“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn’t to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course … until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.

Author Interview

1. Where did the story idea come from for WWW?
I was actually in the middle of writing a completely different story when the idea came to me. I was laying in bed thinking about how when I went to summer school before my senior year, it really changed me. And that was that. My story was born. Sadie’s character came first. And I didn’t even know there would be two male characters until I was in the middle of writing the book. Things can happen like that when you don’t expect it.
2. How did you design such a beautiful cover?
I was lucky enough to meet a photographer who lives in Georgia. I wanted the models to be real teens who weren’t stock models. She did a private shoot just for the cover and within a few weeks, we had the shot. Then, from there the designer made it into the cover you see today.
3. One of the characters in the book is named Kyleigh after your daughter, does the fictional character share any qualities with the real one?
Yes, she shares a few qualities. Kyleigh in the book has hearing loss and my Kyleigh does as well. I wanted to have a diverse character who wasn’t like every other teen girl. Of course my Kyleigh is only nine so I’m not sure what she’ll be like as a teenager, so I had to use my imagination there. My Kyleigh is gentle and kind and so is book Kyleigh. She’s everyone’s friend and I wanted that to stay true in the book as well.

4.. Contemporary romance is a new genre for you. Can your fans expect more of this? Yes absolutely. I love writing Paranormal and they can expect more of that in the future but writing contemporary romance was so much fun. I will continue to write both.Do you have a WIP that you can share with us?

Yes. I’m actually writing a book called, The Librarian. I do not have an official blurb yet for it but I can give you the rough draft.
Emme Bailey was enjoying her life as a college student until the day her Gram passed away. Emme must leave California and head back to Maine to bury the only family she ever knew. Emme only meant to stay long enough to find a replacement librarian for the library Gram owned. Being a small town librarian was not what Emme wanted for her future but when she finds a special set of books, she may change her mind. She begins reading them one dark wintery night and is pulled into the first chapter, literally. She finds herself in 1892 England on a sunny day staring at the ever so handsome Jack Ridgewell. With each chapter Emme learns that you can truly fall in love with a character in a book. Full of deep earth shattering romance these books show Emme that sometimes you never know what you want until you’re forced to turn the pages.
6. When can we hope to see the WIP published?
I’m planning on publishing it early 2015.

“M.C.V. Egan twists truth and fiction until you question your perceptions…it is a story of real love, triumph and search for self.” - Beckah Boyd @ The Truthful Tarot

On August 15th, 1939, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykøbing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland. With the world at the brink of war, the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt. The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust.

The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve “one of those mysteries that never get solved.”

Based on true events and real people, The Bridge of Deaths is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through conventional and unconventional sources in Denmark, England, Mexico and the United States. The story finds a way to help the reader feel that s/he is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions.

Cross The Bridge of Deaths into 1939, and dive into cold Danish waters to uncover the secrets of the G-AESY.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

MCVEganM.C.V. Egan is the pen name chosen by Maria Catalina Vergara Egan. Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family. From a very young age, she became obsessed with the story of her maternal grandfather, Cesar Agustin Castillo–mostly the story of how he died. She spent her childhood in Mexico. When her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. in the early 1970s, she moved with her entire family to the United States.

Catalina was already fluent in English, as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There she won the English award, despite being the only one who had English as a second language in her class. In the D.C. suburbs she attended various private Catholic schools and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1977.

She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France, at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish kind, not the football player kind), Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish businesspeople. She then returned to the USA, where she has lived ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish.

Maria Catalina Vergara Egan is married and has one son who, together with their five-pound Chihuahua, makes her feel like a full-time mother. Although she would not call herself an astrologer she has taken many classes and taught a few beginner classes in the subject.

She celebrated her 52nd birthday on July 2nd, 2011, and gave herself self-publishing The Bridge of Deaths as a gift.

GOLD James Saves the Moon Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,  10656290_10153090139793056_406760879_ncerfiicate

Just wow so surprised and excited. My first book James Saves the Moon was awarded the Gold medal from Readers Favorite International Book Awards Gold Medal Children’s Fantasy /Sci-Fi.   https://readersfavorite.com/2014-award-contest-winners.htm#book11891 The awards were announced September 1.  I was expecting honorable mention. Here is the review of James Saves the Moon from Readers Favorite. https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/11891  Thank you Readers Favorite reviewers and judges for awarding James Saves the Moon with the gold.

