The Lazarus Child by Jay Raven / #Interview #BlogTour @rararesources @JayRavenAuthor

:

Blood Riders Book 3

To save his missing daughter a distraught slayer must venture deep into the heart of darkness

Legendary vampire hunter Anton Yoska is on the edge, tormented by the rumour that the precious child he once thought dead is still alive and lost in a world of monsters.

One creature alone knows for sure what happened to Gretchen, but Terek Modjeski won’t divulge his secret – revelling in the twisted power over his long-time foe.

Despairing and drinking heavily, Anton stumbles from near disaster to near disaster as he puts his team in jeopardy, testing their friendship and loyalty to snapping point.

Only one diabolical solution is possible – to confront Terek in his maximum security cell and force the bloodsucker to end his game of cat and mouse. But making the cunning infernal talk will mean employing brutal methods that go against every code Anton has ever lived by, forcing him to become as much of a demon as the leeches he hunts.

Face to face with the evil, taunting vampire, the desperate slayer takes a decision that will change his destiny forever – sending him hurtling into danger to confront a terrifying truth about his lost child that risks not only his sanity but the future of mankind.

:

:

Q&A

– Which character would you like to be in this book?

I shouldn’t really admit it, but the hero – vampire hunter Anton Yoska  – is a romanticised version of me. He embodies the bravery and noble streaks I’d like to have, if I wasn’t so selfish, lazy and constantly anxious.

–  Do you always take a book/ereader wherever you go?

No, sometimes I like to stay as far away from  words as possible. It’s difficult to read a story without critiquing it or comparing my style to the author’s. In fact, I know I’ve found a truly talented author when I can take off  my critic’s hat and just be sucked into the joy of the plot and characters. At other times, reading can feel like doing homework!  

– Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?

The baddie every time. They get the best lines, the most dramatic deaths and are never boring or easily ignored. When I’m writing my villains, I try to give them some endearing or likeable quality – I love the conflict this creates for the readers. Even when a baddie is thoroughly evil, I like to show that this is the result of some incident that changed their destiny or attitudes. The most compelling villains are noble people who’ve gone over to the dark side.  

– Do you prefer to read/write standalones or a series?

As a reader I prefer a series and I can perfectly understand why someone would want to continue spending time with characters they’ve come to know and love. But as a writer, I’d go for a standalone every time. Trying to develop a character over several books is hard work, as is making sure you haven’t repeated anything from a previous instalment or contradicted something you said two books earlier.  

However, as I have now fallen in love with the characters in Blood Riders (I have a particular soft spot for Quintz) I am looking forward to writing their next adventure  – as, like everyone else, I want to know what happens next!

– Where can I find you when you are reading?

In bed, mostly. I can’t get to sleep unless I’ve read for half an hour. It calms my mind after a hectic day. Before all the lockdowns, I’d have also said I read on long plane and train journeys.

In terms of era and location, I love Terry Pratchett Discworld stories and anything set during the Napoleonic Wars – especially on board Royal Navy ships. I tend not to read anything set in Transylvania as I spend too much time there already.            

 – Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?

Watching movies on TV or listening to music – everything from ‘80s classics to Lindsey Stirling pop violin tracks. If you’re lucky you’ll find me baking. There is always cake in our house. Not good for the diet!

– Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?

Only because I do the vast majority of my reading on my Kindle Fire. But like most people I find bookshops mysterious and alluring places and love going into them when I’m buying gifts for others.

– What are you most proud of?

For a great number of years I was a short story writer, so having my first novel  Crimson Siege accepted for publication was a huge thrill. As was the first time I had a short story broadcast on BBC Radio 4. There’s nothing to compare to having an actor bring your words to life.

– What goes through your mind when you see your new book in your hands for the first time?

I should say joy and pride, but normally it’s just relief. It can be such a long, tiring slog to write a novel that holding the physical book presents tangible evidence that you made it to the finish line!  The real buzz comes from seeing positive reviews and getting emails from readers, knowing that they’ve loved the story and characters.

 – What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Two pieces of advice.

1/Don’t believe all you read about “overnight success” authors hitting the big time. Most have been slogging away unnoticed for a decade or more learning and honing their craft. It takes time, dedication and effort to achieve success – and getting loads of rejections along the way is all part of the journey.

2/ Readers make up their mind what they think of your story in the first few sentences. Catch their attention, enflame their emotions and pique their curiosity. Start with something imminent and exciting. We’re in the drama business – be dramatic.

About the author

Growing up, Tim Parson’s dad was a minister and due to his job the family moved various times. Born in Worcester, Tim Parsons currently resides with his wife and two sons in Rochester, Kent. Though he never really saw himself as an author, one of the biggest driving forces behind his success is a teacher who told him he’d never succeed.

The idea of the Paramedic Chris books came to Parsons one night when he came home from a night shift. He thought to himself, “You have things like Fireman Sam, but nothing for ambulance service.” Straight away he began writing down notes from jobs he attended with the ambulance service and turned them into stories for children. Filled with bright and cheerful illustrations, and based on real life events, the books are aimed for children ages 4-10.

