Born on August 25th, 2016

Babies are all the rage when you’re in your late twenties. After countless questions about when I’ll have a baby, it’s finally happening! I’m having my first baby, my novel! The pregnancy began in June of 2015.

The First Trimester: There was so much to think about… Names, doctors, what the characters will look like. Picking the perfect name was high on my list of things to do. I settled on Bleeding Hearts after many chats with my friend HollyI started this crazy idea of mine and finished the complete book within two months.

This is NOT the cover of my book.

 

The road to publication has been rough, to say the least. My good friend, Alyssa was the first to experience my mood swings as she tore through the first, initial edits to help shape the outcome of my book baby. If I didn’t start off in the right direction, my baby would come out with some birth defects. We worked together, and she chose her words carefully as Alyssa knew a first time mother might strike back at her suggestions.

My ambition to find the right doctor to produce my book was high. I researched, joined contests, and queried for several months. That’s when the stress really started. I had worried that I’d never be able to find someone who would want to help birth my book, but I did! Back in February 2015, Stephanie Taylor, book expert, lovely person, and owner of Clean Reads offered to be the one to bring my book to life. She was exactly what I had wanted in a book doctor.  

The Second Trimester: Usually this is when things calm down, but not for me. With edits every month for three months, this was a hard road as my nausea lasted a little longer than expected. Each time I’d send in edits, I felt my baby book was growing! Bleeding Hearts was going to be an amazing novel, I just knew it! During this time, I had many doubts that my book wouldn’t make the cut, that somehow, Stephanie would cut me as a patient. We hung in there through several anxiety filled emails asking countless amounts of questions and sharing my worries with her. She always gave me the answers I needed to make the months pass by quickly. 

The Third Trimester: Finally, it’s the home stretch. After several joined book parties and winning gifts, to keep me at ease, from my Clean Reads family, the time has come. It’s this period in your pregnancy that you get a finalized due date. In just two short months, on August 25th, 2016, my dream come true of having my fist book is going to be a reality. Mark your calendars! My book baby will be available for purchase as EBook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble. 

Stalk my Facebook page to find out more information. I will be hosting an online Facebook Release Party the following Saturday, 8/27 for my book so watch out for that!

Here is a blurb of my book along with two of my favorite memes!

Bleeding Hearts is a story about a young woman willing to put her heart on the line to find the perfect man.

Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.  

Red roses, a reminder of her parents’ killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.   

Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-colored bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighboring police officer. She’s desperate to escape the haunting memories, but she must revisit them in order to catch her would-be killer. Living life in constant fear has driven Cami to second-guess every choice she makes. Will the police catch the illusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?

Again… As a reminder, Bleeding Hearts will be released on August 25, 2016

Sunshine Blogger Awards

Victoria Greenwell tagged me in the Sunshine Blogger Awards along with 10 other lovely bloggers.  Thank you so much for tagging me! So, what do I have to do?

Here are the rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award:

• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Answer the 11 questions you’ve been asked.
• Nominate 11 other bloggers, making sure to let each one know that they are nominated.
• Ask the nominees 11 questions.

Below are the questions I received:

