5 Truths and 3 Lies: Shadow Eyes Blog Tour and Kindle Fire Giveaway

Thanks for hosting me on my tour, Sharon!  I am super happy to be here!  Now let’s have some fun, shall we?
(First, don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter below for a chance to win a print copy of Shadow Eyes, your full name in the sequel, and a KINDLE FIRE!)

Okay, I know the original game is called 2 Truths and a Lie, but I’m going to bend the rules a little and do 5 Truths and 3 Lies.  That just sounds more invasive and, therefore, more fun.
I’ll tell you which ones of mine are lies and explain the truths tomorrow in a comment (so check in tomorrow or subscribe to this post), but for Iris…you’ll just have to read the book.  Cruel, I know.  J
Feel free to put your vote in as to which ones you think are lies or not!

First, the author:

(5 Truths and 3 Lies) 

  1. I accidentally stabbed my sister in her toe as a child.
  2. I have witnessed buffalo stampede outside my RV.
  3. I have a tattoo.
  4. I have the highest rank on Dance Central.
  5. I have been to Europe.
  6. My husband has had multiple kidney stones.
  7. I have been bungee jumping.
  8. I dressed up as Katniss for the Hunger Games premier. 
Now, the main character, Iris:

(5 Truths and 3 Lies)

  1. I have a phobia of mirrors.
  2. I witnessed someone cheating on someone else.
  3. I had to be hospitalized with an unknown illness.
  4. I have an obsession with penguins.
  5. I almost crashed my car into another on an icy road.
  6. My mom has been married 3 times.
  7. I fell while ice-skating on a first date.
  8. I have a reoccurring nightmare.
Shadow Eyes Synopsis:

Iris Kohl lives in a world populated by murky shadows that surround, harass, and entice unsuspecting individuals toward evil.  But she is the only one who can see them.  She’s had this ability to see the shadows, as well as brilliantly glowing light figures, ever since an obscure, tragic incident on her fourteenth birthday three years earlier. 
Although she’s learned to cope, the view of her world begins to shift upon the arrival of three mysterious characters.  First, a handsome new teacher whose presence scares away shadows; second, a new friend with an awe-inspiring aura; and third, a mysterious and alluring new student whom Iris has a hard time resisting despite already having a boyfriend.
As the shadows invade and terrorize her own life and family, she must ultimately revisit the most horrific event of her life in order to learn her true identity and become the hero she was meant to be.

  7. Thanks for stopping by everyone! I'm glad you're having fun Denise! Well, my sister, Erin, guessed them all right, so just see her comment above. Gee, I wonder how she did that. Haha! Let me explain them -

    1st T - I was young, eating our shared kiwi with the knife we used to cut it, she stole my kiwi, I reacted by throwing the knife down, and it accidentally sliced between her toes...
    2nd F - This is true for my husband but not me.
    3rd T - I actually have a tattoo of my title, Shadow Eyes, on the back of my neck, and I love it!
    4th T - I used the Dance Central on Kinnect for exercise and, apparently, and pretty good at it.
    5th F - Sooooo want to go to Europe before I die!
    6th T - My poor husband...
    7th F - Never!
    8th T - What can I say? I'm a huge Hunger Games fan, and I already had the long, dark hair. :)

  8. Great post, Dusty and Sharon. Congrats on the tour. Looks like it's a huge success.:)

  9. What a fun game! Great work on the book :)

  10. Ok, I could see how you could accidently stab your sister but I am not buying the stampede thing!
