Experiences that would make your life so much happier if you didn’t remember they happened? Well if that’s the case then you have come to the right booth.  You see we have a witch that has the power to erase whatever memories you don’t want.  She is very skilled and has quite a bit of practice erasing other people’s memories.  But know once the memories are gone there is no getting them back so be wise in choosing what you don’t want to remember. So who wants to go first?

In the Cahill Witch Chronicles, the rarest and most dangerous type of magic is mind-magic. Using ?it, a witch can compel her subject to do her bidding – or erase the subject’s memories. Though witches sometimes resort to compulsion in order t?o protect themselves in a country where magic has been outlawed by the priests of the Brotherhood, it’s also misused to control their enemies. Having one’s free will – or favorite memories – taken away is a fearful thing. But what 3 memories do each of my main characters wish they could erase? (warning: big spoilers for STAR CURSED and mild spoilers for SISTERS’ FATE below)

Born Wicked

Cate Cahill:

1. my mother’s funeral

2. the look on Maura’s face when Elena told her she didn’t care for her like that

3. the blank confusion in Finn’s eyes when he asked me if this was his carriage, and called me “miss”, after Maura did what she did

Star Cursed

Maura Cahill:

1. Elena telling me she didn’t care for me (even if it was a lie)

2. Sister Inez telling me that we’re so much alike, she and I (and the way I agreed with the old cow!)

3. spending Christmas without Cate and Tess and Papa (but I’d never tell them that)

Sister's Fate

Tess Cahill:

1. my nightmares all fall

2. what I did to Vi’s kitten

3. what happened on the rooftop of the National Council building with Cate and Maura


Jessica SpotswoodAbout Jessica:

I grew up in a tiny one-stoplight town in Pennsylvania, where I could be found swimming, playing clarinet, memorizing lines for the school play, or—most often—with my nose in a book. I’ve been writing since I was little but studied theatre in college and grad school. Now I live in Washington, DC with my brilliant playwright husband and a cuddly cat named Monkey.

About this Book:

A fever ravages New London, but with the Brotherhood sending suspected witches straight to the gallows, the Sisters are powerless against the disease. They can’t help without revealing their powers—as Cate learns when a potent display of magic turns her into the most wanted witch in all of New England.

To make matters worse, Cate has been erased from the memory of her beloved Finn. While she’s torn between protecting him from further attacks and encouraging him to fall for her all over again, she’s certain she can never forgive Maura’s betrayal. And now that Tess’s visions have taken a deadly turn, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer to its fulfillment.

Fall Carnival: Blood of My Blood by Barry Lyga

August 30th, 2014 @ 12:01 am
Posted by Kristie under Fall Carnival Tags: Barry Lyga, Blood of My Blood, Jasper Dent Series, Mystery, Review, Young Adult

Fall Carnival Event

Now you may wonder with a name like “The Killer Booth” what exactly we are going to be talking about today. Are we featuring the American Rock band known as “The Killers”? Or we are going to be talking about serial “killers” and all the weirdness that they are? Or are we going to be talking about the end of a “Killer” series?  Since we are a book blog it was probably pretty easy to guess that we are talking about the final option, but the series does feature some pretty infamous serial killers so option number two might also make an appearance. ! Today we have the amazing author of the I Hunt Killers series.  Barry Lyga is going to tell you what it was like to finish a five year project and some of the changes this phenomenal series had throughout the process.

Reaching the End: My Five-Year Journey in I HUNT KILLERS

by Barry Lyga

It doesn’t feel like five years, if you want to know the truth.

But there’s a folder on my hard drive titled, simply, “Jazz” and the oldest file in there is the earliest version of my proposal for a book titled Jazz, Waking, which I almost immediately re-titled I Hunt Killers. The file was created on September 5, 2009.

There are some differences between that initial proposal and the book that ended up being published. Jazz lived in “Lartesville,” not Lobo’s Nod. Jazz and G. William’s relationship was originally planned to be much more contentious. (“Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” G. William grumps to Jazz at one point, prompting Jazz to reply, “But sometimes it rolls away.”) Howie’s last name is McNab, not Gersten. And, maybe the biggest change of all, Jazz and Connie frequently have sex.

I changed my mind pretty quickly on these things as the story came together. For the most part, stories in their earliest forms are inchoate and fluid. Things can go one way or the other. But the core of the story — its essential heart — remains the same. And so from the beginning, I Hunt Killers, even when it was Jazz, Waking, has been the tale of a boy struggling to become a man when the central male role model in his life is a rapacious murderer. Many people have described it as a balancing act between nature and nurture, but I’ve always thought it’s more complicated than that. Jazz, after all, is damned by nature and nurture. So the question becomes “Can we rise above ourselves?”

I Hunt KillersGameBlood of My Blood

In the final book, Blood of My Blood, you’ll find out.

