Warrior Beautiful Blog Tour

I am so pleased to be joining the blog tour to present Wendy Knight's book Warrior Beautiful!!



Wendy is a fun, talented writer and I love knowing her! I asked her to do a guest post for me to day but before she does, I'd love for you all to get to know a bit about her.



Wendy Knight was born and raised in Utah by a wonderful family who spoiled her rotten because she was the baby. Now she spends her time driving her husband crazy with her many eccentricities (no water after five, terror when faced with a live phone call, etcetera, etcetera). She also enjoys chasing her three adorable kids, playing tennis, watching football, reading, and hiking. Camping is also big: her family is slowly working toward a goal of seeing all the National Parks in the U.S.

You can usually find her with at least one Pepsi nearby, wearing ridiculously high heel for whatever the occasion may be. And if everything works out just right, she will also be writing.





Now that you can see how adorable my friend it, let's get to her guest post!

If you could become a character in a book from a book that you love, which character would you switch lives with for a day and why?
I’m totally not doing this as shameful self-promotion—but if I could be any character, it would be my own Ari, from the Fate on Fire series. Seriously, I gave this question tons and tons of thought and I googled all kinds of powers and couldn’t find one just right. But isn’t that why most writers write? Because they want to live vicariously through their characters—to bring their daydreams to life…sorta…? It is for me. In my head, they’re just dreams. But on paper, I’m living them! But, ya know, without the danger of actually fighting in battles and stuff.
SO. Ari. And here’s why—when I wrote Ari, she was the exact opposite of me. I’m small, and incredibly shy, and I have lupus so I’m sick a lot. Ari, on the other hand, says what she thinks, is the most powerful sorcerer ever, and is tall and gorgeous. Plus, she can blow stuff up and throw fire and nothing and no one can kill her—except her boyfriend. So yeah! I would totally want to be her!
When I wrote her, I would put her in situations and then go, “hmmm. What would I do here?” and then I would have her do the total opposite. It was SO MUCH FUN to write her, and I miss her!
But also, the fact that she can walk into anything and come out victorious is super cool. She walks onto a battle field and everyone runs. When she throws a spell, her flames are so bright, she’s recognizable for miles around. She’s also smart and sarcastic and yet broken and learning to heal.

One other reason I would want to be Ari. Boots. She loves boots. And so do I! It’s one of the few things we actually have in common!

Thanks Wendy! I get excited every time one of your books gets released!

So here's a bit about her new book and, of course, her giveaway!

Synopsis: Working with the ex you secretly love to save the souls of the innocent is almost as bad as working with a mighty battle unicorn who would be thrilled to watch you plummet to your death.

Scout is used to pain. Her body has been broken, her heart has been broken, and the only thing keeping her together is her relationship with her younger sister. Lil Bit be-lieves in unicorns and terrifying monsters she calls soul stealers. But unicorns and monsters aren’t real…are they?

When Lil Bit falls prey to the mysterious disease sweeping the country, Scout has two options – believe the doctors who say it’s a pandemic or believe Lil Bit, who says it’s the soul stealers. She chooses her sister and goes looking for the unicorns who are supposed to save them. What she finds aren’t the cute pastel mythical creatures she expects. Battle unicorns are big and tough and full of attitude. Who knew?

Unicorns are real and so are the monsters. Soul stealers are reaping the souls of the innocent, and the unicorns are fighting to stop them. But to save the world, they need the help of humans – the enemy they’re dying to protect. And first to sign up for the fight is the ex-boyfriend Scout’s heart won’t stop loving, no matter how determined she is to hate him.
