Monday, February 2nf, 2015: Giveaway winners will be posted and announced (due to time off for Sunday’s Super Bowl)…and it’s looking like it’s going to be a Wild Monday here. I sure could use a cloning machine if anyone’s got an old one lying around somewhere!
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015: We’ll be reviewing When by bestselling author Victoria Laurie. Maddie has always seen numbers on everyone’s foreheads but she didn’t know they were each person’s death date until her father died unexpectedly. She always knows when but never how, so what good is it? Who wants to know the date they’ll die, especially since she fears those dates are locked down no matter what.
Wednesday, February 4th, 2015: In honor of Rosa Parks’ birthday, we’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League by Jonathan Odell. As Rosa Parks sits stubbornly in her bus seat, down the road in rural Mississippi the wealthy white Miss Hazel and the impoverished African American Vida have only two things in common: 1), each has lost a son; and 2) they cannot stand each other. What on earth could they have to do with Rosa Parks and the fledgling Civil Rights movement? Click here to read our review of Jonathan Odell’s The Healing.
Thursday, February 5th, 2015: We’re reviewing The Witch of Napoli, the debut novel by non-fiction author Michael Schmicker. In the late Victoria era, spiritual mediums and seances were all the rage. Most were debunked as frauds, but not all. When Napoli’s Alessandra Poverelli becomes the subject of a scientific study, she is secure in the knowledge that her gift is real so she welcomes the attention. But she has enemies she could never have guessed existed…
Friday, February 6th, 2015: I’ll be doing the Friday Happy Dance! At least that’s the plan at this point. So if any gremlins have other sneaky plans for Friday, they better think again!
Saturday and/or Sunday, February 7th and February 8th, 2015: We’ll update this page for the next week’s of reviews and giveaways.
