ARC giveaway direct from Kelley Armstrong’s Facebook

Kelley Armstrong 12 hrs · Look what I have! Advance copies of This Fallen Prey, book 3 in my Rockton series. The book comes out in February but I have ARCs now, which I’ll start giving away today. You can also win one of 10 from my publisher, over on Goodreads. The Goodreads contest is U.S. only (it’s my US publisher) so my contest will be not-US, which seems perfectly fair ☺ If you’re in the US, go enter on Goodreads: (https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/…/257251-this-fallen-prey) If you’re outside the US, enter mine here. I’ll give away one copy. No skill-testing question for this. I’ll make mine as easy as theirs. To enter mine, just comment below and tell me which country you live in. We’ll make a random draw of all non-US entries left by midnight Thursday. You’ll find a synopsis for This Fallen Prey below. Chapter one is here: http://www.kelleyarmstrong.com/PDFs/This-Fallen-Prey-ch1.pdf I’ll get a longer excerpt up next month (remind me if I forget!) *** When Casey first arrived at the off-the-grid town, an isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect, with no cell phones, no internet, no mail, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. But the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their...

So, I have been a very bad girl… 

I find myself commiserating with authors as I am having trouble motivating myself to write reviews to keep up with my reading.  I do have a few excuses though.  One, Irma( maybe that should be my top ten) as I live in the destruction zone and though I was blessed to have relatively minor damage, getting back to normal has been a bitch and a half.  But I did get a few seconds of fame  https://youtu.be/0jd-UAe2-7I Two, I have been fighting  off a staph infection that is a resilient fighter.  That means not only do I have the infection making me feel awful but now I have antibiotics making me feel awful in ways the infection wasn’t. So, I apologize.  My intention is to make this post pretty small, but we will see where it goes.  I have been reading and I will be working on reviews to post here.  I am also now reviewing products from Amazon, so I am getting some really cool stuff for little to no cost! On a fixed income you gotta love every free thing you can legally get… But back to the point.  I recently watched a great show called somewhere between.  It was beyond excellent and I highly recommend...

Opening quotes for an ARC I am reading

So, I am super excited to have a sort of ARC of Haunted Blade by J. C. Daniels… And it starts off with some Quotes that resonate with me….   Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams   Kit Colbana – “I guess the same could be said for acts of revenge, stupidity, carelessness…every act has consequences.” And from later in the book, “Marie leaned forward. “Family isn’t always what you’re born to. Sometimes, you have to find your own, and claim...

Some Quotes from Recent Reads, reviews may be forthcoming or may be not… 

“It was difficult to believe that less than six hours ago, I’d been laughing and happy, and feeling like the world was finally starting to go my way. That would show me not to relax. It was just an invitation for life to kick me in the teeth as hard as it could” October Daye The Brightest Fell Seanan Mcguire      It’s understandable to a point, their loss, so great, so unimaginable. No one should have to bury a child. No one should bear that burden. And yet…people do. All the time. Children die, incrementally, all the time, whether their hearts stop or their babysitter decides to teach them the birds and the bees or their parents do drugs and beat them. They all die, little pieces falling off them as they age. Some go in the ground; others, the ones who are still breathing, are stripped of their inner joy. It is inevitable. It is life. Even if they make it out of their adolescence, especially then, the sparks that flame them into individuality are extinguished. Is it better to be a walking corpse, a shroud of who you could be, or leave this world before the disappointment of your lack of potential emerges? Philosophy. Such a devious monster. J.T. Ellison Lie to Me      His heart turned over. It hurt. Hearts didn’t hurt because you...

Security You Need But Don’t Know About

As many of you know, I am an Irma survivor.  Irma was projected to hit the county where I lived straight on and that was where it was going to make landfall and if that had happened  I don’t know that I would be here to make this post but we were saved by our neighbors to the near South and Marco Island.  My heart goes out to them as they took the hit that could have been ours. My sympathy goes to everybody else who has been effected by Irma. We have also been effected  although we were not as badly affected as we had feared there’s a lot of damage and it’s not just physical damage to buildings– it’s mental damage on a massive scale.  Having to evacuate and decide what you would take and what you would leave which pictures would go with you and how much clothes what could you carry what were your limits which shelters were pet-friendly versus those that were not does your next door neighbor have a generator or can you take shelter in the local church or what’s the best thing to do all of those questions were decided in a matter of days and sometimes in a matter of minutes. My main hard drive which has pretty much everything I use in my daily life was damaged due to...

So, what happened… 

Well Irma came and went and boy did she make an impression on all of us.  Central Florida is a complete mess.  Insurance companies are already citing deductibles and act of God loopholes.  Fema says they will help but that is not all that easy.  They haven’t set the amount they will give us yet.  A little like the world has ended and your check is in the mail.  Everything is still a little nuts… And they are saying power will be restored by the 22nd… But we have survived and rebuilding is what we do.  We Floridians rebuilt after Andrew, Charlie, and we will rebuild from Irma.  Today my kids went back to school and that is a sign of the fact that life goes on here, despite flooding and downed trees… Shortages will eventually be resolved and waters will...

So, I may be quiet for a bit…I am in Florida and may lose (well that’s a big question) my home, my life, my books, or just my power and internet…Hopefully I will escape this storm with minor damage, although given the insanity going on around me I may need therapy for PTSD, just kidding kind of… But back to the important part…There is a giveaway for all of the October Daye series and a bunch of wisdom http://www.unboundworlds.com/2017/09/seanan-mcguire-learned-october-plus-sweeps/ Name(required) Email(required) Website...
