Announcing The Symbiote Book Blog Tour

Good morning bookish guys, gals, and all those in between.

Today, we woke up to a beautiful snow-covered England.

I have always loved the snow, ever since I was a little boy. I remember days where I would play in it for hours, building snow forts and making statues of cats out of ice.

I don’t recall ever being sad when it snowed. Such beauty only ever inspired me. Seeing something so incredible, yet so simple brought hours of happiness to my world.

How do you feel about snow?

Now, to the main point of this blog post. 🙂

I am delighted to announce that Silver Dagger Book Tours is hosting a Book Blog tour for my upcoming young adult fantasy novel, Symbiote. This is the second book in The Peradon Fantasy Series, after Book One: Phoenix (the revised edition), which was released in late April of this year.

I do apologise that this post has been a while in coming. I’ve been incredibly busy as of late, what with getting through my review request list and preparing Symbiote for publication.

Coming December 25th

The Symbiote Book Tour will continue to run until December 30th and included an exciting giveaway where participants have the chance to WIN paperback copies of both Phoenix and Symbiote, in addition to ebook copies (Mobi, epub, or pdf), gemstone bottle pendants, and  a women’s size medium (approx uk size 8-12) Peradon four realms crest hoodie (bottle green.)

Please see the below schedule for details of the Symbiote Blog Tour stops. 🙂

Words We Never Speak (Metaphysical Romance Review)

 

Set in Windham Springs, Words We Never Speak , by Scarlet Darkwood is a mysterious tale that follows Kit, conservation manager of her local Historical Society. A somewhat tortured soul, Kit is forced to make a stand when the building she loves and works in is threatened to be torn down.

Every page of this book made me feel something. At times I found myself in awe of just how realistic and complex and main characters felt. At others, I could feel Kit’s terror as the mysteries of this novel deepened.

I enjoyed the supernatural elements involved. I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for anything related to supernatural phenomenon, although my moral compass didn’t know where to stand on the matter of Kit’s multiple love interests.

The fast pace of the book kept me intrigued, as did the clues that popped up gradually throughout. Each time something  new was found, terrifying Kit, the tension spiked, drawing me deeper into this fictional world.

Find It On Amazon, HERE:

The more intimate scenes were beautifully written and embraced the sensuality of mankind, rather than being overly graphic like most modern love scenes. Words We Never Speak is a thrilling tale of loss, love, and determination to save something dear to your heart, even in the face of near certain defeat.
Rated 5 stars.

Recommended for lovers of mystery, the
paranormal/supernatural, and metaphysical romance.

The Autism Spectrum (Close To My Heart)

Good afternoon fellow bookworms.

Today, I’d like to speak to you a little bit about Autism.
The Autism Spectrum acts as an umbrella term and
encompasses a wide variety of diagnoses, including:

autism_pic__always

 

  • Autism
  • Aspergers Syndrome
  • Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome
  • PDD-Nos
  • ADHD/ADD

Individuals on the Autism Spectrum are often treated differently because they are misunderstood by those around them.

As an individual on the spectrum, I’ve found true happiness when being able to connect with others similar to myself.

 

There aren’t nearly enough groups out there for those of us on the Autism Spectrum, as most actually cater to the parents/guardians of Autistic individuals. With that in mind, I’ve created a new Facebook group called Autistic Youth England, in the hope that it will bring fellow Aspies (Autistic persons) together, where they can connect, make friends, and learn from each-other’s experiences.

In the future, I would love to see this group grow and to create actual meet up events that we can all look forward to. If you think this group would be of interest to you or someone you know, then feel free to visit via the link below and share it with your network.

Visit the Autistic Youth England Facebook Page

 

I would just like to say a big thank you to anyone reading this post right now as this really is a matter that is dear to my heart.

Have a great day,
Mr Daccari Buchelli.

Introducing Shari Nichols (Author Interview)

Good morning fellow bookworms.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to beloved author Shari Nichols.

