PLEASE WELCOME JANDY TO BOOKHOUNDS YA 

 

1.      What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
Harry and the Terrible Whatsit, about a seriously boss little boy defending his mommy from a monster in the basement. No joke, go check it out. 😛
If you’re talking chapter books, it’s got to be A Wrinkle In Time. I think that’s where my love for sci fi and fantasy really began.
2.      What are you reading right now?

I’m not reading near as much as I’d like to be right now, since I’m writing Book 2 in the Senitha’s Light series, but I’m listening to Written In My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon in my spare time, i.e. when driving, sweeping up goldfish and chasing my three-year-old around the house to make him put on his pants.

3.      How does your garden grow?
*sigh* Before my second child, my garden grew high and fat with tomatoes, peppers, and many, many bunches of cilantro (I can eat it on anything). But I have big plans for planting next spring…that is, after Book 2 is released, because Mara and Daneel’s new adventure need my attention!
4.      What is the last thing you Googled?

Predators of the Rocky Mountains, where Mara’s home at the compound is situated. I’m thinking someone is about to have a nerve-tingling encounter in Book 2…

5.    What makes you cringe?

Really embarrassing moments for the main characters (that are supposed to be humorous) in books that I’m reading. You won’t find any of those in my books. I’m not sure I could force my fingers to type them. Perhaps because I’ve had my fair share of those and don’t need to relive the embarrassment!

The SendingThe Sending

A city’s peace is shattered when two university students go missing, and only Daneel and his friends know the shocking truth of what happened. Finding themselves under attack, Daneel leads them in a race to escape the mounting violence.

Mara is willing to kill for the beliefs of the faction that raised her. But as she seeks out her mark, using a rare, mystical form of travel known as the Sending, Mara discovers a powerful connection that challenges the truth of everything she’s been taught.
While Daneel fights to protect those he cares for, Mara must choose whether to cling to the ideology of her home—or open her scarred heart to a searing attraction and the promise of a new life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Praise for The Sending

The Sending reads like a dystopian Romeo and Juliet where strong, full characters from very different places inevitably collide with passion and conflict. Salguero fills a fresh, vibrant world with a nerve-tingling fast plot. Prepare to be immersed. ~Tamara Ward, author of Hidden Betrayal

The Sending is a thrilling, fast-paced, science fiction-romance that’s impossible to put down. Edge-of-your-seat action scenes, and a romantic attraction so intense that it will make you want to turn down the air conditioning, The Sending is a great read that left me hungry for more. I loved this book!
~Sterling R. Walker, author of The Orphan Ship
