Get in loser! We’re going Blog Touring!
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Ian K. Smith’s new fiction novel, The Ancient Nine. Settle in, grab something to eat. Maybe have a glass of wine. Put your feet up and chill with me here for a little bit.
We’re going to start today with a little bit about the book, a little bit about the author and of course I’ll do my due diligence and post all the ways you can buy this novel for your reading pleasure. I’ve also got an excerpt from the novel so you can get a taste for the style. And (that’s right, there’s more) I’ve got a Q&A with the author posting a little bit later, so you’ll want to check back for that.
Released just this Tuesday, you definitely want to pick up The Ancient Nine if you’re into intensely descriptive writing, erudite mysteries and lots of research, as well as romance and a contemporary look at joining a brotherhood.
The Ancient Nine is basically if a young, mildly sexist Barack Obama joined a secret society at Harvard in the 80s (and whose to say he didn’t?!) and in the process, solved a fifty-year-old cold case and also discovered deep secrets that take a lot of clever research into religious texts to figure out. It’s some heavy shit!
I mean, did you see what Harlan Coben had to say about it the book? They put his words on a pretty graphic for us and everything.
For my full, unadulterated review of The Ancient Nine, click here! You know your girl never holds back on her opinion, even if she’s been politely asked by a professional publishing house representative to be apart of a blog tour. Can I live?!
