Mini Interview:

Like all authors, you have had your fair share of rejection letters. You obviously did not let the letters deter you. How did you keep your determination without getting discouraged?-

I self-published my book, however, when it came time for the review, I honestly felt sick.

I was always told if one door closes, another will open and that’s what I stuck with.  I have strong faith in God and I must say to me, prayer is the key.

It has been my experience, some things come quite easily (like creating the setting) and other things aren’t so easy (like deciding on a title). What comes easily to you and what do you find more difficult? -

What comes easily to me is giving my characters personality.

What’s difficult is naming them.  I have to choose the right name to fit the personality or otherwise, my stories will not work.

Please describe to us your relationship between you and your editor. What makes an author/editor relationship a success? -

Because I self-published my book, I never met my editor.

Don't Turn Around

Sixteen-year-old Noa has been a victim of the system ever since her parents died. Now living off the grid and trusting no one, she uses her hacking skills to stay anonymous and alone. But when she wakes up on a table in a warehouse with an IV in her arm and no memory of how she got there, Noa starts to wish she had someone on her side.

Enter Peter Gregory. A rich kid and the leader of a hacker alliance, Peter needs people with Noa’s talents on his team. Especially after a shady corporation threatens his life in no uncertain terms. But what Noa and Peter don’t realize is that Noa holds the key to a terrible secret, and there are those who’d stop at nothing to silence her for good.

The Turning

Jack is spending the summer on a private island far from modern conveniences. No Wi-Fi, no cell service, no one else on the island but a housekeeper and the two very peculiar children in his care. The first time Jack sees the huge black mansion atop a windswept hill, he senses something cold, something more sinister than even the dark house itself.

Soon, he feels terribly isolated and alone. Yet he is not alone. The house has visitors—peering in the windows, staring from across the shore. But why doesn’t anyone else see them . . . and what do they want? As secrets are revealed and darker truths surface, Jack desperately struggles to maintain a grip on reality. He knows what he sees, and he isn’t crazy. . . . Or is he?

Kidnapped in Key West

Twelve-year-old Eddie Malone is living a carefree life swimming and fishing in the Florida Keys in 1912 when suddenly his world is turned upside down. His father, a worker on Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railroad, is thrown into jail for stealing the railroad payroll. Convinced that he is responsible for his pa’s arrest, Eddie sets out for Key West with his faithful dog, Rex, on a daring mission to prove his father’s innocence.

Eddie arrives in Key West as preparations are under way for the arrival of Flagler’s first train. Eddie meets the Kimble twins, T. J. and Jen, who live at the Key West Lighthouse and are practicing for their part in the great celebration. They offer to help Eddie with his plan to find the real payroll thieves. Eddie finds them, all right, but they kidnap him and lock him aboard their sailboat. As the boat moves swiftly away from Key West, Eddie realizes he’s in serious trouble.

Can Eddie escape from the clutches of the ruthless thieves? Will he ever get back home to Marathon? Most importantly, will Eddie be able to prove Pa’s innocence?

LRW Lee

About the Author:  Since the age of eight, L. R. W. Lee knew she wanted to write a book. Fortunately or unfortunately, she required of herself that she have something significant to say; she sought to contribute to others in a way that could change their lives. Because a degree in Accounting at Cedarville University, as well as work in public and corporate accounting, did not provide riveting fodder for a best seller, she waited. Upon selling her business in early 2012, she had time to write and, more importantly, something significant to share.   L. R. W. Lee’s favorite musical is The Sound of Music. She hates scary movies, but loves piano and strings music, sunsets in Hawaii and a good cup of decaf, French press coffee (yes, decaf!). She also loves Ansel Adams prints and all manner of kinetic art.  http://www.lrwlee.com/#!bio/cerf

Book Spotlight/Giveaway: WOI Tour for Scott R.Caseley Author of Isosceles! Ends April 25th.


Isosceles1

WOI March/April 2013 Tour: Scott R.Caseley Author of Isosceles

About the Book:When he finds his best friend Trey Goodsby dead and almost completely submerged in a bathtub filled with bloody water, Sean McIntyre is determined to find out if it was an accident or suicide. Did his death accidental or intentional have anything to do with Madeline Edwards, the woman who came between them constantly through their thirteen-year friendship? The tale begins with the death of Trey Goodsby, and explores his relationships with family, friends, his romances, and which of the circumstances he found himself in that led to the tragic event, and the repercussions for those he left behind.

If you have that feeling that you’re coming up short…what will it take to feel equal?

