Seditious Pre-Sale Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to participate in the Seditious Pre-Sale Blog Hop. I absolutely love Emily Guido’s books. I hope you like the blog post and the latest adventure in the Light-Bearer Series!

perf5.500x8.500.inddSEDITIOUS

The Fourth Novel in

The Light-Bearer Series

 Synopsis:

Seditious is the perfect title for the 4th book in The Light-Bearer Series. This book captures jealously, deceit, and restoration of love flawlessly.

Life at the Castle Charmeine is blissful until reality of the ruling the Elder Council of the Blood-Hunters causes dissent. An unexpected depth to both Tabbruis and Dmitri’s personalities humanizes both men.

This novel shows a side to Tabbruis and Charmeine’s relationship which will throw any reader of The Light-Bearer Series off kilter. Seditious is the continuation of their romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!

Lord Cromwell is a lethal Blood-Hunter who has escaped the Elder Council Prison. He sends his beautiful agent to cause destruction to those who live at the Castle Charmeine.

Bathsheba is a deadly, sexy, and vicious siren who threatens Charmeine and Baby Hunter. Not just with her present actions, but, with the past she shares with Tabbruis and Dmitri. However, the family works together to unravel Bathsheba’s deadly secrets.

Just when you think they are in the clear, a more heinous and ominous villain waits in the wings to tear apart our ill-fated lovers, Charmeine and Tabbruis.

Seditious is a heart wrenching and exciting story of passion, betrayal, and redemption you will not want to miss!

Excerpt:

Charmeine knew this beautiful woman was a very powerful Blood-Hunter. She felt Baby Hunter kicking and fought to control her anxiety.

“Ah, yes, very good gentlemen. We have her now.” The mysterious woman told the men in a thick, French accent. She gazed with wide spellbinding eyes at Charmeine. She looked like a cat ready to pounce on her prey.

The man who held Charmeine pushed her to go out the terrace doors.

She knew this was a kidnapping and worried for Baby Hunter. Charmeine struggled to gain some kind of fighting advantage.

The Light-Bearers practiced their self-defense skills with her daughter, Sandra, and worked on how to get out these hand-binding holds. After Charmeine’s encounters with Pascal, she never wanted to feel helpless again.

With speed and accuracy, Charmeine used her power to fly up backwards over the head of the Blood-Hunter. She broke out of his grip. Immediately, she leveled him with a powerful and fierce bolt of white electricity which stunned him into a stupor.

Percival took this opportunity to sweep the legs of the man who held him. He stunned his assailant, and made him fall down in pain with a green charge which ran through his body.

“Use your light for Athena!” Charmeine yelled to Percival.

Percival threw a green lightning bolt at the man who held Athena.

Within a second, the Blood-Hunter was on the ground. A green current cursed through him.

“Halt!” the Blood-Hunter woman demanded.

Charmeine looked up and a hand gun was aimed at her belly.

The woman widened her indigo eyes with her fangs exposed. She threatened, “You really never know where a bullet will go? Do you?” she laughed.

Her maniacal giggles curdled Charmeine’s blood. She could tell the Blood-Hunter woman was telling the truth.

“Yes, the bullet could just land somewhere very unhealthy for your unborn spawn.” She circled Charmeine like a shark swimming around its prey. “Not that hurting spawn of this Light-Bearer scum would matter,” she quipped in a matter-of-fact way.

Charmeine began to feel waves of nausea and fought the urge to be sick.

“The offspring is just a by-product.” With a sinister laugh the woman scoffed, “Yes, a by-product which should be tossed aside and thrown away like the trash it is . . . as soon as we cut it out of you!”

She began to laugh with a vicious tone and stuck the gun in Charmeine’s belly ready to pull the trigger.

Author Interview Questions:

On a similar note (pun intended), what music (genre, artist, etc.) most inspires your writing?

I like to listen to classical or easy listening music with headphones on. I hate being interrupted while I write, so sometimes, I stay up all night and write.

Which of your own stories is your favorite?

I don’t know if I have a favorite story since it’s a series. However, I would love to have dinner with Dmitri. He is the oldest and wisest of all the Blood-Hunters. But he still is totally gorgeous with long black hair and deep blue hypnotic eyes. He has a sense of humor like you wouldn’t believe. I don’t think Dmitri would like anything else but blood for dinner, but I would chomp on my steak while listening to his interesting stories about his past on Earth and look into his dreamy blue eyes. Totally got a thing for Dmitri, sorry, he is my fav!

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Keep writing and know social media to promote your book but also just say to yourself each day this mantra…

It only takes one…

One person to read your book

One person to tell another person about your book

One person to buy your book

And so on…

Tell me about your current work-in-progress and what your plans are for it.

SEDITIOUS is my fourth novel in The Light-Bearer Series and is coming out shortly, published by PDMI Publishing. YEAH! In a month it will be out on pre-sell on Amazon. SEDITIOUS is the perpetuation of Tabbruis and Charmeine’s love affair. They are enjoying life until the reality of ruling the Elder Council and Temple Guards come crashing down on them. Then a sexy, mysterious and gorgeous woman appears at the Castle Charmeine ready to take what she wants by orders of her Master, Lord Cromwell. Twists and turns, ups and downs are in in this novel of passion and redemption.

What is your ultimate goal as a writer? (To write for pleasure? To be a best-selling author? Something else?)

I write strictly for pleasure. Oh yes, I dream of having my books read around the world. However, if I did this for money or to be famous, I would have never gotten this far. My goal is to enjoy and pass on this wonderful story of The Light-Bearer Series! I have spent a lot of money making these books come to life and promoting them. I also network. I have spent hours promoting these books. It is a labor of love, and if I make anything, I just put it back into the books and promotion.

