERNAL, THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SHOALMAN CHRONICLES. This day has been a long time coming and I'm so very proud of them for making their dreams come true!!

So without further ado, drum roll please....


Sharon Carpenter, Behind the Images

Images Eternal is the first book in The Shoalman Chronicles by Toni Decker. It will be available for purchase September 15th.

Toni Decker left us a blurb. 

The blood of a Guardian, the heart of an artist, no one can hide the truth from Amanda Hayworth. Focusing her visions through her camera lens, she reveals secrets no one plans to expose, even her own. To protect herself, Mandy hides her ability in plain sight, photographing local bands and showcasing the dramatic images on her website. Most bands beg for a feature article. But the new lead singer of one particular up and coming band isn’t like anyone she’s ever met. Lucien entangles her with his mystery and makes Mandy want things she’s never wanted before—strings.

Lucien Solvak has to impress an influential music blogger whose promotion could skyrocket his new band to stardom or flush them straight into the gutters. But the moment Mandy aims her camera his direction, he fears the images will expose his ties to the immortal he’s sworn to protect and destroy his one chance to live out his musical dream. Hiding from her camera is tough enough. Denying his growing feelings becomes an impossible feat, forcing Lucien to choose between oaths as a Guardian, his rock-star dreams, and the girl he wants.

Secrets define them. Lucien’s bind him to silence; Mandy’s bring her nothing but pain and disappointment. Only when they focus on what’s behind the images can they embrace their secrets for what they are—truth.

Who is Toni Decker

Yup, that's them below, Toni on the left and Kira on the right. AND yes, they are that silly and wonderful. They are the best of friends and so much fun to be around. 

Two authors telling one sizzling story after another about twenty-somethings getting along in their own crazy, fantastical worlds. Both women are wives and mothers, sharing brain cells and characters as if they only exist with the other.Toni, one half of the Toni Decker brain, is an avid reader of all things Young and New Adult while Kira, the Decker half of Toni Decker brain, devours fantasy for midnight snacks.

The cover for Images Eternal was designed by an incredibly talented graphic artist, Sharon Carpenter, Special Behind The Image Exclusive. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to work with her and we can't wait to see what she comes up with for the next cover in this series.

I wish Toni Decker great sales and the best life can offer. Did I mention that Images Eternal by Toni Decker will be available for purchase September 15th? That's September 15th. Mark your calendars. AND you can look for Shoalman Immortal, Book two in The Shoalman Chronicles in January 2015.

I hope you have a great day and please be nice to one another.

Hugs to all,

Nancy C. Weeks
