Day 3 of The Blogger Book Fair Featuring Tom Lucas and Catherine Stine

Hi everyone! It's day 3 of the Blogger Book Fair and today I have two fantastic authors, Tom Lucas and Catherine Stine.

First up is Tom Lucas. I started reading the first few chapter of his book, Leather to the Corinthians and let me tell you this: You definitely won't be bored. I can't wait to finish the rest of it. I was also interviewed on Tom's blog the other day, which you need to check out because his questions were hilariously brilliant. His blog is fantastic too. A lot of great content on there -- a definite must-follow blog. Okay, enough from me, here are a few words from Tom:

Welcome to the Blogger Book Fair! What’s most exciting to me about this event is the great diversity amongst the writers, bloggers, and books that are participating this week.

It’s a bit trite, but there is truly something for everyone here. I hope that you have the chance to find something great to add to your reading list. Taking a look around, I see many thrilling stories, exciting characters, and my personal favorite – bold new worlds. What’s your favorite flavor? Romance? Mystery? Fantasy? Sci-Fi?

Do you have a taste for the bizarre? How about a surreal, dystopian satire? You can grab my novel, Leather to the Corinthians for only .99 cents in the Kindle store all week.

About the book:

Gather round all you tattooed, lost soul wandering, Wi-Fi/Lo-Fi mutants!

Come! Come listen to the hypnotic beat of my drum!

Join me on trip to the Village, a strange and surreal place, where an epic battle will determine the fate of the human race! The GENERAL is determined to win this war as the insane clown insurgent wants to settle a score! He’s got a bone to pick with his nemesis the KING, the mad ruler of the Village who only cares about celebrity status and bling!  You will meet a young SOLDIER, who fights to survive the melee, as he loses his humanity along the way!

Leather to the Corinthians is an absurd postmodern fable that defiantly flips a middle finger at modern American life. Through the perspectives of its multiple characters, it explores the absurdities of organized religion, the military, big business, fast food, advertising, sex, and the media. Witty, with bitter undertones, its story possesses a satirical spirit as it plays with traditional story structure, phrasing and cultural references. Its multiple layers encourage return visits as its characters have many more unique tales to tell.

Check out the book trailer:

And you should also check out her books because they've got great reviews. Here's her latest:

Seventeen year-old Ruby and her little brother Thorn, have only known a life blighted by the extremist Fireseed Cult. The night Ruby is set to be claimed by one of its cruelest and oldest leaders, she makes a bid for freedom. With Thorn in tow, she stumbles into the world beyond, and finds an opportunity for a fresh start in Skull’s Wrath under the guidance of Nevada Pilgrim, a woman who may not be all she seems. Ruby's new life could bring her friendship, love, even fortune, but nothing comes without a price. Is Ruby's talent for elixirs keeping the roof over their heads, or do some of her associates have a more sinister and lucrative interest in them? Life outside a strange cult isn't without its dangers, and the experience leaves Ruby transformed and communing with the Fireseed more closely than she ever would have imagined. Stine delivers a thrilling adventure led by an exciting cast of characters, and the romance is really well handled.” - YA’s The Word
