Mara isn’t the same anymore—Zadie isn’t even sure she’s completely human, and to top it off, a Reaper is determined to collect Mara’s soul no matter what.

When dark forces lure Zadie to wander at night, she’s manipulated into committing unspeakable acts. With her friends and family at risk, Zadie must try to use her powers to break free from the Reaper’s grasp, or surrender to the Reaper’s Rite, which can only lead to death.

Welcome to this week’s Two for Thursday! #T4T presented by Month9books/Tantrum Books! And surprise this week we have 3 titles for you!
Today, we will be showcasing three titles that will tickle your fancy, and we’ll share what readers have to say about these titles! You just might find your next read!
This week, #T4T presents to you:
Title: Dead Jed:
Adventures of a Middle School Zombie
Author: Scott Craven
Pub. Date:
October 1, 2013
Publisher:
Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 214
Formats:
Paperback, eBook, audiobook
Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed’s not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being ‘different’ for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend’s sister’s birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his
parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.

From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully’s “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys’ room (Jed’s always losing body parts. Luckily, a good stapler and some duct tape and he’s back in the action) and a cigarette put in it and try to frame him for the recent reports of smoking in the school, Jed’s had enough and is ready to plan his revenge. Besides, it’s awesome what you can do when you’re already dead!
Title: Dead Jed 2: Dawn of the Jed
Author: Scott Craven
Publication date:
December 9, 2014
Publisher:
Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 266
Formats: Paperback,
eBook, audiobook
As the fall semester ends and kids head home on for winter break, Jed and his parents gather for the annual exchanging of gift lists. Once again, Jed asks for a dog, leading to a heated argument and a firm “no.” But when Jed spots a stray, he chases it until the dog darts into the street where it is struck and killed by a car. Grief stricken by what he’s done, Jed cradles the dead dog in his arms. Soon, ooze from the dog mixes with tear drops from Jed, creating Tread the zombie dog. Finally getting his wish, Jed must convince his parents to let him keep the undead dog. But a zombie dog turns out to be the least of Jed’s issues. Seems some parents don’t want Jed attending school with their kids. Enter the mysterious NZN Network. They’ve been distributing anti-zombie propaganda in an effort to get Jed expelled. But Jed wonders if the creation of Tread has caused his relationship
with Luke to sour. And why, just as he seems to need them the most, his best friends have abandoned him? Could they have bought in to the anti-zombie way of thinking? Was creating Tread a mistake Jed will live to regret? When Tread goes missing, and with his very existence at stake, Jed must rely on his instincts, team up with an old nemesis an fight for his right to have just as miserable a middle school existence as any other student – undead or alive.
Title: Dead Jed 3: Return of the Jed
Author: Scott Craven
Publication date:
December 15, 2015
Publisher:
Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 266
Formats: Paperback,
eBook, audiobook
With seventh grade behind him, Jed jumps at the opportunity to spend the summer in Mexico with his dad. But there’s just one catch: Luke and Tread get to tag along.
​In Mexico, fitting in​might be easier than Jed imagined, with Holidays such as Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)​.​ Here, a ​rising 8th grade zombie ​boy ​and his zombie dog ​won’t draw that much attention.
​But then Tread unwittingly sets off Mexico’s Chupacabra Defense Network and Jed accidentally collides with a bus​. So much for blending in. T​​he unusual pair catch the eye of a professional wrestler, who challenges ​Jed to a fight!​ ​
Their antics manage to ​capture the attention of a doctor​ who​se knowledge of the undead ​caus​es Jed to question his very existence. ​Is this the answer Jed’s been hoping for since his parents sat him down for the “you’re a zombie” talk? Jed may have finally found a way to be normal, but at what cost?
Dead Jed: Return of the Jed is book 3 in Scott Craven’s humorous and heartwarming series about surviving middle school, fitting in, and embracing one’s differences – even if you are a zombie.

Praise for the Dead Jed Series:
“Hilarious adventures of a zombie teen who navigates the jungle known as middle school,
this is one story that will resonate with readers.”  —YABooks Central


“If you know a middle-grader who loves to laugh or sometimes feels out of place and needs
some reassurance to be true to him/herself, this series is a must..”~ Dorothy Dreyer author of the Reaper’s Rite Series.
WHAT READER’S ARE SAYING:
Like its predecessor Dead Jed, Dead Jed 2: Dawn of the Jed is an incredibly cute and fun read! Aimed at middle graders, it’s filled with child-sized humor, puns, and adventure.”~ Books 4 Tomorrow
This story is a light fun read which will have you laughing in seconds. It is unique and quirky, where Zombie triumphs over evil. GO ZOMBIES! Wahoo!”~Once Upon A MoonlightReview

 

 

