The Voice by Jennifer Anne Davis Book Blitz


Hello, y'all! Today we have featured this amazing book!! Check it out!


The Voice by Jennifer Anne Davi - This is a YA Contemporary novel - Publication date: January 29th, 2013
 
During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she’s not going crazy, because after what she’s experienced, that’s the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.

Unfortunately, rescue isn’t all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate’s house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works—until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she’s worked so hard to build.

Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn’t know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it’s the same voice that she turns to—a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.

Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage. 
 


 
 
And if you want more.. Here's an excerpt!!

The Voice

Chapter 1

Lying in the dark cabin, I tried not to think about the foul smell of body odor mixed with the stench of urine. I tried not to think about how hungry I was, or when I would eat again. About the plastic zip ties cutting into my wrists, or the spider crawling up my arm. I kept trying and failing. There was nothing to do but think.
Audrey? he spoke in my mind.
“Here,” I replied, still not understanding who or what the voice was, hoping I wasn’t going crazy. Though, after what I had been through, crazy wasn’t too far off. Instead, I focused on what the voice was saying. After weeks of being stuck here, he was the only thing keeping me grounded and giving me hope.
I need you to do something for me.
He sounded drained. “Are you okay?” I asked.
Scream.
“What?”
I need you to scream as loud as you can. Now, Audrey! Scream!
Bill had left the cabin only five minutes earlier, and I was afraid to make any noise. What if he was still outside and heard me? Would he come back in? I was so sore and bruised that I couldn’t handle anymore.
Scream! he urged.
Finally trusting the voice, I sucked in a deep breath, closed my eyes, and screamed as loud as I could. At first I sounded like a cat that was being strangled, the sound barely audible and grating on my ears. But I kept trying, and the noise transformed into something loud and fierce.
Yell the word “help.”
“HELP!” My throat was raw, but that didn’t stop me. I took all of my hurt and anger, and used those emotions for the energy needed to sustain the scream.
Then a thumping came from the other room—maybe the front door. My body shuddered. Shimmying to the edge of the mattress, I tried to stand, but my legs gave out, and I fell to the rough, wooden floor, landing on my knees. With bound hands, I inched my way to the corner of the room, as far away from the door as possible.
Keep screaming!
I wanted to curl into a ball and disappear, but I did what the voice said and let out a shrill, loud cry for help. The sound bounced off the walls, echoing.
Wood shattered in the other room. I kept yelling, wishing that I had the power to destroy Bill with my scream.
The doorknob twisted. Please don’t hurt me again . . . please don’t touch me . . . no more, please. No more.
The door exploded open. Instead of Bill, there stood three hunters dressed in camouflage and bright orange vests. One held a shotgun, and another held an axe. I froze in horror. The men looked at one another and then back at me.
Audrey, tell them who you are. Your name.
“I’m Audrey Marshall. Please help me.”
“The kidnapped girl?” the older guy on the right asked. I nodded. “I’m calling 9-1-1. You’re going to be all right now,” he said reassuringly, his cell phone already at his ear.
“Thank you,” I whispered to the voice. But he didn’t respond.

Indies Forward: Celling Notebooks ~ Keep going.

indiesforward
Hello, my fellow readers.
This day is really special. Why? Because I'm going to open my heart to you. I'm going to tell you a story.

My father's mother was a great woman. My grandmother, named Zoila, came from a poor family. She liked to live with nothing else than the basic needs. And she was truly a giver. She used to lived in another city, 40 minutes away from where I live. Whenever she came to our home, she used to bring us all kind of things. Clothe, toys, fruits, little presents. And I always expected her with arms wide-open. She really was a beautiful woman.

On December of 2002. Me and my family were buying Christmas Presents. We were buying them a little early, and suddenly, my dad got a phone call. My grandmother had a stroke. She was at the ICU.

We run to the hospital, my father, who's a doctor, immediately started to check on her and ask for her state. She had almost none probabilities of living.

She was in a coma for a week or so. Then she miraculously woke up. But she couldn't speak, she couldn't even move. We were happy but at the same time sad.
Therapy begun. Lots of hours in the hospital. My mom and my dad taking shifts taking care of her. And even my aunts, who are living in Italy came over to visit her for a month.

After New Year, my grandmother was able to come home with us. We prepare her a special room, we took care of her and she started speaking and even to move a little bit, but she couldn't walk. All January of 2003 we talked a lot, we laugh, we watched TV. She enjoyed old movies. I don't like them but I saw them because of her. I had a great time with her. I was so happy because she was recovering so fast, and I hugged her every night before go to sleep.

Last day of January, I came from school at midnoon, I ate with her, and she called me. We started to talk and she told me really nice things. She told me to take care of my mom, to be a good girl always. She looked really healthy. In the night, it was passed 11 o'clock when my mom called my father really worried. My grandma was barely breathing. My mom and dad quickly took my grandma to the car to take her to the hospital. I was beside them all the time. And when they put my grandma into the car, we hold one last look.

That last look...

She looked at me saying goodbye. She looked at me saying that she loved me. And I.. I just couldn't told her that I loved her. I wanted to grab her hand but my mom closed the door of the car.

When they left, I went to my bed to cry.

My mom called us at 1:30 a.m of February 1st, telling me and my brothers that my grandma had passed away.

I was devastated. I was only 12 years old. I wanted her to be on my 16th birthday. I wanted her to be with me, laughing and saying bad words in other languages. I wanted to hugged her again.

Tomorrow it's the 10th anniversary of her death. I always keep her in my mind. Sometimes I still want to talk to her, to hug her, to laugh with her, to watch old movies even when I don't like them. I really would want she could see my brother's first child that's about to born next week.

I guess God has always something prepared to us. It's His way we follow.


It's hard to lose someone. It's hard and that pain, that hole in your soul, in your heart it's heavy.

Why am I telling you about this?  Because there's some people that struggles really hard. the way my grandma struggled to be with us at least a month, because it was a miracle she could even talk after the stroke and been in a coma after a week. She left the best thing she could have with me:  Memories. All those beautiful memories will remain in my heart, in my mind always.

The way Julie Forward DeMay fought with her cancer is truly an inspiration of life. She wrote a book named Cell War Notebooks where are her memories. It's a compilation of Julie’s blog posts from the last seven months of her life as she battled cervical cancer with hope, bravery, and a great sense of humor.

Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor son, Trey Chapman.

No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.

A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.
