Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy Blog Tour- Day One: Simon Goodson and Rebekah Ford
Posted by Maegan Provan
We are kicking off the start of the first official Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy Blog Tour with a couple of amazing reads. One out of the Science Fiction category (Wanderer’s Escape) and the other out of the Paranormal Fantasy category (Beyond the Eyes). I cannot think of a better starting point than this. I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that comes across this blog and takes a moment to support these authors. We know that we are not going to end piracy, but we are hoping to get people to think twice before downloading a book illegally.
Blurb: Jess was born a prisoner, grew up a prisoner and at sixteen knew he would die a prisoner. When his turn comes to try to break through the traps protecting a spaceship it seems his day to die has come. The ship, and others like it, have already claimed hundreds of prisoners’ lives.
Instead he manages to avoid the traps and gain access to the ship with two other prisoners, beginning a frantic flight to freedom. Soon Jess finds himself loose in a brutal universe ruled by the Empire and riddled with pirates, slave traders and worse. Can Jess manage to learn the rules of the universe and the capabilities of the ship he has stolen in time to stay alive?
Simon Goodson is the author of the highly rated ‘Wanderer’s Escape’ science fiction novel, the first of three books (so far) in the Wanderer’s Odyssey series. He is also the author of the two exciting ‘Dark Soul Silenced’ fantasy books.
His short stories cover a variety of speculative fiction including, but not limited to, science fiction and fantasy. Several of the short stories are freely available from www.simongoodson.com, while many more are available in the collection ‘Last Sunrise & Other Stores’.
Simon fits in writing around a full time job as an IT Consultant and a hectic family life looking after his son and two daughters. He can most often be found writing at lunchtimes and during the commute home.
In the small town of Astoria, Oregon, surrounded by deep forest and endless mountains, another world thrives . . . a menacing one where dark spirits dwell in soulless humans. Seventeen-year-old Paige Reed lives in this lush, picturesque setting. She’s not your average teen, though she appears to be. Not only is she heartsick, but she’s been receiving cryptic premonitions from a ghostly voice since the age of four. After she hears a haunting message about herself, supernatural occurrences begin to confuse her.
Nathan Caswell seems to peer into Paige’s soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them they cannot deny. They’re connected. But he’s no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige.
When two power-hungry malevolent beings make demands on her, she realizes then the fate of mankind rest in her hands. Her world quickly turns inside out where the impossible becomes possible, and in the end she’s faced with a life changing decision that will not only alter her existence but the world as she knows it.
Can a deeply troubled teen overcome her own demons in order to fight those lurking about? With the past and present colliding, Paige must make the ultimate mortal choice. Will it be the right one?
Rebekkah Ford grew up in a family that dealt with the paranormal world. Her parents Charlie and Geri Wilhelm were the directors of the UFO Investigator’s League in Fairfield, Ohio. They also investigated ghost hauntings and Bigfoot sightings in addition to extraterrestrial cases. Growing up in this type of environment and having the passion for writing stories is what drove Rebekkah at an early age to write tales dealing with the paranormal world. Her fascination with the unknown is what led her to write the Beyond the Eyes trilogy and Tangled Roots.
Rebekkah resides in rural North Dakota, in a farming community of about 1,800, and loves where she lives. She has an irreverent sense of humor, adores coffee, and yummy food makes her happy. She loves books, history, antiques, animals, connecting with her fans and other authors, and watching her favorite TV shows.
