Angela Corbett Eternal Starling Launch Party

08 Dec, 2011 by in Heather Gardner Photography 13 comments

Last night author Angela Corbett launched her book Eternal Starling at the King’s English book store in Salt Lake City. The Children’s Room was packed to full capacity and by the time I got there we were lined up standing outside. She had cake pops, candy bars and m&m cookies for treats as well as a raffle for signed books, bags and jewelry. Spotted in the huge audience were authors Brodi Ashton Everneath and Lani WoodlandIndelible, as well as fellow book bloggers from LDSWBR and CubicleBlindnes. Congrats Angie!

The surreal part for me was seeing the author photo I took for her printed on the back dust jacket, on a poster outside the book shop and on shelves in the store. Thanks you so much to Lani and Angela for making one of my dreams come true! Click here to visit the official Heather Gardner photography website or view all Angela’s author photos here.

Blog Tour and Giveaway- Eternal Starling

Fire and Ice is today’s stop on the Eternal Starling Blog Tour hosted by Once Upon A Twilight.

Eternal Starling

Emblem of Eternity Book 1
Hardcover 320 pages
Published by: Pendrell Publishing
Expected Pulication:December 6, 2011
ISBN 982729793
4.5 starsA love so strong, even eternity can’t separate them.

Evie Starling has lived a relatively uneventful life hanging out with friends, gossiping about boys, and driving her 1966 Mustang. All of that changes when she moves to Gunnison, Colorado, to start college and meets two mysterious men.

For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie—but they each have their own reasons for wanting to be with her. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she’s not the person she thought she was. Soon, Evie finds herself in the middle of an age-old battle between the Amaranthine Society—the soul protectors, and the Daevos Resistance—the soul destroyers. With a past she doesn’t understand, and a future rife with danger, Evie has to decide who she can trust. But Alex and Emil aren’t the only ones who want Evie, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war.

There are so many things I love about Eternal Starling…where to start? The cover, the author, the writing. Evie Starling is about to start her freshman year of college in Gunnison, Colorado when she becomes lost hiking in the mountains. As independent and head strong as she is she does not want to admit she needs help getting back to her car when Alex Knight finds her and volunteers to help. But Alex is arrogant and won’t take no for an answer, matching her stubbornness. Thus starts the vortex of attraction and pull between the two of them. Ales is everything she could ever dream of, independently wealthy, graduated early and working as a volunteer for charity. He’s romantic and sparks fly fast , but then Alex puts the breaks on it all claiming Evie is in danger and pretty much disappears from the scene.
Just as Evie is getting used to the idea of their strange break up, she’s siting in the student center one day and an equally gorgeous and mysterious man comes up and kisses her out of the blue. Could life get any weirder? Emil Stone makes no apologies for his forward public move and Evie finds that he’s a welcome diversion from her broken heart. Things get complicated when Alex returns and the of them are are caught in a battle of wills that spans centuries. Evie is just beginning to learn that no one is quite what they seem and her heart is pulled in two directions.
With a protagonist who can stand up for herself and two men that both have ultimate potential, I found myself eating up every second of Eternal Starling. I love that the author Angela Corbett put so much of her self into the book with little details like a 1966 purple Mustang GT and 4 wheeling on sand dunes. Evie has a strong relationship with her parents who are invested in making sure she’s safe and taken care of. Things get particularly interesting when both Emil and Alex unexpectedly turn up at her family camping trip. I’m so glad this is a trilogy!! Can not wait to see what happens and I gurantee I will be reading book two. At this point in the game I can see her reasoning for wanting to be with both Mr. Knight and Mr. Stone. Angela rocked this as her debut novel. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Photography Friday- Author Photos for Angela Corbett

26 Aug, 2011 by in Heather Gardner Photography 1 comment

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to meet Angela Corbett ,
author of Eternal Starling, a YA paranormal romance, coming 12-6 from Pendrell Publishing. We made for the mountains to take her author photos and connected with our inner children via the streams. Angela is beautiful and awesome, not to mention the fact that she saved me and my camera from falling into a waterfall during the shoot! I can not wait to read her series. Special thanks to Indelible author Lani Woodland for hooking us up. Lani took the cover photo for Eternal Starling which was revealed last Sunday on Cublicle Blindness. Isn’t it lovely?
