Happy Book Birthday to MAKE BELIEVE!

Today we get to welcome Make Believe into the world of published books! It's an anthology of paranormal romance and fantasy stories inspired by the beautiful image on the cover. One of my favourite stories inside is Birthright, written by one of my blogging buddies, Lynda R. Young. Yay! Exciting! This book will make great holiday reading (my review is here) so be sure to pop it into someone's virtual Christmas stocking ;-)

Birthright by Lynda R. Young  
Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is impossible. She’s tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize her even though she's never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her. Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there’s something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else wants her to leave, and they won’t stop until she’s dead. 

Blurbs from all the stories included in Make Believe can be found on the J. Taylor Publishing website HERE. 

Buy the book: 
Amazon | BooksOnBoard

I really love the cover =)The red bow on the back of the dress is super cute (I love dresses and fashion).

Also, I can't recall if you've already been tagged, but I am tagging you for "The Next Big Thing" (week 28). Now, you would be posting on the 12th (which I know is like just before your wedding) so no worries if you can't. Just know I love your blog and mentioned you :) If you end up having time to do it I have included the questions in this comment. If you have been tagged previously, maybe you can discuss a different project.

Refer here for my example:

The 10 Questions are:
1- What is the working title of your book?
2- Where did the idea come from for the book?
3- What genre does your book fall under?
4- Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
5- What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
6- Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? (Feel free to add a link)
7- How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
8- What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
9- Who or What inspired you to write this book?
10- What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?

Rachel! I've finished catching up on all your posts. I've missed a lot and sad that I have, but there's no fixing it now.

I saw MAKE BELIEVE on another blog recently as well. I like the concept behind the stories.
