Unnatural Souls by Linda Foster
Hey y'all! Today we have Linda Foster on the blog, to promote her book, Unnatural Souls! (clap clap)
Tell us one really cool, behind the scenes fact that happened with your books.
Carrie appeared to be trying to rename Unnatural Souls to Grace and even made a hashtag for it every time she posts about it. #TheStoryWeCallGrace
What is your favorite part of being a writer?
I get to write! What do you mean favorite part?!? People read stuff I wrote!
Linda, where in the world did the idea for this story come from because it is awesome!
A lot of daydreaming is where it came from! I've always loved paranormal and at a time where everyone was writing stories about angels, I decided I wanted one that focused more on demons. This story is a piece of the three-part backstory coming out this year for my book Soul Bound. Unnatural Souls is Grace's backstory, and really how my characters in Soul Bound get to be where they are.
Did you have to do a lot of research? Because I know some of the demon research can be... pleasant.
Ha ha ha. I did some research. Mostly I wanted to make some really bad demons, new ones that are crazy looking, Google images was my inspiration for a lot of it. As an avid paranormal fan I already had most of the ideas in my head for what I wanted my angels and demons to be like. I wanted them to break rules. I wanted not so nice angels and demons who just wanted to be forgiven, but still lash out with their anger problems.
And now, about the book:
Author: Linda Foster
Release Date: August 2nd, 2016
Publisher: Glass House Press
Genre(s): Fantasy, Paranormal
It's been almost a year since the night of the accident that should have killed Grace. Nearly a year since her brother, Ash, sold his soul to save her. She survived, but that wasn’t the end of their story.
Not even close.
In the months since, Grace’s life has turned upside down. She can move objects with her mind, teleport in a blink of an eye, see dead people … and that's just the tip of the crazy train.
And that would be fine, really … if she had any idea how to control it.
Instead, she’s stuck in a body that does things she doesn’t understand. And now, the contract her brother made for her life is drawing to a close. Which means he’s running out of time before the demon comes to collect his soul.
Unless Grace can find a way to save him.
When an angel named Michael shows up with answers and an offer to help her, she jumps at the chance—and agrees to help him with his own mission as the price.
Then she finds out that Michael is working with another demon. That the deal she’s made … is no better than the one from which she’s trying to save Ash. And she’s faced with a choice: turn and walk away, or try to save her brother—by working with the very monsters who have nearly destroyed them both.
About the Author:
Linda Foster was born and raised in Colorado, where she still lives with her (very patient) husband, two (very spoiled) ferrets and (equally spoiled) dog. Linda became an avid reading enthusiast the moment she picked up her first book, and has grown steadily worse. By the time she was fifteen years old, her library had become too big for her shelves, and she was forced to donate all her books to the local school, just to make room for new ones. She started writing short novellas for her friends in middle school, and expanded into full-length novels several years later.
The Realm of the Claimed novellas are her first published work.