Part of the reason for this age group with the stories is because Parsons wants to help educate the younger generation so they understand the importance of the ambulance service and the correct way to use them. The Paramedic Chris books acquaint children with what goes on in the ambulance service, as well as teaching what a valuable asset they are to the community.

The newest episode, A Sorry Bully, will give children another important lesson. It’s based on a visit to a local primary school for children to see the inside of an ambulance. One of the children ends up getting pushed and makes it so the rest of the children cannot see the inside. It teaches how the things you do and say affect other people. There’s also a big lesson on courage where the child is sorry for his actions

Paramedic Chris books have been receiving great reviews and Parsons is delighted and thankful for all the support. “The reviews make me want to continue writing more stories and aiming to help others more,” he says. One of the best comments he’s received so far was from a parent who regularly takes their child to appointments at the local hospital. They take the books with them each time they have to go because they help calm her son, especially when he hears the sirens.

With the Paramedic Chris books, Parsons hopes to spread the message for children to learn the correct ways to call an ambulance and not abuse the system, as well as how to love and care for one another. “I am hoping readers will be made aware of how hard my colleagues work within the ambulance service and can share respect to one another as a result,” he says. As simple values, such as respect, have declined in our current society, Parsons’ aim is to give back to the communities by helping rebuild respect in children so that they grow up to be loving and caring adults, making our communities better places to live.

With so many story lines ready and different subjects being recommended to Parsons, we’re sure to be seeing more delightful Paramedic Chris books helping children learn valuable lessons about the ambulance service, as well as caring for those in our communities.

Traigh by Gwen Ineson / #Review @AustinMacauley

When we got a new sheep dog, we had no idea what an impact it would have on our lives. Sheep dogs have always been a part of my life and lifestyle; they have all been a pleasure to own, but this one, well, this one was different. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a soppy person, but to say I was proud of him would be an understatement.

Review

What is more fun than being able to go and pick out a new puppy? It’s heaven for a dog lover. It’s exiting and sometimes I wonder who chooses who in fact. 😉

Having a dog is just wonderful. How you can teach him things and communicate with him brings joy every day.

In this book the author tells the story through the eyes of Traigh. It’s about his life with his humans. The humans are certain they are the ones being in command but I think dogs have us trained as well. We teach them how to make us see that they have to go outside for example, but as soon as they give us the sign, we jump up to open the door. LOL. It’s something that I only realized while reading this book.

I recognized certain situations in my own dog’s behavior. The look in his eyes when I make a joke and I am convinced that I see him thinking: ‘What on earth are you talking about’. 🙂

Spending time with your dog is golden, but there are also sad moments. My previous dog died almost 15 months ago and it still hurts. I have a new one now and I love him to bits, but you never forget the other one(s). 

This is a great story that warmed and broke my heart at the same time. 5 stars

Thank you, Gwen Ineson and Austin Macauley Publishers

Mind Reader by Kirsty McManus / #Review @McmanusKirsty

Kellan Gallo can predict soulmates. Operating out of the nightclub Heaven Sent, his charming reputation and impressive accuracy rate are legendary.

But when Kellan meets stem cell scientist Beatrix Mackenzie, he wonders if his time might be better spent pursuing a more meaningful profession.

After a lucky interview with an employment agency, Kellan suddenly finds himself working as Beatrix’s intern. But with Beatrix convinced Kellan is a fraud, he wonders whether embarking on a career in science might be incompatible with his future happiness.

***

Beatrix Mackenzie lives her life by the facts. She loves her job as a scientist because of the clear-cut answers it can provide. So when she meets Kellan, she is reluctant to fall for his act.

However, Kellan quickly proves himself to be an intelligent, and oh-so-attractive adversary, causing Beatrix to question everything she knows.

Can two people with such differing worldviews find common ground?

If they’re soulmates, it might just be possible.

Review

A mind reader… yeah right. That’s what a lot of people would think. They are convinced that person must be a fraud because reading someone’s mind is impossible. You might sometimes guess what they think because of their body language but that’s only that: a (lucky) guess.

But on the other hand a certain amount of people do believe it’s possible and it might be dangerous, because they might start leading their lives in function of those things that were predicted.

In which category do I belong? Well, I am certain that some people do have a gift and can see/feel things others cannot, but I would never have my mind read by someone. I know I would feel influenced by it. I will wait and see what happens or does not happen  🙂

Everybody would like to find their soulmate and have a happy life. But what is a soulmate? Is it someone that loves everything you love too or is it someone who loves you the way you are? I guess that’s something that’s different for each and every person. 

I would say that everybody has to do what they feel is right for them. Consult a mind reader or not? As long as you keep an open mind there is nothing wrong with it.

To answer a question: Can two people who are total opposites be each other’s soulmates? In my opinion: yes, why not!

