                   Wild Fire is Here!

You're Invited to join me in celebrating my new release.
There are two different parties going on!

The first one starts right here...

Writers always talk about characters in their books, but settings are almost as important, and they play a huge role in the Guardian Witch series. Wild Fire is no exception, and this weekend blog tour focuses on several settings that are the backdrop for key events in the book. In fact, I think they're so important that I'm running a special contest.

If you collect the names and numbers of all ten (10) settings, you could win your choice of three ebooks in the series (including this latest release) or a $15.00 Amazon gift certificate. It's easy to do. Here are the rules. 

NOTE: A setting may appear on more than one blog, so be sure you have 10 different settings before turning in your entry.


Visit the blogs on this list -- or enough to collect all ten settings and read the two excerpts-- then email me at allyshieldsbooks@gmail.com by 9:00 a.m. November 10, 2014 EST with your completed list. You will automatically be entered in a random drawing (2 winners).

Here is the list of participating blogs:

AJ Locke
Angela Myers
Brinda Berry
Carmen Stefanescu
Danielle Devor
Dani-Lyn Alexander
DL Richardson
Erin Moore
JL Buck
Joyce Laverne
Kath Marsh
Kirstin Pulioff

More Fun: Those of you who read this before 6:00 - 10:00 p.m. EST on November 7, are invited to join us at the official Facebook release party (https://www.facebook.com/events/314795258698003/) for games and prizes, including books, swag and more gift certificates!!



Book Blurb, Trailer and Beginning Lines:

Blurb:

A vision. A lost talisman. A dangerous journey through time...

A month after their bonding, Ari and Andreas are still adjusting to married life when they learn the hard way that the O-Seven, the terrifying and brutal vampire elders, still have them in their sights. A three million dollar bounty hangs over each of their heads, and there’s no lack of assassins eager to collect.

When the local seer has a terrifying vision of the destruction of Riverdale, it’s up to Ari—as usual—to keep everyone safe. Only this time, an enemy from the past has bound her fire powers, and the city’s string of arsons seems connected.

Daron, the vampire prince in Toronto, has information that two of the vampire elders are on their way to Riverdale. Which can’t be good. Only a risky and unprecedented journey through time can provide the help they need. But that will leave Andreas to face the O-Seven alone...

Beginning Lines:

      Needlelike streams of magical energy—one pale blue, the other a shimmering green—arced upward through the cave’s darkness. Their glow reflected off stalactites, hanging from the rocky ceiling like boney fingers. The magics curved gracefully toward one another, guided by the man and woman standing below. At the moment of contact, a violent explosion shook the Chamber of Ages. Sparks shot down the magical trails. His wand flew into the air and dropped to clatter against one of the limestone projections on the floor.
     “Damnation.”
     “Ouch!” Ari shook her hands and danced away, causing the protective charms on her bracelet to jingle. Maybe she should consider using a wand. “That stung.”
     Andreas swore again, softly this time, staring at the puff of smoke. An acrid hint of sulphur marked the area of magical collision. “I am certain that was not supposed to happen."


Thank you for being part of the big day!

This is so very true that settings sets an atmosphere for the readers that the character sometimes cannot. And the writings you have pointed out here are for sure those in which setting matters the most and are giving an idea about the wild fire itself.
