Sentinel Tour ~ Half-Blood Day


*squeeee* Time for my stop on the Sentinel tour! 
The book I'm spotlighting is Half-Blood, the book where it all began...
It must say that I am sad that this series is coming to an end but I'm damn excited to be a part of this tour.
Also don't forget to answer the totally awesome giveaway below!






The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals--well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.








# 1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout Lives in West Virginia. 

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true. 

Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.

She is the author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press), the Lux Series (Entangled Teen), Don't Look Back (Disney/Hyperion) and a yet untitled novel (Disney/Hyperion), and new YA paranormal series with Harlequin Teen. 

Jennifer also writes New Adult and Adult romance under the pen name J. Lynn. The Gamble Brothers Series (Tempting the Best Man/Tempting the Player) and Wait for You. Under her pen name, she is published with Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.





As an optional thing to add I decided to feature the author interview I did with Jennifer last February.
Enjoy!


1. What was one of the most surprising (bad or good) things you learned in creating your books?

The good thing that I've learned is how caught up I can get in my characters. Sometimes they feel like real people. Another surprising aspect that's not necessary bad, but something an author can't control, is how people perceive your books. You never know what someone is going to take away from it.


2. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I CANNOT write in a room full of people or really in a room with anyone in it. I'm too easily distracted, so I doubt that I'd ever go to a writing retreat.


3. Which author would you love to co-author a book with someday?

Oh, wow. There are too many to pick from. A few would be Rachel Vincent, Jana Oliver, Jeri Smith Ready, etc.


4. What three books would you recommend people to read?

Losing It by Cora Carmack, Demon Trappers series from Jana Olivier, and Soul Screamers Series from Rachel Vincent. 


5. What are some of your current or future bookish projects that you can share with us?

I have a NA novel coming out on March 4th 2013 called Wait for You that I'm very excited about and there is a YA paranormal series that I hope I can share info on soon.


Jennifer, thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and I'm looking forward to your upcoming books! :D

Thanks for having me!

I also have this mini interview from JLA to share with you all:

For JLA – Half-Blood was your first published book.  Does it hold a special place for you or do you wish you could have a chance to re-write it?  Half-Blood definitely holds a special place for me, and I wouldn’t want to re-write it.  I’m happy with the book.

For Leon – You defended Alex and advocated for her to stay and be trained.  If you’d know she was gonna be such a pain in your ass, would have do that again.  Why?  Oh yeah, Alex needed to be trained, but I would have advocated for an attitude adjustment along with the training.

For Aiden – That day that Alex meets Seth for the first time, did you notice anything then that could have warned you of what was to come? Everything about him warned me.

For Seth -  Did you know that Alex was not impressed with your name when she met you?  She thought you should have a more Greek name like Apollo or something.  Turn around is fair play.  Your thoughts on her name?  She’s named after a boy.







Spencer Hill Press is giving away a $200 gift card to Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Book Depository or any indie bookstore of the winner's choice to not only stock up on amazing books, but to perhaps buy a Nook HD or Kindle Fire.
