Just wanted to help spread the word about an ebook Freebie promotion and a contest that’s running over on Alex Owen’s site– she’s giving away a signed paperback copy (featuring the NEW cover) of Kill Me…
Good news, then great news… ok?
First, I had a few more promo free days available for Kill Me this month and I almost forgot to use them! So I set the novel free today (October 15, 2013) through Friday night at midnight. So, go on and snag your free copy of the ebook that has been called “wicked fun” and “not your daughter’s paranormal” while you can!
Free on Amazon Now!
Secondly, I’d really like to get the word out about the promotion, so I’ve decided to offer up a SIGNED paperback copy of Kill Me as well to one lucky winner. [The Rafflecopter widget won’t work on this site, so hop on over to her page to enter to win the Autographed book! ]
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fan-freaking-tabulous! I loved this book so much I wanna take it out for a drunken night on the town, then bring it home for hours of wicked debauchery.
Seriously though, it’s been a while since I’ve fallen so deeply into a book. The writing is out of this world, and the cast of characters so fleshed out I feel like I *know* these people. Complex, layered, witty. And so damn hot that I almost melted my ereader a few times.
Can’t wait ’till the next one! Seriously, Ms. Strong… write faster please!

Like an idiot, I accepted this ARC (via NetGalley) even though I haven’t read any of the other books. Because of that, this book took me a while to get into since I couldn’t keep the cast of characters or their importance straight in my head.
Other than my hubris, I did find that I really liked this novel. The world-building is great, the writing was sound and I do plan on going back and starting the series from the beginning.
The steamy-goodness at the story is, uh, nice 🙂 but it’s in limited quantities, so don’t read this thinking it’s going to be chock-full of romance.
Like others have mentioned, I did question the motives at times (give up my cell phone without a fight– no way!) but it wasn’t enough to detract from the story.
If you’re not a huge fan of cliffhangers, be prepared to be annoyed though. While I understand the purpose they serve– to move the reader on to the next book– I don’t like it when I’m finished with a book, but it doesn’t feel finished. If the story is mostly wrapped up, the cast gets to take a breath, and then is hit with another problem to carry over to the next book, that’s one thing. But, if it’s “WHAM! BAM! Over!” where the book essentially ends during the action it’s more frustrating in my opinion.
Still, I’ll go back and start the series from book One. Maybe by the time I’m done the next book will be out!
More than thirty horror authors are coming together this Halloween to offer book lovers a bewitching deal on almost fifty witch-themed ebooks on October 30, 31, & November 1, 2012.
Bargain hunting readers will find that a spell has been cast, magically lowering sale prices, which will range from free to $2.99 with the majority of ebooks being sold for 99 cents. The complete list of participating authors and their books featuring witches, warlocks, and other seasonally appropriate creatures is available at WitchyEbooks.Blogspot.com and includes links to the ebooks on retail sites.
Although their books share a similar witchy theme, the cauldron-stirring group of authors has approached the subject many different ways, from frightening to fun and from historical to hysterical. Some authors crossed genres, mixing romantic comedy with their witchcraft while others stuck to traditional hard core horror featuring evil witches. Assorted demons, vampires, ghosts, and zombies appear in various books as well.
The promotional idea originated with author E. L. Sarnoff who was looking for a way to work with other authors to cross-promote witch-themed novels and short stories during the month of October. Other writers immediately responded with enthusiasm and ideas including Vera Nazarian who summed up what many in the group felt when she said, “We are gonna rock Halloween!”
Author Alex Owens offered the use of her blog address, WitchyEbooks.Blogspot.com, which thanks to the fact that she gets “goose-pimply with excitement over anything and everything paranormal” she had already dedicated to “featuring all the Fantabulously Freaky witch books” that she could find. Writer Cate Dean took the lead in compiling all the evolving information on each author’s books including, title, link, blurb, and sale price.
So what are you waiting for?
Head on over to WitchyEbooks and fill your Cackling-and-broom-riding-quota and then some!

This book was not what I expected. It took me for a ride and then some, and I loved every minute of it. The cast of characters felt “true” and complicated- like real people, which drew me into their story fairly quickly. And then the odd and magical started to happen.
I did not see any of the twists and turns coming, which made them all the more exciting. Brilliant plot, flawless, fast-paced writing and an ending that left me begging for more!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Mind Readers is about… you guessed it, a girl that can read minds. On the cusp of adulthood, the main character has become used to hiding her ability so that her and her grandmother don’t have to move again and start over. “Self-preservation first” is the motto. But motto’s can only get a girl so far…
Overall, a great paranormal tale with enough intrigue and twists to keep most adults happy despite the YA (read: PG-ness)and what seems like a promising start to a new series. I can’t wait to see what book two holds and how things will pan out after the ending of this first book. Read it!
