Writing Words With the Tips of My Toes
You read right! This week will be a double book giveaway, so instead of the winner winning one book, the winner will win two! Each book I choose is either reminiscent of the current book I’m working on, Stolentime, or the one that has been accepted for publication, When Stars Die. The Graveyard Book is reminiscent of Stolentime. When Stars Die isn’t reminiscent of a whole lot because the witches in my book are unlike any you have read about, but anyone who enjoys paranormal romance, or romance, or anything dark will enjoy it as well as Shannon Thompson’s Minutes Before Sunset.
Here is a description from Amazon of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book:
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy.
He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead.
There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy-an ancient Indigo Man beneath the hill, a gateway to a desert leading to an abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer.
But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family. . . .
Next up, a description of Shannon Thompson’s Minutes Before Sunset:
Eric has a life-or-death confrontation planned and waiting for him on his 18th birthday.
Jessica just wants to find out who, or what, her parents were.
Neither of them is ready for the answers they’ll find.
Minutes Before Sunset is Book 1 of the Timely Death series.
“She was undoubtedly a shade, but I didn’t know her.”
Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.
“He had gotten so close to me—and I couldn’t move—I couldn’t get away.”
Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.
