Sins of the Son Trailer, Excerpt Reading & Giveaway with Linda Poitevin

Sins of the Son by Linda Poitevin blog tour hosted by

Carmel, thank you so much for having me here today, and for offering to debut my latest book trailer, which is a little different from most. One of the things people enjoyed most at the launch party for Sins of the Angels last fall was my reading of an excerpt. They told me they loved hearing the story the way I heard it in my own head. I’ll be doing another reading for the Sins of the Son launch coming up in a couple of week–but as much as I wish all my readers could be there, logistically that’s just not possible. This video is my solution.

I’d come across the idea of video author readings a few times, but while the idea of sharing a part of my story in this way appealed, I couldn’t think of anything more boring for viewers than three or four minutes of a camera focused on me reading. Then my husband came up with the idea of setting the reading to a trailer-type format. My voice, but way more interesting imagery. I liked the idea–and I hope you will, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sins of the Son by Linda Poitevin

Buy: Amazon.comTBD

A detective with a secret…

When homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis sees a photo of Seth Benjamin on a police bulletin, she knows that Heavenโ€™s plan to halt Armageddon has gone terribly wrong. As the only mortal aware of Sethโ€™s true nature, only she can save him.

An exiled angel turned assassin…

Aramael was a hunter of Fallen Angels until a traitor forced him into earthly exile. Now, with no powers and only a faint memory of Alex, his mortal soulmate, he will stop at nothing to redeem himselfโ€”even if it means destroying Seth in the name of the Creator.

A world with little chance of redemption…

As Alexโ€™s need to protect Seth sets her on a fiery course with the determined Aramael, the coming conflict between them may push the world over the edgeโ€”and into the very chaos theyโ€™re trying to prevent.

Necklace & Earrings All winners from each individual giveaway are going to be entered into a final grand prize draw (Canada/US) at the end of the tour for a necklace/earring set designed by Cemetery Cat. PJV Blog Tours

    I just adore Castiel from Supernatural as well – the perfect straight man to Dean! Plus I love the rumbled Columbo look! ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Metraton from Dogma. It’s Alan Rickman as the voice of God. Nothing else needs to be said. Lol.

  10. I just started reading the Infernal Devices Series and I can’t pick between David and Will, although not sure they are angels in reality or not. Still great characters.
    Also like Biblical Gabriel.

  11. I don’t know of too many Angels.. being non-religious, I wouldn’t go for biblical, and I’ve not come across many fictional Angels.
    Hoping this will change that!

  12. My favourite angel would have to be the Archangel Gabriel because my late grandfater’s name was Gabriel. I think I’m more attracted to the name than the actual angel, being not too religious.

    I will have to read more angel novels to find a fictional favourite. Awesome giveaway!

  13. I haven’t come across many Angels to be honest… I’ve always been into YA and historical romance, recently I’m trying new things so I’m hoping this might change things ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for the giveaway! (at) hotmail (dot) com

  14. Can my favorite angel be Angel; you know from Buffy? LOL of course if I have to take a more serious turn, I want Gabriel watching over me! Thank you for sharing with us and for the awesome giveaway opportunity.

  15. My favourite is probably Jason from Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. Thanks for the giveaway!
