Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Woo hoo!
On this tour, you’ll find out the behind-the-scenes journey with this story, my decision to go with a small press, weaving mythology into writing, writing craft tidbits exemplified with a unique teaser. Lots of good stuff. And don’t forget the incredible prize packages!
When Bianca and Melvin brave the jungle to rescue their grandfather, they stumble upon the ancient Maya city of Etza, where the people haven’t aged in 2,000 years. They must learn to work together as they face loincloth-wearing skeletons from the underworld, a backstabbing princess, and an ancient prophecy that says in three days the city will be destroyed.
No problem. They’ll find Zeb and zip right out of there. The fact that a crazy king wants to serve Bianca up to the gods as an appetizer is just a minor technicality. But this ancient evil dude has finally met his match.

Thanks everyone! 🙂
Congrats on your releases! Totally cool that you write MG and YA – me too. And I’m struggling with one on the edge, which way do I push it over?!
The place I’d love to visit is China. I want to row a boat between all those vertical rocks coming out of the ocean.
So excited for this tour–I really enjoyed this book. LOVE the adventure and the creativity.

Not sure if this is where I’m supposed to comment, but I’d like to visit Japan someday.
That said, congratulations on your launch!
This book looks awesome! Good luck!
I’d like to visit Egypt someday when there’s less furor. Also, Ireland.
Laura–Thanks for including me on your tour! Congrats again on the book publication!!
I’m looking forward to the tour. 🙂
Love all the subjects in this blog tour! And I have to tell you, I LOVE the new cover of Heart of an Assassin, and how it matches with the first book. The Eiffel tower reflected in the sunglasses, and now, what’s that, the Parthenon maybe???
Wishing you all the best. I loved your comments about facing your fears. I was attacked by carpenter bees once. I had disturbed their home in an old abandoned telephone pole on the ground. Yikes! Using what you know works for me. I will remember my own experience next time I’m writing about fear. Thanks for the reminder at the Bookshelf Muse blog post.
Wow Laura, I’m coveting over here. Love your blog site. Found you on the Bookshelf Muse. Love them too.
Your ask if there is one place I would most like to visit. I would like to visit England because my Grandparents were from there. Enjoy the brit accent, too.
Please keep up the good work. Us writer ‘want to be’s’ need sites like these.
Thank you, Trula
I’d love to visit France!
Awesome Laura. Not sure how I missed this the day it came out. You know my answer-China.
Congrats on the new release!
Congrats on your new release. Cool contest too! So many places I want to see…Russia, especially the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg; Italy, especially Florence; Salzburg, Austria for all the Mozart and VonTrapp sites.
I’d love to visit South Korea some day 😀
