Interview with author Janice Ross

Tell us a little bit about your book.

Taunted Souls is about is a story about sacrificing love for the sake of doing the right thing. Lucas and Shayna are perfect for each other, but Shayna has hidden her feelings all along because she’s never believed she was deserving off happiness. Lucas, on the other hand, has wore his heart on his sleeves only to be rejected by Shayna. He eventually let go and move on.

And then one day, everything changes.

This is their story of diving into love when nothing else seems to go in your favor.

Have you published before?

Yes, I first published in 2013.

Are you currently working on anything else?

I am currently working on several stories, but my most exciting one is an assassin romance. It is extremely intense, in many ways. As much as the characters are stubborn, their passion oozes for each other.

What is your favorite writing snack?

My favorite writing snack is Cheetos Jumbo Puffs, though sometimes I indulge in sweet & spicy plantain chips.

What gets you in the mood to write?

Music gets me in the mood to write. Just the other day, I got swept away for hours. I was listening to Journey To Atlantis. The lyrics are so beautiful, but might also be perceived as heartbreaking. This put me in a zone to examine relationships and the depths of being in love.

Who is your favorite character and why?

I have too many favorite characters, but I’m selecting one of my old favorites. I love Richelle Mead’s Eugenie Markham from the Dark Swan Series. The character is an unlikely heroine.she flawed, yet completely relatable. Makes tough choices and bad decisions, but you’re completely vested in her life.

Favorite book of all time?

I’m a BIG Paulo Coelho fan. I’ve read most of his work, but my favorite is a deep love story called By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept: A Novel of Forgiveness.

I think breakfast says a lot about a person, what is your perfect breakfast?

My favorite breakfast is Chicken & Waffles (from Metro Diner).

Do you have a favorite period of time that you like to write about or would like to live? 

Although I love historical fiction, my stories mainly take place during the present day.

Please tell us in one sentence why we should read your book!

Lucas and Shayna’s story is an emotional ride with twists and turns that will pull you in.

Wager’s Price Soulkeepers Reborn by G. P. Ching

From the bestselling author of the THE SOULKEEPERS comes a new series about dark magic, redemption and an unusual theater with life or death stakes…

Finn Wager’s luck has run out. Arrested for the one crime he didn’t actually commit, he’s forced to finish his education at an alternative school. The Revelations Institute is an upscale, private reform school with a 100% success rate. Delinquents go in and model citizens come out.

But students who don’t perform to expectations disappear. And although their bodies return model citizens, their minds are hardly their own. Something evil lurks inside Revelations, and if Finn and his new friend Hope can’t find a way to stop it, they’ll risk more than their lives. The repercussions could cost them their souls.

Interview with author G.P. Ching

Try to describe your book in one sentence.

When Finn is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s sentenced to a reform school with an unorthodox and deadly curriculum.

State a random fact about yourself that would surprise your readers.

I’m not sure if this would surprise my readers or not, but I was a horribly difficult child to raise. When I was about six years old, my parents thought it would be fun to give me a gift from Santa for Christmas. Only, it wasn’t from the real Santa. My imposter gift was from the store, wrapped and labeled “From: Santa” by my parents.

The problem was, even at six, I had a vivid imagination. I knew that a gift from Santa would be magical and I had a pretty good idea what it would be like. I pictured peeling the wrapping paper back to reveal a can of enchanted popcorn, sparkling silver white, with instructions of how I could fly if I ate it. Or a bag of stardust that could change anything I sprinkled it on into anything else. I desperately wanted a pet unicorn that year and spent hours imagining how I would use my stardust to transform a squirrel from my back yard into a single horned beast. I planned to keep it in the garage. There would be plenty of room because we could sell the cars and ride the unicorn.

I was prepared, in the event I hadn’t been quite as good all year as I should have been, to be the recipient of a stuffed reindeer that would come alive at midnight and grant me wishes. The reindeer wasn’t what I wanted, but I’d take it in a pinch. Truth be told, I was hoping for the stardust.

Anyway, Christmas morning came and I opened the gift… It was a Barbie, and I was devastated. There was no way the real Santa would get me, the girl who dreamt of magic and unicorns and sparkle dust, a plastic-person statue. Voice cracking, I sobbed, “It’s just a dumb old doll.” And then I chucked that thing across the room.

My parents have never let me live that down. I guess I was supposed to like Barbie. I did not.

 

What’s your current guilty pleasure?

Stranger Things. I watched the entire last season in two days. My eyes were sore.

