Zeus is Undead – Release Day!

“The gods are back again!” This advanced reader has some thoughts on that!

Plus there were zombies!! Who doesn’t love zombies? Ok maybe the folks in the TV shows, don’t but still.

First of all if you haven’t read Zeus is Dead…. yet, you better go do that FIRST! Plus I hear that Michael Munz put it on sale, so you get a win win!

In fact, here’s a link to Zeus is Dead. Go forth and read it first!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01GF5QWGE/

Now, my thoughts. See I’m not going to go into a ton of detail, because I would give too much away and I’m not an author, who is great at words. This is where I will start first. Michael Munz puts such amazing detail into this book that it’s an awesome visual trip for your mind.

So many new characters plus old favorites from the first book. (Again go read it if you haven’t)

With the gods back in this second book, they needed something to keep them busy. Why not a few zombies. There HAD to be a reason right? Well, there is. And it takes our friends Leif, Tracy and Athena without her powers, plus a few others to figure out what’s going on. But I’m giving the win to my girl Athena. She smart you see.

With strange things happening, Octoberfest and Athena having to travel as a human, you can bet you will laugh. Plus there’s Jerry…… I’ll pause and laugh here because you’ll see.

Honestly so much happens in this book. The new characters are a delight. The Cosmics and this weird Ryan guy who left me scratching my head. You’ll get it though.

I was overjoyed at being asked to read this before publication so I can give you my honest review. To sum it up, I loved it! The pictures painted in your mind make you wish you could binge watch it on Netflix. Let’s just call it mindflix!

So yes, if you’ve read Zeus is Dead, and enjoyed it. Grab Zeus is Undead!! Because it’s funnier AND it has ZOMBIES!

THE GODS ARE BACK. AGAIN. ALSO, ZOMBIES.

Sometimes all a fallen goddess needs to regain her power is a trusty sword and a worldwide zombie apocalypse…

Athena’s had a rough eighteen months. Formerly the goddess of wisdom, battle, and crafts, her divinity has been revoked. Zeus no longer trusts her, and a 7-foot ice cream sundae has usurped her position as his bodyguard. But when the dead start rising from the grave without authorization, things start looking up. What better way to prove her worth to Zeus than to solve the zombie problem?

Even so, it sure as Hades won’t be easy. No one knows why the dead are rising, why Zeus can’t eradicate them, nor why Australia remains zombie-free. Meanwhile, the Goddess of Strife is treating Athena like a chew toy. Worse, Leif and Tracy, two mortals whom the Muses insist be involved, refuse to help. If Athena can’t smack some sense into the situation, she may well become undead herself! (Also, global zombie domination, mortal extinction, no more football, et cetera. Bad stuff.)

Remembrance Cover Reveal – Heather Hildenbrand

I love the series that lead to this book from Heather Hildenbrand!!  I am excited to share this cover with you!! Check it out! Enter to win at the bottom of the page!
 

She’s the cure that could save him. If only she could remember how.

 

 

Two years ago, 20 year-old Samantha Knight experienced a life-altering trauma. Unfortunately, she can’t remember what it was. Previously outgoing, fun, and carefree—it’s as if someone flipped a switch on Sam’s insides. Now, she’s afraid of everything, socially awkward, and convinced she’s going crazy. As Beyonce would say, she woke up like this. Sam tries her best to juggle college classes, work, and the nosiest roommate ever, but behind the curtain, Sam’s life is all about keeping a firm grip on her own mind. And life is kicking her ass.

 

 

Alex Channing has only one enemy in this world: werewolves. Born and raised to fight in the supernatural military, he has become an expert at hunting and killing rabid werewolves. But when Alex is bitten and infected, he finds himself racing against a ticking clock for his own survival.

 

 

Alex’s search for a cure leads him finally to an oracle in a seaside town in California. And she gives him the reading of a lifetime. The key to his cure is a girl who forgets things, cries spontaneously, and might just be insane. And the only way she can save him is to do the one thing Alex knows is impossible: she has to remember.

Character Interview -Felix Hiatt

Hey gang! So sometimes authors let me borrow their characters for an interview. I haven’t done one in a while. However, I just finished, “A Memory in the Black” by Michael G. Munz. AND, he is letting me interview Felix Hiatt.  If you are TOTALLY unaware of WHO I am talking about you can find Felix in both “A Shadow in the Flames” and “A Memory in the Black”. Which you can buy HERE: http://michaelgmunz.com/new_aeneid/ I also hear he is in book 3, WHICH I will get to reading soon. Also, book 1, “A Shadow in the Flames” is currently FREE on ebook! So you might as well get started! 

 

So, enough of my rambling. Let’s get to Felix! 

 

Christina: Hi Felix! I am so glad you could spare a few minutes to talk with me! How are you doing today?

