Spotlight: Author Ja-Mel Vinson on his debut novel, Dreamer

Hello, Ja-Mel! Thank you very much for agreeing to have an interview with me! I am very, very excited to have you here today. As a debut author, I’m sure that a lot of people are curious about your work, your journey as a writer, and of course, you as a person outside of writing. Let’s kick this off with a few questions about yourself, yes?

What are three fast facts about yourself that most of your readers might not know yet?

I’m hard-of-hearing (mild-to-moderate in my left, and moderate-to-profound in my right) and didn’t get my first hearing aid till 6.

FOLLOW ALONG: Dreamer Blog Tour (ft. schedule & giveaway)

Hello and good morning from this wonderful side of the world! I am oddly chirpy today partly because I had a successful book haul in the ongoing NBS sale yesterday — but mostly because today marks the start of the blog tour for Dreamer by Ja-Mel Vinson!

I’ve been dropping hints about this blog tour for weeks and more recently, I mentioned how excited I was because, well, how could I not be? This is also the first blog tour I’m organizing under my humble little business venture, Caffeine Book Tours!

Unveiling the cover for The Dragon Warrior by Katie Zhao (aka the ‘Try Not to Drool’ challenge)

Just the other day, I hinted at the upcoming cover reveal that would take place on my little blog — definitely a book written by an Asian author, definitely Asian-inspired, and most definitely one of my most highly anticipated debut novels for this year.

In my previous blog post, I did not drop the book’s title (which was unbelievably difficult and painful because I was extremely excited to share the news!) This time, however, I am relieved and ecstatic to finally announce that I am introducing the book cover of Katie Zhao’s incredible MG debut, The Dragon Warrior, to the rest of the world!

Blog Birthday & Giveaway: 3 debunked book blogging myths from a 3-year blogger

Hello there, wonderful readers!

After a blogging hiatus that started way, way back in October, I am very ecstatic to announce that ya girl has finally resurrected and is ready to get back into the blogging game! Well, sort of.

Initially, my semester was set to end on the 18th of December, which would have been ideal since it’s a day after my blog’s birthday. I scheduled my glorious return to the world of books and blogging accordingly. But alas! (Please tell me you read “alas” with an accent.) The universe wanted to mess up with my planning and my semester was suddenly extended to the 20th. Despite this unforeseen inconvenience, I decided to bleep it and announce my return anyway (me @ the universe: BITCH HA U THOUGHT.).

Which brings us to the crux of the matter. Aside from throwing myself back into blogging (um, after I submit my last requirement, that is), this December 17th also marks my three – yes, three – years as a book blogger! Cue overwhelmed tears.
