Title: Superhero Syndrome

Author: Caryn Larrinaga

Genre: Paranormal Romance

About Superhero Syndrome:

Tess McBray was dying. The Solstice Syndrome had no cure, and she resigned herself to an early grave. But just when she gave up on survival, all her symptoms mysteriously disappeared.

All but one symptom, anyway. Something is wrong with Tess’s hands. They absorb any material they touch, and her skin turns to wood, or steel, or concrete. It doesn’t take this comic-book obsessed 21-year-old long to figure out what’s going on: somehow, she’s developed super powers. And she’s not the only one; across the country, people are coming forward and sharing their gifts with the world. In her own city, where the police are battling a human trafficking operation, a masked vigilante called The Fox is saving lives and stopping criminals.

Tess doesn’t know where she fits into this new, super-powered world. But when people around her start disappearing, she can’t just sit on the sidelines. Teaming up with The Fox might be the only way to rid her city of evil and save the people she loves most.

About Caryn Larrinaga:

Caryn Larrinaga is a Basque-American mystery, horror, and urban fantasy writer living in Utah with her husband and cats. Her debut novel Donn’s Hill (March 2017, Immortal Works Press) garnered rave reviews from fans of the cozy mystery and paranormal genres, and her new urban fantasy Superhero Syndrome (September 2017, Twisted Tree Press) will be out this fall. Watching scary movies through split fingers terrified Caryn as a child, and those nightmares inspire her to write now. She lives in a 90-year-old house with a colorful history, and the creaking walls and narrow hallways send her running (never walking) up the stairs from her basement. Exploring her fears through writing makes Caryn feel a little less foolish for wanting a buddy to accompany her into the tool shed.

When her fingers aren’t glued to her laptop keyboard, Caryn also enjoys binge-watching Netflix with her husband, reading, playing video games, and filling up her phone’s flash memory with pictures of her cats. She loves music and plays the bass guitar. Caryn is an active member of the League of Utah Writers and the Utah Chapter of the Horror Writers Association.

Preceded By Chaos Vol +1 – Blog Tour

 

Preceded by Chaos: Vol.+1

The protagonist, Mitchell Weaver, is a young Emergency Medicine doctor. Mitchell has entered a high stress, distinguished profession with the burden of a variety of particularly disturbing personal demons that he must battle every day in order to maintain the facade of sanity and control. The second instalment of the series, Volume +1, documents Mitchell’s state of mind as he tries his hand at decency and sobriety. Whether he finds himself at his job in New York or volunteering in the Dominican Republic, he struggles to suppress hedonistic urges and restructure awed philosophies. Although his attempts to gain control of his life are genuine, the question remains, “Is Mitchell gradually gaining control or is his life slowly falling apart.”

Amazon UK – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Preceded-Chaos-Vol-1-ebook/dp/B071JWS8L7/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1499942089&sr=1-1&keywords=preceded+by+chaos

Health and the human condition… We are born, we get sick, and lamentably, one day it all will end. It is unfortunate but true. In between hello cruel world and the grand finale we deal with health concerns that sometimes make us feel as if the grand finale maybe upon us and so we visit the Emergency Department for help. I am an emergency medicine doctor and as an emergency doctor my job is to find the sick person, the person that actually may be approaching their final pause, and do my best to pump the brakes on the momentum of the approaching inevitable end.
People come to the emergency department because they have nowhere else to go to address health concerns, whether it is a runny nose or a stroke. I am trained in treating emergencies so it’s my job to find the emergencies. Thankfully there are infinitely more runny noses than strokes so my job is basically finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. And so my experience in the Emergency Department reflects the cyclic process that is hours of wading through eminently stable patients which are abruptly interrupted by undergarment soiling episodes of stabilizing some unfortunate soul during their battle with the grim reaper. In the latter instances, the staff and I generally can stabilize these unstable individuals only to start the cycle again. The emotional see-saw nature of working in the Emergency Department is one of the things I love about my job and also one of the elements of the job that I try to capture in my book, Preceded by Chaos Volume +1.
My experience in emergency medicine is special in the since that I am a travel doctor. I travel to areas within the country that can’t staff their emergency departments. So aside from feeling the baseline gratification I feel for the helping individuals with their medical issues, and that most physicians feel, I also get the satisfaction from the feeling of knowing that I am contributing to helping to fill a community’s need for health care providers. With an unquenchable wanderlust I frequently travel for recreation but I am also extremely fortunate that my job allows me to frequently travel to places in the United States of America that I wouldn’t necessarily choose to visit were it not for work. Travel and exploration is important to me and this is also a concept which is part of my series, Preceded by Chaos, and certainly a part of the main character’s (Mitchell Weaver) journey.
Thank you for taking time to get to know a little about me. I hope you take time to read my series, Preceded by Chaos. I’m sure you will love it. Volume 0 is available now and Volume +1 is available on July 27th. Visit us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or at www.precededbychaos.com. Enjoy the journey.

