Liz Schulte Announces Release of New Title!

Author Liz Schulte is pleased to announce the release of her book Secrets. This is the first book of the Guardian Trilogy.

While Olivia Martin observed life through her camera, the abyss gazed back at her. She discovers mysterious men follow her around, people close to her are dying, and her dreams are no longer her own as she falls head over heels for a perfect stranger. A chance encounter leads to an obsession that could destroy everything she has ever known or loved. Olivia is about to find out there is a lot she doesn’t know and sometimes what you don’t know can kill you.

Congratulations Liz on your new release. We all wish you much success!

Secrets is available from Amazon. You can learn more about Liz at her blog.

Meet the Author: Lisa Vandiver

Author Lisa Vandiver

Lisa Vandiver sees herself as a story-teller with a simple and to-the-point style. If the reader has to continually stop reading to go look up words, the author has unwittingly detracted from the flow and pace of the story.

She says, “I’ve been criticized for using simple descriptive words and I’ve been praised for using them. . . I do broaden my language and descriptions in various forms, but, I feel that most readers want to read an entertaining novel for pleasure, not to see how many ‘fancy’ descriptive words the Author knows.” Continue reading “Meet the Author: Lisa Vandiver”

Lili Tufel goes to Fantasy Island!

Author Lili Tufel

Friend and author Lili Tufel contacted me with some great news she wants to share. She just signed with Fantasy Island Publishing.

I caught up with Lili while she was house-hunting for just the right mansion with “s” shaped hedges. She said,  “I’ve spent nine months promoting SAND on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and GoodReads, but only as an ebook. Now I’m happy to say that SAND will finally be available in bookstores!”

Her book, Sand is a military-style thriller:

Dallas is a Special Forces Lieutenant who is driven by his promise to protect the Colonel’s daughter Abby from an opium drug lord. He is torn between duty and his love for her and when he discovers that the drug lord’s charming—murderous son has befriended Abby, there’s no limit to how far he is willing to go to protect her.

Learn more at her website and her excellent blog. We wish Lili all the best success and happiness in her endeavors with Fantasy Island Publishing. Lili also promised me an interview and I am going to hold her to that.

The Carrots Stole My Plot Bunnies! – by Vickie Johnstone

Author Vickie Johnstone

With today being Saturday, a nice long lay-in was the way to begin the day. Followed by a nice long shower. Take it slow, it’s the weekend. The body goes into super slow-mo and the brain kind of follows. But that wasn’t such a great thing today, seeing as I wisely or unwisely decided to sign up for NanoWrimo this month. It began well. A nice sprint in the first week. Yes, my characters were buzzing in my brain, leaping out on to the page, whispering in my ear, doing funny things in my head. One of them is a dog so now and then he was voofing like crazy. What can he do now? Yep he was chasing a Frisbee all over the page. This is fun, I thought.

Cue week two. Not bad. Not as much gung-ho, here I go as week one, but hey, that’s ok, it’s still fun really. The characters were still living. Sort of. In funny land. Continue reading “The Carrots Stole My Plot Bunnies! – by Vickie Johnstone”