Shari Nichols grew up in a small town in Connecticut where haunted houses, ghosts and Ouija boards were common place, spurring her fascination with all things paranormal. Ever since she read her first Barbara Cartland novel, her lifelong dream has been to write sexy, romantic stories. Shari has been married to her own alpha hero for twenty-five years. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, going to the gym, or hanging out with family and friends.

Just as your books inspire authors, what authors have inspired you?

There are so many fabulous authors that have inspired me over the years with their words and their characters. I absolutely love Alice Clayton! Her books are filled with humour and heart. I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing Sylvia Day at an NJRW (New Jersey Romance Writer’s) conference and got an autograph and a picture with her. She was so kind and lovely. Her unique voice and her ability to create off-the-charts sensuality between her characters are some of the many reasons I fell in love with her books.

 

 

How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way they sound or the meaning?

Names are critical when it comes to creating believable, well developed characters. I remember my brother in law once told me about his uncle Thayne and described him as a tall, strapping man who had quite the reputation with the ladies in his youth. Immediately, an image began to take form in my mind. The name sounded so masculine and unbelievably sexy, I knew I had to create this larger than life character and make him jump off the page. As for my other characters, some are based on people I might know, some are based on people from TV and film. Sometimes just hearing a name sparks my imagination and I plot who that character could be and what drives them.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Boy that’s a tough one! There are so many! I’d love to have the power to know what people are thinking. It could save a lot of time and energy. Also, I’d love to have the power to make myself invisible so I could spy on my kids.

 

What’s on your bucket list (things to do before you die)?

I want to travel to as many exotic locales as possible, try the food, experience the culture, and learn about the people and the history. I’ve been talking about getting my Master’s degree for years. I’m still deciding in what. I would love to help my brother achieve his goals and participate in Special Olympics. I’ve always talked about taking a girls vacation with some really close friends and paying for the entire trip with all of my books sales.

 

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

That’s an easy one! I would be a golden retriever. My beloved, dog, Buddy is a golden and they have the sweetest and most loyal dispositions. I could only aspire to be that adorable.

That’s about all we have time for today.

Interview: Author of ‘Never Too Late To Die,’ Pablo Palazuelo

Good morning fellow bookworms!

Today, it gives me great pleasure to be interviewing  fellow author, Pablo Palazuelo .
Without further ado, I give you Pablo.

 

So Pablo, could you please answer a few questions for us?

1) Firstly, what led you to pursue a career in writing?

Basically, I wanted to tell a story that was different from the topics I found over and over again in everything I read. I took all the time I felt I needed with my novel Never Too Late to Die to make it an original thriller, which rose to No. 1 without any marketing at all.

That’s very impressive.
2) Do you specialize in one particular genre, or multiple?

I can’t honestly say because, so far, I’ve only published one novel, the thriller Never Too Late to Die. I do have to admit that the book I’m writing now is also a thriller. But I can assure you it will be very different than anything you’ve read to date.

3) Who are your literary heroes/heroines?

So many come to mind, from classics like Sherlock Holmes to contemporaries like Jack Reacher. Well, that’s in terms of male heroes. For heroines, I’d say Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Juno from the movie by the same name, and Clarice Starling from The Silence of the Lambs.

I have to admit that I’m a Hannibal book lover myself.
4) Tell me, which book has influenced you most in your life so far? Why do you feel this is?

I think it would be one from when I was quite young, a story that was truly responsible for my passion for books: The Lord of the Rings.
 

5) Have you always loved literature?

Not when I was little. Or not really. Back then, I loved comics. I still love them, actually. But in time that passion led me to dive into books.

6) If you could ‘ship’ (pair two fictional characters together romantically) two characters, who would they be?

What a great question. Well, if I were to pair two fictional characters, I might try to do so in a humorous way. I’d put William of Baskerville, from The Name of the Rose, with Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita.
