Book Blitz: AFTERPARTY by Ann Stampler + Giveaway!

I've yet to post my review for this book but I am so glad to be able to participate in this book blitz! Ann is an absolutely wonderful writer and I loved Where It Began, and now Afterparty is here!

I was able to ask Ann a This or That question for this blitz. Wanna know what it is and what her answer was? Scroll down!

This Or That with Ann Redisch Stampler

Question: Action or Drama?

Oh dear, can’t I have both? Because plot and feeling are both necessary elements. Because action without drama can get kind of tedious. And while I suppose you could have drama if you emoted enough while sitting in a chair, at least a tiny bit of action is always a good thing.

What do you think? I'm not really a drama kind of person, but what Ann said makes sense. It's all in the plot and the feeling!


About Afterparty:

A toxic friendship takes a dangerous turn in this riveting novel from the author of Where It Began.

Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother—whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma isn’t.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, a bash where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...

About the author:

Ann Stampler was the mild mannered author of literary picture books when she broke out, tore off her tasteful string of pearls, and started writing edgy, contemporary young adult novels set in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and writer’s-helper rescue dog – without whose compelling distraction she would have no doubt penned dozens of novels by now.
