A Q&A with Laney Wylde, author of If She Were Blind

Do you remember when I featured an excerpt from Laney Wylde’s If She Were Blind a couple of weeks ago? Well, today I’m happy to be welcoming Laney back, this time to answer a few questions for us.

She’ll be talking about everything from some of the secrets hidden in her book to the genres that she most enjoys reading. She has some great things to say–especially about If She Were Blind–and I’m sure you’ll enjoy hearing from her.

But rather than me telling you about what she wants to say, how about we just jump right into things?

Book excerpt: If She Were Blind, by Laney Wylde

There was something in the summary of Laney Wylde’s If She Were Blind that instantly caught my attention. Maybe it was the idea of someone unknowingly trying to hire an assassin to target herself. Maybe it was promise of a tense mix of suspense and romance.

Then again, maybe it was the comparison to Veronica Mars. I do love that show, after all.

Regardless, something drew me in, and I couldn’t wait to read at least a little of this promising book. Today, we’re all lucky enough to check out an excerpt. Before we do, though, take a moment to enter Laney’s rafflecopter, where she’s giving away a Justice Always t-shirt.

Alright, ready?

Book excerpt: Go Home, Afton, by Brent Jones

Sometimes, all it takes to get hooked on a book is a short little excerpt. You read just a few sentences from one of the first chapters, and you’re left wanting to devour the entire book.

Today, I have exactly that sort of excerpt for you. This excerpt fromĀ Go Home, Afton, by Brent Jones, may be short, but it proves that the book deserves to be in the thriller genre. It’s tense, and hints strongly at what’s to come in the rest of the novel.

Before you check it out, though, take a moment to enter Brent’s rafflecopter, where he’s giving away ten ebook copies of Go Home, Afton.

Favourite five: Books I read for the first time in 2017

I talk about books a lot on this blog, and that isn’t likely to change any time soon. So why not kick off my new Favourite Five series with a book list?

According to Goodreads, I read 12 new books in 2017. Which doesn’t seem like very many, but they were well complemented by all of the books that I re-read. I don’t know about you, but re-reading books is something I simply can’t give up. There are some books that I love too much to only read once.

Today’s post, though, isn’t about those re-read books. As much as I love them, I’m always looking for new books to add to my read list. I’m happy to say that in 2017, I found quite a few that I’m likely to go back and re-read later on.

So here, in no particular order, are the five books I most enjoyed reading for the first time in 2017.
