Treasure Quest: Discovery lies between the covers: Mega Author Blog Hop Tour


So welcome to my blog hop….

Sara’s Quest!! 

Now I wasn’t even sure I could get away with a blog hop like this but the Supreme Commander, Kristine, has said that I’m good to go and so here I am.
I really struggled with an idea that would fit in with the theme for this month until I realised that I could combine two things that I really love and create something unique! So this is a blog hop with a role playing game element!

4)  MEET AND MINGLE WITH ALL THE AUTHORS! EXPERIENCE A NEW PARTY DESTINATION AT EVERY STOP! PARTICIPATE IN EVERY BLOG CONTEST AND BE ENTERED FOR CHANCES TO WIN MULTIPLE PRIZES! EVERY BLOG VISITED IS ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO WIN!!

5)  PARTICIPATION AT ALL BLOGS IS RECOMMENDED, BUT NOT REQUIRED. REMEMBER, THE MORE BLOGS YOU HOP, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING PRIZES. EVERY AUTHOR IS WAITING TO MEET AND INTERACT WITH YOU, SO PLEASE BE SURE TO SHOW EVERY AUTHOR SOME LOVE!

6)  DID I MENTION TO HAVE FUN?  WHOO! HOO!! HERE WE GOOOOOOOOOOOO!

***Authors have full discretion to choose an alternate winner in the event any winner fails to claim their prize(s) within 72 hours of their name being posted or after notification of  win, whichever comes first. Anyone who participates in this blog hop tour is subject to these rules***

So now the rules are done, are you ready to start our quest? Here we go then.

What is your role you ask?

Your name is Sara Quicksilver, the heroine in my novel, Seared by Desire.

Swordsmith. Fire elemental. Outcast.

You have to live her life, make decisions that will have consequences and hopefully find the treasure that she’s looking for!

Let me explain. You’re a fire elemental, a proud race of warriors that prize strength above all else. The more powerful your flame, the more you’re worth as a person.

Sadly you have less control over fire than a child. Weak is worthless among fire elementals and sadly that’s where you fall. As an outcast you turn to the reliability of steel to defend yourself and have forged a life for yourself lonely though it might be.

But one day that all changes. You find yourself sharing your body with the childish and vengeful spirit of fire, Seraphina.

Suddenly you’re the strongest fire elemental alive!! Great right?

Not quite.

All this new found power comes with conditions attached. There’s only one you really need to worry about. It’s a little one mind. So small that you probably shouldn’t even concern yourself with it.

Alright, I’ll just spit it out.

Seraphina is a death sentence.

See, I told you. It’s only a small condition!

Okay, okay. I can hear you grumbling from here. I’ll cut you a break. If you find the one to cool your flame then I’ll let you off the hook with the death sentence. Easy enough right?

Well it would be I suppose except for a few tiny, minuscule little things. Again, they’re so microscopically insignificant that they don’t appear on anyone’s radar. Let’s not even talk about them….I hear you grumbling again. Fine, I’ll tell you! Geez, there’s really no pleasing some people but I must remind you these are only tiny little obstacles.

  1. You have no idea who ‘the one to cool your flame is’ and nope, no one is going to tell you so you’re just going to have to take a stab in the dark and guess.
  2. Your people, the fire elementals, are quite set on turning your death into a weapon and killing their enemies of which there’s an almost endless supply.
  3. You’ve never left your village. Fire elemental law is quite strict. If you’re a disgrace to the strength of your people (you are by the way) then no one can ever know you exist.
Okay so you don’t know where you’re going, how to get there, what you’re looking for and you have people actively coordinating your death….I told you they were tiny details. But they are details you’re going to have to deal with. So let’s get started shall we?
I’ve set the scene, the rest is up to you.
Oh, I should probably let you know what the prize is for finding the treasure at the end of the quest and how you can win!!

I’m giving away 3 ebook copies of Seared by Desire!

1)  Click that small button in the top right hand corner that let’s you follow this blog and my twitter.

2) Head over to my facebook page and become a fan:

3)  In the comments section, explain why you made a particular choice. You only have to explain yourself ONCE. Anymore than that is just a bonus.

4) Optional: Friend me on goodreads

5) Optional: If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

The winner will be the most original/amusing/outrageous answer! Or the answer that most resembles what Sara was thinking at the time!

