EMPIRE TEASER 3 ADDICTIVE

EXCERPT:

In life, there are people who touch our lives and leave lasting marks. There are people who cut us and do so in a way that we feel as if we might never heal. If we’re lucky, we find that one person who can soothe the ache of our wounds, if not heal them. That one person who sees our flaws as perfection. That one person who can make us whole again.

Eric shoves me against the wall of that alcove, and with that window beside us, overlooking the city, his big body pressed to mine, his kiss not only devours me—it speaks to me. He’s my one person and I’m his. I feel that in his touch. I feel that in the way we connect. I taste it in his kiss. I don’t know where this leads us. I don’t know if it means we can overcome the Kingston family, but I know we can overcome his demons. He doesn’t, though. I taste that in his kiss as well. There is torment, a feeling like he’s bad for me. That he shouldn’t want me and the only comfort I find in this and where we’re headed is that he isn’t pushing me away—he’s pulling me closer. And I will hold him tighter.

I sink into the hard lines of his body, slide my hands under his shirt, hard muscle flexing beneath my palms, the thick ridge of his erection pressed to my belly. God, how I want him, how I ache for more, and the next lick of his tongue just about undoes me. I tug on his shirt. “Take it off,” I order, wanting to feel him closer.

He reaches over his head and tugs it free and then fixes me in one of those scorching blue-eyed stares, the way he had the first night we met, and I’m melting right here in this office for him. He tugs my shirt over my head and unhooks the front of my bra, his gaze raking over my naked breasts, my nipples puckering beneath his inspection, and my sex clenching, empty, so very empty without him. “Better?” he challenges, his attention settling on my face.

My hands come down on his upper arms, the jaguar on his right shoulder, reminding me just how much he wants to deny his heritage. It reminds me just how much this family burns him alive. “A little.” I slide my hands down his hips and boldly stroke the line ofhis zipper, the thick ridge of his erection.

He groans, one of his hands covering my hand, the other hand catching my hair, a rough pull as his mouth closes down on mine again. And then he’s devouring me again and I love it. I love that I’ve drawn this deep, guttural reaction from him. I love that he’s all here with me, not in his own head, not doubting how good he is for me. Not swimming in the ocean of numbers in his head. Not in the hell of the Kingston family.

This drives me. I want to push him. I want to keep him here, with me. I squeeze his erection through his pants and whisper, “Why aren’t you inside me already?”

He turns me, pressing me to the wall like he had in the cottage, his big body wrapping my body, his hands on my breasts, fingers teasing my nipples, lips at my ear. “You were always sweeter than revenge,” he promises. “Always more addictive.” He plucks at my nipples. “So fucking addictive and I hated you for that.”

He reaches for my zipper and I squeeze my eyes shut. I don’t have to ask what he means. I understand. From the moment we met, he was in my head, in my heart, his touch imprinted on my body. The man I compared all others to, and they came up short. “I hated you, too.”

His hands press under the denim at my hips. He caresses them down my legs and then his arm is wrapping my waist and he’s lifting me. In a few quick moves, I’m naked and he’s standing at my hips, one palm possessively on my backside. The other on mybelly. “Do you hate me now?” His fingers walk down to my sex and he cups me.

“Yes.” I look at him. “I still hate you for having this much control over me.” He slides his fingers along the seam of my sex, sending sensations darting through my body.

“Is that a bad thing?” he challenges, his palm squeezing my backside, his fingers slipping inside me.

“Yes,” I say, panting my way through that one word and somehow adding, “Because when I look in your eyes, like I am now, I see expectations. The wrong ones.”

He scowls and suddenly he’s turning me, pressing my back to the wall, his legs caging mine. “What does that mean?” he demands.

“It means as long as you expect to hurt me, as long as you expect you being a savant, you being different from me, to make us less, we will be. It means, you expect us to fail and so we will.” I swallow hard, my hand planting on his chest, his heart thundering beneath my palm, pounding out an emotional beat. “You think I can’t handle who and what you are. You still think I’m the princess and you’re the bastard.”

