What if the job you took to stay alive might be what kills you?

 

Kade knows what it is to suffer. He knows what it's like to lose everything and everyone around him.

 

His job in a Stormer Unit guarantees not just his survival in the decimated country of Azetaria, but his sister Meg's. Even if it means facing the Numachi warriors baying for his blood, he'll do what it takes to keep her safe.

 

Hadley is alone and surviving the only way she knows how. By hiding where predators won't find her and scavenging enough just to keep her alive.

 

When desperation drives Hadley to search for her missing brother, she mistakenly accepts the offer of recruitment into the Stormer's camp, only to be partnered with Kade and sent as a scout into Numachi territory.

Kade’s footsteps were heavy as he approached and stared down at her. “This isn’t going to work. You need to be wearing something lighter, or we’ll never make it to Lazen.”

 

Hadley tried for a weak shrug but could barely muster the energy. “What do you suggest?”

 

Kade raised an eyebrow, and a deep frown appeared on his face as he considered her. He continued to stare at her as she sat, legs sprawled out on the ground. “The best I can come up with is cutting your clothing.”

 

His eyes narrowed as he searched the length of her. A bolt of alarm jostled her into thinking. “How much are you cutting off?”

 

Kade dipped his chin, his voice low as he spoke. “Enough, so you don’t keep fainting, enough, so you still pass for a boy.”

 

He reached for a knife and wore the slightest of smiles as he unsheathed it. “Let’s hope you have hairy legs then eh?”

 

Hadley’s lips split into a smile before she remembered she was annoyed with him for being so smug.

Book Tour & Giveaway with Guest Post! The Prospero Chronicles by Fiona J.R. Titchenell!

 

 

https://www.silverdaggertours.com/

 


Welcome Readers! I glad you could join us, so let’s give a great big welcome to Fiona J.R. Tithenell who’s here today to tell us about The Prospero Chronicles and to give us some insight into what she edited out of the newest release – Stitches! Enjoy and don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!

ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

Splinters
The Prospero Chronicles Book 1
by Fiona J.R. Titchenell & Matt Carter
Genre: YA Horror, SciFi

 

Under normal circumstances, Ben and Mina would never have had reason to speak to each other. He’s an easy-going people person with a healthy skepticism about the paranormal; she’s a dangerously obsessive monster-hunter with a crippling fear of betrayal. But the small Northern California town of Prospero, with its rich history of cryptid sightings, miracles, and mysterious disappearances, has no normal circumstances to offer.

 

When Ben’s missing childhood friend, Haley Perkins, stumbles out of Prospero’s surrounding woods and right into her own funeral, Ben and Mina are forced to work together to uncover what happened to her. Different as they are, their unlikely friendship may be the only thing that can save the town, and possibly the world, from its insidious invaders.


“A snapping, crackling, popping homage to classic horror.” —Kirkus Reviews.

“Whip-smart dialogue... genuinely terrifying Splinters, the descriptions of which will have fans of monster films utterly enthralled... A promising series opener, this will satisfy those readers who like their scary stories to be as clever as they are chilling." —KQG, the Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books.

 

“The stakes are high. The action is intense." —Washington Independent Review of Books.

Shards
The Prospero Chronicles Book 2

 

When autumn descends on Prospero, California, Ben hopes the normality of the new school year may offer a reprieve from the town’s paranormal horrors. Mina knows all too well that there are no reprieves and no normality to be had in Prospero, but even she can’t prepare for what the coming year holds.

 

On top of the vivid hallucinations that have plagued Mina since the attack on the Warehouse, and the brewing Splinter civil war that threatens all of humanity, inside the walls of Prospero High, Ben, Mina, and their expanding Network face a vicious campaign to destroy their friendship, and a mysterious assassin picking off human rebels – an assassin with powers like no Splinter they’ve fought before.

 

Ben and Mina’s one hope rests with a mysterious old man hiding in the woods outside of town; a living legend who may be able to teach them how to fight this dangerous new breed of Splinter. That is, assuming he doesn’t kill the pair of them himself.


“Titchenell and Carter hold nothing back in this solid sequel that thrills and expands on its predecessor. Aided by swift writing, relatable characters and unexpected scares, Shards is a chill-inducing delight.” —David Powers King, co-author of Woven.

