Book excerpt: Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies, by Addison Moore

Here’s the thing about Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies, by Addison Moore: I love the concept of it. I fell in love with it as soon as I read the summary. I mean, a woman who knows something ominous is going to happen because she sees dead pets? How can you not want to read a book about that?

At the very least, that little bit of a teaser should make you want to read today’s excerpt–which is great, by the way. Funny and intriguing all at once.

Cover reveal: The Forgotten Child, by Melissa Erin Jackson

What is it about children that take a horror or mystery novel and amp the creepy factor up an extra couple of notches? Seriously. Even the child on the cover of this one managed to unsettle me, and that was before I read the summary.

But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Or ahead of you, at least. It’s just that I couldn’t stop myself from sharing that little tidbit about the cover of Melissa Erin Jackson’s The Forgotten Child. You’ll understand why once you see it, I promise.

Book excerpt: Sneaking Out, by Chuck Vance

Sometimes, all it takes for me to be hooked by a novel is a single question. That’s it. One line, maybe ten words, and a question mark.

That’s exactly what happened when I read the summary for Sneaking Out, by Chuck Vance. That first line–which you’ll see in a moment–grabbed me and refused to let go. The excerpt I’m sharing today only helped strengthen that grip.

Give it a read for yourself, if you don’t believe me. Before you do, though, jump on over to Chuck’s Rafflecopter, where he’s giving away signed copies of Sneaking Out and $25 Amazon gift cards.

Book excerpt: Smothered, by M.C. Hall

I won’t lie: Sometimes I’m intrigued just as much by how a story is presented as I am by the story itself. There are just so many unique ways to craft a narrative, especially in today’s world. I love seeing what people come up with.

M.C. Hall’s Smothered quite clearly combines the best of both worlds: It has an intriguing plot and is told through a different, entirely modern method. Below you’ll find an excerpt from the novel, but first you should take a moment to enter Hall’s giveaway for a $20 Amazon gift card.

Alright, ready?

Book excerpt: Murder on the Lake of Fire, by Mikel J. Wilson

I love a good mystery. Mysteries and thrillers were some of the first adult-targeted books I remember reading, and I still find myself going back to them.

Mikel J. Wilson’s Murder on the Lake of Fire is exactly the type of mystery I tend to gravitate toward. Based on what I’ve seen of the novel so far, it has exactly what I’ve come to expect from books in the genre: a murder I can’t wait to figure out, hints of romance, and a main character I’ll enjoy reading. All in all, it seems like my kind of book.

Today, I’m quite happy to be sharing an excerpt with you. Plus, Mikel is giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. Go ahead and enter, then come on back to take a look at that excerpt.
