I know a secret. Can you guess what it is? 
Writers and storytellers are thought to be liars, but we’re not. We keep secret truths in our pockets, wallets, purses, and, most especially in our hearts. We know that most people aren’t ready to hear these secret truths head on, so we hide them. We hide them behind the thin veil of fantasy or snark, horror or suspense. These tales we weave are not lies, not falsehoods; they are, at their very foundations, truths.
But, let’s get back to my secret, or should I say, my secret within a secret. I’m not Rachel. But then, I’m pretty sure most of you figured that out due to the very nature of this particular blog tour. The big question is: Who am I? Really, who are any of us? I mean really?
When it comes right down to it, when you read these words on your computer screen, it could be just about anyone. Well, if you want the prize – yeah, I said prize – you’ve got to guess. Luckily for you, you’ve only got eleven people to guess from. Eleven to one odds, not bad, even if you’re in Vegas. 
Still, Rachel will send a free copy of the new horror anthology, The Evil Within to each and every unique poster to this blog. Since she’s not here, she can’t argue; besides if you saw it in print, it must be true.
Would I lie?

Visit the awesome Pinky’s Pub for a review for further proof and leave a comment if you want to receive extra chances to win the gift baskets! Enter this phrase: ‘SNARK ROCKS’ which will gain three extra entries toward winning Rachel’s gift baskets.

And don’t miss Alchemy of Scrawl for her review contribution of both The Evil Within AND A Walk In The Snark! Remember to comment with the special phrase! 
Seriously, though! You have to check out this new anthology of horror stories! Rachel and the Indie Book Collective have gone out of their way to find the very best tales of terror from the very best indie authors to keep you up late at night wondering what that sound outside your window was, or if you read Amber Scott’s contribution, “Dirt Nap” by, you might just worry about closing your eyes, afraid of where you’ll wake up. 
On the other hand, if you are the kind of person who likes to sleep at night, you might try some of the other writers on the tour:
For a lighthearted adventure, try Toonoplis by Jeremy Rodden, a book filled with characters you’ll love to love.
If romance is your cup of tea, try Change of Heart by Jackie Chanel, a romance with drama and wit, adding a breath of fresh air to traditional themes of the romance genre.
I wish I had time and space to go into all the terrific books and writers in the Blog Tour De Force, but I’ve got to get back to work on my next book. I left my readers with a bit of a cliffhanger, and I’ve got a big choice to make on where to take the series next.
I’ll leave you with this: I hear Rachel has a BIG prize for one of her visitors, something really great like, I don’t know, maybe a way cool basket filled with Halloween goodies from Bath and Body Works.  Oh heck, she is giving out three

I bet if anyone guesses correctly (ouch) sorry, even attempts a guess, as to where she is (or was – remember, the tour started this past Monday), they’ll get a free copy of her #1 bestselling eBook A Walk in the Snark. (Her elbows are sharp).

Rachel wants me to remind you that every visitor who says these words in their comment: ‘SNARK ROCKS’ will gain three extra entries toward winning Rachel’s gift baskets. And don’t forget your email! She can’t send you any books without an email. 

And don’t forget: every commenter is entered into the drawing for a FREE KINDLE! That’s right. All twelve books loaded on to a Kindle. Hey, I want that.
Would I put words in Rachel’s mouth… err… on her blog? MAAAAYYYBBEEE. Her story doesn’t scare me, even though it’s called, “There Are No Monsters.” I shouldn’t have to worry too much about her getting some kind of revenge on me for this. 
Should I?

    I'm beginning to think that I'm the only one who was treated poorly and thrown somewhere I don't want to be.  I think I need to kiss up to the IBC gods next time… if I get to have a next time… cause, you know, I might be dead.

  9. My guess, Ann Charles! Love your giveaways…hope I win something. And the magic words…Snark Rocks!!…for additional entry. Thanks so much.

  51. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Good guess, Miranda…are you correct? Only the Snarked one knows…

    Yea, the cover IS totally creepy. I can't look at it. 

