Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Vendetta Nation by Sara Furlong-Burr

Date Published: 10/18/2013

What if you gave up everything you knew and loved for a lie? 
Nearly one year ago, Celaine Stevens made the choice to leave her life behind to join The Epicenter, an organization charged with bringing down The Man in Black - a terrorist and the one responsible for the murder of her entire family. Battling conflicting emotions and the pain her decision caused, Celaine tells herself that her sacrifices will all have been worth it when The Man in Black is finally apprehended. 
But, instead of hunting the elusive entity, Celaine and her partner Ian Grant find themselves preparing for a war looming on the horizon. Angered by President Brook’s ever-tightening restrictions, a rebellion has formed, leading the charge against the President and anyone who stands in their way. Caught in the middle, Celaine and Ian are forced to choose sides, having to decide whether to align themselves with the rebellion, whose motives they question, or obey the orders given to them by an organization they are steadily growing to distrust. 
A war is sparked by deceit, new alliances are formed, an unexpected love begins to blossom, and true identities are revealed in Vendetta Nation, the second installment of the Enigma Black trilogy.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?  Eventually, yes, I would love to make writing my career.  It is my absolute dream to be able to do nothing but write all day.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?  I tend to overthink things when I write and edit as I go, which bogs down my flow. When this happens, I try my best to clear my mind and just write what comes to me, periodically reminding myself that it’s not time to edit yet.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?  I don’t have just one person helping me, I have several.  Fellow indie authors on Twitter, beta readers, and my proofreader have all provided me with valuable advice and much needed help along the way.

#4 – What is next for your writing? Currently, I’m working on Redemption, the final book in the Enigma Black trilogy, which will be released in 2014. After that, I’ll let the voices in my head decide what to write next.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading? Of course.  You can’t be writer without also being a reader.  Right now, I’m reading Fountain of Forever by K.D. Berry, a fellow indie author who writes excellent fantasy/comedy novels.  I’m also reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth because I can’t get enough of that dystopian genre.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet:  War is sparked by deceit, alliances are formed, identities are revealed, and love blooms in Vendetta Nation, the sequel to Enigma Black.

This or That?

#1 - iPod or Mp3? I can’t travel anywhere without my iPod.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Most definitely chocolate, but I wouldn’t turn vanilla down.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?  French Fries.

#4 – Comedy or Drama? This depends on what mood I’m in. Today, I’ll go with drama.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? I’ve never read anything by Danielle Steel, so Nicholas Sparks wins by default, but, really, who doesn’t love The Notebook?

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

#7 – Call or Text? Text.  I despise talking on the phone.

#8 – Public School or Home School? Public School. 

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate?  Nothing beats hot chocolate on a snowy winter day.

#10 – eBook or Paperback? Ebooks, but every once in a while, I like to hold a paperback in my hands.

Sara Furlong-Burr
Sara "Furlong" Burr was born on February 1, 1982, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. At an early age, when it became apparent she wouldn't have the luxury of skating through life on her looks or athletic prowess, Sara found her true passion in writing. While in fifth grade, she wrote her first "novel"(whose name escapes her at the moment) about five friends who win a trip to Hawaii. At ninety-something pages, it was her crowning achievement during her childhood (you may now begin drawing your own conclusions on how sad a childhood Sara actually had).

After focusing much of her adult life on her family and career as a paralegal, Sara found the voices in her head becoming unrelenting and she returned to her true passion. Currently, she's working on the third book in the Enigma Black trilogy (due out in 2014). She's also tossing around ideas for a chick-lit book about two ill-fated lovers (Lord, help her). 

When she's not writing, Sara enjoys reading (pretty much a given), attempting to garden, shopping (prerequisite to being a woman), and spending time with her family and friends who somehow manage to tolerate her numerous disappearances propagated by infrequent bouts of inspiration.
