Waking Up Dead by Margo Bond Collins: Pre-Release

Posted by Unknown  |  at  8:00 AM

We have a visitor today. She does a much better introduction than me so let me give the reigns to her immediately.

Hi, everyone! First I want to thank Wendy for letting me hijack her blog today for a stop on my pre-release teaser tour for the paranormal mystery Waking Up Dead, due out from Solstice Publishing and available via Amazon on October 8!

Be sure to add Waking Up Dead to your Goodreads bookshelves:

When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected to go to Heaven, or maybe Hell. Instead, she met her fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy complex. Now she's witnessed another murder, and she's not about to let this one go. She's determined to help solve it before an innocent man goes to prison. And to answer the biggest question of all: why the hell did she wake up in Alabama?



It took me a while to figure out what had happened, of course. I came to, drifting along a downtown sidewalk in some strange little town. A full moon shone high above me, glinting off the windows of the closed stores. The only noise came from a little pub-like bar down a side street. I didn’t know where I was or how I’d gotten there. What better cure for that than a stiff shot of something?
Next thing I knew, I was inside the bar. Like I was having those--whatchamacallits--those blackouts that people with multiple personalities claim to get. Fugues. I actually wondered for a minute if maybe that’s what was going on.
Then I tried to order a drink. “Vodka martini, extra dirty. Lots of olives,” I said when the bartender glanced my way.
The bartender ignored me. I tried again. The bartender walked away.
That’s when I became Callie Taylor, Ghost Cliché.
I leaned over the dark oak bar and yelled after the bartender. “Hey! Down here! I want to order something.” I got kind of a funny feeling in my stomach--like a muscle cramp or something. When I looked down, I realized I was standing in the middle of the bar, drink glasses and all. That concerned me, so I stepped right through it and to the other side.

About the Author

Most know me as the author to Fabulosity Reads and in actual fact, that is the previous name of this blog. I have since then moved my books to a Wordpress self-hosted blog so that I can have a place to show a different side of me which I am equally passionate about and that is marketing and personal development. I hope you will love being here, watching me grow as I share and learn. My highest hope is that we will grown and learn together in all disciplines affecting our lives. I'd LUUURRRVE to hear from you, so don't be shy...


  1. Interesting title. Caught my attention. The trailer is appealing too. Congrats Margo.

  3. I actually meant to mention that too about the title Peaches. It got me hooked and so did that excerpt. Thank you for visiting.


I love hearing from you....
