Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenaged son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years.

Ironically, those years were some of Emi’s favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she’s still in love with him to this day. She’ll never forget what it was like to fall in love at such a young age — emotions she wants everyone to feel.

Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens. The stuff of fiction. 

Or so Winn Thomas always thought. 

Since being accepted into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his Changeling girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond what he’d get at his human high school. 

Luckily, Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails. Right? 

In this, the second of the 19th Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either. That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what to pick. 

Winn, though, has his own ideas about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of. 

He intends to have her pick human. 

Whether she can or not.

Sitting in front of the twelve most powerful non-humans on the earth would have shaken a lesser guy. In my case, I’d almost thrown up. Twice. 

‘Don’t worry,’ Mackenzie Thorne, my girlfriend, had said. ’‘It’s just a formality

She hadn’t known I’d have to go alone. 

Only the intake and exhalation of air in the room made any sound. Eerie light flickered from the tips of candles mounted along dark, oak-paneled walls.

I refused to look anywhere but ahead of me. To the long, wooden, medieval-length table. 

Waiting. 

Watching. 

Holding my own breath. 

For a moment, it seemed the walls began to close in on me. 

At almost midnight on the first day of the year, I prepared to accept a fate no other human had ever taken on, been given or even offered. In response, sweat pooled under my armpits as alternating cold and hot ran through me. 

The scratch of wood against wood had heads turning. Mine included. 

Nahir, the oldest of the twelve, rose from his chair. “Winford Richmond Thomas, please rise.” His voice had a gravelly, hoarse sound. 

I did as requested, my knees pressing against each other. 

Nahir moved closer to me, his grandfatherly, human form disappearing under protruding scales of deep green. His arms lengthened into dinosaur-like paws and hit the rock floor, making the room around us shake. Thick wings extended from his body, and a tail lashed out against the wall behind him, rattling the candles. 

A dragon, in the color of tropical ocean water, stood before me, huffing air from horse-sized nostrils. 

Oh. God. I’m going to die. 

Not going to die. It’s part of the test. Remember, you have to see them all. Mac’s words flowed through my mind. 

Keep breathing. 

“Master Thomas.” Josie, a siren and one of the most beautiful women I’d ever met, rose, her long flowing gown matching the color of her reddish-gold hair. I couldn’t help but stare at her. “You’ve been asked by our current changeling, Miss Maya Mackenzie Thorne, to be her teacher. Have you willingly agreed to take on this duty?” As Josie talked, she stalked forward, shimmering, shifting, the already-pretty woman becoming deadly man-hunting female—according to the legends I’d read. 

Vibes ebbed from her like the rocking tide. If she sang, throwing up would be the least of my worries. I’d be dead by sexual self-implosion. 

With a rough cough, I gathered my wits. “Yes. I have accepted. Willingly.” Every nerve ending in my body urged me to go to Josie, to let her take me and do with me whatever she wanted. A groan built in my throat, tension straining my limbs, most particularly, my crotch. Not now! The need to shift what grew sent heat to my cheeks even as Mac’s words played through again. Force yourself not to react to any of them. They’ll think you’re stronger than you are since you’re only human. 

Only human. Problem number one.

Author Interview:

First, WELCOME!! Now, tell me a little about your book and why you wanted to write this particular story….
I came up with the story a couple years ago about a girl who had to choose her ‘profession’ and it had to be one and she’d be stuck as ‘that’ for the rest of her life. And she has to choose by her 19th birthday. Day After is a continuation of the trilogy, from the boyfriend’s perspective. I like switching it up, so it made it fun to get into Winn’s head.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?
I was bored one day. Yup. There is it. No long standing, thinking about being a writer all my life. I was just bored and did it and tada, I love it!

HA! How fantastic! What inspired you to write your first book and what was it?
My first book will never see the light of day. It’s a book that’s about a photographer (which I was at the time) who can see the future and past through her camera lens. Cheesy, I know!

I actually think it sounds cool! Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? 
There’s always a basis in reality in some stuff, but I do try to mix it up and make all experiences new, just use the past and the present and maybe the future as the foundation.

How do you chose when/which characters die in your books? 
That comes based on the story itself. I never go in intending to kill someone off.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I love J.A. Belfield’s work.

I do believe we all do 🙂 Who do you look up to as a writer?
Anyone who goes after their dream. Yup. 

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book? 
Not a bit. I love the book the way it is.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Finding time. I work full time, have three kids, am a photographer … you see? So much stuff! I have to make time. When I do, I can kick out tons of words.

Holy…. WOW you are my new hero 🙂 What book are you reading now? Or what genre? My followers love author’s opinions!
I love paranormal. It‘s just my favorite and luckily for me, my current read is an ARC of Caged by J.A. Belfield!



Are you loving it as much as me?! Wait, did you read my Ethan interview that made us all giggle? Who designed the cover? And do you help with them? 
My publisher designs everything and oh yes, I help. Sometimes, it’s all in the details and really, only an author knows all the details.

Did you learn anything from writing your books and what was it?
I learn how to have fun in my head. LOL

If you could be one of your characters, who would you chose? 
I’d be Charley Randall from my alter-ego’s book Little White Lies.

OH! You have an alter-ego, I will need to look into this! Are there any books you think some of us should read, just because?
Like werewolves? Get J.A. Belfield’s series!

Hold up, did she pay you to promote her? HA You know I love you J! 🙂 And I do totally agree. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? 
Yes … two words … THANK YOU!

My reply to that is NO THANK YOU!!! You’ve given me a whole new series to salivate over, and a new author that is fantastic to stalk!!! 

Giveaway:

ok kids, there’s a fantastic giveaway going on HERE! Seriously, when you see all that’s offered you’ll thank me! 

*My Review-sadly I am sometimes a true blond (really I am) and I totally lose focus… Like the fact that I flipping get ARC’s and then forget to download them before their two week expiration date. LOL SO… since I bought book one, and I am on my way to getting another of book two, I will be having another post soon to help promote and for me to just GUSH about how fantastic this series is! Plus, I may have to offer my own personal giveaway since I need to show some “pay it forward” to J Taylor and Ms Emi!! 

Alrighty guys I wish you all good luck! I really hope you guys will look into this series because it’s AWESOME and Book three will be out in January! 🙂 Happy reading and later gators!!
