Giveaway THE EXEMEUS SCAVENGER HUNT + Q&A with FOLAMI & ABENI MORRIS!

Hello all and welcome to the fifth stop on the Exemeus Scavenger tour. 


About The Exemeus:
Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she's been given another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.

In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.
His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she's been dead for 13 years.



About the authors:
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.

 Folami Morris:
 Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad. 

Abeni Morris:
 As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.

PLEASE WELCOME ABENI & FOLAMI TO BOOKHOUNDS!~



1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?

Folami and Abeni: We would both have to say Spot and Tippy. Catch us on another day and we might remember the past completely differently, but for today that is our answer.

2. What are you reading right now?

Folami: I have been reading Apollyon for a while. Prepping for the release of the next book is so time consuming that reading has been put on the back burner.

Abeni: I’m reading How to Win Friends and Influence People. I decided to read something a little bit more serious than normal.


3. How does your garden grow?

Folami: Unfortunately, anything green dies in my hands. So my garden is barren. I don’t do too well with money either. Maybe I have a mental block around green, but I digress. To answer your question—It doesn’t grow.

Abeni: I will have to agree. Even my boyfriend has learned to buy me fake flowers. Maybe it’s hereditary.


4. What is the last thing you Googled?

We actually were both googling the same thing which was Kimberly Elise’s last name.

5. What makes you cringe?

Folami: That’s a great question. For me it will be people who don’t spend enough time with their children. Again, my answer to this same question will be different tomorrow.
Abeni: I would have to say bugs and world poverty. It truly can be anything, I cringe pretty easily.
