Fractions of Existence by J. Lenni Dorner Blog Tour with Guest Post :)
Fractions of Existence by J. Lenni
Dorner Publication Date: September 20, 2017
Once they were humanity's exalted
protectors— now they are being hunted.
Xavier will weigh all human life
against Gwendolyn's ignorant happiness.
The good news is that her choice can
blow his away.
Omnipotent beings find each other while
playing an online game. Xavier has been searching for Gwendolyn, his
true mate and the missing member of the Existence. Only if reunited
can the group regain the rest of their memories and access all of
their powers. Hidden in plain sight, disguised as humans, they help
who they can, as best they can, when they can.
The Eyes in the Shadows, a religious
sect, has been trying to free humans from the “prison” of life on
Earth for millenniums. The Existence has always been able to thwart
them… until now. They've discovered a way to end the world that no
one will see coming.
Gwendolyn has her future all laid out.
There is a plan. She knows what her parents want for her and how to
get it. Then Xavier, a friend from a virtual game, makes her question
everything. He's full of secrets, one being an understanding of her
fear of the wind.
She tries to suppress her intense
attraction to the mysterious and frustrating Xavier. She's engaged,
after all, and the thoughts she's having aren't proper. Gwendolyn is
swept into a whirlwind of secrets, danger, and a forbidden
attraction. She'll drive across the country in her beat-up old car,
not knowing if he is genuinely interested or just being polite. (He
refuses to kiss her!) Gwendolyn's journey is full of self-doubt,
sacrifice, and dark visions that invade her sleep. Will she uncover
the truth about herself?

Here are some reasons why readers love
Fractions of Existence:
● There’s a forbidden romance.
And there’s some non-romantic sex.
● There’s a rescue scene.
● It’s an urban fantasy, but not
like the most populary-written ones. (
) Fractions of Existence lacks mention of vampires, detectives,
orphaned main characters, magic users, dragons, butt-kicking female
loners (Jez isn’t really a loner), a butt-kicking normal human who
plays with paranormals (Wend isn't really normal), or protagonists
who hunt paranormals for vigilante justice (that's the antagonists,
and they don't want justice). It IS an urban fantasy, just not that
kind of urban fantasy.
● It’s a diverse book! There's a
MC with an underrepresented body type (Wend), a MC of color (Heath),
a part Japanese character (Jun), and a contemporary world arranged
marriage (Wend and Tred). J Lenni Dorner is a Native American author.
● Xavier is the main character in
the beginning, but Gwendolyn is the main character at the end.
● The main characters are in their
early twenties, thus making it a New Adult book. (The sensual scenes,
some language, and a few scenes with drugs and alcohol also put it in
this category. The real kicker is Gwendolyn’s student loans.)
● Those who have roleplayed in a
MMORPG setting, especially the old text-based chat games, love this
● There are historical scenes.
● The Existence series starts off
as a pre-dystopian.
● Some people love that the
Fractions of Existence characters leave them with the mystery to
figure out: WHAT-ARE-THEY ( http://www.what-are-they.com )

Mary K Savarese Genre:
Cozy Mystery Angie
Pantera thought she had the perfect life: a loving, devoted husband
of twenty-five years, two wonderful, grown children, and an impending
wedding anniversary celebration with friends and family. But
the celebration is ruined by a cheating husband, and Angie’s life
devolves into a living nightmare—until serendipity brings her to
Birdsong, Maine, as recreation director at the Home of the Little
church-run nursing home that is slowly wasting away with its
nonagenarian inhabitants, the Home could use a miracle . . . or maybe
a facsimile of one. A bit of creative advertising prompts Angie to
buy a bouquet of “magical” dandelions, and in a flash of
inspiration, she knows exactly how to bring light to these dark days.
After all, no one is ever too old for wishes. But
then people start dying, and the only thing they have in common is
