Welcome! Today I am very excited to be a part of the Gilded Wings by Amy Lignor blog tour. I read Until Next Time and loved it after receiving it from the author to review. I believe that review is what got my blog noticed my the wonderful Tribute Books, who I have been working with ever since. I have been anticipating the next book in this series and actually asked to be a pat of the blog tour when I saw there was a release date for the book. It was a while before the blog tour was even planned, but I had to be part of it. Needless to say I'm pretty excited about this book. On my post you get to read a small excerpt from the book and a guest post from one of the characters, Matt. I hope you enjoy the post as much as I did.
Character Guest Post:
A Day in the Life of a Warrior
Hey everybody! This is Matthew and I was asked to take you all through a ‘day in the life’ of ME up here. I have to say, it’s basically like a day in the life down there - just way brighter. Sometimes it actually hurts your eyes. My partner, Emily (you know, the sarcastic one) actually brought sunglasses up here. She kind of looks like she’s playing the lead in Grease. Anyway…
People ask if I sleep and I do…actually, more than I should. But when I rise, I head into the TV room where I watch the news. I don’t like it most times. We see everything that’s going on down there and try to figure out ways to help from up here - which is really hard. After eating - and yes, we eat - BIG TIME. (I can’t even tell you how amazing the food is up here. Anything you want at any time of day. Forget McDonald’s, Heaven lets you have it ’Your Way’ all the time.
After breakfast I head to Michael’s classroom with Emily. She and I - and I know we’re too old for shenanigans now - still like to drive him nuts. Yesterday she brought one of St. Francis’ elephants into class (her name is Jenny). She trumpeted her horn while Michael tried to teach us about the Roman Army. I have to say…it would’ve been boring without the elephant. Jenny made cool special effects.
Heading into Gabriel’s classroom, Emily and I still train in the pit. We need to make sure we can fight down there, protect - unfortunately, if we’re a little on the angry side with each other the battles can get a little out of hand sometimes. But…I don’t think it can be helped…the emotions between us. Well…you all know by now what I‘m fighting for when it comes to her.
We’re getting prepared for our, hopefully, ‘third time’s the charm’ lifetime, and things will be way different. I still hold the hope that we’ll be partners down there in other ways besides the job when all is said and done. We usually break from each other after Gabe and Mike. She heads to Francis and I usually head to our favorite ‘love saint’ because I really need to get that whole thing together in order to make Em see that I’m the charming one…and not Jason.
There’s a lot of hallways to run around and doors to open up here, so it’s kind of an adventure everyday. And then, when the sun sets, I always head into the library (my favorite place) and Emily is always sitting there. I swear, I hope in one of these lives she can be a librarian. After all, that’s what she loves.
I hope I can meet you all up here someday; it would be cool since you‘re reading our stories. But, for right now, I’d rather meet you down there. Life is a whole lot of fun…and it’s SO not over for me and Em!
Until Next Time, Everybody.
