Blog Tour: Scion of the Sun

I'm excited to share a guest post with you from Nicola Marsh, author of Scion of the Sun! I'm always interested by the research authors do for their books and I love to hear about all the cool stuff they've learned along the way. Read on for the guest post, some info about her new book and a giveaway!

10 (or whatever number really) Things I Learned While Writing Scion of the Sun

1. Crystals have so many uses.

2. Tom Welling is perfect inspiration for a sexy warrior.

3. Everything does revolve around the sun.

4. The Celtic calendar is based on solar equinoxes.

5. Ogham (ancient Celtic alphabet) represents sacred trees.

6. Biokinetics can alter human DNA.

7. Astral projection/teleporting means you get to meet hot guys in two planes of existence.

8. Sororities aren’t so bad.

9. Clairsentience means you can see the future, not the past.

10. World building is incredibly hard work.

A language based on sacred trees?! That sounds pretty awesome to me. I'm a big fan of the Celts actually. Thanks so much to Nicola for being on my blog today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the tour.

When she least expects it, sixteen-year old Holly Burton’s unremarkable life is shaken to the core. A vision of the mother Holly never knew leaves her questioning everything she believes.

Eager for answers, Holly enrolls at a boarding school for highly gifted students in Wolfebane, New Hampshire. But things will get worse before they get better, as Holly accidentally transports to a parallel existence where she's confronted by a dark and ancient evil.

With the help of Joss, a sexy alpha warrior sworn to protect her, and her new BFF, the equally swoon-worthy Quinn, Holly faces her fears and an unlikely adversary in a showdown that is worse than anything she could’ve possibly imagined …
