For Writer Wednesday, we have author Brenda Pandos once again visiting. The first book of her Talisman Series, The Emerald Talisman, is now available on audiobook, so she’s celebrating its release with a tour.
Brenda’s here to talk about our time together last week, which was a blast. But first, a little about Brenda and The Emerald Talisman.
When the beguiling Nicholas uses his superhuman strength to rescue Julia from the edge of a cliff before she’s devoured by a bloodthirsty stalker, Julia is suddenly thrust into an underground world where people and animals are often one and the same. Fellow high school students disappear and only Julia and Nicholas know the truth. While Nicholas, a vampire hunter, is out stopping the ever-growing coven, an old friend entices Julia to join him on the dark side and a psychic tells Julia she alone is the key to stopping the madness, problem is it’ll require Nicholas’ life.
When thinking about this post, I joked with Kristie about the dreaded “My Summer Vacation” assignment in school. Funny how time and a career change would change this desire.
My crazy journey started Tuesday evening with a red-eye from California to Florida so I could maximize my time with my dear friends. From there, we drove down through the Everglades (in a convertible) on a 5-hour journey to our destination. My brain was a little toasty by the time we arrived from the lack of sleep, but our adorable condo accommodations on the water were absolutely incredible and worth the trip. That evening, we ventured out to Ziggie and Mad Dog’s for dinner where we dined on salmon, lobster, scallops, and truffle mac and cheese which was to die for.
The next day we lazed about (mostly by the pool) wore out from the travel the day prior. Can I say how awesome it is to do NOTHING for once? Dinner was another tasty adventure where I had the best mahi mahi fish tacos I’ve ever had.
