Whom Would You Want To Be Stuck with During a Blizzard? / Frozen Crimes Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY + FREE EBOOK

 

Frozen Crimes Blog Hop Prompt: Whom would you want to be stuck with during a blizzard, and what would you do?

My Answer: It would be a cliché to say I'd pick my own characters. No, not Beth and Donovan. Are you crazy? I don't want to go through what they go through in Frozen Crimes. Nuh-uh. Nope. 

The characters I would like to hang out with are from what I refer to as my "Secret Book Baby Series." You may have seen me refer to these books if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook. But...these books aren't published, and I'm not sure when they will be, so it wouldn't be fair of me to describe them right now.

So...my official answer is...Piper, Phoebe, and Paige from Charmed.

This isn't part of the question, but we'd obviously be hanging out in the manor, which could be strange because they live in San Francisco, but maybe it'll be a supernatural blizzard. Who knows?


I could cook and bake and make potions with Piper. (As long as there's power.)

Piper (Holli Marie Combs)

I could write and discuss writing with Phoebe.

Phoebe (Alyssa Milano)

With Paige, I could do a lot of stuff, like tarot readings, art, and listen to music.

Paige (Rose McGowan)

With all three sisters, we could talk about anything and everything. And, of course, I'd be able to see their powers up close and personal.

If things get super hairy blizzard-wise, Paige could always orb us out of there to anywhere in the world. Ha! (Genius!)

When disasters strike around every corner, is it possible to have a happily-ever-after?

BLURB: Beth and Donovan are expecting their first child. Life couldn’t get any better…until a stalker makes his presence known. This person sends disturbing messages and unsettling items, but it isn’t long before his menacing goes too far.

Hoping for a peaceful Christmas, Donovan takes Beth to Michigan. Days into their trip, a winter storm named Nemesis moves in with the goal of burying the state. Snowdrifts surround their house, and the temperature drops below freezing.

Except, the storm isn’t the only nemesis they must face. Everyone’s lives are at stake—especially that of their unborn child. Will they survive, or will they become a frozen crime?

EXCERPT:

The crunch of the shovel pounding into the snow and ice filled his ears. It was all he could hear. The rest of the street was silent beneath its wintry blanket. Breathing was difficult with the icy air clogging his lungs. His nose burned. His throat was dry and on fire. But he ignored it, focusing on his task.

Crack, crack, crack.

He jabbed the shovel into a hunk of snow. On the third hit, it shattered into several pieces. He scooped them up and flung them to the side. He surveyed what remained. There was one big ball in the middle of the path that needed to be dealt with next. He moved over to it and struck it. That one impact had it severing in two. He was about to hit it again when something crashed into the back of his head.

Explosions of white light danced over his vision. Pain enveloped his skull. The shovel slipped from his fingers. Blackness cloaked his mind, coaxing him into its depths.

Beth. Her name was a whisper in his head, as if his thoughts were being sucked into a wormhole.

His legs collapsed under his weight.

Cold. It seeped into him, consuming him. And then his consciousness fled down that same void that ate his thoughts.

  1. Congratulations on your latest release!

    As I'm currently binge-watching Doctor Who, I'd like to be stuck in a blizzard with the Doctor (preferably 11), because he'd have the TARDIS to take me places. I wouldn't cheat though, we'd always come back to the storm :-)

  18. Whom would you want to be stuck with during a blizzard, and what would you do?
    Well, you went fictional, so I shall do the same. I'll say Xavier from my Existence book series. He has no problem with ice and snow. (ROFLMAO. That's hilarious if you figure out the character.) We'd have a snowball fight. No, wait, we'd throw those snowballs at a certain target. I'm not gonna say who, but there's a fair amount of people who would break the Internet sharing a video of this real person taking a snowball to the mouth.

    I am excited for the Pass or Pages query contest at Operation Awesome with the YA category this October. I hope you've been staying healthy and thriving as best as you can this year.
