Zoe Cain knows that Grant Evertide is way out of her league. So naturally, she kisses him. Out of spite. Not only is Grant her brother’s number-one nemesis, but he has zero interest in being tied down to one girl. She’s shocked—and secretly thrilled—when they start spending more time together. Non-exclusively, of course, but that doesn’t mean Zoe can’t change his mind, one PDA and after-school detention at a time.

Zoe’s brother claims Grant is trying to make her his “Ringer,” an oh-so-charming tradition where a popular guy dates a non-popular girl until he hooks up with her, then dumps her. Zoe threatens to neuter Grant with hedge clippers if he’s lying but Grant swears he isn’t trying to trick her. Still, that doesn’t mean Grant is the commitment type—even if winning a bet is on the line.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains multiple PDAs, after school detentions, and gambling on the side. Warning: Betting on a boyfriend is bad for your health.

Landon’s mom will throttle him if he even looks at his future stepsister the wrong way. Problem is, Chloe is everything he didn’t know he wanted, and that’s…inconvenient.Watching her tear it up on a karaoke stage, stand up to his asshole friend,and rock her first string bikini destroys his sanity.

But there’s more than their future family on the line. Landon is hiding something—something he knows will change how she feels about him—and she’s hiding something from him, too. And when the secrets come out, there’s a good chance neither will look at the other the same way again…

Tour, Interview & Giveaway: Wax by Gina Damico

WAXWAX cover_hresAmazon/Barnes & Noble/iBooks/Goodreads

Pub. Date: August 2, 2016

syn

Paraffin, Vermont, is known the world over as home to the Grosholtz Candle Factory. But behind the sunny retail space bursting with overwhelming scents and homemade fudge, seventeen-year-old Poppy Palladino discovers something dark and unsettling: a back room filled with dozens of startlingly life-like wax sculptures, crafted by one very strange old lady. Poppy hightails it home, only to be shocked when one of the figures—a teenage boy who doesn’t seem to know what he is—jumps naked and screaming out of the trunk of her car. She tries to return him to the candle factory, but before she can, a fire destroys the mysterious workshop—and the old woman is nowhere to be seen.

With the help of the wax boy, who answers to the name Dud, Poppy resolves to find out who was behind the fire. But in the course of her investigation, she discovers that things in Paraffin aren’t always as they seem, that the Grosholtz Candle Factory isn’t as pure as its reputation—and that some of the townspeople she’s known her entire life may not be as human as they once were. In fact, they’re starting to look a little . . . waxy. Can Poppy and Dud extinguish the evil that’s taking hold of their town before it’s too late?

int

  1. Describe Wax in the length of a tweet.

Girl sneaks into creepy candle factory, girl meets creepy old lady who sculpts wax figures, girl accidentally adopts wax boy who comes to life, chaos ensues.

  1. What inspired you to write Wax?

I’d been itching to write a book with a character like Dud, someone who has suddenly been thrust into being without any past or childhood or context with which to view the world. Someone who’s just been dropped off on earth without any explanation and needs to figure out how to be human. Also, I really wanted to write about a crazy candle factory. I live near a rather popular flagship candle store and the insanity therein was something I couldn’t not write about.

  1. Poppy is quite the sleuth, who are some of your favorite pop culture investigators?

Veronica Mars has them all beat. Snark is the most powerful tool to have in one’s arsenal.

  1. How would you classify Wax? Is it more horror than mystery or is there a little romance on the horizon?

I’d argue it’s more humor than anything, but there’s certainly enough horror and mystery to keep it humming.

  1. Why should we root for Poppy?

When we first meet Poppy, she’s still raw from the most mortifying event in her life – appearing on a reality show talent competition where she slipped and fell and bled all over the stage, and all of it captured on national television. Her humiliation has gone viral, she’s a national joke, and her dignity is all but gone. But Poppy doesn’t want the rest of her life to be dictated by those few precious seconds, and so she’s striving to push past all that, to restore some of her reputation, and to do something that actually matters.

  1. Wax sounds a little like a fairy tale, would you say you draw inspiration from that?

A twisted fairy tale, absolutely. There’s a reason so many fairy tales are set in and around forests –they’re scary, dark, inscrutable places where magic lays in wait and almost anything can happen. Like rumors of living wax creatures skulking through the trees…

  1. Describe Dud in five words.

Puppy dog in “human” form.

  1. Do you have any favorite lines from Wax?

When Poppy and her friend Jill visit the Grosholtz Candle Factory: 

Poppy tried to ignore the costumed musical atrocity that was befalling the food court, but it was not designed to be ignored. A dancing pig dressed in overalls swung his bucket oh so merrily across a raised stage while a trio of cows sang and wiggled their udders. There was also a terrifying anthropomorphic representation of the state of Vermont ambling and cavorting about, his ceaseless, dead stare no doubt sucking the souls from the slack-jawed children who had the misfortune to fall under his tyranny.

