#UnexTex is featured on Patricia Lynne’s blog today

Welcome to Day 2 of the #UnexTex Unexpected Texas Book Release Blog Tour for my quirky travel guide Unexpected Texas, which is now selling on Amazon. Whee!

Today, my book is featured at the blog of fellow writer Patricia Lynne, Independent YA Author Like me, Patricia is intrigued by haunted places, UFO sightings, the paranormal, and other eerie fodder. She writes Young Adult stories that often feature paranormal beings struggling with human issues. Make sure to check out her books, including Being Human, over on her Amazon page.

Day 2 #UnexTex Prizes

The prize pack I’m offering for Patricia Lynne’s stop along the #UnexTex book release tour includes a paperback copy of my book, Unexpected Texas, an Unexpected Texas notebook for you to record your own anomalous events, a video of “Cowboys and Aliens,” and a packet of Yoda Post-It notes (because there is no try, there are only to-do lists!)

UFO’s in Unexpected Texas

Speaking of extraterrestrials, I live about 20 minutes away from the grave site of an alleged space crash. It’s even mentioned on a Texas State Historical Marker at the cemetery.

This is just one of the many offbeat and overlooked places I mention in the book Unexpected Texas. To see a photo of the alien’s headstone and read all about this bizarre event check out my post, Alien Gravesite in Aurora Cemetery: The Roswell of Texas?

  1. It was a blast having you on my blog. We should do it again next book.

    • Tui Snider Tui Snider

      Oh, yeah! Thanks again, and likewise. Your interview questions were a lot of fun. :D

  2. I love the story about the alien buried in Texas! It is so exciting that you are finally doing this! I hope you do something really special to celebrate publishing your book! Here’s to it rocking through the book world!

      Hiya Morgan! I like your idea for celebrating. I had planned on doing that last night at the Fort Worth Oscar Party, but it was cancelled due to an ice storm, so I didn’t get a chance to celebrate my book, y’know? Hmmm…I need to have a champagne toast. Maybe I will at the Facebook party on my birthday. :D

      • When my first book came out we went to the Olive Garden and I ate what I wanted, had port for the first time, and had their decadent chocolate cheesecake! :D

        I haven’t celebrated for the new book yet, maybe after the book launch coming up. I have to think of something fun to do, something I can mark off my 50 things list. Man I haven’t worked on that FOREVER!

        • Tui Snider Tui Snider

          Mmm, celebrating at an Italian restaurant sounds good to me! There’s one in Fort Worth where all the servers are also singers. Very fun place! I’m seriously thinking of writing a book about the funnest places to eat around here, too. The research would be a blast! :D

    I didn’t know there was a ‘Roswell of Texas.’ Thanks for sharing!

    • Tui Snider Tui Snider

      Yeah, isn’t that bizarre? When I first read about this, it was in a crusty old book I’d found at a used bookstore. I was delighted to find out that I only live a short drive away from the site. I was lucky enough to see the actual headstone, too. Sadly, it’s since been swiped!
