Twelve Days of Christmas: Day Four

The Why:

I’ve decided that I wanted to do something nice for the authors that have given me paperback review copies or have let me edit their work. So, in the hopes of getting them some more exposure and reviews, I’ve come up with a “Twelve Days of Christmas” giveaway. Every day until Christmas, I’ll be giving one paperback that I’ve reviewed &/or worked on. I do ask that you consider reviewing the book that you win, as this can always help the author and future readers!

The Book:

Bedtime Stories for Dogs and Bedtime Stories for CatsToday’s book is Bedtime Stories for Cats & Bedtime Stories for Dogs. Containing short stories, poems, and essays, the tales set up as intended to be read to your pet. There are tales of horror, of adventure, and of joy to explain some of our pet’s behaviors. There are also tales that have a counterpart in the opposite section (a dog perspective and a cat perspective).

These cute, short stories are suitable for kids (and cats and dogs) of all ages. Check out my review and enter below.

Noah Zarc: Mammoth TroubleToday’s book is Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble by D. Robert Pease. This is one of the first books I reviewed on my site. Noah Zarc is about a twelve-year-old paraplegic boy who travels throughout space and time on a mission to repopulate Earth with animals from all suitable time periods. With his family – Mom, Dad, brother Hamilton and sister Sam – Noah pilots the ARC (Animal Rescue Cruiser) while trying to stop Haon from preventing the re-population of all the animals on Earth.

I was lucky enough to have Noah stop by for an interview. If you’re interested in finding out a little more about Noah, check it out.

I’d also like to note that the sequel, Noah Zarc: Cataclysm is now out! I have my review up for that book as well. Continue reading Twelve Days of Christmas: Day One

New Release: Christmas Lites II

Today’s new release is a very special one. Last year, a bunch of authors got together to help out the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, raising money for them via an anthology. They actually let me put one of my stories in there as well, which was awesome. So this year, when I heard they were doing it again, I begged and pleaded until asked that they let me in again!

So I’m proud to announce the release of Christmas Lites II! It’s a collection of stories like none other (except the first volume), full of Christmas spirit, elves, zombies, and cheer! If you are looking for a unique gift this holiday season, pick one up!

Blurb:

Join us this Christmas season as authors from across the globe unite to spread holiday cheer and raise money for a very important cause. You will delight in the various stories these authors have created in order to take you on a journey from inside their heads and into your heart. Fairy tales, mysteries, journeys with zombies and monsters, vampires, angels, trips to the North Pole and much more await inside the covers of this book. All proceeds from the book are being donated to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Not only will you get a taste of the spirit of the season, but you will do so knowing you did your part in helping a very worthy cause. Merry Christmas!

Blog Tour: Bewitched

Welcome one and all to my stop on the Bewitched Tour! This is perfect for the season, and author Cambria Hebert gave me a special post for you on one of her FAVORITE subjects — chickens!! Now, for those of you that know Cambria, you know that there was a lot of sarcasm in that statement. So, without further ado, I give to you…
