Thank you for having me here today!
As I was sampling the awesomeness that is Taking Time for Mommy I found this in the humor section (http://takingtimeformommy.com/2012/01/not-the-end-of-the-world-funny/). And I thought, the Mayan Doom plus Marty McFly? Golden 🙂
Black Diamond Jinn is a lot like the comic. Like Marty, heroine Amaia Jones is young, funny, and dealing with a world gone slightly nuts. In both comic and book, the Mayan Doom isn’t real. Well it shouldn’t be, because honestly, the end of a Mayan Long Count is just a time of bad luck, not cosmic meltdown—a chance for the Mayans to buy a new calendar, maybe something with kittens and puppies.
But in Jinn, a bad guy is whipping up the world’s Y12 feeding frenzy, making the Doom real. Four hours before the end of everything, Amaia discovers this. As a government witch it’s her duty to stop it, but her magic isn’t enough. So she gets help from her own Doc Brown—a powerful, sexy jinni named Rafe.
Of course, Jinn isn’t PG like Back to the Future, because Amaia and Rafe first try to save the world with some red-hot X-rated Venus magic. But there’s action and humor and emotions, and like both comic and movie, it can take readers someplace else for a little time off.
Have sex, avert doom, save the world.
The Mayan Doom is real. Government witch Amaia Jones has the spreadsheet to prove it.
Amaia is a desk-bound research wizard, living uncomfortably in the shadow of her famous Venus-magic parents. Then she discovers the world
is ending. Tonight. But her bulldog of a boss not only refuses to believe her, he won’t give her the secret to calling the one force powerful enough to help-the jinn. Amaia turns to her mental guardian angel, Rafe, the darkly handsome presence who has comforted her since
her parents died.
Rafe has a secret of his own. He’s a black diamond jinn, one of the deadliest and most powerful of his kind. He’s detected an enemy
ruthlessly using blood sacrifice to stoke Y12 public panic. Rafe needs to get into the human realm to stop the Doom, but he can’t unless Amaia calls him, and she is threatened by his scorching sensuality.
Amaia’s guardian angel is a stunning jinni and suddenly her job is far more complicated. Jinn take their pound of flesh in exchange for
magical help, but the only flesh Rafe wants is hers, taut with delight. Sounds great, except Venus magic is what drove a wedge between her parents.
But her alternatives are rapidly dwindling, and with four hours to go on humanity’s darkest night, the only alternative to surrendering her flesh may be surrendering her life.
The tour will run from July 23-August 3.
