You are invited to join Paula Weston on her blog tour! It’s time for North America to experience the finale to the Rephaim series! Visit our previous blog tours to see what readers had to say about the first two books, ShadowsandHaze.
So what is a blog tour?
Similar to an author tour where the author travels from store to store across the country, a blog tour is when a series of blogs post about the book during a consecutive number of days.
What do I need to participate?
Just three little things! First of all, you will need an active blog. Second, a love for reading. Third, a commitment to post on your scheduled blog tour date.
How can I help during the blog tour?
As a participating blogger, you will be sent a finished copy of Shimmerand/or Burn to read (depending on which tour you sign up for). On your assigned tour date, please post a review about the book for tour followers to see.
We will be promoting the blog tour by sharing your link on our own blog here, our facebook page, and twitter. Paula will also be sharing your posts on her website, facebook, and twitter page. We would greatly appreciate it if you could help spread the word too! Feel free to re-post your reviews on Goodreads, LibraryThing, or online retailers.
When is the blog tour?
The Shimmer blog tour is tentatively scheduled for March 14 to 18, 2016.
The Burn blog tour is tentatively scheduled for June 13 to 17, 2016.
Where do I sign up?
The sign up form closed on February 23. Thank you!
Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
Seven Dead Pirates
Written by Linda Bailey
Hardcover | 304 Pages | Ages 8-12
“Ahoy, ye maties: don’t miss this treasure of a middle grade yarn.” – Starred Review, School Library Journal
“Piratical fun well-stocked with colorful cast members living and arrghh.” – Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
Written by Ellie Marney
Hardcover | 352 Pages | Ages 14+
“Every Word is a fantastic sequel. The plot is almost unbearably fast-paced, the romance is as complex as the people involved, and the characters are wonderfully developed over the novel, even the ones you thought you knew from the last book. Every Word most definitely will remind you that “edge of your seat” is a phrase for a reason– I literally was on the edge of mine. Recommended!” – The Book Wars
The Rephaim, Book 2
Written by Paula Weston
Trade Paperback | 448 Pages | Ages 14+
“This atmospheric and romantic sequel will be embraced by fans of the first book.” – School Library Journal
Speak a Word for Freedom
Women against Slavery
Written by Janet Willen and Marjorie Gann
Hardcover | 216 Pages | Ages 12+
“Readers who think of slavery as an institution relegated to the past will be enlightened by this engrossing study of female abolitionists from the 18th century to the present day…. A powerful indictment of human rights abuses and tribute to the women who have fought them.” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
Five Thousand Years of Slavery
Written by Marjorie Gann and Janet Willen
Trade Paperback | 176 Pages | Ages 10+
“This well-researched global survey introduces readers to slavery practices, customs, suffering, uprisings, and revolts as well as antislavery efforts from ancient Greece and Rome to today’s world…. The authors promote global awareness and issue a call to action…. Informative documentary photos and factually rich sidebars enhance the text. A timeline lists pivotal moments from the rise of Sumerian cities to the 2001 Cocoa Protocol denouncing child labor on African cocoa plantations. This groundbreaking title brings the disturbing subject into historical and contemporary focus.” – Starred Review, School Library Journal
