SNEAK PREVIEW FROM CHRISTMAS BOX SET – DANTE’S GIFT

One of my favorite authors has a book in this collection. How cool is that?

P.C. Zick - Author/Editor

I had the privilege to beta read this novella from the upcoming Christmas Pets and Kisses by Aubrey Wynne. Dante’s Gift is a lovely contemporary romance with bits of history and a trip to Italy in the mix. I loved all the characters, but really fell in love with the grandmother in this story. Sweet and romantic, Dante’s Gift crosses oceans and generations to melt even the hardest of hearts.
Dante’s Gift – Aubrey Wynne
Seventy years ago, a collie mix brought two hearts together in war torn Italy. Will their story help their grandson find his own Christmas love?

Author Interview – Michael Robertson

author image 01

MICHAEL ROBERTSON is a writer of dark post apocalyptic fiction, horror, and science fiction. He’s been writing for over fifteen years and has been published in several anthologies and magazines, as well as being published by HarperCollins.

His most poplar series is his Crash series. It’s a dark look at the apocalypse, brought about by financial collapse rather than a zombie plague. Although his next book The Alpha Plague, is a much more traditional post apocalyptic story inspired by 28 Days Later.

He has plans for several science fiction books and is currently writing the first draft of New Reality 3: Fear, which will finish off his New Reality series.

As a father of two young children, he writes when he can, which is mostly before they get up and after they’ve gone to bed.

He loves reading, writing, watching movies, and spending time with his family. Continue Reading

author image 01BIO

Danielle Lee Zwissler is an Ohio author. She is a big fan of romance as well as fantasy. She likes her characters to have larger than life personalities, a fair amount of money, and if possible, red hair!

The first book that she had published was “Her Last Chance” and immediately after was the second book of the Daniels Dynasty,”The Art of Seduction”. Soon after, Books-to-go-Now! put out an erotic title of hers “The Trio of Sin”.

Now, Danielle is currently working with four different publishers as well as a group of writers called “The Iron Writer Challenge” a challenge in which 5 writers compete against one another with stories that they’ve written of only 500 words! Thus far, Danielle has won 8 out of the 11 challenges that she has taken.

Currently her list of novels includes several erotica, written under the pen name Heather Lane, western romance, romantic comedies, flash fiction, and soon to be released a young adult fantasy series!

Danielle believes her storytelling and love of writing stems from reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Series as well as great romance writers, Linda Lael Miller, Bella Andre, and Diana Palmer.

Author Interview Series One – Nina Falkestav

Nina Falkestav

BIO

I have an over-active imagination and a profound love of both non-talking and talking animals which is why I write fantasy (MG/YA) and picture books.I started acting in plays put up in kindergarten, and joined me first theater classes when I was eleven.

Since then I’ve had schooling in the theatrical arts in several schools, and several levels of education. MY love of writing also started at an early age, and has run partly alongside my interest in theater and directing/producing. I have written some shorter fiction and have several started longer stories, but it wasn’t until I got ill and had to spend three days a week in lengthy treatments that I started writing more seriously, mainly because there was little else in the way of creativity to do.

I’ve written two picture books, that pictures are now being commissioned for, and I am currently working on a YA fantasy. My computer and phone are filled with a myriad of further ideas for stories and the list continues to grow. I currently write in Swedish, but I’m hoping to get my Work In Progress translated as soon as it is finished.

I holds a degree in animal husbandry aimed towards pets I have a pionus parrot, and all my current work features cats, probably an effect of living with seven of them.

I have an over-active imagination and a profound love of both non-talking and talking animals which is why I , so far, write fantasy (MG/YA) and picture books. Would love to try to write horror or ghost stories at some point too.

D. Drache Dragao

BIO

I’m Drache. I was born in the Gateway City in the Show-Me-State in July of 1987 (damn, I feel old). I’m a sucker for martial arts, though my first love was baseball. The first time I tried to get involved with politics was in second grade competing with a fourth grader and it was a school election; I lost and I didn’t take it well. But, let’s talk about me as a writer. I’m of the belief that writing should reflect both the (wo)man and his/her world, so my content has similarities to my experiences, lifetime thus far, and interactions. As far as my writing goes, see my statement about how writing should reflect the (wo)man and his/her world. In other words, art imitates life and that’s a belief that many share.

Author Interview Series One – Kat Crimson

author image kcrimson 01 A

Kat Crimson

Kat Crimson uses her wit and wiles to infiltrate the minds of her characters creating a new wave of cerebral erotica, which engages the brains, the hearts and the loins of her readers in equal measure, adding depth and dimension to what has, in the past, widely been considered to be a genre comprised only of talentless perverts. Untrue. Kat Crimson is a warrior for the cause, on a mission to prove that erotica can arouse the mind as much as the middle bits and that kink can be quality.

Holed up in her log cabin in the frozen northern wilds, where she keeps only the company of cats, Kat sits by a raging hearth fire and taps at the keys of her battered laptop, slaving away in an effort to unearth the perfect recipe to unlock the deepest hungers of your soul. So far, this is what she has come up with:

Four parts pure dark genius, three parts heat, two parts taboo, one part willful indifference and irreverence infused with gritty black humor, a dash of silliness and a sprinkling of chaos – it’s a work in progress…

Kat has a liberal arts degree which is most functional as a coffee coaster. She pursued a broad spectrum of subjects while at university, including creative writing, which she could never fully get into while she was there because the subject matter that she was most passionate about penning was apparently not suitable. Kat has several titles available, including Bait the Hook and Seduced by 2.

Dabbling in a wide variety of things from poetry and pastry to photography and fetish, Kat is a Jill of all trades, but she is mastered by none.

J. E. Feldman

BIO

Born to a loving family in South Carolina, Jade began to show an interest in reading and writing at the early age of 3. As the years passed by slowly with many adventures of travel and new friends, her stories amassed to a great number. At the age of 15, she decided to create a Fantasy Writers group as a safe haven and family-like networking.

LA Screenwriter – Toni Morrison on Failure …

In an absence of a reblog option:

Toni Morrison on Failure, Rewriting, and Experimentation

As this month is Women’s History month, we wanted to take a moment to highlight one of the most important writers — male or female — of the last century.

No, Toni Morrison isn’t a screenwriter, but her thoughts on writing surpass form and are completely applicable whether you’re writing a broad comedy or an indie drama. In an interview with NEA Arts Magazine, Morrison discussed responsibility to ones characters, writing what you don’t know, and why failure is a good thing … See the complete article – by Angela
