-A [Fikt] shun Week- Day #3 + Giveaway
Oh my!!! See?? Everyone loves you Rachel!!!
Welcome to our third day of sharing our love and appreciation for blogger Rachel @ Fiktshun!
I'm having fun and I'm really really happy that you guys decided to take a chance and take part in on this!
Today I have one very special guest!
He's an author, one whose first book I finished just the other day. An author who, by all purposes managed to break my heart into a million pieces in matter of seconds simply with his writing!
You see, if it weren't for Rachel I wouldn't have taken a chance on this author but I'm so very very glad she reviewed his book and dove right into his second one.
I loved Rachel's review of the first book. She has a way with words and if I am not witness enough...
Let's do this author corroborate what we all already know right?
Welcome to the blog!
You can find him on his,
In case you don't know him, he's the author of "The Protector" series-one I'm enjoying just right now and in which book tour I'll be participating in the future ;)-
***Every once in a while you stumble across someone who you are dying to get to know, even if the reasoning behind the urge eludes you. There’s something in them that just draws you in. Such was the case for me with Rachel from Fiktshun. I stumbled across her blog, and after my first visit there, I knew I had to learn more about her. I was hooked.
It started out with a minor obsession over her website. She takes such pride in it and it shows, but it wasn't only the appearance of the blog that drew me in, or the content, it was the voice. I've talked about this on my own website. Her writing has such a beautiful rhythmic design that I can’t get enough of.
After I found her blog, I sought out her writing more and more, until finally I managed to work up the courage to reach out to her. I had such respect for this person and I’d never spoken to them. I will admit I was nervous. Her writing had both captivated and intimidated me. But, after spending some time talking with her over social media, I learned that she was more than just captivating words; there was an incredible person behind them.
Rachel is one of those people that has that spark, and it comes through in all of the things she does. Her contribution to The Authors Are Rockstars Tour is a perfect example, as is her blog. She invests herself into a project and you can feel the passion she puts into it.
Rachel has been a pillar of support for me in so many ways, and for someone who works a full-time job, and is so committed to sharing her passion of books over multiple blogging platforms (which is a second full-time job sometimes), Rachel has shared something even importance with me: her time.
In a lot of ways, Rachel is inspirational, even though she doesn't realize it. I read what she writes and I strive to improve. To be able to infuse passion in my words that evoke emotions, like hers do with me. I’m forever thankful for everything she’s done for me, and I feel absolutely honored to have been given the chance to know her.***
