GMTA Blog Tour The Unseen Promise by Ellen Mae Franklin

 Today, Easter Sunday, I have the pleasure of hosting Ellen Mae Franklin. She is here to make a scheduled stop on her Blog Tour to promote the release of The Unseen Promise.

ELLEN MAE FRANKLIN

Let’s not dilly-dally but get on with it. What is it you want to share with us today?

I am here to talk about my first book – The Unseen Promise which was released on the 25th of March by GMTA Publishing. This had me very excited.

UPCBBT

Read the blurb and scrutinised the cover. Both are very appealing and I will most certainly read the whole book. Tell me more about it, please?

I have been told it is a classical fantasy piece, pure imagination with characters in abundance. This, I think, reflects upon the days of my childhood and the books that influenced me along the way. Reading is habitual and there isn’t a day that goes by where I am not toting a book.

The worlds that Enid Blyton created for me, had me reading long after I heard, lights out! From there on in the power of words captured my heart and mind. I progressed to other authors and more complex storylines. The love, I have for this genre shows in my writing and the endless meanderings I put to paper. Authors that have inspired and influenced my writing style are many, but to name a few that stand out as giants are in order, Joe Abercrombie – for me this author has taken fantasy to a new level. The story he creates are complex, gritty, violent, and colourful. I have learnt a great deal from his books, character development and dialogue.

George RR Martin, Fiona McIntosh, Ian Irvine, Guy Gavriel Kay, Julian May, Stephen Donaldson, Robert Jordon, Robin Hobb, Sara Douglass to name a few that have given me years of enjoyment.

Those are some of the best writers out there. But tell us a bit about yourself.

I was born and still live in Adelaide, Australia. For me, there is no place like home. The big 50 has come and gone, my children are adults, which leaves me to indulge myself in the things I love, writing, reading, gardening and traveling. I get to spend quality time with the people I love. Adding to my family are 2 dogs and like all pet owners, I shamelessly dote on them.

The Unseen Promise is the first book in a series I am working on, called the Tarkeenia Sagas. It takes place on the world, Tarkeenia. Imaginary and very new characters have been created to walk this world that is on the brink of chaos. I have been asked, if my book contains a message to the reader. I thought that it would be a good idea for The Unseen Promise to answer that question.

The blurb

In the beginning

What is curiosity? Is it a beginning or is it an ending? Should you embrace it or do you shut your eyes and pray for the love of whatever god you hold close that it disappears? It is a thing without limitations and restraints, for it carries no conscience, other than what its bearer holds. So I ask, should it be valued or feared? For it begs to be heard and it never, ever, no matter how much you should wish it, offers even the smallest measure of mercies.

Even the gods feel the tug of its call, its alluring charm. All except for one. He believed that he alone held its secrets, and valued curiosity as a favorite trinket to be kept close until such time, as it was needed.

So, be warned friend, for to answer its call – curiosity’s enticing song – it must be with wide eyes and a steady heart, for trouble always follows.

Great! Did you mean for it to be a series from the offset?

It was always my intention to write this book as a part of a series, but it wasn’t until I was half way through, that I understood the complexity of the many characters and storyline I was creating. With 90 characters to work with, there are some very colourful personalities, some shouting out to be heard way after the final two words – The End!

Who knows where this might lead.

I know the market I am working in is very competitive and the Big 6 almost an Urban Myth. So what does a fledgling writer do?
For me it was simple – Take Social Media by the horns and build a platform, I believed I needed awareness for
The Unseen Promise before it was released. I created a Fan Page on Facebook, a Twitter account and in trial and error, websites. Networking became a priority and I set about the business of making connections. It was important for me to listen and learn from others with experience in the industry.

Hosting interviews in different forms on my blog and website, has also helped in creating awareness to myself as a writer and to the work I am producing. Supporting other Authors gains, not only a respectable standing in the industry, but helps to form a supportive safety net. I have had some very positive experiences connecting with others like mind.

The other crucial belief I have and this may stem from my many years of Field Merchandising, is that the book cover of any book must be visually compelling. All humans are visual creatures, so the artwork must be as such that it stops a reader mid stride. I used the website Odesk to find the graphic artist, I believed was capable of illustrating fantasy. I chose Cristian Poppa, he had an artistic eye, the creative ability and the technique to portray my characters as I visualized them.

