Death Whispers Review

So after a long break from reading/blogging/fun in general (worst decision ever), I finally finished Death Whispers by Tamara Rose Blodgett. And yes my friends, it was amazing. I don't usually go for books with male protags, but I lurved this one. It was definitely a fun read ... a little creepy (The kids have a thing for cemeteries), but fun. I don't want to give too much away, but it's basically about a group of kids who manifest powers after a government sanctioned vaccine. Their lives are pretty much determined for them depending on the talent they develop--Affinity for the dead, Empathy, Psychic Null, Pyrokenesis, etc. And as their talents become known, so does their potential for exploitation. Seriously, if our government could raise an army of zombies, what do you think they'd do with it?

But anyway, this was a meaty read at 9212 kindle locations. Mrs. Blodgett provided enough information to leave me satisfied, but held back just enough to leave me thirsting for more. And yep, I've already bought book #2, which should tell you just how much I enjoyed book #1.

So it goes without saying that I highly recommend Death Whispers. I just checked and it's still free on Amazon, so make sure to grab a copy while it lasts.

Also, the lovely Mrs. Blodgett is holding a contest right now for the name of Alex's love interest (nerdy kid in Death Series) as well as the title of the next book in the Savage Series. Winner gets a signed copy of Death Speaks and/or a copy of the third book in the Savage Series. How awesome is that? Check that out here---->

Missed you guys a ton. Update on the Shimmer Trilogy (Formerly The Faerie Tale Girl Series) coming soon.

Kimberly reads ...

Death Whispers by Tamara Rose Blodgett.

I keep having to stop because I'm still working on Triquetra, but so far, I'm really enjoying this book. I love the idea of teenagers manifesting superpowers and rebelling against the government. And get this, they actually sound like real teenage boys, complete with smart alecky comments. I'm cracking up at some of the dialogue. I'll have a full review as soon as I'm finished. But until then, Death Whispers is available here for $0.99.

Google Alert Madness

Check out this google alert I received Saturday:

phone sex » Blog Archive » sex: Shimmerspell: A Faerie Tale Girl ...
sex: Shimmerspell: A Faerie Tale Girl Novella, #1 (YA Paranormal / Urban Fantasy ). Posted on 23rd July 2011 in Uncategorized, XXX Love and Sex ...

I have to say that this is both funny and disturbing to me. Shimmerspell is a young adult novella with zero sex in it, so I have no earthy idea how it has become linked to a sex shop. I mean, what could it be? Does reading it inspire you to call a 900 number? Do you need to smoke a cigarette when it's over? I'd like to pretend that the person who posted my book on that site was just another satisfied reader, lol.

To my fellow writers, have you ever received anything strange like that from google alerts?

Author Interview

Tamara Rose Blodgett, the uber talented author of Death Whispers and A Pearl Savage, interviewed me for the Thursday Focus Interview segment of her blog. Let me just say her blog is really nice and she seems so at ease on it, whereas I royally suck at all things social. Why must I be so awkward? :/

Anyway, here's the linky:

Lore: A Faerie Tale Girl Prequel has been published.

Hopefully, it'll be live on Amazon sometime tomorrow. It's a short story, 3500 words/210 kindle locations. I have to tell you guys upfront that it will be priced at $.99 on Amazon. I know that sucks for a single short story, but Amazon won't let me go any lower.

Good News Alert: You can download the ebook in various formats for free if you get it from smashwords. Here's the link: I really hope you guys like Lauren's story. Here's the cover & blurb:

Long before Lauren escaped to the mortal realm and fell in love with Dermott, she was simply known as Lore, the daughter of Morgen Le Fae. This short tale covers the role she played in the betrayal and murder of the Lady of the Lake.

ETA: It's available on Amazon. That was fast. :)
