Author Interview

On writing, duologies, and witchcraft | Q+A with Laure Eve

laure eveAuthor Interview | Laure Eve
Last month I teased on my Instagram that I got to interview the breath-taking Laure Eve and how I hoped to have it all transcribed soon.

Unfortunately for you, I lost the bloody audio.

Luckily Laure is such a Queen that she agreed to re answer the questions over email for us so I can still scream about her work.

I’m actually a little sad that I did loose the audio because we had such a great conversation, but once the others go live too I can also edit in links to there so you can experience some of the magic.

Keep reading to find out more about Laure Eve, The Graces, and her future work. Continue reading “On writing, duologies, and witchcraft | Q+A with Laure Eve”

Hey bookwyrms, I’m super happy to be taking part in the Book Blitz for one of my favourite authors Tiana Warner. If you’ve yet to hear of her… where have you been? Or maybe you just don’t recognise her without the mermaids?

Tiana is the author of the Mermaids of Eriana Kwai series that I love so much as I’ve jumped in two feet deep and doing what I can to help promote her newest book – Aries 181.

I was also lucky enough to receive an early copy for review which I got to read and enjoy whilst I was off with a broken wrist! My review will be posted later this week but for now, lets get you interested some more with an excerpt and giveaway.

Lastly, if you are a member of Books and Tea we are also working with Tiana for another giveaway and doing a read-along of this book next month too.

Copy won in a giveaway from the publishers

Synopsis: Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…?

Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore, and he’s sort of got a boyfriend, even if he’s kind of mean and only wants to meet up in secret.

Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him. That is, until the start of January, in which Nick and Charlie are placed in the same form group and made to sit together.

They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner…

From the author of Solitaire and Radio Silence comes a bind up of the first two chapters of Heartstopper, an ongoing webcomic.
