I'm a giant wuss when it comes to scary stuff, so the fact that CD has gotten me to read any is a big feat. Well, I can handle scary books better than movies, but I am still a big wuss. And CD writes good books.
And with a name like Revenge of the Space-Surfing Butt Monkeys how can I not be intrigued?
The truck was burned beyond recognition, but it was in better condition than its occupants. The two bodies inside the pickup truck were little more than piles of ash. Constable Bennett made retching sounds at the sight of them, and he had seen some pretty grotesque stuff last year. Tanguay felt a little sick herself.
Newfoundland, Canada, 1993.
It's been a year since a handful of kids defeated the Psycho Hose Beast in the sleepy town of Gale Harbour, Newfoundland. Our heroes have entered into the era of rollerblades, Super Nintendo and oversized plaid shirts… unless you’re a goth, then it’s the era of Maybelline eyeliner, boots with too many buckles, and infected safety-pin piercings.
Thirteen-year-old Niall O'Neil is navigating a blossoming relationship with his crush, Harper Jeddore. Unfortunately, the power that allowed them to defeat the monster from the deep is still within them, and they are no closer to understanding or controlling it. When just touching your girlfriend can kill innocent bystanders, it complicates the already precarious practice of teenage dating.
But lurking in the backdrop of teenage romance, a sinister power is growing in Gale Harbour, and dangerous people are turning up in the small town with possibly deadly intentions.
Will the kids defeat this new threat? What did the US Air Force leave in the abandoned Hansen Air Force base? What is a space-surfing butt monkey? And most importantly—will anyone get to touch a boob?

*Did you see what I did there?
This is going to look like a weird post, but I have a reason for it. I was organizing my blog and removed some posts I plan to repurpose. The problem? Someone had pinned the graphic below and it led to a broken link. Because I deleted the post! _-_ So people are seeing an error. EEK!
I can't have that so I'm redoing the original post. If you've come from that Pinterest post, hi, hey. What's up?
The first Wednesday of every month is the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Posts go up the 1st Wednesday of every month. Check it out here and join if you need support with your writing. Don't forget to stop by and say hi to the co-hosts: Joylene Nowell Butler, Jemima Pett, Patricia Josephine, Louise - Fundy Blue, and Kim Lajevardi!
Hey look, my name is in there. Why yes I may have forgotten I volunteered. Life has been a little hectic since I told Alex I'd help, to say the least.
April 6 question - Have any of your books been made into audio books? If so, what is the main challenge in producing an audiobook?
If you've been to my blog today and noticed the post looks different and the comments are gone, it's because it is. My original post had been about how my writing life seems to be shifting and I wasn't sure how to feel about it. The comments were kind and well intention but a few accidentally hit on a pet peeve of mine. Well, it's more than a pet peeve because it utterly infuriates me. It picks at an old and painful wound from my teens. It's not their fault. They had no idea, but for my sanity. I opted to delete the original post. Thanks to everyone who had commented and tried to help. This apparently isn't a topic I'm ready to discuss with the public yet. Lesson learned.
Don't Leave Yet!
I want to give a shout out to Alex's new book, Cassadark. It released yesterday.
His world is unraveling…
Bassan’s father is stepping down from command. His best friend almost dies when Bassan freezes. Now, he’s being sent across the galaxy to speak at an important conference. Despite saving the eleven races years ago, he’s paralyzed by doubt. Could things get any worse?
Once there, new acquaintance Zendar convinces Bassan to visit his planet for a humanitarian mission. Bassan’s special connection to ancient technology is the key to saving Zendar’s people. One problem though—it’s a prisoner planet.
On Ugar, he discovers things aren’t so straightforward. As each truth reveals itself, the situation grows more desperate. If he can’t find the right answers, he might die along with Zendar’s people. Can Bassan summon the courage to be a hero again?
