HEBBY ROMAN

THE BEST GAME
Damian Escobedo can’t believe his eyes. Not only is his ugly duckling childhood next-door neighbor all grown up, she’s blossomed into the most exquisite woman he’s ever seen. Until now, he’s resisted settling down, but one look at Liana De Leon has him head over heels. There’s only one problem: as far as he can tell, the feeling isn’t exactly mutual. After a decade as a top Manhattan model, Liana has returned to San Antonio seeking what she once wanted to escape: a quiet life, a simple home, a meaningful career, and marriage to a regular guy. A guy who will love her not because of how she looks, but because of who she is inside. The last thing she needs is San Antonio’s most eligible bachelor, Damian swooning at her feet. So why is he the first man to make her believe that dreams really do come true?

TRIPLE TREAT: THE PROS AND CONS OF WRITING A TRILOGY…CLIMBING HIGH~ MADELON SMID….TODAY’S GUEST

TODAY’S GUEST….

MADELON SMID

Welcome Madelona!!

climbing high

TRIPLE THREAT: The pros and Cons of writing a Trilogy

 

I love to read a series, where characters I learn about in the first book, show up in a second, third, fifth. Nothing pleases me more than discovering a sibling, or friend, introduced in one book as a secondary character, has come to life in his or her own story later. I’m invested in this character and want to see how his life unfolds.

 

This is why I chose to make my first publication with The Wild Rose Press part of a trilogy. My series, The Three Wise Men, tells the stories of three men who meet, as students at Harvard. Their love of computers brings them together. Their common goals and principles bond them.

 

The Pros of writing a trilogy are obvious. If I do a good job in the first book, not only enticing my readers to invest in my male protagonist, but in interesting them in his two friends, then I have readers eager to read two more of my stories. I also have a beginning for book two and much of the groundwork around my protagonist in my second and third book in place.

 

To hold my readers’ interest I have the opportunity in books two and three to let them peek into the ongoing life of my protagonist from the first book, seen as a secondary character in the second book. This resurrection also illustrates the passing of time and the changes in the lives of the three friends, as story one progresses to story three. It creates the continuity many readers seek.

 

The cons? Well, just try to keep those characters contained. You give them enough of a story line to make them interesting in the first book, then suddenly they want to race away on their own adventure. While you’re trying to plot out book two, the friend in book three is demanding attention. He knows just what he’ll do in a certain circumstance and wants you to write about it immediately.

 

You end up like a remote controlled vacuum, bouncing off one idea and knocking up against another. Soon you have small piles of detritus accumulating around the original task. Your clean manuscript disappears, while your mind attempts to head in all directions at once.

 

A trilogy can prove a detriment by forcing tight writing windows and deadlines on you. Readers wait to buy the next book in the series, anxious to find out if Josh is saved, if Sam finds his life mate. With the promise out there, you no longer have the luxury to doddle.

Writing the second book interferes with the need to publicize the first book. Anyone plugged into social media knows this has the potential to take great chunks of time out of a writer’s day.

 

I’ve come up with a few practices that aid me to keep focused on my priority piece. I set specific writing times for the story. I select one day a week when I don’t work on the book, but instead do all the publicity, social media, and office work accumulating through the week – yes, one of those piles of dirt my mental vacuum created rather than cleaned up. When the other characters and their stories intrude – generally in the middle of the night, or driving down a highway, I listen and take notes. I might rise and write the scene out as it unfolds at 3:00 am, or I might speak it into my tape recorder as I make the long drive between one prairie city and the next. Often I just grab a scrap of paper, jot down the most important points to keep my brain from shredding valuable content. This scribbled note sits by my laptop till my clean-up day comes around. I don’t so much as look at it again, on a day scheduled to work on my priority piece.

 

Using this method, I have completed Josh’s story, book two, High Ground.  Sam’s story, High Seas, is scheduled, with several scenes written, and many snippets noted to stimulate another scene or add richness to the story.

 

Finding balance in life is important, and so having focused intently on writing High Ground for five weeks, I am now taking a week to see some new country, loll about in a spa and spend time with my husband (financial adviser, manager, techie and sounding board). This reprieve provides the distance needed to bring objectivity to the roll of editor.

 

Yes, High Ground waits to have its cliché’s sheared away. It begs me to carve in clarity, chemistry and conflict. “Mold distinctive metaphors,” the form calls to the master, “and for goodness sake, soften the shape of their sensual attraction.” All this takes as much time, and work than writing the first draft. But there is an excitement in addressing each issue, and in challenging yourself to create something uniquely your own.

