Defy Blog Tour

Hey, blog tour members!

Here’s the page with all the information you’ll need for you blog posts for this launch.

Things you’ll find here:

  • Book Cover, Blurb, and link for the Kindle preorder on Amazon
  • About the author, author photos, and social media links
  • Shareable graphics
  • Graphic for sale on Dare and Deny
  • Link for the Facebook party
  • Link for the Goodreads giveaways
  • PDF and link for a sneak peek of Defy
  • Blog tour schedule and link

When sharing on social media, please use the hashtag #TheBladesofAcktar.

You don’t have to use all the pictures provided here. I figured I’d provide a variety for all of you to choose from.

If you’re doing a book spotlight, all you’ll need is the cover, the book blurb, and the about the author section.




The war for Acktar has begun.

With his betrayal revealed, former Blade Leith Torren flees into the Sheered Rock Hills, pursued by King Respen’s vengeful Blades.

Left behind at Nalgar Castle, Renna Faythe tries to find her purpose, yet that purpose isn’t what she expected.

Brandi Faythe has been torn from her sister, and that isn’t all right. If Leith can’t rescue Renna, Brandi will take matters into her own hands.

War demands sacrifice. Courage falters. Who will find the strength to defy King Respen?

Acktar rests on one hope:

The Leader is ready.

Dare and Deny on Sale

Dare and Deny will be on sale during Defy‘s launch.

*Please note (edited 5/31): You may have noticed over the weekend that the sale on the Kindle version of Deny suddenly cut out. Never try to schedule a sale on one of your Kindle books right when your Kindle Select membership is set to renew. It makes it difficult, just saying. Due to this, the sale won’t go back up until June 2 and will continue to run to June 4. Please make a note of that if you’re posting about the sale on your blog posts.

Facebook Party

Facebook Party Announcement

Be sure to invite people to the Facebook party! It’s going to be a fun night! Jaye L. Knight will be stopping by. I’ll be giving away copies of books by Jaye, as well as Nadine Brandes and Angie Brashear. There’ll also be giveaways for the audiobooks of Dare and Deny, and, of course, paperbacks of the whole series.

To top it all off, there will be a live character chat with the characters of The Blades of Acktar. What does this mean? It means that for 1.5 hours on June 2, several of the characters will have Facebook accounts and know how to use them. They’ll be there to answer questions and chat. Have you ever wanted to ask Leith a question? This will be your chance. Want to have a chat with Brandi? You’ll be able to do that too. It’s going to be grand chaos.

Here’s the link for the Facebook Party:
