Breaking Waves Tour Stop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Danielle Sibarium's Breaking Waves! Today I have all the info--on Danielle and her books--along with a super fun interview and a giveaway! Enjoy!

The Author
Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.

Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.

Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.

The Books
Heart Waves
Jenna Kingsley has a gift. She knows things. With a simple touch she can pick up personal information from jewelry or objects. While at a neighbor’s party, a voice mesmerizes her. Jenna is momentarily frozen as a ring is placed in her hand. White electricity surges through her and a dire prediction is made. “It’s like Romeo and Juliet. You’re going to break my heart.”

From the moment they meet Jenna is enchanted and entranced with Reece Walton. She’s thrilled to learn he’s spending the summer two houses away from hers. Every moment they spend together is magical. But she can’t get the prediction out of her mind. As the summer draws to a close and secrets are revealed, can Jenna get past the fear of being left with a broken heart to live in the moment with Reece or will her fear of being hurt fulfill the prophecy?

Breaking the Waves
From the moment they met, Jenna knew Reece would break her heart, but she never dreamed it would happen like this. Jenna is left shattered and broken. When life becomes too painful to deal with and she feels completely alone, there’s only one person to help her pick up the pieces and move on. The one person she doesn’t want to turn to. The one person she promised to stay away from. Tyler. 

Can Jenna put aside everything she knows about him and let Tyler help heal her broken heart?

The Interview
Jenna Kingsley can read personal information about someone when she touches an object of theirs. What would she read when touching the following items?

The Beast's mirror from Beauty and the Beast.
You are not what you show yourself to be. You have an angry gruff exterior, yet inside you're hurting, longing for what you believe you will never have. I see you looking back into the past with deep regret, trying to find a way to go back and change the consequences of your actions. You need to learn from your mistakes and apply those lessons to what is still to come. You can only change the future.

Michael Jackson's glove.
On the outside, people think you are strong and powerful, on top of the world. That's not who you truly are. You are frightened and hurt by the insincerity and violence around you. You can't trust anyone. Only children. They make you smile, they are your sunlight. You want to be with them always because they are pure and innocent. They don't hate based on race or color or disability. They are not after you because of the things you possess. They are with you because you are like them. When they are hurt you want to help them. You wish to always see the world through the eyes of a child.

Katniss Everdeen's mockingjay pin.
Love and loyalty lead to emotional reactions. There is nothing you will not do in the name of love and honor. You do all you can to protect the people you love. You thrive in pressure situations, between your skill and making rational split second decisions. These choices, while leading you onto a path of glory, have also marked you. You are in danger. Grave danger.

The ring when it's in Smeagol's possession in The Lord of the Rings.
You feel you have a treasure. A powerful prize with magic deep in its roots. It isn't what it seems. You feel like you must have it, you must hide it, keep it close to you. You know it is hurting you, eating away at your soul, yet you cannot let it go. As much as you love it, you despise it. You must get rid of this or it will destroy you!

Cinderella's glass slipper.
Your life has not been an easy one. You've been alone and hurting most of your life. You've cried a sea of tears and yearned for love and acceptance from selfish, self-centered people who didn't know how to give it. That is all behind you now. You've found true love. Only it won't come easy. You have to fight for it, and if you do, he will give you the world. And just like a fairytale, you'll live happily ever after.
