Welcome Patricia and her new book, Influenced

Welcome to Patricia Josephine and her new book, Influenced!

Influencers are the voices that whisper in our ears. Tiny Angels and devils sitting on our shoulders and guiding our choices. They are sworn to thwart the other. It is their duty.

Or so they thought…

Nothing is as it seems and questions are piling up. Do Kale and Ariel have the strength to face the truth? Will Antonia and Landon be forced to choose a side? Can Soleil break through to Kemuel? Three tales, three choices: Light. Dark. Or the shades of gray between.

Which one will win?

About the Author

Patricia Josephine is a writer of Urban Fantasy and Sci-Fi Romance books. She actually never set out to become a writer, and in fact, she was more interested in art and band in high school and college. Her dreams were of becoming an artist like Picasso. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head for fun. That was the start of her writing journey, and she hasn’t regretted a moment. When she’s not writing, she’s watching Doctor Who or reading about serial killers. She’s an avid knitter. One can never have too much yarn. She writes Young Adult Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Fantasy under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, and has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow.

Patricia’s Social Media

I understand ‘influencer’ but really, haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it, or trying to be one. Patricia’s book gives me an opportunity to do that through the vehicle of fiction–with real-life plots, interesting characters, and a satisfying ending.

If you would like to figure out what type of influencer you are, Patricia’s created a Q&A. Work through the seven question and then look at what it means!

Guest Post: Are you a Light Influencer or a Dark Influencer?

We all have Influencers who sit on our shoulders and guide us, but have you ever wondered which one you would be? Would you be urging your mortal toward light or enticing them into some devious fun? Find out with these simple questions.

1)What flavor describes you?

  1. Vanilla
  2. Caramel

2)Which do you prefer?

  1. Dog
  2. Cat

3)Is cereal a soup?

  1. No
  2. Yes

4)Does pineapple belong on pizza?

  1. No
  2. Yes

5)Toilet paper on the roll?

  1. Over
  2. Under

Is a hotdog a sandwich?

  1. No
  2. Yes

6)Who shot first?

  1. Han Solo
  2. Greedo

7)What would you teach a parrot to say first?

  1. Polly wants a cracker
  2. F$@%&$@

If you answered mostly A, you are an Influencer of Light. You want to see the best in people and strive to ensure they make the right choices, which are obvious to you. Why wouldn’t all correct choices be Light?

If you answered mostly B, then you are an Influencer of Dark. You’re not really evil, per say. You just know mischief is the best way to have fun. And if that turns a soul to darkness, that’s just an added bonus.

Which one are you? Did the answer surprise you? Thank you for stopping by and celebrating Influenced release with me. If you want to see the inspiration behind this quiz, you can grab it on Amazon for $1.99 or read it for free on Kindle Unlimited.

  1. Hi Jacqui – mostly ‘no’ – so dark and taking the different path … but love the sound of Patricia’s stories … fun to read – both of you take care – Hilary

  2. This was a fun introduction to Patricia’s book! I’m wishing her lots of success with her book launch. It’s hard to resist a fun quiz. I’m split right down the middle. I’ve always had a secret desire to teach a parrot to swear, but I was saved from the dark side by Han Solo who shot Greedo in the original film. All the best, Jacqui!

  3. Thanks for introducing Patricia and her unique book to us, Jacqui! When I think about “influencers”, I think about people with popular YouTube channels, blogs, and social media and thousands of followers. So not me! 🙂 On the up side, all my answers in the quiz were #1’s. Didn’t expect that!

    • The first time, I was called an ‘influencer’ (with my education hat on), I didn’t know what it meant. When they found out I wasn’t, they dumped me! I’m happy just chatting with folks, not trying to change their thinking.
