Mirror- X; I was born more than a thousand years ago, put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, and forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world; I’ve finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future, but it’s clear my freeze didn’t avoid a dreadful fate – it only delayed the horror…http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2014/07/08/chatting-with-sherri#.U7Q9Ca6K1gE.twitter

Chatting on…

Cover 200x300 (2)This week I spoke to Will Merrill about 9/11 called “Ordinary People: Extraordinary Heroes;” It really touched me as I heard the stories that Will told about the after effects of that violent act against 200x300 (2)innocent people. It was the most serious and important of the interviews I have had so far. I have had a lot of fun talking to my guests about their projects and I think they have enjoyed it too. This was the first time I was so touched by the subject.  I enjoyed talking to Will who is a kind and gentle man. He also talks about this with passion and a great need to communicate what happened to real people during a horrible time and the affect on them both emotionally and physically. I was choked up a couple of times during the interview, It was fascinating, compelling and full of important information. Please listen to the interview; http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/11/chatting-with-sherri It is a very important one. Below are the links for his book;

Last week I took part in a blog tour for my book, Fantasy Time Inc. https://rithebard.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/sp314400_247662608624899_1376127242_necial-11746930blog-book-tour-edition/. Two of my writing buddies Sarah Baethge; http://sarahbaethge.blogspot.com/2012/12/big-book-blog-tour-speed-of-darkness.html  and Gabe Beyers; http://www.gabrielbeyers.blogspot.com/ did the blog tour this week.  I can’t tell you how much I love new and exciting ways to promote our books. In a world that is media driven it is
surprisingly hard to get the word out and sell your books. This was a great way to do it. So I want to thank Tracy Kaufman;    http://tracykauffman.blogspot.com  for inviting me to take part in this exciting adventure!
My next exciting adventure I am doing all on my own. I am going to have an on-line Blog Book Fair on Christmas Day. I thought it pic with bookwould be a unique way to showcase not only my two books but other authors that have become friends through interviewing and social media.  I will have raffles for free books through out the day. Please check the top of the page for those books on Dec. 25th. So come and browse all the authors that will be featured and buy a nice late present for the holidays. Or a little something for yourself!   https://rithebard.wordpress.com/
11985168My latest review of a new book is Get Real! Fighting the Mythic Woman Finding Your Authentic Self
by Ananya S. Rajan on Goodreads can be found at;  http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/363720317 . I really enjoyed this book very much and learned a lot from it.
My writer interview this week is with M.M. Frye, Please give her a gentle welcome;

 What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?Missy-Promo-Shot-200x (2)

The Large and Growly Bear and yes I do still own it.

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

I like all genres. I tend to get tired of trends and like to mix things up. I’m not sure if they affect my writing. When I write, I’m not thinking of anything but the story.

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

The book was called Alabama Moon and it was part of the Harlequin for teens back in early 80s. I can’t remember the author’s name and really don’t remember much about the story, but I can still recall how it made me feel.

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

I like historical books more than contemporary, though I read both. As to a favorite era, I’m not sure. If the story is good, I don’t think I really mind what era the setting is. I like the WWII era because there are so many factors that can contribute to stories. I like to get emotional punches while I’m reading.

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

I have to be at my desk to write. When I sit in front of my computer, it triggers something in my brian that says it’s time to work. I’ve never had a laptop though. If I did, I might find another place to let my creativity flow.

Do you prefer one genre to another?

I like fantasy and sci-fi and tend to steer away from formulaic romance. Don’t get me wrong I like romance, but prefer it to be a subplot. I’ve read more books in the young adult genre this year than anything else, but my favorite books range from Christian fiction to literary fiction.

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

I like holding a book in my hands and the feel of the paper as I turn the pages. I’ve read using electronic devices, but nothing beats a real book.

 Can you tell us about what your working on now?

I’m currently working on the second draft of a women’s fiction novel. It’s called The Widows of Wyatt Abney. “Yancy and Beth lost a great love when Wyatt Abney died. When they meet again twenty-five years later they throw their families into turmoil and along the way discover whether they’ve truly moved on or merely moved forward.”

Till next time…

Busy Week!

pic with bookI had such a busy week this week. I had my first public speaking engagement for; What is your Life Story?86694361548341527_vPHQTfoq_c   I have done one on ones through the Learning Annex, https://learningannex.com/listings/What-is-your-Life-Story/schedule_time  and a group conference call but never in person. So I am thinking this  a group of people who had not written a lot and needed some guidance to get started. I worked all night on my little 20 minute speech getting it picture perfect and memorized. I arrive early and got to hear some pieces that they had written. What I discovered was that these are very accomplished writers who had already written memoirs.

Well as I sat there listening and35816_406565138320_1875124_n thinking that I can’t do what I thought I was going to do because it would have been completely unacceptable. So I smiled, stood up and went completely off the top of my pointed little head.  It went pretty well because I do know my subject and I am completely willing to share not only about my writing but about my new Blogtalk Radio Show, Chatting with Sherri. So it all turned out well. They all enjoyed it and I recieved  nice emails from both the library and the leader.  I learned a lot and I really hope they did too.

I  also took part in my first Blog Book Tour. It is a really interesting idea. To pool the blogs of many writers to advertise our books so we get a bigger market. Like a consortium. I really do love the idea and of course I am open to anything new and imaginative to sell my books. Here is my special blog with the book tour; https://rithebard.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/special-blog-book-tour-edition/

Speaking of using  your imagination, I have had a really crazy idea. I thought about the book fairs that I have taken part in and I said to myself I wish I could go outside of Southern California.  So after a lively conversation in my head, I came up with this really crazy idea. I am going to have an on line blog book fair on Christmas Day. So come and browse all the authors that will be featured and buy a nice late present for the holidays. Or a little something for yourself! It will be on my website, here is the link;
https://rithebard.wordpress.com/ .  You can sign up for it on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/events/395189883893183/ and Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/event/show/864802-blog-book-fair .

0afef531fec40ad8976ff2_L__V137635642_SX200_This week I had the pleasure of having Anne Hosansky and her latest book Ten Women of Valor on Chatting With Sherri. “Ranging from indomitable Sarah to legendary Queen Esther, they confide frank feelings of faith, ambition, passion and sibling rivalry” It was a fun show all about books, movies and how far we have come as women. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/04/chatting-with-sherri

And next week I am very happy to be chatting with the fascinating Will Merrill about his amazing book about 9/11 calledCover 200x300 (2); “Ordinary 200x300 (2)People: Extraordinary Heroes;” it vividly recalls for us the catastrophic legacy of the most destructive terrorist attack in our country’s history.   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2012/12/11/chatting-with-sherri
