Ewan Pendle 1

Goodreads Synopsis: Ewan Pendle was weird. Really weird. At least, that’s what everyone told him. Then again, being able to see monsters that no one else could wasn’t exactly normal …

Thinking he has been moved off to live with his eleventh foster family, Ewan is instead told he is a Lenitnes, one of an ancient race of peoples who can alone see the real ‘Creatures’ which inhabit the earth.

He is taken in by Enola, the mysterious sword carrying Grand Master of Firedrake Lyceum, a labyrinth of halls and rooms in the middle of London where other children, just like Ewan, go to learn the ways of the Creatures.

Help! I need somebody…

Help!

…not just anybody!

This MA Publishing student is in need of help from all of you lovely bookbloggers, publishers and authors who may or may not stumble across this post.

I’m currently working on my 15,000 dissertation. I’m looking at the impact and influences of blog tours, what effect they have for author, publisher and blogger alike.

But that is only possible with you guys!

Is there anyone willing to give a gal a hand?

giphy

I’ve got a few questionnaires to send out, basically to understand what drives you to take part in a blog tour and what you get out of it. There may be some follow up questions depending on the answers and where the research takes me, but it shouldn’t take too long or impose on your day at all.

I’ve now got the go-ahead from uni to start collecting this data. I’m really excited about this project and what I might discover along the way. But I’m going to hit a brick wall if no one is prepared to answer a few questions about a topic which, I hope, already be a passion.

So whether you’re an author embarking on a blog tour, a publisher or tour company promoting one or a blogger trying to help out, please drop me a comment if you are able to help!

Please?

Book Tag: The Ten Book Challenge

Book TagsHere we are again: Book Tag time! I’ve enjoyed the books I have read this month and hope you have enjoyed reading some of the reviews that have been posted.

Now, however, it is time to examine some books that have a real sense of meaning for me. I saw this post over at Brins Book Blog, which I strongly recommend you all go and have a look at.

The idea is not to think too deeply about the books here; your gut-reaction to the questions. Something tells me that I am going to find this quite difficult.

Without any further ado, here is my ten book challenge:
