I’m so excited to be part of the blog tour for Jeff Strand’s A Bad Day for Voodoo!
Glad we covered that. Now, I want you to imagine you very worst day ever. Okay, now I’m going to need you to imagine that bad day getting worst by say, ohhh, x1000. That’s what A Bad Day for Voodoo is like; it is that level of bad day.
It is humorous horror, if such a genre exists. There is a frantic pace to the plot and to the dialogue/writing. Both the pace and the story pretty much define action/adventure. Adam is perhaps actually dumber than a rock, while pragmatic and practical Kelley is a good counterbalance for him. Tyler meets them somewhere in the middle and has perhaps the most outrageous impulses I’ve ever read. When I think about the plot the only phrase I can come up with is “a ridiculous riot.” We’re talking voodoo dolls, zombies, crazy cabbies, gangsters, shootouts, guarddogs, and so much more. Frankly the book is worth the read just for the FAQ section which had me laughing out loud. I didn’t mind the “Intermission” either. If you’re okay putting reality aside for a little while, if you’re in it to laugh and to be caught up in the fun, then A Bad Day for Voodoo is a perfect read for you.

Synopsis: Tyler was majorly mad when his teacher gave him an F on his final. But he didn’t really believe one quick poke on a voodoo doll would make Mr. Chick’s leg explode.

And then his car is hijacked…with the dolls inside. With a group of deadly car thieves, a suspicious cop, parents who demand that they come home “right this minute” and countless other obstacles, they’ll need to work fast to avoid the same gruesome fate as their teacher!There are some days you just want to crawl into bed and forget the rest of the world. For Tyler, that day was today.
