About the Author
Amparo Ortiz was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives on the island’s northeastern coast. Her short story comic, “What Remains in The Dark,” appears in the Eisner Award-winning anthology Puerto Rico Strong (Lion Forge, 2018), and SAVING CHUPIE, her middle grade graphic novel, comes out with HarperCollins in Winter 2022. She holds an M.A. in English and a B.A. in Psychology from the UPR’s Río Piedras campus. When she’s not teaching ESL to her college students, she’s teaching herself Korean, devouring as much young adult fiction as she can, and writing about Latinx characters in worlds both contemporary and fantastical.
About the Tour
The tour for Blazewrath Games is exclusive to book bloggers. It is open to both US-based and international bloggers, with priority being given to Latinx reviewers (especially those who identify as Puerto Rican). Its official hashtag is #BlazewrathGamesTour.
The tour will run from September 28th to October 2nd, which falls a week before the book’s release date. Although book reviews are required for this tour, you are more than welcome to add other creative or promotional content of your preference.
Physical review copies (ARCs) of Blazewrath Games will be provided to all tour hosts. Specifically, ARCs will be sent out to nine (9) international bloggers and (6) US-based bloggers. However, your NetGalley email address will nonetheless be collected. This will serve as a precaution for shipping delays, missing packages, among other issues outside our control. Hence, you must have a NetGalley account to participate.
As mentioned in our statement, since another tour company is holding their own book tour for Blazewrath Games, we will not be accommodating any of their hosts in the #BlazewrathGamesTour. This decision was made due to several reasons, with our foremost concern being that allowing individuals to participate in multiple tours for the same book will rob other deserving people of the opportunity. With that said, please do not sign up for our tour if you’ve already committed to someone else’s.
Sign-ups will close within next week, and the selected tour hosts will be contacted via email. The CBT Twitter account will announce once the confirmation emails have been sent out.
