This year, my theme for the challenge is Strange Feelings: weird and possibly made up words to describe feelings we all have. I'll let you guess if the word is real or not.
––the relaxed, calm feeling you have when you’re inside and it’s storming outside
Happy Anniversary to me and hubby! Also, it's the start of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. This year should be interesting since there will be no list. If you missed my theme reveal post, let me catch you up. My theme is Strange Feelings: weird and possibly made up words to describe feelings we all have. I'll leave you to decide which ones are made up.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! And what better way to celebrate when you can't drink alcohol like me than with some awesome paranormal romance and urban fantasy books? These stories are on sale for a limited time, but if you have Kindle Unlimited (KU), you can read them any time for free! KU is as good as finding a pot of books at the end of the rainbow. (Can you spot mine? Yup, Mike is in there.)
It's Read an eBook Week. Each year, tens of thousands of Smashwords authors, publishers and readers participate in this global ebook celebration which offers FREE and deep-discounted ebooks. I figured I should do some shameless promo for my books that I enrolled. Marketing, I know what I'm doing, totes. >.>
Before I get into it, I'm finally posting something to Wattpad again, so check out the first story in Journey Into Darkness: Three Dark Tales of the Paranormal.
I've been writing drabbles for a couple years now, and I've been wanting to do something with them, but wasn't sure how well a book featuring only 100 word stories would go over. Wouldn't people want something longer?
One thing readers may notice when they dig into Abducted Life is the strange thing I did with my chapters. Instead of the traditional Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, and so on, I started with Chapter: Xxxx. The next chapter is Chapter: Savannah. It alternates with whose POV the story is in. After a certain point where I stop using Xxxx. The reason for that is I didn't want Evan's name used up until a certain point. His name is in the blurb and mentioned once in that first chapter so readers know who's POV we are in when not in Savannah's, but after that, you won't read it again for a while.
Y'all... Y'ALL! Abducted Life's release day is finally here and you have zero idea how long I've been waiting. I had everything prepped in advance because I didn't want to mess up and miss release day and have Amazon revoke my pre-order privileges. Having that link early is nice for marketing purposes. Not to mention it's been TWO years since I published. I swear that's my lot in life. Every two years the stars align and let me crank out something for people to read.
Anyways, all over the internet, my book is getting pimped out. I thought I'd start here with the motivation behind the story.
Today I have Rochelle Campbell and Donald from her story, Blue Boy. The story is part of The SciFi End of the Supernatural: A Short Story Collection. He's a magical being that looks human. However, he is able to grant wishes to certain people. In this short story, Donald decides to re-define who he can grant wishes for. She's letting me torture him with an interview. >8D
Since Abducted Life is coming out next week (HOLY CRAP!) I figure it's time to whet your appetite with a teaser. MUAHAHAHAHAHA!
White-hot light stung his eyes. The roar of an engine shook his eardrums, threatening to burst them. His arms and legs were pinned to the cold ground. Above, a massive craft hovered. It was black and sleek, like a giant Porsche with wings instead of wheels. Turbines beat out a frantic rhythm, and yellow lights flashed along its belly. With a low warble, the craft lifted up, vanishing among the stars in a matter of seconds.
When Chys posted on her blog wanting questions to answer for her upcoming release, I had one I knew I needed to ask: Since your characters are always getting caught up in hurricanes and tsunamis, and I live in the frozen tundra, how do you think they would fare in a blizzard?
Let's see how Chrys answered. >8D
