NEW RELEASE! The Benevolent Light: Book Five of the Aspen Series

RothanCover2updatedAhhh…It is so good to be back. I have admittedly been so stressed about this book being finished, I have done little else!

I appreciate you all for sticking by me, kicking me in the rear from time to time, and making this event possible. I have to send out a special “thanks” to my good friend, Cheryl Alleway, for her positive emails when I needed them the most.

You know, I didn’t really think I would make this deadline. Two weeks ago, I had about a hundred pages to go and I hardly worked on it at all on our trip to Forks, WA. This past Friday I was still shy about sixty pages from where I wanted to be and from where I envisioned the end. Sunday morning, I wrote the remaining last few pages and was able to close the laptop, breathing a deep sigh of accomplishment.

Now, I find myself torn. My head is in Aspen’s world right now and yet I long to work on other projects and postpone the last book of the series, The Key of the Kingdom. I am thinking that I may work on some other ideas for a few months and come back to Thorne and Aspen when I am not so worn out. Six long books with little other work in between is a lot.

So about a book tour… Well, I have given this a lot of thought. I would like to have one, but I felt it a little unfair so deep in the series to expect bloggers to get acquainted with all five books, so I have foregone the tour for now. I have some fun ideas, so just because we aren’t having a blast hopping around the bloggesphere, doesn’t mean that I am discrediting it at all. I am just wanting it to be fun for everyone…including the bloggers who take the time to post about my work.

(If you are a blogger and would like to participate, feel free to let me know.)

So for now, know that I love each of you dearly and appreciate the time you take to read the story that has been working its way out of my head for many years now. To think that it took me nine years just to write the first book alone…that is a long time. I hope you hold as deep a love for my characters as I do!

Darkness shrouds the Darktowers as they press forward, the familiar cliffs in the forefront of their minds as their journey comes close to the end. Rothan sits over his mound of gold, the devil in command of his army with his evil eyes seeing each shadow, every corner, any opportunity with which to gain power, to flaunt the tree upon his palm and take what he covets most. And through the storm that brews, the light fades until the blackness chokes all in its path. A battle of wills dictates which path will be taken and when the torment ends, Aspen finds one brilliant shaft of light. A benevolent light. The most beautiful beam of light one has ever seen.

“I wanted to hear that you had perished…that I was free to keep her here as the symbol of peace and order, of love and light. You are the one flaw in my plan. But one day, one day…you will no longer own her.” ~King Rothan

Don’t worry, links will appear tomorrow, the official first day to have your own copy of The Benevolent Light… September 17th 2013!

Happy reading and God Bless!!

Interview With Cheryl Alleway on Of Blade of Valor!

blog tour button good

The life of a writer can be mysterious. They all have a method to their madness and here is a peek at the lovely Cheryl Alleway’s process. You can see her expressions, the wheels spinning as she reveals some small secrets. It isn’t every day that you can pick an author’s brain.

I feel that the vast majority of readers only see the finished product and not the amount of time spent in creating the book they hold in their hands. Books seem to just magically appear on shelves. This video is to show you the passion of the author, the drive, and the thought process. One simply does not sit down and write a 500 page book overnight.

The next time you hold a book and thumb through the pages, keep in mind that each new book is a struggle for someone just to bring it to you. Countless hours spent in thought, writing and editing so you have a piece of entertainment.

Every author is different. They think different, they write different, they choose different genres. In my mind, there are no rules when writing fiction. It is a free area to put down on paper the story that invades your mind. Just because one writer doesn’t write according to how you think they should, doesn’t make them inadequate…it makes them an individual. I know of some out there perfectly happy to demean another writer for not adhering to an invisible set of rules and I strongly criticize this with all my being.

Cheryl’s book defies many traditional ideals and that is what I find so endearing about it. For me, when someone can spin a tale around actual events and pull you into the story, that is a great read. Technicalities do not appeal to me and I applaud those who are willing to step out of the cookie-cutter mold and do something so intriguing and interesting you can’t help but fall in love with it.

Enjoy this video!

Tomorrow’s post is by the very sweet, quite humble author Cheryl Alleway. Please feel free to share your thoughts with her! 😀

Of Blade and Valor Book Tour!!

blog tour button good

So I must call upon all me fellow bloggers and readers…even authors.

Today is a really special day for a great gal that I have really come to admire. It is her day…the day her book is brought to life. She has walked carefully out on the plank and stared down into the waters swimming with the sharks of the literary world, but seeing her dreams on the ocean floor, jumped right in. This girl has put in countless hours preparing, learning, and writing for all of you.

The problem we face, as writers, the the lack of support from the very people who read books.

So I am asking you all to get involved today. Visit the post that will kick off Cheryl’s tour and participate. Download your copy and be entered to win prizes! We were able to pull a bunch of bloggers together to make this tour a lot of fun for you as readers. Click here for the schedule of stops!

We beg you, yes this is me begging, to share this among your audiences and help to propel this young woman to great heights.

When it is your turn to sit in the spotlight, you know we will be behind you as well! We appreciate your support! Feel free to reblog the Twisted Willow Press post today!

Happy Birthday to me! My eBooks are Free!

So I was born on June 18th, 1973. According to my kids, I am old. According to my body, I am old. According to my mind, I am old. But according to my heart, I am young. I will always be young.

To help me celebrate my big 40, I am putting my eBooks on sale for absolutely nothing and this is only on my birthday.

With the release of The Benevolent Light happening soon, now is the time to catch up on the rest of the Aspen Series.

Beginning at one minute after midnight, well, my time of course, you will be able to take advantage of such a sale. Don’t wait! Being able to break my own records of the most downloads would be such an amazing feeling on a day such as my own birthday. 😀 These downloads will be available on Amazon.com in Kindle books.

I want to thank all of you for following me here. I hit a very cool 100 followers just yesterday. Thank you for reading, thank you for believing in my dreams for me, and thank you for being fans. I think that the greatest experience would be to meet you all in person…spend a few hours just talking. That would be amazing because it is you, my readers and fans, that keep me going. You make me want to keep plucking away at the keyboard, one scene at a time and one chapter on top of another. It is true that I write for myself…but I suppose I also write for acceptance, for entertainment, and for your approval. It makes me most happy.

When I blow out the candles and laugh with my family and friends, I will think of those of you who have read my work and who have raised me to where I am today.

I am forever grateful…

September 17th, 2013! Release Date!

So after much hard work and beating myself up for not making my May deadline (that was the deadline in my mind), I am finally ready to set a date in stone.

September 17th, 2013, The Benevolent Light will be available via Kindle or paperback. I can authorgraph your digital copies or send you signed editions of the paperback!

For those of you interested that may not be caught up with the Aspen Series to date, my birthday is June 18th. Yes, that is Tuesday and I will put my books on sale through Amazon Kindle for the day. So not just “happy birthday to me”, you can score as well! Keep watching for freebie information and pass it along!

As the date gets closer, there will be some fun activities to participate in and possibly learn even more about me in the process.
