Book Tour for Elora's Match by Liia Ann White (Guest Post & GIVEAWAY)

There's an intriguing new book on the bookshelves, Elora's Match, and courtesy of Goddess Fish Promotions I get to introduce you to this exciting new paranormal series.  Thanks too author Liia Ann White for being here today talking about why we love the paranormal genre and for letting me bring a giveaway to you as well.  So let's get on with the fun.....

Why are readers drawn to the paranormal?

The paranormal world is so different from the world we live in, it gives us a chance to escape reality and delve into a place most of us will never truly understand. People read to find something other than reality to focus on, even if only for a short time. And you can’t get much farther from the real world than the paranormal.

Let’s face it – reading about shifters, vampires, witches, banshees, succubi and other supernatural beings is just plain fun. Letting your imagination go wild and focus on characters with superhuman abilities, whether in romance, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, or any other genre, is always interesting.

People will always be intrigued by the paranormal. Whether you believe in it or not, it’s going to be a hot topic for a long time to come.

As a reader, I, personally, am drawn to the paranormal because I love things that are different. I enjoy reading different takes on species such as vampires, werewolves and ghosts, as well as encounters people have had. Which is why I’ll always read it and probably always write it.

What intrigues you about the paranormal?

Great post Liia and I look forward to what my commenters have to say in answer to that question!

Elora's parents mysteriously disappeared when she was fifteen. She vowed to find answers -- discover what really happened to them. But after twenty-five years of traveling the world she has come up empty handed. Feeling tired and lonely, she settles down in the city her best friend, Caleb, calls home. To lead a regular human existence for a while; like he does.

One problem; they're not human. They're Different -- a rare supernatural race known for their beauty, strength and supernatural abilities.

Elora is led to a man by a series of visions. Cue Kadin; powerful, sexy and also Different. He is her match -- her soul-mate. Her life has never felt so complete.

But it's not all good news. Elora must now deal with a rogue demon Elder hell-bent on taking over Lucifer's reign over Hell. To succeed she needs to steal Elora's power. When she's facing the fight of her life, can Elora really trust Kadin?


An almost audible buzzing erupted in the back of my mind, the same sensation I had in my visions.


He appeared before me, looking as physically perfect as ever. His dark hair fell over his face. The smooth outline of his jaw off set his symmetrical features. Those flawless, full lips spread into a smile, and his teal eyes bored into my own.

"Elora," he said with a smile, his velvet smooth voice caressing my skin. I felt myself drawn to him. There was an invisible connection between us, making me want to cling to him. To run my fingers through that thick hair of his, trace the contours of his broad chest, and kiss those luscious lips. Lust burned within me like never before.

I forced myself to ignore it, instead eyeing him warily. "What are you doing here?"

"That was quite a show." He chuckled lightly. "I was going to jump in, but I see you can handle yourself."

"What are you doing here?" I repeated, in no mood for games.

Clasping his hands behind his back, he took a few steps toward me. "Those two have been following me for a few weeks now." He gestured to where the pile of ash once was. "They stopped tonight, so I tracked them here where they attacked you."

"Why have they been following you?"

"I'm not sure." He pursed his lips. "I followed them tonight, thinking they were going back to their controller. Apparently, I was wrong."

"Why are you really here?"

"I just told you."

"What if I don't believe you?"

I love all things paranormal. I spend my childhood daydreaming about far off lands and living in my own little fantasy world. I watched shows like ’Unsolved Mysteries’ and read books on witchcraft, fairies, demons, ghosts and all other sorts of supernatural creatures, including mutants (I love X-Men).

I’m a complete geek and collect Disney and Star Wars memorabilia.

When not writing, I can be found reading, playing video games or spending times with my adorable doggies.

I’m a big animal lover and vegan. I live in Perth with my family, which includes two adorable dogs, two birds and a handful of feisty fish.

I’m always interested in meeting new people, so drop me a line!

  4. Definitely because it's unusual. So easy to get caught up in! Paranormal is the ultimate escape!


  5. The paranormal world add excitement to a book. Real life can be so well real. Now add a gorgeous werewolf and things just got a whole lot better or interesting as the case may be.


  6. Paranormal is intriguing because their is not limit to reality. I hate when something totally unrealistic pulls me out of the story, in PNR the suspension of reality as we know it makes it possible to create rich and fun worlds!
