Blog Tour: Realm of Knights by Jennifer Ann Davis @AuthorJennifer


Realm of Knights
Jennifer Anne Davis
Publication date: September 10th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.
In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.
Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.
To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.

Let's welcome Jennifer for an interview today!

1. Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else? No, I didn’t always want to be a writer. I originally went to law school. However, I ended up deciding to get my teaching credential. I taught a year of high school English before having my first child. Once I had kids, I started writing. Now that my kids are older, I considered going back into teaching. However, I love writing, creating words, and developing characters so much, that I plan to continue writing.
2. How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish? From concept to completion, four months. However, that is writing and revising five days a week, 8-10 hours a day.
3. How do you come up with themes for your stories? Once I create my characters and the world in which they live, the themes naturally develop naturally.
4. Do you have a schedule of when you write? Yes. The second my three kids are at school, I sit and write until I pick them up from school. Then I usually try and get in another hour or two at night once everyone is in bed.
5. How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing? It’s hard to balance everything. I treat writing as my full-time job (because it is). It allows me the freedom to be there for my kids when they need me. However, when I’m on a deadline, it can be rough revising when I need everything to be quiet around me. Thankfully, my family is very supportive and we make it work.
6. What elements do you think make a great story line? Interesting characters that the reader can connect with, an obstacle the main character has to overcome, a fantastic villain, and a unique love interest.
7. What was the hardest thing about writing a book? Revising. Writing the first draft is the fun part. Revising—which is basically rewriting the entire story—is difficult for me. I want to make sure that everything I’m thinking and feeling in my head is exposed on the page. It usually takes me about 25 min to revise one page.
8. How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite? I’ve written 15 books. I don’t know that I have a favorite. Maybe The Key simply because that book is what solidified my love for writing. It was the first book I wrote for me instead of for the market or to get published.
9. Do you have a favorite character? In Realm of Knights, I adore Reid. However, I have a soft spot for Ackley.
10. Where do you write? At home, I write either in my writing room (aka the writing cave), on the couch, or sitting at the kitchen counter. Oh, and in bed. But I also write sitting at the soccer field during my kids’ practices or at the pool during swim meets.
11. When deciding on how to publish, what directed you to the route you took? I originally went the traditional route. Working with three different publishers, I learned a lot about revising, marketing, and the book world in general. Now, I publish everything I write myself under my own publishing company.
12. Have you gotten feedback from family about your book(s)? What do they think? I usually don’t let family members read my books until they’re published. My oldest son enjoys my books the most, but he’s an avid reader.
13. What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing? I love to go to the beach, read, and take hikes.
14. What kinds of advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing? Read. Read everything you can in the genre you want to write.
15. What is your favorite book? favorite author? Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write? I don’t have a favorite book or author. There are too many that I love. A lot of times it depends on my mood as to what book I want to read. Some of my favorites include: Maria V. Snyder’s Poison Study, Julianne Donaldson’s Edenbrooke, and Sarah J. Maas’s Heir of Fire.
16. Do you have any go to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such? Yes. I have two people that read everything I write. They’ve both been with me for years, and I couldn’t write without them. One started out as my biggest critic and now is my biggest cheerleader. The other is a pro at finding plot holes and inconsistencies.
17. Are you working on anything now? I am currently writing the third and final book in the Knights of the Realm series. After this book is done, I’m going to take a month long bread to decide what to write next.
18. Tell us 5 things that make you smile. My adorable Weimarainer, the warm sun on my face, watching my middle son surf, seeing my daughter have an amazing soccer game, and watching my oldest son achieve his goals.
19. Tell us 5 things that make you sad. How about 4 things. A bad review, when one of my kids gets hurt, watching one of my kids work so hard for something but fail, and not being able to spend the holidays with extended family.
20. If you could travel anywhere in the world to visit a place so you could use it as a background for a book, where would it be? England. I want to go and stay in a castle in England.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Jennifer. It was great having you!

