Hello everyone:) Today I would like to throw the spotlight on Interred:Chronicles of the Interred, Book One Marilyn Almodovar! Please check out this awesome read and see the fun chat between fellow Time Benders Jack(i.e.The Sexy Warrior:O) and Baxter!
Author Marilyn Almodovar
Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.
It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.
Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.
Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, was published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013. The follow up Fissure will be published Winter 2013.
Interred:Chronicles of the Interred, Book One
Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.
To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.
As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.

BaxJax: This is so creepy.
JackTheSexyWarrior: I know right, why are you following us, Declan?
Declan: I’m not following you. I got an invite to this chat.
BaxJax: It wasn’t from me.
JackTheSexyWarrior: I didn’t invite you either.
Declan: Fine… I’ll leave… L
JackTheSexyWarrior: Is he gone?
Declan: No, I’m still here.
[Declan has left the chat]
JackTheSexyWarrior: Finally, we’re alone.
JackTheSexyWarrior: *waggles eyebrows*
BaxJax: STOP THAT!!! We’re here to let the readers know a bit about the next installment in the Chronicles of the Interred series, Fissure.
JackTheSexyWarrior: Are you sure? I thought it was all top secret. *shifty eyes*
BaxJax: Well, we’re not going to let the cat out of the bag. So, we can just share one tiny detail about the book.
JackTheSexyWarrior: It’s going to be awesome.
BaxJax: That sounds a bit conceited.
JackTheSexyWarrior: Okay, I’m going to be awesome.
JackTheSexyWarrior: Okay, so what do you propose?
BaxJax: Do I have to think about everything? What was your favorite thing in Fissure?
JackTheSexyWarrior: We get to see a bit more of the New York Council.
BaxJax: I liked that we made new friends.
JackTheSexyWarrior: Also we find out the importance of the Fissures.
BaxJax: And how much more annoying you are, when you think you’re right.
JackTheSexyWarrior: And how much more stubborn you get, when you know I’m right but don’t want to give in.
BaxJax: One last question.
JackTheSexyWarrior: *quirks brow*
BaxJax: Is it true that you beg our writer to include a cape for you to fly with?
JackTheSexyWarrior: I think that’s all the time we have tonight >:]
BaxJax: Wasn’t she going to add a big J to it?
JackTheSexyWarrior: Not funny.
BaxJax: I think that was it, a big J and the cape had to be gold…
BaxJax: Aw, come on, Jack. I’m only joking.
JackTheSexyWarrior: You’re not funny.
BaxJax: It’s not like I’m telling everyone about the time that you fell to the ground after trying to fly the first time… that didn’t even make it into Interred.
