DECEIVED Blog Tour: Welcome + Book Spotlight

Welcome to the first day of DECEIVED’s blog tour! I am so excited for you to learn more about my debut novel and to introduce this story to the world. DECEIVED releases tomorrow.

At the bottom of this post, you will find giveaway information and the blog tour schedule. Be sure to stop by each blog!

To start off the fun, take this “Which DECEIVED Character are You?” quiz and let me know who you scored!




New Adult Christian Allegorical Fantasy


In a land built upon lies and deception, uncovering the truth can be deadly.

Therese Westa is sick of death, but taking lives is what provides for her younger sisters. When a client approaches her with an unusual request, Therese takes the job offer, which includes the condition of “no questions asked”. As Therese uncovers the reason for the request, she is faced with a choice: kill an innocent man or save her sisters.

Therese’s hesitation to carry out the assassination thrusts her into the aftermath of a dangerous chain of events. Caught between security and truth, Therese must choose where her loyalties lie, for the answer will determine who survives.

    Wow, I’m an assassin.

    Learning new things every single day here …

    But now that I think about it, I feel like Therese and I do share some personality similarities. Just not lives, thankfully. But that little quiz was so fun! 🙂

    Looking forward to this blog tour!!

    Eeeeeekkk, so exciting!!!! I’m so proud of you for getting this far, Madi! You’re still alive and your sanity is in check. 😉 *squeals again* I can’t wait to hold this baby in my hands! (By ‘baby’, I mean Rogan, of course. *smirks*) He’s all mine. *sighs happily* AHHHH TOMORROWWWWW

      Thank you, girl! ❤ Sanity in check? You sure about that? 😉 You were a tremendous help. Of course. He's so thrilled at your enthusiasm (not, but don't take it personally; that's how he is). Excuse me? He's my character! Yep, tomorrow. Kind of excited, kind of nauseous.


    • Madi's Musings

      I’m sure. XD Kind of surprised you didn’t get Ivelle, though, because you said you and her are similar…but Holder’s great! I actually got Rogan and I couldn’t be happier because he’s my baby and my favorite. 😀
