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’s new release is a tad different from my others. It’s a screenplay called A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan and is currently in pre-production with Radowski Films.
Loved Dexter and American Psycho? Then you’ll love A Good Man. Louis Caron is a good man – vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he’s a vampire – and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis’ attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about. Continue reading New Release: A Good Man →

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 →
Today I have with me Eliza Mada Dalian, author of “In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness” to tell us a little more about her book and where you can find it. Being endorsed by Deepak Chopra as “… an elegant map of the path of enlightenment,” Dalian’s book is a “step-by-step road map to everyone’s journey out of fear, pain, and suffering.”
Now, let’s delve into the Miraculous! Continue reading Guest Post: Eliza Mada Dalian →
Today I have with me Kersten Kelly, author of ec·o·nom·ics: a simple twist on normalcy, here with some information about her book. While I haven’t read the book, it does look interesting in its use of pop culture and social media, among other things, to explain economics.

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.
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).

Today’s post is a little bitter-sweet. My pal Jenn brought this to my attention, and I felt like I should post it also. While not really a “guest post,” I hope you will read on to see the strength of this woman and what challenges she has overcome. I’m sure there’s a lesson in there, somewhere…
Melynda from Crazy World lost her eyesight. We’re very good friends and her loss broke my heart. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please go here:

Today I have the pleasure of having JC Andrijeski, author of the Allie’s War series, here to talk about character creation. JC’s writing flows along, her characters taking on a life of their own – and now we know why! She’s in the middle of a blog tour and kindly let me join in the fun! While I’ve only read the first book in her series so far, I can say I was hooked and can’t wait to read the rest of them!
So go grab your coffee and see this post through to the end (it’s a bit long but totally worth it). Leave a comment if you write your characters this way also, or if you don’t, what do you do instead. Now, here’s JC! Continue reading Guest Post: JC Andrijeski →
