Darker Days Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway


Today I'm super excited to welcome author Jus Accardo and Jessie, the protagonist of her newest paranormal young adult release Darker Days, to the blog to talk a bit about pleasing a mom who just happens to know how to kick a little butt. Jus and the team at Rockstar Book Tours have put together a fantastic tour, so be sure and check out the bottom of the post for not only details on a fun giveaway, but also a list of all the participating blogs so you can check out more reviews, interviews and general Darker Days awesomeness!

JESSIE DARKER'S 5 WAYS TO MAKE
AN ASS KICKING MOM HAPPY
  • For the neat freak Mom—Clean up the corpses. Just get done with a particularly messy trap and slap? Forget doing the dishes. Let Mom put her feet up while you dispose of the otherworldly body bits.
     
  • For the fashion savvy Mom—Tell her you’ll take Pet possession duty for the next month. Does your Mom constantly complain about the fact that demon drool stains? Does she groan when the call comes in to say Fido down the road is breathing fire and peeing acid on the carpets?  Trust me. She—and her wardrobe—will thank you.
     
  • For the frugal Mom—Buy her a bulk bag of quartz powder and a lighter. Forget flowers and lame-o “World’s best Mom” charm bracelets. What good are those things when trapped and staring down the stinky nose of a Zombie?
     
  • For the sensible Mom—A good pair of running shoes. There’s nothing as priceless as a good pair of kicks. Giving Mom sensible footwear so she’ll be able to outrun the big bad on her ass is going to ensure years of companionship and plenty of memorable, late night Mother/Daughter monster mashes.
     
  • For the hip Mom—An iPod loaded with a catalog of musical kickassery. Everything from Hardcore punk, to those weird hair bands she loves so much.

DARKER DAYS
(releases August 26th from Entangled Teen)


Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit  darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...

When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.

Seven deadly ones, in fact.

They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...

There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

  35. Haha, love this list! Especially this "Forget doing the dishes. Let Mom put her feet up while you dispose of the otherworldly body bits." It does sound like a nice overture for an ass-kicking mom, but SO GROSS. :-)

    ReplyDelete
