An interview with Levi, Reece and Harrison

The characters of the Ancient Guardians series were recently interviewed for a blog tour. This is the first time that Levi, Reece and Harrison have been interviewed. If you missed it on the blog tour, it’s now here for your enjoyment.

Interview

An interview with Reece, Levi and Harrison.

As I sit in this exquisite palace across from the three main characters in the Ancient Guardians Series, I struggle to maintain my focus. Fortunately, after reading the first two books in the series, I jotted questions down prior to entering the fascinating realm of Pemdas. The author does an excellent job of describing the glowing foliage at night, the magnificent palace; but even at that, I learned quickly that I wasn’t prepared for the beauty this world possessed.

I took my seat on a ivory, Victorian style chaise and was immediately offered a hot cup of tea from the palace servants. WOW, the explosive flavors of this tea are indescribable and definitely a flavor I will always crave long after this visit to Pasidian Palace.

As I sat, fidgeting with my papers, I hear a soft laugh coming from the chair to my right. Harrison. I glanced at him and instantly his piercing blue eyes, flawless features having me blushing. After learning of his personality, I knew immediately he was enjoying my embarrassment. He draped an arm over the back of his chair, crossed a leg and nodded toward my papers.

“It appears that a glass of wine might help clear your thoughts,” he started with a knowing grin, “The tea seems to have you a bit frazzled.”

I snapped out of my daze and before I could say anything, Reece spoke up, “Don’t listen to him. I was a wreck when I first was taken into this dimension,” she smiled reassuringly at me, “It takes a while to absorb everything.”

My thoughts were clear now, and my first question was for Reece. I smiled in return, “Thank you, all of this is way too much to take in and I’ve even read everything you’ve gone through. I personally wondered how you could manage? How you just could lose any thoughts of your life on Earth and your medical career and trade it for a life in this world. It’s somewhat clear now. Was it easy for you to adjust?”

Reece smiled, “Not necessarily,” she squeezed Levi’s hand, which he immediately responded with a loving smile in return. “I was a wreck, at first I’m dealing with some type of paranormal vision of my Dad visiting me, and then these guys,” she arched an eyebrow at Harrison, “start following me everywhere. The next thing I know, I’m flying down a road with Harrison driving like a maniac and then we’re in Pemdas. I needed answers and it was so frustrating that it took them so long to give them to me.” She glanced up at Levi, “I understand why they did now, I definitely would have never made it to the palace after the Emperor Navarre told me about my genealogy.” She glanced out of the window, “I nearly broke down into hysterics—”

“Ha!” Harrison coughed out a laugh, “Your expression showed nothing but a pale face and it was obvious you were going to run screaming out of the room at any moment.”

I softly laughed as Reece returned Harrison’s humored expression with a simple roll of her eyes. “I’m glad I could amuse you. Fortunately, Levi offered me to get out for fresh air before I could go screaming through the palace.”

I brought my attention to Levi, he had been extremely formal and quiet throughout most of the exchange. I will admit, it is difficult to be in his presence. As Reece explains numerous times, his vivid blue eyes, highlighted by his dark hair and flawless features, will having your heart beating a little rapidly too. Trying to be respectful and not gawk over this man that is in love with Reece and she with him, I simply grin and not allow his piercing eyes to hold mine hostage.

“It was clear that you had feelings for Reece at the time you guarded her on Earth, how did it feel to watch her go through the many emotions she did from the moment she encountered you in the airport, until you brought her safely into your world.”

Levi’s expression grew somber, “It was not an easy task for me. After the events on the airplane and nearly losing Reece to the Ciatron due to that event that our commander, Samuel, ordered us to take her to Pemdas then.”

Reece glanced up at Levi as if this were news to her.

He went on, “I argued with Samuel, as much as I desperately wanted her in our world, not only for her protection, but,” his cheeks slightly colored, “for selfish reasons as well. I longed for the day that I could interact with Reece, to know her better and for her to have an opportunity to know me. However, those were mainly selfish reasons, I knew that if we took Reece from Earth and into our dimension, her entire life would change and I greatly feared the effects that would have on her. So I demanded Samuel give us more time to guard her without taking her then. There were no other options after the Ciatron became more interested in her and were planning at all costs to take her into their world in order to see if she was the descendant of Paul Xylander. That’s when we had no other option.”

“How did I not see any of this?” Harrison blurted out in annoyance.

“It could possibly be the fact that your eyes and attention are always drawn to other women in any room we’re in.” Levi retorted with a laugh.

Harrison shrugged, “True.”

We all laughed in unison.

“Some believe all of this to be too unrealistic, too perfect, and the way Reece accepted these changes in her life unbelievable. Some have criticized you, Reece, for ‘gushing’ over Levi while being a Medical student. Such a woman with a mature mindset would not react in such a way.”

