Guest Post: Gemma from Charade

Today I have the wonderful Gemma from Cambria Hebert’s newest novel, Charade! Feel free to check out my review and then dig into some tough questions with the newest cast member in this great series!

First: The book!

Blurb:

Dying at the hands of a psycho was a shock. Having my life returned to me by an angel was
incredible. Being named a Supernatural Treasure and being given Sam as my guard was
pretty darn awesome. Acquiring a debt for it all—well, I should have seen it coming.

Now here we are, fighting demons from Hell, caring for a boy that I just don’t trust, and
traveling to faraway places to return a treasure to its rightful place. Nothing is as it seems.
Everyone wears a mask; everyone puts on a charade. It’s up to us to separate the truth from
the lies and reality from fiction. A hard task when my new reality involves fallen angels,
witches and dragons… and did I mention Hell?

Anchoring me down through it all is Sam. Sam, who must face tragedies of his own and is
put to the test again and again.

If we fail in our task, life as we know it—life as you know it—will end. Forever.

Guest Post: Adrienne deWolfe

Today I have with me Adrienne deWolfe, author of “How to Write Wildly Popular Romances” to talk a bit about intuition. There’s some good tips in here, so follow through til the end. She also has a raffle going on in May, so don’t forget to check that out also!

Real Magic:  Intuition Helps Author Write Books

By Adrienne deWolfe

Writing fiction has always felt like magic to me — especially when I’m in the creative flow, and ideas are pouring through my brain faster than I can type. I’ve heard other writers describe this flood of imagination  as the whispering of their “Writing Muse.”

But what exactly is a Writing Muse? Continue reading Guest Post: Adrienne deWolfe

Guest Post: Carroll Bryant

Today I have YA author/poet/songwriter Carroll Bryant here for a little Q&A session. Before you dig into this interview, make sure you check out his new release, “Of The Light.”
TK: Why did you choose to write YA?

CB: I didn’t really choose it as much as it chose me. That and the fact that when I was younger, I had the best time of my life. It wasn’t until I hit 30 when life appeared to start slowing down a little. I realized that life is more exciting when you’re young so I gravitated to YA for that purpose. I think it’s because when you’re young, and on the cusp of adulthood or early stages of it, you’re allowed to do things that you won’t be allowed to do when you’re older. You’re allowed to make your mistakes. That and the fact that basically, the whole world is at your feet. I mean, there’s so many people you can choose to be at that age. Youth is a lot of fun. At least, it was for me. Not that aging is all that bad. But younger, life moves pretty fast. And I miss that. So I guess I relive those days through my characters.

Guest Post: “Uncle Bill”

There it is Kiddies, the Kristufek House! Yeah, yeah, I know what the doctor said but surely, it’ll be fine if we just stop by and take a peek. You know, for old time’s sake. Oh my, Kiddies, it just like we left it, except for the house coat and slippers that is. The police are still holding those for evidence. And look, the window is still unlocked. Restraining order? I’m sure Ms. Kristufek didn’t mean it when she filed that against us. Come now, Kiddies, this was just meant to be.

Just let me get comfortable now and… Oh my, I see someone has been doing a little writing. Hmmm, The Finder. He he he, let’s hope no one finds us here or your Dear Old Uncle Bill will be fitted for one of those special jackets again.

Okay now, let’s get down to business. I have a little treat for all you Kiddies tonight, a little tale of death and despair. What other kind is there? It’s a little something from your Dear Old Uncle Bill’s Remnants of the Past series. Now sit back, Kiddies, while I read.

Today as part of the Making Connections Book Tour, I have with me Alexandra Dench, one of the characters in Alecia Stone’s book “Talisman of El.” Please make sure you check out my review, and I hope you enjoy Alex as much as I do!
Alecia: I’m very fond of many of the characters from Talisman Of El, but there are one or two I have a soft spot for. Alexandra Dench is a character I really enjoyed writing about. I would like to introduce her to you so you can get to know a little more about her. Continue reading Guest Post: Alexandra Dench

Now, let’s delve into the Miraculous! Continue reading Guest Post: Eliza Mada Dalian

Guest Post: Nicola Black

Today I bring to you a book of poetry by Nicola Black as part of the Making Connections book tour. First, a little Q&A with Nicola!

TK: Since this is a book of poems, do you have a favorite? One that speaks to you above the others?

NB: I think it would be a toss up between Tell Me and He Was There.  They both started as songs for me, and I catch myself singing them sometimes. They represent two prominent  areas of my life.  Tell Me questions existent and wonders if there’s a purpose for an individual, and He Was There, though written before I started dating my boyfriend, really describes our relationship and how I feel about him.  *blushes*
TK: Where do you get your inspiration from?
NB: My inspiration was from life really.  Observing it and experiencing it.  Going through the usual teen angst and coming out the other side more mature and secure.  And of course I am influenced by different mediums.  I see something on TV or read something, and it just clicks for me.  I have to write something down then.
TK: Who’s your favorite author? Genre?
NB: My favorite author is Charles Dickens actually.  But my favorite genre is fantasy.  Kind of a contradiction I think. 🙂
TK: What are you working on now? Can you give us an idea of what you’re novels will be about?
NB: I’m working on three novels and a collection of short stories.  The first novel I started was A Spy of Kings.  It’s about a young spy in another world who is sent on a dangerous mission with her dragon.  Along the way, she meets sarcastic Arnold the warlock, and charming Jaquoven Wolf, the crime lord. The second book I’m working on is Telepathetic. Kiera thinks she’s going insane because she hears a voice in her head. But the voice insists that he’s real. The newest novel is an experiment for me.  It’s called Numb Killings and is about a woman telling of her murders from person. It’s not too gory though. My collection of short stories is entitled Nightmares and Dreams.  I have a friend who describes them as psychological thrillers.
TK: Great! Thanks for stopping by, Nicola. Now, here’s more about her book: Continue reading Guest Post: Nicola Black

Guest Post: Lizzy Ford

Today I have the pleasure of having the FABULOUS Lizzy Ford stopping by for a guest post! In case you missed my reviews, Lizzy is the author of the Rhyn Trilogy – I highly suggest you get these books. They are quick reads and full of plot twists and loveable/hateable characters. In addition to all this writing, Lizzy maintains her blog, husband, dogs and cat. She’s like a writing superhero!

Make sure you read this one the entire way through – especially aspiring/new authors – as Lizzy gives some GREAT advice for how to present your manuscript (as well as yourself, online).