INTO THE HEAT BANNER

Today we have the blog tour for INTO THE HEAT by Tamara Lush! Grab your copy today and follow along the tour!

into the heat cover

Into the Heat Synopsis:

A veteran and his first love meet again. Can they help each other heal on the Florida beach?

 

Leo Villeneuve joined the Marines and shipped off to Afghanistan because that’s what the men in his family do. And, if he’s honest, he was running from the family upheaval caused by his teen summer love’s pregnancy scare. Hard to say who was angrier, his father or her mother. He spent months in an earthly hell of heat, dust and battle before being wounded both physically and emotionally.

 

Now the Marine is back on Palmira Island to open a new bakery for his family’s business. But even if his first love is still here, Leo’s not sure she’ll want anything to do with a veteran suffering from PTSD so bad that he walks in his sleep — and possibly worse. If only he could remember the night the local recruiting office burned down … and whether he had anything to do with it.

 

Jessica Clarke was the girl left behind when her young lover was whisked away by his wealthy family. She put her life back together, and helped run her mom’s bed-and-breakfast on Palmira Island. She still loves the inn, but now she must make it a success on her own, and against opposition from her sister, who wants to sell. Still reeling from their mother’s death, Jess discovered her fiancé was cheating on her.

 

And just when Jess thinks her life can’t get any worse, Leo is back on Palmira Island. An older, more manly, more secretive Leo. The flame between them burns brighter than ever, but why does Leo coax her close, only to pull away? And will he still want her when he learns her secret anguish?

Exclusive Excerpt

I wait for him here at the place where the night sky and the earth become lovers. In the tall grass of our homeland, between two kingdoms, we meet.

 

Getting here early is easier than slipping away late, especially now when life in my village is bustling with the preparations for our wedding in just three days.

 

But as the reeds lick the backs of my calves, I know that this is only one part of the reason I wait.

 

The truth is that I like to feel him coming. At this hour, when my imagination reigns over every shape and whisper, I can almost see him walking on limbs taller and stronger than mine will ever be. He cuts through the night that hides his slightly lighter shade and stalks his prey. I cannot hear his approach, but I feel him drawing near, compelled by the same force that holds me where I stand—the scent of my desire in the air.

 

I close my eyes and breathe deeply, imagining I can taste him, too. The flavor is salt, sweet grass, and home. It fills my senses and makes me thirsty.

 

On the outside, my knees shake and my heart pounds, impatient for its mate, while the deepest part of me grows calm and still—stretching towards the peace that only his presence brings.

 

And he’s close now, so close.

Excerpt from AN ODE FOR ORCHIDS by JAMES FANT

As the sun started easing below the horizon, Maxwell and Tamara decided to take a walk down the beach, leaving Karen and William alone.

“William, I expect you to be on your best behavior while we’re gone,” Tamara said with a wink.

“I’ll be a perfect gentleman,” he replied.

As soon as they left, William asked Karen, “Do you want to go upstairs to my place?”

She tilted her head to the side and smiled. “I thought you said you were going to be a perfect gentleman.”

“Oh and I will.”

Karen thought about it for a few seconds and then she replied, “Okay, sure.”

As they walked up the steps to his apartment, William spied Karen’s backside. He really liked what he saw. Her beautiful face, her stunning body. But he had to admit that there was something else there, way beyond things physical. Maxwell told him to ignore it. But it was still there.

“This is my place,” William said as he opened the door for Karen.

“Okay, okay, I hear you. This is really nice.” She marveled at his décor. “I love the open space. Your place isn’t like Maxwell’s at all.”

“No. The previous owners of this unit made some serious upgrades.”

