Hearing is Believing!

fantasy Time Inc new CoverIt is an odd thing to listen to someone reading all the parts and bring a story you wrote to life.  Whether it is a book, a play or an original fan fiction story, it is like entering a good part of The Twilight Zone.  It is sort of like an episode where Rod Serling is sitting on the edge of desk, with a glittering smile and on his face, and he is winking at you.  I came to this conclusion a few times as I heard my play A Heavenly Hand, or my original fan fiction story, The Ghost and now listening to my book come to life, Fantasy Time Inc.  I heard most of it yesterday and it is an emotional thing to hear the words you wrote and hear the impact and emotion behind it coming to you through your speakers of you computer. The new edition, (much improved and with an added section) and the audio book will out next month.  I am very excited and I can’t wait till its launched!

Close to the finish line for writing my Memoir

I’m close to the finish line for writing my Memoir. Troubles with proofs and legal issues with memoir are 1907596_943621512345108_8947102205798756801_nmaking the going a bit slow, but the book is due out at the end of next month or the beginning of June.  For those who follow my blog who would like to write a book, it is not an easy task. re-writes even appear when it comes to the proofs toward the end of the process, which I am working on right now.  Also for this book I am using different size pictures of my life and it is a bit harder to fit it into the book then prints the same size.  So it is a bit of roller coaster right now.

On this episode of Chatting With Sherri we welcome S N Weddle to chat about his new book; It Starts With a Kiss! S N Weddle worked as a daytime TV producer for the BBC. For much of his career he produced numerous Kiss cover _Layout 1make-over shows – and this gave him a fascination with questions concerning image, identity, Publicity photos 3beauty and the fashion industry. He remains intrigued by the insecurities that many women (and some men) feel about the way they look – and his first novel, It starts with a Kiss, explores the potential barriers of appearance and age that may prevent a person from following their dreams.

It Starts With A Kiss is a magical, funny, sexy story of glamour and romance, of lost youth and found love.

Welcome to Chatting With Sherri this week will chat with Jeff Crawford about his book; Through Black Velvet Eyes ! Master of bone-chilling suspense novels, Jeff Crawford, may reside in North Carolina yet his novels Pheramane and Through Black Velvet Eyes are set in Ocala where he lived for ten years attending Jeff CrawfordCrawford TwitterVanguard High School and participating in both the Southeastern Youth Fair and 4H activities.Through Black Velvet Eyes is a suspense novel set in modern day Ocala with a plot that mingles the equine world, a man leading a double life, and a slice of paranormal. Pheramane is an eccentric blend of suspense, spiritual and the paranormal set in the mean and murky Florida swamplands of the late 1800s. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2015/04/07/chatting-with-sherri

First I would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe New Year! I hope you all have a brilliant new year and I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you for being a part of my year.

 

First thing that was amazing was my book that I created with my best friend Anja Gruber.  Different Is Beautiful was a labor of love and passion.  It came from a deep need to help bring love and acceptance to children in a sweet and colorful way.  We were very proud to be nominated for the Global E-book Award.  I also love the new calendar that was created for the book, it will be cool to share the picture of the book with my new year.

Next was Sherri’s Playhouse, I was so happy to bring the talents of wonderful playwrights to a new audience.  Not only did I get to see my own play shine but others too.  It is a joy to watch new work blossom.

Then with much excitement I got to create and led a panel at Comic Con.  It was my first time at Comic Con. My first time creating a panel.  And my first time leading a panel.  To say I was nervous would be an understatement but it was a great success.  I also got to enjoy my first Comic Con which was a joy.  Thank you to my panel and the wonderful audience that was much larger than I expected.

And to finish the year I had a very successful Blog Book Fair.  It was my third one and it was bigger and better than the last two.  I would like to thank all the authors and readers who took part.  I am very grateful to you.

 

I would also like to thank my followers on Chatting With Sherri, and all the people who bought my books.  You are such great people. Thank you.

Finally I would like to thank all my friends and family for being part of my life, for supporting me and loving me.

 

Thank you all!

Well, The Year Is Winding Down, Huh?

Lets just say it’s been a busy year 🙂  I have been working very hard and I am cutting back for the next couple of schrift-3.-red10409783_803245753049352_3893712058043773424_nweeks. So last weeks Chatting With Sherri is the last episode for this year, don’t worry though we will be back on Jan 6th with new and fun chats!  Next week’s blog will be more reflective of the year but since I have my book fair, Kickstarter Campain still going strong this year I will be concentrating right now on making both as wonderful as I am capable.  I also am in the last stages of getting my latest book; “Entering The Second Half” completed.  Because it is my both my first non fiction and it is a memoir I am really cautious and checking it with my family and  friends.

 

Tuesdays episode of Chatting With Sherri;  Changing Lanes: From Hell to Heaven by Hailey Rose Barrett was photo 135816_406565138320_1875124_nthe last episode of 2014.  This year has been an exciting year for my show.  Not only have I had varied and exciting guests but my fans have been very vocal in how much they love and enjoy both the style of the show and the subjects covered.  Thank you.  Our show was a lot of fun, Hailey and I chatted about writing and how it is a great way to both express your self and exercise those inner demons.  Check out our fun and lively conversation;  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2014/12/16/chatting-with-sherri

I now have 9 backers for my Kickstarter Campaign to fund my play A Heavenly Hand to launch a local theater group here in La Mesa. I am so grateful to each one of them, but we have a long way to go.  I truly believe in my dream  to produce my play locally and see if we can get a local  theater group going again here in the suburbs of San Diego.  The money raised will go to renting a rehearsal hall, theater, programs, tickets, costumes, sets, refreshments…etc. If successful I will produce other works to make a season that will introduce live theater at affordable prices again.  I hope you will help me out; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rithebard/sherris-playhouse-presents-a-heavenly-hand
