Website Under Construction

September 10th, 2013 by Angel

I took time off during my mat leave. Now, it’s time for a new look. (Because seriously, these WordPress templates are ugly and plain . . .and did I mention tacky?)

 

I am super excited to announce I have hired Tara Green from Author Web Designs by Tara who has worked with a number of best selling authors in the industry.

 

It’s going to take a couple months to apply the changes (beginning of December)….and then, get ready for some GIVEAWAYS and a whole lot more!

 

I will be looking for people who’d like to submit guest posts (fantasy or book marketing related) and later some beta-readers who are in love with the YA fantasy genre.

 

Get ready. The fun is about to begin!

 

 

A Cookbook That Will Help Beat Cancer!

February 21st, 2013 by Angel

For the second year in the row, my lovely sister Candace is the captain of her Relay for Life team, the Biohazard Babes, at Victoria Hospital. Last year, the team of Paediatric Oncology Nurses raised over $10 000 for the hospital. Quite a feat, seeming as their original goal was $3000 and the team does not have the added advantage of a sponsor! (The hospital can’t sponsor itself.) This year, Candace and her teammates are getting an early start and have created a cookbook to help raise money for her team.

 

The cookbook is a collection of over 300 of the most scrumptious recipes from the hospital staff, friends and families. It is $15 and is now available. All the proceeds go toward the cancer program (LRCP) at the London hospitals. It makes a great gift and a wonderful Mother’s Day present!

 

WHAT RELAY IS ALL ABOUT

 

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. Relays are overnight events where teams walk, run, or wheel around a track. We Relay to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

 

WHO ARE THE BIOHAZARD BABES?

 

“We are Paediatric Oncology Nurses at the Children’s Hospital of London Health Science Centre. On a daily basis we assist our patients and their families as they make their journey from diagnosis to treatment and, in many cases, beat cancer. Unfortunately, the journey is not that easy for all, some may run into complications related to treatment, or lose their battle altogether. We strongly believe that although all of our fighters are strong, they can’t do it alone!”

 

Candace needs an army of family and friends to help her team raise money for cancer research. She is even looking for people to sell copies from their home or desk at work. Will you forward this message? Facebook it? Will you blog it? Will you help us spread the word? If so, we can help fight cancer and help those who are currently battling it. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

 

We’re asking for your help and support.

 

“Give a gift that means something. Give the gift of hope.

 

Forward this message. Buy a book. Change a life.

Our Little Angel is About to Arrive!

July 3rd, 2012 by Angel

 

We don’t know if it’s a boy or girl. Like it or not, it’s going to be a surprise. For all three ultrasounds, the baby has either had its knees up or had them clamped together. It is determined to keep the gender a secret!! Slade is determined it’s a boy but only because he HAS to have a boy first. There has to be the older brother to protect the next one. Well, the cards are laid out and only time will tell. I think it will be a boy, only because I want a girl first.

 

 

And this baby is FEISTY! Even during the first ultrasound, the tech had a hard time getting a good view because the baby was so squirmy. Since then, nothing has changed. It kicks and pokes like you wouldn’t believe. The cute little kicks I had during the second trimester were quickly replaced with “HOLY CRAP!” Jabs and body checks! With moves and aggression like this, it can’t be a girl…not my little angel…

 

 

 

I’m due July 12th so we’ll see what kind of surprise this baby has in store for us. I will be taking the summer off writing and, mostly likely, blogging. (I have to be realistic here.) I’m not certain how long it will be before the baby and I will be able to negotiate some kind of routine.

 

Right now, I’m working like crazy to get all the baby stuff organized while working on the next two books in the Legacies of Talimura fantasy series. I figure, the more I can get done before the baby comes, the easier it will be once our little angel enters the world kicking and screaming. (Because, of course, that’s the only way to go. My mom says when I was born, I screamed the loudest to let all the doctors and nurses know that I was here.)

 

The above pic was taken at 19 1/2 weeks, the last we’ve seen of our angel. I will be sure to post a picture of the baby in the coming weeks so you can see our little miracle. Any last minute advice or stories about labor or the first few months with the baby is GREATLY appreciated! This is our first so this is all new to us!

