I get to feel special today, because I’m a stop on a book blog tour, ooh-ah! The book?
Release Date: May 6, 2013
Target Reader: Young Adult
Blurb: Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens. The stuff of fiction.
Or so Winn Thomas always thought.
Since being accepted into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his Changeling girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond what he’d get at his human high school.
Luckily, Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails. Right?
In this, the second of the 19th Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either. That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what to pick.
Winn, though, has his own ideas about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of.
He intends to have her pick human.
Whether she can or not.
Make you wanna read mo-o-ore? Well, the book is newly for sale – go get ‘em, tiger! There’s also an opportunity to win a copy. More on that after this: A warm Ever On Word welcome to… author Emi Gayle!
Me: Hi, Emi! A few quick words about yourself, if you please?
Emi: Well … here’s my bio. It’s short and sweet and me!
Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenaged son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years.
Ironically, those years were some of Emi’s favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she’s still in love with him to this day. She’ll never forget what it was like to fall in love at such a young age — emotions she wants everyone to feel.
Me: So, the 19th Year Trilogy. What’s it all about, and where does Day After fit into the grand scheme of things?
Emi: Day After is book 2 in the trilogy, following on the heels of After Dark and before Darkest Day which comes out in January 2014. It’s about a girl who has to pick what she will be (think ‘profession’ but supernatually) when she turns 19 and that’s what she will be for the rest of her life. Forever. No changes. Ultimately, the story’s about choice and difficult decisions and how when the grass looks greener, it isn’t always.
Me: What inspired this story? (Since I’m all about inspiration, like that.)
Emi: I just had the idea one day and that was it … 3 books later, her answer is there! But this is book 2, so no anwer yet!
Me: And because I’m all about the characters, too, who’s your favorite character of the story, and why?
Emi: So I have a secondary character named Suze who’s a demon and he’s my comic relief. He’s just … funny. On purpose of course, but he’s also Mac’s counterpart in many many ways and I just love writing him!
Me again: Thank you very much, Emi. (:
