Friday Feature: Extracted Blog Tour




I couldn't be happier to be part of the Extracted blog tour because I can tell you that Tyler Jolley and Sherry Ficklin are truly awesome people. And to prove their awesomeness, they have put together a video for you today of all the outtakes from their blog tour vlogs.

So, here it is:





Welcome to the war. The Tesla Institute is a premier academy that trains young time travelers called Rifters. Created by Nicola Tesla, the Institute seeks special individuals who can help preserve the time stream against those who try to alter it. The Hollows is a rogue band of Rifters who tear through time with little care for the consequences. Armed with their own group of lost teens--their only desire to find Tesla and put an end to his corruption of the time stream. Torn between them are Lex and Ember, two Rifters with no memories of their life before joining the time war. When Lex's girlfriend dies during a mission, the only way he can save her is to retrieve the Dox, a piece of tech which allows Rifters to re-enter their own timeline without collapsing the time stream. But the Dox is hidden deep within the Telsa Institute, which means Lex must go into the enemy camp. It's there he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen from them both comes flooding back. Now armed with the truth of who they are, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them both again.


Tyler H. Jolley is a sci-fi/fantasy author and full-time orthodontist, periodontist (see: Overachiever). He divides his spare time between writing, reading, mountain biking, and camping with his family.
Sherry D. Ficklin is a full-time writer and internet radio show host with more mouth then good sense. She has a serious book addiction, but continually refuses treatment, much to her husband’s chagrin.
Tyler and Sherry met one fateful day and bonded over their love for books, science fiction, and donuts. Their first co-written novel came shortly after. Now, they still do all those other things, but also go to various steampunk conventions and events under the guise of ‘research’. They can often be found lurking on the Lost Imperials Facebook page or over on the official website, www.thelostimperials.com.


And because Tyler and Sherry are so amazing, they have a giveaway for you too!

  4. The bloopers were hysterical, and the book sounds fascinating. I've always wanted a writing partner, and if I ever get one, I sure hope we get along that well. Wishing huge success for Extracted! :-)

    1. Unless he threatens them with root canals if they don't read his books. ;) No, I'm just kidding. Tyler wouldn't do that. He might be the tallest guy I've ever met though, so he's probably intimidating despite how nice he is.

  6. Ahh, that's great. How fun and the story sounds very cool. Nicola Tesla is one of those characters from history that just needs to be in stories. I can't wait to read this.

  14. I am not sure how you find time in your day to write, edit and read 3 books at once! You are an inspiration - I have been trying to read more, but it is difficult. I think I need to start multi-tasking:)
