Broken Soul tour: Guest post by Faith Hunter + giveaway


Today we have a guest post from Faith Hunter, author of two amazing series: the Jane Yellowrock urban fantasy series and near-future apocalyptic Rogue Mage series. Faith is here today to promote her latest Jane Yellowrock book, BROKEN SOUL, and she's written us a great guest post about her life as a kayaker.



Faith and waterlilies 2- 2014

Kayakers are laid back adrenaline junkies. Yes, as a writer, I do recognize the apparent disconnect between being laid back and being an adrenaline junky, but kayakers (we often call each other paddlers, but only face-to-face, not in print, because when you do an Internet search for paddlers something very different from rivers comes up. Just a word of warning…) manage to be both.

There is nothing more soothing than being in a kayak on a slow-moving river, lost in nature among the flora and fauna, seeing seasonal flowers, deer, raccoons, great gray herons, snowy egrets, osprey, kingfishers, bald eagles, turkey, the rare wild boar leaping across river rocks, water fowl in dozens of varieties, muskrats playing in the water, and the occasional sighting of a beaver. Laid back floats with sporadic wave-train or class II runs are so much fun and so relaxing.


Then there are the class III and IV rapid runs, where the action is a bit wilder and the adrenaline starts to flow, often on the same river, sometimes only a few hundred yards apart. Where the river narrows and the terrain changes, dropping elevation, forcing the water to move faster, and to dodge around, over, and under rocks. Where the spray gets higher, whiter, colder, and the air starts to smell of ozone and freshness and all things wild and dangerous. Then the kayaker changes from this laid back, relaxed, feet-in-the-water paddler, into a strapped in, sharp, focused, heart-pounding, adrenaline junky. And yeah—that’s me. I’m a bit of both when I’m not writing. When I’m on a river.

I’ve used rivers and kayaking in thrillers under the name pen Gwen Hunter. I also wrote kayaking and rafting into the Jane Yellowrock book RAVEN CURSED. So I guess you can say that paddling is a big part of my life, and it’s a sport that I can participate in for many years, without the worry that aging will force me away. I’ve met paddlers in their 80s who are still taking rivers, having fun, and getting back the laid back, adrenaline-filled joy of nature.

Here's the scoop on BROKEN SOUL:

Broken Soul by Faith HunterJane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….

  1. Thanks so much for publishing a side of Faith Hunter that many of her fans may not know about! It helps her fans to see that she is more than her writing in so many ways, and that those activities generate some of the storylines.

    Yay for giveaway

  3. We have lots of paddlers here, too -- the G-rated kind. Lots of canals and waterways, and, of course, Florida's Gulf Coast. I'm hoping Faith sends Jane Yellowrock to the Sunshine State for an adventure soon!

  4. Thanks for the spotlight on Faith and her writing. I love both of her series!

  5. This series is one of the best out there! so good! Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. Awesome! I went white water rafting once on the Rio Grande in New Mexico with some idiot friends who claimed they knew what they were doing. Luckily, we all survived and I have a good story to tell. :-)

    A different friend, who lives in Atlanta, asked me if I knew where Faith went kayaking, as she does this sort of thing, too. So, that's my question; where are some of your favorite rivers?

  7. I love Jane and Beast - especially when they disagree on things.

  8. Love This Series

  9. Faith is a great author. Her characters are very fully imagined and interesting. Sometimes fun sometimes terrifying.

  10. I think Jane and Leo belong together. Bruiser only if she has no other choice.

  11. Congratulations on the up coming release of Broken Soul! I cannot wait to read it. I so love this series!!

  12. You learn something new every day. I didn't know Faith wrote under another name. Will have to look up her books under Hunter.
