Whipser Release Day Blitz

 
Whisper  by Heather Hildenbrand
New Adult Paranormal Fantasy

The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned , love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms.

Now, after five month s at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer. A time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do. So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Poin t, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic sta res or drunken class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuff ed not with identification but with poetry illustratin g the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I wi ll not leave this boy’s side.

Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet...

Blog Roll - My Writing Process

I was invited by Stacey Marie Brown and Bethany Lopez to participate in a Blog Roll answering questions about my writing/process. Check out Bethany and Stacey's answers by clicking on their names.

1) What am I working on right now?

I just finished the first draft of Hunting Season, AuroraSky: Vampire Hunter, Vol. 4… meaning I’m EDITING! I also have some backstory to fill on Francesco “Fane” Donado (ie: Research!) I gathered up a stack of books at the library on Venice, Italy. In particular, I’m interested in The Plague around the 17th & 18th century.
 

2) How does my work differ from others in the genre?

The moment you tell someone you wrote a vampire book, you get the look or the tone, “Oh, another vampire book.” (Real original.) I constantly challenge myself to put a new twist on whatever subject I write about so no, it’s not just another vampire or witch book.

For Aurora Sky, I found inspiration in “Vampire Forensics” by Mark Collins Jenkins. The idea started with vampirism being a disease. I wanted it to be more sci-fi than fantasy, something that at least sounded remotely possible.

For the Spellbound Trilogy magic is more mind over matter than woo-woo spells and chanting. And it backfires… a lot, which is so much fun.

 
3) Why do I write what I do?

I read and write to escape the real world. For me, that means spending time in fantasy worlds where there’s magic and supernatural creatures or kickass female spies who save the day. I love shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Charlie’s Angels and Alias. I write what I love.
 
 

4) How does my writing process work?

Before I begin each new book, I handwrite notes and a rough outline in a journal. I’d probably be better off researching ahead of time, but I’m too impatient so I research along the way—for example, 2/3rds of Spellbound #3 (Enchantment) took place in Barcelona. I’ve never been there so I had to do a lot of reading up and looking through online photos. In Northern Bites, Aurora Sky, Vol. 2, Aurora went on a mission in Sitka, another place I’ve never been. I like to read a mix of history, travel and fiction books set in those areas to get a feel for them.
 
 
Mornings are my best time to write and are most productive if I can have five solid interrupted hours, which are hard to come by.

 ***

That’s a little peek into my process. Check out the author I tagged, Danielle Young, next Monday for an inside look into her writing process. Last month, Young published her first book, Guided (The Jade Ring Series Book 1).

Audible Aurora and Live Interview with Narrator

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter is now available in audiobook!


Em Eldridge did an incredible job narrating. I found myself laughing out loud and especially loved the British accent she gave Joss. At first it was strange listening to a voice that didn't match the one inside my head, but about 5 minutes in, I became completely immersed and was so very pleased and entertained by the audio experience. I have a whole new appreciation for what it takes to read an entire book out loud with emotion, the right pacing and different accents - male and female!

A Look Inside Fated: 5 NA Paranormal Novels

I'm excited! This is the first bundle I've ever organized/been part of. All the titles included are fantastic because I handpicked them. I wanted page-turners.

Fated is just the thing for a summer book fling before it's back to sweaters, school and the whole fall/winter routine.

Rather than tell you what the titles are, why don't I show you?

In the order they appear in the bundle:

Amaranth by Rachael Wade

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Darkness of Light by Stacey Marie Brown

Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand
