Indie Summer Blog Tour: Lucifer Promo & KINDLE FIRE GIVEAWAY!!!

I am so ridiculously happy right now! I was so excited when I found out that I was a part of this tour, and now it's finally here! I'm also extremely honored to be able to kick the tour off on the first day, and I'm even happier that I get to showcase such an amazing book!

Independent authors work so hard to get their novel out there, and too often they get such a bad rap. Not every novel that you see published independently is that way because it's not good enough for a publishing house to pick it up! Most of the time, the author just prefers the independent route because it gives them so much more control over how their book is presented to the world. They get to make all of the decisions, like the cover and the blurb, not some snooty team of publicists that may not see their novel the way they do.

They want their baby to be showcased in the best light possible because a book really is like a child. They've nurtured the story its whole life, whether it was something that was planned for years, or more "spur of the moment." They're not about to hand their own child off to a bunch of strangers who think they know what's best! Sometimes authors would much rather just keep the novel in their own hands in order to protect what they've worked so hard to create.

Speaking of something that took a lot of love and care to create, without any further ado, here is the beautiful, completely author-made, Lucifer!

Lucifer by Annabell Cadiz

Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?

Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an act against their kingdom.

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies, she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush, Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . . and suck out human souls.

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans, more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

Annabell Cadiz was born in the sweltering heat of South Florida. She was raised surrounded by Puerto Rican chefs and band of siblings that weren’t all related to her. A self-proclaimed nerd and book-a-holic (her room does hold much evidence to prove her claims are justifiable), she created TeamNerd Reviews to showcase her EXTREME love for novels. Her debut novel, LUCIFER (SONS OF OLD TRILOGY, #1) was published January 2013.

  1. I am excited about the blog tour. I like what you said about the indie authors. I have a found a lot of authors with awesome books that I would have never found otherwise.

    1. I know, right? Sometimes they get picked up by a publishing houses, sometimes they don't, but that one factor is not the only thing that determines whether or not a book is any good!


  2. This is such a cool way to spread the word about indie authors. If I could go on a vacation anywhere, it would be to Ireland. :)

    1. Ireland seems so beautiful! I've never been there before either, but I'd really like to someday!



Hey guys! We love to hear from you all. Thanks for reading!
