Defragmenting Daniel Review Tour

Blurb:
7 stolen organs.
1 vengeful victim.
A gruesome sci-fi thriller.

Organ scrubbing was a bloody job, but somebody had to do it. Daniel, an orphan from the Gutter, was put to work scrubbing kidneys at aged twelve. The job had its perks: a warm bed, Law and Order reruns, and an all-you-can-eat Mopane worm buffet.

Until the Orphanage stole Daniel’s parts, and sold them on the organ market.

Now Daniel has grown up, and yearns to become whole again. The cybernetic organ replacements just aren’t the same – he needs his parts back. But the new owners of his organs won’t give them up. Not without a fight.

Just how far will Daniel go to regain his missing pieces? And how much more of himself will he lose along the way?

Defragmenting Daniel is a cyberpunk crime thriller that will unnerve you. Every part of you.

“A work of great imagination. Powerful and gripping.”
“A stark and moving experience.”
– ReadersFavorite.com, 5 Star Review


Excerpt:
“You feel that, son?”

“No siw,” Daniel mouthed. His tongue was numb. Had been numb since they’d replaced it with the generic a year ago, but it felt more swollen than usual. Clumsy against his palate.

“That’s good. Try to relax.” The surgeon’s voice was deep and quick. Like a scythe. “Music, nurse.”

With Daniel’s head turned the way it was, he looked directly into the surgeon’s crotch. He tried to turn away, but his head had been immobilized.

A beat Daniel remembered from somewhere rolled through the operating theatre. The bass vibrated along the legs of the steel table, up, into the brace that pierced his skull, down, through its metallic fingers, and into his brain. It tickled.

The surgeon shifted. A nurse’s masked face replaced the crotch. “Don’t move.” Only her eyes showed above the mask. The doctors and nurses all looked the same with their masks on. How do they tell one another apart?

A grainy woman’s voice hissed through the beat.

We had you cleaned

We had you eat

The high-pitched whine of a bone saw echoed in Daniel’s skull. “We’ll have you open in no time,” said the surgeon.

Daniel felt pressure against his temple, above his right ear. The whine of the blade morphed to a lower, choppy grind.

We had you bathed

We had your feet

Yes, he remembered the song now. It was all the rage in the cafeteria on Friday nights, when they cleared the chairs to make room for an ad hoc dance floor.

“How the kids?”

“Good, thanks doctor. Jordan’s starting school next week.”

“Already?”

Daniel tried to swallow, but lying on his back with his head fixed at this angle, most of the saliva dribbled onto the operating table.

We ate your lungs

We heart your beat

The bone saw slowed to a toothy stop.

There was a hollow metal twang, as something red dropped into a metal bowl on the edge of Daniel’s vision.

“You doing okay there, boy?”

“Yeth, ma’am.”

The surgeon bent down. Peered into Daniel’s eyes.

“We’re in. Won’t be too much longer now.”



My Review:
3 stars


I want to start by saying that I've read and enjoyed several of Jason Werbeloff's books before, and that the writing in this is just as great as his other novels. However, my main reason for the lower rating is because of the gore. Now while I'm not a fan of overly done gore (I'm talking to you Tarantino), I can still usually stomach it. After all, I love cop and forensic science procedurals. Heck, I love the show Supernatural, which gets way too gory at times. However, this was just too much for me. I think the main reason is due to Werbeloff's writing style. He is very good at providing vivid, realistic descriptions which draw readers into the worlds he creates. While this has worked well for me when reading his previous books, it didn't here. It was just too much, and I found myself skipping parts of the story because I didn't want to read them. So that hampered my enjoyment, but that's entirely on me.

The story is well written and exciting, with excellent world-building. If there is one thing Werbeloff does the best, it's his world-building. It was kind of scary even because I could totally see this happening. I will admit, at first I was confused by why people would want to use organs taken from other donors if you could just have artificial organs which were more likely to be healthier, but as I read on, this world made more sense to me. And part of his great world-building is interesting characters such as Daniel. Seeing how Daniel changed from the beginning of the book to the end is what kept me reading. His scenes with Odin were oddly touching, which was weird at times, but helped capture his character (you'll understand why this is sometimes weird if you read the book). 

On a side note, as the title suggests, this is part 1 of 3, so the book does have a cliffhanger-ish, to be continued ending. 

