Release Day Blitz Opaque by Calix Leigh-Reign
Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?
Not as of yet, but you never know lol
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I am a very playful person. Sometimes my facial expressions will have people believe that I’m serious or upset. 9 times out of 10, I’m thinking of something silly and laughing to myself.
When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?
I’m either in the gym, at a movie premier, listening to music, viewing art, spending quality time with my family or simply relaxing. Guilty pleasures? Pizza. It was once chocolate but chocolate doesn’t agree with my complexion lol. It’s so delicious. A bittersweet sacrifice to maintain clear skin J
Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?
Adam and Carly are tied as my faves. Adam’s imperfections and Carly’s strength are both admirable qualities.
If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?
The next installment in the Scion Saga is Split Adam. I’m extremely excited to see where Adam & Carly take me. So far, they’re both dealing with familial loss. No more spoilers for ya lol
What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?
More books! I’m drowning in manuscripts right now. So many of my characters want me to write about them but I only have 2 hands and 24 hours to work with lol. I’m currently scheduled to appear at Barnes & Noble in Palmdale on October 22nd and Barnes & Noble in Santa Monica on November 12th for the release of Opaque. I’m super excited!

"Her crimson limbal ring glows and I focus my sight as the incandescence dims. I clearly see it for sure this time. There's no denying it. Carly isn't human. She's something more - and if she isn't human, neither am I."
For those craving an untapped Sci-Fi niche - Opaque delivers in this gripping page-turner involving mutated Limbal rings, biokenretic anomalies, mental dysfunction, perplexing Russian ancestry & romance.
Cālix takes us on an adventure that begins when 16 year old misanthropic Adam unknowingly reaches biokenretic puberty, and his supernatural abilities awaken to save him from his murderous intentions. His every thought revolves around the extinction of the human race until mysterious Afro-Russian Carly Wit stumbles into his English class one morning. Adam notices something otherworldly about her immediately but denies the bio-synch taking place inside of him. As he resists their blossoming love, he battles with unnatural thoughts of his mother.
Discovering his origin isn't what he'd thought, he becomes determined to peel back the layers of his lineage and unmasks a multitude of mind-bending secrets along the way.
