Guest Author Interviews

lizlongsword3300Recently I was invited to be a guest author on three author’s sites.

Author Leslie Ann Sartor had me confessing 5 secrets about myself and my writing. These were secrets about my own life that inspired some of my novels. If you’d like to learn more, and also find out who gave me the sword I’m holding, click on Five Secrets.

Next, sci-fi romance author Diane Burton interviewed me, and you’ll find out how I can write a book in two weeks. Just click on Meet the Author.

I also made a guest appearance on Sweet Southern Author Leanne Tyler’s site where I actually interviewed my MadMan MacKeefe Scottish Highland heroes. See Interview.

Now, I’d like to mention that you can win a free kindle fire as well as amazon gift cards in the Pool Party Kindle Fire Giveaway, so be sure to enter today. You can earn 10 extra entry points by following me on twitter or just by picking up a free copy of my Daughters of the Dagger Prequel. Click the link above for more info.

And next week I will be running two 99 cent specials on amazon only. On Wednesday, Doubting Thomas - Book 1 of my Tarnished Saints Series, will be 99 cents, and on Thursday, Onyx – Book 1 of my MadMan MacKeefe Series will have the special price.

Also, my latest endeavor has been to start putting my books into print form as well as ebooks. The first book I’ll have in print and that should hopefully be ready sometime next month is Familiar – so be sure to watch for it.

Cat Lover’s Special – Free book, Familiar

Slade Spencer is a warlock in denial who must hone the skills of his Craft in order to break a shapeshifting curse to save his past lover, Susie Vasilly in Familiar.

Until June 15th, I am offering my paranormal romance, Familiar for FREE. Just click on the cover or the title to get your copy.

Familiarslade300

Slade is one of my favorite heroes. He has been accused of doing something horrible, but out of all my heroes, I’d have to say he’s probably the most like a gentleman and truly treats a woman with respect, no matter what the rest of the town thinks of him.

I had fun writing this novel and especially the character of Galen, Slade’s eccentric uncle, who has a fetish for cats – or familiars – and has three dozen of them. (Watch Familiar Book trailer video to see some of his cats.)

I also wanted to mention that I am in the process of creating a few new special pages on my website. One of them is my new recipe page. You can read about some of my characters’ favorite foods and they’ll tell you how to make them. My recipes are all original and super simple to make.

Slade always orders the same thing when he goes to the diner to see Susie. It’s his favorite lunch – Slade’s Avocado Melt Sandwich. And be sure to check out one of Susie’s favorite meals from the diner, Susie’s Barbecue Pineapple Chicken. pinechx2300

And one last thing, if you haven’t had the chance yet to pick up copies of my 99 cent presummer specials, you’d better hurry. Sunday is the last day to get The Sheik and the Siren as well as Thief of Olympus for 99 cents. Next week the prices will return to normal.

So fire up the grill and try out one of my new recipes, as I love to grill and will be having many new outdoor grilling recipes added to my site all summer. Keep an eye on the page and get to know my heroes and heroines and some of my other main characters as they tell you about their favorite recipes and how to make them.

(The recipe page is a work in progress, as Zeb is taking up most my time right now as I’m finishing up his story, Seducing Zeb which will be released by the end of the month. Watch Tarnished Saints book trailer video.)

New Release & Free Book (Tarnished Saints Series)

Hi everyone!

Welcome to My Writing Process Blog Tour, and I would like to thank medieval award-winning author, Laurel O’Donnell for inviting me to be a part of it. Please stop by her site for medieval as well as paranormal action-packed books.

Judas300Now, for my big news, Judging Judas – Book 3 in my Tarnished Saints Series is now available! Judas is the sheriff of my fictional small town of Sweet Water, Michigan. This differs from a lot of series by the fact it is about twelve sons of a preacher who are far from saints. Matter of fact, they are nothing but trouble!

This is my 30th published book, and I’d like to thank you all for your support. In celebration, and for the first time ever, I am offering Doubting Thomas, Book 1 of the series FREE from May 6-10th only. And be sure to pick up Luring LeviBook 2, as well, followed by Judging Judas.

To talk about my writing process, my idea was to have 12 brothers – each named after an apostle. Their domineering preacher father wanted them to carry on in his footsteps, but as you’ll see, the Taylor boys didn’t have the same plans. <Grin> This series is about romance, redemption and finding the will to carry on no matter what hand life deals you. And since I don’t like books to get too dark, I’ve managed to bring a little humor into the stories to keep them balanced.

My tarnished saints are just that – men who have been raised with rules and morals but also lost most of them along the way, becoming a little tarnished. They deal with real-life problems and issues that we all go through, and are forced to make decisions for a better future because of their mistakes of the past. There is a lot of inner turmoil that makes them search the depths of their souls to find forgiveness as well as to change. For example, Levi has gone to prison for tax evasion, turned in by his own brother, Judas. Ok, so I’m having fun with this idea, but beware, these are steamy romances and not G rated.

DThomas300My idea for Thunder Lake and the little town of Sweet Water came from my own experiences of growing up and visiting my grandparents who lived on a lake in Michigan and were five miles from the nearest, small town. And though my Taylor boys have all gone their separate ways after the death of their parents, an inheritance left to them in their father’s will is bringing them all home to be reunited once again. (I feel a TV mini-series in the makings here.)

And as for the process of how I write – I do not plan everything out ahead of time because these Taylor boys end up doing whatever they want and changing it anyway. I admit, I’m having a hard time controlling them. But with 12 brothers and their personal stories in the making, I’ve decided to finally start writing down info to help me keep things straight by the time I get to the last book and also keep me sane.

So please pick up a copy of Doubting Thomas today, and I hope you will continue with the stories of his brothers, Levi and Judas. And keep watching my website, as Seducing Zeb will be released this summer. I hope to have a different brother’s story released every few months.

So, stop by my website where you can get one of the first looks at my new Tarnished Saints  book trailer video and see what these handsome men look like, as well as read excerpts of the books. If you enjoy my novels, be sure to drop me a note and leave a review on Amazon as well. And stop by and hit the Like button on my facebook page to get updates too.
