Jewel Adams: Digital Writer Spotlight

bookshelf.jpgNovelist Jewel Adams is the first writer to be promoted on both Off the Bookshelf and Wattpad–two community writing sites that frequently spotlight writers on eBookNewser.

Here’s more about Adams’ book, The Wishing Hour: “Celine Anderson lives an average solitary life, sticking to routine, never taking chances, and never experiencing true love. All of this changes when a handsome immortal enters her life. She has never laid eyes on the man before, but she somehow knows him and instantly trusts him completely. Placing her life in his hands, Celine is taken on an unexpected journey and learns of an ancient prophecy she is to take part in. And her immortal guardian is intent on protecting her against those who would see her fail.”

Here’s a brief excerpt from The Wishing Hour:

Every time he touches her, the mark of the Ki Talimai, the soul’s bond, glows and tingles in his palm. Now, as he stands holding her in his arms, the eternal mark burns. He lowers his dark head and presses his forehead against hers, inhaling her rain-enhanced scent. He smells a mixture of jasmine, vanilla, and cinnamon pine on her skin. He knows her scent well because it matches his own. It calls to him as strongly as her senses. He knows her emotions intimately–her joys, her fears, her sorrows, her grief, her loneliness. He knows her. Yet she doesn’t truly know the real him, nor does she know the full measure of his powers.
