Intro Teaser Tuesdays



AMAZON

I'm going to die tomorrow morning.
That's what the Inquisitors tell me, anyway, when they visit my cell. I've been here for weeks--I know this only because I've been counting the number of times my meals come.
One day. Two days.
Four days. A week.
Two weeks.
Three.
I stopped counting after that. The hours run together, an endless train of nothingness, filled with different slants of light and the shiver of cold, wet stone, the pieces of my sanity, the disjointed whispers of my thoughts.

  5. It's an opening that does make me want to keep reading but it looks like a fantasy which I don't read much of so would need to know more about it before continuing.

  6. I would hate to be in prison and have my freedom completely taken away! I literally cannot imagine anything worse, especially when you know death is waiting for you, rather than release! I do like the sound of the beginning because I definitely want to know more! Thanks for stopping by :) Have a good week!

  7. Sounds a little depressing, but the opening makes me want to know more about this character. Why is he going to be executed? Will it happen? What led up to this scene?

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