  1. If you dress up for Halloween, cosplay, or other less commonly accepted occasions, describe your last two costumes. Okay, last Halloween I was half a vampire. Yes, I mean half. I painted my face, wore fake teeth, and wore a cape. But underneath that cape, I was a normal human, jeans and a sweatshirt. Then last June, I went to a ren faire and fully dressed up as a forest princess.danaren
  2. What movie or tv show would you consider a guilty pleasure? I love any variation of Cinderella!
  3. If you could live in any fictional world (whether it’s yours or someone else’s creation), where would you live and why? I kind of want to live in Shadowland. It’s a world, total opposite of ours that my sister and I made up. It rains upside down and the drops are black. And trash grows into brick buildings and disappears. Cool? I think so. I’d want to just see the world I’d created.
  4. You’ve been imprisoned for high treason and have been sentenced to death and there is no chance that the governor is going to call. Describe in detail your last meal. I think I would just want a pineapple upside down cake.
  5. Answer one of these or both: Name your favorite Doctor on Doctor Who. Name your favorite James Bond. Daniel Craig. Hands down.
  6. If you could choose any piece of music or song to be your theme song, what would it be? My Day by Danielle Bradberry.
  7. Concerning sleep, do you consider it a wondrous thing that you just can’t get enough of, or are you one of those “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” people? I love sleep but I am also one of those “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” people.
  8. Has any character that you’ve created ever done anything that took you by surprise? Yes! Cami from Bleeding Hearts is one character I couldn’t control! She tends to make some decisions that I wouldn’t necessarily make.
  9. Describe something from a movie, book or tv where you would have written it better. I actually don’t think about writing things better. Authors and screenwriters have their own way of doing things and I don’t feel like I could do better than them. 🙂
  10. Are you a shipper? If so, name some of the ships that you love. (For example, if you watch the Flash and you think Barry and Caitlyn should get together, that means you are shipper for SnowBarry.) I have a wonderful Ship name for two of my characters in my book Bleeding Hearts. Issami! Read to find out who they are!!
  11. Sentence fragments. Love them or hate them? I actually like them. I feel like they serve a purpose but don’t over use them!

So, there are my 11 questions answered. Now, here are the questions I’d like answered:

  1. What is your middle name?
  2. When did you first learn how to ride a bike?
  3. Are you the kind of person that likes to plan things or go out on a whim?
  4. What is your favorite thing to wear?
  5. Name a country then explain why you named it?
  6. What is your occupation?
  7. If you could own only one animal, what would it be?
  8. Which element do you relate to the most? Why? Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Spirit.
  9. Are you planning any vacations this year? If so, where?
  10. Name your favorite book?
  11. Lastly, do you believe that there are aliens in space?

Interview with Dana Provo

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you! I’m back today with a guest! Her name is Dana Provo and she has a new book that’s coming soon, titled “Bleeding Hearts!”  I thought I’d introduce her and give all of you a heads up about her! Below is her interview! Check it out!

image1.JPG

Author Bio: Dana Provo has always loved books and reads everything from young adult fantasy to adult historical romances. When she’s not reading or writing her next novel, Dana can be found riding her horses and getting ready for competition. Dana lives with her husband and two house plants in Richmond, Virginia.

  1. Can you tell us a little bit about your writing process?

I am an outliner. When I come up with a story idea, the characters come first then the plot. I write down everything from looks to personality to favorite color so I know…

Meet Bill Blume

Everyone has heard of vampires. Everyone knows that there are vampire hunters. But what you don’t know is that Gidion is one kick-butt vampire hunter. Here’s what Gidion has to deal with in his first book

Hunting vampires is a Keep family tradition. Dad quit the business over a decade ago when Mom was killed, so Grandpa has been teaching Gidion in secret to take up the hunt. As Gidion closes in on the local coven, he discovers their plans to kill one of his teachers and a girl from another school. One of his best friends might be the key to finding the vampires’ lair… if he can be trusted.

Bill-Blume-Canal-Walk-Headshot-01As a Richmond-bound author, Bill Blume is a member of James River Writers and hosts a local writing group at the Urban Farmhouse in Midlothian every Thursday from 6-8 pm. I’m happy to say I am part of that group and have met some amazing people there.

Bill, what inspired you to write your first book?  I was about 40,000 words into another manuscript, and everything was working for me. One (BIG) problem: my relationship with that story was toxic. It tapped into a lot of bad things in my life at that time. I even smashed a wooden sword against a tree in my anger at one point. My wife helped me through that time with one question: “What is it you really want to write?” I’d always known the answer.  I wanted to write the best damn vampire hunter novel anyone had ever read. That book was Gidion’s Huntbill blume Gidions-Hunt-cover

It sounds like you already knew what you wanted. How long have you been writing?  I got the urge to write back in high school, so that makes it a lot longer than I probably should admit (it’s more than a quarter century). My biggest struggle as a writer in those early days was born from trying to write a novel before I’d really done much reading. Except for comic books, I was a terrible reader until my senior year in high school.

