Soul Savers Blog Tour and GIVEAWAYS

I am SO excited to be a part of this Tour.  This is an INSANELY INCREDIBLE series.


QUESTION: You try to separate yourself from the Amadis, but are you loyal to them? 

 Jax: I just prefer the Outback is all. At first, right after I was turned, I scared myself around my mates. Was afraid I’d accidentally eat them. But bein’ out in the bush, by myself - that was all right. I figure the world is safer this way. I’m just as loyal to the Amadis as anyone else, though. Especially to my princess. That Sheila is one heck of a woman.

Meet Kristie Cook

Kristie Cook is a lifelong writer in various genres, from marketing communications to fantasy fiction. Besides writing, she enjoys reading, cooking, traveling and riding on the back of a motorcycle.

Title: Devotion
Author: Kristie Cook
Publish Date: Published January 31st 2012 by Ang'dora Productions, LLC Synopsis:
With powerful abilities gained from the Ang’dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she’s ready for the next challenge— protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis. Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they’ll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis’ protection. The couple’s own society begins to shut them out. But that’s not all. Someone’s keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time. But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test—devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs—leaving her to question whom she’s fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won’t fight . . . who will?
Devotion…Alexis’ devotion to her family and to the Amadis is fanominal.
Promise was like striking a match. Purpose was igniting the wick. Devotion is the explosion.
The Soul Saviors series just keeps getting better and better. Alexis is in training..trying to master her skills and powers to fight the evil that threatens the human race. However, as her abilities increase, she is aware that something is amiss. She learns things that make her doubt the council of the Amadis. She is also trying to find a way to protect Dorian who is destined to take the wrong path. Is there a reason there was only a boy born and not the traditional girl to rule the Amadis?
As Alexis and Tristan leave the Island to protect the Amadis people, they are attacked at every turn. They are scoring the states trying to find a place that is safe enough to raise Dorian. In their travels, they will meet allies that will help them when they least expect. They are searching for the Truth.  But will they find that truth and the Traitor within the council to protect the Amadis way?
Devotion is a white knuckled read that will keep you up all night because you WILL not be able to put it down. I have fallen head over heels for this series. The characters are strong, the writing breathtaking, I just can’t get enough!

Character Interview with Claudia of Crossroads and Tour Wrap Up

As the Crossroads Saga Tour comes to a close, I thought it would be a treat to interview Claudia!!

Thanks so much Claudia for giving my your time. I just have a few questions for you!!

 1. Was it difficult to hear the loss of your friend?

 Yes it was. I never imagined I would lose a friend at such an early age. She had a whole life a head of her. It’s a tragedy the way she passed away. It feels like a dream. It doesn’t matter how long it has been since her death, the pain is still there. 

 2. What were your first thoughts when you entered Crossroads?

 I went to Crossroads through my dreams. When I crossed over, I saw the most beautiful place I had ever seen. A feel of tranquility ran through me and when I meet Michael, I knew I was really dreaming…lol!!! Little did I know it wasn’t a dream at that moment. 

 3. Was it hard to grasp that Michael is part Angel?

 At first it was. It was difficult to grasp angels and humans could create a child because it was forbidden. But when I found out there were many, I got used to the idea. Perhaps there are many living in human world. They may not know. 

4. Describe your attraction to Michael?

 When we first met, our eyes locked. I couldn’t peal my eyes off him. He was mysterious, arrogant with a wonderful heart. As I got to know him better, I found out he was just as beautiful in the inside as he was on the outside. What I love about Michael is that he loves me and would do anything for me. Just as I would for him….blush! 

 5. What is your fondest memory of you and Michael?

 The fondest memory would be when he took me to the waterfall. He opened up to me, pouring out his heart and soul. I love it when guys can talk to you like a friend. It was also the first time he took me flying…magnificent…took my breath away. 

6. Do you feel safe with Michael and the other alkins protecting you?

No doubt about it. They have proven their powerful skills over and over. I wish I could fight like them…lol!!! 

 Thank you for this wonderful interview and the fantastic Crossroads Saga Blog Tour. I’m looking forward to the next new chapters in my life.

Crossroads Saga Book Tour by Mary Ting

Welcome to The Crossroads Saga Book Tour!!!

This saga holds very dear to my heart. I would like to introduce to you, Mary Ting!

Hello! It’s so nice to meet everyone from around the world. I would like to give many thanks to Michele for hosting Crossroads/Between blog tour and Trajce from Macedonia for creating such a beautiful banner.

I started writing Crossroads after my grandmother passed away about 3 years ago.  When these characters came to life in my mind, along with the character Gamma, inspired by my grandmother, it was a way for me to heal.  I decided to start from a dream I had in high school, chapter one.  Chapter two is also based on my dream as well.  I didn’t think I would have much to write about, but when I made Claudia to be more like me, it was easy.  Her first car, her first job, her first experience at camping and her grandmother having a stroke was all part of me.  Too bad Michael wasn’t real…lol!!!
Many people like Davin, which I’m really happy about because his character was inspired by my friend who passed away.  He was very likable and was a best friend to all his friends.  Patty is my friend from church.  She is exactly how I described her, social butterfly who knows everything about her friends and fashion.  I named Claudia after a student I once had many years ago.  I can still picture her face, just like an angel.  When I was much younger, I had a crush on a boy name Michael, but his character is based off my husband, protective, romantic, and silly at times.  No… he doesn’t have wings…lol!!!
Though I was busy with work, being a wife, a mother, and PTA president, I would always find time to write, even if that meant typing while I was cooking or brushing my teeth.  Crossroads was written for a fast, fun reading with likable characters.  Many have emailed me to let me know how Crossroads has helped them escaped from their everyday stress.  Also, how they’ve connected to this book because of chapter one, having a loved one passed away.
As for the sequel Between, I had so much fun writing it. Austin plays a bigger role. I introduce more nephilims-half angel and half human.  Also, the Twelve have more active roles. From what fans have told me, it’s bigger and better, what a sequel should be.
I took on a journey not knowing how rewarding it would be for me. I’ve meet so many wonderful people from all over the world through facebook, goodreads and blog sites.  I’ve made everlasting friendship where friendship knows no boundaries.  And I have to thank my grandmother who continues to watch over me from Heaven.     
Thank you for reading my post and I hope to see you on the rest of this journey while I hop from blog to blog.
