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
Today I'm participating in the launch of a new service started by two writing friends, Marie Landry and Jessica Tate. Both are passionate about writing, and I've worked with before.
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
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
"This is Chrys Fey reporting for Disaster 5 News. I am in Sault Ste. Marie, Mi where a tsunami hit yesterday morning. I have Patricia Lynne with me, a survivor of the tsunami. Patricia Lynne, can you tell our viewers what happened, and how you survived?"
Today I have Crystal Collier on the blog. Even though I'm on a blogging break, I can't resist a shiny new cover to drool over. I'll let her have control from here, so take it over Crystal!
Today I'm giving my blog to Tara Tyler so she can show of her shiny new cover for her latest MG Fantasy Cradle Rock. Take it from here, Tara!
Thanks, for helping me with my cover reveal, Patricia!
You may not realize it, but my Beast World series has a post-apocalyptic undertone... I won't spoil it for those who haven't read it yet, but in Broken Branch Falls and Cradle Rock, humans are the fantastical creatures and beasts are in control.
There are so many ways a world can end and a new one rise from its ashes. And there have been lots of post-apocalyptic stories lately... But how to choose! Well, today I'm talking about different types of apocalypse!

Writers spend hours seated in front of a computer, staring at the screen. We make up characters and move them through situations, putting as much detail into them as we can. Often we draw on our own life experiences when we’re creating characters and situations, even if we have to go all the way back to childhood.
For young writers just starting out, there’s no substitute for life experience. As they choose their jobs, here are a few occupations that can be more beneficial than others for later books.
