Happy Armageddon with Rae Lori and Ju Ephraime

 It's Armageddon. But be happy it's just The Sun Stopped Shining Blog Tour. Besides, we have two great authors to spend some time with.

First is Rae Lori. Rae has written a scary  new novel entitled

Cimmerian City (Book 1 in the Cimmerian Duology)

A terrifying new vision of the future where science is big business and government is no more.

Greed can turn a good man’s heart to stone. This is especially true in the age of commerce and large corporations. No new pill can be taken without a laundry list of side effects that the patient may have to endure. But what if the side effects are more dangerous than the pills are helpful? What if the side effect causes the patient to be immune from standard dangers, such as firearms, the climate, etc., but causes them to change into otherworldly beings?

It is seen through the eyes of a young woman named Raven Blackheart.

It is a future where corporations rule the world and political parties have been dismissed.

An Earth that is recovering from a global war that has divided two races: Humans and Dracins, quick, tough skinned creatures that are children of the side effects from 20th century pharmaceuticals. Raven awakens in this world as a product of both races and nurtured by the vice president of the main corporation in the world as a symbol of the union of races. With her help, Vice President Tyler Deamond’s corporation can take both beings off Earth—quickly becoming a waste planet—and to a new terraformed planet. But, as Raven learns, nothing is as it seems, especially concerning humans.

You can buy Rae's book at a number of your favorite outlets:

If the world ended and she could live for eternity in a book, what would it be?

"I would probably leap into The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It has lots of adventure, fantasy and magic that would be fun to explore. I've already played the online and PC games which is a nice taste of the world but hopping in whole hog would be awesome. :-)"

Second, Ju Ephraime who's written an interesting new mystery entitled THE MAN IN THE BLACK TOP HAT

Thou Shall not covet they neighbor's wife.

When Syria Warrington came home one afternoon to find an old black top hat on her front step, being a lover of all things old, she did not hesitate to take it in to her home. But bringing this top hat into her home, unknowingly exposed her to the spirit that called this hat home. The strange happenings that began to take place in her home, from that day on, had Syria questioning her sanity, as night after night she found herself caught up in sexual escapades, the like of which she had never experienced before ... Were her experiences real or imagined? Was she slowly losing her mind? What was happening to her?

What book would she choose to live eternity in? 
"Lisa Kleypas, Again The Magic. England, beautiful estate, strong human emotions, pain, suffering and GREAT SEX."

  1. How apropos, Raven Blackheart. This sounds interesting and scary. "Humans and Dracins." Are they by any chance blood drinkers? I guess I'll have to buy the book to find out.

  2. Thanks Ju! Indeed they are but a little different than traditional vampires. :-D

    Your book sounds mysterious and sensual! I'm curious to see what will happen to the heroine Syria. :-D
