Bookish Stuff from around the Blogosphere ~ giveaways and new releases



Ebook Giveaway ~ There is an ebook giveaway for Marissa Farrar’s new release The Dark Road at Nicole’s new blog - The Dandridge Estate.

Just leave a comment with a contact email and you will be entered. However you need to do this  today since the winner will be announced tomorrow.

Nicole will be offering a free book every Friday on her blog, which is on the horrific side, so if you like horror then stop by and say hello!

Here’s a bit about Marissa’s latest book which will have some elements of romance:

Blurb:  When a group of backpackers are thrown together on a bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia, they have no idea of the journey ahead of them.

Shortly after crossing the Cambodian border, one of the group disappears off the side of the road, and they quickly discover they have more than the threat of land mines to worry about. They are plunged into a terrifying world of ancient temples, curses and long-dead kings and, one by one, they start to lose both their minds and their lives, as what was supposed to be an adventure turns into a fight for survival.

I have read one book by Marissa and she is an amazing new author, with an easy to read and accessible style. Check out my review for her first book Alone. I am excited about reviewing her new book too since I do love horror and this one has an Asian twist!

In case you do not want to wait to win this book here is the purchasing link at Smashwords for The Dark Road. It’s a “screaming” deal (pun intended since it is horror) at $ 4.99.


Announcing the Release: for the ebook version of  Toil and Trouble ~ by H.P. Mallory

It is the second book in this series. The first of the books is linked below too.

An International Birthday Giveaway:

Graham Parke, author of the award winning comedy/suspense novel No Hope for Gomez! is having an online birthday party for his novel since it's been a year since he handed in the proofs.

There will be a raffle of kindles and ipods. The event will be held on Dec 2nd which is today! Here's just some of the stuff you will get:

  • Exclusive short story collection

  • Signed hi-res poster + bookplate
  • (These are all exclusive items and will not be available again)

About the Book:  It's the age-old tale:  Boy meets girl.  Boy stalks girl.  Girl already has a stalker. Boy becomes her stalker’s-stalker.

We've seen it all before, many times, but this time it's different. If only slightly. When Gomez Porter becomes a test subject in an experimental drug trial, he is asked to keep track of any strange experiences through a blog. What Gomez isn't ready for, is so many of his experiences suddenly seeming strange; the antiques dealer trying to buy his old tax papers, his neighbor boiling salamanders on his balcony at midnight, the super sexy lab assistant who falls for him but is unable to express herself in terms outside the realm of science. But when one of the trial participants turns up dead and another goes missing, Gomez begins to fear for his life. No longer sure who he can trust and which of his experiences are real and which merely drug induced illusions, he decides it's time to go underground and work out a devious plan.

Now, years later, his blogs have been recovered from a defunct server. For the first time we can find out firsthand what happened to Gomez as he takes us on a wild ride of discovery.

Amazon links for US|UK|Canada.

Good luck, have fun, and happy reading!
