I am thrilled and honoured to be involved in The King Is Dead blog tour! I am excited to get back into this book after my recent reading slump made me stop at the halfway mark (CURSE YOU ANXIETY-RIDDEN READING SLUMP!), so when the call to be involved in the blog tour came, I jumped at it!
If you aren't aware of this, The King is Dead follows James, the first black heir to the throne. But when his father dies unexpectedly, James is thrown into the spotlight as the first Black King of the United Kingdom. As well as trying to navigate this new world - a world he doesn't want - he is hiding his sexuality and his secret relationship.
Now, I was meant to have Benjamin on the blog in video form (heavens hopes that I can upload the video on here otherwise we are in TROUBLE), chatting about the book. But technology has got in the way (Once I have the video working, I will upload!)
So, in the meantime, I have created a mood board to inspire you guys to pick up The King is Dead! I hope you like.
Now, before I show my handle-work, I just want to thank Ellen and Simon and Schuster for asking if I wanted to be involved (thank you!) and thank you Benjamin for finding time to record upcoming video that should be here soon! I know how busy you both must be (and with the weather we had on Tuesday, am surprised we're all still functioning!)
Oh! If you want to find Benjamin online to say hi, you can find him on Twitter at @NotAgainBen and on Instagram at @notagainben! Now, ONTO THE BOARD!
TA-DAH! Ok, you probably think this is a little basic, but I wanted this board to catch the vibe of the book, hence why some choices are very obvious and others... not so much. And some of the pics postures are important (well, to me). Anyway, that was fun!
Thank you for having me on this tour!
