Get Loaded Tribal Gathering

Hello, everybody! Welcome to Blog Tour de Force Get Loaded! Me and theIBC–#rhymesdontit—will load you with awesome books and prizes…one is a FREE kindle! Let’s load you like a gun. #sorry #marksmanjoke

I am on tour with four other awesome authors who are giving away FREE ebooks to their commentors.  I am following Jackie Chanel who is giving away her trippin’ gangsta urban fiction A Hustlers Promise. Tomorrow Chelsea Fine will be giving away her steamy, but exciting YA paranormal romance Anew. Go by and visit them. But, today is MY day–,


Owww! Neiko just squeezed my pressure point! Correction…it’s about US. Me the author…Neiko—the main character of Neiko’s Five Land Adventure. Kind of obvious isn’t it? Her name’s in the title #duh

Intros are over.

Now I am going tell you what all the fuss is about and about the new tribe she’s forming outside of her home tribe. Neiko will tell you a little bit about her adventure in the Five Lands (which I made my debut MG/YA novel out of). No one has to worry about fighting in wars. #phew Unless they want to #toodangerous

I’ll do most of the talking since she’s a bit shy outside of a battle.

Anyway, to get a FREE copy of Neiko’s Five Land Adventure, leave a comment telling us what you find most interesting about Native Americans. Be sure you leave your EMAIL ADDRESS, so I can send it to you. Please let me know if you prefer mobi, pdf, or epub, and then it’s on its way! Read on! #theresmore

Also, the IBCis having this scavenger hunt thing. If anyone is wondering, we are not going around shooting any crows, buzzards, or possums. No animals are going to be harmed during this blog tour. Go to the IBC blog. Find the items on the site for more chances to win that KINDLE with everyone’s books on it. BTW, while you’re there, sign up for the IBC newsletter for 5 bonus entries! #competitionissteep The IBC seems to have a kindle fetish or something and they like making people fight for it. #notforthefaintofheart

Neiko, you’re up! Tell us a little about your adventure.

 Well, the book by Mrs. Author over here is about my adventure in a place I thought I made up. Also, Raven comes up with a cheesy scheme to take me out. I get stuck in the Five Lands after his plan goes south and when Ramses shows up. I have to get home, and I meet all kinds of new people—most aren’t human—and visit cool places. I’ll be seeing them again soon you don’t have to memorize everyone and it won’t be the last time you’ll see me. Mrs. Author stole my log entry and put it in for her readers after the story. #dirtythief

Here are some Outsiders who have read about my adventure who have entered in the tribe. There are three veterans. Tell them I said ‘Olleh’. Ask them, “Who is their favorite character?” If you do, then you get a chance to win the tribal gift that includes a signed paperback, but other contents are a surprise. Relax, there won’t be any snakes in it. But, you must do that TODAY to make it easier for the sponsors. But, you must visit all three of the veterans! Say the bold message by their link for extra credit and extra chances for the gift. Those IBC people call it a gift basket—same thing. Oh, I have to limit that this to the US only—nothing personal. Everyone gets an ebook though. Mrs. Author will tell you who the winner is later.

Veteran Sponsor Links (required for tribal gift):

Renee Hand Children’s Book Reviewer   Did you think Bloodhawk was hot?!

CC Cole  How is  my pal Shevata today?

Paper Mustang Neiko loves horses, especially mustangs

Okay, Mrs. Author, I’m tired of talking. Talk about the tribe now.

My name is AK Taylor, Neiko. I’ve told her my name a 100 times; she can be so stubborn!

The tribe is a special list on twitter where Neiko’s biggest fans are listed. Here what you do: 1) like the fanpage on Facebook, follow on Twitter, and follow the blog 2) @ or DM me and say you want to be part of the tribe. That’s it!

Reminders:  1) Leave a comment with your email for a free ebook. Please let me know what format (mobi, epub, or pdf) 2) visit the other authors during the tour #theyneedlovetoo 3) don’t forget about the TRIBAL GIFT and the KINDLE

  1. Hi thank you for a chance to read your book. I Love book events like this. The Father of my children grandmother was almost full blooded cherokee Indian and you could really tell just by looking at her. Her grandsons barely had or had no chest hair. Dark hair and dark skin, My gaughter is gorgious Dark hair , dark skin, dark eyes ,and round face, I am german and Irish with blond hair green eyes and light skin. We look nothing alike but you can see the Indian in her. Plus she collects anthing she can find she can afford about the history of indians.I believe i use Mobi format. I use the kindle for P.C. on my laptop. I have no reader but half my grand kids do now after xmas. LOL I want one for myself hahah my rmail is jscddmj [at] aol [dot] com Thanks again Joannie

  2. What I find most interest about Native Americans is their spiritualism. Thank you for participating in this awesome event! I prefer Mobi.


