HANDS OF EVIL – The Big Reveal!

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, by the looks of this photo, maybe it's me who lives at the end of the universe...

Well, well, well...it's about bloody time

And that there is the author. No, not the package, the website...well, the tiny picture on the website

And the back cover with a very intriguing synopsis about some Jonathan Jukes guy...I'm guessing he has something to do with the story. Not sure though...

Printed in Germany... How cool is that?! Yeah, I'm easily impressed, I admit.

Yep, It's legit all right weighing in at a ... huh? Wait a tick... No page numbers? Uh oh...I'm gonna be so confused.

Yep, It’s legit all right weighing in at a … huh? Wait a tick… I don’t know how many pages it weighs in at since it has no page numbers. Must be a European thing…

And no Table of Contents either. This scares me. It's like walking into the forest without breadcrumbs....

Pretty slick in all its style and sleekness, no? (Did that “no” make me sound European? I hope so…

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.

WRITE ON!

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!

    That is the best reveal/introduction I’ve ever had…the best in the known universe – I doubt anything will top it :-) It’s totally cool to have you as a friend (did that make me sound American – I hope it did!) :-)

    This is the coolest introduction I’ve ever had – probably the closest I’ll ever get to cool!