Overall, while this is an interesting, well-written, and exciting story, it just wasn't for me. I'm faced with conflicting emotions because while I want to know how this series ends, at the same, I don't want to continue reading the series. This book is not going to be for everyone. If you can't handle squicky situations, this is not the book for you and I recommend trying some of Jason's other books (I personally enjoyed Obsidian Worlds, as you can see from my review). But if you have a stomach of steel and laugh at gory situations, then give this book a try, because it is worth it.

Northwoods Wolfman Review Tour

Blurb:
When Dallas, the self-proclaimed Hero of Trappersville, is recruited by an ancient order of monster hunters, he’s more than happy to sign up. The group’s leader, Colton, is solid as an oak. Randall ain’t half bad, despite his tendency to whine. The whip-smart, beautiful, and totally badass Aletia is whip-smart, beautiful, and totally badass. Under their guidance, Dallas learns everything there is to know about hunting monsters (or close enough) and pledges to keep his friends safe.

Now there’s a werewolf in town, and Dallas and Stanley are on the case. As far as Dallas is concerned, monsters are monsters, and they have no place in Wisconsin.

Or do they? When an unexpected discovery and an unlikely reunion turn his world upside down, Dallas realizes he may not get to choose which side he’s on.


Excerpt:
Randall had whistled through his teeth when Dallas answered the door.

“You look like Batman and Tim the Tool Guy’s D.I.Y. lovechild,” he chuckled. “What are you planning to do with all that stuff?”

The look Dallas gave Randall was sympathetic.

“I know you been doing this for a little while, but I can see why Colton’s looking for new help. You gotta be prepared, right? Covert ops? Surgical strike? Get in, get out, get drunk, get laid, that’s how Big D rolls. You think I’m diving into a nest of, a nest of, um. You know, a nest of… Say, what are we hunting, anyway?”
“Boo hag.”

“Gesundheit.”

“No, we’re hunting a boo hag.”

“Doo rag?”

“No, boo hag, you twit. Kinda like a vampire, but they eat life force from breath, not blood. Sometimes mistaken for skin walkers since they don’t have skin of their own and are fond of taking someone else’s to wear for a bit.”

Dallas nodded authoritatively. “Well, that just proves my point. You think I’m diving into a nest of boo hags with nothing but my sunny disposition?”


My Review:
I didn’t realize when I first started this book that it’s a sequel, so that influenced my opinions of this book. While I still was able to enjoy the book, I think I would have gotten more out of it had I read book 1, Wisconsin Vamp first, so I would recommend reading that book before reading Northwoods Wolfman.

The best part of this book was Scott’s writing, especially his sense of humor. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout the book. Even when I didn’t always understand what was happening (which probably wouldn’t have happened as much if I’d read book 1), I wanted to keep reading to see what zany thing would happen or what piece of pure comedic gold would come out of a character’s mouth next.

The characters, while a bit confusing and odd at times, were absolute gems and fun to read about. I can’t even pick a favorite because I liked all the characters. I didn’t even really dislike any of them, a rarity in a book with a good number of characters.

All in all, this is an absolutely fun read, and I will definitely not only go back and read book 1, but am not eagerly looking forward to reading more books in this series as this a fun, monster-filled romp.

Sword of Shadows VBT

Blurb:
Sisters in magic, Eolyn and Adiana seek to revive a millennial tradition once forbidden to women. When war strikes, their fledgling community of magas is destroyed; its members killed, captured or scattered.

Determined to defend her people, Eolyn seeks to escape the occupied province and deliver to King Akmael a weapon that might secure their victory. Trapped by the invading army, Adiana is taken prisoner and placed at the mercy of the ruthless Prince Mechnes.

Even as their world is torn asunder, Eolyn and Adiana cling to a common dream. Courage and perseverance guide them toward a future where the Daughters of Aithne will flourish in a world set free from the violence of men.

"War propels the story forward, and the characters are at their best when circumstances are at their worst." -Publishers Weekly

This is the second book in THE SILVER WEB trilogy. It can be read as a stand-alone novel, or as the sequel to the first book, EOLYN.


Excerpt:
A hush of wings on the windowsill interrupted Eolyn’s thoughts. She looked up to see a Great River Owl, its proud silhouette outlined by moonlight.

Eolyn rose to her feet in surprise, keenly aware of its penetrating gaze, though she could not see its round eyes in the dark. A breeze ruffled its feathers. Its aura was impossibly familiar: intense shades of gold, burgundy, and forest green, shot through with streaks of deepest indigo.

She held her breath and let it go in a whisper. “Akmael?”

More than a question, it was a hope, a fear, an invocation.

