Blog Tour- CONTROL by @qsteph With An Excerpt & #Giveaway! #ownvoices @RockstarBkTours 

Jaime | 12:00 AM | Please comment!

 


I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the CONTROL by Stephanie Guerilus Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

 

About the Book:

Title: CONTROL

Author: Stephanie Guerilus

Pub. Date: October 2, 2018

Publisher: Stephanie Guerilus

Formats: Paperback, eBook

Pages: 297

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Kindle

Read for FREE with a Kindle Unlimited Membership!

Control, whose title is lifted from the iconic Janet Jackson song, embodies its name. Theresa Marie Jenkins is a 17-year-old who thinks she knows it all. As the saying goes, a hard head makes for a soft ass and Reesa learns the hard way that she doesn’t really know much about life.

 

Reesa quickly becomes an It girl after speaking up at a Black Lives Matter protest but her activism gets in the way of her career. She wants to be the next pop diva on the charts. For that to happen, Reesa will have to be packaged; smile and wave as though she’s at a beauty pageant. She’ll have to give control to advisers who want her to sing on cue, tap dance on command, no throwing shoes at parties and keeping her mouth shut on the culture. If only Reesa had just sat there and ate her food.

 

Control is a novel that addresses the political climate, #MeToo, identity and what it means when you are a young woman of color who the world doesn’t automatically think to protect.

 

Excerpt:

2.

“Theresa Marie Jenkins!” Momma hollered my government name.

I picked up my high heeled boot and stomped down the stairs. Momma stood at the base, arms folded across her chest. Her brown eyes, which matched the hue of her swept back ponytail, locked in on me.

“I’m trying to make it into heaven and you’re making me late for church,” she said in exasperation.

Momma’s polished manicured nails fell to her wayside and just shook her head.

“I’ll sneak through the pearly gates and write Melissa Ann Jenkins in that big book,” I promised with a big ‘ol smile.

I even reached for her pinky and intertwined the limb with mine to make the vow official. Her pouty lips creased.

“What am I gonna do with you, Reesa?”

“An extra $100 in my allowance would be nice.”

“You’re gonna be a whole grown woman next year and you’re still hitting me up for money.”

“You say that as if you’re gonna let me do whatever I want even when I turn 18.”

Momma just smirked, turning on her black heel to approach the foyer closet and retrieve her wool coat.

“If my Momma could see me now,” Momma said with a wistful smile. “She used to be yelling at me to get ready.”

Momma slowly breathed in and out, a bit of mist filling her eyes as sadness lingered on her brown face.

“Your Big Momma Ruthie always said I’d turn into her one of these days,” she said with a faint breath.

I leaned in to wrap my arms around her. She held me back and then playfully pushed me back with the palm of her hands.

“Great moment but we’ve still got to haul our butts out of here,” Momma said, reaching for the front door handle.

I followed Momma outside, clutching onto my Burberry jacket as the risk wind blew. The gust caused my curls to swirl. I pushed the ringlets behind my diamond studded ears and then raised a hand to wave hi to our neighbor’s 17-year-old son. He was the starter kit of the kind of white boy who shopped at Target: mop of blonde hair coiffed into a clean cut buzz, dressed in khaki and a blue sweater.

“Gregory’s crushing on you,” Momma said, driving her black Mercedes into the barren street.

Gregory was still waving at us as she peeled away, driving towards the green light and pushing her foot on the pedal to turn.

“Opinionated Aries are his kink,” I smacked my lips. “Especially black ones.”

My cheeks rose.

“You know the type,” I teased.

Momma’s long lashes just batted.

“Reesa, don’t even start.”

“I can’t bring up the fact that you like white boys?”

“I prefer men.”

“Who ain’t shit.”

Her brows arched.

“My skin could use some exfoliating,” Momma began, her fingernails tapping on the steering wheel. “Your tears are just as good as any lotion.”

I frowned.

“You don’t want this smoke.”

“It’s not as if I haven’t been burned before.”

A scowl formed around her mouth.

“I just think it’s funny how these cops keep getting away with killing Black people for no reason and my own father doesn’t even care,” I said through gritted teeth.

We sat in silence for the next few minutes as Momma just drove. My head leaned back into the leather seating during that time.

“He cares more about being a politician and not even decent at that,” I grumbled of Sen. Ben Chandler. He served as the junior United States senator from Georgia.

“Ben’s white,” Momma said in resignation, pulling into the Philadelphia Baptist Tabernacle parking lot. A flood of cars were navigating the space that housed the Victorian built megachurch.

“We can talk to Rev. Daniels after the service,” she offered.

I cleared my throat.

“Thoughts and prayers aren’t enough,” I stated matter of fact.