Releasing the Fear that Accompanies the Nightmare

June 23rd, 2012 by Angel

Haunting dreams are not easily forgotten especially when they reveal our darkest fears. Nor should they. Nightmares are messengers, the subconscious’ way of getting your attention. Today, Nely Cab shares one of her nightmares and the paranormal romance that has readers on edge as seventeen-year-old Isis Martin dares to confront her fears. As an added bonus, she also has a fantastic giveaway lined up!

 

Here is the book readers are swooning over . . . Creatura . . .

 

When seventeen year-old Isis Martin is having trouble sleeping due to perturbing dreams of a horrific growling beast, she decides to confront her fear. But what Isis discovers is something other than a menacing entity.

 

The human-like creature offers Isis assurance that he is not a figment of her imagination. Unwilling to accept his avowal, Isis sets his words to contest by asking the entity to prove himself – a dare, he readily welcomes.

 

It is in her dreams that Isis innocently stumbles upon the silent existence of the divine lineage of those that man has long forgotten.

 

In a quaint town, deep in south Texas, this story leads Isis onto the path of impermissible love and captivating life-changing truths. Isis Martin’s journey is sure to leave any reader ravenous for more.

 

And the author behind it all. I give you . . . Nely Cab . . .

 

Thanks for allowing me be a guest on your blog, Angel, and thanks to the readers that have taken the time to visit Angel Haze’s blog.

Today’s post will be a bit …unusual. My post deals with dreams. Fairy tales and life goals are made of these. But what about the dreams that come in your sleep? Not all of them are pleasant. I’m sure most of you have some recurring nightmare.

 

In “Creatura,” the main character, Isis, suffers from nightmares, which is how her story begins. I haven’t had a recurring nightmare in some time, but I can easily recall having a nightmare or two in the past few weeks that I’d like to recount because it is one of the oddest dreams I’ve ever had:

 

I lie in bed on my stomach, my head tucked under the pillows, and wake up. Am I really awake? No. I’m still asleep, but I’m conscious of the position I’m lying in on my bed. I try to move, but I can’t.

 

Some unknown force is pinning me to the mattress, my arms immobile at my sides. I feel someone place their hands on each side of my rib cage. Those hands run a few inches up my sides. Oh, the pain! The pain their touch produces on my skin is agonizing, and yet, I know that their hands are not applying enough pressure to cause such tremendous suffering. Who is the person touching me?

 

Why can’t I move?

 

“Bow to me,” A male voice says.

 

I’m surprised to hear these words, if any words at all. Why am I paralyzed? I want to turn around and see this person, but I can’t. I’m his prisoner. All I can do is defend myself with words.

 

“No,” I say. “I only bow to my God.”

 

He scoffs, “You know nothing!” He moves his hands down my sides, inflicting that torture again. Oh, the pain! The bone crushing pain!

 

“Stop!” My eyes are shut tight, enduring his touch.

 

“Bow to me, now,” he asks of me once again.

 

Conscious of my thoughts in my unconscious state, I repeat my answer with haste, “I only bow to my God.”

 

Just as quick as I answer, he is quick to ask, “And what God is that?”

 

To him, I reply, “The only God I know.”

 

With a maniacal laugh, and then annoyed he dares reprimand me, “You know nothing!”

 

I suck in a breath of air as I feel his finger run down the crevice of my spine. Oh, the pain, the burning pain!

 

“I know enough to know that you are nothing.” My anger has risen and I am not afraid. I am angry that I am I being touched by someone that I cannot see…tortured by something that is not real.

 

There’s a short pause followed by a statement that sounds more like a threat. “You should be more careful with your words.”

 

As I feel his finger coursing along the length of my arm, I say the magic words that break me of his spell, “God, help me.”

 

I am once again free. I can move. Am I awake? Yes. At what point did I open my eyes? I don’t remember. Wait. Yes, I do… They’ve been open all along.

 

Sweet Dreams!

Nely Cab lives in south Texas with her husband and son. Aside from writing, she enjoys drawing and painting. The tree illustration depicted on the cover of her up and coming book, Creatura, is a sample of her artwork.