A shimmer passed through the owl, followed by a flash of white light. Suddenly Akmael was with her, the heat of his hand upon her throat, the strength of his fingers intertwining in her hair, the demand of his lips upon hers, warm and full of passion. The magic of the South Woods blew through the window in a humid gust, swirling about them, begging Eolyn to remember who she was and what she once meant to him.

Akmael kissed Eolyn until she had no more breath to give. Then he paused and held her close, their foreheads touching as her fingers traced the familiar prominence of his cheekbone, the line of his jaw, the curve of his full lips.

All she could hear was his desire, carried on the rhythm of his heart. She dared not speak, for if she did, she might stumble upon words of caution or prudence or common sense, and none of that had any place here. Not when he was so near, nearer than he had been in such a painfully long time, closer than he might ever be again.

This is a gift from the Gods, Akmael had once said. To deny it would be an insult to them.

“Eolyn, I—”

She hushed him with a kiss.





Why Query?

It’s been only five years since the first edition of Eolyn was released by Hadley Rille Books in May of 2011. At that time, ebooks and self-publishing were just getting off the ground. Both were viewed with trepidation, even suspicion. But Amazon opened its arms wide to the coming wave, giving self-published authors a ready home to realize their dreams. Ever since, Amazon’s bright cartoon eyes have been going k’ching k’ching as its e-coffers fill with money.

A lot has changed since 2011. Ebooks are now part and parcel of any novel release, and numerous presses and imprints have sprung up to dedicate themselves exclusively to digital editions. Self-published books have flooded the market, making it easy for readers to find a large variety of stories cheap or free. At the same time, market saturation has driven down the monetary value of the blood, sweat, and tears all authors dedicate to their craft.

Many acknowledge that self-publishing is more respected than it used to be – which, to be fair, is not really saying much. But still, a large cadre of innovative authors have made their mark in self-publishing, proving that success doesn’t necessarily depend on landing a traditional press.

Which begs the question: Why bother querying at all?

As I mentioned up front, the first edition of Eolyn was published in 2011 through the traditional route. I sent out queries, synopses, and excerpts, and suffered my share of rejections, before Hadley Rille Books, a small press specializing in genre fiction, picked it up and offered me a contract. I published two novels with Hadley Rille before deciding, in the spring of 2015, that it was time to strike out on my own.

Now, The Silver Web trilogy, including Eolyn, Sword of Shadows, and Daughter of Aithne, is being released as a self-published work.  At the same time, I’ve started querying for another novel series, Path of Souls, with sincere hopes of finding a traditional press for my new project.

Having walked the road of both traditional and self-publishing, I can speak to both experiences and give you some ideas as to the advantages and disadvantages of both. I can say with confidence that no one has to cling to just one path to publication. In fact, the more I look at the fast-paced change of today’s publishing world, the more I believe we shouldn’t cling to just one path.

It’s also become clear to me that self-published authors cannot lay exclusive claim to the term “independent author.” In my mind, all authors are independent. Each author determines the best publishing route for each of her novels, and exercises freedom by using all the options available.

For those trying to determine which path to publication would best suit their current manuscript. I’ve set up a little quiz that I hope will help you evaluate whether you’re ready to dive into self-publishing, or whether maybe, just maybe, you should query first. This isn’t a comprehensive decision-making tool, but hopefully it will shed some light on what might be the best path for you.

The quiz consists of just three questions:

1. Is this your first novel?
YES – Query first, because let’s be frank: You have no clue what you’re getting into. Publishing is a shit load of work, and the learning curve is steep. At this stage in your career, you will benefit enormously by collaborating with publishing professionals who are invested in your success and capable of giving you all the support you need to edit, launch, and market your new baby. If you can find a press ready to offer a home for your book, DO IT. I highly recommend small, independent presses that can give you personalized attention and involve you directly in the publishing process. BUT, beware of vanity presses and the like. Anyone who charges you up front to publish your work is not a legitimate press. Do your homework, and don’t sign a contract unless you’re absolutely certain that press can provide a quality experience for you and your first novel.
NO – If you have some publishing experience under your belt, and you’re chomping at the bit for more autonomy, self-publishing may be the road for you. See additional questions below.

