"When I'm not writing" with Auralee Wallace + giveaway

Auralee WallaceToday we're welcoming debut author Auralee Wallace to the blog. Her book, SIDEKICK, has just come out from Escape Publishing (a Harlequin imprint) and Auralee is on a blog tour to celebrate this fantastic release. She's here today to tell us what she does when she's not working on a book, and she's providing a tour-wide giveaway to boot. Welcome, Auralee!

I am a soccer goddess. Not a soccer mom. A soccer goddess. Seriously, I dominate the playing field.

Granted that’s a 7, 5 and 2 year old I’m playing against, but, don’t let their size fool you. The oldest goes by the nickname Crazy Legs, the littlest one has been known to bite, and the middle, well, let’s just say she’ll do whatever it takes to win.

I am a brilliant armchair psychologist. An undergraduate degree in psychology will do that to you. I’m diagnosing people with stuff all the time. By far, though, I’ve diagnosed myself with the most afflictions. I am constantly amazed that I’m allowed to walk the streets unsupervised.

I am an overworked laundress. I have three children. It’s never done. To make matters worse, my middle child treats life like an episode of Downton Abbey and dresses for every activity of the day.

I am a sparkling conversationalist, especially on topics such as  the golden age of soap operas. Let’s talk Santa Barbara, Cruz and Eden, and that time she escaped that crazed Vietnam vet in the woods to drag herself back to Cruz on her damaged legs only to be snatched away at gunpoint the very moment Cruz sees her and realizes, My wife is alive! Ooh, I still get tingles.

I’m daydreaming about what life would be like as Doctor Who’s companion. I’m a little fangirl about the Doctor, so I don’t think I’ll expand on this on. I don’t want to embarrass myself.

Well, that’s me in a nutshell. Thank you for the opportunity to share my understated glory!


Thanks so much for visiting us, Auralee! I'm right there with you about Doctor Who. :)

Here's the scoop on SIDEKICK:

Sidekick by Auralee WallaceHeroes meets Kick-Ass in this brilliant and hilarious debut about a girl who just wants to save the world...

Bremy St James, daughter of billionaire Atticus St James, has been cut off from the family fortune and is struggling to survive in a world that no longer holds its breath every time she buys a new outfit. To make matters worse, her twin sister is keeping secrets, loan sharks are circling, and the man of her dreams — a newspaper reporter — is on assignment to bring down everyone with the last name St James.

Things are certainly looking bleak for the down-and-out socialite until a good deed throws her into the path of the city’s top crime-fighter, Dark Ryder. Suddenly, Bremy has a new goal: apprentice to a superhero, and start her own crime-fighting career.

Ryder has no need for a sidekick, but it turns out the city needs Bremy’s help. Atticus St James is planning the crime of the century, and Bremy may be the only one able to get close enough to her father to stop him.

Now all she needs to do is figure out this superhero thing in less than a month, keep her identity secret from the man who could very well be The One, and save the city from total annihilation.

Well, no one ever said being a superhero would be easy...

  1. Thank you for the feature Tynga's Reviews! I had fun. Auralee

  2. Right? It was the trifecta of soaps on NBC: You could tune in to see Bo and Hope (who was in a cage as the prisoner of... was it Victor, who is now a hero on the show? Or Jack raping Kayla? And Jack went on to be a hero on the show as well.) Then you could be taken away to Another World for the Antics of Vicky before sliding into Santa Barbara. Why they didn't just bring back this one instead of that crazy failed "Passions"?

  3. All wonderful stuff! And I think it was Ernesto..then Hope fell into that vat of acid? And Vicky and Marley! Before Anne Heche went completely off the rails! That was good stuff. But yes, Santa Barbara was my first love...oh, Robyn Wright...I must go to Youtube immediately and watch clips!

  4. I'm excited to read this! It's been on my radar since I stumbled across it on Goodreads a while ago.

  5. Sounds like an fun ride. I hope this is a series, we need a female superhero in out world. She can save the day over and over. Yep sounds like a fun ride.

  6. Thanks for commenting everyone. Yes, I'm working hard on a sequel at the moment. Hopefully, it won't take long to get it out after that!
