Blog Tour: A Woman Scorned by Rebecca Howie

 


Returning home days after leaving town wasn’t a decision Sam Beckett made lightly, and the newspaper articles detailing her shooting aren’t making her choice any easier to accept.
When a therapist is found dead in her office, Sam decides to work with CID and Detective Marshall on the case, hoping that the dead woman’s troubles will be enough to help her forget her own. but with Dr Weiss’ perfect image slowly crumbling as the investigation progresses, Sam finds that she isn’t the only person hiding behind a lie, and that uncovering someone else’s could have been what led Dr Weiss to her death.


Today’s blog stop you will find a Holiday inspired character interview, I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to comment and share as much as you’d like. Enjoy.

Happy Book Birthday, K.M. Robinson!

So, you may have remembered the post I did about a rap, [remember this gem?] inspired by K.M. Robinson’s book, Golden. Today is the book birthday for her second release JADED, a dystopian young adult novel that is truly a rollercoaster.


 

I’ve read it, I’ve reviewed it [look HERE,] and here are some reasons why I think you should read it!

Silent Sea Chronicles

The Lost Sentinel – Book 1

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?

Kalaya is controlled by the Assembly – set up to govern but now under the control of Rathnor, who is intent on persecuting those who have magic, many of whom have taken refuge in the Turrak Mountains.

Tei has been raised to hide her magic, until her father, Migil, is visited by an old friend who warns them that they must seek refuge in the mountains.

On the journey, an enemy attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He sees her into the care of two exiles, Rike and Garrick, and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession that changes Tei’s life.

Tei must put her trust in these strangers, especially when mysterious Masked Riders seem determined to stop her reaching Turrak.

Struggling with self-doubt, Tei joins the exiles in their search for their lost Sentinel. But the Masked Riders want the Sentinel too, and time, as well as hope, is running out.

Can Tei help the exiles save the island magic and reunite the Kalayan people before their ignorance destroys them all?

Excerpt:

 

The Lost Sentinel – Excerpt

 

She turned to her father and studied his profile. Worry lines creased his face and she realised he’d aged in the last few days. ‘Father, I’m sorry…’

‘Shh…’ he whispered as he scanned the tightly-packed hedge of rhododendrons.

He stopped abruptly and closed his eyes. After a few anxious moments, he cursed under his breath and hurried forward. ‘Stay close to me,’ he said over his shoulder.

Tei rushed to catch him up. ‘What’s going on?’

He checked the hedge again. ‘We’re being watched.’

The air around them crackled and the sky darkened. On the path ahead, a tree burst into flames and birds scattered from its branches squawking in alarm.

She gasped and clutched her father’s arm.

‘That was a warning.’ He dumped his bags and unsheathed his sword.

Tei drew her knife and stood facing the barrier of rhododendrons. She glanced at her father; his mouth was set in a hard line and he clasped the sword with a steady grip.

‘What’s happening?’

He tensed and she turned back to the bushes, seeing large yellow eyes peering out from the gloom of dense foliage. The eyes locked onto her and she heard a piercing howl.

Tei stood paralysed. The knife tumbled from her slackened fingers and struck the earth at her feet. She willed herself to move, but her body refused to bend to retrieve the fallen weapon.

‘It’s only a spell…’ Her father’s words filtered through, but the fear was too great to suppress.

‘Show yourself,’ he shouted.

Still Tei couldn’t turn from the creature’s gaze.

‘There’s no need for tricks. I know you for what you are.’

The beast’s laughter sounded strangely human, though the revelation couldn’t shake Tei from the spell.

Leaves rustled as the beast shifted closer. Tei braced herself for the sight of it, but it remained in the shadows, allowing her only a glimpse of its outline.

‘Hand over the girl, old man. You don’t need to die today.’

‘Back down or it will be you that dies,’ her father said.

A hand broke though the shadows and sparks sprang from its fingertips.

Her father shoved her aside and deflected the blast with his sword. Tei stumbled and slammed against the ground, the breath knocked from her lungs. Just before she passed out, she saw a man emerge from the trees.

Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her hugely encouraging husband and two children.

She wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. She discovered the fantasy genre in her late teens and has never looked back. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream – even if he does occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.

Suzanne loves gardening and has a Hebe (shrub) fetish. She enjoys cooking with ingredients from the garden, and regularly feeds unsuspecting guests vegetable-based cakes.

She collects books, loves going for walks and picnics with the children and sharing with them her love of nature and photography.

Suzanne is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles. But most of she likes to escape with a great film, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.

Blog Tour: A Space Between Worlds by J.D. Woodson

Songstress Shanti’s final performance is no different than any other. Gazing into the mirror, the Songstress laments her faceless curse. To hide her unsightliness, she dons a beautiful mask. She knows she doesn’t belong in the darkness. Her desire is to live in a world of eternal light, to be seen for who she truly is.

An enigmatic man who calls himself Avidia beckons Shanti, claiming to know how to conceive the world of light sleeping inside of her, and escape her current world of darkness, Cauraaha. Avidia poses the question that will be the key to her desire, as well as an unresolved pain:

“What is your first memory?”

Reno, a gentle florist, has his own stigma, a translucent coil of thorns wrapped around his arm, draining him of life at the utterance of the word “Promise”. Hidden away in his heart is the knowledge of a past he doesn’t wish to face, one that connects to Shanti, Avidia, and her curse.

A dual narrative of introspection and self-discovery, A Space Between Worlds eloquently questions the truths of life and death, timeless bonds, and regret through lyrical imagination, philosophy, surrealism, and a journey through the unconscious mind.
