Autumn/Halloween Countdown Blitz Day 7




Deirdra has spent the last decade captivating audiences of all ages with her novels and fairy tales. Her specialty is paranormal theology that delves into documented historical phenomenon and natural disasters of biblical proportions.



The Watchers” are supernatural beings in human form, charged with protecting mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, some of these Watchers go bad. 

Deirdra Eden’s The Watcher’s Series is written in a traditional fairytale style with a young girl’s discovery of incredible, but dangerous powers within herself, a cast of humorous side-kicks, a quest for greater self-discovery and purpose, and villains of epic proportions. 

In England, 1270 A.D., Auriella flees her village after being accused of witchcraft. Pursued by nightmarish creatures, she struggles to accept the truth about her humanity.


Filled with fairies, dwarves, pixies, dragons, and monsters, Knight of Light is an enthralling tale that will capture the imaginations of readers young and old. Auriella’s new life as a royal protector is in shambles. The new king ignores her warnings of a Shadow Legion invasion and he is determined to marry her off. Ghosts from her past, the discovery of other Watchers, and a handsome Scottish warrior throw her off guard and weaken her emotional defenses. Caught in a web of secrecy and betrayal, Auriella struggles to control and protect the devastating power of Starfire. A terrible truth and a fateful choice will lead her to her destiny as the fabled Lady of Neviah, or could shroud the entire world in eternal darkness. 

Filled with action, romance, drama, and comedy, Hidden Fire is an addicting read that you won’t want to put down.

The Watchers Series has been described as Braveheart meets Supernatural. The mythology for the series is based on many theological texts from dozens of sects with correlating themes. Ancient writings include the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Traditional Apocrypha, the Pearl of Great Price and the Kabbalah. The Watchers are supernatural beings in human form whose duty it is to protect and guard mankind from the armies of darkness. Unfortunately, as the Book of Enoch mentions, some of these Watchers go bad. 

Although the mythology is based on these texts, Deirdra Eden's The Watcher's Series is written in a traditional fairytale style with a young girl's discovery of incredible, but dangerous powers within herself, a cast of humorous side-kicks, a quest for greater self-discovery and purpose, and villains of epic proportions. 


Auriella joins the ranks of the Immortals, but Azrael has vanished in the depths of war. She is forced to choose between love or loyalty when the druids charge her with finding Alamar, an unruly Watcher who can control the seas. Though witty and charming, Alamar and his blood thirsty friends can’t be trusted. Now, it’s a race against time to find Azrael before he is killed, and Alamar before he is recruited by the Shadow Legion.

“Deirdra Eden has surpassed her earlier achievement in this daring tale of struggle between good and evil forces that exist in every universe.” Mark F. Cheney, author of MARK OF THE JAGUAR 

“Thought provoking and full of action, I didn’t want to put the book down! I really loved the symbolism and it was a fantastic read.” Mary G. – age 15

Autumn/Halloween Countdown Blitz Day 6



USA Today bestselling author Shanna Hatfield is a farm girl who loves to write. Her sweet historical and contemporary romances are filled with sarcasm, humor, hope, and hunky heroes.


Shanna creates character-driven romances with realistic heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as ""reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian"" while her contemporary works have been called ""laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.""

 

When Shanna isn't dreaming up unforgettable characters, twisting plots, or covertly seeking dark, decadent chocolate, she hangs out with her beloved husband, Captain Cavedweller.

    
  


Artist Brooke Roberts spent her life without roots, wandering from town to town. When she seeks refuge from a freak storm in the town of Romance, she decides to stay and open a blown glass studio. Determined to immerse herself in the community, she adopts a family of pigs. Brooke is unprepared for the chaos and comfort they bring to her world, or the dashing cowboy who rescues her heart.

 

Solid, dependable Blayne Grundy runs a busy ranch, volunteers on various committees, and takes in stray animals too large to stay at the local animal rescue. Then a chance encounter with a beautiful, beguiling woman leaves him so befuddled, he can barely remember his own name. His predictable organized life is about to be blown away by free-spirited Brooke.

 

A sweet, lighthearted novella, Blown Into Romance highlights the mighty power of love and letting go from USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield 

    
  


Q&A With the Author:

1. What is your favorite Autumn Time activity?
We live across the road from an apple orchard. It’s so fun to watch the workers pick the apples and see the huge bins full of bright red fruit. When the apples are ripe, there is the most delicious, spicy scent in the air. To me, that’s when autumn has fully arrived when the apple picking begins.  

 

2. What is one of your writing quirks? 

I need music playing on a loop to stay focused on my writing. I’m sure it drives the other occupants of my house bananas, but I will choose a song that goes along with the book I’m working on and listening to it nonstop while I’m writing. It makes me smile when I hear a song I’ve “chosen” on the radio, and I think “oh, it’s my character’s song!” 

 

3. Which of your books was your favorite to write? And why? 

I can’t pick just one. That’s like picking a favorite child. But I do have a few that were extra special. Garden of Her Heart was the first World War II book I wrote. Researching it made me so aware of the sacrifices made by so many, including those on the home front. And Grass Valley Brides, which recently released, was just such fun to write. It’s a collection of three novellas that are intertwined. There is one handsome rascal, Tagg Thompson, who pops up all three stories and just figuring out ways to work him in made the project a real treat for me to write.  

 

4. Who is the person or group of people who most support you in your writing? What have they done for you? 

I have so many wonderful people in my life who are encouraging and supporting, and I am grateful every day for them. The person who has been the most supportive is my husband. He’s the one who encouraged me to quit my day job and write full time and he’s great to help me brainstorm new story ideas. I also have the most amazing group of readers—the Hopeless Romantics. We have a group on Facebook and have so much fun sharing not just about my books, but recipes, crafts, and more.  Many of them have become my friends and I cherish them so dearly.  

 

5. What is your trick for getting past writer's block? And what advice would you give to others who are struggling? 

Take a break. The best thing to do is clear your head. Go for a walk, do a project around the house. Just give your brain time to reengage and you’ll be able to get past it.  

 

6. Autumn time has its own set of foods/flavors. What is your favorite Autumn comfort food? 

If I had to pick one favorite autumn food, it would be pumpkin pie. I just love, love pumpkin: pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cake, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin everything! But basic pumpkin pie remains my favorite. A close second would be chicken with homemade noodles. It was one of my favorite meals when I was a child and my mom always made it for my birthday.

Snippet:

 The man had time to scream and drop his hammer as the NTH shot sizzled into his chest. He fell to the ground in a heap of newly dead flesh and did not move, his mouth locked into a distended 'O' shape.

The woman, however, was a different story. She grit her teeth and watched the shot come in. To Stenstrom’s horror, the NTH shot stopped in mid-air and burned like a tiny green sun before her. He felt TK pouring out of her. She had stopped his shot with her mind, only a Sister had such power.

She gasped in wicked delight. “Huh? You like that? Huh?”

Before Stenstrom knew what was happening, she sent the NTH shot back at them. “This is yours, I think! Here!” she cried as the speeding shot hit Gwendolyn square in the chest. She fell backward and dropped her FEDULA as she crashed into the grass.
