Announcing the STUNG BLOG TOUR!

It's time to kick Book Paparazzi back into semi-action (what? We're still insanely busy with school! :), and what better way than to host a Blog Tour?!!!! I can't think of one, can you?  So, it's with great excitement that Lisseth and I get to reveal the First Paparazzi Blog Tour of 2013! We're hoping this isn't also the last...

I can't even tell you how excited we are to be hosting this tour, the book is fantastic and we're super psyched to drag you guys into THREE WEEKS of awesome promotion and fun!! Here's a little bit about the book and author:

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.

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 (: )
