From the author of Chameleon comes this historical fiction novel, Mark of the Leopard, the second in the African history series, a story of romance, mystery, danger and betrayal set against a backdrop of wild lands and raging seas. In 1703 Sabrina Barrington and her children are shipwrecked and presumed drowned off the Cape of Good Hope, the site of the present-day city of Cape Town. Fourteen years later, an investigator tells Sabrina’s brother, Lucien Castle, that one of his sister’s children has been seen on the island of Madagascar, off Africa’s east coast. It is imperative to return the youngster to England before his twenty-fifth birthday, otherwise his grandfather, the corrupt and detested Robert Barrington, will usurp his rightful inheritance. Castle is the only one who can confirm the young man is not an impostor. In order to do this he must leave the comfort of Amsterdam in Holland and embark on a journey into the unknown. Will Castle be able to overcome his demons and find his nephew in time? Or will he succumb to the perils that beset his epic expedition every step of the way? In a voyage that takes them from the untamed island of Madagascar to the storm-tossed Dutch outpost at the Cape of Good Hope, Castle and his companion must face innumerable dangers and battle not only rival investigators but also each other.

Enjoy!

Interview with Jaymin Eve, author of Spurn, the second in the Walker series

Jaymin small image copy

Q: What gave you the idea for a Walker series?
A: I have always loved science fiction and fantasy books, but hated getting overwhelmed with all the complicated terms and worlds. Not to mention the long and unmentionable names for everything. I would constantly find myself going back to try to remember who had that name and what world we were on. Some very talented authors have created absolutely incredible worlds, but I wanted to try it from a YA perspective.

For a long time I had this story and the worlds in my head. It would keep me awake at night as I planned them out. My whole aim was to still combine all the wonders of fantasy and creating worlds but without so much of the technicality – for those of us who like lighter reads.

Q: Where did Abby’s character spring from?
A: She was in my head from the start, demanding I tell her story. She thinks it’s pretty interesting, actually. I love her optimistic toughness, her love for her friends and family, her snarkiness and the way she doesn’t take crap from anyone. She’s strong and the perfect person to take on the Seventine. But she’s also not perfect. She will have to grow and learn and change.

Q: Where did Lucy’s character spring from?
A: She started at Abby’s best friend/sidekick. But there is much more to Lucy. She is special in ways no one anticipated and her role will be very important. Let’s just say the girls were drawn together for a reason.

Q: As a mother of young children, how do you find time to write?
A: Ha, ha. Oh, gosh. It is tough. My children are my number one priority (yes, Abby, I’m sorry to say you have to take second place), so at the moment while they are so small I basically squish writing in when they’re asleep. It does make it difficult to try to get my stories out before people want to kill me for the cliffhangers. But so far I’ve managed to precariously balance both worlds. (Don’t ask my husband what he thinks of my time management.)

Q: What is your writing process?
A: I have a basic outline of each book and then an overall plan for the series, but other than that I simply sit down and let my characters tell their story. I write from the start of a book to the finish, even though I know some authors write different chapters at different times (i.e. starting with chapter 8, because it’s clear in their mind). I can’t do that. I have to follow the story along and see the character development.

Q: Which books or series do you think compare best to the Walker saga series?
A: That’s tough. I love many, many books in the YA, adult fantasy and paranormal genre, but I haven’t read many that are like the Walker saga. I like Jennifer Armentrout. Her books have some similarities.

Q: If your series was made into a movie, who would you choose for the starring roles?
A: … Oh, sorry about that. I was daydreaming about actually seeing my worlds in the movies. What a dream that would be. The Walkers would the hardest roles to fill; they are so tall, gorgeous and larger than life. It would take a certain person to capture that arrogance ;). I’ve never thought about who would be in the starring roles. I might do some research and see what I find.

Hottest fantasy romance series to hit the ether in months

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00034]
Do you have your copy of First World, the hottest fantasy romance series to hit the ether in recent months? Check out the rave reviews at
http://www.authorsally.net/AmazonFirstWorld
A paranormal romance series.
An epic journey.
If the Seventine are released, will anyone survive?
Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.
In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had.
But every morning reality returns. Sometimes she could just cry. But she won’t; she’ll keep on kicking butt instead.
Then without warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything changes. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since.
And it is time to return home. To the First World. A land of unimagined beauty.
Abigail will journey to find the family she’s always hoped for and the soul mate that has been center stage of her dreams.
But in the end will the secrets lurking on First World spell disaster for not only her existence but that of all worlds?
First World is book one in the Walker saga, a seven-book paranormal fantasy series.
