Easy by Tammara Webber Blog Tour & Giveaway

Posted 16 November, 2012 by Danny in Blog, Blog Tour, Danny, Featured, Giveaways / 91 Comments

I guess you all know by now how incredibly excited I am about all those “New Adult” books. Books that feature College Age Kids and are a little edgier than our usual YA books! Easy is one of the books I am not getting tired of recommending , because it’s just so damn good! Easy has been picked up by Penguin after the initial hype surrounding the self-published version! So happy for Tammara and yeah for Penguin!

 

So, today I am ridiculously excited to be one of the EASY Tour Stops, with a post from Tammara about “New Adult” and a Giveaway!!  

 

“New Adult” as an emerging genre”

by Tammara Webber

I’m not convinced publishing needs a new category. For years, publishers told agents (and therefore authors) that stories with college-aged protagonists won’t sell. These manuscripts were either rejected out of hand, or the author was asked to change the ages of the protagonists to high school or later twenties. One rationalization publishers made: only college students are interested in reading about college students. This simply isn’t true. The interest shown by hundreds of book bloggers and thousands of readers attests to the fact that books like Beautiful Disaster, Slammed, Thoughtless and Easy (among many others) have an audience—a wide audience. The inclusion on the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers lists of dozens of books tagged “new adult” confirms that purchasing audience further.

 

My belief, where brick and mortar retail is concerned, is that these books should be divided by content between young adult and adult literature. Readers have had no problem finding them online without a separate category. Issues-based books like Easy and Slammed are geared toward the young adult category, and are no more edgy, explicit or dark than others found there. A “mature” tag could warn parents of younger readers that the books are intended for 16-ups. Books like Beautiful Disaster and Thoughtless are geared toward adults, and are perfect for readers of contemporary romance. Both groups will be enriched by the addition of protagonists from the previously absent 19-23 year-old range.

Easy by Tammara Webber

Get Easy amazon | indiebound | barnesandnoble | audible

Publication:  September 13th 2012 by Razorbill

synopsis from goodreads;

Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn’t easy…

He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

(Mature Young Adult/ New Adult)

About Tammara Webber

website | facebook | twitter

EASY is my newest contemporary stand-alone novel. BETWEEN THE LINES is my contemporary series. Available on:AmazonAmazon UKBarnes & NobleKoboiBookstoreIndieBound, and the Book Depository.
 
Reading was one of my first and earliest loves, and writing soon followed. My first book was about a lost bear, but my lack of ability as an illustrator convinced me to abandon that effort and concentrate on passing 3rd grade. I wrote sad romantic poetry in high school and penned my first half-novel when I was 19, for which I did lots of research on Vikings (the marauders, not the football team). It was accidentally destroyed when I stuffed it into the shredder at work.
 
Addictions: coffee and Cherry Garcia frozen yogurt. Also baby carrots, but not with coffee or frozen yogurt, because that would be disgusting. I love shopping for earrings, because they always fit – even if I occasionally forget to work out. I’m a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life.

 

Seriously, I am freaking in love with Lucas! You all have to meet this boy! *swoon*

Tell me what do you think about New Adult?

And … did you read Easy and loved it? Or, if not are you going to read it?? 

 Much Love!

  1. Personally, I find NA an interesting genre. I’ve only read Colleen Hoover’s books on top of Beautiful Disaster, but I think that there’d certainly be a great amount of books that I find not particularly likable, mostly because of the relationships depicted in them so far. But I’d continue hunting down NA book in hopes of finding a beautiful work like Slammed and Point of Retreat.

    I’ve had this one on my TBR list for quite awhile but they don’t have it at my library yet.

  3. Daisy R

    I haven’t gotten the chance to read Easy yet, but have been dying to pick it up. It would also be my first New Adult, which I’m interested to read. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Marie-Michel

    I like new adult because the characters are often a little more mature than in Ya because of their age (and life experience of course) ans also because sometimes, I can relate to them more.

    I did read Easy and I really loved it.

  5. Laura Johnson

    I’m okay with it but honestly thought YA covered it since it is young adult NOT teen.
    I haven’t read EASY yet.

    vsloboda(at)gmail(dot)com

  7. I like the idea of New Adult, because in just a few short few, I will be a New Adult. I loved Easy, especially all of the college life hjints in there, and I would love to get a nice paperback version of it! Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I’m a huge fan of New Adult Fiction. Sometimes the adult is too “adult” and the YA is not nearly enough. Easy has been on my TBR list for a few weeks now – I can’t wait to read it!

  9. jennifer

    I have not read Easy yet but am dying to read it. I have read a couple of books in the New Adult category and absolutely love it. Great category!

  10. EASY!!!! I bought this book on your recommendation Danny and you, as per usual, did not let me down. This book just blew me away and it’s one I’ve already reread twice. I can’t get enough of Lucas:) I’m such a huge fan of reading characters who are college-aged, and I’m crazy excited publishers are starting to realize there’s a huge audience out there who feel the same way, so hopefully now authors won’t be asked to lower or raise their characters ages and we can get them as they were meant to be:)

  11. Ana Lucía

    Oh God, yes!! I want to read this so badly! I haven’t read any NA but I’m so happy with the new genre. It fits my age so it’s perfect for me. Not too old or teen.

  12. Sarah Cruz

    I haven’t read any New Adult book yet, but I’m dying to read Easy! I have read so many good reviews about it. Thanks for the giveaway:)

  13. Faith D.

    I love New Adult as much as I love Yound Adult. Haha 😀 I’ve always wanted to read Easy! I think it’ll be a great read 🙂

  14. Sarah Handrich

    I love the new adult genre. I like that the characters are closer to my age! I read Easy and loved it and would love to own it in print so thanks for the chance to win!

  15. leannessf

    I love the New Adult genre – I can relate more since I am past my teen years and there are steamier scenes!

    Easy is definitely on my TBR list!

    Thanks,
    Leanne

  16. Carl

    I have no problem with the New Adult category of books. If it makes it easier for people to find books that will appeal to them then it’s a good thing in my opinion.

  17. Victoria Zumbrum

    I like the idea of New Adult. I would love to read this book. It sounds really good. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. are you kidding me? I freaking loved Easy. New Adult is a great genre and I want more. I have read a few new adult books this year that have thrown me for loop. i love it. and Easy was really one of my top five books of 2012

  19. I’m so happy to see Easy getting some love! That book was AHMAYZING!!

    I personally love having a new adult genre. I didn’t even know these kinds of books existed until they got their own genre. Maybe some people had an easy (LOL!) time finding them, but I was totally clueless. So I’m really glad that the new adult genre is highlighting these books. I also love that by having their own genre, I know exactly what to expect. I know I’ll be dealing with more mature issues than YA and I love that! I know that it will be about college students. I know that things might get hotter and heavier. But if they were just bundled in with YA, I wouldn’t know exactly what I was getting, like I do know.

  20. DeeDee Griffin

    I love love LOVED Easy! New Adult is my new favorite genre. It’s spicier than YA but sometimes the adult books can get too graphic for me. So this is perfect in the middle.

  21. Ivy

    I think that New Adult is a nice transition into Adult. Some people don’t like the heavier material that happens in Adult books, and I can’t blame them for wanting to have a different genre that shows the difference.
    I was planning on reading Easy, but I don’t have it. =(

  22. Danielle

    I think NA is a great concept and its a perfect concept. I love YA but with a little pizazz.
    I have read Easy and LOVED it!!!

  23. Kai W.

    I think New Adult is different. I haven’t read any of these books but I try this genre and decided if I like this genre after a read a book or two.

  24. Ryver

    I do like some of the New Adult books that are out.

    I have read Easy and I love it. It is on my top 5 favorite books. I have recommended this book to so many people and they have all loved it too.

    Thank you for the great Chance to win a hard copy or a paper back. I have my fingers crossed. My husband always says you have that on the nook (ebook) I say it isn’t the same. I still want a hardback or paper back of my favorites. He don’t understand.

    Am I crazy or do you guys ever do that?

  25. Megan

    I absolutely love the New Adult genre. I am so excited that it is finally getting some widespread recognition.

    I have read easy and Lucas made me swoon!!! It is definitely one of my top books of 2012.

  26. I LOVE new adult. I’m thrilled to no longer be in that awkward age between young adult and adult books.

    I purchased an ecopy of Easy when it came out and fell in love. I’ve read it a few times and would love to own a paperback copy.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. Christine

    I love that NA is more relatable to my age range (college years). It has all the qualities I love about YA, but more willing to push the boundaries and be a bit grittier and more real, which I think is amazing 🙂

  28. Sandy

    I’m fine with NA but I don’t feel like it’s a necessary category. I loved Easy and would definitely love to own a paperback. I’d read it over and over again!

  29. Amel Armeliana

    Well, NA genre is more to my age range and I’ll read it definitely. But actually, I read every genre as long as the story is interesting. And Easy is one of the book that really caught my attention. Can’t wait to read it.

    Thank u for this giveaway.

  30. Natasha

    I haven’t read any NA books yet, but I hope to soon and I can’t wait to read Easy!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  31. Maureen

    I haven’t read Easy yet but it looks like a story I would enjoy and the new adult category is an interesting one.

  32. Kristin

    I had no desire to read this until my sister bought it and she told me how awesome it was. Needless to say, I loved it and am now interested in reading more in the New Adult genre.

    And I’m entering the contest ’cause I want my own copy of this book!

    • Kristin

      Oh yeah, I forgot to add that one of the things that I adored about the author before I even read the book was that she said she loves happy endings, that there are enough sad endings in real life, which I totally agree with.

  33. Deathnote

    I love reading NA books! Although I’m almost 30, they keep my spirit alive and make me want to be a teenager again… Sigh 😉

    I received ‘Easy’ as ebook a couple of months ago and I devoured it in just a few hours! Loved it, loved Lucas! Way to go, Tammara! ^^

  34. wren b.

    I am not sure what to think about New Adult. I mean it is YA adult but a little the older young adults. I really think that this age group is not written for and I am glad to see that writers are starting to. I would really like to see some paranormal reads since all I have seen are contemporary. I have not read Easy but it sounds good.

