Seasons Within: Blog Tour & Giveaway


Seasons Within
Lele Iturrioz
(Acorn Publishing)
Publication date: December 15th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.
G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.
It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.

Guest Post...


I saw on your website that there came a point in your life, after a health scare, that you decided to go for your dreams--which led to writing "Seasons Within". You mentioned a 'bucket list', and I was hoping you might share a few other items from that list. Maybe some that you've accomplished and/or some that you'll achieve some day.


I remember starting my bucket list when I was 15 but it was forgotten for many years, after all I was young and had all the time in the world. Only, I almost didn’t. After my heart attack the word “later” turned into “Why not now?”
So when I moved to LA, I drew on my living-room wall a bunch of stuff from my bucket list and every time I did one of them I colored it and the people who did it with me signed their names right under the drawing. At the end it turned into a huge painting full of memories. It looked beautiful.
As for the list, it has some little things like:
- Getting on a train
- Have a white Pomeranian teacup and name it Dumbledore
- Do an Iron Chef week where every night you pick an ingredient and cook everything with it (note to readers… don’t choose chilly as your ingredient. Trust me! Chose cheese instead! Love cheese)
- To dress up like a princess and go to Disneyworld. Actually, when I did it and dressed like Rapunzel, people around Disney constantly congratulated me for my sweet 16… I didn’t have the heart to tell them I was actually 25.- thanks mom for giving me a baby face (– . – )
- Go to Ellen DeGeneres show!! Funny story there, after three years of trying I managed to go with my awesome roomie Mayra and a friend named Bridget to see Ellen’s show. I was so excited and super happy but unfortunately we got front row…I know must people would think that’s a great row but it wasn’t. I have an extreme fear at cameras and there where 4 of them pointing at us, woops… I got so anxious and stressed over the cameras that 10 min onto the show my heart gave up, I passed out and woke up surrounded by paramedics and they shoved me in an ambulance… the end… I guess watching the show was not in my destiny. Lol.

Moments before the episode…. Little did we know… jejeje


It also has big dreams like publishing an entire book series, writing a movie, have a family, live alone in a different country, doing something good for the planet, help women who have been emotionally abused by their partners and jump from a plane. Well… every time I look at that last one my heart whispers “Mmm… maybe not.”
I guess I could say that my bucket list is a mix of dreams, notes, wishes and ideas. Some are big and some are smaller but it’s the people that help me crossing them what makes all of them important.
