Authors Around the World

In honor of the Olympics, fifteen bloggers in six countries are sharing author interviews and giving away great stuff. More information below!

Welcome author Patricia Lynne to my blog for the AUTHORS AROUND THE WORLD Kindle Fire Giveaway Blog Tour!

Patricia Lynne, what title are you highlighting in this blog hop?
Being Human

For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.

Only surviving isn’t that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.

The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny’s help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He’ll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.

Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, Tommy learns there’s more to life than simple survival. He’ll discover being human doesn’t mean being a human.
