The blog tour kicks off today and runs throughout the week. You'll find the links here as they go live.
Day 1: Jean Book Nerd - interview and giveaway
"I had every intention of making Jack likeable, and then changed my mind from the moment he opened his mouth. So, it created an interesting character – someone who seemingly exists as a positive force in Sasha’s life, only to turn out to be a huge douche."
Day 2: The Bookie Monster
'The writing is terrific. The plot is executed perfectly. The characters, even minor characters, intermingle with one another flawlessly. Overall this book was a fantastic read. And there is a sequel – American Savage – that has made my summer must read list!'
Day 3: Books, Bones & Buffy

Day 4: The Book Gazer - interview
"I’ve come to realise that I’m drawn to exploring why people do bad things for what they believe to be just reasons - from contemporary cannibalism to computer hacking. I want to understand, and even empathise, which can create an unsettling relationship between the character and the reader."

Day 7: The Cover Contessa - interview and giveaway
'My family never have any idea what I’m writing from one book to the next. There have been times when I talked about how my day went, but nobody paid any attention. So, over the years, I’ve just done my own thing. Sometimes, they’ll see one of my titles in a bookstore and express surprise that I wrote it.'
Day 8: Jenna Does Books - dream cast, review and giveaway