In Like a Lion, Out like a…

Hi Everyone,

No, I am not planning on discussing the weather. Sadly, this saying has applied to my family’s life for this past month…and so far there is no lamb in sight. So what has been going on in my world that has caused my silence here? Well, where do I begin?

Back in February, I posted that I was recovering from a broken wrist. (Tonight is my first night trying to type without my brace and it has proven to be an interesting journey.) What I didn’t explain during that short post, was that my grandfather had a nervous breakdown and spent 2.5 weeks in a hospital trying to “come back.” Unfortunately, once these nervous breakdowns happen, they will continue and they will become more frequent as the Alzheimer’s progresses. And over the course of the past two weeks, he has been headed towards another breakdown. My Mom and I are doing everything in our power to slow this one down. We know there is no stopping it, but if we could slow it down that would be a relief. He has a doctor appointment Tuesday to see what else we can do.

Needless to say, these past few weeks have been beyond stressful. And that stress has led to Ozzy having two seizures in the past three weeks. So it seems that despite the fact that I wake up each day, hoping, wishing, dreaming and praying for peace… peace is not meant to be for my home. By the time night falls, I am unbelievably exhausted and drained, that even the thought of looking at the computer leaves me cross-eyed. (Oh and don’t let me forget to mention that the season of fireworks officially started last night, with a surprise performance at 11pm.)

I offer you all my sincerest apologies and I hope that you will all understand my absence over these past few weeks. Please take note, over the course of the next 48hrs, I will be posting my 10 reviews that I have for you and answering all of my emails. Then next week, the quotes, author interviews and reviews will all be back as normal.

Due to the overwhelming stress in my life, there will be some changes to the site. The most significant change is that I will no longer be accepting review requests, until I have caught up on all current books from The List. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause authors, but I promise this will only be temporary. Once I have substantially caught up and/or my life has found a routine, I will re-open the Review Requests. Another change was made earlier today, when I updated both Lists and bolded the ‘Started Reading’ next to each of the books that I am currently reading, so it should be easier to see what I am reading. Over the weekend, I will be updating the sidebars to include book giveaways and/or author contests for readers to participate in.

In the meantime, let’s focus on the positive and discuss what everyone is reading. Right now, I am reading The Quest for Juice and Defending Jacob. What are you reading on this fine Friday night and how has your March been?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Enjoy!

What are you reading?

Hi Everyone,

After spending the other day, getting the new site up and running, I decided to spend the next two days reading. This morning, boys and I curled up and gathered the books, and read a total of 10 pages, before we were interrupted. (figures.) I am currently reading The Book Thief for My Sister’s Books and Other Systems from The List. What are you all reading? Do you have any special holiday themed books planned for next week?

I just wanted to take a quick minute and thank you all again for your continued support. I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful night!

Enjoy!

Well… HELLO September!!!

Hi Everyone,

How are you? Sorry I have been quiet this past week and a half. The last week of August flew by and left my head spinning. However they were productive on the home front and one major boulder has been lifted off our shoulders. Thank goodness. However, the month of August was wretched for my family and it seems the large amount of stress that existed during that month, has now hit me like a ton of bricks. Either that or an end-of summer flu bug. Yuk! I logged onto the computer today and realized that my absence has caused my emails to back up tremendously. If you are waiting to hear back from me, please know that I am working on getting caught up on all emails today. My deepest apologies for the delay. I also have a review that I need to type up and will hopefully have that posted for you tonight.

I can’t tell you how relieved I was to say goodbye to August and welcome September with open arms. Also, which almost seems like perfect timing for my family, this month is Alzheimer’s Awareness month. Please be aware of the early warning signs and symptoms and please help spread the word, in hopes of a cure. If it runs in your family, take time to make a game plan with your family, just in case, before it is too late. On a lighter note… I am still working with the winners of the Big Giveaway, however, I will be posting the answers to all of the games tomorrow. Thank you all for your patience, understand and your support. You all are amazing. Thank you!

Here’s to a happy and peaceful autumn for us all.

What about you? Are you excited to welcome a change in seasons or do wish to live the last few weeks of summer to the fullest?

Enjoy!

Good Morning Everyone

Hi Everyone,

Happy Saturday. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I wanted to give you all a quick update on the BIG Giveaway. The second winner, Amanda, did contact me and she selected the majority of the prizes. Since there are still a couple left, I have sent an email to the original winner, Melissa, who did not contact me before. Melissa has until 7pm tomorrow to contact me to claim her prizes, otherwise a new name will be drawn tomorrow night. As soon as all the prizes have been claimed I will then post all of the answers to the characters, poems and quotes.

Thank you all again for making the 1 year Birthday party a big success. I look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with all of you in the future! Thank you for your continuous support. Have a wonderful weekend!

I need your help, please…

Hi Everyone,

How is your weekend going? I hope you are reading some good books!

If you have a few seconds, I could really use your help. I noticed yesterday that my sidebars are not appearing on the side of the home page. (They are now located at the bottom of the home page, resulting in uneven posts and a big white gap.) However, the sidebar information (Hello World, Facebook, Twitter, Categories, Search, etc) is visible in the correct place on other pages. I sent a message to the support team, but haven’t heard back yet. So here’s where you guys come in.

If you have a second, could you please look at a page or two on my site, then click back on the Home page. I have included a question/poll in this post to make it easier to compile the results. If you notice anything strange about the sidebars or if everything is working perfect for you, could you please check off your answer.

Thank you very much for taking a minute to help me figure this situation out. I hope to have it resolved as soon as possible.

Thanks again. Have a wonderful day!

Enjoy!
