Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.
Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.
I am happy to welcome Emma Michaels to Colorimetry!! I love the cover to her book... I love the name... I love the idea. And after this interview, I can't wait to read it!
Make sure to catch the snippet of excerpt before the giveaway below. This is a special Tour by Tribute where each stop has an excerpt. In order. I got the best one. (That might be my opinion.)
Do you have a favorite scene?
How fun! I love the idea of the story surprising you... especially with a courtship dance. I get a sense of Iris' character, too, that she "let herself fall for him for just a moment." She sounds strong. I like her already.
Please share something personal about YOU! Favorite color? animal? vacation spot?
Oh, my... I feel like we need to give you some vacation ideas!! Staycations count if you pitch a tent in the backyard or living room. Sometimes books count. Pinterest definitely counts. :-) We will find you some vacations, I think... maybe with monkeys and otters!! Pink ones!
Oh... and Yay for Doctor Who!!

Emma Michaels is the author of the ‘A Sense of Truth’ and ‘Society of Feathers’ series. Her goal with her latest YA novel 'Owlet' is to give others what she did not have growing up; a strong female protagonist with asthma. While her previous aspiration was to be a lady knight she realized that not being able to run more than a few feet might become a hindrance so turned to writing instead. Her day jobs include being a cover artist, marketing consultant and silk screen designer.
As the founder of The Writers Voice blog (http://OurBooksOurVoice.Blogspot.com) she loves to connect authors and readers. As a book blogger turned author, she was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, until she moved at eighteen to Washington State. Suddenly, the world was a new place filled with tall green trees that reached further for the sky with every moment, making her want to do the same. Ever since, she has tried to make her life something new and different from what it was before, pursuing her future career, setting high goals and reaching for them. With the support of her fiancé, Chihuahua, and her amazing blog followers and fellow bloggers, she wants to prove to the world that anything is possible and help inspire fellow literary lovers to reach for their dreams.

“Is this what the doorknob looked like?” He returned to her side and opened his hand; his eyes looked into hers again, as if pleading with her to say ‘yes.’
Iris looked down and could barely breathe; resting on his palm was the golden feather, curved to look like a door handle. It was a necklace—an exact replica of the feather from her dreams.
“Yes,” her voice came out like a whisper.
She watched her father as his eyes changed, filling with what Iris could have sworn was excitement. He watched her for a moment, waiting for something. When she didn’t move he smiled and opened the door to the hallway. Walking out quickly, with the necklace still in his hand, her father disappeared from sight, leaving the door open behind him.
He knows now. You will get to go home. You will see HIM again.“But this is my home...” she whispered to the voice inside her.
