Getting to Know You: The Characters of The Corridors of the Dead, Part 1

Before I get started, just a reminder that today is the first day of our Four Bloggers, Four Books, Two Days promotion. I’ve contributed The Kayson Cycle, and all proceeds from sales of my short story will go to Doctors Without Borders. From yesterday’s post:

Here’s how it works: on November 28 and/or 29, purchase 1 or all 4 of the debut author’s books listed here. Then forward each of your purchase receipts that Amazon emails you, to : and get up to 4 entries into a draw for a $80 Amazon gift card.  That way we have your name and email to let you know when you win!

On top of that, two random commenters picked from two of our participating blogs will receive $5 gift Amazon gift cards . So leave a comment and let us know what you think of the promo, our authors, our works, even just say hi, we’re not too proud to beg. You’d be helping us out and you’d be helping out your favorite blogger, as the blogger with the most comments also wins a prize. 

Now, on with today’s show: introducing you, the reader, to the characters of The Corridors of the Dead. Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive listing; I’m not going to talk about Guard #2, but I think it’s a good idea to get these out there as part of my release week specials. I view these as the equivalent of bonus features on a DVD or Blu-Ray, offering not only information to inform your purchase, but something to deepen your understanding of the story once it’s finished. These will eventually sit up top as part of the Corridors official page. So come with me and learn more about these characters after the jump. Continue reading

  3. Post about it on your facebook page or profile and either link me or send a screenshot to crimnos @, and you’ll get three entries.
  4. Purchase the book and forward the receipt to crimnos @, and you’ll get four entries.

The Kayson Cycle is part of a blog tour with three other fantastic writers (seriously, check out their books too) where you can win up to an $80 Amazon gift card (enough to buy a Kindle! Or a butt-load of books). Details after the jump. Continue reading
