Blinded by the Light Blog Tour: Author Interview

For this part of tour I was very excited when Ms. Kipling agreed to let me interview her for her book Blinded by the Light. To read my review of the book Click Here. After the interview I will provide the links to where you can purchase the book. 

 1.)What four words would you use to describe “Blinded by the Light”?
A blindingly good read!
       2.)What inspired you to write this story?
I grew up in the UK in the 80’s when we felt that there was a real threat of nuclear apocalypse. So I’ve always been a little bit obsessed by how the world might end and most of my writing focuses on this. My friends joke about the emergency supplies I keep under my bed . . .because, well you never know when the Zombie hoards might attack. Personally I feel that I’ll have the last laugh when I’m safely barricaded in my bedroom eating tins of cold beans while my friends become zombie food.
For a long time I’ve also been concerned about how much influence corporations have on the government and how they use …

Blinded by the Light by Joe Kipling Book Tour: Guest Post by Joe Kipling and Giveaway

I am excited to be working with Ms. Kipling on this tour. Be sure to check back tomorrow March 28th for the author interview.  If you have not read Blinded by the Light I encourage you to read it. To read my review of Blinded by the Light Click Here. Before I give you more info about her book please enjoy her post as she writes about the moment she knew she wanted to become an author. 

The moment I wanted to be an author . . . With a last name like Kipling, I think that my future as a writer might have been predetermined at birth. . .  . . well, at least it assured me a good place on the bookshelves.   Like most writers I’ve always been an avid reader, but unlike many authors I can’t proclaim a life long ambition to be a writer. My dad was a factory worker, my mum a chambermaid, so I anticipated that when I left school I’d get a ‘proper’ job. Being a sensible type of teenager that’s exactly what I did.

Book Review: Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

Goodreads synopsis:The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
