Blog Tour (Guest Post & Giveaway): Darkest Day by Emi Gayle

Title: Darkest Day (The 19th Year #3)
Emi Gayle
Publisher: J. Taylor Publishing
Release Date: January 6, 2014

Mac Thorne’s time as a Changeling is coming to an end.

It may have taken eighteen years, but Mac did finally manage to do what the Council wanted: she chose a teacher and renounced the in-between.

There’s just one last step. She must say goodbye to her human. Forever.

After being challenged in every way possible, Mac leaves what she thought would be the easiest task for the last possible moment. As midnight on July fourth draws near, though, she hasn’t found a way to give up Winn Thomas.

Nor does she want to.

With time running out, Mac stands at a literal crossroads. Choose Winn, and she’ll be stripped of the only family she’s ever known — vampires, dragons, and her favorite demon. Even her own mother. Accept her position on the Council and rule as an equal to her twelve peers, and she’ll forget Winn ever existed.

Independence and freedom have never before been so limiting.

In this final chapter of the
19th Year Trilogy, it’s time for Mac to decide.

Responsibility? Or Love?

What I Learned Most About Myself While Writing This Series
Emi Gayle

What did I learn about me? I'll give you five things.

1 - I love my characters. I swear to you that I came to love them and I cried when I finished because that meant they were leaving me. Or I was leaving them. One of the two.

2 - I love to write separate books from separate POVs. Getting into the head of a character is so much fun. I love to think through what someone else might be thinking of. And writing it out means I get to see it on 'paper' too.

3 - I'm an emotional wreck when a Hallmark card comes on the TV. This has happened since my kids were born and not before. Now, I'm an emotional wreck when writing a scene with a cliffhanger that I have to leave for days and come back to just to have my head on straight again.

4 - Romance and the build up and budding love of teenagers brings back tons of memories for me - memories that I can revel in and live vicariously through even if they are mine to begin with.

5 - The End never means The End. Thank goodness!

About the Author

Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenage son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years.

Ironically, those years were some of Emi's favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she's still in love with him to this day. She'll never forget what it was like to fall in love at such a young age — emotions she wants everyone to feel.

  1. Well, isn't this funny? I looked at my GoodReads TBR list and I've had the first book on my radar since 2012, but somehow never got around to reading it! This series sounds like a lot of fun, though, I may have to give it a try sometime. Thanks for featuring this today and for reminding me!