I am currently doing my best to keep my head above water. Working hard on three different projects, the second book in the Tarkeenia Sagas. It is called – It’s not the Bite that kills you. I am also, co-writing with a very talented UK Author, Pete Emmerson on a fantasy series. We have not given our project a name it is still a work in progress.

My other project is a group effort. I am co-founder of an Australian group of writers and authors, 34 in total and we are working on writing short stories for Australian themed anthologies. We are called Terra Australis and the anthologies we are producing will be published late August this year. The book names will be Tales from Terra Australis, book one and book two.

Interviews take up any remaining free time. This is a way of connecting with others and supporting their efforts and hard work. Building friendships and networking along the way. I will endeavor to market my work on a very personal level and this seems to be part of the world when self-publishing or working closely with a small publishing company. So, it is imperative to remain positive. For me it is simply, once I emerge myself in the world of writing and the process of creating I find that I am often swept along, and of course, there can be no going back. 

Thank you Ellen for stopping by and now tell us where to get that book! 🙂

Featured Author Minnie Lahongrais

Today Minnie Lahongrais joins us to tell us all about herself and her book. 

Welcome Minnie, glad you could stop by. Make yourself at home and don’t hesitate to tell us all about yourself before we do the interview. Oh, you have a real author bio? Go ahead, post it, but do show us your face too. 🙂

Minnie Lahongrais

Minnie, you seem to be a very content and happy person. Your eyes have the glint of someone who is in their happy place. Good for you! Okay, bio time. 🙂

Native New Yorker, Minnie Lahongrais unwittingly kick-started her second career when she began writing an urban fantasy tale intended to help her cope with the death of her father. November of that year, she set that story aside to immerse herself in the annual madness of NaNoWriMo, meeting the challenge head on. Her first novel, “Sinner’s Ride” was published Spring of 2011. That summer, she found herself obsessed with the story idea for “Divergent Lives.”

Next on her agenda is the urban fantasy she began at the outset of her journey. She now plans to write that story as a trilogy.

Ms. Lahongrais currently lives in New York City. She finds time to write every day and spends her free time with her family.

And if your fans would like to find/follow you, where can we find you on this world wide web?

Great! Now let’s get started with what you’ve came here for. The interview and most important of all, tell us all about your book and whatnot.

Can you give me your best Whoop? Unless you have another one which works better for you?

Lol!! Thanks for having me here today, Lucy! So, you want a “whoop” huh? Well, here goes:

Whoop! Pink Diamonds are forever!!

Okay, never heard that one before, 🙂 but does it work all the time, even those times when the muse has gone and done a runner on you? And when did you first start with it?

Well, it worked just now. This is the first time I’ve ever used it!

Right, sounds like you should be using it a lot more then, seeing how brilliantly it worked for you. Wheeeeheeee! Let’s do a few of the yada yada questions before we move on to the fun.

What is the title of the book you would like to talk about?

Today, I’d like to discuss my sophomore release, “Divergent Lives.”

Divergent Lives JPEG One Page Cover

Love this cover! It speaks of the road through life, something bad to happen and DNA? Wow, what you can read in a cover. Now tell me am I right?

This story features fraternal twins – one male, one female – born to immigrant Puerto Rican parents in 1962 in a part of New York City called “El Barrio.” One of the twin babies is born with a physical deformity. Unbeknownst to the parents, the twins are separated at birth and only one remains with the birth parents, Jesus and Cruzita Rosario. The other twin is sold on the black market to Pastor James Ezekiel Preston and his wife, a former prostitute named Margaret. They reside in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

Released 12/12/12 and currently boasting several 4- and 5-star reviews on Amazon, this tale is told in parallel to show how certain life events occur almost simultaneously, creating sociopathic tendencies in each. Each twin’s sociopathy dictates the inevitable path their individual lives will take. Those divergent paths, if you will, later converge in carnage.

It already sounds like a great book! How did you come up with the story?

