Welcome to my stop of the @TBRBeyondTours Down With This Ship Blog Tour. I’m here to spotlight Down With This Ship on my blog and share a few of my thoughts with my fellow bookworms.
“Young teens will enjoy the classroom rivalries, fandoms, and all out geekiness that Down With This Ship fully adopts.”Cecelia Beckman, Sheaf & Ink
Down With This Ship Blog Tour
Alright bookworms we can all agree that we have our favorite series where our inner fan person wants to burst out and celebrate all things [insert Book Series, TV Show, and/or Movie].
There are so many great stories and characters that we can individually gush over. We can imagine and even possibly continue to create storylines that don’t even exist. Perfecting and shaping it to our truest desires. Hoping those writers and authors who create these entertaining stories will somehow hear our inner thoughts, and fulfill our every whim and desire for the characters we so desperately love.
And, as we all know, there are characters who deserve a happily ever after.
Where we “ship” them as our OTP (one true pair).
So when you’re introduced to Kole Miller, your inner fan person can relate to her fangirling (as well as fanfiction) over a TV series she can’t stop talking or writing about.
Which is why I’m here to spotlight Katie Kingman’s debut novel, Down With This Ship.
Let’s dive in:
Down With This Ship By Katie Kingman
Content warning: Light bullying.
Kole Miller does one thing really well: write fanfiction for the show The Space Game. Everything else is a struggle: like managing her anxiety, frequent crushes, and plans after high school. But when her blog, Spacer, wins a major fanfiction contest, her traffic soars.
With massive readership comes criticism Kole isn’t prepared for, including getting stuck in the heated ship wars surrounding the show. And then an invitation to speak at The Space Game’s official convention arrives in her inbox.
When the most competitive kids in her Creative Writing class discover Kole’s writing Spacer, her blog is taken hostage and she risks them hitting ctrl+A+del on Spacer. To win it back, Kole must face both her inner demons and the ones at Crystal Lake High before they make the drama not just about The Space Game, but about Kole herself.
Including snippets from Kole’s fanfic, emails, and text messages, Down With This Ship is sure to bring out the inner fangirl in anyone.

About the Author
Katie Kingman has wanted to be a writer since freshman year when her English teacher read her story out loud. The experience was mortifying, but it led to a lifelong love of classic literature and writing fiction. She now lives, teaches, and geeks in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, two kids, and five cats. When not writing, she can be found gardening and scrolling Netflix for a new OTP.
