BOOK BLITZ & BLOG TOUR: Starr Fall

Dear Alison and friends, 

This week you are in for a treat. (Well, I hope it's a treat.) We've had three posts in three days, but for excellent reasons. Alison needed to have a dance party to celebrate her new Work in Progress and aside from the fact that everyday should be reason for a dance party, I'm participating in a Book Blitz and Blog Tour for Starr Fall in anticipation of the upcoming release of Starr Gone, Book Three of my young adult series. In case you missed the cover reveal, here's the post. 

So, over the next two weeks, a load of different blogs are hosting me. I've written some cool posts about Starr Fall, shared details about the characters, created Character Pinterest boards, and shared new excerpts, so be sure to follow along with the Blog Tour and comment. Plus there's a giveaway for a $10 Amazon Gift Card... 



Let's get the Starr Fall Book Blitz rolling!


One Starr falls, and a killer rises.
Book Cover

STARR FALL
Kim Briggs
Series: Starr Fall, Book 1
Genre:†Young Adult, YA Contemporary, YA Romance
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: November 4, 2016
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishopís the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. Sheís the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasnít so damn likable. But donít worry, sheís not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides sheís not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starríll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person sheíd expectóor even wantó to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster Highís social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isnít the Goth loner he pretends to be, heís a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starrís hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
Abandon whatever you are doing and read this book! I truly enjoyed it. It's such a quick paced book. You could easily read five or six chapters without realizing how much time has passed! The ending left me wanting more!

About†Kim Briggs

Author Pic
Kim Briggs once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17-year-old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But itís not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she canít escape. And Then He is available through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall released November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017 and Starr Gone in June 2017. Her novella, Avalanche is part of the Valentine Kisses Anthology and released February 14, 2017.
When sheís not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snowdrifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. Sheís careful to avoid trees.

School Visit Recap: Assemblies to Workshops, and the CONVERSATIONS in between

Dear Kim (and friends),

This morning I put away my rainbow superhero mask, gold top hat, and banana-on-a-stick. Few things are sadder than closing your banana-on-a-stick into a dark closet. But, I guess it will rise again next month for my next school visit.

Oh, you thought my collection was somehow Halloween related? No, no. Just part of the workshop portion of my school visits. For the past two weeks I had the privilege of speaking to, and then with, students from one of our nearby districts.



Dwight Smith, the founder of My Special Word, joined me for the assembly portion of the event. We were able to share with the children Dwight's vision for the program, as well as my process for writing the books for him.

There was music. Lots of it.
Some singing. (Would you expect any less?)
And shouting! (Mostly the kids, but I got a few words in too.)



We met with over 800 kids during the assemblies and got a sense for how the school district planned to use My Special Word. I'll say,

Workshop for Educators: The Art and Design of a Picture Book

Dear Kim,

Saturday, March 25th at the University of Scranton, a small group of children's book writers will meet with educators to discuss mentor texts, writing for children, and the power of the picture book.

What am I saying? You already know this. You'll be there presenting with Linda Oatman High. Your session about the creation of character is sure to be lively with you and Linda at the helm.


I wish I could see the two of you together, but I will be next door talking about my favorite artistic form: the Picture Book with one of my favorite picture book creators, Lindsay Barrett George.

Lindsay and I met yesterday to finalize our talk. Do you even want to guess the number of times I shouted, "I know the perfect picture book for that!" when Lindsay shared design elements like gutters, endpapers, or typography? It was a lot. I was very interruptive...

Just like David Ezra Stein's INTERRUPTING CHICKEN  (I couldn't resist one more interrupting title.)

We used M…
