Forgive Me, Alex – (Teaser Tuesdays)

Posted by on Jul 16, 2012 in Authors, Books, Novel Publicity, Teaser Tuesdays | 4 comments

So this week has been a week of reading these WOWZA stories of really horribly dark murders, and this book I am reviewing for a Novel Publicity Tour and am really liking it. I do not want to go into my initial thoughts or descriptors, but the teaser this week is one I highlighted right at the beginning

Don’t call me Ishmael! – Musing Mondays

Posted by on Apr 2, 2012 in Books, Hero Worship, Musing Mondays, Reading | 6 comments

Musing Mondays {April 2}

Musing Mondays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be ReadingEach week MizB asks a book related question and bloggers answer with their thoughts about the given topic.

This week’s musing asks…

Do you belong to any book clubs — face-to-face, or online? If so, how long have you been with the group(s)? If not, why?

I do not belong to a book club online or otherwise. The only time I have belonged to one is the first One Book One Tweet #1b1t by Crowdsourcing Which is now over at the Atlantic and at twitter under @1book140. It was their first one, it was experimental and it died because of summer. I met a lot of great people all over the world, but it was really hard to keep straight plus I was trying to finish my spring semester to book. Also there was the  expression or critique or questions  in 140 characters or less. We all know I have a problem with that.

It was May 2011, the first book was American Gods by Neil Gaiman. The highlight of this frustrating approach, albeit  evocative, was when we got to have a live tweet session with @neilhimself

It is time for Teaser Tuesday!

Come back for a chance to with her book Days with the Undead! I will be opening up the contest so if you already answered, you can come back and enter again! Oh man you so cannot be that! I just love y’all that much people!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading (she also hosts some other great memes) . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Before I throw my teaser out there I may want to explain myself a bit. I am a ferocious and bizarre reader. I am classically trained in Medieval Literature, I am an avid sci-fi reader,

WWW Wednesday {March 14}

Posted by on Mar 14, 2012 in Authors, Books | 5 comments

Hosted by the glorious MzB over @ Should Be Reading

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? I just started Angelkiller by H. David Blalock. It was a book that I was asked to review for Seventh Star Press (they publish Speculative Fiction). It is something that I have not read a lot of lately, the style and depth of writing. I am really enjoying the epic feeling to such a short book! Looking forward to finishing today, hopefully!
