Diversity December Bingo: My Ambitious TBR #diversitydecbingo

screen-shot-2016-12-03-at-10-09-37-am

Yesterday I mentioned that I’m participating in a reading challenge this month, and it’s Diversity December Bingo! I’m so so excited about this one. I’ve been making a conscious effort to diversify my reading, so this challenge fits in perfectly with that goal.  Most people are covering a 5-square line from the card. I’m being overly ambitious and attempting to complete as much of the card as possible. I’m hoping to read books to cover most of the 25 categories.

Cover Reveal: #BLUR by Cambria Hebert

#Blur
Cambria Hebert
(GearShark, #4)
Publication date: January 10th 2017
Genres: M/M Romance

Nothing but a #blur…

There’s a new kid in town, and he’s hell on wheels.

From what we’ve heard, it may be because

he knows exactly what hell’s like.

Lonely.

Scorching.

Unforgiving.

You may know his brother, the NRR hotshot

(and former GearShark cover model)

Lorhaven.

It’s only natural a driver with his background and family connections

has sped his racecar into the newest, hottest division.

But that’s not all.

Arrow may be following in big bro’s tread marks,

but he doesn’t plan to stay there.

He’s swerving onto the road less traveled…

and a lot more controversial.

He’s opening up about his private struggles with sexuality

to tell a story that’s gone unheard until now.

One thing’s for sure; Arrow may have a painful past,

but his foot is heavy on the accelerator.

With speed like this, he’s bound to leave everything behind in

nothing but a #blur.

Blog Tour & Interview: Spells & Sorcery by S. Usher Evans (+ A GIVEAWAY)

Title: Spells and Sorcery
Author: S. Usher Evans
Series: Lexie Carrigan Chronicles, #1
Publication date: October 4th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

You have magic.

One sentence, three words, four syllables. Enough to change my life forever. And I’m not talking about the whole spells and sorcery thing.

Lexie Carrigan thought the weirdest thing about her was she preferred watching documentaries and reading the newspaper to reality TV and Twitter. But on the eve of her fifteenth birthday, her aunt and sisters drop a bomb–she’s magical.

Now the girl who never made waves is blowing up her nightstand and trying to keep from wreaking havoc on her school. When a kind stranger shows up with all the answers, Lexie hopes he’ll be able to help her control her newfound powers. But Gavon may not be as kind as he seems, and soon Lexie finds out that being magical is the least weird thing about her.

Spells and Sorcery is the first YA fantasy from S. Usher Evans, author of the Razia series, the Madion War Trilogy and Empath.

Interview:

1. Describe your book in 5 words

Teen has magic, chaos ensues

2. What did you learn from researching for your book?

I generally don’t research, that’s why I write fantasy novels. 😄

3. What’s your favorite character you’ve ever written?

That’s a loaded question! I still really like the journey that my space pirate Lyssa goes on during the four books of the Razia series. It’s such a start-and-stop effort that when she finally gets to the end, it’s a great feeling.

I also really like Galian from the Madion War Trilogy because he’s probably the realest dude I’ve seen in literature.

4. When did you know you wanted to become a writer?

I’ve always been a storyteller, and I started putting down novels when I was eleven. I decided to take the plunge and go for it full-time about 2 years ago.

5. What’s your favorite book (or a book you’d recommend to others)? 

Another loaded question! My favorite books recently are the Relentless Trilogy by Karen Lynch, Hailey Edwards Black Dog Series, CJ Archer’s Necromancer series, and anything by Leigh Bardugo.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Although this isn’t the first interview I’ve shared on my blog, it was the first one I ever did :)

About the Author:

S. Usher Evans is an author, blogger, and witty banter aficionado. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she left the sleepy town behind for the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.. There, she somehow landed jobs with BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Television before finally settling into a “real job” as an IT consultant. After a quarter life crisis at age 27, she decided consulting was for the birds and rekindled a childhood passion for writing novels. She sold everything she owned and moved back to Pensacola, where she currently resides with her two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit.

Evans is the author of the Razia series, Madion War Trilogy, and Empath, published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing.
