Book Tour: The Guardians of Man - Guest Post by Lori Titus

Tour Schedule Here

What was your inspiration for this book- all of it's characters, locations, plot, etc?

The Guardians of Man was co-authored with Crystal Connor, and we played back and forth with the events that took place in Fate's Keep.  The town, an isolated mountain community about to face a brutal winter was meant to make the reader experience the characters sense of isolation. We started off with a simple question - how would the people in this community handle the end of the world?  The story extends from there,  pitting forces of good and evil against each other with mankind's fate in the balance. Guardians is my turn as lead writer, and The End is Now is Crystal's turn in the driver seat.

Hunting in Closed Spaces started off as a short story.  There are a lot of stories of vampire hunters, but I wanted to build a story about a girl who could hunt werewolves. Along with this I created my own origin story for Wolves, a sort of "cousin" to the human species with their own history and religion independent of mankind.

Marradith's world is peopled with Wolves, vampires, witches and demons who pledge their allegiance to one of two groups - The Circle,  which seeks to control mankind, and The Sojourners, who believe in protecting supernatural "Others" while living amongst humans. Marradith fights to find her place - and where her loyalties lie - as neither group is as clear cut as they seem.  Marradith herself is a Lamia,  a hybrid of supernatural races with abilities that make her a threat to some,  a valuable commodity ti others.
