Blog Tour~ Aegis Rising (Aegis League Series # 1)

Today’s spotlight is on teen author, Shirin Segran and  Aegis Rising, the first book in her action/adventure series. I have lots of goodies to share with you in this post: You can watch the book trailer, read the author’s Top Ten Reasons for writing this series, plus enter a giveaway for a chance to win a book store gift card. I’ve also included some YouTube videos featuring interviews with Segran about Aegis Rising and the non-profit organization that she supports.

BookDescriptionhalfsize.jpg

Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.

In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity’s horizon.

In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.

As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.

AbouttheAuthor50percent.gif

S S SegranS.S.Segran is the bestselling author of AEGIS RISING, the first book in the Aegis League Series. In crafting the premise for the novel, she drew from the inspiring imagery of the Pacific Northwest, the intriguing potential of the human mind and above all, her abiding love for adventure, science fiction and mystery stories. She enjoys drawing, horseback riding and is an ardent fan of parkour and freerunning. S.S.Segran is a proud member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets in British Columbia.

S.S.Segran is also the founder of Aegis League (www.aegisleague.org), a non-profit organization whose goal is to support youths living in places and conditions that deny them opportunities to grow. The mission of the organization is to provide life-skills training and micro-loan funding to help them launch small businesses in the communities where they reside. Partial proceeds from the sale of her books go to this cause.

S.S. Segran’s Top Ten Reasons for Starting this Series

1) Enjoy creating worlds and characters
2) Love a good story
3) Cure for my insomnia
4) Parents wanted me away from the PS3
5) It rains a lot in British Columbia—had to find something to do indoors other than vegetate
6) To avoid chores… didn’t work!
7) Too many conversations in my head, so I had two choices: Write a book, or see a shrink
8) Wanted to throw five teens into a conflict of planetary proportions (I’m not too evil, I did give them super abilities)
9) Hoping it’ll make it big and they’ll make movies out of it so I can finally get that Alienware laptop I’ve  been longing for
10) …But seriously, I just wanted to write a series to find a creative and exciting way to share a story that not only entertains but informs, and hopefully allows me to support the cause I’m passionate about: 
Empowering youth in developing countries. Please do check out my non-profit, aegisleague.org. Every time a book is bought, a portion of the sales go this cause.
