Tour Kick Off - Reckoning by Molly Hall

Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy
Date Published: 10/2/12

 "They say the truth can set you free. I found out it can kill you."

Seventeen-year-old Kat Matheson has never revealed the dark secret that sets her apart from everyone else: She can see and hear the dead. Until now, she has been able to ignore the strange apparitions and whispering voices. But it may not be that simple anymore. Haunted by eerie visions and increasingly frightening nightmares, Kat begins to fear she may be the target of a dark and ominous force from beyond the grave. Complicating matters is the arrival of her new neighbor, a young man she instinctively distrusts but is inexplicably drawn to. Gorgeous and mysterious, he seems to hold a disturbing knowledge of her long-held secrets.

As she desperately tries to maintain control, events take an unexpected and violent turn. Discovering that nothing is what it seems and that her psychic abilities may involve far more than just communing with the dead, Kat may be forced to confront her worst fears and the powerful curse that controls her destiny.

I’ve spent most of my life in Colorado and currently live just outside of Denver. I write my books on a laptop perched atop a rather creaky desk, surrounded by two crazy and loving cats. I love to travel and have visited 27 of the 50 states, as well as Canada, Ireland and England. And there are still a lot of places I want to go.
I spent entirely too many years in the gray dullness of the corporate world, imagining something more exciting as I punched numbers on a keyboard. During that time, I worked on a degree in English Literature, but never quite managed to complete it. Mostly because I was too busy reading and creating fantasy worlds in my head. It’s actually my love of reading and imagining that led me to take up writing full time. I thought I should finally give all the characters in my head a voice.
Music is a huge part of my life and plays a big role in the creation of my books. Although I listen to everything from Johann Sebastian Bach and Dvorak, to Glen Miller and Bobby Darin, to Rihanna and Nox Arcana, as well as movie and video game soundtracks, there are two bands whose music is practically my lifeblood: Daughtry and Linkin Park. I will listen to or see them live anytime, anywhere.
I’m a fan of British television, Doctor Who (favorite doctor? David Tennant. Let the debate begin!), The Vampire Diaries, Japanese animé, Ghost Hunters, MI-5 and Eureka. And anything featuring James McAvoy. And I probably would never be able to unwind without That 70′s Show.
When I’m not reading and writing, you'll probably find me listening to music, practicing yoga, working on my very inadequate French, playing piano, enjoying a lovely glass of red wine or champagne, or looking for inspiring landscapes to photograph.

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely! I have been working towards this for several years. Really
since I was 12 years old. It's taken me a long time to get here, but I am
completely committed to it.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
For me, the hardest part was/is letting the story go. There is always a nagging
doubt at the back of my mind that something is missing or that it could be
better, or that I should have added the scene I decided to leave out. But at
some point, you just have to let it go, and, hopefully, take wing.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of
Your Family?
No. For "Reckoning", I really kept it close to home, and even they didn't read it
until it was complete!

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I am currently working on the sequel to "Reckoning". I have also completed the
first book in an adult mystery series that I may release sometime in 2013.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently
I am completely and hopelessly addicted to reading! My day is not complete
without reading at least one chapter. I am currently reading "Venom" by
Fiona Paul.

This or That?

#1 - iPod or Mp3? Mp3

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Neither. I'm a salt girl. Bring on the chips!

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? French fries

#4 – Comedy or Drama? Drama

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? I have to confess I have never read either one, so
I can't honestly answer that.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality? Fantasy all the way.

#7 – Call or Text? Text

#8 – Public School or Home School? Depends on the school, but for the most part, I
would say public.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate.

#10 – eBook or Paperback? Paperback. Nothing beats the feel and smell of a book.
