Goodbye for now!

So I've got good news and I've got bad news. Bad news first!

Lisseth and I are leaving The Book Paparazzi. Leaving of course this lovely blog with no one to run it. Our book tourishness will be essentially....gone. However there's good news to fix all that!

Part of the reason we are leaving is because we've both gone our seperate ways in the touring industry, moving on to bigger and better! So while TBP helped us to establish our roots and get to know this business, now we get to go full speed ahead with our new touring sites. So where did we end up?

Well Lisseth took the plunge and opened up her very own new tour site! You can find her promoting books at Yes I'm Bookish Blog Tours! Way to go Lissy! She's doing a great job and is the place to go if you are looking for a tour and a wonderful host! Not to mention it's very affordable! Go book your tour or sign up to be a host now!


Merp Squad Blog Tours
As for Hannah, she's gotten into crazy amounts of trouble by ganging up with her pals of the Merp Squad and opening The Merp Squad Blog Tours. Business is booming, with their first tour hitting the blogosphere next month and tons of fabulous tours on the schedule. Join the squad now!

***********************************

So that's where we're headed! We had so much fun this year thanks so everyone who helped on the Stung tour! But now it's time to take things bigger and better!! So will we be seeing you in the Bookish and Merp Squad tours?

XOXO,
Hannah & Lisseth

THE TOUR BEGINS! [Day 1]

So, after some awesome prep work, the tour is finally underway!!!!!!!! We are so excited to present the STUNG tour into the blogosphere for your enjoyment! We've got tons of great reviews/interviews/swoon-worthy moments, excerpts and SO MUCH MORE that you can find as you check out all the tour stops! So without further ado....Day one!


Stung by Bethany Wiggins
Release Date: 4.2.13
There is no cure for being stung. Fiona doesn’t remember going to sleep. But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered—her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead. Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand—a black oval with five marks on either side—that she doesn’t remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost. She’s right.

Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-like wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.Now Fiona has awakened branded, alone—and on the wrong side of the wall.
There's the book again for your excitement heightener! It wounds amazing right?! And it is! So make sure you follow the tour to see what everyone else thought of the book!
And now.....a Tour Kick-Off Note from the Author! 
Hi guys! First of all, I have to give a huge thank you to Hannah and Lisseth at The Book Paparazzi for hosting and organizing the STUNG blog tour. They've don a phenomenal job! And now, after waiting for what feels like forever for STUNG to come out, it is finally here! IT"S HERE!!! (Well, almost. April 2 to be exact.) I am so excited--can you tell? Here are a few interesting tidbits that might make you a little more excited to read it. 

First of all, it is based on a nightmare--you'll find out more on the blog tour.

Second, the most precious natural resource in STUNG is honey . . . and were' giving away honey sticks to some of you lucky guys.

Lastly, STUNG is based on a real, true global worry--Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder. STUNG is the book that could happen in real life . . . tomorrow (*insert freaky music).   

So, on that dark, doomsday note,  follow the blog tour and enjoy!!

Bethany Wiggins
Bethany Wiggins has always been an avid reader, but not an avid student. Seriously!!! She failed ninth grade English because she read novels instead of doing her homework. In high school, she sat alone at lunch and read massive hardback fantasy novels (Tad Williams and Robert Jordan anyone?). It wasn't until the end of her senior year that the other students realized she was reading fiction--not the Bible.

Seven years ago, Bethany's sister dared her to start writing an hour a day until she completed a novel. Bethany wrote a seven-hundred page fantasy novel that she wisely let no one read--but it taught her how to write. Since then she has completed six more novels, each one a little better than the one before.The fifth book she wrote, "SHIFTING" is represented by Marlene Stringer of the Stringer Literary Agency and was published by Walked Book on Spetember 27, 2011!!! (Visualize happy dance (: )
Are you thoroughly excited to see the rest of the tour unfold?! Well you should be! And we don't only have Stung goodies....we have STUNG GOODIES! :D Looky! You can enter the giveaway here! And after you do that, don't forget to check out the other post today!