 Come back to this blog, click the link posted below, hop to the next blog contest and don’t forget the most important thing, enjoy yourself it’s a quest after all!

Now here are your options:

1 – You can stay with your people and do good by them. You can finally be something other than a disgrace. You can make your race proud. 

Or

2 – You can run away. These people have been nothing but awful to you your entire life. They don’t deserve your sacrifice.

Click which way you want to go and see where it takes you.

If however, embarking on this sort of quest isn’t your cup of tea then head straight over to the amazing Lindsay Downs! 

I hope you have an amazing time whichever path you go down =)

    I am leaving because hopefully I will find the one that cools my fire and be able to save face and become something my people will be pround of. Of course it would be fun to just flick everyone off and run away. 🙂

    I’vew liked your FB page, and we are friends on FB. I LOVE choose your own adventures!

    I decided to make a break for it. (pffft as though I would burn up for a people who never cared for me and wanted to benifit from my death after they had been so awful? Psahw as if!)
    Then I jumped out the window (after all what’s there to lose after my BFF has decided to follow the party line?)
    Followed by trying to escape- after jumping out a window you think gates are an obstacle? *blows rasberry*

    AH AH! You meanie! LOL *huffs* fine…fine… now here’s hoping I’ll win so I can find out what happened to me….errr….her.

    I did all of the above including goodreads 🙂 Allthough on Facebook I’m Melissa Sanchez Dempsey and on Twitter I’m MelissaDempsey1
    I decided to make a break for it (because why should I sacrifice myself to help people that hate me??)
    Then I jumped out the window (because she is my best friend and even if she’s on the other side now I still love her)
    Then Gates are really no obstacle, as last resort I can always burn them down right?? (haha I wrote this before reading that I burned them down)
    And then I meet Lucian okay he doesn’t want anything to do with me?? Darn well I can be persistent 🙂

    I would run away, they’d been horrible to me. Then again, I’d feel guilty for just up and leaving… However, in the end, I would do what was best for me, even if that meant running away.

      24/07/2011 at 8:57 am

      Ah guilt is a heavy burden to bear…But you’re alive and that’s got to be an improvement right?

    1,Well.. I decided to stay. Yes i know i know, you probably think that I’m and naive idiot but everyone ran away at first and i was curious what will they doing with me exactly. And Then i ended up tied and drugged…ya…i wanted to stay, now look what i got for exchange…not exactly a good deal.. anyways

    2,After the shocking news what kind of situation i was, i thought “go to hell you showy selfish warmonger bastards!!” And i tried to break free this time…

    3, But i get trapped quickly, nah…. not so surprising with my luck. Those arrogant people can’t understand that they have to woke up earlier and work soo hard to trap me again, but it won’t work! After a serious consideration i jumped out a freakin’ window, just because i didn’t want to hurt my friend (C’mon what the hell is she thinking?!?!) Landed in one peace but it’s still hurts like hell…

    4, They wanted to stop with a GATE! A gate??? seriously?? Cause I say BURN baby BURN!!

    After everything I met the man who i needed and he wants to walk away?!?! He wish….I’m pretty sure I’m not going to let him go..hell no after what I’ve been through to get here…

    Huh.. i want mooooore!! more decisions, more actions!! I’m burning with curiosity i really need to find that cooler thing!! hm what would it be?? may be an ebook copy!! yes yes that’s it lol…. sorry for the looong comment, but i really enjoyed this! xD And I always love your posts 🙂

    I made a break for it, jumped out the window, burned down the gate, and ended up in the lap of a man who didn’t want me.
    I can’t wait to read this book!!

    I can’t wait to read this book! Thanks for the fun adventure!

    I would run away safely holding Abigail…then I would heroically duck through the woods and evil tree branches, cross several rivers, stop to admire a few flowers, then head for Vegas ><

    Hi! My path would to have to run away because what kind of people would make you sacrifice yourself? Especially for their own selfish needs. There has to be another way, so I decided to make a break for it. I’ll find the one person to cool me down, anything is better then dieing for my people.

    At first you weren’t so proud of me, lol. I chose to stay, thinking, the one would end up there, and then I would leave to find him….but I ended up choosing the right way, and you were proud, lol

    Really love how you did this!