 

Felix: Disoriented! I mean, are you from a parallel universe? Am I? Are we both? Are there nachos? I’m not seeing any nachos, but it’s always smart to keep an eye out, just in case. (You know what the ancient Celts used to say: “Sometimes life gives you nachos.”) But otherwise I’m good, thanks! Excited to be here! Slightly caffeinated.

 

Christina:  Tell the readers of the blog a little about yourself.  You know, where you are from, favorite activity, favorite food, favorite planet, that sort of thing. 

 

Felix: Born in raised in Northgate, which you may not have heard of, though it’s a rather large metropolis in the Pacific Northwest. My favorite activity would have to be finding out things people don’t want me to know, especially if I’m being paid to do so. Some people have tried to call me a private investigator, but “information bounty hunter” has a much better feel to it. Favorite food? Phad Thai with shrimp, three stars, when I can get it. Favorite planet? Kepler 22-B. Or maybe Pluto. I’m glad they reclassified that one back in 2038.

 

Christina: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?

 

Felix: How about Area-51? I know it’s been over a hundred years since something was alleged to have crashed there, but there’s surely still some top secret stuff going on there, right? I mean, maybe. I never let myself get one hundred percent sure of anything, but I’d absolutely love to dive into that place and roll around in its secrets.

 

Christina:  Who do you get along with most out of your fellow book characters? 

 

Felix: That’s got to be a toss-up between Marc and Caitlin. I’ve known Marc far longer, of course, and he’s a great straight man for my joke-cracking. Plus we both share certain secrets about the AoA so I don’t have to censor myself along those lines. On the other hand, Caitlin shares my passion for investigating secrets, and is letting me kiss her for the past six months or so, so it’s hard to pick a clear winner! 

 

Christina: What is the WEIRDEST thing you have ever done?  I know there has to be SOMETHING  *smiles*

 

Felix: You mean in addition to taking part in an experiment that put a little implant behind my ear that contained the memories of a 75 year old donor? Because a lot of people might say that’s pretty weird. I also once dipped a chocolate chip cookie in jalapeno cheese dip.

 

Christina:  Felix, I find you hilarious and witty.  Do you find that those help in tense situations?  

 

Felix: You do? Oh, I’m sorry, you must have really poor taste. *winks* But yeah, I tend to crack a lot of jokes, or at least up the wiseass quotient when things get stressful. Sometimes it helps, but, honestly, sometimes it just makes things worse. After a bunch of navel-gazing, I realize it’s one of my coping mechanisms, and my filter doesn’t always keep me from saying something stupid or insensitive. But I can’t help it! Well, sometimes.

 

Christina:  Speaking of tense situations, what is the most harrowing situation you have ever been in?

 

Felix: Aside from what I wound up getting myself into with Caitlin up there at the Omicron Complex? Or, geez, what happened at the RavenTech facility in—well, I probably shouldn’t talk about that. Spoilers and all. Once, when I was a little younger and a lot more foolish, I walked right into the stronghold of some gun-running gangers (whose name I’d prefer not to mention) and tried to sell them some information on a competitor with nothing to protect me but my wits and a pair of mirrored sunglasses. They were less in the mood to pay me than they were to try to beat it out of me. Long story short, that wound up with me fleeing across some rooftops at the edge of worst part of Northgate wearing nothing but some boxer shorts and those aforementioned sunglasses.

 

Christina:  Ok I like to play This-or-That in my interviews with characters. So ready? Here we go.  Chicken or steak?

 

Felix: Steak.

 

Christina: Fruit or veggies?

 

Felix: Fruit, definitely. I have a sweet tooth. Though the fresh stuff is hard to come by in Northgate anymore.

 

Christina: Boots or sneakers?

 

Felix: For me? Sneakers. For sneaking! …And yes, I realize the irony of shouting the word “sneaking,” so no fair pointing that out.

 

Christina: Milk shake or smoothie?

 

Felix: Milk shake. Ha! How is this even a choice! Unless there’s milk and ice cream in that smoothie. And I should probably make a joke about a yard here, but I live in an apartment over a nightclub, so…

 

Christina: Wine or beer?

 

Felix: Neither, really. I’m not much of a drinker. But hey, drink eight glasses of water a day everyone! Kidney stones are a pain the ass. Er, figuratively speaking.

 

Christina: Michael or Gideon?

 

Felix: I’m going to need a bit more criteria for the choice here. Can you elaborate?

 

Christina: Which do you prefer working with?

 

Felix: Aha! No offense to Gideon, but the answer here is easily Michael. He’s a heck of a lot more stable. Granted, I can’t really blame Gideon himself for that. From what I understand of what he’s gone through—and been put through—I’m shocked he’s doing as well as he is, really. Plus Michael laughs at my jokes more.

 

Christina:  Well Felix, I think I have taken up enough time, I am so happy that you sat down and talked with me. This has been fun! Anything else you want to say before we go?

 

Felix: I know you haven’t gotten Star Wars Episode IX yet in your corner of reality, but damn, it’s absolutely incredible. You’re in for a real treat. “Dance Party Tatooine” won’t seem like a great title at first, but trust me, it grows on ya.
Thanks for having me here!

