MOVING AND GIVEAWAY! YAY!

Hey Guys!

Come and see my new blog with my very first giveaway HERE.

I hope you like it. It’s one of my favorite books! By awesome K.C Blake!

Here is the Synopsis of the Book!

The Noah sisters rule Titan High with their beauty, brains, and magical powers.

Each year they play a secret game: Crushed. The girls pick their targets carefully and blow enchanted dust into the boy’s faces, charming them, but this year Kristen makes a grave mistake. She chooses the wrong boy and almost dies that same day. Coincidence? Maybe.

But something isn’t quite right about Zach Bevian. He doesn’t behave like a boy who’s been Crushed. He goes from hot to cold, from looking at her with contempt to asking her out on a date. She doesn’t know what to think. Does he hate her or is he truly falling for her? Is he trying to kill her, or is he trying to save her?

 

I TOTALLY LOVED IT! SO STOP BY AND HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN ONE COPY!

Character Quest: Day 7! The end :(




We have come to our 7th and final day of the Resistance Character Quest. For our final day, we are welcoming Gabe to the blog!





Gabe’s Bio: Vanquisher in Homer’s clan, Gabe is a compassionate, giving leader, but sometimes brooding and introspective. While leadership is a natural role for him, he sometimes longs to be the one who is taken care of.










Welcome, Gabe. Glad to have you here to SUBDUE our snooping minds! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty of it all…

What’s your favorite book?

1984 by George Orwell. My favorite short story is “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut. Funny, I was always drawn to dystopian stories in high school, and now look where I’m at.

What worries you most these days?

Never getting rid of the reapers, never getting back to normal, never getting back home. But mostly, losing those I care about.

What do you like most about Clara? Least?

What I like most? Her smile, her honesty, her eyes. The way she bites her lip when she’s thinking about something.
Least? When she closes herself off to me. I can’t help her when she pushes me away. Sometimes, I wish I was a Tracer like Homer so I could just talk to her directly mind-to-mind. I wonder if she could block me out then. Hmmm…that’s something I’ll have to ask Homer.

In your Setti clan, who is the most difficult to live with and why?

Well, no one is really difficult, but Ben snores really loud sometimes. Honestly, I’m probably the most difficult because I tend to always think I’m right about things. (Of course, that’s because I usually am.)

What’s a quote that would represent your life right now?

“Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens.” J.R.R. Tolkien


Thanks so much for stopping by and chatting with us today, Gabe. It’s been great having you here!

Character Quest: Day 6!



Welcome to day #6 of the Resistance Character Quest. We hope you are all finding our bios and questions interesting and enlightening. Today we are privileged to welcome Sonya to the blog.




Sonya’s Bio: Vanquisher for Herrald’s clan. There is no one who will tell you like it is the way Sonya will—whether you like it or not. She’s strong-willed almost to a fault. Jeremy’s nickname for her is “she-cat.” And she totally deserves it.









It’s so great to have you with us here today, Sonya! We’re glad you stopped by to QUELL our inquisitive minds! On with our interview…

 What is your favorite movie?
Kill Bill by Quentin Tarantino. Uma Thurman kicks
ass in that movie. So cool.
What is a special childhood memory?
Well,
I certainly don’t divulge this kind of information often, but I’ll be honest
with you. My favorite childhood memory was Christmas when I was 9 years old. My
dad was on tour in Afghanistan, and I knew he wouldn’t be home in time. Still,
I also knew that he would send me something special. That morning, it was just
Mom, Grandpaw and me. I kept opening presents, every time hoping it was the
special one from Dad. After opening everything under the tree, Mom finally gave
me a small, red-wrapped package the size of a jewelry box.
The
way my mom smiled with tears in her eyes, I knew this was the one. But what
could it be? The box was so light. My dad knew I didn’t care for jewelry, not
really. I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy. Very excited, I unwrapped it and
opened the box gently. Inside, there was a small, square sheet of paper. In my
dad’s handwriting, it said, “I love you, Buttercup.  Look outside.”
I
ran to the window and pushed opened the curtains. There in the middle of the
front yard was my dad, beaming from ear to ear with a giant red ribbon wrapped
around him. Needless to say, it was a happy reunion—the best Christmas ever.
(If
you tell any of the others my nickname was ‘Buttercup,’ I might have to kill
you.)
 In your clan, who is the easiest to get
along with?
That’s
easy. Hannah. Sometimes I think she should’ve been a Healer. She’s got that
serene, giving spirit, like an angel or something. Sooooooo not like me. Nice
to have her around though.
Do you like to sing and
dance?
Sing? Uh, no. Never. But I like to dance, or at least I used to.
My best friend Jenny and I used to hang out at the top of the bleachers with
the band during football games and dance right alongside them. That was so much
fun. Wow. I haven’t thought about that in a long time. Feels like years ago,
not months.
 What’s a quote that would represent your
philosophy on life?
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind
don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” By Dr. Seuss.
I’ve
always been one to do and say what I mean and what I feel. Sometimes, I piss
people off, but whatever. Like the quote says, those people don’t matter. I am
who I am. No apologies.

 
Thanks so much for stopping by and letting us into your world a bit, Sonya, it was great having you here!

Character Quest: Day 5



Today we’re moving on the day #5 of the Resistance Character Quest. We’re gonna be having a little chat with Michael today!





Michael’s Bio:  Guardian for Herrald’s clan, there is one word that describes Michael—confident. Some might say he’s cocky, but he doesn’t think so. A motto he lives by? “Know what you want in life then go for it.”











