Edged Blade Blog Tour - J.C. Daniels



Order: Amazon | BN | iBooks

In the year since her life was torn apart, Kit Colbana has slowly rebuilt herself. There’s a promise of hope in the relationship with the alpha of the local shapeshifters and she no longer comes screaming into wakefulness. Life’s not perfect but then again, when was it ever?

(No ano desde que sua vida se despedaçou, Kit Colbana vagarosamente se reconstruiu. Há a promessa de esperança no relacionamento com o alfa dos shapshifters local e ela não acorda mais gritando. A vida não é perfeita, mas também, quando foi?)

When her best friend Justin comes to her for help, there’s little question as to what her answer will be. Witches are disappearing and Justin won’t rest until he has answers. Soon, they learn that it’s not just witches who’ve gone missing, but vampires and shifters, too.

(Quando seu melhor amigo Justin vem pedir sua ajuda, há pouca dúvida sobre qual será sua resposta. Bruxas estão desaparecendo e Justin não descansará até conseguir respostas. Logo, eles descobrem que não são só as bruxas que estão sumindo, mas vampiros e shifters também)

Unlikely alliances are forged as Kit and Justin found themselves drawn into a twisted web of lies and betrayal. As the clock counts down and the culprit behind recent disappearances is revealed, those Kit loves the most become the target of somebody who will kill to protect an ugly secret.

(Alianças improváveis são forjadas enquanto Kit e Justin se veem atraídos à uma teia de mentiras e traições. Conforme o relógio vai girando e o culpado atrás dos recentes desaparecimentos é revelado, aqueles que Kit mais ama se tornam o alvo de alguém que matará para proteger um terrível segredo.)

About JC:





J.C. Daniels is the alter ego of author Shiloh Walker and was created basically because Shiloh writes like a hyperactive bunny and an intervention was necessary.  J.C. is the intervention.  The name… J.C. Daniels is a play off of the three people who pretty much run Shiloh’s life.

(J.C. Daniels é alter ego da autora Shiloh Walker e foi criada basicamente porque Shiloh escreve como um coelho hiperativo e uma intervenção era necessária. J.C. é a intervenção. O nome... J.C. Daniels é um jogo com as três pessoas que regem a vida de Shiloh.)

Fascinating Secondaries


One of the things I love the most about writing the Kit Colbana books—other than the fact that writing Kit is just plain fun—is all the fun side characters.

There’s Damon, who is not the typical romance hero. He’s a fricking ass sometimes and frankly, although I’d throttle him in real life, it’s fun to write somebody who is that different from my typical characters.

There’s Colleen, who a few years older than Kit and like her big older sister—I never had an older sister. Well, I didn’t have sisters at all, but if I did, I’d want a sister like Colleen. She seems much older than Kit, but she’s not. Colleen is roughly my age—thirty-eight. She had a baby when she was and lost that child, which is going to add to her maturity, plus, she’s also a healer, another thing that will make her seem more nurturing. All of these things make it easy for her to be whatever it is Kit needs her to be—and sometimes, that requires her to be suck it up and get her act together.

There’s Doyle…okay, I love Doyle. If Colleen is like a sister, then Doyle is like the annoying younger brother she didn’t know she wanted. She protective of him, even though the kid is strong enough to tear phonebooks apart with his bare hands. He’s equally protective of her and the two of them learn from each other all the time.

There’s Justin. And if I had to pick a favorite, it’s him. Aside from Kit.

Because he’s a total smart-ass. The poor guy. He’s shit-faced in love with Kit, and he doesn’t have a chance with her, not anymore. But he’s still determined to be there for her and he’s determine see things through…and he’s determined to annoy Damon, come hell or high water. I gotta admire that.

If you’ve read the books, which secondary character is your favorite?

[Secundários fascinantes...

Uma das coisas que mais gosto quando escrevo os livros de Kit Colbana – além do fato de que escrever sobre Kit é sempre divertido – são os personagens secundários divetidos.