Horror at Penn State Influences Michael Meeske to Publish Book

June 18th, 2012 by Angel

Inspiration comes from many sources, but it’s not always the success stories that drive us forward.  Murder, addiction, sexual abuse –all the things that society labels as taboo can light the flame and push a person to take a stand. The horror that befell Penn State University inspired Michael Meeske to take his controversial topic and fling it out into the public. Today, he joins us to explain the truth behind the story. As a treat, he’s also included a giveaway for his controversial novel, Poe’s Mother.

 

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE STORY

 

About 1997, I began my work on Poe’s Mother. It’s a novel told from the viewpoint of two female characters – one a slimly educated 15-year-old in a small town in the dry, hot Southwest, the other an older matriarch of a demented family called Poe. Over many years, the book was placed in workshop, critiqued, revised and revised yet again.

 

I explore many themes in the book, including isolation, decay, the power of words, addiction and sexual abuse. Poe’s Mother is not pornographic, nor is it prurient. (Some might say so based on the topic itself.) After much work and years of rejections by traditional publishers (some with nice things to say about the novel), I finally realized that this book might be too controversial for the marketers of traditional publishing. It took me a while to get this through my head. But it was a news story of late 2011 that convinced me the novel needed a life of its own despite what New York might think.

 

The old saw that truth is stranger than fiction was aptly demonstrated when Penn State football became embroiled in scandal last fall. Allegations of child sexual abuse brought down a revered coach – an icon of college athletics – the university President and several other lesser officials during a time of turmoil and tears. Joe Paterno, the long-time leader of the Nittany Lions, died a short time later. A tragic case all the way around.

 

But lost, some say, in all this  news hoopla were the victims. The scenes brought to light in the media were horrific in any sense of the word. The story still isn’t over and neither is the fallout. Through a long and painful process of incrimination and trial the truth will come out, at least that’s the assumption.

 

But what do these terrible events have to do with fiction? Well, for my part, it enforces my feeling that our writing must be true to our art. The most important pact a writer keeps with a reader is trust – not a word to be taken lightly. The writer must deliver an honest product that fulfills readers’ demands. Readers can smell the stench of a phony when they open the book.

 

Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not comparing the tragedy at Penn State to the worlds we create as writers – in horror, or in any genre for that matter. The victim list at Happy Valley is long and all too real. But, as writers, we deal in conflict and the sometimes ugly events that precipitate such fiction: separation, divorce, murder, rape, sexual abuse and incest. Our society has marked certain subjects as taboo. Could this societal denial have led to the brushing under the carpet, the refusal to take the investigation further apparently witnessed at Penn State?

 

The Penn State tragedy convinced me that Poe’s Mother should not just sit in a box as it had for all those years. The truth should come out. I did not want any taboo to play into my perception of what should be published, or to contribute to the continued silence of my novel. Poe’s Mother deserved a chance, especially after the horror at Penn State.

 

1975. A 15-year-old young woman. A small, dusty town. A family that worships the great American author Edgar Allan Poe, and carries his surname.

 

Poe’s Mother is a startling new novel of dark family secrets, the lure of the supernatural, the claustrophobic isolation of a dying town and a cautionary tale of the power of words.

 

This is the story of Sissy Baxter and her strange relationship with Edgar and Madeline Poe – two people who claim they love her. What Sissy discovers will change her life forever, and love will never be the same.

 

Visit Amazon or watch the trailer for more info.

 

Michael Meeske writes across genres, including romance, mystery, suspense, horror and gothic fiction, a genre that blends horror and romance, and has its roots in some of the earliest novels ever written. Poe’s Mother is his latest release available exclusively on Amazon. com.

 

From 2008 to 2010, he served as Vice President of Florida Romance Writers (FRW). He has been a member of FRW and the Romance Writers of America since 2002. He also was an active member of the Writers’ Room of Boston, a non-profit working space for novelists, poets and playwrights.

 

Michael’s writing credits include Frankenstein’s Daemon, a sequel to Frankenstein, offered through Usher Books. He also is the co-author of His Weekend Proposal, a tender category romance published in August 2009 by The Wild Rose Press under the pen name of Alexa Grayson (soon to be published in Greece); Zombieville, a short story included in a 2011 anthology by FRW writers, available at Amazon.com, and Tears, a short-story published in the Fall 2000 issue of Space & Time, a magazine of fantasy and science fiction. Usher Books will publish additional works by Michael in 2012 and 2013.

