Sir Poops and Hair Ball Host The Secondhand Shoes Cover Reveal and Something Borrowed Giveaway

 

IMG_0485

Today, we’re doing another cover reveal for Mummy’s book, Secondhand Shoes. Mummsy says we’re giving away three books from the Twilight Series and eight books from the House of Night Series. They’ve already been read. It goes with the something borrowed theme. We’ve got pictures below so you can see what you’ll win. They’re both YA/Crossovers about vampires of a different kind.

3 books from the Twilight Series

 

8 books from the House of Night Series

Hair Ball is willing to throw his most prized possession in, too. The ball.

In order for your name to be put in the drawing you must promise to Tweet, Facebook, and Google +1 this and leave a comment in the box that you did so along with your email, which series you would like, and what you borrowed on your wedding day to wear down the aisle. And I hope they weren’t secondhand bridal shoes that didn’t fit like Mummsy’s MC, Lila.

There will be no rafflecoptors or anything like that. Mummsy is pretty much a self-admitted-techno-moron.

Next Friday, October 19th, she will reveal the two winners for the series over at Secondhand Shoes, A Novel

So here is Mummsy’s purdy book cover made by Collin Beishir at Beishir Media.

***

The shoes didn’t fit. It was an omen. Secondhand_Shoes[1]

Eighteen year old psychic-medium-germ-a-phobe Lila should have listened to ghostly Gram’s advice the morning of her wedding, “Take off that dress and those shoes. And run.”

En route to the honeymoon, she decides to listen after too many disagreements with her groom. It doesn’t pay to go along to make everyone happy.

Still in her wedding dress and shoes, she escapes out a diner’s bathroom window into the Florida woods despite her fear of snakes and germs with her ghostly Gram’s direction.

So she begins a journey of finding her inner strength that puts her on a deadly run from her psychotic groom and his deranged friends.

Will she ever get past her fear of germs and snakes? Will she survive her honeymoon?

***

I picked Tonja and Siv.We also want to thank the bloggers who agreed to help our Mummsy out today:

Roland @ Writing in the Crosshairs

Tonja @ Tonja's Musings

Michelle @ Writer in Transit

Siv @ Been There, Done That

Norma @ Beishir Books

So we’re drawing two names today for two 10 dollar Amazon cards. We wished we could pick everybody. We really do because you guys are all really nice people.

I picked Tonja and Siv. 

And Hair Ball picked, Tonja and Siv out of the bowl. We thank everyone for stopping by. And we wanted you all to be on the lookout for Mummsy’s book.  We’ll be hosting a booktour for her soon. We’ll keep you posted.

Also, E.J. Wesley’s, Bury the Hatchet blogtour  isn’t over until October 19th. Go check him out at The Open Vein

Francine over at Stitching Words has released her novel, Still Rock Water.

Monday, Hair Ball and I will be hosting the Paranorm Blogtour here for Gwen Gardner and Angela Brown.

Lots of licks,

Sir Poops and Hair Ball

  5. Sorry NO sparkly women controlling, stalker vampires for me. Absolutely despise the Twilight series. For me they are bad writing and bad message for young girls/women. But great for someone else, just not me.
    But....
    I would love to read your book it sounds wonderful and Collins cover is fabulous as usual.
    Will it be on Amazon ?
    Hair Ball is very sweet to add his favorite ball into the drawing. Hamish has a favorite lime green ball !
    They look so darling helping with the drawing. Very talented doggies.

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Having had already read it, I can say it's a good one. Shelly, you've done well! Lila is a strong character who comes into her own as the book goes along.

  7. Great cover and can't wait until your announcement of this final acheivement in your long held dream, Shell!

    And if you pick me out of the bowl--or HB or Sir Poops does--I'd rather have the House of Night series, if that's possible. I read the first book in the series and thought it was pretty good.
    Thanks!

  14. Count me in. I've already read the Twilight series but would like the House of Night series. That's sweet, but I'd also let Mumsy keep his ball. On my wedding day, I borrowed a white garter from my sister.

  15. Have you actually told Hair Ball about his generosity? I wouldn't like to be you if you haven't.

  16. Hope this has all gone well for you, Shelly! Scarlett and Jame will be happy to feature Secondhand Shoes on their blog before they embark on their latest adventure....

  17. Second Hand Shoes sounds like a perfect blend of Paranormal with an interesting contemporary theme. I wish you much success. I don't FB or tweet, so I don't need to be in the drawing, but my best "good like" vibes are headed your way. :-)
