Alessa: The past few weeks on the Stitch Blog Tour, there’ve been a lot of readers asking for more about Isaac, so I’m here today to conduct a quick interview to help you get to know him and the world we come from a bit better. We’ll start with an easy one – you ready, Isaac?
Isaac: Ready as I’ll ever be, Less.
Alessa: Okay, here we go. Question number one: what makes our relationship special and unique?
Isaac: Whoa! That’s an easy one?? Isaac has a LOT more to say about that

I really did love the story line. Well thought out, Alessa’s story is definitely different than any that I’ve read before. I’m not entirely sure how to praise it without giving too much away. What I can say is that the statement that it bridges paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi is spot on. Alessa’s life isn’t what it seems. No matter how flawed she might feel her existence is, nothing can prepare her for what she discovers about her past. Check out the rest at Hopelessl
Let me just say OMG! I remember reading the back cover when I first received this book for review, but by the time I started reading the book, I only vaguely remembered that it had a girl and a ghost in it. I thought it would be like so many countless other books I have read about a girl falling in love with a ghost. I WAS WRONG! This story is not what you expect at all. I was floored when I hit the twists and turns that finally explained what was going on. I never expected i
Whoa! Stitch was nothing like I was expecting. It surprised me so much. I went into it thinking it would be intriguing. Then I picked up the book a while later and forgot what the summary said. So I start the story and I figure its a simple little ghost tale, and I expected to enjoy it. But I got so much more from Stitch, and it is not a simple story. Not at all! It is continuously morphing, which meant that it was always grabbing my interest. Once I really got into the story
I'm so excited to share with you today this amazing review from JeanZBookReadNReview: I usually don’t go for ghost type stories, but I loved the way this one was going and it really drew me in then it twisted to bring in a time-travel element possibility, and I thought I wasn’t going to like the direction the book was going in. So then I just got used to the time travel possibility, when the direction twisted again to a more dystopian edge. Then you read further and realise t

I ensure any dystopian fans out there that you’d love this one. That’s for sure. It’s not even your usual dystopia fare because it pulls you into a twist you wouldn’t see coming. How cool is that? Pulling a genre change right inside the novel and it won’t make your eyes roll. Samantha, you rock! Thank you, Dianne!! And another big thanks to you for hosting!

Today on the tour, head on over to Willing to See Less for an author interview! Of course, anytime you do something new and different, there’s always the possibility that people won’t like it… With Stitch, some of the early feedback I received was that the idea was a little “out there.” Quite a few people encouraged me to tone down the big twist and stick to a more traditional paranormal romance path. But the beauty of being a writer – and a self-published writer in partic
Wow! Wow! There are so many twisty turnies in this book, my mind is still in a whirl. Eep!! Now most of you have read The Hunger Games. Divergent. Matched. Uglies. Delirium. Etc etc. But I bet you’ve never read anything like this. Big thanks to Ana for hosting! Remember to enter the giveaway and check out the rest of the review over at The Book Spark today! Tomorrow, keep your eye out for an author interview and e-book giveaway at Willing to See Less! #blogtour #bloggers #gi
Stitch has to be the most interesting, well written, and deeply thoughtful book that has ever had the pleasure of existing. It reached into the deeper recesses of my mind and brought out feelings that I’d never felt before while reading a book. The way things were described was so realistic and rich that I can picture Alessa’s world as easily as my own. This novel blurred the edges of my reality with its own fantastic world of lies, intrigue, and deceit. Stitch is true an ama
I really thought this would be about time travel. Although ususally not a fan of the subject, I was perfectly fine with the idea that female lead Alessa was seeing a ghost named Isaac, and was supposed to travel back in time to safe him, since this didn’t sound totally absurd and the emotional level was startling. Everything was so perfectly in place, I was totally forgetting that the blurb already mentioned she wasn’t really a university student and Isaac wasn’t really a gho
This book was bettter than I thought and I couldnt put it down. This book gets 4.5 stars.

Stitch is one of those books that takes you all over the place. Right when I thought it was going one way, suddenly a new twist appears taking me in a completely different direction. Some might think that’s confusing but in this case, it was masterfully written. The story itself was shocking at times (like shivers down your spine…in a good way). Make sure to check out the rest over at The Red Reader, and big thanks to Austine for hosting today’s stop on the tour! Tomorrow we’
Samantha: Hi everybody, Samantha Durante, author of Stitch here, along with the star of Stitch, Alessa Khole. To help you get to know us a little better, we’re taking a silly compatibility quiz that we found online. The results should be enlightening!
Alessa: (rolling eyes) You’re such a dork.
Samantha: I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that. Okay, Less, good to go?
Samantha: Question 1 – what’s your favorite food?
Alessa: Cheese! Definitely cheese!
This interview was originally posted at Mostly YA Book Obsessed as part of the 2012 Stitch Blog Tour: 1. Can you share something about the second book in this series? (Title, quote, teaser?) Sure! The title of Book 2 in the Stitch trilogy is Shudder, and there are some MAJOR bombs that will be dropped in this next volume, including a lot more background about how Alessa got where she is and a deeper exploration of the philosophical questions behind the desire to build a utopi

The story is complex and full of unexpected twist
