Snow Fright book Blurb

Sarah White is gorgeous even if she is a little bit rotten. A mirror arrives on her twelfth birthday and she thinks it’s the perfect gift. But when an innocent game of laser tag gets out of hand, the mirror swallows her whole!

Sarah finds herself dead center of the Underworld. As if repeated run-ins with Mr. Death weren’t bad enough, Sarah now has to deal with her decaying flesh and sudden craving for brains. Not to mention she keeps having brain freezes, all due to the seven worms living in her head.

Of corpse, by the time Sarah escapes the Underworld, she finds her new zombie life less than appetizing. Even worse, she needs to return to the Underworld to save her friends, Cindy and Scarlet. With a poisoned apple, a crow named Raven, and a glowing necklace, Sarah’s pretty sure that if she doesn’t rescue her friends, she’ll be a brain craving zombie forever. And that’s more dead-ication than she’s willing to accept.

Book Spotlight: The Finger Trap

Today, we get a treat from author Johnny Worthen! He’s going to tell us about his personal connections to his latest release, The Finger Trap. Read on for entertaining details from a talented writer! ~A


FingerTrapI have a problem according many modern marketers, I write in multiple genres. My best selling series is YA paranormal something. My debut was a horror and within the last year I’ve had two mysteries be published. I wear tie-dye as a metaphor for being multiple genre author, a symbol to combine the multiple tiles and genres into a kaleidoscope I wear on my body because ultimately, I am the connecting tissue all the book.

Though I say that I have yet to write a book that couldn’t be taught successfully in an English Class thus suggesting that my books are all literary and thus connected, the truth is that they’re all about me. Whether it’s a group of people struggling with love and it’s horrors as in BEATRYSEL or my fear of change and acceptance ELEANOR or testing the limits of my own beliefs as in THE BRAND DEMAND, each is ultimately an investigation into my own psyche. They’re all about me. None more so than THE FINGER TRAP.

Tony Flaner is a malingering part-time detective, full time sarcastic who’s never had it hard and never really finished a thing in his life. Many readers have commented on the resemblance between my fictional detective and me, hopefully for the good parts, but I will tell you that I am not Tony. Tony is not me. Tony is the man I want to be. I wrote him to explore what it felt like to be comfortable in your own skin, to have the confidence and perspective to realize how truly ludicrous the world is. He’s full of flaws and is better for them. He struggles with his own personal limitations as I do daily and finally finishes something. THE FINGER TRAP was that very experience for me. THE FINGER TRAP was the book that convinced me that I wanted to be a writer.

The true theme of the book can only be understood and appreciated when the reader holds it in their hands, feeling its weight, ruffling its pages and reading the tale beginning, middle and end. It is the embodiment of completion for Tony and for me, his creator. The book’s existence completes the parallel tale of author and protagonist.

THE FINGER TRAP is by far my most autobiographical and personal book. Far and away the most fun and funniest of my titles in print. It is a call to Carpe Diem, an ode toe the Flaneur and the success of a completion. It is a modern noir, mid-life crisis, coming of age, social satire, comedy – with quiche.

Readers don’t need to understand or care about the personal journey it represents for me. It has been recognized and praised on its own merits even by people who don’t know me. I’m eternally grateful to them and and all of the readers. It’s public validation for a personal quest.

Gotta’ love Tony Flaner.

Some reviews:

“I love a smart-aleck hero, and Johnny Worthen has a real winner in Tony Flaner. The Finger Trap is a rollicking good time.” —Steve Brewer, author, the Bubba Mabry mysteries
“I love a smart-aleck hero, and Johnny Worthen has a real winner in Tony Flaner. The Finger Trap is a rollicking good time.” —Steve Brewer, author, the Bubba Mabry mysteries

“Johnny Worthen trapped more than just my finger in this fun mystery. His writing is captivating, as are his characters. Highly recommended!” —Becky Clark

“A voice driven, modern noir, social satire, coming of age mid-life crisis comedy detective story. With quiche. So good, I’d write it again. :-)” —Johnny Worthen

“Don’t read this book lying down. You could choke to death laughing. This book was more than just funny. It’s a great the bad guy gets it in the end story. I hope there will be more Tony Flaner Mysteries.”

