Cover Reveal: Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

I am revealing to you all K.A. Tucker’s BURYING WATER! BURYING WATER is a New Adult Romantic Suspense novel scheduled for release October 7th! This book will blow you away. Get. Ready.

But first I’d like to share the blurb:

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

TEASERS: HOW EXCITED I AM FOR UGLY LOVE BY COLLEEN HOOVER!

20140722-184443-67483241.jpg

Chyna’s Note: Sup, guys! How are ya’ll doing? I wanted to share you a few teasers I got from Colleen Hoover’s facebook page. It’s totally fabulous, I’ve been reading loads of ARC reviews for Ugly Love and they all sound so amazing. My favourite review would be Aestos’s Ugly Love review. She really expressed it beautifully how we should be all excited for Colleen Hoover next release, they all said it’s her best work. I can’t even imagine. After reading Slammed, Point of Retreat, This Girl, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cinderella and Maybe Someday, I was hesitant on whether this next book can ever compare to her older books. I mean, they were that good. It’s incredibly difficult to write best-selling novels every freaking year, it’s not feasible but Colleen Hoover deems herself worthy. She’s amazing! I hate contemporaries, but Colleen Hoover is the best author that has ever existed when it comes to writing unique love stories that’ll just make you bleed, shatter and sink.

My Colleen Hoover Book Reviews: WARNING SOME WERE WRITTEN AND POSTED YEARS/MONTHS AGO SO THE FORMAT IS IFFY

  1. Slammed
  2. Point of Retreat

Bookish thoughts: When authors read negative reviews and reply back

Bookishthoughts

I’ve had one author who read my negative review and she took it as constructive criticism. I appreciated her effort to try and understand what led me to dislike her book. I’ve also had authors who inquire for a review, but when they get my feedback, they agape and also become pissed off (mortified). Please take this professionally, ladies and gentlemen. I aim for honesty and for my readers to smile when they finish a book. I will never lie in my reviews.

I once requested a review copy/arc from an author, but I wasn’t able to enjoy her book. I contacted her, warning her before hand that she’ll be receiving a negative feedback, but I received no reply. I wanted to ask her about my feedback. It was awfully rude of her not to answer me back, just because it wasn’t a good response doesn’t mean she should snob me or think highly of herself by not at all having to continue our conversation/agreement. I might be too quick to judge, though. I don’t normally not get a response back from the author who sent me the review copy. Whether it’s negative or positive, I always send an email and get a response in a day or 2.

Sometimes I wish I could ask the author “before I get started, I’d like to know what you think I’ll hate in your book.” would that be too harsh or frank?

When authors respond negatively to your negative review, don’t reply back unless you are positively sure that your review is constructive. Ask your friends online if your review was written professionally and that it wasn’t written directly to stab the author/writer. You can also email her before hand that she’ll be receiving a negative review. Remember that you have the right to publish it or not. The author doesn’t have a say in it. Sometimes writers will force you to take down your negative review in order for them to have more readers buying their books.

If ever you are still conflicted how to respond to an author when she replies to your negative review. Pause first and respond. Do not react. You must pause and respond. 

If you need help or advice you can come to me. You are always welcome.