 

If you couldn’t be a writer, what would you be?

I’m going to interpret this question as, “If you couldn’t make a living as a writer, what would you do for a living?” because the truth is you are a writer long before you can support yourself with it. I love writing, and I’d write books even if I didn’t make a dime.

So what would I do for a living? I think I’d open a restaurant called Pi Cafe. Inside a circular building, I’d build a round kitchen surrounded by round tables. The menu would consist exclusively of pie—pizza pie, potpie, dessert pie, etc. All of the drinks would cost $3.14.

I’d call it Pi Cafe: Well-rounded Cuisine.

Who is your favorite character in your new release?

Although I love all of my characters, there is a special place in my heart for Hope. She’s spent her entire life knowing she’s the last Soulkeeper and that someday she’d have to live up to the name. Although she trains with an angel named Gabriel, she tries her hardest to be a normal human girl, performing with the dance team at her high school, going to parties, and generally avoiding the parts of her role that are more than she’s ready for. So when she’s accused of a crime she didn’t commit and sent to Revelations, knowing that she must solve the mystery of the lost souls, she does so reluctantly.

There’s a part of the book where Hope is undergoing a painful and terrifying trial, and she vocalizes her anger toward God. As a Soulkeeper, she knows first hand that there is a God because He is responsible for her role and the angel who trains her. But for her, that makes her suffering far, far worse. Because knowing there is a God allowing her to suffer seems cruel compared to believing her pain is completely due to chance. So, she’s rather bitter and sullen about her lot in life.

I find her character utterly relatable. I wrote this book right after losing a young family member to a demon of a disease and while my sister endured treatment for AML. Faith is hard in times of trial, no matter what religion you are. Even as an atheist, I think it can be hard to have faith in yourself or others when it seems everything is going wrong. Hope represents that universal struggle in this book.

 

Why did you choose the genre you write in?

Honestly, my genre chose me. From my earliest memories, I’ve been drawn to paranormal fantasy. I read books like The Lion, The Witch, and the wardrobe as a kid, obsessed over Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the Lost Boys as a teen, spent my college years reading books like Bram Stoker’s Dracula and watching Charmed and Buffy the Vampire slayer, and raised my children on the Harry Potter books and later, the Vampire Diaries.

For me, paranormal fantasy represents the ultimate in escapism. The reader isn’t confined by the rules of our world. Death can truly be a doorway, magic can change everything, and love can save the world.

What inspired you to write, you took any ideas from other books, movies etc?

The idea behind Revelations Institute started with an interest in Cirque du Soleil. As an author of fantasy, I peddle wonder in the form of the written word. Cirque du Soleil does it in the form of a theatrical production. The first Cirque I ever saw was O at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, followed by Mystere, Ka, La Nouba, and others. If you’ve seen one of these shows, you know the performers convince you that humans can truly have supernatural abilities. You can’t watch a man fly around a stage, suspended only by one contorted arm gripping a red silk curtain, without wondering how it came to be. What training, what upbringing, what genetic abilities led one to a life of flight.

My research also brought me to the work of Elizabeth Streb whose dancing and performance art absolutely moved me. Elizabeth seemed to me to be a person on the edge of every boundary, pushing norms in herself and others in a way that challenged everything I took for granted about the world. If you’ve never heard of her, Google her right now or watch the PBS special Born to Fly, and if you are lucky enough to be where she has a show, do not miss it. (By the way, I met Streb briefly on the River Walk in San Antonio of all places and was completely tongue-tied. A major talent.)

Anyway, after a full year of researching this type of entertainment, I plotted Wager’s Price with the idea that a reform school built on top of a fallen star could provide an environment where more could be demanded of students than humanly possible. This idea morphed into Wager’s Price.

What book is currently on your nightstand?

I am currently reading Turtles All the Way Down by John Green and Origin by Dan Brown.

How can readers stay in touch?

If what you want to know most as a reader is when the next book will come out, the best thing to do is to join my newsletter list at http://smarturl.it/GPChingVIPlist. I am not the type of author who spams their readers with frequent emails. Usually, I send out about 4-6 per year, mostly to inform readers about new releases  or sales.

If you want to get to know me on a more personal level, ask me a specific question about a book, or perhaps message me about my books, you should join my Facebook group, G.P. Ching’s Fearless Readers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/450457555307350/.