Excerpt from book:

“Go over to the play area. I’ll deal with you once I’m done with…ah…whatever his name is.” Carter nodded to where the rest of the kids kneeled, stood, or sat on a blue carpet, watching a boy building with wooden toy blocks. Right away, I could sense he intended on crafting something difficult, a scale model of the courthouse down the road from Footbridge. While the boy’s physical appearance seemed rather ordinary, his skills could not be beat. He hadn’t misused a single block. Without any hesitation or second-guessing himself, he knew what to do to put everything in the right place.

“That’s so cool, Trey,” I heard a soft voice like the melodious whisper of birdsong, my intuition revealing the identity before my eyes did. Madeline swayed from side to side, beaming with her pearly-whites.

Trey paid her no mind though, allowing himself to be distracted only by his overgrown dirty-blonde hair, which kept going in his face. Sometimes, he didn’t even push it away. His focus so intense, a few times, he almost knocked into other kids. He never apologized for it, nor did most get upset. They seemed to understand he was in a zone, one with his creation. He circled the perimeter to detect if it needed something. Whenever he snapped his fingers, he’d call out “cylinder,” “triangle,” or “rectangle.” Madeline would select it out of a decaying cardboard box, to present it to him like an obedient puppy bringing a tennis ball to its owner.

Mr. Carter, with Sheldon behind him, returned from their business in the hallway. They joined the rest of us, studying Trey’s handiwork. Before long, Mr. Carter became entranced, too. It felt frustrating. Being an only child, I was used to being the center of my parents’ universe. Here, someone else stole the attention so rightfully mine. Worst of all, watching Madeline fawn over him drove me crazy. His hair was messy, his shirt dirty, and he was just average. Why did he hold her interest? Shouldn’t she see me instead? Mom knitted me this nice sweater and combed my hair before I went to the bus stop. My head started pounding from over-thinking the situation when Madeline moved toward him, letting her pigtail accidentally brush against his head. He didn’t seem to notice, but I sure did. I needed to take action.

Blog Tour/Book Review: Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor’s Secret.


The Inventor's Secret

Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor’s Secret by Chad Morris

About the Book: Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.

Welcome to Crabridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twin siblings Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather’s inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins begin following a trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge  Hall.

Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fiece adversary to discover their grandfather’s greatest secret-a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxsCUARWTAM&feature=youtu.be

 

My Review: According to the book, Crabridge Hall is a prestigious school where students can view living history watch a ship sail through their classroom, the invention is called the Bridge. This allows the class to watch as history actually happens. A chair used to show literature and unlocks what really goes on inside the human mind, where you can use a devise to find your way around the school grounds and many more. All invented by Oscar Crabridge the grandfather of Abby and Derick who happened to be admitted into this school. While Derick is a genius his twin sister isn’t.

The story is about twins Abby and Derick, the grandchildren of famous inventor Oscar Crabridge. When Oscar Crabridge and the twin’s parents were taken hostage by an old rivalry that needed a mysterious invention that could change the world for better or worse, Abby and Derick must spring into action to find then before its too late.   Their only hope is to follow the clues left by their grandfather. And the clues can only be found by those who remember the lessons of history. If you love time travel or mysteries you will love this book.

Book Review Tour/Giveaway: The Zebra Said Shhh! Ends March 22nd.


The Zebra Said Shhh

The Zebra Said Shhh written by M.R. Nelson and illustrated by Tamia Sheldon

About the Book: An exhausted zebra is ready for bed but the other animals at the zoo still want to play. Help the Zebra say “Shhh” to the lions, elephants and other noisy animals at the zoo. A calming bedtime book for little monkeys everywhere.

My Review: It was bedtime, time for the animals at the zoo to go to bed. As the Zebra was getting ready for bed he notices it wasn’t quiet. The animals were not sleeping but talking. The Zebra was very tired and could not go to sleep because of the noise. So the Zebra said, Shhh, to the monkey, to the lion, to the parrot, to seals, to the rhinoceros and the other animals, it’s time to go to sleep. But they did not want to go to sleep. Then all of a sudden it was quiet at the zoo.

Interesting bedtime story for children but I felt like a page was missing. A page that should have told us what suddenly made the noisy animals stop making noise. Story illustrated by Tamia Sheldon.

Pages: 44

Publisher: Xist Publishing

Disclaimer: As per FTC guidelines, I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation. All opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone.

About the Author: M.R. Nelson discovered a love for telling stories when her oldest child began to demand them at times when reading someone else’s stories out of a book was not possible. “The Zebra Says Shh” is her first published story, and is the story she tells most often, telling it almost every night at bedtime. She lives in San Diego with her husband and two children. http://xistpublishing.com/
