The Mephisto Kiss Blog Tour: Spotlight, Guest Post & Giveaway

Hey Ya'll, firstly I'd like to apologies for this post being so late, I had a family emergency (everything is ok now thank goodness) which couldn't be ignored. I'd like to thank Jean BookNerd & Trinity Faegen for including us in this amazing blog tour. So, here's the second stop on The Mephisto Kiss tour, don't forget to check out the upcoming and past stops so you don't miss anything. :-)
Trinity Faegen

Trinity Faegen wasn’t always a writer. She had an illustrious career as a Campus Cop in college, led many children astray as a camp counselor, and decorated Christmas trees for sweet, and notsosweet, little old ladies. She loves metal and rock, the Rocky mountains, chocolate cake and college football. She hates sappy stuff and hypocrites. Mostly, though, she loves to write.
Trinity lives in the outback of Texas with her husband and a mean cat. If you’d like to share camp stories, or ask Trinity why she’s ruining her hearing by listening to metal on headphones, write to her at:


The Mephisto Kiss


The eyes never lie. No one’s eyes are darker than Eryx. Not even the Devil’s.
When Jax and Sasha first see Jordan Ellis, they know she is no ordinary teenager. She’s the daughter of the President after all, but she’s also Anabo – a descendant of Eve.
What they don’t know is that Eryx plans to kidnap Jordan and force President Ellis to pledge his soul. If Eryx’s plot succeeds, the consequences would be catastrophic.
But the Mephisto brothers do know about Jordan’s secret identity. And for one of them, she could be the match that leads to their soul’s salvation.
Now it’s a desperate race against time to save Jordan and prevent Eryx’s haunting eyes from discovering her true identity.
A thrilling story of romance, danger, and intrigue, THE MEPHISTO KISS continues the marvelous mythology that began in THE MEPHISTO COVENANT.


Greatest thing you learned at school.

The greatest thing I learned at school was how to get along with people. It wasn’t an easy lesson. I was shunned in the 6th grade, but befriended by a very tall girl who was also shunned, and I learned about kindness and humility. I’ve realized as I’ve grown older, take any group of people in any environment, and there will always be certain personalities and dynamics. I saw it at school, at work, in social groups.
There’s always a leader, that one person who everyone turns to when there’s a question of how to go forward, whether it’s a project at work, how to treat the new guy at school, or where we should go to dinner for so-and-so’s birthday. It’s a huge responsibility to be the leader, and some are up to the task, and others aren’t. This is where the mean girl mentality comes into play. If the dominant personality in a group tends toward cruelty, the dynamics change. Everyone follows out of fear. If the leader is compassionate and giving, others follow with admiration and enthusiasm.
There are others I’ve found in every group:
The know-it-all, who can sometimes turn into Debbie Downer. Whatever the group is doing, this guy will spout off about why it won’t work, or what’s wrong with it.
The not-quite-ready-for-prime-time guy, who might be slightly less intelligent, or preoccupied, so he never knows what’s actually happening. This is the guy who’s always late to class/meetings/dinner, because he was watching Myth Busters or Johnny Quest. He says inappropriate things and never has a clue he’s just offended everyone in the room. He’s loveable, however, so everyone puts up with him.
The Beautiful One. Guy or girl, this is the one who gets a pass for anything because of their stunning good looks. We want to be mad at them for dropping the ball on this group assignment, but they’re just so pretty – who could stay mad at that face?
The so-sweet-it-makes-your-teeth-hurt guy. This is a person who never has an unkind thing to say about anyone. They make you think of your granny, or Mary Poppins. They’re usually the one who suggests it’s not a good idea to tease another group member about their bad hair day. This is the one who knows everyone’s bad stuff, who people turn to for comfort.
The smart one. This is the guy everyone envies because he aces chemistry after hanging out half the night at your house playing video games and drinking eleventy million Red Bulls. You got a C – he got an A. He’ll go to med school and become a brain surgeon and all the other brain surgeons in his group will wonder how he gets so much done. We want to hate him, but he’s so laid back about his genius, we can’t.
The Peacemaker. This person has a future as a diplomat, they’re so good at smoothing all the ruffled feathers.
I knew ALL these people in school. I moved groups as time passed and found my own niche of friends in high school, one of which was the maid of honor in my wedding and I’m godmother to her son. She was the Peacemaker. Our Beautiful One grew into a more beautiful woman, married a rich guy, had four little girls, and was taken by breast cancer a year after the fourth was born. The smart one got a degree in archeology, then chucked it all and became a carpenter, married an earth mama and had a son he named Atticus. I lost touch with the know-it-all and not-ready-for-prime-time.
You don’t realize as you’re growing up and going to school that you’re learning a lot more than algebra and world history. You’re also learning how to live in the world and make nice with your fellow humans.
