Book Tour & Giveaway (US/Int): Something Witchy this way comes!


If you’re a regular here on GraveTells, you know we support authors of all publication types… self, indie, and the big houses. We believe that where a book is published doesn’t matter nearly as much as the skill, creativity, and dedication of its author and editing team. When I stumbled on the work of author Sara King earlier this year, I found myself immediately drawn to her vivid imagination and the compelling depth of her characters and settings. Ms. King could easily have gone the traditional publishing route, but is prolific enough that many of her stories likely wouldn’t have seen the light of day through one of the bigger houses, so she decided to strike out on her own and has an impressive collection of excellent work to show for it. She recently helped found Parasite Publications and is excited to announce the Mystics & Mayhem young adult series by a stellar new author. Ms. King’s resounding endorsement of AJ Myers makes us excited to take a closer look at Something Witchy, and we think you’ll like it too. Enjoy!

My name is Ember Blaylock. Welcome to the World of Weird—better known as my life.

It wasn’t always like this. I was once a normal high school senior, just filling out college apps and trying to stay sane long enough to get out of Moonlight, Missouri. Preferably before I ended up in a straight-jacket out of sheer boredom.

At first, my only problems were my increasingly unwanted ability to see the dead and my desperation to remove the stalker known as my ex-boyfriend from my life. Somewhere along the line I must have pissed off the Bad Karma Fairy. Maybe I stepped on the wrong toadstool or peed in Loki’s personal swimming pool—I really don’t know. All I do know is I’m about to have the worst week of my life. Maybe the worst week of any teenager’s life. Ever.

All because of a dead guy.

From the second pale, too-hot-to-be-real Nathan Ashley stepped out of the wreckage of his mangled sports car, my life spiraled into complete and utter chaos. One minute, I’m quasi-normal, the next I’m being kidnapped by a vampire, I’m having weird, creepy powers sprout up out of nowhere, and I’m running from a demon who wants to get more familiar with my anatomy…or kill me. Again. Yeah, did I mention he’s done it before?

Anybody know if those straight-jackets come in pink?

About Parasite Publications

Parasite was founded by a group of publishing pros who left the stagnating traditional publishing industry to ride the wave of the Electronic Revolution. We honestly believe that there’s a better way of publishing, and that Amazon and ventures like it are the answer to the sprawling corporate behemoths that have spent thirty years doing their best to turn authors into a number on a balance-sheet. We’re bringing the character back into publishing one author (and thousands of rabid fans) at a time. You can get more information on our mission by checking out our Facebook page here.

A. J. Myers is one of the MANY extremely talented authors out there who, for some twisted act of Fate, never got picked up by Traditional Publishers, despite having multiple agents slobbering at her heels. We feel extremely lucky to have found her and taken her on board with Parasite.
