Today I have something Extra Special. This month I adopted an Author. Yes, I know they are adults and don’t need to be adopted, yet I did so anyway! I feel we are never too old for a bit of love from others.  So today I am sending out all my love to Taylor Lakke! The author of "A Heart for the Ocean". And along with my love I am encouraging every single one of my followers to enter the giveaway below and possibly win a swag pack custom made by me, or one of the luscious goodies Taylor has arranged especially for this giveaway! So while I’m giving her MY love you all are the recipients of that love in the rewards you can win! How cool is that?
Madison McKinsey is a normal fifteen year old girl who attends a normal high school in Winter Haven, Florida. Her normal job is to deliver newspapers to the normal people in her town, but one day she reaches in for a newspaper and everything changes when she encounters a mystical phenomenon. She travels through time to a place that normal humans don’t know about. She meets Landon Cayne, an older boy who takes her on adventures in the strange seas of this world. She helps him in his quest. It doesn’t take long for Madison to see that Landon is different. He makes her soul sing. She can’t help but feel that she is destined to be with this not-so-normal boy, in this not-so-normal world.

A little about Taylor Lakke

I was raised in the South but have lived in many places around the United States. Reading is my favorite hobby and has been since I was a little girl. I just started writing and am finding pure joy; it is something I was born to do. I love the ocean: swimming, snorkeling, sailing and boating. Travel is another passion I have. When I write I like to chew gum and wear a baseball cap. By day I am a Facility Director in Healthcare and in the wee hours of the night I am living my dream of writing books.
