The Empress by Karen Amanda Hooper (Giveaway)


Bookiemoji and author Karen Amanda Hooper
are celebrating together!

Karen is celebrating her new release
and Bookiemoji is celebrating our new blog. Yay!

Eh-em… With that being said…
The fourth episode of VIRTUAL ARCANA by Karen is now available.

cover-the-empressThe Empress cover says it’s book 3, but it’s actually the fourth episode because this series starts with #0, The Fool. (FREE on all ebook retailers!) Yes, the numbering is a tad confusing, but the system is based on the major arcana cards of a tarot deck, which starts with #0… Ahh, the mystery of the tarot.

Haven’t read the first few episodes of Virtual Arcana? …Here’s the summary:

In a faraway future, Kelsey Zellar is starting her senior year at yet another school thanks to her twin sister’s troublesome obsession with outlawed virtual reality games. Every school they’ve ever attended is pretty much the same: lunchroom drama, rich kids binging on enhancement candies, and classmates rallying for or against the government’s strict control over everything from entertainment privileges to caffeine consumption. Unlike her sister, Kelsey follows the rules and keeps her nose out of trouble and politics while sniffing out her next flavored latte and favorite novel. But when Kelsey meets a charming book connoisseur, and accepts his offering of a tarot card, she takes the first step toward two new addictions: the guy of her dreams, and his illegal dealing of virtual escapes into her beloved storybooks. Kelsey straddles the worlds of fiction and reality, but is she a fool for believing in her own happy ending?

Intrigued? Read the first episode for free!

    That is a hard one. I think it would be the scriptures because I would really like to meet Christ and talk to him. I wouldn’t want to stay long though as I love my modern comforts. 🙂

    Oh my word, that’s a tough question!! The first thing that popped to mind when I read the question was A.G. Howard’s SPLINTERED version of Wonderland!!! I’d love love LOVE to meet Morpheus down there … or over there … or up there, whichever way you go to get there!! Let’s just say… I’d LOVE to meet Morpheus on the other side of the looking glass 😉
