Introducing Turnt Up 21ers: A Debut Event


I have some incredibly exciting news for you all! I have teamed up with Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight to host an amazing debut event featuring our very own, Turnt Up 21ers. Both Shannon and I have worked really hard on this, and we're very happy to be sharing it with you right now!

For all of you who don't know, we'll be featuring a bunch of authors debuting in 2021 on a number of blogs. And of course, I have a SPECIAL TREAT for you guys today. I will be showcasing a 2021 debut author right here right now on the blog! Drumroll please!


A Rush of Snow & Ashes by Horatio Eukale
Book One of The Innocent Centaur
Publisher: Fat Bunny Books
Release Date: May 1st, 2021
336 pages



Have you ever imagined a world unlike your own?
A place only ever thought about in your mind?
An escape to all your troubles?

As a centaur, Val constantly battles against her inner demons. The ones telling her that she's not good enough to defeat the evil coursing through the land. Armed with only her four legs and two arms, Val discovers the key to success. Procrastination.

Along with her good friend, Amber the unicorn, she searches high and low for answers about her past. Who is she? Where did she come from? Who is this ominous Midfart the Vampire? Why has she acquired a talking potato? Val must overcome not only the obstacles in front of her, but also the one inside her. Including the digestion of that piece of broccoli. Only then, can she truly defeat the powerful Northern Fox Girl.

For Val, this is only the beginning. But for everyone else, it is already the end.

Hello! Horatio Eukale here! I just want to thank Val so much for hosting me on The Innocent Smiley, which coincidentally, is part of the series name! (How did that even happen? The world will never know). Anyways, I'm incredibly honored to have my upcoming debut A Rush of Snow & Ashes featured here. And since Val has asked me to talk about my inspiration for this book, that's what I'll do.

This may be surprising to some, but most of A Rush of Snow & Ashes is due to my experience. Well actually, all of it is due to experience. You see, this actually happened. In real life. Now, don't go brushing me off yet, because I have PROOF. Or I had proof. You see, I actually experienced all of this first hand. One moment, I'm with my friends having a good time. The next, I'm fighting with Val and Amber. And before I knew it, I was on my couch in my house.

For a long time after that, I knew something felt a little off. It was like someone was telling me to speak the truth, to write it as a book. Because it was REAL. And I had to WARN SOMEONE RIGHT? About this impending DOOM. AND THAT'S WHY HERE I AM TELLING YOU--

Hey this is Val again! It seems like we've run into some technical difficulties with this guest post! But that's okay, we have a whole event planned for you! So I definitely urge you all to check out all of these posts in the future!
