Hello readers! Welcome to the Release Week Blitz for
Other Breakable Things by Kelley York and Rowan Altwood
presented by Entangled Teen!

Congratulations Kelley York and Rowan Altwood!!


According to Japanese legend, folding a thousand paper cranes will grant you healing.
Evelyn Abel will fold two thousand if it will bring Luc back to her.
Luc Argent has always been intimately acquainted with death. After a car crash got him a second chance at life—via someone else’s transplanted heart—he tried to embrace it. He truly did. But he always knew death could be right around the corner again.
And now it is.
Sick of hospitals and tired of transplants, Luc is ready to let his failing heart give out, ready to give up. A road trip to Oregon—where death with dignity is legal—is his answer. But along for the ride is his best friend, Evelyn.
And she’s not giving up so easily.
A thousand miles, a handful of roadside attractions, and one life-altering kiss later, Evelyn’s fallen, and Luc’s heart is full. But is it enough to save him? Evelyn’s betting her heart, her life, that it can be.
Right down to the thousandth paper crane.
Other Breakable Things by Kelley York and Rowan Altwood Publication Date: April 4 ,2017 Publisher: Entangled Teen


Excerpt:

We creep through old warehouses and through a wing of the hospital until padlocked doors obstruct us. Across the road is another building, pitch black inside thanks to the boarded-up windows, and seems to have been some sort of cafeteria or hall for events. I stop in the middle of the wide, linoleum-covered room, turn to Evelyn, smirk…and turn off the flashlight. She lets out a startled yelp, and I jog back a few steps as she reaches wildly for me.
“That’s not funny!” she shrieks, but there’s a laugh at the tail end of her words. I hear her footsteps coming toward me and move away, keeping just out of her grasp.
“Sounds pretty funny to me. C’mon. Hide and seek and we don’t even need a hiding spot.” As long as I can hear her voice, as long as I know she’s not actually freaking out, this can be fun.
We dance around the room in the dark, calling to each other and making our voices echo into the abyss.She tags my arm and runs away, leaving me to chase after her this time. I can envision her in the darkness, her hair starting to fall from its tie, and now and again when I reach for her, I feel the arch of her back, the curve of her hip, before she twists away from me again. I let her stay out of my grasp until I’m at my physical limit.
When I catch her, it’s with an arm latching around her waist and dragging her to me so quickly our legs tangle together and we tumble to the floor in an attempt to regain our footing.
Evelyn sags back against me, full of breathless giggles. I clickk the flashlight back on and shine it in her face, refusing to focus on the fact that I can feel the rise and fall of her chest as she catches her breath. “See? Told you it would be fun.”
“What would you have done if I hadn’t come along?” she asks, twisting around and batting at the flashlight to get it out of her eyes. “Played tag by yourself?”
“Maybe.” I redirect the beam onto my face instead. “I would’ve been a better opponent to play against.”
She laughs and gets up, offering her hands to me.My chest is tight and my lungs hurt a little. Today has definitely been pushing it too far. It’s the only reason I actually take the offered help to get to my feet.
“Did I wear you out?” she teases.
“You have no idea.” I motion for her to follow. It’s getting late and we still have driving to do tomorrow when the sun comes up to cover as many miles as we can. We’ve been messing around for hours. I lost track of time.
Except I don’t head straight for the car. Close by is one last building I want to check out: a series of dorms where the Navy Seals used to stay. At least eight floors of tiny apartments smaller than the size of my bedroom back home. We trek upstairs to the top floor and Evelyn pauses at the railing, tilting her head to look up at the sky. We have the same beautiful view as I had from the second floor of the first building we explored.
All stars. All sky. Nothing else.

Ninja Girl


Ninja Girl
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 30th 3017

Summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she kisses a hot stranger and even manages to escape his two security guards.

