*Book Tour & Giveaway* The Heat Series by David Neth-GUEST POST

Black Magnet 
Heat Book 1 
by David Neth 
Genre: Superhero Action Adventure 

The city is heating up...

Ash doesn't know who he is or how he ended up in an old coal mine outside the city. Even more terrifying, he discovers that he can throw fire from the palms of his hands when he saves Rachel from being mugged. She's a researcher, who develops a curiosity for his powers. With the help of Rachel and her coworker, Perry, Ash tries to piece together what happened to him.

They soon encounter another super they call the Gatekeeper, who knows Ash's history and holds a grudge against him for it that he expects Ash to pay for. But the Gatekeeper seems to be more powerful than Ash's own moniker: Heat. With the Gatekeeper's apprentice, Black Magnet, terrorizing the city, Heat will have to fight his way to uncover answers about his past.

However, those answers won't set him free.

The truth will set him free...

In the aftermath of Black Magnet's demise, Ash and his friends are still adjusting to the ramifications its had on their lives. Now equipped with a glimpse of who he was before he woke up in the mine, Ash is reluctant to learn more about himself and looks for anything to keep his mind off of his past.

When a student at Perry's new job at a nearby university winds up dead with no sign of attack other than sand scattered around the body, Ash finds the perfect distraction. Only, he can barely get answers on the first victim before another student is killed in the same way somewhere else on campus.

While attempting to solve the murders that Ash knows was done by a super, he soon finds himself in the cross-hairs of the police detective leading the investigation. In order to stop the super truly responsible for the murders, Ash is faced with a choice: take the fall for the attacks or expose himself as Heat.

His enemies are closer than he thinks...

When Ash gets a phone call from Detective Jenna Harkness, he knows he's in for a whirlwind. She tells him an officer brought in a crazy man who might be of interest to him.

The man thinks it's 1969.

But when Ash listens in when Harkness interviews the man--who identifies himself as Donald Douglas-- he isn't convinced that there's much of a connection. That is, until Douglas lays eyes on Ash and spits in his face.

The team soon discovers that Douglas is the latest hitman hired by the Gatekeeper to kill Heat. But they still haven't figured out a way to stop the Gatekeeper and keep him contained under police supervision. And unlike Heat, he's willing to change history to settle the score. 

David Neth is the author of the Heat series, the Fuse series, the Under the Moon series, and other stories. He lives in Batavia, NY, where he dreams of a successful publishing career and opening his own bookstore. 


Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

I try to remain as focused on a particular series as I can, so I don’t write more than one book at a once. Also, I don’t typically have the time to write more than one!

On the rare occasion where I do have more time, I’ll write a chapter of one book and then edit a couple chapters of another. It keeps my productivity up while still devoting my creative brain to the one book I’m writing.

A day in the life of the author?

It varies, depending on what time of year it is. For the most part, I aim to write 2,000 words a day. In the past, that meant one chapter (give or take a few hundred words), but lately I’ve been experimenting with writing shorter chapters to keep the story moving and actually add different layers to the story. Surprisingly, it’s been helping me write more in one day!

That’s it, for the most part. Sometimes writing takes me an hour, other times three hours (although about two hours is my average). If I have more time, I’ll edit another book after I write or work on some things for the “business” side of self-publishing (which, I admit, I’m quite lazy with).

The most important thing is that I’m writing every day (and I don’t write on the weekends, usually because breaks are important too). Without getting the words on paper, there’s really no point in calling myself a writer anymore, is there?

What are they currently reading?

I’m always reading and I tend to stick to series so I can follow the same character as they grow and develop through the events of several books. Some of the series I’m a fan of are the Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni, the Rizzoli & Isles series by Tess Gerritsen, the Erika Foster series by Robert Bryndza, and the Jack Daniels series by JA Konrath.
