Summer Giveaway Hop

I don't know about your neck of the woods, but in mine, the sun is gearing up to another triple digit August. For us this means, no more fun in the sun, we now have to stay indoors to keep from frying up! What better time to sit next to a fan and read a good book.
For this reason I've joined I'm A Reader Not a Writer and Bookhounds in this second annual Summer Blog Giveaway, and I'm giving away a copy of one of my books.
You choose! 
 "I have always existed, not just me but all of us, the un-embodied spirits who wait to live.”Tess is an unborn spirit, who is about to embark on a much awaited journey into mortality to a brand new planet called Earth. She is chosen by the Eternals for an important mission, and is put under a rigorous training by a half-human, half-lion Seraph.  This training exposes Tess to some of her darkest fears and insecurities.  These experiences force Tess to work on her gift as a discerner of thoughts and reader of auras—thus helping her become one of Heaven’s most powerful angels.  But even angels falter, and deep inside her a gnawing fear is growing. Will she meet her soul mate in life? Will their love be strong enough to overcome the forgetting effects of the Veil? And, is she prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the most dangerous renegade and leader of the Fallen Angels at bay during mortality?

Or ...

Veiled from her previous existence as a gifted Angel, Tess is now a mere mortal growing up in foster care with her autistic foster brother, Dorian, and a twisted foster sister, Agatha—whose main goal in life is to torture them both. 

Tess’ life has been dull and average at best; but all that changes with one look.  When she inadvertently gazes into the eyes of the most popular guy in school—Alex Preston—Tess sees a glimpse of her previous existence. 

Uncomprehending, Tess, wonders what those memories are and why she now feels like she knows Alex better than anyone in this world.  More importantly, why is he haunting her dreams?  Dreams so vivid, that they blur the lines of reality, awakening a slew of inexplicable paranormal abilities she didn’t know she possessed.

Frustrated and confused, Tess lives a double life… one where Alex has a girlfriend and Tess is a normal high school girl.  And another, where spirits, visions, and dreams are true. 

Is she going crazy or is she secretly dating Alex in her dreams?

If you're still enough ... you might just hear them.

Sometimes I get an image in my head, and I write that image as best as I can, so I can convey my thoughts. And sometimes I'll stumble upon an image that describes the thought I had in my head so incredibly well, it's spooky. Like this one for instance. In Living Soul, Tess visits this room and listens to the voices of those who have inhabited this place before.
Here are some more reviews along the Living Soul Blog tour that you might find interesting.

Killing Your Main Characters

What if your characters heard you writing about them? My mom said that I had to watch this movie, because I would find it appropriate. You have to be in the mood to watch it, its not Elf, but I found this particular scene so hilarious, I just had to share it! Now Harold is a character in a book, and a literature professor is telling him that he has to die or the novel will be ruined. Now they are totally straight faced here, and I don't know how they could even get through filming this scene so straight-faced, I was rolling on the floor laughing--because, well--he's a character! I feel sad now for all the characters I have killed and continue to kill in my stories. LOL!