He tangles his fingers into my hair, his touch rough, erotic, as he drags my lips to his. “We are the bastard and the princess, but I don’t care anymore. I want you. I fucking need you. Do you understand me?”

Heat rushes over me, through my body, over my skin and settles in my heart and my sex. “I fucking need you, too.”

“Good, because I might have asked you to stay, but I never intended to let you go. I’m not going to let you go. I’m not going to let us go.”

♥♥REVIEW:♥♥♥

Well it’s finally here The Empire, and things carry on from the end of The Princess. Eric and Harper have survived one blow after another, and all it does is make their relationship stronger.
I also love that Walker Security play a large part of in the protection, and a little dickie bird told me Savage is getting his own trilogy and that one to forward too.
Lisa keeps the tension high in this last part of the Eric and Harper adventure. As always the sex is hot and the revelations keep coming while Eric’s and Harper are trying to roll with what ever comes at them.
As usual with have dual points of view you feel integrated into the storyline. I not giving any of what happens away. We all know the journey to get to their happily ever after is filled with potholes with giant boulders coming at them.

Audiobook Review Tour: BITE ME (The Puritan Coven Series Book 1 )Written by LOUISE CYPRESS, Narrated by Reba Buhr and Alexander Cendese!@jennbardsley @rebabuhr @alexcendese

Author: Louise Cypress

Narrators: Reba Buhr, Alexander Cendese

Length: 8 hours 2 minutes

Series: The Puritan Coven Series, Book 1

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Release date: Jan. 10, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance; Young Adult

A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who’s unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California, and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

Louise Cypress believes in friendship, true love, and the everlasting power of books. She has never met a vampire or a mermaid, but she has been to a Love Sucks concert on Valentine’s Day. She can often be found curled up with a romance novel on Saturday night, diet soda in hand, secretly wishing bustles were back in fashion. Louise is from San Diego, California, where the beach is crowded and summer is immortal.

You have to listen the narrators are great

4 star review

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Louise Cypress. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.



Q&A with Louse Cypress, author of BITE ME

  • Question One: BITE ME is about a nerdy high school senior who transforms into a vampire vixen, unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her. What inspired you to write about vampires?
    • Louise: As a reader, sometimes I just want to read a book for fun. It’s the same thing as an author. In my day job, I write a lot of technical things that can be boring, so at night when I sat down to write fiction, I wanted to entertain myself. Like many readers, I can’t get enough vampire romance in my life, and BITE ME has humor mixed in, so hopefully it will make people laugh too.
  • Question Two: You mentioned humor, is BITE ME intentionally funny?
    • Louise: Yes, hopefully you find BITE ME to be laugh out loud funny. One of my favorite scenes is right at the beginning when Morgan is bitten. She’s in the bathroom, drying her hands on a towel, and a four-year-old vampire enters the room without knocking. Eighteen-year-old Morgan thinks to herself, “Don’t preschoolers understand about privacy?” This is a book that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
  • Question Three: In BITE ME, Morgan has a special relationship with her Grandma Mimi, who’s a real fashionista. Was that character dynamic inspired by your own grandmother?
    • Louise: Yes, in fact I dedicated the book to my Grandma Gerry, who always wore stockings, a silk dress, flashy jewelry, and a full face of makeup. She had her hair done once a week at the salon.
  • Question Four: Are there more books planned in the Puritan Coven Series?
    • Louise: Right now this is a three book series. Tantor Media is publishing the unabridged audiobook versions of BITE ME, HUNT ME, and SLAY ME.
  • Question Five: What’s HUNT ME about?
    • Louise: HUNT ME is a second chance romance about Morgan’s friend Esma, and her ex-boyfriend Chase. Here’s the hook: “An all-girls vampire camping trip turns deadly when a sasquatch hunter is accidentally killed.” Be ready to get sucked into the Puritan Coven!

