Legion
Lost
By
K.C. Finn
Genre:
Dystopian
 
One
Underground girl escapes from a soldiers’ raid. Lost and above
ground for the very first time, she has only one option to secure her
survival: the Legion—a government organization for teenagers with
no place left to run. Leave your identity at the gate, and join a
life of military service until you reach adulthood. It sounds ideal,
but the Underground girl knows that the System won’t stop looking
for its female runaway. So, she tells a lie about her gender.
And
it will change her forever.
Posing
as Raja, a boy-soldier, the Underground girl is thrown into Legion
life at its full, brutal speed. Here, she meets Senior Commander
Briggs, whose savage authority reigns over the teenage soldiers.
Amongst them are a band of oddballs known as the South Tower Rejects,
led by Stirling, a tall, savvy stranger with bright copper hair and
eyes that shine like oceans. There’s something hiding behind his
cocky smile, and Raja wants to know what it is.

The
heart-wrenching sequel to Kindle Press’s LEGION LOST has arrived. As
our heroine Raja suffers with intense grief, her new identity as a
Highland rebel soldier is about to be put to the test. As part of an
intrepid rescue mission, she and her fellow Highlanders will travel
south to infiltrate the System itself, discovering the fresh horrors
that Governor Prudell has subjected her people to. Death, destruction
and all-out war awaits, and nothing can prepare them for the terror
of the truth.

K.
C. Finn was born and raised in Cardiff, South Wales, where her love
for storytelling grew at a precociously young age. After developing
the medical condition M.E. / C.F.S., Kim turned to writing to escape
the pressures of disabled living, only to become hooked on the
incredible world of publishing.
Kim
spends most of her time locked in the writing cave with an obscenely
large mug of tea. When not writing, she can be found pursuing her PhD
in Linguistics, watching classic British comedy, or concocting evil
schemes in the secret laboratory in her attic.

What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Finding time to write. Being an author is much different than being a writer. When I was just a writer, that was all I did, now that I have taken on the cap as Author, I find it harder to simply find time to write. There are so many other things to be doing to get your name known. Balance is the key, sometimes it becomes difficult to keep things balanced.

I agree with you 100%. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer? (more…)

PG13 Dark Author Interview for October…McKenna Gardner

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

McKenna, welcome, where are you from?

I currently hail from the Phoenix Metropolitan area, but I’ve lived in several different places in my life. I was born in Idaho, and have lived in California, Kentucky, and Arizona, but in about 25 different locations. And no, I wasn’t in the foster care system. 😀

Author Picture

Idaho is my neighboring state. If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit?

I have a bit of an obsession with the Regency era. I would like to visit there for a year as a working class citizen, then as an upper class member, then as one who would regularly attend court. And then I’d like to do it again.

 

LOL awesome, may I came with? If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which one would it be? What food would you serve? (more…)

Nichole Giles Author of DESCENDANT

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Nichole, it is nice to meet you. Tell us what is the working title of your book?

My book Descendant is being released this coming May.
What genre does your book fall under?
It’s a young adult contemporary paranormal. Which actually is a lot of genres melded, I guess.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

 I actually try not to pick actors for my stories, because I think the characters will look different to everyone, and I don’t want to mess up their imaginary possibilities.

I see what you mean … Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?

Never, ever, ever give up. If you can make it to the moment when you think you absolutely can’t do it anymore, that means success is just around the corner.
Also, the single most important thing you can do as a beginner is to finish a draft.
What is the synopsis of your book?
This isn’t the final cover blurb, but it’ll do:
 Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.
 
Blessed—or cursed—with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he’s a missing piece of her own soul.
 
Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she’s not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it’s not just Abby’s life at stake.
Will your book be self-published or traditional?
Traditional, through Rhemalda Publishing.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Uh…the first draft? The original first draft happened in a month. Then I threw that one away and spent the next year and a half writing it over. Five or six or seventeen drafts and six years later, it’s finally being published.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
It’s actually a little like the TV show Heroes, only with teenagers.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
A lot of people and things, actually. For this particular story, I’ve taken bits and pieces of situations and people from my whole life and meshed them all together with fictional ideas.But the idea for Abby being a healer came when I attended a workshop about chakra balancing given by a dear friend. (Find more information about holistic healing at www.thewayofthewitch.com.)
What else about your book might pique my reader’s interest?
 This story deals with loss, death, love, romance, personal healing, energetic balance, inner light, and other teenage situations.
Also, the cover will be revealed on March 4th. Anyone interested in participating in this fun event can sign up here: http://www.xpressobooktours.com/2013/02/cover-reveal-sign-up-descendant-by.html

Now for an Author bio:

Nichole Giles was born in Nevada, and moved with her parents to a number of cities in and around the Midwest. Her early career plans included becoming an actress or a rock star, but she decided instead to have a family and then become a writer. Writing is her passion, but she also loves to spend time with her husband and four children, travel to tropical and exotic destinations, drive in the rain with the convertible top down, and play music at full volume so she can sing along.

 

Heaven or Hell by Roni Teson; A readers favorite review

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Here is a must have story for every home with normal people. The theme is well researched and the author portrays a very nice view of life and death.
