UPDATE: September 12, 2012
Yay! All of the spots have been filled. BUT YOU CAN STILL PARTICIPATE! As long as you like getting cozy, we can double up the days. 🙂
FINALLY! Let the sign-ups for the Violet Fox Blog Tour commence! *party*
In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the book.
There are two kinds of people in the land of Marlenia.
The Marlenians, who live on the surface,
and the Freetors, who are forced to live underground.
The war between them ended two hundred years ago, but the Freetors still fight for the right to live under the sun. Fifteen-year-old Kiera Driscoll embodies the Freetors’ hopes as the Violet Fox. In a violet cape and mask, she sneaks around Marlenia City stealing food and freeing her people from slavery.
Then the Elders task her with a secret mission: retrieve a stolen tome that contains the secrets of Freetor magic, something the Marlenians both fear and covet. Kiera must disguise herself as a noblewoman and infiltrate the Marlenian castle before the Freetor-hating Advisor finds out her real identity, before her brother is imprisoned because of the secrets he hides, and before she falls any more in love with the prince she’s supposed to hate.
More is happening in the castle than she realizes, and Kiera is faced with a difficult choice. Will she be loyal to her people and their fight for freedom, or will she be loyal to her heart?
The blog tour for The Violet Fox will run from October 12 to November 13, 2012.
I’m looking for 40-50 bloggers to participate. Yeah I know, a lot! Large and small blogs are welcome. Participating doesn’t just mean reviewing: if you don’t have time to read, we can do an interview, or a guest post, or a simple shout-out instead! All creative ideas are welcome.
At this time, I can only give out eBooks. This is mainly because I won’t have the physical copies ready until near the end of September, where it will be too late to send them out! Also, the cost to send things from Canada is pretty atrocious, and I’m a one-woman press. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t borrow, win or purchase a copy! Thanks for understanding.
**IMPORTANT FUN NOTE** #1
In The Violet Fox, our protagonist Kiera Driscoll must disguise herself as a princess to retrieve a magical tome that rightfully belongs to her people. She infiltrates the castle as a guest of the Gathering Festivities. Held every year, The Gathering is meant to foster relationships between the four provinces of Marlenia…and to help the handsome Prince Keegan eventually choose his bride, who will rule the land of Marlenia with him in the future.
As part of the blog tour, we’re going to have our very own Gathering celebration! For one week (October 14 to October 21, 2012), there will be quizzes, a scavenger hunt, a treasure hunt…and YOU can visit Marlenia by starring in a mini choose-your-own-adventure-style story!
**IMPORTANT FUN NOTE** #2
As part of The Gathering celebrations and the blog tour itself, I’m going to be doing a special scavenger & treasure hunt. You read more about it on the Gathering details page, but five blogs will be chosen to place a Violet Fox mask image on their post. Participants in the “treasure” hunt will have to visit your blog, comment on the post, and submit the URL on the scavenger hunt form in order to win the prize. I will be choosing these blogs, to avoid spoilers 🙂
There are currently lots of spots open, so contact me by leaving a comment with your blog’s URL and/or email address with how you’d like to participate in the blog tour (review, interview, guest post, or any other suggestion). You can also use the contact form.
