Entangled Summer Carnival: Fortune Teller Booth!

 

Welcome to the Otherworld Fortune Teller Booth! Otherworld is all about sci-fi, fantasy, and the paranormal, and we are talking about the one question we have always wanted to ask a fortune teller. Nina Croft, Lisa Kessler, Jess Anastasi, and Jody Wallace are here to share their questions, and we would love to hear some of yours. So be sure to leave a comment, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!

I know a lot of people go to see fortune tellers to ask about their love life, but it’s one thing I would never ask about. Of course I’d like to hear that I’m going to find (or have found) Mr. Right and we’re going to live Happily Ever After for ever and ever… but what if that’s not what the fortune teller told you? What if the fortune teller told you that you’ll meet Mr. Right, but then he’ll walk off a bridge while playing Pokemon Go and you’ll spend the rest of your life alone except for a monkey you trained to fetch snacks from the fridge and walk your pet iguana, Frank? I mean, having a trained monkey would actually be kind of cool, but I don’t know the first thing about having a pet iguana!

 

 
First I’d check to see if the fortune teller had monkey paws. I’ve heard things about asking questions or getting wishes granted by monkey paws. Then I’d probably ask for the easiest three ways to stop the apocalypse. If there’s no apocalypse on the way, maybe the fortune teller will have to give me another chance. Kind of like when you order the dark chocolate cocobits milkshake and they’re out of dark chocolate cocobits so you get regular chocolate instead. The tricky thing would be if there’s more than one apocalypse on the way, or if the easiest solution to the apocalypse is, “Get rid of all the humans.” Which is why I’d ask for three ways! No, not a three way, I’m happily married person, three WAYS, in case one of them involves more death and destruction than the apocalypse itself.

Fortune tellers are so tricky!
 
 
I’ve never been to a fortune teller. I suspect carnivals are more of an American thing than British, but I probably would have steered clear of fortune tellers anyway, because I really don’t want to know my future. But maybe one question I would like to know is…will we encounter intelligent aliens in my lifetime? I’d love to meet aliens, find out that there are other sentient beings out there in the universe. And if they’re stunningly gorgeous, straight-out-of-a-sci-fi-romance, totally ripped aliens, all the better. 
 
 
If it hadn’t been for a fortune teller, I might not have ever published a book! I never planned on being a writer until I met a palm reader in New Orleans! I was in town for a trade show for work and while wandering around the French Quarter I decided to get my palm read. After the reading as she walked me to the door she said, “Can I ask you something?”
 
“Sure.”
“Are you a writer?”
 
“No.” I shrugged. “I write, but just for fun.”
 
She smiled and told me, “You’re going to be a famous writer someday.”
I left with my head spinning. While I waited for my plane in New Orleans, I jotted down plot ideas for NIGHT WALKER on cocktail napkins and six months later I had the first draft of NIGHT WALKER written!

Atrophy by Jess Anastasi, on sale for just 99¢!
 

About the Book:

Twelve years on the prison planet Erebus makes a man long for death. The worst part for Tanin Everette is that he was framed for murder. He’s innocent. When the ship Imojenna lands for emergency repairs, Tannin risks everything to escape…only to find himself face to face with the captain’s undeniably gorgeous sister.

Zahli Sherron isn’t planning on turning Tannin in. In fact, she actually believes him. Sure, he’s sexy as every kind of sin, but he’s no criminal—so she hides him. But no one escapes from Erebus and lives to tell about it. With every day that passes, Zahli further risks the lives of the entire crew…even as she falls in love with a man she can never have for herself.

Angeli by Jody Wallace, on sale for just 99¢!
 

About the Book:

He’s no angel…

Gregori’s last mission is to protect Earth from the demons threatening to take control. He doesn’t care if he survives as long as he averts the impending apocalypse—until he meets Adelita, a human refugee, whose spirit and determination give him a renewed reason to fight. And live. He’s falling for her, despite the fact he’s told her nothing but lies and there can’t possibly be a future for them.

Adelita can hardly believe the archangel Gregori, sent to defend mankind, has lost his faith and his edge. After he rescues her from a demon attack, she vows to help him recover both by any means necessary. But can she keep her own faith when she learns the truth about who and what Gregori really is?

The Descartes Legacy by Nina Croft

About the Book:

Her truth is more deadly than his revenge…

Lucas Grafton has spent the last ten years hunting the Conclave, a secret organization that took everything from him: his wife, his child, his very identity. Now he has a lead—an imminent terrorist attack on London, code-named Descartes.

Born with a genetic illness, Jenna Young has always known she was different. But the unexpected death of her father catapults her into a world she never expected. In order to stay alive, she must solve a twenty-five year old mystery. Her only ally is a hard, bitter man in search of retribution, her only clue the Descartes Highlands, an area on the near side of the moon.

Luke’s need for revenge collides with Jenna’s hunt for the past, and together they must stand against the Conclave. They must do this while uncovering the truth behind Jenna’s illness, a truth that will make Jenna question her humanity.

Moonlight by Lisa Kessler
 

About the Book:

Embrace your destiny…

Rancher Adam Sloan is more than meets the eye. As the heir to his Pack, the sexy werewolf’s biggest challenge is keeping his kin’s true nature under wraps. But a group of jaguar shifters threatens to reveal the pack, blasting into town killing humans in plain sight. And when he smells one at the local diner, his standing orders are to take her out.

Lana Turpin doesn’t realize she’s a moving target. Raised in the foster system, she only knows that she blacks out during the new moon and wakes up without remembering a thing. But now she’s being tracked by some strange organization that wants her back–even though she’s never stepped foot inside their compound. And the stranger across the diner is watching her like an enemy.

It should be a simple mission for Adam, but when he touches the frustratingly beautiful Lana, his inner wolf howls…mate. Now, the two must find and stop the people who hunt her…and Adam must keep his own family from killing the only woman he will ever love.
