DINYB Blogfest!


You know what I noticed a few weeks ago? 

EJ Wesley's NA supernatural suspense, Blood Fugue. Talk about original cover art—wow! This book really stood out, and that's why I'm highlighting it now. 

As part of the Did I Notice Your Book blogfest, I’m giving EJ a public shout-out. Let’s see how long it takes him to find it! ;)



  About the book...  

“'Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted.'

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried.

Life has pummeled her heart into one big, lonely callus. She has no siblings, both parents were dead by sixteen, and her last grandparent—and caretaker—was in the ground before she turned twenty-one. She’s the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thinks…

'We found my ‘grandfather’ sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I’d seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them.'

Suddenly, instead of burying it with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it."

That is a very cool cover. Thanks for sharing.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I hadn't noticed EJ's book, but I certainly am now. Very unigue, eye-catcher. "Hey, EJ, Carrie's noticed your book!" You mean that kind of shout out, eh?

cleemckenzie said...

Stopping to find out what book you noticed! Great job at picking a good one out. Sounds delightfully erie. Perfect for October.

E.J. Wesley said...

GET OUT!!! I've just been working my way through the DINYB list, posting waaayyyyy too lengthy comments for someone trying to get through them all before noon and--WOOMP! There I am! :-D *cue obscure 90s song reference*

Seriously didn't expect to see me pop up today, and it made me giggle like a schoolboy.

Carrie, I'd seriously hug you if I didn't fear electrical shock from squeezing the computer. You're the best! I'm going to go and gloat over Alex's soon. :-)

Sherry Ellis said...

I did notice EJ's cover last month. Very cool! I see he noticed!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Wow. Sounds like quite the book. And that cover is deep. The more you look at it, the more sinister it gets.

Melissa said...

If you haven't read it, you're missing a good story. ;)

Yolanda Renee said...

Livia said...

I have heard of this book around the blogosphere before so the title is definitely familiar to me. Not my type of read, though. Very cool cover!

Carrie Butler said...

Couldn't hurt! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Same here! If my TBR list consisted of physical books, I'd probably be featured on Hoarders. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Yeah! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Oo, I could see that! :)

Carrie Butler said...

I agree. :)

No problem, Susan! Thank you for stopping by!

The Golden Eagle said...

Thanks for posting about this my dear!

Morgan said...

Eeeeee!!!!! EJ rocks! And I've read his stuff and he is uber talented. Fantastic highlight, Carrie! ;)

Carrie Butler said...

I will not get out, Mr. Wesley. This is my blog, and I intend to stay here. *Grins* Yeah, I'm going to pretend I didn't just do a little dance to that.

You're very welcome! I was happy to feature you. :D

Carrie Butler said...

He sure did! Thanks for stopping by, Sherry. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Good point, Donna! It does seem to gain depth the more you stare at it. :)

Lynda R Young said...

This is so great to see EJ's book here. Very cool!

Carrie Butler said...

Carrie Butler said...

I think it's one of those images you could see a dozen times and still see new details the next time you look at it. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Michael! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Nick Wilford said...

It's a striking cover. I've seen it around too and I want to read this! I get totally absorbed just in EJ's blog posts, so I'm sure his writing is incredible.
