Ivy League by Chris Waltz blog tour stop!!!

EEEPPPP!!!!!
I'm so excited about this!!!

Okay, here's the book!



“Within a few months, everything changed for me, and as anyone could probably guess already, not for the better. Life, itself, began to fall apart...

But I guess that’s what happens when you become a teenage drug-dealer.”

Jamie Brewer has just gotten the one piece of mail he’s been waiting for his 
whole life: his college acceptance letter. But when a series of unfortunate events makes paying tuition to one of the most prestigious universities in the country practically impossible, Jamie makes a decision that will not only provide him with the cash he needs, but may also get him killed in the process…

Selling drugs starts out well for Jamie, but things quickly begin to spiral out of control: his best friend and girlfriend are weary of his career choice, a local police officer is determined to catch him in the act, and worst, his partner in crime, Gabe, may be more dangerous than anyone ever imagined.

What begins as fun and games is about to become much more serious, causing Jamie to question just how far he will go and who’s lives he will risk in order to become Ivy League



Moment of honesty. I know this author, bought the book months ago, did not read it. Why? Well, honestly I think part of me forgot I had an unread book on the shelf, the other part, I was afraid. Not of the book or the content. But that I either would love it, and turn our friendship into me fangirling every time he favorites my tweet or sends me mush, or that I would hate it...which is something I don't like. I hate to hate a book. It eats away at me.
Anyway, I joined the his blog tour for a review, which I swear I'm getting to, and an INTERVIEW.... hehe... I LOVE INTERVIEWING!

NEWS FLASH.... I do NOT hate this book.
Yes, that means you should go purchase this book AND read it right away. DO NOT do what I did and wait for months on end... 
My review- (Which I wrote as soon as I finished so it remained fresh.)

So I just finished reading Ivy League by Chris Waltz.
*Stops a minute to catch breath*
WOW.
First, these characters have depth. If you think back to your own high school…you can probably pinpoint the Jamie or Gabe of your class, even an Airic or Riley.
Airic is a Jiminey Cricket kind of guy. The guy always there for you, wanting to help, and has a good conscious. He’s a great best friend, and genuinely cares about the well-being of his friends.
Riley was a pretty kickass person too. I can’t say too many people would likely be alright with what she was alright with. Can’t say she was feeling that way through the entire story, but she had hope.
Gabe is one scary dude. I really can’t say much else. He has a quality to him that makes you want to like him, trust him, even love him. But then he’s got this edge, sharp as a razor, and makes you wonder if you’ve been dooped into thinking he’s trustworthy.
Jamie is a guy in a tough situation. He’s faced with tough decisions and educates himself to the best of his ability before following through. Granted, his decisions may not always be the best…but no one is perfect.
I really enjoyed this story. It’s gritty and refreshing all at the same time. I love that Jamie chooses the cartoon devil on his shoulder more often than not. There’s too many books about goodie goodies choosing the right path, or attempting to. This main character knows he’s choosing the wrong path, but does it regardless. He has his own reasons for doing so. I can’t say I “approve” of his career path but it’s a decision that many are faced with.

Meet the Author

This is Chris (or as I call him, Toph.)

Christopher Waltz was born in Indiana in 1987 and promptly began writing once leaving the womb. While this is a complete lie, Christopher did begin writing around age eight at which point he penned and illustrated a sequel to the film "Jumanji."

Since that time, Christopher has continued writing and obtained a degree in 
secondary education from Indiana University's School of Education. He currently works with a non-profit organization and writes, hoping to one day be a famous and influential author.

He has recently published his first novella, "Come as you are" on the Amazon Kindle Store and lulu.com.

Now it's time for the interview! :D

How do you handle book jitters? Like when you release a book, or send to an editor, what do you do to relax or take your mind off of it?
For me, when I send something to be edited, the relaxation comes by knowing that I’m working to make it better. It’s always nerve-wracking to get it back and see all these corrections and mistakes, but had I not sent it out in the first place, those would never have been found… you know, until a reader pointed them out to me, which has happened and feels terrible.

Do you have a focusing technique?
The only thing that really focuses me is complete silence. I know a lot of people listen to music while they write, or do other things, but if it’s completely quiet, I’ll be in a better place. Coffee helps too.

