Xpresso Blog Tour~ The Alchemists of Loom

I'm sure that by now you have gathered that I am a devoted fangirl to everything Elise Kova writes. So when the opportunity arose to be apart of Xpresso blog tours, tour for her latest release...I just couldn't resist.

For today's blog tour stop, and the concluding day of this blog tour, Elise will be sharing with us the "Top Ten YA Authors" she would want to collab with.

But first here is a little information about the book...

~About the Book~

Title: The Alchemists Loom {Loom Saga #1}
Author: Elise Kova
Publisher: Keymaster Press
Publication Date: January 10th, 2017
Genre: Adult (YA Crossover) High Fantasy, Steampunk
Description: Her vengeance. His vision.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

Top Ten YA authors you would want to collaborate with if you had the opportunity

The idea of collaborating with another author, in any capacity, would be really exciting for me. I’ve never collaborated with another person on a novel, but I think there would be a unique give and take that would produce a story that’d be quite unlike anything else.

Authors I’d love to collaborate with all have something to their storytelling that I think would help me expand my own perspective and craft. This list is numbered, but it’s not actually in any particular order. I’d be ecstatic to work with any of these talented writers. I did cheat though, and put a few who weren’t YA… Forgive me!

1. Susan Dennard (TRUTHWITCH)
2. Danielle L. Jensen (STOLEN SONGBIRD)
4. Naomi Novik (UPROOTED)
5. Dave Duncan (A MAN OF HIS WORD)
6. Leigh Bardugo (SIX OF CROWS)
7. Victoria Aveyard (RED QUEEN)
8. Lindsey Cummings (ZENITH)
9. Pierce Brown (RED RISING)
10. Kevin J. Anderson (YOUNG JEDI KNIGHTS)
