Author Interview: Pauline Harris

My first author interview, and I’m so happy it’s with Patchwork Press’s new and amazing author, Pauline Harris with her debut novel, Puppet. Penelope lives in a world of advanced technology but many claim society has yet to catch up. Marionettes have advanced in the form of robots; lifelike creations remote controlled to perform super […]

Happy Book day (and Happy Birthday!)

I’ve managed to keep up the tradition at lease one year. Happy book day and Happy Birthday (to me!). It’s hard to believe an entire year has passed since A Grimm Legacy was launched into the world. The year had brought broken bones and rear-ended cars, beach vacations, and a kid that needed glasses. The […]

When a Character’s a Character

Recently I was thinking about characters. Mostly, how authors go about creating them. I feel (and hope!) my characters became these rich, fully formed beings of their own between my first book (A Grimm Legacy) and the second book (Grimm Memories). Dylan is a clear favorite most of the time. He’s quirky and funny, and I […]

Which of course means Erica Crouch has been designing new covers… IN A VICTORIAN society fascinated by spiritualists, something wicked sinks its claws in from the other side. Odessa […]

Release Day: The Betrayed by Terra Harmony

If  The Rising is any indication, Terra Harmony will knock your socks off–again. She’s kept us waiting long enough: the second book in The Painted Maiden’s trilogy, The Betrayed. Two separate worlds; the Undine of The Deep and the Wolves of The Dry. A history muddled in war but thick with family bonds blur the lines of right […]

The Lost Locket of Lahari

The babble of thousands of men’s voices. A cacophony of dialects. A sharp smell of sweat and animal dung intertwine with the commands of elephant handlers as the great beasts lumber under burdens of soil and marble. The heat is stifling, but a wind scuttles across the chaotic building site, bringing a breath of coolness […]

The Challenges of a Sequel

To keep my fingers busy during the lulls between getting chapters back from my editor for Grimm Memories, I’ve began the third and final installment in the Grimm Tales series. While this project doesn’t have a title yet, I can share a few things. The last book in the series is a prequel. It is […]

The Beauty of a Bent Book

Recently I got the absolutely exhilarating opportunity to speak with a book club about my book. Six lovely ladies had actually sat down and read A Grimm Legacy. I don’t get a lot of reader feedback, and I get even less in person. Fair enough to say, this is the first time I’ve spoken with […]

Grimm Memories Sneak Peek

My beta readers have done a wonderful and through job, and Grimm Memories is officially off for its first round of edits. It’s a bit like a momma sending a baby bird off the edge of the nest and wondering if they’ll flap their wings or fall. It’s possibly a little premature (after all, I […]
