Lost Eden by G.P. Ching: Book Blitz, Guest Post, and Excerpt


Malini’s favorite things
(Character Guest Post)

‘Tis the season to give thanks, readers! With the release of book five in the Soulkeepers series, Malini won’t stop talking to me about all of the things she wants you to know. Today, she made me promise to gab about a few of her favorite organizations, the ones she thinks are doing a lot of good in the world.


See, as Healer, Malini is the charitable sort. She’s interested first in helping others. So, for today’s guest post, I’m featuring three charities that Malini endorses as effective Healers of our non-fictional world.


Compassion International: This organization connects sponsors with needy children across the globe to provide basic needs, education, and health care with the goal of lifting them from the cycle of poverty. I know what you’re thinking. How much REALLY gets to the kids. Well, in the case of CI, most of it. The organization has earned the highest rating from Charity Navigator for twelve consecutive years for being one of the most efficiently run charitable organizations out there. Beyond that, I was privileged to have two close personal friends travel to Africa this year to see the results first hand. You can read about their journey here. (The Ching household is privileged to sponsor Juan Daniel from Peru.) http://www.compassion.com


The Carter Center: Former president Jimmy Carter and his wife help lead the Carter Foundation, a charitable organization guided by a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering; it seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.*  What I love about the Carter Foundation is they have very specific and obtainable goals and the foundation is achieving measurable results. Take the guinea worm. This parasite once infected 3.5 million people in Africa in 1986. Thanks to the Carter foundation, there were only 542 reported cases in 2012. The Carter Center does not duplicate the efforts of other effective charities and also has the top rating by Charity Navigator. http://www.cartercenter.org/index.html


The Conservation Fund: Malini would certainly be concerned about our planet and I think she’d love what The Conservation Fund is doing. This highly rated charity finds ways to preserve the environment while balancing economic development for sustainable results. The fund has protected 7 million acres across America. http://www.conservationfund.org


Okay, okay. *Slaps Malini’s hands back from the keyboard* Geesh, characters can be so bossy! Malini would also like you to know that anything you do for others, even on the smallest, most personal level, is a form of Healing, and she thanks you for your help. As Mother Theresa once said, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”


Thank you for visiting today. Malini and I hope you enjoy Lost Eden.


Lost Eden by G.P. Ching
(The Soulkeepers #5)
Publication date: November 18th 2013
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult


Rules. Balance. Consequences. War.

When Fate gave Dane the water from Eden to drink, she did more than save his life. She changed his destiny.

Since the beginning, a compact between God and Lucifer has maintained a tenuous peace, balancing Soulkeepers and Watchers and the natural order of things. Dane upset that balance the day he became a Soulkeeper. Fate broke the rules.

Now, Lucifer is demanding a consequence, requiring Fate to pay the ultimate price for her involvement. God intervenes on the immortal’s behalf but in order to save her soul must dissolve the compact and with it the rules, order, and balance that have kept the peace. A challenge is issued. A contest for human souls begins. And the stakes? Earth. Winner take all.

The Soulkeepers are at the center of a war between Heaven and Hell, and this time, nobody, anywhere, is safe from Lucifer’s reach.

God approached him, the air crackling with her presence. The back of Lucifer’s head glowed brassy in her light. “Very well. What is your suggested price?”

“My price is Fate. She has been in her position far too long. I will choose her replacement, and she will step down.”

“No!” Fatima yelled, her hands flying to cover her foolhardy mouth. Why had she allowed her true feelings to show? Now he’d be even more likely to use those feelings against her.

He turned the force of his stare on her, laughing through a toothy half smile. “Oh yes, Fatima. Perhaps, I will not only choose your replacement but take your soul as my own.” In a blink, he was in her face, his hand on the small of her back. Her skin squirmed beneath his touch. “You are a beautiful sinner. Hell, could use an ornament such as you.”

“Let her go.” A wash of cool light poured through the room, and Lucifer retreated, joints folding unnaturally in his haste for the shadows. “The Watchers who reside on Earth negate your ability to make such a demand. You are in breach of the law, Lucifer. You must return your minions to Nod or Hell.”

“Or what?” Lucifer carefully slithered into the shadow of a bolt of fabric where his eyes could open fully.

“Or the compact is rendered null and void.”

“War.” The word rolled off of his tongue, smooth as melted butter.
