Plunge In to the Worlds of Temi Black

Plunge Into the Worlds of Temi Black

 

What would you do if you found that your whole life had been leading up to this moment…

John is simply a visitor in the mountains, who comes for his annual fishing trip.  He crosses paths with Temi, a local resident, on three occasions: twice when she is a small child, and once when she is in her teens.  But these meetings occur for John all within a space of days!

John and Temi now meet up in the modern day.  They begin to discover how their timelines are connected, and how their destinies might unfold.

Between Two Worlds is a fantasy realism story about a hybrid breed of people who have the ability to change shape into mountain lions.  They can also travel in time, but they are governed by a unique set of limitations.

The people of the mountain lion clan live in the Blue Mountains of Oregon. They reside in the foothills of Picpic Mountain, meaning “cat” in the Cayuse language.  Their power is rooted in the heart of this mountain, and it diminishes when they travel too far away.

Members of the mountain lion clan believe that their brief travels though time are spiritual in nature. Temi exhibits exceptional power by traveling without warning as a child.  Her mother panics and moves Temi away from the mountains, only to return several years later.

There are unique “rules” to these people, such as what happens when a member of the lion clan breeds with a human, how it works when one jumps forward, or backward, in time, how the young come in to their powers, what happens when they stay away from the mountains, and even what happens when they die.

Between Two Worlds also has some great cliffhangers, and while wrapping up the story, leave you wanting to know more…

Guest Post and Giveaway from Jodi Hockinson – Author of Between Two Worlds

Between Two WorldsTemi stood in stunned silence at the sight before her. She had finally come face to face with the man of her dreams….literally. Having slipped through time as a child, she had seen this man on three occasions. Destiny now seemingly fulfilled, this man she recognized from her past travels through time was standing right in front of her, in a small general store, at the foot of the mountain that she called home. But Temi has a secret. She is inextricably linked to the spirit that resides in the heart of the mountain. The time she had spent shifting into her other life as a mountain lion had brought her even closer to the mountain spirit, and she wondered how this man might be part of divine will.

John has gone to the same fishing cabin every year for the past ten years. But this year’s trip is different – he receives a mysterious visit from a little girl. He forgets about the event, until a string of paranormal occurrences unfold, compelling him through an incredible exploration of his past, present and future as he moves forward to meet his destiny.

Find out how John finds his soul mate, and how the pair joins forces to accomplish their future together.

Please join me in welcoming Jodi Hockinson to The Book’s the Thing. Jodi is going to talk to us about her choice of genre, and how she goes about world-building.

Science fiction and fantasy have been my favorite form of entertainment all of my life, so it was not a stretch when I switched, from writing about nutrition and special diets, to writing a story of fantasy realism.  My most favorite movie was Bladerunner, and I have a long list of favorites!

I wanted to come up with a story that hasn’t been done, with a new set of rules that would be both interesting and feasible (from a sci-fi/fantasy point of view).  Writing fiction is more fun, in ways, than non-fiction, but it takes a phenomenal amount of focus and perseverance to keep continuity intact, especially when jumping from one time to another.

There is nothing more satisfying than when a story comes together.  Although there will definitely be more diet books in my future, I can’t wait to write the next novel!

BOOK REVIEW – BETWEEN TWO WORLDS BY JODI HOCKINSON

Between Two Worlds is a fantasy novel containing time travel and shape shifting. It is the first book of the Lion Clan Series and it focuses on two characters named, Temi and John. Temi is a wonderful girl that is destined to be the leader of the Mountain Lion Clan. They are a hybrid of shapeshifters. Once her mother discovers Temi’s powers, she moves her away from the mountains to protect her. When they return after ten years of absence, Temi begins to learn more about herself and the Mountain in order to find her destiny.

There is also a mystical necklace in question that is from the heart of the mountain. Temi also has the ability to travel in time. As she does, she meets John several of times, causing her to believe that there is something more to it than meets the eye. When she does eventually meet him in the modern day, they both realize that they are both destined for bigger things.

I found the story to be quite compelling. The plot was very intriguing. The fact that it contained paranormal activity within a time travel experience, made the novel unique. The literary standard was up to speed. I barely noticed any editing issues and enjoyed the steady flow of the pace. The main characters were well invested and there was enough character development for both to be just as relatable and interesting to read.

I did feel that the added naturistic touch in the content was a very well thought out plan. It added more depth and a realistic approach to the spirit of the Mountain and everything that was connected to it. I think the only thing that could improve this novel would be less repetitive information. Otherwise, I really enjoyed reading it.

I highly recommend this book to young adult/ fantasy lovers that enjoy shape shifting and time travel stories.

Many thanks to Michael King for the terrific spot on your website, and for a wonderfully entertaining event!

Many thanks to Michael King and the folds at Inspired Mic yesterday evening!  Following is the great spot that Mike posted to promote the event:

Jodi Hockinson

Jodi Hockinson is the author of Between Two Worlds, a fantasy novel of time travel and shape shifting.  Book I in the Lion Clan series, available on Amazon in paperback, kindle and audible.  

This is a fantasy realism story that takes place in the Blue Mountains of Oregon on three different timelines, in the sixties, the eighties, and then the late nineties, which from the viewpoint of the story, is the current timeline.

Temi Black is part of a hybrid breed of people called the Lion Clan who have the ability to change shape into mountain lions. They can also visit the past or present, but with limited abilities once they arrive, and no control over where they are going when they travel.

The entire group lives in the foothills of Picpic mountain, meaning “cat” in the Cayuse language.  Their power is rooted in the heart of this mountain, and it diminishes when they travel too far away.

The people of the mountain lion clan believe that their brief travels though time are spiritual in nature. Temi exhibits exceptional power by traveling without warning as a child.  Her mother panics and moves her away from the mountains. 

The other main character, John, is just a visitor in the mountains, who comes for his annual fishing trip, and crosses paths with Temi on three occasions, twice when she is a small child, and once when she is in her teens.

John and Temi meet up in the modern day, and begin to discover how their timelines are connected, and how their destinies might unfold.

There are unique “rules” to these people, such as what happens when a member of the lion clan clan breeds with a human, how it works when one jumps forward, or backward, in time, how the young come in to their powers, what happens when they stay away from the mountains, and even what happens when they die.There are a couple of great cliffhangers, while wrapping up the story, leave you wanting to know more… In the upcoming sequel, scheduled to release before Christmas, we will learn more of the story of Temi’s parents, more about the next generation that has grown up since the nineties, why Temi’s mother panicked and took Temi away from the mountains, and how this special group of people came into existence.

Between Two Worlds is Jodi’s eighth book, and her first work of fiction.  Her other books include special interest diet cookbooks for people with gout and ulcerative colitis, a tutorial about investing Tax Certificates in Florida, and hosted a Cooking DVD for persons with gout.  She holds degrees in social sciences/history, liberal arts and nutrition.  Jodi is also a professional narrator, and is the voice of over two dozen books on audible.com, including three books in the Covington Chronicles series, by Mary Lou Cheatham.
