Title: After Dark (The 19th Year #1)
Author: Emi Gayle
Published:  J. Taylor Publishing
Ebook given by the publisher
Book Description:
What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably kill her.
In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes, Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life.
She has no choice but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore. Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be human during the pesky daylight hours.
Once darkness descends, Mac can change into any supernatural form that exists—which makes her as happy as she can be. That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class figures out there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge.

In this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.

1. Give us 3 short "Interesting Facts" about you.
Interesting is such a subjective term! But here goes ... 

1) My favorite color is raspberry and every one of my books includes something raspberry in it.
2) I have played the piano since before I was 5 (somewhere in the 4 age ish but no one remembers the first day exactly)
3) My mother speaks French to me, yet she's 100% American. It's something she did when I was a baby and it stuck. So I'm partially bilingual -- I don't however, speak back very well.  
2. Describe your book in one sentence?
 Ooh, one sentence. A stubborn, tough-willed Changeling, Mac Thorne, has less than one year to pick a supernatural form that she'll then be for the rest of her life, but to pick, she's going to need a human's help. 
3. Your favorite character from the book? and why?
Okay, so I love Mac (she's too much like me though) and I love Winn (but I'm married to a Winn) so I'm going to pick Suze. He's ... just ... so ... funny! And he's just as naive about life as Mac is. For a reason, of course. 
4. Sneak Peek time! Tell us your favorite scene/quote from the book?
I like this because it's a moment of thought - which is not something Mac does often.

I needed a minute for my heart to stop pounding, for it to slow and for my internal wishes to die.
Every time Zoe brought up her innocent questions, I wanted to slink off. No one un- derstood the pain of choice like me. Just be- cause I had it, didn’t mean I wanted it.
To choose one would mean I could never choose the other.
If I didn’t choose, I’d lose, too.  
5. Favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip!


  1. Oh this is a fab post! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! I don't think I've met anyone with their favourite colour being raspberry, but I like it! :)

  2. Thanks SO much for having me! :)

    1. Hi Emi,

      Review coming soon :D Thanks letting us be part of the tour.


  3. Raising bilingual children is hard, but rewarding. I try to make sure to speak with my daughter in Croatian and English, and her English pronunciation is very good.
    Oh, and I have a soft spot for changelings ever since I read Brenna Yovanoff's The Replacement.

  4. Interesting scenes! And I LOVE mint chocolate chip ice cream! Great interview :)
