A Silent Soliloquy Blog Tour

Today I'm welcoming L. G. Keltner to my blog as part of the tour for her new release A Silent Soliloquy.



I’d like to start by thanking Laura for letting me stop by her blog today! I thought I’d share another small excerpt of A Silent Soliloquy. I hope you enjoy it!

* * *

We were eye-level with a wrought iron circular table outside a coffee house. A blue balloon was floating serenely beside us, anchored to the world by our tiny fist. An old man approached, concern evident in his features. He knew TIPPIE was far too young to be wandering the streets by herself, and it was almost dusk.

This mission took place years ago. TIPPIE as a young child made for the perfect bait when it came to capturing certain kinds of criminals. A large number of upper-tier children had reported being stalked by an unknown male and female. Police suspected they were from the lower-tier, but then again, the police always assumed that to be the case. The moment one of the children went missing altogether, TIPPIE was sent out in the hope of luring the pair in.

The old man that approached first didn’t fit any of the descriptions authorities had been given. It’s possible that he too was a predator looking for an easy target. However, it’s far more likely that he was simply a kind man who was trying to help a lost little girl find her way home again.

Either way, TIPPIE decided he needed to be dealt with.

The toxin she administered acted quickly. Within moments the old man was on the ground, dead of an apparent heart attack. TIPPIE screamed and cried, giving every appearance of a distraught child who just witnessed something terrible happen to her grandfather. A man and woman quickly arrived on the scene, more than eager to look after the little girl until someone could come and get her.

TIPPIE was created to be a weapon. By all appearances, she's an ordinary girl of 18, and she uses that to her advantage in her work for The Facility. What no one sees is that there's another girl buried deep inside. She can't speak or control the movements of the body she inhabits. As TIPPIE's silent passenger, she can only observe. She uses the details she learns from TIPPIE's work to reconstruct the stories of other people's lives. It helps her feel a little more connected to the world she can only watch.

When TIPPIE's work leads her to David, a young man with a haunted past and information that The Facility wants, TIPPIE uses her skills to earn his trust. The silent girl beneath the surface knows that TIPPIE is only going to hurt him, but she can't help but feel for him. Those feelings only grow, but she knows all too well that TIPPIE's work will soon come to an end.




  L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband. Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six. Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good. 

Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.

You can typically find L.G. lurking around her blog, on Twitter, or on her Facebook page.

  2. Luckily my kids have long since all left home in fact my Granddaughter is now 19 and she is close to leaving her folks home, She usually screams and runs off when she sees although sometimes it is the other way round. I still have no time to write and draw as much as I would like too even though they have all run off now. . . .such is life

    I have been to a Silent Newquay.

    Good luck with the Book

    And Hello Miss Laura.