Are you an outliner or pantser? I’m more pantser than outliner, but I’m more of a hybrid. I usually know a few key moments I’m writing to in the book, but I let my characters lead me there naturally. If the characters make it clear they need to go a different plot point than I originally intended, I’m willing to change it. For my second book, Gidion’s Blood, I was forced to outline the first half of the book, though. It’s only told from Gidion’s point of view, so I needed to create a timeline of what would be happening so Gidion would also be reacting to the actions of the vampires hunting him instead of the vampires simply responding to what Gidion was doing. That added a lot more tension to the story.

How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?  It varies a lot for me, but both of the first two books in the Gidion Keep, Vampire Hunter series were written over the course of a little more than a year. That’s somewhat deceptive, though. A lot of that time included periods where I wasn’t able to write at all. For the second book, I even lost a month, because I’d broken one of the fingers in my left hand.

It varies for me too. Sometimes you get a story that just won’t leave you alone and you can write on it for hours on end, then there are the others. Lol. Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?  Writer’s Block can come from different places. Sometimes it’s a scene where you’re pushing your characters into doing something that’s wrong for them. When that happens, try to look back and figure out what other paths your characters might take. Odds favor you’ve recently taken a wrong turn in your manuscript. I actually wrote a goofy set of blog posts about that. Just don’t panic. Sometimes the answer is much simpler than you might think. (Blog Posts: https://billblume.wordpress.com/2014/06/05/that-manuscript-is-wrong-for-you/, https://billblume.wordpress.com/2014/06/11/dont-be-a-taylor-swift-writer/ )

What are your hobbies aside from writing?  I’m addicted to fantasy football, so much so that it’s tough to write during football season. A co-worker got me hooked on it back in 2009. I now run several leagues, and my favorite is a league with comic book themed teams. There are two divisions, one for Marvel Comics and the other for DC Comics. My son has even owned a team in that league for several years; he takes great pride in beating me when he does. I only play for pride, though. Playing or money would be too stressful.

pariscataWhere is one place you want to visit that you haven’t been before?  I want to visit Paris. While the food would be fun, my real reason is to visit the Paris Catacombs. There’s a whole culture down there, and I’m determined to take Gidion Keep there in one of his future adventures, but that’s a long ways off.

I’ve always wanted to go to Paris. France is so mesmerizing. So, if I randomly gave you an island, what would you name it? And who would live there with you?  I would name the island Iridia. The name comes from a kingdom my wife and I created for a fantasy novel that we wrote together (I’m hoping it will eventually get published). My wife loves beaches, so naturally, I want her there. Our kids would get to visit. The list of friends I’d let come there would be too long to write here.

Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten.  The weirdest thing? I might be blocking the memory of something, but the first thing that comes to mind is pork cheeks. They are SOOOOOO good! One of my favorite restaurants in Richmond made them, and they were tender and delicious, like little balls of beef stew without the veggies. Some people might consider octopus weirder (I love octopus!), but I think it’s a toss-up.

I’m not sure I’m brave enough to try those. If you could bring one of your characters to life, who would it be?  Just one?! GAH! I don’t think I can answer that. That’s like trying to pick a favorite child. No way. I suspect the answer would be Gidion Keep, but that feels a bit like a copout. Besides, I already have two teenage children to deal with. A third would be too much.

