Today’s Tease…Serenity Valle

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with Today’s Tease Serenity Valle

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  Serenity Valle

Title of the book you are promoting:  The Fantastical Life of Serenity: Epilogue

Link to purchase your Book:  Coming soon to Kindle and paperback! Other books are here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Serenity%20Valle

Genre:  Contemporary Romance (this book)

Welcome  SV…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

SV: That’s hilarious! I wanted (ok, still want) to be a private investigator! I also wanted to be an actress and model (both of which I have done/am doing).

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

SV: I was the same way; I started writing as a child. My parents encouraged me and bought me tons of spiral notebooks for my stories. My mom probably still has some of them saved in the basement.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

SV: I am an Indie author!

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

SV: I would really have to think about it. Having someone else pushing and marketing my books would be great, however, I love having complete control of my books as an Indie, so it would be a long thought process if I were approached.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!  Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

SV: I think I would invite my birth parents. I would not discuss why they gave me up for adoption (I already know why, and I had a great adoptive family so I can thank them for that). I would be more interested in everything leading up to that, rather than the adoption itself.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors.   Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

SV: I agree there is a lot of sex and violence. I can’t stand how almost every commercial today uses sex or sexual innuendo to sell their product. There is a time and place for both sex and violence but being saturated with it is wholly unnecessary. During the writing process of my book, I felt a bit conflicted here and there, as it is a romance and there is sex in it. My husband pointed out that my scenes were healthy and romantic, there was no violence and the sex is not a *major* factor in the story, so I felt better.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

SV: I would want everyone to have enough food and healthcare.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

SV: I like a cover that draws the eye, but I think the content speaks louder than the cover.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

SV: I have been writing since I was seven years old, so I guess I could say that I’ve always wanted to write.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?

SV: I love characters and scenery. I can’t finish a book if I can’t “see” it.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

SV: I will usually get an a-ha moment and run to my computer to start writing. That happened with three of my WIPs! I may not have the whole story, but I’ll get a good portion of ideas for it and have to type them up before I forget them!

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

SV: Kill you. Yes, I am working on a paranormal mystery series. I am on the first book of it, which takes place at a California university and revolves around a young Gypsy college student, her best friend/roommate, and their spirit friend. They work together to help solve a mystery that occurs on campus. I’m hoping to release the first book of the series in early to mid 2014.

LH: I’m working on #6…5 are published and the last is due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?

SV: The Fantastical Life of Serenity: Epilogue will be my 2nd published book. I am currently working on the paranormal mystery (book one), a fantasy-comedy with my husband and have the beginnings of several other books.

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

SV: I write because I love being creative, having people buy my books doesn’t hurt though!

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

SV: So far, it is my Mom not being able to read my upcoming book! She doesn’t want to read the sex lol. I told her to get a paperback and I would sharpie out the “good parts”. She laughed and said that might work!

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

SV: Oh yes, I have! Luckily, I have more than one WIP so if I hit a block, I go to another WIP and work on it until the block is gone for my main one.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

SV: Always network, get to know other authors! Indie authors especially seem to always be willing to help with advice for someone new to writing/publishing.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

SV: Ha ha, only one thing? Ok, um…I would figure out a way to have a bigger chest!

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

SV: I would go back to 2008 and tell my husband to take me to Korea with him (we weren’t married or even dating at the time).

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

SV: I would probably go running down my street (after I told my family), shouting about it. I am not shy and would be telling everyone. I’d probably want to play myself too, lol.

Thanks for that interesting and informative interview SV…Now… for the fun stuff!

Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 Both!

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

LH: If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

SV: Honestly, I’d take my husband to India and spend the week in temples, shopping and…other things. 😉

Today’s Tease…Tarah Scott

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with Today’s Tease Tarah Scott

Genre:  Historical romance

Welcome TS…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

TS: First, Leanna, thank you for having me! It’s so nice to be here at https://authorteasereadings.wordpress.com. What did I want to be as a little girl? I wanted to be an archaeologist. Who knew I’d be digging for stories instead of bones?

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

TS: I’m a huge fan of the classics, Bronte, Austen, Dickens, and so on. Little did I know the effect all that reading would have on me. A modern author who influenced me greatly was Amanda Quick. I fell in love with her historical romances, but was certain I couldn’t even consider writing like her. I’m still working on it.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

TS: I am published both Indie and traditionally.

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

TS: There are advantages on both sides of the fence. As an Indie author, I have complete control. That is a double-edged sword! There is something to be said for handing a book off to a publisher who gets the book publish-worthy. That, however, requires knowing that publisher will handle the book the way I would like.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies! Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

TS: That’s a toughie. I guess I would invite Mark Twain and not discuss politics. Heh heh. I would definitely discuss books!

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

TS: The only thing that is ‘everything’ is a really well written book. However, there’s no doubt that a good cover can catch the eye of readers who may not know you. I’ve gotten lots of attention as a result of certain covers. If the story follows up, I’m ok. If not, the cover won’t get that reader to say the book was good.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

TS: As a kid I never considered the possibility I might be a writer—though my seventh grade English teacher took me aside and told me I should be a writer. I thought she was just being nice. I was always involved in ‘writerly’ things, such as, instead of being in the school play, I helped write it. You would think I would have realized I was headed in that direction, but I’m known for being hard-headed. I wrote music for many years, but it wasn’t until my thirties than I began considering the possibility of writing fiction. It took about six years for me to finally give into the incessant—and not too gentle—nudging in my brain before I wrote that first scene.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

TS: I’m similar. Usually, I see an opening scene, or at least a scene that is the heart of the inspiration. If that scene bugs me long enough, I eventually write it.

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

TS: I’m currently working on two books, a Scottish Medieval entitled Death Comes for a Knight, and a
Victorian Scottish historical entitled To Tame a Highland Earl.

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

TS: Sure, I’ve experienced writer’s block. The only cure is to keep writing—while you’re drinking. Works every time.

You are too funny TS…Now… for the fun stuff!

Favorite Beverage? Coffee!

Exercise or Bubble Bath? ROFL. Exercise, then bubble bath.

Favorite Color? Purple

Take out or Dine in? Take out

Camping or Hotel? Hotel—definitely!

Sports or Chocolate? Hmm, if it’s basketball, then sports.

Dogs or Cats? OMG, both. Sorry.

Favorite Food? Oh, man, that’s tough. I love Chinese food.

Favorite Song? Too many to choose from.

Favorite Movie? It’s a Wonderful Life. I adore that movie.

Favorite Car? My Camry. Boring, but oh so reliable.

Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 Yeah, that’s a both. Though sex is first.

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

LH: If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

TS: ROFL. This is no essay. It’s short and sweet. I would go to the Florida Keyes with Gerard Butler and wouldn’t come up for air until we landed back in NY. Yes, that’s right, not until we landed back in NY. No way I’m getting on a plane with Gerard Butler and not joining the mile high club.

Today’s Tease…S. Cu’Anam Policar

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with Today’s Tease S. Cu’Anam Policar

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  S. Cu’Anam Policar

Title of the book you are promoting:  Rise of Xosha

 Link to purchase your Book:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F2IJ3DK/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=211189&creative=373489&creativeASIN=B00F2IJ3DK&link_code=as3&tag=cusebgiaw-20

Genre:  Fantasy/Romance

Welcome  SC…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

SC: A writer lol. I’ve always wanted to write. Books just amazed me and I wanted to be just like my favorite authors when I was a kid. I wanted to be able to grip people and take them to magical places as young as seven.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

SC: It wasn’t so much a particular person. It was the stories themselves that gripped me and made me think “I wonder if my stories can to other people what this does to me”.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

SC: I’m published through Satalyte Publishing which an Indie Publishing House run authors for authors. It’s an ongoing joke that I’m the red-headed step child of the house since I was the only American author published by them for awhile lol I think there may be another one or two now though lol

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

SC: I went the way with a publisher simply because I was petrified I would do something wrong if I tried to do it myself. I know nothing about formatting and all that stuff that goes with self-publishing. I write, that’s my job it’s what I do lol. Occasionally, I do some paid editing for the house as well when our editor gets swamped. Other than that, I write it’s as far my knowledge goes lol.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!  Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

SC: R.A. Salvatore. Since I first read his book Homeland, I’ve wanted nothing more than to climb inside his head and see what makes him tick lol. His books are not only amazing they are very, very popular. The one subject I wouldn’t discuss with him would probably be his books. I’m a little behind on his Legend of Drizzt series and definitely wouldn’t any spoilers lol

