The Takedown Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

The Takedown Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

Review: The Takedown by Corrie Wang is so good. I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I was intrigued right away about a book raising an issue to social media. I spend way too much on social media. Not only do I work in social media for work but I am also a blogger and do plenty of my own social media. There is so many situation problems that arise now that our whole lives are online. We live in a world where there is so much lack of privacy because everything is in an online […]


Piecing Me Together Blog Tour: Interview, Review, and Giveaway.

Piecing Me Together Blog Tour: Interview, Review, and Giveaway.

Review: Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson is a powerful story about a girl from a poor neighborhood striving to find a way to succeed. I loved how this story covered the facts on finding yourself and also what it means to be a girl of color in America. This story was filled with so much heart and I fell in love with it.  Piecing Me Together covers issues like race, discrimination, art, friendship, and feminism. With everything this book covers it had a lot of information compacted into it. Jade is a student at a school filled with mostly white […]

Ali: Hello Laura and Melinda. Thank you for stopping on the blog today to hang out with us. I have some questions to ask you guys. You can answer separately or together if you want. To start thing off, where did you get your inspiration for “Sanctuary Bay”? Laura and Melinda: So many places! We wanted to write a book that wouldn’t exactly fit into any one category. So Sanctuary Bay is a boarding school story, and a little bit of a ghost story, and a thriller, and maybe even a horror book. A: Did the two of you always want […]

Ali: Hello Laurie, thank you so much for stopping in it to talk with us here at Dazzled by Books. What inspired you to write “Firsts”? Laurie: I was working on an entirely different New Adult contemporary when the idea for FIRSTS struck me in the head. All I had was the name Mercedes and the hook—a girl who wants to give virgin guys the perfect first time. I didn’t know what happened beyond that. I just knew I had to write the rest to find out. As I wrote, I thought more and more about the double-standard that exists […]

Guest Post: How to Write Successful Sci-Fi with Alexandra Duncan
Posted September 21, 2015 by love2dazzle in Features, Giveaways, Guest Post / 0 Comments

I’ve been writing science fiction for about eight years, but I’ve been a fan of it all my life. Sci fi is a vast genre that can encompass everything from near-future medical advancements to far-flung tales of aliens and spaceships. Yet all successful sci-fi has a few common elements. What are they? The answer is in the genre’s name. First, you need some science. This is more complicated than is sounds. Some purists insist sci-fi isn’t sci-fi unless it includes “hard” science elements, like an explanation of how a spaceship’s fission engine works. However, hard science fiction is only one […]
