"Violence against women is a Global issue, women are being abused, raped and killed. The root of the problem is  gender inequality because women are perceived to be property and subservient to men. These obsolete views must be eliminated because they no longer serve the society we live in. Women are just as active participants in the family as men. Women should break free from limiting beliefs and religious conditioning which suppress their growth and creates gender inequality." Award Winner Author for Best Romance, Dianna Bellerose

Fire and Ice

Buy it at Barnes and Noble Link   : Nancy was sitting at home trying to sort out her life. Trying to figure out what had gone wrong and what could be done to fix it. The weather was windy and rainy. Summer was almost over. There was something to look forward to, her trip to Hawaii. She was hoping to clear her head there and start finding some solutions. She was sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of freshly brewed coffee. The sun was peeking through the window. The room was full of light. Nancy's expression was one of pain and worry. There were so many obstacles in her life, each taking a toll on her. The troubles she was having were with her husband and the family's financial situation. It was hard to cope anymore despite the fact that she considered herself a very strong person. Having no one around to support her made her even more vulnerable. Her husband was unsupportive and violent and was the worst part of her life. She had endured his abuse for twenty years. The load was getting too heavy, and she was not young enough anymore to be able to ignore certain things.

If you've read my first novel, The Fall: An Autobiography of an Alter Ego, you know that I believe the question "Who am I?" is not always answered easily. That said, these three descriptors - author, woman, and terrified - seem to do the job pretty well at the moment. I have claimed myriad titles in life but the only answer to that question that rings true and that applies in any setting (for me) is that of Author. It requires no further explanation.

New Co-Host Dianna Bellerose and Rachel Love visit with Claudette Chenevert. “Whether you’re a new instant mom or a veteran stepmom, raising someone else’s children is never easy. In fact, it’s probably the most difficult job you’ll ever have in your life. Chances are you have probably thought at one point or another, ‘If I’d known then what I know now, I would NOT have gotten involved in a step relationship.’ And that can be a really painful thing to admit. It’s almost like saying if you could turn back time, you would discard your current family and start all over again. But even though you might think thoughts like this during your darkest moments, throwing away your family isn’t what you really want. I know. I’ve been there and I’m so glad that we worked it out, merging together to create our new family. Let me show you a different path, one where you will thrive rather than merely survive, one step at a time. website

Book Tour Guest- Author, Rachel Rossano




Author Bio

Author of novels, novellas, and short stories, Rachel Rossano balances her time between the chaos of raising and homeschooling her three children and the world of drama and high adventure in her head. With her faithful husband and chief consulting editor by her side, she dreams of many more adventures to come in both of her double lives. Check out her work at: http://Rachel-rossano.blogspot.com.




Interview with Rachel Rossano

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

Stories were my world even as a child. I was constantly pretending to be a princess in distress, a space ship captain on a mission, or Robin Hood’s side kick. The stories didn’t make onto the page until I was in my early teens. Even then, the process took so much work that I tended to not enjoy writing. It was only when I began my third novella that I realized I was hooked.

I didn’t seriously consider being a writer as a career until I was in the midst of college. I promptly rejected the idea of trading my wise choice (accounting) for something with such low marketability as writing. After all, I wasn’t interested in journalism, just creative writing.

Years later, looking at the prospect that I might never realize my dream of being a mother, I decided to pursue another dream, writing. That was when I began seriously considering writing as a career. Here I am, mother of three and writing part-time between mothering, keeping house, and homeschooling.

What were some of your first steps toward making your dream a reality?

My first experience with publication was very disappointing. I fell in with a publisher more interested in selling my book to me than to anyone else. But I wasn’t willing to give up on the dream of seeing more of my stories in print. So I researched, read, listened, wrote, edited, and learned. Unable to write anything that fit publishers’ submission criteria, I discovered Lulu.com and joined the indie revolution by accident. Now one novel, two novellas, and two short stories later, I think I am committed.

What 3 adjectives best describe you?

Talkative, busy, happy

Tell us a little bit about your books?

The Mercenary’s Marriage is a novella about the relationship between a mercenary warrior and a slave girl who fears men. He physically represents everything she fears. Can he get her to see past his career and his exterior and earn her trust?

The Crown of Anavrea (Book One of The Theodoric Saga) is novella about a man running from his past. He finds hope in a woman without a future. While on the run, Labren falls injured. Before his pursuers find him, he is discovered by a slave woman named Eve. She convinces him to not give up on life. Together they face difficulties of their pasts.

Exchange is a science fiction short story. Isolated on a distant planet, she is incarcerated for a crime she doesn't recall. She has no name, no idea where she came from, or why she is injected with drugs daily to hold these vital facts from her grasp. Despite small rebellions, she wastes away, worn and losing hope of ever being whole again. Then he arrives. Claiming to hold the answers burned daily from her brain, he offers her a way out. But at what cost?

