Try Not to Die: In Brightside by Mark Tullius
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

MORE THAN TWO DOZEN WAYS TO DIE…
Guess who found almost every single one?!

I found this scrolling through the Horror section on AudioBooksUnleashed. I already know that I like Mark Tullius, so that part is a no brainer. I saw the word ‘Interactive’ and my eyes lit up, my ears twitched…then I saw ‘Choose -Your-Own-Adventure..” I made a weird little ‘eiieeee!!! ::clapclapclap::’ sound, and I was redeeming my code before I could even figure out what the Hell that weird noise that just came out of my mouth was.
I had already started the book when I realized that I missed the part where this is BOOK TWO.in the series! Oh well, it’s good so far, let’s keep on truckin’.
I don’t think that the fact I died seven times by chapter twelve had anything to do with me skipping Book One. By the time I finished trying not to die In Brightside, I had died twenty times. I gotta chalk that up to poor impulse control, and bad decision making.
I’m hooked now though. I’m trying to decide if I should go back and read Book 1 now, or search the earth to see if Book Three is available because I’m starting to develop an eye twitch trying to figure out what is going to happen next!
It’s narrated by Maxine Denis. I don’t think I’ve listened to anything else she has narrated, but I think she did a great job here. An audio book can die from it’s narrator – I’ve shelved quite a few. This was really good, and I hope she stays throughout the series.

Until next time… Stay Healthy! Be Safe, Not Scared.

Tonia Brown – a Triple Shot of Quirky!

Isn’t it weird how life happens sometimes? I was just thinking about Tonia, and how everyone and everything was back when all this was new. Zombie Fiend’s Joy Killer introduced us, Tonia gifted me a copy of LUCKY STIFF… everything else – kismet!

Tonia Brown – Author

I was thinking about her Author Interview, and how I need to get cracking on Coffee Talk again, and BAM – I’m punched in the face with some free audio book codes for Tonia. See?! IK,R?! Fucking kismet!!

Tonia was cool enough to come hang out in my pillow fort for a little while, long enough to enjoy a cup of coffee, and answer a few questions… the first one being “How do you like your coffee?” To which she replied, “I like my coffee like I like my men. Ground up and in the freezer.” Buckle up boys & girls…things are about to get weird!

Exerpt from Coffee With Tonia Brown

The only things I know for sure about upcoming author interviews are 1. The style isn’t going to change. It will be tweaked, but I’m sticking to my goal, staying myself – F bombs and all, and YES, A LIGHTNING ROUND DOES TOO WORK FOR WRITTEN INTERVIEWS!! And, yes, people DO care about what kind of underwear their favorite author wears – THAT’S WHY THEY’RE GOING TO COME HERE! And #2. For the next interview I’m hoping for a round table / panel discussion co-authored with one of my fave extreme horror chickys, so… Stay tuned!!

About that audio book code… here’s the review for what I scooped up :

Triple Shot of StrangeTriple Shot of Strange by Tonia Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Since my original review was from March 13, 2012, and there isn’t an Audible edition listed here… it’s time to update!

I’ll meet you at the bar!
I can’t believe I had forgotten about Tonia Brown a little bit. I hate to pigeon hole anyone as anything, but I’m guilty of thinking ‘only zombies’, and I fell out of love with the genre a while back. It was a messy break-up but, I’m fine, really. Thanks.
I picked up Triple Shot of Strange (how I giggle every time I read the title! Innuendo is awesome), on audio and was so excited… I own the entire T3 collection and couldn’t wait to revisit Tonia’s World.
I would recommend this particular T3 to everyone. You get to get a nibble of her writing, and her style, and you’re guaranteed to fall in love 🖤 The three stories are fun, quick reads – listens in this case, and you’re left with a shudder and a smile. Tonia is active on social media, get to know her for a Triple Shot of Quirky, and I’ll meet you at the bar for the next round!

“Cawfee Tawk is an informal interview forum.”

Don’t forget to visit Coffee Talk and let me know what you think! Right this very second I’m just hoping that anyone remembers Mike Meyers as Linda Richman on SNL. I’m not old. You’re old. Shut up.

So, this has been my brain dump for now. Throwing out some ideas, see what you think about them, also to listen to what you want/need to see here. Yes, I was playing with my new editing program, but I gotta use it to learn it. I apologise if it gave you a headache 😬. I wanted to remind everyone that even with the new domain name, everything is the same – the old addresses still work, and will continue to. How do you prefer to review books – with a 5 star rating, or a 10 star rating? I thought 5 for books, 10 for movies, and make the rest up as I go along 😜 And if you don’t want to leave feedback in the comments (but I really wish you would!), you can shoot me an email at ShadowGirl@BeckisBookBlog.com PRETTY PLEASE START USING THE 5 STAR RATING THINGY ON EACH POST.. how else am I going to learn? Thanks!

Peace, Love & Necrophilia 💋 ~ sg
