Sydney Arrison began writing at a very early age. While a freshman in college, her English professor encouraged her to pursue writing as a career. She was a reporter for the independent press and is currently working on her third novel.

As a writer, what has been your biggest challenge, trials or tribulations that you have overcome? Often times it's very difficult to visit the fictional world, because real life is knocking on the door. While working on my latest book "My Heart In Seoul," my best friend was gravely ill. She and I knew she didn't have that much time left. Although my heart was broken and my spirit shattered, I knew if I stopped working on the book I wouldn't have finished it. Being able to visit Jasmine's and Wen's world is what kept me afloat. I couldn't wait to find out where the story was going next. Writing was definitely a welcome escape from reality. I think some of us do our best writing when we are "going through something."
Could you please give us a blur about your present or upcoming book? The book is about news anchor Jasmine Sinclair. She lives in NY, and has a very public break up with her famous fiancée. Instead of reporting the news, Jasmine has the tables turned on her and she has now become the news. Fed up with the prying eyes of the paparazzi, she decides to accompany her father, Senator John Avery Sinclair on his trip to

Are you planning to write any more books in the near future? Right now I’m working on a young adult mystery novel. The story takes place in the south in the 1950’s.
What advice would you give someone who is thinking about writing a book? I would tell them not to write for fame or fortune. Write because you have a story to tell, a story to share. I would also tell them to be patient.
How can our readers get in touch with you? I have a contact form on my blog. Sydneyarrison.blogspot.com. Readers are more than welcome to email me.
Thank you for allowing us to dialogue with you. Do you have any words of wisdom for future authors? I would tell them to write from the heart, to not write based on trends.

We would like to welcome and thank Daniel Rafferty for making us one of his stops during his Virtual Book Tour. He is the author of Counterpoint, a Sci-fi/Fantasy novel. Here is a peek into what readers can expect from this extraordinary writer.
Move over “War of the Worlds,” we’ve got bigger issues to deal with now! In author Daniel Rafferty’s “Counterpoint,” things aren’t always as they seem—but what, exactly, does that mean? Is it time for the fight to the end between good and evil, Heaven and Hell? Is it the beginning of Armageddon and the end of time?
It all starts out innocently enough when 12-year-old Mary asks her father where he’s off to, which happens to be one of mankind’s worst endeavours, a World War. But the story quickly moves beyond earthly boundaries, with angels, demons, the devil, archangels and even humans with supernatural powers, coming together to fight a battle between right and wrong, good and evil. And the powers-that-be are acting on God’s behalf, but is he just watching from a distance to see what happens? What’s God’s role in all of this—and will he be back to save the day—does he even still exist?
You may think you know the storyline, with so many familiar biblical names being thrown about like fresh holy water; however, there are strange twists and turns that’ll leave you wondering who the good guys and bad guys really are. Is Lucifer actually the devil incarnate or do we humans have it all wrong? Is Archangel Michael really who we think he is? Can all angels be trusted and are some demons good? It’s a mixed up dimension of space and time when you’re dealing with supernatural entities and human beings—and whose to be trusted?
Beyond the clear symbolism of names such as Mary, Gabriel, David, Ariel and others, what role does the Bassett family play and why does everyone seem to have plans for them? Why have they been chosen among all other families on earth to do what they do? What have they been selected to do? Will they realize their roles in time to save the planet and the universe as we know it or are they just pawns in a much bigger scheme?
This epic tale takes places from
Liverpool to , to the Scottish
and Welsh highlands and over to London —but the end-game
results will either be salvation or total destruction of the entire world—and
the outcome is still not certain. Is God’s human experiment over—or will we
continue for another millennium? To find
out, you must stop what you’re doing right now and read the pages of this
exciting story! Say your prayers and hope someone’s listening! Dublin
“Then destroy Hell!” Gabriel countered loudly. Both had now squared up to each other.
“Destroy Hell?” shouted Michael, over Gabriel’s repeated yeses, “and lose hundreds of angels in the process. What about the millions of demons roaming the planet? They’ll regroup and we won’t have the troops to counter them.”
“Michael,” said Gabriel calmly. He didn’t want them ending up brawling and destroying half the city in the process. “This is wrong. If we try to forcefully remove evil from this planet we risk destroying it. Humanity is capable of ejecting evil from this world. Give them the time to do so. Let the experiment run its course,” he reasoned.
“Evil was never meant to be part of this experiment!”
“We don’t know that. God left no instruction, nothing. For all we know evil is the very object humanity must overcome to pass this experiment.” Gabriel sat back down again. He knew the other Archangels agreed with him, at least to some extent, but would not anger Michael.
“The time is now,” finished Michael once more. The other archangels listened to Michael and Gabriel now descend into an ear bashing row. The world’s inhabitants, human, animal and supernatural alike had no idea that at this very moment, their fate was being determined in a hotel suite in
