Ignite Release Blog Tour: An Interview with Jenna Terese!

I am so incredibly excited to welcome you all here today to celebrate the release of my wonderful friend, Jenna’s debut! She’s such an amazing woman and an amazing writer and I have the absolute pleasure of interviewing her today about her book, her life and her writing process! Let’s get into it.

But before we do, check out the awesome book trailer 🙂

CRH: First of all, thank you for coming on the blog, Jenna! It’s such a pleasure to have you here. To start off, can you tell us three things we might not know about you? 

JT: I only like fries with nacho cheese, I will take a photo of EVERY pretty sunset I see, and I have a plant named after a book character. Super random things here. XD

Haha, I love these facts! What inspired you to write this novel?

The idea was sort of sparked by an image stuck in my head from a movie trailer and another superhero novel I tried to write but didn’t go anywhere. I become intrigued by the idea of superpowers being more common in our world, but not thought of as positively like we do.

That’s a really fascinating starting point, thanks for sharing that! What parts of this novel are drawn from your personal experience?

A lot of Scarlett’s journey about accepting all of who she is instead of letting society and pressure from others tell her whether her God-given gifts are worth keeping or not come from some of my own learning experiences. As someone with social anxiety and who is generally pretty self-conscious, it can be easy to give in to peer pressure and worry about how people see me. But all that matters is how God sees me, and if He’s given me a feature, a trait, a passion, or a gift for a purpose, there’s no reason to hide it.

STOP THE RAIN Release Blog Tour: An Interview with Kassie Angle!

Hey, my lovely people! First off, apologies for being MIA the last few weeks. I meant to keep posting during November, but life was like “No way”. It’s NaNoWriMo and I’m having a blast with my novel (though I’m so far behind its not even funny) and I’m also currently on holidays with my family, visiting my grandfather. It’s so nice to be out of the freezing cold of my hometown and in a warm, semi-coastal environment. I’ve been hanging out with my dog, knitting, reading and writing! The life, am I right? So I also decided to take a bit of a break from my blog for the rest of my month. I’ve still got a few things I want to post, so I won’t be completely absent, but I just need a little rest from the pressure of constantly blogging. You guys are so nice and understanding, so I’m sure you’ll be fine.

But anyway today we’ve been blessed with an interview with Kassie Angle! Kassie’s new release Stop The Rain, is releasing tomorrow and I’m so excited! So as part of the blog tour, I’ll be posting an interview today and a review tomorrow! Let’s get into it!

Chelsea R.H.: What are three things we don’t know about you?

Kassie Angle: My brother and I once auditioned for America’s Got Talent, I prefer riding bareback over any kind of saddle and have still never been thrown from a horse, and I once spent a layover in Germany watching WWII movies. 😇

Writer Humour Redbubble Collection Release Day!

Hey guys! So today is the release day for Jenna Terese’s new Redbubble Writer Humour Collection!

This is a great day because not only does her merch look awesome and hilarious, but also because Jen is one of my dearest writing/blogging/awesome friends and she’s honestly doing a brilliant job getting her name out there, becoming a fantastic entrepreneur, and writing amazing and heartfelt books. I can’t wait till the day I can buy a hard copy of one of her novels and put it on my shelf.

But anyway, Jen’s books are not what we’re here to talk about today. Instead, we’re going to talk about her latest Redbubble merch collection, which is premiering today, 14 October 2020.

And it looks so great!

She’s got a whole range of items for sale, from iPhone and iPad cases, to shirts, hoodies, and coasters, to journals, laptop skins, water bottles and masks. The prices are really good and the collection quotes are 100% accurate.

So how about I stop babbling on about how great it is, and show you some pictures instead? There’s heaps of designs and products, but because we’d be here all day if I talked about all of them, I’m just going to highlight five of my favourites for you.

Somewhere Between Torture and Fun

Link leads to Redbubble shop

This is just so true. One famous author (Ernest Hemingway, usually) said, “Writing is easy. All you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed.” And that’s exactly it! Writers probably sound like they hate their jobs, but do they really? Not at all, we’re having the time of our lives.

Don’t Ask Me What My Book is About

“Yes, I’m a Writer. No don’t ask me what my book is about because I may have a panic attack.” Telling non-writerly people about my writing is honestly one of the most nerve-wracking things I ever have to do it. It is the worst. Hopefully, carrying this bag around will ward off the unfortunate questions?

90% Trying to Describe Someone Eating a Donut

This little notebook sums up the majority of my frustrations. Why is this so true? Why is 90% of my time taken up with “How can I write this completely unnecessary and, frankly, boring snippet better?”

Buy this notebook so you know that you’re not alone!

Writers Are Known For…

This one is a wall print, which means that you can hang it over your desk and stare up at it mournfully, both celebrating and bemoaning the accuracy of it. In fact, look at me right now, fangirling over writer merch when I should actually be writing…

I Didn’t See That Coming!

I left this one to last because it is absolutely my favourite. I’m a solid plotter and I love to know where things are going, but inevitably I ditch my outline halfway through when the plot throws a surprise up in my face. And I usually just go with it. I love being surprised by my own writing!

And so that’s that, guys! Please hop on over to Jenna’s Redbubble shop. I only showed you five of her designs here today, but she’s got 10+ in her new collection alone, and there’s plenty of cool things to discover in her other collections. You can also find her on her Website, her Instagram, and her Pinterest! She’s a great author, blogger and general human being and she deserves your support 😀
