Inheritance by S K Whiteside
“Talk about hell on earth…”
Sekhmet’s life was pretty good; you know for a goddess. Her job was simple – kill those that sought to go against the creator. It was a job she was good at but unfortunately got a little too carried away with when she almost single handedly wiped out mankind. For her penance she has spent the last thousand years serving as one of the Guardians; a group of immortals that protect mankind and led by the Goddess Isis – who kind of had her own anger issues.
The Azura, a league of immortal bad asses, are literally trying to bring hell on earth and with it, Set – the banished God and ruler of the Makhaut. For the first time in history and with the help of the Makhaut, they may actually pull it off. Even the Guardians are at a loss.
In the Hail Mary of all attempts to save the world Isis, now going by Isira, sends Sekhmet to New Orleans, to find and protect the “Key” but when it is determined that a traitor lies among the Guardians, Sekhmet, now going by the name of Syn, is forced to seek help in the most unlikely of places…her least favorite person and fellow Guardian…Malachi.
S.K. Whiteside is a Mythic Fiction writer of Contemporary Urban & Historical Fantasy. As a full time Mental Health Therapist, she started writing in Academia but decided writing about things on the “other side of the veil” was a lot more interesting. Living in the Paranormal capital of the world makes it fairly easy for her to come up with characters, many of which are based on of real personas in her life that she can’t help but carry over into her writing.
Author interview with S K Whiteside:
Tell us about your book/series. What makes it/them worth reading?
Inheritance: World of the Guardians is the first in a 4 to 6 planned book series. Its premise is based in Egyptian Mythology but not limited there. In it you have everything from Vampires, Werewolves, Gods, Goddesses, Shifters, Demons, etc. No creature of folklore is safe. I like to think it’s different from what all the rage in vampirism is right now. Mine don’t sparkle. *shrug*
How long have you been writing and what inspired you to do it?
I’d like to tell you I have been writing all of my life but that’s bull. I wasn’t 10 years old saying “I am going to be a writer.” I actually went outside and played from time to time. Then again if you count school assignments then yes, I have been writing a majority of my life. No seriously I have only been writing fiction for a few years. I had always been an avid reader and then one day while in Graduate School a professor suggested I look into getting published because I wrote well. I figured “why not?” Somehow I think she meant academically. I’m sure she would appreciate it anyway…she was my Multi-Cultural Counseling Professor.
What do you think causes people’s enduring fascination with vampires?
The vampire is everything we want to be. Strong, Immortal, Indestructible, Desirable, and lives life with no rules. Who WOULDN’T want that?
What are you reading right now? Would you recommend it?
My TBR list is EXTREMELY backed up right now. I have started about 30 books that have been left unfinished. I keep meaning to go back and finish reading but life and writing keep getting in the way. My first priority on the TBR list is the latest Terry Goodkind novel. I am a huge Legend of the Seeker fan.
The vampires are attacking! Grab the first thing you see to your right and hit them with it! What was it? And how do you think you did in the ensuing fight?
Portable Hard Drive. I am vampire food but at least they will be entertained with stories when they are done with me!
The afore mentioned vampire attack didn’t go so well and you were bitten by the vampire…now what?
Party like its 1999? And 2099, and 2199…
In the event of a zombie apocalypse what item would you make sure that you took with you to your underground safety bunker? (we will presume that your family are already safely in the bunker!)
Chainsaw. The guy in the zombie movies with the chainsaw always lives.
You are planning an awesome dinner party. Which 3 celebrities/fictional characters/historical figures (past or present) would you add to your guest list?
J.K. Rowling, Bram Stoker, and Mircea from the Cassandra Palmer series. *rawr*
Can you give us three, scandalous facts about yourself you wouldn’t even want your own mother to know about 😉
I always go for the dirt…
I write paranormal erotica under a pen name, I hate candy, and I’m not a virgin (but keep that last one on the low…)
Where can readers find your books?
For ebooks you can go to Amazon here:
For print you can go wherever books are sold and if they don’t have my books there…DEMAND THEM!!!
Is there anything you would like to say to your readers?
Thank you and as long as you keep reading I will keep writing!
