The Protectors Blog Tour: GRAND GIVEAWAY & Guest post on "Character Secrets"

The Protectors Blog Tour: Character Secrets


Hey, everyone! Emily here. This is one of my last stops for my blog tour for my YA Epic Fantasy series, The Protectors, is on tour! The books follow a family of shape changers as they struggle against a group of oppressive noblemen called the Protectors.

Have you ever visited Post Secret ( People mail in their secrets on postcards. I thought it'd be fun to do some for my characters. There are a lot of secrets rolling around in the world of the Protectors, especially in the first book, <i>Promising Light</i>. I don't want to spoil the fun of finding those out with the characters, so I went with more personal ones rather than plot-related ones.

Context: before Promising Light.

I'm secretly seeing a noble who is courting another woman. My father dislikes him and his family, and I don't know why. I should know better, but I think I'm falling for him. And I don't want it to be a secret anymore.

I used to look for ways to punish myself for deaths. Then I fell in love with her and I stopped.

I'm with Matt, but I'm lying to myself and to him when I pretend it will work. I never loved anyone but Evan and I never will. I'll probably die alone.

I close my eyes and pretend he's Seth.

If you want to read more about these characters and their secrets, be sure to check out the series at Amazon or any other ebook retailer!
