Today I'm handing the blog over to fellow author LA Dragoni to talk about her Touched by Afterlife series and book two, Guardian's Touch. So, take it away, LA!
In each book of my Touched by Afterlife series, the sense of touch plays a role in guiding the story. Though the physical touch may not always happen often, it will indeed play a role in the story.
In the first book the main character, Tamara, has the ghost touch, the ability to touch ghosts as if they were corporeal. They can siphon her energy during that touch and when they figure that out, they become greedy, putting her life in danger.
In the second book, a supporting character has a guardian’s touch. He is a guardian angel and can only use the touch to protect his charge, and can’t use it too often because it is too powerful for a mortal body to handle.
Touch is as important a sense as sight, hearing, taste, and smell. The touch of a soft blanket can hold comforting childhood memories. The stroke of a feather can make us giggle. A hand resting on our shoulder can be either welcome or unwelcome depending on the circumstances and in either case stirs up a reaction you feel throughout your body. But the most important aspect of touch (at least in relation to my series) is that it connects us to one another. In good ways as well as bad. For protection as well as to harm.
Since this is a celebration of a book release, let’s focus on the good aspects of touch. For an entry into the rafflecopter, include in your comment what your favorite touch sensation is (but please keep it PG-13 – ha ha!), then be sure to claim all the entries you qualify for in the rafflecopter!
Life has returned to normal for Tamara and Dex after helping a horde of ghosts cross over. Their brush with the afterlife affirmed one thing: happily ever after is real.
When odd pranks around the farm escalate to destruction, Tamara fears mischievous teenagers are vandalizing the neighborhood. Then Dex starts to act out of character. Meanness slips into his usually playful disposition. One day he even ridicules a co-worker publicly. Tamara watches helplessly as he seems to lose the ability to control his own actions. When Dex’s abnormal anger turns violent—toward Tamara—their happily ever after is threatened. Desperate to help Dex and herself, she sends out a silent prayer for help.
She didn’t expect Cal to come to her aid.
Available on Amazon for Kindle and in print.
