Hey everyone! I am super excited to announce the CHILLING HOLIDAYS from VAULT Tour I'm hosting! These are all comics and graphic Novels from Vault's adult line. There's THIRTEEN comics to choose from! 

The tour runs from December 5th-January 13th and will have 1 stop a day on a Blog, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Hive, Facebook, or wherever you post and will run weekdays and weekends.


Guaranteed to haunt your  sugar plum dreams!

WINTER is the second scariest time of year. And it’s not just because of the terror of last-minute gift buying, frightening crowds, and haunting memories of holiday gatherings past. Specters cast dark shadows in snow, frost covers every inch of your sanctuary, and a variety of monsters from world legend and lore stalk your dreams from the child-eating Icelandic Yule Cat, to Northern Europe’s icy wielder of justice Frau Hölle and her Wild Hunt, to Germany’s devilish anti-Santa, Krampus, the Kallikantzaros evil goblins from Greece, and the Alpine witch Frau Perchta and her Kraumpus-like minions, the Perchten.

VAULT Comics knows this terror, feels your pain, and wants to share the horror…

Enter VAULT’s bone-chilling list of most popular horror, fantasy, and science fiction titles, with the best talent in SFFH comics with a CHILLING HOLIDAY Holiday Special!  This Winter, slay/sleigh those demons of indecision with the best in creator-owned Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror!

REVIEW COPIES- All of these will have physical copies for US Residents only if you choose to do a review. I will also have ebooks of them all for those that prefer eBooks or are outside the US.



This tour will be a bit different since there are so many titles. You can absolutely choose to review one or more of the books but you can also just do a guest post, excerpt, or spotlight for one or multiple titles! 

Details on giveaways are TK.

If you'd like to be considered to be a stop on any of these tours, please first sign up as a tour host and fill out the form below.

As she and her daughter try to settle into a new life, Kat discovers that sometimes home is best forgotten.

From NY Times best-selling author, Daniel Kraus (The Shape of Water, Trollhunters, The Living Dead), and rising star Chris Shehan, comes a haunting vision of America's prettiest autumn.

Collects Autumnal #1-8, the complete series.

This Hungry Earth Reddens Under Snowclad Hills.

1899, Yukon Territory. A frozen frontier, bloodied and bruised by the last great Gold Rush. But in the lawless wastes to the North, something whispers in the hindbrains of men, drawing them to a blighted valley, where giant spidertracks mark the snow and impossible guns roar in the night.

To Brokehoof, where gold and blood are mined alike. Now, stumbling towards its haunted forests comes a woman gripped not by greed -- but the snarling rage of a mother in search of her child...

From Si Spurrier (Way of X, Hellblazer) and Nathan C. Gooden (Barbaric, Dark One) comes THE RUSH, a dark, lyrical delve into the horror and madness of the wild Yukon.

Collects the entire series. For fans of The Terror, Fortitude, Coda, and Moonshine.

"The Rush is a chilling bit of historical horror. Rugged and raw and thoroughly researched. It's got such a wonderfully creepy sense of menace but most of all it's the moving story of a mother searching for her child, that's its beating heart. Wonderful work." -- Victor Lavalle

"The Rush is a splendidly savage tale of frontier scum and the doom they’ve brought down upon themselves, and the innocents cursed to suffer alongside them. I for one can’t wait to see more." -- Garth Ennis.


About The Book:

Owen the Barbarian is under a witches' curse to make amends for his murderous past. His bloodthirsty talking Axe is his moral compass. And he'll do whatever it takes to do good, even it if it means cleaving a few skulls. Even if it means helping a witch.


Owen the Barbarian has been cursed to do good with what remains of his life. His bloodthirsty weapon, Axe, has become his moral compass with a drinking problem. Together they wander the realm, foredoomed to help any who seek assistance. But there is one thing Owen hates more than a life with rules: Witches.

About The Book:

About The Book:

From Book 1: Worried your partner is cheating? Need a missing person found? Gina Meyers is the Private Investigator for you.

Collects the entire eight-issue series.

"I read this at a gasp, horrifed by the bloody events as much as the too-familiar feel of a society self-destructing--even before the monsters come. A palpitating whirlwind of a start."   -- Daniel Kraus (New York Times bestselling author of The Shape of Water, Trollhunters,The Teddies Saga, and Vault Comics' The Autumnal)

"As brilliant and incisive as ever, Peter Milligan questions what makes us human, and what motivates us to make the terrible decisions we inevitably make.” -- Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Eternals; The Wicked + The Divine; Once & Future)

"Human Remains might be the scariest Vault series to date." – Gate Crashers

About The Book:

When the music-scene murders start happening again, Jackie Mayer is ready. He knows the secrets of the past. Or, least he thinks he does. But the gods of rock are darker than he thought, and the conspiracy he uncovers is more insidious than he could have imagined.


Music, murder, magic, and mayhem.

Rock fan Jackie Mayer possesses an uncanny, almost unearthly talent: he’s able to connect the legends, secrets, curses, whispers, mysteries, and conspiracies in the music world. He knows musicians hunger for fame and fortune – making them easy marks. Old Scratch likes nothing better than the burn of desire – whether a 19th century violin virtuoso, a young Blues man down in Memphis, or an occult-obsessed guitar genius. When a pattern of unsolved 1970s music-scene murders resumes in present-day Los Angeles, no one sees the connection except Jackie. Together with muck-raking music journalist Dorothy Buell, they soon uncover a vast conspiracy involving a legendary band, demonic possession, and sacrifices to the dark gods of rock. Jackie is drawn into the underbelly of the music world – and he’s going to have a devil of a time getting out alive.

