Blog Swap with "Zarconian Island" author, Aja Hannah

Image
The lovely Aja Hannah graciously agreed to host me on her blog, and so, while I'm there today, she's here. She has a book due out soon Zarconian Island, that piques my interest on many levels. I can't wait 'til it's out :)



My stomach knotted tighter, winding so hard it hurt. Kate watched me, rubbing a piece of her hair between two fingers. I bit my tongue, trying to work the words out. "The boat …we're going under.”
Possessing powers that are feared and shunned, eighteen-year-old Alexandra “Attie” Hotep is no virgin to attacks. Her ancestors, the Zarconians-- mixed-blood inhabitants of Atlantis--were rumored to be the English fairies who kidnapped children, the Caribbean sirens that sunk ships, and the dream-like apparitions who broke into psyches. By the 1850s, they were hunted to near-extinction, leaving the existence of Atlantis and Zarconians little more than myth.

When a class trip turns deadly, Attie and her friends become stranded on an uncharted tropi…

BAM
Behind the Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where Gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess lives.

Quinn Sinclair is clueless to who she is. She thinks she's an ordinary young woman—well, mostly ordinary—living an ordinary life with her less than loving mother in Conifer, Colorado. On the night of her birthday, Quinn finds herself betrayed by a man who sends her life spinning out-of-control.

As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she finds herself transported into a Magykal battle forever changing her life.

Arik Morgaine—Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn Sinclair for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers. Can …

Bloggity-blog-blog . . . Buried Tour & general griping XD

So, as of last night (at roughly 11:15-11:20, EST), I officially sent the FINAL version of Buried to my publisher. Anyone who read the story as a serial will be pleased to know that what was originally 1 chapter of additional content not released during the serial run, has become 2 chapters. The second one is actually something readers had asked about; It's a scene that was initially referenced by Cadence in hindsight, but not written out, so it didn't veer away from the original story at all-I want that part clear. If it wasn't something I'd planned, myself, or that technically happened, anyway, I wouldn't have written it. I don't want to be thought of as an author who caves to her readers, 'cause, let's if a writer becomes a puppet for their readers, they serve no real purpose. That's when you might as well just shift gears and become a ghost writer, ya know?

Alright, that bit of griping is not why I started this post today, lol. Um, as previously…

Not sure what else to do for today, lol. I know a lot of 'bloggers' have their material ready in advance and just load it the day they want to post it. Not I, but then, I'm barely a blogger. I just sort of sit down and type whatever when I remember to, that is.

So, I thought I'd share some stuff going on with other authors working with my publisher, Curiosity Quills Press.


1) Wilde's Fire(Darkness Falls, Book One) By Krystal Wade is currently FREE on Amazon.com.


2) The Gathering Darkness by Lisa Collicut now has a very nicely done book trailer (shout out here to Courtney Worth Young, who handles these things, lovely job, lady ;D). The trailer can be viewed here.



3) The Charge by Sharon Bayliss released on March 2nd and is doing incredibly well in the genre of Alternative History (currently #72 in the Kindle Store for paid).

4) Jessa Russo, author of Ever (The Ever Trilogy) is gearing up to release book two, Evade, in the ghostly series.

5) Jamie Ayres brings life le…