Word and Deed is a medieval short story. Death or an arranged marriage, Verity refuses to accept the choices. Verity Favian's father dies unexpectedly. Her half-brother, Verdon, lays claim to all their father left behind: title, castle, and her. Verdon cannot touch the land set aside for her dowry so he offers her hand for sale to the highest bidder. Verdon locks her away in a tower. She is not sure if he seeks to prevent her from fleeing the marriage or spreading the truth only she seems willing to speak: Verdon killed their father. Either way, her time is running out.

What can we look forward to from you in the near future?

I have two new releases this year. This February, Duty: a novel of Rhynan debuts. Written in eight months, the fastest I have ever written a book, it began as the winning opening line in a contest. “’The red one is mine,’ he said.”

Brielle is a woman familiar with hardship. She has lost her mother to disease, her father to old age, her title due to lack of a brother, and her comfort because of a greedy cousin. When she finds out she lost her freedom thanks to her cousin’s political maneuvering, she figures she will have to make the best of it. …Except her cousin isn’t done with her or her new husband.

Sometime around August, I am expecting to be releasing another novel. Wren (A Romany Epistle Novel) is part of a unique project. Eight of my friends and I developed an idea of writing nine novels about nine siblings that began in the same spot and ended in the same spot. We would each write a sibling’s story and then publish all the books. Years later, four of the books are written, two will not be written, and the remaining three might be finished someday. Wren is my contribution.

Wren Romany lives by her skills as a hunter, a bounty hunter. But, after a year and a half on the road, she wants to settle down for the winter. Finding a nice quiet valley, she falls in with a band of veterans from the wrong side of a recent civil war. She quickly realizes that there is more going on in the valley than what meets the eye. The focus of the turmoil and tension is the former nobleman and owner of the crumbing castle where she now resides. Not one to do nothing, Wren sets about trying to improve the situation.

My writing/editing plate is almost always full. I have two short stories in the works. One is a mystery/romance about a maid of all work in a Regency boarding house who gets caught in the secrets swirling around the two male residents.

The other is a side story related to Duty: a novel of Rhynan. It is not going to be a happily ever after romance, though. I wanted to explain the significance of a certain prop to a secondary character in Duty.

Then there is the epic prequel to Exchange I have planned. Romance, interplanetary intrigue, and politics are on the agenda for that one.

How do your values show up in your writing? What do you want readers to take from your writing?

I write Clean or Sweet Romance, which means there is no sex on the page. I believe there are some areas that need to remain intimate between husband and wife and not on the page for everyone to read. My characters also watch their language, usually. If they do swear, I don’t write the words on the page. I want to write books that I can hand to my children when they are old enough to appreciate them.

I hope my writing reflects my beliefs and values, but I work hard not to preach at the reader. I also seek to entertain, edify, and lift up the reader. I want them to walk away from my books feeling encouraged.

What do you look for in a good book?

An interesting premise, quality writing, solid characterization, a plot that moves the book along, and a satisfying ending make up a combination that is hard to find. I find I value topics that interest me, writing style, and characterization highest when evaluating a book, though the other aspects need to be there in some measure.

What are some of the best social media, marketing, and publicity tips you’ve come across?

First, have a great product. Edit, take criticism, revise, and learn. There is no such thing as perfection and writing is a journey.

Second, on your social media accounts, offer similar things or information that touch on the interests of your audience. For instance, I write fantasy based heavily on history. So I post on my Facebook page and twitter account about historical articles that interest me. I am a writer and some other writers follow my page. Adding articles, pictures, quotes that interest them draws them to interact on my page and make it something they look for when they log on to their account. The same goes for reading related quotes and extras.

 I begin promoting a book while I write it. Offering quotes, new sentences, and other tidbits as I write invites the followers to invest in the book even before it is finished.

In all areas, I try to be helpful, engaging, and supportive. Going out of my way, I can make a new friend, someone to share the publishing or reading journey with me.

Also, once you finish one book, start writing the next. The bigger you back list the better your income. Keep growing by adding quality new novels, novellas, and short stories to your list of published work.

Book Tour Guests - Authors from all over the World, Supporting the Culture and Environment









     



Trad Online is a French language service provider. All types of content, to and from a growing number of languages- truly a global venture.
We are proud to be involved in a number of side projects, such as this one, by supporting culture and the environment in a time of economical downturn.



You can see who we are and what we’re up to on Facebook and Twitter


                                       

 Book Synopsis

Fifty professional translators provide a unique insight into their country's culture

All those countries you've never been to, all those words that sound familiar though the meaning lies hidden, all the people you wish you'd met...

