Blog Tour: Trace and Vibe/Sync + Exclusive Author Interview with Letitia L. Moffitt

Title: Trace (TraceWorld Book 1) Author: Letitia L. Moffitt Genre: Sci-Fi Book Description: She knows what happens when you die. Nola Lantry is a tracist: she can sense the particles of energy that are released when the human body expires. It’s a somewhat gruesome ability, but Nola uses it to bring some meaning to her otherwise drab life in upstate New York by assisting the Redfort Police Department on missing person cases. When the richest man in town, Culver Bryant, disappears, Nola finds herself in the middle of a case that is both baffling and increasingly dangerous, the danger appearing in the form of death threats as well as the missing man’s brother, Grayson. Does Grayson Bryant pursue Nola to seduce her or to stop her—and why does Nola feel a connection with him despite her mistrust?   Title: Vibe/Sync (TraceWorld Book 2) Author: Letitia L. Moffitt Genre: Sci-Fi Book […]

Blog Tour: The M.B.S. Guild + Exclusive Author Interview with Chris Parker

Title: The Son of Light Book 2: The M.B.S. Guild Author: Chris Parker Genre: Fantasy Despite having the worst birthday in his life, sixteen year old Joshua Suzuki finally gets his birthday wish—to get out of his house in Porter Ranch, California, which he had spent a decade locked up in. But his wish would be an unusual one because he soon finds himself in an underground college, which belonged to secret organization, called the M.B.S. (Mind, Body, and Soul) Guild. This blows Josh’s mind. And what shocks him even more is that his twenty-six year old foster brother, Nickolas Suzuki, is the leader of the M.B.S. Guild. Nick wastes no time in telling Josh the horrible truth to why they’ve been in hiding for ten years — The Demon Lord, Hexen, has returned. Nick puts Josh in the protection of his crazy college friends to train him in the […]

“The Word”: Bonus Q&A about The Duchess Inheritance

I was recently featured for another awesome interview by my pal, Jake, on his podcast, “The Word”. You can listen on Soundcloud, here: https://soundcloud.com/jakob-musick/the-word-ck-brooke-ii-the-duchess-inheritance/s-Ec5Z3. In the interest of time, there were a few questions he wanted to ask, but which we didn’t get to. So, I opted to answer them here on my blog. They are pretty much spoiler-free. Enjoy! Q: When Selu talks about omens or signs in Chapter 57, Bos chides her for her belief in “Lunology”. What is that and why does he oppose this? A: “Lunology” is like Halvea’s version of astrology. Except, instead of determining one’s fate by the stars, one’s fate is supposedly determined by the moon and its phases at the time of one’s birth. As I speak a lot about in the audio interview, Bos is a very devout and religious man. Just like how many traditional Judeo-Christian practitioners oppose astrology as an insult and offense to God, so […]

Goodreads: Ask the Author

The following is from a questionnaire I answered on Goodreads. For those without a Goodreads account (and perhaps for the sake of posterity), I wanted to share it here on my blog, as well. You can view the original post on Goodreads here.    How do you deal with writer’s block? To combat writer’s block, I make sure I have the whole story carefully outlined – every ‘i’ dotted and every ‘t’ crossed, so to speak – ahead of time. This way, I always know what I’m sitting down to write; it’s been planned out. All I have to do is expound. It prevents me from getting stuck in the story, and is a great hedge against writer’s block. What’s the best thing about being a writer? This is sort of like asking, “What’s the best thing about breathing?” LOL. I write for the same reason I breathe – because I can’t control […]
