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 . . .
