Today is the final day in the DECEIVED Blog Tour. It’s been a long (and, to be honest, exhausting) fortnight. I never knew releasing a book required so much energy and mental acuity. I have survived, my characters have survived, and these bloggers have survived.
Being unafraid to stand up and speak out for what’s right and what’s True, no matter who stands with or against you, has always been important to me. From that grew what is, perhaps, the most integral aspect and theme of DECEIVED. It is the driving force behind all three books: no matter what, even if you stand alone, always stand for Truth. No mortal army can silence God’s Word.
On a different note, there are nine things which I wish to address:
First, I’ve seen some ship names floating about, so let me introduce the official ship titles: Rovelle and Tholder.
Second, thank you to the wonderful bloggers who have participated in this tour. It would not have happened without you.
Third, my immense gratitude to everyone who has been so supportive over DECEIVED. This book has taken me on a roller coaster of a journey, from a rejection, to thinking it would never be published, to today (thanks, Mom, for pushing me to do this ❤ ). You truly cannot publish a book on your lonesome.
Fourth, since I am a permanently fatigued pigeon who currently and simultaneously resides in four different worlds, I’ve projected two differing dates regarding the giveaway: May 7th (today) and May 10th (Tuesday). I am extending it to May 10th due to the error.
Fifth, do be sure to sign up for the giveaway! Or, if you’ve pre-ordered this story with its four minions of mayhem, be sure to fill out the pre-order swag form. Both links are below.
Sixth, I encourage you to visit the tour stops. These ladies have been a blessing, and I’ve appreciated the opportunities they’ve presented for DECEIVED.
Seventh, if you’ve read DECEIVED, let me know who your favorite character is! For those who have been keeping up with the Q&As and author interviews, you already know mine is Rogan. Yes, authors have their favorite characters. And/or tell me your favorite scene!
Eighth, stay tuned via this blog and my newsletter for more updates regarding giveaway opportunities, releases (a non-magical fairy tale retelling novella is in the works right now, projected to be published by the end of May/early June), and more.
Ninth, any questions about the characters? The book? The tour in general?
Thank you for stopping by and following DECEIVED on it’s blog tour adventure. I hope this book will touch lives and that you will be emboldened to stand for Truth after reading it.
Stay strong, stay steadfast.
