Rebecca Royce's Love Beyond Sight

I love having Rebecca Royce come by. She's got the greatest books and a cool series going on. She's here to promote her latest book, Love Beyond Sight. You might want to comment. I know I will be. Why? Rebecca will be giving away a $50 GC to one randomly drawn commenter during the tour and a $50 GC to the host with the most comments.

Since she's here, I asked her how she balances keeping so many series books straight while having a life and a family? I know it's hard for me to balance, so I wanted to hear how she does it. Grin. Welcome, Rebecca.

I wish I had a good answer to this question. Outside of where do my ideas come from this is the question I get asked the most. The truth is, that like everyone else, I’m really trying to figure it out on my feet as I go.

In my case, I don’t need quiet and alone time to write. I can write anywhere, anytime. Right now, for example, as I write this, it is Saturday morning. My kids are watching a Pixar movie and I am sitting near them watching it with them and writing. I actually focus better when I have noise and distraction.
I also don’t require large amounts of time and I can fit in writing in brief pockets of convenience rather than having to step away from everything and go on my own.

Other than that, I don’t know if I have a good balance or I’m just floundering in the wind. But don’t most mothers feel that way?

I totally understand. Thanks for stopping by, Rebecca! Can't wait to read this book!
Here's the blurb because if you're like me, you want to know more about the book!
In Love Beyond Sanity, Eden Roan awoke in a mental hospital, unsure of how she got there. Nearly discovered by a demon, she is rescued by a voice in her mind who saves her life by transforming her figure into something the demon doesn't want to look at. The voice tells her she is his but that they will never, ever meet. As time progresses, Eden becomes more and more convinced that the voice is just her imagination playing tricks on her. It can't possibly be her destined soul mate. Or can it?

Samuel Quinn was horribly disfigured by the demon when he was a child. He can't stand looking at himself and does not want Eden to see him. Luckily, his powers allow him to hide himself using other people's features as his own. But when Eden needs him, Samuel will have to step forward to save her even if he can never let her see the real him.

Can there be love without sight? Or will the demon finally have them all just where he wants them?

And now for an excerpt - because you all deserve it!
I’m alone in the house.

Eden Roan swallowed away the lump in her throat. Why hadn’t she known everyone was leaving? Her heart rate picked up, thumping hard against her ribcage. She hadn’t been alone in six months. Not since Charma and Marina had found her, nearly comatose, locked up in a mental institution in New Jersey.

She swung around calling out into the living. “Hello? Anyone here?”

Even as she called out, she knew she need not have bothered. No one was home. She could feel the emptiness around her. Loneliness assaulted her soul and she nearly doubled over from the feeling before she pulled herself together. Wow. She was being really, really ridiculous.

It didn’t mean anything that everyone had left and no one had said goodbye. Probably, they didn’t mean to all leave. Each one must have thought someone else remained in the house. No way, no how would she be left, by herself, in their huge house on their private island in Maine.

Except that it was December and getting back and forth from the island in the middle of winter took advanced planning. They would have all have had to board the boat at the same time. Marina would have had to spell cast the water to keep it calm…

No, there was something terribly wrong. She took off at a run. Her large, sturdy feet bracing her body for the run she made down the hall. Sebastian, the demon, must have gotten to them. They were all dead. That was the only explanation.

“I’ve got your mind, Eden.” She heard the voice of the demon resonate through the halls of the too empty house. Even though she had personally never spoken with him before, she had no doubt he was who tormented her now. “I’ve killed the others and now I’ll spend eternity torturing you with just what I want you to see.”

And a little bit about Rebecca!
As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

Aren't all women multi-taskers? Thanks for having me today!

I think women are great at multi-tasking. Mostly because I think we have to be.
