Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Blog Tour: Random Magic by Sasha Soren

This tour stop is brought to you by Other Shelf Tours

Random Magic by Sasha Soren
Release Date: January 2010 (although it looks like Amazon has it available now)

From Amazon:
When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes. Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is. Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Struths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.

Honesty alert! I didn't finish this book. Time, happenstance, circumstances being what they are - it just didn't happen. (Ooo - I bet Winnie could come up with a cool explanation for the exact reason why or why not this did (or didn't?) happen) hehe.
So, with that said, any thoughts or opinions of mine that I share here are based on about half the book.

Now, with that said, there is one thing I know for certain about Random Magic -- it sure is random and quite a bit magical :)

While it's not really my cup of tea, I really do think there are others out there would very much enjoy it. If this makes any sense, I think it's too random for me. It's the kind of book I would have to read from begining to end without stoping once. I found myself getting lost by the storyline each time I picked it up again to read some more. The writting style reminded me of an author named Mark Leyner. I read his books in the same way - in one sitting - and they are pretty random :)

So! Rather then going by my word on this one, I urge you to check out the multiple links, blinks, blurgs and blurbs I have listed below.

A big thank you goes out to Kate from The Neverending Shelf for founding Other Shelf Tours and for all her hard work!

Another shout out to Sasha for her enthusiasm and love for Random Magic. I wish you nothing but the best!
