I’m setting up a blog tour and book blast for January Black by Wendy S. Russo
The Blast will take place on Wednesday April 10th. The tour will run from April 23rd to May 3rd.
This is a Young Adult Science Fiction Fantasy
Content: January Black might toe the line of what a conservative reader would find acceptable in places…profanity here and there, teen drinking, sex is implied, but for the most part, I think they’ll find Matty and Iris’ romance keeps a fairly high moral standard.
For more please see this 5 Star review on Clean Teen Reads: http://cleanteenreads.blogspot.com/2013/02/review-january-black-by-wendy-s-russo.html

Sixteen-year-old genius Matty Ducayn has never fit in on The Hill, an ordered place seriously lacking a sense of humor. After his school’s headmaster expels him for a small act of mischief, Matty’s future looks grim until King Hadrian comes to his rescue with a challenge: answer a question for a master’s diploma.
More than a second chance, this means freedom. Masters can choose where they work, a rarity among Regents, and the question is simple.
What was January Black?
It’s a ship. Everyone knows that. Hadrian rejects that answer, though, and Matty becomes compelled by curiosity and pride to solve the puzzle. When his search for an answer turns up long-buried state secrets, Matty’s journey becomes a collision course with a deadly royal decree. He’s been set up to fail, which forces him to choose. Run for his life with the challenge lost…or call the king’s bluff.

Wendy S. Russo got her start writing in the sixth grade. That story involved a talisman with crystals that had to be found and assembled before bad things happened, and dialog that read like classroom roll call. Since then, she’s majored in journalism (for one semester), published poetry, taken a course on short novels, and watched most everything ever filmed by Quentin Tarantino. A Wyoming native transplanted in Baton Rouge, Wendy works for Louisiana State University as an IT analyst. She’s a wife, a mom, a Tiger, a Who Dat, and she falls asleep on her couch at 8:30 on weeknights.