One way you will not reach me is through reviews. I don’t read them. So if you post a question inside a review on Amazon or Goodreads or another venue, I will not see it. There is an “ask the author” section on Goodreads that I do respond to, but not the reviews. Reviews are for readers, not authors.

If you could visit any place in the world or a place created by a book, where would you visit?

Hogwarts. I’m A Harry Potter freak. And yes, I’ve been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and it was amazing.

How many more books can we expect in this series?

There will be two more books in this series. Book 2, Hope’s Promise is about 90% complete and will release in February of 2018. Book 3, Lucifer’s Pride, is about 25% complete, and is tentatively slated for March of 2018.

Interview with Zorica

1.How would you describe your book in one sentence?

The book explains how you create your reality.

2. When did you begin writing?

I had the most extraordinary experience when I was first was learning to write. That pencil in my hand – a feeling unlike any other. I will never forget it. And it is the same now when in the morning I pick up my pen to write in my journal – my entire world changes instantly for the better, the magical.

3. How long have you been writing?

Literally, from the moment I could write. When I very, very young I wanted to keep a journal, but didn’t know how. My thinking was if you wrote about your life, you’d be always writing, so I was puzzled as to how to do it. Of course I figured it out as I got older. I have journals of almost every single day of my life since I was 14.

4. Aside from writing, what do you enjoy doing on your spare time?

What else? Reading, of course! I also enjoy hiking and salsa dancing, and strangely I take pleasure in waxing my car, when I’m in the mood.

She was happy in those perfect moments, for her life at home was most imperfect. The challenging homestead she inhabited was also the favorite subject of local gossip.

But one autumn day she overhears two boys having a conversation. This occasion of accidental audience sets Susan’s life on an unforeseen path. In the seasons to come, her future will be changed by two hospitalizations, two confessions of love, and one betrayal.

Interview with Noel Branham

Q: Describe your book in one sentence. 

A: Loser girl-next-door falls in love with long time best friend A.K.A. town flirt but she is sensible enough to stay away… hopefully.

 

Q: Do you write at a laptop/desktop or do you write freehand? 

A: IPhone. With a toddler running around I don’t always have time to bust out my laptop and wait for it to turn on when I need to write something down. Ideas come to me in short bursts and so I write a little through the day in the beginning. Towards the end of a project I schedule time to sit down and seriously write. 

 

Q: Who is your favorite character? 

A: My favorite characters to write were the little old ladies at the nursing home… who (spoilers) eventually leak about Susan’s crush on her best friend, Calder… to Calder himself. I like them because most people in the world don’t take little old ladies in the nursing home seriously, but Susan in her kind hearted-fashion does. It’s because Susan is kind to them that she and the person she ends up with are together. Kindness counts! 

 

 

Q: Where did you get your inspiration? 

A: I was horribly homesick for Texas. It was the first snow in Missouri and I couldn’t help but feel this unbearable longing for the snowless hill country at home. So I wrote about it and put my heart into it. That way I could take home with me wherever I went… because home is where the heart is. 

 

Q: Do you have an all-time favorite book?

A: Pride and Prejudice of course! The ultimate smart-but-loser-girl falls in love with the handsome-rich-guy.  It really can’t get any better than this Jane Austen classic. 

 

Q: Do you prefer Twitter or Facebook?

A: Instagram! I know, I know. Instagram isn’t a platform that conforms to the word heavy sentence-focused worlds of Twitter and Facebook. But words are ultimately what we use to paint a picture for others… and since pictures are worth a thousand of them you can find me on Instagram. 🙂

 

 Q: Vampires or werewolves?

A: Vampires. Vampires are really just misunderstood, I think we need to stop the stereotypes and start seeing them as regular people. Not ALL vampires are out to kill you. They bleed red. Lead may be their weakness, but the Greeks all died of lead poisoning as well. Garlic is repulsive to a vast number of the population. I hope you take away from this little rant that Vampires are people too and need to be treated as such (…and not that the ancient Greeks were all vampires.) 😉

 

Q: What projects are you working on right now?

A: I have about five manuscripts in the works. Two of them can be seen as associated with The Simple Soul of Susan, but definitely can stand on their own. In them we explore the relationship of Calder’s parents and eventually his son’s relationships.

