FINDING YOUR FEET by Cass Lennox Blog Tour




When Characters Fill Out Memes

I thought it would be fun to have Evie and Tyler fill out a small get-to-know-you meme each, and to share the results. Evie’s a Tumblr native, while Tyler isn’t, so this was a fun exercise to do!

NAME: Evie

COUNTRIES I’VE LIVED IN: UK, Canada

FAVORITE FANDOM: Yuri!!! On Ice

LANGUAGES YOU SPEAK: English, smattering of French and German

AESTHETIC: grassy fields, gin and tonics, pashminas with animals sewn on them, sneakers, gentle rain

FAVORITE FILM OF 2016: Ghostbusters

LAST ARTICLE YOU READ: I keep hate-reading stuff about Brexit. The entire thing makes me really upset.

SHUFFLE YOUR MUSIC LIBRARY AND PUT YOUR FIRST THREE SONGS HERE:

Cryin' - Aerosmith
Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
Cosmic Love - Florence + the Machine

LAST THING YOU BOUGHT ONLINE: a back-up hard drive

ANY PHOBIAS OR FEARS?: that I'll run out of tea bags.

HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS DESCRIBE YOU?: sweet, practical, intelligent

HOW WOULD YOUR ENEMIES DESCRIBE YOU?: tries too hard, selfish, boring

WHO WOULD YOU TAKE A BULLET FOR?: the people I love

IF YOU HAD MONEY TO SPARE WHAT WOULD YOU BUY FIRST?: all the different country-specific Cards Against Humanity packs

FAVOURITE PIECE OF ADVICE: Always listen to your gut - it knows things you haven't realised yet.

NAME: Tyler

COUNTRIES I’VE LIVED IN: Canada

FAVORITE FANDOM: what?

LANGUAGES YOU SPEAK: English

AESTHETIC: I don't know what this means

FAVORITE FILM OF 2016: Deadpool

LAST ARTICLE YOU READ: a piece in the Globe and Mail about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Fucking recycle, people.

SHUFFLE YOUR MUSIC LIBRARY AND PUT YOUR FIRST THREE SONGS HERE:

Floodlights, The Coast
Find Your Love, Drake
Firework, Katie Perry (I had to do a routine to it, swear)

LAST THING YOU BOUGHT ONLINE: shoes

ANY PHOBIAS OR FEARS?: Fucking up. which is dumb, because you can always get past it.

HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS DESCRIBE YOU?: inaccurately, and probably with bad jokes

HOW WOULD YOUR ENEMIES DESCRIBE YOU?: badly, but only out of jealousy

WHO WOULD YOU TAKE A BULLET FOR?: Anyone. We should all be better with each other.

IF YOU HAD MONEY TO SPARE WHAT WOULD YOU BUY FIRST?: nicer dance shoes

FAVOURITE PIECE OF ADVICE: No one knows what they're doing. It's okay to make it up as you go along. I always knew what I wanted to do but I’m still figuring stuff out. Life isn’t a race.


About Finding Your Feet

While on holiday in Toronto, Evie Whitmore planned to sightsee and meet other asexuals, not audition for a dance competition. Now she’s representing Toronto’s newest queer dance studio, despite never having danced before. Not only does she have to spend hours learning her routine, she has to do it with one of the grumpiest men she’s ever met. Tyler turns out to be more than a dedicated dancer, though—he might be the kind of man who can sweep her off her feet, literally and figuratively.

Tyler Davis has spent the last year recovering from an emotionally abusive relationship. So he doesn’t need to be pushed into a rushed routine for a dumb competition. Ticking major representation boxes for being trans and biracial isn’t why he went into dance. But Evie turns out to be a dream student. In fact, she helps him remember just how good partnering can be, in all senses of the word. Teaching her the routine, however, raises ghosts for him, ones he’s not sure he can handle.

Plans change, and people change with them. Learning a few steps is one thing; learning to trust again is another entirely.

About Cass Lennox

Cass Lennox is a permanent expat who has lived in more countries than she cares to admit to and suffers from a chronic case of wanderlust as a result. She started writing stories at the tender age of eleven, but would be the first to say that the early years are best left forgotten and unread. A great believer in happy endings, she arrived at queer romance via fantasy, science fiction, literary fiction, and manga, and she can’t believe it took her that long. Her specialties are diverse characters, gooey happy ever afters, and brownies. She’s currently sequestered in a valley in southeast England.