Where is your favorite place to write?
I actually really like to write in my bed; it’s comfortable and familiar, so being able to just get into bed with my laptop also puts me in a good place. These answers are starting to make me sound like a hermit though…

What's the first thing you do when an idea comes to you?
I have to jot it down. If I don’t write it somewhere, on a napkin, in a notebook, somewhere, I risk losing it. I try to keep a Word document with all my ideas in it, but if I’m not near a computer when the idea hits, I’ll basically write it anywhere. I’ve even written ideas on my hand or arm before if no paper is around.

What's your biggest pet peeve?
Hmmm. As far as my own writing, my biggest pet peeve is using the same word too many times. I’ll go through my works in progress and see where I use the same word over and over. I may not see the word for ten or twelve pages at a time, but I have “go-to” words and I know what they are. One of them is “suddenly.”

Is there anything one of your characters have said/done that made you uncomfortable, even to write it?
There’s a scene in Ivy League where Gabe beats someone with a baseball bat. That really made me uncomfortable, not only to write, but to even include in the story. I knew I wanted it to be a gritty, terrifying scene, especially for Jamie who is watching it all happen from inside a car, but at the same time, I just kept thinking “this is wrong.” I mean, Gabe really doesn’t hold back; he’s threatening this guy, who is a teenager, and when the teenager finally is able to speak, his words are all muffled from being beaten. I almost took the entire scene out, but I kept it because I needed the readers to see how intense and how unstable Gabe really was.

Can you tell me anything about your next release?
It’s all up in the air right now! I’m currently working on an Ivy League sequel and a new, standalone called Nineteen, but I have no idea when or if either of them will ever see the light of day. I go through phases where my life is insanely busy and writing has to take the backburner. I hate it, but I have to prioritize sometimes. I plan to get back into writing again within the next few weeks.

Do you do anything special when you complete a WIP? (Funny dance? Tears of joy? Play pranks?)
I think I do a lot of reflection. And to be honest, and I’m sure you can agree, a work in progress never really feels done. So, I sit down, think about everything I just wrote, and wonder what I can change to make it better. I re-read everything and ask myself if it even makes sense, and if I’m lucky, it does.

Have you always wanted to be an author?
I hate to answer that question with a ‘no,’ but I really haven’t always wanted to be an author. I go through phases; I’ve wanted to be an actor, a hairstylist, an artist, a director… You name it, I’ve wanted to do it. I have wanted to be an author since about age eight though, so I think it has been the career choice that has stuck the longest.

(Something I ask everyone!) If you could have any supernatural power, what would it be?
I really love the X-Men, so I would probably take one of their super powers. The trick is that all super powers come with some kind of curse. I always thought having Cyclops’ laser eyes would be great… but then I realized I could never actually look at someone without killing them! I think I would choose to control the weather, though, like Storm. I’m never satisfied with the weather and having control over it would make me a much happier person.

If I mailed you my paperback copy of Ivy League, would you sign it and mail it back? (I could bribe you with a PA basket...)
Duh, yes!

What is something you want to learn? (Riding a bike? Formatting? Driving stick? Etc.)
I’ve recently become interested in learning to play the keyboard. I’ve also been dabbling in Roller Derby, so I think either of those can go on this list.

When a book makes you cry, you ______.
When a book makes me cry, I know I’ll read something else by the author. If an author has the ability to bring out emotion in me, they have proven to me, right then and there, that they have a special gift.

What was your favorite scene in Ivy League?
I think my favorite scene, other than the ending (because I can’t talk about that) is the scene when Jamie comes home from a date with Riley and basically everyone is waiting for him at his house, demanding answers. By this time in the story, he’s lied to so many people… it’s just really funny for me to see them all wanting the truth at the same time. My favorite TV show, Weeds, did something similar in one of its episodes, and I knew when I saw it that I had to incorporate it into Ivy League somehow. It was just too perfect.

The badminton scene in gym class... *write what you know* Do you feel the same way Jamie does about badminton?
The badminton scene was interesting to write. When I planned out the scene, I couldn’t decide on which sport they would be playing. I thought back to my own gym class and remembered having the exact same thoughts on badminton. The entire two weeks, I was very vocal about “why the hell are we doing this?!” Also, I knew in advance that Jamie was going to be “assaulting” Gabe to get his attention, so, I knew they couldn’t be practicing archery or anything too dangerous. Badminton seemed annoying enough and not too dangerous.

Teaser Tuesday!!