 

Some of his influences are Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Oscar Wilde, Daphne du Maurier, Richard Matheson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and any work by the exquisite Brontë sisters. You can contact Michael at michaelmeeske@live.com.

News from Dead Mule Swamp: Guest Post and Giveaway

June 9th, 2012 by Angel

Almost everyone has thought of writing a book at one time or another. Inspired by our favorite books and authors, we sit down, pen in hand and just stare at a blank page., thinking , Where do I start? What do I write about? Today, Joan Young joins us with her mystery,  NEWS FROM DEAD MULE SWAMP and shares how she went from Cobbler’s Knob to Dead Mule Swamp.

 

 

Anastasia Raven is running from the pain of a failed marriage, and hopes to hide from the world in an old farmhouse she has purchased at the edge of Dead Mule Swamp. When a hundred-year-old newspaper she finds inside a wall is stolen by Cliff Sorenson, and then Cliff disappears, Ana is convinced that the paper holds the key to the mystery. But what old news could be important enough to put Cliff in danger?

 

From Cobbler’s Knob to Dead Mule Swamp

 

I’ve been in love with mysteries for at least 55 years. I read my way through the two shelves of kid’s mysteries at the school library several times, and started my own collections of Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, Ginny Gordon, and The Hardy Boys.

 

However, my favorite mystery of that time in my life was Cobbler’s Knob by Eleanor M. Jewett. I must have read it ten times. Last year, I bought a copy and was eager to discover if the story held up in my adult estimation. It did. The elements I loved were all there: a mysterious old house on the seacoast that made strange noises and had a secret room; a courageous girl as the hero; someone who needed help, and a surprising but satisfactory ending.

 

I’ve spent a lifetime reading and re-reading mysteries. I like almost all of them, but my favorite authors are Rex Stout, Erle Stanley Gardner, Agatha Christie, Lilian Jackson Braun, Sue Grafton, Rita Mae Brown, and probably others I’m forgetting.

 

The point is, I love mysteries that develop a collection of characters, a fictional world, and present a series of puzzles that need to be solved.

 

I suppose it was inevitable that I would try to write a mystery. However, I had some reservations. The biggest one was simply personal. I didn’t want to spoil my enjoyment of reading mysteries, and I was afraid that if I analyzed them enough to be able to write them, I wouldn’t be able to disappear into the stories. The jury is still out on this question.

 

The next question was, “What kind of mysteries would I write?” As it turned out, there’s now a name for them. They’re called cozies, where the emphasis is on a puzzle rather than gore and violence.

 

Only one issue left, “What kind of hero would I create?” This was tougher. The person had to be someone I could understand and sustain without constant research. Although I like procedural mysteries with lawyers, medical examiners, detectives, etc., I don’t know enough about these non-fiction worlds to write about any of them accurately as an insider.  So, the question became, “What do I know?”

 

I wasn’t happy with the apparent answer, “Not much.” And that answer wasn’t accurate, but it took me a surprisingly long time to find the actual answer. What I know is the northern outdoors, and small towns.

 

One long car trip with a broken CD player gave me plenty of time to think up Anastasia Raven and her situation which brought her to Forest County and the edge of Dead Mule Swamp. By the end of that same drive I had thought up basic plots for two books.

 

It will be up to readers, of course, to decide if Ana is intriguing enough to keep their interest. Meanwhile, I’m having fun dreaming up stories to tell.

 

 

 

Thank you for joining us Joan!

Joan H. Young has been writing stories about the outdoors since the age of 7, when “The Adventures of Skippy the Field Mouse” made its debut. The work survives, but is best left in the box with crayon drawings of squirrels and pressed leaves.

“The Family Christmas,” a seasonal poem made it as far as the local newspaper when she was 12, proving that the serious child was already harboring an evil sense of humor.

