Bloodlines series tour with Lyndsay Ann Kendal



Hey, peeps! Please join me in welcoming author Lyndsay Ann Kendal to my blog. She's currently promoting her latest works in her Bloodlines series, and is here to give us a little insight into why she writes "dark and gothic novels."

Hi everyone,

Thank you for having me here today, it’s great.

I wasn’t to sure what to talk about, until my friend was asked a question about me from her cousin. She said to me “Your books are very dark and rather gothic, are you like that, or is it just an interest?” So I thought I’d answer that.

I myself am very dark, morbid, but happy. I love all things gothic, weird, supernatural. I have always had an interest in the darker side of things. For example – For years I’ve wanted to try and get my hands on a very old witchcraft books. You know the sort you hear about that are handwritten and full of secrets. Some people say they don’t exist, but I believe differently. I wouldn’t want the white magic ones, all full of love spells and healing rituals and the like. I want the deepest, blackest, most extreme black magic book I can find, and if anyone is wondering...
Would I play with it? Oh yes!
Would I be scared? Not really, nothing scares me to be honest, so I’d have to say I would be more intrigued than frightened.
Would you run if something happened? No! What’s the point of running from the things you want to understand? If you’re gonna run, why do it in the first place?
Would you try and summon someone or something? Definitely. I would try and summon the demon I have used in my trilogy. His name is Eligos and according to King Solomon and Religion, he is a Grand Duke of Hell. There isn’t much known about him, and I would love to find out more. He fascinates me. So much so, I actually have his demonic seal tattooed on my left shoulder blade. (Yes I’m obsessed lol).
I love everything to do with the ‘Occult’ and I have heard people have had terrible and terrifying experiences when they have played around with it. Most won’t go into details as they say it frightened them so much. I know of some who have turned to religion afterwards to try and feel safe and protected.  I have crazy beliefs so I don’t think I could do that, but I understand why these people did and I respect them for it. Everyone likes to feel safe at times.
I personally would love to experience that, maybe I’m crazy, but I wouldn’t like to be any different.
Some of my friends get a little freaked out sometimes and wonder what the hell must go on inside my head. The truth is, half the time, I don’t know. I have that many things running through my mind, all at the same time, that in the end, I give up trying to explain how passionate and deeply I feel about these types of things to people.

Having these interests helps me write my novels. The Bloodlines Trilogy touches on demonology and black magic, and I had great fun learning and researching everything about it. I could never change, not even if I wanted to, therefore, this will be the genre I write for the rest of my life.

Anyway, I’m going to stop freaking people out now lol. I hope this allows people to see another side of me, and I hope what I’ve said makes sense.
Thanks again for having me.
Happy reading!




Blurb:

Keira Jameson used to lead a normal life, she just had a gift, passed down through the generations of her family. 

Now, after hearing voices, having strange dreams of others calling out to her, and her grandfather's last words haunting her, she sets out to find other families like hers. Along with her best friend Lily, the only person outside her family to know about her gift, Keira begins a hunt for her ancestors. A chance meeting with a young man, Lucian Turner, sets them on the right track, but their discoveries change the way Keira will see herself for ever more.

Fear, superstition and heritage are shaping Keira's future and she must face her enemies, even if this could mean losing her life.

Through loss and love her destiny becomes inescapable.

 Released November 1st!


Blurb:
Keira has been through Hell, literally..... But now she’s back, and stronger than ever!

In this second gripping installment of the Bloodlines trilogy Keira and her friends – Lily, Lucian, Tyler, Jake and Danny – continue to try and understand their elemental powers, and protect themselves from their enemies, whose ultimate goal is to destroy them.

This time, the stakes are higher – what seems to be a demon rebellion has broken out in hell and the Earth is plunged into chaos. Their problem is, no one – not even Lucifer himself – knows who the rebel leader is. It seems only Keira, her frightened but determined friends, and a new ally – a demon named Eligos - can find out who this person or thing is, why they are suddenly causing so much bloodshed, pain and upset for everyone, and destroy them.

Bloody awesome battles, amazing feats of magic, and a stronger-than-death passion, make for an intoxicating, unforgettable read in this powerfully imagined fantasy... 

About the author:
I have lived in Droylsden, Manchester, all my life. I live with my parents and my younger sister, Cheryl. I never knew what I wanted to do with my life until I began writing. This is my dream.

I get most of my inspiration from music, I’ll sit there listening to it and suddenly I’m no longer in the room. My stories play like videos in my mind, then I go and write them down.

I’m a very dark person, I love anything spooky, supernatural, or unexplainable, and so that’s the genre I want to write in for the rest of my life. I love watching scary films, although I find it very hard to find one these days that actually frighten me.