How can we bring it all together? This was our incentive, as language and culture

professionals and enthusiasts, in creating a crowd-sourced book like no other, and show you the world... between the lines.

Natives from fifty countries give you a rich account of what it means to be a part of life in their homeland: you'll find out what events shook their lives, and what songs kids sing in the streets, not to mention a plethora of sayings and words to make you sound like a local.

All profits go straight to Trad Online's favourite NGO, Planete Urgence, whose aim is to help people in poor areas by organising local actions, such as planting trees.

Please visit their website for more details: http://planete-urgence.org (French)

Pop on over to our book blog, http://www.tradonline-books.com where you can find interviews and pictures from our contributors, and more material we just couldn't fit into the book, that you'd enjoy anyway!

[Translators] share many of the same responsibilities as journalists but remain low profile and receive little appreciation or recognition for their work. "THE WORLD IN WORDS" is a celebration of these learned individuals and the world they serve. Good luck!

Excerpts from authors’ interviews

FROM URUGUAY: EMILIANO BENTANCUR

The book not only helps directly in the [global warming] struggle, but also makes that
statement with utter clarity, as it gathers efforts from individuals from completely different
countries and directs them towards one common goal. If everyone involved in the project
gives their best towards promoting it (and I’m sure we will), we could create a chain effect
which will greatly benefit the whole world!

FROM THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: MARIE BENZO

It’s an avant-garde initiative. It’s the first step towards what I foresee as the first of many
contributions, expressed by and for linguists, but also, professionals who are human
beings, who have dedicated themselves to learning, to excelling, to teaching future
generations of rising talents, who will also one day dedicate themselves to this impressive
work. Why do I say impressive? Because if few words can be used to describe it,
impressive is definitely one of them.

FROM ETHIOPIA: EYOB FITWI

I liked the idea of helping give a deeper understanding of a country. I also wanted to
participate and contribute towards something worthwhile, and I felt that this was a good
enough reason.


FROM ARMENIA: SHUSHAN MELIK-ADAMYAN

New ideas always appeal to me, and I feel that bringing a piece of your life to others,
making them see your own country as you see it is most rewarding! It is as if you
become the ambassador of your country, you have to save its face, but you also need to
be sincere and show your country as it is, with vices and virtues, with national
peculiarities and traditions.

FROM ITALY: CLAUDIA SALAMONE

Working with emails and Skype, we may get in touch with many translators from other
countries and cultures, but we hardly have the chance to have a real cultural exchange
via the Internet. This book is a way of going beyond our actual work, enrich our
knowledge about other cultures through the eyes of people who share our common
interest and love for languages and communication.

Book Tour Guest-Author David Swykert





Author Bio:


DJ Swykert is a former 911 operator writing fiction. His work has appeared in: The Tampa Review, Monarch Review, Sand Canyon Review, Zodiac Review, Scissors and Spackle, Spittoon, Barbaric Yawp and BULL. Children of the Enemy, a novel from Cambridge Books. Alpha Wolves, a novel by Noble Publishing. You can find him on the blogspot: www.magicmasterminds.com. He is a wolf expert.


Author Interview:

1. When did you know you wanted to be a writer? What were some of your first steps toward making your dream a reality? 

I don’t believe I ever thought about it in terms of a career. I had a good reading aptitude when I was young and liked reading adventure stories. The first thing I ever wrote was a poem to a potential girlfriend as a teenager. It wasn’t very successful, she went off to college and I never saw her again. I started many manuscripts over the years, but the first one I wrote to completion was Children of the Enemy. It then sat in a trunk for almost two decades before I found a publisher for it. 

2. What 3 adjectives best describe you? 

I’m curious, honest, and a realist.

3. Tell us about your books. Genre, titles, any favorite characters? What can we look forward to from you in the near future? WIP’s, upcoming releases 

Children of the Enemy is in the crime genre, a brutal story about the Detroit drug business. I like the anti establishment hero Ray in the story, he’s a bit of an underworld version of Dirty Harry.

 Alpha Wolves was written a decade ago, it’s a historical romance and sequel to an earlier book, Maggie Elizabeth Harrington, which is out of print. It deals with two of my favorite themes, romance and animal intelligence. Maggie acquires a wolf, and a husband, in the story.

 The Death of Anyone is a love story and mystery about two Detroit Homicide Detectives searching for a killer of young girls. It’s a mystery, but the relationship of the two detectives is a big part of the story.

How do your values show up in your writing? What do you want readers to take from your writing? 

No matter how carefully we disguise it there is always a portion of ourselves in our protagonists. My own beliefs, though veiled, are apparent in the major characters in my stories. 

