Cassandra's Review-  For $25 I was able to purchase 50 Christmas bulbs.  I thought that was an amazing deal.  I have shopped at my local dollar store and found packs of 10 ornaments for one dollar, they are the same quality as the ones I received.  So doing the math, I am glad I was able to receive a complimentary $25 gift code.   When I saw the packages I could not help but think that the site has a warehouse that has X amount of bulk ornaments and then breaks them down to packs of 4 or 6 etc, to fit your order there by more than doubling their profits, which is genius.  I am sure that most businesses do this anyway.  So back to the site itself, the only downside is that it is not super easy to navigate and I had to really search for great prices, although   They do have a low to high function it is just not super specific and took me over an hour to find what I wanted.  I still think I could have picked a different selection or even ordered more if I could get to the prices and bulk I wanted.   Lastly the ornaments were about all I could afford as the rest of the stuff is pretty pricey, except of course for a light bulb and little pieces etc.

Lighting consumes over 20% of all the power used in the United States and incandescent lighting is becoming "banned" in many commercial applications and Canadian territories for use as holiday lighting and in new construction. That is why LED lights - the most efficient light source available to date - represent the greatest breakthrough in lighting technology since Edison's invention of the incandescent light bulb. LEDs are rapidly replacing incandescent and fluorescent lighting in a variety of functional applications including traffic lights, vehicle lights, industrial lighting, and emergency exit signs. LEDs are a low-maintenance, energy efficient solution for anyone looking for dynamic lighting displays. They are also versatile and can be used in many creative applications featuring a variety of brilliant colors and decorative styles to choose from. More reasons why LEDgen Lighting LEDs are the better choice for seasonal and decorative lighting:

Cassandra's review- As a this is book 4, I would recommend reading them in order.  However should you not be able to this book can be read as a standalone.  The main character is growing up and getting closer to God. The story is kind of a tailspin with all sorts of different things going on that will have you sitting and reading without wanting to put the book down.

Date of Publication: September 8th, 2014

Cover Artist: Regina Wamba



Book Description:

Blue Brennan is jaded and bitter despite her pinup girl looks and quick wit. Night after night, she scours the Seattle club scene looking for someone or something to fill the emptiness inside.

When she meets the mysterious Kasey, her world stops… literally. He claims she has the ability to control time and stuns her even further when he reveals his own gifts.

Blue is inexplicably drawn to Kasey and reluctantly enters his world filled with a new breed of humanity. They’re misfits like her, blessed or cursed with powerful abilities, struggling to hide their differences from the rest of society.


Then the group discovers a nameless, faceless sociopath with nightmarish powers; and he’s coming for Blue. She’s left reeling when they discover her gifts are the key to defeating his terrible evil and saving them all.




Now she must race against the clock to harness her own powers and save her new friends. Can she be more than a renegade? Can she be a hero too?

Available at Amazon  BN  iTunes  
Excerpt

As I scanned the crowd my eyes fell on one person out of sync with the rest. Close to my age, maybe a little older, he obviously didn’t belong in the club. His clothes, messy looking slacks and a gray t-shirt, hung on his lean frame. He finished his look with a tartan scarf and brown fedora that seemed more at home on an old man than one in his twenties.

He pulled his hat off and shaggy brown hair fell across his eyes as he danced. Well, he didn’t dance so much as sway to the music, his eyes closed while a hint of a smile graced his lips. As he danced, he bobbed his head back and forth and his hands moved like graceful waves. His shadow grin seemed to infuse his entire body. He danced by himself as if he didn’t care what anyone around him thought, as if he danced for himself and no one else. He looked completely out of place, yet he appealed to me and I felt myself wanting to go to him.

I was shocked by the surge of jealousy that rushed through me as I stared at him. His face broke through my drunken haze and I realized this man was no paper doll. His face belonged to a truly happy man. Hell, he looked fucking ecstatic.

He had the face of an angel.




About the Author:



Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother.


Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider.


Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.


Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.

Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband.

If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.
