Blog Tour Stop: Astral Ordinance Book 2 by Meltem YK

Book Description:
With special permission from the Ascended Masters, Jayna and Ethan have a spectacular wedding in the Astral plane. Jayna’s family and close friends are also transported to the wedding and they experience the Astral plane for the first time. Life goes on in a happy monotone for the next few years. Jayna and Ethan are together every night, but they are still forbidden to see each other on the Earth plane. One morning, Jayna and Liam do not wake up from their state of suspended animation. Their family is frightened out of their wits and hold vigil by their beds. With a lot of help from Hope and guidance from the other side, the siblings finally awake. Something major has happened on the Astral plane and Jayna is not telling them the whole story, but there is no denying the sense of danger. Their almost perfect lives are about to unravel.



Cassie screamed with pain.
“How does it feel to be on the receiving end of pain, Dr. Jewel?”
“How do you know my name,” the Shadow woman asked squirming on the floor.
“I know a lot of things about you, and none of it is good. Did you feel real powerful when you had helpless people kidnapped?”
There was shock on Cassie’s grey face.
“Yeah, I know all about it. You had three innocent people killed to get your dirty hands on that gold. You are scum Cassandra Jewel.” Jayna grabbed Cassie from the floor and threw her against the wall.
Cassie cowered.
“Were you planning to go to their funeral,” Jayna asked, “and pretend you were their friend? Maybe shed a few tears?” Jayna threw a powerful punch into Cassie’s solar plexus. Cassie doubled over with pain, coughing.
“Stop it,” Cassie whispered hoarsely.
“Why should I? Tell me one good reason I should not kill you?”
Cassie coughed, still trying to catch her breath.
Jayna, that’s enough. Ethan warned her. We are not here to kill anyone.
That’s what the bitch deserves.
Jayna turned around and saw a new stack of gold plates on the dining room table. “I see, you brought more gold from the Underworld,” she said to Cassie.
She walked up to the table and scooped up the plates in her arms. They were about ten pounds. Awesome! We’ll make a few more miracles with these.
Cassie screamed with rage again. “Put those back. You can’t have them. They are mine.”
“Not on your life,” Jayna said and walked through the wall. Ethan and Colin followed her; they didn’t want to lose sight of Jayna for a second, in case the demon came back.

Astral Ordinance, Ayshen’s Story:

About the Author:

A university graduate in Economics, this mother of three and foster mother of 25 has been drawn to the world of paranormal since childhood. A devoted reader herself, Meltem Y.K has always had the aspiration to create her own brand of fantasy. 

While working full-time and raising a family, into the late hours of the night, Meltem Y.K dreamed the fantasies that only she could and created a story that's grown into the Astral Ordinance Series

I did an interview with the author and this is what she had to say...

What inspired you to write your first book?

My passion for paranormal or spiritual experiences inspired me to write the first book. The story was churning in me for a long time. Finally, the characters started coming into life and literally forcing me to write their story.

What books/authors have most influenced your life most?

In each stage of my development as a reader I read volumes and volumes of books until I had my fill that particular genre then I would progress to the next one. I loved all of Robert Ludlum’s books and could not wait for the next one, sadly he passed away. I felt like I lost a family member. I have a lot of respect for David Morrell. I learned a lot about writing from his book, The Successful Novelist: A Lifetime of Lessons about Writing and Publishing. I had a chance to meet him at a talk he gave in Waterloo, Ontario. I was in awe. Meeting him in person really inspired me.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?


What was the hardest part of writing your book?

The hardest part of writing my book was getting into the head of a very evil woman. It took me days to tune into her essence.

While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?

I never felt like one of the characters, but more like an omniscient being who can hear their every thought, feel their pain and their joy. You could hear me laughing or crying when I am writing. I am right there with the rest of the characters, living their story with them.

Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?

When I am writing, I see my characters in my mind’s eye, but I have a hard time picturing any of the celebrities I know of as being my characters. If my books are ever made into movies, I would like to see unknown actors and actresses cast into the roles.

What is your favorite positive saying?

It is much simpler to forgive then to carry the baggage for a lifetime.

What is your favorite book and why?

The Autobiography of a Yogi, written by Paramahansa Yogananda, is my favorite book. It is a wealth of information about the experiences and lives of yogis.

If you were interviewing yourself, what are the top 3 questions you would ask yourself?

·         What inspired me to write the Astral Ordinance series?

·         Is there a lesson to be learned?

·         Is there any truth to stories?

What book are you reading now?

Currently, I am reading Amanda Hocking’s Elegy.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?

Somebody once said that they “were not keen on it” referring to the first book in the series. It hurt my feelings, but I deduced that they were not keen on the genre. I write paranormal stories, so if that is not something the person enjoys it does not matter how good the story is, it just isn’t for them.

The best compliment? I recently published a short story which is a complement to my series, The Astral Ordinance. I had many people write and tell me that they wanted more, it wasn’t enough for them. That put a smile on my face.

Do you have anything specific you would like to share with your readers?

I am really into the world of paranormal and spirituality. I can’t see myself writing anything that would not have something to do with these topics. I love to write, but writing takes time and a full length novel takes a long time to write. In the future, watch for more short stories that I will release in between full length novels to complement some of the characters and events in the series.

I love hearing from my readers. I invite you to write to me at I promise to write back.