Why YA Books Matter to Teens and Adults

By Louise Cypress

I love reading YA because the stories are full of hope and optimism. The world is still full of possibilities. There are no bills to bay, baskets of laundry to fold, or weeds to pull in the backyard. Reading a YA novel lets me escape to a time in my life when my biggest worry was getting good grades so I could go to college. Listening to a YA book on audio is even better, because it lets me accomplish all of the “adulting” tasks I need to do, like cleaning the house or walking on the treadmill, while immersing myself in a story.

Young Adult books matter to teens and adults. I’ve seen research that suggests that up to 60% of all YA readers are over the age of eighteen. For indie books, that percentage is even higher. There is something about the YA genre that attracts readers of all ages, yet you don’t see that happening with other branches of KidLit. Yes, an adult might buy a picture book to give to a niece or nephew, but she doesn’t circle the release date on her calendar and download the picture book on her Kindle the moment it comes out. YA is special.

I love writing YA because when I was in high school I was so focused on studying that I didn’t make time for fun. I went to a couple of dances but missed my senior prom. I had a boyfriend for a couple of weeks, but that was it. In high school I always felt too nerdy to love. All of my YA books feature main characters who are nerdy, but who eventually become brave enough to date and embrace romance on their own terms. Of course, in BITE ME, Morgan runs into a bit of trouble. She doesn’t know that she’s a vampire, or that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her. At least my high school experience didn’t involve Promageddon!


Top 10 List

Top Ten Reasons Why Twihards will love BITE ME

  1. You love it when Dracula-lore is reinvented in a fresh way.
  2. You can handle campy humor.
  3. You enjoy books where you root for the main character.
  4. You appreciate a good transformation scene, like when a main character becomes a vampire.
  5. You don’t think YA books have to have sex in them.
  6. Vampire family dynamics intrigue you.
  7. You’ve imagined what it would be like to be a vampire.
  8. You’re a Twihard, but don’t like love triangles.
  9. In addition to Twilight, you also love Buffy.
  10. You believe in true love!

Review Blast: DIARY OF A BAD BOY by USA Today Bestselling Author MEGHAN QUINN is Now LIVE!@AuthorMegQuinn @InkslingerPR

 

MQDiaryBookCover55x85_MEDIUM

Dear Diary,

I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I’m not talking about the “court mandated community service,” or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head” kind of trouble.

I wish it were that simple.

Nope. I’m talking about the “falling in love with one of my client’s daughters,” kind of trouble . . .
The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out.

How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more.

Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green.

Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she’s my client’s daughter.

Dating her might be the best or worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.

REVIEW:

I really loved this book, at first I thought how can I be sympathetic to the lead character bad boy Roark. Meghan Quinn worked her magic on me and by the end I loved him, just not the same way as Sutton would. What happens when a drunken Irishmen gets into a fight and ends up with good girl Sutton’s phone. I loved all texting each other it was so funny. I could go on, but I not going to spoil for you.

This written with a dual points of view, and narration from Roark’s diary which is hilarious.
As always it’s a treat to read one of Meghan’s romantic comedies, but with real feelings you feel while enjoying the book. This book had it all, great chemistry, interesting sex life, and wonderfully interesting characters.
Come and meet Roark and Sutton and have a blast.

Blog Tour + Review: KEEP IT CLASSY ( Bear Bottom MC 7 ) by USA Today Bestselling Author LANI LYNN VALE!@LaniLynnVale @InkslingerPR

 

 

REVEAL-COVER-KeepItClassy

 

Ghosts are real.

Well, technically speaking, maybe not. But the ones that haunt a man’s soul? Those are very real. So real, in fact, that there are times when Castiel would rather silence them forever in the worst way possible than to go on living with them haunting his every step.

All it took was one single second in time for his attention to drift, and everything changed.

Life as he once knew it, is over.

Now he’s struggling to make sense of the pieces that are left, and he’s fairly sure at least half of them are missing.

He’s living for three things now.

