Divinity Blog Tour: Guest Post with Patricia Leever + Giveaway



Today I'm pleased to welcome author Patricia Leever to the blog as part of the promotional tour for her adult urban fantasy/paranormal romance hybrid, Divinity (Divinity releases TODAY from Omnific Publishing). She's here to share with us what she loves most about strong heroines (yeah!) and how she came by her appreciation for women who aren't afraid to be a little badass. Welcome to Supernatural Snark Patricia!

Greetings my super amazing love monkeys! Are you enjoying this blog tour so far? I sure as heck am! I love going to new places and making new friends like Jenny over here at Supernatural Snark! Thank you so much for having me over Jenny!

Okie dokie, anyone out there that knows me, knows that I love, LOVE, my heroines to kick some serious ass! And to be perfectly honest with you I had no idea why. I mean, not only do I love them in books that I read and television shows/movies that I watch, it is imperative that the heroines I create for my own pieces are bad-ass, take-no-crap, tough chicks with a side of girlie. It wasn’t until recently when I ran across a photo someone posted on Facebook of Wonder Woman, that I knew where it all began for me.

Yep, it all started with Wonder Woman. I was born in 1971 and being a child of the 70s and 80s I can clearly recall my love for things that had strong women in them, the Wonder Woman television show for one. I remember watching Linda Carter catch the bad guys and even in the Saturday morning cartoons, Wonder Woman was my homegirl. Then of course there was Erin Gray who played Wilma Deering on Buck Rogers and we can’t forget Lindsey Wagner as the Bionic Woman and Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in the Alien series and so many more I can’t even begin to name them all!

These women made such an impression on my young mind. I loved that these women didn’t wait for the man to leap in and save the day, they took charge, they grabbed a gun or a golden lasso and saved themselves! I think that’s why the female leads in my books are strong, capable women that aren’t afraid to speak their minds and kick some ass!

Well, I’d like to thank Jenny again for letting me occupy her blog for a second! Take care my monkeys and I’ll see you at the next stop!

Until next time,
Patty

DIVINITY
They’re everywhere, hiding in plain sight. Chances are, you’ve interacted with one or two of them in your lifetime without even realizing it...

Demon hunter Evelyn Brighton saves unsuspecting humans from the malevolent creatures masquerading around them every day. Working under the Lebriga Corporation’s direction, she never fails to bring her A-game with her keen skill, fiercely independent spirit, and the best weapon in her arsenal: the Divinity blade.

Evelyn’s world is turned on its ear, however, when she is ordered to train cocky new recruit Daniel Summers. They both feel an instinctive pull drawing them to one another, the ancient spells tattooed into their skin illuminating whenever the two hunters come into contact. But with evil looming over the city of Los Angeles, Evelyn and Daniel’s mutual competitiveness and sense of duty to Lebriga and all humankind forces them to hold back their desires. Will their restraint be enough to keep them focused and save southern California, or will the dark forces prevail?

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Divinity is an action-filled, fast-paced marriage of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Edgy, witty, and sexy, it will bind you in its spell.

  5. I love me some kick-ass leading ladies. I was an odd-duck in that it was Mrs. Hart (from Hart & Hart), Mrs King (from Scarecrow & Mrs. King), and Charlies Angels that were my role models. I wanted to be as smart, adept, and fearless as they were!

  6. I drink my coffee from a Wonder Woman mug. Definitely a fan! :)

  7. Kick-ass heroines rule! I am so excited to read this book!

  8. I've never watched Wonder Woman, but I like the idea of her. Too many super heroes are all about the strong guy rescuing the weak girl. On a side note, I find it so ironic that our culture celebrates male fantasy which usually denigrates females while decrying female fantasies like Twilight as not having a strong enough female. Always the double standard.

  14. I like Rose from Vampire Academy. I watched WonderWoman too. Even then, it looked cheesy. I wanted it to be real though!

  15. Hooray for kickass heroines! Ripley from Aliens is definitely one of my favorites, but I also love Sarah Conner from Terminator 2. Damn, girlfriend's got some muscles. I was born in 1971 as well and remember watching Lynda Carter rock it as Wonder Woman. I wanted one of her cool bracelets.

  16. I don't think I have ever watched Wonder Woman but my daughter is a big fan of 70's, 80's and 90's shows so I guess I have been getting caught up on some of those older shows. We didn't have a Tv growing up so anything I watched was whatever my grandma watched when we visited her.
    Another great tour stop!

  18. Thanks for a great post and giveaway! I'd say Kate Daniels from the Ilona Andrews series

    ReplyDelete
  19. In a book it would definitely be Rose from The Vampire Academy and as far as a movie goes, it'd be Kate Beckisale's character in the Underwrold. lol.

  20. I'm gonna have to say Selene from Underworld. She's pretty amazing. Thanks for the giveaway. Love the tattoos on the cover!

  21. I'm right behind Patricia in that I was born in 69 so besides growing up with Wonder Woman, my main kick ass heroine was The Bionic Woman - hands down!!! I loved Jamie!!! She had the kick butt farm house with horses, perfect long hair and she could kick guy's butts. I wanted to be her!!!

    Nowadays, my heroines are more like Ivy from The Hollows or Mercy Thompson :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  22. Bad-ass, take-no-crap tough chicks are my favourite kind of heroines! I'm nearly always more likely to pick up a book if I hear that the main character is a kick-ass female. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh, I LOVED Wonder Woman growing up, but my favorite bad-ass heroine had to be Ripley in Aliens. Oh wait, maybe Buffy. Eeek, I can't pick just one! This sounds like a wonderful start to a series, especially if Evelyn is anything like some of these great heroines! I want to meet Daniel too! Thanks for the great giveaway ladies. :)

  24. God, I have seen this book all over the blogs! Firstly, I want magical glow in the dark tattoos. I'd like to know where to get them. Can you find out?

    I was born around the same time so I watched Wonder Woman. She was from a race of Amazons. I loved her and the Bionic Woman. Didn't watch Buck Rogers or Alien but knew who they where. I loved that the Bionic Woman was just as tough and strong as the Bionic Man. And don't forget Charlie's Angels! They could kick some ass, too!

  25. Ahhh! I missed this yesterday! I feel like I am running in circles and I am a day late and a dollar short! I too was born in the 70s and grew up in the eighties...and yes I remember Wonder Women and the Bionic Woman...man I wanted to wear those red boots! Great post! Looking forward to reading the prequel!

  26. You know I'm a fiend for kick-ass heroines (and heroes...*drool*) -- I think it started with Wonder Woman. I'd put my blankie around my neck and spin and spin and spin (yes, I know she didn't have a cape but I didn't have the hair or the bod so you gotta do whatcha gotta do, yanno?). This book looks AWESOME!

  27. Cat Crawford from the Night Huntress series by Jeanine Frost

    Adding to the realism of experience, the Lotus masturbation sleeve texture, available on all fleshlight Girls Fleshlights, offers something that no other male sex toy during