    Best of luck to you!

  3. hi A.K.! i’m not American and i’m fascinated with other cultures – especially those of indigenous tribes. my knowledge of Native Americans is very limited. much of what i know has been fed by Hollywood and it isn’t always a good picture. i am not even sure if our local stores or libraries have books about them. i think i have only 2 books and my library needs more. thanks for being gracious and i would prefer a pdf copy.


  4. Georgeanna says:

    Hi! Your book sounds great and I’m looking forward to reading about Neiko’s adventures. I love how Native Americans respect nature and the elements.

  11. Tammi Hagberg says:

    When we were small our parents took us to a Indian villiage ( I don’t remenber where, we only went the one time.) The teepees, and all the horses, it was suppose to be an authenticated Indian villiage. I loved it!

    The one thing, besides the horses, that stood out in my mind that I still remenber to this day is the ceremonial dancing and their ceremonial clothes. We even saw the night dancing and watched them dance around the fire. And I still remenber to this day. I tried to find the same place to bring my own children and couldn’t find it. But my parents made a very special memory to this day. And thank you for bringing it all back again!
    I can’t wait to read your book and would like the format to be pub please

  20. Hi there 🙂 Your book sounds so interesting! You can find me at and I’d love and epub copy.

  21. Denise Z says:

    Being a typical American mutt, I am fascinated by Indian lore. The tribal connection, traditions, and stories passed down over time that lives in the culture and beliefs. There is a connection there that I wish I had and the stories all have meaning. Thank you for the fun today. I look forward to reading about Neiko and following her journey. I would like an epub or mobi copy and appreciate the treat. I am sending a request to join the tribe and just maybe they will adopt me 🙂

  22. Karen in Breezy Point says:

    Mobi, please. Thanks. I think we can all learn something from Native American’s respect of nature.

  23. Katie says:

    Being married to a direct decendant of Pocahontas, I am definitely learning Indian tribal ways and beliefs. My husband has two full blooded Indian grandmothers. One continues to live many of the tribal traditions. My children are also being raised to understand and respect the Indian way of life. We are fortunate in that we live on a very large wooded farm. Our family is very close to the land and could, if needed, survive off of the survival skills learned through the Indian heritage. We have a collection of books of various genres about Indians and their way of life. I look forward to adding another.

    Thank you for offering your book for us to read.

  31. What I think is particularly fascinating about Native American culture are the legends. Learning the history or the meaning ascribed to things has always fascinated me.

    I’d love an ePub copy, if it’s not too much trouble. Thanks!

  32. Teresa Kleeman says:

    Hi I want to stop by and say Chwejn!

    That is hello in my language. I am Tuscarora Indian and what I like about Native American is our Culture and how we are taught. In my people we are taught that our Elders are our teachers and I children are our future
    We are taught that the Earth is our mother We are suppose to respect our mother and take care of her, not harm her. If man would only listen to our ways I love my rich culture and I love my Religion I’m very blessed to be a member of a proud and rich cultured Nation.

    Happy Blog Tour Day!! Whoo-hoo! I love Neiko! 🙂

  34. indiebookibc says:

    Yay for FREE ebooks! 🙂 I love this “tribal gathering”!

  35. Theresa says:

    I grew up on a reservation and loved going to the events that they held, even though I’m from a different tribe! Heritage of any kind is so important for all of us to learn about.
    Can’t wait to read your book, it sounds just like something up my ally!
    I’d prefer MOBI format, thanks!

  36. Amanda Wimer says:

    I love reading about a different way of life, and a different set of beliefs. Native American history is fascinating because of the things that were done to them and they still managed to retain their beliefs and way of life.

    epub or mobi works for me

  37. Stephanie says:

    I love the way Native Americans tame wild mustangs…
    Anyway, thanks for doing this, I can’t wait to read your book.
    epub or pdf works for me. 🙂

  38. Stephanie says:

    Email is, sorry.

