AAD Author Spotlight: Guest Post by P.J. Schnyder + Giveaway! (18+)

I was lucky enough to be in Las Vegas during the celebration of Chinese New Year and as a special treat, my boyfriend took me to see Le Rêve .

Le Rêve wowed and enchanted me with every dance on the water, in the water and through the air above the it. Through it all, I was delighted by the additional sub plots interwoven through the overarching story in the show. There were comic secondary characters and sinuous mysteries swimming just beneath the surface, dark bad boys vying for the heroine's attention and seductive water nymphs teasing the audience.

It was a work of art. Truly.

And it inspired me to weave my stories with similar thought and care. I want to give my readers a reason to come back and read my stories again, catch hidden references and smile at cute moments.
I'm working hard this year to complete several full length novels as well as a few short stories. Every one of them is a stretch for me as I grow as a writer.

It's the Year of the Dragon and as a Dragon, I plan to make the most of it. ;)

I'd like to offer an ecopy of Drowning Tides, my mermaid short story from Tease Publishing, to one random visitor. Just leave a comment and share with us what your Chinese Zodiac sign is and what your plans for the year are. :D


Lora loved being a mermaid, reveled in the freedom of the sea. But an ancient danger approaches and her friend, Katherine, needs to live up to her potential or countless lives will end.

In an effort to coax Katherine ashore to spend time immersed in the emotions humans generate so easily, Lora steals the breath of life from unwary divers. For every human life, she has three days and three nights to fill her lungs with air and walk among them.

Seeking the perfect bait for Katherine, Lora goes ashore … but finds love instead.