My love of zombie movies arrived long before my love for writing. I was 10 when I saw a girl about the same age sink her teeth into her father, a scene that hooked me on “Night of the Living Dead” and one the genre as a whole. I would embrace writing much later, but it has had a much more lasting impact. After graduating from Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, I packed the back of my Datsun B-210 and headed to Colorado, relying on the $600 my parents gave me as I walked out the door (“We don’t think this is the smartest move,” my father said as he handed me the cash, “but we’ll always be there for you.”) Over the next 35 years as a newspaper reporter, I would cover sports, crime, courts, travel and much more. I’ve spent nearly 30 of those years in Phoenix, and am now a features reporter at The Arizona Republic. My 18-year-old son Bryson has turned out to be a pretty cool kid, even though he dislikes reading and writing. When it comes time for him to find his own path, I may not think it’s the smartest move, but I will always be there for him.

Title: NOBODY’S GODDESS

Author: Amy
McNulty
Pub. Date: April
21, 2015
Publisher:
Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 274
Formats:
Paperback, eBook

In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.
Seventeen-year-old Noll isn’t in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.
Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman
versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness,
life and death—and neither is willing to lose.

Praise for NOBODY’S GODDESS:

“There are many terrestrial qualities to this 16th-century village, such as mountains, meadows,
forests, and lakes. But there are also hints of magic throughout . . . the story is fun and engaging, featuring a female protagonist who will resonate with young teens.”  —School Library Journal
 
“Wow. I appreciate this fantasy for what it is: detailed, unique, and just all round
amazing. It’s the kind of novel that keeps you guessing, and just when you think you’ve got the twist, something happens to throw you off course..”~ Melanie McFarlane author of the upcoming THERE ONCE WERE STARS & SUMMONER RISING.
WHAT READER’S ARE SAYING:
“It was something so unique and different that I found myself really enthralled with
the story. To the point that I almost had to blink myself out of a daze when I finished. “~ Jamie, Blogger @ Queenof The Bookshelves
“I would definitely recommend Nobody’s Goddess to anybody looking for a great fantasy
book with a plot that’s unlike anything I’ve read before. The characters and the world are all done incredibly well, and Amy’s talent with making words jump right off the page to tell the story is just fantastic. “~Ashley, Blogger @ TheAP Book Club
“This book is different from any fantasy book I’ve read before in its concept. It treads the path less traveled, and manages to make a great story that readers can enjoy and love.”~Bri, Blogger @ Books And Ashes

Thyra Winther’s seventeen, the Snow Queen, and immortal, but if she can’t reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she’s doomed to spend eternity as a wraith.
Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. Unencumbered by kindness, she kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time rapidly melting away she needs all the help she can steal.
A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai’s childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles. Thyra’s willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts — to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within her breast. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup’s devotion and the fire of a young man’s desire, the thawing of Thyra’s frozen heart could be her ultimate undoing.
CROWN OF ICE is a YA Fantasy that reinvents Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen” from the perspective of a young woman who discovers that the greatest threat to her survival may be her own humanity.
Praise for CROWN OF ICE:
“A re-imagining of The Snow Queen, moving and well written.” Sandra Waugh, Author of The Guardians of Tarnec Series.
 
“I admire the depiction of a young woman staying true to herself and not letting the pressures of love or expectations effect her choice. Thyra becomes an example that would do any woman proud.” Michelle Hauck, Author of Grudging.
 
“Weavil conducts a careful balancing act between loyalty to the original story and exploring new
frontiers; I think she succeeds in this task, and fans of fairytale re-tellings will enjoy this one.”
The Australia Times
 
WHAT READER’S ARE SAYING:
“CROWN OF ICE offers so much more than just the tale of The Snow Queen with a change of perspective. A solid YA adventure with teenagers who learn so much about themselves, and each other. Even the expected happily ever after offers believable surprises that underscore the maturity and independence they each have gained..”~ Julia, Blogger @ All Things Urban Fantasy
 
“I was enchanted by this book from the opening paragraphs. The story is told from Thyra’s point
of view, making it very personal and conversational in tone. By using this method, the reader gets to know Thyra on a deeper level than normal.”~ Stephanie, Blogger @ A Dream Within A Dream
 
“CROWN OF ICE is such a fascinating fantasy, with love adventure and enjoyable characters. I recommend for all fans of fantasy!!” ~ Tonyalee, Blogger @ LilyBloomBooks
 
“This book was fantastic, and so different from anything that I have ever read. I loved every single page of this book, and I very much look forward to whatever comes next from this amazing author!.”~ Jaime, Blogger @ TheBest Books Ever

Title: THE ARTISANS
Author: Julie Reece
Pub. Date: May 12, 2015
Publisher: Month9Books
Pages: 300
They say death can
be beautiful. But after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Raven
Weathersby gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving
life in the South Carolina lowlands.

