Welcome to... Spensations

Hey Everyone and welcome to the first Spensations post.


It's no surprise to anyone who knows me how much I adore Spencer Hill Press. They are to me one of the best, if not THE BEST, publishing company out there. Every publicist who works there is just amazing and totally puts up with me totally fangirling over them and their books. The authors are just so amazing and don't mind if you just email them to tell them how much you want to read their book. They do so much for me by sending me their uber awesome ARCs and swag so I wanted to do something for them and so came up with the idea to have a monthly feature to advertise their books/authors etc.
When thinking about starting this feature I had to come up with a name and I am so not a creative so asked for some suggestions from SHP authors. I took some of the suggestions and mixed them up to come up with Spensations. I really think it fits as I believe that every single SHP book is sensational... and then I had to have the tag line of 'the latest hot picks from Spencer Hill Press' because well they are all so hot.

A massive thank you to Lisa, who designed my crazy awesome banner. Isn't it amazing? I am just in love with it! Lisa is epically amazing.

Spensations will be kicking off in two weeks (April 1st) with an interview with Kimbery Ann Miller, author of upcoming Triangles and there will be an interview and giveaway every month.

Now because I love SHP books so much to welcome you all to Spensations I am giving away ONE Spencer Hill Press book that is already released. Here is some of the books you can choose from.

Giveaway is open internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to your country.
All you need to do is leave me a comment saying who you would like me to interview as part of the feature and which book you would choose if you won.
If you don't leave you email address you can't be entered.

I hope you are looking forward to Spensations

  1. I'd like to see Kate interviewed, so we can get to the bottom of what makes her mind tick and how the heck she copes with her daily to-do list. :D

  2. The feature is amazing! I do agree, SPH guys are wonderful and absolutely kind! And their authors are so, so lovely! I'd love if you could interview Rachel Harris!!!

    As for the books, mmm, I'm torn. Master of the Veil or Finn Finnegan?

  3. You should totally interview JLA & Emily White! Oh and I would like to win a copy of Deity by JLA, thanks for the chance!

  4. I'd love to see you interview Jen! And this is an amazing idea btw, Kay :)

    I would choose either Cursed or Pure :D

  5. Yeah, forgot my book choice. It'd have to be Pure to add to my collection. ;)

  6. Thanks, Kayleigh--and I might add that YOU are awesome and that's why I wanted to create your banner.

  7. This is so awesome! I would love a copy of one of Kate's books! I don't have any of those yet :( I would love to see an interview with Kate, too. She did one for my blog as a cover artist, but I want to hear her thoughts as an author!

  8. An interview with Kate with be awesome!! I would choose Betrayed :)

  9. This feature is a great idea! I can't wait to see what kind of posts we'll get to see as part of this. I would like to read an interview with Angela Townsend! And if I win I think I would prefer Minder because I haven't read that one yet and I did hear good things about it! My e-mail addres: lolabookreviews(at)gmail(dot)com

  11. I cant wait to read the interviews. It would be great to read the interviews from JLA, Michelle Pickett and Kelly Hashway :) I would choose Cursed or Elemental

    I think an interview with JLA or Kate Kaynak would be nifty. I would likely choose one of the books by either of them. My email is lebrbria(at)gmail(dot)com

  13. Kayleigh, thank you so much for all your support. I personally love working with SHP, they are awesome. We all appreciate you so much!

  17. You should interview JLA of course!! I love Jen and she is always so cool on interviews! ^__^
    I'd choose Elixir or Finn Finnegan, thank you for the giveaway.

  18. I also would like to see an interview with Michelle Pickett, author of PODs. It's a book that really has my interest. I love JLA, but I'd like to see some fresh faces from SHP interviewed. Now, which book would I like if I won....that's hard...I'd pick...Minder by Kate Kaynak. Thanks and I look forward to your SHP posts!


  20. I would love to read interview with JLA, Michelle Pickett and Kelly Hashway (Touch of Death). Since, I've recently finished Half-Blood and absolutely loved it, I would definitely choose Pure.
