Booklist–the book review publication of the American Library Association–reviewed Embracing the Demon. They called it:
A page-turning mix of romantic suspense and supernatural thriller.
The review is behind a pay wall, but I do recommend you check out Booklist Online if you have a chance, because they’ve got a lot of cool articles and book recommendations.
This is the big time, guys!
Quick admin note: The winners of the Embracing the Demon blog tour giveaway have been selected. I have not been given permission to publish their names, so I will not do so here. However, I have e-mailed the three of them to let them know that I sent the books out in the mail today.
Each of the winners will receive a signed copy of The Demon Within, the first book in the Dale Highland series.
Congratulations to each of the winners, and thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway and followed my blog tour!
In case you were still debating whether to read Embracing the Demon or not, eminent sci-fi/fantasy reviewer Zombie Joe has reviewed it over at Qwillery. Go check it out.
As for the story as a whole, it was definitely worth the wait. An excellent addition to her ongoing narrative. The ending alone sold me on the book, but to tell you too much would be to give away the experience. As I finished the last page, I definitely found myself already starting the countdown to the next in the series.
I’m going ahead to give this one 4.5 demons out of 5. Not the perfect storm, by damned near close to it.
I’m preening. I’m seriously preening. Thank you to Zombie Joe for the amazing review!
Well guys, we’ve come to the end of the road. It’s officially the last day of the Embracing the Demon book tour.
Once again, I’d like to thank Roxanne Rhoads of Bewitching Book Tours for putting this together. Bewitching Book Tours really has been awesome, and I highly recommend them to anyone in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance realm looking for a blog touring company.
These last few days have been crazy busy…
I guest blogged at Urban Fantasy Investigations talking about what kind of playlist you’d put together if you found out you were a demon and having a bit of existential angst about it.
I also guest blogged at Fang-Tastic Books talking about some of the coolest “fantasy” places that exist right here in the real world!
My piece about my creepy stay at Greensboro’s most haunted hotel–the night I got felt up by a dead prostitute–was shared on All Things Halloween.
And Dale Highland herself came out of hiding to do a blog about how to survive life on the run over at Rose Shababy.
I also did an interview over at The Book Junkie Reads about whether writing is an ingrained process or something that can be learned, future creative projects, and how I’d spend a week with Jessica Fletcher to prove that she really is a cold-blooded killer…
Embracing the Demon was also featured on Sapphyria’s Books, Lisa’s World of Books, T’s Stuff, and Ramblings of a Book Nerd.
And even though the tour is over, you can still enter the giveaway for another 27 hours (which I think equates to 11:59pm Eastern Time tomorrow, July 3.) If you visit any of these amazing websites, you can enter the giveaway through Rafflecopter.