  57. Pinky's Pub permalink

    Hi Rachel,

    I did a blog feature for “the Evil Within” today and posted it on the Pinky's Pub & Smashwords Facebook pages!  I hope it helps to get the word out!

    Oh, and “SNARK ROCKS”

    Thanks for the fun!

  65. This tour has been so wonderful! I can't wait to find out the mystery posters!


  66. Marlene permalink

    @Marlene: again, do I really write like a guy?

  68. Sarah Setar permalink

    Haha! I'm not sure who to guess.. Vicki Keire- is this you???


  69. Jennifer Boring permalink

    my guess is M. Todd Gallowglas

    my email is thehomemadewaygmail .com

    SNARK ROCKS (figured that if 1 snark rocks got me 3 entries, maybe 3 snark rocks would get me 9. LOL)

  70. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Nice try Jennifer, but I'm pretty sure the math doesn't work like that in Snarkland…

    I'm guessing Amber. 


  72. Sarah Setar permalink

    Ooh wait! Forgot to mention that I think SNARK ROCKS (x infinity) Wonder how many entries that got me? Hehe 🙂 Just kidding!  It totally does, though! 

    I think Rachel's hanging out over at Lacey Jackson Weatherford's blog where all the other cool people are at today:)

    Oh! And my guess was, and still remains, that this is Vicki Keire.

  73. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Eden, I'm pretty sure Rachel would say that you can never have too much snark.

  74. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Sarah, as I said before, I don't think that's how snark math works.

  75. Christy Gibbon permalink

    I'm guessing that Vicki Keire is here and Rachel is over at Amber's blog. And of course you know that Snark Rocks! christygibbon at juno dot com

  76. Elizabeth permalink

    This is my last vote and I hope everything matches up in the end!  My guess is Maxwell Cynn!  This has been great fun and I look forward to the next BTDF!  SNARK ROCKS!

  77. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    I'm sure she's excited about that, Maxwell. I'll pass it along. If I can find her. You'd think she'd be easy to find w/ that flaming red hair. She's wily, that one.

    Of course. We're all about spreading the word on great books! Jackie & Vickie do rock of course…those are excellent guesses. 

    But are they correct? hmmm….

  80. Jesilea permalink

    My guess is Augusto Pinaud.

  81. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Jesilea, interesting guess. Thanks for stopping by.

  82. Okay, let's see. Someone who “likes to sleep at night” probably wrote this, so no scary writers. How about Amber Scott? It's not a great guess, but just a guess. And where's Rachel? I think my guess was that she was at Jeremy Rodden's blog. And, oh yeah, SNARK ROCKS (not just because it gets me points, but because it's true).

    And I'm not much of a sleeper, so I can't wait to read some scary stories 🙂

    rlconnolly01 [at]

  83. iarvd permalink

    I think my guess is Jeremy Rodden….but I think I'll change it after the reveal!  HeeHee.
    Rachel doesn't have to send me a copy of her book because I already have A Walk in the Snark and SNARK ROCKS!!

  84. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Rosemarie.. I actually believe that sleep is a poor substitute for caffeine. But The stories in “The Evil Within” should work just as well.

  85. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Iarvd, convenient how that reveal might change a bunch of people's guesses, but I like the way you think.

  86. winnie permalink

    My guess is Maxwell Cynn because he's one of the choices left for me…

    As for where Rachel is, I'm guessing that she's over at Lacey's blog.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Looking forward to reading the books!

  127. I'm aware of the tour, but I have only seen one other entry, and I don't know who all the participants are. The most I can guess is I don't think it's Jeremy Rodden. And what the heck 'Snark Rocks!'.

  128. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Very cool! This is the first time I'm seeing this, but it's such a cool idea!  I will have to find out more.  Thanks, Mystery blogger!

