Tour Kick Off: Alawahea by @saraldaigle @Alawahea

Fantasy/Sci-Fi Romance
Date Published: 7/16/2015

Tamara Carrington always felt different. One event in high school left her wondering if maybe she really was a freak, although she’d managed to leave that experience in the past—buried deep in her psyche. With the arrival of the exchange students from the planet of Azelle to her college, Tamara’s long buried memories threaten to erupt. As Tamara’s emotions build and her friendship with the Azellians grows, so does the knowledge of secrets within her own family.
With the deterioration of her mother’s health, Tamara doesn’t know where to turn for answers or solace. What has her family been hiding? Why does she feel inexplicably drawn to the Azellians? What will happen if she unleashes her long-suppressed passion? Will she survive or even recognize herself afterwards? Wanting answers, yet being afraid of what she might find, Tamara wonders if it would be better to remain asleep.

#1 – Do you see writing as a career? Absolutely, yes. I see it as a very vibrant and active  

career. It is much more feasible now than it used to be before the advent of the 


#2 – What was the hardest part of your writing process? Getting enough confidence in 

myself to put my writing out there. The writing process itself has always come easily for 

me. My books just wrote themselves. Letting other people read them…that was the 

difficult part. 

#3 – Did you have any one person who helped you out with your writing (outside of your 

family)? There are several people who contributed to me personally in getting confident 

enough to actually publish, but in regards to the writing only, my editor, Donna 

Mazzitelli, has been hugely helpful. Critical, even. I would not be where I am without 


#4 – What is next for your writing? More books. I have 6 fully written books and several 

more in various stages of the process. I build a culture and a world and I have lots to 

share on it…  

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently 

reading? Absolutely. I am a voracious reader who will read just about anything I can get 

my hands on: historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal romance, urban 

fantasy, history (if well written and not boring academic treatises), biographies. Right 

now, I am reading a historical book on Richard III.

Sara L Daigle has been creating stories since she first forayed into the world of writing at the age of eight. As an avid reader, growing up in a small town without much access to a library, and before the birth of the Internet, Sara devoured her mother’s extensive stack of science fiction and romance novels to keep her literary thirst quenched. Soon afterwards, she began writing her own stories and entertaining her friends by composing plays for them to act out.
A passionate interest in astronomy, anthropology, and linguistics, coupled with this early background in science fiction and romance, led Sara to merge the two fields and create a series of interlinked stories built around a fictional planet’s culture and its interaction with ours.
Sara currently lives in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and three very loving but energetic dogs.
