Authors ARE Rockstars- Featuring Page Morgan and a Giveaway!





Welcome to day 1 of the month long Authors ARE Rockstars tour! Today I am super excited to kick off the tour with my first Rockstar Author, Page Morgan!

Why did I choose Page you're asking? Well that's easy let me set the scene.....

I was staring at my bookshelves not knowing what I wanted to read and this beautiful cover kept whispering to me "pick me up, pick me up"; so I finally did and this book rocked my world! The book is THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED normally I'm not a historical fan but throw in anything paranormal and I'll devour it. Which is what I did with this book! Pages writing is beautiful and I loved the Gargoyles and Demons! Also it's told in multiple POV's which I adore. And we get not one but 4 hot boys to drool over! There's a boy for everyone's tastes! I am a Nolan girl and Rachel is a Luc girl LOL!

After devouring the book Page and I began chatting on twitter and we've become twitter buddies and Pinterest pals who swoon over hot boys and beautiful scenery! Which leads to our post. I asked Page to share some of her pins from her Pinterest boards and why they inspired her and THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED!

So lets meet Page!

Page Morgan is the author of the young adult Gothic thriller, THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED. She became intrigued by gargoyles when she came across an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. Right away, she knew she had to tell that gargoyle's story. Page lives in New England with her husband and their three daughters, along with an ancient dog, arrogant cat, and two surprisingly cuddly bearded dragons.

And now to Page's post! All of these pics are from Page's Pinterest boards and they all link back to her boards so you can see more of the awesomeness!


The Picture of Inspiration: THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED I don’t usually search for picture inspiration when I’m in the middle of writing a story. I let my imagination do all the work, piecing together the details of a character’s physical appearance or a particular setting. However, when I finally broke down and joined Pinterest a few months before The Beautiful and the Cursed released into the world (I know, I know, I’m late to the party) I went a little Pin crazy. Allow me to introduce my characters and world in this Pin Post:

 Ingrid Waverly and Gabby Waverly have moved from London to Paris in December of 1899.



Ingrid

and

Gabby
They’re supposed to be meeting up with their brother (and Ingrid’s twin) Grayson, who had gone to Paris ahead of them to secure a home and a building to house their mother’s new art gallery.



Grayson
However Ingrid and Gabby find that he’s purchased an old abbey and rectory lined with stone gargoyles, and something worse: Grayson is missing.

And those gargoyles? Well, the statues may be made of stone, but there are other gargoyles—shape shifting gargoyles—who are charged with protecting humans. Ingrid and Gabby have a protector of their own: Luc.

Luc
He’s one of the Dispossessed, gargoyles living among Parisians in plain sight, shifting into their grotesque forms when their human charges find themselves in danger. And Luc knows what’s happened to Grayson.

So does the Alliance, an underground society of demon hunters. Two Alliance members take an interest in Ingrid and Gabby’s search for their brother: Nolan Quinn and Vander Burke.

 
Nolan


Vamder
Soon Ingrid and Gabby find themselves in a world ruled by demons and demon hunters, gargoyles and angels, and they discover that they are already tied to this world in some unexpected ways.

I loved finding images of people who just seemed to fit my vision of these characters, especially Gabby’s.

But there were other things I found on Pinterest that went with the book, like fashion…


and demon hunter weaponry…


modes of transportation…


and of course, plenty of gargoyles…




Now here's some info on the book!


Goodreads/Amazon/Barnes & Noble/The Book Depository

After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris. In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures. And Grayson has gone missing. No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home. Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.
