Shock Of Night Tour Dates

  Happy Veterans Day,
For those of you living in the US you may be enjoying a holiday in commemoration of our military veterans. Maybe that gives you the chance to dive into Patrick Carr’s The Shock Of Night, which I hope you have received by now. My copy came yesterday, so I trust that others who requested a review copy have also received theirs. 
We can now set the dates for the tour. Because of the US Thanksgiving Day and possible related activities coming up in a couple weeks, I think it’s wise for us to set this tour for the first week in December. Consequently, those participating should post at least once (but hopefully more) during the period starting on Monday, December 7, and going through Wednesday, December 9. I’ll send out the opt in/out note the week before the tour.
Happy reading!

Blog Tour Book Offer?

Hi, All,

Book Offer. I’m happy to say we’re offering Patrick Carr‘s new book The Shock Of Night for our next tour. See book details below. You might also be interested in the novella that introduces the series, By Divine Right, which is free on Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0112WVVBQ

You can request a review copy of The Shock Of Night no later than Monday, October 26, 9:00 AM (Pacific time). Be sure to include your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please). As always, if you request a book, you are expected to post a review during the tour, and are encouraged to discuss the book or related subjects all three days.

Please consider posting your review at Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever readers hang out. Also link to it on Facebook, Twitter and other fine social media sites. 😉

And now the details:

51KWf1dZaQL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

Series: The Darkwater Saga (Book 1)

Paperback: 464 pages
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers (November 3, 2015)
When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dura is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.

Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it’s as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he’s been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that’s not supposed to exist.

Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he’s pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world–a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.

Remember, I’ll need your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please) by Monday, October 26 at 9:00 AM (Pacific time).
 
Look forward to hearing from you.

Dates of Tour for Storm Siren

91xtJXBo3AL._SL1500_CSFF’ers,

Happy spring. At last our “March” tour selection, Storm Siren by Mary Weber, arrived—last week, when the tour should have run. I learned the Friday before that the books had been back ordered, so that’s why they didn’t go out sooner. At any rate, we need to set new dates for the tour. With Easter approaching, it’s a little tricky. I’m thinking April 13-15 will be best. That should give those who are busy with spring break or Easter plans enough time to read the book without too much stress.

Please put that date on your calendar.

Book Offer – March Tour

Hi, All,

Book Offer. I’m hopped we’d have this tour set up so that we could run it this month, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. I’m happy to say, however, that we at last can offer Storm Siren, a book by a new author, Mary Christine Weber. See book details below.

You can request a review copy of Storm Siren no later than Tuesday, 9:00 AM (Pacific time). Be sure to include your name and mailing address (no post office box numbers, please). As always, if you request a book, you are expected to post a review during the tour, and are encouraged to discuss the book or related subjects all three days.

Please consider posting your review at Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever readers hang out. Also link to it on Facebook, Twitter and other fine social media sites. 😉

And now the details:

Genre: Young Adult fantasy
Series: The Storm Siren Trilogy (Book 1)
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (August, 2014)
Language: English
ISBN-10:  1401690351
ISBN-13: 978-1401690359


“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth—meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

“Weber builds a fascinating and believable fantasy world. Inventive and entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Readers will easily find themselves captivated. The breathtaking surprise ending is nothing short of horrific, promising even more dark and bizarre adventures to come in the Storm Siren trilogy.”–RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
