Affix
Affix | Lee Gaiteri
19 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Matt Kellogg has a few problems standing in the way of his long weekend. His ex-girlfriend is still stalking him. His best friend's ex needs a place to stay after a break-in. And he's stuck with a strange gem that glows in the dark, bends the laws of probability into taffy, and cannot be thrown away. The jewel, known to paranormal folklore only as the Affix, has adopted Matt as its new keeper and in the process put his friends in danger. Protecting them means contending with a ghost-chasing website curator, hard-bargaining crows, and a motley bunch of ruthless collectors and freelancers who each want to acquire the stone for their own ends. Chaos ensues. Even worse, order ensues. Now that the Affix is awake, increasingly wild coincidences drag friends and relentless foes alike into a deadly spiral with no escape. For Matt, keeping his sanity intact in a world of crackpots is already off the table. The only way to save his friends, and himself, may be to out-crazy them all.

I'm ready for NaNoWriMo--are you?

By "ready" I mean I know bits and pieces of the story I want to tell but absolutely nothing coherent. Book 3 of the Paranormal Curio series starts late Halloween night, and it's called The Pembroke Engine.

julesG Just the way I feel. I haven't signed up for NaNoWriMo, I fear I'd chicken out. 13mo
LummoxJR @julesG It's a really rewarding experience if you make yourself sit down and write. I got two books out of it that I'm really proud of. After 2011 I skipped the next 5 years because I was worried I couldn't do it again, but last year worked out really well. 13mo
julesG I've done it before, but also skipped a few years for different reasons. I'm going to visit the website today and try to have the courage to sign up. 😉 13mo

Reposting this awesome news for @LummoxJR (also known as my favorite brother 😉) These are such fun books! They are both a wild ride with paranormal phenomenon at their core. Lots of humor sprinkled in to keep things from being too heavy, but with fast moving plots and lots of bad guys to keep you on your toes! The Affix is FREE for Kindle for the next few days, so help spread the word and check it out! 😆

Sequel news: I have full notes back from one of my beta readers and I've been working to act on those, plus looking high and low for typos the betas missed (there were some). Still trying to reword one awkward sentence without losing the joke, and replace a joke that didn't land. But I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on the release!

Thanks @kylienoele for the tag! 😘

1. Kung Fu Fighting... I don‘t know why. 🤷🏻‍♀️
2. I can‘t, it‘s a beta read but it‘s the sequel to the tagged book and so far I love it! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
3. I honestly have no idea. I‘ve read a lot of big books in my life.
4. I‘m tagging @That-Bookish-Hiker 😊

This was fun! @GarthRanzz

GarthRanzz Thanks for playing Kat! And I think “everybody was Kung-fu fighting!” will be the last ear-worm I‘m infected with today. 😊 2y
GypsyKat @GarthRanzz Haha! You‘re welcome! 2y
BiblioLitten I'm 'Kung-fu fighting' too. Even the background music! 😛🎶 2y

I really enjoyed re-reading this book! It had been a few years and I wanted to refresh my memory of the characters before bata reading the sequel. It‘s a fun, fast paced adventure (or series of misadventures, really) with a full cast of interesting characters, humor, sarcasm, and a supernatural disregard for the laws of probability. Good stuff!

Now to bata read the sequel, The Well Of Moments.

1. Celebrating my moms birthday on Saturday, and hopefully relaxing on Sunday.🎂

2. 5‘ 4” (too tall for “short” options, but regular pants are always a tiny bit long on me)🤷🏻‍♀️

3. I‘ve lived in this house for two years and two months, but I‘ve lived on this same street for almost 18 years.🏡

4. Tagged book. It‘s my brothers second book and its a re-read for me. When I‘m done I‘m going to beta read the sequel. 🙃

5. From Tuesday. 💋

Ke633 Same height.. same size problem.. too tall for the short.. to short for the regular. 🙄🙄 2y
GypsyKat @Ke633 Sucks, right? I know I should just get things tailored, but I usually can‘t be bothered. I‘m definitely liking this ankle length trend, and I often roll up my jeans anyway. But still. 🙄 2y

