Blog Tour: Bloodcraft - Dream Cast + Giveaway

Title: Bloodcraft (Bloodspell #2)
Author: Amalie Howard
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Kobo | Barnes & Noble
Publication Date: December 15, 2015

All magic has its price, and no one knows that better than Victoria Warrick. Gifted with a centuries-old blood curse, Tori has finally learned to master her blood's demands and has emerged triumphant with Christian Devereux, a vampire overlord, at her side.

But the worst is yet to come...

In the infamous City of Lights, home to both the Witch Clans and the Vampire Council, Tori enrolls at the exclusive Belles Fontaines school in Paris, where she is faced with a devastating choice: choose Christian and be an outcast, or choose the coven and secure her place with the witches.

When the fate of the supernatural world is targeted by a sinister new threat, Christian and Victoria must unite their two warring species to defeat it. Their bond will be tested, twisted, and sorely weakened, and Tori will find herself in uncharted territory - a dangerous place to be when her blood's magic has its own dark agenda.

But to save them all, she may have no choice but to invoke its deadly power.

Dream Cast: Lena and Angie
I've had the dream cast of the main characters in my head for a while ever since I wrote Bloodspell four years ago. However, since BLOODCRAFT is releasing a few years later, I had to go re-cast most of them because of the age of the actors. These are teenagers, after all. I've chosen two for each - which are your favorites?

LENA
Amber Heard or Nicola Peltz
Likes: I like power. Being on top. Winners.
Dislikes: People.
Favorite quote: Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

ANGIE
Hailee Steinfeld or Maia Mitchell
Likes: My favorite time of year is Fall. I live in Maine where all the colors are so beautiful when the leaves turn. It's unbelievably gorgeous. I love having a good meal in good company with great conversation. Music keeps me sane. I like helping people who deserve it. I love people who are kind and make the effort to make the world a better place.
Dislikes: Violence. People who take advantage of other people. Liars.
Favorite quote: Be the change you expect to see in the world.

Author Bio

AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island (Trinidad & Tobago) where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn't entirely convinced which takes more guts.

An aspiring writer from a young age, Amalie's poem "The Candle," written at age twelve, was published in a University of Warwick journal. At fifteen, she was a recipient of a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition). A Colby College graduate, she completed simultaneous Honors Theses in both French and International Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa. At Colby, she was cited for research and criticism in Raffael Scheck's article, "German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic," and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. She also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge (A-levels) as well as a certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, marketing representative, teen speaker and global sales executive.

She is the author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid's INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children. She is represented by the Liza Royce Agency and is a member of SCBWI.
