CHAT with Author LA BANKS Tonight on Twitter with YAlitchat!!

If you didn't know already, YAlitchat hosts a weekly Twitter chat, discussing all realms of writing and the publishing world. It's a great way to meet other writers and learn a ton.

LM Preston ~ a fabulous author, fellow YAlitchatter, and friend ~ is moderating the chat tonight at 9PM with none other than the fabulous LA BANKS, New York Times & USA Today's Best-Selling Author of SHADOW WALKER, under the Twitter hashtag #yalitchat.

Description as seen on Sarah Rivera has a lot going on in her life right now. It’s bad enough that she’s being shipped off to Temt Tchaas Academy—also known as Neteru Academy, a high school for future Guardians of the Light who have special powers—but she has to go there with her cocky twin brother and the rest of her compound brothers and sisters. To make matters worse, everyone has ridiculous expectations of her all because her parents are like supernatural rock stars for saving the planet sixteen years ago. But what nobody, not even her best girlfriend Tami seems to be getting is the fact that, she’s not special, doesn’t want to be a demon-hunting hero, and is even afraid of the dark!

So what that her mother was a warrior angel and her Dad used to be a Council level Vampire? Opposites attract. Go figure. As far as Sarah is concerned, all she got from the combination was a pair of fangs that lengthen at inappropriate times to embarrass her in front of her secret crush; whereas her brother, Alejandro, got the good looks and cool wings. However, what her parents’ status has created is drama in her life, by ensuring that the mean girls at school will make her life a living nightmare. Sarah knows her family’s renowned slayer reputation will also ensure that everyone at school will assume she had it easy and should be able to do everything her famous rebel parents can do, when she can’t. Not by a long shot. 

Once at the hidden boarding school, things go from bad to worse as Sarah tries to fit in. Her nightmares increase and it isn’t just anxiety—her second sight is suddenly developing at a record pace. Layers of secrets are held by the building, held by her parents, and nothing is as it seems. There is something really bad going on at the school, worse than bad—deadly. Only, faculty and administrators don’t know where to begin to look for the cause as students start to disappear. Sarah must then make a choice to stand on the sidelines or to help use her gifts to save someone dear. But to do that means facing all of her greatest fears, along with a demon or two.

Like Vampires, the paranormal, and all that encompass them??? Then by all means join us tonight for a fabulous opportunity to mingle with a talented lady. 

(hmm...maybe some of her charm will rub off on think?)

Still undecided?? Visit her WEBSITE and see.

What do you think about live chats??

(Quick Note: I woke up last night with the flu. It took everything I had just to write this so I'm sure I won't be blogging today. I apologize. I'll see you all on Friday and visit your posts then. Hope all is well with you!)


  1. This sounds like the kind of book I'd want to read. And what an eerie cover. I'm putting this on my wishlist. Thank for the info!

  2. This sounds good. I added it to my list. Thanks.

  3. I have a hard time following the YALITCHAT discussions. I gave up on it a long time ago, but maybe I should try again.

    Love your new cover mock up for Marked Beauty, Sheri.

  4. Live chats rock! But YAlitchat always scares me. It's gets so confusing once everyone starts talking.

  5. I'll do my best to stop in tonight! I love live chats, especially on Twitter. I've met so many great people that way, writers, authors, agents, editors. It's why @TeeTate and I came up with the Thursday #WritersRoad chat!

  6. Oh no!!! I hope you feel better soon Sheri!

    I like live chats, they're all good. =)

  7. Feel better, Sheri! I have found that however much I want to participate, my family kinda gets in the way! :-)


!SPLAT Your Awesomeness! I love to hear from you!
