Wildfire Tour Update, Necklace, Video, & More!!

The blog tour for Wildfire is finished! I had a blast doing this tour, which was my first! I got several reviews for Wildfire and I’m happy to say that ALL of them were positive reviews! Yay!

I did notice that most reviews liked Wildfire more than Everealm, which actually makes sense to me because I think I finally found my writing “groove” while working on Wildfire. I, also, noticed that several readers think parts of Wildfire feel a bit rushed, so I am keeping that in mind while writing Blood Moon (Book Three). ūüôā

Here is a video about the tour, new paperbacks, giveaways, etc. This is my first video and I’m still working out a few kinks, trying to keep the audio and video in sync throughout. I apologize, in advance!


As mentioned in the video, here is the necklace that is included in the tour giveaway. Isn’t it gorgeous? The shop on Etsy is Rabbitwood and Reason¬†and Dosha (shop owner) is so talented!

P.S. Happy to say that we are at 1,040 entries this morning!

Here was the schedule for the tour. A * by a name means the blogger didn’t get their post up or hasn’t yet.

Maps of Everealm!

Maps of Everealm are finished (for now)! It took longer than I anticipated to piece together the three regions and create the Master Map, below. The three region maps follow. I have also updated the Maps page in the Guide to Everealm. Now, I’m off to work on Blood Moon. Enjoy!

Dream Cast – Part Two!

Happy Fall Y’all! It’s the first day of fall and if we were in Everealm, we would be gearing up for the Harvest Festival! Alas, we are stuck here, in reality… So instead, in celebration of the middle mark of the Wildfire Book Tour (hosted by YA Bound) here is the second part to my Dream Cast!

P.S. I am finishing up the North Everealm map, today. I hope to get the rest of the maps posted by the end of the day, tomorrow!

Included in part two:
Sarita, Cicilly, Nicholas, Celeste, Silas, Vallica, & Simon

Sarita

It was tough to find a child actress that looks like the actress I chose for Bree, but also has brown eyes (which is SUPER important, if you catch my drift). I did, though, come across this cutie! Her name is Erin Gerasimovich. I almost chose her older sister, who is also an actress, but Erin is closer to Sarita’s age in the first book (6 years old).¬†

Cicilly

This one was a no-brainer, for me. I pick Claire Forlani! I imagine this actress when I am envisioning the Queen Mother in my head. I loved her in Camelot and I am still irked that they cancelled that show! Nevertheless, this is definitely my Cicilly!

Even better? Claire has already played a similar part, in Camelot:


Celeste

Lisa Edelstein just speaks to me! She was great on House and I’m sure she could pull off Aunt Celeste’s flirty personality. Notice, too, how much Lisa and Claire (above) really do look like they could be sisters!!

Nicholas (Sir)

For our fearless First Knight, and Rowan’s father, I like Russell Crowe! The good thing about a “dream” cast is that I can choose anyone, practical or not! If I were Cicilly, I wouldn’t mind having this sweet guy around to protect me. Just saying…

Silas

Oh, the infamous royal uncle with a mean streak and naughty side… I have chosen Julian McMahon. He just oozes “sexy-villain” and contrary to what you might think, Silas is quite an attractive man. It’s his actions that make him despicable. This guy is so good at playing “bad”!


Vallica

I’ve gone back and forth between the following two actresses, Famke Janssen and Eva Green for Vallica, our scorned wife-turned villainess. But I think I prefer Famke!¬†She can definitely play a victim and a villain and Vallica is both.

Simon

Simon was a tough one. On one hand, he is strong and rough around the edges. On the other hand, he has a kinder heart than most. I did come across Anson Mount while searching. I’m not very familiar with him, but I like what I see, so far!


That’s it for Part Two! Click here for Part Three (Adelphie, Rhea, Reeve, Gabby, Tristan, Xavier, & Rianne)!¬†