To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning
works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day.

Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad’s
drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family
fortune, Gideon Maddox.

But Raven’s stepdad’s drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with
Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in
order to keep the only father she’s ever known out of jail, or worse.

Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his
home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries’ clothing line, signing
over her creative rights.

Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and
Raven can’t imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more
than five minutes.

But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world
believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he
really is?

Praise for THE ARTISANS:

“The
Artisans has all the elements I love – spooky intrigue, strong friendships, and
a romantic tension to be savored.”  ~ Wendy Higgins, New York Times
bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy.
“Read The
Artisans in the middle of the night with a flashlight if you dare. The perfect
blend of romance and horror with a strong female lead kept me reading through
the night.”~ L.S. Murphy author of PIXELATED Bloomsbury Spark and REAPERJ.
Taylor Publishing
WHAT READER’S ARE SAYING:
“Wowza!!!!
That book was so freakin’ good! Intense, insane, freaky at parts and sooooo
good! I haven’t had emotions like this about a book in a long time!”~
Mindy Blogger @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads
“The first
thing I thought when I finished this book was ‘dang, I would love to see this
as a movie’. The Artisans has such an awesome and haunting concept to it plus I
just adore all of the characters.”~Jena Blogger @ Shortie Says
“The
Artisans was a unique modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast filled with
mystery, romance and wonderful characters. From the first page I was completely
lost in the wonderful setting that Reece created.”~Bridget Blogger @ Dark
Faerie Tales

 

 

Born in Ohio, I lived next to my grandfather’s horse farm
until the fourth grade. Summers were about riding, fishing and make-believe,
while winter brought sledding and ice-skating on frozen ponds. Most of life was
magical, but not all.

I struggled with multiple learning disabilities, did not excel in school. I
spent much of my time looking out windows and daydreaming. In the fourth grade
(with the help of one very nice teacher) I fought dyslexia for my right to
read, like a prince fights a dragon in order to free the princess locked in a
tower, and I won.

Afterwards, I read like a fiend. I invented stories where I could be the
princess… or a gifted heroine from another world who kicked bad guy butt to win
the heart of a charismatic hero. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Later,
I moved to Florida where I continued to fantasize about superpowers and
monsters, fabricating stories (my mother called it lying) and sharing them with
my friends.

Then I thought I’d write one down…

Hooked, I’ve been writing ever since. I write historical, contemporary, urban
fantasy, adventure, and young adult romances.

I love strong heroines, sweeping tales of mystery and epic adventure… which
must include a really hot guy. My writing is proof you can work hard to
overcome any obstacle. Don’t give up. I say, if you write, write on!

Title: THE PERILOUS JOURNEY OF THE NOT SO INNOCUOUS GIRL
Author: Leigh Statham
Pub. Date: March 17, 2015
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 297
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th century French girls
can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors and a secure future. Except
she suspects she may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithie in
the family’s steam forge.

When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite
decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love. But the trip proves more
harrowing than she had anticipated, revealing secrets and testing her strength
as well as her heart. Love, adventure and restitution await her in Canada, but
only if she can survive the voyage.

WHAT READER’S ARE SAYING:
“The writing is solid and the world-building – that
clever combination of historical detail and Ms. Statham’s imagination – is
excellent.”~ The Australia Times
Books
“I’d give more
than five stars if I could. I’d recommend this to anyone who is a fan of
young adult steampunk, girls who aren’t afraid to wield guns and wear pants in
an age of dresses, adventure, and a dash of romance.” ~Bitches
n Prose
“ I ADORED this story, and these characters, and I
don’t want to give too much away. It is all worth stumbling across on your own!
With a cover to drool over, fantastic characters, a simmering romance, awesome
historical settings, and majorly cool steampunk elements, The Perilous Journey
of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl (awesome title) easily captivated me, and now that
it is over I want MORE!” ~ The
Best Books Ever

 

“  I’ve only recently discovered Steampunk, and
every story that I read in this genre makes me love it even more. The Perilous
Journey of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl was such an adventure! This book is
rich in so many things and lacking absolutely nothing.”~ Pretty
Little Pages

 

 

Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho, but
found her heart in New York City. She worked as a waitress, maid, artist, math
teacher, nurse, web designer, art director, thirty-foot inflatable pig and mule
wrangler before she settled down in the semi-quiet role of wife, mother and
writer. She resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, five
chickens and two suspected serial killer cats. If the air is cool and the sun
is just coming up over the horizon, you can find her running the streets of her
small town, plotting her next novel with the sort of intensity that will one
day get her hit by a car.