This forced a laugh out of Harrison, a stern, yet concerned gaze from Levi and a look of confusion playing on Reece’s face. Instantly, her features softened. “Let them think what they want. Yes, I was determined to be a Pediatrician, I had what I believed the perfect life mapped out for myself. It wasn’t until I was brought here that I realized I was using all of this to fill a void I didn’t have,” she glanced up at Levi, “Levi.” She simply stated. “Believe me, I had no plans to fall in love with him, but when I started to see everything so differently, because of him. It was like everything faded away, I hardly felt stressed out, I felt complete. I didn’t want to go back to the high paced life on Earth. I wanted to be here. It’s hard to explain. But, my life wasn’t just turned upside down when I was brought to Pemdas. It started when I lost my dad. I had to do something. I was young and was at a make or break point in my life. So I chose the most demanding profession that I could conquer, not realizing that was the answer to grieving my dad’s death.”

“I am so sorry for your loss.”

Reece smiled in response, “Thank you, I appreciate that. I may have lost my father, but in some strange way, I gained the world in return by having Levi’s love.

“Gained the world of Pemdas that is,” Harrison spoke out, “Let’s weigh this for a moment, Reece having a future as Doctor or Reece having a future as the next Empress of an entire world?”

“Harrison!” Reece sighed.

“Think about it? How could anyone question that?”

It was getting late and I knew the servants would announce dinner soon. I saved one last question for Harrison, “It is no secret that you are on a social media site on Earth.”

“What?” Reece said with a laugh.

Harrison sat smugly in his chair, “Yes, it is quite entertaining.”

“Harrison, I will never understand you.” Levi said.

Reece sat up, “What site?”

Harrison crossed his arms, “Facebook.”

Levi rolled his eyes as Reece covered her mouth with both her hands, “Please tell me you aren’t posting pictures of us on it?” she said, still laughing.

“You will never know and not to worry, nothing that I post will put you or anyone at risk.”

Reece glanced up at Levi’s annoyed expression, “The next thing we know he’ll be on a dating site.” She said in a low voice, forcing Levi to laugh out loud.

“Nice one, Reece.” Harrison returned. “However, it is quite obvious I have no need for such things.”

The room grew silent and I could tell there was something more that they knew then they were telling me. Before I could ask, a servant entered the room and announced dinner.

We all stood at once. Levi instantly crossed the room, and thanked me for my time. Reece offered an endearing hug, thanking me as well. Harrison sauntered across the room and offered his arm, “You must be famished, allow me you to escort you to dinner before your return to Earth.

And that was it. Reece helped me get through dinner without making a fool of myself and before I knew it, I was on my way back to Earth. I have to admit, I wish I never had left. Yes, I want to live in Pemdas and I am so thankful that S.L. Morgan gave me this opportunity to visit Pemdas. I know she would have interviewed the characters herself, but, she is buried in edits with her third book and I was the closest one she could reach out to.

It was definitely a privilege.

I am against Author and Reviewer bullying!

 AuthorBullying (2)

There is much to be posted on this, for now, I want to inform potential reader’s that I will NEVER comment on their reviews be them good or bad. If a reader were to contact me personally through email, my website or facebook, I am always happy to discuss with them about their personal opinions about any of my books.

Recently, I discovered another author attacking a reader that had passion for one of my books and wrote their personal opinion to a reviewer that a had an opposite opinion of the book than theirs. This happens very often. Reviewers and readers will protect that which they are passionate about. Sadly, this misinformed ‘author’ as they referred to themselves, attacked a reader/reviewer of the Ancient Guardians series, thinking this reviewer was me, the author. After attacking this reviewer and insulting the book and me as the author in defense of this negative review, I had to step in.

Sadly, many authors and reviewers are under attack. Authors will attack a reviewer for not liking their work and reviewers will mob together and attack an author threatening their favorite author’s work. I am not making this up.

Check out this site and what authors are dealing with. Stop the Bullys

Why am I even posting this? Because so many are victim to this. Authors and reviewers on any site. As a potential reader, allow me to warn you, if you let reviews decide whether or not a book is for you. Positive reviews: Do they give you enough feedback that goes beyond the blurb to make you interested? Negative Reviews: Do they go beyond their personal critique and explain enough to show you they have even read the book, to help you decide whether you agree with them or not.

Sadly, the reading world is becoming corrupt and falsely misleading readers away from a book they may absolutely have loved. Please be vigilant if you choose to read reviews.

Back to the point of me posting this (And possibly risking 1-star reviews for doing so) I will NEVER comment on a review be them good or bad. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. What one may hate, another will love. So with this said, I must make reader’s aware of the malicious attack on a reviewer expressing their opinion on a negative review on my book. This “Author” was wise to NOT use a name to link herself to her books as this author, attacked and bullied a reader under the false assumption it was me. Here is the exchange and my response after I was highly embarrassed and devastated for the reviewer who went under attack.

