The Sea Archer by Jeny Heckman Book Tour and Giveaway

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?"


What inspired you to write this book?

I was inspired to write this story because I wanted to read something a little different from the same vampire, werewolf or wizard story. Don’t get me wrong I love those stories, and some are favorite books. However, I was looking for something different to read, and wrote one instead. I also enjoy Greek mythology. I was first introduced to it in my teenage years and thought it would be fun to go back to it.

What exciting story are you working on next?

Right now, I’m working on book two of the Heaven & Earth Series and it’s about half done. I can’t tell you too much about it without a spoiler alert. However, that characters gain more knowledge both in the modern world and the Greek world. The story unfolds when the Greek world touches the modern one a little more.

What 5 words would you use to describe your main characters?

Hmm, five words to describe my main characters
Raven: beautiful, scared, loving, exploited, curious
Finn: sexy, in control, arrogant, passionate, and damaged

How do you react to a bad review of your book?

Reacting to a bad review. Well, I’ve only gotten one, knock on wood, and I must say it hurt. You want people to understand what you write and love it as much as you do. When that doesn’t happen, it hurts. However, someone once told me you can’t take reviews too personally. Not all books are everyone’s cup of tea. Your vision of the story might not correlate with another person’s filters or vision, so you can’t take it personally. I also received another great piece of advice for the editing phase and that’s if someone is proofreading your book and you must explain something technical to them than you haven’t done your job yet. 

What are four things you can’t live without?

Things I couldn’t live without. Family and friends would of course be first. I have a very loving and devoted family and I wouldn’t give them up for anything, unless I’m writing, then they are on their own. (kidding, mostly). Some form of computer, internet and electricity. You can write pen and paper, but I make a lot of mistakes and it’s easier to edit. Finally, books! I’ve been a reader since my mom read to me in the womb. I love books across all genres and of course have favorites but books in general stimulate creativity, knowledge and vocabulary, all of which further you in life.

The best book/s you ever read?

Best books I’ve ever read. That is so hard! I have favorite authors and love their collective works. I believe the one series that includes many of the genres all together is probably Diana Gabaldon’s, Outlander. However, I want to clarify I started reading those books after book three and it has really been exciting witnessing the evolution of her success. 

Anything else you might want to add? 

I’d just like to say thanks for reading. I sincerely hope you enjoy The Sea Archer. Having others as interested in your story and characters is exciting. I’d also like to thank Edgar’s Books for hosting me today, I appreciated and loved every moment!
