Today marks the beginning of Forged in Fire two week book tour! Spotlights, interviews, fun posts, a giveaway, and much more - you don't want to miss a single stop. (In the end of this post I'll list all the stops.)
And since I'm inviting you to descend to the Underworld (where the story is set), I thought it would only be fair to give you a tour first.
We'll start small - you really don't want to be running around with no clue as to where you are. It might prove hazardous to your health. And since I don't want anything bad to happen - I'm afraid insurance might not cover being eaten by hellhounds - I'm giving you a guide, and a protector.
Someone chose to come here? Voluntarily? Well, at least I'm not the only one crazy here. Just don't try to swim in the Faron River - I might not be able to save you if you did.
It's liquid fire. I had that pleasure once before, and I'm not eager to repeat it.
Now, I see the map of my current "home". Fun place, what can I say. You can come to watch a fight, make a bet, select a lover - it's an entertainment center. If you are a demon that is. You are not? Well...uhm... keep your head down, don't make eye contact; but if someone tries to mess with you - punch them. Swords and daggers work too. Or a good kick.
That reminds me - I hope you packed a few warm clothes. The Underworld might me hot, but the Floating Island is not. You can actually freeze your toes there.
Like I said, a fun place.
So, did we convince you to pick the Underworld as your holiday destination? Not yet?
Then don't forget to tune in next time, as I'm sure the luxury hotels, hot saunas, and an amazing view will enslave you.

“Bow before your master!” One of the guards spat an order.
"The action is as steamy as the setting . . . There is plenty of intrigue . . . Interesting and exciting"

I'll be posting the detailed information about the Book Tour soon!
Take care, enjoy your journey through the Underworld, and don't forget to share this exciting news with friends.
AN EXQUISITE PUNISHER LIVING ON BORROWED TIME...
Desiree ruled a domain swarming with the worst sinners ever to walk on Earth, until her dual nature became too dangerous for the Demon Council to ignore. Now banished, she finds herself intrigued by an enigma she encounters--a decent soul in the land of rotten scum.
A FIGHTER DOOMED TO HELL...
To save his newborn nephews, Ciaran sacrificed his life to spend eternity in the Underworld. Yet becoming a plaything to be used and abused is a fate he is determined to avoid.
A PASSION FORGED IN FIRE...
Temptation stokes the flames in both their hearts and bodies, but when faced with the reality of their circumstances, those flames might burn them both to ash. For in a demon world defined by supernatural abilities, a human must remain a slave, and she--free from any weakness her enemies might take advantage of.

I’ve been tagged by Kyra Halland to participate in the Meet My Character Blog Tour, and I won’t lie, I was intrigued, flattered even, but at the same time I almost said no. Why? It’s simple. At the time I didn’t have where to post more than a few words, much less the seven answers this blog tour is known for.
And when I told Kyra about my predicament, she offered to host me. Which I was very grateful for. Still am. But I figured it was a perfect time to roll up my sleeves and build a site. (And with a friend’s help I managed to construct the skeleton of what will hopefully be a site one day. :) )
But I digress…
First of all, thanks for inviting me, Kyra. And for everything else.
You can stalk Kyra at: Goodreads | Website | Facebook
Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy, and has also always loved a good love story. She combines those two loves in her novels, dark-edged tales of fantasy, heroism, and romance. Kyra lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two lesspatient cats, and two young adult sons. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up.
And now, I’ll get this party started by telling that while I considered introducing Amira, the heroine of my first paranormal romance Till Death and Beyond, I decided against it. Mainly because my mind is so occupied with the sequel, other characters are louder in my head.
I’m about 75k into my current WIP—Forged in Fire (working title). Which means I won’t be introducing the heroine yet. Only the hero.
1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
Ciaran. He is the cousin of the heroine of Till Death and Beyond, and a very much fictional character.
2) When is the story set?
The story is set in the fictional world, the Witch World. More specifically, the Underworld.
3) What should we know about him/her?
Orphaned at the age of eight, Ciaran is a little bit pigheaded, and overprotective of those he loves. And that’s how he finds himself in quite the quandary (by the end of Till Death and Beyond).
As the saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
Well, ending up in the Underworld, with no control over one’s fate could mess up a life pretty badly. Especially for someone who needed to control… everything. Ciaran has to come to terms with the new existence.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
To survive. Mostly. Hell is not a sauna.
Of course, when his heroine comes into the picture, his goals shift a bit.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
As mentioned above, the working title is Forged in Fire, and since it’s the first time I divulged any information about my second book, so I’m afraid it’s impossible to read more about it. Yet.
7) When can we expect the book to be published?
There is no set date yet, but my goal is to publish it around January 2015.
And now it’s my turn to pass the torch!
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal and historical romance. When not writing or reading, one may find Andrea dancing in Zumba.
Currently, she has two novels published with Crimson Romance. The Garnet Dagger - a fantasy/ paranormal romance, and Viking Fire. – historical romance with a touch of magic. She hopes you will enjoy the stories as much as she did writing them.
Jennifer Ellis is the author of A Pair of Docks, and In the Shadows of the Mosquito Constellation (2014), an action-adventure romance. She lives in a small ski town in Canada with her husband, cat and two boys. When she is not skiing, running, doing ballet (badly) or writing, she works as an environmental researcher and project manager in the fields of climate change, food security and energy.
Don’t forget to check them out.
I write books I would love to read with fantasy worlds I would like to be a part of. Where anything is possible, but nothing more magical than love.