Do you have any advice for other writers?  The most important thing is to get your butt in the chair and get it done. It’s too easy to prioritize your writing as something less than important in your life, but sometimes your time to write needs to get the top spot. I’ve neglected my wife and kids, taken time off from work to write instead of going on vacation. I’m blessed with a family that understands why I do it, and they even encourage me to get out and write sometimes. If I don’t get to write, I can turn surly. They’d rather I go write and come back more pleasant.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?  I’m in the middle of two projects. I’m waiting to hear back from my beta readers on a non-Gidion Keep, young adult novel that is an epic fantasy reimagining of Red Badge of Courage. While I loved that book in high school, so many others hate it. That divisiveness makes it perfect for a reimagining. While I await my beta readers’ responses, I’m doing research for another young adult urban fantasy that will be set here in Richmond, but this won’t be a Gidion Keep novel. All I’ll say about that bill blume Gidions-Blood-front-coverfor now is that my research is focusing on schizophrenia.

Thanks for chatting with me, Bill. If you are interested in purchasing Gidion’s Hunt, please do so on Amazon or get an autographed copy at Fountain Bookstore.

For the purchase of Gidion’s Blood, you can go to Amazon or for an autographed copy, go to Fountain Bookstore.

Genesis Girl Book Review

What is the Genesis Girl? Jennifer Bardsley has created an amazing story about Vestals, Viruses, and living life separated by technology.Genesis Girl Cover

Eighteen-year-old Blanca has lived a sheltered life. Her entire childhood has been spent at Tabula Rasa School where she’s been protected from the Internet. Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint has made her extremely valuable and upon graduation Blanca, and those like her, are sold to the highest bidders. Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But the McNeal’s are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is. All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost impenetrable. By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only chance of escape is to go online.
For me, it can take a few days to a couple months to read a book. It depends on how captivated I am with the story and the characters. Genesis Girl threw me for a loop with the very first sentence. It wasn’t my favorite way to start the book, but I kept reading and boy am I glad I did. This book only took me two days to read. I was floored by the plot, characters, and writing. Jennifer Bardsley is a phenomenal writer.
What was my favorite part of this book? I’d have to say the creation of technology and how Jennifer made it seem so real. These days, people are always on their phones, always blogging, never getting a break from computer screens. In Genesis Girl, there are the Vestals. They are pure, free from technology and innocent from the corruptions of the world. I love the main character, Blanca, and her arc through the entire book.
Would I recommend this book to others? YES! Over and over and over again. I suggest everyone get their copy when it’s released. You will be amazed by Genesis Girl, just like I was. Teens and adults of all ages would have fun reading this spectacular book. I give this book five stars!

5starsJennifer Bardsley is the author of GENESIS GIRL, which debuts September 27, 2016 from Jennifer Bardsley-genesis girlMonth9Books. She also writes the column “I Brake for Moms” for the Sunday edition of The Everett Daily Herald and blogs at Teaching My Baby to Read. Jennifer is a graduate of Stanford University and a member of SCBWI. She lives with her husband and two children in Edmonds, WA. Jennifer is represented by Liza Fleissig of the Liza Royce Literary Agency LLC.

AUTHOR CARYN MCGILL

What’s so special about today? It feels like another plain Friday, but it’s not. Someone’s celebrating their birthday, people are buying new homes, starting new jobs, publishing their first book. Someone out there is having the best day of their life! 

June 10th is a great day to read, to write, and to learn about another great, talented author. Today I’m introducing Caryn McGill, my new friend! 

Caryn McGill has immersed herself in a lifelong study of religion, astrology, reincarnation, and past-life regressions. This otherworldly journey coupled with her decades spent teaching science has produced her debut novel, The Wives of Lucifer. Born on New York’s Long Island, Caryn McGill resided on its bucolic East End until a recent move to Richmond, Virginia, where she’s currently finishing her second novel.

Let’s get to know more about her!carynbookcover

The WIVES OF LUCIFER is published by The Wild Rose Press.

