Book Blitz & Author Interview || Giveaway || The Truth About Air & Water || Katherine Owen

Today is the book blitz for The Truth About Air & Water
by Katherine Owen
This book blitz is organized by Xpresso Book Tours.

The Truth About Air & Water
(Truth in Lies #2) By: Katherine Owen 
Publication date: August 25, 2014
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
The Truth In Lies Series. READ This Much Is True, book 1 first, although it’s been written as a standalone. Readers say, don’t do that.

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” -Ernest Hemingway ~ A Farewell To Arms

They share an epic love but one moment changes everything. A life together that seemed certain is shattered. One learns you never love the same way twice; the other learns what it means to come home. You only think you know how this love story goes, but do you really know how an epic love can end?

“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

She is living color, and I’ve been in a black-and-white world for far too long without her.
Powerful stuff. It surrounds me. I’ve felt it since I first arrived. The forcefield of her. The magnetism of her. The power she wields over me. I’m alive again because of her, like a dying plant that finally gets some water. I’ve got it bad for this girl.
Reality dawns.
The light comes through the darkness and shines on me.
She’s my water.

-Lincoln Presley

The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d’etre.
-Tally Landon

Author’s note: This novel is part of the Truth In Lies series. It can be read as standalone, however, fans of my fiction already are highly recommending that those new to my work, READ This Much Is True book 1 FIRST.

As Lincoln Presley would say, “do as you must, Princess.”



Author Interview

What is your favorite genre? Who are your favorite authors?

KO: I read a variety of genres. I am a huge fan of Gillian Flynn, Tarryn Fisher, Katja Millay, Tess 
Callahan, and Jennifer Egan. The writing techniques of all of these writers influences what I do 
with my own work and the things I picked up in the classes at The Writers Studio adds to my repertoire.

Tell us about The Truth About Air &Water. What inspired this story?

KO: The idea of Tally came to me about three years ago during a writing assignment for one 
of The Writers Studio classes I took. In that assignment, she was an artist—promiscuous, bent 
on self-destruction—when she comes across a guy, who has everything going for him. Linc 
didn’t change too much from the initial beginnings, but obviously Tally did. I wanted to write 
about two characters that had been dealt their fair share of tragedy and show how it shaped 
their psyches and influenced what they did and ultimately what they wanted out of life. I don’t 
think of these two as being co-dependent. I see them more as being whole and complete with 
the other. Enhanced. In reality, these two would be perfectly fine conducting entirely separate 
lives on their own—away from each other—because they put their all into their chosen careers 
of perfection. Tally with ballet. Linc with baseball. However, I hope what readers come away 
with is realizing that ballet and baseball are just a means to an end, part of the fulfillment, but 
the true dream they long for is being loved for who they are, despite being famous for ballet and 

What kind of books do you write? What is your style?

I’m a writer of dark, angsty love stuff. (Angsty is not a word; c’est la vie.) If you’re going to 
read my work, you need to prepare properly with tissues, perhaps some wine nearby, Advil or 
something stronger and don’t start my work late at night because there is a point where you will 
not be able to stop reading.

Who should read your books? What kind of reader?

KO: Readers who enjoy reading more of a dark romance with complex characters and appreciate 
twisty plot lines will enjoy my novels. I don’t write predictable storylines, and I don’t write to 
recipe. If you’re looking for light and fluffy, move along, my stuff is neither of those things. If 
you’re looking for sex scenes through the latter half of the book, you’ll be disappointed because 
although I like sex, I don’t think it should take up half the storyline. If you have an appreciation 
for a little literary flair and don’t mind the propensity for the f-word every so often or stories 
that will make you cry, read my work.

What are your future book plans? What's in the works?

KO: There is going to be more of Linc and Tally in a third book. Yes, I have committed to fans 
for a third book (yet to be named) in the Truth In Lies Series. Caution: I’m not a fast writer (or, 
is that fast thinker?) so it will be a little while. Look for the third book some time in 2015.
I don’t do novellas. I don’t do serials. I have a WIP called Saving Valentines that I really need to 
get back to and two unnamed WIPs from my writing classes with The Writers Studios that both 
hold exciting promise. Writing. I am always writing or thinking about writing.

About the Author:
A penchant for angst, serious drama, and the unintentional complications of love began early on when she won a poetry contest at the age of fourteen and appears to be without end. Owen has an avid love of coffee, books, and writing, but not necessarily in that order. She lives in an old house near Seattle with her family where she is working on her next book.
