January Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway

January Author in the Spotlight Wrap-Up + Giveaway

Lies Beneath Giveaway Ends at midnight tonight!!  Enter quick!

The weather is super cold here in January with below zero temps.  It is the perfect time to read and snuggle by the fireplace.  So if you haven't read Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown, now is the perfect time.  I was down and out with a sinus infection and fever that kept me in bed and I spent my relaxation time reading Lies Beneath.  It was great!

Today is the last day to win a copy of Lies Beneath here:  Lies Beneath Giveaway

Please check out my book review of Lies Beneath.  Lies Beneath is the first novel in a trilogy and I am looking forward to the next two books.  Brown is a talented writer who crafts a imaginative story.  Brown includes Victorian poetry and Native American legends of mermaids. Seriously who can resist mermaids in Lake Superior.  These are not your sweet singing merfolk, these are murderous revenge seeking mermaids.  So much fun to read.

Lies Beneath Book Review

Please check out Anne Greenwood Brown's guest post.  She has written a thoughtful post on what makes a hero.  She talks about how she formed her main character Calder White with the qualities of what a hero means to her.  Very interesting.