His club—the Bear Bottom Guardians.

His work as a police officer for Bear Bottom Police Department.

And the occasional glimpse of a girl that makes his spirit feel free.

Despite the ghosts that haunt him, he’s not willing to present them with another target. Which is why he has to stay away from her. He can’t touch her. He can’t talk to her. He can’t get anywhere near her.

Not and live with himself afterward.

The only problem is, Turner doesn’t care what Castiel wants. She also has a solution for his ghosts.

You may call her Ms. Ghostbuster.

REVIEW:

Wow this has to be my new favorite in the series, but the one I read is always my favorite. This has blown away. Our leading lady Turner and best friend of Jubilee from It Happens. Castiel is a police detective, and much to Turner’s disgust give her a speeding ticket. In this one it’s annoyance at first sight.
Castiel is a big teddy bear when he shows his true colors, when Turner needs his help he is there for as they both realise they have fallen for each other. There always plenty of action in this series and this is no different. As always it comes down to love and family even if your blood or not. I’m not saying anything about the story as I want you to enjoy as much as I did.
Except to say Turner and Castiel were beautiful together, as well as hot and sexy. This was a perfect Lani Lynn Vale read it had it all.

REVIEW:

I do like read a good paranormal romance, and this is a good paranormal romance. I absolutely love dragons. This is book one in a new series, but can be read as a standalone. Now I got that out of the way, and we are introduced to Raven who was suffering from brain cancer and the end was near and she wanted to die she had enough.

When a man visit who she thinks is death, but instead offers her life.
Gabriel is suffering from a curse and only has so long before he is turned to stone and needs help. So Raven and Gabriel have to work together to find a way to break the curse.
This has all Love, Hot Sex, magic, voodoo black magic all mixed together creates an absorbing new series and great paranormal romance. The story is told from dual points of view. I have also discovered a new author which is a win win for me.

About ARRANGE ME 

My name is Courtney Jane Salinger…
and I’m sick of games.

Sick of the Friday night bar-scene-cum-meat-market.
Sick of the boy-girl, man-woman, mars-venus, flirtation-without-expectation, game-playing nonsense.
Sick of awful dates and one-night stands, booty calls and guys who don’t call back, mixed messages or NO messages and—and—and…I’m sick of all of it.

I’m done.
I just can’t do it anymore.
It’s too hard, and worse: little by little, it’s making me hard.
It’s breaking my heart.

What DO I want?
That’s easy.

I want a house in suburbia with a white picket fence.
I want babies to buckle into a minivan.
But most of all, I want to be married.
I want a husband.

So I’ve made an important decision: I’m making my escape from the dating world and the single life.
I’ve filled out my application on ArrangeMe.com and I’m putting my fate into the hands of experts.

Is it a little scary?
Sure.
I mean, I have no idea who I’ll end up with. After all, I’m planning to marry a complete stranger.

But between you and me?
I can’t wait.
Being arranged can’t possibly be worse than being single.
Can it?

ARRANGE ME THE GIRLS

REVIEW:

Arrange Me is an unusual romance, but a beautifully written one. Courtney a 28 year old New Yorker is tired of dating the never-ending disappointments, and the whole meat market. While at Tidewaters with her friend Dina who enjoys the hook-ups etc, Courtney talks to the barman Josh, and bemoans her situation and tells him she wants to get married and how unhappy she is.
So after watching an advert on the television for ArrangeMe.com she decides to go for it, and let the experts to match her with her future husband.
This is premise of the book and there is quite a lot going on. We wait with Courtney while she finds out who husband is, and that happens at the altar.
This Katy at her best drawing into story so much I couldn’t put it down as we watch everyone around Courtney who are appalled at her choice. So you must read the book to find out who stands alter waiting for her. One reminder this book one of a duo, but don’t worry this a hot sexy and beautiful romance.

The last thing Bronson Warner ever wanted was to be a groom. The second to the last thing he ever wanted was to be a dad. Through a weird twist of fate, he’s now both within the span of a few weeks.