“I will miss my eyes,” said Jill, “when I gouge them out. But I see no other course of action.”

  1. What do you want the reader to take away from Wax?

As always, I just want the reader to have fun. If I’ve made you laugh, I’ve done my job. Though an increased awareness of sentient wax beings possibly STANDING RIGHT BEHIND YOU would be beneficial to readers as well.

  1. Is Poppy a heroine? If so, what makes her so?

Yes, but for more subtle reasons than plucky-heroine-saves-the-world. She soldiers on even though literally everyone in the country thinks that she’s a failure and a laughingstock. She knows what people think of her, and still she looks them in the eye and defiantly holds their gaze. She knows she’s better than the horrible thing that happened to her, and she is determined to prove it. And then she goes and does just that.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: The Witchling Seer by B. Kristin McMichael

Cover Designer: Jessica Allain Art
Expected Release Date: August 30th, 2016
synCassie wasn’t happy when she got her first mate. Then she got a second mate. She’d give anything to have no mates; that is until she meets someone who once had the same fate as her. Instead of running from it, Cassie is told to embrace it and make her own choices. That is exactly what she plans to do, but how can she make choices when she never seems to have all the details? Something more is happening, and this time, the wendigo are not part of it. The peace Cassie brought between the two clans is very thin. She must work quickly to find a solution, but there always seem to be more questions than answers.

Excerpt
“I believe my niece needs to eat something. She’s had a few trying days,” John told the guys.
 
Understatement of the week, but effective. Both pulled out of her head as they got the hint that John was basically instructing them to leave Cassie alone. Again, she was going to have to thank him.
 
“Try weeks,” Cassie replied, grabbing for the syrup. Once her pancakes were covered, she reached for her milk first.
 
“Jared was just telling me that he and some of his friends decided they want to enroll in school in town,” Maria said, starting the conversation up again.
Cassie almost spit out the milk she was drinking. That wasn’t a good plan for anyone. The wendigo and the skinwalkers didn’t get along for even a moment. Jared and Nate only tolerated each other because they had to. They were linked together through Cassie. If that wasn’t there, she was pretty sure they wouldn’t be sitting together at the same table.
 
Jared shrugged. “I was pulled from school eight years ago and want to give it another try. I think my grade level matches up with you. Maybe we’ll be in the same classes.”
 
Nate’s level of annoyance with Jared was slowly rising.
 
“Aren’t you a senior like me?” Nate asked.
Jared shrugged again. “I’ve missed a bit of schooling over the past few years. I figure it would be best to go back a grade and make sure I didn’t skip over anything important.”
 
That wasn’t the answer Nate was looking for. His eyes flashed the sparkly blue of his tiger animal form.
 
Glancing across the table at Maria, she mouthed the words ‘help me’ to her aunt. There was way too much testosterone in the room for Cassie to deal with. She planned to finish her food and march straight back to bed. She would stay there until the guys went away. It was her day off, and Cassie wanted peace and quiet.
 
The back door flung open, and Cassie was relieved to see Whitney standing there. Rising, Cassie ran over to hug her friend, but stopped in her tracks when she took a good look at Whitney. Her friend’s tear-streaked face was distraught.
 
“What’s wrong?” Cassie asked.
 
Whitney started to cry. Maria jumped up and helped Cassie usher Whitney to the chair she had just been sitting in. Cassie stood by her friend, worried. Something had to be majorly wrong. Whitney barely ever cried. Unless it had something to do with Sam, her little brother.
 
“What happened to Sam?” Cassie asked.
 
She hadn’t thought they would allow someone that young to fight the night before, but she didn’t know how the clan worked. Whitney had explained that Sam had already changed twice into his totem. If you were old enough to marry at sixteen, maybe you were old enough to fight at twelve.
 
“They’re still missing,” Whitney sobbed.
 
“Who’s still missing?” Cassie asked.
 
John and Maria had freed all the witches the night before. Everyone should have been home tucked in their own beds if they slept like Cassie, or already beginning their day like John and Maria.
 
“Everyone. My dad. My brother. Six of the witches are still missing. My mother never came home.” Whitney began to cry again.
 
‘We didn’t touch them the whole time we had them,’ Jared quickly told Cassie even though her thoughts hadn’t drifted there yet.
 
If the wendigo didn’t do anything, and John had freed them, then where did they end up? Cassie looked up at her uncle, and the spatula was nothing more than a ball of metal in his hand. She turned to Nate, who seemed as confused as Jared did. Why were there six witches missing?