 I completely forgot last week to get a teaser post ready, so this week, I'm giving a teaser for A Message of Flowers, my NA Contemporary Romance AND the very first teaser for Soul Promise, book 2 of The Soul Mate Series.... Hope you enjoy!


Soul Promise (The Soul Mate Series, Book Two) teaser -
(***unedited and subject to change***)

When we get into the hallway Barry takes off running down the hall to the stairs, not knowing what else to do, I follow him. The running helps, some, but it makes my wolf try to surface even more. I push him back as best I can. This reminds me of the night I found my wolf.
            “Henry!” Someone said trying to wake me up. “Dude! Get the hell up!” Sounded like Barry.
            “No,” I mumbled and grip the body lying next to me tighter.
            Wait, there’s a body next to me? Where am I?
            Looking around the room I notice the room is mine, and the body is Skeeter.
            The day’s events passed through my head, birthday party, demons trying to attack my sister in the bathroom, and Skeeter falling asleep on my shoulder downstairs. Since she’s not sixteen yet, she doesn’t have the protection of the Ichor in her veins yet.
            “What Barry?” I sat up while keeping my hand on Skeeter’s arm to keep her protected.
            “It’s Jazzy, get out of bed and help me damn it!” He growled at me. I jumped out of bed and took off for her room.
            What does he mean by help him? He was supposed to be with her as soon as Seth left! What happened to my sister?! I hear Skeeter and Barry behind me but I can’t focus on what they’re saying. I reach her door and Barry slams into me.
            “Downstairs, idiot!” He growls and gives me a shove towards the stairs.
            I run down the stairs, letting my reach swallow the steps two and three at a time. I can hear her gasping for breath and trying to talk to Seth. Shit, something bad happened. If it was one of those wraiths, I would’ve heard her. Hell, everyone in the house would’ve.
            When I step into the living room and see the hand print glaring on her cheek, like a neon sign, my body quakes with rage. She looks broken - tears streaming down her cheeks, lip caked with dried blood, and she’s holding her side.
            Before I even knew what happened I ended up in front of Jazzy. Grinding my teeth, I ask a stupid question. “Are you okay?” When all she does is lightly nod, I close my eyes and hold her hand. I can feel the rage inside me brewing to a boiling and I know I’m shaking. I let go of her hand and hightail it into the kitchen. I just need a minute to calm down. I don’t know what’s happening.
            I close my eyes and try to breathe, but the rage inside me is suffocating. I need to hit something, someone.
            No one touches my sister!
            As I groan someone shoves me into the glass doors and reaches around to yank it open. “Go out! Now!” Barry growls in my ear.
            Insane with rage I lashed out at him. “Barry! Stop!” I shouted. “Jaz…” everything turned into growls as he pushed me onto the deck.
            My skin felt like it was on fire. My bones started cracking, muscles stretching and pulling in ways that I know aren’t possible. He quickly helps me down the stairs.
            “Stay calm,” Barry kept repeating. If I could respond I’d tell him to go to Hell.
            Pain consumes me as more fire burns through me and my bones begin to shift positions.
            “This is normal, you’re okay, just breathe.” Barry said in a soothing voice that I’ve never heard him use.
            Suddenly there’s an animal quality to my mind, everything smells different, clearer and stronger. I could hear Jazzy and Seth talking inside.
            “Your wolf is kinda small, Henry. No worries, we’ll beef ya up.” I just looked at him and my wolf growled out my response.
            We run out of the school and through the parking lot. “Woods,” I growl. He nods and I press my feet harder into the pavement, forcing myself into a faster speed.
            “Take it easy, you don’t have extra clothes!” Barry shouts reminding me that if I shift now, I’ll be naked. I take a deep breath and slow my pace as we cross the football field and duck behind the bleachers to access the tree line. “Hang a left!” Barry shouts from somewhere behind me as I weave through trees. I start to slow and yank both shirts over my head. When I come to a stop, I just drop my clothes and shift, letting out a loud and long snarl. Barry’s wolf responds, and I can only guess he’s telling me to shut my trap because we’re still on school property.
            This is what I need. I can finally breathe without the frenzied tightness in my chest.


If you are younger than 18, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!

You have been warned.
(I honestly don't think it's that bad, but seriously, don't read on if NA isn't your thing.)

