On my tour today is a spotlight of In the Light of the Eclipse at Peace, Love and Writing, a blog run by Philadelphia author Prudence Hayes. If you haven’t joined the tour yet, head on over to the nicely represented spotlight and read the first part of the second chapter (with a link to the entire full chapter), find out where you can buy the book and even enter to win a signed copy. I want to thank Prudence for participating in my tour.
And don’t forget to come back next week when my tour ramps up with several exciting guest blogs and a few more reviews of the book. You won’t want to miss it!
Today’s stop on my virtual book tour takes us to Nyxx’s Nook, a book blog by Nyxx Raven, a lover of good books of all kinds. Nyxx was kind enough to conduct a terrific interview that allowed me to discuss my favorite author, some of my favorite characters (both mine and those I wish were mine) as well as allowing me to give a bit more insight into my creative process and where my ideas come from.
But more importantly was Nyxx’s review of the book, which is quite wonderful to say the least. I want to take a moment to say thank you to Nyxx for her time and for being generous enough to take part in the virtual book tour for In the Light of the Eclipse.
Today on my book tour for In the Light of the Eclipse, you can enjoy a terrific interview conducted by The Complete Self-Publishing Indie Author’s Resource Site (Wow! What a mouth full). The site helps promote independent authors to the best of their ability, and I want to thank them very much for spotlighting In the Light of the Eclipse and conducting the interview, which will give a little more insight into what I wished I would have known before I started writing, what I like to watch on television, and why I chose self-publishing over the traditional route. (Quick Note: You will have to scroll down past the spotlight to get to the interview).
Also of note: Yesterday I mentioned that a guest post had been postponed (and might be canceled), but it now looks like that guest post will happen in the next couple of days at a different stop. I’ll let you all know when that stop is.
Today I’ve got two spotlights for In the Light of the Eclipse. The first is at Author Rose Wynters blog, the second is at button-the-push. Rose Wynters is the author of several supernatural romance books (which seem to be more adult in nature than my own young adult fantasy) while button-the-push is a general review site for all book lovers run by a fun Aussie-Brit living in Finland named Elisa. I thank them both for taking the time to spotlight In the Light of the Eclipse to their fans and followers.
I was also supposed to have a guest post up today, but that stop was postponed for the time being. I will let everyone know when that stop is rescheduled, or if it is canceled. (I’d like to give a special thanks to Rose Wynters for stepping in at the last minute to fill in for the missing guest post. Very generous and kind, indeed.)
The Virtual Book Tour for my new young adult novel, In the Light of the Eclipse, begins today with a great interview at Fantastic Indie Authors. Learn more about me, the book and my inspiration behind it.
Over the course of the next two weeks, there will be several more interviews and guest posts, each that goes into a little more detail about where the book came from and what makes me tick as an author and person. There will also be a couple of reviews for the book itself, so you don’t want to miss those.
Head on over to the complete tour schedule to follow me on the tour. Each day, I will add the link to the next stop, and will also be posting more information here on my blog so that you have a better idea as to what to expect. Don’t miss out! This is going to be a lot of fun!
It’s finally here!! My new novel, In the Light of the Eclipse, is now available for sale in paperback and kindle for your reading pleasure. The young adult fantasy follows Zoe as she tries to stop an eclipse that plagues her land once every seventeen years and save her best friend, Kayla, from its deadly effects. If you’re still on the fence, you can read the first chapter to learn a little more about the land of Heather and how Zoe and Kayla first met.
With just under a week to go before the release of my new book, In the Light of the Eclipse, the first chapter, titled “Zoe and Kayla,” is now available for your reading pleasure. Learn more about the land of Heather and find out how the novel’s main characters first met and formed the lifelong friendship that will ultimately be tested as they search for answers to stop Heather from taking so many innocent lives, including Kayla’s.
CHAPTER 1 – Zoe and Kayla
Zoe met Kayla by accident on the bridge overlooking Lover’s Pond. It was a brisk, slightly foggy morning and Zoe was out on her usual jog around the lake (something she did to keep herself busy between waking in the morning and heading off for schooling, more so than staying fit or healthy). As she crossed the bridge at just past six fifteen (she remembered the time well because it was ten minutes earlier than when she would normally cross the pond; her feet felt so much lighter that day), Zoe stopped to take in the sounds and smells of the morning, which on a day like this—as the dew dripped off the flowers and the soft hint of moisture caressed her face—was just delightful. She leaned up against the rail to let the rays of the sun breaking through the thinning fog warm her face and noticed something peculiar in the water. It wasn’t a duck or a fish as one might expect to see in the early morning, but a family of pearls dancing just above the water. Zoe slid her head between the lowest rails to get a better look and the pearls disappeared under the water. She strained to see where they might have gone, but it was still too dark to get a real good look into the normally crystal clear water. Maybe she had imagined it.
To read the rest of the chapter, go to the book’s official website.
Beginning on December 2 and running through December 16, 2013, I will be participating in a virtual book tour for my new book, In the Light of the Eclipse, hosted by Fire and Ice Book Tours. For those who don’t know what a virtual book tour is, it is basically a series of blog posts on several different sites that promote the book in some way. In my case, this will consist of interviews, guest posts, reviews and spotlights. And it looks to be an interesting and fun way to get the word out on the publication of my new book. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
