Giveaway & Q+A MOONSONGS 1 & 2 by E.J. WESLEY @EJWesley

About Blood Fugue:

“Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted.”

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried.

Life has pummeled her heart into one big, lonely callus. She has no siblings, both parents were dead by sixteen, and her last grandparent—and caretaker—was in the ground before she turned twenty-one. She’s the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thinks…

“We found my ‘grandfather’ sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I’d seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them.”

Suddenly, instead of burying it with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.

About Witch's Nocturne:
After receiving an ancient tribal journal from her grandfather, Jenny is sent on a mission of discovery in an attempt to unravel clues to her family's monster hunting past. The journey becomes more than academic when she is asked to confront a coven of dangerous witches who plan to cast an insidious spell on the plains of West Texas.

Witch's Nocturne is the second of the Moonsongs Books, a series of paranormal-horror-action novelettes by author E.J. Wesley. These stories contain language and content better suited for mature readers.

About the author:
Born and raised in Oklahoma, E.J. grew up in a land of good earth and better people. He holds degrees in psychology and counseling, but prefers to spend his time in the heads of imaginary people to real ones. He writes and lives in South Texas, and loves to chat about movies, books, music, food, and family.

What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?

The Cat In The Hat! I was so proud, and recall thinking it an odd story even then.

What are you reading right now? 

I’m finishing up The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie and just started The Casual Vacancy by some lesser-known author.

How does your garden grow? 

I’d answer ‘with pretty maids all in a row’ but my wife might read this and ban me from the garden!  My REAL garden grows with roses (where I live, even this time of year) and lots of flowering plants to attract butterflies. 

What is the last thing you Googled?

Joe Abercrombie, to ensure I cited him correctly above. 

What makes you cringe?

Black licorice. Seriously, just the thought of tasting it makes me a little nauseous.
