I just wanted to take a moment and let everyone know about some fun author visits on the Facebook group TBR and Beyond. The Admins and Mods of this group has been working super hard and have connected with a number of authors who will be doing a live chat with everyone after the group read. Below is more details/close up of each event in June – I will come back in July and August with more details about those group reads/chats.
Reign of the Fallen – June 21st @ 8PM EST
Sarah Gleen Marsh will be joining us on a live chat to talk about her book Reign of the Fallen. This is a group read for TBR and Beyond and will fit in the June event of “Love is Love is Love” Word Search – visit the event page for more details on that one. This event can be found here.
Odessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers, catering to the kingdom’s ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.
A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?
Chance to Win…
By reading and joining the live chat, you have the chance to win a complete set of beautiful character cards from “Reign of the Fallen”. There will be 10 sets that will be given away at random during the live chat. It’s an international giveaway as well.
People Like Us – June 29 @ 8PM EST
Dale Mele will be joining us on June 28th at 8pm EST on Facebook for a live chat. She will be talking to us after we have read her book People Like Us. This is another book that will fit in the June Event (see link above). The event can be found here. Just to note, the event card above has a typo – the event date is June 29th at 8pm EST.
Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. Now she’s a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple.
The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.
Change to Win…
By reading and joining the live chat, you have a chance to win a signed bookmark. These too will be randomly given away during the live chat so make sure you join!
I am super excited for both of these books and hope that everyone decides to join us!
