V is for Virgin Blog Tour Stop


Hello everyone!  It's been a while since I've participated in a blog tour, so I decided to get back in the swing of things by joining this blog tour hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.  Today I have an awesome interview, guest post, and giveaway, so read on!!



V is for Virgin
by Kelly Oram
Release Date: December 11, 2012
by Bluefields

Goodreads / Purchase
When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over.


~Author Interview~



1. Why did you become a writer? 
It’s always been a hobby of mine since I was a little kid. Eventually enough people told me I needed to do it “for real” that I decided to make a career of it.

2. Who were your biggest influences? 
I’d say Meg Cabot, Kelley Armstrong have had the most influence on my writing style, and I’d kill for a tenth of the brilliance that John Green has. If I aspire to be like anyone, it’s him or Meg.

3. Is there a special routine you like to do before you write? 
Ha! Putting both babies down for a nap first helps but is hardly ever possible, so usually I turn on Yo Gabba Gabba, pop myself some popcorn, chug a Diet Dr. Pepper and hope for the best.

4. Is there a special place you like to write? 
I love to write at the library, but I usually end up on the living room couch, again where I am joined by my two babies and DJ Lance Rock. (There’s a party in my tummy! So yummy! So yummy!)

5. What is your favorite movie? 
Die Hard (The first one. Best. Movie. Ever.)

6. Favorite food? 
Steak and potatoes or pot roast.

7. Favorite book? 
The Host by Stephenie Meyer.

8. When and how did you get the idea for V is for Virgin?
 A few years ago I was between stories and I asked my brother what I should write about next. His answer was that I should write a book where he was a “hot famous rock star who got all the chicks”. I was feeling generous that day and decided to run with it.

9. Is there another book in the works? If so, what can we expect?
My next book is set to release summer 2013. It’s a YA paranormal romance titled Chameleon and is the first in a 4-book series. You have no idea how excited I am to finally share my fantasy side with the world because I am really a supernatural junkie at heart. You can expect magic and monsters and prophecy and betrayal, and, of course, plenty of hot tempers, sarcastic banter and hot boys. It’s also my first real love triangle, so I had some fun with that. I’ve also got two more Jamie Baker books in the works! Yay
