A Frozen Crimes Blog Hop with Chrys Fey

Writers helping writers. This is how life should be. We should help each other when we can. It is a privilege to help Chrys Fey with her new book launch and blog hop. 

Frozen Crimes Blog Hop Prompt: Whom would you want to be stuck with during a blizzard, and what would you do? 

Oooo! A blizzard. Yep! It’s true. I love snow. As long as I don’t have to drive in it. 

We must have all the needed amenities of course:

a warm fire

running water

plenty of delicious food prepared by an expert chef

dark chocolate. 

Okay, so maybe chocolate isn’t considered a “needed” amenity for you, but it sure is for me. 

Now we’re not permitted to use family, so whom should I be stuck inside with during a blizzard? 

I’m always looking for peace and quiet and uninterrupted writing time with my family of seven always around. 

Maybe I should be stuck inside with Jennie Nash of Author Accelerator. But in order to have her undivided attention, the internet must be down. She is an extremely successful Book Coach and I want her to focus on me and my college memoir. She’s from Santa Barbara, so she probably wouldn’t like to go out in the snow anyway. We’d have that expert chef and plenty of chocolate to keep our energy up. And someone to keep the fire going. A fresh pot of hot tea and some scones. Hmm … this sounds good to me. What do you think?

When disasters strike around every corner, is it possible to have a happily-ever-after?



BLURB: Beth and Donovan are expecting their first child. Life couldn’t get any better…until a stalker makes his presence known. This person sends disturbing messages and unsettling items, but it isn’t long before his menacing goes too far.

Hoping for a peaceful Christmas, Donovan takes Beth to Michigan. Days into their trip, a winter storm named Nemesis moves in with the goal of burying the state. Snowdrifts surround their house, and the temperature drops below freezing.

Except, the storm isn’t the only nemesis they must face. Everyone’s lives are at stake—especially that of their unborn child. Will they survive, or will they become a frozen crime?

The crunch of the shovel pounding into the snow and ice filled his ears. It was all he could hear. The rest of the street was silent beneath its wintry blanket. Breathing was difficult with the icy air clogging his lungs. His nose burned. His throat was dry and on fire. But he ignored it, focusing on his task.

Crack, crack, crack.

He jabbed the shovel into a hunk of snow. On the third hit, it shattered into several pieces. He scooped them up and flung them to the side. He surveyed what remained. There was one big ball in the middle of the path that needed to be dealt with next. He moved over to it and struck it. That one impact had it severing in two. He was about to hit it again when something crashed into the back of his head.

Explosions of white light danced over his vision. Pain enveloped his skull.

The shovel slipped from his fingers. Blackness cloaked his mind, coaxing him into its depths.

Beth. Her name was a whisper in his head, as if his thoughts were being sucked into a wormhole.

His legs collapsed under his weight.

Cold. It seeped into him, consuming him. And then his consciousness fled down that same void that ate his thoughts.

  1. Chocolate is an amenity to me! 😀

    Nice choice. You'd get so much out of being stuck with Jennie Nash during a blizzard.

    Thank you so much for participating in the blog hop!

    P.S. don't forget to visit the other participants. 🙂

  2. Absolutely, Chrys! Dark chocolate and snow; what more could anyone ask for–except for Jennie Nash to help with your manuscript.

    This is wonderful being a part of your book launch. I will visit everyone's blogs. All the luck with the launch! Thanks for letting Adventures in Writing be a part of it.

  3. Sounds wonderful, Victoria Marie. Dark chocolate is an absolute necessity for me. I have an emergency stash just in case there is ever a shortage. I would dearly love an expert chef under any circumstances. Take care!

  4. While I understand what you're talking about with the internet, in order for me to have Jennie's undivided attention with my memoir, we need to have no internet. No phones would probably be a good idea, too. Of course I could simply lock them away for emergencies.

    Thanks so much for leaving a note on Adventures in Writing, M.J. All best to you!

  5. I'm a tea person myself. But when I say tea, I mean loose tea in a teapot, a tea cozy to keep the pot hot, and a china tea cup and saucer. Don't get me wrong, Natalie. Milk chocolate is great too. The internet? It definitely has a useful purpose, but when I'm hip deep in writing, I need to stay away.

    It's always a pleasure seeing you here at Adventures in Writing. Thanks so much for your note. Enjoy your week!

  6. If I had an "emergency stash" of chocolate, the kids would probably find it. They can smell it as much as I can! I think that's why I moved to dark chocolate. The kids don't like dark as much as milk chocolate. Wouldn't an expert chef be wonderful? Gosh! I'd like that under any circumstance.

    Thanks so much for your note here at Adventures in Writing. Have a beautiful day!

  7. It’s interesting how many of your readers boast about chocolate during a blizzard, Vic. My number one amenity would be a fire! I could even skip the company. Aaah. It sounds nice right now to be sitting by a fire during a blizzard – with enough food stocked up and running water and electricity – and read a book or write. Alone. Heck. I could do this all winter! 🙂

  8. Are you permitted to have input on the cover, Chrys? It is certainly beautiful. Does Kim only work through The Wild Rose Press? Thanks for sharing this information here at Adventures in Writing. Have a beautiful day!

  9. Uninterrupted writing time, Liesbet? Yes, I could write all winter long if I had that. The alone part would be the difficult thing for me. I reward myself with reading a good book after a long day of writing. Mmm… in front of a warm fire. A hot cup of tea by my side. Yes!

    Always a pleasure finding you here at Adventures in Writing, Liesbet. Hope all is going well.

  10. Hello and welcome to Adventures in Writing, Samantha! Thanks for your comment and your blog link. I'm always thinking positively. Except for playing in the snow–I told you I like snow–I should get some words down on my WIP. All best to you!

  11. Hello and welcome to Adventures in Writing! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your blog link. I'll keep you in mind when I finish my college memoir. Thanks again for visiting Adventures in Writing. Have a beautiful day!
