Revisiting the Recent Books and Things Review of A Life of Death & Hosting an eBook Giveaway

As a celebratory kick off to adding A Life of Death to Kindle Select, I've decided to put the book with its newly conditioned cover by The Cover Counts and summary up for free for just this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, March 3rd and 4th, get your free kindle copy of A Life of Death on Amazon.com In addition, a couple months ago David King blogged about the book after he finished reading it, and I was very impressed and a little touched to read what he had to say. So, I thought I'd share it again during this time. Other readers have said similar things, so feel free to look at the reviews on Amazon or via my Goodreads feed via the 'My Books' tab above. So, without further ado, here is a brief excerpt of David King's review:

"A Life of Death" by Weston Kincade is an intriguing coming of age drama with a paranormal twist. However, there is more to the novel than just this as mystery, suspense and even a little romance help to make this a really memorable read.

The novel's plot is set around Alex Drummand re-telling part of his life to his son, specifically a period when he was a teenager that changed his life forever. In this period of his life, Alex has lost his father to a drunk driver and now lives with his mother and alcoholic step father who beats on him. He has become an outcast at school and his step-siblings are nothing more than an annoyance. However, one day he suddenly develops an ability that allows him to touch objects and re-live the deaths of the various people who were touching the same object when they died. Using these visions, he sets out on a mission to try and help those who had died in any manner he can, especially when one vision uncovers a possible threat to his new family.

The story is quite simply, absolutely superb and . . .

Presidents Day Giveaway of Thadd Presley Presents: Creature Feature

As many of you know, I edit books for WAKE Editing. I had the pleasure of revising a new book for a growing publisher, Thadd Presley Presents. They've just released this great anthology that even includes one of my stories, "House Al'Amin." It's one of my favorites involving necromancy, amnesia, and zombies. The entire ebook is free this weekend in their President's Day sale. Creature Feature is a great compilation of stories from new and previously published authors. Having read and edited their stories, I've been impressed.

I'm also looking forward to the next anthology that should be out in upcoming weeks titled Thadd Presley Presents: Murder. It's another one that WAKE Editing has had the pleasure of editing. The stories are quite twisted, and I can't say enough about them. If you're a writer, I'd highly recommend checking out TPP's upcoming anthology collections. There are many anthologies currently accepting submissions for various genres of stories such as: Neo-Victorians, Hauntings, Flash Fiction, and even Novellas of the Third Kind. So get your free copy of Creature Feature today from Amazon and see what this new publication has in store for readers.

One-liners 81-85:

As I've done for months now, here are the most recent one-liners that I've tweeted. I hope you enjoy them and that they help anyone struggling with writing ideas.

One-liner 81: Folding herself into the cramped coach seat, Sally opened the vent overhead to breath easier, seconds away from escape. #write

One-liner 82: "Mmmmm... Parrots... crunchy," mumbled the absent-looking man as he chewed. Charlotte cringed. #write #prompt.

One-liner 83: "Silence is a blessing," hissed the killer standing in the auditorium, the singer's blood dripping off his hands. #write

One-liner84: Screams echoed down the tiled hall of the ICU as a second patient passed beyond reach that night. A chill ran down Sam's spine.

One-liner 85: Death is a sorrowful matter, one that will bring tears to the eyes for a stranger, but will tear at the heart for a loved one.

To get my one-liners the instant they're available, follow me on twitter @westonkincade
