We're happy to be part of Sherry Soule's blog tour for her upcoming debut BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN coming out July 1st! She's graciously agreed to answer some life-altering questions!
1. Give us the Twitter version (140 characters or less) of BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN.
Teen witch works at haunted house where she meets cute boy. She decides it's her destiny and duty to find out what is causing the mystical disappearances in her hometown.
2. What’s your favorite scene from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN?
Where the two main characters actually meet for the first time. It takes place at night with ghosts, a wraith, shadows and has some great snarky dialogue.
3. Tell us about the romance in BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN.
The romance is really the backstory to the main plot. Trent and Shiloh do manage to fall in love despite the craziness and death around them. Yet it does put a damper on things…
The fantastic online community of reviewers and book bloggers (like you guys).The support and enthusiasm has been invaluable.
5. As a former editor what are some of the most common mistakes you see writers make?
Each writer has their own weaknesses and strengths. For some writers it is adding too much backstory or too much telling instead of showing.
6. What supernatural phenomenon do you believe in or wish was real?
Vampires and magick.
7. Who are your favorites from the following television pairs?
Hey! That’s not fair. Super tough questions! You can’t make a girl pick. If I have to pick my favs in order, it would be:
SUPERNATURAL – Sam and Dean Winchester?
Number 1 (They are just so dang funny and cute)
VAMPIRE DIARIES – Stefan and Damon?
Number 2 (Both are super smoldering and hot)
Number 3 (These guys ooze sexy and hotness)
8. If you could go back in time to change something in history. Where would you travel to, what would you change and what three literary characters are you taking with you?
Another tough question. Well, I am part Native American, so I guess I would go back in time and try to help the American Indians. I’d take Zoey Redbird, Buffy Summers, and Jacob Black!
______________________________________Thanks for stopping by! You answered even the 'tough' ones and gave us a great excuse to give the ladies some eye candy!
(Note from Jake and Gregory: We're positive Alyssa is trying to get a poster of the Sam and Dean photo and put it over her bed!
Obsessive or just hormonal?)
Check out the summary of BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN below and Sherry is generously giving away an ebook!
Thirteenth daughter. Heritage witch. Demon slayer.They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms.Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal, and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken.With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
