[Blitz Blog Tour+Giveaway] The Leak of Madness by Alice J. Black: Weird Intros, Excessive Fangirling, and a New Paranormal Horror Book to Keep You Awake During the Night

Hello, lovely book-lovers! Or, if you just happened to stumble on my blog while searching up on how one can catch the cutest cat in the world while still having time to take over the world and eat a bunch of McDonald's french fries, then (a) you have come to the right place, (b) what an oddly specific search question to ask Google, Bing, Yahoo, or any other search engine, and (c) hello, rest your feet, and become part of the family by subscribing to my blog.


Anyway, somehow, this post became an advertisement not for The Leak of Madness, which just came out today *fangirling so hard* and sounds amazing, but for french fries, cats, world denomination (my favorite hobby), and my blog, which you should follow.

Have you followed yet?

Okay, getting away from that mess of writing, Alice J. Black's The Leak of Madness is out today!

I am so excited to share with each and every one of you readers a small summary to get you excited for this book, a special excerpt to get your feet tingling, and an awesome giveaway to get you bursting with excitement! I hope you're ready, because I know I am!

Thank you Rockstar Book Tours for the chance to take part in this celebratory day of the release of The Leak of Madness.

The Leak of Madness by Alice J. Black

The spirit world has been in touch with Peyton, and it’s more than she can tolerate. Sometimes their messages are loud enough even to pierce beyond the veil of her alcohol-induced stupors.
When she is invited to attend her best friend's brother’s wedding at The Manor House, Peyton is compelled to stare down memories of her life before it was decimated by fire and tragedy. Continuously topping herself up with alcohol to keep the voices at bay, it becomes clearer and clearer that there are forces at work in the old building…shadows darker than Peyton could have ever imagined.
The Leak of Madness is the beginning of a thrilling, fast-paced series of horror novellas overflowing with intrigue, romance, redemption, and most importantly…ghosts.
Will Peyton find the normal life she could have if only she stops drinking or will the forces of evil drive her mad?

Book Trailer:

Exclusive Excerpt:
“What would the lady like?” he asked as he stood behind the bar, waving at the bottles in their optics.
Little did he know how much each of those bottles appealed. Like a kid choosing candy in a store, I was transported back to my first drink, stolen from my dad's cabinet. That one had been whiskey. Back then, I took whatever I could get. Now I was old enough—and I might argue wise enough—to choose my own poison.
“Do you know,” I started as I leaned over the bar, looking between the man and the bottles. He really was a good-looking guy. “That you’re giving me reason to give in to temptation.”
His smile widened. “Hey, if I didn't ply you with alcohol, what sort of bar man would I be?”
I grinned as he continued to watch me. This guy still wore the label of lad, and he was cute, but I had a couple of years on him. Still, age wasn’t everything. “See the thing is,” I started again. “My friend doesn't like it when I drink.”
“And is your friend your keeper?” He raised his brow.
“No, but see, that's my point. This has to be a secret.”
“Secret.” He leaned in conspiratorially and I couldn’t help but inhale the deep scent of his aftershave. “I like secrets.”

About Alice:

I’m an author in the North East of England where I live with my partner and overly-ferocious cat. I have been writing for as long as I can remember mostly in the dark genres but recently, I have expanded into other genres (such as young adult). My cupboard is stocked with an array of different and funky notebooks (because you can never have too many). My inspiration tends to come from a lot of different places but my first novel and a lot of my ideas come from my rather vivid dreams (which my partner tells me I tell him about as I’m still dreaming!)

Giveaway Details:
10 winners will receive an eBook of THE LEAK OF MADNESS, International.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Ends on February 13th at Midnight EST!

Good luck!

Thank you for those of you who came to read my post for this blog tour. I hope you have a fantastic day.😀


Are there any books releasing in February you are excited for? How did you find my blog? Is there any quality from The Leak of Madness that makes you the tiniest bit interested in reading this story? What was the latest thing you have fangirled about, other than The Leak of Madness? Correspond with me in the comments below or on any of my social medias.



  1. This cover is really gorgeous in a creepy way. It sounds quite interesting too

    1. Yes, you have voiced my thoughts about the dangerously delicious cover. It is kind of like a death by chocolate cake, which just happens to be my favorite cake as well. Anyway, I am so glad to read that this has interested you as informing others about books has been my goal from the very start. I hope you enjoy it once you get to read it. :)

  2. Nicoooleee!!!! I missed you... how are you??
    ANyway, as for the book, this one seems interesting and I'll definitely look for it... Thanks to your great review. :) :)

    1. OMG! Lili! Thank you for commenting! Oh, it is so great to hear from you other than from your blog, which you are doing so well on!😍(That reminds me that I need to read your last few posts!😁) I am doing fine but a little stressed out due to my computer not working and my journey of being a cat being the hardest thing in the world. GAH!

      On another note, this book definitely does seem intriguing. Like a vanilla cake inside a chocolate cake. I would love to hear your thoughts on this book if you read it! Also, how are you? Have a great day and night!

    2. i missed instagram though...But I had to stop there for a while as my psychologist suggested.. You knew i'm suffering from depression right? anyway, Im feeling so much better and better...
      Lol, goodluck being a cat, that's really hard.. ahhaha..
      And hope your computer get well soon. :)

      I'm already looking into this book... And what a description you have of it... A vanilla cake inside a chocolate cake? only you can give that description.. hahaha,.. its amazing.

      Also, Im fine,.. And you too have great day or night.. I somehow hate our time differences. :)

  3. Lili, I am so glad that you are doing great! Instagram can get to my head, too, so I think it is good to step away from things that give you stress. Just as long as you are enjoying something, do it!

    Also, haha! Thanks for sending some luck my way! Being a book-reading cat while everyone thinks I am a human is hard. :P Also, my computer Dumbledore(as I name my computers) is gone. 😭 I couldn't get it to run so I am responding to your comment on my new computer. I am thinking of naming this new addition to my family Jace from The Mortal Instruments because it is an Acer. I saw that you have read some of the Shadowhunter Chronicles on Goodreads so I think you will get it.

    Also, that cake-inspired description that I created came to me in a second. I just knew that I needed some good food to cheer everyone up! I am really sad due to our time differences, too. I wish I could have responded to this comment earlier; however, I was asleep, which barely ever happens that early. It was barely 8pm!

    Well, have a good day and night! I am so glad I got to talk to you again! :)
