VIRAL by T. Gephart 

Available Now!

Synopsis:

White Trash Circus will be taking an extended break and won’t be playing any time in the foreseeable future. Please lodge all your complaints to my guitarist—and my ex best friend—who I found inside the girlfriend I’ve had since high school. I will pull the freaking knife from my back and continue—without either of them—when the time is right. With enough hate and anger coursing through my veins to keep me in therapy for life, I’m going to save my cash and let the music heal me. Prepare all your bleeding hearts to be tormented with the most righteous, heavy and cataclysmic tunes to ever come out of me. So there’s that to look forward to. Thank you for all the support over the years, the gigs, the love and most of all memories. Don’t trust anyone and stay metal—Vaughan.

PS. Connor, you left your guitar and rig at my house so I took the liberty of relocating it to my front lawn. I might have dropped it on the way out the door. In your own words, brother, “Sometimes stuff just happens.”

PPS. Our drummer spontaneously combusted and is no longer with us.

WhiteTrashMegaFan- Whoa! Is this real?

VaughanLover4Eva – I love you Vaughan, you were too good for her anyway. I want to have your babies.

HeavyBrad69– So rock and roll!! Can’t wait for the new stuff, it’s going to be metal AF!

Nico – Ummm, Vaughan, what about me?

LicksNStick – LOL awks

White Trash Circus – No one cares about the bass player, Nico.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

Friendroid Tour Banner

FRIENDROIDStranger Things meets robots in this sweet story about an unlikely friendship between two boys—one human, one android. 

Eric Young is an android, but he doesn’t know. He does know that he’s just moved to Ashland, so it’s important to make the right kind of friends—the kind that would be interested in skateboarding and the new Slick sneakers his Uncle Martin sends him.

Danny Lazio doesn’t have any friends, but he doesn’t care. Even if his classmates don’t accept him, he still has Land X, the online role play game that he’s actually really good at. But then Eric takes an interest in Land X, and suddenly Danny thinks he might have found a real friend…if he can figure out the mystery behind Eric’s sudden disappearances and strange lifestyle.

It becomes harder to ignore the weird events that happen only around Eric. But uncovering the secret behind Eric’s identity is an act that might cost them both as powerful forces soon move in around them.

This heartfelt story about friendship and what it means to be human is sure to tug at your soul—or your soul-chip if you’re like Eric.

*Blog Tour* Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution- E.E.Charlton-Trujillo

40879919Series: Fat Angie
Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: Candlewick (March 5, 2019)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0763693456
ISBN-13: 978-0763693459

More trouble at school and at home — and the discovery of a missive from her late soldier sister — send Angie and a long-ago friend on an RV road trip across Ohio.

Sophomore year has just begun, and Angie is miserable. Her girlfriend, KC, has moved away; her good friend, Jake, is keeping his distance; and the resident bully has ramped up an increasingly vicious and targeted campaign to humiliate her. An over-the-top statue dedication planned for her sister, who died in Iraq, is almost too much to bear, and it doesn’t help that her mother has placed a symbolic empty urn on their mantel. At the ceremony, a soldier hands Angie a final letter from her sister, including a list of places she wanted the two of them to visit when she got home from the war. With her mother threatening to send Angie to a “treatment center” and the situation at school becoming violent, Angie enlists the help of her estranged childhood friend, Jamboree. Along with a few other outsiders, they pack into an RV and head across the state on the road trip Angie’s sister did not live to take. It might be just what Angie needs to find a way to let her sister go, and find herself in the process.

Praise for FAT ANGIE: REBEL GIRL REVOLUTION

Fortunately and refreshingly, the text gives Angie no weight-loss arc…A welcomingly awkward, offbeat journey for a “gay-girl gay” girl with many heartaches. ―Kirkus Reviews

In this companion to the Stonewall Award–winning Fat Angie, Angie’s girlfriend has moved away, Angie is constantly bullied as she starts as a sophomore after repeating her freshman year, her mother still can’t stand her, and her former best friend, Jamboree, is back in town…it’s still good to see Angie, a very human combination of neuroses, fears, truths, and desires, break through some of her defenses and take risks, from singing to loving. ―Publishers Weekly

My Review:

“Life is heart and ache. You can’t have one without the other.”

