On Tuesday evening I got to stop by one of Kevin J Anderson stops for his national book tour! He was really fun and entertaining. I had already decided to get Unnatural Acts but now I think I want to get two other books as well. He really was a wonderful speaker and he even gave us gifts! I also got to see the prototype of his and Steven Sears graphic Novel Stalag-X, it was so beautiful. I was there with my brother and we thought it was an amazing book. I can’t wait to get that too!

This Tuesday we will have the lovely Roxanne Bland is a writer who is fascinated by words. She started writing by penning a piece of fan fiction, but soon abandoned it as her first book, The Underground, developed. While a paranormal revolution looms on the horizon, Parker, a beleaguered alpha werewolf, is locked in a bitter love triangle with Garrett, his mage ex-lover, and Kurt, his despised vampire overlord. In trying to deal with his predicament, Parker falls for Melera, an amnesic space alien, who may—or may not—be a serial killer. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2013/04/02/chatting-with-sherri

I decided to do this Blog Tour because I am writing my first important piece of Non Fiction which is my own memoir. It is so different from writing fiction. I had to check my diaries, resumes, and pictures to make sure I have it all straight. So I thought since this is all new to me, I decided to give it a bit of a lift. So here I am…
My writer friend, Bette Stevens http://4writersandreaders.com/2013/02/21/the-next-big-thing/ tagged me for this “chain blog.” It’s a little like a chain letter, except that it’s only focus is what authors are working on right now. All I have to do is answer a few questions about by current work-in-progress and invite other authors to do the same. I’ve chosen authors; Mata Raa and Reza Mashayekhi. They’ll be posting their updates next week. Follow along and be the first to get the scoops!

Here is my interview about my new baby;
What is the working title of your next book?
Entering The Second Half.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I was listening to young 30 somethings worry about aging and I was thinking about all I have gone through at my age. I remembered when I was in my thirties and how I never gave thought to plastic surgery and yet that is exactly the reality for young women today. So i started to write it all down and I realized I had a book, my first work of non-fiction.
What genre does your book fall under?
What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
No idea, since it is my life 🙂
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
It is a memoir of the first half of my life, all the interesting people and places I have seen.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
No idea yet.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
A year and a half.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
It is my life story so I don’t think I can compare it with anyone else it is my journey.
What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
I have worked and met some of the most interesting and famous people in the world.
Who or what inspired you to write this book.
Don’t laugh but Kim Kardashian. She was all worried about turning thirty and actually got plastic surgery.I realized that the young are obsessed with not becoming old. I had associates at my office ask me if I had any plastic surgery, I answered that no I never had elective plastic surgery. I did have corrective plastic surgery on my ears when I was 13yrs old to remove to huge cysts on the back of my ears.
It was also because I hit what I felt was a brick wall. For the first time in my life I felt old when I hit fifty. I started to write in my diary what I had accomplished in my first fifty years and I realized I had lived a pretty good and interesting life. So I started to play with an idea of novel. I had to fight with myself because I had always been a fiction girl but I finally decided it might be interesting.
Please stay tuned to my regular writing blog for more on this memoir when I get closer to publishing I will give you a bit more.
