I was hoping to do a lot of blogging done over the weekend, but I’ve been feeling under the weather lately. Nonetheless, no amount of monstrous migraines and high fevers would get in the way of me announcing the international blog tour for The Never Tilting World by my author queen, Rin Chupeco!
Friends, I haven’t been active in terms of blogging, and it’s all because college has been kicking me in the butt. Oof, what’s new?
But anyway, I am very, very excited to finally introduce this week’s blog tour for The Dragon Warrior by Katie Zhao! Katie is an incredibly dear friend of mine, and I’m so happy to be able to put together a little something to help hype up her debut novel.
Did any of you think that I’ve finally run out of blog tours for this year? Well, if I’m being totally honest, I thought so, too.
Initially, my blog tour for The Wolf of Oren-yaro was tentatively scheduled for 2020 so that it would be closer to the book’s release date. However, shortly after my author spotlight of K.S. Villoso (whom I love and adore because she’s been nothing but amazingly supportive of me and my book blogging), I came up with the brilliant — albeit, much more difficult and energy-consuming — idea of splitting the blog tour into two. Thus, this one’s going to be my most ambitious blog tour (or tours?) yet!
Hello from this side of the world! Throughout this whole week, a bunch of incredible book bloggers are going to share their love for the latest release from Talem Press, Bronwyn Eley’s Relic, which is her amazingly written YA fantasy debut. I am very ecstatic to feature this lovely book on my blog, and I hope all of you are equally excited!
Shealea, didn’t you just release a sign-up form for another blog tour a few days ago? Why yes. Yes, I did. And you can still sign up to read and review The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco. But okay, hear me out!
If you’ve known me or been following me for quite a while, then you may know that, despite the abundance of impulsive passion projects that I tend to do
like all the time, I am also quite the planner. My lineup of blog tours had been — more or less — set in stone since the start of this year (although some blog tours, like the one for Fonda Lee’s Jade War, just somehow magically fell into my lap and I couldn’t be more grateful to the generous publishers for entrusting me with the responsibility of promoting their books).
Dear friends, this is not a drill. Definitely not a drill.
Some of you might recall that a few months ago, I did the official cover reveal for Rin Chupeco’s next novel, The Never Tilting World. In that post, I shared an impeccably written excerpt that will have you clutching your pearls. But I digress.
With an abundance of pride and happy tears, I am honored to announce that I am spearheading an international blog tour for this wonderfully diverse gem of a book! The goddesses have been really kind to me and have gently dropped this huge honor onto my lap. Of course, it helps that Rin Chupeco is incredibly generous and kind as well.
In just a week, the highly awaited sequel of A Spark of White Fire, which is an impressively structured space opera inspired by the Mahabharata and other Indian myths, will finally hit the bookshelves! I had just finished my reread of the first book, and I was fortunate enough to have had the privilege of reading the second installment — both of which I read just two weeks ago — and all I have to say is fasten your seatbelts because the ride is wild, bumpy, and thrilling
(and the night is full of terror).
But I’m getting way ahead of myself, I think. As part of my recent blog tour for A House of Rage and Sorrow — which was aptly named as A Tour of Rage and Sorrow — I had the amazing chance to interview its author, Sangu Mandanna.