A lovely story with a bit of suspense in the mix. I really enjoyed it. 5 stars

Thank you, Kirsty McManus

Or, you’ve got a few smart devices and you want to know how to make them work together so you can make the most of them. Perhaps you’ve been tinkering for years and want to take your home automation to the next level. If any of these sentences describe you, then this book is for you.

Before She Wakes by Ed James / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @edjamesauthor

:

Detective Max Carter #3

Single mother Marissa stands in her daughter’s untidy room. Olivia’s phone is still charging at the wall and her clothes are still hanging in her closet. The mirror above her daughter’s desk is cracked and a message written in red ink reads ‘Never Forget’.

When the investigation into Olivia’s disappearance makes local headlines, people begin to gossip about the missing teenager and it soon becomes clear she had been lying to her mother for a long time. Not only did she have a secret boyfriend, but she had also been talking to her guidance counsellor constantly in the weeks before she disappeared. What was so big that Olivia couldn’t tell?

And when a blood test reveals that Marissa was drugged the night Olivia went missing, fingers point at Marissa’s estranged husband, but he too has vanished without trace. Could a long-buried family secret have put the teenager’s life in danger? And will the truth be revealed before it’s too late for the missing girl?

:

:

Review

The third book in the series and they keep getting better and better.

Agent Max Carter already received some devastating news in the previous book and now the story continuous, but that’s not the only thing on his mind. He also has to deal with another abduction.

The search for leads can begin but every time he turns a corner he seems to find himself at a dead end. People are lying through their teeth. Others seem to be dead or have disappeared. Max does not give up but he knows the clock is ticking. His goal is to find the child of course, but he wants them found alive. That’s why you have to use everything that is available in order to crack the case wide open. Not everything is what it seems. That is something you should never forget.

Will we find out what happened to Max all those years ago or will we still be kept in the dark?

This book had the FBI running in circles. I enjoyed it a lot. 5 stars

Hunting Hidden Shadows by Elisabeth Huerta / #Extract #BlogTour @LoveBooksGroup

:

Nefeli. Strong, powerful, and feared by most. She makes sure order and peace exist between the races, but when mutilated women corpses turn up, she is on the hunt to find the culprit. Nothing can distract her, not even the painfully attractive daemon who is trying to kill her.

:

:

Extract

The tall trees and high rocks provide perfect cover for the night. Up in the trees I cannot
be sensed, and it gives me an advantage for the hunt. The soft sound of hooves and wheels
hitting the ground below alerted me of strangers passing. A wagon was being pulled by a horse,
about three humans are huddled inside bracing the cold. The current prey is not entertaining
enough, humans are weak, and do not offer any challenge.
The one I was looking for hid himself well. I could sense him nearby, but he did not make
a sound despite his large size. His footsteps were nimble. The wagon disappeared up ahead as the
darkness thickened. I turned around and looked in all directions, as I hunted him, he also hunted
me in this endless cycle of hunter and prey.
Sudden heat hit me from behind, I was just able to dodge the spell the daemon threw at
me. Damianos was a powerful daemon, killing him would send a warning to all the others, it
would tell them that even though I am smaller, I was not weaker. I had never lost a fight against
the other daemons. I had been hunted since I was little. I was seen as inferior because my shape
was similar to a human. I was not big like the other daemons, or as large, but my strength was
equal to theirs, and my speed went beyond.
My magic was powerful, I made sure to practice every day so that there would be no one
to match it. Being hunted, being the prey for so many years made me strong, it made me adapt to
my surroundings, it made me learn to survive, it made me unstoppable.

Another Life by Owen W Knight / #Extract #BlogTour @LoveBooksGroup @OwenKnightUK

:

Imagine if we could combine dreams and reality in a world where we live forever. Oliver believes his life to be one of disappointment and failure. Haunted by the memory of a mysterious woman he encountered thirty years ago, and obsessed with finding her, he embarks on a strange journey of grief, hope, myths and legends where dreams and truth merge.

:

:

Extract

I HAVE DREAMS
I know they are dreams, yet I see nothing outside of them.
I live in a black hole with no contact with the world. This must be like what it would be to wake
up blind: to open your eyes and expect to see something. You see nothing; everything is inside
your head. You have forgotten what to do to see and try to remember what it is you are not
doing.
There is a light above me that changes. I can see it with my eyes closed. Is this part of the
dream? It’s like looking out from a spaceship to the surface of a planet whose gaseous clouds
swirl slowly, continuously; marbling the surface below.
I see a woman, a beautiful woman. She bears a resemblance to my daughter, but she is not my
daughter.
She is beckoning. I want to follow her. I know that it will be a one-way journey.
I am afraid.
Ever since I can remember, I have been blessed (or cursed) with the ability to imagine objects
and places that I have never seen or visited. When conditions are ideal (I shall explain this later)
a comprehensive image will lodge itself at the centre of my brain’s consciousness: threedimensional, in colour and alive.
