Welcome to Day 3 of the Where Angels Can’t Follow blog tour with YA Bound Book Tours. (For my poetry people, that means 2 more days until we’re back to verses and agony in ink. I’ve written about 7 this week so far, so I’m ready.)
Y’all. Where Angels Can’t Follow will be released tomorrow! This has been a long journey for me. And every time I look over the lines, I am excited to share them with you. I can’t wait for you to meet these hilarious characters who walked into my mind and wouldn’t quit telling their stories.
We’re on our second week of the blog tour, and the lineup was arranged with YA Bound Book Tours. I’m really excited about the new content released in some of today’s posts. Here are today’s stops:
And at all of these stops you can register for a giveaway of my complete works–Iron Shards, Hell and High Water, and Where Angels Can’t Follow. (The copies of Where Angels Can’t Follow are ARCs as it hasn’t been released yet.)
Good morning! We’re wrappingup the first week of the Where Angels Can’t Follow blog tour. (There’s one more week of blog stops to go, for those of you wondering when I would get back to poetry, writing blogs, and finishing Iron Spirits.) I can’t believe we’re only four days away from the release! I am excited to share the world, the characters, and their hilarity. One of my writing idols, Joss Whedon, once offered this advice for writing, “Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke.” And that was my goal.
Today’s stop on the blog tour is Jazzy Book Reviews. You can find an excerpt of Where Angels Can’t Follow here, if you haven’t gotten to it yet. (At least your wait for the rest won’t be long now!) It’s also one of your last opportunities to enter the Iron Shards giveaway.
I have been featured in a guest post on Jaime’s World today. I wrote a piece on my Top 5 Favorite Movies. I don’t really watch movies much since my attack, and the exceptions usually involve my children. However, 2020 has not been the year for movie releases, so these should still be relevant. Also, my friends swear I am completely uncultured despite their best efforts. *shrugs* You’ve been warned. There’s not much overlap between what I want to watch and the Oscars winners list. Netflix also thinks I want to watch strong females in leading roles. (Make of those two facts what you will.) I hope you find something new and interesting to occupy your social distancing hours.
Thank you for sticking with me on this blog tour. I hope you find some new YA reader blogs that recommend new favorites. There are two new stops today. The first is at Oh Hey! Books. I did a guest post for them on the Where Angels Can’t Follow playlist. I included songs I simply couldn’t have written the book without, songs that reminded me of New Orleans, and tunes that belonged with certain characters. I hope you find your new song obsession in the mix.
The second stop is at The Book Rookery. They’ve featured Where Angels Can’t Follow and posted the first chapter if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet. You can do so at the link below. (My linking is clumsier than usual. I’m sorry guys. WordPress switched over to a block format that isn’t giving me as many options as I had before.)
I did a guest post for TMBA Corbett on my Top 5 Favorite Books. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to narrow that discussion down to only five books, but it was agonizing for me. You can take a look here.
Where Angels Can’t Follow was also featured at Books A-Brewin’. You can check out that page for new YA reading and to see Chapter 1 of Where Angels Can’t Follow if you haven’t gotten to it yet. You can find it here.
And there’s an opportunity to register for the giveaway of Iron Shards at every stop on the tour.
