New Release! Dethroning Crown by Lila Felix, plus an interview!

Hey y’all! Welcome to my tour stop for the book tour for author Lila Felix’s Dethroning Crown. This is my first time participating in another author’s book tour but I fell in love with the cover and title. Plus, Lila Felix will also be at the New Orlean’s book convention DitterCon with me. I thought this would be a great way to get to know her before we met! Lila is also from Louisiana so in honor of that, this interview will have only NOLA –inspired questions.
               
Lila:   First of all, thank you so much for being on the tour!
Jenna: You are so welcome! I'm very excited to be a part of it!

Jenna:     Have you lived in Louisiana your whole life?
Lila:        I was born in Baton Rouge at a hospital that my dad actually helped build. I lived in Denham Springs and Baton Rouge until I was sixteen when we moved to Los Angeles, California. What a change that was. It turned out that this Coonass girl was a fish out of water and when I was nineteen, I moved back on my own.
Jenna: You can take the girl out of Louisiana but you can't take Lousiana outta the girl. ;)

Jenna:       Where were you when Hurricane Katrina hit?
Lila:       When Katrina hit, my husband, kids, and I were all at home. We hunkered down in place. We were out of electricity for eleven days.
 Jenna:    I love hearing everyone's Katrina story. 
Jenna:       Chocolate Milk or a Café Au lait with your beignets?
 Lila:         Café Au Lait, hands down, cher.

Jenna:       What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
 Lila:        Nothing. We don’t really celebrate Halloween. But if we did, I would be one of the characters from American Horror Story, Freak Show.

Jenna:      What is your favorite flavor of SnoBalls?
 Lila:        Blackberry with cream. All the time. If that’s out, wedding cake.
 Jenna:   I will have to try blackberry with cream next time! I love wedding cake though, that's a classic. Also: Nectar with cream, Ice Cream with cream, and King Cake with cream. Can you tell I like cream?

Jenna:      What is your favorite food to eat while in NOLA?
Lila:           Willy May’s fried chicken.

Jenna:       If you were wandering Bourbon Street late at night, who would you rather run in to: Marcel or Klaus?
Lila:         Klaus, Klaus, and Klaus. Did I say Klaus?
Jenna:    Ah, I knew I'd like you! 


I hope y'all enjoyed getting to know Lila better, I know I did! See below for the beautiful cover, stalking links, and summary!

Dethroning Crown

By Lila Felix
Release Date: October 10, 2014

Synopsis


Number ten is plastered on his team jersey and on his ego. In his own mind, Crown Sterling is the shit. He dates the prettiest women, he dominates on the soccer field, he pours money out of his pockets like it’s water. Until a debilitating knee injury puts him out of commission on and off the field. He’s sent to an isolated town in Louisiana to recoup, undergo physical therapy and heal. But it’s when you’re down that you find out who your real friends are, and what they value in you, if anything at all.
All Lyra wants out of life is peace and quiet. She grew up with a regular, everyday family. When she turned sixteen, rummaging through her grandmother’s hope chest in the attic, she discovered a secret that would turn her simple, normal life into a ball of chaos that revolved around her. But while she seems to face her fears head on in her career, she lives a life that’s secure and well hidden.
A new neighbor moved in next door and he’s decided that everyone needs to listen to his rap music, shattering Lyra’s quiet existence. Enraged, she stomps to the next townhouse over and who should open the door but a man whose good looks and charming smile knock her breathless.
How good looking? Just ask him.
How charming? He’ll tell you that too.
The king must be dethroned.
And a small town girl who’s been through hell is just the one to do it.
