Met Seth Alton yet?

Today we have the chance to interview Seth Alton, leader of the physical training group in Castle Hayne, Hill Burrough #1. Thank you, Seth, for taking a moment out of your valuable time to interview with us today.

CECE- Since you just turned eighteen, you were able to join a new class of citizens in Castle Hayne. How do you feel about your family, now that you’re an adult?

Seth: **chuckles before answering**
Family? What does that mean? Mine are all either missing, dead,  or some combination of both. The Thoughtmaster’s are my family now.

CECE- Thoughtmasters? What are they?

Seth:  **smirks** Who doesn’t know what a Thoughtmaster is? They’re the best of the five classes of gifted people that live in Castle Hayne. Masters of the meditative arts. Disciplinarians. We run a camp for bad kids. It’s called Minders Camp. My job is to make sure trainees can handle themselves once they step outside the Great Wall. You never know what ugly thing might get you out there. I also use techniques to…well, just say, I help them get their attitudes right so they can return home. Should I set a slot up for you? I could train you personally, if you like.

CECE:  Er, no. I’m good. But thanks anyway. So, if you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?

Seth: **crosses his legs, raises his left eyebrow, and stares at me a long moment** I don’t really want to answer that question right now. Next one, please.

CECE: Okay. How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period?

Seth: I don’t fall in love. Love is a minefield of magnetic bombs waiting for you to swallow the iron pill. It pulls you in, and then boom! You’re dead. **uncrosses his legs and stares at me**

CECE:    That's kind of sad you feel that way. How do you decide if you can trust someone? First impressions? Intuition? Do you test the person somehow? Or are you just generally disposed to trust or not to trust?

Seth: I wonder if I didn’t make myself clear in the previous question. But I’ll humor you this one time. I trusted once, loved once. What did I get in the end? Betrayal. Heartache. Next question, please.

CECE:  What really moves you, or touches you to the soul? And that’s not the same thing as the love question, by the way.
Seth: **chuckles and grins with his black-blue eyes** A double-edge sword kind of question. You get me to answer this one, and then you think you can figure out how I’d answer the little wishes question, right? One word, one thing touches my soul. It’s all that matters…power. I intend to have it. And I’ll get it anyway I have to.

CECE: When you walk into a room, what do you notice first? Second?
Seth: Well I’d notice you if you were sitting in there. You have such lovely brown eyes. I could swim in them until the silver moon rises on high next year.

CECE:  Okay. Thanks, I think. On the other hand, when you walk into a room, what do you expect people to notice about you?
Seth: Well I don’t know, lovely. If walked into a room which one of my assets would you pay attention to first? **gives me a dimpled grin as I turn red**  Are we almost done with these…incredibly fun questions? I have to get back to the Camp. New trainees are arriving shortly.

CECE: Of course. Just a couple more. What do you consider your special talent?
Seth:  I make things happen that you wouldn’t believe. Even if you’d just seen it with your eyes all the way open.

CECE:  What's the worst thing you've ever done? Why?
Seth:  Are you really prepared to hear me answer that question? Take my advice and skip it.

CECE:  What are you most afraid of?
Seth: Easy enough. Nothing.

CECE: Surely you’d be afraid to lose someone you love. Your ideal mate, for example. Describe her to me.
Seth: **eyes cloud over and look through me a long moment** She is strong. Not just in body, but in spirit. She can stand me down. That’s not a easy thing to do, in case you haven’t heard. She can pull someone under her spell, or she can destroy them with a glance. And I don’t mean by using magic. I mean just because she is the one. **eyes refocus on me. I’m surprised he answered this one**

CECE:  Describe yourself to me.
Seth:  I am the alpha and the omega, the original and the doomed. The first of my kind and perhaps the last. Thank you for interviewing me.

CECE: *blinks several times, then recovers* Oh, the pleasure is all mine Seth.

Until Next Time: The Angel Chronicles, Book 1 Summary

How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?

Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.

When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.

From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.

Amy Lignor's Bio:

Amy Lignor began her career at Grey House Publishing in northwest Connecticut where she was the Editor-in-Chief of numerous educational and business directories.

Now she is a published author of several works of fiction. The Billy the Kid historical The Heart of a Legend; the thriller, Mind Made; and the adventure novel, Tallent & Lowery 13.

She is also the owner of The Write Companion, a company that offers help and support to writers through a full range of editorial services from proofreading and copyediting to ghostwriting and research. As the daughter of a research librarian, she is also an active book reviewer.

Currently, she lives with her daughter, mother and a rambunctious German Shepherd named Reuben, in the beautiful state of New Mexico.

My Review:
Until Next Time is about angels. Amy Lignor created angels (characters) who are both fun and quirky.

Emily and Matt are angels, soulmates. They are sent to earth to gather knowledge/information,to better understand humans. They are assigned to two human 'shells'namely, Liz and Daniel. And in order to inhabit those bodies, they don't retain any memories of being in Heaven. Liz has had a hard life. One stormy night Liz and her friend Faith meet Charles and Jason, who later play a big part in both lives. Emily and Matt exeprience and see so much as humans, and partner until the end.

I enjoyed Until Next Time's unique storyline. The story is about choices, friendship, love, acceptance, forgiveness and quite an emotional story at that. I look forward to the second book in the series.

B is for Bad Boys (in books we love)

This boy doesn't play by other people's rules. Infact he will go as far as show he doesn't give a hoot about those rules. As far as he is concerned, rules are there to be broken. This boy/man's badness was shaped earlier on a child. He usually doesn't allow anyone close to his heart, and neither does he allow himself that kind of luxury.

In novels, there is always that bad boy who perfects those two words. He hides his inner goodness by being very sarcastic and probably throwing a temper, or just letting things roll off his shoulder, even though deep inside it hurts like he  sent the seventh circle of hell. He loves a good fight.

My bad boy book/tv boyfriends: Aa, there is Damon. Vampire diaries wouldn't be what it is without him. Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. Damon from Obsidian. Seth Alton from KaSonndra Leigh's When Copper Suns Fall (Check out my interview Met Seth Alton yet, you'll understand. Better yet, read Copper Suns Oh yeah, and the latest one. He is so bad that it's caused lots of controversy. But once you get to know what happened during his childhood, take pity on him. Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey. 
Then their is Will from Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel.

What are your 'love them, hate them' bad boys in books/TV?