 

As an adult, Joan has made a career of proving that she can bumble through life without ever deciding what to be when she grows up. She began with a degree in Communication Arts with an emphasis on theater. Realizing that drama, for her, was like whiskey to an alcoholic, she left a possible career in stage management for a driven man and 10,000 teenagers. (What was she thinking?) A few years later the couple had legally adopted one of the teens, and two younger children, but were still feeding most of the stray 10,000 teenagers as well. No time there for writing anything except grocery lists, and a journal of the wild ride!

 

In 1986, still longing for a career in sciences, she went back to school, taking higher math and chemistry in hopes of being accepted into the University of Michigan graduate program. From 1992-1995 she lived in Ann Arbor, and did receive a Masters in Environmental Engineering, cleverly getting U of M to pay for it too! Meanwhile, the writing bug still squirmed, and Joan worked hard at collecting rejection slips from a nice series of reputable magazines and publishers. Also during this time slot she began hiking the North Country Trail (NCT), the longest foot path in the United States.

 

Now armed with an “advanced degree” she returned home and attempted to establish a reputation as a wetland specialist. Well, she was one, but she wasn’t very good at marketing herself, and when offered a job as a web site manager, that became the next career. Essays about her hikes on the NCT demanded to be written, and friends urged her to publish.

 

In 2005, /North Country Cache/ made its debut for the 25th Anniversary of the North Country Trail. Since then, more and more of her time has been spent writing. If only more and more money came from that endeavor, it could be called a career!

 

Recently, she has begun writing more fiction, including several award-winning short stories soon to be published by Twin Trinity Media, and the Anastasia Raven mystery series.

 

Young has enjoyed the out-of-doors her entire life. Highlights of her outdoor adventures include Girl Scouting, which provided yearly training in camp skills, the opportunity to engage in a 10-day canoe trip, and numerous short backpacking excursions. She was selected to attend the 1965 Senior Scout Roundup in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, an international event to which 10,000 girls were invited. She has ridden a bicycle from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean in 1986, and on August 3, 2010 became the first woman to complete the North Country National Scenic Trail on foot. Her mileage totaled 4395 miles.

Time for Death: Interview and Giveaway with Christie Silvers

June 5th, 2012 by Angel

Today, we have the pleasure of speaking with Christie Silvers, author of TIME FOR DEATH, her first book in the Liz Baker series. To learn more about her predictions of the future of epublishing and brick and mortar stores, her creative process and a fantastic giveaway, read on!

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Liz Baker thought it would be a normal evening of sex in a cemetery with her beau, until she spotted someone in the distance and all normality in her world ceased to exist. After several murders in her small town, Liz comes to the realization that the murderer is coming after her, and he’s more dangerous than any human could possibly be. With the help of her dead mother, bar bouncer, and cemetery lover, Liz learns that the murdering vampire was sent by her biological father to claim her as his own. Only then does she discover her real parentage and underlying special powers. Only death will release her from Marcus’s powerful hold, but who will die first?

 

 

 

 

How do you feel about all the bookstores starting to close? Do you think that it is just the corporate ones in trouble? Or do you feel that the small/independent ones are in danger too?

 

I find it sad that so many bookstores are being forced to close due to economic difficulties.  I once wanted to own my very own bookstore, but I don’t see that in the near future.  I think it’s hard on larger chains as well as the smaller/independent stores.  More people are shopping online and buying e-books.  All physical bookstores are in danger.  That’s just the way of the world now.

 

Do you think that ebooks have affected bookstores? Or do you think that there are enough people left out there who love to actually have the printed copy to save bookstores?

 

I do think the popularity of e-books has affected bookstores.  Bookstores are having a hard time right now.  They’re having to change the way they do business and the types of books they offer to their patrons.  I think there are enough people out there to save the independent and small bookstores they love.  If only they would do it.

 

Is your writing organic or do you plan it out before you create it?

 

I learn a long time ago that my characters do not like it when I try to plan out their stories.  Anytime I have tried they always run amuck and change everything.  Outlines don’t work with them.  However, I do make notes, write small scenes, keep a list of plot ideas to look at and go over while I’m writing each story.  Some people work better with an outline, but I’m not one of them.

 

How many hours a day would you say that you spend promoting your writing or others writing?