Guest Blog: Sleeping girls (and how to wake them up)

My guest blogger today is Jenniffer Wardell! She’s the fabulous author of fairy tales with a twist (and a zing). Her titles are Fairy Godmothers, Inc., Beast Charming, and her newest release (May 17!) Dreamless. To celebrate the launch of her latest work of art, she’s visiting today and treating us to the amazing cover reveal. Enjoy!

Dreamless comes out May 17. Preorder your copy today!

Dreamless comes out May 17. Preorder your copy today!

When you’re trying to adapt “Sleeping Beauty,” the first thing you have to do is figure out what you’re going to do with the big stumbling block right at the heart of the story.

See, the problem with “Sleeping Beauty” is that the heroine is asleep for the most exciting parts. In fact, her falling asleep is the big dramatic event in the third act, normally after supporting characters have run around frantically trying to stop it from happening. Then someone else – the prince, Maleficent, what have you – comes along and breaks the curse. The same curse, mind you, that was dropped on her head as a baby through no fault (or even decision-making) of her own.

Noticing a pattern here? More than in most fairy tales, our poor Sleeping Beauty is mostly a pawn of the plot – things happen to her, but she never seems to get the chance to actually make things happen for herself. Even in Perrault’s version, which goes into considerable detail about what happens after Sleeping Beauty wakes up, doesn’t give the poor girl much more to do. Yes, her ogre of a mother-in-law threatens to eat her children, but it’s a compassionate steward who saves them. The princess herself barely rates an inconveniently-timed mention in her own future. (We won’t talk about the version where the babies are what wake her up.)

For many women, writers and readers alike, this powerlessness is like an itch just under the skin that can never be quite scratched. So we tweak the story, time and time again – never let her fall asleep, have her save the day after she wakes up, let her help in defeating the villain, let her meet her hero before the curse hits and she falls asleep. Something, anything, to give her a piece of her agency back. To let her be the hero of her own story, instead of merely the prize.

With “Dreamless,” I wanted to take it even further. First, I made sure she knew about the curse. Many versions of the story leave her clueless, and while that may make for a more pleasant childhood it leaves her completely unable to fight back when the worst danger comes. Second, I made her a sorceress, putting her on equal footing with the woman who dropped the curse on her in the first place. It doesn’t magically let her fix the problem (when you’re writing about sorceresses, it’s hard not to pun), but it at least gives her the firepower to fight back.

Third, and most importantly, I make Elena realize that she needs to fight back. At the start of “Dreamless,” Elena has accepted her fate – she and other magic-users have spent years trying to undo the curse, but no one has been able to manage it. She’s lost hope, and because of that she sits back and prepares to let the story happen to her. To, basically, become the version of Sleeping Beauty from the original stories.

But sometimes, you’ll fight for the people you love even when you won’t fight for yourself. Elena realizes over the course of the book that she has too much to live for, and that she has to hope even though it’s the scariest thing in the world. It’s a different kind of wake-up call, but in some ways it’s a lot more effective.

7 Tips for Surviving ComicCon

ComicConAnyone excited for SLC’s FanX? These ComicCon conventions are over the top. Celebrities and fans are able to come together to get their geek on, and it’s quite the spectacle! People spend months putting their costumes together. They dress up from their favorite shows and movies, and they really go all out! If you’ve never been to one of these conventions, you’re seriously missing out. Look for one in your area, it’s worth it!
Since SLC’s FanX is coming up, my mind is on preparing for that long weekend. Here’s a list of must-haves that I’ve learned to take with me to survive the experience. I realize some of these tips are very basic, but you’d be surprised at how many people forget them or had so many other things on their minds – like meeting celebrities and their costumes – that they just didn’t think of them. So, check out this list and I hope it helps you prepare for the con near you.