  130. Pitaber permalink

    I'm gonna throw a dart in the dark lol…..  Vicki Keire? 🙂 Snark Rocks! Thank you very much! 🙂 Amber

  131. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Erica, you should take a look at all the fun we've had over the week on the other blogs. It's been my pleasure…. or at least it has until Rachel catches up with me.  After you've taken a gander at the other blogs, come back and make a guess!

  132. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for stopping by…. hmm…. a dart in the dark… that might make a great title for a story… hmm….. 

  133. Diana N. permalink

    It's been fun getting to know each author on the tour!
    I guess they mystery blogger today is Ann Charles.
    I believed Lacey started the tour on Amber Scott's blog.
    And I now know: SNARK RULES!

  134. Allyson permalink

    SNARK ROCKS! And thanks for the free read!! (And I've given up on guessing all these mystery authors, lol.)

    I really don't want to admit defeat…but…this guessing stuff is hard! I'll take a random and go with M Todd Gallowglas.

    Thanks for the fun and freebies!


  136. Diana N. permalink

    Man, this is what happens when a person tries to do two comments at one time! I meant to say that I believed Rachel started the tour on Lacey's blog. 
    Man Im glad its the weekend! 

  137. laTishajean permalink

    My Guess is Lacey Weatherford I really wish I could get one right 🙂 Thank you for all the fun and great posts. 'Snark Rocks!

  138. Are you by chance M. Todd Gallowglas? Let me just say ‘SNARK ROCKS’, lol.


  139. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    But can you truly say you know the authors until the reveal on Monday, and then go back and cross reference? #justsaying 

  140. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Don't give up! Just try. Even if, for no other reason than it amuses us to see what people guess.

  141. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    You never know. You might have one or two right. Find out on Monday.

    Glad that you enjoyed yourself on this tour.

  142. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for stopping by. There is a 1 in 11 chance that I am Mr. Gallowglas. Find out on Monday

  143. Enna permalink

    I am going to guess you are M. Todd Gallowglas. Thanks for an awesome tour!!! Loved it!!!

  145. Hi, I'm new to the blog tour so I can't even hazard a guess but thanks for the chance to get a free book! Snark Rocks

  146. Elliott2668 permalink

    here's my guess:) “Lacey Weatherford”
    Thank you this is great!

  147. Arthur permalink

    Hi, very nice blog. I am looking forward to reading The Evil Within.Thank-youmccallumgirls (at)

  148. Pinky's Pub permalink


    Thanks Rachel, I'll keep a running list of who leaves comments for you.

    I'm hoping to be a sponsor for the next blog tour!  I love these blog hops, they are so much fun and the authors are always so generous in giving their books away for FREE.  With other blog tours you have to jump through hoops just to get an entry for a CHANCE to win a free book!  These authors ROCK, they ALL give away their books and all we have to do is leave a comment.  Not to mention these authors really know how to write, it's not a book of dribble like most giveaways!

    Thank you to each and every author that has participated in this blog tour!  Your books look fantastic and I can't wait to read and review them.

    Readers, don't forget to leave a review for these fabulous authors once you finish reading all of these great freebies!  Don't you think that is the least we can do?


  149. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Glad you're enjoying the tour! 

  150. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for the kind words Arthur. No guess?

  151. Obviously Snark Rocks and I think this is an elaborate double bluff and it is Rachel herself posting from a secret shoe warehouse hidden in a hollowed out volcano. [email is simonklloyd at gmail dot com]

  152. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for the support and very kind words Pinky. I can't speak for Rachel or any of the other authors, but I appreciate your support.

    And yes! Please review, “like” and star all the books you read.

  153. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Really, Simon? You think I was writing and Rachel? WOWOWOWOW! Thanks so much. She doesn't know it, but she happens to be one of my heroes.