Book Blast: The Last Huntsman by Page Morgan @PageMorganBooks


The Last Huntsman
Page Morgan
Publication date: September 9th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
No women. No children. No torture. The Huntsman has his rules.
For years, Tobin has done his emperor’s bidding, eliminating threats to the Empire of Morvansk. But when he is ordered to kill the lovely Princess Mara, Tobin’s absolute loyalty ends. The emperor’s punishment is swift and lethal, and Tobin is left with only one desire: vengeance.
Stay quiet. Stay hidden. Stay free. These are the rules Ever lives by.
Raised as a boy by her overprotective father, Ever has something the Morvansk emperor covets: mirror magic. With it, she can see anyone, anywhere, through the mirror’s glass. The emperor stole her mother years ago for this same magic, and now, he wants Ever, too.
When Ever’s mirror shows the wounded rebel huntsman approaching her village, she’s compelled to help him. But as Tobin and Ever grow closer, and their secrets intertwine, they’ll have to follow the rules they’ve always lived by—or break free from them, once and for all.
EXCERPT:
The shriek of a bird drew my eyes to the trees above. When I looked down, Mara stepped into the clearing. The call of the nuisance bird muted, as did everything else in the world surrounding the glade. She came through the tall grasses, her lavender colored skirts gathered in her hands to keep the hem from getting soiled against the ground.
I closed my eyes and forced forward the image of my mother. Of Kinn, of Lael. The worst five minutes of my life were about to unfold, and I had to keep those three faces present if I had any hope of following through.
I opened my eyes as Mara searched the glade for Orin, the man she believed had beckoned her there. She lifted her face to the sun, most likely chilled from the walk through the dim forest.
Mother.
Kinn.
Lael.
I looked into the hushed wood. Her ladies would have made plenty of noise had they followed, and her guards’ steel swords and metal fixtures would have been a clattering racket. She’d come alone, just as the note had bid.
She fiddled nervously with the front tucks of her skirt, not seeing me as I stood. I parted the flexible pines and stepped past the young green needles, coming to the edge of the brook’s banking. It was then that the princess spotted me. She let out a small yelp and dropped her skirts. Covering her mouth with her hands, Mara released her breath.
“Huntsman, you frightened me.” She lowered her hand and sent me a small smile, though it quickly fell. “What are you doing here? You didn’t…did you read the note you delivered this morning?”
Don’t look at her. Don’t listen to her.
“Forgive me, of course you didn’t. Are you hunting?” she asked as I stepped across the three rocks in the brook and into the glade.
The sun hit me, and my legs turned to dead weight. They didn’t want to move any closer. My hands, too, stayed heavy at my sides. The blade with the prince’s crest was inside my trouser waistline, and my own personal blades were where I always kept them.
“I’m meeting the prince,” she said, her voice notched louder. “It’s not very indecent, considering we are to be married,” she added with a half smile.
I strode through the grass toward her, pushing the slab of stone in my chest lower to crush the rapid beating of my heart. Mara’s shrewd eyes narrowed. My presence made her nervous, yet she didn’t back away as I came to within a foot of her.
Mother.
Kinn.
Lael.
“The prince is not coming.”
Mara looked sideways at me. “How do you know this?” Her facial muscles went slack. “You’ve done something to him.”
“I’ve already told you,” I said. Level. Clear. “The emperor did not send me to kill the prince.”
She wanted to believe me. Just like she believed me the other night when I said we were friends. I could see it in the way she shifted her bottom lip side to side, gripping the inside of it with her teeth.
“Then why have you followed me here?” she asked.
There was not supposed to be any conversation. I’d been taught to be brief, to make sure the target knew who had come for him and why, and then to finish before the target could beg or offer money in return for leniency.
“I didn’t follow you.” I reached inside my jacket and gripped Orin’s blade, the gold of the crossed hilt cool under my hot, sweaty palm.
She stared at me with a confused grimace, paying no attention to my hand.
“I led you here,” I said. “It is Emperor Frederic’s order, princess. I am only his servant.”
The last sentence spilled out of my mouth unintentionally, and with it, I caught the first whiff of my decaying will. The Huntsman didn’t explain himself. The Huntsman didn’t make excuses.
I pulled the dagger and stepped forward so swiftly Mara didn’t know to resist. She was taller than me, but I was stronger and faster; I wrapped my arm around her neck and her knees buckled, her chin wedging tight inside my crooked elbow. She screamed, but my bicep and forearm squelched it into a sputtering croak.
Mother.
Kinn.
Lael.