1- Backpack or rolling suitcase

First things first: If you are going to take this stuff I’ve suggested below, you’ll need a practical means of taking it with you. Once you get into a con, you won’t want to go back to your car until you’re leaving for the day. You will also be buying all kinds of merchandise at a con like this, and you’ll want something to carry all of your purchases in.
There’s pros and cons to both a backpack or a rolling suitcase. A backpack is easier to get through a big crowd and it won’t trip others when you try to circumvent everyone around you. The downside is that it will hurt your back and shoulders after a while.
The rolling suitcase doesn’t need to be very large. It’s nice to have something to pull along with you so your back and shoulders aren’t dying by the end of your awesome con weekend. This is my favorite option for rolling suitcase to bring to a con.
You can purchase a hybrid – one that you can carry as a backpack or switch to roll on the floor. Best of both worlds. This is my preferred method.
*Note that most cons reserve the right to search your bags when you enter, for security purposes.
2- Snacks and water bottles

WaterbottleThink Thin
Yes, cons will have lots of food vendors around, but you don’t want to have to be stuck in long lines when you’re starving. Plus, with all the walking you’ll be doing, you’ll likely be hungry for snacks in between meals. You want something that isn’t too heavy and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. You also need something that will satisfy your hunger for a good while. The following are my recommendations.
*Note: these are gluten free~

Think Thin Bars
Healthy Bars

Water is a huge deal. You’re going to be inside all day with thousands of other bodies breathing in the same recycled air. You’ll need lots of water to sustain you through the whole weekend. Bring a big water bottle. You can refill it at drinking fountains throughout the day. This is the one thing that will seriously weigh down your pack, but it’s necessary. Here’s a link to a great quality one.

If you want something extra to keep you hydrated, I suggest getting Eco drink packets. These are filled with nutrients and vitamins that will keep you extra hydrated and will even help prevent headaches. I take them to any con I make an author appearance at.

Gum or mints are highly recommended since you’ll be meeting celebrities and don’t want to have bad breath when you’re getting your picture taken with them!

3- Protective covers for pics or signatures with celebrities

Speaking of meeting celebrities, if you have purchased a photo op with them, you’ll have to pay extra for any photo covering to protect it. And even then, the photo could still bend! Not something you want when you just payed $100+ for a once-in-a-lifetime picture. The following links to the perfect photo covers that will keep those pictures from bending or scratching while you’re enjoying the rest of your day.

Presentation Case




4- Tylenol, Advil, or essential oils

Headache Gel
I don’t know if it’s raising your voice over the noise all day, being around a bunch of people, or the recycled air, but headaches are very common for people attending a con – especially if it’s your first one. Whatever your preference for pain killers, make sure you bring it with you! Here are my favorite brands for staving off those unwanted headaches:
Headache Relief Gel





5- Good walking shoes

Dr Scholls
Yes, I know you’re dressing up in your favorite cosplay, or you want to look fabulous/sexy when you meet that one celebrity you’ve been a fan of since Jr. High. But seriously, wear comfy shoes. No dressy heels, no amazing boots that complete your costume. Wear walking shoes that have good arch support and that won’t make your feet sweat. You’ll be standing and walking for a very long time. Take care of those feet so that you’re not hating life by the time you get to the last day of your con.
If you insist on wearing your “pretty shoes”, try these inserts or arch supports.




6- Set amount of cash (plan a budget before going)

Whether you’re going for one day or three, plan how much you’ll be spending each of those days. While most vendors take cards, you’ll stick to your budget better if you only use cash. Also, with so many people on the same wi-fi, their swipers may not be the most reliable. Keep your money on your person at all times and don’t make yourself an easy target by tucking it into your back pocket for thieves. Also be aware that in a crowded place like these cons, RFID often occurs. Here’s something you can use to store your cash and keep your credit cards protected from identity theft.

7- Hand Sanitizer
With so many people walking around, germs will be all over the place. Lots of people come home from a con and get sick soon after. You should use hand sanitizer all throughout the day. After using the restroom (Yes, even though you washed your hands), before eating, and after you’ve socialized and shook lots of hands.

Cover Reveal for Numbers Ignite!

Numbers Ignite
Rebecca Rode
(Numbers Game, #2)
Publication date: January 26th 2016
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult

Treena and Vance think they’ve pulled out of the numbers game forever. They’re wrong.