  154. Denise Z permalink

    Well I do not know if there is a cyber-genie or something out there that keeps track of just how long someone procrastinates at a site, but whoever or whatever is paying attention to me today is hollering get on with it you silly chit, just get your ### in gear (had to add a few hashmarks in Rachel's honor) and guess already.  Well, no I just can't do it yet so I will say “SNARK ROCKS” and if anyone has tooled around this blog there are many, many wonderful eyeopening moments of snarckalicious fun.  I have read some awesome reviews and even hopped over to facebook to like the new MANCODE: EXPOSED page and managed to leave a snarky witty comment.  Of course I do realize I am always funnier to myself than others, I admit it, but if it makes me smile, I don't care what the #### anybody else thinks of my humor.  After-all before I moved to the great Northwest I was a fellow OC gal and we've got grit; well maybe coffee grounds would be a better term, cause all us CA girls know that no sand sticks to us, it would not dare.  Okay drum-roll  here …….. because of the self-reflective and philosophical nature of this post by the mystery blog takeroverer and the fact that I have not yet has the opportunity to follow her very much I am going to guess Jackie Chanel.  However, I will reiterate once again that I am generally pretty clueless when it comes to clues, so if I have not guessed correctly, which is highly likely, and it is Agusto Pinaud or one of the other gentleman seeking to share their Thoreauish nature, please accept my apology in advance and whatever you do, don't go all Mancode about it or you will never escape this site alive LOL  Thank you all so much for the fun today. 


  155. Aw, thx Simon and Anonymous. No making me blush. It's not a good look for a redhead. Red on red? We try not to go there. 

    I just came by to say hi to my friends and fans. You guys are so special and wonderful. 

    And Anonymous — excellent job. Even I'm not sure who the heck you are. I have my guess but I shall keep it under my sunglasses.

    Now I must go spread the word about the last day of this FAB tour and ya know, make a martini or something … :)) 

  156. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Denise… Thanks for such a wonderful reply. I for one ############## love your ######## humor. Though, I have to say, I'm more of an Emerson man…woman…person. One of my favorite pieces of literature is “Self-Reliance,” however, the “Divinity School Address” is a close second.

    Glad you enjoyed the tour, have fun with the books, and see you on the next one…IF… Rachel leaves me in any condition to participate.

  157. JoAnna B permalink

    My guess is Ann Charles.  I hope I have gotten at least one right,

  158. Vicki Keire permalink

    Hey there Rachel! And pretend Rachel! I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a Happy Masquerade- this tour has been so much fun, and what better way to end it than with RacehlintheOC's fabulous blogliciousness? Free books, good luck, and happy reading to all!

  159. I'm going to take a chance and say that it's Vicki Keire posting.



  160. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    I hope you got more than one right JoAnna. You can find out on Monday.

  161. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Vickie, thanks for stopping by! and YES! The tour has been quite the experience. Can't wait for the next one.

  162. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Oh, Pamela…

    I'm not nearly clever enough to pretend to be a writer posting to the same blog I've taken over just to throw people off the scent… or am I? #CleverME

  163. Ugh…so hard to guess!!!!! Amber Scott??? Ugh!! Looking forward to this book!!!


  164. t_manfredi permalink

    I'm guessing Vicki Keire.

  165. Anonymous Cool Person permalink


    Hope you enjoy the book. Thanks for stopping by the blog tour.

  166. I have to take a chance and say Vicki Keire also~ lol  Have a great weekend everybody!!!!! SNARK ROCKS (and yes, I am going to the other site to put that also lol) 

  167. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks Vicki for posting and throwing people off the trail… that is… if I'm not actually Vicki… in which case, curses, my plan failed.

    Thanks for stopping by and guessing Christi and t_manfriedi

  168. I was thinking Vicki Keire, but then again, I am pretty sure I have not guessed even one right this whole tour.
    SNARK ROCKS and this has been way fun.

    dreamsgate @ centurylink dot net

  169. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Wow… Vicki seems to be the odds on favorite since she posted.

    Thanks for coming by Sandra. Even if you didn't guess right, you still get all those #free books.

    My guess is Lacey.

  171. Cardinoles permalink


    My guess for the mystery blogger is Jeremy Rodden. I hope I'm correct.
    I also think that Rachel was at Elena grays blog this week on Thursday.
    Would love to read both of the books!
    Laura G.

