Willow Cross ; Blog Tour : Guest post

Deciding a topic for my guest post was ridiculously (Almost torturous really.) After careful consideration and with much nail biting trepidation, I chose to reveal some info you won’t see or hear anywhere I am frequently asked which of my characters are my favorite. When the question arises, I generally give the same glib answer: “I have no favorites. I love them all the same.” In all honesty, I feel like a mother who was just asked which of her children held her highest esteem. We must never have favorites, right? It could seriously damage the psyche of a child to find out they aren’t the fav. Now, I’ve decided to come clean and reveal a shocking truth. I do have a favorite character! And as attached as I am to all the MC’s, it’s not who you might think. I have a thing for Pete Indera (Inheritance). Pete isn’t anything spectacular. He’s not gorgeous, rich, charismatic, or even very Before he met Sarah, he had no life plan at all. He followed orders and went along with the pack. It’s what happened to Pete after he met Sarah that sets him apart from the rest. When he fell, he fell hard. Not just the whole I-love-you-and-I-will-die-without-you thing. We see that all the time. It’s nothing new in life or literature. He became loyal in a way that probably only a human/wolf hybrid could. The more time he spent with her, the more resolute he became to committing to her. Even after realizing she would never belong to him, or reciprocate his love, he was determined to protect her. With his life if necessary. Pete’s relentless care for Sarah raises him far above the common man. He is proof that anyone can become a hero, and that to become one, you don’t need to be in the limelight. Regardless of the pain it caused him, he diligently worked to bring joy back into her life. Now another secret: I didn’t write Pete to be that way. He grew into himself without any coaching from me. As crazy as that sounds, it’s true! I wish I could explain how this happens, but I haven’t the foggiest idea. He inserted himself into the story and decided not to leave, so it is what it is. So there you have it. The mindless ramblings of a lunatic, or quite possibly the unintentional channeling of an entity who refuses to lay dormant in someone’s thoughts. Either way, Pete is my fav and I will applaud and adore him until the day I die. This blog tour is for Ingeritance but . . . . As an added surprise to Willow here is my review of her book Haunted
Blurb via Goodreads Haunted Have you ever heard something go bump in the night and wonder if someone was there? Only to go looking for the cause of the noise and find nothing at all. Or how about unexplainably feeling like you’re being watched when you’re completely alone? Things disappearing for no reason or strange ghostly footsteps in the hall? This book is a collage of short stories about a few of the otherworldly experiences I’ve had. Although they are not movie worthy, you may find them interesting. All the stories are %100 true. Nothing has been added for dramatic effect. My review. This is an easy read which due to the fact that the stories has not dramatic ending is all the more chilling for its plain BOO worthiness. This is a must read for all that grew up with parents and siblings telling ghost stories around the camp fire. The easy fluid prose makes it a joy to read and I really recommend you go and download this little beauty for free. If only to look at all the nuances on the cover. I absolutely adore this cover. I give this story a 5 *****