The would-be characters of this story had stalked me since mid-2011. I had just released my debut, “Sinner’s Ride” and I was itching to get back to an urban fantasy I’d begun in May of 2010 when I suddenly recalled bits of a conversation I overheard as a child and the memory turned me inside out. I let my imagination wreak havoc on the page.

Isn’t it funny how the most innocuous turn of phrase can morph into something so deadly?

It certainly is, but sometimes we have no control over our own imagination and that is a good thing being writers and all.

But did you have difficulty coming up with the title?

I wouldn’t say it was difficult.

The working title for this project was “Standing on the Precipice.” At the time, based on the tale I thought I wanted to tell, this was an appropriate title. But as I delved deeper, the characters began to reveal themselves as unapologetic deviants, and this title didn’t serve. While discussing this dilemma with a friend, I decided on the title “Divergent Lives.” That led me to my cover design and a logo for the story, which will be my next tattoo. (Some people celebrate the release of a new novel with mirth and drink. I celebrate the release of my books with tattoos.)

Minnie, I love tattoos! Now you make me very curious as to how those tattoos look like and where you hide them. But I can imagine you want to keep some things private, so let’s just get on with the interview. Next question it is.

If you would have to change the genre, what would it be then?

Hmm, with regard to this story, if I had to change genre, I would have to add a few additional touches. I would have to go with paranormal.

Paranormal, eh? I luv paranormal, but where can we buy that book of yours?

Amazon UK

Amazon US

And of course any other Amazon store across the globe.

Just to confuse you we’ll take the alternative route now.

What don’t you like about writing, or whatever you need to do marketing wise?

Ha! Woman, I’m not so easily confused!

Hahahaha, good! 🙂 Then tell me and don’t hold back a thing.

I love writing and weaving story lines. I love being uninhibited in the creative process and being absorbed by the research. What I abhor is the lack of time I have to dedicate to my passion. The fact that I have to spend so many hours away from what I love weighs heavily on me. But one must eat and provide oneself with shelter.

I definitely don’t have a problem connecting with readers and other writers. I don’t even have a problem receiving critiques and/or reviews that are less than glowing. None of that bothers me. In fact, I crave it because it pushes me. All of that motivates me to become better at my chosen craft.

Even blocks are a positive thing because what it means to me is that I need to give that particular project a break. When I’m blocked, I work on something else. I walk through other creative doorways.

As far as I’m concerned, it is all part of the process of learning. I don’t ever want to stop learning.

Tell me, when your muse is visiting and you’re on a roll, what would seriously drive her/him away?

Good question. I just had a vision of my muse frowning because of the “him/her” reference. My muse is completely androgynous. It thinks that being categorized by gender is limiting. So, whenever I have to humanize my muse, I refer to it by the very epicene name of “Jheri.” In reality, my muse is more of a feeling than a being.

You know that might be a very good way of regarding your ‘muse’. Go on, please.

Jheri is very domineering, and can’t easily be driven away. The only time I had any trouble summoning Jheri was when I was recuperating from knee surgery this past summer — I was either hospitalized or at a nursing home AND heavily medicated for almost three weeks. Once the meds wore off and I was back home, Jheri returned with a vengeance!

What does your muse look like?

Jheri is a shape-shifter. Whatever character I am writing, that is the shape Jheri takes on until that character’s identity has been fully formed. And that doesn’t usually happen until the story is done and/or published. It’s like giving birth and just as arduous.

Do you ever speak to your characters and do you get along all the time?

They tell me nasty things, and I’m all, “Whaaaat is this? I can’t say that!” but then I have to. While in the midst of writing, I only listen and allow myself to be guided by the characters. We often go back and forth as we tweak scenes. I’ve not yet had a character that gave me such a hard time that I get stuck for very long.

Great! Sounds like you and your characters have a very good relationship.

Can you name the food and drink that will surely get you started?

1.) I don’t write on an empty stomach and 2.) I don’t drink alcoholic beverages when I’m writing. I do, however, celebrate with wine when I’ve reached a milestone in any project.

Would you be able to come up with an excuse on why you haven’t written a whole day, and have me believe it too?

No, no excuses. I am in the practice of writing every day.