That-Bookish-Hiker I have that same problem with pants. So annoying. 2y

Jess7 Same with pants and I‘m 5‘5”. Regular tends to work ok most of the time. Tall are usually wayyyyy too long! 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Happy Birthday Mom!!!!! 🎊🎈🎉 2y
GypsyKat @That-Bookish-Hiker @Ash.on.the.line I feel like we should start a rebellion of some kind. 💪 2y
Zelma Same height here too. And same annoying problem with pants. I typically just buy short or petite pants when I can and just embrace the high wader look. 2y
GypsyKat @Zelma It never used to be as much of a problem for me because I wore heals with everything. Seriously. Even jeans. But I have some feet issues now, and I pretty much just do flats all the time. 2y
Zelma @GypsyKat I never wear heels either. I just accept that either my socks will show or my pants drag on the ground, as I don‘t get them hemmed. I need to learn how to sew and just hem my own clothes. 2y
tpixie @GypsyKat yes!! I buy the ankle length too! And Who wants to spend the time and money getting clothes altered? (edited) 2y

Eating the last piece of Valentine‘s Day cake while I‘m re-reading The Affix. Once I finish it I‘ll start on the bata read for the sequel, The Well Of Moments. I almost forgot how funny this book was! I remembered the fast pace and adventure, but I forgot how much it made me laugh!

While the sequel is in the hands of beta readers, here's the cover for the new book! Check out my blog "When I Become a Supervillain" for the full blurb, news and updates, and also recipes and rants. I'm planning to do a free promo for The Affix when the sequel launches.

GypsyKat Can you link your blog here? You should also think about maybe putting a link to it at the top of your page here. 👍 (edited) 2y
LummoxJR How exactly do I put a link at the top of my page? 2y
GypsyKat @LummoxJR If you‘re on your home page (where it shows only your posts and your Litfluence and stuff) in the top right hand corner, there‘s a settings icon. Click that and you can update your personal information. Underneath where your name is, there‘s room for a short bio. 2y

I always bata read my brother‘s books for him. This one is a sequel to The Affix. I told him that I do want to reread The Affix first, since it‘s been a few years. But it‘s always exciting for me to read something new of his! 😊❤️

He‘s on here btw, although not much even though I pester him about it. 😉 @LummoxJR

I finally did NaNoWriMo again this year, so now the sequel to The Affix, called The Well of Moments, is going through editing and beta. The sequel is set three years later and puts Jasmine Treager in the driver's seat as the main character. Several familiar faces and names return, and some familiar artifacts too.

GypsyKat Dude, I‘m the only person you‘re following? You‘re killing me! But at least you finally posted something! 😜 I‘m going to recommend a couple people for you to follow: @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @LitsyHappenings @MrBook and all the people who are following you already. Plus Chris is on here @TheWhiteHatter Litsy is really great! I know you‘re not big on social media but get involved! We‘re all pretty awesome here! 🙃 2y

For today's prompt of #ZombieOutbreak for #Hallowreads I knew I had the perfect book! One Woke up, by my brother, Lee Gaiteri. This is his first book, it's a different kind of sci-fi take on zombies. Unfortunately I couldn't find it on Litsy, so I tagged his second book instead. 💀 @Tiffy_Reads @JoeStalksBeck

MaleficentBookDragon ❤️ that cover. 2y
WarpedSweetness I agree with @MaleficentBookDragon . That's a great cover. I wish it was listed on Litsy so I can add it to TBR list. 2y
GypsyKat @MaleficentBookDragon @WarpedSweetness That makes me happy that you guys like it so much! Since it was his first book, he actually did the cover himself. He's always second guessed it as not being good enough. I'll tell him what you both said, I'm sure he'll appreciate it. 😊💗💗 2y

GypsyKat @WarpedSweetness Are you on Goodreads? Because it is listed there. 2y
WarpedSweetness @GypsyKat I think the cover is great! Definitely tell him so. I am on Goodreads. I wrote down the name of the book in my notebook so I can check there and then Google it to see who has it. 2y
GypsyKat @WarpedSweetness Thanks again! I know it's available on Amazon in both paper back and for Kindle. I don't know if any libraries would have it. 2y
WarpedSweetness @GypsyKat Good to know! Amazon and B&N are usually my first stops to see if the ebook is cheaper. My library is small. I live in a rural area so it doesn't have a lot. 2y
