Free Publicity Fridays

One of my favorite authors ever is Virginia Kantra.  I’ve never regretted buying and immersing myself in one of her stories.  My absolute favorite thing about her is how profound and engrossing her characters’ points of view are.  Her selkies think like beings of the sea, her angels like beings of the air.  Her human characters think in the context of their past experiences.  Every page contains proof of who her characters are at their cores and where they have been in their lives.  I hope one day I will be able to write so well.

Please enjoy these couple of memorable lines from Forgotten Seaand please run out and buy it and the other books in her Children of the Sea series. You can read more about Virginia Kantra and her books here: http://www.virginiakantra.com/

“Who are you?” the voice asked. The question pried at his brain like an oyster knife, slipping through his weakened defenses, threatening to rip him open, to plunder the soft gray flesh inside. –pp. 67-68

Only this, his mouth, his touch, his broad shoulders over her like wings. –p. 110

“Are you okay to drive?” He had the mother of all headaches, his magic choker burned like a son of a bitch, and if he didn’t lie down soon, he was going to fall down. “I’m good,” he said, trying to sound confident and cheerful instead of insane.  -p. 117

She’d just had car sex, she thought wonderingly. Naked outdoor car sex with a selkie. –p. 210

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.
