Blog Tour + #Giveaway: Ava: A Hart Twins Novel by Charyse Allan @Chaaryse4 @yaboundtourspr



Ava: A Hart Twins Novel
by Charyse Allan
Genre: YA Romance/Suspense
Release Date: January 29th 2019

Summary:

Ava has everything planned, as usual. Finish senior year at the top of her class, perform her best dance routine at the dance concert, and have the greatest prom ever. But her best friend, Cade, has other ideas. He convinces Ava to abandon her rigid schedule and enjoy her last year of high school. After letting her hair down for one amazing night and exchanging a steamy kiss with Cade, she's ready to explore this carefree side of herself, until someone plays a cruel joke on her.
 
Humiliated and hurt, Ava retreats into her carefully constructed box, hoping everything will go back to normal. But it doesn't. What she thought was a prank has turned out to be so much more, and she doesn't even know the half of it. Determined to handle the situation herself, Ava hides her true feelings from her friends and her new love interest, but is quickly pushed past her breaking point.
 
The survival of a sickening betrayal, a broken heart, and a perilous attack mean very little when lost in a game you don’t even know you’re playing.

Interview with Author Charyse Allan


As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

Is Goku an acceptable option? I’d take him as a mascot any day J (huge DBZ nerd here). If we’re sticking with animals, penguins are my spirit animals for no real reason other than their pure cuteness.

How many hours a day do you put into your writing?

I try to get in at least an hour or two of writing every day, no matter whether it’s a project I’m working on or just brainstorming. And if I can’t get around to writing, I read whatever I can get my hands on.

Do you read your book reviews? If yes, do they affect what you write in the future?

I do read them! I take constructive criticism very seriously and can say that my writing has grown a great deal over the years because of it. Sure, there are some that aren’t very helpful, but the reading and writing community is usually a loving one.

Do you leave hidden messages in your books that only a few people will find? 

Leaving little mystery nuggets makes writing even more fun than it already is. They range from smack you in the face obvious, to some deep hidden truths.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Ava: A Hart Twins Novel?

Ava likes everything neat and tidy. She likes her schedules, her good grades, ultimately her control. She’s the most un-teenagey teen you’ll ever meet.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next books or what you have planned for the future?

There are two companion books after Ava that are part of the Hart Twins stories, maybe even more in the future ;) Ava’s twin sister, Mia gets to tell her story, and then their brother Kai gets the chance to tell his. I’m also working on two adult standalones—one a contemporary suspense, the other a contemporary romance.

Do you allow yourself a certain number of hours to write or do you write as long as the words come?

When working on a novel I only like to write as long as the words come, otherwise it’s forced and no fun.

Do you have a certain number of words or pages you write per day?

Since I’m a current student, I have to meet lots of word counts throughout the week so I try not to drag this rule into my writing. I like to go with the flow and see what ends up on paper. A lot of my writing is done in a notebook first, so I don’t even know the count until I’ve gotten the time to type it up.

What inspires you to write?

The life stories of those around me inspire me. Without even meaning to, I’ve realized that 90% of my stories originate in one of my friend’s or family member’s life.


Would you rather

Read fiction or non-fiction?
Fiction—it’s nice to step away from reality for a bit and step into a world where anything is possible.

Read series or stand-alone?
I really enjoy companion novels, where we get to stick in the same world with the same characters, but getting to see different perspectives of leading characters.

Read Science fiction or horror?
Science fiction. I used to do horror… something about having kid has made it impossible to enjoy it anymore.

Read the book or watch the movie?
Read the book!! Letting your imagination cook images up is way more fun than letting someone else decide what everything else is supposed to look like in any fantastical book world.

Read an ebook or paperback?
Paperback! I’m sure lots of people say it, but there’s just something about being able to feel the pages, flip back and forth easily, and there’s nothing like that new book smell!

Be trapped alone for one month in a library with no computer or a room with a computer and Wi-Fi only?
In a library with no computer! The things I could learn with an uninterrupted month of reading! This is assuming my four kids wouldn’t be stranded in the library with me LOL.

Do a cross-country book store tour or blog tour online?
It has been my dream since I started writing to do a cross-country bookstore tour. Simply the ability to sit in a bunch of different bookstores to show them support would be amazing.
