UPRISING Virtual Launch Party

Welcome to the party!

Hi guys! Book two in Jessica Therrien's series Children of the Gods is now available and to celebrate Jessica his hosting a Virtual Launch Party.

Congratulations to Jessica on the release of UPRISING!

Jessica gave participants a few options for our posts today. I decided to chat about my favorite supernatural power.

This will come as no surprise to those of you have read my book or my blog. Hands down, my favorite power is witchcraft. I'd love to have the ability to blink my dishes into the dishwater and command a vacuum to do its job while I kick back and read a book. Think about the things you could do with a potion that made you smarter, stronger, or gave you the ability to teleport yourself to different places. (I'd see the world, and of course I'd want the ability to bring my family and friends with. It's no fun traveling alone.) You'd have an instant green thumb and the best garden around. If it's raining on your day off, no problem. Just conjure up a beautiful, sunny day. And wouldn't it be nice to be able to will that slow car in front of you to move out of the way? With magic coursing through your veins the possibilities would be endless.

So tell me, what's your favorite supernatural power?

And now what you've been waiting for, here's a little information on Jessica's newest book...

Title: Uprising (Children of the Gods #2)
Author: Jessica Therrien
Publisher: ZOVA Books
Release Date: May 28, 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Elyse has done everything she can to protect her friends from The Council's reach. As long as they believe she's dead, she has time to rest and train for war. And war is inevitable.

When Kara arrives with the news that Anna and Chloe have been captured, Elyse is faced with the realization that no one is safe until The Council is stopped and Christoph is destroyed. She doesn't need a prophecy to tell her to lead an army. Christoph has done the one thing that ensures she'll fight to the death. He's threatened the people she loves.

It will take more than the words of an oracle to help them fight against the most powerful Descendant alive. To break The Council's oppression and rise up against a plot so many years in the making, Elyse will need to get dangerously close to her enemy. So close, in fact, she may not survive.
