~Try an Excerpt!~
The black mask is too close to my face.  At least I think it’s a mask.  Could be any number of things blocking my sight. But it’s affecting my equilibrium, as well as my ability to breathe.  I can’t get air in fast enough through the fabric, causing panic to claw its way up my throat.  I need to calm down.  Slow breath in, slow puff out.  Don’t let the panic get to you.  . I turn my head to the left, hoping that’ll allow more air to sneak in the sliver by my chin. Oh, that helped. Relaxing my shoulders I try and piece things together. Nothing so far.  Blank.  Empty memories.  The car I’m riding in turns, and my body, that had been rocking, is almost thrown off the narrow seat. It takes all the strength I have left to keep me from tumbling off. My back settles once we’ve completed the turn. Where are we? And more importantly, where are we going?  My body aches, like it was hit by something.  What am I missing?

I can just make out the tiny bit of light at the bottom of my mask, but not enough to see what’s just beyond it. Focus.  Focus on that light.  I try to keep my lids from closing, yet they are heavy, and itching, begging me to let them seal shut. Was I drugged? I close my eyes, and the tiny bit of light is forgotten.
~Meet Em!~ 
Em Perna is a sarcastic 35 year old with a penchant for hot pink hair.  She was born in sunny Florida, but has moved several times, while following her husband as he advances in his career. When she’s not writing, she’s kept quite busy by being a wife, a boo-boo kisser, a football team mom, a dog walker, teacher of ABC’s, home chef, chauffeur, and a Superhero’s personal assistant.


She’s an avid reader, but prefers a romance novel above all others.
Em will be awarding a $20 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn host.

    1. I love a escaping into a romance novel. I love the butterflies I feel when the two (or three) characters connect and fall in love. It's like you're 13 years old again, and that feeling when your secret crush walks by. When I started Grant Me I wasn't planning on the mystery being added into the book. But as I finished chapter one, I said to myself "huh...guess I'm going that route'. lol

    1. Hi! Just wanted to clear up about this excerpt. :) It may come across as being a 'dark' story. It's more suspenseful than anything. With some humor thrown in to make it lighter.

    1. LOL!!! I have 5 yr old twins. They refer to any injury (scratch/bruise) as a boo boo. And as I'm their mom and my kisses are magic (taking away the pain) I call myself a boo-boo kisser. Thanks for asking.
