S.E. Jakes | Meet Sean and Ryker from RUNNING WILD

Thanks so much to Fresh Fiction for hosting me on the tour for RUNNING WILD: Havoc Book 1.  This is the start of a brand new series, with different heroes for each book and HEAs at the end of each book.  Sean Rush and Ryker stole my heart a long time ago, and I’m excited […]

Nancy J. Parra | How to Get Readers on the Edge of Their Seats

I’ll start at the beginning. Before you can get a reader on the edge of their seats, the reader must get to know, like, and sympathize with your character. Let’s face it a nameless, faceless woman running from a killer sort of bores us.  It reaches high up there in the “so what?” category. Therefore […]

Cool Cozy Picks from Melissa Bourbon

Combatting the heat and staying cool in July can be tough, but a great book can do the trick. Do you like to sit by the swimming pool, soak up the sun, and devour the latest mystery on your list? Or do you stretch out on the sofa, air conditioning blowing, and get sucked into […]

Cheryl Brooks | When the Supernatural Becomes Natural

The “Topic of Choice” option for a guest post during a blog tour can be a tough one for a writer. Discovering the seed of an idea seldom occurs instantaneously, and sometimes you have to fiddle around a bit before you find it. Since I’m obviously here to promote my latest release, REBEL (book ten […]

Chris Cannon | The Possibilities of Paranormal

Why do I write about shape-shifting dragons? I love all the possibilities involved with supernatural/paranormal worlds. In GOING DOWN IN FLAMES, Bryn learns she’s a shape- shifting dragon when flames shoot out of her mouth for the first time. She’s immediately thrust into a new world she doesn’t understand. Since I’m creating the world, I […]

Karri Thompson | The World of MIRROR X

What does the future hold for mankind? With the fear of a world-wide pandemic, World-War III, and the effects of climate change, it’s no wonder why Doomsday Preppers is a popular show on the National Geographic Channel. MIRROR X takes the reader into a world 1,003 years from now. The main character, Cassie, died during […]

Sara Humphreys | My Favorite Moment with Shane and Maya in VAMPIRE TROUBLE

Picking a favorite scene is almost as daunting as picking a favorite character but If I must then I must. Maya and Shane’s story is one of the most emotional that I’ve written and I sure hope that translates to the reader. More than one reader who’d read TALL, DARK, AND VAMPIRE (Dead in the […]

Revisiting Favorite Characters

The internet has been buzzing this week about the return of Harry Potter! On July 8, 2014, J.K. Rowling released a new short story on the extensive Pottermore website that offers a glimpse into Harry’s life as he attends the Quidditch World Cup with his family. He’s 34, has a few gray hairs, still wears […]

DiAnn Mills | Brainstorming Your Novel

Every novelist reaches a plateau in which the perfect story idea isn’t coming together. The plot germ is there, but the theme, setting, characters, and storyline seem to spin out of control. By using the acronym, BRAINSTORM, you can bring the whirling to a halt and anchor your writing onto a firm foundation. Believe in […]
