First Annual #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop! badge


Today we're featuring one of the blogs in this event.



Blog: Uniquely Maladjusted But Fun



Uniquely Maladjusted But Fun blog logo #atozchallenge


Does your blog support diverse books?
The diverse book movement recognizes all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities. https://diversebooks.org
Yes!

Are you willing to include debut authors?

Yes! Though this blog doesn't do many book posts.

And yet you volunteered to help out during this event?

Yeah. I know two of the authors in it. You and JR. So it wasn't like I was going to say no and miss the fun.

Why do you take part in the A to Z Challenge?

I take part in the A to Z Challenge because it gives my blog some focus, it's a fun event to take part in, and... oh right, I'm friends with two of the team members.

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I wanted an online outlet that wasn't just social media. A place that was more for me.

What goal do you or your blog hope to accomplish this year?

Two of my fellow writers and I started writing a book together. I hope we can finish it this year because it's such a fun project.

As a reader, what most motivates you to buy a new book to read?

A great cover gets me to pick it up, and reading the back and first few pages help me decide if I'll buy it. A sale price or a suggestion from a friend are also big influences.

Week Three #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop!

First Annual #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop!


First Annual #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop! badge


Today's featured book and author:

Twisted Tales


Deborah A Stansil Author Image #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop! Author Name: Deborah A Stansil
Age category: Adult
Genre: Horror

Brief description:
Twisted Tales is a collection of twenty-seven short horror stories. Ranging from crazed stalkers, killers, dealing with the Devil and everything in between, this collection shows the darker side of human nature in all its black glory. Journey through the twisted minds of the central characters as they make their choices, and watch their lives spiral out of control. Hate them, empathise with them, and stay on your guard. There’s a dark streak in all of us just waiting to come out.

Twisted Tales a #MustRead on the #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop!

Why did you take part in the A to Z Challenge the year that your book was "given life"?

I did it for the first time the year before and I loved it and I really wanted to get my fiction out there. Twisted Tales was my first book!

Why did you start blogging?

I wanted to get back into writing for an audience. It was only ever going to be a short term thing, but I fell in love with it, and here I am, four years later.

Do you have any other books coming out soon?

I have a new novel coming out this year hopefully

What other books do you have available?

Twisted Tales 2, Twisted Tales 3, The Joker, The Mirror, The Asylum Tour, Lacey Patrick and the Wizard of Darkness, eBook Like a Boss, Start Your Blog Like a Boss, Optimise Your Blog Posts Like a Boss, Parodies and Piss Takes.

#WriteTip

Just write. A first draft is just that. Let your words flow and go where your mind takes you without focusing on perfection. Perfection comes much later.

Where did the idea for this book come from, other than the alphabet and the challenge?

Partly from observation of human nature, partly from my own twisted imagination ;)

What writing goal do you hope to accomplish this year?

I want to finish up the novel I'm currently working on and write a new short story collection. I'd also like to write at least one more non-fiction book and get started on another novel.

EXCLUSIVE TOUR CONTENT: scene

That piece of writing caused more trouble for me than I could ever imagine. It cost me my friends, most of my family and of course my freedom. They feed me the platitudes – “it’s for my own good” “they want to help me”. None of them make up for my freedom. I’m not in prison, at least not in the traditional sense. I’m in an institution for the criminally insane. It’s no different. How can it not be prison when I’m not allowed to leave? I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me take you back to how it all happened. After all, it’s not like I’m short on time.

As a reader, what most motivates you to buy a new book to read?

The cover

What is one question or discussion topic which you would like the readers of this post to answer or remark on in the blog comments?

What, as a reader, most sends a shiver down your spine?

Why did you take part in the A to Z Challenge the year that your book was "given life"?

I love writing challenges, and the A to Z challenge is no exception! It was fun to have my readers pick their favorite short stories, and the favorite of all was turned into a novel.

Because of the A to Z Blog Challenge. Someone recommended it to me and I needed a blog to participate!

Do you have any other books coming out soon?

Soon! I have written another book stemming from that A to Z Challenge I'm in the process of editing.

I have a Choose Your Own Erotic Adventure and another novel like this one. See my website for synopses and details! https://jrvincente.wordpress.com/

#WriteTip

Write All The Words. Even if you don't think they're good words. Write them anyway and edit later.

Where did the idea for this book come from, other than the alphabet and the challenge?

I have always had these incomplete swirling in my head and I wanted to give them life, even if I couldn't (or wouldn't) dedicate a whole novel to them.

What writing goal do you hope to accomplish this year?

I hope to publish B is for Blackmail and write its sequel.

As a reader, what most motivates you to buy a new book to read?

A catchy title or synopsis.

What is one question or discussion topic which you would like the readers of this post to answer or remark on in the blog comments?

Favorite erotic groupings? (male male, male female, female female, something totally different?) Tell me!

Today's featured book and author:

Golden Rainbow


Author Name: Balaka Basu
Age category: Adult
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs

Brief description:
Golden Rainbow is an interesting collection of 26 memoirs written as short stories. These are not heroic tales but ordinary stories of ordinary people; nevertheless, they are thought-provoking. Some of them will make you laugh out loud while others may make you cry. The stories are rich in emotion, empathy and compassion.They are deeply profound. Reading the short stories is like a visit to Kolkata and typical Bengali life. You will connect with so many characters from your own real life but with different names. The anecdotes are not just stories but also a smart commentary on the various aspects of society. Easy to read, they will directly appeal to anyone fond of short stories. This book is not just a one-time read. It gets better with each reading.
