Blog Tour - Owlet



Owlet Summary
Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.

Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.



Emma Michaels' Bio:
Emma Michaels is the author of the ‘A Sense of Truth’ and ‘Society of Feathers’ series. Her goal with her latest YA novel 'Owlet' is to give others what she did not have growing up; a strong female protagonist with asthma.  While her previous aspiration was to be a lady knight she realized that not being able to run more than a few feet might become a hindrance so turned to writing instead. Her day jobs include being a cover artist, marketing consultant and silk screen designer.

As the founder of The Writers Voice blog (http://OurBooksOurVoice.Blogspot.com) she loves to connect authors and readers. As a book blogger turned author, she was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, until she moved at eighteen to Washington State. Suddenly, the world was a new place filled with tall green trees that reached further for the sky with every moment, making her want to do the same. Ever since, she has tried to make her life something new and different from what it was before, pursuing her future career, setting high goals and reaching for them. With the support of her fiancé, Chihuahua, and her amazing blog followers and fellow bloggers, she wants to prove to the world that anything is possible and help inspire fellow literary lovers to reach for their dreams.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things
*breaks into song* Yes, breaking out randomly into song is definitely one of my favorite things. Okay, maybe not but I am a goof ball so whether it is a favorite thing or not it is still a bound to happen.
Have you ever noticed how writers tend to keep their favorite things close? Not only do these things act as comfort items, but they help us find the inspiration we need to keep writing. Writer’s block? Listening to my favorite song or enjoying a piece of chocolate always helps me.
I keep things that I love near to me. These can include my fiancé, my Chihuahua, my iPad 2, and anything I can write on. But my favorite things are not only limited to objects or people, but also what I like to do. I love to fence, garden, play Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO), create silk screen designs and ultimately, experience as many things as possible.
I also love visiting museums and keeping a very small collection of knickknacks in my favorite wooden carved box. I love feathers, Doctor Who, USB drives and erasers, pins and stickers. I’m random, but I have many favorite things that make me who I am. These are only a few of my favorite things, but it is me. Want to learn more? Read Owlet! There is so much of me in there. My love of birds, my fascination with a wonderful character arc and so much more.

Excerpt:

“Iris, I want you to take a trip. I cannot go with you but I feel you need company. Diana will be going in my place, making sure that you are all right.” Her father started to explain but he stopped when Diana pushed her way past him and into the hallway. Following her out, he closed the door behind them.

“I can’t do it. I can’t go there. Please.” Iris could hear the words coming through the door. “You know. I know that you know.”

“Shh! Stop this right now.” Iris could hear their footsteps leading away from the door, but as she stared at the blood oxygen meter encasing on her middle finger, her father came right back in. Offering a strained smile, she spoke, “She forgot to book the tickets. I sent clothes and medicine ahead but must have forgotten about the flight.” Roger was looking at Iris strangely, waiting for her to say anything in return.

Lies. That was a lie. Don’t let him lie to you.
