Q+A with Emily Cyr
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Emily: I started writing short stories in collage. I wrote a whole lot of fan fiction before I decided I wanted my own world to build and play around with. I started putting seriously effort into a novel in early 2014.
EJ: What brought you to the science fiction genre?
Emily: I remember very clearly it was Highlander. It was the first thing I remember being drawn to. I have seen all of the movies and all of the tv episodes. I may be slightly obsessed.
Also, I love comic books, especially X-Men. When I was little I would pray every night to wake up to be Jubilee. Just FYI it hasn't worked...yet.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Emily: I would be a vampire. I mean I know it's an easy answer but it's true. There's something so sexy about it!
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Emily: I have a new book The Lightning Legacy coming out July 30th. It is the sequel to The Lightning Prophecy. This series intertwines witches and werewolves in a new and enchanting way. Book two picks up right where book one left off. The Lightning Legacy deals with a lot of heavy things and the MC changes quite a bit. But, it's filled with action, romance, suspense and lore. There really is something for everyone in this trilogy.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Emily: Reid would have to be Chris Hemsworth for sure!
Mitch Saldana has got to be played by Henry Cavill
For Delaney Hagen I would choose Emilia Clarke (brunette hair though)
Mil has to be played by Judy Dench
And Troy Tipton could be played as Marlon Wayans
Thank you Emily for joining us here today at From the Shadows!
The Lightning Legacy (Lightning Witch #2) by Emily Cyr.
When Delaney Hagen died, she really thought she would stay dead. Her whole reality was shattered when she learned of a prophecy that foretold not only of her death, but that she, a lightning Witch, would rise as a werewolf. She is being held against her will by Mitch, the werewolf who killed her. He is hell bent on using her in every way. She must get away from him and rescue the love of her life, Reid. But, with every passing moment she is slowly breaking.
Reid Jamison saw the woman he loved die and there was nothing he could do to stop it. Now, he’s sitting in a prison owned by Mitch, the monster who killed her. Reid must find a way not only to get out, but to save Delaney. He has little time to get to her.
Both Delaney and Reid must get to one another before it’s too late. Not only are they facing the challenges of Mitch, but there is a new pressing threat from the Coven of Witches. Will everything come together in time or will it fall apart?