I. Am. Elizabeth by Kathi Haacke Morehead


I. Am. Elizabeth by Kathi Haacke Morehead

I. Am. Elizabeth is a story of medieval intrigue based on the life of Elizabeth Plantagenet. Set both contemporaneously and in the 16th century, the reader will be invited to weigh for themselves the truth of Elizabeth’s life, including the disappearance of Elizabeth’s brothers, the Lost Princes in the Tower, the ascension of her uncle, Richard III, to the throne of England, and her marriage to Henry Tudor. Elizabeth Plantagenet was a daughter, niece, sister, wife, and mother to five Kings of England, and grandmother of the first and second Queens Regnant: Mary I and Elizabeth I. You may have met The White Princess, but prepare for your introduction to the real Elizabeth of York.

Description:
Elizabeth of York died in 1503. Annie Campbell lives today. Can they reach through time to heal one another’s soul, or will their secrets be impossible to overcome?

…. Why can’t I sleep? It is not as though tonight is any different from last night, or the night before, or even the night before that. It’s hot, and not a breath of air moves through the window. I feel like I will go mad from this anxiety, this fear. But of what? It’s so very dark tonight. No moon, no light from the windows. Just dark… Damn you, darkness. You’ve not been kind the past few nights. What horror do you hold for me tonight?

e-Murderer copyOn this anything but typical Monday morning Jenna Scali, who works part-time for a shrink, opens an email that depicts the brutal death of a young girl. On that same day the police uncover a dead coed two blocks from Jenna’s house. The e-murderer’s description creepily echos the death described in the newspapers.

When Jenna receives other emails, she takes what she knows to the police and thus begins her journey in the path of the e-murderer. Her curious nature impels her from e-messages to dead coeds to a ring of prostitutes. With the help of her quirky friends, Jenna learns that she’s more than a conduit for the killer. She’s his target. New secrets unfold, and finally her love life takes a tumble when the true killer emerges.

THE E-MURDERER is a race to find a psychotic killer before he kills again.

This new mystery series with a young female sleuth promises to keep you glued to your seat until the last page.

A Chilling Absence by Shelly Maynard

A Chilling Absence Book Tour Header
Front CoverLily Grimes had it all. She was head cheerleader, the girlfriend of the All-American High School Quarterback, had been accepted to a prestige college near her hometown and the best family and friends a young woman could ask for. Just before Christmas 2004, Dr. Jethro “Jet” Manning, the doctor-in-training for the quaint little town, nearly runs over Lily, who is found unresponsive and icy cold in the middle of a backroad.

Fast forward to 2015 – Lily Grimes finally wakes up and has to face the reality of being in a coma for the past 11 years. Her life has changed but just as she feels like she is getting into the groove of things, Lily discovers secrets have been kept, lies have been told and everyone whom she considered a ‘friend’, may not be out for her best interest. Lily feels like something is missing – a piece of herself. Is it simply because she was in a coma for so long or is there literally a piece missing?

As she sets out on a mission to find the answer, Lily discovers that she’s being stalked and someone is trying to kill her. Who can she trust and will she ever find the secret to those eleven missing years?

About the Author

13422275_10208579075066148_8218583055312458997_o

July 15, 1984. Shelly Oakley (now Maynard) was born and lived in tiny Ashmore, Illinois until 1998 when her parents relocated to Manchester, Tennessee. Starting a new high school and making new friends was hard enough but it was that point in her life where it came time to make life-changing decisions in regards to college, careers, etc. Shelly had spent so much time following in others’ footsteps that she never had a plan for her career. The only dream she’d ever had was to become an author but that was laughed off by family and friends. By 2002, Shelly was in college and switched her major from nursing to teaching and finally business. One year in and she discovered that she was pregnant with her first son. He joined the world in 2004 and was followed by a brother in 2006. During the second pregnancy, Shelly fought demons of a bad marriage and started trying to rebuild her life. She met her (now) husband in the Fall of 2006 and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Her three guys are her entire heart, soul, mind and spirit! After searching for several years, Shelly decided that it was time to find a place to settle in her career. She started working for a local, family-owned steel fabrication company in 2014 and was surprised when she found more than a job – she gained an extended family and friends who provided a tremendous amount of support. Between the support of her husband, children, family and friends, Shelly started writing again. Past demons haunted her but she wanted to set an example for her children and follow her dream through to the end to prove that hard work, persistence and dedication pays off! Living in Lynchburg, Tennessee, Shelly Maynard is your typical mom – she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and for nine of the twelve months per year, you’ll find her at a ball field watching her children. She enjoys front-porch-sittin’ with a glass of sweet tea and the occasional margarita. She loves her morning coffee, a good book and writing for her blog. It’s the simple, “little” things in life that make life grand! She also blogs at www.lynchburgtnmama.com
