Author Interview- Apryl Baker(blog tour)

Today we have the Author of the YA book, The Promise, Apryl Baker here with us for an interview. Thank you so much for joining us Apryl. I was really excited about your cast- I love Emma Roberts! She would be an awesome CJ! 🙂1: Can you tell us what The Promise is about in a single sentence? Armed with kick-ass shoes, can CJ stop a maniacal coven leader, save the town, and still get Mr. Melt In Your Mouth Gorgeous while surviving the darkness coming for her? 2: Can you tell us a bit more about The Promise and how it came about? I call The Promise my Post-It Note idea. I was driving home from work and listening to Theory of A Dead Man’s Not Meant to Be. I passed this little community called New Salem and the image of a girl sitting beside a gravestone popped into my head. I couldn’t shake it so when I got home, I jotted it down on a yellow sticky and… Read more »

Excerpt: The Birth of Jaiden (blog tour)

Excerpt: The Birth of Jaiden (blog tour)

Here is an excerpt from The Birth of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright He thought the room he was in looked like an underground cave. The damp stone walls had foreigncarvings etched into them. There were no bars anywhere, the only things which kept him captive were the chains attached to his cuffs and the guards.I have to find a way out, he told himself, then thought about the puddle of his own blood in which he sat. There was no way he could move with the amount of blood he had lost. He knew his only chance would be for the council to find him. He was sure he would bleed to death if he stayed cuffedin the cold much longer. A few moments later, he heard a commotion in the stairwell leading to his prison. Then, a tall woman emerged onto the landing. She had short black hair and wore very large dangling diamond earrings. Her maroon evening gown shimmered like it was covered in the same diamonds whichhung from her ears.She locked gazes with Stewart. He stared deep into… Read more »

A child would be born, a child who held the power to destroy the world. Now, it is up to Alexander Lucas, a one-hundred-year-old vampire, to keep the baby girl safe from his arch enemy Malcolm.

Guest Post- Author Jocelyn Davies (blog tour)

Thank you so much to Jocelyn Davies, Author of A beautiful Dark for joining us at Book Briefs today. I loved this book so much and the review will be up soon! 🙂 Setting the Scene for A BEAUTIFUL DARK “When a book is set in the right place, that place almost becomes a character itself. In high school, I spent a summer backpacking around Colorado, and I fell in love with it. We’d hike through these long, dense mountain trails, and then find ourselves in a huge alpine field with lots of little purple flowers. Then, a few feet higher up, the ground would be covered in snow and ice. It was pretty magical! When I was conceptualizing A BeautifulDark, it felt right to set it in Colorado. The natural world factors prominently into the mythology of the series, and I loved the idea of all of this celestial drama playing out against this majestic background. I could just picture the huge white and black wings soaring above the… Read more »

Interview and Giveaway with Author Lynne Tolles(blog tour)

Interview and Giveaway with Author Lynne Tolles(blog tour)

Today we are joined by Lynne Tolles, the author of the Blood Series.  1. In Twitter detail (140 characters or less) describe why people should read Bloodstone Heart. (feel free to elaborate more after your “tweet”) Tweet – BsH is an interesting story that digs up vampiric history and brings new blood to the story while putting Rowan and Blake in leadership roles. Wow…that was hard. Must have tried eight times to get it right. To elaborate, in the previous books Darby and Devon have been the main characters, taking leadership roles in whatever craziness occurs, but in Bloodstone Heart we move a couple months back in time giving the reader some intimate time getting to know Josh and Lanie and their plight.  About half way through the book you catch up with the end of Blood Lust and then the gang works together as a whole. It was fun to put Rowan and Blake in a new role and gives them something to do while feeling guilty about giving up on… Read more »
