Well, I ordered the bloody book right after it was selected as the inaugural selection for the Indie Author Book Selection & Review (that’s a lot of selections in one sentence).
And after I did I joked with Melissa Barker-Simpson (Mel to her friends and cool people like me) about how she, living in the United Kingdom, practically lived at the end of the universe.
Little did I know how right I was. Well, at least based upon the number of days it took for the book to arrive – nearly two weeks – it seems that it may very well have been dispatched from the end of the universe.
Anyway, it’s finally here and I am really really really excited to begin reading it. But before I begin, I was thinking that it would be fun to do a little reveal sequence of the book…you know, kind of in the spirit of those tech nerd reveals that all those cool tech nerds like to do whenever they get all giddy over their latest tech nerd toy that they just received.
So, without further ado, I introduce to you my introduction to author Melissa Barker-Simpson’s novel HANDS OF EVIL…
Well, how about that… I finally have a book to read. And to be honest, I’m pretty frikkin’ excited about it.
And I’m so grateful to Mel for participating in the book selection thing. So grateful, in fact, that I invited her to contribute a Guest Post to talk a little bit about herself and her writing process. That will be following right behind this post so please check it out and then check out Mel’s site afterwards. I think you’ll find that she has really built a solid author’s platform for herself. She really is a very impressive person and I am proud to now be able to call her a friend.
So off I go to immerse myself in a new adventure, courtesy of Mel and her labor of love, the novel HANDS OF EVIL.
Oh yeah…since I am now…finally…reading my new Current Read, I think it’s time we start thinking about our next Indie Author Book Selection & Review. I’m up for another one if you are!
