Book Tours: Book Excerpt The Blue Witch



Book Excerpt

Alex lit a candle off a red ember in the fireplace and ran upstairs to the loft.  “Beren!  Beren, wake up!”  She shook him awake.  “You have to warn Lord Ellsworth about a traitor.  Someone set me up and it had to be an islander.  They were the only ones who knew I had blue hair in my ears.  I’ve been keeping them covered.”

“How did you get here?”

“I escaped with the Blue People and they took me to Rosella, the Sea Sprite of Avalon, where I found Tap, Lord Root’s nephew.  Lord Reginald came after us, but Rosella stopped him.”

“Tap who?  Rosella?”

“She’s a mermaid.  I didn’t think they existed, but she does.  Anyway, she killed him—Lord Reginald, that is, she turned him to stone, and then Tap told me I had to go back to Eledon—my grandmother’s sick, really sick—she’s dying.  We ran away before the soldiers found us.  Tell Lord Ellsworth I’m going to bring back the Holy Grail for him.  I think it’s somewhere in Eledon.  Oh, and by the way, thanks for coming to my defense.”  She ran down the stairs.

“Wait a minute!”  Beren held out his hand as she disappeared.  “What happened?”  He ran his hand through his hair and got out of bed, putting on his robe, cursing under his breath.

In her bedroom, Alex opened the wardrobe door and changed into her brown britches and a white muslin shirt.  Instantly, her disposition improved, but she took note that her old clothes were now much too big on her.  Around her right thigh, she strapped on her Elfin Blade and nodded.  But she took two additional notches on the belt than she used to, and it seemed heavier.

She opened a drawer and pulled out her knives.  One knife slid into each boot, and each wrist cuff held an assassin’s blade.  Then, she slipped on her brown leather vest and reached into the pocket where she found the gold knot she’d forgotten about.

The knot was the size of her hand with a hole in the middle, but made of pure gold.  Lord Governor Tyrone, her benefactor on Seaward Isle, gave it to her as a parting gift.  Engraved on the front was the Elf symbol for gold with a unicorn underneath it.  Maybe it could help Beren and Lila.

From the top of the wardrobe, she grabbed her sword, Challenger and strapped it on.  She pulled the blade out and stared at it for a second—it’d been months since she had done that, and it seemed like a stranger in her hand.  She sighed and returned it to its scabbard.  Strapping the sword belt around her waist, she tightened it as far as she could, but it was still loose.  Then she tied her cloak around her neck and picked up the gold knot.

Author Interview with Sharon Johnson




How long have you been writing?

I started writing when I was about eleven or twelve years old. Mostly I wrote fanfictions of my favorite cartoons and books. I even branched out to poetry and was published in a poetry book when I was about twelve years old. No I will not tell you the name, it’s truly embarrassing. I published my first novel in 2015 and since that first book went live it’s been full steam ahead.

What was the most challenging part about writing The DOUBT Series?

Each book has its own challenges, but the most difficult part of the Doubt Series as a whole is creating paranormal creatures and magic users that do can do the impossible. I choose to keep my series in our world but introduce secret world that exists right beside us. So I had to make sure that each supernatural character has an origins story that can be explained in the world we know. Maintaining that balance of the extraordinary and mundane is without question the most challenging.

What do you enjoy the most about being an author?

I love telling stories, creating people who say and do the things I can only dream of. I enjoy creating characters that are flawed and complex, who don’t always make the right choices but are willing to grow. My number one goal is to entertain.

Will you write more books in this series?

Yes. The Doubt Series is actually a serial and as of now I am planning several books that take us deeper into the shifter world. I can’t give an exact number of books, because try as I might to predict what’s next I can only go where the story takes me.

  Do you have any works in progress?

Right now I am working on the final three books in my military series, The Gentlemen’s League. Once those are completed I will be working on the next book in the Doubt Series, and maybe a holiday novelette or two.

Book Excerpt Crimson Fire



Book Excerpt

The rain poured down in torrents, slanting at a steep angle and driving into the deck, sounding like a thousand hammers. Above the ship, lightning flashed across the black sky, accompanied by roll after deafening roll of thunder.

Tabia had read enough by then to know that some sorcerers had the ability to control the weather, or at least influence it, but every time she’d started to broach the subject with her mistress, her stomach had rebelled, sending her back to the railing. She considered attempting it on her own and though she didn’t relish the idea, she couldn’t help but try.

 She hung on tightly to the railing, looked up at the sky, blinking through a bolt of lightning and began to stare. As with the chakleti, nothing happened for a long while. She’d decided it wasn’t going to when the sky started to glow like a sunset against the thunderheads.

 The crew began to shout. Tabia didn’t need to look at them to know they were pointing at the clouds as they shifted, breaching overhead. A patch of blue sky visible in the centre.

She was doing it.

Tabia began to grin as the ship settled. The wind slowed to a stiff breeze. The temperature rose swiftly as the cloud split to reveal the sun. She followed them with her eyes, pushing them a mile from their anchorage.

The crew let out a resounding cheer and Tabia turned, triumphant, to face them. Until she heard a resounding crack echo across the ocean.

Whipping her head back, she watched the clouds disintegrate. The water within them gushed from the sky, hundreds of gallons raining a tumult on perhaps a quarter mile of sea in a circle around the ship.

The waves rose, slowly at first, before the force of the rain pushed them higher and faster, smashing them against the hull. The ship started to list dangerously to one side. Everything not nailed down slid down the deck to the opposite railing, including Tabia, who slammed painfully into the mast, bounced and slid the rest of the way as the waves threatened to engulf the ship.
