Ali: Is there an author that makes you go all "fangirl?"
Erin: Karen Marie Moning would be awesome. My fangirl would be total shyness. My eyes would be big, unblinking. Huge grin. I might come off a little psycho, but I am harmless. I promise.
Ali: If you could co-write with another author who would it be and why?
Erin: Angie Fox for her very excellent humor. Her monster MASH series can’t come soon enough!
Ali: What are you looking forward to most about AADNola?
Erin: Hanging out with people who love what I love. It’s such a laid back, easy atmosphere. And AAD NOLA has so many fun things to do. I can go have a fantastic time and then write it off on my taxes. Win-win, baby. I’m already planning on going next year.
Ali: The world is under attack and you are forced to run for your life. You only have room for one book in your survival kit, what book do you take?
Erin: Jane Eyre—I love gothic romances, and this one started it all. I was eleven and my mom said it was too hard for me, which it probably was. But because my mom said “no,” of course I had to read it. And Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester? Yes, please.
Ali: Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
Erin: I like tortured heroes. From the classics—Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. From current PNR—Loved Barrons. Loved him.
Ali: Are there any of your secondary characters you would like to give more life to?
Erin: Yes—Zoe (she appears in all three books of my Shadow series). She’s dark and twisty and snarky and I love her. I keep thinking I’d like to make her a heroine of her own story, and maybe someday I will. So tempting.
Ali: If your friends were asked to describe you in one word what would it be?
*Favorite color: Blue
*Favorite food: Cheesecake
*Boots or heels: Heels
*eReader or Print: Love both for diff reasons. E—immediate gratification; P—smell of the paper
*Beer, Liquor or Wine: Wine
*Favorite place to get it on besides the bedroom: Outside!
*Favorite TV Show: Castle
*Favorite Book series (besides your own): Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson
*Pj's or Lingerie: Pjs all day
*Vampires vs. Shifters: Shifters!

SHADOW TOUCH by Erin Kellison
Shadow Touch Novella, Book 1
Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance
It is bleeding into our world, bringing with it banshees, wraiths, fae from the twisting forests of Twilight. But Ellie's problem is a very different kind of phenomenon...
It ought to be attached to her; instead it has a life of its own. And her dark mirror image is a wild thing, willfully seducing the very man Ellie hoped could help.
Cam has devoted his career to exploring the boundaries between this world and the Hereafter. But nothing could prepare him for the mischief and mayhem of a soul split in two.
Who will give in first: the man struggling to unite two halves of one fascinating female; the shadow fighting for freedom to experience the thrill of every emotion; or the woman who is about to discover her own deepest desires?
Ellie Russo has suffered all her life with her shadow, a darker part of herself that’s gaining strength and baring all.
Dr. Cameron Kalamos, of the Segue Institute, agrees to meet with Ellie to try and help if he may.
Will they be able to help Ellie rid herself of her shadow, or discover that sometimes you just have to embrace even your dark side?
Shadow Touch was an amazing read that I was pulled into from the very beginning. I started this novella (which can be read as a stand-alone) without even a glance at the blurb, so I was not quite sure what I was getting myself into. I will be honest and mention that I did not expect Cam to be the hero at first. Through the novella, though, I see a growth to his character. Cam is ready to demonstrate that he has what it takes to work at the Segue Institute. Though, he soon begins to realize that things are not as easy as he had thought, and there will be times when one must make the impossible decisions.
Reading Ellie struggle with her shadow was unnerving. With each layer of Ellie’s life and secrets being exposed, you grow to sympathize with her more and understand why she desperately wanted a way out. It can be fearful to expose a darker part of yourself, but to have it done unwillingly can be utterly atrocious.
The romance between Ellie and Cam is secondary to the story of Ellie and her shadow, but I believe that made sense given the time frame in this novella. I enjoyed the chemistry between Ellie and Cam, who discovered an unexpected attraction to each other. I hope to see their relationship develop more so in the next novella, Shadow Play.
Erin Kellison wastes no words, weaving a story that becomes a vivid image in your mind. For a novella, the world building is amazing. I am now a fan and am eager to continue reading the Shadow series.
