I have a treat for you today. A couple weeks ago, I learned that May 24th was considered Brothers Day and I thought, "Hey, I have a book with two brothers. Identical twins to be exact!" How could I let this day pass without celebrating?
Last year, I found some cool blogs thanks to the A to Z Challenge. Not only did I subscribe, but I thought everyone else should read them as well. This year is no different. Here are my top blog finds of 2016's A to Z Blogging Challenge.
Yes, you heard right. You get a cookie for this. Just let me shove it through the computer speakers... Crap, it's not working. Okay, let me amend this. You clicked this so in YOUR honor *I* will eat a cookie for you. Trust me, it tastes delicious.
All silliness aside, I do have a favor to ask. May 24th is Brothers Day and since my YA, Being Human, has a theme of brothers, I thought I should do some promotion to coincide with it.
Well, I survived the challenge, so now it's time again to reflect on how I did and if I saw any need for improvements.
This year I struggled more with the challenge because of my day job. I kept up for the most part, but there were a few days I was too tired and only read short posts. A few Sundays I had to work too so I couldn't use that day for catch up either. But I only fell behind a couple times and only for a day.
No Insecure Writer's Support Group post for me today. I'm waaaaay behind on posting this for S. Usher Evans. Plus, not feeling to insecure right now, so hooray!
They survived The Island, but can they cross The Chasm?
Four months after Prince Galian was discovered alive on a remote island, he's adjusting slowly to life at the hospital under the Kylaen media's glare. His promises to Theo remain unfulfilled as fear of his father keeps him from taking concrete action. And the more he learns about the machinations in Kylae, the less sure he is that it's possible to make a difference. Across the great Madion Sea, Major Theo Kallistrate struggles to navigate the tricky political waters of Rave's presidential staff. To make positive change for her people, she must remain relevant and interesting to the Raven media and to the president. When he asks her to deliver a speech on her supposed two-month imprisonment at Mael, she's not sure she can stomach the lies. The Chasm is S. Usher Evans' breathtaking, fast-paced follow-up to The Island, which readers say is "not to be missed." Buy the first book in the Madion War Trilogy today for Kindle, paperback, and hardcover, and see below for a special preorder promotion for The Chasm, coming July 12th.
