PR Special Edition: Amy Lignor!

Poisoned Rationality Special  Edition

Welcome to another Poisoned Rationality Special Edition! Today we have Amy Lignor, author of Until Next Time from Tribute Books!  She asked the main characters of Until, Emily and Matt, to tell us about who they would be if they had a choice

Synopsis:  How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?

Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.

When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.

From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.


From the Mouths of Angels

Today I was given a topic that dealt with the subject of who my characters would be if they could be anyone else. Seeing as that they’re far better sources to go to for this answer, I asked them to come here to make sure I didn’t get anything lost in the translation.


My name is Matthew, but you’ll call me Matt. After all, after you read my…our (Emily’s sitting beside me rolling her eyes) story, you’ll know a great deal about me. I’m a warrior angel. No, that’s not like those fictional guys out there like Superman (although, he’s cool). I was actually trained to fight an enemy, or Emily. I defend and protect and, unfortunately, I rid your lives of evil souls, but it’s not glamorous by any means. I’ve met warriors before, though. There was one man who actually took care of
his family working a gazillion jobs, and made sure to be on the bleachers at his oldest son’s baseball game every Saturday. No, I’m not trying to sound like a bad commercial, I actually did meet warriors like this down there and thought they were way cooler than I was. But if I had to be something else, I would be a vet. I spend almost all my down time either training with Gabe in the ‘pit,’ or on a field with a man named Frank. There, I’m constantly surrounded by animals, and I think they have way more interesting souls than we do. I seriously love the panthers, jaguars - all the big cats, actually. Not only are they warriors, but we get along.


I’m Emily, and I really do try not to roll my eyes, but we’re together a lot. I spend most of my time in our library. I love to read (not to suck up to you guys, of course).  I actually got to meet a real librarian up here who suffered a harsh demise doing what she loved. Her name was Hypatia, but she doesn’t talk about the horrific thing that happened to her in Egypt a long time ago. What she does talk about is the Royal Library of Alexandria. It sounds amazing. The walls were lined with shelves that had millions of small squares cut out in them that held scrolls. Famous scrolls; everything from politics to law to the stars. She makes it sound so amazing. So if I wasn’t an angel; if I wasn’t made to walk beside Matt and try to figure out what we’re going to do down there the next time around, I would be a librarian. One of my teachers says that it’s impossible, seeing as that Matt and I are attached and he couldn’t stay quiet if anyone’s life depended on it.

When you head into our stories and see these places for yourselves, I hope our ultimate choice makes sense to you. Maybe we should’ve been a vet and a librarian, but it’s too late to think about that now. ‘Next time’ is here…


Thank you Emily and Matt, and thank you Amy for enabling us to have a chat!  Wanna know more?  Click the banner to follow Amy on her blog tour, or check out her website The Write Companion and her blog!
