Monday Mishmash 10/27/14


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Monster Madness Blog Hop Join Vicki Leigh and I on Halloween for the Monster Madness Blog Hop. We'll be talking about what monsters scare us and you can join in. There's a giveaway too. Sign up here
  2. The Monster Within Book Tour  My book tour for The Monster Within is in full swing. I've had book signings the past two weekends and have two more this Saturday and another planned for the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I'm having a blast! I'll be at the Family Reading Festival in Pottsville, PA from 10am-1pm and then I'm heading to Moravian Book Shop from 5pm-7pm. If you are in either area, stop by and see me!
  3. Drafting Again  I have a rare moment between editing jobs, so I'm fast drafting again! This is the fourth book I'm drafting this year, and since three books was my goal, I'm happy.
  4. The Walking Dead Twitter Party  I'm hosting a Twitter Viewing Party during this weekends episode of The Walking Dead. Why? I love the show and my Touch of Death series was pitched as The Walking Dead meets Shatter Me, so yeah, I kind of love zombies. And maybe Daryl, too. ;) Join me! I'm giving away lots of prizes, including signed books and SWAG!
  5. The Darkness Within Cover Reveal  So there was a glitch with my cover reveal for The Darkness Within and the bloggers never got the info. But I'm so in love with this cover. Check it out. 
After dying of cancer at seventeen and being brought back to life by an evil witch who turned her into a monster, Samantha Thompson thinks she's finally gotten past all the tragedy in her life. Now she's part of a coven of good witches who are helping her and her boyfriend, Ethan Anderson, learn to use the powers they received from other witches. Aside from the fact that Sam and Ethan are still in hiding from their old lives--the ones they had before Sam was brought back to life--things couldn't be better. Sam and Ethan are inseparable. What could go wrong? 

Magic. 

Ethan's magic came from a witch who'd turned as evil as possible, and though his coven thought he'd be fine, the more he uses his magic, the stranger he starts acting. The magic inside him is changing who he is. One minute he's Sam's sweet, perfect Ethan and the next, he's a complete stranger. Even with all her witchy power, Sam is helpless against the magic corrupting Ethan. Can Sam find out what's wrong with him before she loses him to dark magic forever?

Add it on Goodreads. Pre-order on Amazon.

That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

*Oh, and don't forget that the #IntotheFireChallenge ends at midnight on Halloween, so get your review posted on Amazon.*

  3. Wow, so much good stuff going on for you at the moment. I'm racing to finish the chapter plan for my second novel so I can start writing it through NaNoWriMo next month. Exciting. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks, Meradeth. I just finished the draft. It felt good because this was the book I lost to a faulty flashdrive last year about 30K in.

  7. I love the cover, Kelly! Congratulations on all of your books signings. How fantastic!
    The blog hop and twitter party sound like they are going to be so much fun. I love The Walking Dead! I'm pooped Bob is gone=( Every time I get used to a new character, they take them away. But still, we are addicted to that show.

    1. Thanks, Gina. Yeah, it was said about Bob, but I was cheering when he told the Terminus clan that he'd been bitten and laughed in their faces. You go, Bob, for having the last laugh there.

    1. Thanks, Cathrina! I love signings, but they are much better with other authors to talk to. They can get lonely on your own.

  11. SO cool that you're doing so many events. You go! I am terrified of them, to be honest. I'm too much of an introvert, I think.

  12. Oooh, that is a great cover! I think I like it even more than the first one. Maybe b/c it features a guy, which is more rare? Doesn't hurt that he's a cutie either! =) Have fun at your book events!