REVIEW:

I LOVE Jami’s sports romances, and wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting. This is the Gone Missing Detective Agency with a great romance, with a lot of suspense thrown in to make it more interesting. What a character Bronson is. Working on a missing person’s case Bronson tries to persuade the daughter of what he believes a crooked crime family. Rebecca, a society woman to help him with information.
It’s not until Rebecca needs help that she approaches Bronson. Total opposites with nothing in common, to keep her safe that decide to a fake marriage so they can stay in same house.
This is so entertaining watching Rebecca and Bronson being so careful around each, we know what usually happens with fake marriages. This is one stop read because I couldn’t put it down.To find out what happens Grap this brand new book and hopefully series.

Audiobook Review Tour: SALVAGE RAT Written by LARRY N. MARTIN, Narrated by JEFFREY KAFER!@LNMartinAuthor @JeffreyKafer

 

Author: Larry N. Martin

Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer

Length: 8 hours 56 minutes

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Released: Sep. 9, 2018

Genre: Military Science Fiction

Star Force pilot and hero Wyatt McCoy left his medals and career behind after the Rim Wars, disillusioned and bitter when he learns the truths behind the conflict. He takes his converted gunship, the Nellie B, and heads to the Near Fringe, salvaging derelict ships and abandoned stations and mining colonies.

Dr. Beth Parker is a space archaeologist, documenting the history of planetary expansion and colonization for Kalok Enterprises and the Interplanetary Mining Guild. A piece of alien technology embeds itself in Beth’s arm, giving her the ability to see the energy impressions of long-ago people and events. When Beth uncovers proof of genocide that could bring down the big mining companies, she’s the target of assassins.

Wyatt makes a split-second decision to intervene, launching them both into a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with some of the most powerful organizations in the system. They can prove Kalok and Interplan killed millions – but can they live long enough to tell their story?

I do enjoy my sci-fi so this book was very entertaining when Wyatt ex-military Salvage Rat lands on a planet which has top salvage. While there he spots a young women being shot at so he decides to help Beth a Space Archaeologist getaway.

So begins a partnership which leads them straight into the middle of rebellion as the more they salvage the evidence they find of mass cover ups.
Where whole colonies have been destroyed.

This is told from Wyatt’s point of view the narrator has a great voice that kept me on the ship with him. A Great piece of Science Fiction, one I would enjoy again.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Larry N. Martin. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Free CD copies of the Salvage Rat audiobook are available to reviewers through the Adopt-An-Audiobook program.

Profile of Wyatt McCoy, protagonist of Salvage Rat

Wyatt William McCoy

Height 6’2”

Weight 190 lbs

Muscled athletic build / gymnast build

Dark brown hair

Dark brown eyes

Medium skin tone

Age 32

Wyatt was born on Ceristan Station, an oribiting military base for Star Force. His mother Adrianna Marie Alfonsi, was a Vipor pilot for Star Force and moved to piloting military shuttles for officers when well into her pregnancy with Wyatt. His father was Brodie Callum McCoy, a gunship pilot for Star Force. Wyatt grew up on Ceristan, spending much of his time in the youth home with other military children, while his parents were on assignment. He grew up being groomed for Star Force and never considered another path. As he would later tell others, “piloting is in my blood.”

Wyatt prefers reality in both his food and his experiences. In a world where virtual reality, synthetics, and artificial constructs are prevalent, Wyatt wants to plant his feet on solid ground and experience nature with all of her unpredictability. He’d rather have tasteless food that was harvested than a gourmet meal out of a food synthesizer.

Wyatt’s favorite pastime is tinkering and improving the Nellie B. To him, she’s more than a ship and has saved him countless times. Some might consider it an obsession but when you’re in the Dark and there’s no one for light years, your ship is everything.

