Three Seeds ~ by Gabriel Madison

An unnatural cold front grows each day, bewildering world leaders and scientists, while leaving people across the world in a state of panic. All of North America is covered in snow. Earth is slowly reverting into a frozen oasis, causing religious groups to scream of the end of days, while others believe it’s the beginning of a new and foretold era.

About: Rosemary Anderson finds herself working as a receptionist, living on an old southern plantation and wishing for excitement. David, the man claiming to have rescued her from a car wreck three years earlier, has maneuvered himself into her life, but only shows up occasionally to ask Rose strange and cryptic questions about a past she no longer remembers.

Rose’s desire for adventure comes true, when strange men arrives at her plantation, and suddenly assails her. Rose narrowly escapes with the help of her mysterious friend David. David flees to Atlanta as he leads Rose through a hidden and treacherous world filled with death, power, secrets and passion. While trying to protect her from immortals shrouded by shadows, an ancient secret society and antediluvian beings from a forgotten time determined to either capture... or kill her.

Gabriel Madison’s Personal Bio:   I started writing when I was in high school, mostly short stories and poetry, and then developed a passion for screenplays. I attended a private art University in Atlanta Georgia for Media Production. There I studied script writing and film making. I wrote a few screenplays, and made a few short movies, including a twelve-minute vampire movie, I adapted from a short story, called Midnight Diner. After leaving school, my passion shifted mainly towards writing stories, than shooting and directing them. I write short stories, novellas, screenplays, graphic novels and full-length novels. I was once asked to define myself; the only answer I could come up with was storyteller. I now live back home in Albany Georgia. I love anything that has vampires in it, which is odd because my first book isn’t about vampires. Although, at first Rose was a vamp, but I changed it after my cousin got me into the TV show Carniv√†le. I started getting into secret societies and mythology and other paranormal stories. I decided to change the direction of Three Seeds from vamps, to beings that I came up with in my head.

As a new blogger how I got a copy of this book for review: 

When surfing around various blogs I came across a blog called Midnight Moon Cafe via Fantasy Dreamer’s blog. Both of which I highly recommend. I found that MMC was giving away a copy of this book  and I won! It is the second book that I have won from MMC.

When the author Gabriel Madison sent me an e-copy I  wrote him back to say I would send a link of my review when it was posted.  I am now giving you all a preview of the book and the author to intrigue you in his first book Three Seeds as well.

I have read the first several chapters and it is very promising, with an easy to follow writing style, a unique premise, and a gorgeous cover.

Review coming soon!

Excellent about the add....Gabriel will like this. :) I think there might be some biblical/mythological references in the book but am not sure... I have tried not read to much about it because I don't want any spoilers.
I have also been chatting to him about a possible give away after the review.
As for winnings....I have won loads of books....I have to do a big post. So the more you enter the more you win.
Yes - J. Kaye is great. Have you put your self on her referral list yet? If you have not you should. She's really a good spot for new book bloggers. I have not recently found anything that I want to read that she is giving away. So have not entered any in the last couple of months. But hey... next month who knows.
And you've won two from her site.... Wow!
My first win was from Amanda at The Zen Leaf.
Take care thanks for the comment!

Truly a different, if not strange, premise. That, of course, is why I'll end up reading it.

Charlie -
You and think alike in this respect. Perhaps you will win it in the give away that I am hoping for with Mr. Madison. :)

I am overwhelmed by your organization within your posts. Professionalism is something I now know I lack!

I do not have a full time job so that does not count for you! I really like your site, science, art, books what could be a better combo - and as my grand dad used to say "Rome was not built in a day" a cliche but true.
Thanks for your comment. :)
