Deadly Destinations: Dawn Metcalf’s Glendale, North Carolina

**Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour with Pamela Palmer & enter for a chance to win a signed copy of A Blood Seduction**

Deadly Destinations travels to Glendale, North Carolina to find the entrance to another world… the Twixt. Find out more about this world in Indelible by Dawn Metcalf. The first novel in the Twixt world will be released on July 30, 2013 from Harlequin Teen. Want to know our thoughts on Indelible? Read Bridget’s review here.

Enter for a chance to win signed ARC of Indelible, a signed bookmark, a sticker & a temp tattoo! This giveaway is courtesy of Dawn Metcalf.

_________________________________________________________________________________

In Glendale, North Carolina, there is a grassy hill that overlooks the town green that stretches from the edge of the Historic District to the center of downtown. On that hill was built a giant, six-row carousel, once the pride and joy of the township, a marvel of hand-carved, fanciful animals festooned with cut-glass jewels and eerily painted eyes. But after years of happy children, sweaty teenagers, inclement weather and abuse, the oldest fair attraction had lost its appeal and yet no one would dare suggest that it be taken down. The Town Hall debates were lengthy and loud, headed by the Historical Society, the Preservation Committee and the Beautification Committee who stood against corporate progress in the name of Glendale’s future generations. And so the carousel’s animals were auctioned to private collectors and museums, the inner mechanisms gutted and upgraded to code, and the outer structure painstakingly restored so that the carousel still stood upon Glendale’s town green, a host to ballroom dance classes for seniors and children’s theater in the round before being reinvented as Glendale’s hottest indoor/outdoor scene, a dance club that now stands proudly at the head of every spring festival, town fair and each Thursday’s Under 18 rave scene.

But there’s something else about the Carousel that people don’t know or have perhaps long-since forgotten: the Carousel was built over an entrance between worlds, separating us from those said to live under the Hill…

They are called the Folk and they live in the Twixt.

SOME DO’S AND DON’TS AS YOU HEAD INTO THE TWIXT:

– DO visit Glendale–you meet the most *interesting* people, there!

– DON’T make eye contact. You are not supposed to be able to See them.

– DO believe what you See: they’re really there and they’re really real.

– DON’T ask for their name. The Folk guard their True Names and are highly suspicious of anyone who asks for them.
– DO believe what they say–but only what they say. The Folk cannot tell a lie, but words can be slippery.

– DON’T make them angry. The Folk are notoriously patient and have very long memories.

– DO check the doors, the locks, keys, windows, your backpack, your purse, your phone and under the bed. You never know who may be trying to reach you.

– DON’T fall in love with one of the Folk. Just don’t.

_________________________________________________________________________________

About Dawn:

I have no good excuse for the way I write. I lived in a normal, loving, suburban home, studied hard, went to college, went to graduate school, got married, had babies, and settled down in northern Connecticut. Despite this wholesome lifestyle, I was clearly corrupted by fairy tales, puppet visionaries, British humour and graphic novels. As a result, I write dark, quirky, and sometimes humorous speculative fiction.

About this Book:

Some things are permanent.

Indelible.

And they cannot be changed back.

Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.

Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future…and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.

Somewhere between reality and myth lies…
