Tour: Beneath the Starry Sky by Jessica E. Subject (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to author, Jessica E. Subject, who is joining us on her book tour for Beneath the Starry Sky!

Shooting Stars

Thank you for hosting me as part of my blog tour!

Shooting stars, as you might be able to tell from the cover and the title are an important part of Beneath the Starry Sky. Here are five facts about them:

  1. Shooting star is the familiar term for the trail of light a meteoroid causes as it enters our atmosphere.
  2. When the Earth travels through a trail of debris left behind from a comet, we are likely to observe multiple shooting stars (aka a meteor shower).
  3. The meteor showers are given names based on the constellation in the sky from which they appear to have originated.
  4. There are several annual meteor showers, but the best, Perseids, occurs in Mid-August.
  5. Some meteoroids are so large that they make a crackling noise at the pass through our atmosphere.


Now tell me, do you have any memorable “shooting star” watching moments?


Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.
                                                                                           Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.

When I was a kid, my grandfather was driving me some place. I was early in the morning and still dark. We saw a shooting star and both said, "Oh, look!" at the same time. And then we smiled at each other.

That was a sweet and magical moment.

Thanks,

I don't have any good memories I just always remember watching for them so I could make a wish, also for some reason when I was a kid I use to think if you saw a shooting star you'd get to meet Jimmy cricket... hehe I know it was silly!

The only time I've ever seen a falling star was when my husband and I were driving REALLY early one morning to go fishing with my dad. It was probably one of the most beautiful sights I'd seen the the night sky. We didn't catch any fish that morning but I was good with that. Seeing the falling star made getting up that early worth it!

I have never seen a shooting star though I used to lay out under the night sky when we were camping hoping that I would.

What an interesting twist on a romance and special that you are promoting the awareness of this disease.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

@Savannah - That's really cute! When I'm out waiting for the show to start, I usually hear the crickets. :)

@Susan W. - I'd say that was definitely worth it. :)

@Tamara Hoffa & Sophia Rose - There are many meteor showers coming up starting in April, the biggest being in August. I hope you'll be able to catch them. :)

@Tore - Thanks you so much! :)

I've heard about alopecia, but a heroine with it is a first for me. It will be interesting to see how Josh handles it.

I don't have a special shooting star memory-I usually fall asleep every time I try to stay up to watch them.

Thanks so much for the info and the giveaway.
