Be sure to follow the rest of the tour here for excerpts, guest posts, interviews, reviews, and more. Enjoy!
Title: Successor
Author: Rae Miles
Publication Date: October 24, 2018
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
For seventeen-year-old Evan, graduation means the freedom to leave behind her small-town life and find where she belongs. She never expected it to be in a different world.

Across time and space, deep in a mysterious jungle, Evan discovers the hidden heritage of her mother’s people and her own legacy. She becomes their elemental, a protector gifted with the power to control nature. The role has its challenges, but the biggest is the inexplicable connection with her scarred bodyguard, Ren. Frustrated and fascinated by him, Evan resists the magnetic pull after realizing there’s more to it than simple attraction.

Claiming her birthright reignites the wrath of a ruthless enemy with a score to settle. To protect her new family, Evan will need to call on her formidable power. But embracing it could cause her to lose herself and the man who holds her heart.

About the Author:
Rae Miles started creating characters at the ripe age of nine, dreaming that one day they’d have a place to call home. Many years and a creative writing degree later, that dream became a reality with her debut novel, Successor. When not writing, Rae’s absorbed in reading, movies, music, and napping. She loves animals of all kinds, and currently lives in Wisconsin with her three quirky cats.

Guest Post:
Do you think it would be more fun being a hero or a villain? Why?

When I’ve watched and read interviews by actors about which they enjoy portraying more, the majority admit they have a preference for playing the villain. Their reason? There’s so much more freedom in playing the villain. Villains aren’t constrained by what society deems to be good or bad. They just do what they want, when they want, and most of the time they have fun doing it. And a lot of them are pretty badass. What’s so bad about that? So in theory, I totally agree it’d be more fun to be a villain. But in reality? I am way too boring for it! I’m definitely the stay-at-home type with reading, painting, movies, and napping. And my cats. Nothing beats cuddling with them while snuggled up in bed.
