Unhinged Blog Tour + Unleashed Rerelease!


Hey everyone!

Wanted to stop by and let you all know that there's a two week long blog tour for Unhinged going on hosted by Paranormal Cravings! Here's a link to their site and the page so you can check out all the tour stops!

http://www.pcbookreviews.com/2015/07/started-today-2week-book-tour-unhinged-underworld-1-by-tempest-c-avery/

There's also a giveaway to go along with it, so sign up for a chance to win either one paperback copy of the book, or one of five eBook copies! For those of you who've already read the first book, the second book, Unleashed was just rereleased! There's a link to where you can purchase it in the previous post! :) If you're reading, please leave a review on Goodreads, as it's the best way to help spread the word and get other people interested.

In case any of you are new here, below is the blurb for Unhinged, which you can purchase by clicking on the cover image over to the right of the page.

Blurb:

Spencer Perry lost everything the day her boyfriend died. Even when he came back as a ghost, she was never able to return to her old self. Determined to find a way to bring both of them back–him from the dead and her from her depression–Spencer hops a ride with a Reaper across the river to the Underworld where she meets the god of the dead. Hadrian isn’t what she expected Hades to be like, but when he agrees to a deal that can get her Micah back, she puts all caution aside and accepts. Too bad she didn’t realize that she’d also just accepted a lot more than one gorgeous yet frustrating god. Bad things are happening all around her, and now she not only has to worry about keeping Micah’s ghost status a secret from their friends, but also figure out who’s behind all of the accidents. All signs point towards Hadrian, but something about that just doesn’t feel right to her. Something that she hopes has nothing to do with her growing attraction towards him.

Unleashed is back!!!!!! :)

It's back!!! For all of you who've asked me when the second book of the Underworld saga would be rereleased, it finally has been! Thank you to everyone who's supported this series so far, and for everyone who read this book already the first time it was published, don't worry, the third one is on its way as well! Below is the blurb for Unleashed. It'll be going up on Goodreads as well as the third book, Unbound, which should be out sometime in July!

It's been three months since Spencer Perry first made her deal with the god of the Underworld-a year of her spending nights below in exchange for the life of her boyfriend Micah. Now with Micah back, making those promised trips to hang with Hadrian-better known as Hades-has gotten even more complicated. Not to mention the fact that an evil Persephone is hell bent on releasing malicious spirits on the world. And on Spencer. The threat forces her to spend more time with the god, and less time with Micah, igniting feelings within her that leave her guilty and confused. How could she be falling for Hadrian when she's always believed that Micah was her soulmate? The clock on their deal is ticking down, but with every second Persephone gets more and more restless with lying in wait. In the end, the only way through the evils of the Underworld might be for Spencer to give into her true feelings. No matter who that ends up being for.

Here's the link to buy:

If you've read the first book and I told you I'd give you a review copy of Unleashed please get a hold of me on Goodreads.com! I have a list, but fear I may have over looked a few people! :)

Also, be sure to check out the two books I still have up for free reads on Swoonreads.com! The links are all over the blog. And check out the two chapters I've posted to the pages bar on the left of a new book I'm working on!

*insert witty post title here!*

Ok, I got a little lazy above with the title, but there are only so many posts I can put the word NEWS on so...yeah.

Thanks to everyone who signed up for the giveaways of my books, Beguiling Trickery and Within a Dream! Those two paperback copies have been mailed! For any of you who still want to read either or both of these, you can do so for FREE on the site Swoonreads.com! You can follow the link at the right where the cover for Within a Dream is just by clicking on it!

If you want to read but prefer not to read it on the website, there's currently a R2R going on in the group Fangirls and Fanboys on Goodreads.com! That means you can get the book for free in either ePub, .mobi, or PDF format! There are a limited number of copies so act fast! Here's the link:

I'm sure most of you have read the blurb a thousand times by now, but in case there's a newcomer, here it is:

Two all powerful beings want her. One is a literal nightmare, the other is a god.


Kenna Erikson knows absolutely nothing about Norse mythology. Which is daunting, considering she’s a volur, a type of seer the Vikings believed garnered favor with the gods. For the most part, she ignores her gifts, and the useless ability to foresee thirty or so seconds into the future. For as long as she can remember, she’s had only herself to rely on, and she likes that just fine. However, when shadows suddenly come alive and attack her, she’s forced to seek outside help in the form of tall, blonde, and infinitely annoying, Luka. Somehow, Luka knows all about her attackers, and the mythology they spring from. He’s also eager to help out, despite the fact they’ve only just met. But what secret is he keeping? Who is he really? And why does her heart flip every time he’s around?

NEW NEWS!!!

I went ahead and posted the first chapter to a new book I'm sort of working on! I figured why not at this point, right? I've got so much else that's out there so figured it'd be fun to try a different approach. Below is the link to the first chapter, please go and check it out! I'd really like to know what you guys think! :) I have a few more chapters written but won't be posting them until I know if this is something I should keep up.