One stolen kiss…

Ash Stryker's senior year sucks. His politician father pulled him out of Chariot High, separating him from his championship-winning soccer team. Now he's stuck at a prissy private school with no friends, no team and no chance of being scouted. On top of that, thanks to the death threats his dad's received, Ash has a security tail aka professional babysitters. When the mystery girl from the movies shows up at his school, rappelling from the rafters, Ash knows one thing: he won't let her get away again.

One interesting job proposition…

After a seemingly random attack, Ash's mother surprises everyone. She hires Snow to be Ash's personal bodyguard until after the election. But can Snow's kick-ass skills hold up against the rising threats to Ash's family? More importantly, can Ash convince his ninja girl to screw ethics and kiss him again?

Opposites attract in this YA romance where a smooth talker meets his match in the tough girl who (literally) sweeps him off his feet. Moral of the story:

Sometimes even bad boys need a bodyguard.

cover-solomons-bell

I write because…
I’m better able to express myself on the page. Like many introverts, I tend to feel clunky and awkward when speaking, but writing offers the opportunity for perfect word choices and turns of phrase. A writer can embody any character they bring to life—even one with all the confidence in the world. 

If I were your favorite cookie, what would I be? Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie—my mother makes them at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I like to eat them warm before they’ve set. 

Plotter or pantster? There was a time when I waived my pantster flag proudly, but series writing has a way of forcing one into plotting. With the Genie Chronicles, it eventually became impossible for me to keep my character profiles and story arcs in my head, and I had to outline and plot. The process helped with insuring continuity and keeping me on track. 

What is your favorite type of character to write about and why? Villains. I used to be afraid of writing them, but a writing prompt I participated in with a group changed that. We were given an exercise to write a piece entirely from the perspective of a villain, and it gave me the opportunity to consider “bad guys” in ways that went beyond their use as foils and antagonists for a story’s main character. People are complex, whether they’re “good” or “bad.” That’s certainly the case for the villains in Solomon’s Bell, all of whom were wildly fun to craft.


Hamburgers or sushi? Sushi—of the rolled variety. I love rice! 

Name three things on your desk. iPad—it’s how I stream music when I’m writing. Cell phone—are any of us very far from our phones these days? A glass of sweet tea—I’m a Southerner, after all.

What books have influenced your writing style? I’m a humorist at heart, and everything I write comes from that place. Celia Rivenbark’s You Don’t Sweat Much for A Fat Girl and Jill Connor Browne’s Raising Children for Fun and Profit have both influenced my writing style when it comes to my blog. In terms of my fiction writing, Alan Bradley’s Flavia DeLuce novels gave me an incredible example to follow in terms of character voice. Bradley’s Flavia is young, but wicked smart and spunky. She’s also incredibly funny.

Tell us a little about your book. Solomon’s Bell is the second instalment of the Genie Chronicles and picks up within months of the conclusion to Heir to the Lamp. The book finds main character Ginn Lawson coming to terms with her genie heritage as a new threat to the secrecy of her abilities and the safety of her family looms large. With the help of friends, Ginn magically lands herself in 16th century Prague, where she searches for an artifact she hopes will enable her to thwart the Order of the Grimoire back home. The Grimms have proven they’ll stop at nothing to possess a genie as part of their magical menagerie, and their antics set Ginn on a collision course with the legendary Golem of Prague. 

What is next on your writerly horizon? While there is definitely a third Genie Chronicles instalment in the works, I’ve begun to contemplate a fourth. I also have a coming-of-age historical novel set in 1960’s Alabama that I’m eager to finish. Both projects involve extensive research, so I’m trying to balance that aspect of each while setting aside time to get actual words on the page, as they say. 

Top 5 Favorite Books
  1. Harry Potter Series, J.K. Rowling
  1. Stardust, Neil Gaiman
  1. The Founding Trilogy, D.M. Cornish
  1. The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis
  1. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, Beth Hoffman

To save her family, Ginn uses her newfound genie powers to transport herself and her friends to 16th century Prague. Only one thing there remains the same as at home: she can't let anyone know what she really is. The Emperor of Prague and those closest to him are obsessed with magic. In pursuit of it, they’ve waged war on the citizens of their city. In the citizens' defence, someone has brought to life a golem, a dangerous being with connections to an artefact capable of summoning and commanding an entire army of genies. Can Ginn escape the notice of the Emperor as she attempts to discover a way to defeat Prague’s golem in time to save her family from a similar creature? Solomon's Bell is the sequel to Heir to the Lamp and the second book of the Genie Chronicles series. Grab your copy now!