 

“Maintaining the same level of popcorn-munching fun, Titchenell and Carter are taking The Prospero Chronicles in a promising direction.” —Joe Dell'Erb, Washington Independent Review of Books.

Slivers
The Prospero Chronicles Book 3


Ben

Growing up is hard, and growing up in Prospero is even harder, but I think we manage. I mean, yeah, my friends and I spend more of our time fighting a race of shapeshifting aliens than we do hanging out, but we have our fun. We go to parties, help each other with our classes, maybe even fall in love… 

 

I’ve no illusions that we live ordinary lives, but they’re our lives, and I’m going to make sure we make the most of them whether the Splinters want us to or not.

 

Mina

The truce is temporary. We will not humor the Splinters forever. It's only until the Slivers can be stopped, until the army of Shards being planted among our classmates can be disassembled, until we get our hands on the thing I'd almost given up believing in.

 

The humanity test.

For the chance to know, once and for all, who can be trusted, some dealings with monsters must be excusable. Inevitable. Just like this feeling between Ben and me.

 

And that has to be temporary too.

Stitches
The Prospero Chronicles Book 4
by Fiona J.R. Titchenell

 

This is Prospero’s darkest hour. The few remaining humans trapped within the quarantine zone are all but defenseless against the multiplying forces of the Sliver Queen, Locusta. With Ben missing, Aldo among the enemy ranks, and more steel plates than bones left in her body, Mina’s passing the hours drowning in morphine and throwing heavy objects at her guards. 

 

Stripped of her weapons, her gadgets, and the Network itself, she has just one card left, hidden somewhere under her oft-sutured skin. It might be powerful enough to complete her life’s work once and for all… or to reach the one person who could make her life into more than a means to an end. But playing it will cost everything she has, or everything she believes in.

 

The final chronicle of Prospero waits in these pages.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Welcome Fiona! I am glad you could join us today to tell readers about The Prospero Chronicles. Are you ready to share what you edited out of the final chronicle?

 

 

**********

 

What did you edit out of this book?

 

Stitches probably had the biggest transformation from inception to final draft of any project I’ve ever worked on. I mean, it was originally going to be two books with two authors, so yeah, the cutting room floor got pretty crowded.

 

Maybe I should start at the beginning. My husband-slash-coauthor and I originally plotted out The Prospero Chronicles as a five part series. We signed it with a small publisher who only offered a contract for the first three books, with an option for more at their discretion. Determined but inexperienced authors that we were at the time, we decided we’d face that hurdle when we came to it and proceeded to write the first three books exactly as we’d planned them, with a massive cliffhanger at the end of the third.

 

Well, it turned out not to matter whether the publisher would have wanted books four and five after all, because we split with them shortly before the planned release of book three. The veritable soap opera that led up to the schism could fill more than a few blog posts, full of fishy accounting, name-calling, blame-shifting, unanswered emails, and broken promises, but long story short, the series went dormant for a long time while the rights to the characters were in limbo.

We moved on to other projects. Landed other contracts. Various exciting things happened.

Eventually, our superhero of an agent won back the rights and gave us the go-ahead to republish and finish the series independently. We created our own editions of Splinters and Shards and published the already-written Slivers, but then we had to talk about the finishing part.

 

We tried. We refined our outlines. We tried again. Matt’s heart just wasn’t in it. He’d grown apart from the characters, become attached to new ones in other worlds, and the publishing battle had left a sour taste in his mouth.

 

I, on the other hand, couldn’t let it go. Not the way we’d left it.

We agreed to condense the two planned books into one goliath of a book that would still have been quicker to finish, and Matt tried once more. He tried because he knew what it meant to me, but as any writer knows, if you can’t get excited about your own story, you’ll never excite anyone else with it. All the good intentions in the world couldn’t reignite that spark.

 

So we agreed that I would do it alone. That meant another replotting, to trim the ending down further and gear it more toward my solo strengths.

Things that got pruned in the course of all that include but are not limited to:

Almost an entire book’s worth of Mina and her father globetrotting in search of the Splinters’ weakness.

 

A whole lot of a freshly traumatized Ben trying to figure out how to run a resistance in an occupied town without her.

 

Half a book with the perspective divided three ways instead of two, following a third character’s efforts to stay undercover among the villains.

 

A quest to kill a hive of weaponized parasites.

A mercenary who could turn people to stone.

Two deaths scenes for characters who ended up surviving.
An ending for a character who ended up dying instead.

