Indie Author Spotlight – Lilo Abernathy

I would like to introduce you to one of my many writer friends.

Lilo Abernathy is a somewhat eccentric, deep-thinking, warm-hearted young woman of at least 43 years. She started out as a restaurant chain hostess and worked her way up to the exciting world of global mergers and acquisitions. She has enjoyed an on again/off again relationship with formal education and has been affectionately referred to as information hound. In the evenings, she fills her writing breaks by scanning the internet for answers to provocative questions, such as: “What causes diamonds to be formed in different colors?”

One thing that never changes is Lilo’s ongoing love affair with books. A born bibliophile, by age ten she finished all the children’s books in the house and started devouring the adult section. By age 15, she was working her way through grocery store book aisles and libraries. Just as Picasso had his blue period, Lilo had her own periods of readership–urban fantasy, paranormal romance, Gothic novels, etc. Now she’s planning on creating a bookshelf for you to enjoy.

For fans of paranormal romance and urban fantasy here is a good place to start:

The Light Who Shines
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; and she vows to catch the killer. 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 sexy 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.

Meet Blue:

Bluebell Kildare: Blue is a Supernatural Homicide Detective and a gifted empath who has a pure spirit and a will of steel. She was orphaned at a young age and has had a tough life so far. Yet, she continually picks herself up by the boot straps and fights to do what is right, regardless of the cost. Just how high will the cost be?

Meet Romance Author Jennifer Sage

To find a writer who isn’t passionate about their work is rare. I don’t think you can be a writer for very long unless the love of writing consumes you. Sure – lots of people can crank out a few pages of well-written prose, maybe a decent poem or two, but to sit down day after day for years on end and write because something inside won’t let you do anything else…that takes a certain type of person.

Today I want to introduce you to such a person.

I only met her recently, but her passion for her work struck me immediately and it shone with the same intensity as her bright blue eyes – to the point where I almost regretted not being a fan of romance novels (I said ALMOST – geez, the last thing I need is for Ike and Brewski to hear that!).


Her name is Jennifer Sage and she is a fantasy/paranormal urban romance author.

Her new novel Immortal Dreams will be released tomorrow (Friday Sept. 6, 2013) and I’m helping with her release party festivities by sharing the appropriate info with you.

Also as part of the celebration, Jennifer will join Armand Rosamilia, Becky Pourchot and me on our radio show (The Castaways – Three Hour Tour) tomorrow night for an interview so tune in to that as well (8:00 pm Friday night on Flagerbeachradio.com)

First – let’s find out what Immortal Dreams is all about:

Isabel has had some very unusual experiences when it comes to men.

In fact, they typically tend to steer completely clear of her. One lousy tornado and a few storms and she is dubbed ‘lightning girl’ by all. However, on the eve of her 22nd birthday things change literally, overnight.When Isabel wakes up in a dream with a man not fit for human consumption she can’t believe it. And upon waking things go even more haywire. Never could she have imagined the world that she sees once the ‘blinders’ are off. Abandoned by the very person who sent these gifts to her to see the world for what it is she is naturally skeptical of it all.

Her men problems before were laughable – Enter two of the most gorgeous creatures she has ever laid eyes upon – Add a curse and a requirement to pick one in the next 9 days (Make that nights actually, since she can only reach them in her dreams). Oh, and it just so happens if she picks the wrong one the veil between all the magical realms could be destroyed and create ultimate chaos and death.

Both men want to seduce her and make her his, but only one will lead to restoring the realms, and her heart.

So heavy the burden, so great the stakes…Will she even survive the war that has already begun to rage between the worlds? There are the waking hours too, that are contending for her fate.

And very little is on her side…

Now let’s learn a little bit about Jennifer in her own words:

Jennifer SageLike any author, you can find pieces of my soul in my words and within the worlds created from the canvas of my mind. I love everything medieval even though my stories are fantasy/paranormal urban romances.

I love reading, writing, family time, movies, cooking, playing, great wine and stimulating conversation – not necessarily in that order!

KeltorKeltor will be my third published novel however it is off the shelves as I seek representation for the series. Writing and editing is done in my , eh hem, spare time and as a single mom and full time employee in the financial world, it thrills me that I’ve managed to do any of this.

When I write, I never know how the story is going to really end. Always an HEA, but as the characters, world and plot develop it feels as if it’s no longer me writing the story, but my characters themselves.

 Immortal Dreams will be available for purchase Sept. 6, 2013.

Watch for the release of Immortal Bound next month and…

Keltor is available for ARC reviews only while I seek representation. You can see the wonderful feedback for all my books at any major retailer or on Goodreads.com. If you are a blogger or just an avid reader with a Goodreads account please message me for more information.

Thank you for the support and happy reading!
