Heather Frost is the author of Seers.Seers is the debut novel of Heather Frost. This book is out to buy on 03/10/11. There is a blog tour to promote this book running from 1/09/11 to the 23/09/11.

1.   What is your name, where were you born and where do you live now?
I'm Heather Frost, and I was born in Sandy, Utah, USA. I currently live in Logan, Utah.

2.   What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarise it in less than 20 words what would you say?
“Seers” is about a war between immortals, and the unfortunate Seers that are caught in between. Specifically, the book follows Kate, a new Seer.

3.   Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series?
“Seers” is the first in a trilogy, so I'm working on getting the sequel, “Demons”, ready for publication.

4.   How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?
I've been writing short stories for as long as I can remember, but I wrote my first novel when I was 12. Money was scarce, and I'd read everything I could get my hands on. And so I decided I'd write my own book. My reasoning was simple—I knew the type of story I liked, and it wouldn't cost me anything to write it. I haven't stopped writing novels since, although “Seers” is my first published book.

5.   Which format of book do you prefer, ebook,hardback, or paperback?
I love hardback books best, but paperbacks are my favourite when I'm on the go.

6.   Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favourite/worst  book to movie transfer?
I LOVE books, and I LOVE movies. But turning a book into a movie can be a painfully bad idea. Sure, there have been successful ones. The absolute best, in my opinion, was the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The most cringe-worthy for me was Eragon. Loved the book, winced at the movie. Casting is vital, but most importantly the screenplay must be as true to the book as possible. Obviously some things have to be altered, but the story needs to be essentially the same.

7.   What are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it? What format is it?(ebook, hardback or paperback)
I'm currently reading Annexed, by Rebecca McKinnon. It's a paperback, and I'm loving it. Very imaginative, with really intriguing characters.

8.   Is there a book you know you will never read? Or one you tried to read but just couldn't finish?
I've tried reading Plato's Republic three times, and for the life of me I can't make it to the end.

9.   Do you or would you ever use a pen name?
I don't currently use a pen name, but I can see the sense behind them. Someday, I may end up becoming Daphne Blunt or Gertrude Powers. If nothing else, they're fun to come up with.

About the book;

After surviving a car crash that killed her parents Kate has to face big changes in her life. Bigger than anyone could imagine or begin to understand. Since the accident Kate has been able to see Aura's, she tried to explain in hospital, but it seemed like everyone thought she was going mad. So Kate kept quiet about it, and now only her best friend knows what Kate see's. Kate had just about got used to seeing the aura's when she starts seeing people no one else can see! A new bot has arrived at school too called Patrick. Patrick has the same silver aura that the  "invisible to others" people have. What does it mean? Why does she feel so edgy and uncomfortable around Patrick? Who are the "invisible" people? What does it all mean? Why her?

Wow what a brilliant book. This book has two guardians, Patrick and Toni, who really are not the typical image you would have for a guardian angel. I loved the descriptions in this book and the concept of a choice when you die, you can go to heaven and be the "perfect" age of 25 forever with your loved ones that have passed before you. Or you can become a guardian and remain the age you were when you died and watch over all those humans on earth. I also loved the idea of when children die young that they stay that same age until there parents are with them, then the parents get to bring them up in heaven. What a heart string tugging concept, I certainly got a lump in my throat when I read that part. There also are hidden moral messages in the book if you choose to see them. For example when Patrick, and Kate and Lee sit with the "Special Ed Kids" on there usually isolated table. The way the Special Ed kids interact with Kate and the simpler outlook on life these kids have which Kate can see from their auras. I think the hidden moral there is don't ignore or write them off just because the appear different. As the book progresses poor Kate is trying to lead two lives and keep them as separate as she can, on one life she has Aaron, her grandparents, and her sisters. Kate finds it difficult to lie to her grandparents, especially her grandfather who seems to be able to read her feelings and moods so well. The other life she is leading is the one she is drawn into whether she wishes it or not with Patrick and Toni. There really is so much going on as well as everything else Kate comes to a difficult conclusion that the feelings she has for Aaron are no longer the love she used to feel for him. I found the book quite fast paced in places but it was still easy to follow. The way it swaps and is told from Kates point of view and then Patrick's point of view is really good too because you are able to get their individual reactions to the same situations. Finally the epilogue at the end is genius as it sets the scene for a book two and really makes you want to read more. So when is book two out?
