Clean Teen Publishing is proud to present Lightning Sealed, the second installment of Lila Felix's The Lucent Series.


"No matter what his words conveyed, Theo would leave me soon. It was just a matter of time."
The Fray is calling Theo. Every day, the voices get louder. Every minute, he gets pulled closer. Every second, their love is tested. Their life is a constant question of who they can trust and who they can't.
Sanctum, Theo's brother and enemy, stalks them like a predator, waiting for his chance to pounce.
Theo will leave Colby soon to do what he, as the Eidolon, was born to do. He can't deny the yearning in his heart to go, but he can't find it in his heart to leave.
Colby will be left with a decision. She can wither like the mates of Eidolon before her or she can go after the Synod, the women who murdered her grandmother, while Theo is gone.
With Theo missing and Colby desperate, Sanctum is only too eager to fill in…


Interview With Lila:




Q: What inspired your Lucent series?

A cliché as it sounds, I had a dream about Colby. She was flashing between countries, telling me each time where she was going and chastising me that I couldn’t teleport like she could.



Q: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I realized I wanted to be a writer when there was a story in my heart that demanded to be told.



Q: How long does it usually take you to write a book?

Usually, I can complete a bare bones manuscript in six to eight weeks. It is raw and in desperate need of edits and beta readers, but the first draft is done.



Q: Do you have an interesting writing quirk? 

I don’t know if it is a quirk, but lately, I have to listen to non-music sounds when I’m writing. Listening to music while I’m writing doesn’t work for me anymore. I have to listen to rain or thunderstorms—not whales—whale sounds make me cry. No, seriously, they do. But in order to get into the mood to write, I have to listen to music. I’m kind of weird, now that I write it all out.



Q: What are your current projects?

Right now, I’m working on the third of the Lucent series. I’m also working on Hip Whip (Love and Skate #7) and a stand-alone called Meet Me Halfway.


Q: What authors have inspired you?

I’m inspired by Neil Gaiman, Connor Franta, Rebecca Ethington and Anne Eliot.


Q: Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

Write, write, and write some more. Read, read, and then write some more. It is as simple and excruciating as that.


Q: Do you have anything you'd like to say to your fans?

I’m so grateful to my fans and anyone who takes a chance on reading my books. I would be nowhere without my readers and am eternally thankful.



Excerpt:


Ari concurred. “It was strange, wasn’t it?”
Finally, my best friend joined the party.
“But that’s not why you called me here. You called me to see if I’ve been keeping company with someone who died over half a hundred years ago. Sorry, no corpses in my closet. Unless he’s a zombie. Double-eeew.”
I could play the ditsy blonde ‘til the cows came home.
“Did you see that episode of The Walking Dead where just the torso of that woman was crawling around? I almost threw up.”
Ari talking about The Walking Dead making her throw up was the closest thing to the truth this room had ever seen. She did throw up during every episode—but still was a loyal watcher.
“Dang it, Colby. You know what we are talking about! We mean Torrent.”
I loved driving people so mad that they gave up their own secret information.
“Torrent? Theo’s brother? He’s been gone since we were kids. You found him?”
I was aggravating myself at that point.
“Colby, I warn you. Any more of this mindless chatter and we will retaliate.”
“How? My mother is gone and you’ve already taken care of my grandmother. And Ari—I don’t even really like her.”
The anger could be seen gurgling in Regina’s eyes. It made the crap bubble brown where the white used to be.
“Has he traveled to the fray yet? Has he worried you with how long he was gone? Did you think you may have lost him forever? Did you think for once that his mission is more important than your love?”
“Wait!” Ari stood and I could see the wheels turning in her head. Every once in a while she got her act together.
“What?” I stood with her, thinking it was just another cooky distraction.
“The mate of the Eidolon falls under the jurisdiction of the Eidolon only. She doesn’t have to answer any of
your questions.”

My face flushed. She just let the bird out of the cage.

Clean Teen Publishing is excited to announce the release of Digital Horizon, book three in Sherry D. Ficklin's #Hacker series.



Reeling from the death of her father, Farris is on the verge of losing everything. When an unexpected offer lands her a summer internship inside a secret government think tank filled with hackers, she leaps at the opportunity to get some answers. Someone has done the unthinkable, penetrating a hack-proof system and stealing vital military intel--which may have lead to her father's death. 

Finding those responsible will mean teaming up with old enemies, trusting strangers with secrets of their own, and sacrificing what little happiness she's managed to cling to, all in the name of revenge. But when the trail leads her deep into the dark web and a hacker capable of launching an attack on US soil, Farris and her team will have to go further than they thought possible to bring him to justice and avoid all out war.
