(Sela Blog Tour) Tour Encore and Wrap-Up

Spring is here!  Sadly with spring, the end of the Sela Blog Tour is here as well.  I am honored to be a part of this blog tour, and to be the closing stop.  It has been an eventful ride, with book reviews, author interviews, guest posts, and giveaways along the way.

Sela follows the story of one girl trapped in human form.  Once a dragon, Sela is thrown into the unknown to fend for herself.  As Sela journey's to find herself, she shapes her future as well.  Sela continues the story of the dragons of the Leland Province, while exploring the ability to change.  You can find my full review of Sela here.

Below is a schedule of the stops on the tour with direct links, and some notable posts you may want to check out.  The tour may be over, but you can still join in on the fun!

May 1 From The Bookshelf of T.B. (special tour encore and wrap-up visit)


Some highlights of the tour included:

-Lisa's Book Reviews (Character Interview with Jastin Armitage): A character interview that captures the essence of the character Jastin Armitage, and gives you a glimpse into the history of the books.  Jastin seems to come alive off of the page.

-Stuck In Books (Guest Post on where Jackie Gamber's characters came from): An insightful guest post as to where Jackie gets her inspiration from, and how her characters become their own.  Jackie compares her process to that of a kaleidoscope, and how her kaleidoscope "is always spinning, turning, exploring."

-Jess Resides Here (Guest Post on how Jackie Gamber matches teas to go with her books): Jackie compares her books to teas, and pairs them up with the perfect fit in this interesting guest post.  If you're a tea-lover, then this is definitely a post to check out.

-Ritesh Kala's Book Review (Author Interview with Jackie Gamber): An in-depth interview with Jackie that talks about her writing process, and some of her favorite things about her books as well.  A great post to get to know more about the author.

-Evie Bookish (Book Review of Sela): An enthusiastic review of Sela that covers what the reader enjoyed and some memorable quotes too.  A very detailed review, that will help you get a feel for the book if you have not yet read it.

-I Smell Sheep (Author Interview and Giveaway) and Darlene's Book Nook (Guest Post and Giveaway):  If you missed the giveaways earlier in the tour, here's your chance to still win a copy of Sela and see what it is that everyone is talking about.

-This is T.B. with Another Book Back on the Shelf...
Until Next Time, Keep Reading!