  35. Tiffany Gomez

    I think the New Adult genre is a good idea. I guess books like Easy need a genre of their own, even though I would still read it if it were classified as YA. But yeah, I definitely plan on reading Easy, regardless of its classification.

  36. Susan Ramos

    To be honest, I really like the idea of a New Adult Genera. I have constantly looked for books with leading characters that are in my age range “19-23” with a college-esque feel to it. I have friends that aren’t in this age range (35-40s) who have actually been the ones to recommend me these books that I was looking for, because they too consistantly look for it. So I think that this would make things so much easier for all the readers like me that search for it. But it could also just be my laziness getting the best of me, lol…

  37. Stacey

    I am loving this NA genre. Beautiful Disaster has to be my fave book but also have read all of Tammara’s book and she is fab!! Love Easy!!

  38. Tess

    Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my TV bad boy that broke my heart 🙂 And yes, I’ve fallen in love with The Vincent Boys, and I wish to know more about Beau on all levels! Haha!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. Claire Huggins

    The Skywalker boys broke my heart and Beau is welcome to come over and fix it anytime.

    Easy is a wonderful book. Once you read it it will stay in your head forever.

  40. Sarah O

    I really love NA in general, but I haven’t read Easy yet. I’ve only heard good things so I can’t wait. I’ve read Beautiful Disaster, and even though a lot of people love it, I can’t stand it, so I hope that Easy doesn’t fall under that category.

  41. Angie McKeon

    I don’t really watch TV so nobody in a series has ever broke my heart…lol. I do love the Vincent Brothers though. I love Sawyer and I’m hoping he lands up with someone awesome. I hated that he got his heart broke in book 1. I still need to read book 2.

  42. Texas Book Lover

    I have heard amazing things about this book and will definitely be reading it very soon!

    Thanks so much for the chance!

  43. Tammara Webber’s ‘Between the Lines’ series were the first NA genre books that I read. Since them I’ve been reading more and more in this genre. It is addicting!

  44. Cha

    I already read Easy in ebook. And I loved it, I super loved it. And I can’t get enough of it. I love Lucas. 🙂

  45. Maria

    I really enjoyed Easy. The characters, scene and plot kept my interest from beginning to end. I’ve shared it with several friend whom have loved it as well.

  46. Rita Chuks

    Dear Ehis, Thank you for your patience with me during my custom spell casting.

    During the middle for February my long time on again off again girlfriend broke up with me. She had some major problems going on in her life at the time and I was receiving some of the blame for them and she just felt it would be better if we were not together. And in typical fashion she handled the break up poorly and completely ignored me as she always did during prior break ups. I also had 2 recent deaths in my family (1 happened before we broke up and the other happened about 2 months later). So I had a lot of stress going on in my life. I hired Seductive Spells around the middle of February; they had a money back guarantee which made me feel that they must be good at what they do. So I went into this thinking that I would have my ex back in about 4 weeks. Well as time dragged on I started to feel as if this was not going to work at all. During all of this she moved, her phone number was disconnected and I thought this was over for good. In fact I decided that I had better get used to being single again and I tried to forget about her. I started hanging out with my friends more, I even wrote to Ehis requesting my money back. Ehis told me that she felt that this would work, that I had to remain positive and she felt that things would turn around. Throughout all of this Ehis always would amazingly get back to me quickly when I would send her an e-mail, usually within a few hours of the email being sent. As I had been pretty negative about this throughout most of the last 4 weeks I decided to follow her advice and let them continue casting for me. I completely tried to put my ex out of my mind as best I could and kept myself pretty busy, something that I had not done much of since we had broken up. Memorial Day night she called me and told me that she wanted us back together, that she missed me a lot, and that I had to let her know right then and there as we were on the phone if we were going to get back together. I was shocked, each time we did get back together before it was always me that made the 1st move; never had she made the 1st move. We have seen each other almost every night since then and things are getting back to where they used to be. I have to tell you it’s still really hard to believe. She is pretty nervous talking around me sometimes since we have gotten back together and I notice that she is trying to be careful not to say or do the wrong things this is the email:ehisalextemple@gmail.com

    After being in relationship with him for nine years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email is (dr.olokunspell2caster@gmail.com)tel.+2347051841955) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.Margareta

I never believed in any of these things but when i lose my wife for 4 years, i required help until i found Vugalovetemple@gmail. com A great spell caster, and he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my wife back in just 48hours but i was in doubt, and after the spell has been cast, 48hours later, just as the spell caster said, my phone rang, and surprisingly it was my wife who has not called me for the past 4 years, and she made an apology for the pain she has caused me and she told me that she is ready to come back home for me.

    Dr.kokotemple, and friends, I wanted to give you an update on my situation. On Feb 14, 2006 I requested a binding love spell be cast on my boyfriend. His eyes roamed to any woman that passed us and it made me feel horrible. I am happy to report that a week after I requested the spell he proposed to me. We have been married for a year now, are expecting our first child in Nov. 2009 and he no longer has eyes for any other woman. I was greatly impressed with the fast results and the personal attention I was shown during the casting and beyond.he is real a good spell caster email dr.kokotemple@gmail.com
