In Shadows of Magic Tour: Guest Post with author Alison F. Prince

Today I'm participating in the In Shadows of Magic blog tour. This tour is all about having confidence in yourself! I have a guest post from the author and a giveaway below. Enjoy!

Bea- YOU- tiful: Real Confidence in Yourself

Be Brave

There are times that you may feel afraid.  Do you let that fear hold you back?  Confident people are brave.  By confronting their fears, they grow as people, gain new experiences, and become stronger individuals.

What are you afraid of?  Maybe you have been wanting to ask your crush out on a date, but you're scared of rejection.  Perhaps you want to try out for the soccer team, but you are afraid you will make a fool of yourself.  It's possible you want to write a book, but you're too afraid to show anyone your work.

Although Mandy McKinney is the most popular girl in school, she is afraid that she is not good enough.  She worries that any wrong move she makes will negatively effect her social status.  She is falling in love with her good friend, but she doubts that he feels the same.

Everyone is stunned when Mandy dyes her blonde hair to red.  She was finally brave enough to do something that she always wanted to do, without letting fear of what everyone else will think stop her.  Now will she be able to find the strength to tell the boy she loves how she feels?

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any luck when it comes to dating.  All the boys have always used her to try to get closer to her beautiful sister, and then dumped her.  When Brianna finally meets the right guy for her, she is terrified of getting her heart broken again.

Will Brianna find the courage to let down her walls and fall in love?

If you don't take the chance, you never know what you will miss out on!  So go ahead and ask your crush out on a that date.  Try out for the soccer team!  Stand up in front of a crowd and read your writing!  If there is something you want but you've been letting fear hold you back, take a deep breath and go for it!  Remember:  you miss 100% of the shots that you don't take.

Join witches Brianna and Mandy on their magical journey of self discovery in the new Young Adult Paranormal novel by Alison F. Prince, In Shadows of Magic.

About the book:

Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake.

Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.

The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.