2. Do you have a lot of cash on hand?
YES – Lucky you! Get ready to throw it all away. Your budget will include professional line editing, professional copy editing, cover art and design, marketing, formatting, and other related expenses (including ISBN numbers, if you do a print edition). The cost of self-publishing a single novel, in ebook and paperback, can run into thousands of dollars, depending on the choices you make. Higher quality products require a larger investment. And you don’t want to risk putting something shoddy out on the market, because readers who pick it up will never look at another novel by you again if they have to suffer through typos, poor formatting, clich├ęd story lines, and the like. Most importantly: Do not count on making any of that cash back. Ebook and other sales will generally not compensate for your initial investment. The market is saturated and it is extremely difficult to get one’s book into the hands of more than a few readers. The good news is that as you put more books out there, you’re likely to attract more readers. So each subsequent novel should require a little less investment, and the more novels you have on the market, the greater your returns.

NO – Query first. A quality press can and will absorb the set-up costs for publishing your book. They can also provide the marketing muscle to get your novel into the hands of enough readers to at least have a chance at going viral. With a good enough story and little bit of luck, you may even get a modest advance.

3. Are you a control freak?
YES – Consider self-publishing. I, for one, have thoroughly enjoyed having full control over every aspect of publishing The Silver Web (despite the shit load of work and the exorbitant expense). When I decided to self-publish, it was in part because I had a very clear idea of exactly what I wanted to do with my novels, how I wanted to roll them out onto the market. I had identified the perfect cover artist, and I envisioned a very tight time line for editing, formatting, and release of all three novels. Maybe a strong marketing team from an established press would have done a better job than I, but in my heart of hearts, I wanted complete ownership over this project. I wanted to do things my way, and to this day, I’m glad I did.

NO – Query first. Give yourself a chance at finding a press that can free you from some of the more onerous tasks of publishing. The fact of the matter is, the more control you have over a project, the less control you have over your time. And time is a precious commodity, especially for writers. I have no regrets about self-publishing The Silver Web, but for my next project, I’m ready to set aside my publisher’s hat and surrender some control. Partly because I want more time to write. But another important consideration is that my next series will likely appeal to a somewhat different market than The Silver Web. A traditional publisher with a good track record could help me reach out to new audiences. And I’m hungry to work with an experienced editor and a proper marketing team. So I’m buckling down to query again.

If I get an offer I like, I will sign that contract.

Because as an independent author, that’s my choice.

Sinners & Saints: A Patriot's Manifest Book Blast

Blurb:
My name is Zoey Major and I live in Fort Star, New Jersey. I am also a survivor in the zombie apocalypse. Seems very cut and dry but I have been hiding something- like really huge. My secret is game changing. I am not like the others... I know, what a surprise twist! Unfortunately, I can’t tell you why I am different. If you really want to know, you have to figure it out. Hey, even in these dark times, a girl needs her secrets.


Excerpt:
United we... united we... we were supposed to stand together as a society but it did not work out like that. The United States and much of the world, actually went to sh*t for a little bit when the zombies came. Perhaps the only saving grace was the fact that man learns to adapt. We always do. A prime example would be the invention of the wheel, the television or even a toaster pastry because why the f*ck not eat something bad for you?

For you see, if man has a want or desire, it may take years, but he'll invent it. One thing I am still waiting on is that damn time machine. I am looking at you, Doc Brown. Ha! However, not all inventions should ever leave the paper. Sometimes an idea is just an idea as biological weapons rarely ever make anything better. Yeah, perhaps not every weapon should be tested or even used, as the results can't always be contained. United we... united we... we were supposed to stand together.

Present Day, June 30, 10:25 pm
Catey: "So is it cool that I sign you up for speed dating?"
Zoey: "What? No, f*ck no."
Catey: "Why not?"
Zoey: "There should be no speed dating in the zombie apocalypse."
Catey: "It's post apocalypse so get it right."
Zoey: "For now."
Catey: "And this is why you are single. You are so negative."
Zoey: "Huh, I didn't know that was the reason. I just thought it was because every eligible bachelor who isn't a toad has been either taken or eaten but hey, maybe I am wrong."
Catey: "I think it's because you put up a wall."
Zoey: "Stop analyzing me, or at the very least give me a Rorschach test or at the very least a crossword puzzle to pass the time then."



My Review:
3 stars

I had a hard time reviewing this book. On the one hand, it is very unique and an interesting storyline. On the other, there were some serious flaws that kept me from enjoying the story as much. To start with, this is unique in that the book is written as a mix of a play and a diary entry. This made for some interesting reading, and definitely kept me on my toes. I don’t mind reading a play/diary entry as long as it works, and the author does make it work. However, this format also hurts the story. Even though Zoey is the narrator and it’s her diary, I didn’t really get a great feel for her as a character and had difficulty connecting with her, something I thought would have been easier to do since these are her diary entries. Plus, the format did take a bit to get used to. I adjusted fairly quickly first because I’ve participated in several plays and because I read the most recent Harry Potter book, so it wasn’t too bad for me, but this could definitely throw some people off.

