{Virtual Tour} Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala

I was pumped when Holly Cupala agreed to visit The Hiding Spot and invited me to participate in her virtual blog tour. I hadn't read TELL ME A SECRET at the time, but I'd read rave reviews, so I jumped at the chance. Since then, I've experienced Holly's amazing debut novel and I'm so glad that I listened to my instincts! It's an honor to have Holly on my blog and to, hopefully, inspire you to pick up this book as well!

A Brief Bio

Holly Cupala wrote teen romance novels before she ever actually experienced teen romance. When she did, it became all about tragic poetry and slightly less tragic novels. When she isn't writing and contributing to readergirlz, she spends time with her husband and daughter in Seattle, Washington. These days, her writing is less about tragedy and more about hope. TELL ME A SECRET is her first novel. Ten percent of the author's proceeds go toward World Vision's Hope for Sexually Exploited Girls.
The Interview

In the video below, Holly reads one of my favorite passages from TELL ME A SECRET and answers a few questions about the novel.


You can check out Holly's next stop tomorrow, July 30th, at The Bookologist! Tomorrow is the last stop on the tour, but be sure to go back and check out all of Holly's adventures. The full tour schedule with links to each post can be found HERE.

Though her virtual tour is ending, Holly is the featured author at readergirlz for the entire month of August, so there's still plenty of time to learn more about her and TELL ME A SECRET.


Holly is giving away some great prizes during her tour! Details about eligibility and how to win can be found below!
