BLOG TOUR [Interview & Giveaway!!] FIRE IN THE DARKNESS by Stacey Marie Brown


by Stacey Marie Brown
Series: Darkness #2


***This is NOT a YA Series but a New Adult(17+). Sexual Content and Language.***

It's been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.

And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.

The Series on Facebook:

Do you like the spotlight or lurking in the shadows?
I enjoy a little of both. When I was younger I’d say I was a bit more of a “spotlighter.” but now I am much more a “lurker in the shadows.” I have such a split personality. I can stand up and lead huge groups of people and then other times talking to a few about me makes me want to crawl in a hole! It depends on the situation and my confidence at that time.

How many books are in your TRB pile?
Too many to count! Just on my nightstand right now there are 6 books. That is not counting the ones I just bought or the ones on my Kindle waiting for me to read.

What one item would you eat for the rest of your life?
I am not too good at this type of question. I am a Gemini. I have too many personalities to please. I love varying food and eating different things. I don’t know if there is one thing that I could eat every day without getting sick of it.

What is the last thing you bought? 
Books from Amazon. I know… shocker!

Pet Peeves?
Obnoxiously arrogant or rude people. People that take up more than one parking place. I have a million, but I am pretty easy going. It’s mostly when people are selfish and have no consideration for others that I really get peeved.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
That I used to be an actress (aka waitress) in L.A and worked as a regular (extra) on Buffy and Angel. I have also lived in 4 different countries and traveled to places like Bosnia.

What do you do in your free time?
Write. I know it is sad, but it is when I can fit in writing between my job and life. I also love to hike, travel, and be with friends. Not very exciting. But writing is kind of my life right now. As other writers know, you never stop working. There is no “free time” or off switch. Your brain is constantly plotting, working out scenes, or coming up with ideas for the next story.

Can you share a little about the current title you are working on?
I am working on Book 3, Dwellers of Darkness. It continues on where Book 2, Fire in the Darkness, ends. This one still has a lot of action, but slows down a little and gets a more back to the relationships and development. A lot more is revealed in this one. Things start connecting, but still expect more twist and turns, love and betrayal!

About Stacey Marie Brown

Stacey Marie Brown by day is an Interior/Set Designer, by night a writer of Paranormal Fantasy, Adventure, and Literary Fiction. She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family’s farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. Even before she could write, she was creating stories and making up intricate fantasies. Writing came as easy as breathing.  She later turned that passion into acting, living and traveling abroad, and designing. Though she had never stopped writing, moving back to San Francisco seemed to have brought it back to the forefront and this time it would not be ignored.
When she’s not writing she’s out hiking, spending time with friends, traveling, listening to music, or designing.

Series: Darkness #1


Freak. Witch. Crazy. Schizo.

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.

When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for trouble teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

What most intrigues me is the unknown abilities/powers of Ember. It sounds like an amazing story!

Great interview. As for what intrigues me most about the book... the better question would be what doesn't intrigue me. After reading the synopsis and seeing the giveaway I decided to check out amazon and read the preview available. The writing is great! I can't wait to read these books.

Good Luck with the giveaway everyone
