NBTM & #GIVEAWAY - Divine Touch by Kristy Denice Bock

GENRE

Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Finding a naked man where Werewolf bones once were should have let Kate know she was in for an unusual day! Nothing could have prepared her for the discovery that her mother is a Goddess, and that nothing in her life would ever be the same. Zane DeSeville spent five centuries trapped in a prison of his own body only to be awakened by the image of the woman who caused his entrapment. After Kate discovers that she’s the daughter of a Goddess, another bombshell is dropped in her lap. She has to pass three Trials of Humanity, or she’ll be imprisoned as Zane had been, and Zane would be her judge and jury!

Excerpt:

Zane found himself liking the strange young man. His appearance was something Zane had never come across before, but that didn't seem to detract from his character, rather it enhanced it.

“Okay look, I'm just going to get this over with,” Cole said. Without a further word on the subject, Cole's head leaned back as his body changed to a form Zane was all too familiar with.

Zane tried to maintain rigid control on the beast within him. The desire to prove alpha status could not be contained. His fingers shook, the need to dominate drove him. The idea of harming the young wolf made him fight hard to control himself.

It was a heedless battle, but the beast would not be contained. The harder he fought, the more the beast raged. He felt the change come upon him before he could control it. His senses heightened, he could smell the other wolf’s presence. With his last coherent ability, he projected his thoughts out, telling the young wolf to run. The beast was free.

The young wolf cocked its head to the side, looking at the larger version. It dropped down on its hindquarters, extending its front paws forward with its head lowered. The beast recognized a sign of submission. The beast stood over the young wolf and growled. It remained unsatisfied with an unearned submission. Its jaws snapped at the young wolf’s ear, causing the smaller creature to jump back in surprise.

The beast goaded the wolf until it openly attacked. Their sounds of aggression filled the room as they wrestled each other to the ground. Though the younger wolf was smaller, it made up for its lack of size by speed and agility. When its teeth sank into the foreleg of the older wolf the battle turned. It went from a token fight to a fierce battle of wills. The younger wolf continued to use its smaller statute to its advantage.

Each time the beast would force the wolf down, it would find a way to escape the hold. With each passing moment a respect was gained. Respect, however, was not something that was worth losing over. The beast howled in delight as his teeth bit into the neck of the wolf, pinning it to the ground.

“When your pissing contest is over, I was promised ice cream, a movie, and Holland.” The beast recognized the scent of its mate. It let go of the wolf and backed away.

A scream caused all heads to turn in the direction of the door Kate had just entered. The beast watched in disgust as the pale creature crumpled to the ground.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Lets see, I’m a 36 year old professional. I have four children, two grandchildren, two dogs, and a mountain of laundry that never seems to end. I’m in a wonderful relationship with a quirky man and my day job isn’t something I will ever leave because I love it as much as I love writing. It’s the best of both worlds really. I started writing when I as a child, and never really stopped. I don’t write for fame or fortune, but because it’s a compulsion to put words down on paper so to speak. I write for the stories that would otherwise make me question my sanity. For a brief moment in time, the story takes hold of my mind and I share it with the world.

What was your favourite book as a child?
I think the list is shorter to ask me which books I didn’t like. The Mouse and the Motorcycle. I loved this book for a very long time. The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. The Indian In The Cupboard. I am pretty sure I read those three books at least a dozen times each before I turned eighteen. They were my first and only line of defense against reality.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
When I’m not writing, I’m a pretty boring person. I go to work, come home, occasionally cook dinner. (I work in the evening, and have older children, so this isn’t as bad as it sounds) I enjoy going swimming at the gym and you can most definitely find me at a coffee house ten minutes after I’ve left the gym drinking every calorie I burned.

Writing

When did you start writing and when did you finish your first book?
I started writing with the intent of finishing a book for publication around 2008. However, as I was writing that book, another book became far more important to me. (I do not love all my literary children equally. Some I abandon for months, even years at a time) The first book was published in 2009 I believe. It’s been a while now, so I’m not sure if I remember the exact date. It was part of an anthology.  

Are you a planner or a pantser?
I’m a pantser who secretly tries so hard to be a planner but can’t seem to color inside the lines enough to follow a plot line or story board.

If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change?
I would have invested real time in learning how to market and probably taken the entire process remotely serious. Everyone goes into writing and publication with different goals. I just wanted to entertain people. I want to make them laugh, and cry. That being said, I’m a parent with teenagers about to go to college soon. If I could, I’d go back and find ways to make writing profitable.

What has been the toughest criticism you’ve been given as an author?
That my female character was too stupid to live, and that I shouldn’t give up my day job. For about eight seconds it hurt my feelings but then I laughed because I just read a book where I thought the same thing.

What has been the best compliment?
It was a review that called the worlds I created magical, and the characters who lived their engaging. It was wonderful.

What sort of writing environment do you create? I.e. music or not? Pen and paper or laptop/PC?
Microsoft One Note to Word. I try to keep things organized and simple.

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
If I’ve ever made you laugh or cry, let me know. Those words are like music to my ears. It means the world to me when my written words have touched another soul. That’s what its all about.