 

Ultimately, I think the result was a much tighter, punchier finale than we would have had otherwise, but there were some threads that didn’t end up going quite where they were expected to. I actually got as far as approving the cover art for Stitches, found myself staring at this beautifully creepy image of what was supposed to be the big bad of the whole series, and realized that her part of the story had been almost completely sidelined.

 

That meant another round of heavy reworking, to give her more time on the scene instead of just behind it, and a closer relationship with the heroes. The trouble was, we’d already set her up to be so dangerous that it was seriously difficult to put her in a room with anyone and justify how they would walk away alive. Matt was still consulting and editing for the series, so I went to him and said, “I need a power loader scene.”

 

Because when in doubt, invoke the glory of Sigourney Weaver.

What we came up with didn’t look much like a power loader scene, but it was exactly what was needed to give the final confrontation the proper significance, and it became one of the stranger action scenes in a series full of gooey shapeshifter battles, so I’m really excited to share it.

Wow! That is fascinating! What do you think, readers?

Blog Tour & Giveaway with Guest Post! Scythe (Dimension Drift Prequels #1) Christina Bauer!

 

 

http://xpressobooktours.com/

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Scythe 
by Christina Bauer 
(Dimension Drift Worlds, #1) 
Publication date: April 24th 2018
Genres: Dystopian, Fantasy, Young Adult


Synopsis:


“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t missDimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker

 


Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.


On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that the government likes to kill people like me. Whatever. I’m not worried; hiding from their detection systems is easy for me.


Then I screw up one of my illegal projects. Badly.


In fact, things go so sideways that my house slips into two-dimensional space-time. The shift only lasts for a few seconds, but that’s long enough to set off a dozen government alarms. If those goons track me down, Mom and I are as good as dead. Long story short, I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe.


Unfortunately, that means asking the Scythe for help. He runs the local underground crime scene and has absolutely no conscience…Or at least, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. It’s hard to think straight when a guy’s that hot in an ‘evil Mafioso kingpin’ kind of way. Most importantly, the Scythe is a crime lord who can conceal my slip-up with a few clicks on his minion’s computer keyboards. But the man has his price. In this case, the Scythe wants me to finish a certain dimensional prototype for him in twenty-four hours. I can do it, but it might mean Learning Squirrel High gets blown up in the process. Oh yes, and there’s also my new hot classmate who may or may not be an alien…and he says he’ll do anything to help me.


This job won’t be easy, but I’ve gotten out of worse scrapes. Maybe.

"Top 10 On Your Bucket List"
By Christina Bauer

 

 

As part of the launch tour for my new book, SCYTHE, the lovely folks at Stormy Vixen's Book Reviews have asked me to list the top 10 items on my bucket list. So without further ado, here goes!

 

10. See the Pyramids of Egypt. Since pyramids are cool.


9. Write 100 books. Just because I can. Maybe.


8. Eat my weight in pizza (I may have already reached this one)


7. Have a sandwich named after me (more food stuff, yeah!)


6. Never watch the movie Bucket List


5. Bring Huzzah back as a catch phrase


4. Get free spa treatments for life


3. Never go on a cruise (I watched too much Love Boat as a kid, which ruined this for me. Remember the episode with Ernest Borgnine? Yeah, that sucked.)


2. Tell those meddling kids to get off my lawn


1. Grow gray hair down to my waist, wear long white dresses, and have children call me Mrs B (that’s really three things but I got inspired)

 

 

Thanks for having me stop by! I hope to see you on a future tour!

 

 

Thanks for joining me here today, Christina! I really enjoyed your bucket list as dare I say...that I wish my bucket list was half as cool as yours! See you again, soon!

Christina Bauer knows how to tell stories about kick-ass women. In her best selling Angelbound series, the heroine is a part-demon girl who loves to fight in Purgatory’s Arena and falls in love with a part-angel prince. This young adult best seller has driven more than 500,000 ebook downloads and 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. The first three books in the series are now available as audiobooks on Audible and iTunes.

 

Bauer has also told the story of the Women’s March on Washington by leading PR efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter. Her pre-event press release—the only one sent out on a major wire service—resulted in more than 19,000 global impressions and redistribution by over 350 different media entities including the Associated Press. 

 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.

Pages: 290

 
This Christmas Eve… no creature was stirring…

 

Except, maybe, a mouse. 

