The Sisters Blog Tour

The Sisters Synopsis:
Gabrielle, the Angel of Karma, isn’t happy about a lot of things that have happened since she came to Earth to learn more about humans. She’s especially not happy that the Book of Barabbadon has fallen into her enemy’s hands, that demons are becoming significantly more powerful, and because of the dark changes in Lucas since the attack on him. And her anger is beginning to show.
Her superior and her brethren—even Lucas—thought she was handling everything pretty well until they learn she wants to go after a human trafficker so she can see him face karma. It’s something she does only when compelled to do so because of a human’s particularly good, or, in this case, heinous acts. But their concerns aren’t from her desire to be more involved with her duties, or even because of the human she wants to see reap what he’s sown with her own eyes. It’s because of whom she wants to use to carry out what she has in mind—a trio of demons called the Sisters. They possess troubling powers, thought to still be strengthening, and were locked away by Gabrielle many years ago. Gabrielle, and those who care for her, know the Sisters are more than a little dangerous even for the Angel of Karma—they also know the Sisters will be looking for vengeance of their own.
Teal Haviland Bio:
Teal Haviland lives in Tennessee with her daughter and her four-legged friends. She enjoys photography, travel, reading, music, cooking, daydreaming, writing (of course), and above all spending time with her family and friends.
Teal grew up with a love for anything fantastical or outrageous. After years of dreaming of worlds where fairies, angels, demons, and shape shifters (to name a few) exist, she finally decided to begin writing her stories down. Inception, book one in her series The Reaping Chronicles, is her first published novel.

Fairytales Can Come True: with a lot of help and hard work!

 My daughter got married last week. It was a joyous occasion with family and friends. I'm still catching up on my sleep, resting my back, and putting away wedding stuff while basking in the happiness of it all, and I wanted to share a few pictures with you.

I was amazed at how many people helped us out with decorating, invitations, food, setting, photography, cleaning up, etc. We couldn't have done it all without them. I was a basket case by the end and couldn't make a decision if my life depended on it, but it was wonderful to see it all come together. So many people said how lovely it was. My daughter wanted a woodland fairytale wedding and said it was all she'd dreamed of, so the hard work paid off in the end!

For the last several months, planning the wedding has taken up most of my spare time, but I've been revising a little in between. Tonight I meet with my critique group to find out how my revisions went on the first hundred pages of my WIP (A modern day Beauty and the Beast tale). Hopefully it's much improved and all my hard work on the revisions and all the help and critiques will pay off as well!