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers’ Favorite

“James Saves the Moon”, written by Wendy Nystrom, is a delightful children’s picture book that combines a child’s imagination with Icelandic mythology. The illustrations by Jim Weidman, in a blue tone with colorful characters, lend a mythological feel to the story of a young boy (James), who sees the moon over one of the high mountains and decides that if he climbs to the top of the mountain he can reach out and touch the moon. Slipping quietly out of his bedroom window, he sets out on his journey. On his way up the mountain he stumbles over some rocks and disturbs one of Iceland’s mythological figures (Syvok), who joins him on his journey. They suddenly realize that unless they move faster, the moon will leave before they make it to the top of the mountain. In order that they can move faster, Syvok summons a dragon (Matthias), who allows them to ride on his back. They discover that the moon is stuck on the mountain and they will have to help get it unstuck. The three work as a team to set the moon free and while doing so, James truly does touch the moon.

The color of the illustrations by Jim Weidman and the very well-written story by Wendy Nystrom make “James Saves the Moon” a rare treasure for a children’s picture book. Its simplicity combined with the kind of story that stirs the imagination of a child make it something that will stick in the mind of the reader for a lifetime. This book gives a little bit of a taste of the colorful and flavorful history of Iceland and its traditions. It is highly recommended for its ability to help stir a child’s imagination. A wonderfully simple and delightful tale.

I am truly honored and proud to receive this award. I began writing while living in Iceland 2005, while keeping my then 7 year old son up on his english while he was becoming fluent in Icelandic. We were running out of books he liked and I was rather upset their were not more adventure books. My son wakes up and tells me the adventures he has while the rest of us are sleeping. One day for real he ran to tell me the moon is sitting on the mountain. “I am going to climb the mountain and touch the moon” The next day after I had a wonderful dream I hand wrote the 1st draft of James Saves the Moon. My son and Iceland unlocked my imagination and I began to have vivid dreams and writing more adventures. I now have 4 books adventures in this series published with Anchor Group Publishing http://anchorgrouppublishing.com/, https://www.facebook.com/anchorgrouppublishing.  I am working on two adult novels and two more in my kids series. I want to thank Anchor Group Publishing for adding me. I love being part of Anchor Group Publishing. I also want to thank my fans, family and friends all of you have supported me on this writing adventure. I really want children to have adventure and open their imagination so in the future they will bring new ideas for our world.

EL – 204 Cover Reveal by Lucian Barnes Adventure

Standard

Good Day Folks,

I have a busy blog today. I was suppose to blog this on the 12th.So excited can’t wait to read this book EL-204 from the talented Lucian Barnes.

 

 

EL-204

You may know Lucian Barnes from his DESOLACE
series. While EL-204 is much different from what you have come to know
from Lucian, you are in for a treat. And without further ado, the cover of EL-204.

 

 

Ahhhh … how about you find out what EL-204 is all about first.

For Jason Lambert, a prominent M.I.T. geneticist, fear of natural
death has become a thing of distant memories. His latest concoction has,
in a sense, increased his longevity and made him nearly immortal.

Over
the past one hundred years, the technological advances of medical
science have rendered the deadliest diseases of the twentieth century
insignificant. Cancer, heart disease, and AIDS are no longer a death
sentence. Serums have been developed to eradicate the problematic cells
and their growth.

When he meets a beautiful woman, his world is
turned upside down. Add to this the government’s sudden interest in his
research, and things begin to spiral out of control. We all know what
happens when the military gets involved. Greed takes over, and ethics
are pushed to their boundaries. Will Jason be able to juggle his
responsibilities without compromising his integrity, or will his
experiments lead to the evolution of a new breed of monster?

Are you ready to see it? Can’t wait any longer? Here it is. Another talented work of art from Kate Cowen.

The cover of EL-204 by Lucian Barnes. Coming this fall to you from Anchor Group Publishing
