The Yellow Envelope…by Kim Dinan Blog Tour

  I am excited to be part of the ‘Yellow Envelope’ blog tour. It is a fun non-fiction book by Kim Dinan. She and her husband sold everything they owned and decided to tour the world. Right before they left their friends gave them a yellow envelope full of money. The rules were: don’t overthink it; share your experiences; don’t feel pressured to give it all away. I can’t wait to read it. For now here is my Q & A with Kim. Check back in the next couple of weeks for my review.   1. If you could live anyplace other than where you currently live, where would it be? Good question! It would have to be someplace beautiful, remote and in the mountains, maybe some tiny Swiss village in the Alps. I don’t know which one. I’ll have to go do some on-the-ground research!   2. What is the single most important piece of advice would you give to someone who wants to downsize and travel? Do something every single day that leads you in the direction of your goal. It took me three years to downsize and save money so that I could travel. Some days the only thing […]

Nickel…by Rober Wilder-Book Blitz

  Nickel by Robert Wilder Genre: YA Contemporary Release Date: September 13th 2016 Leaf Storm Press A STORY OF LOVE, LOSS AND LOYALTY. Being a teenager is hard enough without your mother in rehab and your slightly inept stepfather doing his best not to screw things up. But at least, Coy has Monroe. Coy is a quirky teenage boy and his best friend Monroe is a girl who is just as odd and funny and obsessed with 80’s culture as he is. So when Monroe comes down with a mysterious illness, his inner turmoil only grows. As Monroe gets sicker and Coy gets a girlfriend from another social crowd, the balance tips and Coy has to figure out how not to give up on his friend, his family, or himself. Nickel is a hilarious, heartbreaking and honest portrayal of the complicated world of being a teenager today. “No one has ever written about the pains of being a teenager–physically and psychologically, inside and out–quite like Robert Wilder in his startling debut novel. He has created indelible characters in Monroe and Coy–funny and sad and strong and broken–and NICKEL is about as real as it gets. –AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS, New York Times […]

Emma G. Loves Boyz…by Taro Meyer-Book Blast

Excerpt: OMG!!! My heart was racing like it was going crazy. Lights began flashing from everyone’s phones and people were Instagramming pictures of the band to their friends and posting them. I tried to take pictures but my hands were shaking so much from excitement that the pictures were blurry. Jenny wasn’t taking any either because she was shaking too. Everyone was screaming and yelling and crying. Two girls fainted and were carried out to get some water. I was screaming too. I took a selfie of me screaming and then one of Jenny screaming. Her mouth was open so wide I think I was taking a picture of her tonsils!!! I could see all the Boyz3000 faces very clearly because we were so close up, but especially Aaron’s. I was watching him and trying to take his picture while I was screaming, but my hands were still shaking too much to get good shots, so I stopped trying and just watched him. His expressions were sooo sincere as he sang. His cute hair was falling over his eyes and those eyes were sooo adorable. And his collar was open on his shirt, and I could even see the sweat […]

Eden’s Escape…by M.Tara Crowl-Book Blitz

I am super excited to take part in the release tour of’ ‘Eden’s Escape’,a middle-grade novel, from Disney-Hyperion. Eden’s escape is the second book in the ‘Eden of the Lamp’ series. Stop back by on September 26 to see my full review. Eden’s new life on earth begins in New York City under the guidance of her new guardian: Pepper, a petite, bubbly genie alum who’s also a Broadway actress. Before she has a chance to settle in, though, Eden is whisked away for a granting–only to find herself trapped in a laboratory. David Brightly, owner of the world’s leading tech company, cares more about tapping into the lamp’s power than making a wish and starts performing tests on Eden. With Brightly’s plasma shield around the lamp, Eden has no way home. Left without a choice, she escapes the lab and goes on the run. After her daring exit, Eden finds herself on the streets of Paris–home to Electra’s headquarters. Left in a strange city with a price on her head (courtesy of scheming Brightly), Eden has to keep her wits about her. She dons a chic disguise and flits around Paris incognito, investigating Brightly Tech. Assisted by Pepper and her […]
