Today we have Lauren Dailey from S. Usher Evans’ book Empath sharing with us the accessories, books and clothes she is lusting after.
Let’s give a warm ABCers welcome to Lauren!
Accessory: Ruby Necklace
In the book, Lauren picks up her own ruby necklace at an antique store as yet another attempt to get over her ex-boyfriend. She can’t wear the old necklace that he gave her without crying, so she purchases a new one. When she’s transported to the village of Rhianu, the gem becomes a lifeline as she wrestles with her new power as an Empath and tries to keep her anxiety and depression at bay.
Book: You’ve Got Dragons
If Lauren were to have read this book when she first arrived in Rhianu, and understood that asking for help is not as scary as living in silence with your fears, she might have been able to get back home sooner.
But since she’s definitely NOT thinking about the dragon that definitely ISN’T the voice in her mind and definitely DOESN’T want to eat her, she totally doesn’t need to read that book.
When Lauren realizes that she’s stuck in a fantasy world, all she wants are a good pair of sweatpants instead of the wool and cotton dress she’s provided.
I think we all would, Lauren. I think we all would.
About the book
Lauren Dailey is in break-up hell.
Stuck between moving on and letting go, she puts on a brave face while crying herself to sleep at night. But when a mysterious voice promises escape from her sadness, she is suddenly transported to a new world. And in this place, the slightest touch pulls her out of her tortured emotions into the mind of another – an empath.
The villagers – sweet Aerona and her mischievous twins, wise Siors, and hunky Cefin – welcome her and the blessings her empath powers bring. But this world is not without its dangers. The Anghenfil, a fire-breathing monster, has haunted the village for decades, and has a taste for empaths. And that mysterious voice promising escape from sadness? It’s sounding more like a whisper tinged with smoke and embers.
Can Lauren keep the monsters in the mountain and in her head at bay? Or will she succumb to the darkness like the empath before her…
S. Usher Evans is an author, blogger, and witty banter aficionado. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she left the sleepy town behind for the fast-paced world of Washington, D.C.. There, she somehow landed jobs with BBC, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic Television before finally settling into a “real job” as an IT consultant. After a quarter life crisis at age 27, she decided consulting was for the birds and rekindled a childhood passion for writing novels. She sold everything she owned and moved back to Pensacola, where she currently resides with her two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit.
Evans is the author of the Razia series and Empath, both published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing.
