A Q&A with Cindy Cipriano, author of Fading

Today’s Book Blitz is a bit different than the ones I usually take part in. Instead of an excerpt from the book, I’ll be sharing a Q&A with the author. It’s quite an interesting Q&A, too; I think you’ll enjoy it!

But before we get to today’s Q&A with Cindy Cipriano, the author of Fading, I encourage you to take a moment to hop on over to Cindy’s Rafflecopter. There, she’s giving away a Clean Teen Publishing Mystery Box (or eBook prizes for an international winner).

Now, let’s get to that Q&A, shall we?

Book excerpt: Once Upon A Time, by Blair Babylon

I grew up on princess stories–though, admittedly, quite often I saw them in the form of Disney movies. Still, I loved them, and that love continues today.

It’s not a surprise, then, that I love to see the concept behind them twisted, as well. That doesn’t necessarily mean an author needs to take them in a dark direction, though I certainly enjoy that sort of twist. I just mean that I like to see them taken in a new sort of direction.

Like, for instance, the direction Blair Babylon has taken with her new novel, Once Upon A Time. Based on today’s excerpt, this novel takes the typical princess tale and turns it on its head with a sharp sense of humour, and something that can only be described as sensual. It definitely leaves me wanting to read more.

Before you keeping reading for the excerpt, though, take a moment to head on over to Blair’s Rafflecopter. She’s giving away a $100 gift card, a signed paperback, and a secret mug.

Book recommendation: The Geography of You and Me, by Jennifer E. Smith

The Geography of You and Me, by Jennifer E. Smith

We all crave something that makes us feel good once in a while. For me, one of the ways of satisfying that craving is finding a light, romantic, will-they-or-won’t-they (you know they will) sort of book.

The Geography of You and Me, by Jennifer E. Smith, had been sitting on my shelf for months. I was saving it, hoping that it would be the perfect choice when I had exactly the type of feel-good craving I just described. That craving hit me hard back in December, and The Geography of You and Me immediately popped into my mind. I didn’t hesitate to pick it up and start reading.

And you know what? It didn’t let me down.

Cover reveal: Somebody to Love, by Aurelia Fray

It’s been a while since I’ve done a cover reveal, hasn’t it? Almost a month now. I’m not sure why that is–it certainly isn’t for lack of nice covers being created.

Regardless, I’m glad to be taking part in today’s reveal. And let me tell you, what a cover to be revealing! The cover for Somebody to Love, by Aurelia Fray, certainly lives up to the mood put across by the novel’s summary.  It’s fun, it’s cheerful, and it makes me want to get my hands on a copy of the book as soon as possible so that I can bury my nose in it.

Are you ready to check it out?