Here's a working Blurb:

Melinda Gray isn't really her name. She isn't really a Blood citizen, and technically, she's not really a member of the Blood army. Placed in enemy territory at a young age, being a spy is practically all that Melinda knows. Five years pretending to be someone else, cut off from the people she loves, has left its mark. But now it's all coming to a head; she's finally gotten an audience with the allusive Blood king. Just a few more weeks, months top, and she might be able to finally go home. Of course, in order to do that, she needs to remember who she really is, and that that girl absolutely, under no circumstances, can have real feelings for the king. Pretending is allowed, but what happens when the line blurs and Melinda finds herself in a reality made of smoke and mirrors?

Do you guys think I should also start posting chapters here on the blog? I could create a new page for them...?

Speaking of the Underworld, book two in the saga, Unleashed, should be rereleased sometime by the end of this week!!!! Fingers crossed! Keep checking back for more info as well as the actual release!

In final news, I've been thinking about posting chapters of a new book I'm working on, just for the fun of it. Other than on Wattpad, I've never really done that before, but feel it might be a good way for readers to interact. Let me know if you think this might be a good idea. If so, where should I do it? Stick with Wattpad, post chapters here on the blog, or Goodreads.com? Or maybe even all three. :) Would love to hear your thoughts on this, guys!

Finally, as always, if anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to ask! I love hearing from you guys! Most of you already know, speedier responses come from my Goodreads. Just putting that out there again! But feel free to comment here as well! ;)

*Also, if you know of anyone, maybe yourself, interested in helping run the book review blog I have with my best friend, as well as the Goodreads.com group for it, please let me know!!!!*

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5171960.Tempest_C_Avery

Mila's lived her whole life with one goal: destroying the upir, and sometimes their lesser evil cousins, vampires. She's fought and trained for almost all of her eighteen years so that she'd be ready to lead the Ouroboros order, a society of hunters that has been around since Dracula was known simply as Vlad the Impaler. She's successfully executed many kills, led hundreds of hunting parties, and honed her abilities as a runemaster. But something's coming, something that even a life like Mila's couldn't prepare someone for. Hunters are dropping all around her, and monsters are doing the unheard of. Working together.
Rogen's second life has been about one thing: protecting his people. He's long since accepted his role in the vast supernatural world, and what's more, he's learned to relish in the power. Which is why it pisses him off so much when something shows up announced, screwing with the order of things. With only one option left to him, Rogen undergoes the unthinkable, guising himself as a moroi hunter in the Ouroboros order. There was a time when he respected their services, but having been corrupted some centuries back, his opinion of them has altered since. He's going to have to convince them to join forces if they're ever going to stop whatever's coming. The only problem is, doing so might actually be more impossible than stopping the biggest evil the world's ever seen.

Giveaways/Free reads!

There are currently two giveaways up on Goodreads.com for paperback copies of my books: Within a Dream, and Beguiling Trickery! For those of you who sign up and don't win, or if you're just interested in reading, both of these books can be read for FREE on Swoonreads.com! The links to both of these books and where they can be read are at the bottom of this post! :) Here's the cover art, blurbs, and links' to the giveaways!


Within a Dream:

Lily likes being a witch. Sure, aside from floating pencils and telepathically communicating with her three best friends, there aren’t many real perks. Until it brings two of the hottest guys she’s ever seen into her life. Of course, there are always strings, and this one comes in the form of a prophecy foretelling her saving, and eventually ruling, a realm she’s never heard about in this lifetime. With dark fey suddenly hunting them down, Lily and her friends are forced to make a decision, complete the prophecy or turn their backs. If that isn’t enough stress, Lily also has a choice to make of her own. Trust in their brooding dark haired guide, Larkin? Or the golden dream stalker Ronan? One claims he’s her soul mate. Both want her back in a realm she can’t recall. What’s a girl to do?

Beguiling Trickery Release!!!!! FREE read!

Alright everyone, my book, Beguiling Trickery, is finally out and available as a FREE read on the site Swoonreads.com! Please go and check it out! Again, for those of you who don't know about it, Swoonreads.com is a place where anyone can post up their completed teen novel in hopes of getting picked for a possible publishing deal! This is based a lot off of reviews, and comments, so go read and leave some!

If you're just checking in and don't know anything about this book, it's based in the same universe as my Underworld series. However, unlike with that series, which revolves around Greek mythology, most notably that of Hades and Persephone, this trilogy focuses on Norse myth instead. If Hadrian is Hades, I wonder who Luka is? ;)

Below I've placed a blurb, and a link to the book! Again, please go and check this out! If anyone has any troubles reading (I've gotten PMs from people about this in regards to my other book on there, Within a Dream) please let me know! I'm thinking about getting a few PDF copies out there to people who can't read on the site, with understanding that in return they'll post their honest review and comments to the site once they'd read it. Want to know more about Luka before you check it out? I've recently added a new section to the right called, Ask Away, where characters are "interviewed". You don't have to PM questions, just post them in the comments there! :)

And without further ado, Beguiling Trickery:
