Make Believe anthology (part six) : an interview with Kelly Said

The cover:

Pretty right?

The author:

Kelly loves life in the foothills of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. When she’s not reading, being doted on by Mr. S, or pressed for attention by the wet nose of her beefy bull terrier, she can be found huddled over her little laptop writing whatever catches her fancy — mostly Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror stories for Young Adults.

Kelly Said will now take your questions …

Hi Julie! Thank you so much for inviting me to appear on your blog, I’m so excited to be here! 😀

Q. Great to have you. Tell us about your story!

PETRIFIED is about how a mysterious storm has replaced summer with winter, devastating crops and smothering Castle lands in snow. Prince Sterling August stands alone as a leader, lost in personal grief as well as a desire to help his people, but with an inability to do either. The answers he needs await him, but without Lochlyn, a woman who’s just as isolated as Sterling, he’ll never see what stands before him, cloaked in illusion.

Q. How did you come up with the idea?

The cover for Make Believe was the prompt for each story, so I studied the image very carefully and just let my mind wander to all the possible reasons why a girl would be out in the middle of a snow coated field. I figured she had some deep connection to nature, to be able to withstand the cold wearing only a cape over her bare arms. Then, once I figured out who lived in that “castle” in the background, the rest of the story just unfolded, leaving my fingers to keep up typing with the speed of my thoughts, hehe! 🙂

Q. What’s your main character’s greatest strength, biggest flaw?

I think Sterling’s greatest strength is his loyalty to friends and family and his biggest flaw is that he probably overthinks things (like me, shh! hehe!)

Q. What is the hardest part of writing for you?

The hardest part of writing for me is getting past the first draft phase, allowing myself to suck for sake of getting the story out, hehe!
Q. What one question do you wish an interviewer would ask you but never has?

Whew! I’m not sure about this one, I’ve been asked so many great questions, things I never thought to ponder on before.

Q. What are you working on now? Do you tend to work on multiple projects or one at a time?

I’m working on revisions for my 2012 National Novel Writing Month novel, as well as writing a short story with a deadline for submission in March — however, I’d like to get that subbed earlier than the deadline, just so I can find out a “yes or no” sooner rather than later, hehe! 🙂

Q. What is your favorite line from this book (short story)?

Holding tight to her satchel and Tash, Lochlyn stepped through the portal, into the bitter winds of strange winter, with only the the memory of summer’s warmth on her back.

Q. Did you always want to be a writer?

I’ve always been a writer, but not one who necessarily shared her stories, hehe! Not until I got older did I find the bravery to actually put myself out there and let someone read what I wrote. It takes a lot of courage to be willing to subject yourself to rejection and criticism, but the readers who enjoy what I write make it so worthwhile. 🙂

Q. Was there any part that you struggled with or avoided writing?

The scenes with Estes and Lochlyn were especially difficult to write, I had just lost my precious little pookie dog and was dealing with trying to write a final farewell scene, and, well, it was just super emotionally sad to for me to sit and write it.

Q. What are you reading right now? Do you read a book at a time or more than one?

I do read more than one book at a time, usually in different genres. Currently I’m wrapping up a beta read on a fantastic YA Dystopian novel, I just finished reading YA contemporary novella, TWIN SENSE by Lydia Sharp, and I’m looking forward to diving in to THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray and PAPER VALENTINE by Brenna Yovanoff.

Q. What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Any hobbies?

I like to draw (my bachelor’s degree is in drawing 😉 ), I also knit and crochet and do my best to make my husband laugh with daily shenanigans, hehe!
Q. What was your favorite book/who was your favorite writer as a teen?

My favorite book as a teen was THE OUTSIDERS by S.E. Hinton.

Q. Who is your favorite writer now?

omgosh, picking a favorite author now is an absolute impossibility! I love all the books! hehehe! 🙂
Q, What is the best young adult book you’ve read so far in 2012?

Shadow and Bone by L. Bardugo took me pleasantly by surprise, I checked it out from the library and am wanting to buy it for my shelf now. 🙂
Q. What do you see emerging as the next big trend in young adult literature?

Seeing as I’m still wearing shoes from high school, I’m probably the worst person to ask about trends of any sort. I hope that good writing and good storytelling stay trendy forever.
Q. Have you ever wanted to quit writing? Why? What made you keep going?

I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to quit writing, I mean, I’m too excited by the prospect of seeing something that was once just a thought in my head become real, that’s what keeps me coming back to my characters and their worlds, every day.

Q. If you could have a career besides being an author, what would it be?

I think being a racehorse jockey would be cool, I definitely have the height advantage for it, hehe! 🙂

Thank you again for being such a wonderful hostess, I can’t wait to see what YOU are working on next! 😀

Aw, thanks Kelly. We have so much in common. We both love to write and draw, and the books on your list to read are on mine, too. How cool is that?

Want more? You got it …

Flopping around like a fish: guest post from Jennifer M. Eaton

Flopping around like a fish (AKA Switching up the Genres)

I’m a young adult author.  Well, that’s not true.  I’m a middle aged woman, but I WRITE Young adult books.  This puzzles a lot of people.  “Really?” they say, “What have you gotten published?”

So I rattle off my three pub credits to date:  Last Winter Red, A Dystopian from the Make Believe Anthology; Connect the Dots, a Contemporary Romance from the For the Love of Christmas Anthology; and Jack and Jill Volume One, Sweet Romance.

“But those aren’t young adult.”

Yeah, I know.

That sort of happened by accident.  I wrote and submitted “adult” works for two separate anthologies, and ended up getting published in both, and Jack and Jill is a sequel that will probably have 6 little brothers and sisters.  J

So, what do I like more?  YA or Adult?

I prefer young adult – by a mile.  Adult characters are just not… well… fun.  Do you know what I mean?

Adults have lives and responsibilities… they just can’t go running into the woods chasing deer.  They might get hurt and then they couldn’t work.  They can’t make a silly decision because they have to be “grown up.”  Ugh!  Grown- ups are so frustrating to write!!!

I’d much rather deal with a middle-grade or teen character… someone who is fresh, developing, and does not have the weight of the world on their shoulders.  The opportunities for an author with a younger character are limitless… where adults you need to have at least a “little” maturity to make them realistic.

After dwelling in the adult world for a while, I’ve found my teen characters both lively and refreshing, but I still love the quirky romantic entanglement I’ve woven for Jack and Jill!

Diversity.

For me, I think it makes a better author.

What do you think?

Jennifer Eaton lives on the East Coast USA with her husband, three boys, and a pepped up poodle.  She hosts an interactive website www.jennifermeaton.com aimed at making all writers the best they can be.

Jack and Jill Volume One:  Jill stumbles back into the dating world after twelve years of motherhood.  But things have changed a lot since the last time she dated.  Jack and Jill stories follow the challenges of a woman holding on to traditional values in a world that has evolved without her. Now that she has found the man of her dreams, will Jill be able to hold on to him without compromising what she believes in?

L.S. Murphy’s REAPER swag giveaway and review:

The cover:

Reaper

About the book:

There’s no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.

She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.

It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.

Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.

Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.

Maybe … just maybe … that’s okay.

It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.

Sounds awesome, right?

Now something about the author:

L.S. Murphy lives in the Greater St. Louis area where she watches Cardinals baseball, reads every book she can find, and weaves tales for teens and adults. When not doing all of the above, she tends to The Bean (aka her daughter), her husband and a  menagerie of pets.

She is a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the St. Louis Writer’s Guild.

https://julieareece.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

Want more? Of course you do. Here an excerpt from her book …

Excerpt

A spitball stops in mid-air less than an inch from my nose.
It hangs there. I assume everyone else notices the wet wad of paper too, but when I turn to my bestie Jordan, her mouth is stuck open with her eyes half closed.
She was just laughing. Now she’s … frozen?
The sudden silence is louder than a room full of gossiping teenagers.
Mini-quakes creep up my spine like a centipede hurrying toward my hair.
I’m not entirely sure my heart is beating. I wave my shaking hand in front of Jordan, hoping this will break her free of whatever happened.
No reaction.
Why am I moving?
So many times, I wished Jordan would stop talking. Now is the one time I need her high-pitched voice to pierce my ears.
Quin, relax. It’s okay. No way this is real. I pinch my arm hard, but it doesn’t change anything.
A loud pop makes me spin around in my seat. A man stands in front of the chalkboard in a bluish-white robe staring at me through blizzard white eyes. He holds a staff in front of him that looks like melting glass.
“Hello, Quincy,” he says in a deep velvet voice. “How would you like to see your future?”
I stand and stumble toward the back of the room. “Who are you supposed to be? Gandalf?” I’m unable to keep the tremor out of my voice.
“One person dresses up like me in a movie, and that’s all I hear.” He leans back on Mr. Spragg’s desk. “I’m far more attractive than him and so much more fun.” He winks and lifts his robe, revealing a pair of yellow and red striped Bermuda shorts and orange flip-flops.
My eyes pop wider at the mismatched mess, but I keep my thoughts about his sense of fashion to myself. “Who are you?”
His sigh echoes off the walls. “I’m Destiny.”
“Who?”
Rolling his eyes, he raises the staff high to his left. Like a swordsman, he stabs and swooshes it down in an arch. The air ripples as a dark slit opens. A man in a deep brown pinstripe suit steps through. His cheap sneakers don’t match the formality of the tan fedora and horn-rimmed glasses.
A pony-sized white German shepherd saunters in behind him, and I take an automatic step back. The dog turns his head, black orbs where its eyes should be.
Pinstripe man glances my way before turning toward the person who calls himself Destiny. His features contort and a maroon tint creeps over his face.
“What the f—”
Destiny flips his finger and the new guy shuts up. After a moment, he does another finger move.
“We said when she was eighteen, Des.”
“I’m aware of that, Forsyth.”
“She’s not eighteen.”
“Really? I never would have guessed.” Sarcasm fills each word as Destiny raises his eyebrows like a flag on the Fourth of July.
Forsyth glares. “Then why am I here?”
“I let you pick the date, but I never agreed to honor it.” Destiny pats the dog on the head with sneer and wipes his hands on his robe. “Now is the time. Teach her.”

Book Trailer:

My review:

I really loved the premise of this story. Sixteen year old Quincy Amarante is in her sophomore year when she learns she’s to become the next Reaper—Reaper as in sickle and hooded cloak. Yes. That doesn’t sit too well with her self-absorbed, spoiled agenda to rein queen bee (along with her other shallow friends) over her high school body. (No, you won’t like her at first, but you’re not supposed too.)

L. S. Murphy uses the idea of death and responsibility to force her heroine to think about life a little differently, and over time, to make some changes. Like how she relates to her former best friend Ben Moorland. In my opinion, by far the most intriguing part of the entire book and worth the read just to experience him! My biggest issue was being defensive for Ben because he’s so hot and wonderful and sexy, I couldn’t understand what he saw in Quincy. But they were friends a long time ago, before she turned into a snob, and his actions proved he was looking for the girl he once knew, the one buried beneath her designer clothes and make up. He thought she was worth fighting for, worth waiting for, so I gave her another chance. I do whatever Ben tells me to do. He’s that great.

The end of the story is the best part, and the most frustrating. Murphy doesn’t take the easy way out, and I give her big kudos on that score. I loved and hated and moaned and swooned over the way the story winds up. Clear it up any for you? Awesome.

My nitpicks are that I wanted a bit more from the world building. I wanted Quincy’s redemption to come sooner, and I wanted the secondary characters fleshed out a bit more. None of that would keep me from reading this book again. I recommend Reaper to any urban fantasy lover. It’s different, well written, fun, sad, surprising, and despite those few lesser developed points, I really enjoyed it.

Do you scare easily? Shrapnel guest post with Stephanie Lawton

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the cover:

Shrapnel

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16099871-shrapnel

The blurb:

It’s been six years since Dylanie and her family visited a Civil War site and the place came alive with cannon fire. Problem was, no one could hear it but her.

Now she’s sixteen, her dad’s moved out, her mom’s come out of the closet and Dylan’s got a spot on Paranormal Teen, a reality TV show filming at historic Oakleigh Mansion. She’ll spend a weekend with two other psychic teens—Jake and Ashley—learning how to control her abilities.

None of them realized how much their emotional baggage would put them at the mercy of Oakleigh’s resident spirits, or that they’d find themselves pawns in the 150-year-old battle for the South’s legendary Confederate gold. Each must conquer their personal ghosts to face down Jackson, a seductive spirit who will do anything to protect the gold’s current location and avenge a heinous attack that destroyed his family.

Now that I have your attention, I give you, the lovely, Stephanie Lawton

First, my sincere thanks to Julie for hosting me today on her blog. I was an early fan of Crux, and I know we both love books with paranormal elements, so I’m glad I get to share a bit of my latest, Shrapnel, with you in an excerpt below.

It’s a weird mutt of a novel that also contains soft horror, historical fiction and a great ghost story. The bit below is told from Dylanie’s point of view. She and Jake are at a weekend retreat for teen psychics, but have decided to do a little investigating outside on their own. Both have just experienced some crazy, life-changing events, and here, they get into a little of a philosophical discussion. Jake speaks first.

***

 Excerpt

“So …” He kicks an acorn across the sidewalk. “What do you think happens when we die?”

I go slack and tilt my head. “Really? You’re asking me now? You wanna know the meaning of life, too?”

He stares after the acorn he just assaulted. “I know, it’s just, this weekend has gotten me thinking. I mean, Ashley’s freaking about her brother, and Ethan is dead but he’s still in this house. And the whole church thing she brought up. I don’t have that much experience with actual ghosts, so … it’s a bit much.”

I ignore him and circle the tree a couple times, gazing up into its shadowy branches. A quick movement to my left catches my eye. A shape flies out of the dark and straight at my face.

“Shit!”

Jake doubles over in laughter. “Watch out for those killer squirrels, Dylan. God’s punishing you for ignoring my question.”

I point right at his nose. “And that right there is why I don’t want to talk about it.”

“God’s army of killer squirrels?”

“Ha-ha.”

Jake’s doing that squinty thing people do when they want to ask a serious question but don’t want to be all heavy. “You think he punishes people?”

“I know it.”

“Want to explain?”

“Nope.” I am not having this conversation. The memories start poking their way to the surface.

“C’mon, you can’t leave me hanging like that. Does it have to do with the cross shape branded on your thigh?”

Anger. It whips through me faster than I can think, scorching my nerves and setting my scar on fire. “Just shut up, okay?”

“Easy, Dylan. You want to talk about it? Is it, like, some weird cult initiation or something? You a closet Jesus freak?”

“You think I did this to myself?” I rub my thumb over my thigh. The memory of that day makes me tremble.

Jake’s eyes widen. “You’re terrified. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you. I just thought—”

“What? You’d pry into my business? Make the freak talk?”

“Dylan—”

“Fine. You want to know? I was in the bathroom at school. Four girls came in. They dragged me into the handicapped stall, pinned me to the floor and pulled down my pants. One took off her cross necklace and heated it with a lighter. Then she pressed it into my leg while her friends sat on my arms and legs and laughed. Now I have a scar. Happy?”

“God, Dylan.”

“Exactly. God. He and I aren’t on such great terms.”

“They did that because you see spirits?”

“That’s one reason.”

“There’s more?”