  172. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Interesting thoughts on both guesses.Books are on the way.

  173. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Hi Angela — We are missing your email address so Rachel can't send you the books :(( Hopefully you'll check back! 

  174. Snark rocks! This anthology sounds amazing!

  175. SNARK ROCKS! 😀 And snarky friends are fun. They always make me smile.

    I don't have a guess for the mystery blogger but I love their personality and would love to meet them. I look forward to reading some more great books.


    unionadvance4ever (at) gmail (dot) com

  176. Nikki permalink

    snark totally rocks!!  I think that this is Jeremy and I can't remember where I thought rachel was but its funny because she has been a  popular guess at a lot of blogs!!  LOL

  177. JulieCookies permalink

    I'm going to guess Lacey Weatherford but I really have no idea lol. 

  178. missyebookmail permalink

    Okay, I read all the blogs and I think I got at least a few of the “maskateers” figured out. Can I put 12 posts on each blog for each author to have my bases covered??? 😛 LOL 🙂 Crossing my fingers for the Kindle, so I can share it with my neice!

    I love the Blog Tour de Force!! This is the 4th I've participated in. I'm on a very limited income, so this is a great way to get some free books and I've discovered some great new authors I didn't know before!! Looking forward to discovering more authors through this Tour!

    Well – here goes: My “maskateer” guess is Vickie Keine
    I think Rachel is at Lacey Weatherford's site.
    Can't wait to read all these wonderful books!!

    missyebookmail [at] mediacombb [dot] net

  179. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for the nice words Haley. Once the reveal is done on Monday, come on over to my blog and say hello! Enjoy the books.

  180. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    I think people guess Rachel a lot, because so many bloggers are influenced by Rachel. Her easy flowing writing, tell-it-like-it-is style is touching the blogoshpere more and more every day.

  181. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for coming by Missy. Your in for quite a few treats (12, in fact) while you work your way through the gems all of us have offered those who have graced our blogs with their presence.

  182. I love horror stories. This anthology looks good!


  183. Divavixenqueen permalink

    ‘SNARK ROCKS’  my guess is Ann Charles

  184. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    J.C. This anthology will scare you silly.

  185. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    Thanks for stopping by. Find out on Monday.

  186. Calico Crazy permalink

    SNARK ROCKS!  I remember thinking that Rachel was on Amber's blog so I suppose it's only fitting that I think Amber is on Rachel's.  I wish I was better at games of guess.  I can't wait to read The Evil Within, I love being scared. ~


    Which is why I'm going with Ann Charles as NotRachel


  188. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    And scare you it will!

  189. Anonymous Cool Person permalink

    I think there is an equal amount of snarkage between those two.

  190. Very interesting books you have featured, particularly the horror anthology. I'll have to check them out. SNARK ROCKS!

  191. MJB permalink

    Hi! I thought I had made a comment last night, but I just took a look and I think I must have been more than half asleep and something didn't work! If you knew me you would know that I truly believe that SNARK ROCKS!
    Guessing the masqueraiders (sic), not my forte. But, I'm loving this blog event and am loving all the free books and meeting all the authors.
    Can't wait to get my hands on The Evil Within!
    msmjb65 AT gmail DOT com


    Im going to guess Maxwell.

    And my guess for today as to where Rachel was is Vicki's

    bacchus76 at myself dot com

  193. Anne permalink

    My guess is Maxwell. Snark Rocks!

    Thanks so much!

  194. Phaedra Seabolt permalink

    SNARK ROCKS! I am going to guess Augusto

  195. Sonya Faugno permalink

    SNARK ROCKS!  I'm guessing Augusto Pinaud.  Thanks for doing this.

    sidonie DOT wa AT netzero DOT net

  196. Suzette Lavine permalink

    I was guessing Rachel all week, so I don't know who else you could be, but I can't wait to read the Evil Within.  Snarking is awesome!

  197. Readingrat permalink

    SNARK ROCKS and I'll guess Amber Scott.
