End Times Blog Tour + Giveaway

Hi guys! I’m really excited to be able to have Anna Schumacher, author of End Times, on the blog today and to be able to offer up the opportunity for one of YOU to win a copy! It’s a book I’m really excited about so I hope you guys will be too!

Before we get to the giveaway, let’s get to know Anna a little bit!

 

Seeing that End Times deals with a coming apocalypse or the “End Times”, what’s your favorite apocalypse story?


I eat dystopian lit like popcorn, so it changes a lot depending on what I’m into. But for the past few months, I’ve been a rabid advocate of the amazing YA novel STRUCK by Jennifer Bosworth. It has everything: a devastated LA trying to recover from an earthquake; a creepy prophet and his legions of white-clad followers; a mom with PTSD; a cool underground party called The Rove; a completely badass villainess who walks around with a tarot deck; mind-reading; mind-bending; a sexy love interest; and, best of all, a really compelling protagonist with an addiction to getting struck by lightning! I know it sounds like a lot to cram into one little novel, but Bosworth does it so well. It was a big influence on END TIMES!

Huh I’ve never heard of that one! Sounds intriguing and I’m adding it to my TBR! Has anyone read Struck?

So, want to know more about END TIMES?

When life gets too tough to bear in Detroit, Daphne flees to her Uncle Floyd’s home, where she believes she’ll find solace in the silent hills of her childhood summers. But Daphne’s Greyhound bus pulls over in downtown Carbon County and it’s not silence that welcomes her. It’s the sound of trumpets.

 Daphne’s desire to start again in simple country comfort is instantly dashed as the townsfolk declare that the End Times are here. And incredible occurrences soon support their belief. Daphne does all she can to keep her head down and ignore the signs. She works a job at the local oil rig, helps around the house, hangs out with her pregnant cousin Janie and gets to know Owen, a mysterious motocross racer and fellow roustabout at the rig. But soon a startling discovery shatters her resolve and calls into question all her doubts and fears.

  1. You have to read Struck! It is one of my absolute favorites! Actually, the Kindle in my blog banner is reading it! LoL I also cried when I won a signed copy. Soooo much love!!! Seriously. Read it.

  2. I am generally not into a lot of books & series that focus on this particular topic or subject, but there is something within the premise of this one that struck me as being ‘different from the pack’! And, those are the books that I like to give a chance to reading! Thank you for offering such a lovely keen bookaway! And, you know even the setting of the story, and the fact there is an oil rig job involved leads me to believe this is one book that is not like most that you can simply pick up and soak inside for a spell! 🙂

    Second comment is on: http://www.perpetualpageturner.com/2014/06/when-the-well-rounded-reader-suddenly-finds-herself-not-so-well-rounded.html#comments As soon as I finish reading the post & formulating my thoughts!

  3. I agree with Angie, Struck is really good! I actually really, really liked it.

  4. I never noticed all the details on this cover until this post. The bottom of it has a whole scene! OMG!

    I haven’t read Struck, but I think I’ll definitely be checking it out. Thanks for the post and giveaway opportunity!
