Title: A SLITHER OF HOPE (ANGEL SIGHT #2)
Publication date: August 5, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Lisa M. Basso
Rayna struggles to piece her life back together, but hiding in plain sight from the police, the SS Crazy, and the Fallen isn’t a foolproof plan—something Kade, the World’s Worst Roommate, reminds her of everyday. The late nights of failing to teach Ray how to protect herself against the Fallen are getting to Kade, changing him in ways he doesn’t like, and after a family emergency sends Ray back into Cam’s arms, Kade decides he’s had enough. News of Rayna’s resurfacing brings both angels and the Fallen to San Francisco by the dozens, all eyes scouring the city for the girl with the gray wings. Rayna will need both Kade and Cam’s help to ensure her family’s safety, navigate the new dangers and enemies springing up all over the city, and manage the surprises that arise with her new set of wings.

A Day in the life of an Author by Lisa M. Basso
I’d love to be able to tell you guys that writing is a sport, or that it makes me feel like a secret agent, or that I do exciting, daring things all the time. The truth though is writing is a lot of long, sometimes tedious, hours. But there are some truly special moments that offset the boring ones.
One of the great things about being an author is that there is no typical day in my life. Every day brings new and exciting challenges. For example, today I’m off from the day job, so I can dedicate ALL DAY to writing and writing-related projects. I must be a total geek because these are my favorite days of the week.
*cue geeking out about creative stuff!*
On any given day, I check my email first, in case I have something waiting from my publisher. Edits, blog tour interviews/guest posts, deadlines, and the occasional awesome book signing opportunity. Sometimes I even get updates and info from the Angel Sight audiobooks (which is beyond incredible and still mind-boggling).
Then it’s time for work. Edits on A Matter of Time—the third and final book in the Angel Sight series—are nearly complete. The deadline is looming. Good thing I’m almost done *whew*. I spent a few hours working on them, then I move on to something else.
Reading. I try to make time every day to read, for both work and pleasure. There are so many great books on my to-read shelves. There aren’t enough hours in the day! Also, now I’m geeking about reading.
Work on posts for this blog tour. I have something like twenty posts to write or interviews to answer for the blog tour. So, another hour or two on that.
Now it’s time for food and to work on edits of my own. All three books in the Angel Sight series are written. Two are published. One is about to be handed in. The last one will be out of my hands for a few weeks. What is a busy author to do? Answer: work on a new project. In my spare time, I’m revising a YA contemporary fantasy I wrote a few years ago.
Next comes the boring stuff: cook dinner, eat. Then the fun stuff: enjoy the evening, watch TV or movies or play video games with my husband.
So, a normal day in my life is pretty dull, but there are the occasional amazing days. Like a book signing, a writer’s conference, traveling for research, or discovering a great idea in an unexpected place.
Writing is a strange and unusual job—and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
