Hocus Pocus Hotel ~ Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

This is Sher A Hart, taking over the first part of my blog partner Paul R Hewlett’s post because he had shoulder surgery Monday. So before we go on to the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop, I’d like to ask visitors to wish him well. Paul’s job as a salesman involves a lot a heavy lifting, and this is his second shoulder surgery because of it. Also, he forgot to mention something of HUGE importance. I am very excited to announce the upcoming November release of Lionel’s Christmas Adventure, third in the Lionel’s Grand Adventure chapter book series.

As you know, writers have to make a living writing before they can quit their day jobs. I hope book bloggers and authors who stop by for this hop will consider taking part in Paul’s next book launch. If you have a blog or website and would like a free publicity spot on the Rafflecopter for an Amazon gift card for a post during his blog tour in November and early December, please sign up here.  Thanks in advance if you decide to take a spot on his tour! Now I’ll turn the post back over to Paul, who pre-wrote before his surgery.


Hi there everyone! Paul R. Hewlett here. Now for the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop. Hocus Pocus Hotel by Michael Dahl is available as a giveaway to US and Canada residents right here on your very own Sher A. Hart blog.

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads for Hocus Pocus Hotel. Ever since it was built by the great magician Abracadabra, the hotel Tyler Yu lives in has had its share of mysterious events. Ghosts wandering the halls, a magician who vanishes into thin air – Ty can’t figure these things out on his own. But Charlie Hitchcock, with his photographic memory, might just be the partner the school bully needs. Together, they’ll solve magical mysteries beyond your wildest imagination. Now for the trailer.
