Who is Chuck and why does he like to travel?

I was born to be a writer and when I wrote my novel Wild Point Island, Chuck, my orange and white recently rescued feral tabby, got it in his head that he wanted to travel to the island and see the place for himself. Well, of course, Wild Point Island, can only be seen by revenants (you'll have to read the book to find out who they are) and Chuck is no revenant so instead, I concocted a plan to take Chuck with me when I travel around the world, which I do frequently. Not an easy task. First, I have to deflate the poor kid of all air, stuff him in my carry-on bag, remember to bring my portable pump, and when I arrive, I pump him back up. Ouch. But he's used to it by now and given the choice to either stay home in his comfy cat bed or get deflated, he pulls out his passport, ready to travel, every time.

Blogger Book Fair 2013 February 10 DAY 4



                 BLOGGER BOOK FAIR 2013

                             WELCOME

    This year our theme is The World for a Shilling, based on the cost of the entrance fee back in 1851 for the Great Exhibition held in Hyde Park, England. 


    
    Six million people or roughly one third of the population of Great Britain visited the exhibition.  


     In keeping with the theme of the Great Exhibition of 1851, I’d like to announce a CONTEST and then introduce two fabulous authors and their work.

First, the CONTEST:

Read the blurb of Wild Point Island and leave a one sentence comment with your email address.  During each of the four days of the Blogger Book Fair, one reader will win a free Kindle e book of my newest paranormal romance.  At the end of Day Four, I will pick again from all the readers who have participated.  The prize: $25.00 Amazon gift certificate. 

And, now the first author:


Rachel McClellan


Rachel McClellan was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When she's not in her writing lair, she's partying with her husband and four crazy, yet lovable, children. Rachel's love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, her imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was...


Her Work:




Fractured Light

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.





Fractured Soul

Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!



Endorsements

“I love these books! A kick-butt heroine and a hottie love interest, with a refreshingly original concept. Be prepared—once you start, these are hard to put down.”
Paula Cotton, book reviewer at
ReadingLark.blogspot.com


Fractured Soul is a brilliant sequel, exceeding even the remarkable first book in the series. It will haunt your every waking moment between the times you’re reading it, and it will stay with you  long after you’ve finished. It’s an amazingly well written and engrossing story that I highly recommend—after you’ve read the first one, of course.”
Cindy Bennett, bestselling author of Geek Girl and
Rapunzel Untangled

And our second author, Sherry Soule

Hi everybody, I’m author, Sherry Soule—waving from the SF Bay Area in Northern California. 





Today author, Sherry Soule  is offering us a sneak peek at the second book in her popular YA series, MOONLIGHT MAYHEM.





Special Excerpt taken from MOONLIGHT MAYHEM

In his soft gaze lingered a mute invitation. A fervent question. Trent took my hand. Unspoken feelings tangled as our fingers intertwined. Complicated veil of yearning drifted between our eyes. My arms encircled his waist. I rested my head against his chest. Inhaled his scent, a mixture of soap, minty toothpaste, and boy. Listened to his heartbeat. We exhaled simultaneously and he pressed his face in my hair. Calming and at the same time-intense.
I clutched at the front of his shirt and tilted my head. Our lips were a breath apart. My stomach flipped with anticipation. Our mouths touched lightly, but it quickly turned into a passionate kiss and we melted together. All thoughts of lycans and death disappeared. My eyelids fluttered closed. My arms wrapped around his body like entwining ivy. Clinging and pulling him to me, kissing him with all the repressed emotions whirling inside me.
Apart from the knee-jerking kiss, something tangible stirred inside me. It inhabited the center of my chest, a murmur of power unfurling. It tickled, then pulsed, then burned. The strange, thrumming energy felt like a bud blossoming into a flower and stretching toward the sun.
Black magick. My magick. His magick.
I should have been more scared and worried. But I wasn’t, although my heart beat too fast. And my voice had dried up. I forced myself to break the kiss, but didn’t move—because this is the weird part—I didn’t want him to stop holding me….