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors.  Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

SC: Of course there is too much of both, but it can’t be blamed on Hollywood or authors simply because both venues only feed what the masses crave. Parents blame video games, tv, movies, books for the violence and bad habits their children learn, but most of the time it’s the parents that introduce the child to the subject matter in the first place. I could really go on and on about this topic but it really boils down to there is too much of it, but unless parents start teaching their children not to emulate the things they see, hear, read, it will never stop or lessen it’ll only get worse.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

SC: The poverty. I don’t think any child or even adult should have to go hungry, ever. The poverty levels around the world are astronomical and even the US has a high poverty rate that no one sees because we’re supposed to be a power country so it’s hidden by our government and our media, but really we aren’t as well off as we want everyone else to think. So, instead of helping our own starving children, adults, and families, all the money that could go to them go to other impoverished countries instead. I wish there a way to change that so that money could go to something else since then there wouldn’t be any poverty at all.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

SC: I’m a total cover whore >.< I admit it. I will more than likely bypass a book with a bad cover. I never read other people’s reviews of a book since I don’t want someone else’s opinion to sway my decision. I MAY read a blurb, but  the cover has to catch my eye first.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

SC: For as long as I can remember I’ve been writing. I was 5 or 6 when I wrote my very first poem which was about this little plastic toy bee that I loved to play with LOL.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?

SC: Storyline. I don’t care if there’s sex of any form, death, violence, whatever, the overall story line has to hold my attention. I rarely see myself in anything I read, and I keep my own characters are different from me as possible. When it comes to other books it’s the same thing, I don’t want to read about my attributes I want to be swept into the story and carried off to faraway lands.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

SC: With the Legend of Xosha series.. It was dreams. They started when I was seven and never let go lol. So I started a dream journal and wrote down everything I remembered and Xosha was born.

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

SC: After a discussion with my publisher, we decided that since I went against the grain and published a prequel before even publishing the first book, that the prequel should be three prequels, a trilogy to introduce the series. Rise of Xosha is actually the second in chronological order in the trilogy. I’m working on the first book now, The Diamond Isles which starts with Rose’s birth and ends with them leaving the Isles to find Xosha which is where Rise begins. That’s due out in January but I’m hoping to get it done before then.

LH: I’m working on #6…5 are published and the last is due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?

SC: I’ve written 1 book, Rise of Xosha. I’m 1/3 finished with The Diamond Isles, and have a few chapters of The Dawning of the Three (The first book in the main series), and I’ve been collaborating with Stephen Ormsby on Little Girl Lost which is the first book to an entirely different series. I have three shorts in anthologies that are out as well. My short “A Touch of Chaos” is in Other Voices: An Urban Fantasy Anthology, “The Tales of Brown Mist: The Great Wizard Rescue” is in Miraculous: Tales of the Unknown, and “The Battle for Summer” is in No Sleeves, Short Dresses: A Summer Anthology. There’s a few more anthologies releasing soon that I’m in as well including one being put out by Anchor Group Publishing, one from Nevermore Press, and one that CM Wright is organizing. I like to keep myself busy lol!

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

SC: Absolutely not. I pity the authors that write simply for the fame and fortune. I’m not egotistical enough to think my book will ever make Amazon’s top 100, or be a best seller anywhere, or have a movie, or any of that. I write because the story needs to be told which means someone out there needs to read it. I write for the one person that needs what my story offers the most. And to shut the characters up >.>

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

SC: They lie!!!! Friends and Family are the worst critics EVER!!! Half the time they don’t bother to read the book but either love it or hate it lol! Give me someone that doesn’t know me any day over a friend or family lol

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

SC: Writer’s Block is soooo common x.x I simply stop writing what I’m working on and write something else. It’s usually how my short stories are born. I’ll hit a block in my WiP and just write random things until my brain finds a way around the WiP’s block.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

SC: Don’t think of the money, the fame, or the accolades. Think of the story and the lonely soul out there that needs your story to keep them going. Don’t pay attention to mean reviews, don’t even hold too much to the 4 and 5 star ones. Look for the good 1 2 and 3 star reviews that will teach you how to make your work even better. And above all else, don’t give up on your dream regardless of what the trolls will say or do to try to break you.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