How very structured of you, I admire that.

And finally why would you ever want to live life behind a keyboard slaving over a manuscript?

For more than 30 years, I’ve sat behind a keyboard slaving over documents written by others. To be able to give it all up and live a life behind a keyboard and make a living at it would be heavenly. It wouldn’t be “slaving” to me. Working on a manuscript is a labor of love that I offer of myself to my readers, my fans. In a manner of speaking, I am humbly offering up a piece of my soul.

And we, your readers accept that precious gift gladly.

Okay now that we have the mandatory questions out of the way, shoot your mouth off. Tell me whatever you want the blab about. But please no cats, dogs, or children. Make me laugh, or cry, or even envious. Tell me something none has ever heard before from you. hehehe, love those little dirty secrets, real or make believe. 🙂

What I’m about to share is somewhat of an exclusive and will help you understand why I write what I do.

Oh! I have an exclusive! Yay! I’ll shut up now and let you do the talking.

I’ve had people get all up-in-arms about my graphic scenes and the blunt, matter-of-fact way that I parcel out deviant details. Interviewers (present company excepted) probe me and try to get me to admit which scenes are factual. My response to those questions is this:

Everything that I write has a grain of truth in it. I just inflate it with my imagination.”

But many are dissatisfied with that answer.

Not me!

The fact of the matter is that there are events in my life that have caused me much pain. That is the reason why I don’t do Happily Every Afters in my writing (and maybe in life, too, hmm). There are plenty of those already written. I believe in examining both the dark and light of everyone, even if it is in the guise of fiction.

I know I am perceived to be a certain way. By day, I am a professional in a very stiff environment. I’m all over social media with a big, bright smile. I am personable and engaging. But real life is rife with taboos never spoken of. Taboos that I want to know everything about. But by their very nature, taboos are relative depending on where they originate and where they thrive. What may be taboo in one community may not be taboo in another.

That is undeniably true Minnie, but not always recognised as such.

There are less than a handful of people who know me so well that when I begin to ponder and discuss certain things with them, they let me go there. They know I am being real; that I’m not doing it for shock value. They know there is a real desire in me to understand the unspeakable.

I am a woman; a non-conformist who is not afraid to cross boundaries. The bottom line is that I have to be true to myself.

Ugly things have happened to me. Often, there was no one for me to turn to. I had to suck it up and keep moving, so I buried those painful and hateful feelings. Writing is my outlet for those burdens, and it helps me transfer that vitriol to paper. It’s not always easy to read AT ALL. Anne Lamott once wrote in Bird by Bird, “We write to expose the unexposed. If there is one door in the castle you were told not to go through, you must. …Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writer’s job is to see what’s behind it, to see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words…”

It was Good Friday, 1982. It had snowed and my father begged me not to go to work. He said he had a bad feeling. We fought about it. I thought he just didn’t want me to move out and was trying to scare me. He knew I was trying to get money together. His tirade continued with him saying I would go to hell for working on such a sacred day. I scoffed at him and off to work I went with two tokens for the subway and five dollars for lunch.

Around mid-day, a well-dressed man walked into the office and said he needed a lawyer to defend his brother on a weapons charge. He was handsome, clean-shaven, and had long tapered fingers with manicured fingernails. He wore all black with a camel colored, cashmere overcoat. His hair looked freshly cut. He looked dressed for Easter service.

In spite of his dapper appearance, I got a chill. I went ahead anyway and asked the standard question: “How did you hear of Mr. So and So?”

The man said that a court bailiff had given him the number. I narrowed my eyes at him; he was lying. A bailiff isn’t allowed to make recommendations — he or she would have directed him to the phone book.

Peering up at him, I handed him a clipboard of forms and left him in the small reception area. I went into the back office to speak to the lone attorney scheduled to work with me that day.

My colleague, Bill, assured me he would speak with the stranger and dismiss him because he wanted to close early. A short while later, I escorted him into the back office then went back to mine to do some filing. About twenty minutes later, I heard shuffling, saw a quick flash of hands, then, startled by another noise not typical for an office environment, I leaned out.

That handsome man was now holding a gun to Bill’s head. I froze but a gasp escaped me. That’s when he saw me.

