Have y’all met my fun, feisty friend, Beth Teliho?
Well it’s time to fix that. She’s a great friend, a brilliant blogger, and an up and coming author. So, of course, when I found out her book was finally making it’s much awaited appearance I just had to invite her to get to know you guys. (And did I forget to mention she’s also generous? She left a chance to win a prize if you hang out….)
So, without further ado, the brilliant and beautiful Beth Teliho!
Hey everybody! Thanks for having me. Kitt asked me to share a bit about my book, so here goes.
Imagine yourself as eighteen again. No, really. Think about that time in your life. All the uncertainties. The trepidation and excitement mixed with insecurity and fear. The angst. Hormones charging through your veins like bulls, twisting and turning your emotions on a dime. The yearning to find yourself and understand who you are.
What if on top of all that you also had an enormous secret? One that no one else in the world knows except an empath, who also happens to be your brother. Not even your parents…or a single friend.
Imagine this secret so encompassing, it swallows the rest of your world whole, like the sun’s shadow eclipsing the moon. Other experiences are muted as a result. You feel empty and desperate; you’re disconnected from your family, and unable to make friendships.
You exist in a figurative cave. The only beacon of hope is the sliver of light your secret provides. The secret you love as much as you hate. The secret that robs you like a thief in the night while providing the air you breathe.
And even though you tried desperately to research information about it…you’re left with nothing. Zero. Nada. Nil.
Because it has no name. It has no support group. In fact, it doesn’t appear to exist anywhere else in the world. Which is why even if you could tell someone…you wouldn’t. They’d think you were insane.
Can you envision this? Are you feeling the immense pressure on your chest, squeezing your lungs? Feel the crushing isolation? The bitter angst in your veins, boiling with rage?
Good. You’ve just entered the world of Devi Bennett, the main character of Order of Seven.
But the secret isn’t Devi’s only problem. There’s also her unknown heritage, a reoccurring dream about an African tribal ceremony that’s plagued her since childhood, and an inexplicable connection to a certain tree. Mysteries that she hopes can be explained by finding her biological family.
“My older brother, Nodin, remembers more than me.
But I have something he doesn’t.
I have the dream.”
Then she meets Baron, an intense and alluring energy healer, whose prophetic dreams seem to be connected to her.
“Two days ago I didn’t even know this man.
Now his absence is an earthquake.”
But when one of his visions leads to an ancient legend that could link to her birthright, she learns her secret may be more imperative than she ever thought imaginable.
“The air seems to suck out of the room, leaving a silence so loud it’s screaming.”
Order of Seven is a unique, edge-of-your-seat novel that intricately weaves, adventure, danger, mystery, magic, love, religion, hope, self- discovery, family, and fate into a ride you won’t soon forget.
You won’t read this book. You will eat it. Drink it. Inhale it.
You will live it. Real time. Through Devi’s eyes.
It will crawl under your skin and consume you. Let it.
This is the kind of possession you want.
