Our races are sworn enemies of each other…

From MACTUS, 2nd Book in The Light-Bearer Series

tumblr_m5dzodppYc1r08eawo1_500“Our races are sworn enemies of each other. The Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers are ancient rivals. However, Tab and I have a special relationship. We are not enemies. We are connected by love.” Charmeine explained to Shane.

Tabbruis looked at her with surprise and his lips curled with a smile.

Charmeine hung her head thinking maybe she shouldn’t have said it, but it was how she felt. She turned and gazed in his eyes. “Yes, I said love and meant it, Tab.”

Then Tabbruis looked at Shane and pulled a hand away. His heart became heavy with what he was about to say. “It is true. My race is called Blood-Hunters or Elders. The Elders are run by an Elder Council. They have a prison secured by Elder Temple Guards. We are supposed to track, hunt and kill Light-Bearers. They are the only threat we have on Earth. Since Charleen is a Light-Bearer, she was probably going to be captured and sent to the Elder Temple to be put to death on the Altar of Judgment.”

Charmeine realized what danger she had been in. Her body shuttered thinking about it.

Shane’s mouth hung open in disbelief.

“Furthermore, the Elder Council monitors and polices the Blood-Hunters to make sure they do not cross the line with Humans. It is a horrible thing. I loathe this war between our races. However, I cannot and will not hurt her. I want to protect and love her always.” He kissed her hand again.

Tabbruis hung his head in disgust. “I have no words to tell you how this angers me. To be with her is to be condemned by my race, the Blood-Hunters.” He looked at her with pure love in his eyes, “But it seems little price to pay to love her.”

She welled in tears. They fell across her checks as he swept them away.

Tabbruis grabbed her sparking hand and cupped it close to his heart.

“I knew you two were crazy for each other, but I had no idea.” Shane put his head in his hands. “I guess I believe you. But Man, this is a trip. In all the years I have known Char, she has never lied to me. I’m shocked. This is really out there.” He ran his hand over his half-shaven beard and sighed, “But nothing else can explain your blood loss and the way you are healed today, Tab.”

Shane is shocked!

What would you say if your best friend said they were a Supernatural?

I’m awed because Tabbruis and Charmeine know they can be put to death for loving each other.

Forbidden Love…

Lots of love, Emily


Help!

helping-hand_gscsqoWhen I ask for help, it always comes with anxiety and even distress in some cases.

I’m not talking about help like asking hubby to take out the trash or asking for donations to a charity for a 5K walk/run.

Seditious Book Cover by Emily GuidoNo, the help I’m talking about is personal.

It is about my passion, my little shop in my brain.

I need to promote the pre-sale of Seditious my fourth book in The Light-Bearer Series.

So I have asked everyone I could think of to share Seditious.

I could hire a blog tour, but they are pricey.

tumblr_lnfo31Nfsj1qdvjx6Some friends that I contacted immediately said, YES!  

Their responses made my heart light and was warmed by their encouragement.

UJaB7bMSome friends did not answer.

Which is probably meant to say, no.

It made me wonder.

Like lightning, I realized that . . .

The help I am asking for has to matter to the person I asked.

That’s what eluded me during my sleepless night.

When I ask hubby to take out the trash, he does it, because he knows he’s a part of the family unit. Doing chores is part of being in a family.

When I ask for a donation for a 5K, that person does it with the hope a cure will be found.

So, what I have found is that my asking for help has to matter to you!

I will gladly feature your book or blog. This goes for everyone . . . even if you help me or not! Everyone is welcome. That’s what Pay it Forward Friday is for, to give to you some recognition for your passion!

beyouwings-1It’s sort of cool because it’s Karma.

And if you know me at all, I am a strong believer in Karma.

My mother used to say, “I cast a couple pieces of bread on the water and the waves bring me back a ham sandwich.”

Obviously, she wasn’t a philosopher, but she believed we are all dependent on the grace we give to each other!

We may not know it yet, but she was right. Everyone is equal.

Lots of love, Emily

Enjoy the video, one of my favs!
