Sins of the Lost Blog Tour-Guest Post & GIveaway

SINS OF THE LOST (Grigori Legacy #3)
Publisher: Penguin Group
Pub. Date: October 15, 2013

 From the author of Sins of the Angels and Sins of the Son comes the newest novel in the “electric, thrilling and extremely intelligent” (Ex Libris) Grigori Legacy series.

Heaven and Hell are on the brink of war as Lucifer builds his Nephilim army and waits for his new agenda to become a reality — that of having a Nephilimchild of his own bloodline to lead his forces to cataclysmic victory.

With rumors of the pending war rampant on Earth, Alex fights to save humanity from its own panic –­ leaving little time for her fledgling
relationship with Seth, the man with heavenly origins who has captured her heart. But when Nephilim children begin to disappear, along with Alex’s own vulnerable niece, the inevitable war between Heaven and Hell becomes as personal as sin.

Heaven has its own plans to fight the coming apocalypse, but first it needs Seth back. Asked to betray the man she loves, Alex must turn for help to the soulmate she thought she’d given up — the Archangel Aramael, who may be her last chance to save her family and humanity from the ashes of Lucifer’s Armageddon.


GUEST POST by Linda Poitevin

Meredith, thank you so very much for hosting me here today, and for taking part in the Sins of the Lost blog tour! I loved your list of topic suggestions for today’s post, and I selected the one I thought was most unique: An angel offers to take you anywhere for one day, where would you go and what would you do there?

What an awesome question. First off, am I allowed to specify which angel? Because if so, I would so love to meet my Archangel Michael. As far as tortured heroes go, he really is the ultimate...and I am such a sucker for a tortured hero. Especially ones who dress in black armor and carry a broadsword...and who have incredibly intense, piercing emerald eyes...

Ahem. a little sidetracked there. *blushes*

As for where I’d like to go, I would love to visit the Heaven of my books. The One is an avid gardener, with greenhouses and endless acres of gardens connected by winding paths and trickling streams. I would love to wander amongst her trees, to sit under the arbor in her rose garden, and to listen to the sound of the wind and the water and the utter peace.

Then there are the buildings. Massive stone buildings as old as Heaven itself, lined with wood paneling, dotted with pools of sunshine flowing in from tall, multi-paned windows, and filled with all the knowledge in the universe. Archives containing every moment of history. A library spilling over with ever written word humanity has ever produced. A solidity that is endless and enduring...

I’m not sure how much of it I would be able to take in during one short day, but I would do my best to see as much as I could.

Then’s Heaven, and anything would be possible there, right? 

Linda Poitevin was born and raised in B.C., Canada’s westernmost province. Growing up in an era when writing was “a nice hobby, dear, but what are you going to do for a living?”, Linda worked at a variety of secretarial jobs before applying to be a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Due to an error in measurement, however, she was turned down when she didn’t meet the height requirement of that time. Undeterred, Linda became a civilian member in the force and was a dispatcher for two and a half years, during which time she met her husband, a police officer.

Following their transfer to Ottawa, Linda went on to become a real estate agent and then a human resources consultant before starting a family. She remained a stay-at-home mom, homeschooled her youngest daughter for nine years and, now that she has realized writing can be more than a nice hobby, she continues to live her dream of being a cop vicariously through her characters.

Linda currently lives near Ottawa with her husband, youngest of three daughters, one very large husky/shepherd/Great Dane-cross dog, a cat, two rabbits, and a bearded dragon lizard. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found in her garden or walking her dog along the river or through the woods.

In addition to her books, Linda also does freelance writing and editing.

Information about her services can be found at Linda is a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, Quebec Writers’ Federation, Romance Writers of America, RWA Futuristic Fantasy Paranormal Chapter, and Ottawa Romance Writers’ Association.
