Blog Tour: Don’t Read the Comments by Eric Smith (Excerpt)

551-03-Winter-Blog-2020-640x247

I’m super late with this post (Scheduled post didn’t do its job very well). But today I’m bringing you an excerpt from Don’t Read the Comments by Eric Smith! Thank you Inkyard Press for including me in this!

9781488056567

 

Slay meets Eliza and Her Monsters in Eric Smith’s Don’t Read the Comments, an #ownvoices story in which two teen gamers find their virtual worlds—and blossoming romance—invaded by the real-world issues of trolling and doxing in the gaming community.

Divya Sharma is a queen. Or she is when she’s playing Reclaim the Sun, the year’s hottest online game. Divya—better known as popular streaming gamer D1V—regularly leads her #AngstArmada on quests through the game’s vast and gorgeous virtual universe. But for Divya, this is more than just a game. Out in the real world, she’s trading her rising-star status for sponsorships to help her struggling single mom pay the rent.

 

Gaming is basically Aaron Jericho’s entire life. Much to his mother’s frustration, Aaron has zero interest in becoming a doctor like her, and spends his free time writing games for a local developer. At least he can escape into Reclaim the Sun—and with a trillion worlds to explore, disappearing should be easy. But to his surprise, he somehow ends up on the same remote planet as celebrity gamer D1V.

 

At home, Divya and Aaron grapple with their problems alone, but in the game, they have each other to face infinite new worlds…and the growing legion of trolls populating them. Soon the virtual harassment seeps into reality when a group called the Vox Populi begin launching real-world doxxing campaigns, threatening Aaron’s dreams and Divya’s actual life. The online trolls think they can drive her out of the game, but everything and everyone Divya cares about is on the line…

 

And she isn’t going down without a fight.

The 3 book series that got me back into reading

2019-10-03 08.03.47 1.jpg

Do you ever just think about the books that introduced you to reading? I haven’t thought about it in a long while but today was one of those days. When I thought about the books that got me into reading I got this sense of nostalgia. That need to read those books again just to remember what the experience was like all over again. As far as I can remember I’ve always loved to read but I did go through a stage where I hardly picked up anything. The books that got me into reading will probably be really familiar and similar for some of you as well. Here goes nothing.

Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Author: Leigh Bardugo, Kit Seaton, & Louise Simonson // Published: January 7, 2020

★★★

 

Synopsis

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law–risking exile–to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer–a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies–mortal and divine–determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
