HELLO, EVERYONE! WELCOME TO THE WEEK LONG CELEBRATION FOR CLEAN TEEN PUBLISHING, HOSTED BY YOURS TRULY, THE TEA-RRIFIC READER!
First, let me tell you how I learned about Clean Teen Publishing. I was browsing through NetGalley (after many months of stopping myself to do so, because of my low ratio) and saw this title that caught my interest: Queen of Someday by Sherry Ficklin. It has a gorgeous cover!
Queen of Someday
by Sherry Ficklin
Series: Stolen Empire #1
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction
Expected Publication October 7th 2014 by Clean Teen Publishing
ONE GIRL WILL BRING AN EMPIRE TO ITS KNEES...
Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the throne of Russia—at any cost.
Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans.
Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.
In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme?
In this blog event, I'm going to post excerpts of some of their titles. As much as I'd love to include reviews, I can't at the moment. I'm really, really loaded up with requests and I want to pick some books off my shelf. Still, I'll be sharing reviews of their titles in the future. Anyway, let's appreciate these books and somewhat give them a try!
CTP COMMITMENT TO THEIR READERS
At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe that our readers deserve to know ahead of time what they are reading. We do not believe in censorship; we believe in the right to know. Every reader, no matter what their age is, has certain boundaries they don't want to cross. Currently there is no consistent rating system in place for books like there are for movies, music and video games. We believe by offering a wider range of disclosure about the content of our books, we will give readers of all ages and parents, a stronger sense of comfort according to what lies between the pages.
With that said, we will not deem whether a book is appropriate or inappropriate for any particular age range. Our disclosure is simply for you to know what is in the book and we leave it up to you to decide what you are comfortable with reading.
CTP COMMITMENT TO THEIR AUTHORS
At Clean Teen Publishing, we believe our authors, who create new and amazing literary worlds, deserve to receive a large share of the profits that their art creates. We also believe that our authors deserve the support of quality editing, breathtaking covers and the power of a strong marketing presence behind them. As authors ourselves, we know that your writing comes from your heart and, in a sense, is a part of you. We will carefully protect that part of you and work hard to keep your creative vision alive.
"While our name is: Clean Teen Publishing, we cannot guarantee that the books we publish are always clean to your standards. While everyone’s moral values are different, we try to bring to light the content of our books to allow each reader the opportunity to make their own personal decisions."
