We are excited to be kicking off the MOONSET Blog Tour with a great guest post from the author himself, ladies and gentlemen I give you Scott Tracey….

SCOTT’S MORE PRIZED POSSESSIONS:

20130322_155551

The "eye" paperweight - A friend sent this to me several years ago, in honor of finishing Witch Eyes. It's a page from a French novel in which someone has drawn an eye in pen and then set the whole thing under a piece of glass as a paperweight. I keep it on my desk at all times.

20130322_155618The autobiography - I wrote this when I was seven or eight, and sadly, my work has gone downhill since then. We had an old typewriter in our basement that I'd used to write it out, and then I even went ahead and illustrated it. I don't remember why it was so important that I write my autobiography at age seven, but whatever. It's a masterpiece. ;)

Candles - I love the smell of sandalwood, so I always have a sandalwood candle on my desk. Because sometimes I'm just having a bad day, and the smell makes me feel better.

My iPod - Seriously, there is something to be said for being able to tune out the world and listen to Shirley Manson at the drop of a hat.

Skeleton key - I keep a skeleton key on my desk that I got from Disney World (and the Pirates of the Caribbean) almost fifteen years ago. It's my good luck writing charm.

20130322_155449Engraved pen - When I graduated high school, one of my teachers gave all the seniors in his class an engraved pen. I only ever use the pen for really important things (like signing with my agent, or signing my first book deal), but I always keep it close at hand, just in case.

ABOUT THE BOOK

13516097Moonset
Legacy of Moonset #1
Release Date: April 8th, 2013
Publisher: Flux

Moonset, a coven of such promise . . . Until they turned to the darkness.

After the terrorist witch coven known as Moonset was destroyed fifteen years ago—during a secret war against the witch Congress—five children were left behind, saddled with a legacy of darkness.
Sixteen-year-old Justin Daggett, son of a powerful Moonset warlock, has been raised alongside the other orphans by the witch Congress, who fear the children will one day continue the destruction their
parents started.

A deadly assault by a wraith, claiming to work for Moonset’s most dangerous disciple, Cullen Bridger, forces the five teens to be evacuated to Carrow Mill. But when dark magic wreaks havoc in their new hometown, Justin and his siblings are immediately suspected. Justin sets out to discover if someone is trying to frame the Moonset orphans . . . or if Bridger has finally come out of hiding to reclaim the legacy of Moonset. He learns there are secrets in Carrow Mill connected to Moonset’s origins, and keeping the orphans safe isn’t the only reason the Congress relocated them .. .

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Scott Tracey Author Photo

Scott Tracey is a YA author who lived on a Greyhound for a month, wrote his illustrated autobiography at the age of six, and barely survived Catholic school (and definitely not for the reasons you might think).

He is the author of WITCH EYES, chosen as one of Amazon’s Best LGBT Books of 2011, as well as an ALA Popular Paperback in the Forbidden Romance category. The final book in the WITCH EYES trilogy,
PHANTOM EYES, will be released in the fall of 2013.

He is also the author of MOONSET, a new series which will be released April 8, 2013, as well as a contributor to the SHADOWHUNTERS & DOWNWORLDERS anthology, edited by Cassandra Clare.

His career highlights include: accidentally tripping a panic alarm which led to nearly being shot by the police; attacked in a drive-thru window by a woman wielding a baked potato, and once moving cross country for a job only to quit on the second day.

His gifts can be used for good or evil, but rather than picking a side, he strives for BOTH (in alternating capacity) for his own amusement.

  1. *looks around* I'm on a Moonset post, so I'm going with the children of the Moonset coven! :-D

    Also, Scott should totally illustrate his other books. He drew that flower like a boss.
