Today's show features the recording of a Sept. 12, 2010 teleconference call in which Dr. Elam wore her publisher's hat and chatted with Lauri J Owen, author of the new paranormal romance Fallen Embers (Book One of The Embers Series)Lynne Murray, author of the romantic comedy Bride of the Living Dead as well as the award-winning Josephine Fuller mystery novels, and Lesleigh Owen, co-author of Fat Poets Speak: Voices of the Fat Poets' Society, also participated in the conversation.

Fallen Embers features a big beautiful heroine as well as a big handsome hero. It's set in an alternate version of Alaska in which a ruling class of decadent mages have enslaved the shapechanging indigenous peoples. The heroine, Kiera, is transported to this world when she and her nephew are attacked by a strange dog outside their home in "our" Alaska. Kiera soon finds herself fighting to save three children from an army -- and to her amazement, does so by summoning fire.

Before Kiera can find her way home she must learn more about the local systems of magic and her own powers. On whose side should she fight? Whom can she trust -- Marco, the young mage she saves, or fierce and handsome Laszlo, the slave captain of ruling Lord Vayu's army?

Kiera's path leads her deeper into Alaska, to joy and to heartbreak. Choosing to follow her heart may cost her everything.

Fallen Embers is available in original trade paperback and ebook editions from Pearlsong Press and your favorite booksellers. Check out the author's website and learn more about the book's system of astrology-based magic and what powers you might manifest if transported to The Embers Series world!