 

Thank you for taking the time to be with us and our readers today!!

Billionaire Jake Ingles is the media’s golden boy. The cameras love his fabulous face and form, his high-powered business deals, and daring adventures. On a mountain in France, Jake saves the one incomparable woman he’ll love for the rest of his life, but his fame places her beyond his reach.

Siree McConnell, forensic accountant, chooses to live anonymously to avoid the press that caused her father’s death. She refuses to tangle with the gorgeous male if it means stepping back into the spotlight, until he needs her help. Once she uncovers the thieves threatening Jake’s conglomerate, she gives in to her longing to find ecstasy in his arms. But the cost of being with him is exposure to the media and an enemy that tears them apart.

Now she has a new rescue mission: their relationship. For he will do anything to keep her safe, even walk away. It’s up to her to show him their love is worth any risk.

THE KIVERSON CASE~ JULIE C. GILBERT…..CHRISTIAN MYSTERY

kiverson banner

Title:  The Kiverson Case

Series:  Heartfelt Cases

Author:  Julie C. Gilbert

Release Date:  Early 2014

Genre:  Christian Mystery

Presented by:  As You Wish Tours

BLURB

One man’s vendetta could cost them everything …

When a routine arrest turns deadly, FBI Special Agents Julie Ann and Patrick Duncan are drawn into a dangerous game with Kevin Kiverson, a man with little to lose and much to avenge.

In her heart, Ann knows they will catch Kevin, but she doesn’t know when or how or what sacrifices will be made along the way. She’s prepared to risk her life for others but will her resolve hold when the threat turns to her baby boy?


PROLOGUE

Kiverson Residence

Vienna, VA

Five years ago

“The only thing you kids need to know is to protect the family,” Asan Kiverson said. His gaze bore into each of his children.

Kevin, the eldest, returned his gaze steadily.

Angela, the middle child, nodded hesitantly, so Asan gave her a reassuring smile.

His smile faded when he looked at his youngest child. “What’s the matter, Benjamin? Don’t you believe me?”

“Yes, Papa,” the boy murmured.

“That’s my boy. You can choose your own path, but always remember the family protects its own. One day, perhaps you kids will be called upon to protect the family.”


AUTHOR BIO

Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction.

She likes teaching, writing, reading, sleeping, doing puzzles, and hanging out with friends. (Not necessarily in that order).

Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under the thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.

Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody’s looking.

RANDY LINDSEY~ THE GATHERING: END’S BEGINNING….BLOG HOP AND REVIEW

BLOG HOP AND REVIEW….

~THE GATHERING: END’S BEGINNING~

RANDY LINDSAY

*Debut author*

Blog Hop Banner

**Author’s website**

“The Gatering is the first novel in the Beginning’s End series. These stories deal with the events leading up to the end of the world. “

“What sort of topics does a person blog about with this sort of story? Two things came to my mind: emergency prepardeness and the apocalypse. Expect plenty of posts about both. ”

The Gathering*Amazon*

Robert Williams didn’t expect an early honorable release from his mission, but upon his return home, he sees the reason for the surprise decision. Unemployment, rampant violence, and frequent food shortages have put the United States on the brink of another civil war. As the threads of society unravel, the Williams family must adapt to drastic changes as the long-foretold gathering begins to take place.

About the author……

RANDY LINDSAY is a native of Arizona. From an early age, his mind traveled in new and unusual directions. His preoccupation with “what if” eventually led him to write speculative fiction. According to his wife, “everything is a story to Randy.” And it is. The Gathering is his first novel, but he has been published in a variety of science-fiction and fantasy anthologies. He lives in Mesa with his wife and five of his nine children. If you want to find out more you can check out his website at RandyLindsay.net.
++++
MY THOUGHTS:
THE GATHERING: END’S BEGINNING by Randy Lindsey is an intriguing Science-Fiction/Fantasy/Suspense. This is not only a tale of intrigue, suspense, sacrifice, but it is also a tale of political issues and another civil war on the horizon. With violence running rampant, unemployment on the rise, and a world on the blink of disaster. Remind you of anything? This is a great addition into the LDS genre. “The Gathering: End’s Beginning” is a powerful tale! The apocalypse just may be coming and leads up to the Second Coming of Christ. 
A very emotional as well as intriguing tale.  Well written with engaging characters and an intriguing storyline. A riveting and captivating tale. Great debut. Bring on the next installment. Received for an honest review from the author.
RATING: 4
HEAT RATING: SWEET
