Today I have the supreme pleasure of sharing a special author's debut book with you. Danielle and I met when she signed up to review my debut novel and she has been one of my biggest and best cheerleaders since. It's been a joy to watch her write her first book and to publish it this summer and now it's on tour. Let me introduce you to Guided...
Series: The Jade Ring Series book 1
Author: Danielle Young
Genre: YA Paranormal
Release Date: July 15, 2014
Jo is a descendant from the most powerful Wiccan family the world has ever known and is destined to be more powerful than those before her.
But she doesn’t even know it. As her powers awaken Jo discovers a threat to her family line.
Protected by her best friends, and GUIDED by her Angel protector, Jo must learn to harness her powers and discover her family secrets before time runs out.
More than her life hangs in the balance.
Danielle knows of my love for playlists and music. Songs can create a story line and define a character. So she decided to share one of her playlists for Guided with us and I LOVE these songs!
I look forward to hearing them as I read Guided. Check out this post from Danielle.
When I wrote Guided I had music for the book and music just for Jasper. Jasper is a complex character that has deep feelings for Jo. And I really needed to pull on music to write some of his scenes. Without music to pull me through I’m not sure how Jasper would have turned out. But he turned out to be my favorite character. Naturally some of the songs bridge both the book and Jasper, but there are some songs that are strictly Jasper.
