Snark Blogfest and Celebrating New Release

LG Keltner is celebrating three years of blogging. Today she is also hosting The Sarcasm, Snark and Sass Blogfest. Here is the point of this barrel of fun below.

 On Friday, January 9th, 2015, give me a post that celebrates something sarcastic, snarky, or just satisfyingly sassy. You can give me an example from real life, a favorite film or book, or you can give me an original piece of fiction. The sarcasm can either be well understood, or hilariously misunderstood.

My contribution comes from the movie Frozen. I really wanted to use this line and not only found the quote but an image to go with it in just one Google search. Thanks Google.

Hey. There is no way for anyone to predict someone wore gloves to hide ice powers. I mean, come on.

Alec John Bell has a new book out. it is his second book and this ambitious teen author is doing a paranormal series this time. Give up for Forbidden Darkness. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Title: Forbidden Darkness

Series: The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles Book One

Author: Alec John Belle

Genre: Paranormal

Purchase: Kindle, Paperback available at Createspace

Summary: One girl. Four friends. Five days. A darkness that's been forbidden for 5,000 years.

Heather Hawkins thought that everything in her life was normal. All her life, the most she had to worry about was getting good grades, being a good daughter, and helping her best friend Kristen through her depression. With three days until her sixteenth birthday, everything in her life is about to change when she discovers the terrible truth.

She's a Monster Hunter and the lives of everyone she loves are about to be put in her hands.

After she learns that Kristen is a Monster Hunter, too, her training begins, but as a beginner, she isn't allowed to fight Monsters--not yet anyway. But soon, something dark and sinister is going to take over the town, and with a mysterious guy haunting her dreams, a hot new trainer named Philip, and that fate of the world coming down on her, Heather wonders if she's good enough to save her friends and family from the Monsters coming their way.


  1. Congratulations, Alec.
    Maybe she had a thing about dirty snow?

  2. You make a good point. If I saw someone who wore gloves all the time, ice powers would not make my list of likely reasons why. Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  3. Alec, your book cover is stunning. Fits the title. Congrats and success.

    The blogfest seems interesting. Never heard of it before.

  4. Yeah, I don't think ice powers would be anyone's first guess.

  5. Not the brightest of characters in that Frozen movie... Yay for Alec and his monster hunters! As far as I'm concerned, you can't go wrong with a few monsters in your book. Thanks for signing up on the new hop linky!! :)

  6. Well, from now on if I see someone wearing gloves all the time that will be my first though! :)

  7. I'd have assumed they were a germ phobe. Definitely wouldn't have thought of the ice powers either!

  8. Nope. Ice Powers would definitely not come to mind. But now it will!

  9. I just saw your new cover on Elizabeth's blog. It's really, really good. And now I should think about wearing gloves more often. :)

  10. Ha ha. Good choice!

    Sounds like an interesting book.

  11. Yes, your piece of sarcasm think it's well understood!

  12. I love sarcasm! The worst is when other people think you're serious though...

  13. That's what I thought when I saw the movie. I thought, "Was she supposed to just assume she was wearing gloves to hide her magic?" The dirt excuse makes more sense!