Amazon Customer says:

Not really sure how old your copy is; but this book has been reformatted and republished! There is not one error, and believe me, I can not read a book unless it is fluid! Maybe you should do yourself a favor and download the newest version. I would never wish on my greatest enemy, to NOT have the privilege of visiting PEMDAS and meet Reese, Harrison and Levi! READERS BEWARE….. You WILL NOT regret reading this book! If you are into the possibilities of other dimensions within the universe, you will want to read this MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING SERIES! (*if it was so horribly written, with tons of grammar and punctuation errors, how has it won so many awards?) Just saying!

P. Smith says:

I downloaded it tonight. Don’t know how I can get a more recent version than that. As to how it can win awards with atrocious grammar and punctuation, all I can say is it may not bother some readers or award-givers.

Amazon Customer says:

I find it fascinating that after this book as been out for sooo long, that all of a sudden there are people mentioning its grammar and editing???? Well, I’m glad for one, that there are smart people out there to not believe these bad reviews for nothing more than an author competing against this author! I’ll feel good knowing that this book has a 4.5 rating with an astounding 85 AND CLIMBING readers!!! You can try to degrade this book; but it WILL be on the best sellers list surpassing yours everyday!!! I won’t even mention that your calling editors and publishers that read this book and gave it the awards inept or incompetent… what are your credentials??


THE ATTACK ON THE READER by another Author
In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2014 10:01:10 PM PST
I have to reply to this. As an author, your reaction and appalling lack of courtesy to your readers, is mind blowing. Rather than go on the defensive on this., a better reply would be:

“I’m sorry your issue had grammatical errors. It’s possible that you downloaded an earlier edition that wasn’t properly edited. Amazon does mix things up from time to time and mistakes happen. I will look in to it and in the meantime hope you can muddle through enough to look at the book itself as a story. Or better yet, send me your email and I shall forward you a corrected copy.”

That’s how you deal with people who find errors. NOT by belittling them, implying they aren’t smart and asking for a their credentials.

Because of these reponses of yours to this reader and others I’ve seen from you, I shall not bother to download the book at all. Oh, BTW, 85 readers is not exactly taking the Internet by storm. Neither is the current 118. Feel free to let me know when you get a couple of thousand.

Mikisunshine,

I, S.L. Morgan, ‘the author’ have not commented on this string until now. I am unsure why you are attacking a reader that is defending the book with their personal opinion. Please understand that I am very aware of author etiquette while receiving positive or negative reviews. I will not respond to them at all, unless they are reviewing the book with inaccurate details and therein misleading readers into buying a book that does not have content they are speaking of.
All readers are subject to their own opinion and I actually used this review and other reviews to hire another editor and have the book re-copy edited. I will always respect the reviews of Readers be them positive or negative.
What you are referring to is ‘Author Bullying’ and I will never bully a reader over their opinions of any book I write. (Obviously, I did not comment on this until now, in order to defend this reviewer and my name as the author against your false accusations.) I believe that if you are in fact an author, you would apologize to this reader for attacking them and insulting them, believing they were the author.

I am the Author of this work and this is my reply. Please do not attack reader’s that are voicing their opinion over reviews assuming that they are the author.

Have a wonderful day and I am very grateful I came across this string today or my readers would have been misled by your comments believing this reviewer was in fact, me.
Sincerely,
S.L. Morgan
Author of the Ancient Guardians Series.

Please, let’s stop the bullying. It hurts readers, reviewers and authors.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

image

My Grandpa John Woodall could hardly speak of this war that the United States entered into after the attack on Pearl Harbor! Let us never forget the sacrifices, the bravery and the honor of those who served after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Never forget the lives lost during the attack and the call of action that was declared that those men did not die in vain. God Bless our brave soldiers!

****Eisenhower, commander of allied troops in Europe, delivered this message to allied forces just before they embarked on the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944:
“Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you.”****

Ancient Guardians: Book 3

Another sneak peek!!!!

image

Levi helped Reece onto Arrow, and watched the horse willfully give her control over him. Control that despite his greatest efforts while he worked with the young, guardian horse, Levi struggled to achieve.

Reece laughed softly as Levi studied Arrow’s response to her as his master. Before he turned to Areion, Levi took Arrow’s halter with both hands and studied the horse’s brilliant golden eyes.

Arrow let out a grunt and tried to jerk his head free from Levi’s grips. Levi ignored his response, and continued to stare into Arrow’s eyes. What do you sense in her, boy? As soon as the question absently entered Levi’s mind, Arrow nudged Levi in his chest and pawed the ground with his strong,  massive hoof.
At this time,, Levi smiled knowingly. He mentally questioned Arrow. “There is something unique about her, isn’t there? Something more—”

Arrow jerked his head back, prompting Levi to let his halter loose. Levi laughed in astonishment. He spoke to the guardian horse again through is mind; “You may be able to read into my mind, young friend—I only wish I could read into yours…”

Coming soon!!!!!
