Top 10 reasons Ty & Nora haven’t gotten together yet: Burdin of Choice Blog Tour

Hi guys, and welcome to my Burdin of Choice Tour stop.

If you follow what I read, then you probably already know I’m a fan of this series. I love Ty’s sarcasm, his relationship with Nora, the plot lines. If you haven’t already checked out this series, here’s what I’m talking about:

Ty Burdin is back. Back to drinking and back to avoiding demons. He is, of course, the leading expert in his field. In both subjects.

That’s probably why, when a customer offers him way too much money just to locate a missing car and some mysterious cargo, he readily agrees. The dude is human after all—Ty’s prime target client base.

Along with the money comes a slew of disappearances which Ty tries to ignore while tracking down that car, because, of course, those missing people might be demon related, and as he’s said before, that’s agency business. Not his. Period.

Until today.

Ty Burdin is to back drinking as well as everything he vowed never to get involved with again.

Question is, which one will kill him first? The booze, the demons, or the Agency?

You all can add it to your Goodreads by clicking on the coverart.

And if you fancy grabbing yourself a copy, you can do so via the below links:

AAAAAAAAANNNNDDDDDD if you need to get yourself up to speed and nab the first book in the series, Beasts of Burdin, too, then you’re in luck, because Beasts of Burdin is on promotion for only

But don’t leave yet!

Because not only do I have my (*insert smug grin*) requested Tens List from Mr Alexander Nader (I needed to know, dammit), but there’s also a great giveaway going on for the tour, which I’ll tell you about at the end.

For now, here’s the man himself:

Lady Belfield has asked me to stop by today and give you ten reasons why Ty and Nora haven’t gotten together yet. Geez, you would think she’s a romance writer or something. I don’t know what she’s doing, but I’m writing about a dude getting drunk and killing demons and there’s just no room for all that lovey dovey junk. One can’t be distract by girls when he’s forging himself in the ‘He man demon haters’ club. So, here are ten reasons, and I could come up with a dozen more if I needed to, but the last one is honestly my favorite.

 

  1. Lovey dovey scenes are icky
  2. Sex scenes are icky-er
  3. It would totally screw up their working relationship. How could Nora fictionalize stories with a fair mind when she’s sleeping with her subject?
  4. Ty is too busy drinking to worry about things as frivolous as relationships.Also, whiskey (scotch?) dick.
  5. It’s my job to put Ty through Hell. A single, lonely Hell.
  6. Nora is already dating someone. He is an inmate at Folsom prison and they exchange lovely emails twice a week.
  7. Just because two people work together and sleep under the same roof doesn’t mean they have to get all ‘in a relationship’. Geez, people, it’s the 21st century. Get with the times.
  8. Ty has written off all women after his last girlfriend turned out to be a cyborg AND a succubus. Yeah, that one didn’t end well.
  9. Ty is a eunuch. Happens to every male who joins the Agency to keep desire down when dealing with demons that appeal to a person’s baser instincts.
  10. It’s a lot of fun making JAB wait.

At least three of these are made up. I’m not telling you which three.

Check it out: cover reveal for Alexander Nader’s Burdin of Choice

Coming via J. Taylor November 10th 2014 is Alexander Nader’s Burdin of Choice, book 2 in the Burdin novels.

I read the first book last year, Beasts of Burdin, and really enjoyed Ty’s dry wit, the wide array of well-described demons, and world building Mr Nader has going on, so I’m very much looking forward to continuing on in the story. You guys want to add Ty Burdin’s tales of brew-goggled woe and reluctant heroics to your reading lists, for sure.

Oh, and you should totally go follow Mr Nader on Twitter, too, because he’s funny–but be preferred for sarcasm. And weirdness. Definitely weirdness. With lots of hair.

Blurb:

Hi, guys, I’m a tour stop for the Beasts of Burdin blog tour, and it gives me great pleasure to be so.

If you haven’t already, you should check out this cool book. I did, and was entertained for hours.

Demon hunter Ty Burdin hung up his guns, knife, trench coat and fedora a year ago. Bags packed, hands washed of all demon politics, he’s done. Forever.

In fact, to get far far away, he dragged Nora, his rockabilly secretary, from Miami to the Tennessee mountains where he’s lived a life of peace—if peace can be defined as drowning in scotch and taking private eye jobs to keep the lights on. Jobs for real people. Not demons.

No demons.

He’s retired from that. Remember?

Demon hunters aren’t a dime a dozen, though, and when Ty’s brother asks him for a favor—just one—what’s a brother to do? Agreeing to take down one hillbilly demon shouldn’t take that long. In. Decapitate. Out. Favor complete. Back to the office where Nora and his bottle of whiskey are waiting.

Unfortunately for Ty, staying retired doesn’t seem to be in the cards, and an avalanche of bad luck draws him right back to an agency he despises and the career that nearly cost him his sanity.

This time, Ty has no way out and will have to face his own demons just to survive.

Cool, right? And if you’re interested in my thoughts, you can see my review HERE!

But before you go, stick around for not only a guest post from Mr Alex himself, but also a very cool giveaway you’ll WANT to enter.

10 Things Ty Burdin Needs to Survive His Day

**Warning: Contains profanity**

What are ten things I need to get through my day? Phew, man, that’s a pretty tough question. I mean, I guess if really pushed I could only come up with one absolute necessity. I’d tell you, but it’s a pretty big secret. I guess you do have a pretty trustable face. If I told you the one thing that gets me through my day could you keep that between us? Promise?

Huh, okay, here goes, but if this leaves this room I’m gonna know where it came from. So just remember, this is a ‘your eyes only’ kind of deal here.

For me, Ty Burdin, demon-hunter, there is only one must have to get through my day. I can’t believe I’m sharing this. This is really hush-hush. I haven’t even told Nora about it. She’d just fictionalize it and put it in one of her stories anyway. Psht, writers. What’s with those guys? Gotta go and make a story out of everyone’s demons.

Right, where was I? Oh yeah, the one thing. This is it, now or never, but if you so much as crack a smile I will crack your smile. It’s my blanky. Yeah, a blanket I’ve had since I was a little lad. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Big, bad, demon-hunter-hard-ass doesn’t need a gun, or a sword, or a demon grenade, no, he needs a security blanket? Well, listen to this before you judge me, shithead.

When most toddlers are gumming fruit snacks, I was learning about demons. While most kids were having nightmares of the monster in the closest, my dad was teaching me how to kick the shit out of the monster in mine. Yeah, sounds pretty awesome, but do you know how scary it is to be that little and know of all the evil in the world? Instead of playing t-ball, I was learning the proper method for decapitating Azreal—a demon made up completely of eyeball and tongues. That really sticks with a kid.

So yeah, when I got tucked in at night, I pulled my blanket up close and tried to tell myself I was as big and tough as my dad. I did that every night of my life. Eventually, the blanket stuck and I’ve carried it with me ever since as a reminder that I can be as strong as my father was…

Nah, I’m just fucking with you. A bottle of scotch and a pack of smokes is all I need to handle just about anything.
