There has been one late entry to the blog tour for Through the Last Door:
- Eyes On Books:
This particular stop for the book was supposed to be held on day four but was delayed for various reasons. I'm so glad it was able to go forward, however, because it includes an absolutely thrilling review of the book that had me bouncing in my chair when I read it. ^_^ "You just have to buckle up for this journey, because that is what it is. Forget sleep, work, and other such trivial things and just… enjoy!" Click here to read the full review and participate in a final chance at the giveaway for a free copy of the book.

The blog tour for Through the Last Door wraps up today with three final stops:
- The Novel Approach:
Today's first stop includes a guest post and giveaway. In my guest post I chose to write about world-building, and the process I went through when I constructed the fantasy world for Through the Last Door. It was a meticulous, engrossing experience that I wouldn't trade for anything, and I'm dying to dive in and get my hands dirty again (so to speak ^_^) on the sequel.

This stop consisted of promo post with an excerpt and another chance at a free copy of the book. Click here to enter the giveaway!
- Jill Prand:
The tour's final stop landed on the blog of comtemporary romance author Jill Prand, where it received a review that left me grinning from ear to ear. "J.A. Jaken has written a wonderful coming of age story here. Kaori's journey from young man to King is told with intricate characters and beautiful artistry. [...] A Five Star read!"

On day four the blog tour for Through the Last Door has stopped by:
- BFD Book Blog:
By request I wrote a guest post about some of the dark and damaged characters I've enjoyed writing about in the past. It's true that I've written my share of darkfic in the past, and that I've put my characters through more than their fair share of trauma. In this post I discuss my motivations for writing in this genre and for putting my characters through this kind of suffering.
