My Writing Process -- Blog Tour

I'd like to thank Lolah Lace inviting me to the blog tour. 

1)     What am I working on?

I'm working on a paranormal young adult romance.

2)     How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I don't really know how different this book is as I don't read other books in this genre. I try not to read a lot of books by authors who write similar things to me, as I don't want to subconsciously affect my vision.

3)     Why do I write what I do?
I enjoy romance, reading it and writing it.


4)     How does your writing process work?
I brainstorm ideas and put together an outline. Once that's done I start writing until I'm done.

Giveaway and Spotlight On: Blood Prophecy II by Barb Jones



When you are in love with the one you fear and hate the most, it leaves you no options. How can you fight her, protect her, when all it would do is leave you in pieces?
Amber and Chloe are pulled deeper in the Prophecy that revealed itself at the moment they became friends. Michael is pulled into different directions. One to love and protect his Queen or to join forces with the Vampire Hunter and kill the Queen before the Blood Prophecy is revealed. His choie along with the birth of the Child from a vampire and witch marks the intensity of the Blood Prophecy. Once the child is born, the path of the prophecy is laid out and Amber must obey that path.
Could she unite the races or destroy them all with the child?



EXCERPT:

Malakai had a special connection to Amber, though for the life of him, he couldn’t remember how or why. The only thing that he could remember was the message he had to tell her. He cleared his throat as his fingers ran through this hair. Normally, Malakai’s hair was always tied back, but since his injuries the night before, his hair was wild and long. He began to speak to Amber.

“My blood continues to flow yet boils as I haven’t been able to finish what I started. Know this, vampire bitch, the Chosen you are bound to will fail you. I am your only salvation in your destiny. You think that you are destined for greatness, when in fact you are destined for death. Your wolf companion shares a secret of your parentage you do not know and I have wiped his memories from him. If you want what you seek, meet me. The time and choosing of the hour will be mine to make. Guard this wolf beast all you want, but his mind is controlled by my choosing. And I choose to destroy you and the rest of your Chosen. The King is not your only enemy. Your hour will come.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

My writing has always been a passion of mine as a way to express my imagination and creativity.  It began when I was little and was just something I fostered as I grew older.  Writing is a way for me to lose myself in so many different daydreams.  Because I love the stories of vampires, witches and other paranormal figures, I wanted to enter the world with my own characters, each resembling characteristics that I can only imagine having or experienced.  When I had children, I could see how they loved to read and I wanted to be a role model in the world of literature for them.  I majored in Political Science and also earned a Masters in Information Systems, that writing gives me an opportunity to dream about the paranormal world. I've read so many reviews of "Queen's Destiny", that it both humbled me and inspired me to continue with my writing.
Writing is my escape from reality to enter a world that has always been a favorite and I look forward to continuing.

Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop!!


Hello and Welcome to my stop on the Midwinter's Giveaway Hop!! A big thank you to Mary @ Book Hounds and Kathy @ I am a Read not a Writer for putting this huge blog hop together!!  My name is Bisi Leyton and I write paranormal YA!  So what am I giving away here?  Why a $15 amazon card and an e-book copy of Wisteria....let's take a look at the  book:


Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows. 

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

Prologue - Excerpt

Thirteen months after the first official case of Nero Disease
“Wisteria, run!” Rebecca O’Leary screamed over the radio.
Wisteria Kuti whipped around and came face-to-face with the blood-red eyes of a hungry flesh-eating biter. The biter was a man, infected by Nero Disease, who had long lost his mind. He looked more animal than human and he wanted one thing—to feed on the flesh of uninfected people. The biter growled and staggered toward Wisteria.
She fled down the deserted road to the nearest house. The front door was locked. She kicked at the door, but it didn’t open. Taking out her handgun, she smashed through the window of the door.
“Ugh,” more biters growled behind her.
She spun around, fired once, and hit one in the head. She unlocked the door by reaching in and turning the lock. Once inside, she chained and bolted the door.
Crash—a biter smashed through another window into the house.
Wisteria’s heart jumped and she darted up the stairs as fast as she could.
“Get out of the house, Wisteria!” Rebecca radioed.
I’m trying.
A biter grabbed her ankle as she ran. Falling hard on the steps, she wailed in pain. “Ah.” No time to cry, Wisteria. She fired at the biter holding her. One bullet left.
Three more biters appeared below and started coming up the stairs. Leaping up, she sprinted to the top floor and dashed into the first open doorway that led to the master bedroom. Locking the door, she headed straight for the window.
The infected clawed at the door, tearing it apart and snarling as they entered.
