Product Details
 Transcendent: Tales of the Paranormal
Don't forget to enter all the giveaways from yesterday, here. (You have until Jan. 3rd.) and.....

There is a giveaway of Transcendent at the bottom of this blog. Good luck!

This is an awesome anthology of stories by 7 different awesome authors, three of which I know personally- Wendy Swore, Lani Woodland and Melanie Marks. You will love this book and at only .99 cents, you'll love it even more.

Today I am focusing on just one, Wendy, our farmer-girl.
The fun interview:

Me: To write such an interesting book, you must be an interesting person. What are some fun facts about you?

Wendy:  I'm a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I still sometimes teach afterschool classes.  I also run a farm and can pick 42 ears of corn a minute. (Thus the Goddess of the Corn title to my blog) 

Me: I'll have to bone up on my corn picking skills and challenge you to a contest next summer. Give us some more.

Wendy: I speak Spanish (I taught my husband to say I love you & kiss me--gotta learn the important stuff first.)  When I was 18, I lived in Spain and visited England, Poland & Sweden (I used my life savings to pay for that semester abroad.) My dad was a crop duster so we followed his work, moving from Sacramento CA, to Walla Walla WA, to Logan UT, to Portland Or, to Pocatello ID. 

Me:Such a cool experience! I'm sure every penny you spent was going abroad was worth it.
Tell me about your rocking book.

Wendy:  It's a YA paranormal anthology with 8 stories from 7 different authors. It's getting great reviews from awesome authors like Ali Cross, Tristi Pinkston, Elana Johnson, Karen Hoover, and more! They love it, and I'm thrilled! I have 2 stories in the book: Strike, and Spectre. Strike is about a girl who witnesses a boy getting struck by lightning--an event that blasts his soul right out of his body and into something else.... In Spectre, two girls are thrilled to find the perfect decorations for their homecoming party, but when darkness falls, the d├ęcor comes to life.


Me: They sound amazing! I have Transcendent loaded on my Nook and can't wait to read it. 
I know there are some giveaways out there celebrating the launch. What are they?
