Left To Die Blog Tour!

  
     Hello everyone I hope your week is going well. Today I'm taking part in the Left To Die Blog Tour. This is my very first blog tour so bear with me, I'm still learning.
       But before anything is done though, I have the pleasure of introducing you to the author

Ivy Rose is an 18 year old history lover and literary enthusiast. Aside from writing, she enjoys being outdoors, eating chocolate, traveling, reading, and doing Taekwondo (Not Karate). She resides with her family of 9 on the banks of the Long Lake in eastern Washington.
             She can be found at various places on the internet:


But what is "Left to Die" about?

I'm glad you asked


About the Book:
Lindy Greene’s life is perfect. Too perfect. But living as a missionary nurse, serving in a small hospital in China, soon brings the disaster she fearfully anticipates. All of her well-thought-out plans for the future disintegrate after pulling a fatally ill, disfigured, abandoned child from a pile of trash. She doesn’t even like babies.
Nathan Thomas can’t find balance. College suited him just fine until his cash ran out, forcing him to the Chinese mission field with his parents. The chaotic atmosphere in China does little to relax his agitated mind, and the pretty blonde nurse at the hospital does nothing to help him focus.
The Chinese mission field isn’t for the faint of heart. Nathan wonders how he can survive his remaining time there, while Lindy struggles to help everyone she can. With different ideals pulling them in separate directions, there is one thing drawing them together: a tiny, sickly, crippled orphan who relies on them to stay alive.
 

Recently I had the chance to interrogate the author (insert evil laugher)


WAAAHAT???

Naa I'm just pulling your leg. But I did have a chance to have an interview. And this is what transpired within that interview...


1) What prompted you to write this story? 
      The inspiration from Left to Die came from my sister, whom we adopted from China almost 11 years ago. She had a tough start in life and almost didn’t live to see her first birthday, but thanks to some wonderful people in China, she was able to have the necessary lifesaving heart surgery and is now a bouncing, bubbly 11 year old. :) She was the start of opening my eyes to the orphan crisis facing the world today. My hopes with Left to Die is that awareness will be raised, and possibly, more families will be willing to consider adoption.
2) What drives your writing?
      There are a lot of things that drive my writing, but mainly, the stories that keep coming into my head. If I don’t write them down I drive myself crazy. ;)
3) Are you're characters more of a Batman type (dark and lonely) or Superman type (sees the good in every situation)
   I think most of my characters are the Superman type. Probably because that’s how I am—I am teased that I have a “Pollyanna Complex” and have the annoying ability to find something good with every situation. ;)  I feel that a lot of that leaks into my characters.

Well wasn't that fun? I'd like to thank Ivy for stopping by and answering some questions (even the geeky Batman one 😁)

    1. Same here but I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it sure sounds cool!

      Batman characters are always fun, especially if you team them up with Superman like characters. It's a fun mix
