I’m incredibly excited and honoured to host an Author Q&A along with a brilliant giveaway for ROBIN HOOD’S DAWN by Olivia Longueville and J.C Plummer!

ROBIN HOOD’S DAWN is the first book in a trilogy, and centers on the English legend’s origins. An Earl forced into exile, Robin Hood gathers a band of men against the injustices of the Sheriff, and unravels a deep web of treachery and double-crossing threatening the nation. Set in ancient woodland, lavish royal courts and exotic shores of the Holy Land, this is a sight between good and evil, justice and tyranny, love and hate.

I have ONE COPY to give away! Thanks to the team at Smith Publicity one of you lucky guys could be in with a chance of winning it. I didn’t manage to read the whole thing as it came reeeally close to this giveaway going up but the first few pages, man… intrigue abound for a legend/historical fiction lover.

Fate of the Stars
Arwen Paris
Publication date: September 1st 2017
Genres: Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

When the fate of the world rests upon you…

Allison Delaney wants to spend her senior year healing from the loss of her father, to leave the shadows of his death and her junior year break-down behind. A Labor Day beach party seems like a good place to start…but there’s more danger lurking than anyone could imagine. Death is coming to Earth if the pods of infectious creatures aren’t stopped. But only one human can help…

To live or die is no longer a choice.

Eenoki is a protector of life but must have a sentient host to fight the invasion. A teenage girl would not be the best choice, but out of desperation Eenoki invades Allison’s mind and body, granting her unnatural abilities and strengths – and helping her escape certain death when the first wave of pods land.

As destruction rains down on Earth’s population, Allison realizes to save everyone, she must make the ultimate choice: Reject her human side and bond with Eenoki to become the Earth’s Priestess – or be killed along with the rest of humanity.

SPOTLIGHT on THE CASTAWAYS by Jessika Fleck

TheCastaways1600.jpg

THE CASTAWAYS is released TODAY! And I’m lucky enough to be part of the Blog Tour, with a special spotlight post and giveaway where you can win some cool swag (or an Amazon gift card, if you’re international ie: not the US of A)

The Castaway Carnival: fun, mysterious, dangerous. Renowned for its infamous corn maze…and the kids who go missing in it.

When Olive runs into the maze, she wakes up on an isolated and undetectable island where a decades-long war between two factions of rival teens is in full swing. Trapped, Olive must slowly attempt to win each of her new comrades’ hearts as Will—their mysterious, stoically quiet, and handsome leader—steals hers.

Olive is only sure about one thing: her troop consists of the good guys, and she’ll do whatever it takes to help them win the war and get back home. But victory may require more betrayal, sacrifice, and heartbreak than she’s ready for.

I already received an e-ARC of this via NetGalley, which I’m super stoked to read. The review will be up very shortly.

In the mean time, we have an excerpt of the book to whet your appetite!

But everything’s clear. I do know where to go. “I’m going to find that boulder—” I suck in shallow breath. “The…hhh…maze.”
“It’s no use. We’ve tried everything. It doesn’t work! Wait!”
But I’m not listening because it has to work. It’s the only way. If it got me in, it’ll get me back out.
I run until my body, my mind, and, mostly, my lungs give up. Because, problem is, Will’s right. I don’t know how to find it.
I stop.
Will stops.
Bent at the waist, hands on my knees, I cough and spew, trying to catch my breath. The hyperventilation has passed, but my insistence on sprinting like I’m a track star when my lungs and legs have no business running, has taken its toll.
I look up.
Will isn’t fazed. At some point he took off his shirt and now stands with his hands on his hips, chest rising and falling, barely winded. His abs flex with each effortless breath. “Get it out of your system?”
It’s when my stomach springs that I realize I’m staring at his body. I quickly glance away and completely ignore his question. “Take me there.”
“I told you. It’s no use.”
“Please,” I whimper. Tears race down my face.
Tucking his T-shirt into the back of his pants, Will walks in another direction.
“Where are you going?”
“I’m taking you. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
With Will now leading the way, I watch his suntanned back, the sweat beading at his shoulders and slowly, one by one, how the beads roll down the center crease. I’m in a daze or a haze or a trance because all I see is his back, his muscles contracting and tightening with each step, and, like magic, we’re there.
The mossy boulder stands before us and, I swear, it mocks me in all its ordinary, commonplace glory.

….so I may already have a thing for Will, FYI.
