Surviving A Redeemer: Guest Post by O’Dell Hutchison + Giveaway!

Posted by 9 Comments

I’m very happy to welcome O’Dell Hutchison on the blog today after the release of his newest book, Fingers in the Mist. I had the chance to read this way back before it got published and I loved it! If you love horror this one is not to be missed! Here’s a bit more about the book, and then O’Dell will tell us how doomed we all are!

Sixteen-year-old Caitlyn Foster never believed in the legend of the Redeemers. That was before the trees started to whisper her name. Before a murder of crows attacked the town. Before she and her family came home to find a bloody handprint on their front door, marking one of them as a sacrifice. As Caitlyn’s friends are ripped from their homes, she knows it’s only a matter of time before the Redeemers come for her. Caitlyn has the power to stop the terror, but she’ll have to decide if she’s willing to sacrifice herself to save those she loves.

Surviving in the Face of a Redeemer… or Not.

The normal, everyday Joe would not be able to survive a Redeemer. In fact, until Caitlyn came along, no one has ever (to the knowledge of the townsfolk of Highland Falls) been able to survive them. The rules are simple:

    1. First of all, stock up on nonperishable food and lots of water. You’ll need it.
    2. The Redeemers select seven people from the town as sacrifices. If your house isn’t marked with a bloody handprint, congratulations! The amount of terror your family will face is limited over the next week. The most you’ll have to deal with is staying in your house without running water and electricity for the next seven days. No internet, no TV, no cell phones, but you get to live. Provided you…
    3. Stay in your house. No matter what, you cannot step outside during the lockdown period. If you do, you’re fair game. Even if your family wasn’t selected and you decide to take a stroll in the fog (because, you know YOLO and all that craziness), you’re dead. Done. Shredded by Redeemer claws. Your soul sucked out your ear and your body pulverized. Sound fun? Didn’t think so. Stay in your house!
    4. If your family was selected, well, my condolences to you and yours. There’s really nothing I, or anyone else, can do for you. When they come to take their sacrifice, let them do what they came to do. Don’t go after them! You can’t stop them. You can’t save your family member. You’ll end up dead as well. (See #3 above).

I know. It sucks. There’s basically no hope for the families of those selected. I mean, they can pray for the Redeemers to take the annoying drunk uncle, or the drama-causing aunt, but, that isn’t how it’s gone down in the past. They always seem to take the kids. Some say it’s because of something, or someone, called Malahas, but that’s just an old Native American legend. Right? If I were you, I wouldn’t bother trying to find out. Follow the rules… unless, of course, your name is Caitlyn Foster. If that’s the case, go on with your crazy self. You possess something special, something that just might put an end to this terror… if it doesn’t end you first.

As always, thanks for having me on the blog, Giselle! You rock.

Blog Tour: The Tragic Age by Stephen Metcalfe – Review and Giveaway

This book was very refreshing. The MC was such a fabulous voice and I really liked reading this from his POV. While I didn’t always like the character, he was really wonderful and I felt for him. I loved the writing and how he would be telling us something and create a scenario, then tell us that wasn’t what really happened. It was entertaining. He was bright and creative.

Billy was one of those characters that you really feel. He is not the stereotypical rich kid at all. In fact, he doesn’t really care about any of that and he sometimes thinks things would be easier if he was not the child of rich parents. Not to mention the death of his sister that is a constant ache for…

Penny, Jasmine, and Indy are back in all their wonderful glory! Losing at Love is the sequel to Game. Set. Match. which I completely loved when I read it 2 years ago. And even though so much time has past since, I was easily taken back into the world of tennis and competitions and romance and drama. This novel is more character than plot driven – the later doesn’t progress all that much, but the friendships and personal goals do, which are just as important for the story to move forward.

All in all, this novel is a character driven drama about these girls’ complicated lives as Tennis pros. Don’t let this scare you off, however, I know squat about that sport, and I was completely captivated by the…

This lovely lady visited the blogs during the holidays, and I’m happy to have her back again as part of the blog tour! Here’s a bit of info on the book, first, in case you missed out on this creepy read:

Guest Post by Courtney Alameda


I do a lot of on-site research for my novels, when possible. While I was writing Shutter, I visited the San Francisco Bay Area no fewer than five times, jumped a fence to take pictures of the underside of the Golden Gate Bridge, ducked inside St. Mary’s Hospital to hide from a gang that had been tailing me through the neighborhood (no joke), stood toe-to-edge atop the abandoned…

What NOT to do if you meet a devil

If you meet a devil, I would advise against giving him snacks.

(That is, of course, assuming the devil you meet is a “he”. If you meet a female devil, nothing can help you. Just sit back, let her disembowel you, and call it a day.)

If you give a devil a Cheez-It, it won’t end there. He’ll want Cheetos. He’ll want Fritos. He’ll want…

What Inspires Us The question “how do you come up with your ideas” is hands down the most frequent question we stumble across when talking to readers. As much as we’d love to say “from the corner mart,” the real answer is that inspiration comes from everywhere. It comes from…
