Darkness Comes

Kelling Gay has introduced her alter-ego, Kelly Keaton, via Facebook. Kelly  Keaton will be debuting on February 22, 2011 with her novel, Darkness Becomes Her, the first novel in the new Gods & Monsters series.  There will be a second novel that will follow in 2012 and we can only hope there’ll be a third as well.  Here’s what Kelly has to say about Darkness Becomes Her:

Darkness Becomes Her, (Gods & Monsters, Book 1), in which a hardened teen on the run searches for the truth about her monstrous heritage with a group of misfit kids in a post-apocalyptic New Orleans, a city state now run by the creatures of the night.

There’s a new Eclipse movie poster out and this time it features Xavier.  I do have to say, I love the walking-through-water look (via BSC Review).

Jaime Rush Contest

Jaime Rush recently stopped by Literary Escapism and was sweet enough to give away a copy of Touching Darkness to one lucky winner.  In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: Do you have a secret activity? If not, what wild activity would you do if you weren’t worried about getting hurt/caught?.  Now, without further ado, the winner is:

DAWN D who said: I don’t have one because I am disabled but if I could do anything I think I would probably go rock climbing. That was an excellent question! It really took a LOT of thought and even then, I don’t know for sure if that’s the complete answer because there are so many things I would probably like to try at least once before settling on a single activity.

Congratulations Dawn! Please email me at myjaxon AT gmail with your info and we’ll get your prize mailed out.

As always, I determined the winners by inputting all the entries into the List Randomizer, scrambling it up a couple of times, and then had the Research Randomizer pick a number.

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