Blog Tour: We Are The Ghosts by Vicky Skinner @vickyskribenten


We Are The Ghosts
Vicky Skinner
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: August 13th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
After her estranged brother suddenly dies, a girl embarks on a road trip to rediscover who her brother really was in Vicky Skinner’s contemporary YA novel, We Are the Ghosts.
When Ellie’s estranged brother, Luke, dies in a car accident, she’s not sure whether to be devastated that she lost the person who was once her best friend or enraged, still, that he left without a word a year ago. Now, the only people who seem to understand what she’s going through are Luke’s best friend and his ex-girlfriend, who she bonds with over their desire to figure out where Luke went when he walked out of their lives.
As she gets closer to them, and closer to Cade, a boy who seems determined to get to know her better, she realizes that she’s not the only one with reasons to be angry at Luke. And when Ellie makes a discovery that changes everything, she and her new friends hit the road, hoping that following Luke’s trail will bring them answers about the life Luke was living away from them.
1. Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else? 
I’ve known since I was thirteen that I wanted to be a writer. Before that, I wanted to be a painter, an Egyptologist, a toxicologist, amongst other things. Turns out, writing is the only thing I’m good at!
2. How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish?
That’s a tricky question because the process can take years, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m actively working on a project for years. Every November, I write a first draft of a new book in 30 days and then put it away for 6 to 12 months while I work on other things. Once I pull it back out, it’s about 6 more months for me to rewrite and revise before I feel comfortable submitting anywhere.
3. How do you come up with themes for your stories?
I focus on my life. All of my books start with a little seed of truth somewhere in my past and then usually grows into a completely fictional tale. Mostly I focus on what I would have wanted someone to tell me when I was a teenager.
4. Do you have a schedule of when you write? 
I’m blessed to be able to write full-time right now, so I usually write during normal business hours, from about 7 AM to 3 PM.
5. How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing?.
It can be hard sometimes. I’m a bit of a workaholic, so I always want to be in front of my computer. But I make it a point to be done working by the time my husband gets home and to do my best to say yes to every social opportunity I have so that I don’t isolate myself. I always try to remember that if I’m not on deadline, the writing can wait.
6. What elements do you think make a great story line? 
Romance will always be my top. I love love stories. But I also love friendship stories and stories about family. I love stories that make people feel less alone, that someone can connect to on a bone-deep level, and I absolutely love books that delve into a corner of the world I’ve never thought about before.
7. What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
The hardest thing for me in writing is seeing the big picture and being willing to let go of my vision when the characters want to take the wheel. But I think I’ve gotten better at it??
8. How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite? 
At last count, 19. I definitely have two favorites, but neither of them have been published yet!
9. Do you have a favorite character?
Yep. Yep. Yep. His name is Jonathan, and I really hope the world is going to get to meet him very soon!
10. Where do you write?  
I take every opportunity I can! I mostly write at home, in my office, but I also write in cafes and libraries. I keep a notebook in my bag for writing any time I’m not doing something else.
11. When deciding on how to publish, what directed you to the route you took? 
Just in case anyone doesn’t know, I published through Macmillan’s imprint, Swoon Reads, which allows writers to upload their manuscripts to the SR website and then editors choose their favorite projects to publish. I actually didn’t plan to submit another book to Swoon Reads, as I’d already submitted two, but I was feeling shaky about the book I was working on (HOW TO BREATHE UNDERWATER, on sale now!), and I wanted some reader feedback, so I put it up on the site, and next thing I knew, it was getting picked for publication!
12. Have you gotten feedback from family about your book(s)? What do they think?
Most of my family aren’t big readers, but my mom and my sister love the two that are out. Anytime my mom tells me she cried, I take that as a win. And very recently, my stepfather told me he loved WE ARE THE GHOSTS which was a big deal because I’ve never heard him compliment a piece of art, ever.
13. What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing?
I’m a movie buff, so any time I’m not writing or reading, I’m probably watching a movie. I also love to run, sketch, cross stitch, paint my nails, bake, go to church, and just generally get into shenanigans with my husband and my friends.
14. What kinds of advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing? 
I feel like everything that could be said has been said before: Write what you want to read, write all the time, finish the book, never stop writing. But honestly, if you’re just starting out, what I have to say is write about whatever you want to write about and then don’t let anyone see it. Write uncensored first, and then start thinking about the eyes that will see it and how you want the story to be perceived. 
15. What is your favorite book? favorite author? Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write? 
This is an easy one! My favorite book is Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen, who happens to be my favorite author and the author who has been the biggest inspiration in my writing career.
16. Do you have any go-to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such? 
I have different people that I go to for different things. One of my best friends, Meghan, is my go-to when I’m stuck on a plot that isn’t working. I feel like she always asks the right questions. But my beta reader, Stephanie, is awesome because she’s not a writer and is always the best at reading from the perspective of just a reader which is extremely useful. And I’m also always bouncing ideas off my husband and my mom.
17. Are you working on anything now? 
Always! I’m rewriting an old story right now that I’m really hoping is going to see the light of day soon as it’s a story that’s very much near and dear to my heart.
18. Tell us 5 things that make you smile
My husband, dog videos, hearing an amazing song for the first time, swoony boys in books, The Greatest Showman
19. Tell us 5 things that make you sad
Politics, Avengers: End Game, The Handmaid’s Tale, seeing my friends suffer, books where someone dies
20. If you could travel anywhere in the world to visit a place so you could use it as a background for a book, where would it be?
Norway. I’ve considered for a few years now taking a research trip out there for a few months because I would love to write a book about the teens in Norway.