So. Five years. I’ve been writing towards this ending for all that time, pretty much. The specifics of the ending — the very wording of it — occurred to me about three years ago and I wrote the last ten pages of the final book then, even though I hadn’t finished writing Book Two yet. And you know what? Much to my delight, that ending fit perfectly when the time came to drop it into Book Three.

To write this piece, I had to go deep diving into my archives to pull up that September 5, 2009 document. That file was mostly concerned with getting down the beats and central plot for the first book, but at the very end of it, I jotted down brief thoughts for the second and third books in the series. Here’s the original description of Book Three from five years ago:

“Jazz learns what happened to his mother all those years ago and finally comes face-to-face with his father. Now he must decide: Is he a killer or someone who hunts killers? Or is he something else entirely?”

And I’ll be damned if that doesn’t exactly describe Blood of My Blood!

It really doesn’t feel like it’s been five years since I started working on this series. Even though my life has changed. My career has changed. The books themselves have changed. Still, it somehow feels like I just started working on this whole crazy thing a little while ago.

But despite the time and despite the changes, the story itself, the core of it, has remained the same. I set out to tell a particular tale five years ago and now I have. The only thing left…is for you to read it.

I hope you will, and I hope you’ll find it worth the wait!


Barry LygaAbout Barry:

Called a “YA rebel-author” by Kirkus Reviews, Barry Lyga has published eleven novels in various genres in his seven-year career, including the New York Times bestselling I Hunt Killers. His books have been or are slated to be published in a dozen different languages in North America, Australia, Europe, and Asia.

After graduating from Yale with a degree in English, Lyga worked in the comic book industry before quitting to pursue his lifelong love of writing. In 2006, his first young adult novel, The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl, was published to rave reviews, including starred reviews from Booklist and School Library Journal. Publishers Weekly named Lyga a “Flying Start” in December 2006 on the strength of the debut.

His second young adult novel, Boy Toy, received starred reviews in SLJPublishers Weekly, and KirkusVOYA gave it its highest critical rating, and the Chicago Tribune called it “…an astounding portrayal of what it is like to be the young male victim.” His third novel, Hero-Type, according to VOYA “proves that there are still fresh ideas and new, interesting story lines to be explored in young adult literature.”

Since then, he has also written Goth Girl Rising (the sequel to his first novel), as well as the Archvillain series for middle-grade readers and the graphic novel Mangaman (with art by Colleen Doran).

His latest series is I Hunt Killers, called by the LA Times “one of the more daring concepts in recent years by a young-adult author” and an “extreme and utterly alluring narrative about nature versus nurture.” The first book landed on both the New York Times and USAToday bestsellers lists, and the series has been optioned for television by Warner Bros./Silver Pictures.

Lyga lives and writes in New York City. His comic book collection is a lot smaller than it used to be, but is still way too big.

Fall Carnival: Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

August 29th, 2014 @ 12:05 am
Posted by Kristie under Fall Carnival Tags: Joy N. Hensley, Military, Rites of Passage, Young Adult

Fall Carnival Event

Welcome to boot camp carnival style.  Get ready to have the work out of your life doing push-ups, long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. Today we are going to have a very sexy drill sergeant from the prestigious Denmark Military Academy, teaching us a few things about what it takes to become a world class cadet. You see DMA has decided that for the first time ever they are going to allow girls to enroll in their school. Dean Stamm is the drill sergeant in charge of the five girls brave enough to try and accomplish something no girl has done before which is graduate from DMA. There are plenty of people that don’t welcome this new change to happen and if the girls want to last the year they are going to have to keep their wits about them and learn who they can trust.  So join me in welcoming Drill Sergeant Stamm today.

Rites of Passage Boot Camp

*Enter to win Rites of Passage Swag at the end of this post*

*Don’t forget to enter the grand giveaway for your chance to win 2 books featured during the Fall Carnival Event!!! Click HERE for your chance to win!*


DFT: To start things off can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what made you decide to attend DMA?

Dean Stamm: Sure, I’m Dean Stamm, junior at the DMA and drill sergeant of Alpha Company. I’m a military brat—brother in the Army, sister at West Point. Just following in the combat-boot footsteps, you know?

DFT: I know that military school can be pretty brutal so to help us prepare would you mind giving us a few tips that might make our boot camp experience today a little easier?

Dean Stamm: The most important tip I can give you is to never give up. Each of you is a lot stronger than you think you are. If you quit on yourself or don’t even start because you think you can’t do it, then of course you’re going to fail. You may not do all the push-ups I ask you to do today, but any is better than none, and soon, if you keep working on it, you’re going to do what I ask and then more.

DFT: Physically you have to be very fit to get through training.  Can you tell us some of the drills we will be expected to perform today?