About The Book:

Sixteen-year-old Iduna harbors a dark secret. On the surface, she is an Arendellian village girl, an aspiring inventor, and the best friend of Prince Agnarr, but she is also secretly Northuldra.

Ever since the day the forest fell, Arendellians have despised and distrusted Northuldra with a vengeance. No matter that the Northuldra-along with some of Arendelle's own-have been trapped in the Enchanted Forest behind an impenetrable wall of mist since the day of the battle.

Iduna doesn't know why the mist refuses to part, or why it descended to begin with. The only clear thing is that she must keep her identity from everyone, even Agnarr. Her life depends on it.

Fortunately for her, Agnarr doesn't know that Iduna is the Northuldra girl he saw seemingly flying on a gust of wind all those years ago, the day of the celebration turned disaster. The day Agnarr lost his father, the king. The day Agnarr himself almost died.

What Agnarr does know is that Iduna is a true ally in the face of his royal responsibilities and the expectations of an overbearing council and a well-meaning regent who will rule in Agnarr's place until he turns twenty-one and assumes the Arendellian throne.

As Iduna and Agnarr grow ever closer, however, friendship is no longer enough. If only falling for each other didn't mean risking their futures: Iduna's as a hidden-in-plain-sight citizen of Arendelle, and Agnarr's as imminent king.

But for a chance at true love, the risk might be worth taking.

About The Book:


From the New York Times bestselling author of Love & Gelato comes a Mamma Mia–inspired tale about a teen girl finding romance while trying to connect with her absent father in beautiful Santorini, Greece.

Liv Varanakis doesn’t have a lot of fond memories of her father, which makes sense—he fled to Greece when she was only eight. What Liv does remember, though, is their shared love for Greek myths and the lost city of Atlantis. So when Liv suddenly receives a postcard from her father explaining that National Geographic is funding a documentary about his theories on Atlantis—and will she fly out to Greece and help?—Liv jumps at the opportunity.

But when she arrives to gorgeous Santorini, things are a little…awkward. There are so many questions, so many emotions that flood to the surface after seeing her father for the first time in years. And yet Liv doesn’t want their past to get in the way of a possible reconciliation. She also definitely doesn’t want Theo—her father’s charismatic so-called “protégé”—to witness her struggle.

And that means diving into all that Santorini has to offer—the beautiful sunsets, the turquoise water, the hidden caves, and the delicious cuisine. But not everything on the Greek island is as perfect as it seems. Because as Liv slowly begins to discover, her father may not have invited her to Greece for Atlantis, but for something much more important. 



This Abacus tour runs from November 9th-13th & 16th-20th, will have one or two stops a day on a Blog or Instagram and consist of reviews, interviews, pre made guest posts, excerpts, & spotlights. eBooks Only.

About The Book:


'Incredibly insightful, funny and poignant' Helen Sedgwick

I get up. I go to work. I spend the whole day waiting for the words on my screen to make sense. In the commuter broth of the carriage home, tears run in hot lines to my jaw and for a minute or so, I let them.

Nothing has turned out quite how Rhona Beech thought: she's been swapping one so-so job for another on an annual basis . . . and now her nine-year relationship has ended abruptly. When her lukewarm efforts to adjust to the changes in her life are thrown entirely up in the air by some unwelcome news, Rhona has to think again.

Her sardonic, funny, poignant attempts to find an answer to the questions she's facing are helped by a cast of friends, strangers and trained professionals. Funny and tender, Keep Walking, Rhona Beech is a beautifully written and brilliantly observant satire on relationships, friendship and life

Previously published as Head for the Edge, Keep Walking by Cargo Publishing.

With his home destroyed and family gone, 16-year-old Thatcher Renley has no one left to turn to. And when he’s mistaken for a Tibran soldier and banished to a wartime prison camp, Thatcher knows his only hope for freedom lies in appealing to Queen Jenna directly.
But getting out of the prison camp might be the least of his worries— especially after he stumbles across a feral dragon locked in an iron cell.

As far as dragons go, Fornax is a lost cause. The battle that killed his rider also left him blind and too aggressive for any knight to control. But Thatcher can’t deny feeling drawn to the beast.

And with a bloodthirsty Tibran witch threatening to rekindle the chaos of war, everyone’s time may be running out.

"For centuries, humans have consumed information through their eyes and our ears," said Dr. Backbridge. "Here is my prediction. In the not-too-distant future, we are going to ingest information.

Before long, Jake is the smartest kid in the universe. But the pills haven't been tested yet. And when word gets out about this new genius, people want him. The government. The mega corporations. Not all of them are good people! Can Jake navigate all the ins and outs of his newfound geniusdom (not to mention the ins and outs of middle school!) AND use his smarts to figure out how to save his school? (Hint-it will take someone smart enough to decipher an almost forgotten pirate legend!)
