Blog Tour: Persephone by Phoenix Johnson


Aug 24
- Aug 31st

Persephone takes her life and heart into her own hands when
she meets and follows a mysterious stranger on a sweet summer day. However,
tragedy strikes, and her lover, the mystifying Adrian, begs her as his life
fades: Persephone, head to the sea. Honoring his request, she begins a journey
where she discovers her true heritage and finds the family she always dreamed
of. Persephone almost finds peace and happiness until her past catches up. She
is not about to give up, however, and is determined to obey Adrian’s dying

But what is waiting for her at the shore? Will she find her destiny, or lose
everything she had fought so hard to find? Can she become the Witch that her
true parents wanted her to be, or will she succumb to the Darkness?

Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written
word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at
least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the
same cereal box each morning at breakfast. Paranormal and fantasy captured her
heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her
away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged. While she
dabbled in writing while in primary school, it wasn’t until high school that
she decided she should try her hand at writing her own book, and even gave
poetry a try.

She wandered away from writing for a few years, but was soon encouraged to
return and, within months of picking up the proverbial pen, Phoenix’ first
story, The Wolf In The Neighborhood, was accepted for publication by Naughty
Nights Press. While working on the rest of the Wolf Smitten Trilogy, Phoenix
decided to take on a university degree, and is now in the final stretch of her
Bachelor of Art’s degree in Professional Writing and Publishing, with plans to
continue on to her Master’s degree.

In early 2015, Phoenix was thrilled to discover she’d made two Top 5 lists with
three entries in the Easychair Bookstore Awards. In June, it was announced she
had placed first in Best Paranormal with Once Bitten Twice Shy, the second
installment in her Wolf Smitten Trilogy, while The Wolf In The Neighborhood and
Wolf Smitten placed third in their respective categories of Best Paranormal and
Best Series.

With her inclusion in the Alphas on the Prowl Box Set in 2015, Phoenix hit the
top 100 bestsellers lists across numerous distributors, number 1 bestseller on
several Amazon lists, and this was quickly followed by the announcement of her
achievement of number 1 bestseller for her publisher, Naughty Nights Press, for
the full second quarter of 2015. The awards and achievements have only served
to strengthen her ambitions, and she is now aiming at reaching the bestseller
lists for USA Today and New York Times.

Phoenix has been working hard to make 2015 her year, and has been busy
organizing paranormal anthology Twisted Tales with seven other authors. Its
release at the end of June is greatly anticipated, and she is extremely excited
to see where her writing career takes her next.