 

At long last, can true love break the Nutcracker’s curse? 

 

For Clara Stahlbaum, this Christmas means the end of her youth. A daughter of the aristocracy, Clara is expected to give up her dreams of adventures and the extraordinary for more normal days as the wife of a cruel Viscount. 

 

But when magical Uncle Drosselmeyer returns with his wondrous, dancing contraptions, and one...special gift for Clara, she is beckoned to the land of Winter Dream, where she is thrust into the greatest adventure of her wildest dreams. But will she be able to break the Nutcracker's curse? 

 

Uncle Drosselmeyer’s apprentice, Anton, is handsome as he is mysterious. But what is it about him Clara finds so alluring? 

 

Winter Dream is a phenomenal retelling of The Nutcracker from the eyes of Clara Stahlbaum with all the magic of the Holiday season. If you loved S. Jae-Jones’ Wintersong, you’ll fall in love with this stunning tale of love, war, redemption, and Christmas magic.

PROLOGUE

 
Large, white puffs floated all around me. Sinking into my flesh with their cold, yet light kisses. Every snowflake was different, specially crafted before it fell from the sky. They were beautiful, even as they melted. I tipped my head back to catch the snow as it fell. I felt as though I was floating through air, caught in a haze of ice flakes as sugary and sweet as the icing on the gingerbread house my governess and I had made together.

 
I stretched my arms out to my sides, spinning in place.

 
The green forest turned with me, a wood full of large spruces perfect for Christmas trees. They were decorated as such, lighted with white candles and draped in silver tinsel. On some, icicles hung on the tips of the limbs. It was a world in which the snow was like sugar and the air smelled delicious, like freshly baked cookies. It was perfect—a world of my own making, if I was capable of crafting something so… wonderful.

 
“Clara…”

 
The sound of my name trilled from a distance, carried on the cool, winter wind.

 
Turning slowly, I peered over my shoulder, catching a glimpse of a young boy my age. He was dressed in a bright red suit, adorned with golden epaulettes. His blond hair was brushed away from his face, revealing two bright blue eyes. His lips, pink as his cheeks, curved into a smile.

 
“Clara…”

 
“Yes?” I asked curiously, turning to face him. As I slid my hands over my cream and ivory lace nightgown, I suddenly felt quite foolish. My mama had always insisted I never wear my bedclothes in front of guests or visitors. And yet, here, in this strange and beautiful world, such things hardly seemed to matter. He took my hand and flashed another warm smile as he led me to a large, white carriage.

 
“Where are we going?” I asked softly, pausing before the door. The panels were solid ivory, adorned with a golden handle and step.
 

“Winter Dream,” the boy said with a relieved expression. “Home. Home to Winter Dream.”

 
“Winter Dream?”

 
“I’ve come to take you back, Clara. To where I am—to where all the people who love you live.”

 
“But I don’t know where this Winter Dream is. I’ve never been there…”

 
“Come with me,” he beckoned, squeezing my hand gently. “Come. . .”

 
The snow fell all around us; small flakes clung to the tips of our hair and eyelashes. As much as I longed to go . . . there was something holding me back. Something. . .

 
As I peered behind me, a small, dark shadow began to form. It started out small, like the size of a mouse, and it grew—or was I shrinking? The boy beside me held my hand, and his eyes grew wide with fear.

 
“No!” I screamed, tucking myself into his shoulder. Whatever it was, I didn’t want to see. I didn’t want to know.

 
“Clara, wait!” I heard him beg, his urgent tone tugging at my heartstrings. “Come with me, please.”

 
“No! I want to go home!”

 
As soon as the words poured from my lips, I woke with a start.

 
Here, there was only me and the four walls of my bedroom. A sheer sliver of light crept through the space of an open curtain, sparkling with the bright white of the snow outside. It was quiet, as if the world had not yet woken. As if I was the only one no longer dreaming sweet things. Instead, while everyone else slept, I contained the chill of my own strange dream.

 
I buried myself beneath the duvet and hugged my knees to my chest. I was alone, completely and utterly alone.

 
I closed my eyes tight, not wishing to face that Christmas morning. I wished only for the chance to slip back into my dream. To return back to that magical world, where a boy with bright blue eyes was waiting for me. Back to the place where an enchanting land called ‘Winter Dream’ existed.
