The Space Between tour stop and $200 gift card giveaway!


I'm so excited to have Kristie Cook, best selling author of the Soul Savers Series here to introduce to you her latest release, The Space Between

When did you come up with the idea for The Space Between?
It started with a dream my husband had in October 2011. I remember this specifically because we were on a road trip and I can still see the hotel room clearly when he said, “I had the coolest dream!” He could only remember parts of it and didn’t understand exactly what was going on, but I took notes because it sounded so awesome. Then the characters came to me and it blossomed from there.

What are some interesting things you discovered during your research for the novel?
I learned a lot about living as a deaf person after growing up being able to hear, the difference between ASL and Signed English and other tidbits about the deaf community. I also learned about the concept of Twin Flames, some lesser known Greek mythology and the train routes through Italy. lol

Are you a panster or a plotter?
I used to be mostly a pantser, although even with my first book, I had key scenes in mind, including the climactic scenes. So I had an idea of where the story was going. Now I am more of a plotter. I do a lot of planning of the high and low points, plot twists, etc., ahead of time, but when I actually begin writing, I still let the story unfold naturally. Sometimes it veers off from my outline, but that’s okay. That’s what keeps it fresh and exciting.

How many books are projected for the series?
The Book of Phoenix is slated to be a trilogy. For now anyway. *wink*

Team Jeric or Team Tristan? (or is that fair... lol)
Aack! How am I supposed to answer that?! In a fight, Tristan, no doubt. He has a couple of centuries of experience over Jeric, for one. Plus some other advantages. But in my heart? I think Tristan will always hold a special place as the first book boyfriend I created, but I do love Jeric, too. And Micah. *grin*

What's next?
I’m working on Soul Savers 5, which is slated for release on June 5th.

Thanks for hanging out with me today! Can't wait to see you in person May 1st, at Romantic Times Convention in Kansas City May 1-5th. If you didn't know, we'll be hosting a meeting and greet in our room during the convention. If you'd like to connect, please leave a comment below!


About The Space Between, Part One of The Book of Phoenix:

When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between

*****

Bestselling author Kristie Cook, with over 200,000 books sold, brings you another New Adult paranormal series, The Book of Phoenix

*****

“A completely unique story with a paranormal twist . . . the perfect blend of romance and mystery with a phenomenal plot that will keep you guessing.” ~ Jessica, Confessions of a Bookaholic

“I loved this book! The characters, the romance, the plot, the originality! It had everything to make it an amazing book!” ~ Kendall, Book Crazy

*****

After a month-long dance tour through Italy, 20-year-old Leni Drago returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, the home they shared empty and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that’s left is a journal she can’t open.

Jeric Winters has been searching for a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia. When an urgent and magnetic pull draws him out of his hotel room, he comes face-to-face with the beautiful dancer who’s been haunting his dreams day and night.

Jeric’s one to stay away from—a bad-boy, hit-it-and-quit-it type—but Leni can’t escape the fervent feelings between them. As their own existences begin to crumble around them and shadowy forms that are more monsters than men attack, they realize there’s more to the connection between them than physical fascination.

To solve the riddle their lives have become, they must embark on a journey that requires them to face their pasts and release their true souls. And they must do it fast—dark ones from another world are closing in, intent on killing them. Permanently.
