Keeping this news hush hush — well, almost hush hush (of course, I had to tell a few close blogger friends to keep myself from exploding) — was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done as a book blogger. It comes as no surprise that Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim is one of my most highly anticipated releases this year, and the moment this incredible opportunity dropped onto my lap, I wanted to scream about it into the world. But I digress, and I think I’m getting way ahead of myself.
With the unceasing support from the author (seriously, Elizabeth, you are a rockstar) and the much coveted blessing from the publisher, I am extremely humbled and honored to announce that I am organizing an international blog tour for Spin the Dawn! YAAAAS!
As a diverse book blogger, nothing makes me happier than supporting diverse titles and being able to get these books into the hands of passionate readers – which is why I feel incredibly honored to be organizing a blog tour for Brittni Chenelle’s most recent novel, Kingdom Cold, where most of the characters are Black or Asian.
One other thing to be excited about is that this is the first ever creative blog tour hosted by Caffeine Book Tours. Because this will be a creative blog tour, you can definitely expect wonderfully unusual content from a bunch of creative, amazing bloggers!
The essence of Quick Kindle Steals is pretty simple and straightforward: hunt down any number of discounted (preferably $2.99 or less) or free e-books (either permanently or time-limited prices) and share these finds on my blog. Hopefully, doing this will help introduce struggling readers, such as myself, to more titles that they can afford!
This isn’t a weekly feature, but I lurk around Amazon so frequently that I’ll definitely be doing more volumes of this! I also make Twitter threads about limited-time Kindle deals so be sure to follow me on Twitter and check out the #QuickKindleSteals hashtag. Also, please take note that you need to have the free Kindle app installed in your device before purchasing any of these books.
Today marks an extremely special day about a book that’s personally close to my heart. If y’all have been following my blog before it rebranded into the golden brown, sunflower-filled space it is today, then the title Secondhand Origin Stories might strike a familiar chord to you. I’ve gushed and lovingly screamed about this wonderfully diverse literary gem on more than one occasion. In fact, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to organize a blog tour for this book, the #SHOSPH blog tour with a huge bunch of talented, passionate bloggers.
There are honestly so many aspects in Secondhand Origin Stories (written by the amazing Lee Blauersouth) that I absolutely love — its family-centered superhero plot, its remarkable bluntness in tackling social issues, its heartwarming portrayal of friendship and loyalty among a diverse group of superpowered teenagers, and the list stretches interminably. With that said, I am genuinely overjoyed to inform all of you that Lee Blauersouth’s self-published YA debut is celebrating its first year! Yep, today marks the first book birthday of Secondhand Origin Stories.
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.
Hi hey hello! I haven’t really been blogging in a while (and it sincerely feels like it’s been forever), but I am very, very excited to finally announce a little something today: the second blog tour from Caffeine Book Tours… with a bit of a twist. Does that sound intriguing? Well, keep on reading! (Or, you know, keep reading so we can all drool over the unbelievably gorgeous cover together.)
