Uncanny Quarry Round Robin!!!

Hey guys! So I've been mentioning the scavenger hunt for a little bit now! In case you haven't yet checked out the official site, here is what's said on the about page:

Join us for a week of fun and prizes! Find your next great read! It’s a scavenger hunt that will introduce you to new authors and amazing stories.
Uncanny Quarry is a literary scavenger hunt primarily focused on authors who write paranormal and fantasy stories. It will take place October 18th-25th, 2015. The event will be hosted on Facebook.
Throughout the week of the hunt, scavengers will be asked questions that they will have to answer about each author/blogger and their books. The answers to the questions can be found at the author or blogger’s site. Links will be provided with the questions. Watch for the blue Uncanny Quarry lantern on participating sites. 
There are 37 authors and 2 bloggers providing questions and clues for the hunt. On each of the first 7 days of the hunt, questions from 5 authors will be released. Scavengers will have to go to those authors’ sites and find the answers. Write down all the answers because on the last day of the hunt, the last 4 sets of questions will be released and then a link will be posted leading to a Google form. The form will have one question from each author/blogger. The first person to fill out the form with all the correct answers will win the grand prize. There will also be a 2nd and 3rd prize for the next two people to submit a complete and correct form.  If no one gets all the correct answers, then the winners will be based on the most correct answers. ** 
Some days all of the authors’ questions will be posted on the Facebook event page. Other days there will be a Round Robin. That means that the first of five author’s questions will be posted on the Facebook page. When scavengers arrive at the first author’s site they will find a link to the 2nd author’s site. So scavengers will have to look for the links to all the authors’ sites as they look for answers on each author’s page.
The second author for today’s Round Robin of Uncanny Quarry is Lisa Barry. Here are her questions.
1. Go to and find The Guardians by Lisa Barry. Open the “Look Inside” and go to Chapter 5. Read the first two paragraphs. What coffee was ordered?
2.  Go to Lisa’s Author Page (Goodreads or Amazon and read her Bio. Who listens carefully when Lisa reads aloud?
3.  Go to Lisa’s Facebook page ( In the image at the top, what is the tag line?

Here's the link to her site:

Bone Deep Release! (Giveaway News!)

It's October! Which means it's the month for Bone Deep! A release date has been set and it's next Saturday, aka, 10/10! Keep checking back because I'll be posting the link to the buy page directly here as soon as it's up for sale! For those of you I've promised review copies to, they'll be coming sometime before the end of next week! :) There's a giveaway for this as well!!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

If anyone else is interested in Read 2 Review, please message me privately on my account, here: I do have a couple extra review copies I'm willing to give out, so if interested do let me know!

I did a cover reveal a while back, so you've all probably seen it before, but here it is again to the left! I've also mentioned a few times that this book is written in a slightly different style than many of you are used to (those of you who've read me before, anyway) so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did writing it! If you haven't checked out the blurb, you can do so by hitting up the Upcoming page link at the top left, or by scrolling down to an earlier blog post. It's been posted a few times so not going to repeat it again right now to save space.


That huge giveaway is still going on!!! We're dipping into month two, and there's only until December to sign up for a chance to win one of six different awesome prize packs! Each hold different items which are all listed in the previous post, but a few of these things are paperback books, jewelry, stickers, bags, etc. There's a different prize pack for each of the new books I'm releasing during the E.E.R.Y.W, and because of this in order to qualify to win YOU HAVE TO COMMENT WHICH PRIZE YOU WOULD LIKE if you won. This can be either on this post, or the one prior with all the details. I know having to sign in in order to post a comment is tedious, but these items cost money and there are a lot of them. I don't want to end up sending someone a pack they have no interest in getting. That would suck for you and for whoever really wanted it and ended up not getting it. There are a bunch of other ways to enter as well, including leaving a question for a character in the Ask Away section! This can be done multiple times, which means more chances to win! You can also answer a few questions about my book Unhinged, which is currently being offered for FREE in honor of this giveaway! It can be found here:
