The Universe Chronicles by Claire Davon - Book Tour + Giveaway


Shifting Auras
The Universe Chronicles Book 1
by Claire Davon

Genre:
Paranormal Romance 

Maya Wingfield was raised to trust no one—least of all the dueling U.S.
and Russian paranormal agencies, Universe and Night Stars, who’d
love to harness her mind-reading gift.


She thought Richmond a safe place to escape their influence and hide from
a rising psychic malevolence that drove her out of San Diego. But
when she gets yet another call to retrieve her drunken roommate, her
mind shows her an amber-eyed Universe operative with an impenetrable
net around his deepest secret—and a voice that sends shock waves of
awareness down her nerve endings.

Maya’s curves and aquamarine eyes aren’t the only things that jolt Ian
Sanderson’s mental shields, bringing sexual tension thrumming back
to life. It’s a power his Universe-trained mind knows he shouldn’t
trust. And a vulnerability that makes his telekinetic power burn in
his palms to protect her.

But to Universe, she is just one of too many unanswered questions. A
target for Whisper, a shadowy new group of paranormals with powers
beyond anything Universe has ever seen. Once before, Ian failed to
protect a sensitive from a brain-scrambling attack. He will not fail
again . . . even if it means using his talent—or his body—to stop a bullet.



Tracking Shadows
The Universe Chronicles Book 2

Since the day Jiana Falco was forced to join the paranormal agency Night
Stars, she’s been planning her escape. She uses her bodyguard’s
split-second of distraction to vanish into the shadows, and burns the
last bridge by saving Quillan Hardis.


But now, locked in Quillan’s muscular arms, pinned by his calculating
amber gaze, his invisibility talent shielding them both, she’s in
even 
deeper trouble.
If that’s possible.

Quillan didn’t get to Universe Corps’ highest echelons by being a fool.
The rare shadow manipulator in his grip is too easy a prize to be
anything but a setup. A pretty lure he should send back to Night
Stars. Instead, he holds on—and in changing her fate, he seals his own.

Under a secret order to unlock her untapped power—by any means
necessary—Quillan takes Jiana on the run with only a precog’s
vague direction, and a spark of desire that blooms into something
warm and genuine. But her fear of being clawed back into Night Stars’
control could drive Jiana so deep into the shadows nothing will get
her out. Not even the light of Quillan’s love.

But her fear of Night Stars could drives Jiana so deep into the shadows
nothing can lead her out. Not even the light of Quillan’s love.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
It’s hard to quantify. I called myself a writer for many years when I wasn’t actually writing, and I’m not sure, looking back, that I actually thought of myself as a writer. Because I wasn’t doing it, you see, and I am harder on myself than anyone else could ever be. So I would have to say that it was really when I got that first book deal with Samhain Publishing on September 29, 2015 that I finally thought “yeah, I am a writer.”


Do you have a favorite movie?

Not one – several probably. I define a favorite as something that I will watch again and again

Casablanca (true classic)
Star Trek II
Galaxy Quest
The Return of the King/all three LOTR movies
The Stand
The Empire Strikes Back


Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Oh, any of the Elementals books. Mythology, flying people, fire, air, water…imagine the possibilities! I can see Phoenix streaking across the San Francisco sky on his fire colored wings with Rachel in his arms…le sigh.

I also think this series would be great as a movie. There are so many movies about superpowers out there that this could slot comfortably into that genre while having the romance element.



As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
Not really. I gravitate toward cats and was born in the Chinese Year of the Tiger and so have an affinity for them, but I don’t want to say they are my mascot or spirit animal. The idea of a spirit animal is unique to that culture and I don’t have the right to claim it.
I am also fascinated by bears and appreciate them. Can I say that I resonate with both those animals without calling them my mascot?

Fun Facts/Behind the Scenes/Did You Know?'-type tidbits about the author, the book or the writing process of the book.

Hmm…Did you know…fun facts about me

1.      My uncle used to roadie for Bruce Springsteen and I met him when I was twelve years old
2.      I used to hang out on the Sunset Strip and was on a nodding first name basis with many of the 80s hair band musicians
3.      I break out in song sometimes
4.      I like to go down obscure folklore/mythology paths to find my characters
5.      I have been on the board of my local Romance Writers of America chapter for several years and am its current President
6.      I get up at 4:30 every morning to write
7.      I am not a good housekeeper
8.      I believe strongly in animal rescue and adopt/don’t shop
9.      I was bullied/picked on in grade school which I believe ultimately made me a stronger person

10.  I believe in trying to make every day the best I can


Claire can’t remember a time when writing wasn’t part of her
life. Growing up, she used to write stories with her friends. As
a teenager she started out reading fantasy and science fiction, but
her diet quickly changed to romance and happily-ever-after’s. A
native of Massachusetts and cold weather, she left all that behind to
move to the sun and fun of California, but has always lived no more
than twenty miles from the ocean.
In college she studied acting with a minor in creative writing. In
hindsight she should have flipped course studies. Before she was
published, she sold books on eBay and discovered some of her favorite
authors by sampling the goods, which was the perfect solution. Claire
has many book-irons in the fire, most notably her urban fantasy
series, The Elementals’ Challenge series, but writes contemporary
and shifter romances as well as.
While she’s not a movie mogul or actor, she does work in the film
industry with her office firmly situated in the 90210 district of
Hollywood. Prone to break out into song, she is quick on feet and
just as quick with snappy dialogue. In addition to writing she does
animal rescue, reads, and goes to movies. She loves to hear from
fans, so feel free to drop her a line.
