Wait Until Moonrise

BlameItOnTexasToday is a special day for me.  I have a great friend with me to tell you about her fantastic book.  It’s a beautiful, romantic story, full of love, a dash of time-travel, a touch of suspense, and a very sexy hero.  How can you go wrong?  You can’t.  So stick around, leave a comment, and you might be lucky enough to win one of two copies of Wait Until Moonrise.

Please welcome, one of the nicest ladies you’ll ever hope to meet…Teri Thackston!


Thanks, Christie, for inviting me to post on your blog. It’s always nice to get together with my writer friends—even if it is only in the web!

 So, Teri, I’d love to know, which three words would you say best describe your book?

I would describe Wait Until Moonrise with these words:  romantic, suspenseful, haunting. It’s also the book o’my heart, holding a special place there.

Your book has a time travel element; if you could travel to any time in history, when would it be and why? 

I would want to go back to the 1940s. That was such an intense time for the world, and there were so many real—and easily identifiable—villains and heroes.  People understood what it meant to make sacrifices, and they did it anyway. And the music—Big Band music has always been a favorite of mine. It can be romantic and inspiring, and so many of those old melodies are still popular today.

And I really loved your characters.  If you had to be locked in a closet for 12 hour with either your hero or your heroine, which would you pick? 

I love Bria but I would have to say I’d choose Nicholas. Not only is he mysterious and sexy, but he has firsthand information about life in 18th century Wales. He could share some really fascinating information…and in that lovely Welsh accent.

I think I might concur about that Welsh accent, LOL.  Can you tell us a little bit more about the book and how to find it?

Wait Until Moonrise . . .

Unseen. Unheard. Untouched. Welshman Nicholas Pierce is cursed to endure a lonely eternity surrounded by the living residents of Beaumarith Castle. But two hundred-plus years into his hellish existence, Bria Leighton arrives…and she can see him! Can he convince her that he’s real—not a ghost—and that she is the one true love who can save him…before the sorceress who cursed him destroys Bria, too?

And, last, can you tell us about you?

I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, typing my first story on a typewriter my dad borrowed from his office when I was about eleven years old. I’ve won awards for published and unpublished novels, and I spend some of my writing time on web articles that cover topics such as choosing the perfect flower girl dress or how to process credit cards for small businesses. I’m married to my high school sweetie, who shares my love for romantic comedies, musicals, and action pictures—and he’s a singer who hosts the longest running karaoke ‘show’ in Houston. We have two grown sons that I think would make great book cover models—but I just can’t convince either of them to do it!

Fantastic!  I’ve really enjoyed having you here, Teri!  And Wait Until Moonrise is a beautiful story.  Everyone should pick it up!  But, two lucky commenters are going to get the chance to win it now.  So, tell us, if you had the chance to travel back in time, when or where would you go?  What adventures would you have?  I’d love to know!

  1. I enjoyed Teri’s interview on your blog. To answer the question if I could go back in time which era would I choose, I would say: The Garden of Eden BEFORE Eve listened to the serpent. It sounds like it was perfect, perfect weather, perfect health, speaking with God in person on a daily basis, no violence or depression or fear. Just goodness and joy. I might even have advised my friend Eve to not listen to the serpent…but therein lies the suspense of the story! Thanks for listening.

  2. Hi Teri! Thank you so much for guest blogging. And for all my readers, if you enjoyed Murder, Mayhem and Mama, with the ghost, you should enough Wait Until Moonrise. Oh… to answer the question myself. If I could go back, it wouldn’t be before cars and air conditioning. I don’t like it too hot and I don’t want to smell horse poo in my travels. LOL.


  3. Great blog Teri! Your book sounds intriguing and I just love your character’s names. The whole idea of time travel has always seemed magical to me. Love the title, too!

  4. Thanks, Jan. The original title was Wait Until Moonrise, Beloved, but I decided to drop the last part. This book won the Emily award for Best Paranormal Romance back in 2003…gosh, I didn’t realize it was so long ago! I sat on the book for a long time before doing the last rewrite and publishing it last year. That rewrite included changing Bria’s name from Laura—I’d written my suspense Deadly Climb in the meantime, and that heroine’s name was Laura so I didn’t want to repeat.

  5. Time Travel is an escape which always is appealing and wonderful. Thanks for this great post and feature. I would like to visit Italy in the 1950’s.

  6. American Scientific and Surplus (www.sciplus.com) has lots of good things for boys, at very good prices. My nephews have greatly enjoyed many things that I've bought there and given them for their birthdays or for Christmas; I'm less sure that their parents enjoyed them, but the presents weren't for the parents.
