Need some convincing? Here are just of the some recent book reviews of Darkhouse:
“Darkhouse turned out unlike anything I’d expected. It drew me in from page one, with its easy-to-relate to, flawed but loveable characters, its fast pace, the unpredictable plot twists and its eerie, surreal atmosphere. If you’re searching for the scariest book of this season, then search no more. Darkhouse is exactly what you’re looking for” — I Heart Reading
“Darkhouse by Karina Halle has to be the first book in many years to make me glad to be reading during the day. It was creepy, exciting, hilarious and down right one of the most entertaining books that made me want to hug my pillow ” — Seeing Night Reviews
“A creepy lighthouse on the Oregon coastline was the perfect setting for this story. Karina Halle left no detail behind and I felt as though I could feel the ocean spray and smell the musty rooms as she led me deeper into the scene” — Fade Into Fantasy
“Darkhouse, when you read the synopsis, seems like a typical thriller. But it is so much more. It is creepy, funny (believe it or not), very suspenseful and yes, thrilling. While much of the book is about Perry, her new partner Dex, and their haunted encounters at the lighthouse, Darkhouse is just as much about the perplexing relationship between the troubled duo” — Bookish Babes
“Enter Perry Palomino’s world and expect to be riveted to your seat with the creepy story with paranormal overtures. This book was a mesmerizing read” — Earth’s Book Nook
All of that for just 0.99? You can’t beat it
It’s the strange time of the year for me where I don’t know what to do with myself. On August 17th, at 2AM, I finished writing Book #4, LYING SEASON. I was a bit of a wreck about it. This book really had me connecting to the characters, way more than normal. Like a crazy amount. And I was feeling every thing they were. It’s been a topsy-turvy emotional rollercoaster for me…and of course for Perry and Dex.
It’s the longest book by far, and is fully-loaded with extra toppings. Lots of answers, lots more questions. The character growth took me by surprise and most of the book wrote itself, which was a wonderful ride for me as an author. It’s by far my favorite book and the one I am most proud of (not that I’m not proud of all of them). But it’s really special to me. And the ending…well, let’s just say a very strong part of me is begging me to continue right onto Book Five.
I do feel I deserve a bit of a break…some days on Lying Season I was pulling 12 hours (note to self: writing for 12 hours straight will SERIOUSLY MESS YOU UP). And I have a whole stack of books to read, that I want to read:
–I just finished City of Bones. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.
–Finish the last half of the last Dark Tower Book (reluctant to, since I’ll miss Roland and his ka-tet when it’s over)
Then its Clash of Kings, Divergent, Across the Universe, Starcrossed, Ysabel, Horns, The Iron King, Harry Potter #1 and Hunger Games…though who knows what order I’m doing this in!
Anyway, so that’s all the reading I have to do (well, WANT to do). But something tells me the pull to start on Book #5 might be too great. Who knows.
The aforementioned Lying Season will be released on November 13th, 2011 (one month after Dead Sky Morning is released).
The book won’t be released until October 13th, but for the next month I’m running a giveaway through GoodReads for five signed copies of the book. If you win, you get DSM a whole month ahead of everyone else…and for free! I actually just won a book myself the other day (exciting!) so it’s proof that people do win things
Aside from the GoodReads, I’ll be having a giveaway for my Facebook fans, which involves your choice of a Team Dex or Team Perry (ideally you’d want both) shirt and all three books. I’ll keep you posted for when that runs.
Two giveaways going on at GoodReads for Darkhouse (TEN COPIES!) and Red Fox (the latter ends on August 12th and the former on the 13th) so get cracking.
I’ll also be doing a giveaway through my Facebook Fan Page for Experiment in Terror (check sidebar—> become a fan!) and this is going to be massive. Oh yes. It will most likely include paperback copies of Darkhouse, Red Fox and an ARC of Dead Sky Morning PLUS either a Team Dex or a Team Perry shirt/tank top. Now, Dex and Perry are on the same team, don’t get me wrong. But I first had the idea for the Team Dex shirt because so many people are always ragging on the poor guy. So when I got a Team Dex shirt last week (see below), people then had requests for a Team Perry shirt. Come on…everyone is on Team Perry. She doesn’t need a shirt. But I’ll do it anyway because it’s a giveaway and I like you guys. But I won’t do a Team Jenn shirt. That’s just pushing it.
Anyway, stay tuned for that giveaway, as well as a Dead Sky Morning ARC giveaway through GoodReads over the weekend.
With the Experiment in Terror show finding some success, amateur ghosthunters Perry Palomino and Dex Foray embark on their most terrifying investigation yet. A tiny, fog-shrouded island in the rough strait between British Columbia and Washington State has held a dark secret for decades. At the turn of the century it was used as a leper colony where over forty souls were left to rot, die and bury each other. Now a functioning campground, Perry and Dex spend an isolated weekend there to investigate potential hauntings but as the duo quickly find out, there is more to fear on D’Arcy Island than just ghosts. The island quickly pits partner against partner, spiraling the pair into madness that serves to destroy their sanity, their relationship and their very lives.
What a scary and sexy cover, right? Perfectly encapsulates the third book in the Experiment in Terror Series. Scary, sexy and seductive.
Book #3, Dead Sky Morning, is out October 13th, 2011 with advanced review copies available in mid-August. There will be some giveaways soon for this book as well, so stay tuned!
Hey everyone. Whew. I am exhausted. After three nights covering three different shows (Soundgarden and QOTSA) in three different cities, taking three different sets of photos and having to write three different reviews…I’m a little tired. Fantastic, unbelievable weekend but I often forget that the work starts AFTER the fun is over. Oh well, I’ve been going through photos I took of Chris Cornell and Josh Homme for days, so I am definitely not complaining. Here are some of my favorites:
Anyway, speaking of a Red Fox, I’m doing a giveaway through GoodReads:
I’m giving away four paperback copies to anyone in North America. Super easy to enter so just click to win!
Also, Red Fox was chosen as part of Teaser Tuesday on The Bookish Babes. Great teaser too, I must say. Check it out HERE.
