The new boy claims to be the Archangel Gabriel cast from heaven, her best friend falls for the Antichrist, and come to find out Michelle’s mother has seen it coming all along. So instead of being consumed with prom and graduation, Michelle finds herself battling the evils of Hell in her small town. Can Michelle stop the powers of Hell in time? Can love bridge the world between heaven and earth? Michelle and Gabriel find themselves the pawns in a very dangerous game between an ancient power with a mysterious message and Satan himself.

Repost from

Rafflecopter and Kickstarter

Yesterday I posted about all of those sneaky extra costs that add up when you self publish. Today, I'm going to announce a rafflecopter contest and also ramble a bit about Kickstarter.  Bear with me =)

So, when I first realized that authors are using Kickstarter, I got excited. Then, I decided that it's kind of lame for a single person to raise funds for a book. There are big projects going on on Kickstarter, projects with lots of people that can't happen without lots of money. I wroteSemester Aboard without a Kickstarter campaign and, in spite of all those costs I talked about yesterday, I think I've done alright.

But, after a couple of weeks, I couldn't quite get it out of my head. I started thinking about what I could do, not just for me, but for Anchor Group Publishing as well. One of the things I love about AG is that we all help each other. We're like a little family. If one of the AG authors said, Elizabeth, buy a copy of your book and send it to me so I can take it to my library, I totally would. But imagine if I could just buy one of every AG book and do that myself! I want to be able to buy AG swag and give it away. I want to be able to design and buy banner ads for AG's page and for all of my fellow AG authors.

The problem is, that Kickstarter is for solo projects, not businesses. Neither Stacey (AG's owner/pres) nor I can start a campaign for Anchor Group. But I can do one for a single book. So, I did. I also noticed that, while there are a lot of books on Kickstarter, I have never seen any of the authors in my circles post about it. I hope that, if I succeed, AG and I will sort of pioneer the way for other indies.
Without further ado, here's the raffle. I want to note right now that: You do not in any way, shape, or form, have to contribute to Kickstarter to participate in the raffle. I amnot asking you to contribute to the campaign. This rafflecopter is just to help me spread the word and awareness about it. Thank you. a Rafflecopter giveaway

When Samantha Ricketts finds herself placed in a town half-way across the country, her only worry is how did she get there. But when her life is saved by a handsome and mysterious man, the connection they feel is almost more than she can stand. Zander Smith was only acting on his instincts and training when he moved the dark-haired woman to safety but what he got from his heroics wasn't the distressed woman he had thought he was helping but a fireball of fury that sparked a storm within himself. Together they tap into the supernatural to uncover the mysteries surrounding the strange town they were slowly growing fond of before they became part of its history.
You usually can't find that many "ghost" stories that have a great romance feeling in the book, but this book has that and I enjoyed it. VANNASMOM  |  9 reviewers made a similar statement

Author Bio: Katherine Polillo originally planned to grow-up and run away with the circus, but after realizing that she had a debilitating fear of heights that squashed her dreams of being a tight ropewalker, she instead pursued a career in education.  She currently teaches high school history and fabricates fictional stories in her free time.  She never really out grew her imaginary friends stage, and instead has created lives and stories for the creations of her imagination to live in.  When she is present in reality and not off on an adventure with her imaginary friends, she lives in a small, New Jersey town with her husband and their two spoiled rotten, ungrateful cats.