A Message of Flowers teaser- 
(***unedited and subject to change***)

Anger boils my blood. “Who would do this?!” I fist my hands and turn away, going back to my plant.
            “I don’t know,” Corbin says, following me.
            I sit in the yard next to the damaged bush and finger the leaves. “I just want to sleep for like ever,” I grumble.
            He chuckles. “You don’t need to sleep forever.” He shrugs and sits beside me. “If you do, you won’t see the new growth, or go exploring, or experience anything this life has to offer,” he says and bumps his elbow into mine.
            I look at him sideways. “Thank you.” I smile. “Come on in, I’ll order a pizza.”
            He laughs, and we go inside. He orders the pizza while I feed Chowder. I can’t help but look at him any chance I can. He’s shirtless, it’s meant to happen.
            “Twenty minutes,” he says, catching me ogling him.
            I blush. “Sounds good.”
            Oh God, he caught me staring at his bare chest!
            He walks up to me. “Sunshine, you wouldn’t happen to have a shirt that’s, ya know, not girly?”
            I frown slightly. “Yea, I probably do.” I walk around him towards my bedroom and feel him follow me. “It might not fit as well as your own shirts, but it’ll do.” I bend over in my closet and dig in the box that contains some of my dad’s shirts. I smile as I pull out a “Pull My Finger” tee. Dad was a character, loved wearing funny tees at inappropriate events.
            I turn and see him staring at me and leaning against my bedpost. “Here,” I say quietly and hand him the shirt.
            He pulls it over his head without looking and laughs when he looks down. “Your dad wore a shirt like this one to graduation.”
            I nod and look away. That shirt will definitely keep me from ogling him. As I walk passed him to the door, he stops me by putting his hand on mine.
            “Thank you,” he whispers, tugging me into him for a hug.
            I wrap my arms around his waist and let him hold me. It feels nice to be in his arms, comforting and safe. I pull back and look up to him. “Anytime.”
            His brown eyes search mine and fall to my lips. I don’t move. I don’t breathe. I can’t. Anticipation traps me in a still form, while my insides scream, “Kiss me you fool!”

Cover Reveal for L.M. Augustine!!

Oh my!!! Lookie what I have for you guys!
EEEEEPPPPP!!!!!
<3




Two Roads by L.M. Augustine


Release date: August 26th, 2013

Category/Genre: New Adult Romance

Blurb:

The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.

Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.

But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.

And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't that obnoxious after all...

Okay... FUN STUFF!

My interview with the boss man!


Hi David, I’m so excited to have you here today!
As you know, I am a huge fan girl of yours, who is someone that you fan boy about?
            I fan boy over Maggie Stiefvater all the time. Like, SWOON fan boy. I really love her writing and her stories.

What is the absolute first thing you do the very minute an idea comes to you? Are you smooth and calm or is more like running around like a chicken with its head cut off? (I’ll admit I’m more of the chicken and screaming…)
            When an idea first comes to me, I usually write it down. I have about 50 Post-its all over my desk, most of which I can’t read. I’ve learned that I forget things too easily if I don’t write anything down. And, of course, if the idea is really good I may run around a bit.

What song are you obsessed with right now?
            I still really love “Demons” by Imagine Dragons. I’ve listened to it countless times and I still can’t get enough of it!

I saw on Twitter that you write the end first. Do you write the rest out of order too, or just end first?
            I DO write the end first! I usually have a general outline that I work from, but it’s not traditional by any means. I like writing the end first so I know where I’m going, and if I happen to take a few detours along the way I still know the final destination.

Do you have a special routine for outlining, plotting, writing, or editing?
            Outline. Write. Edit. Edit. Edit. Edit. Edit. I edit the most, and when I do a lot of things change. Most often, the general story stays the same, but I rewrite a lot.

Do you have plans for book signings outside of Michigan?
            I hope so! I’d love to travel more and see the world, and I also have really amazing readers all over that I hope to see one day soon!

If your characters take you to a place outside of your comfort zone, what do you do to keep some sense of normalcy outside of your head?
            My comfort zone is massive, so I’m not sure my characters would do anything that I wouldn’t like. They do surprise me sometimes, though. The biggest thing I have to remember is that my comfort zone might be larger than readers, so I often have to wonder what a reader would think of a scene. Sometimes I have to tone things down a bit.