  39. Ilya Arbit says:

    Hi Mrs. Author. Can’t wait to try out this new book.

    My favorite thing about Native Americans are their weapons & tools of the trade. For people that had to live off the land, they were quite creative in utilizing the right tools for the right jobs. For example, they were among the first to develop blade sharpening tools for hunting – things that are still used today in almost every home to sharpen our knives. Please tell Neiko good luck and godspeed in her future adventures – we can’t wait to hear about them.

    P.S. And of course congratulations to you AK on your debut novel.

    -Ilya A. – epub please…

  40. Jacqui R says:

    My fav thing would be the culture and stories.

    Pdf please, looking forward to reading this.

  41. Elizabeth says:

  42. John D. says:

    Thanks for participating in the Tour de Force! I have great respect for the Native American culture because they are so close to Nature. Unfortunately, I think many people have lost that connection. Looking forward to reading your book! Please send as a mobi to

    darksolstice13 (at) gmail (dot) com

  43. Jen B. says:

    I am part Cherokee. Of course, my whole family is blonde haired and blue eyed. I find the history of the Native Americans mixing with the white man so interesting. jepebATverizonDOTnet

  44. Sounds like something a little different to read and I’m always up for something new and different. Please send mobi format to christygibbon at juno dot com

  45. Krysykat says:

    I love the mysticism and the wonder of their rituals and rites. I love the culture and language 🙂 Somewhere in my family tree is a proud Cherokee, I wish I could speak the language but alas I am doomed to be unable to learn a language without butchering it.

    epub is just fine.


  46. dani says:

    i live in Arizona, home to Navajo, Hopi and Havasupai tribes. i feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to see artifacts of their art and culture first-hand from their ceremonial garments to the pottery to Kachina dolls to Navajo blankets to the ruins of the cliff dwellings. their art is exquisite and it is all interesting, fascinating and amazing.

    thank you for the chance at the giveaway ~ i have a 14-year-old granddaughter who would love to read your book. {so would i.} my email address is d.h127 (at) yahoo (dot) com and pdf would be great.

  47. Elaine says:

    I find the tribal traditions and oral history the most interesting. I would love to read your book in epub format. Thanks so much.

  48. LizzieBeth says:

    Love the cover of your book. Native American history and traditions has always intrigued me ever since I was a child – the way they utilize everything the earth has to give and are at one with the spirits. Thanks for the giveaway and GL with the tour.

  49. Tamsyn says:

    I have mostly seen movies and documentaries about Native American. While not really familiar with their history and culture, I get the impression that they live with nature, not against them. Many thanks for the giveaway! I would love the book in pdf format.

  50. Angi says:

    What I currently find interesting about Natives is pretty specific – how the Northern Idaho triibes mix Catholic and Native traditions for burrial. My niece (very sadly!) just lost her father and her grandfather (Nez Perce) within three weeks in December, and hearing about Catholic services in the Longhouse was rather interesting.

    Hi AK, I have to say I am fascinated with every bit of Native American life. I’m starting a little late in life with my newest obsession for knowlledge. But better late than never, right? The thing(s) that fascinate me the most….toughy…..but I have to say their spiritualism, love of nature, compassion for others and their belief in themselves. I have met so many Native Americans who are more self confident and kind than alot of so called do gooder high society folks. Everything about Native American culture touches me. Last year was our first trip to the Smokies and that started the ball rolling on an already curious mind of mine.
    Thank you Neiko for the interview ;0)

  65. Diane says:

    i have a cousin/BFF that is part Native American. We have been besties since my mom showed me a picture of her as a baby and said ” Look, your godparents love you so much they adopted a baby girl to be your best friend.” They couldn’t have chosen a better friend for me.
    I would like a copy of your book in Mobi format. My cousin & I share an Amazon account since I gave her a Kindle last year for Christmas. May I share the book with her?

  66. Would like a mobi version of your book. I have loved stories about Native Americans ever since I was about 12 & read a story a young girl that was raised by the Indians after the rest of her family died during their wagon trip westward. Had a lot of information about their daily lives & domestic chores. Of course life at that time was much harder (more manual labor) for all races. I wouldn’t have had any time for reading!
