Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

I’m not a fan of music on while I write. I find it distracting. I like to write in near silence but silence is impossible to find and almost eerie! But my husband is usually tapping away on his computer when I’m writing. There might be a fan going. I can often hear my kids in the background with the low murmur of a television or them squealing in the backyard while they chase each other with homemade lightsabers. As long as the sounds remains consistent, I’m usually good. It’s the sudden silence that scares me!

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

Several for sure! Books one, two and three were the start of a novel originally, but my editor suggested I pull them apart into novellas. I did, but it meant I had three books in various stages and then as soon as the first one was done, I was starting book four. And, between you and me, I actually have another book in the early stages of a draft. It takes place long after all of this. The before story started to really intrigues me though, so I set it aside for now. I want the readers to get to know this motley crew as kids before we see how they turn out. Of course, I might change my mind and resume working on both again at some point.

Pen or type writer or computer?

I love type writers. My nana had one and whenever I’d visit her, I’d beg to use it, even if I had nothing to write. She’d always let me and I’d smile at the thudding sound the letters made as they hit the paper. When it comes to writing though, it’s a computer for sure. My penmanship is so horrible I can barely read it, and I can type faster than I can print. Plus, I often end up rearranging my words and sentences far too much to feel productive on a piece of paper. A computer is more forgiving.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?

I think on some level I was always an author; it was just about how serious I was about it, how much time I spent doing it. Now I’m a published author, but I was still writing before that. I liked telling stories from a really young age. Over the years I spent more or less time working on my writing craft, but that desire was still always there.

In school I was always asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said writer for awhile, but teachers and counselors always pointed out how few people could be successful at that. Of course, it also used to be more difficult to get your book into the world as self-publishing wasn’t as much of an option. Amazon, among other things, has certainly made that easier.

I had a fear of rejection that really stopped me from pushing at the path of being an author. It took years to come back around to it, and I absolutely think it was the right decision. If you want to do something, you should do it. If writing doesn’t work out in the big scheme of things for me, I can’t imagine regretting I tried. I’ve had some great feedback from people who loved the characters. Even if not everyone likes the book or the characters (and they won’t), getting to share that world with people, creating something strangers have picked up and read, that’s an amazing thing.

The Awakening of Artemis – Blog Tour #Dystopian

The Awakening of Artemis

by John Calia

Genre: Dystopian

Orphaned and disillusioned about her career, Diana Gutierrez-Adams is on a routine military assignment when she and her team are kidnapped by a domestic militia. She learns from her captors that her cryogenically-frozen grandfather is at the center of a high-stakes caper to steal technology for greed and great fortune. Challenged by the conspiracy and pulled by emotions she doesn’t fully understand, Diana begins a rescue mission that will change her life.

Set in 2049 America — a world where the elites make all the rules and artificial intelligence enforces them – the real danger is that the technology will be lost in the ensuing chaos. With her life under threat, Diana is forced into a desperate bid to escape, taking with her Gabrielle, her soulmate and the one person she knows she can trust.

To evade a devious enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Diana and Gabrielle must outsmart the global monitoring systems that tracks their every move. On a trail littered with the dystopian remains of middle-class America, they will come face-to-face with an artificial intelligence that threatens the future of all humankind.

What happens to her is unexpected, perhaps miraculous – an adventure that embraces all her hopes for finding her true self and her place in a world dominated by powerful elites and even more powerful artificial intelligence.

The Descendants – Blog Tour

 

 

The Descendants

The Descendants Book 1

by Destiny Hawkins

Genre: Dark Dystopian Fantasy 

 

Fail the tests and become a slave. Display defectiveness and be put to death.

Monroe Academy was built to separate the weak from the strong. Pass the biyearly leveling and be released into society upon graduation. Fail to be promoted and be stripped of rank and forced into servitude. That was a rule that applied to all but Rayah Bardeau. A student of Monroe Academy, branded as a Null because of her absence of Lighter energy.

With her mother standing as a slave in her place, Rayah was given until the age of twenty to make level six, but at nineteen-years-old and with only eight months until her twentieth birthday, she was only a mere level one. The same level she’s been since she was ten. With the stress of her upcoming test, the loss of a friend, and the constant wrongdoings towards her, Rayah could only dream of escaping from Lytonia, and escape she did. Only, when she awakened in her dorm, she couldn’t distinguish if she had only dreamt of meeting Soren, a wild and adventurous defect in the Wild Lands, or if she had somehow used her Lighter Form to get there.