He pushed Bill toward the conference room and screamed at me not to make a sound. He began waving the gun at me, yelling for me to go to him. I shuffled in his direction, my feet leaden. My mind was racing, searching for an escape. But there was only one way in or out of the office. I was trapped.

When I reached him, he pushed us both into the conference room and had Bill lie face down on the floor. Holding the gun between my shoulders, he made me take Bill’s tie off and secure his hands behind his back. Then he pulled the phone cord out of the wall with a snap and ordered me to bind his feet. Now the gun was at my head. Fingers flying, I tied Bill up quick and tight. I didn’t want this idiot to get mad at me for not getting the knots tight enough and spray my brains against the wall with a single shot at close range.

Then he robbed us. He took my rings, my measly five dollars, which was a lot for me at the time, and had me take my earrings off and hand them over. He barked at us about valuables either in my pockets or my office. I told him all I had left was a subway token and he couldn’t have it because I had a baby to get home to. I was scared shitless, afraid he would rape me. I know that rape isn’t about sex, it’s about control and I had just challenged him with my attitude. Anything could have happened. In my powerlessness, time moved slowly.

He grabbed my wrist and pulled me toward the window. He ripped the cord from the window blinds with a hiss and snarled it around my hands, which he held behind me. I can’t tell you all the ridiculous thoughts that went through my head: the fear and astonishment of being in this position is what I remember most clearly. He knocked me to my knees with an elbow, and I fell to my side. With Bill and I both completely vulnerable, he left after warning us not to move for five minutes.

There was no freaking way I was waiting for five minutes. After a minute or so, I crawled over to Bill and released his hands with my teeth then sat up. I watched him as he undid his ankle ties; amazed he wasn’t disgusted I had slobbered all over his hands. Isn’t it strange what goes through your mind at times of high crisis?

The next thing I knew, Bill was freeing my wrists.

At first, we didn’t speak, both of us stunned into silence. I felt as if I floated above, looking down on the two of us. Still not speaking, he took hold of my shoulders, looked into my eyes. I stared back, jaw slack. Seeing that I was physically ok, he rose and locked the front door. I struggled to my feet, dazed, and then called the police.

The man had disappeared. It was a few weeks later when we learned he committed a similar crime and was arrested. Again, I thought hard about how lucky I had been and I obsessed over it for years.

With the gun at my forehead, my life didn’t flash before my eyes. I thought of my baby and what would become of her; where she might end up if this freaking idiot pulled the trigger. I thought about what my father had said about going to hell if I went to work on that sacred day. And I did visit hell. They say violence changes you. It changed me. So now I wander to the dark side, peering behind locked doors — breaking and entering into the psychologically deviant because of that day.

Today, I am a proud Latina with a whole lot of living to do. My stories serve as my therapy. Some of the things I write about, the things that my characters do are things that I do to my demons. In my stories, my characters think they are getting over like fat rats in a cheese factory. They never think they will pay for their transgressions. However, in reality they lose something of themselves.

In my imagination, when I am the protagonist, I ALWAYS win. I ALWAYS come out on top.

Wow, Minnie, thank you for sharing all of that with me and my readers. No doubt some of them will be your readers too after this.

I want to thank you again for granting me this interview and hope you will remember me when you have another book coming out and give me a chance to post about your work again.

A Celtic Tapestry Blog Tour – Hunter S. Jones an author

Moon Rose Publishing has just released their newest book, A CELTIC TAPESTRY! An anthology between eight authors, each one has taken their own twist on one of the Celtic festivals of the year. From sunny spring to chilly winter, everyone’s favourite season is given a fresh and enticing take in this wonderful collection. To celebrate, Moon Rose Publishing is also hosting a fabulous giveaway as part of the release!

And today Hunter S. Jones is here to talk about it.

Hi Hunter, glad to see you here today. Before we get a move on with the blog tour and book promo can you give me your best Whoop? Or Wheeeheee? Because somehow I know you’re not one of those silent types, right?

How about a Wooohooo!  ?

Okay, sounds like a winner that one, but does it work all the time, even those times when the muse has gone and done a runner on you? And when did you first start using it?

