at waters edge blog tour banner

At Water’s Edge by S. McPherson Genre: YA fantasy/romance Published November 10th, 2015 Published by S McPherson Books : When 17-year-old, Dezaray Storm drunkenly stumbles across a portal one night, her downtrodden life begins to change, mainly because she starts living someone else’s life. Accidently trading places with the most powerful sorceress of the realm, Coldivor, Dezaray finds herself assuming the identity of her magical lookalike, having to convince everyone in the realm that she is the real deal. Aside from a few minor hiccups along the way, like the fact that she is not magical nor does she know even the simplest cards trick; Dezaray soon finds herself settling in. Particularly in the arms of Milo; a blue-eyed jokester with the ability to teleport. However, it doesn’t take long for Dezaray to realise that life on the other side is far from glitz and glamour and that creatures unimaginable are hunting her. A war is brewing between the seven empires of Coldivor and those that long to take over. Dezaray’s enchanted double is their only hope; their secret weapon, set to be unleashed on her eighteenth birthday when she is bequeathed with the powers of her forefathers. But for the enchantress to return, Dezaray has to leave, and the thought of going back to Islon fills Dezaray with dread, for more reasons than one. Torn between a reality she can’t stand and a fantasy she can’t keep, Dezaray is struggling to see how any choice she makes will lead to a happy ending.

The Book Trailer:


Please welcome At Water's Edge author S. McPherson to Diane’s Book Blog. 

1   If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

That would definitely be Milo. He’s charming, witty and a complete goofball. He would know just what to say to make being stranded not feel so terrible. I don’t doubt he would have me in stitches and he’s actually very resourceful.

There is also the added bonus that if being stranded starts to get to us, he can fall on his heritage and teleport us anywhere we want to go J muhahaha

     If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?

I would love to be best friends with Dezaray. She’s kind-hearted and sincere. Though she appears a bit standoffish at first; she’s actually just looking for someone to open up to. I think Dezaray would be a lifelong friend who always has your back. She’d be willing to talk about anything and everything with you and would genuinely listen. Dezaray also has a fun-loving side and if you can be there when she lets it out, you’re in for a real treat.

     What is your favorite book that you wrote?

I actually just finished the first draft of my favourite book by me and that is book 2 in the Water Rushes series, following ‘At Water’s Edge’. It continues the story of Dezaray and her magical lookalike, Lexovia and I feel it just gets deeper and that little bit more delightful than the first one.

4   Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I think my top favourite author would be J.K Rowling. I absolutely love her immense imagination that takes you out of this world and introduces you to things that most people wouldn’t even dream of in their wildest dreams.
I admire the beautiful simplicity of her writing style and her ability to create such varied characters that all manage to make you fall in love with them or love to hate them in some wonderful way. And (yes I’m referring to Harry Potter) just the stories she creates. #harrypotter4life

    What's your favorite book-turned movie?

I’m sure you can probably guess by the way I just ranted that my favourite book-turned movie is Harry Potter, however Hunger Games is certainly a close second and my favourite book-turned tv show is absolutely Game of Thrones.
    Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I am currently working on book two in the Water Rushes series; part two to ‘At Water’s Edge’. I really enjoyed writing this one because this story focusses less on the world building and readers get closer to the characters. I feel I show new levels to each one of them and the story itself also goes deeper. Like curdled milk, the plot thickens.

    What book are you reading now?

I have just finished reading Book 2 in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Ashes. Really enjoyed it. Cassandra has quite an imagination.

    Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
