Lyrian Wallace was only ten years old when the Malevolence struck on October 10, 2056. She thought the next decade had numbed her to the grief, the death, the bots, and the daily struggle for survival. She lost her parents when they became Sleepers, but like everyone else, she had pieced together a new family. Lyrian was almost content when the Alliance began taking them . . .

The world always took things away from her. She could only live for today and never dared to hope for any heaven. But when her circumstances change, Lyrian must choose how she might live for both this life and the next.

1.) Describe your book in 25 words or less.

When the world collapses, your family is gone, and technology fails you, where would you turn for hope when your life is on the line?

2.) What was the inspiration for this book?

I observed a growing sense in our society that we can use technology to solve all our problems, even death. People dream of cheating death. One way or another, people are in search of a technological salvation, one achieved by humanity’s collective intellect and will. As a Christian, I think they’re looking in the wrong place.

Over the past few years, I’ve read several dystopian books and watched dystopian movies, and the thought occurred to me: “Jesus matters to a billion people on Earth, and many times people turn toward God when life gets hard. If these stories are set in a bleaker, darker future, why shouldn’t people be clinging to the hope found in Jesus?”

3.) To which character did you best relate?

As a father, I can relate to Jacob, though I can only imagine his pain. I’d like to think I’m like him, but I’m probably more like Doc: a quirky nerd.

4.) What was one of your favorite scenes?

I really enjoyed the scene where Jacob is sitting in a small cemetery having an imaginary conversation with his deceased daughter. That one tugs at my heart.

5.) What are you currently reading? On your TBR?

I’m finishing up the Rogues trilogy by Kristen Hogrefe Nelson, which is a really creative Christian dystopian trilogy. I’ve also just started reading Synapse by Steven James.

6.) What is something readers may be surprised to learn about you?

I love working in children’s ministry at my church and have been known to don a wild costume for a skit or two, if it will help teach the kids about God and how Jesus loves them.

D.K. Doulos has written stories most of his life and is thankful he can use his talent in service to God.

Meet Cookie O’Gorman, Author of Wallflower

 

 
Welcome to the Book Tour!
Today you’re getting to meet author Cookie O’Gorman and read an excerpt from her latest book:
 
Wallflower
by: Cookie O’Gorman
 
Read my book review over at Andi’s Young Adult Books!
 
Wallflower 
by: Cookie O’Gorman
YA Romance 
Release Date: March 25, 2021
 
 

 

Summary: 

Wallflower (wohl-flou-erh): Identifier for someone who is shy and/or awkward. For reference, see Viola Kent.
 
Seventeen-year-old Viola Kent likes being invisible. Well, not literally, but she’s content being a loner, reading her books, and hanging out with the animals at the shelter. She just wants to keep her head down and get through her senior year at Durham High.
 
Driving Dare Frost to school every day wasn’t part of the plan.
 
And when Viola finds out her dad recruited Dare, his number one player, to be her friend?
 
Her inner Slytherin demands revenge.
 
The solution: Get Dare to be her fake boyfriend.
 
Convincing the star athlete to pretend is easier than she’d thought it would be. The hard part is protecting her heart. With every word, touch, and kiss, Viola’s feelings become more real.

The problem: Viola knows she’s falling for Dare—but he doesn’t believe in love.

 

This book features two sets of soulmates, one happy pooch named Hermione, so many sizzling kisses and answers the question:

Can a dork and a jock fake their way to true love?

Excerpt:

“Come on, Dare.  Show me your moves.  Or did you run out already?”

Dare walked toward me until the top of my thighs hit the couch cushion.  “I’ve got a ton of moves, flower.  We haven’t even tried half of them.”

I blinked.  “Really?”

He nodded.  “I’m just trying to ease you into this, make sure you’re comfortable.  I don’t want to move too fast.”

Please, do, I thought.

The words that came out of my mouth were, “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

It had sounded good, quippy and totally aloof in my head.

But Dare took it as a challenge.

“I’m going to enjoy this,” Dare said.

Before I could respond, he gripped the backs of my legs and lifted slightly, making me gasp and throw my arms about his neck.  In the next instant, I was balanced on the couch back, my legs on either side of his hips as he took a step forward.  There hadn’t been that much space between us to begin with.  So, the next thing I knew his body was mere inches away from mine.

My cheeks flamed, and he drank in my reaction.

What inspired you to write this book? 

Hi there!  I’m Cookie O’Gorman, and I write YA & NA romance.  I was inspired to write WALLFLOWER because I loved the idea of this awkward, shy (until you talk to her 😊) girl having to drive Mr. Popular, the star jock, to school every day.  And then, I wondered what would the girl do when she finds out her dad asked this guy to be her friend lol?  It just seemed like a such a fun story idea, and my characters Viola and Dare won my heart, so of course, I had to write their happily-ever-after! 

What is your favorite thing about Viola?  What about Dare? 

I love Viola for her amazing heart and because she’s a hopeless romantic, Harry Potter fanatic and dog lover.  And I love Dare because he is just…sigh.  Dare is so charismatic, thoughtful, funny, kind, and such an awesome, perfectly imperfect guy. That’s definitely more than one thing for each of them, but I couldn’t pick just one lol!

Please describe your book, WALLFLOWER, in three words? 

Swoon-worthy. Fun. Romantic.

What was your favorite scene to write? 

I loved every scene with Viola & Dare.  Though the kissing ones were particularly fun to write!

What do you hope readers gain from reading WALLFLOWER? 

I hope WALLFOWER makes readers laugh, sigh, and smile.  I hope they finish Viola & Dare’s story with a feeling of giddiness and an undeniable case of the warm fuzzies.  And I hope it makes everyone who reads it believe in happily-ever-after 😊.
