AUTUMN ROSE by ABIGAIL Gibbs, Blog Tour: Guest Post

Welcome to today's stop in the AUTUMN ROSE blog tour. I'm thrilled to have Abigail Gibbs on the blog today to tell us 5 things we didn't know about Autumn Rose.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Autumn Rose

  1. Sage can develop the skill to take energy from the earth, which is where their magic originates (as does all energy), though it has the unfortunate side effect of killing any living thing if too much is taken. Autumn Rose is the youngest known Sage to have mastered the skill.
  2. Autumn isn’t known for abiding the law or her veganism and drank her first ‘human blood shooter’ aged thirteen. Taken for its non-alcoholic intoxicating effects, it isn’t particularly dangerous to a dark being, but the humans aren’t too keen…
  3. When Autumn’s grandmother named her, Autumn’s parents objected to the choice, thinking their daughter would be bullied for having seasons as a first and last name (Autumn and Al-Summers), and even tried calling her ‘Rose’ for a time… until the grandmother threatened to cut them off financially.
  4. As a young girl, Autumn Rose attended human nursery and was best friends with two girls called Tammy and Christy. Ten years later and after attending a Sagean school, the three girls were re-united after Autumn returned to the area, and were once again friends. Such a friendship meant Tammy and Christy were able to have some very unusual experiences with Sagean royalty…
  5. If Autumn’s grandmother and parents were to die at any point, and having no other family left alive, it was decided before her birth that Autumn’s guardian would be Eaglen, a seer and vampire greatly admired by the Al-Summer family.

Autumn Rose has the chance to save the world she loves. But how much will she have to sacrifice?
Autumn Rose lives in a sleepy seaside town, but buried deep under the surface of her quiet life are dark secrets. Her grandmother is dead, murdered eighteen months ago, and the vibrant London social scene in which she was brought up is a world away. Even worse, at her new school she is shunned and condemned––all because of the swirling marks on her skin that prevent her from blending in with the crowd.
Then the appearance at her school of a handsome young man—who has the same curious markings as Autumn—sends her world into turmoil. Suddenly the marks are deemed cool, and Autumn is thrust into the limelight. But her sudden popularity brings danger as her secrets threaten to come to light. And then there are her recurring dreams about a girl who is about to be seduced by a very dark prince . . . and Autumn must figure out how to save her before it is too late.

About The Author

Abigail Gibbs was born and raised in deepest, darkest Devon. She is currently studying for a BA in English at the University of Oxford and considers herself a professional student, as the real world is yet to catch up with her. Her greatest fear is blood and she is a great advocate of vegetarianism, which logically led to the writing of her first novel, Dinner With A Vampire. At age fifteen, she began posting serially online under the pseudonym Canse12, and after three years in the internet limelight, set her sights towards total world domination. She splits her time between her studies, stories and family, and uses coffee to survive all three.
