EllaTheRealHero: Hi everyone! I’m Ella from the entertainment review blog Ellamara’s Words of wisdom, and I’m here with Hollywood Superstar Brian Oliver to introduce our new book Cinder & Ella. I want to start by saying thank you to Ambur for letting us stop by today. It was really sweet of her to let us come.
Cinder458: I don’t know that she let us stop by. I think we sort of hijacked Kelly’s blog post.
EllaTheRealHero: No, Kelly asked us to come and help out. You’d know that if you’d read the blog tour schedule.
Cinder458: Ella, I told you I have an assistant for that kind of stuff. You know, Scotty—quiet, anal-retentive, Boy Scout looking guy, likes to follow me around all the time…?
ScottMichaels: Actually, you pay me to follow you around.
Cinder457: Hey, hey, Scotty’s here!
EllaTheRealHero: Yeah, he is, so you should watch yourself and be a little nicer to him.
Cinder458: What do you mean? I’m always nice to Scott. I love Scotty. I wouldn’t be able to function without him.
ScottMichaels: That’s very true. Brian is the most disorganized person I’ve ever met.
EllaTheRealHero: You called him anal-retentive.
Cinder458: Well, yeah, but that’s not mean, it’s just what he is. Scott knows I love him. Don’tcha Scotty?
ScottMichaels: I know. Don’t worry, Ella. He’s actually a pretty good boss.
EllaTheRealHero: Yeah, I’m sure he is. He likes to pretend he’s a big tough guy, but he’s actually very thoughtful and sweet.
Cinder458: Plus I don’t make him wear a tie to work unless I have to wear one.
EllaTheRealHero: Now that is love. They should give you a medal or something. World’s Best Boss.
Cinder458: They totally should. And they should give you one while they’re at it. World’s Snarkiest Girlfriend. Why do you always have to bust on me, woman?
EllaTheRealHero: Somebody has to. Why not me?
Cinder458: Because you’re my girlfriend. You’re supposed to be sweet and supportive and stroke my ego when I need it.
EllaTheRealHero: Ha! Okay. If there ever comes a day when your ego needs stroking, I promise I will do that for you.
Cinder458: And what if other things besides my ego ever need stroking?
EllaTheRealHero: BIRAN OLIVER! Stop! Right now! Do not go there! We are supposed to be keeping this press tour teen-friendly and you know it. There’s no way Scott forgot to give you that memo from Kelly about keeping things appropriate.
Cinder458: What memo? I didn’t get any memo about that.
ScottMichaels: I emailed it to you, taped a copy of it to your fridge with certain parts highlighted, and I read it out loud to you twice.
ScottMichaels: Once when Kelly sent it to us, and once half an hour ago before we signed on today.
Cinder458: You both are no fun. Fine. What are we allowed to talk about then?
EllaTheRealHero: Cinder & Ella. You remember that book we’re supposed to be promoting right now? Kelly Oram wrote it?
Cinder458: Oh, hey, yeah, I know her. She’s pretty awesome.
EllaTheRealHero: Of course you know her, she—you know what? Never mind. Cinder & Ella is a great book, you guys. You should really read it.
Cinder458: Definitely read it. It’s epic. You won’t be disappointed. (I’m in it.)

It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.
Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.
