Speculation by E. Jorgenson – My Top Reads of 2012

Posted by on Jun 30, 2012 in Books, Giveaways & Contests, Indie Projects & Promotions, Novel Publicity, Reviews | 6 comments

Let me start by saying Speculation will probably be on my top 10 list at the end of this year, if not right at the top. I have gone back and re-read parts this week in preparation for this review for Novel Publicity Tours, though I really wanted to have a full in-depth read done with a pile of notes, a medical emergency prevented me from doing so. So based on my initial read of this book, of which I have a feeling even knowing how the question of will he chose what is in the envelope or the 10 million dollars I will read this many times in the years go come and follow this author forward in his career. Another great Novel Publicity find for me! Now my review!

From a Park Bench – Lynne Cantwell (Fourth-Wall Friday)

Posted by on Jun 29, 2012 in Authors, Books, Fourth-Wall Friday, Indie Projects & Promotions | 4 comments

Come sit next to me on my park bench here in the Mile High City of Denver, CO. I am eavesdropping on a conversation with Lynne Cantwell, author of the series The Pipe Woman Chronicles. It seems to just be getting interesting. Here (handing everyone a BLT) be stealthy make it look like we are having a bench picnic, I am betting this s going to be festive!

I should have been working, even though it was Sunday – lawyers pretty much don’t get
weekends off – but my best friend Shannon talked me into trying a new place at Belmar for
brunch. The food was only so-so, but the mimosas were stellar; still, I stopped at one, as I was
the designated driver.

After brunch, I had just dropped her off at her place in West Highland and was heading back to
my condo in Denver’s LoDo neighborhood when I felt a overwhelming urge to stop at Sloan’s
Lake.

I groaned aloud. “Are you serious? It’s January, for God’s sake.” But the compulsion doubled
down, and I groaned again. “I can’t wait for all this woo-woo stuff to go away,” I muttered, as I
made the left off Sheridan onto West Byron Place.

“It’s a legitimate question,” my sister insisted over the phone.

“Is not,” I shot back.

“Well….if you don’t know the answer…”

“Of course I know,” I snapped at her. “It’s just…does it really matter?”

“It does to me. Maya doesn’t eat human food; she feeds off human auras, so… does she poop or not?”

Posted by on Jun 27, 2012 in Authors, Books, Indie Projects & Promotions, Interviews & Interviews with Recipes | 2 comments

I totally lucked out again with my good friend Jessica over at Jess Resides Here pointing me in the right direction. I had read her own interview of David Nickle back at the beginning of May and she knew I wanted to read the book, so she sent me the contact info for the publisher, Chizine.

I am all over anything involving Russia. The stories, mysteries and all the intrigue.. and this one has a twist! remember through the end of the Cold War, loved Ian Fleming books when I was a kid plus as you all know I also love horror stories and cultural myths. After reading the title and subsequently the synopsis. all these things drew me in!  Sit back with your tea and enjoy! I think I hit a home run with this great interview! Thanks for stopping by!

Magic & Memories -Tricia Steward Shiu (‘Moa Book’ Tour plus Teaser Tuesdays)

Posted by on Jun 26, 2012 in Books, Giveaways & Contests, Indie Projects & Promotions, Novel Publicity, Teaser Tuesdays | 1 comment

When I read the interview I was thrown back to some of my own memories, when I choose my teaser from the book I decided to use the little 777 game floating around. Funny, I found the best teaser ever on location 777 of my Kindle copy. I love books involving magic and being a witch myself I have to dispel my own belief system to enjoy many more. This maybe one I won’t have to dispel much, enjoyed what I have been able to read so far. Also below is an interesting author interview if you are interested along with a nice big rafflecopter giveaway. I know this is the second posting I have done with a blog tour I am on, but that happens to be what I am usually reading!

Plus a hobbit who steals, Sam would be proud, they did not even make us stop for second breakfast, so they deserve Pie! I mean YES PIE!