Some days it feels like I’ve spent all day promoting, but in reality I only spend an hour or two.  And not every single day.  I admit that I probably should promote more, but if the choice comes down to writing or promoting, I’m always going to choose writing.  I do stop what I’m doing and share the work of other authors when I’ve become aware of it.  That might take one of my author friends e-mailing me and asking, “Hey, can you share this for me,” but I’m always happy to help.

 

Who does your cover art? Do you design it yourself?

 

My cover designer is the uber-talented Kelly Shorten.  She’s my lifesaver with it comes to cover art.  I might be creative with writing and home DIY stuff, but you can forget about me being able to do visual artwork.  Heck no!  You can find more of Kelly’s work at http://www.facebook.com/kelly.shorten.9

 

Are you on Goodreads? If so, please share your page address and has it helped you reach more fans?

 

I am on Goodreads.  I don’t know if it has really helped me to reach more fans, but I’d like to think so.  http://www.goodreads.com/christiesilvers

 

Do you sell your work in any stores? If so, where?

I don’t know if any stores actually carry my physical books, but I do know that any bookstore can order copies of my books for their patrons.  Just supply them with titles, author name, and ISBNs.

 

How do you build your character world?

 

The world in my Liz Baker series is loosely based on my hometown, making it easy to create her world.  I gave it a fictional name, making it easy for me to change anything in her town without offending locals or having someone tell me, “That’s not the name of that road.”  Other authors use cities they’ve been to, lived in, or just Googled.  These days you can find out all you need to know about any city in the world without ever having to set foot on a plane.  I just drive down the street and scope out the location I want to use in my book.  :)

 

What is your opinion on people who post bad reviews?

 

As a friend of mine said about a recent nasty reviewer, and I’m paraphrasing here, “A bad review last only minutes, but a bad reviewer has to live with their own nastiness forever.”  Bad reviews will happen.  Not everyone will like everything you like, or write.  That’s life.  It’s the ones who make the reviews personal, spiteful, mean, or leave a bad review without saying why they didn’t like the story that really make me want to scream.  You don’t have to like a book, but at least have a better reason for a 1-star rating other than, “It sucks.”  Blech.

 

Christie, thank you for joining us!

Official Book Launch of The Dark Gifts: Inheritance by Willow Cross

April 13th, 2012 by Angel

 

 

Welcome to a world of Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Ghosts and Druid Sorcerers. Enter at your own risk.  You never know what you may find lurking around the corner….

 

Welcome to the world of Willow Cross


 

Cue the band and roll out the red carpet, the virtual release party of Inheritance begins Friday April 13th and ends Saturday April 14th at the Book Release Party Page. There will be tons of games and prizes! You don’t want to miss it!

 

Willow Cross is releasing the second book of The Dark Gifts series. If you haven’t read the first book, fear not! Amazingly enough, this book can also be a stand alone book! I guarantee after reading Inheritance, you’ll be anxious to go back and read the the first book.

 

Birthright was ranked #4  in Paranormal Reads Best Books By Indie Authors 2011.

 

When Sarah and Jason Masada received an old house from an aunt they never knew existed, they were grateful for the blessing.  Until they discovered the curse that came with being part of the Masada family–a full moon.

 

Intent on tracing their lineage, they descend into a world of lies, fear, ancient myths, and death.  Indian hunters have tracked them to the family compound, Jason is wanted for murders he doesn’t remember committing, and their new-found family is on a mission to kill them.  It seems their only hope for survival is to combine forces with two unlikely allies and trek across the globe to the place where it all began.  Maybe there they can find a way to end it.

 

You can find it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

 

 

 

Willow Cross resides in Arkansas with her husband, two children still young enough to live at home, an enormous cat named Bitsy, and a wuss of a dog named Tank.

“Oh my goodness!! Where to start?! Willow has done it again! Not only is her writing style completely addictive, her descriptions of scenes were, again, so intense that I had dreams about this book.” B. Carrigan

 

“Saying that I couldn’t put this remarkable book down, is an understatement. There are so many things I loved about this book – believable lead characters; effortless transitioning from one chapter to the next; and a masterpiece ending – I will definitely be reading “Inheritance” again and again. Willow Cross clearly knows what her readers want; and how to keep them satisfied and begging for more!” Books4Tomorrow
