Blurb Blitz Tour & Giveaway - Resthaven by Erik Therme

https://goddessfishpromotions.blogspot.com/2016/09/blurb-blitz-resthaven-by-erik-therme.html


Resthaven
Author: Erik Therme
Genre: YA suspense

Book Description:
The last thing Kaylee wants to do is participate in a childish scavenger hunt—especially inside the abandoned retirement home on the edge of town. When she finds a bruised, deaf boy hiding inside one of the rooms, she vows to lead him to safety . . . only to discover the front doors are now padlocked, and her friends are nowhere to be found. Kaylee is about to learn that not everything that goes ‘bump in the night’ is imaginary, and sometimes there are worse things to fear than ghosts.

EXCERPT

The dog was taller than our knees and its skin clung to its ribs, as if it hadn’t eaten in days. A half-chewed leash hung from its collar, and its ears and muzzle were pulled back. There was no question we were unwelcome guests.

“Kaylee?” Anna said.

The dog began to growl. We both took a step back.

“Do we run?” Anna rasped.

“Are you crazy?” I whispered fiercely. “We can’t outrun a dog.”

“What do we do?”

A sound rose and died in my throat. All I could see was the dog’s teeth. Last year I had been bitten by a stray in our neighborhood, and I still had the ankle scar to prove it.

The dog let out a wracking bark, startling us both back another step. My eyes skipped to Anna, then to the open doors on each side of us.

“We can hide inside the rooms,” I said, speaking low and fast. “When I count to three, run into the room beside you and slam the door.”

Anna’s grip on my wrist tightened. “I can’t—”

“You can,” I hissed. “If both of us go for opposite rooms, the dog won’t know which one to follow. That will confuse it and give us another second of time.”

“Another second?”

“Just get inside the room,” I said.

The dog lowered its head, shifting its muddy eyes from Anna to me. It knew who the threat was.

“One,” I whispered.

“Don’t make me do this,” Anna said.

My stomach knotted. “Two . . .”

The dog burst forward in a shambling run.

  8. This looks scary and reminds me of the halls of the old Crile Hospital which was repurposed into a community college and eventually torn down to make way for the new. If walls could talk, I wonder what they would say.

  10. where do you find your inspiration for your characters?

    1. Almost every character I create is either loosely based on someone I know, or an existing character from a favorite book or movie. When you have an "existing" person in mind, it makes it so much easier to stay consistent!

    1. Everything I write is centered around mystery and suspense, so that's definitely a favorite. However, as long as a story captures my attention, I'll pretty much read any genre. :)
