Beyond the Blue Mountains @celiayeary @KMNbooks @rebeccajvickery

Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery released a new historical tale from the talented, Celia Yeary. BEYOND THE BLUE MOUNTAINS, is available at Amazon and Smashwords in various eBook formats. Soon to be in print, too.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Guymon Reynolds arrives home to Grove's Point, Texas, in February 1919, the end of WWI. Knowing he's lost his parents and two young brothers to the Spanish flu, he's anxious to see his grandpa at the family farm. But nothing is right upon his arrival. He faces more death and destruction that resembles the battlefields where he fought in France.

Young widow Teresa Logan lives near the depot. She, too, grieves for her husband who died from the flu. Alone on a farm with two baby girls, she struggles with loneliness, back-breaking work, and sometimes, fear. But Teresa is strong and determines to care for her family and her farm alone.

Guy and Teresa meet and they easily bond, sharing grief and sorrow.

Both dream of a better life in Grove's Point, or perhaps a new beginning beyond the Blue Mountains.

If we were the Masters of Time... #MoTTour @The_GrayTower @MasqTours

-->

Karen: We have Alesha Escobar today to tell us about her fantastic new tale! Good morning, Alesha. Let’s start with you telling the readers a little about yourself.

Alesha: Thanks so much for inviting me to your blog today, Karen! I’m a shameless chocoholic, a lover of caffeine, great books, and wicked humor. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and still live here with my children and husband, Luis, who’s the other half of my creative mind.

Karen: Logan 6 is your new release. Tell us a little about the story. What inspired you to write this tale?

Alesha: When I settled on writing a time travel story for the Masters of Time anthology, I knew I wanted to work on a sci-fi story (I had just completed my Gray Tower Trilogy fantasy series). The idea of a clone engaging in time travel kept nagging at me, and I knew it wouldn’t leave me alone until I gave it all the attention it wanted. It turned into “Logan 6,” and I couldn’t be more happier with the story.

Karen: Logan is the hero of the story. What is he like? What is his first impression when he meets Anika , the heroine of the story?

Alesha: Logan is a genetically enhanced clone. He was made to be obedient, and to be a weapon. However, once he meets this beautiful, graceful woman Anika (who knows how to throw a mean punch, by the way), he realizes that there’s more to life than just taking orders. There are things like beauty, love, and finding your own destiny. Logan begins questioning things, especially his makers--and that’s when things get dangerous.

Karen: Tell us about this first meeting. What does she think of the hero?

Alesha: At first Anika is afraid, but she also feels sorry for him, because Logan is “Logan 6” for a reason. What happened to the other five who came before him? Being a clone in the future doesn’t afford you the same rights as a natural born human in this world.

Karen: What are your current projects and works in progress?

Alesha: I’m currently working on an urban fantasy, but if you’ve enjoyed Logan 6, please feel free to check out my Gray Tower Trilogy (it’s Agent Carter with a supernatural twist), and my other short story, The Black Dagger Gods.

Karen: Tell the readers where they can find you: 

Alesha: You can find me on Facebook / TwitterMy blog

Karen: Is there anything else you’d like to tell the readers?

Alesha: Thank you readers for supporting me thus far and riding this crazy rollercoaster with me. If you’re new, please don’t hesitate to check out my work.

Karen: Are you going to run a contest? If so what will you be giving away as the prize?
  
Alesha: Now that you mention it, we are having a massive giveaway to celebrate the release of Masters of Time. We’ve got signed paperpacks, free ebooks, audiobook coupons, Amazon gift cards, tote bags, journals--you name it!
