Sometimes when blog tour organizers are going through all of the blogs and querying for blog tours--we contact someone that REALLY does not want to be bothered with a potential blog tour. And sometimes, when said blog tour organizer doesn't mark her form, she contacts that blogger twice.
So, Alicia, this is to make up for bugging you not once, but twice. I get to tell people about your great book. It's a hell of a penance, but it had to be done. (Note, four and half-stars on Amazon with fifty reviews--so obviously pretty good.)
Thank you, Alicia, for being such a good sport. And please note, while you should contact this woman to tell her how good her book is--do NOT, whatever you do, contact this woman for a blog tour she's not interested in.
People, check out her book below:
IN A WORLD WHERE INSTANT LOVE IS PRIZED, WHAT IS INTEGRITY WORTH?
Reclusive ex-physician Kary Ashe transmutes personal tragedy into beloved best-selling novels. Actor Andrew O’Connell revels in the enviable status of leading man, with a reputation for perfectionism, an Irish temper, and broken hearts in his wake. Reigning Hollywood princess Bianca Doyle fears she’s already past her peak, and schemes to cement her position in the pantheon with Andrew as mate.
When Kary appears on a NY talk show to support a cherished cause, and becomes obsessed by fellow guest Andrew, movie star, she thinks she’s safe because she will never see him again. While Bianca, watching the show from far-off LA, is confident she can offer Andrew her own coveted insider rank.
But his next movie is filming near Kary’s Sanctuary, with Bianca as costar. Can Kary risk friendship with this intriguing man? Or will Bianca seduce him and meld her star to his? And will either ultimately satisfy Andrew’s twin lusts for fame and love?
Pride’s Children PURGATORY is a powerful literary debut. You don’t read PURGATORY, you live it. A deeply psychological experience, without flinching, from the driver’s seat right behind the eyeballs of three passionate people who can’t all get what they want. The choices, the devastating decisions, the consequences are all presented with the intimacy of a conscience. Ehrhardt conveys to you the gut-wrenching secrets of a disabled writer at the peak of her powers, a charismatic actor waiting in the spot where lightning strikes, and a ruthless woman who sees a golden future if she can but stick the Hollywood landing once and for all, as if you were wearing their skin.

Praise for Pride's Children: Purgatory
Colm Herron, Irish author of The Wake (And What Jeremiah Did Next), The Fabricator, and Further Adventures of James Joyce: "I was there, Alicia. THERE, in that sweaty studio, aware of the audience, rooting for Kary, contemptuous of Dana until, well, until I saw for sure that she was more than a plastic chat-show hostess. I wondered what Andrew was thinking. I could guess. I think his snort was involuntary and then thought better of. No better tribute can I pay than all that I've written above. I don't make this comment idly. This to me is top gear."
Herbert Collins (Saskatchewan), reader: "It definitely works for me. I feel Andrew's emotions, and feel for him. You have successfully given your readers a story that appeals to men and women. It is wonderfully written."
"Pride's Children has helped me to look inside myself and see many things I need to see and deal with. I have never read a work of fiction that has touched me so powerfully! I love it and will be rereading many times."
J. E. Hallows, author of Rebellious Rogue: "I've just finished reading Pride's Children [Book 1]. That last chapter was beautiful. Probably the most moving chapter of all, which is a great way to end the story."
Kevin Gebhard, American actor, screenwriter, and author of The Steeps: "You're right-on. It's hard to believe you're not writing this from [a movie] set."
"Oh, to be in a writer's head. Living amongst imaginary people. What could be better? But then comes the actual writing part. You caught it all."
"You really know how to write this stuff-like you were tucked in a coffee shop on Rodeo Drive (I lived in L.A. for five years)."

Follow her on PridesChildren.com to be informed when her next story is available.
A voracious reader, she had always intended to write fiction, and, now retired, dedicates her whole life - when not spending time with her husband, family, and chinchilla - to exploring the concepts of integrity in relationships, and the psychological questions of why people do what they do and make the choices they make, including their life partners.
She has devoted the past twenty-some years to learning to write to the standards of the early classics she was steeped in, as she believes that messages in fiction must be surrounded by the utmost in quality entertainment, and that fiction is the most powerful tool we have for slipping through the barriers we put up around our hearts and our minds.
As a writer, she's published traditionally in short story. She's been featured on Wattpad, where her story Too Late has received 67K reads, and where her debut novel Pride's Children: PURGATORY was serialized and currently has over 20K reads.
When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying the hummingbirds in her garden of perennials designed for them, or singing.

The monsters aren’t only in the museum!
Despite a lifetime of traveling with their father to collect strange artifacts, twins Topaz and Opal Cushing have never fully believed in monsters or the supernatural. Oh, sure, they share an eerie psychic connection, and their tarot card readings often come true, but… Werewolves? Vampires? Living mummies? None of those could be real. Those legends are just for rubes. Right?
Since the girls’ father has been away, though, strange things have been happening in the family’s little exhibit—and in the waxworks studio that shares their dilapidated Victorian mansion on the outskirts of London. Now, the twins’ dreams of a fun, romantic summer season are turning into a nightmare, and the monsters are running…

THERE IS SOMETHING STRANGE HAPPENING IN PLACIDVILLE!
It is 1962. Kathy Anderson, a serious actress who took her training at the Actors Studio in New York, is stuck playing Vivacia, the Vampire Woman on Vivacia’s House of Horrors for a local Chicago TV station.
Finally fed up showing old monster movies to creature feature fans, she quits and heads to New York and the fame and footlights of Broadway.
She stops off to visit her parents and old friends in Placidville, the all-Ameican, middle-class, blissfully normal Midwest small town she grew up in.
But she finds things are strange in Placidville.
Kathy’s parents, her best friend from high school, the local druggist, even the Oberhausen twins are all acting curiously creepy, odiously odd, and wholly weird. Especially the town’s super geeky nerd, Gerald, who warns of dark days ahead.
Has Kathy entered a zone in the twilight? Did she reach the limits that are outer? Has she fallen through a mirror that is black? Or is it just—just—politics as usual!
