Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway: Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton

Character Profile:  Maggie


Name: Maggie Stone

Physical Traits: “Maggie,” I say, stopping. I instantly take note of the veins beneath her translucent skin, the trembling, the smudges under her eyes. Her ink-black wig shines weakly in the sun. “Maggie, you shouldn’t be here.”

Quote from SQP: Maggie swallows. “I was thinking … you know I joke about death”—the word makes her cringe—“and I brush it off. Hell, I dress like it.” She sniffs, attempts to harden, but it doesn’t work. Not now. Shuddering, she meets my gaze squarely. She’s decided something. “We’re all pretending, all the time. But now it’s different. I feel different. I think I need to face the fact that I’m going to die, and I need to hear someone say it.”

  1. The story involves Umberto Scalli (the great Timothy Farrell, THE DEVIL'S SLEEP, DANCE HALL RACKET) running a replica watches uk women's wrestling gym and league. Umberto turns out to be your average piece of dog slime replica rolex; a pimp, a con artist and a lady beater, just to get started. He hires Peaches Page to be his new wrestling find, most likely due to her huge chest and small IQ. Umberto's lovable friend Joe the Jockey (one hit wonder Don Ferrera) can't help but look at Peaches' chest and neither can the audience as those boobs continuously bob as she runs, throws the weight ball, uses the rowing machine, wrestles, and, my favorite, jumps rope. It really doesn't matter that she disappears by the second reel since she said all she had to say. So Umberto's a slime, he tries to get Ms. Mortensen and Ms. Martinez to throw the fight, but neither will, and in the end Umberto dies. Of course there's other stuff, by why should I try to make sense out of this?