Olivia loves her new immortal life, her friends and especially Drew; she never thought she’d fall in love on the other side of death. But when Olivia learns she bears the mark of Lucifer and has powers that tie her to the Underworld, she worries that perhaps she’s done terrible things in her past lives and dark secrets are being kept from her. And those damn wives, what do they want from her? Olivia endures unspeakable tragedy in The Wives of Lucifer and when she discovers what fate has in store for her…she suddenly understands that being immortal doesn’t guarantee you’ll live forever.

Caryn, what inspired you to write your first book? I had a curiosity about death at an early age after my little brother died. My imagination has always toyed with what happens after we die. I finally had to write it.

How long have you been writing? I’ve been writing for eight years. I never intended to be a writer but I unexpectedly found myself possessed by this character. It felt like I channeled her. I know…weird.

Are you an outliner or pantser? I’m definitely a pantser. I write scenes without much regard for the overall plot. I eventually put them in order and weave in details and background to make the story flow.

How long, on average, does it take you to write a book? I usually finish a first draft in about three months. I then rewrite for six to eight months before I’ll let anyone read it.

When did you first consider yourself a writer? I first considered myself a writer when I went to a pitch conference in New York City and editors/agents were interested in my manuscript. Until that point I thought I was chasing an unrealistic fantasy.

Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block? I don’t really suffer from writer’s block I suffer from “editing block”. Writing the story is fun, but editing can be torture. I find putting the story away for a few weeks helps. When it starts to niggle at me again, like an old friend I miss, I get excited about rewriting.

What are your hobbies aside from writing? I’m a glass fusion artist. I make plates and other decorative wares for the home.

 

Where is one place you want to visit that you haven’t been before? I’d love to visit Alaska. I love the cold weather and find the flora and fauna of the northern latitudes fascinating. I incorporated this biome in my debut novel by making hell a frigid tundra.

You were just given an Island. What would you name it? And who would live there with you? I’d name it Peace Island. Only pacifists would be allowed. No intolerance would be tolerated! (I know, kind of an oxymoron.)

Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten. I went to a Chinese New Year celebration once. We had jellyfish and sea urchin. Not a fan of either…

carynart3If you could bring one of your characters to life, who would it be? One of my antagonists, Ravana. Although she’s scary, she cracks me up with her wit and sarcasm. I’d love to take her to a party.

Do you have any advice for other writers? My motto is “Never Stop Dreaming”, because if you dream it, it can come true. I never thought I’d sell a book to a traditional publisher.

That’s great advice! If you want to stay updated on Caryn and her books you can follow her on FacebookTwitterWebsiteWriteonsisters Blog.

You can also purchase The Wives of Lucifer on Amazon or Wild Rose Press.

Thank you so much for talking and answering all my questions. I can’t wait to read your book!!

If anyone else has a suggestion for an interview, please let me know!

Artemis Grey and her book Catskin

This author is published through Clean Reads and has an amazing new book! Catskin is a contemporary YA set in Alaska. It follows Ansel, an albino Athabascan boy, who happens to find a runaway girl hiding on his property. The ensuing story will hopefully make readers reevaluate what it means to be family, and realize that normal is what you make it.

Artemis, can you tell me what inspired you to write your book?  Um, I don’t think I was ever “inspired” to write. It’s simply always been an ingrained drive inside me, a need to get ink onto paper.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?  This varies widely. When I was working on the farm (a six hundred acre estate) I had the ability to write on lunch break, and even add a sentence here and there throughout the day. Mentally and emotionally I was completely content, and even when I was working, I had the ability to think constantly about whatever story I was working on. Now that I’m at a job where I can’t daydream while there, can’t stop to jot notes or plot points and don’t get a lunch break (I work at a Tavern open for midday fare, so no lunch break) it’s a lot more difficult to get words down. Even when I finally get home, there’s a decompression process, so my writing time is severely curbed. At the farm, I could get a first draft for a 80k-100k story in a month or two. Now, it’s more like 5-6 months.

Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?   I’ve never actually gotten writer’s block. I have a huge backlog of story ideas, and partial starts, and since I’m someone who can work on multiple WIPs at a time, if I get stalled on one project, I just move to another one.

