SwitchingReview:
I was really excited when Jody Kihara, the author of The Frankincense Trail, asked me to review her latest book Switching because her last book was a favorite of mine last year.

One of the things I enjoyed most while reading Switching would have to be the ‘why’ when it came to how Terri and a couple other characters were switching. I found the reason, metal implants and electromagnetism, to be one of the coolest explanations for how a character could bounce around from one decade to the next. What made the time travelling theory in Switching even cooler was that the different metals used had different effects on the person travelling.

While the time travel theory was interesting, one of the best parts of this book is the author’s writing…

To celebrate the book’s release, there is a giveaway for 2 copies of the paperback and 5 ebooks! To enter, head on over to my Facebook page and leave your comment on the Switching Giveaway post… all you have to do is tell me when/where you’d most like to time travel to!

Below is the synopsis of SWITCHING. You can also read the first three chapters on this website (or download them to your Kindle from Amazon). And after you’ve read the book, be sure to check out the Book Extras!

Every week or two, Terry wakes up in a different time. She’s been ‘switching’ ? that’s her word for time traveling ? for the past eight months, and she has no recollection of her life before then. She doesn’t know who she is, why she’s time traveling, how to get home, or even when home is.

Then Terry meets some fellow travelers and finds out she’s not alone… and that there might be a way to get home. But the others have their own agendas, and Terry needs to be careful where she places her trust. She finds herself falling for one traveler, but a terrible secret bars his way home. Another traveler is growing desperate, and he doesn’t care who he uses in his attempt to get home… even if it puts them all in danger. Can Terry find a way home before he tries something dangerous? Or will he prevent her from getting home at all?

White Witch Pond… and Halloween!

Thanks so much to all the bloggers who participated in the White Witch Pond blog tour! You can read their reviews by following the links in the previous post.

The winners of the giveaway have been announced on my Facebook page. And as a Halloween treat, I’m offering the e-book of White Witch Pond for just 99 cents on Smashwords; use the coupon code NK28K at the checkout (valid until October 31st).

Below are some of the great pull quotes I got for the book:

White Witch“This creepy read grabs your attention from the beginning and doesn’t let go until the very last word.”

“Bound to spook anyone, this is full to the brim with excitement and a freaky fright. A great read for Halloween.”

“Fun, engaging, and suspenseful… I felt like I was right there with Shaya as she dug around for answers and had some really close calls.”

“Scary enough that it gives you chills and makes you look over your shoulder.”

“Jody Kihara’s writing style is so beautiful and it evokes such great imagery.”

“A refreshing and spooky Halloween read.”

“It kept me reading, rooting, and wondering and, by the end of the book, with a goofy smile on my face.”

“A really great, well-written story with just enough creepiness to satisfy my cravings. It would definitely make a good addition to any Halloween TBR.”

“Highly entertaining… the supporting characters were all really good too, and incredibly realistic.”

“White Witch Pond is definitely a creepy, fun tale fitting of All Hallows Eve!”

“Wow. This is fantastic. This must be read in the dark – it’s creepy and will give you chills. It’s a must-read for anyone looking for a good creepy book. I’ll definitely whip this one out every Halloween!”

Targa“Wonderfully spooky… a perfect read of October.”

“The hair on my arms stood up a little… a perfect read for a dark, stormy night.”

“With just enough creep factor to keep you from looking out the window in the dark, White Witch Pond will keep you reading until you reach the perfect ending!”

“Great ghost-witchy, quick read for the Halloween season!”

“A creepy story that reminded me a tiny bit of a horror movie.”

“A bit of mystery and local history create a spooky ambiance for this story.”

“This suspenseful thriller was a perfect read for October.”

“A very charming and haunting book”

“A fantastic story; the characters are perfectly developed and fit together perfectly.”

“I love the details Jody uses to create and set up the creepiness you feel as your reading the book… I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough!”

And these ones made me laugh out loud:

“Shaya is a wise-beyond-her-years heroine who yanks you right into the story when she finds a bracelet made of feathers, hair and bone (not your everyday Claire’s accessory!).”

“Hmmm… Why in such a rush, Shaya? Are you scared of things that go bump in the night? Especially around spooky ponds? You should be…”

“There were some moments where I got the heebs and had to steal a glance over my shoulder (I feel like such a wimp).”

“It reminded me of the new Paranormal Activity movies, kept you watching, kept you on the edge of your seat, and with out any notice WHAM something came at you and scared the bejesus out of you.”

Special thanks to Stormi of Lightning Book Promotions for organizing the tour; she did a fantastic job! If any authors out there are looking for a promoter, I highly recommend her.

Stay tuned for my next blog tour, for The Frankincense Trail, starting on November 1st – more details to follow.

And until then, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