I’ve been waiting for this second book for six years and it’s finally here. Fat Angie was one of those books that opened my eyes to the world of bullying and it made so many emotions come pouring out of my soul all at once. I was happy, sad, and sometimes angry at the people and scenarios of the book. I’m glad Angie is back with a more hopeful story.

Angie is in her sophomore year of high school and she’s hoping that this year is different. But she soon learns that things haven’t changed and people are making it their top priority to make her life a living hell. Making her relive her breakdown at a pep-rally and the death of her sister. And it’s not like she is getting any help from her Mother at home.

Things are not going her way this year and she is ready to throw in the towel. Her best friend, Jake is dating someone who used to bully her, Gary Klein is at his worst and tormenting Angie until she almost gives up, and her ex-friend Jamboree is back and thinner than ever. She feels as if there is no one else to go to, now that her sister and her best friend are gone. Angie’s mother is making her go see a therapist about her behavior lately but she has to prove to her new therapist that she is getting better and learning how to stand up for herself.

Angie is trying to stay strong as they dedicate a memorial statue to her deceased sister. At the memorial service, someone that knew her sister leaves a letter her sister wrote to her before she passed away. Reading the note floods Angie with emotions and now she’s on a mission to live out the dreams of her sister.

Angie and Jamboree put the past behind them as they go on a journey of a lifetime and live out Angie’s sister last wishes. They are traveling through Ohio and seeing the sights her sister wanted them to go visit and to get Angie out of her comfort zone. In a packed RV, will Angie learn to love herself without her sister? Or will she let her past ruin her life?

Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution was a really good book. It was emotional to get through because of what Angie was dealing with. It really hurt when her own Mother wouldn’t stand up for her and chose to believe someone else. That really got to me. But the end was something of a fairy tale and it filled me with joy. The deeper meaning is what holds this all together.

*Blog Tour* A Map of Days- Ransom Riggs

BOOK DESCRIPTION 

Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery–a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.

Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited–truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.

Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom–a world with few ymbrynes, or rules–that none of them understand. New wonders and dangers await in this brilliant next chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children. Their story is again fully illustrated by haunting vintage photographs, but with a striking addition for this all-new, multi-era American adventure–full color.

My Review:

“Never have I doubted my soundness of mind as often as I did on that first night, when the bird-woman and her wards came to save me from the madhouse.”

The Peculiars have finally made it to America!!

My friends and I jumped at the chance to receive an advanced copy of this book at Ala. It was worth every minute we waited in line. I’m so over the moon that I’ll finally have a galley of a Peculiars book to add to my collection.

We were all saddened by the death of Abe and it still tears me apart to think about it. The Peculiars are here on official business and to also say goodbye to a dear friend, but we all know that when they all get together something devious always gets in their way.

I really enjoyed this one even though I didn’t find it as adventurous and mind-twisting as the others in this series. It did capture my attention and I couldn’ put it down. There was just something different about this one.

I loved reconnecting with the Peculiars. Everything about this was just fantastic.

What really got me was finding some truths about an old friend. What comes to surface will shock you and I can’t wait for another book in this series. I’m saddened that we’ll have to wait over a year for another one.

The Vintage and creepy photographs are back and if you don’t add this to your tbr then you’re really missing out.

Richelle mead signing

Richelle mead is my fav author and should of seen me when new schedule was being put up and I saw I had not 1 but both days Richelle was in a area both times I danced around my break room happy as all get out. But day of 8-26-18 was in collegeville pa. A town about 40 mins west of Philadelphia. I get there and what do I see this place serves wine and my first book store that ever did!!

Soo chilling reading waiting. About 4 some other people come for the signing so get talking with them and was nice. Finally the signing happens. Richelle comes out. It’s always funny no matter what signing someone is afraid to ask there question. I have read the emerald sea already so I asked while also being kind to others who have not read it I said did you intend to write a character in emerald to be professor umbridge in hp. She said no but as think of it now seems similar. But more on puritans sorta life base. Then few others went on then Richelle asked Day before her signing she did a q&a on Reddit and she announced what she is writing next, she asked who of us have read it. I rose my hand and Richelle was out loud typical you have to me and mind you still at the signing. But shocking no one at the signing had besides me. Then rest were majority Vampire academy based. Which Richelle couldn’t say much. But yea then went to signing part and got all my arcs, manuscript and rare edition books signed

Plus Forgot soundless in the pic.

Lady we got posters for the glittering court that was rad!!

But that was my day. I loved every moment and hopefully meet Richelle again.
