Blog Tour: The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough #Promo #BlogTour @mbrockenbrough @RockstarBkTours

Welcome to my stop on the tour for The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough. Today, I was supposed to have a review penned out for you, but unfortunately I was unable to do so due to family emergencies and then my wedding this past weekend. However, I do have a promotional spot here for you and an exclusive giveaway, all hosted by RockStar Book Tours!

The Game of Love and Death
Martha Brockenborough
Published by Arthur A. Levine Books (an imprint of Scholastic)
Publication Date: April 28th 2015

Antony and Cleopatra. Helen of Troy and Paris. Romeo and Juliet. And now . . . Henry and Flora.

For centuries Love and Death have chosen their players. They have set the rules, rolled the dice, and kept close, ready to influence, angling for supremacy. And Death has always won. Always.

Could there ever be one time, one place, one pair whose love would truly tip the balance?

Meet Flora Saudade, an African-American girl who dreams of becoming the next Amelia Earhart by day and sings in the smoky jazz clubs of Seattle by night. Meet Henry Bishop, born a few blocks and a million worlds away, a white boy with his future assured — a wealthy adoptive family in the midst of the Great Depression, a college scholarship, and all the opportunities in the world seemingly available to him.

The players have been chosen. The dice have been rolled. But when human beings make moves of their own, what happens next is anyone’s guess.

Achingly romantic and brilliantly imagined, The Game of Love and Death is a love story you will never forget. 

Martha Brockenbrough (rhymes with broken toe) is the author of two books for adults and five books for young readers.

She's the founder of National Grammar Day (every March 4), and she's written game questions for Cranium and Trivial Pursuit. The former editor of MSN.com, Martha has interviewed lots of celebrities, including the Jonas Brothers and Slash (his favorite dinosaur is the diplodocus). Her work has been published in a variety of places, including The New York Times. She also wrote an educational humor column for the online encyclopedia Encarta for nine years. 

She lives in Seattle with her family. Her favorite kind of food is Indian, although Thai runs a close second. Besides writing, she likes board games, playing music with the family band, travel to places far and near, drinking lots of coffee, and working out really hard at the gym.

5winners will receive afinished copy of THE GAME OF LOVE AND DEATH! US Only.