Sounds great! What are some of your hobbies aside from writing the next best seller?  Riding horses, herding cats, doing yard work. I also paint, and usually the results are either given as gifts, or donating to the Wildlife Center Of Virginia for their yearly fundraising auction.

Very cool! What is one place you want to visit that you haven’t been?  ICELANDartemis

Tea or coffee? Mostly coffee, black. But I do love tea as well. And my favorite today is hot water with lime, honey, a piece of ginger root, and a dram of moonshine.

If I randomly gave you an island, what would you name it? And who would live there with you?  First of, my island is going to be off the coast of Alaska, Nova Scotia, or Iceland. I would name it Niflheim and the spirits of the dead would live there with me, because I think they would tell amazing stories. (I know you thought I would list living people, but I like to Crazy Ivan unexpectedly)

LOL, dead people can be fun too! Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? I’m game to try most anything, but in this modern world of “foodies” I’d have to say that the weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten is probably Kiss The Devil wine, which is a specialty wine from Peaks of Otter vineyard in Virginia. It’s made from 30 different types of peppers, including the ghost pepper. No, I didn’t drink an entire glass, but I did take a full shot glass.

That sounds like something to try since I’m also right here in central Virginia. So tell me, are you a morning or night person? Both. I love mornings, and the night. If I was not required to “keep a schedule” I’d probably be up early, nap during the day, up all evening into the small hours and then nap in the night until morning. Much like the old way of cycles, where people would go to bed early, then wake in the middle of the night and do things in their homes (like letter writing and correspondence) and then go back to sleep until morning.

Three more questions: Do you have any pets? Uuuuummm… We have a herd of cats (literally) along with two horses, and one very teensy miniature donkey. And once in a while, an abandoned baby bird, which is raised until they’re fledged out, and then released.

If you could bring one of your characters to life, who would it be? Just ONE? Dang, that’s hard… I think I’ll go with Herian Hunter, who is a character no one else has met yet, from one of my WIPs, BLOODED.

Do you have any advice for other writers? Write. Just write. And read. Read whatever genre and age group you write. Also, it’s good to at least have an idea of WHY you write. For me, it’s a compulsion. I describe myself as a “scripturient” because I’m literally not happy mentally or emotionally if I’m not writing on a regular basis. So while I desperately wanted to get published, even if I’d known from the very beginning that I would never be published, I would still be writing exactly as I am now.

Thank you so much for reading all about Artemis Grey! Here is the blurb to Catskin which is now available.

catskinSometimes the only way to find yourself is to go missing…

Shy, eighteen-year-old albino, Ansel, thought that letting the runaway girl with the injured ankle sleep in his parents’ shed was a good idea. That was before she passed out in his shower, woke up in a panic and accidentally attacked him. Any average guy would have called the cops but average isn’t Ansel’s style.

When she refuses to tell him her real name, Ansel nicknames the girl Catskin, after one of his favorite fairytale characters, and begins the dubious task of earning her trust. It’s not an easy thing to do, but a few awkward conversations later, one thing is clear: Catskin doesn’t want to be the way she is, she just doesn’t think she can change. Ansel knows from his own experiences that seeing the world around you differently doesn’t mean that you’re wrong, something he intends to teach Catskin.

While the details of her past remain elusive, Catskin creates a new place for herself with Ansel and his family, and develops her own brand of normalcy. Then a terrible accident leaves her hovering near death, and Ansel is forced to contact her estranged parents. But there are secrets hidden in the life Catskin left behind. Dark secrets that chased her all the way to Healy, Alaska and Ansel’s actions unknowingly provoke a shocking confrontation between the wealthy world Catskin was born into, and the starkly average one she now shares with Ansel.

Refusing to give up the imperfect girl who fits perfectly inside his heart, Ansel prepares to go to war with Catskin’s father. But in the end, Catskin might be the only one who can save herself.
