Blurb:
Four months ago, Ember Lonergan made a decision that changed everything. She brought back a life, and it cost her a life in return. Only magic kept the pack from suffering the severe consequences of Ember’s rash decision. She thought the secret would stay buried forever. Josephine ensured them the spell would hold and the Grove would never know what they’d done.
But that was before Silas. Silas changed everything. He believes Ember is the only thing standing between him and the love he’s carried for over a century. He’s determined to take everything she loves away from her starting with her pack, and he has plenty of help. He’s got the original coven, he’s got Quinn, and he has a magic that rivals the gods.
The pack can only beat Silas by standing together, but that’s not as easy as it once was. People are keeping secrets, half the pack is crazy, and two of them are currently dead. Despite all of this, Ember still believes she can fix it, that she can save them all, she just needs more time. But just when she’s convinced she’s finally figured it all out, new players enter the game.

Dick Denny Author Interview


A veteran of the 82nd Airborne and a graduate of Auburn University. SCUBA dives, sails, hikes, camps, and has summited Kilimanjaro. Dick Denny is a disappointment to his family, a fun guy to be around, and a handy guy to have about in a pinch.

1. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

To be perfectly honest, i’m not sure “a writer” is something I am actually.  At least that’s not how I’d define myself. I’m just a guy with a hobby that makes me money as opposed to guys who like to modify their cars!

That said I’ve always had stories, I always wrote.  Not that there was much quality to a lot of it. But i’d say it was 9th grade when someone seriously told me “you could do this.”  So let’s go with that… 9th Grade.

2. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

I don’t have a great writing work ethic.  I’ll go weeks without writing anything. Then I’ll sit down and pound out ten thousand words in a day.

3. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I like to pace and have both ends of a conversation out loud, that’s how I work my dialogue.  I also get into a flow with music.

4. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Well, anyone who says they get their info from only one source is either an idiot or a liar.  

I can’t speak for everyone, but for me, most of the information and ideas come from experience.  

I read a lot of history, because i’m that guy; but it’s also a great source for ideas.

I guess a lot of it depends on what you want to write.  I also like looking for logical incongruities in sources.  The MacGuffin in Hell For The Company is the Fiery Sword.  It’s mentioned in Genesis as being placed to guard the gates of Eden after the fall, then IS NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN.  The entire Nick Decker series is built around the thought problem of “Well what happened to it?”

Wikipedia is also a great source for a fiction writer, because it’s handy.  Also it works because with fiction it doesn’t really have to be accurate.

5. When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I started a lot of books over the years.  I finished the first when I was thirty one.  It’s still sitting on my laptop basically having never been read by anyone!

6. What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I like hiking, camping, shooting, SCUBA diving and other stuff.  I walk three to five miles a day. I climbed Kilimanjaro. I like playing with our cats.  I try to live the life less ordinary.

7. What does your family think of your writing?

I’m pretty sure they’re proud, but i’m also pretty sure none of them have read any of it.  

8. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

  I know it sounds silly, but honestly, the simple fact that people wanted to read it at all.  That still trips me up.

9. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

I have completed six, one has been published, three more are in the can and in the pipeline to be published.  

I’m not sure I have a favorite.  In a weird way they’re all me, and in a weirder way none of them are me.

I will say Hell For The Company is funny and full of action.

10. Speaking of favorites which is your favorite character, couple or thing to write about?

Hell For The Company was an experiment for me to write a story from the first person POV.  Nick Decker, was REALLY fun to write. Nick and Gretchen are a fun couple, but i’m pretty sure my favorite is a pair in an unfinished SciFi trilogy i’m working on.

I won’t say I like writing action, but I will say it flows for me easier than just about anything else.

11. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

I guess if I had any suggestions it’d be these two:

1:  DO THINGS.  Go on trips, have adventures, get banged up trying something, get punched in the face.  If you want to write action, experience some. Listen to people different than you. Have regrets of action not inaction.  Every once in a while buy a ridiculously expensive bottle of Champaign and open it for no special reason. Join the Army. Play D&D (nothing higher than 3.5 edition, but seriously if you want to work characters this is a great exercise).  Be stupid and pay for it.

2:  JUST WRITE.  Want to know the hardest part of writing a book?  Want to know the hardest part of climbing Kilimanjaro?  Want to know the hardest part of jumping out of a C-5, C-17 or C-130?  Just deciding to do it.

12. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I’m not getting a Santa Clause amount of mail, but the few messages I’ve gotten have been positive, especially from other veterans.  

The publishers tell me there are a lot of reviews on Amazon but I don’t read them, because (as selfish as it sounds), I don’t care.  I don’t care if people like my books or not, because I didn’t write them for anyone else. They say “know your audience,” but ultimate, your first audience is YOU.  Write for you, and even if no one else reads it what have you lost?

13. What do you think makes a good story?

Characters.  I wholeheartedly believe that plot is really inconsequential if you have great, readable, relatable, logically consistent characters.  

