One of my favorite time of the year is April/May, not just because it’s spring time, but also because it’s time for RT Booklovers Convention and this year our stop is HOTLANTA (Atlanta, Georgia)!
I am blessed and thrilled to be taking part in MANY amazing parties and events and I can’t wait to hang with fellow authors, readers and book lovers like me 🤗!
I have made up some very special swag for this year including a set of 6 stickers representing Legendary and some coming works =^_^= Also at each panel and party I will be giving away gift bags, complete sets of Legendary, swag bags and bags of books, and quite possibly a very special treat from the other world I live in: the world of PASTRY ;P
Like I said I’ve got a LOT happening in 7 days so here’s a list of where you can find me and when!
Normally my RT Convention is done after the AMAZING Teen Day Party Saturday night, but this year I will be doing an extra special signing!! RT has extended the festivities into Sunday and are featuring another signing with over 100 authors and I can tell you this will be one of the few places you’ll be able to get your copy of A King Will Rise!

For this hunt I am hosting LISA VOISON and her fantasy book THE WARRIOR PROPHET
How far would you go to save the one you love?
Mia Crawford is a prophet.
She can see angels. She also sees demons. Everywhere.
The angels are preparing for war to get her fallen angel boyfriend, Michael, back.
A war that could take years.
Haunted by visions of Michael’s soul being tortured, Mia can’t rest until she knows he’s safe.
To save him, she must make an impossible journey through Hell with the one person she prayed she’d never see again.
SPECIAL CONTENT: Deleted prologue from The Warrior Prophet
This is an old character sketch I did of Damiel, the villain from The Watcher. Since he returns in The Warrior Prophet, I wrote this to help me find his voice. I was considering using it as a prologue, but it was never fleshed out into a real scene. It’s pretty rough, but that’s what deleted scenes are all about.
I hope you enjoy it. I had a lot of fun writing him!
There’s a special place in Heaven for the fallen Watchers. A secured quarantine they keep stark and constantly lit. No room for shadows in Heaven. Not even my own. Whoever designed this place must have figured we’d had enough of the dark. Perhaps they didn’t trust what one of us would do with only shadows for company.
Nobody comes to see me. There’s nothing left but me and my shattered conscience.
You’d think being near Heaven would be welcoming, but it’s so much colder than I remember. Cold enough to make me miss the fires of Hell, or at least a body to possess. Heaven’s warmth comes from the constant presence of the Divine. But that brings me no comfort. Not when I haven’t been able to feel it for millennia. Hell burned it right out of me, an anti-purification, or corruption, on a different scale.
Speaking of Hell, someone once said it was so beautiful it would torment an angel to insanity. That’s the part of Hell I know. The breeding ground of sin.
And where did this infection of sin come from, you ask?
You know that in the beginning was darkness. But when God said ‘let there be light’ where do you think the darkness went?
It hid, waiting in every shadow, craving its revenge. And despite all of God’s mighty warriors, it cannot be vanquished. Not one of us, no human nor angel, is completely free of its grasp.
Lisa Voisin is an author of young adult and fantasy fiction, and a graduate of SFU’s The Writer’s Studio. In her spare time, Lisa leads a writing group for teens and teaches meditation in her hometown of North Vancouver, B.C.
Sounds like an interesting series! Take the time to check it out after you enter the extra giveaway I’m running! To be eligible for the grand prize on #TeamGold you need to remember the number 32 before you jump to AMY CHRISTINE PARKER‘s page to continue the hunt!
Happy sleuthing 🙂
