This Tuesday Chatting With Sherri will chat with author Lee Phillips about her book Child Of The Land! Lee Phillips couldn’t ignore a headline in the South China Morning Post that read “Children Condemned to Die”.  Much to her horror, the article detailed the conditions of Chinese orphanages were abandoned children often 3d book for thank you copy2014-05-10 01.32.53ended up in “dying rooms.”  For Phillips, it was a call to action.  She ventured to the Chinese city of Zhaoqing, where she climbed the stairs of a prison-like, cement building.  On the fourth floor, she entered a world unlike any other.  The orphanage smelled of urine and feces.  The eyes of the abandoned children haunted Phillips. But one child touched her heart more than the others – a girl named Yu Yan – Phillips was determined to adopt her.  For Phillips-and the girl-the odyssey was just beginning. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2015/08/25/chatting-with-sherri

Edits ain’t easy.

 

authorI have been working hard on three different books. The first one is my memoir, I am in one of the hardest for me. Editing.  That take a lot of concentration and to be honest it is not my talent. I just go through the edits of my beta’s and my family.  And then I send it out to be edited again to make sure I don’t miss anything.  It is tedious and very hard.  But it is oh so important. This is also my first non-fiction book and it is my life.  So I hope it will be interesting and entertaining.

 

I am also working on a YA book, it is the first part of series.  This is a first for me and it feels weird to be working on the first part knowing that it will be followed by more.  It has it’s own problems and frustrations but I am enjoying it.

 

The last is my book Fantasy Time Inc.  My book is no longer going to be available on the sell links.  I have pulled it.  I am going to expand and rewrite it and make it a better book.

 

fantasy time  inc It will still be available as an e-book till the new and approved version of it is available in book form.  I also changed the book cover I think it is wonderful it was also created by Anja Gruber the talented artist who created all the illustrations for Different Is Beautiful.  It will be a better book when I get through it.  If you would like a first edition it will be available still be available through my website.

I am bringing back blog interviews with my fellow authors, so this month I am features; Jesse Frankel!

Here is our mini-interview;

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?—Wow, the first book I can remember really loving was Inferno, by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. It was an updated version of Dante’s catnip coverInferno and it was totally cool. I’ve always loved S?F and Fantasy, and yes,Jesse I still have it at my sister’s house in Canada.

.What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?—I prefer to read S/F and Fantasy, anything with action, and books that have a touch of romance in them as well. All of those things are like life itself—without monsters and orcs—but we all have a sense of adventure and whimsy in us, and that’s what I like to read about.

 Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?—Good question. I think it was Tuck Everlasting. It made me think about the consequences of immortality. Blessings and curses often go together. This book showed both sides of the coin.

 Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?—Mm…I prefer to read LindsayJoandtheTreeofForever  (1)something that happens in the here and now, although with a twist to it. I’m not against historical dramas and what have you, but some I’ve read have been wrong in terms of the terms and artifacts used, and I like for things to be accurate. Just my thinking…I guess I’m a little OCD about it!

Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?—I have a writing desk set up in the corner of my apartment and slave away there. In between classes teaching English—my main job—I Lindsay-vs-Marauders (1) (1)doodle on napkins or in a notebook if an idea hits me.

Do you prefer one genre to another?—I prefer S/F and fantasy/adventure to everything else, but if a story is well written, then no problem. I have read diverse fiction, and various thoughts Twisted (1) (1) (1) (1)on orientation are no problem for me. I’ve written lesfic as well as straight YA, so I like to try different genres in reading as well as writing.

 Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?—To be honest, I love the smell of a new book, the crinkling of the pages in my hands, the feeling that “this is mine” and no one else can touch it. I do read books on my computer, but I guess I’m a little old-fashiioned. Paper is still where it’s at for me.

 Can you tell us about what your working on now?—Right now, I’m editing an action/fantasy called Arcana in which an Indiana Jones-type adventurer makes a deal and finds out that he got more than he bargained for. Of course, there’s a whole boatload of action, a little romance, and some humor. I’ll see how it goes. I’m also editing Deathbytes300a F/F novel entitled What She Saw and working on the final of the Lindsay/Jo trilogy, Lindsay, Jo and the Well of Nevermore. It keeps me pretty busy!

I’d like to thank everyone who bought my novel; Murder Inc. as an e-book! It is amazing how supportive everyone is and I am so very appreciative.  As you know this first baby was born as a fan fiction story that I murder inccompletely re-wrote into an original story and then I expanded it and re-wrote it again in its current novel form. I hope new readers will buy the e-book or the paperback and join Patty and Alex on their journey.  Please check it out; http://outskirtspress.com/webpage.php?ISBN=1598002821  You can also buy it at Barnes and Noble;http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/murder-inc-ri/1007817033?ean=9781598002829&itm=1&usri=9781598002829&r=1

As we reach thea square teddy cover_bearb (2) final stages of publication for another baby; Different is Beautiful we hope this helps teach children about the way of love. To teach them acceptance and understanding. So my book is beautiful, sweet and colorful but it also teaches them that everyone is beautiful. Everyone no matter, what they look like, how they act, who they worship and who they love. Part of the money from the sale of the book will go to an Anti Bullying group that will be disclosed as soon as it is possible. It is the only thing I could think of to help stop this. Love is the way. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Different-Is-Beautiful/516783585089593?ref_type=bookmark
