Book Description:

Pertin spent her life trying to please her father, an esteemed
General for the Empire.

he convinced her to leave her quiet life as a scientist to advance a
secret project for the Emperor, she had no idea what she was getting
into. The seemingly innocent projects she engineered were actually
being used to develop a genocidal weapon. After uncovering the
Emperor’s plot, Elora had no choice but to act.

finds herself fighting for her life against the Empire she once
served, abandoning everything with only a handful of friends and an
unlikely ally—the Emperor’s deadliest assassin. Will he prove
himself true as her protector, a loyal servant of the Empire, or a
romantic distraction? With the law and assassins searching the star
system for them, Elora and her team are determined to accomplish
their mission . . . or die trying.

Excerpt One:

in her room, Elora tried to come up with another plan. If her father
she had to find someone else. Just finishing and going home was not
an option. She tried to focus on the weapon, but was preoccupied with
thoughts of her father. What was he involved with? How could he
involve her in the development of an illegal weapon? He had been her
rock and best friend since her mom died when she was so young. If she
couldn’t trust her dad, whom could she trust?
had just closed her eyes to practice the meditative techniques she
learned on Naruta when she was suddenly pulled out of bed to her
feet. She felt the strong arms of a man on either side of her head.
Instinctively, she tried to jerk his arms away because she was sure
he was about to break her neck. Her head was pulled so far to one
side she could feel the muscles in her neck tearing apart. Then he

could barely see the mirror in her peripheral. The man’s black
monochromatic attire made him hard to see in the dark room, but she
could make him out against her body. He was tall with shaggy dark
hair, slightly curly on the ends. He had a strong jaw, and as she
moved up his face, she saw he was looking at her in the mirror. His
eyes were dark—almost as black as his clothes. Just as suddenly as
he pulled her out of bed, he released her.

Pinterest for Authors

            If you’re an author, traditionally published or self-published, you’re probably thinking about how you can market your book. Social media should be part of every author’s platform, and there is a ton of information out there on how to utilize Facebook and Twitter, but Pinterest is often overlooked. Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social media sites where users “pin” images from the web onto boards. It’s almost solely a visual site, but you can also write short, concise descriptions. Here are some ways authors can utilize Pinterest in their author platforms:
1.     Create a board for each of your novels or novel series. I have a board dedicated to Renegades where I pin settings, space ships, weapons, clothes, and actors to play the characters. For fans of the book, they can see images that have inspired me or images that show what I imagine.
2.     Picking a Cover. When I work with my graphic designer, I end up with several cover options and often variations to one that I like the most. If you have enough followers, a way you can use Pinterest in an interactive way is to ask people to repin the cover they like the most to help you choose.
3.     Help Boost Blog Visibility. A great way to lure new readers to your blog is to pin the images you use to Pinterest. The caveat to this is that you always have to use at least one image per blog post.
4.     Writing Inspiration Board. Whether you post images of your favorite writing clothes or spots or inspiration quotes, a writing inspiration board will not only help encourage other writers, but hopefully you too when the motivation isn’t quite there.
5.     Fan Art. If you’re lucky enough to have fans sending you illustrations and drawings inspired by your book(s), then pin them!

So if you don’t have a Pinterest account, go ahead and make one! Just a warning: you will become addicted.

By the way, I think that this is a fantastic book, I just finished reading it and I absolutely cannot wait for the next book to come out. This is certainly a book worth checking out. Do keep an eye out for my review!


I realy love the colors of the cover :)
