Blog Tour: Bittersweet by Tyffani Clark Kemp @TyffaniCKemp @HelpingHandsMel

Title- Bittersweet
Series- The Kaveesh #1
By Tyffani Clark Kemp
Publication Date- October 15th


She'd reconciled her life without him. His return would be Bittersweet.

Welcome to Mother Cora’s, where the offspring of the Kaveesh learn to coexist with humans.

One hundred and twenty years ago, the Kaveesh came to Earth to save the dying planet from a disease that gorged itself on anything in its wake. Buildings crumbled to dust. Soil and plant life were consumed. Two-thirds of the Earth’s population perished.

The only thing the Kaveesh asked in return was to help save their dying race. Breeding programs began and the half-breeds were born.

Lirabel is a half-breed and an overachiever. Despite a few setbacks, she’s scheduled to graduate early from Mother Cora’s and become the Half-breed Ambassador to the Humans.

Enter Jonas. They were best friends until he broke her heart and disappeared five years ago. Now, he’s back, but Lirabel couldn’t care less. There are more important things to worry about…

Like finishing her last year of school and becoming ambassador. Or the half-bred students losing control of their Kaveesh strengths who are being sent into quarantine. Or how the breeding programs are still up and running.

And somehow, Jonas’ bittersweet return is connected to it all.

An Interview with Tyffani Clark Kemp

If you could describe yourself in only 5 words, what words would you use?

Ambitious, organized, silly, quiet, teachable.

Tell us about Bittersweet-how was it different telling a YA story?

Well, I am an adult, so when I write for adults I think “How would I, if I were this character, solve or react to this problem?” Writing YA I had to think, “How would I, as a teenager, solve or react to this problem?” For teenagers, there are so many hormones and feelings running through them that their responses are so different from an adult’s. Trying to remember what that was like wasn’t the easiest.

Who is your favorite character from Bittersweet? Why?

I think Shock is probably my favorite character, followed closely by Solamine. I think they are my favorites because I know what’s in their background and I know what’s in their future and they kind of need the love. *insert evil laugh here*

Where did you get the idea for Bittersweet?

I wrote a short story for my fiance a long time ago. In it, Lirabel was first born. I’ve had the idea in my head for a long time. What would life be like for these hybrid humans? How would they be different from humans or even their own alien race? At that time, I wasn’t sure if they were aliens or people created in a lab. It was just something that I’ve kept coming back to for a long time and finally decided to focus on.

What’s coming next for you?

I have a time travel story coming in 2017 called The Canyon Edict. I’m also working on a dark romance right now and of course the second book in The Kaveesh series, Sanguine, is on the roster for this next year.

About the Author-
Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.
