HOSTING RACHEL MCCLELLAN - FRACTURED SOUL BLOG TOUR


 

Today I am hosting Rachel McClellan 
for her Fractured Soul, 
Virtual Blog Tour  

I asked Rachel five questions relating to herself and her writing and these are her answers:


1.       Please tell us about yourself in fifty words or less. 


I am the mother of four amazingly wonderful and completely crazy children. Writing has helped to keep me sane. Besides writing I love all kinds of sports and enjoy staying active. I seek out adventures like my children seek out my peppermint M&M’s. But they won’t ever find them. (I hide them in my tampon box.)

2.       Is writing your main occupation? 


No, but I wish. I also work part time in the glamorous field of merchant account processing.

3.       What's been the single most empowering piece of advice you've gotten when it comes to writing? 


Never start a project before you know the ending. I can’t tell you how many novels I’ve started and never finished because I didn’t know where I was going with it. Now I never begin a novel unless I know the ending. This gold nugget has also prevented writers block.

4.       What's been your most challenging writing moment to date? 


This may sound stupid, but it’s been difficult to know how dark to take my books. A couple of years ago I discovered a part of me that’s quite twisted, but because I write YA I don’t think my crazy thoughts are appropriate. Maybe one day I’ll switch to writing adult and let my “beast” come out.

5.       What compelled you to write your book?


I didn’t have much of a choice. The characters voices were so loud, I thought I might go mad if I didn’t tell their story. 





Blurb

Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!


Excerpt

As soon as the Vyken appeared in the doorway, I tossed a ball hard. He dodged it by jumping up along the side of the wall, his nails and bare toes somehow finding a hold in the thin cracks of the wall. I threw another one, but he was already moving, scrambling alongside the stones like a spider. He was grinning.

I rolled away from the wall until I was in the middle of the room. I lost sight of him for just a fraction of a second, but that was enough. The Vyken was gone, or, I should say, hiding. He was still here. I could feel him. I looked up toward the rafters of the tower roof. It was pitch black.
At the bottom of the tower, I heard Christian begin to ascend the stairs. “I’m coming, Llona!” he yelled.

Still staring up, I created Light again in the palm of my hand and willed it to rise. The closer it got to the rafters the faster my heart beat. Sweat rolled down the small of my back.

Light began to fill dark spaces, exposing that which wished to remain hidden. My Vyken was there, but he wasn’t alone. Another sat crouched on a beam. Where his left eye should’ve been there was an empty hole.

I screamed when my Vyken dropped from the ceiling, extinguishing the light. He fell onto my stomach, pushing my shoulders into the floor. I tried to create Light, but it was as if he knew what I was going to do because his hands slipped up and pinned my wrists together. He bent forward and inhaled my skin. The warmth of his breath steamed my ear when he said, “I’m going to eat every part of you.”



Fractured Light (Fractured Light, #1) Blurb

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
