The Week in This Morbid Life news

The first week of the This Morbid Life blog tour is over! It’s been pretty amazing so far.

First off, the book has gotten some great reviews, including:

“Rhoads is the adventurous woman who’s done all the outrageous and brave things people like me wanted to do but were too scared. And she’s lived to tell about them. Five life-affirming stars!” Priscilla Bettis on Bookbub

“Candid, raw, unfiltered…Loren’s essays about life, death, dying, and living are utterly fascinating – completely engrossing. I picked up the book to read one or two chapters and before I knew it I had completed 3/4 of the book. I just couldn’t put it down.” — Roxanne Rhoads, Roxanne’s Realm 

“I almost wished that I was sitting in a coffee shop with the author and she was telling me these anecdotes, experiences and vignettes herself over a flat white. This is such a great book to dip into like a huge box of chocolates. It brought back memories of the ‘80’s and ‘90’s especially the ‘Modern Primitives’ book which gets a namecheck. I can’t recommend ‘This Morbid Life’ enough as I enjoyed it so much.” Carole Tyrell on Goodreads

The pieces I’ve written for other people’s blogs have started to go live:

A Bewitching Guide to Halloween posted my video introducing some of my favorite stories in This Morbid Life.

Jennifer Brozek’s Tell Me featured my guest post about how I grew into being morbid.

Fang-tastic Books featured an excerpt from my “Anatomy Lesson” essay.

The Home for Wayward Spirits published my guest post about Near Escapes, a local tour company that took me to visit a local crematorium.

The Paranormalists featured my “Tips for Hunting Ghosts.”

And finally, the Creatively Green Write-at-Home Mom interviewed me about This Morbid Life and its followup book, coming next year.

The blog tour continues for 3 more weeks! The schedule is in last week’s blog post.
