Frost Burn by K.T. Munson and Nichelle Rae (VET, spotight and GIVEAWAY) GFT



by K.T. Munson and Nichelle Rae

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Fire and Frost; no two nations have ever been so divided. Only two bridges across the great River Gora connects them and their long standing hatred. When spring comes early, the Frost Nation looks upon the Fire Nation with suspicion. Soon they will discover that the rising rivers, warmer temperatures, and the earthquakes are all a result of something far more terrifying then each other. When the world seems to turn against them they will only have each other to look to. Can they put their differences aside long enough to fix their planet? They must or face extinction.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Exclusive Excerpt


“What’s in your head, Thea?” Fitzu asked in a warning tone.

“Saving that bridge,” Thea replied and began to blaze her own core, heating up her skin so hot that an orange aura of fire magic lightly haloed her body and the cold rain couldn’t hurt her. The water would evaporate with a hiss and a puff of steam as soon as it touched her.

“Thea,” Fitzu said doubtfully, as his skin started to glow when he began to blaze his own core. “It’s a thirty-minute ride up the riverbank. That only leaves three and a half hours of constant magic use to actually try to save this bridge before our magic quits and we have to rest. After that, without our magic to blaze our cores, the cold rain will kill us all. I don’t fancy being turned into stone.”

Thea gave him an impatient, angry look. “I’m well aware of how our people’s magic works, Fitzu.” She took a step towards him. “But I couldn’t live with myself if we didn’t at least try. As much as I hate it, and hate the Frost Nation, we need that bridge to trade with them.”

Fitzu shrugged carelessly. “Do you see me glowing orange?” He asked flatly, indicating he already knew he wouldn’t be able to talk Thea out of trying to save that bridge. Thea smirked at him and gave him a nod. Her men knew her so well.

The rain had already started by the time all two hundred and fifty magic users were rallied, on horseback and heading west along the river bank. Guyus, Orn, and Waik were even riding along, their titles and ranks forgotten, niceties and protocols abandoned; everyone was just a person trying to save his or her nation right now.

A half hour later, Thea and the party arrived at the bridge. The sight was shocking, devastating. Thea pulled on her horse’s reigns so tightly that she nearly caused him to rear up. The water was almost level with the bridge, and raging waves were already crashing along the sides of the foundation and exploding over the top of the stone.

One look and Thea realized she wasn’t going to just be able to thicken the top so it didn’t flood. She would have to strengthen the very foundation, which was already missing huge pieces and rocking.

“What do we do, Thea?” Fitzu called over the crashing waves and pouring rain.

He was cloaked in his own halo of steam, like everyone else in her party, the rain water sizzling off their burning skin. Thea clenched her teeth and dismounted. “Everyone! To me!” she cried over the roaring river.

    1. You ask such great questions, but difficult ones lol! I haven't had my coffee yet... ;) Mine would probably be Fight Song by Rachel Platten. If I'm dealt difficult cards I just keep fighting and plugging away to achieve my goals and dreams. People don't stop me, nothing stops me, I just keep going no matter what things look like around me. :)

    2. Well I am stumped. Gosh when I was younger it was Miss Independent by Kelly Clarkson but I don't think I have a personal anthem now. I've always love What It's Like by Everlast though, it reminds me that people are their own little complicated universes and to have positive regard for everyone. Thanks for these great questions Mai T!

    3. Thanks for asking another thought-provoking question, Mai. Great to see you!

  2. Hi everyone! Thanks so much for joining us on this stop on the Frost Burn excerpt tour. Thanks so much to The Reading Addict for hosting us.

    If there are any questions, my co- author and I will be popping in periodically to answer them. You may be wondering what it was like to co-author together. Did we get along? Did we want to strangle each other? What was our process like since we've never met in person? :)

    No, we've never met. I'm from Massachusetts and KT is from Alaska, and we wrote this book together in a year. :) So feel free to ask away! We'll both be around.

    Have a wonderful day all!

    1. Great to 'meet' you both! Do you ever have plans to meet at one of the great conferences that take place around the country? And, what was your process...did you each write an alternating chapter?

      Thank you both for taking the time to interact with my visitors and good luck with the tour!

    2. Great to 'meet' you too! Thanks again for hosting us today.

      We did write alternating chapters. :) But I think the reason why it worked so well, and why it was really a lot of fun for me, was that we would edit each other's chapter as we went. I'd write Fire: Chapter Two. KT would go through my chapter and make edits. Then she would write Frost: Chapter Three. I would accept or reject her edits in my chapter, and then edit her chapter. She would accept and reject my edits as she saw fit. It worked awesome! :)

      We were actually talking about going to a conference a couple days ago, but nothing is planned yet. :) I hope to meet KT one day so I can give her a big hug. But time will tell. :)

    3. Editing has never been so painless for me! It was wonderful having someone check your work and ask questions during the process.

      I so want to! I want to do a conference in the lower 48 but flying for me is never less then 3 1/2 hours, and that's just into Seattle! We'll find a conference that is right for us at the right time and then we will finally meet face to face! I have no doubt we will meet - it is only a matter of when.

    1. We had a great time writing it! KT and I, as different as our styles are, somehow were able to come together and we really brought the best out of each other. The snags came when we got to the cover. But we pushed through and got a gorgeous piece of art as a result. :) We've talked about a sequel, or a prequel, but nothing is set in stone yet. :) We both have our own projects we're working on, but maybe someday! :)

    2. The outline process really was a team effort, but I loved it! Nichelle and I would bounce ideas off each other and vet ideas. You don't get to do that when you write by yourself. We are both really busy with our own projects but loved this world and its characters. I have no doubt we'll be drawn back into it!