Tem Damon, que não é o típico herói de romance. Ele é um pé no saco às vezes e francamente, apesar de eu o socaria na vida real, é divertido escrever alguém tão diferente dos meus típicos personagens.

Há Coleen, que é alguns anos mais velha que Kit e como uma irmã mais velha – eu nunca tive uma irmã mais velha. Bom eu não tenho irmãs, mas se tivesse queria uma como Coleen. Ela parece muito mais velha do que Kit, mas não é. Coleen tem mais ou menos minha idade – 38. Ela teve um filho e perdeu a criança, o que trouxe maturidade, além disso é uma curandeira, algo que a faz mais carinhosa. Todas essas coisas faz com que seja mais fácil para ela estar onde Kit precisa que ela esteja – e às vezes, isso faz com que ela aguente tudo e se mantenha firme.

Há Doyle... tá, eu amo o Doyle. Se Coleen é como uma irmã, então Doyle é o chato do caçulinha que ela não sabia que queria. Ela o protege apesar de o garoto conseguir rasgar uma lista telefônica com as mãos. Ele é igualmente protetor dela, e os dois aprendem um com o outro o tempo todo.

Tem o Justin. E se eu tivesse que nomear um favorito seria ele. Fora a Kit.

Porque ele é um espertalhão. Pobrezinho. Ele é totalmente apaixonado por Kit e não tem chance alguma com ela, não mais. Mas ele está determinado a estar lá por ela, e determinado a ajudá-la.... e está determinado a perturbar Damon custe o que custar. Tenho de admirar isso.

Se você já leu os livros, qual é seu personagem secundário favorito?]

I looked at the clock. I’d gotten three of the five hours I needed in order to recover from the job from hell.
“Have you been in town long?” I asked conversationally.
“Yep. Got back two days ago.”
Justin’s been in and out of the area for the past few months. We work together when he’s here—sometimes—but he’s been gone a lot. I think he’s searching down leads and info on the hospital—a.k.a. prison—where he’d once been told he’d go if he didn’t be a good little soldier and fight the good fight.
It’s not much of a hospital.
It’s the human version of the roach motel for us—we go in; we don’t come out.
I’d ask him later if he’d learned anything. He’d beat around the bush. We had a rhythm. But for now… Shoving my hair back, I pinned him with a direct look. “Have you paid any attention to the media lately?”
“Yeah.” He twisted his dreads back into a long, heavy knot, leaving his too-pretty face unframed. “Some sick schmuck was actually acting out some of those old horror movies. Been at it for years, sounds like. He’s done…son of a bitch.” He planted his hands on his hips and stared at me. “That was you.”
I gave him a tight smile. “I haven’t slept in three days.”
“How did you do it?”
“Nova.” I shrugged. “He knew who the guy had picked out for this year and he called me.”
Nova was a psychic—and psychotic with it. I’d once accepted a job to kill him, only to discover the guy who needed to die was the one who’d ordered the hit on him. So that’s what I’d done. Assassin isn’t one of the jobs I advertise, but I can, and have, killed.
The man I’d killed last night was a man who’d needed to die in the worst way.
He was also human, so if I was ever discovered, I had a one-way ticket to the chopping block—any NH discovered to have murdered a human gets the guillotine, assuming the non-human community doesn’t deal with the offender on their own. Losing the head is the surest way to kill any NH—and it’s bloody and spectacular. I think that’s why humans do it. We have teeth and claws and magic and they have giant silver blades.
“He was human,” Justin said, echoing my thoughts.
“Only on the outside.” I shrugged. “He was a monster, through and through.” Smiling thinly, I added, “The media is hailing his suicide as an act of cowardice. No doubt the victim who’d somehow escaped would have been able to identify him.”
“She says an angel saved her.” Justin’s eyes gleamed now. “You got wings I can’t see, Kit?”
I flipped him off.
