I thought I'd give you some author insight into the book of one of my favourite writer's books today.
By the way Margo also wrote one of the best tutorials to ever grace my blog and it is still getting plenty of reading traffic even today. HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BOOK TRAILER is a wonderful tool.
Of course I also recently organised a tour for her book: WAKING UP DEAD .
The tour was a resounding success thanks to my marvelous tour host team.
The book itself is nothing short of brilliant, dont take my reader word for it.
I gave this book to a number of tour hosts and they loved it. Howabout getting a copy: AMAZON
I'm also happy to announce that Margo booked her next tours with FABULOSITY READS BOOK PROMOTIONS immediately after the first. I clearly did something write... **air kisses margo**
I will be running a BOOK BLAST for Fairy, Texas on the 21st and I will come back to you with a date soon about the REVIEW ONLY TOUR.Fairy, Texas, is a YA Paranormal Romance/Mystery forthcoming from Solstice Shadows Publishing on February 4, 2014.
Meantime I am inviting your to help out with a post for the tour taking place next week.
I'd love for you to participate so please get on the linky list at the end of the post.
Now over to Margo:
“Hey,” I said, hurrying after the woman. “Wait up.”
“I know you’re not talking to me,” she said. She stared straight ahead and pushed her cart down the middle of the aisle toward housewares.
“I am talking to you. Look. I know this is really weird, but I need your help.”
“Well, I’m not talking to you. I don’t know what your problem is, but you can take it somewhere else.”
I wanted to reach out and grab her cart, to make her stop and talk to me, but of course I couldn’t. Which gave me an idea.
I scurried out in front of her, planting myself in her path.
“Move,” she said.
“Not until you hear me out. Please?”
She moved her cart to the left. I stepped out to intercept her. She moved to the right. So did I.
“You got some kind of death wish or something?” she asked.
I laughed and shook my head. “If only you knew.”
“I’ve got no time for this,” she said. And she slammed into me with her shopping cart.
At least, that’s what she planned to do.
The shopping cart, however, slid right through me. When it stopped, the basket had sliced cleanly through my midsection. The bottom rack merged with my ankles. From my perspective, it looked like two perfectly solid objects–me and the shopping cart–had melted together. I don’t know what she saw.
Whatever it was, it wasn’t good.
The woman’s eyes widened, then rolled up into her head as she slumped to the ground in a dead faint.
I bent down to try to wake her up, but no matter how hard I concentrated on making contact, I couldn’t even touch her.
I hate being a ghost.