Dean Stamm: I’m planning to run you through a typical PT session, so we’re going to start with some stretching and cardio just to get our hearts pumping—sit-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks, mountain climbers—you know, that kind of thing. After that we’ll take a five mile run, which should take about 40-50 minutes, and then we’ll go through the obstacle course. We’ll time you as you run through the twelve obstacles we’ve got set up for you. See? No sweat!

DFT: What is the standard uniform we will be expected to wear? Since this is just a one day thing do you think it would be ok if we wore cute workout clothes instead of military uniforms? We can even wear cute camo if you want us to :D !

Dean Stamm: *clears throat* Now, now, I’m afraid to make this as real as possible, you’re going to have to dress like cadets. Camouflage pants and button-down blouse over a brown undershirt. Combat boots. You can forego the camo hat if you want. Hey, at least you don’t have to wear the wool uniforms, right?

DFT: Now I want to ask you a few personal questions if that’s okay. You were the drill sergeant for the first females to go to DMA, and there were many who didn’t want this change to occur. What was it like to be given such a huge responsibility of protecting these girls from some of your fellow students?

Dean Stamm: As part of a military school, I do what they tell me to. When I got put in charge of Alpha Company, I knew we were going to have some issues. But my recruits are my recruits, whether male or female. I did what I would have done for anyone. Look, we all go through the same thing. I know there are some cadets who think the freshmen have to “prove” themselves, but they do that every day. What’s wrong with giving them all a fair chance?

Rites of Passage

DFT: When you join the military your unit is like your family. You will do anything to protect the people you have grown to call brothers.  How much of a betrayal was it to you when you found out that some of your own were trying to hurt your recruits?

Dean Stamm: Honestly, I thought it was bullshit. We are a family and we should be helping each other out. If I’d been able to do what I wanted, I would have caused some serious damage. But rules are rules and there are bigger things at play here than just personal feelings. The DMA Code of Conduct will work, like it’s supposed to, and while I still would really like to punch some of them, I’ve got recruits to lead. My primary job is leading by example.

DFT: Relationships with any of the female cadets is strictly forbidden, so with these next questions I want you to know that we are completely trust worthy and won’t tell a soul about what you disclose to us today.  What was your first impression when you met Cadet Sam McKenna? What do you think is her best physical feature?

Dean Stamm: *tugs at collar* Mac—Recruit McKenna looked strong when she came here, as ready to be part of the DMA as any other recruit. And, I’m not allowed to date my recruits so…I’m going to go with her brain being her best physical feature and we’ll just leave it at that, okay?

DFT: Even though this will probably not happen any time in the near future, will you tell us what you would do and where you would go if you had the opportunity to take Sam on a normal date?

Dean Stamm: You know you could get me in a lot of trouble for this, right? I mean…you know who’s leading the Corps next year. Shit, fine, it wouldn’t be anything stupid like dinner and a movie or something. Maybe a hike? There are some great waterfalls around here, and I make a mean peanut butter and jelly. Besides, there’d be less of a chance of being seen breaking the rules that way. And after sharing Mac with the  whole Corps for a year, some alone would be really nice…*clears throat*

DFT: I don’t know what you like to do for fun but if you were to attend a carnival like the one we are at today what would be the first thing you would want to try?

Dean Stamm: Is there a climbing wall? Or one of those hammer things where you see how hard you can hit something? Barring all that, as cheesy as it sounds, maybe the Ferris wheel? Again, when you’re surrounded by hundreds of guys every day, a little quiet time means a lot.

DFT: If there is a continuation of your story (which we really hope there is) what are some things we might expect from you in the future?

Dean Stamm: Well, my life goes on whether you read about it or not. But I’d hope you’d find me just dedicated to my school and to the cadets there as ever. I’ve got plans, you know? West Point and the Army after that, so there’ll definitely be a uniform in my future—I think chicks kind of dig, you know?

Thanks for having me here, and I hope you’re ready for me to put you through your paces. Why don’t you get your uniform squared away and we’ll get started!


Joy N HensleyAbout Joy:

Born and raised in Virginia, I’ve come back to my roots after five years of wandering up and down the East Coast. From being a barista to editing, writing commercials for television to being a middle school/high school English teacher, there’s nothing I’m not willing to try. That includes going to military school (on a dare), hiking 600 miles of the Appalachian Trail, and playing in the mud with my students!

A graduate of Greensboro College, I received the Excellence in English award for my fiction and poetry contributions. In 2007 I graduated from Long Ridge Writers Group’s Breaking Into Print class, and in 2009 I finished their Shape, Write, and Sell Your Novel classes.

Now, between hiking, doing obstacle course runs, and having fun with my husband and two sons, I continue to write.

Rites of Passage

Available September 9, 2014 from HarperTeen

About this Book:

Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she’s not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.

So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She’s even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won’t risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty…no matter how much she wants him.

As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.

Now time’s running short. Sam must decide who she can trust…and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.