4. What do you look for in a good book? 

I like books with a conclusive ending. I want a story I learn something from. I like books that thoroughly explore the characters as much as the conflict they are trying to resolve. 

5.What are some of the best social media, marketing, and publicity tips you've come across? 

First, write a good book, tell a good story. I think for building a platform the best source are book blogs. It will take time, but if you have a good story and get it front of readers, eventually you’ll build a following.  

About the book:



Alpha Wolves is a historical story about a woman in love with two men who is faced with the reality she must choose between them.

Author Interview:



• Who inspires you? 


My family. I get much too serious about everything so I look to my hilarious husband and crazy boys to keep me laughing and focused on what matters most.


• Where do you find your ideas? Does something trigger them? Do you carry around a notebook in case inspiration strike?


Most of my books are inspired by nightmares. When I awake in a cold sweat and find myself still pondering the nightmare days later I know it's a good one to write about. My other source of inspiration is running, ideas just come as I try to distract myself from the pain!

• How do you research your books?


I hate research! I'm really lazy, I bug friends who are knowledgeable about the subject or Google it online and find the experts, then email them and ask a million questions.


• Have you written your entire life? Have you always considered yourself a writer?

No. I have always loved to read, but didn't allow myself to dream I could become a writer. After the birth of my second son I was fighting postpartum depression and napping a lot. My mom came to visit, kicked me out of bed and said, "You need a hobby, go write me a book." I obeyed like the good daughter I am. Haven't had time for a nap since.



• Why do you write? Is it something you've always done, or always wanted to do?


I write because I feel incomplete when I don't write, plus those people in my head who want me to tell their story keep bugging me if I don't write. 


• What is your writing process?

I have a nightmare and start writing about it then I see other scenes in my mind as I run or scrub toilets (fun inspiration, eh?). I get it all down on paper then I revise and revise and revise. Someday I'll get organized and outline, but that doesn't sound like as much fun.



• If you could visit a place for research, where would it be?

Italy. Don't know how much research I'd get done but it would sure be fun!


• Where do you want to go with your writing career? Where do you see your writing career in five years?
I want to entertain readers with clean and fun romantic suspense. In five years I hope to have at least ten more books on the market and still be enjoying the experience of writing while raising my cute boys.
Thanks for having me on the blog!
Hugs,
Cami

Welcome to The Next Big Thing blog hop




Welcome to The Next Big Thing blog hop!!! Is this a chain letter for authors? No. 

Does it promote hopping as a creative outlet for those suffering from writer’s block? 

Nope.

The chance to participate came from my LinkedIn buddy and fellow author, Dianna Bellerose. 

Many thanks, Dianna, for this great imposed--, I mean, opportunity! To get to know a bit more about

Book Tour Guest- Author Hunter S Jones




Bio:

I live in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I write books and stories. There is nothing you will ever know or learn about me as interesting as the art form I create.


Author Interview:


1.What inspired you to begin writing?

Thank you for asking Dianna, I have always written articles for fashion, rock & roll and art. A few months ago I suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and major complications. It has given me time to be completely creative for the first time in my life.

2.How did you decide to publish this book? Why?

With a complete lack of mobility I have been able to research and write on a daily basis.
That combination of events has given me time to research and write. Everyone copes differently with life's setbacks. I drew on my days in the music business to help me understand copyrights and publishing well enough to feel confident in self-publishing my debut novels.


3.What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

The biggest challenge to writing Fables of the Reconstruction was the middle of the book. I knew how it would begin as well as what the ending would be. I eventually cut over 15000 words out of the original book before it was formatted to Amazon.

4.Most writers are readers. What books are on your "to-read" list?

Currently, I'm reading The Book of Paul by Richard Long. Next on the list is...well, so many great writers to choose from...I'll not choose a favorite and read the next few based on alphabetical order by the title of the book. That seems fair.

5.-- Question for fun sake---what was your favorite childhood meal and why?

Great question Dianna! As a child I loved French Toast covered in syrup.


Blurb:

Pomba Gira Mysticism. Creole Voodoo. The zombie apocalypse.

Fables of the Reconstruction is the story of a Belgian pimp living in Victorian London's notorious Whitechapel District. He possesses a 'magic' powder,and claims to be un dead. He believes in Pomba Gira mysticisms & follows Creole Voodoo. There is a modern, surprise twist to the book's ending. Enjoy it now-only on Amazon.com

Meet Pierre von Minzle and Mary Montague. They are the Adam and Lilith of today's zombie apocalypse. Fables of the Reconstruction is a playful yet graphic sexual adventure consisting of what might have been with what possibly might be happening now.  This ain't your daddy's shotgun zombie story.