He has no idea. And if I can help it, he never will.

About the author:

http://stephanielawton.com/

After collecting a couple English degrees in the Midwest, Stephanie Lawton suddenly awoke in the deepest reaches of the Deep South. Culture shock inspired her to write about Mobile, Alabama, her adopted city, and all the ways Southern culture, history and attitudes seduce the unsuspecting.

A lover of all things gothic, she can often be spotted photographing old cemeteries, historic buildings and, ironically, the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast. She also has a tendency to psychoanalyze people, which comes in handy when creating character profiles.

She has a love/hate relationship with Mardi Gras and can sneeze 18 times in a row.

Thanks for taking over my blog today, Stephanie. Awesome having you here, as always. Your stories rock!

I’ve read this book people, and trust me, you want to, too! So good!


Dude, how cool are the IPPY’s?

Wow!

Wait … breathe …

You all have been so wonderfully supportive, I have to share this with you!!!

Okay, so I get home from work, open my laptop and read an email sent from my editor at J Taylor Publishing.

‘We want to let you know that Crux was selected as our book to submit to the Independent Book Publisher (IPPY) Award for 2013. It’s heading out into the mail now, to represent our company and you and the book itself as a whole for the national award.’

I’m pretty sure my chin dropped in one of those unattractive, slack jawed moves where you’re thankful no one was watching. Yeah.

Then the smiling started.

Now you may be asking yourself, what the heck is an IPPY? It’s okay, I asked that, too. I have no pride about being a newbe. We’ll learn together.

The “IPPY” Awards were conceived as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the independent publishing industry, and are open to authors and publishers worldwide who produce books written in English and intended for the North American market. We define “independent” as 1) independently owned and operated; 2) operated by a foundation or university; or 3) long-time independents that became incorporated but operate autonomously and publish fewer than 50 titles a year.

Thank you Google. 🙂 <<< Note: I’m still smiling.

There is no monetary prize, but is recognition at an annual banquet and labels and “gold stars” for the book, cover and press.

How freaking cool is that? How freakin’ cool is it I’m nominated? I am so honored and humbled and excited it’s not even funny!

Here are the IPPY Gold, Silver and Bronze Young Adult Fiction Winners from last year:

In Trouble (Carolrhoda Lab)Anteater-BoyKing of Angels, A Novel About the Genesis of Identity and Belief

Man! Would I ever LOVE to see Crux in the 2013 line up of winners. I have to be honest though, the fact that my publisher nominated my book at all makes me feel like I’ve already won. It’s nice to know they believe in the story so strongly. >>>  🙂  <<<< makes me do a lot of stupid smiling.

If you’re curious you can see all of category winners here: http://astore.amazon.com/independpublis2012-20?node=4&page=4

And check out the contest itself here: www.independentpublisher.com/ipland/IPAwards.php

If you haven’t heard of my debut book, here’s the skinny on that, too.

Crux

http://www.jtaylorpublishing.com/books/13

She should have run. Now, she’ll have to fight. Eighteen year old Birdie may be homeless, but she’s surviving, that is until a mysterious guy throws money in the air like a crazy game show host and she grabs some with the idea she’ll be able to buy dinner that night. In that singular moment, unassuming Birdie becomes the girl in everyone’s viewfinder. Thugs want to kill her. Money-guy wants to recruit her. The very hot, very rich and very out of her league Grey Mathews wants to save her. Birdie, though, wants nothing to do with any of them until she realizes fate didn’t bring them all together. Her heritage did. Now, with only twenty-one days left, she’s got to decide whether to follow in the footsteps of those before her or risk her life for people she’s only just met.

I just want to thank the folks at J Taylor Publishing again for taking a chance on me in the first place, for all their help and support, and for the nomination. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for the opportunity. And I’m sending out a HUGE thanks and (((cyber hugs))) to my writing buddies, readers and fans for all of your crazy encouragement and support. You really are the best of the best!

Back of the Book:

If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.