No, I really need to use it. It’s only used for special occasions.

Right, you are on the right track there. Let’s do a few of the yada yada questions before we move on to the real fun.

What is the title of the book you would like to talk about? Is it another one of those zombie erotica stories I enjoyed reading so much? Fables of the Reconstruction, who could forget about that one. The first ever zombie erotica which actually worked how erotica should.

Why, thank you Lucy. That’s so nice of you to say. I’m glad you enjoyed Fables. That really means a lot.

Today, let’s chat about A Celtic Tapestry. It’s the highly anticipated new anthology from Moon Rose Publishing.

A Celtic Tapestry cover

The wheel of the year turns, bringing the joy of spring, the warmth of summer, the richness of autumn, and the merriment of winter. But eight Celtic festivals link these seasons together, bringing with them romance, lust, danger, and even magic. From a city under threat from night-time creatures at Ostara, to a selkie caught by the light of the Lughnasadh moon, to a writer caught in the flames of a fiery goddess at Imbolc.

Eight authors have come together to give their own twist on these festivals, weaving each story with a blend of myth, magic, and contemporary telling…to create A Celtic Tapestry. The authors involved in this anthology are Livia Ellis, Hunter S. Jones, Laura DeLuca, Elodie Parkes, Elle J Rossi, Miranda Stork, Carolyn Wolfe and Tara Stogner Wood.

Did you have difficulty coming up with the title of this one? Dumb question, it’s an anthology, you wouldn’t have to come up with a title. Let’s change it then. Would you have chosen another one?

A Celtic Tapestry is an anthology available through Moon Rose Publishing. The publisher, Miranda Stork, was thoughtful enough to allow the eight authors to vote on the title. How great is that?

That is wonderful and I guess most satisfying to you authors knowing you had a say in the whole coming together of the book and whatnot?

But just to confuse you we’ll take the alternative route now.

What don’t you like about writing, or whatever you need to do marketing wise?

I love the creative process…taking random thoughts and placing them into a finished written story. As for marketing…that’s an entirely different beast, isn’t it?

Tell me, when your muse is visiting and you’re on a roll, what would seriously drive her/him away?

Having a drink.

What does your muse look like?

I’m superstitious, so I can’t tell you Lucy.

Oh, okay 🙂 But that does make me curious if he/she might be a bit jealous or possessive. Anyway, do you ever speak to your characters and do you get along all the time?

The characters tend to ‘speak’ to me and give me clues. It’s up to me to find out how all the puzzle pieces fit together and make it into a story.

Can you name the food and drink that will surely get you started?

Everyday starts with a coup of English tea. Sugar only, no cream.

Would you be able to come up with an excuse on why you haven’t written a whole day, and have me believe it too?

I’ve been researching today and…

Hahaha, now that sounds really plausible. And finally why would you ever want to live life behind a keyboard slaving over a manuscript?

Because I ruptured my Achilles tendon last year and can’t do anything else right now!

Okay now that we have the mandatory questions out of the way, shoot your mouth off. Tell me whatever you want the blab about. But please no cat’s, dogs, or children. Make me laugh, or cry, or even envious. Tell me something none has ever heard before from you. hehehe, love those little dirty secrets, real or make believe. 🙂

Love one another, do no harm and support independent artists whether it’s music, acting, the written word or art.

Thank you Lucy! Everybody loves Lucy and I appreciate you taking the time to speak with me today.

Thank you for bringing the Tour to my blog. 🙂 The only things I’m curious about are how it all came to be for you, bio time! And where can we get that anthology?

What? There’s a trailer for the book?

Trailer!

And the book can be bought at

MRP Website link: http://www.moonrosepublishing.com/#!a-celtic-tapestry/cayu

Amazon

But now I’d like to read that bio of yours, please? 🙂

The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. I was always a complex kid. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history. Currently, I have a music blog and published my debut novella, Fables of the Reconstruction, in 2012. I have a fascination with Edgar Allan Poe and Anne Rice, although I love history and like any Southern girl, I will always idolize Margaret Mitchell for writing Gone With The Wind. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my partner, my books and a million dollar view.