That last one, “logically consistent” is a big one though.  I’m going to draw some ire from the DCEU fanboys but one of the huge reasons those movies are bad is because the characters aren’t logically consistent.  Superman letting thousands of people die fighting Zod then snapping his neck to keep him from burning one family… What the crap Sup’s! What about everyone in every building you wrecked.  

Batman and Wonder Woman arguing about resurrecting Sup’s in Justice League… the characters were so ill defined either of them could take either argument and would still be equally difficult to emotionally invest in or believe.  

So for me, a work begins and ends with it’s characters.

14. What have you found most helpful in marketing your book? What have you found least helpful? Is there anything you want to warn authors to stay far, far away from?

I’ll be honest, Foundations Books has a great team for marketing and ads and I would be lost in the sauce without them!   

15. Who created your cover art? If you did it yourself, could you explain how you did it? If someone else did it, how did you hear about their services? What was it like working with them?

A sweet Canadian lady named Dawne Dominique had done the cover art and she is a joy to work with.  I am not a visually artistic guy, and Dawne swings for the fences where I would screw up T-Ball.

16. Do you have an editor? Did you edit your own manuscript? Do you have advice for other authors editing it themselves or hiring someone else?

I got a buddy who is in journalism who line edited some of my stuff.  His name is Bradley Eugene and his rates are reasonable if you can get him.  

When self editing, read your stuff out loud.  #1, you’ll hate your own voice. #2, you catch a LOT, and it helps with rhythm and flow.

Foundations has their editing team.  I worked with Steve, he’s a red pen with a sense of humor about it. 

17. Where have you decided to publish your books? (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, etc.)

You can find my stuff (just one so far, 3 more coming in editing stages so far) on any online vendor both in ebook and physical copies.  

18. Did you format your own book? Did you run into any trouble formatting it? Do you have any advice to fellow authors about formatting their books?

Steve, either by himself or with his team, did the formatting because again.  I’D HAVE NO CLUE WHAT I’M DOING. I just pound out pages. I leave the rest to more competent people.  

19. Do you have a current work in progress or a book coming out soon? Tell us about them

Book 2 Paved With Good Intentions and Book 3 Abandon All Hope of the Nick Decker Series should be coming out soon.  

I just finished another book tentatively entitled A Matter of Honor, Jim is a mercenary out for justice.  Tatyana is an assassin having an existential crisis.  They have the same list of five names that need to die… A love story?

I think the story is interesting if for nothing more than Jim is representative of the veterans experience.  Not that the veterans experience is the same for everyone, but i’m pretty sure there will be plenty of former grunts who could read it and think, “Yeah, I get that.”  

But like I said before, I did it for me, aka my most critical and adoring audience.

I gave her the simple, profound and unfiltered truth. “Girls like you leave guys like me. Guys like me don’t leave girls like you.”

Jenna Greene Author Interview


Bio: Jenna Greene is a writer and teacher from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. She is an avid dancer, dragon boater, and semi-professional napper. She lives with her husband, Scott, and daughter, Olivia.
  1. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Apparently, I’ve been a storyteller since the moment I could talk. (And it looks like my daughter is following in my footsteps). The writer part came a few years later. It’s been part of my identity for so long that I can’t even pinpoint the moment.

  1. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

As a mom to a toddler and a full-time teacher, it’s sometimes tricky to fit time in for writing. Luckily, I do well in short bursts, during nap-time, or after my daughter goes to bed. I write a lot during the summer also.

  1. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

When I write, I wear a tiara. I like having my hair out of my face, and looking pretty. Plus, my husband knows not to disturb me when the tiara is on.

  1. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

The ideas comes from everywhere. Sometimes characters are inspired by people I know, or by images I see in a book. Daydreaming is very helpful in the writing process too.

  1. When did you write your first book and how old were you?

My first novel, IMAGINE, was drafted when I was in university. I believe I was 19-20 at the time. Of course, the book went through several revisions after, as my skills as a writer grew.

  1. What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I’m a huge fan of naps. (I also dance and coach dragonboating).

  1. What does your family think of your writing?

They are proud of me, but it’s funny because I come from an extended family of non-readers. My family is mainly scientists. Still, they encourage me, and come to book signings, and buy everything I write.

  1. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

How long a process it can be, and that editors usually know what’s best.

  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

I have written five books. I love each one, but it a different way.

  1. Speaking of favorites which is your favorite character, couple or thing to write about?

In my IMAGINE series, I love the brownies, Alana and Petie. They are quirky and innocent and sweet.

  1. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

Just write. Go forward and don’t spend every minute re-reading what you’ve written. Get words on paper, and then you can go from there. It’s easy to edit something. A blank page can’t be altered or improved.

  1. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I get Facebook messages and some emails. They want to know about different characters and what will happen to them.

  1. What do you think makes a good story?

Good characters that aren’t perfect but are still people we can look up to. A bit of adventure and some unexpected moments.

