Blog Tour and Contest for Spider's Bite

 Spider's Bite: An Elemental Assassin Book
 by Jennifer Estep
 Pocket (January 26, 2010)

[The contest portion is closed]

My name is Gin, and I kill people.

They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

Now that a ruthless Air elemental has double-crossed me and killed my handler, I'm out for revenge. And I'll exterminate anyone who gets in my way -- good or bad. I may look hot, but I'm still one of the bad guys. Which is why I'm in trouble, since irresistibly rugged Detective Donovan Caine has agreed to help me. The last thing this coldhearted killer needs when I'm battling a magic more powerful than my own is a sexy distraction...especially when Donovan wants me dead just as much as the enemy.

I must admit, I'm pretty scared of spiders in real life. I'm afraid that all the spiders I ever flushed down the drain will merge together into a giant one and come and get me! I do have a couple of pieces of jewelry with spider motifs, however, and I think their webs can be lovely after it has rained.

Sarah said...

I have an irrational fear of spiders - I know that there is no reason to be scared of them but having grown up with a Mum who screamed & climbed onto a chair everytime she saw one my fear is ingrained LOL

I've heard lots of great things about this book though & would love to read it - thanks for hosting the giveaway :o)

Hi Patricia.

I am a Follower via Google
I get email updates as well

I am an International entry.

I am a animal lover and that includes frogs, sbakes and spiders.
I won't let my husband kill any of the above if they get in the house.
I tell him spiders are lucky.

My daughter, however,is terrified of spiders and if she sees even a tiny, tiny one she yells for me to come and remove it.

Different strokes I suppose.

Spiders creep me out. I hate when they're in my house. But, when safely behind a glass cage, they can be pretty. I'm a follower on blogger and twitter. I'm also an email subscriber. juliecookies(at)gmail.com

I hate spiders. I think they are too scary. Tarantulas are especially scary.

Daelith said...

I'm another one who thinks spider's are creepy as all get out. They rank right up there with clowns. (Can you tell I was influenced by Stephen King at a young age.) I remember trying to watch the movie, Arachnophobia, and just about climbing up the back of my chair from nerves during it.

Little spiders, even Daddy Long Legs, don't bother me - much. However, the giant ones that build webs on my clothes line - those creep me out!

I hate spiders, all those legs kind of wig me out. Though my kids are so afraid of them that I am the one who ends up killing them or putting them outside.

Outside, spiders are okay. I don't tolerate them in the house. They have to be killed when they invade my space.

I really do not care for them. If I see one I get creeped out and itch. Luckily my cat does not have that problem and usually takes care of them for me.

I am scared of spider. I think it is because some of them are poisonous and the fact that they crawl (and I can feel it in my skin.)

I'm terrified of spiders - that said I know they have a good place because they eat mosquitoes and here in NC anything that eats mosquitoes is a good thing.


Cherry said...

What do I think of spiders? - I view them only as creepy, crawly creatures. Not very glamorous :(

What do I think of spiders? Not a fan. They seriously creep me out. What creeps me out worse? The random statistic that each person eats something like eight spiders a year in their sleep. Gross. (+1)

House spiders should not be squished because they bring good luck.
But poisonous spiders are a totally different kettle of fish!

Hi patricia! I am both a follower and a subscriber. I am soooo wanting to get my hands on this book! In answer to the spider question, I don't hate them, yet I don't like them either. Out in the yard they eat bad bugs, but I really don't want them in my house. I was also bitten by a Brown Recluse spider a few years back, and it was horrible. Have a good one! bpatrick64113@sbcglobal.net

As long a spiders don't bother me I don't bother them. LOL Spiders can be bothersome when they spin their webs in your door way but I just pull the web down and don't bother them.
