Violet thought being bitten by a zombie was the worst thing that could ever happen to her.

She was wrong.

Violet has been a prisoner for two weeks. She has no idea how to escape, the community of Harmony is trading people for supplies, and she still has the whole half-zombie thing to deal with. With all that’s going on, the last thing she has time for is another romantic complication. But when it rains, it pours. If Violet and her friends can thwart Ezra’s dark plans for the people of Harmony, while avoiding the hordes of mindless flesh-eating zombies —then maybe she’ll have time to worry about her personal life.

In the final installment in the Alive? series, our favorite half-zombie will come face to face with hordes of the undead, murderous survivors—and the one thing she’s always feared most.

Will Violet be strong enough to survive? Or has her luck finally run out?

Alive?
Melissa Woods
(The Alive? Series, #1)
Published by: Clean Teen Publishing
Genres: Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Young Adult, Zombies, Romance, Adventure Series

Everyone knows the first rule of the zombie apocalypse: Don’t. Get. Bitten.

Too bad Violet has never been great at following the rules. Walking home after a night of partying, she manages to let one of the Dead take a chunk out of her only hours after they’ve begun walking again. Fortunately for Violet, she doesn’t die. Unfortunately for Violet—she’s not exactly alive, either.

Violet’s body is undergoing changes, and suddenly the taste of human flesh is not as revolting as it once sounded. Controlling her new urges will be hard. Living with survivors who have no idea will be even harder. And the real zombies? They still want to eat her, too…

Surviving the zompocalypse is tricky when you play for both teams.

New from author Melissa Woods, Alive? is a heart-pounding adventure with suspenseful plot twists, complex characters, and a dash of dark humor. Gritty and raw, Alive? is sure to keep you guessing, and will delight zombie apocalypse fans everywhere.

Music From My Novel’s Playlist

I have one song that I used as a sort of theme song as I was writing The High Crown Chronicles. This morning I was searching YouTube, hoping for a music video of the song to share with you all. I came upon this instead.

So, this is the song that I consider my theme song for The High Crown Chronicles with the added bonus of someone having put it to images from a show that kind of encompasses the mood of my book–but as a note, I do not have dragons. Or an imp. Or white walkers. Or the vast readership of George RR Martin.

Don’t forget, The High Crown Chronicles will be out September 7, 2020.

Rumpel’s Redemption
Tamara Grantham
(Twisted Ever After, #3)
Published by: Clean Teen Publishing
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, Young Adult

Kardiya Von Fiddlestrum, a dark elf, yearns for adventure. But when she gets kidnapped by Rumpel Stiltskin and taken to a foreign magical realm, she realizes not all adventures are created equal.

Rumpel Stiltskin wants revenge on Kardiya’s grandmother for the curse that turned him into a goblin. Now free of that curse and in human-form again, the young prince knows he can use Kardiya to get to her grandmother. But revenge isn’t Rumpel’s only motivation. He’s also seeking the child of the dark elves from an ancient prophecy – only she can save his home, which has been infiltrated by the Sa’hadov. Could Kardiya be this elf? It may not matter, since she’s refusing to cooperate either way. But things change when she learns a hard truth…

Agreeing to help her kidnapper wasn’t her first choice—but neither was falling in love with him.

Rumpel’s Redemption is the third and final book in the Twisted Ever After series by Tamara Grantham, the award-winning author of more than a dozen books and novellas.

Another Sad & Shitty Day

On Christmas Day we found out that our sweet little furry friend Chewie had lung cancer. This came as a huge blow because she was so young and only three months ago we’d also had to put our Boxer to sleep (stupid, shitty cancer!).

We took Chewie home and kept her comfortable and loved on her as long as we could, but yesterday we realized it was time and we made the hard decision to say goodbye.


4 1/2 years wasn’t nearly long enough, but we loved every day we had with her. I’m comforted that it was Christmas break and the kids where home, so she spent her last two weeks surrounded by her family.


She was a sweet girl who loved her boys, playing with cats, reading time, jumping on the trampoline, making snow angels, playing German Spotlight with the boys & their friends, going for walks & to the dog park. She also loved sitting under the Barking Tree and…barking.
We will miss you girl 😢🐶💔

Book Review: How Quickly She Disappears by Raymond Fleischman

Set in 1914, against the harsh backdrop of a remote Alaskan community, How Quickly She Disappears is the story of Elisabeth, a wife and mother living a very quiet life in the far northern reaches of Alaska. Elisabeth is at a point in her life where she is isolated, geographically and emotionally, from her husband, her community, and family. In addition to her isolation, Elisabeth is still coping with the disappearance of her twin sister Jacqueline. Twenty years ago, when the girls were young, Jacqueline disappeared without a trace. Now, a strange man named Alfred has flown into town and manipulates his way into Elisabeth’s house, her life, and her past. Elisabeth’s life is turned upside down when Alfred commits a heinous crime in her small town, and then offers clues to her sister’s disappearance, clues that are entirely too detailed to be wrong. Before long, Elisabeth is pulled into a deranged cat and mouse game in the hopes of finally discovering what happened to Jacqueline all those years ago—and maybe even directly to the sister she’s always believed is still alive.

How Quickly She Disappears is a stark, haunting novel. I found myself wanting to disbelieve everything Alfred was telling Elisabeth but being drawn into this madness right alongside her.

My one complaint is that it wasn’t wrapped up in this novel, it left an opening for a sequel and it felt as forced and manipulative as Alfred was. This really felt like a standalone novel the entire time I read it and to be left like this at the end kind of ruined a lot of the experience for me.

How Quickly She Disappears will be available January 14, 2020.

*I received an Advanced Reader’s Copy of How Quickly She Disappears from Berkley Publishing Group and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
