Blog Tour: Where Shadows Lie by Tialla Rising

     Excited to be part of the blog tour for Where Shadows Lie by Tialla Rising today! I haven't read this book yet, but it's certainly piqued my interest, and I hope to read it when I have the chance! :)

About the Book

His dark past haunts him. His new life taunts him. 

After twenty years in the gangs and a hefty prison sentence, an early release gives Shawn the opportunity to turn his life around.

But that isn’t so easy when gangs are involved.

Only a year into his fresh start, the gang catches on and makes Shawn’s life miserable. After all, once a gang member, always a gang member. His very blood belongs to them.

Threats become promises. Whispers become actions. Words become bullets. He must fight – not only for his life, but to save his honor, prove his integrity, and protect the woman he loves.

An ember of hope glows in the darkness, strengthening his resolve. Will her support and his determination be enough to dispel the shadows of his past?

A story of discovery and faith, love and perseverance.

Genre: Christian New Adult Suspense
Release Date: June 14th 2015

Interview with Tialla Rising

Me: Welcome to my blog, Tialla! We'll start off with: when did you first start writing?

Tialla: I started writing when I was 11. A friend and I emailed our own stories to each other and created secret fantasy worlds.  Those are such great memories!

Me: That does sound like a lovely memory! And sounds something like what I used to do with my friends! What is your favorite genre to write?

Tialla: I really like writing action-adventure. I've always loved action movies and books the best, so I suppose it's only natural that I drift toward this genre in my writing as well.

Me: What is your favorite genre to read? 

Tialla: Aside from action, I love fantasy, dystopian, and crime mystery the best. It's pretty much impossible for me to just pick one genre as my favorite when it comes to reading.

Me: Ooh, fantasy is definitely a favorite for me. And dystopian has more recently captured my interest as well! Do you have another writing project started?

Tialla: At the moment, no. I like to take a few months between finishing a big project and starting another—give myself a chance to breathe, that is. I published "Where Shadows Lie" in June after two solid years of work on it, so I'm enjoying this short break. Before long, however, I will begin my next project.

Me: Sounds perfect, :) Is there a character you're most like from Where Shadows Lie?

Tialla: I share many characteristics with Virginia. She and I are both short and I gave her my love of summer monsoons and rainy days. However, she is by far braver and emotionally stronger than me.

Me: That's neat! It's fun how parts of us come out in our characters, hey? :) Anyway, thanks for being here on my blog!