She admired the African statuettes as well as the life size mahogany framed poster of John Coltrane.

“What do you know about Giant Steps?” She rubbed her fingers over the elegant frame and looked at the late great tenor sax man in his element.

“Aw, that’s my favorite jazz record right there.”

“This portrait is autographed,” Karen noticed.

“Yes. My dad got that when he and my mom were overseas visiting some friends. My parents travelled a lot. They have college friends all over the place: Peru, Europe, Japan, all over the U.S. Sometimes they’d take me and my brothers along when they visited their friends. So I’ve literally been around the world.”

Karen toured the rest of the living room, admiring the tan Berber carpet and the suede couch and loveseat with oil-finished oval drum end tables. Then she made her way to the kitchen and dining room, complimenting William on his stainless steel appliances and marble counter tops. “Look at me,” she said. “I’m just making myself at home.”

That made William smile.

Then she asked, “I’m not going to find any of your girlfriend’s panties lying around here, am I?”

He laughed. “No, no, no. There are no panties because there is no girlfriend.”

“I find that hard to believe.”

“What about you? Do you have a boyfriend?”

“Nope. I am single.”

“I find that really hard to believe.”

Karen took a seat on one of the Cierra bar stools. “Why is that?” she asked.

“You’re too beautiful to not have a man.”

That made her smile. “Aw shucks. But wouldn’t you know that I get that all of the time.”

William and Karen just looked at each other for a moment, beaming. A part of him wanted to scream, I’m in love with you! I dreamed about you last night!

But instead he asked, “Do you want something to drink?”

“Bottled water’s fine.”

“Coming up.”

William retrieved two bottles of Dasani from his pantry and handed one to Karen along with a paper towel.

“It must be nice living right on the beach,” she said as she looked out onto the balcony. By then the sky was lit with thousands of stars.

“It has its perks, until a hurricane comes. Um—do you want to go out to the balcony?”

“Sure.”

They quietly sat on the balcony, enjoying the night sky and the sounds of the ocean’s waves crashing against the sandy shore.

“I have a balcony in my bedroom, too.” Why did I just say that, William thought.

“Oh yeah? If I lived out here, and I had a balcony in my bedroom, I’d sleep with the door open every night so I can hear the ocean. It’s magical.”

Karen glanced over at William, who caught her looking. She quickly looked away.

“I’m glad that Tamara asked me to come with her tonight. I was really getting tired of her trying to fix me up with guys.” Oh goodness! Why did I just say that, Karen thought.

“Yeah, Tamara’s nice. Maxwell is head over heels for her. And he doesn’t usually do head over heels, believe it or not. He was very nervous before y’all showed up.”

“Nervous isn’t always bad. Sometime nervous is a good thing.”

Karen giggled.

“What’s so funny?”

“Oh nothing.”

“Nothing in woman-speak means something.”

“Woman-speak?”

He gave a shy smile and said, “Never mind.”

“What? Don’t be scared. Tell me what woman-speak means.”

He turned to face her. She gave him her full attention.

“Woman-speak is when you say one thing but mean another.”

“Elaborate.”

“Oh boy, I’m in trouble now.”

“You’re not in trouble.” She brushed her hand against his arm. “Continue.”

“Like when something’s on a woman’s mind and her man asks, ‘What’s wrong?’ And she says ‘Nothing.’ But in reality something is really wrong. And her man has to keep on asking her what’s wrong until she finally tells him. Woman-speak. You ladies have your own language.”

“So are you an expert on women?”

“By no stretch. But I have a great appreciation for women. My mother’s a woman.”

Karen chuckled again. “That’s nice. You know, William, I was worried about you earlier. You were all quiet. I didn’t know what was wrong with you.”

“I guess I was just nervous.”

“It’s like I said earlier; sometimes nervous is a good thing.”

They looked at each other briefly, Karen admiring William’s handsome smile, he marveling her beautiful eyes.

Then he asked, “So Tamara is trying to set you up with someone, huh?”

“I cannot believe I told you that.”

“So let’s not disappoint her. We should go out.”

“You mean like on a date?”

“Yes. Dinner, a movie perhaps.”

“You’re a nice enough guy. I guess that will be fine.”

“I am a nice enough guy,” he replied. “And I promise. I will be a perfect gentleman.”
