Tour of Secrets Contest

I love book releases. There is something special about all of the efforts the author made finally coming together and having them share their inspiration with the world. And the release of a debut novel is even more special. Knowing the writer is finally seeing the end product and is sharing something so intimate with the world for the first time. Because the book writing process is an intimate one and I know from personal experience, the blood, sweat, and tears that go into the process. That’s why I’m especially glad to be able to participate in The Secret of Spruce Knoll Tour of Secrets.

The Secret of Spruce Knoll by Heather McCorkle

Following the tragic death of her parents, Eren Donovan moves to Spruce Knoll to live with her aunt. Little does Eren know the entire town of Spruce Knoll is filled with “channelers”~a magical group of people who immigrated to the small Colorado town when they were driven out of their own lands.

Channelers are tied to the fate of the world. As the world slowly dies, so do they~and they alone have the power to stop the destruction of Earth. Now, Eren learns she not only lives among them, but she is one. When she meets local boy Aiden, his charm convinces her that being a channeler may not be all bad.

WOW! Something tells me the fate of Earth might be tied to Eren. And who can resist a charming boy named, Aiden? But since this is the Tour of Secrets there must BE secrets involved…and my secret I’m going to reveal is related to Aiden, but not about him.

I got it from the secret master, herself, Heather McCorkle. Aiden’s adoptive father, Virgil is abusive — and it’s tough to have any sympathy at all for him. What he tries to hide is that he (and his wife) desperately wanted to have children, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for channelers to have children. After years of trying they became so desperate that they adopted Aiden (how I can’t tell you, that’s another secret!). But shortly after the adoption, Virgil’s wife became pregnant. That certainly complicated Virgil’s feelings about Aiden!

While that doesn’t make up for the abuse, it gives Virgil a layer as a character that we wouldn’t expect. But wait! there are PRIZES!!! Hop on over to Heather’s Blog for the full rules (and to find out how you can score extra points). And here’s what you can win:
