Living Like A Vampire Blog Tour – Day 5

Day 5

Guess what? Today I have three bloggers posting about Living Like A Vampire! Each will have a little bit more information about the book or about me.

Let me start with Kim from Nemesis Book Blog. Kim has posted a little excerpt from the book when Kate and Charlie try to escape the suckers in a car. It doesn’t seem like much, but it has dire consequences! Go check it out on Kim’s site.

The second stop is on Laura Nelson’s Facebook site: Tangents and Tissues Book Blog. Laura wanted to know more about me, so I wrote a bit about a question I often get when I wear my fangs; “Are you a real vampire?” Check out my answers, and I’ll let you decide!

The third stop is on the blog of Cassandra’s MADEUP-Group. I’m so thrilled she liked the story! This is what she has to say about it:

“For somebody who enjoys Vampire type stories, I tend to have quite high expectations from them, and this didn’t let me down. (…) If you enjoy Vampire/Apocalyptic/Romantic stories with a bit of a twist on the norm, this is the story for you! I can’t wait to see what comes from the next book!”

Obviously, she has more nice things to say about Living Like A Vampire, so head over there to check it out!

Thank you, Kim, Laura, and Cassandra, for participating in my Blog Tour! You are wonderful people!

I’m afraid I’m going to keep this post short as I didn’t get much sleep last night. I did a book signing at Slains Castle, Aberdeen, and only went to bed at 1:30am; way past my bedtime! And I was awake at 5am again for no good reason… So, I’ll leave you with some photos of last evening. Night, night!

Living Like A Vampire Blog Tour – Day 3

Day 3

Another great review for Living Like A Vampire today! This time from the lovely Kirsty Crichton on The Midnight Review blog. You can read her review there, but here’s a summary of her review:

Overall Thoughts:

From the opening chapters, the tension ratchets up and stays that way. That and the short chapters have you racing through the book in no time. The pace is pitched perfectly. I read this in two sittings. I have a love-hate relationship with short chapters, ‘oh, just one more’ followed by ‘how is it 2am?!’ They certainly help you to speed through.

I did enjoy this book and it certainly is an excellent choice for a Halloween read!

Love at First Sight

Now, Kirsty did have a problem with the ‘love at first sight’ that Kate experiences. She’s not the only one, or so I’ve heard. My guess is that some people put the book aside once ‘the moment’ occurs. I honestly don’t understand why. As I mentioned in my interview with Emit Blackwell on The Emit Blackwell show, a lot of what I write in my books are taken from my own life. Not exact moments, I’m not writing about particular persons or events; I’m talking about emotions. And I have experienced these ‘love at first sight’ moments.

It’s not love-love, i.e. not the love I have for my husband whom I’ve shared my life with for nearly thirty years. That’s a different kind of love. No, call it an infatuation, an instant attraction to someone that you can’t explain. It gives you butterflies in your belly, attracting you like a magnet, and you just have to get to know this person better. Maybe I’m old-fashioned. Maybe, in this day and age, relationships are more calculated, more business-like as in ‘what do I get out of it?’ Or maybe my hormones have been more active in the falling-in-love department than the average person. Who knows? All I know is that love at first sight really is ‘a thing.’ I’d love to hear from people who’ve had the same experience.

Thank you, Kirsty, for being part of my Blog Tour, for with sticking with the story, and finding out what Suckers is all about!


Blog Tour – Mark L. Fowler

Blue Murder Blog Tour

Welcome to Mark L. Fowler’s Blog Tour! Mark is promoting his new book, Blue Murder, in the Tyler & Mills crime series. I’ve interviewed Mark again recently, and you can read the interview here.

Mark has been kind enough to give me a copy of Blue Murder in advance. Here’s my review:

I received an advanced copy of Mark Fowler’s second DCI Tyler and DS Mills murder mystery novel, Blue Murder and this review is given freely. Not having read the first novel, Red Is The Colour, I found myself easily engrossed in Blue Murder (trying to finish the book during early hours of the night), enjoying the developing professional relationship between brooding DCI Jim Tyler and the sarcastically witty DS Danny Mills, and getting to know more about Tyler’s dark past.

Blue Murder sees an ex-band member, Adam, murdered. His girlfriend, Daisy, points the finger to her sister, Janine, who stole her ex-boyfriend and lead singer of the band, Johnny, from her. But there’s also Billy, the two young men’s school buddy, who had stepped in to take Adam’s place when he left the band not too long ago. Then there’s the band’s song, ‘All Colours are Blue,’ that’s becoming a hit, and money is being made. Now everybody is claiming to have written the song. Tyler and Mills have their hands full trying to figure out who’s lying about what, which is made difficult with lead singer Johnny missing since Adam’s murder.

Blue Murder is a great psychological thriller about love, fortune, and fame. Tactical interrogations are prime in this well-told story. Red herrings are strewn left, right, and center to keep you guessing. Pick up this book and you’re in for a great, keeping-you-on-your-toes detective novel!

Blue Murder is available as eBook and paperback:
