Wander Dust Blog Tour!

Morning Kindle-ites!

I know all of you are expecting a Freebie alert today, but there has been a little change in plans. Today I’ve been asked to host a spot on the very talented Ms. Michelle Warren’s “Wander Dust” blog tour and I just couldn’t say no. (Especially since I practically begged her for a copy to read for myself) So… Today: lovely prizes and a chance to learn more about Michelle. Tomorrow: back to normal (aka free books) Happy Reading! —Misty

P.S. I know several of you are wondering why I didn’t review this book as well as post about the give-a-away (since that’s what I normally do) but in the effort of not making this post longer than the Mississippi river I’ve decided to post the review separately NEXT week. Cheers!



About The Book


Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish.

The Lady in Black burns Sera’s memories.

Unexplainable Premonitions catapult her to other cities.

The Grungy Gang wants to kill her.

And a beautiful, mysterious boy stalks her.

But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she is immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.

3 Questions With Michelle


Q:  The lead character of Wander Dust’s name is Seraphina Parrish. To me…this screams biblical inspiration ( “Seraphine was the name of a 13th-century Italian saint who make clothes for the poor.) is there any weight behind my assumption, or was this completely random and you actually did something simple like Google “Cool Names!”

A:  The idea for the names of the characters really just popped into my head. It’s like they were already decided for me. I never even questioned if Seraphina was a good name or not, I just went with it. I did do some research on the name Seraphina as I was brainstorming for the book, and I did entwine some historical aspects into the story line. The name ended up working perfectly with the theme. So, I think it was meant to be.


Q:  I love the mystery behind secret societies. Did you do any research for this aspect of the book?

A:  I am a little bit of a history nerd, especially when it comes to secret societies in the US. If I have time to watch TV and my husband gives me the remote (which is rare), I’ll immediately flip to either the History or Discovery channel. I’ve probably watched every show ever made about the Masons. The secret society in my book is completely fictional, but I did weave symbols, secrets, underground lairs, and legends into the story.


Q:  Your bio states that you love to travel.  To date… where is your favorite place to visit?

A:  My favorite US city is Chicago. For this reason, I used it as a backdrop for my book. I also love traveling abroad. My favorite city abroad is Rome, Italy. Rome was the first place I ever traveled to out of the states, so it has a special place in my heart.  I’ve been to almost every city I wrote about in the book.

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
