The Sea Archer
by Jeny Heckman


GENRE: Paranormal Romance



Raven Hunter, a musical prodigy, flees to the Hawaiian Islands to pick up the pieces after her marriage to her manager collapses. Instead, she experiences extraordinary and unsettling events that are beyond her understanding.

Living in paradise, marine biologist, Finn Taylor has the unconscious but effortless ability to understand the needs of the animals he cares for. His playboy lifestyle is most men's fantasy. That is, until the night he meets the shy and elusive new island resident. Suddenly his life no longer feels like his own.

The attraction is undeniable. However, vastly contrasting lives, peculiar dreams, and an unbelievable proclamation that they could be the direct descendants of Poseidon and Apollo threaten to divide them forever. Will they accept their destiny and begin the quest of a lifetime or will they remain in their comfortable yet separate existence?



"Where's the one place you've never been?" Que asked, trying to keep her on track.

“Someplace you've always wanted to go to?" Wyatt asked. Enjoying herself, Raven turned pink.

"You'll think it's stupid."

"No, I won't," both said in unison.

"I've never been to Hawai‘i."

"Hawai‘i?" Que's brow furrowed. "That's here. Don't you wanna go to, like, the Bahamas or something? How have you not been to Hawai‘i?"

"Donovan always wanted to play the massive arenas and big cities, and for some unfathomable reason that didn't include the islands."

"You should do it then. Take some time, figure it out."

"What about my tour dates?"

"You'll get ‘em from, whoever, then call and cancel them. Hell, you can even interview new people to run the works while you're there. You're in the position to do that now, Rave. People would fall all over themselves to come to you. The point is to go away and figure it all out."
She bit her bottom lip and thought about all the problems this idea would bring until her brother spoke the next words.

"What're you afraid of Rave? What do you have lose?"





Five Reasons Why You Should Buy The Sea Archer?

What a fantastic question and one I've never been asked before!

Okay, so number one. I’m a new author. I suppose this could be good or bad. However, I think it's usually a good thing. Personally, I enjoy reading something from the ground up. I was a Diana Gabaldon fan before she was Outlander and it was a fun ride to go on with her! Not that I’m Diana Gabaldon, but I do have a lot of stories to share and am just getting started. I’ve been told I have a great ability to write dialogue, in a true-to-life way. Dialect and syntax are fun things to explore and I want my characters to speak like real people do, complete with awkward pauses and idiosyncrasies. So far, my characters have been a little removed from the norm or what’s expected of them and that’s deliberate because I love the little things that make people unique.

Number two, The Sea Archer is different. Many paranormal books are similar in subject matter. There's absolutely nothing wrong with those books or stories but things can become saturated. I believed the Greek gods would be fun because you don’t see them as much and if you do, they’re the actual Greek gods. So, I also wanted it to have a kind of Percy Jackson meets Nora Roberts way about it. Finally, I liked the idea that the characters don’t know they’re special or even believe anything they've been tasked to do. I mean it makes a quest harder, doesn’t it? You must believe in a quest to thwart it, so already there’s conflict.

Number three, the books of The Heaven & Earth Series build off each other. The Sea Archer is a romance with paranormal elements rather than a straight up paranormal romance and that’s intentional. I want this series to take the reader on a journey. The characters, as I stated above, don’t necessarily believe in quests or Greek gods. It’s like your own grandma saying to you over breakfast, "You’re the descendent of Athena. Now go do some stuff to free her and all the other Greek gods from the depths of hell because if you don’t, they’ll unleash the last remaining evils upon the earth." You might roll your eyes, pat her on the head or possibly call for a psych evaluation, if you discerned she was really serious. So, there’s a significant level of unknown, then as the series progresses, it enlightens you as a reader just like it illuminates the characters. First, you learn the basics, then a bloom of understanding happens, and then you grow more proficient. Each story has its journey, but the series is the reader becoming proficient in the quest.

Number four, you get to learn about a fascinating topic. When I was younger, I remember learning about the Greek gods and as I said before they can be overwhelming. There are so many crazy stories about adultery, incest, trickery, and epic battles, to say nothing of all the weird names, categories, and occupations. What's a primordial versus a deity versus a personification? My daughter, Paisley, just returned from Greece and it was so interesting hearing about her guides there and the people she spoke to. There are so many that believe in the gods as a kind of religion and still hold yearly festivals to honor them. That’s really cool. What I love about the Greek gods is that they are very flawed and clueless. They are supposed to be these massively omnipotent beings, yet Zeus can barely think outside his pants, Hera, see past her jealousy, Athena takes everything too seriously and Hermes, nothing at all seriously.

Finally, number five the story and the series is empowering. Unfortunately, I can’t go into too much detail about how it’s empowering but in some ways, it’s not quite what you’ll expect and I’ll just leave it at that.

Thank you, thank you to the "Fabulous Brunette," for hosting me today, I really loved that question! And thank you to the readers, I hope my answers were fun, and they have persuaded you to give The Sea Archer a chance and invest some time in it. I’m so grateful you stopped by today. Cheers!