  1. What have you found most helpful in marketing your book? What have you found least helpful? Is there anything you want to warn authors to stay far, far away from?

I find social media helpful – and free! – but it takes a lot of work. I’m testing out radio interviews right now, and having fun with them, so we’ll see if they help produce results. I’d tell new authors to network, as that is the most important way for people to find new avenues to reach readers.

  1. Who created your cover art? If you did it yourself, could you explain how you did it? If someone else did it, how did you hear about their services? What was it like working with them?

I work with small presses and they arrange the cover art. I am allowed a say, but honestly, they do a terrific job with little help from me.

  1. Do you have an editor? Did you edit your own manuscript? Do you have advice for other authors editing it themselves or hiring someone else?

I’ve used an editor before I’ve submitted a manuscript. I’ve also been assigned an editor to polish my books. I love editors because they can see what I can’t and I agree with 95% of their suggestions. I’ve learned that I can cut out far more than I think and still have the story make sense. In fact, most of the time it improves the pacing.

  1. Where have you decided to publish your books? (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, etc.)

My books are all on Amazon and are available in ebook as well.

  1. Did you format your own book? Did you run into any trouble formatting it? Do you have any advice to fellow authors about formatting their books?

I formatted my novel HEROINE, as it is self-published. I’m not a huge fan of the process. I think next time I’ll hire someone that is more meticulous.

  1. Do you have a current work in progress or a book coming out soon? Tell us about them

I have a novel that was released a few weeks ago, which is the third in a YA fantasy series. The books are called IMAGINE, REALITY, and HERITAGE, with the latter just being released. Come January 2019, I’ll have a new book, REBORN being released, which will be the start of a new YA series.


The Imagine Series: Imagine, Reality, Heritage
Heroine
Coming in January 2019: Reborn

Infiniti chewed her ghostly bottom lip as I stomped to the center of the room, barking orders. “Dominique, get to the back of the room. Trent, come with me.” Trent and Dominique stayed close, neither one wanting to break from the other.
“Oh my God, Fleet, they’re gearing up,” Infiniti said, her translucent form alternating between being in the house and looking outside. “They’re putting on vests and things.”
“We gotta move,” I urged Trent and Dominique. “Now.”
“Yeah,” Infiniti echoed. “Like, right the hell now.”
Trent planted a kiss on Dominique. “I’ll be right back, I promise.” Letting go of her, he came over to me.
With no time to focus on anything but our mission, I gripped his hands. “Concentrate on your energy. Think of the Boardman, think of the year 1868.” Standing with Trent, a Supreme Transhuman with incredible yet unharnessed abilities, I had to believe he could help me get to 1868. He kept glancing at Dominique. I gave his hands a death-grip squeeze. “Listen, man, I need you to be right here with me, got it?”
He blew out, his stare fixed on me. “Got it.”
“Good. Help me get there, and I’ll get the job done. Okay?”
“Okay,” he answered. “And I’ll break our connection right before you time jump.”
“Exactly,” I said. 
“Okay,” Trent muttered. “I can do that.”
I had no idea if he could do it or not, but it didn’t matter. We needed to act. With my face cast down, I closed my eyes and pictured the Boardman River area in my mind. Back in 1868 we lived in small, simple cabins—Stone and Caris, Dominique’s parents, were in one cabin with Dominique. My brother Farrell, our friend Jake, and myself were in another. There was also a third cabin for visitors. Traveling to a time and space I inhabited would merge my current self to my other self. All I needed to do when I arrived was find Tavion and kill him. 
“They’re coming to the door!” Infiniti cried out in a panic.
Commanding my power to flow from me, I kept the cabins, the woods, and the river clear in my mind. “Go there,” I whispered.
My skin warmed. My insides tingled. My body lifted off the ground. Opening my eyes, I saw shades of gray and blue energy swirling about the room. The vapors crackled with sparks. Heat started filling my airways. It was working.
“They’re ready to kick the door down!” Infiniti screamed.
Dominique held up her hands, protecting herself from the tornadic-like activity in the house, her hair whipping wildly about her face. Infiniti dodged from inside to outside, giving a play-by-play account of how the police were about to bust in. Trent’s body shone as bright as a blue-bathed sun. I could barely look at him.
“1868! The Boardman!” I hollered to Trent. A surge of weightlessness took over me. Seconds away from the time jump, I yanked my hands from Trent’s, but couldn’t break away. His hold was iron-clad. If he had any chance of staying in this time, he needed to release me before it was too late.
“Trent! Let go!” 
In flashes of energy-filled chaos, a host of cops charged into the house. Trent turned to face them. “Get back,” he said in an eerily calm voice.
The cops slammed up against the ceiling and stuck there, like rubberized toy figures with sticky-glue on them. Their weapons clunked to the ground. Infiniti shrieked. Dominique lunged for Trent. Everything went black.