As for the plot, it was definitely a different take on the typical zombie novel, which I appreciated. Plus I loved the quirky writing style. It worked well with the story and helped keep the story moving and keeping me captivated. However, even on the writing I felt conflicted. Because while there were quirky and fun moments, there were also moments where the writing was awkward or there were grammar mistakes that took me out of the story. So again, I feel conflicted by this. All in all though, I enjoyed this book, even with its flaws. I could definitely see how this is a YA novel, and I think I might have appreciated it more if I had first read this in middle school, since I would probably have had an easier time of connecting with Zoey. If you can get past the format, I do recommend trying this book because it is unique and fun and I would love to see more stories like this.

The Christmas Cookie Shop Book Blast

Blurb:
Come home this Christmas to…

CHRISTMAS TOWN, TENNESSEE

Where everyday dreams come true!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird brings you the start of a brand new holiday series…

THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE SHOP
(Christmas Town, Book 1)

Hannah Winchester is down on her luck and disillusioned with love, but her fortunes are about to change. When Hannah inherits a defunct bakery in East Tennessee, her first thought is to sell it and settle her substantial debt. Then the townsfolk welcome her warmly and she’s taken with the joyful spirit of the place, where stores employ holiday themes and residents have surnames like Christmas and Claus. After a handsome lawman comes to her aid dressed as Santa, Hannah learns he’s more than a hot guy in a red suit and shiny black boots. Sheriff Carter Livingston has joined in the cause of rejuvenating the town, and he’s encouraging her to do her part. Hannah’s great-grandmother, Lena, sold special holiday cookies that brought hope and renewal to the people of Christmas Town. Yet Hannah has plans elsewhere and isn’t looking to stay. Can she possibly reopen the shop known for kindling romance—without sacrificing her heart?


Excerpt:
The last turn she took was supposed to lead straight to the town roundabout, the one that connected with South Main Street. Hannah had been told to watch for a flagpole, the courthouse, a library, and a big town sign. But all she saw ahead of her in these near-whiteout conditions was more snow! That’s when a flashing blue glimmer in her driver’s side mirror caught her eye. Thank goodness! Help has arrived. It had to be a cop figuring her for a distressed motorist. Hannah certainly couldn’t get any more distressed than this.

Hannah hadn’t journeyed to Tennessee for a leisurely visit. She’d inherited a business she knew absolutely nothing about, and she was determined to sell it at the first opportunity. She tried to imagine herself running a cookie shop, but just couldn’t. The only picture that came to mind involved huge plumes of black smoke curling out an open doorway. Where some people had a brown thumb in the garden, Hannah wore a charred oven mitt in the kitchen. She couldn’t even microwave popcorn without the bag catching fire.

Hannah spun in her seat to better view the approaching figure in dark clothing. No, wait. It’s a matching red tunic and slacks worn beneath an open field coat. The full silhouette of a man emerged from a snowy swirl and Hannah’s heart thumped. It wasn’t just any outfit; it was a Santa suit. Though she’d never seen Old Saint Nick looking quite like that. Rather than being short and stout, he was tall and built, with an obviously solid chest and a manly jaw thinly disguised by a fake white beard. A Santa hat sat slightly askew on his head, partially covering short brown hair. He strode to her driver’s side window in shiny black boots and tapped on the glass. Hannah goggled at the apparition, then lowered her window a crack.

Evergreen eyes peered in at her and Hannah caught her breath. She didn’t even know eyes came in that color. They reminded her of Christmas trees: the really fresh kind, not the plastic sort that normally stood on an end table in the corner of her apartment.

“Everything okay in there? I saw that you’d pulled over. No wonder, really.” Little lines crinkled around his eyes, lending them warmth beneath the wind’s chill. “Given the weather.” He tugged off his fake beard and stuffed it in his pocket, exposing a rugged face.

Whoa, he was a good-looking Santa. She judged him to be a few years older than her but not more than five. As if his age mattered! Hannah wasn’t in Tennessee to stay and she certainly wasn’t in the market for a man. She’d had enough boyfriends to last her, thank you very much. And every…single…one of them had let her down. Love. Just one more four-letter word that had been canned from her vocabulary.
