Book 2 #BlogTour and #Giveaway

After a successful Blog Tour in January for ‘Beginnings‘ I thought it would be nice to follow this up with another tour and relaunch ‘Visions’ the second book of the series, ‘Same Face Different Place.

Visions Blog Tour Banner

As before, I asked Rachel of Rachel’s Rare Resources if she could arrange a similar tour for my book. The nice thing is, I have already attracted a few new ‘fans’ from the last tour, some of whom were eager to jump on board.

This Blog Tour was great for reviews; some from bloggers who had read the first book in the series and a few who hadn’t. For the latter, obviously they were not familiar with the opening story but it didn’t seem to be a problem. Visions can be read as a standalone psychological thriller and with enough background infused into the story to get a gist of the story. But one thing that did emerge is that some bloggers really want to read the first book now. This has been really encouraging.

As before, there is a competition attached to the tour where you can win a signed paperback of VISIONS. Each post has a rafflecopter link where you can enter.

So without further ado, here are some of the best comments, picked from all those wonderful reviews:

“The synopsis is intriguing, but I was surprised by  this story, it was totally captivating, addictive and I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Says Yvonne from Me and My Books

“There are moments of shock, surprises and stand out jolts, some quite extreme violence and psychological warfare, yet as well there is love and tenderness. The term emotional rollercoaster is often used, I have to say that in the case of this story, it applies perfectly.” Says Richard from Welcome to my Worlds

“I thoroughly appreciated how all the stories weaved together perfectly. Giving the reader little insider peaks at what was going on behind the scenes. Building up the suspense.” Says Dash Fan Book Reviews

“Helen has a great ability to create powerful and rememberable characters.” Says Wrong Side of Forty Book Magic

“It is a great series with some brilliant characters and excellent story-telling.” Says Donna’s Book Blog

” I love a good psychological thriller, where I question everyone and everything.” Says Ashley’s Got Book Excitement

“It is called a Psychological Thriller, and it most definitely is that, but it’s much more. For me it was a time travel, love story, emotional thriller, as well as psychological thriller.” Says Sassy Redhead Book Reviews

“The second book in the Same Face Different Place series is as suspenseful as the first.  Ms. Christmas effectively creates cunning and sinister antagonists that give the reader a high level of intense foreboding.” Says The Eclectic Review

What next for ‘Same Face Different Place?’

The whole series is finished but I cannot resist going back and editing the books from time to time. Right now I’m enjoying ‘Retribution – Phase 1’ having picked it up for the first time in a year and tweaking a few things. Next I was to give Book 3 Pleasures another look, since out of all the books in the series, this is the one I enjoyed writing most.

At the same time, I am putting together an anthology of stories based on the lesser known characters of the series and hope to have the new book out this year…
