Interview with Tez from Heaven's Core

Today I would like to welcome Erika Lindsen, the author of Heaven's Core, and the star of Heaven's Core, Tez. Take it away, Erika!


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on the outside world? Away from civilaztion? Well today I am interviewing the star of my new release Heaven’s Core. Please welcome Tez!

T: Thanks, Erika.

E: So, first things first, aliens have come to Earth. What was your initial reaction to that?

T: I was only nine when they came, but like any kid, I was curious. I world seemed to stop moving while the spaceships landed. I wondered if they would be friendly or if they wanted to make slaves of us.

E: And, ten years later, humans and aliens are at peace, working together to cure diseases and make Earth the best it can be.

T: I guess you can say that.

E: Well, what are your feelings about that?

T: I’m a Rebel and Rebels don’t believe in alien to human interaction.

E: So you want them to leave?

T: Can we change the subject?

E: Sure. Now in the book you meet Hannibal. Why, when he was on the run and bleeding, did you offer to help a known Rebel killer?

T: I like to help anyone. He was injured.

E: Plus, He’s kind of cute?

T: *Blushes*

E: One last question then I’ll let you get back to your duties. Are you in love?

T: I’d hope you’d want your readers to find out by, well, reading.

E: Very true. Thank you, Tez, for stopping by with me. And to Miss Bayliss’ readers, by commenting you will be entered into the contest to win a print copy of Heaven’s Core, plus some other really cool grand prizes.


Go check it out!

When lives are decided by the end of the blade, what happens when it’s forever sheathed?

Ten years ago, aliens made contact with Earth, offering technology and cures for diseases in exchange for water. The world watched as peace was made, seventy billion miles brought together.

But not all felt this union was a good thing. On both alien and human sides, Rebels opposed the treaty and some would do anything to break up this intergalactic bond. Earth had an answer to those who threatened it: the Core, a group of mercenaries that dealt with Rebels by any means necessary.

As a cyborg and member of the Core for three years, Hannibal is good at what he does. But the bodies he’s piled up are starting to weigh heavily on his shoulders and he knows what the Core does isn’t justice, but murder.

Hannibal escapes the Core headquarters in search of his own peace. While on the run, he’s injured but is taken in by a Tez. Problem is, she is beautiful, vivacious, and a Rebel, his sworn enemy. Hannibal’s training has taught him to kill her on sight. He finds his duties get much harder with each passing day. But if he doesn’t do the job, there’s a long list of colleagues that will.

Cover Reveal for Demon's Veil by Brandice Snowden

Hi Everyone! Today, I'm happy to share with you a friend and fellow Curiosity Quill's author, Brandice Snowden's cover for Demon's Veil, releasing on July 15th.

Powerful veils hold Earth apart from realms mortals believe are merely tales of myth and legend. They are opening again, leaving humans vulnerable, and the monsters ready to strike.

Marie Leveau prefers to remain alone and anonymous, for she knows what goes bump in the night, and sacrificing others isn't part of her personality. But life isn’t always about getting what you want.

Contracted by The Organization, a shadow government agency, Marie is assigned a new Special Ops team, one she must introduce via Paranormal 101 to the very monsters they didn’t believe existed. Marie and her team are sent to Asia in search of an ancient relic, leading them into the jungle and tests of a fragile new bond. Despite the initial distrust, and an unholy battle with a demon-god, the team survives, their lives forever changed and woven into an unbreakable tapestry.

Returning home, the new friends sense the very people responsible for their safety are willing to sacrifice them all in the name of power.

They learn of a prophecy, and The Paladin, the one person able to close the veils and keep the mortals safe.

With few clues, the team must unravel the prophecy and figure out how to close the veils. Or the monsters will use Earth as ground zero, innocents be damned.

Adult Urban Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older.