After Treena’s disastrous attempt to unite the nation, she has the deaths of hundreds haunting her dreams. Now, with hatred and accusations following her past the border, she’s determined to leave that horrible day behind and find a peaceful, uneventful life with Vance and the settlers. But when she starts seeing mysterious figures hiding in the abandoned cities at night and uncovers a strange desert population, she realizes there’s a danger much greater than NORA to worry about—and she just abandoned her people to their fate.

Vance is a prisoner. Being rejected by the girl he loves and put on trial for betraying his clan are bad enough, but now he’s been framed for a crime he never committed. Their less-than-perfect refuge has become the political game of a madman, and Vance is the only one who can stop it—if he can keep from being executed first.

Treena and Vance are still very much in the game, and this time it will take everything they have to save those they love.

*Numbers Ignite is the sequel to the runaway Amazon #1 Bestseller, Numbers Game.

Twenty years later, Jack Crowley and Jim Patterson stumble onto the conspiracy, and every answer they find is accompanied by more questions – and more deaths.
Jack is a former idealist, turned cynical by his years working as a New York tabloid editor. But his enthusiasm returns as he looks into the work of a NASA scientist who tells Jack about cover-ups at the space agency. Jim is a detective with little patience for conspiracy nuts. But he hates loose ends, and is unable to let go of the inconsistencies in another suspicious NASA death. Soon, his investigation leads him to Jack, and they join forces.
As Jack and Jim dig deeper, they are targeted by the type of killers that don’t usually miss. From Washington to Las Vegas to the Middle East, they manage to stay one step ahead of their pursuers in a race to expose the truth, and maybe, just maybe, save the world.

Living With No Regrets Is Harder Than It Seems
Finley isn’t exactly sure when her life began to feel unfamiliar. She suspects the transformation started long before she caught her husband and fellow garden club member doing the white-trash-two-step on her new Bernhardt sofa. Now free from the shackles of a loveless marriage, and with her children off to college, she’s finally able to go searching for the missing pieces of her heart.
Finley’s best friend, Cathyanne, is already working hard to ensure that Finley finds true love this time around. But when Finley is unwittingly tossed into the arms of two men—their sexy trainer and her neighbor, a popular country star—Cathyanne fears finding the right guy will be more complicated than she ever could have imagined.
For Finley, building a new life feels as impossible as flying a paper airplane to the moon. But maybe, just maybe, with the right help, she will find her whole heart—even if it’s in the very last place she thinks to look.

To Swallow the Earth

Movie Rating: PG for violence
Genre: Western Suspense

Available on KindleNook

108 years in the making! What if you came home after a journey and your family was no longer there? What if someone else was living in your house, running what you used to manage—and trying to kill you?
Wade Forester must stay in the shadows because, it seems, everyone has reason to shoot him. His father has disappeared, and his sister won’t speak a word to anyone. Beautiful Patricia Laughlin is searching for her family as well. Few people gain her trust or approval, though powerful landowner Bridger Calhoun just might be the man to do it.
After a clash throws them to opposite sides, Wade must decide if risking his life to help Patricia is worth the trouble. Bridger must win Patricia’s heart, and Patricia must learn which killer to trust with her life.
Set in Nevada’s historic silver rush, and reminiscent of Crichton, Grey, and L’Amour, the writing comes from intimate knowledge of the era and area. Having lived off the land, Wilcox depended on his wit, grit, and strength—and that of his animals—for survival, just as these characters do. Wilcox and Beckstrand weave authentic detail and care for the terrain and its creatures into a mystery that will make your heart pound and fill your lungs with the “rarefied air” of the old Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Comes with additional short story.

Even though he’d like nothing more than to run in the other direction, he’s unable to ignore the beautiful stranger’s request for help in taming her new dog.
Can Will get past her resemblance to his ex and finally learn to love—and trust—again? And can Charlie find the fun in a simpler existence? Who knows, maybe opposites really do attract.

The gods are gone. All of them.

But taking care of his guests, keeping his hotel afloat and dealing with the constant drama of the Others’ lives is figuratively killing him. And now that an unusually strange Other is in town, his figurative demise might soon become more literal.
Paradise Lot is a new urban fantasy series by R.E. Vance that chronicles the adventures of the humans and ‘Others’ alike, as they struggle to navigate this strange, new post apocalyptic godless world.