 Haley Hardy blinks up at me, her big blue eyes made larger with surprise. Haley’s the newbie: a tiny ten-year-old my family has been fostering for the last few months. Mom and Dad want to adopt Haley, but she hasn’t decided on Charles and Molly Lawson and their chaotic brood of six children yet. “What’s up, Haley?” I ask, trying to sound as though I don’t know she’s seen me appear from out of nowhere. I turn my back to her, retrieve the lamp from the ground, and stuff it into my pack. “Sixty-four percent of people believe the Loch Ness monster really exists,” Haley says in her high voice. “Of course, you’d have to use a point zero one significance level to test that claim; the survey I saw was online.” Half the time I have no idea what Haley is talking about. She’s insanely smart—a genius even. I can practically feel my IQ plummet whenever I try to have a conversation with her. “Um, really?” I ask, trying to imagine where this is going. Haley half turns toward the open door of the small barn as if she’s about to leave. I sigh with relief, but Haley seems to think better of it and turns to face me again. “Did you know that there’s an ongoing project to have collected evidence validated by science and the Sasquatch officially recognized as a species?” What? “Haley, where do you come up with this stuff?” I sink onto the wooden bench behind me, peering into the bright eyes of the strangest kid I’ve ever met. “I like to read,” she says, looking away. Between her right thumb and first two thin fingers, Haley rolls the fat glass marble she carries with her at all times. Mom says it’s a kind of security object, like how some kids develop attachments to stuffed toys or blankets from their babyhood. Mom also says the rest of us kids shouldn’t make a huge deal about it. Haley’s been in six foster homes in five years, and Mom figures the marble could be a keepsake from her life before all that, though Haley hasn’t said as much. She’s so intense sometimes; I don’t think anyone knows what to make of her. Mom says some of the other foster families exploited Haley; she’s been on a major talk show and even won twenty-five thousand dollars for one of her foster families on some game show before they abandoned her on the steps of the Children’s Methodist Home on their way to Las Vegas. Watching her with her marble, seeing how slowly she works the ball of glass flecked with every color of the rainbow, I can tell I’ve hurt her feelings. “Reading’s cool,” I say, hoping to reassure her. Sure, I thought about divorcing my parents when I found out we were taking in another kid, even when in the beginning the arrangement was supposed to be only temporary, but I kind of like the little brainiac. Mostly because of the way she’s able to keep Eli and Jasper in line. The Twosome are crazy about our new foster sister. Part of me is starting to wonder if Haley’s stats on Bigfoot could have anything to do with the boys’ obsession with B-grade horror movies. “I’d be satisfied with being half as smart as you, Haley. I’m having the worst time in algebra.” “Mr. Lawson is teaching me trigonometry,” Haley says brightening. “Algebra was a breeze.” My parents are homeschooling Haley; they say it’s for the best. She’d be at least a junior at my high school otherwise. I can imagine all four and a half feet of her struggling on tip-toe to reach a locker—that is if her statistics about the Loch Ness Monster didn’t get her stuffed into it. “I’m happy to tutor you,” she tells me. “Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind.” I stand and watch Haley eye the backpack on my shoulder. She looks from my face to the pack a few times. I think she’s about to say something about what she’s seen or thinks she’s seen with the lamp when Jasper bursts through the barn door. “Hay-wee!” he exclaims. “We need wou, quick! I fink we found a chupacabwa!” “It’s highly unlikely that a goat sucker or el chupacabra would be found this far north of Latin America, Jasper,” Haley says. She corrects my seven-year-old brother even as she allows him to tug her excitedly from the barn.