Q&A with LARRY N. MARTIN, Author of Salvage Rat

  • Were there any real-life inspirations behind your writing?
    • When working on a story, whether my own, one I’m co-authoring, or even those I’m working on behind the scenes, I try to immerse myself in the world with what I view and read. I am a visual person and having a picture of characters, the world, and its elements help me tell the story. For Salvage Rat, I switched my pleasure reading to science fiction and turned to every “space” movie I could find on streaming. For this book, it included The Expanse, Dark Matter, Altered Carbon and books by David Weber, Dan Simmons, and David Drake. A single image or situation will sometimes take hold, and my mind will start writing an entire story based on “what if?”
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What to do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I can’t afford burn-out or writer’s block. My partner and I are full-time writers and make our living from books. Regardless of whose name is on the cover, we work on everything together so there are often several works in queue. That helps when you get stuck because often the boredom or block comes from not having the story clear in your mind. I’ll switch to another book, often in a different genre, until the pieces fall back into place and I can continue. The variety of working on multiple projects also helps because not all projects are in the same stage and it takes a different mindset to revise, edit, format, or promote than it does to write.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
    • Most definitely. While I enjoy works of fantasy, I know enough history to know that it wasn’t nearly as mystical or magical as it is portrayed in the books and that the middle ages didn’t smell so good. I’d opt for going forward in time to the major cities of the world to see what science and technology had been developed. I love science fiction and would love to see how things have evolved; that is if we haven’t messed up too badly.
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?
    • This was a much tougher question than I thought it would be. I settled on Steven Strait (from The Expanse) to play Wyatt. Maybe bulk him up a little, but the overall presence and feel he lends is perfect. For Beth, I’d cast Olivia Wilde. She has the look and the strong personality that lends itself to the character. Beth isn’t a follower and while not a soldier in the traditional sense, she can hold her own.
      12. What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
      To each, their own and we can agree to disagree. I grew up with a mother who read to me every night and hearing a book holds a special place in my heart. We did the same with our own children, carrying on the tradition. I enjoy being able to close my eyes and lose myself in the story (though not when driving). Hearing a book versus reading it is not better or worse, just different. Audio also is a great alternative for situations when you couldn’t otherwise read. I no longer have to commute to work, but when I was spending hours on the road each day, audio books made it so much better. I still regularly listen to the BBC version of The Lord of the Rings on long car trips.
  • What gets you out of a writing slump? What about a reading slump?
    • Somewhat like writer’s block, you can’t afford to not keep at it. Often just working on another project for a short while will help. I’ve found a similar approach to reading slumps. I’ve now moved mostly to eReader and so have several in-process books at any given time. The slump is usually because what I’m reading doesn’t fit with my mood and switching from one book or genre to another is all it takes.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • To an extent, I believe it depends on the story you are trying to tell. Hopefully, when you are starting out, you know if you have a single story or a larger arc that will require more books. Another variable is what your publisher wants from you. Even if you are writing a series, I believe you owe it to the reader to give them a complete story within each book and not leave them hanging. Most readers understand the serialized approach, having grown up with television. It gives you the benefit of pulling them into your world and hopefully getting them to come back for the next book. If it’s stand-alone, they may be interested in your future works, but aren’t as invested.
  • Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
    • Not in interactions with me. However, I have dreamed about “their” story and what should happen next as if I were one of the characters. I attribute it to my brain working out the story while I sleep. Even if I don’t always remember the details, I often find that issues or challenges work themselves out if I sleep on it.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • Keep writing. Don’t try to get it “right” or “perfect,” as you go just get it all down and then come back later to fix. It’s much easier to revise and tweak a book once you’ve got words down. It doesn’t matter how much you end up throwing away or deleting, you’ll still find yourself moving forward, and none of it was wasted. The words you didn’t like will often inspire better ones to replace them.
  • What’s next for you?
    • Lots more books. In addition to the sequel to Salvage Rat, several co-authored works are coming: the second in the Iron & Blood: Jake Desmet Adventures as well as a new urban paranormal fantasy series – the Joe Mack Cauldron books – based on the legend of Joe Magarac.
