Book Tour from Girls Heart Books...The Elemental Prophecy


So here it is, our first author book tour hosting event. Pressed Leaf is opening up to facilitate other authors into getting their books seen.  

I'd like to introduce Nikki Narvaez who is writing The Elemental Prophecy. We are featuring the first two books in the series, Envisioned and Emblazed...intriguing covers don't you think? The concept sounds really interesting..I can't wait to get into the first book and see where it leads me.  

In the meantime please enjoy reading a bit about Nikki and a small excerpt from the book as well as her choice for "who would play the main characters in a movie". Then follow along on her tour, you'll find author interview, character interviews, top ten lists, even a few reviews and more...enjoy!

Book Info-

Title- Envisioned
Series- The Elemental Prophecy Book # 1
By- Nikki Narvaez
Genre-New Adult /Paranormal Romance

Brielle De Luca thought she was just an average girl, despite her nightly dreams of an impending apocalypse, along with a gorgeous man that pulls at her soul.

However, on the night of her 18th birthday, everything changes when she is thrown into the Elemental World, a world where she is supposedly the One that is spoken about in an ancient Prophecy; a Prophecy that states she is the key to preventing an apocalypse.

Now she must learn to control her power over the four elements, all while dealing with the love and intense passion of her bond to the man from her dreams, Jace Vasquez.

Piece of cake, right?


Book Info-

Title- Emblazed
Series- The Elemental Prophecy Book # 2
By- Nikki Narvaez  
Expected Publication Date- September 20th, 2013

Three days. Three days seems like a lot of time, but not when you are racing to save the one you love. Not when time is against you.

Three days is all Jace has to save Brielle, to prevent both of their deaths. Both have more to battle than they ever imagined while they fight for their lives, their souls, and their love.

Will Jace be able to rescue Brielle, or will the fate of the world die with her?


About the Author-
My name is Nikki Narvaez. I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, where I currently live with my husband, our two dogs, Bella and Oreo, and our cat, Cupcake. I have been teaching for four years, but I hope to become a full-time writer and stay at home mom one day. I am 27 years old, and have three older sisters who have blessed me with four nephews and one niece. In my free time, I love to write and play Texas Hold 'Em poker. I just released my first novel, a New Adult Fantasy/Paranormal Romance titled Envisioned. It is the first in the trilogy of The Elemental Prophecy Series. I am currently working on Book Two, titled Emblazed, as well as another Adult Paranormal Romance trilogy and a Contemporary Romance.


Facebook Event-

Nikki was asked this question from our tour host at Girls Heart Books...

If “Envisioned” & “Emblazed” were made into movies, and you could cast anyone you wanted, who would you choose?

Brielle: That’s a hard one! I think the closest actress in Hollywood to Brielle would be Odette Annable, but with lighter hair.

Jace: My muse for Jace is MMA fighter Roger Huerta.

Kimber: Julianne Hough

Zane: I don’t have a name for this guy, but he’s the only guy that comes close to Zane :)

Kiera: Ginnifer Goodwin
