Call For Backup!! And a Giveaway

March 19, 2015

Calling in for Backup…and a giveaway!

 

As much as this is Josh and Adam’s (and the desert’s) story, there are a number of important secondary characters in  Something To Die For.

 

And I want to talk about them so badly, but in the words of River Song on Doctor Who…spoilers.

 

I can say right off the bat we meet Josh’s husband, Sergio. Sergio is an amazing guy: patient, kind, playful, sexy, and gorgeous. And so not what he seems.

 

Josh and Sergio’s kids, as well as Josh’s mother and siblings, figure heavily in the story as anchors for his sanity. Or do they? Because there are others who show up and throw that idea on its head, leaving Josh to wonder just who is real and who isn’t.

 

Saying too much more would give it all away…so, in that spirit…let’s do a giveaway!

 

In the comments, tell me the most magical, inspirational place you’ve ever been to. The more unusual, the better! This isn’t your typical café in Paris or three weeks in the Alps kind of question. Mostly because I haven’t been on real vacation in over a decade. Well over a decade, actually.

 

If you have photos, show us! Tell everyone about the time you took a wrong turn in Kenosha and ended up almost getting eaten by a moose and you were taken in by a kindly old couple who housed you for a night and you learned to crochet and make maple syrup pie.

 

Winner receives a copy of Something To Die For!

Something To Die For

Josh Tucker lives a blessed life—great job, great family, perfect husband, and two wonderful children—but a mysterious man named Adam who haunts his dreams and soon his waking life threatens everything when he stirs doubt as to whether any of it is real. Adam makes Josh question the world he’s taken for granted—as well as the origins of Adam himself.

Even if Adam’s claims are true, Josh has nothing to live for beyond his fabricated life—except the possibility of a real man out there somewhere who can love him. Josh is left with an impossible choice: stay in his delusion where he’s assured some happiness or take a great leap of faith for a chance to make a life with Adam.

    I don’t do much traveling in RL. The most magical and inspiration place I’ve been is my own mind. I’ve drawn up so many scenarios and visited so many places in my noggin.

    Which canyon is on your cover btw?
    For your question, I’m thinking when I visited the Grand Canyon and went on a small plane tour of the interior. It was so awe inspiring from that perspective, and you’re able to see the magnitude and majesty of it. Since it was many years ago before digital cameras, I have no photos to share.

    God,I haven’t traveled in ages (going on college made vacations pretty much non-existent)…but most memorable place…Well,Memento Park in Budapest (wiki: open air museum in Budapest, Hungary, dedicated to monumental statues from Hungary’s Communist period). It’s not magical and inspirational like a desert is to you,but it left the strongest impression on me…it speaks of the past…and I can’t really explain it. It really is haunting experience…

    No photos unfortunately,they’re on CDs (I can’t believe I still keep them that way,and not on PC)…

    Well my life isn’t that excited but one of the most memorable moment i had was when i was on vacation in Norway with my boyfriend (now husband). My husband loves to fish and after spending an afternoon looking for fishing gear he could lend it from a native Norwegian. The man had been fishing all day and didn’t catch a fish but when my husband trew in the line he got a fish hooked within the minute :) i always say it’s because he was fishing in a magical fjord in Norway.

    The cover is by Chris Griffin, so I don’t really know. DSP is really cool with cover designing. I tell them basically what I’m thinking of and they work their magic. It’s not actually a canyon…and it will make sense by the end of the book why it looks more like the Grand Canyon….

    I shoot about half my stuff on old fashioned film, so I am a HUGE fan of physical media storage, obviously.

    Yeah,there’s something about CDs :) …Like most people,I have a bunch of them (cassettes too),and I really don’t know where to put them anymore,and although most of those stuff is on PC,I didn’t throw them away…nostalgic,I suppose…

    When I visited Bath in England and strolled along the River Walk, I found myself actually tearing up at its beauty. That’s the first time that’s happened to date, and I’ve seen a lot of lovely places…
