Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet: In The Bones by Renee Miller

Date Published: March 2013

Welcome to Albertsville: Population 400…and falling.

When Ryan Cassidy claims a house left to him by his estranged grandparents, he becomes tangled in the mystery of a town crushed by a deadly secret spanning generations.

The town's power core, which includes the reeve, his council members, and the local police, smother opposition with deceit, brutality and fear. They will stop at nothing to keep the horror they've committed buried. 

A severe winter storm leaves Albertsville snowbound—a trap only the dead can hope to flee—and Ryan becomes a liability that must be silenced at any cost.

The answers to the town’s mystery and its salvation are hidden...In the Bones.

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Definitely. My “day job” is writing articles for a wide range of clients online, so I have made writing my career. The long term goal is to write fiction only, but I suspect it will be very long term.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Learning to focus on one thing at a time. I tend to get distracted easily and I work at home, so between kids, dogs and the wonders of social media, it’s easy to forget what it is I’m supposed to be doing. Now and then I read through a rough draft and find sections where I’m not really sure what I was thinking.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

I have many people outside of my family who’ve been immensely helpful. For a long time I was part of a group on Goodreads that focused on writing fiction and publishing. These people became like family for me, and are still a huge source of support, advice and encouragement.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I have several novels completed, so I plan to publish at least two more by this time next year. The Legend of Jackson Murphy, which is more of a caper type of story and full of dark humor, is scheduled for release this summer, and after that I’m not sure but I’ll have to make a decision soon.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I have a huge reading addiction. My love of writing grew from my love of a great story. I read everything, regardless of genre. Right now I’m in between books, but George R.R. Martin’s “A Dance with Dragons” is next on my shelf.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet:

Secrets and fear bind a town to one dangerous and cunning man. Ryan Cassidy can help them break free…if he survives the winter.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?

Neither? I keep playlists (iTunes and Mp3) on my computer, but I usually just turn on the radio when I’m writing.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?

Definitely chocolate.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?

Poutine. (Which would be French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy, and sometimes bacon.)

#4 – Comedy or Drama?


#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?

Oy…is there a third option?

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?


#7 – Call or Text?

Text, but I can’t force my fingers to type anything but the whole word. It takes me forever to text a single message.

#8 – Public School or Home School?

Public school and my kids are relieved about that.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate


#10 – eBook or Paperback?

As long as I can read it, I’m happy.

Renee Miller is a freelance writer living in Tweed, Ontario. Small town life is busy, but she’s managed to sandwich a book or two between the demands of housewifery and hiding from the neighbors.
Bitten by the writing bug at the tender age of nine or ten (she can't recall those years as clearly anymore) Renee has forever had a story building in her head. It wasn't until 2009 that she considered turning her passion into a serious endeavor. She has several completed novels she prefers to call "almost published" and many more awaiting their chance to be polished enough for public consumption. 
Last year she co-founded On Fiction Writing, a website for writers, created by writers. IN THE BONES is her first published novel.
