A featured book and a guest interview

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am excited to feature one of two versions of the same book. I was going to do a double feature this week, but I didn’t want to make my post overly long and I figured that you’d get more enjoyment out of seeing each author featured. Therefore, this week I have a special treat for you.

This week’s  featured book is entitled Toxic – Adult Edition, written by Karina Kantas. I had the pleasure of interviewing Karina on my podcast.

Listen to the most recent episode of my podcast: Interview with Karina Kantas https://anchor.fm/inspirational-journeys/episodes/Interview-with-Karina-Kantas-e3pjc7

 

You can also watch the interview on YouTube at the following link:

 

Toxic cover KK.jpg

Description:   Lexi isn’t your normal Malok. She craves adventure and freedom from the mundane life forced upon her. 100 years ago, the first drop of acid rain fell. Maloks fled to the mountains, building a new way of life—a desolate life—a life Lexi knows all too well.

Lexi has a plan, her ticket out of this miserable existence, becoming a ranger. Aron, her partner, believes she’s not strong enough to fight alongside him. Lexi will stop at nothing, no matter what the danger, to achieve her independence, even if that means defying him.

Amidst everything, Marcus, Lexi’s childhood best friend makes a sudden return. Before she can rejoice in a reunion, her happiness is crushed when she sees Mae, the bully that had terrorized her in her teens. Marcus was aware of the mental abuse Lexi had suffered and yet the person she loved and the person she hated the most, stand before her, together.

“A powerful dystopian thriller that captures the heart and imagination”.

Excerpt:

“Lexi,” greeted the young medic.

“Hey, Sha.” Lexi smiled.

She walked past Sha and sat down on a stool, took a sterile cloth, and wiped away the dead skin, causing her to take an intake of breath. No matter how many times she had been burnt there was no way to get used to that kind of pain.

As she reached for a jar of Dozax paste, Sha spoke. “You’ve been outside again, haven’t you?”

Lexi didn’t answer at first, as she felt the wonderful relief as the paste went to work, taking away the pain and healing the burn. The skin immediately started to regenerate and within moments all that was left on her hand was a green coloured dye, which would eventually fade. Still, Lexi needed to wear a patch that had a tiny spot of Dozax cream to complete the treatment. It was dangerous for any Malok to use Dozax in its pure form. Everything had to be diluted.

“You are such a strange Malok,” Sha said, shaking her head.

Lexi smiled. “I can’t help it. I’d go crazy if I was cooped up here forever.”

“Has your ranger training started?” Sha asked.

Lexi’s grin was wide. “Not yet. At the end of the week,” she answered, still not believing she had been accepted into the academy. “Okay, I’m done,” she said and then jumped off the stool. “See you tomorrow.”

“Oh wait. You have four inoculations to do tomorrow.”

“Four?” Lexi questioned.

“Yes, some Maloks arrived last night with the new commander.”

“Oh, yes I forgot about Jow. So sad. He was nice as a commander, and so approachable and happy all the time, you know?”

“Yeah,” Sha agreed and then giggled. “Remember when he came and said he wanted to learn basic aid? Oh my, he was so funny.”

Lexi laughed as she remembered that day and how he always made her smile. “See even now, just thinking of the late commander makes us happy. He left a great legacy behind.”

“He sure did. Let’s just hope the new one can live up to that.”

“Okay, I’m off. See you tomorrow, Sha.”

“I will have the Dozax jabs ready for you in the incubator,” Sha called.

“Super! Thanks,” Lexi mumbled.

Lexi still couldn’t get that sad day out of her mind. She even had to visit the Charmer to talk and get closure. The loss of Commander Jow was hard for everyone. A party of fifteen went out that day and only two returned. Lexi wished for peace every day, but the only way that would happen was if the Outcasts and the Maloks agreed to share.

She shook her head. Of course, that would never happen, she was kidding herself. Outcasts needed the Terra leaves to feed their addiction. Never mind that this amazing plant could cure pain, protect the body from germs, Illness and normal medical problems that come from age and a weary body. She couldn’t imagine how life used to be when young people would die, because they didn’t know the secret of the plant and the properties it possessed. So, sad, she thought, as she quickly made her way back to the residence she shared with Aron.

Everyone assumed that Lexi and Aron would marry and settle down. Her friends certainly thought so, and at the start, so did Lexi. Only now she had woken up, and the adventurous Lexi wanted so much more from life and becoming a ranger was a step in the right direction.

A poem and a challenge #writephoto

The  poem below was inspired by the post found at the following link

Thursday photo prompt: Beyond #writephoto

 

I stand in the shadow of the trees,

As through a colorful rainbow

The sunshine beckons to me.

 

Two trees make a triangle,

through which I cannot see,

Unless I stare into the gap

at a lawn so brilliant and free.

 

Should I stand in the shadows alone?

Or find my way around

the trees pressed together

into the morning sun?

 

Time seems to stand still

While pushing through the wall

I step out on the grass

the sunlight kissing my cheek

as beams of light fall

all around me.

 

I find I’m no longer alone

as bird song welcomes me.

Darkness turns to dawn

and in the light, I see

the rainbow fading away

its colors dancing through the trees.

 

The day shines beautiful and bright

with a flag flying high in the breeze

As God reaches out His hand,

Through the darkness to rescue me.

 

Out in the open I now stand

my spirit flying free

to follow God’s divine plan

and complete each creative task

which has been chosen for me.

tips and Encouragement for Aspiring Podcasters

Here is one of two episodes I posted on my podcast called Inspirational Journeys today. After I posted this episode, I listened to Jen’s episode about the writing struggles she faces.

I have to admit, that my struggle today was updating my podcast so it could go live. However, after doing a google search and finding the help file I needed with a link to the podcast settings, I was able to make the necessary changes and resubmit it for distribution on all nine platforms.

 

After listening to this episode, I challenge you to go out there and try something new. No matter whether you’re building your podcast, starting a YouTube hannel or writing in a new genre, I believe that with God on your side, you can do anything. for Philipians $:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who Strengtheneth me.”
