Fiction

 

KJAlibrary (2)
 
13542294DEATH WARMED OVER; In the tradition of bestselling fantasy humor writers Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams, “New York Times”-bestselling author Anderson is one of the biggest names in the science fiction genre. Now, he launches a fabulously funny new urban fantasy series starring a zombie detective.
STAKEOUT AT THE VAMPIRE CIRCUS; Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble and his ghost girlfriend are called to the Vampire Circus when 16123061a fortune teller’s cards go missing. Not exactly the glamorous life, but the stakes escalate when a vampire trapeze act goes dead wrong, and Shamble discovers even more skeletons in the closet than the ones that live there. As he shuffles for clues through an unnatural cast of carnies, he faces a slate of suspects that could freak out even the most daring detective—a werewolf lion tamer, a fat lady with an enormous secret, an undead ringmaster…and what could be scarier than a circus clown? The only thing certain is that the show must go on—dead or alive.
UNNATURAL ACTS;  In the Unnatural Quarter, golems slave away in sweatshops, necromancers sell black-market trinkets to 13771833tourists, and the dead rise up–to work the night shift. But zombie detective Dan Shamble is no ordinary working stiff. When a local senator and his goons picket a ghostly production of Shakespeare in the Dark–condemning the troupe’s “unnatural” lifestyles–Dan smells something rotten. And if something smells rotten to a zombie, you’re in serious trouble.
HAIR RAISING;  The fur really flies when a serial scalper stalks the supernatural citizens of the Unnatural Quarter, targeting 15817010werewolves—and what’s sadder than a chrome-domed lycanthrope? Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble is on the case, trying to stop an all-out gang war between full-time and full-moon werewolves. As he combs through the tangled clues to hunt down the bald facts, things get hairy fast.

We will have an even better network of communications and transportation but we will still need to have a vacation and to relax from this antiseptic new environment. People will need an escape and most people dream of the future and the past, because no one romanticizes about their own time.

This week I have an author interview with: BERNADETTE WALSH who has published four novels to date (The House on Prospect droppedImage(Echelon Press) and Gold Coast Wives (Lyrical Press)) and the first two books of her paranormal series, Devil’s Mountain — Book One of the Devlin Legacy and Devil’s Shore — Book Two of the Devlin Legacy. Here is what she had to say;

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?

I was an avid reader as a child and there were sooo many books I loved. The Nancy Drew series and the Anne of Green Gables books were favorites when I was young. As I got older I loved Jane Eyre — I must’ve read it at least twenty times — and don’t get me started on Wuthering Heights.  I think from a young age I was attracted to stories about strong young girls. Now as a writer, I write about strong women.

My parents moved to Florida when I was in my twenties and living in a tiny apartment in Manhattan, so all of my childhood books were thrown out. But I just downloaded all of the Anne of Green Gables books and am looking forward to catching up with these old friends.

 What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?

I read everything it feels like. I probably read more books with female rather than male protagonists. I loved books by women Irish writers. If I could write like anyone it would be the Irish writer Claire Keegan–her short stories are so lyrical they are almost like poetry. I read Gone Girl recently which I enjoyed. I love Tana French, although I usually don’t like crime fiction, but her stories have so much depth I feel they go beyond the genre. I also like the Sookie Stackhouse books for when I need a paranormal fix.

When I’m writing fiction I tend to avoid reading fiction because I find it interferes with my “voice”.  I tend to read kind of nutty non-fiction like How to Spot a Sociopath and books about fundamentalist Morman sects — not that I’m proud of it 🙂

Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?

I remember reading Gone With the Wind in the seventh grade and becoming completely obsessed with it.

Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?

I can’t think of any.

Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?

I write anywhere where I have five minutes to spare. So that means on the Long Island Rail Road, my daughter’s dance class, in the early morning before the family wakes up. I can block out just about any sound, so I don’t need a “special place.”

Do you prefer one genre to another?

Devil_s-Daughter-mockup-1 (2)I prefer to write stories with strong female protagonists. That has led me to write humorous contemporary romances, family sagas and a four book paranormal romance series about a family of Irish witches (The Devlin Legacy books). While I’ve hopped around genres my books are basically about women dealing with whatever life throws at them the best way they can.

  Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?

I’m a complete convert to e-readers and have three!

Can you tell us about what your working on now?

After finishing the fourth book in The Devlin Legacy series, I am taking a break from paranormal. I have started Cold Spring, a The Devlin Witch final 300dpi (2)family saga about an Irish-American family on Long Island–write what you know, right!

Bernadette is also the host of NICE GIRLS READING NAUGHTY BOOKS on blogtalkradio where she discusses romance novels with reader, writers and members of the publishing industry. http://www.blogtalkradio.comDevil_s-Shore-mockup-3 (2)/bernadettewalsh

From a passion to acting to a passion for writing

IMG_0002_NEWI went from a passion to acting to a passion for writing. When I was a child I loved to write, act and dance.  I loved all of it. I put on shows and I would direct the other kids on our block, even though I was always the new kid. I would be passionate. I would write the show and we would all do it for our families. We always did this in the summer and it was either in our back yard or one of the other kids but I always directed and wrote it. I would not star because I would be too busy doing everything else but I would give myself a meaty part. I did that as a teenager as well.  I wrote a play when I was in high school because I was sick of being a spear carrier.  We were able to perform what ever we wanted during lunch in the small theater so I talked three of my friends into being in my play, called A Family Affair. I was the lead in that. It was fun!
Then in religious school we wrote a play talking about how we were going through the stages of our life. We each wrote our own IMG_NEWparts. It was a lot of work but I got a lot of great feed back and I was hooked on acting. Then my passion turned toward acting. I did have some success, I worked on stage a lot. I worked on the tour at Universal Studios. Most important to me was getting parts in TV shows and TV movies. I had an extra role in a Richard Gere movie. I almost always played teenagers. Even when I reached Thirty.  But after I was Thirty-five  I couldn’t get work. I now looked like a young women not a teenager. I still worked on stage but not on TV and that is where I got paid. So I started to send out articles to magazines. I had a little success. I sold a few pieces but not enough to live so I decided to give it up too.
I worked hard in life but I think I was really miserable without any creative outlet. Then something that I had done as college student hit the internet. Fan Fiction. I started to write for it slowly, it was a great, safe place to write and to learn what works and murder incdoesn’t. I also took classes at UCLA to make myself a better writer. Slowly I had a fan base and then I started to work on my first novel. Murder Inc. started as a series of fan fiction stories that I worked on to carve into a novel. IIMG001 (2) am very proud of it. My father who wanted to be a writer was really proud of it too. He would tell everyone he met about my book. He used to pass out flyers with the cover at his work. From this I decided to try to be a writer again. I wrote articles and more fan fiction. I wrote a first draft of a book.  I was passionate about it. Then Dad died. It ripped my heart out, and I stopped again.
My Mom and brother talked me into writing again. I started to write articles again. And I wrote fan fiction but I could not get past dave and mom in sdpic with bookthe first draft of my novel. My brother talked me into trying. So I started to work on the second draft. I re-structured it and I got really into writing my books again. I guess you could say I was re-born as a writer, it’s a tribute to my Dad.

This Week I had a wonderful chat with Roxanne Bland. We talked about writing and books. How things came about that she started writing a piece of fan fiction, but soon abandoned it as her first book, The Underground, developed. TheUndergroundFtCover (2)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 began to re-read the whole series of Harry Potter books.  As I read the first book, I was shocked at how much I had forgotten. I was really stunned at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1how much I had replaced in my mind by the films. So I decided to read the whole series as one story. Here is my review; http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/579121198