Thank you so much for having me!!!

I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I’m not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I’m probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I’m a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.

Blog Tour: Zinnia by Christina Bauer @CB_Bauer


Zinnia
Christina Bauer
(Angelbound Offspring #3)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: July 30th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
As the last dragon shifter, I live alone, hiding in one of Earth’s sacred deserts. My human handlers tell me that I have no parents, no name, and no purpose other than to train for battle and one day become a vessel for the reincarnation of Chimera, the greatest dragon shifter of all. Sadly, Chimera’s rebirth will mean my own death. But my handlers say this sacrifice is a noble fate that will rebuild the dragon shifter world.
I shall die on my seventeenth birthday. That’s five days from now.
Then I hear music thumping across the desert. I take my mortal form, follow the sound, and find humans dancing in what they call a rave. There is a stage and a rock band. One thing quickly becomes clear: Unlike the audience, the musicians are dragon shifters, just like me. And one of them, the guitar player Rhodes, makes my knees turn watery. The lead singer, Kaps, has something strangely familiar about her.
It all adds up to one conclusion: My handlers lied to me. I’m not the last of my kind. Memories reappear. I had parents once. Portia and Tempest. I even had a name. Zinnia. Perhaps I have a reason to live as well. I step past the dancing humans to confront the players.
I will find out the full truth, no matter what.

An Interview with Author Christina Bauer
As part of her launch tour for ZINNIA, author Christina Bauer stopped by the Cover Contessa. Here’s the interview!
1. Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else? 
I knew this was my goal since I was six years old. In fact, I used to stand up in class and spontaneously tell stories. The nuns loved that.
2. How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish?
I’ve gotten faster over time. My first book was two years. This book took me about three months.
3. How do you come up with themes for your stories?
For me, my stories all start with questions. What would happen if? How can I make this character really uncomfortable? Basically, I’m a bitch to my characters and it grows from there.
4. Do you have a schedule of when you write? 
Every day for at least six hours. The time changes depending on other factors, but I’m pretty consistent.
5. How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing?
Not always too well. It’s hard!!! Sometimes I tell my husband “I have to go into my writer hidey hole for a few days to hit a deadline.” He and my son deserve a medal.
6. What elements do you think make a great story line? 
At least one character needs to start off somewhere emotionally and then end up somewhere else. That sounds easy, but it’s super hard, especially when you’re writing series and the ‘fall in love’ arc is already done!
7. What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
Having my characters get hurt or lose someone they love. I have to do it, but I hate it.
8. How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite? 
I’ve written 24 so far, and I think my favorite is now ZINNIA!!!
9. Do you have a favorite character?
Zinnia. I love that she never loses her moral compass, even when things get tough. In fact, I broke my own ‘emotional arc’ rule with her. I really wanted to explore a heroine who stuck to her guns, if that makes sense. It’s a little like the Book of Job (if you’re a Bible fan) only with a happy ending!
10. Where do you write?  
Starbucks. With lots of mochas. Oh, yeah!
Thanks for having me stop by! I enjoyed