Collects the complete ten-issue series

About The Book:


“Epic from start to finish.” —Marie Lu, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Warcross

“A brilliant and breathless twist on classic mythology!” —Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lunar Chronicles

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals. They are hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.

Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory after her family was murdered by a rival line. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man—now a god—responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek her out: Castor, a childhood friend Lore believed to be dead, and Athena, one of the last of the original gods, now gravely wounded.

The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and a way to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore's decision to rejoin the hunt, binding her fate to Athena's, will come at a deadly cost—and it may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.

From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Darkest Minds comes a sweepingly ambitious, high-octane tale of power, destiny, love, and redemption.

Blog Tour- DESIGNED BY DESTINY by @mayatylerauthor With An Excerpt & A $25 Amazon GC #Giveaway! @Tirgearr, & @RockstarBkTours

Jaime | 12:00 AM | Please comment!

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the DESIGNED BY DESTINY by Maya Tyler Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!


About The Book:

Title: DESIGNED BY DESTINY (Fairy Godmothers Incorporated, #1)

Author: Maya Tyler

Pub. Date: November 15, 2022

Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing

Formats:  Paperback, eBook

Pages: 216

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo

After a painful break-up in university, Bethany Clarke has sworn off love to focus on her career. From her humble South Side beginnings to her position as an architect intern at a prestigious Chicago firm, she's proven to be a hard worker and is proud of her accomplishments. In three years, she’ll be a fully licensed architect which is more important to her than anything else.

Confirmed bachelor Nicholas Grey is more than the playboy perpetrated by the tabloids. Now his position as CEO of the architecture firm Grey & Company is on the line, and his mother’s interference is making things more difficult. Nick’s committed to his work, but, in order to be taken seriously, he needs to land a huge project. A stable personal life will help guarantee the contract.

Fairy Godmother Faye Delmore hears Nick’s plea and steps in to help. Posing as a publicist, she suggests a strategy to polish his public image, which includes convincing Beth to play his wife. Faye knows Nick needs the huge project to save his job, but she also knows he needs Beth in his life.

What happens when you add a fairy godmother who loves playing matchmaker into the equation? A future designed by destiny.



Nick resisted the compulsion to pace in the foyer of his apartment. Beth was in her room getting ready, and he knew she’d need help with her zipper. His hands felt clammy. He wiped them against the black trousers of his tailored wool gabardine suit. It wasn’t nerves. Not about Beth, anyway. She was a nice girl. Not his type. Ergo, he wasn’t nervous. There was some other explanation for the electric zing running through his body at the thought of seeing her again.


When he’d heard that thud come from Beth’s room last night… Well, it worried him more than he’d like to admit. And, while he was on the topic of stuff he’d rather not admit… At the time, he’d been standing by his door, hand hovering above the knob, contemplating about going to her. The way she’d supported him with his mother… They’d felt like a true team. And then, they’d had a moment, right? It felt like a moment. An intense, surreal, out of time moment when they were both drawn to each other. But he’d moved away even though he’d wanted… well, it didn’t matter what he wanted if Beth didn’t feel the same. And he couldn’t be certain of her feelings. After he helped with her zipper, she’d rejected him. But did she back away then because he’d backed away before?


A series of steady clicks against the marble tile announced Beth’s presence. He swallowed his disappointment. “You didn’t need help with your zipper?”


She smiled broadly, explaining with animated hand motions how she’d used a metal coat hanger to zip up her dress.


His disappointment morphed into marvel at her ingenuity.


“You’re staring. Do I look okay?” She turned around in a slow circle, tilting on her heels in a dramatic end of the runway-type pose.


“Yes, beautiful.” He caught her hand, drawing her closer, smiling smugly when he heard the quiet catch of her breath. She wasn’t immune to him. He leaned in, inhaling her light perfume, ghosting his lips along the column of her slender neck. Her pulse thrummed erratically under his touch.


“Nick.” She took a step back. “There’s no one watching now.”


Her words had the effect of a cold bucket of water. Caught up in the moment, he’d temporarily forgotten their more-business-than-pleasure arrangement. “Practice.” He offered her a rehearsed lopsided smile. “So you don’t jump like a rabbit every time I’m near.”


Smiling back, she seemed to accept his quipped response. He looped her arm with his, coaxing her closer as they waited for his private elevator. Waves of anxiety radiated from her tense body. That wouldn’t do. Anyone with half a brain paying even the slightest bit of attention to them would spot the ruse.


Nick moved his hand to the small of her back, tugging her closer. When she looked up to question his action, he pressed his lips against hers. He felt her muscles tense under his touch. Instead of retreating, he redoubled his efforts, deepening the kiss until Beth surrendered to his amorous assault. The fight in her floated away as she sunk into his embrace. She returned his kiss as ardently as he ever could’ve imagined. He knew a passionate woman lived beyond the surface, the

professional armor she showed the rest of the world. Suddenly, kissing her was more important than anything else. He wanted to unzip her dress, the task he’d been cheated of, and bare her luscious body to his intense perusal. He didn’t care about the world outside this room—his company or his obligations.


Beth’s hands pressed against his chest, curling into his dress shirt. He was glad she felt comfortable enough to explore his body. Thoughts of hers had plagued him since Vegas. The honeymoon had been too short, but there was no need to rush things now. If she felt the same as he did—
