Summer Reads to take your mind off the weather

Summer Reads Blog Tour – Week Six, and it’s the turn of my lovely friend and ultra talented fantasy and paranormal writer, Tricia Drammeh. If you haven’t checked her blog out yet…what are you waiting for? 😀 xx

Suddenly they all died. The end.

Today’s Summer Reads guest is the wonderful Tricia Drammeh, a terrific friend and author.  Let’s see which books she recommends!

Summer Reads Blog Tour – Week Six Tricia Drammeh

Super excited to introduce you to Tricia Drammeh! Tricia is another friend that I’ve had the privilege of getting to know over the last several years from a site called Authonomy. It’s a site where writers go to post their manuscripts and have their peers read and critique. I loved her manuscript, her style of writing from the moment I first read her work. It’s really cool to be able to say “I read her original work before it was published!” And now a word from Tricia!

me-3Hi everyone! My name is Tricia Drammeh, and I’m super excited to be a part of the 2014 Summer Reads Blog Tour. I hope you all are finding lots of great books to read…

Suddenly they all died. The end.

Here in the Midwest, the last couple of days have been a nightmare, at least at our house (well, part of the time was a lot of fun, but the storms have definitely taken their toll), so I’m glad to have another Summer Reads Blog Tour post to share today. Let’s have a look at the books that fellow Worldbuilder Andrea Baker has chosen, shall we? That oughtta keep my mind off the river forming outside my door, at least for a little while…

My name is Sam. By day I’m a doctor, running around taking blood samples, saving lives and getting grilled by consultants. When I’m not on duty, I’m also the author of The Chronicles of Azaria Series.



It’s a YA Fantasy Romance with a slight twist. The first two books, The Binding and The Parting, are available on Amazon and Smashwords. If you’re looking for something outside the paranormal genre, I’d definitely recommend it (but I would say that…
