Blood Rose Angel book tour + interview + giveaway!

Blood Rose Angel book tour

Today I’m thrilled to take part in the book tour for Liza Perrat’s latest novel Blood Rose Angel! A historical drama/romance set in fourteenth century France, the book is the latest in a series about the women of L’Auberge des Anges—kinswomen connected by their talent for healing, and the mysterious angel talisman they carry. Read on for more on the book, and author interview, and an awesome giveaway!

1348. A bone-sculpted angel and the woman who wears it—heretic, Devil’s servant, saint.

Midwife Héloïse has always known that her bastard status threatens her standing in the French village of Lucie-sur-Vionne. Yet her midwifery and healing skills have gained the people’s respect, and she has won the heart of the handsome Raoul Stonemason. The future looks hopeful. Until the Black Death sweeps into France.

Fearful that Héloïse will bring the pestilence into their cottage, Raoul forbids her to treat its victims. Amidst the grief and hysteria, the villagers searching for a scapegoat, Héloïse must choose: preserve her marriage, or honor the oath she swore on her dead mother’s soul? And even as she places her faith in the protective powers of her angel talisman, she must prove she’s no Devil’s servant, her talisman no evil charm.

Blood Rose Angel, by Liza Perrat. Release date: November 14, 2015. Genre: historical fiction, drama, romance. 349 pages. ISBN: 9782954168197 Get it on Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Smashwords

Giveaway: ‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir (paperback)

The MartianHappy Friday readers! One of the biggest sci-fi flicks to hit theaters this year is The Martian, based on Andy Weir’s wildly popular novel of the same name. Since the movie is hitting theaters this week, I’m giving away a paperback copy to one lucky reader–all you have to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter widget below!

The novel is told from the point of view of astronaut Mark Watney, one of the first humans to set foot on the surface of Mars–and now, perhaps the first human to die there. Stranded after a freak accident separates him from his crew, Watney is believed dead by everyone back on Earth, and with only a few emergency supplies his chances of survival are slim to none. But he has some MacGyver-style tricks up the sleeves of his spacesuit, which he puts to good use as he fights to get home.

The giveaway is open internationally through October 11; everyone can earn a freebie entry, but you can also earn additional entries by leaving a comment or following on my social media channels (I especially recommend following on Bloglovin’, so you don’t miss out on future posts and giveaways!). Good luck!

Unfortunately I can’t give away a plate of cookies here on the blog—I’m pretty sure they’d be fuzzy before they made it through the post to the winner!—but I’m giving away something else delicious instead: a bundle of Aloha Superfood Dark Chocolate bars.

If there’s a way to make these bars better for you, I’m not sure what it is: they’re vegan, kosher, USA-made, non-GMO, free of soy and gluten, and made with fair trade ingredients. They’re loaded with superfoods like wheatgrass and moringa for a nutritional boost. Oh, and they’re pretty tasty, too!

One reader will win a six-pack of original dark bars; you can enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. Impatient? Head over to the Aloha website and order your own six-pack in original dark, hazelnut & fig, macadamia & coconut, tropical twist, or cereal crunch.