But only the elite ― the most powerful of Lighters ― could tap into their Lighter Forms. Right? And what was the dark energy she used when she and Soren were attacked by Depleters? Was Rayah really as powerless as she thought? Was she a defect? And if she used dark energy, could she call herself a Lighter at all?

Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a gripping dark fantasy where a powerless girl must survive in a society that doesn’t accept the weak…or the defective.

Content Advisory: The following book contains vivid depictions of violence and death. Reader discretion is advised.

The Calling

The Descendants Series Book 2

 

She was given a second chance to prove that she could fall in line, but with her lack of power, that would be impossible. 

Rayah’s entire life, she’d always been different from everyone else, and in Lytonia, being different was treated as a crime, but in her case, she was granted a pass. In only a few months, she had to present her abilities to the council and prove to them that she was worthy of walking the halls of Monroe Academy, but Artemis, her tormentor and superior officer, would stop at nothing to keep her from excelling. Being powerless and not proving herself meant that she would be transitioned into a slave, and Artemis would become her master. What Rayah realized was that she wasn’t as powerless as she thought. For weeks she had been able to do things that only the elite lighters could do, and even though this meant that she was strong, it made her more different than she could have ever imagined. Rayah went from being weak to possibly being as strong as a Gods Daughter, and she couldn’t tell anyone. The standard colors of a Lytonians powers are white, royal blue, and turquoise blue. Hers were black… 

Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the second installment of a gripping dark fantasy where a powerless girl must survive in a society that doesn’t accept the weak…or the defective.

Hell is just a place on earth, right? For Lucy, this couldn’t be any closer to the truth.

After a trip to the pound, where a small, scrappy black cat befriends her, a rapid series of events thrusts Lucy—literally—into the complicated world of Hell.

Lucy will need to learn to rely on others and use the help offered to her by an alluring demon and a ragtag team of misfits in order to save Hell before it’s ripped apart by all manners of depraved, ruthless enemies.

But letting her guard down was her first mistake.

In a race against her own future, Lucy must trust her instincts now more than ever. And if she wants to stand a chance at restoring Hell and her reign, she also needs to tread carefully around familiar faces. If there is one thing she knows all too well, it’s that not everyone is as they seem.

Μόνο ένα Λάθος

Ο Κόουλ, ο βάρδος, πιστεύει ότι η ζωή του έχει πάρει άσχημη τροπή, αλλά ακόμη δεν έχει γνωρίσει τον Αρχηγό των Κλεφτών. Μία απερίσκεπτη ιδέα για να κερδίσει χρήματα προκειμένου να εξοφλήσει το χρέος του και να ξεφύγει από ένα σκοτεινό παρελθόν, φέρνει τον τροβαδούρο σε μία κατάσταση χωρίς διαφυγή, με μία εξωφρενική συμφωνία. Θα επιβιώσει από το λάθος του; Και, άραγε, ποιος είναι αυτός ο μυστηριώδης ευεργέτης;

Σ’ έναν κόσμο όπου η μαγεία είναι παράνομη και τα ξωτικά σκλαβωμένα, θα τολμούσατε να ακούσετε τις ιστορίες των παλαιών; Πέντε ιστορίες, μυθικές και μαγικές.

 Το Φεγγάρι πάνω στο νερό: Μία ιστορία αγάπης ανάμεσα σε μία θεά και έναν πολεμιστή, και την τρομερή κατάρα που έφερε η αγάπη αυτή.

 Η ιστορία της Τρέινα της Αγαπημένης: Όταν μία θνητή διεκδικείται από δύο αντίζηλους θεούς, ακόμη κι οι ουρανοί βάλλονται από τη μαγεία.

Ο Θυελογέννητος: Ένας μοναχικός μάγος βρίσκει συντροφιά σ’ ένα πλάσμα της θύελλας. Αλλά η μαγεία έχει ένα τίμημα, ποιο θα είναι αυτό;

Το Μπλε Φιαλίδιο: Ένα μάθημα ότι πρέπει κανείς να ακούει προσεκτικά τις οδηγίες που του δίνονται, αλλιώς μπορεί να οδηγηθεί σε κάποιο ντροπιαστικό λάθος.

Ο Θρύλος της Ελιάνα: Μία νύμφη, ένας βάτραχος, μαγεία ποτισμένη με ζήλια και χρέη που ξεπληρώνονται.
