Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Guest Post and Giveaway Allusive Aftershock by Susan Griscom


What happens when a major earthquake changes life as you know it and the boy you thought you hated ends up saving you? Three times!

Courtland Reese is the guy everyone hates and makes fun of because … well, he is weird. He communicates with animals. Strange or interesting, seventeen-year-old Adela Castielle can’t quite figure out, but when he saves her from being trampled by her own horse, she begins to understand him a little better and wants to learn more about him.

But, Max--her best friend/dream guy/someday-to-be-her-husband-only-he-doesn’t-know-it-yet--hates Courtland with a passion. Adela wants to know why, except neither boy is talking. 

When Max leaves her stranded in his parents' wine cave with his worst enemy, Courtland, after what the experts are calling a “megathrust” earthquake, Adela starts to question her loyalty to Max as steamy kisses in a dark damp cellar only fuel her emotions with more conflict. 

But does she really have time to worry about that when fire, destruction and mayhem surround her?

Finding the perfect guy

When Mythical Books asked me about finding the perfect guy, I had to really think about that. Is there such a thing? Only in romance novels, LOL. I think that’s why I write. I love dreaming up the perfect man for each story. Sure, he’ll always have some flaw, but it’s usually a flaw that makes him adorable. 

I think, for me, the perfect guy is someone who lets me be me. Someone who makes me laugh. Someone who makes me feel cherished and loved but also sure of myself. Someone who supports me in the things I love to do. I like a man who can feel sure about himself but not too cocky. Don’t get me wrong, self-confidence is very important and sexy, but there are limits and I like a man who is smart enough to know when to step down when the time and situation requires it. 

I love a man who knows how to dress and can look sexy in just about anything he puts on or takes off. 

The perfect man is someone who has feelings and isn’t afraid to show them. Someone who treats me with respect and love, as an equal but also knows how to be tender and caring at the right moments and knows how to be romantic, because without romance, life would be very boring. 

About the author:

Susan Griscom daydreams often. And sometimes her daydreams interfere with her daydreams not to mention real life. Because, let’s face it, her character’s lives are so much more exciting.

Sometimes it’s young adult or new adult or just plain old mainstream fiction and sometimes it’s paranormal romance, where her playing field delves into a different milieu than the usual vampires and werewolves. Some day she might write about fangs and fur, but for now she prefers sticking to strong heroes and heroines confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and abilities beyond the norm, mixed with some steamy romance to get the blood boiling.

Susan lives in the Sierra Foothills in Northern California with her very romantic husband, her small yippy dog, Riley, and her humongous black cat, Saké. Her family consists of his and hers; four wonderful sons and one beautiful daughter, and seven grand angels.

Susan loves when a story takes hold and pulls her into the fantasy, that’s magic.
