The Otto Digmore Difference - Want to read/review?

Happy Sunday! How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

I'm currently working on a blog tour of sorts for Brent Hartinger. There aren't set dates you have to post, but we are looking for people to read/review Brent's next LGBT+ novel, The Otto Digmore Difference. If you've read his Russel Middlebrook series, then you will recognize Otto's name. Don't worry, you don't have to have read the other books to read this one. It's the start of a new series. We do have previous books available if you feel the need to check any of them out.

Brent has various e-copies of the book available, so if you are interested, please let me know and what format you would need the book in! While there aren't set dates for posting, we'd love to have things go up in March since the book comes out next week.

I have a list of emails already of bloggers who would like to know about future blog tours for LGBT+ novels. If you want to be added, please let me know! You are never obligated to help with any book. I just want a list of people who I know are interested in at least LGBT+ novels.

For more on the book, the official summary is below:

“Road trip!” 

Otto Digmore is a 26-year-old gay guy with dreams of being a successful actor, and he’s finally getting some attention as a result of his supporting role on a struggling sitcom. But he’s also a burn survivor with scars on half his face, and all indications are that he’s just too different to ever find real Hollywood success. 

Now he’s up for an amazing new role that could change everything. Problem is, he and his best friend Russel Middlebrook have to drive all the way across the country in order to get to the audition on time. 

It’s hard to say which is worse: the fact that so many things go wrong, or that Russel, an aspiring screenwriter, keeps comparing their experiences to some kind of road trip movie. 

There’s also the fact that Otto and Russel were once boyfriends, and Otto is starting to realize that he still might have romantic feelings for his best friend. 

Just how far will Otto go to get the role, and maybe the guy, of his dreams?

I get so confused about the whole blog tour thing.. how does it work exactly??? -

Otto sounds like an intriguing character - I'm always drawn to characters that have something like disfigurement or a disability to overcome. That said, I can't say that the topic of this one piques my interest. :/

I really enjoy hearing about books with characters who aren't perfect on the outside,and have deep stories to tell. Hugs

Loving the sound of Otto, he sounds like such an interesting character on so many levels.

Good luck with the tour. I'd love to take part but a dinosaur (or so many of my fellow readers - most of them way younger than myself I hasten to add - inform me) I don't do e-books.

I think I'll pass on this one, Lauren. I've been burnt out with all the friends to lovers trope lately and I feel like I will not be able to give this book all the attention it rightfully deserves.

Good luck with the tour! Keep me in your mailing list!

I have to pass as well. I am struggling so hard with reading right now. I am going back to my go to authors for awhile in hopes of breaking out of a slump.

This one is unfamiliar to me! I'm booked through May (which is kind of insane), but I hope you get lots of great participants and reviews for the book! It sounds pretty cool. =)

Otto sounds great and of course road trip books are always fun :)

Thanks for the invite, but I can barely get through one book a month! It sounds like a good book though and the blog tour sounds fun!
