Honorary Blogger Rhys Ford: Killing Them Softly Tour + Giveaway!


Killing Them Softly Tour

by Rhys Ford

A funny thing happened on the way to the murder scene… I needed victims.

Now skip this part if you’ve heard it before but see, it’s hard to be a serial killer without victims. And if there’s one thing I do like writing, it is murder.

For the introduction of Rook and Dante in Murder and Mayhem, I wanted to do something different so I reached out to my fellow authors and ask; Can I murder you?

Everyone I reached out to said yes. Some were reluctant, some were enthusiastic but mostly there was a tingle of impending doom because really, nothing says I love you like a particularly well planned murder—especially if it’s yours.

The authors I’m killing off on this tour are some of my favourites. I could kill everyone I like. Sadly, I wouldn’t have enough time and I do have to move on to other murders, other books. But I’ve gathered a few… and best of all, like in some of the better mysteries in life, there is a plot twist.



Piper Vaughn — The Party Boy’s Guide to Dating a Geek
Piper is a fantastic author who I think delivers every damned timed she sits down and gives us a novel. She’s like a bite of orange peel in dark chocolate, a sweet spicy hit in a creamy silken darkness. And such a lovely person.


Charlie Cochet — 1-4 of the THIRDS series
Charlie is simply adorable. So adorably sweet and oh the power in her words. She can take your breath away and then give it back to you a moment later. If ever you have the chance, listen to her laugh. I’m pretty sure that’s the sound angels’ wings make when their feathers rub together.


About Murder and Mayhem

MurderandMayhemDead women tell no tales.

Former cat burglar Rook Stevens stole many a priceless thing in the past, but he’s never been accused of taking a life—until now. It was one thing to find a former associate inside Potter’s Field, his pop culture memorabilia shop, but quite another to stumble across her dead body.

Detective Dante Montoya thought he’d never see Rook Stevens again—not after his former partner falsified evidence to entrap the jewelry thief and Stevens walked off scot-free. So when he tackled a fleeing murder suspect, Dante was shocked to discover the blood-covered man was none other than the thief he’d fought to put in prison and who still makes his blood sing.

Rook is determined to shake loose the murder charge against him, even if it means putting distance between him and the rugged Cuban-Mexican detective who brought him down. If one dead con artist wasn’t bad enough, others soon follow, and as the bodies pile up around Rook’s feet, he’s forced to reach out to the last man he’d expect to believe in his innocence—and the only man who’s ever gotten under Rook’s skin.

  16. I love Rhys’ books and am enjoying the blog tour! The little character cartoons of the authors are adorable and the ways they’re being killed off so creative. I recently sat and read the whole Cole McGinnis series one after the other. I hated knowing that I was getting to the end of the last one, I wanted it to go on and on. I can’t wait to get a hold of this one.

  17. Poor Piper and Charlie. What unique ways to go.

    I want to read more from Piper 🙂

  45. What a terrible fate for poor Piper to be killed by one of her favourite creatures, was he was one of those from the Hedgehogs of Asgard perhaps? And even on her Pinterest site there are hundreds of images, including a warning about a guard hedgehog, but she did not listen! Then Charlie, are you sure it was not a book, as bog is Danish for a book?
