*happy sigh* Just LOOK at that cover. Isn't it just amazing? I have a thing for filigrees...and gold...and ahhhhh xD 

Aaaaanyway we gotta get onto the book and a ton of other fun stuff too. Ahem. Welcome to the second day of The Reluctant Godfather blog tour relaunch! If you've never been to my blog before, then welcome and greetings and hope you enjoy your visit! And to those who've been here before...welcome to you too and SO glad you came back!! 😁 Now! Onto the tour!! 


A humorous and magical re-telling of Cinderella from a unique perspective. 

Burndee is a young and cantankerous fairy godfather who would rather bake cakes than help humans. A disgrace to the fairy order, Burndee has only two wards entrusted to his care...a cinder girl and a charming prince. 

A royal ball presents Burndee with the brilliant solution of how to make his wards happy with the least amount of effort. He'll arrange a meeting and hope the two fall in love. 

The debut novella from Allison Tebo, The Reluctant Godfather is a new addition to the charming fairy tale tradition of Cameron Dokey and K. M. Shea 

You can find (and buy!!) The Reluctant Godfather on Amazon HERE or on Allison's website HERE



This charming little novel is a retelling of the classic Cinderella story…but with a twist! I’ve read a lot of Cinderella retellings, but this one has got to be one of my favourites. It comes from a very unique point of view, not your typical retelling, that’s for sure! And the twist at the end! Ahhh! I mean, I’m *very* glad it happened, but still…totally wasn’t expecting that at all xD I'm not gonna reveal the twist cause DUH but hey, if you’re curious, you should go read it. *hint hint* Really though, I very much recommend this book to basically anyone and everyone! 

Oh yes and Burndee’s baking! *happy sigh* As a baker myself, I love love LOVE reading about any kind of baking in books :D And the wonderful author, Allison Tebo, not only did an awesome job with the characters and the plots and story telling, she did a marvellous job describing all that baking. Made me feel hungry yet strangely satisfied all at once ;)

My favourite character I think is a lot of people's favourite...but I mean, he's just AWESOME ok? And I think it might also have to do with the fact that you just don't normally see a fairy godfather in the Cinderella story. And let me tell you...he sure ain't the bubbly, bouncy, bippity boppity boo fairy godmother in Cinderella. If anything he's more like...the exact opposite. And yet somehow he's just as awesome...maybe even more awesome. Despite his cantankerousness (Is that a word??) he just had me laughing so much...he probably would've frowned on that but oh well. Burndee's just amazing, y'all. 

But I won't tell you ALL about him, otherwise it'd spoil the fun for you when you read it. So...obviously you know what I'm gonna say. 

Go read it!!


Allison Tebo is a Christian author in her mid-twenties who loves to write fiction in every genre. It is her goal to write fiction that appeals to many different kinds of people by writing clean, classic fun. Her desire is to provide quality stories for every age to enjoy.

Find her on social media! 

So today, I have the privilege and honour of interviewing the author herself....Allison Tebo! Shall we? πŸ˜‰

Welcome to the blog, Allison! So...how long have you been writing for and when did you discover your passion for writing? 
I've been writing for sixteen years. I originally started writing to imitate my big sister, who is also a writer--but almost immediately discovered that writing was something I loved to do. 

That's amazing! It's always so much fun when we discover passions of ours. Now let's talk about this novella of yours! What is your favourite part about The Reluctant Godfather and who's your favourite character? 
My favourite part about The Reluctant Godfather is that it makes people laugh. Even though I've read it so many times myself, it still makes me laugh. Laughter is such a gift, and to be able to give it to other people in the pages of a story is a blessing. My favourite character, at this point, would probably have to be Burndee--he is such a bundle of curmudgeonly insecurities and raw talent. A gruff, sarcastic mentor with a heart of gold. 

Yessss...Burndee is awesome. He just always had me laughing! Ok so slightly random question, but I tried to tie it into writing. What's your favourite food to snack on while you're writing?
I try not to eat TOO much while I write -- but I love to reward myself with some chocolate. I occasionally munch on popcorn or slurp on ice cream. 

Chocolate 😍That's all I'm gonna say on that certain topic xD Where do you find is the best place for you to write?
Either my desk in my bedroom or on the living room computer. I am very picky about where I write and once I get accustomed to working in a certain place, it's difficult for me to write anywhere else. 

Now for that one question where you just reveal some awesome amazing advice πŸ˜‰ What would you say to anyone aspiring to be a writer?
Don't rush into publication! A writer isn't necessarily the same thing as an author. Just because some publish doesn't mean you have to. If publishing is in your future--then I would advise you wait. Maturity will only enrich your writing to where it needs to be for publication and prepare you better for being a published author. Nothing in the world can replace experience--not only in honing your craft, but in living your life. Nothing can replicate the maturing that comes only through time. Just like a connoisseur waits for wine to age, the same truth applies to writers. 

There. See? Told ya. Awesome amazing advice. And totally relevant to life in general as well! Thank you so much for the interview!! ^_^

A Grizzly Bear Brunette Really

Ok ok here's the picture you've been asking for. Apologies for not posting it in my previous post...but I did have a reason! The look was supposed to be a surprise for my friend and if she saw it on my blog...well obviously that wouldn't work very well xD 

But voila here's the three-quarters "grizzly bear" me!