Do you have a favorite scene from each of your books? If so, can you tell me?
            I love the scene in Light of the Moon when Calum and Kate are flying. To me, it was a very raw and real scene to write because both of them are completely open. Those are my favorite scenes, the ones that are as gritty as they are romantic.
 (That scene is one of my most favorite scenes! Like, I can still imagine the words, the feeling, and see the image in my head! LOVE IT!)

Least favorite time of day? (Mine is anytime before coffee, just sayin…)
            Me too! Anytime before coffee! But I would have to say a little after noon I tend to get unmotivated. My good times are in the morning and at night.

If you could go on a writer’s retreat, or just a solo writing vacation, where in the world would you go?
            I would love to travel, but I think a writing retreat (for me) would be best had in some quiet place near a lake or in the woods. I couldn’t write if things were too loud, and I wouldn’t want to write in a city with too much to do.

If you could have any supernatural power what would it be?
            I would love to control an element. Or fly. Flying would be cool.

When a book makes you cry, you ______.
            Read it again.

My last question, if you could have coffee or lunch with ONE character, from any book, who would it be and what would you ask them?
            Probably Hermione Granger. She’s just so smart and brave. I want to pick her brain and ask about magic!

And I hope you don’t mind, but a child was attached to my side as I did this and she wanted to interview you as well.
These next questions are from a fan of yours, my 14 year old. Remember, she gave you 10 stars for Light of the Moon…and crammed the book in everyone’s faces ;)
David this is Asia, Asia this is David.
Enjoy!
  1. What is your favorite color?
Hi, Asia! Thanks for these interview questions! My favorite color would have to be blue. Or green. Or both. Can I have two favorite colors?

  1. What is your favorite animal?
I’m a dog guy.

  1. How did you get the idea for Calum?
Calum is character that came to me because of emotional struggles. Not mine, exactly, but everyone’s. I wanted to show a character that had his heart of his sleeve, because you don’t see that often in the guys of literature.

  1. Will your books be made into a movie?
Wouldn’t that be cool! I would love Light of the Moon to be made into a movie. As of now, there are no movies plans. Cross your fingers!

  1. How did you come up with names for your characters?
I Googled a lot. Mostly, the characters just kind of popped into my mind. For Kate, I wanted her to have a name that sounded fierce and noble. For Calum, I wanted his name to reflect his quiet nature and thoughtfulness. I wanted Tyler to be everyone’s best friend. And I wanted Magdaline, the witch, to be as wild as her name.

  1. Do you have plans for another book, like in a different series?
I do! I can’t tell anyone anything about the new series right now – I’m still working on it and the details are a little fuzzy. I will say that it’s still in the paranormal/fantasy category. I also have a contemporary story I’m working on.

  1. What’s your favorite time of year?
Fall. Autumn. I love the leaves and the change and the cool weather.

  1. What new books are you looking forward to reading?
I’m really excited to read the new books from Holly Black and Maggie Stiefvater coming this fall. I’m also excited to read The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling, which I have but have not started yet.

Message from Asia: I love Light of the Moon and can’t wait for Shadow of the Sun! Write more books!

            THANKS ASIA! YOU ARE MY FAVORITE!


You can check out the other stops today!!

A demon with a pure heart, Micah Condie lives his life by a code of ethics, but breaking that code may be the only way for him to survive. A supernatural entity in her own right, Hope Gentry would do anything in her power to protect her loved ones, but she may be the one who puts them in peril.

 

When the Demon Impiorum challenges the laws that keep guardians and demons in balance, ancient enforcers of justice intervene. Micah, Hope, and their mentor Jonathan become entangled in a conspiracy that will test even the deepest love and trust.

 

Someone will commit an act of betrayal. Someone will forever abandon a loved one.

 

Someone will enter THE WICKED.

 
 
 
About The Author

Helen was a complete bookworm from the time she could sound out the words on the page. She’ll always be thankful for her mom allowing her to read at the kitchen table during mealtimes. Reading naturally led to writing by the time she was eight or nine – she started with fantasy stories, dabbled in contemporary fiction, and even tried a little romance. MYTHOLOGY is an urban fantasy/love story and in that way reflects some of her earliest writing interests. 

 

Things that inspire Helen to write are bowls of ice cream with lots of Magic Shell, the lack of cats or other things she’s allergic to in the vicinity, and plugging into playlists with her Neff headphones – the knit ones with the bear’s ears.
