One of my writer friends and Twitter superstar, Lilo Abernathy, was chosen by Amazon for the much coveted Kindle Daily Deal. Her book, The Light Who Shines, will be featured for one day only at a price of $1.99.
So Why am I writing a blog post about another writer's work?
First, she's a great writer. Second, she's very supportive of other authors.
Here is the book description from Amazon:
When Supernatural Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime, it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run. Using her innate sixth sense, Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire that was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.
Blue and her clever wolf Varg follow a trail that starts at the Cock and Bull Tap and leads all through the town of Crimson Hollow. Between being sidelined by a stalker who sticks to the shadows and chasing a suspect who vanishes in thin air, the case is getting complicated. If that isn't enough, Dark Vampire activity hits a record high, and hate crimes are increasing. However, it's Blue's growing feelings for Jack Tanner, her magnetic Daylight Vampire boss, that just might undo her.
While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, it seems someone else is conducting a search of their own. Who will find whom first?
Danger lurks in every corner, and Blue needs all her focus in this increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.
The Light Who Shines has 154 reviews, with a 4.7 star average. Not bad for a debut book!
"The book abounds with action, supernatural creatures and tinges of sexiness . . . and will please readers looking for a gun-toting, magical hero who's independent yet yearning for companionship."
"Bluebell Kildare, a Gifted human with blue eyes and a streak of blue hair, fights crime as a member of the Supernatural Homicide Investigation Unit . . . An often enjoyable delve into urban fantasy."
"As much as she's defined by her butt-kicking attitude, Kildare is complex, confident and introspective . . . She has the ability to sense souls."
"Bottom Line: Excellent novel . . . Highly recommended and will be continuing with the series, great new world."
---Douglas C. Meeks, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
As a writer, I wish Lilo Abernathy the best. I've just started reading the book, so I can't give a review yet, but I will in a future blog post.
Life is an adventure. I read to expand my horizons and write because I must.