SC: Nothing. I wouldn’t be me without the experiences I’ve gone through. I wouldn’t be where I am now or have the life I have now. So even with all the horrible things I’ve been through, and the few good things, I wouldn’t change any of it.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

SC: I would tell the Pagans not to hide. I would tell them to fight back and not run from the Burning Times. If my ancestors had fought back, perhaps now in this day and age, we wouldn’t still have people claiming how evil we are when our entire lifestyle is the exact opposite of evil.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

SC: I wouldn’t even know. Whoever would be on the phone would probably bust an eardrum though when I squealed ROFL! I’d probably tell my husband and kids first… Then I’d tell all my friends, family, and fans on facebook lol

Thank for that fun and frank interview SC…Now… for the fun stuff!

Favorite Beverage? Pepsi

Exercise or Bubble Bath? Bubble Bath

Favorite Color? Purple

Take out or Dine in? Take Out (People make me nervous)

Camping or Hotel? Hotel.. have you ever been camping?! The ground was not meant to be a bed x.x

Sports or Chocolate? Sports

Dogs or Cats? Wolves? >.>

Favorite Food? The kind you eat LOL I don’t have a favorite

Favorite Song? Tricky Question!!!! I like multiple genres of music I don’t have a favorite song

Favorite Movie? I don’t have a favorite x.x

Favorite Car? Spider e.e

Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 I plead the fifth >.>

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

LH: If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

SC: It may sound silly or lame, but If I could go anywhere for week, I’d go to something like UTopYA since I can’t afford to go there or to any other author conventions. I would take my hubby since he wants to go too. I’d love to meet all my author friends. So while my answer is not as smexy as you were probably going for, it’s a dream of mine that I hope someday I can make a reality >^.^<

Today’s Tease…Kristy Brown

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with Today’s Tease Kristy Brown

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  Kristy Brown, K.R.Brown

Title of the book you are promoting:  Twisted Fate

 Link to purchase your Book:  http://www.amazon.com/Twisted-Fate-Series-Volume/dp/1491237783/ref=tmm_pap_title_0

Genre:  Paranormal Romance

Welcome  KB…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

KB: As a child I wanted to be a lawyer, but that changed when I started school.  I then wanted to be a writer.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?

KB: I have had so many influences through the years.  The ones that really made me decide to go toward Paranormal Romance were Cheyenne McCray, Christina Dodd.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

KB: I am a Indie author at the moment, but my hope is to be “discovered”.

LH: As an Indie Author, I was hesitant about being with a publishing company. If you are an Indie author, would you like to be published by a traditional publisher and if so, why or why not?

KB: I would and dream to be with a traditional publisher, the reasons are because they can give you outlets that you can’t get with being Indie. Such as giving you help to promote your books.  They can get your book into book stores, when you are Indie it isn’t that easy.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!  Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

KB: So many choices for this one.  I think I would have to go with Joe Manganiello.  Like you said I wouldn’t be talking about movies.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors.  Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

KB: I believe that sex and violence are ingrained with our world. It is becoming so common place that you can see a naked woman on normal TV.  It worries me because I have children, I don’t want them to see the way the world is turning to sex and violence all the time.  The image on the TV is what our children grow up to be.  I don’t want either of my children to feel they have to be stick thin.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

KB: Poverty, I would want to find a way to help people live better lives.  Having no money to live on makes things so much harder.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

KB: I think that a great book cover can bring in many readers, but with that said I also believe that you have to have a great story as well.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

KB: I started when I was in middle school around the age of 10.  Have always loved to write.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?

KB: Being able to see the characters in my mind.  When they decide to make it a movie I can say I can see that person playing that character.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?

KB: I am pretty much the same way.  I don’t do an outline or anything.  I do keep track of my characters though hahaha

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

KB: Yes I am, I am writing the 3rd book to my twisted fate series.  Then in November I do NaNoWriMo.

LH: I’m working on #6…5 are published and the other one is due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?

KB: I have written 5 only 1 is published at this moment.

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

KB: A little of both, I love that I can write something that people will love to read.  At the same time I like money.

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

KB: None, they are all very supportive of what I am doing. 🙂

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

KB: Not really block, it is more I am not too sure how the movie in my head will go. So I have to let it roll in my mind to see what way I want.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

KB: Don’t let reviews keep you from being who you are.  No matter what you write be true to your story.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

KB: Hmm this is a hard one.  If I could go back I think I would work out more.  Tell myself to be better at the things I know I can do.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

KB: Another hard one, I think I would go back and find the person who invented cigarettes and tell him not to. Tell him that by just that one invention he was pretty much the reason for thousands of deaths.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

KB: First I would blush to the roots of my hair.  Second I would be jumping up and down screaming about how happy I was.  It is a dream to have a book made into a show but it isn’t a deal breaker in my life.  I would tell my husband J

LH: If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

KB: This one is easy for me, I would go to Ireland.  I have a calling to go overseas and see the amazing things there. I would bring my husband, who I have been with for almost fifteen years.  The journey would be a great vacation.  We would hop from place to place seeing the standing stones, and the fields of green.

I love to take photos so I would need to have a hard drive for use this vacation.  After Ireland we would go to Scotland.  I would find the people that I have meet online and connect with them.  To see the world in this way would be a dream come true.  We would then go to Cairo to see the pyramids. Connect with the past in a way I can’t here in the US.

Today’s Tease…Rebekah L. Pierce

Welcome! Pull up a seat and enjoy a chat with Today’s Tease Rebekah L. Pierce

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  Rebekah L. Pierce

Title of the book you are promoting:  Murder on Second Street: The Jackson Ward Murders

 Link to purchase your Book:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E3XWN82 (ebook); CreateSpace – https://www.createspace.com/4419407 (hard copy)

 Genre:  Historical Fiction, Suspense, Mystery, Romance

Welcome  RLP:..I, LH have some questions for you ;

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

RLP: A writer. I have always wanted to be a writer. I used to get into so much trouble as a kid for always having my nose in a book. I’d get lost in the world of the stories I read. I loved to read, and I so wanted to put to paper the stories that came to mind when I’d read those lovely books. It has also saved my life literally and metaphorically. When I was 12, my father left the family and I went through a very dark period. I couldn’t express how I was feeling except on paper. So, journaling kept me going. And now, I am a writer. I am also an English teacher, teaching others how to write. It’s my purpose.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career?     

RLP: Okay, this is a loaded question for an English! I’ll try to be brief. I am a huge fan of and grew up reading Agatha Christie, Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys, Harlequin Romances and Louie Lamar westerns. I am deeply influenced in terms of narration and POV by Alexander McCall Smith’s “No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” series. With regards to humor and gum shoe detective stories, I absolutely love the style of Janet Evanovich. And for classic mystery/detective, it has to be Walter Mosley’s “Easy Rawlins” series. Of course, for the classics, the period I most identify with and generally love to teach/read, it’s the modernist period in America. Some of those authors are Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, James Weldon Johnson, John Steinbeck, etc. The use of imagery and language is powerful as well as the themes of their words: social justice, the loss of faith, redemption, and more. The mother-daughter duo of Mary Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft have had a huge impact on my work and my advocacy for women and children and for the portrayal of the frailty of humanity. For theatre, William Shakespeare, of course, Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin in the Sun), Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman and The Crucible) and Aristophanes (Lysistrata).

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

RLP: I am an indie published author with aspirations of becoming a “traditional” published author. But if that does not happen, life is still good. There’s always a way to make your dreams come true.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies!      Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

RLP: Langston Hughes and I would discuss EVERYTHING with him except food. I want to hear from him personally his philosophy on culture, jazz, the responsibility of literature and art to the community and what it was like to travel the world on a boat. I want to know what and who truly inspired him to pick up the pen. I think that would be an awesome conversation.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors. Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it? Ever feel conflicted and if so, why?

RLP: Yes, I do, and yes, I am. As a teacher and parent, I am very concerned about what is being marketed as “family TV” when it is darn near close to pornography. I know our children need to learn about sex, but at the age of 5? I don’t think so. But because sex is viewed and portrayed as easy and no big deal, we now find ourselves having children having children. So, we must teach sex education early. My son’s school sent the letter of agreement home in the 4th grade. I dang near passed out! But it’s necessary, and as long as my husband and I can confirm what he has learned and answer additional questions within reason and age appropriate, I am fine with it. But, lord!

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

RLP: I’d make racism disappear in a flash. Racism is a learned behavior, not an innate behavior. It’s a socially constructed ideology designed to keep people in a box and confined. It is so crippling to love. And that is all that matters, truly, in this world: love. There would be no hate and ignorance if racism were eradicated because then there’d be no fear. Racism was created out of fear and greed. I’d love to see it go away; then, imagine what a world we’d have!!

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online? 

RLP: I have to disagree with you here. Visual rhetoric is everything. People purchase based on what their eyes are attracted to. I think a good, clear, specific book cover that relates to the storyline is IMPERATIVE to book sales even online. For me, if the book cover looks generic or poorly presented, I won’t take a second glance at it or read the synopsis. It shows a lack of respect and appreciation for the reader. So, yes, you still must have a beautifully, cleanly designed book cover, and preferably designed by a professional – even if that is the writer themselves. Editing and book covers are two keys to success for a writer in my humble opinion. If you want to be taken seriously,

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?

RLP:  Yes, I have always wanted to write. As I said before, my ferocious love of reading moved me to put pen to paper. I started writing stories at a very young age – 5, I believe. But it wasn’t until the 8th grade when I wrote and submitted my story to a book fair for middle schoolers that I knew for sure writing was my purpose.

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?

RLP:  What interests me the most about story is the portrayal of humanity at its darkest, most loving or funny. I look for authenticity and an obvious pleasure in storytelling on the part of the writer. I love imagery and colorful, full language that paints a picture in my mind and moves me to action.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories?            

RLP: I firmly believe in the power of the muse. My stories are given to me by my muse. There are stories that must be told and artists/writers must be open to telling them. I have to tell the story, no matter how ugly or painful it may be. For example, in both of my novel series, Murder on Second Street and Sex, Lies & Shoeboxes, the protagonists are troubled individuals. Both suffer from PTSD as a result of horrific things done to them or experienced in their past such as abuse, murder, etc. So, writing about the frailties of humanity and demonstrating strength of dignity even in the moment of despair – that hope is always there – motivates me. I do the same for my plays. I don’t do happy endings because life is not over for these characters or for us. We do not know the ending yet. But I also do that because it’s probably who I am as a teacher. I am always s teaching, and so I want to readers to walk away affected by what they have read/seen to the point where they begin to evaluate their own lives in relation to what has been witnessed, and hopefully, come out the wiser and more connected for it.

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?                                                                             

RLP: Yes, I am working on the following: 1) a second book in the Sy Sanford series (Murder on Second Street) and the re-release of Sex, Lies & Shoeboxes, which was originally a novella, but I have since added book 1 & 2 together to create a novel in two parts. Super excited about that release coming in the winter of 2013. I have also released a collection of 6 of my short plays called, On the Cusp of Humanity, so if you love plays, then this book is also a great purchase. Several of the plays have been performed on Off Broadway and are award-winning pieces. So, I hope to produce more of those plays for the stage as well as my full length plays.

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

RLP: I write because that is what I was created to do. I love what I do, and when you love what you do and understand your divine purpose, then money will come from that love. That’s how the universe works. It gives in response to love. I know, I’m on a whole other level. J

LH: Some of my family members had a bit of a problem with me writing my first book “A Beautiful Liar” because the character Maggie West is basically me…to a point 😉 They had a problem with the genre and me “putting it all out there” so to speak so I took a pen name. They eventually came around as I have never cared who knows who I am what I’ve done or what they think of me. I’ve never wanted to be famous, just infamous! What has been your biggest problem when it comes to family or friends when writing?

RLP: Well, not everyone is going to understand your vision in a work. I learned that a long time ago. What’s important is that you stay true to the story you were given to tell. My mother gave me the greatest gift when she said to me after I left her read one of my erotica stories and a play about transgendered males, “I never told you what you couldn’t write.” This is HUGE for me because we grew up strict Pentecostal. My mother was the First Lady of the church. What I write is not what many church folk want to hear, let alone read because it ain’t “Christian-like.” But I write what is given to me by the universe – I call him God. We aren’t supposed to preach only inside of the church walls and only church stuff. We are to go out into the world and minister. That is what I do in my work: I tell the stories of people on the outside…without judgment.

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

RLP: No, not really. And I say this because I teach my students to practice free-writing. That is, just write on the page what comes to mind, even if it’s, “I have no idea what to write.” That opens up creative energy. Writing, or rather storytelling, is an exercise – a voluntary act. Whether we want to believe it or not, we are participating in the act of writing every day. But when it comes to creative writing, you just need to understand that it is voluntary; you do not have to open up to the creative energies of the universe. But if you want to be used by this energy to share tell your story, then you will relax, breathe and let the energy – the muse – deliver to you what it wants for you to have. You are voluntarily opening up to it. So, there is no “writer’s block” if you are open to what the energy wants, not necessarily what you want.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

RLP: My advice to aspiring authors is to: 1) Learn your craft. Writing is a skill that needs honing and protecting. 2) Hire an editor for your team. Yes, you need a team to help you produce credible, quality work. That team could include: beta readers, editor/copywriter, PR/Marketing, book cover designer, etc. 3) Create a solid, clearly defined platform. Who are you? What do you stand for? 4) Have a strong support network. I call them the Crying Angel Network. These are the folks who keep it real with you and keep you uplifted in prayer not because they’ll get anything out of it, but because they believe in a higher power which guides our lives and purposes us for greatness. Finally, never give up, and be realistic. When that rejection letter comes in, and it will, don’t let it knock you down. Read it, take from it that which is true and go back to the work and make it better. Keep trying, keep writing, keep revising! Remember why you write: because it’s like breathing for you.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

RLP:  Nothing! Everything is as it should be. I am where I am supposed to be at this moment in time. The past helped to shape this moment. To wish to change something about my life is to regret, and I have learned to let that kind of thinking go because it holds one hostage to what was, what could have been, etc. I live in the present moment – the NOW. It’s a gift, and I want that gift.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

RLP: If I could have a conversation with someone from the past, it would be my ancestors. I would tell them “thank you” for holding on to what could be, what was promised to them. It is through their faith and self-sacrifice that I am here – that we are here. And I think it’s imperative to our present and our future that we honor our past: that we give thanks.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

RLP: Well, I already have two screenplays sitting on the desk of a buyer in Los Angeles. When I first got the call, I nearly passed out. It is what an artist longs to hear, but it can’t stop me from creating more work. It’s nice that they want to make my stories into film or made for TV, but I ain’t gonna hold my breath and not move on. Things take time, and we must not live only for that moment. So, yeah, I am super excited, but I’ve got to keep working. As for who I told first, my momma, of course! I know, I am a total momma’s girl! J

Thank you for that fun and informative interview RLP…Now… for the fun stuff!

RLP: If I could go anywhere for one week, it would the island of Oahu with Hugh Jackman – lord have mercy, Jesus! We walk on the beach holding hands, consume fruity drinks, watch the sun set and rise, eat tons of food and laugh our behinds off. And it wouldn’t hurt for him to have his shirt off the entire week. Yes!!!

Your Name or Pen Name you use:  Kat Flannery

Title of the book you are promoting:  LAKOTA HONOR

 Link to purchase your Book:  http://www.amazon.com/Lakota-Honor-ebook/dp/B00D0S530G

Genre:  Historical, paranormal, western, suspense, romance

Welcome  KF…I, LH have some questions for you 😉

LH: I wanted to be a ballerina, race car driver and a private detective when I was little. What did you want to be when you grew up?

KF: I always thought I’d be a news anchor. I could picture myself sitting behind the desk with the blue screen behind me and telling the locals the news.

LH: I didn’t really have a literary influence, I just decided one day to start writing. Who influenced you in your writing career? 

KF: Me either. Writing for me was a way to express myself when I was younger. I loved to write poems, lyrics (even though I can’t sing) and short stories. But I knew then that I wanted to write books. I wanted to touch people through words and stories.

LH: I self published all of my books and was then “discovered” by a publisher. Are you an Indie or published author?

KF: I’m traditionally published. I signed a contract with Imajin Books in June of 2011 for my first novel CHASING CLOVERS.

LH: This is easy for me…I’d invite Johnny Depp and I would not discuss movies! Who would you invite to dinner, living or dead, and what one topic would you NOT discuss with them?

KF: Oh, I love Johnny Depp too! But if I was granted this one wish I’d invite Jane Austen, or Leonardo D’ Vinci. I’d like a first account of what their lives were like. I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.

LH: I personally think that there is way too much sex and violence everywhere in society these days and it’s everywhere but that Hollywood is one of the biggest contributors. Do you think that society as a whole is subjected to too much sex and violence and are you concerned about it?

KF: I agree with you, but I also think that we allow these things to influence us even when we know right from wrong.

LH: I’m a huge softy and by no means a beauty queen… lol but, I truly would want world peace in the blink of an eye if I could make it happen…If you could change one thing in the world, in the blink of an eye, what would it be?

KF: World Peace a million times over.

LH: With the traditional bookstore becoming obsolete and everyone turning to buying books online, I don’t buy the hype that “the cover is everything”. How important do you think book covers are now that almost all shopping is done online?

KF: I still think the cover plays a key role in selling books. Whether online or on a book shelf you’re first impression of the book is its cover.

LH: I can remember wanting to write as a kid. I got a really late start! Have you always wanted to write and when did you start?                            

KF: Yes, I started telling stories when I was five and I haven’t stopped since. J

LH: I love to see if I can see myself in a character. What interests you most about a story?                                                           

KF: The characters. I like three dimensional characters that have real emotions and problems.

LH: For me, I just get hit with this whole movie in my head and start writing. How do you come up with your stories? 

KF: I get it spurts over a week or two. Once I have the plot and characters I write.

LH: I can’t tell you or I’d have to…lol Are you working on anything now?

KF: No, I’m taking a break until mid Sept. I just finished releasing LAKOTA HONOR and am getting ready to release HAZARDOUS UNIONS with author Alison Bruce due out Sept 7th 2013. It is about twin sisters separated by the civil war. Alison writes one sisters story and I the other.                     LH: I’m working on #6…5 are published and the other 3 are due out this year… How many books have you written? How many have been published?

KF: I’ve written three books, and all have been published with Imajin Books.

LH: I write for fun I don’t even dream of riches…Do you write for fun or money?

KF: Adrian Meade says it best, ‘I write because I have to’ Some days it’s fun and others not so much, but writing for me is like breathing…it’s a part of who I am.

LH: I have never experienced writers block…I have experienced writers “don’t want to”… Have you ever experienced writers block and if so, how did you overcome it?

KF: On occasion. When I cannot write I research. Since I write historical, research is key, and I always have way more than I need, but reading about the past usually gets my muse going and I can write again.

LH: I get asked all the time “Do you have any advice for new writers?”… Do you?

KF: Never give up and learn to take criticism. If you believe in yourself others will too.

LH: I would not change one thing in my life as I would not be me if I did… If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?

KF: Absolutely nothing. I’ve had my fair of rejections while looking for a publisher with my first book, but I wouldn’t change it. I learned from each letter I received. I love that it took me years to get here, and I will always stay humble because of it.

LH: If I could go back in time and tell someone something, I’d go back and tell the founding fathers they were doing a few things wrong…If you could go back in time and tell someone something, who would you tell and what would you tell them?

KF: I’d go back and tell Anne Boleyn not to marry King Henry the Eighth.

LH: I would freak out if someone contacted me and said they wanted to make one of my books or my series of book into a movie as I am really very shy in person and I’d probably go into hiding. I don’t think I could handle it. How would you handle it? Who would be the first person you told?

KF: I’d tell my husband and then probably do the same. I don’t mind conversing with fans, but I hate crowds and for that one reason I’d never walk the red carpet.

Thanks for that interesting and fun interview KF…Now… for the fun stuff!

Favorite Beverage? Coffee
Exercise or Bubble Bath? Bubble bath…even though I know I need to exercise.
Favorite Color? Khaki green
Take out or Dine in? hmmm, a little of both
Camping or Hotel? Camping
Sports or Chocolate? If it’s hockey I’ll take that. I love the game and love watching my sons play
Dogs or Cats? Dogs
Favorite Food? Lasagna
Favorite Song? There are too many too choose from
Favorite Movie? Anything Johnny Depp is in.
Favorite Car? Don’t have one.
Sex or Chocolate? (The answer “Both” is totally acceptable 😉 Well, then BOTH of course, one before the other usually too. 😉

And now for the essay part of the interview 😉

If you could go anywhere for a week, with anyone you wanted and no one would ever find out about it…where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

KF: I’d go to Italy, and tour the whole country with my husband.
