Summer Giveaway Hop: August 1st - 7th

Welcome to Stop #220 of the Summer Giveaway Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by I'm A Reader, Not A Writer and co-hosted by Mary from Bookhounds and Forever Young (Adult).

Over 300 blogs are offering a book related giveaway, and we are all linked up together so that you can easily hop from one giveaway to another! The hope runs from Monday, August 1st through Sunday, August 7th.

Details of my giveaway:

  • Ushers, Inc. by Rusty Fischer (2 copies)
  • Called Home: Two Hearts Answer by Gloria Schumann (1 copy)
Please read the book descriptions below and decide which book giveaway you would like to enter. You can also choose to enter both if you like!


When the streets are full of bloodsuckers, werewolves, zombies and ghouls, where will you turn? The cops don’t know how to stop them, the Army’s pretty much given up and even the Marines are stumped when their bullets and grenades fail to stop the onslaught.

Have no fear, Ushers, Inc. is here! Four high school movie ushers, who collectively have seen over 42,000 hours of B- and C-horror movies know just what to do.

Did you know copper pennies can stop a zombie in its tracks? Abby Cooper, Head Usher, does.

Did you know garlic paste is twice as effective on vampires as garlic cloves? Abby Cooper does.

Did you know werewolves are absolutely petrified of seeing a Hershey’s kiss? Abby Cooper does.

The girls at Cypress Cove High school—especially Rich Witch Mia Hopwood—call Abby an uber-geek; the victims she rescues from zombies, werewolves and vampires just call her one thing: Hero!

But Abby and her fearless crew of movie ushers-slash-superheroes face more than just bloodsuckers and brain-biters. There’s Wyatt Winters, for one; he’s the hot new PR guru Ushers, Inc. has had to hire to handle all their press – and with his smoldering good looks and air of confidence, he’s causing more than just tension between Abby and her old boy-crush—and fellow usher—Zach Nash.

And let’s not forget the monsters, who aren’t too happy about four geeky ushers beating their butts all over creation. Now the League of Associated Undead (LAD) is converging on Cypress Cove, determined to stop Ushers, Inc. once and for all.

When it’s the monsters versus the monster hunters, who you gonna call?

Ushers, Inc., that’s who!


Emma Benson's view of life was crafted by the death of her brother as a child, abandonment by her father and later, the man she trusted she would marry, until David Schlosser-back in town after years in New York writing best-selling novels-threatens her neatly tended life. Romance blooms. Emma and David eventually persevere in the face of tragedy, refusing to leave their dreams behind.
