The White Aura

The White Aura

Please provide us with a brief synopsis of your book.

How do you live with the gut clenching truth that the one you love will die if you meet them?Twenty year old sorcerer Scott Tabors is learning how. After seeing seventeen year old Olivia Whitehead outside of a coffee shop, his heart will never be the same. He longs for her, he wants her, and he knows she will be his. They are heart mates. …but due to a curse on his family, he can’t meet her. Not yet. So for now, he visits her in her dreams. Her dreams where he can tell her everything but his name.

Olivia Whitehead is a typical junior in high school. She and her best friend are having the time of their lives, but she can’t help but notice the changes happening to her. Especially the changes in her heart after she begins dreaming about a mysterious dark haired young man. But what will happen when the school heartthrob decides he wants Olivia? Will she realize the dream man is real or will she move on?

    Good luck with the book! The cover is wonderful (love the yellow on gray), so that's a good start already. "believe in yourself" – important advice for us all.

  2. Stan says:

    I wonder how she will do? First book, unpublished author, in a overcrowded field.
    i realize that she is doing this out of love of writing, but w
    authors have to make money.

    My congratulations to you to try and help these authors.

      We authors try to help each other out. 🙂

    • Felicia Tatum says:

      I'm in graduate school for my MBA. I have a backup. I'm not worried. As long as one person loves my book, I'm happy 🙂

      Thank you for having me, Cheryl!!

      • Geek Girl says:

        You are very welcome. 🙂

  3. Thank you! 🙂 I think my artist did a wonderful job, too!

    I wish her all the best with her book. It sounds really delightful and like it would be a fun read.

    • Felicia Tatum says:

      Thank you!!! 🙂

  5. Getting the time in to write a book as well as work on an MBA is a Herculean effort. I applaud the efforts.

  6. Felicia Tatum says:

    Aww, thanks! It's time consuming, but I work best when busy! 🙂

  7. Thx for the interview with Felicia, Cheryl.

    I love the cover of her book. And I certainly admire writers who have been writing since childhood. I sort of fell into writing via redeployment at my corporate job, and am so grateful that the gods led me in this direction.

    Happy New Year, and I look forward to reading more interesting profiles on your blog.

  8. JeriWB says:

    The cover is certainly well done and it definitely makes me want to further explore Felicia's book.

    • Felicia Tatum says:

      Thank you!

  9. Good luck with the book Patricia. Never heard of paranormal romances before. Good idea:-)

    • Geek Girl says:

      I had never heard of it before either. I am learning something new all the time. 🙂

      • Yeap!! Felicia, did you invent the concept? There's a lot more to life than meets the eye. But would not be interested in a paranormal romance. What if you have one with a bad spirit:-)))

  10. Felicia Tatum says:

    Thank you 🙂 I think I'm very blessed to have discovered the love of writing so young. I think it's because I was such an avid reader, books just drew that part of me out.

    Writing is amazing, isn't it 🙂

  11. Nami says:

    "I just want to say thank you if you’ve read my book, thank you if you’re considering it, and I truly hope you enjoy!" I love the humility in writers. Another great interview!

    PS – Love the cover!