It’s so great to have you stop by here today, Michael. We want to welcome you and hope you can break the BUBBLE of curiosity we hold about you! On with our questions!

What’s your favorite book?


Well, I’m not a big reader, but our English teacher once made us read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. That story has always stuck with me. Jean Valjean was a good guy, but was corrupted by a cruel world, becoming sort of heartless after a 19-year stint in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. When he finally leaves prison, one man teaches him that anyone can change from bad to good, from darkness to light. Valjean ends up doing just that. I love this kind of story. I have to believe that there is redemption for anyone, no matter what dark path they are on.

What do you miss most about high school?


I miss football the most—the guys, my coaches, my best friend, Daniel. There was something about being on that field with my offensive line, calling out plays in the huddle, hearing the crowds in the stands and the coaches calling from the sidelines that made sense to me. Everything was simpler, easier to figure out. Now, the world’s upside-down and we don’t know what’ll happen from one day to the next.

What’s a quote that would represent your life right now?


I remember this guy reciting a monologue from Henry V on Speech Night the very week before the Reapers came. His words are constantly in my head. Well, I guess they’re actually Shakespeare’s words. He said, “From this day to the ending of the world, we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.”

Yeah, that’s how I feel these days, but it goes for the girls, too. I feel tied to the Setti. We’re in this together till the end.


What is a special childhood memory?


Daniel has been my best friend since 1st grade. Even then he was a big kid. He’s always been the big kid. He’s also always been the nice guy. Well, Daniel and I lived about a block apart. When we were in 5th grade, I remember there was this middle-school bully that lived in a house between ours. What was his name, Gary or Jerry, something like that.

One day, I was waiting for Daniel to meet me at my house, and he was taking forever. So I got on my bike and rode after him. Halfway there, I see Gary what’s-his-face with two other scrawny kids surrounding Daniel, throwing globs of dirt at him. Daniel’s just standing there, taking it, even though he was bigger than all of them.

So I rush into the circle, pushing one of the kids to the ground and asked Daniel what was going on. He sort of whispered that his mom told him it was bad to fight. I told him there was always a time to fight and this was that time. It was like a light went off. Daniel pushed skinny kid #2 to the ground then punched Gary right in the nose. Gary squealed like a girl and ran off.

That might seem odd to define a “special childhood memory,” but I’m fond of it, because it was the day Daniel stood up for himself and never looked back. Yes, he was still the nice guy, but no one tried to pick on the “big guy” after that.

What draws you to Clara? Do you think she feels the same?


What’s not to draw me? Number one, there’s undeniable chemistry between us. She’s hot, and well, she seems to like what she sees in me. It’s kind of obvious the way she looks at me all the time. Number two, we’re both Guardians. We just fit in every way.

And yes, she definitely feels the same way. No doubt.

Michael your answers to these questions were certainly enlightening! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending time with us!

Character Quest: Day 4: Jeremy!



It’s day #4 of the Resistance Character Quest. We hope you’re enjoying getting to know these characters! Today we’re gonna hear a bit about Jeremey!






Jeremy’s Bio: Sounder for Homer’s clan. Jeremy is calm, cool, and confident.  And, yes, he knows it. His favorite hobbies besides listening to his iPod? Annoying Ben and teasing Clara. Something no one really knows about him? He loves playing the piano.




So excited to have you with us today, Jeremy! Welcome! I hope you have a BLAST answering our questions! Let’s get down to them….


What do you miss most about life before the Reapers came?

Let’s see, I hated school, so I didn’t miss much there. Except maybe art class. That was cool. I hated my home-life, so not much to miss there. I know my parents weren’t much of parents, but I do hope they made it out okay. (I doubt it though, so I don’t like to think about that.)
I’d say the only thing I really miss is downloading new songs to iTunes and listening to my favorite bands’ new music. I mean, the idea of no new music being created is driving me crazy! Is this it? Will there be nothing else? That’s insane to think about. We’ve gotta do something about that.
If you could have any three people from history over to dinner, who would it be?

Beethoven, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Amy Lee. Dude, that would be so awesome! Napoleon could tell us stories about fighting in battles and all that, Beethoven could compose music for it, and Amy could sing while I play the piano. Cool, right? I mean, I’ve always wanted to know if Napoleon really was as short as they say he was. I think history experts just make up a lot of stuff. History books are probably full of just made-up opinions by some stuck-up professor somewhere along the line.
I’d bet my iPod that Beethoven was probably a Sounder, too. I just really wanna know. And, why Amy Lee? Have you seen the woman? Have you listened to her? She’s got a set of pipes that light me on fire. If Beethoven and Napoleon stand me up, that’s fine by me. Amy and I will just have a candlelight dinner for two.
What is your most embarrassing moment?

Don’t have one. I don’t get embarrassed.
In your Setti clan, who is the most difficult to live with and why?

Melanie is by far the most difficult. She’s gotta have everything in order and in its place. It’s like living with Mary Poppins or something. I mean, who really cares if there are socks on the floor or Ding-Dong wrappers in the car?
What’s a quote that would represent your philosophy on life?

“Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.” That’s Clint Eastwood in Outlaw Josie Wales, one of the greatest movies ever made. Next to the Star Wars movies, of course
And you can’t forget Obi-Wan Kenobi’s advice: “May the force be with you.” Don’t ever lose the


Thanks so much for coming by and chatting with us today, Jeremy. It’s been really great learning a bit more about you!
