Mapping My Readers!

OK, so I got this idea from another authors blog and thought – WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

worldmap-bigger-size

I’ve decided to start a little geography project with my kids and I could really use your help. Using a world map, my kids and I, are going to attempt to map out where my readers are. This will include blog followers as well as all you amazing people who have purchased a copy of one or more of my books. So, that means I need to know where you are!

How are we going to do this?

WITH YOUR HELP

As well as a bit of color coding (one color for blog readers, one color for book readers, and one color for those of you that do both)! Or maybe for the book readers I’ll have one color for each book… yeah, I don’t have it all figured out yet – its still a plan in progress.

In the comments section below this blog, please tell me if you follow my blog and/or have read one of my books or added it to your “to read” list. Then let me know where you live (City/State/Country – Or however much you are comfortable giving).

Want to have even more fun? If you are a book reader please post a photo of yourself holding a copy of my book (paperback or eBook) so the cover is showing in the photo! You can post it in the comments below, on twitter tagging me @Nina_Soden, or on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/BloodAngelSeries (Facebook search: Nina Soden – Author)

I’d like to know just where my readers are and how far my reach has gone. This is my attempt to find out from all of you, while my numbers are still small. I appreciate your help on this project as do my lovely children!

Happy Reading 🙂

Set in a futuristic Dystopian where society is governed by a council of vampires and lycanthropes, selection students are sheltered and raised in a deceptively Utopian world. Strict rules are imposed to control population growth, education, and even personal interactions with other members of the sector, all in the name of safety.

When ‘A’ comes of age she, like all youth throughout Sector C, and her selection classmates aren’t sent out into the world to find jobs, make money and lead happy carefree lives. They are forced to endure the rigorous physical and mental testing of Selection Week before choosing their destiny or being forced into a fate far worse. Those that make it out alive are announced as sector residence, given a position within the society, and allotted all the privileges of their chosen “culture.” However, when your only choices are vampirism, lycanthropy, breeder, blood donor, or banishment to the Wastelands, what choice do you really have?

Suspenseful, intense, passionate, and awash in paranormal delights, SECTOR C ~ THE CHOSEN captures the enchantment and mysteries of the supernatural world and the power of friendship.

Revenge by Nina Soden

WOW… this review made my day.

Jonas Lee

Rating Overview

Writing: ★★★★ 1/2
Story: ★★★★ 1/2
Characters: ★★★★★
Cover: ★★★★ 1/2

Overall: ★★★★★ (4.625)

 This book was given to me as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This third (final?) installment of the Blood Angel series is once again looking at the transformation of Alee (Aleerah), the only living dhampir. It continues after her transition back into high school, learning the ropes of a vampire, the nature of being a witch, the betrayal of the Underground and the love dichotomy she finds herself in.

The Critical Points:

Writing:

Nina’s writing has progressively improved throughout the series and by this point, she has started to master the craft. Weaving in the imagery and emotions of her characters. There were some misspellings here and there, giving the teeny ding on the writing alone.

Story:

This story starts off on the fast track and very rarely slows…

I am so excited to announce that I have started a

NEW ADVENTURE

adventure road sign

As many of you already know, I published the final installment of the Blood Angels Series at the end of August. But, what you don’t know is that I kicked off September by starting my new series “Title Unknown”.

I started typing the first page on Wednesday September 3rd and have, in only 10 short days, already completed the first 19 chapters. That might not be a lot for some authors, but for me that is huge. I only have a short time each day to write, about an hour, so getting through that much in such a short time is thrilling. I hope to have my first draft completed by the end of the month. After that… EDITS – REWRITES – EDITS – REWRITES – EDITS – REWRITES – etc. until the book is perfect.

I will post a blurb soon – So stay toned.

I can’t wait to share this new story with all of you.

Revenge ~ a Blood Angel novel ~ book 3

by Nina Soden

Life hasn’t been easy for Alee. Having almost died as a young child and then losing both of her parents shortly after her junior year in high school, all she wanted was a normal senior year. Little did she know that with the development of her powers, Atlanta’s founding members had taken notice of her and were watching her closely. And to top things off, an all out war between the lycanthropes and the members of The Underground erupted at the annual Founders’ Celebration, leaving Alee caught in the middle.

Dying in her father’s arms only to awaken in a pool of blood, surrounded by the mutilated corpses of those she loved most, who could blame Alee for what she did next? Wouldn’t you seek REVENGE?

Revenge ~ a Blood Angel novel ~ BOOK 3

Hello anyone and everyone who may or may not be out there somewhere reading this post… So, books 1 and 2 have been written, edited, rewritten, edited again and again and again, and finally published. WOW! It was a long road, but I did it. Two books down and the third yet to come.

That’s right, the Blood Angel series doesn’t end with BEGINNINGS… Nothing ever ends after a beginning, right? Right!

So, what is next in the Blood Angel series? REVENGE! For those of you who have read AWAKEN and BEGINNINGS you might be wondering, Revenge? But, trust me after what Alee had to go through in book 1 and then book 2… someone better be getting a little revenge! For those of you who have not yet read AWAKEN or BEGINNINGS you need to pick-up your copy today and start reading.

So, I begin my journey into REVENGE a little more timid than I did the last two books. Why? Because the last two books just seemed to spill out of me. I think I had more time to write, or maybe less stress in my life – or more I’m not really sure. Anyway, book 3 is in my head and I want it to come out, but for whatever reason… it doesn’t want to come out yet. Instead of sitting at my computer and forcing the words into print, and inevitable turning out a bad product, I’m giving myself a week to rest… de-stress… and focus on other things (work – my real job, family – hubby and kids, home – house work and laundry, and of course summer) just for the next week. Then once I’ve completed my week of solus… I shall write. I plan to try to spend at least 1 hour a night in a quiet room – alone – just writing. Sure, that doesn’t sound like a lot to you avid writers, but for me (a mom who also works full-time) an hour of alone time each night to just write – well, that sounds like heaven and like a true fantasy that will probably never happen.

Recap – My goal is that starting Monday June 17th I will steal 1 hour each night to just think creative thoughts and write.

Wish me luck…

Awaken ~ the Trailer

Okay, film editing is not my thing. But, computers make it so easy these days for crazy non-techy people like me to play around. So, I spent the weekend working with the easy-to-use Microsoft Word editing software and came up with the following trailer for my first novel Awaken. It isn’t crazy award-winning great, but for a first timer I’m pretty happy with it. I hope you will be too. Please post your thoughts and let me know what you like, what you don’t like, and what I can do to make it better…. or at least make the next one better.
