Blog Tour Stop – T. Michelle Nelson’s “Death Warmed Over”


Heyo, regular readers! You might be wondering what’s going on here with this “blog tour” thing, so let me explain…

“Blog tours” are a way for indie writers to spread the word about their books. Whereas a more established author, backed by a major publisher, might tour the country for in-person book signings, indie authors take the virtual route and get fellow authors (like me) to host a “tour stop.” Michelle and I have done a couple of cross-promos before, so I was happy to play host for her new book.

Speaking of which…

DWO COVERIn the conclusion of the Lily Drake series, Lily must choose not only what is best for herself and her son, but for her people.  Her sword will be stained with blood through her efforts to preserve the lives of the people she loves, but she won’t be able to save them all.

When a devastating loss crushes her will to live, can Lily go on and be the leader she has to be?  What is she willing to sacrifice to save others?

Death comes to everyone…even the Queen’s house…

What doesn’t kill you will make you wish it did…

Bonus! Here’s a chance to win a free copy of the book via a Rafflecopter giveaway.

When Michelle Meets Michael

Here’s your reading for the day: head on over to fellow author T. Michelle Nelson’s website, click the blog link, and check out the interview she recently conducted with me.

Since I like to quid pro quo such kind offers, here’s what you need to know about Michelle, courtesy of her website bio:

T. Michelle Nelson became enamored with vampires at an early age when she watched George Hamilton in “Love at First Bite.” As she got older, her tastes leaned more toward the dark and morose, but her love of all things vampire never wavered.  Little has changed over the years, except now T.  makes up her own macabre stories of the undead… mixed with a splash of romance, tough heroines and tons of dark humor.TMN

T. Michelle Nelson is a native of Benton, Kentucky and a graduate of Murray State University.  Currently she resides in picturesque Mount Vernon, Ohio, which is also the setting of her Lily Drake series.  The first two books in the series, Life and Death of Lily Drake and ‘Til Death Do Us Part, are currently available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon or any of your other favorite online bookstores. A short story prequel The First Timeis also available. Currently, T. is working hard to finish her third book.

When she isn’t writing, you can usually find her spending time with her son, singing out of key, watching B-Horror movies or discussing world problems with her little dog, Toadie.

A B-movie horror fan? My kind of person!

And here is what you need to know about the books, again courtesy of Michelle (and you can click on the cover images to go directly to and buy them):

The Life & Death of Lily Drake

The life of a single mother is never easy, but Lily Drake is about to be put to the test.  PTA meetings, a full time job and raising her young son is enough to fill her plate, but when a friend sets her up on a blind date, Lily’s life spins out of control. Mistaking a vampire for her suitor, Lily finds herself thrown into a world where her decisions not only affect her and her young son’s lives, but also could turn the tides in a battle between warring vampires.

Maintaining a balance between Lily’s role as a doting mother and the dark secret society of vampires is no easy task, but when she finds herself in love with two of the vampires, choosing between humanity and immortality seems to be the easiest decision of all.  How will Lily find time to check homework, choose between two handsome vampire cousins and still have time to dispose of the bodies?

The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene.  How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?

Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?

‘Til Death Do Us Part

With a doting husband and a new job training a vampire military, Lily Drake was living up to the prophecies of being the best.  Her life was seemingly perfect, until tragedy strikes bringing her a loss she’s not sure she can endure.

The hard-working super mom / vampire slayer, Lily Drake, has just learned problems still exist even after you become immortal.

As everyone knows, even if you find the perfect guy, you don’t always get a happily-ever-after.  Lily may have found temporary happiness being a newlywed, but the honeymoon is over.  When she finds her husband going out for late night bites with another woman, Lily has to fight to try and regain what she wants most, love and a happy family.

If Lily thought being a single mom was hard, she’ll find being married can be a bloody mess.

Book Three to be released in June.