 

 

 

That was a super fun interview. Thank you, Michael Munz for letting me borrow Felix for a little bit.  

Hey Gang,  pop to the top of the post and grab the books. You will love them! 

Serengeti 2 – J.B. Rockwell

*dusts off cobwebs* WOW Hi Guys!!! What a better way to have a shinny new post than to share the release of Serengeti 2 by J.B. Rockwell!  WOOOHOOOOOO!!! I am excited about this!!  Lets get Started!

 

 

unnamed

ISN’T it  BEAUTIFUL?!!!

Blurb:
Fifty-three years Serengeti drifted, dreaming in the depths of space. Fifty-three years of patient waiting before her Valkyrie Sisters arrive to retrieve her from the dark. A bittersweet homecoming follows, the Fleet Serengeti once knew now in shambles, its admiral, Cerberus, gone missing, leaving Brutus in charge. Brutus who’s subsumed the Fleet, ignoring his duty to the Meridian Alliance to pursue a vendetta against the Dark Star Revolution.

The Valkyries have a plan to stop him—depose Brutus and restore the Fleet’s purpose—and that plan involves Serengeti. Depends on Serengeti turning her guns against her own.

Because the Fleet can no longer be trusted. With Brutus in charge, it’s just Serengeti and her Sisters, and whatever reinforcements they can find.

A top-to-bottom refit restores Serengeti to service, and after a rushed reunion with Henricksen and her surviving crew, she takes off for the stars. For Faraday—a prison station—to stage a jailbreak, and free the hundreds of Meridian Alliance AIs wrongfully imprisoned in its Vault. From there to the Pandoran Cloud and a rendezvous with her Valkyrie Sisters. To retrieve a fleet of rebels ships stashed away inside.

One last battle, one last showdown with Brutus and his Dreadnoughts and it all ends. A civil war—one half of the Meridian Alliance Fleet turned against the other, with the very future of the Meridian Alliance hanging in the balance.

If you have read the first installment in this book you should be squealing about now, and asking where do I get it??? Well, you can get it right here

Now lets learn about the amazing lady that wrote this book!

unnamed-2

http://www.jenniferbrockwell.com/

J.B. Rockwell is a New Englander, which is important to note because it means she’s (a) hard headed, (b) frequently stubborn, and (c) prone to fits of snarky sarcasticness. As a kid she subsisted on a steady diet of fairy tales, folklore, mythology augmented by generous helpings of science fiction and fantasy. As a quasi-adult she dreamed of being the next Indian Jones and even pursued (and earned!) a degree in anthropology. Unfortunately, those dreams of being an archaeologist didn’t quite work out. Through a series of twists and turns (involving cats, a marriage, and a SCUBA certification, amongst other things) she ended up working in IT for the U.S. Coast Guard and now writes the types of books she used to read. Not a bad ending for an Indiana Jones wannabe…

NOW, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO EXPERIENCE SERENGETI !!! 

A Dragon at the Gate – Release Day – Michael G. Munz

It’s Release Day for Michael G. Munz’s third installment of the new aeneid cycle, A Dragon at the Gate!  Following are a few details about the book. AND…. AND…. You can get the first two books for 99 cents!  Get started!!

 

unnamed-9

Michael Flynn has lost time. An operative in the worldwide conspiracy known as the Agents of Aeneas, the last thing he remembers is the struggle to retake Paragon—the derelict alien spacecraft found crashed on the Moon. Yet that was three months ago. Now, as he wakes in a hospital back in the high-tech, urban strife of Northgate, his struggle begins anew.

The Agents of Aeneas have vanished.

His friends are either missing, in danger, or altered. Hired killers shadow his every move. And Jade, the mysterious, cyber-enhanced woman watching over him, will give no answers. Thrust into a blind search for the truth, Michael needs allies. Yet whom can he trust when once loyal friends may have turned against him?

Meanwhile, an intelligence thought trapped within Paragon has escaped to Northgate. Driven to fulfill the goals of the mysterious “Planners,” it, too, seeks allies. When it finds them, it will transform the face of Northgate, the world, and the entire human race.

The year 2051 draws to a close, and nothing will be the same.

 

 

unnamed-10

What do other Authors say about A Dragon at the Gate?

“Not a book to read before bed unless you aren’t planning on going to sleep until sometime next week. Munz has a way of developing female characters that are believably badass and likable. I especially fell in love with the cybernetic implant technology. Damn it, now I want some glowing hair.”

—Tiffany Pitts, author of Double Blind

“In a time where so many stories are re-hashed sequels and re-boots, Munz has created some truly spectacular science fiction. The entire series delivers what it promises, and so much more. Every time I believed I knew what came next, I found myself very pleasantly surprised.”

—JM Guillen, author of The Paean of Sundered Dreams

 

NOW….. You’re excited to buy this RIGHT????? well here you go!!
